I have to get past the fact that Kate Beckinsale is one of the hottest chics alive, that red head kid rocks, he needs to be adopted.
Just fucking creepy, who takes this picture
First, I wish all the girls wore the blue dress to prom and there is a good chance the kid in the back has already raped, tortured and murdered someone

And The Riches, but who the fuck cares how good The Riches was. Who cares that Eddie Izzard rocked and Mini Driver was finally doing something watchable. Who the FUCK cares it won awards and was praised, lets just cancel the bitch. FX has a tendancie to yank our peters and run, look at "Over There", it was one season and they said FU loyal fans, FU. They keep toying with Rescue Me but we got it for one more season in May, 22 episodes, then we just sit back and see if they ruin something again.

The new one was very impressive, it didnt seem as childish, but they do need to get more into the action of the comic. I love the ending, I hope Downy keeps that role going for a while. I would be as upset to see Daniel Craig leave 007 and Bale leave Batman.
Star Wars Clone Wars:
I dont get into the star wars that much, so I assume if your a huge fan then this filled a small hole, but it probably made you mad with the childish jokes. If your not a fan and have a 7yr old that doesn't care less, then its perfect.
These last two I am putting the trailers on, they are both really good and just should be seen.

On with the movie.
This movie was on IFC i am going to say around '98, but between 97-99 is safe. There were two little girls, sisters, I am guessing one maybe 10-12 the other 7 or so, the main thing is one was a little older. Now the older one was into or liked to play with supposed witchcraft stuff, I cant remember if she had a book or someone was telling her this stuff. I am not sure the era, they lived in the woods. One night the older sister, gets younger sister to go into the woods and try some spell, they formed a circle with something and had to stay in it. After they did the summons or whatever it was I remember them hearing, seeing or feeling sometihng and when they did the little sister stepped outside the circle. Now we go back inside, the girls tuck in a go to bed. The little one wakes up in the middle of the night, looks in front of her at a big bookcase and on top of it was this little goat, devil dude with horns just sitting there smerking at her, scary as hell. If I remember right she tries talking to him and then hears something in the attic. She runs up there and finds this angle with his wings torn off and blood everywhere, it seemed like she new him. Now this wasnt a cheap movie, it was really well done and if I remember right it was in english, not a dub.
Oh and if anyone has been in the house in marlette, they know waking up and seeing someone watching you isnt strange, thats why that part was so fucked up. I can personaly remember back to the old house in NB having someone peer in at me, but one of the people who did it in Marl wasnt as friendly. Maybe sis you would like to start a topic on this?
Find the movie fuckers, its driving me nuts. Ryan I remember coming over and telling you about this immediatly.

The drive to flint airport was horrible, the roads where a sheet of ice and their were accidents all over. I kept calling the hot line to see, hoping, that my flight was cancelled, but no luck. I thought to how bad it would be to send my car into a low speed spin, off into the ditch, just to avoid this trip.
One last note about the trip, I had a moment of, well having a heart, at the airport. I don't mean for woman, because I fall in love every time I go to an airport. Actually I often think of a "ticketing system" that a friend and I thought up, that every year you get one license to have anyone you want. When you pick someone the ticket transfers to them, every ticket can be used twice or be redeemed for a cash value. There was a lot more to this, but for legality reason and in case i ever run for president, we should stop there. So I was waiting at gate A5 in Minneapolis, a gates is a wing that goes from A1 in the center to i believe A13 at the very end, which is a dead end. There must have been a late flight that was making people late for their connecting flight because people were running behind us on the moving walkway. About 5 minutes into the random running people I (we) heard someone making a terrible growling, huffing, death breath noise every couple of seconds. It was a heavy weight man, who resembled Al from Tool Time, wearing a hunting jacket, full beard and carrying a bag. He apparently was part of the late flight group and was making every effort possible to get to the connector. The noise and facial expression wasn't of exhaustion, but death, he looked very close to a heart attack. I made a story up for this man, father of 3 , happily married, never travels but brothers talked him into this hunting trip. He misses his family, doesn't like to fly and just wants to get home. His fear sets in when his plane lands late and the board says he next flight departs in 5 minutes. So he puts every effort into getting their, dreading the idea of spending a night in the airport, a night away from his family. I thought about Mr. Al the entire way here, tomorrow I will check the Minneapolis news, just to make sure.

