Titanic in 5 Seconds

Yup, that about sums up the 3 hours that is Titanic, the movie.

Horror Book Club

Guest post written by Kenny Burns

I joke around that I read books like it's my job. I really wish that it was, but I'm an investment banker instead. However, that doesn't keep me from reading as many horror books as I can.

I was telling one of my coworkers that the other day and he was joking when he said that I should start a book club about it. Then I got to thinking and thought it was a great idea! So I'm working on that right now. I was looking up advice on how to start a book club a few weeks ago when I found the site and read through it. Even though I already had an internet service I'm open to change so I'm going to switch over to it.

After I sent out what seemed like a million emails and posted flyers all over the public library, I hosted my first horror book club right before Halloween and there were 20 people who showed up! But the best part was that there were actually people who I didn't know that showed up and everyone seemed really enthusiastic about it too.

Why You Hating on Blondes

A ventriloquist is touring the clubs and makes many stops to entertain the crowds.  He stopped at a small town and figured he'd do the bar scene figuring he'd get more intimate feedback from the crowd.  As he goes through a set of blonde jokes, a blonde arises from her chair and exclaims, "Alright you jerk!  I've had just about enough of you degrading all us blondes.  Why are you hating on blondes?  What makes you think you can stereotype blondes in that way?  Why do you think that a person's physical attributes would have anything to do with what their worth as a human being?  It's guys like you that keep women like me from being respected in the workplace and the community!"

With that, the crowd clapped and cheered for the blonde woman.  The ventriloquist, feeling quite flustered apologized profusely to the blonde woman.  The woman, not having any of it said, "You keep out of this, Mister.  I'm talking directly to the little jerk on your knee.  Not you!"

A Part of the Dragon Blogger Team

Hey there.  Not too long ago, I wrote about a gig that I got writing video game reviews.  Well, yesterday, my first review was published and now that I know for sure that I am on the team, I would like to happily announce that I am now part of the Dragon Blogger team!  I've watched Justin, the owner at, since I started my site and have seen him grow his site and have used his site as my personal benchmark.  Now, I'm nowhere near as successful as he is but he does provide some awesome tips on all things tech, blogging, and SEO.  When he sent out an open invitation for writers to help expand his site, I had to jump on the opportunity.  Now, my very first article on Dragon Blogger has been published. And the best part?  It's gotten some pretty positive comments.  So check out my review of Bioshock 2 here, friends and let me know what you think.  Later!

Little Metal Head in Training

Hey there. I just received a few pictures of my boy messing with the amp that I have at home. It's a small amp that I borrowed from my compa, since my 2x12 amp is out of commission. I don't want to pay a couple hundred dollars to get it fixed... but I also don't want to throw it out either... sigh. Anyways, it's been some time since I've had more than a few minutes to play. I was trying to get back into the groove of things a few months back, feeling inspired and what not, but that came crashing down in a hurry. Hopefully, my boys will pick it up too.

I gave my very first guitar to my older son for Christmas last year and I've heard him strum it a few times here and there. Reminds me of when I first got it. Not really playing anything, but messing around with the strings. Now, it seems, that they youngest is showing an interest as well. Check out some of the pics I got of him playing around the amp.
It's called bed head.
Oh yeah!  Daddy will never know I play with his toys
Now... how do I turn this thing on...
I got a fever... and the only prescription is more OVERDRIVE
Pretty awesome, no?  We also got a call from the his doctor today telling us that he tested positive for some high white blood cell count.  The first thing he asked was whether or not he was sick when we took him in for his blood work.  He was just getting over a sickness so the doc said that the sickness may be the reason for the high count.  He'd like to recheck him this Friday so I'm hoping that all turns out well.  He doesn't like the sting of the needle.  Who does, right?  Until then, later!
