The blog identity

Hmm… I had been waiting for my one hundredth post to roll around with the hopes of having something special to write for you, but that just isn’t going to be the case.

If you haven’t guessed, this is my 100th post (195 posts minus 95 Asides), which to me is quite amazing considering it came in less than a year and I’m not exactly a writer. But then, I guess that’s what actually got me to finally writing this post and maybe it will be something special, or maybe just different.

Back when this blog started with Walk This World, I told you I wasn’t a writer, yet, that’s what I think I found myself trying to be much of the time. Trying to write game, movie, music, comics or television *reviews* like I was some kind of pajama journalist/critic.

I suppose doing that kind of thing gave me an excuse to post something, but it is definitely not a strong point and that is why I have abandoned that kind of thing over... Continue reading »

Consumed Summer

Well, Labor Day is in the rear view mirror, football season has started and the hot coffee to iced coffee ratio is starting to go up. Even though Autumn doesn’t officially start until next week, it sure has felt like it for a while now. I’m sure that has more to do with the terrible weather we have had since August — I think last Saturday was the first day I had the top down on the Jeep since early-to-mid August — than the rapid fall from the playoff chase of the Sox, but I have been anxious for the Fall as it is my favorite season of the year. However, before I go on about that, I thought it would be nice to do a wrap-up of Summer consumables like music, movies, sports and whatever else that sticks out. For the sake of most things, I am going to go with the unofficial dates of Summer and say it starts Memorial Day weekend and ends Labor Day weekend (when it comes to movies, the studios want you to believe Summer starts May 1st). Anyway, between that time I consumed 29 discs and half of them stand out in my mind for different reasons. Five for being incredibly... Continue reading »

Red State Stupidity

I have been thinking about this since I read it yesterday. How dumb are these Red Staters? They go into a Dunkie and want doughnuts? What kind of Homer J. Simpson… er, yeah, he likey doughnuts.

Anyway, some of these people are *cultured* enough to drink a coffee from the Starbies across the street, but they have to be transplants, just not from the Northeast.

Still, makes you wonder if this will catch on down there. I don’t think they are changing the name to Dunkin Coffee for you to get it Cletus…

My Friend Flickr

Stars and Stripes

First off, everyone celebrate! This is my 100th Post or Page in the OB1og. That’s probably 50 more than I thought I’d get to at this point, but I guess a good chunk — 44 at current count — are just Asides, so maybe I am half-fluff.

Okay, the real point of this post is to point out to you that I have been making some adjustments to my Flickr photostream over the last month or so. Ever since I have upgraded to a Pro account, I have been playing with more features. I recently, as in today, decided to mark some photos as viewable by Friends, Family or Friends & Family only.

What does that mean to you? Well, if you aren’t one of my Flickr Continue reading »

Black Bird Steals Second

This just in: Jason Johnson still sucks.

So I attended tonight’s Sox game vs. the Tribe and the Sox dropped it 6-3 in the very sweltering heat. They couldn’t do much of anything against CC Sabathia who was throwing 98 mph heat himself and only gave up a Mark Lorretta homer off the Fisk foul pole in left. Not until the ninth did the Sox tack on two more runs with an Alex Gonzalez bomb into the Monstah Seats… or, maybe it was over them, but at that point it didn’t much matter unless we could make it to Papi, which they didn’t.

You may remember I posted about David Ortiz here and here back in June. Well, Big Papi has done it again with two walk-off hits, including a 3-run bomb last night, in his past three games prior to tonight. You think Indians manager Eric Wedge second guessed his decision to pitch to Ortiz? I’m... Continue reading »

‘Til Tuesday

I was having a hard time with a title for this post, so I went with ‘Til Tuesday because I can’t wait for Tuesday. A few things are going happen on Tuesday. It’s the start of August and I’ll be going to the Sox game with Joe, but most importantly, I am going to have me some coffee.

Yup, I’m done with my coffee *boycott* and will be back on the wagon after a five week layoff. I am going to celebrate with a large iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts in the afternoon. I think I am going to continue to not drink it in the morning though. I don’t know why either. What do you think?

So, you all remember ‘Til Tuesday right? A band out of Boston that hit in the late 80’s with “Voices Carry” and fronted by the beautiful and talented Aimee Mann? Well, my Uncle Chris likes to recount the tale that I once held the back door open for her and the band at the In-Square Men’s Bar which used to be in Cambridge. I was most likely in the back playing Star War... Continue reading »

A Tale of Two 360’s

+/- Xbox 360

IT WAS the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way-in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

Don’t be fooled, that’s about as literary as this blog will ever get. I’m just trying to drive home the title of this item, but let me see if I can relate this to the first sentence of the Dickens... Continue reading »
