Back at the dock, I put the boat on the trailer. I was halfway up the ramp, wondering why everyone was screaming at me before I realized I...

    What music gives you the goose?

    I was listening to a fav podcast, talking about a study looking at physiological effects of music. Resarch method was to have participants choose a non-vocal piece of music that "sent shivers up their spine" when they listened to it. The researchers placed the participants in an MRI, played the...

    Hunter S Thompson

    Oh man I love HST! What an amazing, freaky genius. There is SO much great wordsmithing, but I think my favourite quote is from Fear and Loathing: "... There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - that...

    New M83 Album!

    No tambourines or gnarly guitar riffs, so some of you old guys might not like it. Regardless, it is a pretty great piece of album. First single:

    for BC, I guess, where is this? Kinda looks like Cooking Lake, but I don't think we have snow yet. Down by Brooks, Medicine Hat maybe?

    Great doc! I am too young (and not a big F1 fan) so didn't really see him race, but after watching, he was obviously one of the best ever. What a tragedy, though almost inevitable. If you dig the racing, check out 'Racing Dreams'. I watched this on Sunday; its a great doc following 3 cart...

    I'm going to Turks n' Caicos...

    I'm going to drag some of the family to Turks and Caicos later this year. My wife and I spent a week at Northwest Point Resort (Provo) a few years ago and loved it. Is it worth checking out some of the other islands, or is Provo where its at? We're active people, looking for interesting stuff to...