TO YOU FERAL KID!!!!
Sunday, November 23, 2008
I failed before to mention that I saw SAW 32 or whatever it was a couple weeks a go. Well I am not sure if I forgot or just neglected to. The story was a Saw story and it had everything you expected. It did seem like they were doing everything they could to button up all the previous Saw's in this movie and in doing so the "Saw" style action that we are used to seemed more like a small side story than the main event. It didn't make things bad, it just made it seemed rushed when it came to the gore, even though they didn't hold back on this one. So if your a fan of the all the rest then you will more than likely need to see this one.
What a bad ass movie this was and what a ton of super nude, super hot chics. Let me start by giving some guidelines on watching this. Make sure you get the Blu-Ray copy and make sure you watch it on 50" of pure hi-def happiness. The movie was filmed to perfection and I think I need to mention the hot, fully nude, FULLY nude, woman. I do tred lightly when calling this bad ass, it really depends on your style, this one floats on bad to good. It got run over with poor reviews on IMDB, but the was either 1 star or 10 stars. Watch the trailer, read the snyopsis, but whatever you do dont read the reviews. If everything seems good so far, watch the damn movie. Bikers, babes and blood.
Its an animation prequell to a game called, um Deadspace. Lots of gore, gore and more gore, good story too. Seems to be based on some religion, I should probably have seen the first one in the serioes. Either way it perked my interest in the upcoming game

Yes I know this is a chic movie, but I did watch it and I watched it alone. I have no reason, or excuses. Its more than predictable, depressing and you figure it out immediately. I have nothing more.
Wizards of Gore:
This was disappointing, the story got boring fast and the gore wasn't all that good. The one thing that attracted me to it was Bijou Phillips and the Suicide Girls. Phillips doesn't even get naked, now after bully I think she should do xx in every movie. The suicide girls they picked for the movie were not the best, although they did do some full nudity. The "1920's" aspect of the movie made it boring for me, plus it was hard to gather if it was real time, post apocalyptic or just some alternate world.
Probably the weirdest of the movies I watched. So this guy's (David Duchovny) wife and daughter are in an accident, at the hospital they both die, well apparently god messes up and puts the wife in the daughters body instead of heavan and the daughter is caught in limbo. It takes a couple of days for David to believe his daughter/wife that its his wife in the body of his 16yr old daughter. Once this happens so begins the ackwordness of mother getting to see what bad things her daughter does and well David having a wife with needs and umm a no moral standard. The wife seems to forget she is in the body of their 16 yr old daughter and she continualy asks her husband to destroy it. Since David has a problem having sex with his daughter, the wife starts living her life and flirts with screwing high school boys. At one point you feel bad for David and say just fuck her and get it over with, then you think, maybe not thats gross. I figure it this way, he screws her and lives his life, grows old and dies. At the pearly gates well talking to the bouncers he tries to explain that god did this to him and gave him his wife back, he had to make the decision. God sits behind the gates, laughing and wispering to the bouncers "tell him to leave, I would never do that, he's sick, hehehehehe". So David heads down to hell and meets directly with Satan, satan does that because he likes face to face interaction. In my story satan is played by Cheech Marin, so read in your best Cheech voice. "Oh man thats fucked you mean he did that to you? Man I dont know what to say, I mean I would do it, but you? HAHAHA, man that is twisted, you one sick man. Tell you what grab the train to purgatory and let me talk to Jesus, so what we can do"

