My usage of the word defies it’s true definition (just like any self-respecting child of the 90s).

Stuff and Nonsense…

Myspace.com Blogs – Craigslist Meets WallStreet – Tommy Gun MySpace Blog This is hilarious! William J. H. Boetcker – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should be doing for themselves. This quote is often misattributed to Lincoln courtesy of Reagan.

An intriguing correlation…

i was browsing e-mails and came across this bible verse: Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. Job 1:21 and it reminded me of this comic I came across at xkcd if you haven’t checked the site out before, it’s definitely worth it…it’s so geeky, fun, cool and humorous that I love it.

West Side Story Injuries (Detail)

Thursday night (3 performances left) during the opening number, I started a move, went up on my left toe and came down to a crouched position….when I did, something popped in my left knee….the choreography had me jumping back up a half second later (longest half second of my life), but the damage was done. I made it through the rest of the show alright and saw the chiropractor in the morning. Luckily I had just hyper-extended it, so the muscles were a little stiff, but prone to damage, so I did the next show with a knee brace. Then during that show, I bruised my right thumb during “Cool” (I have to support myself/push myself up with my hands during the show and I did it wrong). I saw the chiropractor again the morning after, but there was very little to do except ice it and use it as … Continue reading →

Adventures in Whittier

So after rehearsal last night I went to Memories and had a great time. They played a much more eclectic mix including Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” (which for all it’s objectionable content is a b!tchin’ good swing song) and Outkast’s Idlewild Blues which are probably my two favorite not-directly-swing swing dancing songs. After the place closed up (Closin’ Time and Get The F*ck Out were the last songs) I walked a girl out to her car, enjoying the echo of the empty Whittier streets. As I headed back through the back alleys of Whittier to my car, I noticed a group sitting in a circle around the back of a car where someone was strumming a guitar and singing. I went over and sat down. After a couple of songs, he started in on a Martin Sexton song (couldn’t tell you which one, except that it wasn’t Thirteen Step Boogie). Being … Continue reading →
