Thanks to lifehacker's post this weekend, I have rediscovered Pandora. Pandora is:
"a music discovery service designed to help you find and enjoy music that you'll love. It's powered by the Music Genome Project, the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken. Just tell us one of your favorite songs or artists and we'll launch a streaming station to explore that part of the music universe."
I set up a free account with Pandora quite some time long ago that I actually forgot about it. For the music lover out there, I highly recommend that you go set up an account now! It's like having best friend with an awesome musical taste. You set up a "station" and Pandora automatically begins playing music that has similar characteristics. All I can say is, Pandora is AWESOME! I have used Pandora all day and I have found so many great bands that I didn't even know existed. Look out iTunes, here I come...!

Check out my Pandora profile here. If you take a look, leave me a comment!

See ya.

Thursday, November 30, 2006 long!

Say goodbye to Looks like Russia wanted to be in the WTO really, really bad. I'm not too worried though. Something just like allofmp3 will pop back up...the question is, where?

See ya.

I'm Back...again!

Well, it's been quite some time now since I have posted to this blog. Life has been happening...'ya know what I mean? I have been busing myself with reading, raising a new puppy (which I will expand on here in a moment), and diving head first into some new ventures. While I have been away, I am sorry to inform you that our first puppy, Webber, passed away on August 21st; he was hit by a car in front of our house. The bastard that hit him didn't even stop. My guess is that he was drunk and afriad of what had happened. After Webber was killed, we found that something was lacking in our home. We made the decision to get another puppy. The picture in this post is of our new pup, Tucker. He is a purebred AKC Black Lab. We got him when he was 7 weeks old. He is now approximately 4 months old and is getting bigger by the minute. You will notice (or not) that I have updated the format of this blog. On the right of screen you can see a picture of Tucker. If you click on that picture you will be magically whisked away to a picasa web album that I have set up for picures of him. Please enjoy them.

I am going to try an post to this blog on a more frequent basis...I had forgotten how much I enjoy it. Stay tuned...

See ya.

How I Spent My Vacation (Part 2)

My wife and I had this idea that our house was the ugliest house in the neighborhood. As you can see it was pretty ugly. I'm not sure when this color combo was considered cool, but I am sure that I'm glad I missed out on that trend. I'm not even sure what color that yellow hue is. Our neighber calls it "harvest gold", and joking ly says that he will miss it. Anyway, I decided that during my vacation that our house would get a "face lift" with an updated color.

That's me putting a coat pf primer on the house. Before I did that I powerwashed the house and scrubbed it with soap & water.

Me again. Don't I look professional with all that gear?

This is what the house looked like after it was primed. I will post some pictures of the final result when I get the shutters painted. Hopefully I will get that done this week.

Thanks again Dad for all your help!

See ya.

How I Spent My Vacation (Part 1)

This sidewalk used to lead up to our front door. When the previous owners rebuilt the porch, they decided to build it so the stairs angled off towards the driveway. In doing this they made this sidewalk completely useless. I have been mowing around it for the last 3 years. Recently I decided that I was tired of getting pissed off about the lava rock that once lined the sidewalk; so I removed it. Then I decided that the sidewalk itself had to go!

With my Dad's help, one jackhammer, 3 hours, 2 truckloads, and about 6 bottles of sports drinks later, we had removed the whole sidewalk and filled it in with...

...2 yards of dirt.

Thanks Dad for all your help!

See ya. Posted by Picasa

Spring Has Sprung!

Well, it's been over a month since I last posted to this blog. I have my Pearl Jam tickets and I'm waiting for the new album. Kate and I took a walk yesterday and I snapped these pics. I am so excited for the spring and summer. I can't wait to get the camera out and take tons of pics this season! Stay tuned...

See ya.

I am so excited. Pearl Jam is coming out with a new album soon and they are giving away the first single for free on March 8th starting at 6am. Get ready Pearl Jam fans...tour season is on it's way!

world wide suicide (2)
March 8th, at 6:00 A.M. Eastern time

What's even cooler is that they won't be including any DRM with the song so you can do whatever the hell you want with it. I wish all bands were as fan oriented as PJ and would realize that DRM is the work of the devil and that it infringes on our fair use rights.

I'm so excited about this that I am also posting this on my other blog Nothing's Sound.

See ya.

Edge of the Ice

Yesterday I saw a guy sitting right on the edge of the ice. I went back today to see if I could get a picture of his stupidity, but when I got there he was nowhere to be found. Instead I took this beautiful picture of the evening sun setting over the Saginaw River. Who would have thought our river could look so great?

Sue the T-Rex

Last weekend we went to see an exibit at the Midland Center For The Arts. It was of Sue, the largest, most complete skeleton of a T-Rex ever discovered. This was one of two traveling replicas and we were fortunate enough to have her visiting Midland. We took our neices to see it. It was a very educational adventure!!!

Her skull was enormous!

Blowing Snow

I took this shot just as the wind blew some snow off the branches above. It turned out pretty cool.

I thought I would see what it felt like to wax part of my leg. It wasn't so bad, but I'm glad that I don't have to do it on a regular basis!

Broken Retainer

I got my braces off about 11 years ago. Ever since then I have worn these retainers. At first I had to wear them 24/7 but as I got older I began wearing them once or twice a month. Last week the lower retainer broke. I am suprised that it lasted this long!