From Grant's Myspace:
People are now making videos calling TAPS fakers. It is to be expected, I guess. I just wish that people would give us constructive criticism and help us figure out what happened rather than just take the easy way out by saying we fake stuff.
All I can say is that whoever is making these videos is running on a LOT of assumptions.
I wasn't scrolling through random audio files. I had just heard a voice and was trying to find it on a digital recorder in the cold, then the batteries died. It is a common paranormal event. I showed several people that the batteries died.
The voice was heard through the earpieces because everyone can hear what the filmed team is doing through them. Not to mention that they replayed it through the ear pieces for everyone to hear. Now, how could we and our cameraman have heard it through our ears if it came from the equipment? Also, if it came through the earpieces then, how come we don't hear EVERYTHING that is said through those things? We only hear one voice?
We all do NOT enjoy filming the live show because there are people constantly telling you what to do and where to go etc. That is what Steve and Kristyn fell pray to on TV. If they cut back to a team that was walking in a place with no signal, then you wouldn't be able to see or hear them. Therefore, whenever they come to a team after a break, they want to check and make sure that the team is in a spot with signal. Also, if there is something they want you to address then they tell you during a break.
As far as the sound guy, we all knew he was coming. People aren't just wandering around. He just didn't get there fast enough to deal with the audio issue before we were back from the break.
As for my collar, I really don't know what that is about. There was an earpiece cable running down my sweater that I talked about in the reveal. That is the only thing that could have caused any type of tugging movement. But it was attached to my sweater NOT my jacket and the cable ran to the opposite side of my jacket from the "alleged" hand in an awkward spot. And even then, I had tried pulling on it and it didn't affect my jacket at all. Why did it move when Jay slapped my back? We recreated this event and it did it that way every time. Not sure why. I just don't see how I could have faked it. I understand it looks awkward to people. It doesn't to me because I was just being me.
This stuff just drives me crazy, I really wish people wouldn't assume we are faking stuff. We are instantly accused before we even are given a chance to really dissect it and try to figure it out. Honestly, no offense, but if the show was canceled tomorrow I would be sad yes, but mostly I would just breathe a huge sigh of relief because I would be able to go back to my quiet life with my family.
I guess it is just TAPS's word against the word of people who hate our show and the field of paranormal investigation.
OK, so here it is.
I have been hearing from people claiming there are youtube videos and so forth claiming we faked it.
Well what ever, to each their own but this is my statements and thoughts!
1 The voice:
Now that voice was so loud I heard it come through my earpiece.
I have never heard a voice that loud on a case.
At the time we heard it I asked if it had come from inside the building or outside.
I asked that directly on live TV!!
If we were faking it then would I have asked?
At the reveal I even asked Lee if a boat could have said it over a megaphone.
The reason I was asking this was because there were Coast Guard and other private boats on the water trying to keep boats from coming ashore.
Common thing someone would say if certain people happen to be in a place they should not be in would be, " Your not supposed to be here!"
Production never used my question to Lee, but it was asked.
Lee stated he did not believe so.
So, before some of you out there accuse me of faking something at least know the facts and listen to what I said on the live show, and now you know I was and still am looking for an explanation for it.
Also, I have been doing this for almost 20 years, why would I destroy that now!
If we ever faked anything and got caught SCIFI would cancel the show instantly, why chance that, especially on a LIVE SHOW?
Scifi and GH are not that important to me to destroy myself in a field that I love to be in, and Scifi would never pressure us into anything like that, nor would we ever anyhow. So those who blame Scifi, do not. They have always been 100% honest and true.
2 Grant's jacket tug!
People come up with the weirdest claims about this, I have heard all these.
1 There was a fishing line running down his jacket
2 There was a remote control that I was using to pull down his jacket
3 Grant was fidgeting with his right hand and was pulling a string
4 Grant's hand was in his pocket working some mechanism.
5 Grant's jacket tugged one last time after I checked it and patted him on the back.
Here is my responses:
1 Fishing line running down his jacket?
I checked his jacket, I even opened it up to try in show everyone at home.
There were two wires Grant had on him, one was his audio cable so everyone could hear him. That ran down his t-shirt in the front of his cloths.
He also had an IFB cable that fed up to his ear. This cable allows Grant to hear our Executive Producer in case there is an issue. This cable ran inside his sweater and up to his left ear I believe. This cable did run down his back, but inside of his cloths, it would have effected his sweater and everything else.
Also the jacket pulled in at outward motion, not a downward motion.
Also a heat signature came off the jacket when it was pulled. I have seen the footage zoomed in and it is strange.
2 A remote control?
Huh? Are you serious?
3 Grant fidgeting.
We were on an Island that was 10 to 15* colder then on the main land.
People put their hands in their pockets or near their side when their hands are cold.
If someone wants to assume he did it for a certain reason then no amount of explanation is going to change their thoughts.
4 Grant working some mechanism.
Same answer as 3
5 Grant's jacket tugged another time after I patted him on back.
No argument there, I saw it happen in the video when looking at the evidence.
I have no explanation, could have been the same thing he was experiencing happening again, or maybe something catching.
Either way he did not fake anything.
I can honestly say I have known Grant for a LONG time, spent 16 hours a day with him in the plumbing field and the paranormal field.
He has never and would never fake any evidence.
Like I said, there will be those out there who will believe what they want to believe, so be it.
All I can do it state my thoughts and feelings.
What the people who claim Grant faked stuff decide to believe is up to them.
Friday's at 9:00
Now there is a new show on Travel Channel called Ghost Adventures (click here ). Its about 3 guys whom lock themselves in supposed haunted houses for one night. They have no camera crews and no production, its just them and the cameras they set up. My tivo picked up an episode this weekend, I am going to watch it tonight and see how it is.
I am not giving up on GH, but I definitly think they need to address the problem. If anyone still isnt seeing it in the videos let me know.

