Fasting update,

January 25, 2009

Sometimes it’s difficult to start one of these blog posts because I’m not really sure I have anything to say.  Wow, with a beginning like that can you even wait to see what I’ll right next!?

HungryThe fasting has gone well thus far.  Mostly, I’ve been drinking these meal-replacement shakes twice a day and then making dinner for myself.  I’m very proud of the fact that I made some pulled-chicken (with Sonny’s bbq sauce!) in the crockpot the other night and used the leftover chicken stock to make a soup.  It was actually pretty cool and quite frugal of me if I do say so myself!  One of the problems has been that because I exercise great restraint for most of the day I feel the need to overindulge myself at night.  It me reminds me of that Muslim holiday where they don’t eat at all during the day but then get jacked up at night… only, I’m pretty sure I’m not having as much fun as they do and I don’t want to kill all the infedels.

Anyway, I also went and saw The Dark Knight in IMAX yesterday and I must say that the IMAX shots themselves were awesome.  Several of the exterior shots flying over Gotham and Hong Kong were done this way and it was so much more immersive than the traditional 16:9.  The movie, has so many amazing points to it I believe it totally deserves the press, accolades, etc. that it has received.

The movie is also very dark.  Hence the title, I know.  But it truly was a dark film which is unusual for an action/comic book movie like this and once I got home I had to put in the very cheesy, over-the-top The Mummy to lift my mood.

Anyway, there you have it.  I have successfully updated my blog a little bit, which really is something I wanted to do and both of you that read it now need to make sure you’re updating your blog as well.  Also of note, I added pictures to this post and doesn’t that make everything more interesting!?  Give it a shot!  I only wish that I could expand the margins on my center column here where I write, because it feels to crowded right now, but I don’t think the free wordpress.com will let you change that.   Alright, that’s all I’ve got right now.  Peace out.

Still playing…

November 3, 2008

Well, I’m still playing around with the formatting and domain settings of this thing.  I can’t decide whether to go with some sort of free hosting option (extremely lame due to server downtime, doesn’t work well with wordpress or banner ads) simply forward the domain to the wordpress blog (this doesn’t allow for much customization of the blog and puts the rss feed with wordpress.com rather than my own domain) or some kind of domain mapping (which I’m not exactly sure how to do with wordpress).  So, not much has happened on the posting side of things.  Fear not, however, something is coming, and it will be worth the wait.

First Post!

October 27, 2008

Hey All,

This is, quite obviously, the first post of my blog.  Since nobody knows about this site yet, this post is mostly for test purposes.  The plan is to put any and all random stuff about my life in this space.  It’s temporary, in that I want to eventually do all the hosting myself, but the wordpress people are way cool in providing this and you can’t beat the theme options… speaking of which, what do you think of this one?  I tend to just grab one and go, but I think this one works.

In the sidebar, I’m gonna have links to other blogs that I enjoy and am subscribed to and I also hope to have a page for any music and film stuff I’m involved in.  Quite the big experiment, but should be fun.  This is also a more convenient way for me to post things than running through my facebook, although I’ll probably try to find some kind of integration there as well.  Anyway, cheers for stopping by.  Come back soon.
