Buy the ticket…take the ride!

November 12th, 2010

I saw that saying on a bumper sticker yesterday and totally love it.  It’s kinda how we roll over here.

Adam and his business partners have uprooted themselves and moved camp from Minneapolis to San Francisco to make some good inroads with their start up Evolve.

If you’re a gamer, sign up and give it a test drive.

Can you judge a person by their music?

Besides being CEO of the Household, I now have a second job and that title is, Rip Monkey. I spend much of my free time, you know that whole hour and five minutes I get during the day, when all the kids are sleeping or taking their quiet time. Yeah, well…that has turned into my new work time. Along with forgoing my am workout, you know, taking it for the team and all. Do I sound bitter? No, it must be the red wine talking.

ANYWAY, it is sooooooo interesting to see people’s music collections. I am pretty sure we could calculate some way to make money off of figuring out who buys what music and that would translate into, they would purchase this or that or the other thing and someone would pay us handsomely for that right? O.K., I don’t know, but it sounded great in my head a few minutes ago when sweat was dripping down the back of my leg in the shark tank. I digress.

Where am I, oh yeah, music and people. Well, I came across a CD that I could not pass up writing about.

Artist: Mike Boner
Album: My Ass Is Your Drum
One of the songs: Mary How Does Your Garden Groan?

The only other person on the face of the planet that would actually buy this CD would be my brother. You see, he just named his cabin, Camp Morning Wood.

Need I say more?

Shark Tank

June 1st, 2005

I have been swimming in the shark tank for two solid days.
My mother-in-law has come to watch the kids.
Hours go by and I have no idea what time it is.
It is so hot that I have an oiled-up sheen to my skin and my feet stink.
Swim fishes swim.