A lot of you know my love for the Ghost Hunters and how I have followed them around since the beginning watching their every move. I have had nothing but respect for them and believed everything they have done. So with this you know how much this bothers me to even talk about this. To me it's like being cheated on, lol, I mean it. Now as we sit thru and read this I would like you to watch the videos in order. I also noted that this year there have been a lot more voices heard outside of the EVP world, more audible to the naked ear. I watched in total about 4.5 hours of the live event and I got to see all the hiccups that happen during a live event. I did think to myself that Jason seemed very out of it and distant from the investigation. Not that it seemed he had something else on his mind, but that he was upset or pissed at the investigation. When things would happen Jason just seemed burnt out on them, or like he didn't care. I pushed it away and thought it was Halloween and he was away from home. I continued to watch my beloved Ghost Hunters throughout the night. I heard the voice live and couldn't believe it, I thought this is amazing. I called my sister and a friend to see if they heard it, but no one had watched it yet.
Sorry for the double post of video, both are the same, cant get the one to go away
Here is the voice.
I couldn't believe it at this point, i didn't want to stop watching, but I had to. I stopped the DVR and decided to wait until the review that was the next week. Normally Josh Gates interviews them and discuss what happens on the show. The review started with no Jason and Grant, just video, they were just showing clips from the live event. Fifteen minutes in I am seeing everything I saw live, but still no Jason, Grant or Josh, what the fuck was going on? I could still the the distance Jason had during the show, it reminded me of how someone acts on a double date when he doesn't like his date.
The footage of the collar getting tug hit me hard, I couldn't believe it. I thought wow, here we have interaction between a ghost and a human. Not only did the collar thing happen once, but three times total. I was blinded by what the odd revel was showing me, true footage, I was noticing nothing more than this great capture. The reveal showed 5 quick angles and that was all, nothing more on it. Here is footage from it live when it happened.
I immediately called my sister and told her how cool it was and that there was another new episode coming on after this. After talking on the phone for a couple of minutes I rewound the tape and watched the coat tug over and over. It was then I remembered how distant Jason was and how he didn't really seem to care, like he almost was avoiding it? What is going on with him? It was about the tenth rewind I started to get mad at myself, I was getting mad because I was starting to question the coat tug. I was getting so mad that I decided I needed to go to the Sci-Fi website and read the forums, I wanted to hear from other fans that that would disprove my feelings that were starting to set in. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got to the forums, It was like hearing a girlfriend had cheated on me. People were mad and saying the same thing "Grant faked the coat footage" I read all the posts, heard all the stories and it all made sense. Was i falling victim to a conspiracy? Was this all shit and I needed to remember that they would never lie to me? People were posting things about Grant never taking his hand out of his pocket when it happened, the English guy snickering and Jason trying to avoid the stunt and getting mad. What? Whats this!!!! Jason was trying to avoid it? I had been seeing it, I had seen his distance and now I knew what it was, it was disapproval. Am i trying to form my own conspiracies now? Am I not believing the two people whom I trusted 110% I quickly went to Jason and Grants myspace pages to see if they have talked and they did. Grant swears his hand was outside the pocket and he didn't fake it, Jason says he believes Grant. i watched the footage again and was even more mad to see clearly his hand in the pocket. I wanted proof this was real, but it seemed to be slipping, the conspiracies made sense and I had seen all this, I just neglected to act on it. I didn't think it could any worse until I saw a post that read "Evidence it was fake". I opened it and read it with caution, but then there was a link. I opened up the youtube video and watched in horror as someone pointed out the bloopers and possible errors throughout the night.
Then at the end came the proof I needed, the proof I needed to realize it was fake. I am disgusted with what i saw, absolutely disgusted.
Here it is.
Next week there are having the round table show with Josh Gates, I can only hope that they nip this in the ass. I don't feel as though they will be on next season and if they are, I am confused on how I will feel about the show.
Comments are expected

