My Galactica Sonatica

By | February 27, 2009

Last week I got the notion in my head that I would like to see Battlestar Galactica music composer Bear McCreary perform his pieces live. I am a huge fan of his work with the series and the two shows he performed last April were well received by everyone in attendance. Logistically speaking this would… Read More »

My Delayed Appreciation

By | February 23, 2009

In the fall of 1993 I had just turned eleven and saw something I would not appreciate until over 15 years later. I saw a lot of movies when I was growing up, but one in particular stands out. In November Mother dragged Dad and I to see Baraka in theaters. I hated it. For… Read More »

My Complete Library

By | February 13, 2009

This is not the first time I have done this, but this attempt was certainly more demanding. In July I listened to every song in my iTunes library at work. Back then the challenge was 3873 songs and seemed like such an easy task compared to the 9000 that were laid before me now. In… Read More »

My Hiatus of Shame

My Master’s Card

By | February 3, 2009

This is more of a public service announcement than anything, but thinking about the history I had in the last twelve months I wonder why no one noticed anything before. This is the story of my Petro-Points MasterCard. I signed up for the Citibank MasterCard in 2005 and it came with a four year shelf… Read More »

My Generation of Brothers

By | February 2, 2009

Mortars, MRE’s, Kraut, foxholes, oscar mike, Easy company and Hitmen Victors have been my lingo for the last month. In that time I have watched Band of Brothers and Generation Kill. One has been touted as one of the best mini-series ever made and the other was ignored during this years award season. Band of… Read More »
