Time to Get Back to Conversational

I haven’t written a lot lately, and part of that is due to the idea of writing more in depth and “professional” posts.  Of course, that’s antithetical in nature to why this site was built and what it’s supposed to be for.  This is not a professional site and it’s not supposed to be, so [...]

Dog Days of Winter

It’s bitter cold in Minneapolis. January 22nd and -9 as of now.
I find this time of year to be pretty tough most years. This year has been a bit better due to the trip to Costa Rica, but it’s tough to get up and out of bed when it’s extremely cold [...]

Getting Older with Fewer Interests?

Since basketball has ended and my beloved Timberwolves retired to their dens to lick reopened wounds, I’ve been mulling about the apartment with less to do.  It struck me the other day that my habits have changed a great deal.
My youthful pursuits included wakeboarding and tubing, basketball, videogames, ladies, kicking it with friends, frisbee golf [...]

Beat the Heat

It’s been a sweltering summer here in Minneapolis.  We’ve been routinely hitting nineties and even up to one hundred degrees lately.  Many out there may be thinking, “Um, I live in the Southern half of the US?”  That’s a pretty common reaction to people in Minnesota complaining.  The big difference in heat up here is [...]

Some Exercise Information

Stealing this video from a good post @ The Sunshine Spirit.  I’m continuing my search for people who write about, well, a lot of things, but do it in a fun and interesting way.  Especially those people around the Minneapolis/St. Paul areas.
Truth of the matter is that this topic hits home pretty hard.  I don’t [...]

Why are there so few blogs worth reading around MN? Or am I blind?

I love Mpls. And Minnesota in general.
I’ve worked and gone to school here in Minneapolis since getting out of SCSU in 2005. It’s a great place to live with a ton of really smart and funny people.
But…
I was looking at my blogroll and thinking why all the really interesting stuff I read is [...]

All Growed Up

Yesterday, Teresa remarked how we are adults.  She pointed out that we have curtains and tools to hang them up.  Moving in with Treesy has been nice.  We didn’t always get to see each other as much as we’d like previously, I had school and then work and she had work.  She was always really [...]

New Music: Listening Now

I’ve gotten a lot of good CDs lately, here’s a current playlist:
The Tallest Man On Earth:  All of his stuff
Rural Alberta Advantage:  Departing
Bayside:  Wasting Time
Beach Boys:  Pet Sounds
Bright Eyes:  The People’s Key
Destroyer:  Kaputt
They are all pretty good so far.  The Tallest Man On Earth will definitely make some of my favorite music this year, the [...]

Chino Latino QR Codes

They are already getting just what they wanted.  Tons of exposure and a lot of questions from people without a clue.  Chino Latino has started a campaign centered around QR (quick response) codes, which open the door to additional web hosted content.  How do they work?  A smartphone application scans the code and brings the [...]

Snowshoeing Around Lake Harriet

Yesterday I FINALLY got out to test my new snowshoes.  They are rad!  Super nice fit, easy to use and they work really well.  The powder around MN has been abundant this winter and especially as of late.  It felt really good to get outside; I’ve had some serious winter boredom setting in lately.  I [...]