WATCH THE DAMN SHOW!!!!!!
UPDATE, THE NOISES START AROUND 1:10, THERE IS A WHISPER OR SOMETHING THAT IS CREEPY
Wanting to keep with the Halloween theme I went for the scary type movie in my bag. First lets talk about some things to come out of the 90's that we liked. Porn staring Jenna Jameson, Freddie Kruger and Tom Savini's redux of Night of the Living Dead. With that lets discuss their evil counterparts, like Jenna's gang rap (sorry jenna), Robert Englund trying to act and Zombie Ninja Gangbangers (click here). Ok so now that its all clear, lets talk about Zombie Strippers. I know i am not a director, but if i have a movie with a porn stars name on it and a title stripper, we best have lots of nudity and some good ole sex. What we get is no sex, about 1.5 seconds of frontal from Jenna and then her covering her breasts for the majority of the film. Of and when they are Zombies and they strip, they start taking less and less off. Its hard to believe that this movie wasnt non stop xx action, shit Porky's had more, and its good thing they didnt try and make a movie based on their title. There was a couple of funny parts, but only a couple, it was mainly plagged with horrible acting and even worse zombies. There was a scene where female anatomy was used as a weapon, but they refrained from even getting graphic. Rent at your own risk, mainily if your bored.
Saturday Afternoon: War, Inc.
Not a lot to say on this one, just another funny and good John Cusack film. I cant really think of any bad movies he has mad, I mean some are not great, but they are all watchable. Come on, what about "Better off Dead", I can still sit and laugh through this entire film, shit almost all his 80's films are classic. War, Inc has him back as hitman (like his excellent film, grosse pointe blanc), where he has to go to a war torn country to kill someone. The movie makes fun of our political system, presidents and our ability to market almost everything. I dont want to give to much away here, so definatly read about it and if it sounds good, rent it.
Saturday Night: Tracy Fragments
Hmmmm, ummmm, hmmmmm
If you lost your copy of Buffalo 66, you could watch this.
For those of you I work with this comment will make sense, its like having TMI read a script to a movie. Now for those of you that dont understand that, TMI is a person I work with, we have nicknames for everyone. When TMI talks its like this, lets put it in numbers, if you asked him to count to ten it would go like this. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ..... 4, 5, 6, 7, 8...1, 10. So if the confusion that makes, makes any sense, then welcome to Tracy Fragments. If you rent it, there is a special feature where people can take raw footage make their own Tracy Fragments movie, well the winner made a better video that the director did.
Sunday Afternoon: High School Musical 3
Well I have watched the first two when they came out on Disney Channel, Damian really liked it, so i have seen it a few times. When the 3rd edition came to theater I figured Damian would be more than excited to see it, but when I asked he wasnt interested at all. After some asking over and over I got it out of him that his friends would make fun of him for liking it and they wouldnt be his friends. I felt really bad, because I know what its like to enjoy something that other people dont and to be made fun of for it. I figured I was already making it better, because he could talk to someone about it. I asked him if he really wanted to see it and he said yes, but was still hesistant. I wanted to explain to him that if his friends make fun of him for it then they arent true friends, but he is onle 7 and thats hard to swallow at that age. The older you get your friends begin to accept you for who you are and not the things you like or dislike, so I decided to go another step. I told him we could go and it would be our secret, he didnt have to tell anyone and if anyone did find out he could tell them that his dad is a huge fan and made him go. So off to the movies we are, pop corn, pop and a musical. I have to say there are a lot of movies that I would have never watched had I not had kids. Watching those movies now I think I enjoy them a lot more. #3 was like the rest, singing, dancing and hot chics.

