New Blog Design gets New Pics

Jul 2010

As promised here are some new pics to go with the new blog design.  I have a lot more pics than this, but this is what I have after doing HDR magic.

First four are free hand (no tripod) so may be a tad blurry…

And the next four are from July 4th weekend, using a table and a stick for a tripod :).

Shameless Plug

Jul 2010

This is just a shameless plug to get attention.  This post is to inform people that I added a scrobble widget over here. —->

And don’t forget to check out the last post entry below with all the pretty pics.

New phone!

Here is the first post from my new phone. It’s awesome and pics should come soon. I’m really digging swype. More to come!

Reason for Unfollowing…

Jul 2010

I unfollowed Nathan Fillion on Twitter a few days ago.

Last week a person posted to the internet a video of a rainbow and his reaction to it.  He was foolish enough to show great enthusiasm for said rainbow, and the internet, which as we all know can be quite cruel, made fun of him for it.  The reason I’ve unfollowed Nathan Fillion is because he joined with the internet in mocking this person.  Heavily.  Sure, it was vaguely amusing, and not “cool” in the slightest, but by joining in (and egging on) the mockery, Fillion joined in a disturbing trend.  You see, in our society, it’s not appropriate to be truly enthusiastic about anything (with the exceptions of sports and celebrities).  This aversion to enthusiasm (and to intelligence, which might be related) shows that apparently we want to be a country of boring, dull, idiots.  That attitude is not representative of the culture I want to live in, and I won’t support people who perpetuate it.

Let the man commune with nature; Gods know we don’t have enough of that these days.  For all the mockers know, that man could have very well have found God, connected with the Source, or discovered the sacred in that moment – but I forget.  That’s not very cool, either.
