If you've ever wondered how much it would hurt to get a large tattoo on the back of your calf, here's a quick little equation you can use to figure it out. Take the worst pain that you've experienced in the past 10 years or so and multiply by 5. It's been 5 years or so since I got my first tattoo and apparently I had forgotten the amount of pain that's involved. Thankfully the guy who did mine was really cool and definitely knew what he was doing. It looks awesome and it only took him around half an hour or so. He basically did the outline today and when I save up the money he's going to color it in for me. I actually kind of like it the way it is though...I'm not sure if I'm going to color it in or not.

I'm so stoked...

For two reasons...first of all, I'm getting inked tomorrow. I'm getting this Japanese Koi fish tattooed on the back of my leg. It's going to be bad a$$. Here's a picture of what it will roughly look like. Mine will most likely be a black and grey piece since I don't have enough loot to go all color like I would like to. At any rate, it's going to hurt like a mamma jamma but it will be worth it when it's done.

2nd, I'm going to see the concert that I've been waiting to come to Wichita since J-Dog turned me on to the hardcore music scene back in '04 with Demon Hunter. Sunday night Underoath, Poison the Well and As Cities Burn are going to freaking tear down the Cotillion. I seriously can't wait...

some random thoughts

First of all...there's a new baby at our house. It's so awesome, I forgot how incredible they are. If you don't have one, you need to get one...go ahead...I'll wait. It will literally take your breath away the first time you hold him/her. Ours is a girl. Rather than put up my own pics you can see them here... When I was watching the nurse clean her up I was just thinking "I can't believe you can make these things at home" like she was a kit that I bought at Hobby Lobby or something. Anyway, she is amazing...

2nd, I had kind of a profound thought today when I was having lunch with my son at his school. I was sitting at the table with him and all of his little friends when I noticed a kid sitting all alone at a table across the cafeteria. I asked Conner why that little boy was sitting all by himself. He said "That's Sammy. He hits people". The kid sitting across from me chimed in "He screams too". Even though it's really sad that this little boy has to eat all by himself, in the end it boils down to a basic truth that can be applied in most situations that our world faces today. Here it is...If you scream and hit people you have to eat by yourself. Think about how much better our world would be if people would just stop screaming and hitting people. It's a simple concept kids...Think Globally, Act Locally.

Thirdly, I came across something that at first glance was so nasty I couldn't believe I was seeing it. I'm going to show you two screen shots from the MSN web page. The first I have titled Nasty.jpg (for obvious reasons). You will notice the area in the lower left hand corner that has been circled in red. The combination of the visible portion of the picture and the tagline "Escape to the Beach" were what caught my eye. Take a careful look at picture one and tell me it's not the nastiest thing you've ever seen. Then scroll down and look at picture number 2, which is what was visible on the web page once you scrolled down a bit. In the end, it turns out to be a horrible misinterpretation of a partial image. That being said, it would behoove the folks at MSN to pay a little more attention to things like screen size and resolution and how things will look if you can only see half of the picture.

Dog Whisperer

Thanks to J-Dub for calling Comedy Central and personally requesting that repeat of the episode of South Park where Cartman's mom calls in the Dog Whisperer because he's out of control. That was muey bueno.

Happy Birthday to me

Friday, May 05, 2006 1
With the annual celebration of the day I was born coming up on Sunday I've been hearing lot's of people ask me what I would like for my birthday. In order to make this easy on everybody, I've decided to post a list online. Think of it as a registry of sorts. And remember...I'm doing this for make your life easier.

  1. A new hat - here's a couple of options. Hurley and Independent Truck Company hats are cool. So is Volcom and Spitfire ('s skater stuff and no I've never ridden a skateboard in my life. Don't worry about it.) Also KU or Wichita State. I wear a size 7 3/4...I have a large melon
  2. I need a new wallet. But not some old man wallet... maybe one with with a chain on it or something. Here's a good example of something I would be down with.
  3. Currency (preferably U.S.)
  4. Books are good

Don't spend a bunch of money...and don't feel like you have to get me something. These are just some suggestions for the people who've asked me.

Increase the peace...