As I said before my last DVD in the Sopranos series came a couple of days ago. I tried this weekend to put it off and not watch it, but I couldn't. I held the secret to life in a little blue envelop, there was no way I could put this off anymore.
I became part of the family late in the game, around season 4 to be exact. I don't think that should take away the fact that I am a super fan and that this is the best show ever. I loved Tony, the family and all the goons that followed him. I was there with him on the Stugots when big pussy got it and I held my breath when Pauly went for his possible ill fated boat ride. I watched the kids grow up, the marriage go up and down, Tony screw up over and over. I was mad, not angry, and saddened when Tony helped Christopher die. He loved that man, he also loved Adrian, but he put his love for the family first. I don't think Tony saw that deep. Bobby getting it at the hobby shop was hard, I dont think he ever carried a gun, he didnt use one untill a few shows ago. Poor Sil, Consigliary to the family, he went down with a fight, never gave up. I was there, in that restaraunt that night, nervous like everyone else. "Jesus Meadow, park the fucking car." I knew this was it, there would be no more and in the back of my head, the talks of this "ending". We sat there, for once seeing life with (through) Tony and then, in no measurable time, we saw it end. I could feel it in my stomach minutes before, its Michael Corleone all over again. Young Michael, never wanted to be involved, but took on one major task that pushed him to the top. I dont see myself as a movie expert, but I knew what had happened and I thought it was brilliant. There was no second guessing, no looking in horror, no seeing the wake it leaves, just nothing. Thats life, exactly how it will be, nothing no more. We dont get to see people cry, or try to avenge our deaths, we dont even get a final song. It couldnt have been done better, I sit here with a hole in my heart, a blank feeling, because just as in reality, there are no answers.
There is nothing I could ever do to bring back Tony.
This is a great article and explains the end to detail, I am sure everyone who has seen it understands it, but this is a good read if your interested or especiacly if you didnt understand the end.

I know I am a dork
Here is the write up from DT on Mt. Fuji
Mt. Fuji, Japan: Haunted Forest
A crowded, dark forest bordering Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is infamous throughout Japan as a popular spot for those taking their final journey. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within it. By May 2006, at least 16 new suicides had been found. No one knows how many bodies go undiscovered. Signs emblazoned with messages are nailed to trees throughout the forest.
No sounds can be heard other than those produced by the forest itself. Aokigahara is considered the most haunted location in all of Japan. Spiritualists say that the trees themselves are filled with a malevolent energy, accumulated from centuries of suicides.
The next episode is about a lake monster and some elves that ask road crews to move the roads, lol, it sounds funny I know. They are supposed to have awesome footage. Heres the trailer it didnt work good for me.
The Third Policeman was referenced in Lost, if anyone watches the show.

During the descent into Seattle I notice one of the coolest sights I have seen in a long time mountains, and the Mt. Rainier, the stratovolcano. I knew at some point in this trip I needed to see it, a better view at least. On the trip to the hotel, through the winding roads I saw bits and pieces of the monster coming through the trees, but never a good view.
I arrived at the Larkspur Landing suites about 3:30, ordered some food, talk to Damian and decided to set out around 4:30 to find my mountain amongst mountains.
I thought that my best bet would be to go up, up and up, until I could find a break and finally get a good picture of it. I did make it up some hills and did see city from a distance, then crossed Lake Washington, went downtown and back out again. It was a fun hour and a half in the car, but still no volcano.
As I was about to give up and well start to pay attention to the bitching GPS, I had a glimpse of hope and it came with a road sign.
I again became quickly frustrated to find myself in the same position, only glimpses. I traveled for another hour looking through tree lines, over houses and through people. I did find that what seemed to be prime mountain property was in fact the run down , bad part of town. Me, some Vietnamese and the local Spanish gang all roamed the streets, some selling themselves and some looking for a view.
Finally as the sun began to fall, I saw salvation. It came from a small apartment complex, not the nicest place in the world, i actually didn't fell comfortable getting out of the car, but I had to. There it was, in its greatness, sitting front in center before a picnic table and a stationary grill. So why is it this little rundown community has the best view of Rainier?
I have a lot more pictures, but right now I am going to sit down with a local best, Henry Weinhard's Blue Boar Ale and watch the new season opener of Dexter.

