Prose Decomposed #6: Owen Meaney

Uncertainty
A foundation built on nothing I could see
Secure in your immaculate perception
The last resort I ever thought I’d exercise
Now, all that I have to stand on
Grieving from a different point of view
I learned it’s meaning from you
In life and death
And continue
…But faith is just a
Silent tribute

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 [...]

I have to say over the last few years I’ve [...]

First New Album of 2011 Is A Good One

Check it:

Malory’s Le Morte D’Arthur

King Arthur is an oft cited story well known throughout modern history.  The Death of Arthur was written by a knight imprisoned during his age named Thomas Malory.  The existence of an actual King Arthur is debated, but the stories associated with him and his Knights of the Round are irrefutably a huge influence on [...]

2010 Recollective Plus 2011 Resolutions

This has truly been a wonderful year in many ways.  I started out 2010 in New Zealand with a good friend for almost a month.  It was gorgeous and easily my favorite trip I’ve taken.  The travel bug has bit and it’s an itch that isn’t likely to be scratched any time soon.  Travel is [...]
