After a year of silence, I'm back and I've moved my blogging activities off of LiveJournal and over to Blogger. Here's my first post over there, which explains the change.

Cheers to everyone!

Several people have pointed out that I haven't posted anything here since my Colorado trip to visit mrkvm and dnsvm. The trip was wonderful but too short. There was all manner of geeking and a good time was had by all. I also got to meet their wonderful baby girl, and spend an afternoon with another good pal and his girls (wife and daughter).

Since returning home, things have been very hectic, with amydennett's schedule seemingly a moving target that's always maxed out. This is preventing her from joining me at the sold out Spoon show Tuesday night, but skipping it is the only way for her to hold onto her sanity.

More soon, I swear!

Sitting in the airport now, waiting to board my plane to Colorado. What perfect timing for a four day getaway – we're in Day Umpteen of near-winter weather in the Boston area. Can't wait to see mrkvm and dnsvm again, and meet their new little girl. Heck, I'm gonna get to see a few more friends out there too. Whoo!

Just finished watching the season finale of Lost -- wow, what a great show! I can count the number of TV dramas that have managed to maintain this level of quality for an entire season on the fingers of one hand.

The DVD set of Season One comes out in September, presumably followed shortly thereafter by the debut of Season Two on ABC. How am I gonna get my weekly fix between now and then?

In honor of mrkvm's birthday today, here's a quickie 20 second video clip of Beans kickin' it at the Best. Soundcheck. Ever. (at Coachella 2005)

Nope, it really doesn't have anything to with mrkvm or birthdays but what the hell -- it's very cool and so is mrkvm!

Happy Birthday!

Finally started up watching Homicide again.

A year or more ago I started with the first episode on DVD, and was getting through about five a week (on the train commute you see). Somewhere about six months back I stopped watching DVDs and started either working or sleeping on the commute instead. Now that things are normalizing at work, I decided it was time to pick it up again. Of course mrkvm and dnsvm are like two seasons ahead of me now, but I'm not going to let that discourage me!

Anyway, now seemed like a good time to remind everyone that it's the best cop show ever.

My Amazon Wish List has dipped below the 500 items mark for the first time this millenium.

I don't know what's more disturbing, the fact that I've got that many things on my Wish List or that I've bought some many things that it's now under 500.

mrkvm reminded me that someone released a Tiger dashboard widget that allows you to post to your LiveJournal. If you're reading this it actually works as advertised.

This year I took a camera with me to Coachella, and came back with tons of photos.

In the process of tweaking and tagging and captioning and uploading all of them to Flickr, I realized that all together they made up a pretty good journal of my trip. So here's my photo journal of the weekend in three parts:

Behind the Scenes

Day One

Day Two

I invite and even encourage you to check 'em out, tag 'em and comment on them. A small handful of the pictures are restricted to friends and family only, so if you're not already on my friends list at Flickr just let me know.