Seems as though, lately I have been giving my time to BBC. I religiously watch Top Gear, which is probably one of the best, funny, infromative luxory car shows out. I also enjoy Hell's Kitchen, their documentaries and a new show called Skins.
Lets step back a few years and let me admit to my following of Dawson's Creek. Some reason I fell for this show and stood by every wednesday to watch Pacey break up with Joey and Joey give Dawson the blue balls.
Now back to Skins, which is the British version of Dawsons Creek, but with
sex, drugs, drinking, nudity and swearing. I dont know if it's my attempt at
being a teenager again, but this show was really good. I would suggest it to everyone, the first season is only 10 episodes and very easy to watch. It is currently playing on BBC America, but I would download it to keep from seeing the edited version. BBC plays lots of stuff that would be censored here, but they do block out fuck, cunt and frontal nudity.
Lastly I would like to make a category for most inventive/creative/startling end to a show. I would like to put Skins in my top 3 for, to me, the most off the wall and inventive way to end a season. Mind you I have not finished Sopranos yet, so it may be there too and somehow I have managed not to hear the ending. So watch skins for its British humor, drug usage, nudity and Top 3 TV Shows ending of all times, according to myself.

Well the new camera was out in full force this weekend, taking pictures of Pumpklin Patch 2008. Again all the photos on the website are downsized to fit, so if you want a hi-res one just let me know. My only complaint so far for the camera is it not coming with a string for the lense cap and its too easy to take a shit load of pictures.
There is one in there that Damian calls his cool look, hes on a hill with his sister, I am sure you will notice it.
It looks like a scratch on the display in this photo, but its not, its brand new

ALICE goes online Wednesday, I cannot explain in detail what it is, but the two links below will. Basically they have finished the 17 mile long circular track underground that will move a particle at 99.9999% of the speed of light, the closest we have ever gotten. Not only are we going to do this, but they decided to move a particle clockwise and another counterclockwise, this is an attempt to creat black matter or tiny black holes. I guess this is supposed to allow us to see how things started 1 billionth of a second after the big bang. According to foxnews there have been death threats to the scientist, trying to get this not to happen.

I am scheduled and confirmed for Bellevue, Washington the last week in September. It looks like I am finally getting out of the Midwest, this will also be the farthest west I have ever traveled. Looks like I need to find a new zombie book.

I dont read, I will be the first to admit. Magazines and small articles are ok, but never a book, that is untill a friend turned me on to World War Z. It's about the zombie war, what better is there? This should happen, screw wars, plagues, meteors, religious apacolypse, I want zombies. It took me a couple of months to read it, primarily during my flights and I couldnt wait to get back to it. I suggest everyone read it and learn, because when the shit hits the fan, I dont need people coming ot my for advice.

-Have 15 Days of Instructing
-Work for a Partner
-Attend a COE
-Pass the teaching competence course
-Become certified in Part Design Specialist, Assembly Design Specialist and Generative Shape Design Specialist
-Choose one Expert field to become certified in, Part Design Expert, Assembly Design Expert or Generative Shape Design Expert
I will more than likely work towards the Part Design Expert track. I have already completed the Part Design Specialist test and I am now recognized by Dassault. Today I took the Assembly and Generative Design test and filed them both. They got me, the first 10 questions got me, I had no idea what they were talking about. So this week while I am in Wichita I will study some more and go back at it again. I was hoping to complete them before my financial review came up in September, but looks like I have to wait.
