The End

It is the end of the year post. And the end of the blog post.

I have been doing this blog for 10 years now. Although the past few I have been doing it less and less and less. So I am officially calling it quits. I appreciate and thank all those who have ever visited, looked at, red anything I have posted.

So much has changed since I started this stupid blog.

2017 was definitely a year of change.

And this is a big part in why the blog is ending. In the past I would have ranted, listed and talked all about the changes. But now I just have no desire to do so in a completely unfiltered public forum anymore. I don't want to share the good things or the shitty things in this manner.

I am also thinking of giving Facebook a huge break. Stop linking my posts from Instagram to it and twitter. I can't quite swear off Instagram yet. There is still something I like about it's simple interactions.

So from now on if you want to learn what is going on with me, you will have to reach out and ask me. In that case I will still be an open book.

So goodbye blog. It was fun.

I Want This More Than Anything

I am going to need all of you to chip in so you can buy me this. Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.

A 1970 Evel Knievel Triumph T100c that was formerly on display at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Kneivel famously jumped over the Caesars Palace fountains on New Year’s Eve 1967. The motorcycle is serial number XD36386 and features 500cc parallel twin, air cooled, overhead valves with a single carburetor. It has been custom painted with Knievel’s name and in his signature red, white, and blue color scheme with stars and stripes. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Caesars Palace.

Happy Birthday Elias

My first son, Elias turns 24 today.

Fucking 24!

He is an awesome kid. And is a pretty damn awesome adult too. I am very proud of him.

Although I can't believe I have a 24 year old.
It seems not that long ago that he was in grade school.

So wish Elias a Happy Birthday.

Favorite Bands

I hesitate to say Best, because what constitutes best? So saying favorites makes it clear it is purely opinion.

Cheap trick
Foo Fighters

It's Been A Month

This is definitely the longest I have ever gone without a post. Fact of the matter is, Instagram has taken over for posting pics to. I haven't really been overwhelmed to share any odd stuff I have found online in awhile. And while there is a shitload going on in my life, it is not for a public forum.

Hell I suppose I could use Instagram to also post my end of year top ten movies and albums lists. So not sure what need there is for me here.

I am not quite ready to offically call an end to an era, and truly decide to stop posting, but that day may soon be approaching.

This was Started Today 10 years ago

I don't post nearly as much as I used to. I blame Instagram.

But whatever.

I started this dumb blog in 2007 on this day.

What started as just a way to promote an alleycat race, turned into a fairly big piece of my life.

Thanks for reading.

A few facts

At some point in your childhood, your mom was holding you and put you down, and never picked you up again. You can fit Earths entire population inside Texas if it was as densely populated as New York City. There are more chicken restaurants in Seoul than there are McDonalds restaurants in the world.

Jett Is Rad

So Jett was asked if he would like to submit something to be part of a youtube video collaboration from a youtube person who has almost 21,000 subscribers.

It is for a thing called youtube poop. You reedit videos to make them odd and non-nonsensical. Jett quickly made something and is featured in the compiled video 5 times.

I think that is pretty damn cool for him.

So go check out the video (below) that he contributed to. And go check out Jett's Youtube page and subscribe to it.

Looking for People

Do you have STAY GOLD tattooed on your knuckles?

Do you know someone who does? Well someone who isn't me.

Tell them about this Facebook group that I started.

No really idea of what the plan is. Just a dumb Saturday idea.

Roxy Music

I have grown to love Roxy Music.

It took a long time.

Being a punk rock kid, how could I like such a band?

But as I continued to get older, I would hear bits and pieces of songs of theirs that really connected with me.

I now have all their albums and they are on a fairly constant rotation of play.

Your useless fact for the day.
