How to break down a door


Useful information... yet, I doubt I have the leg strength to do this.

Traces of Jean-Luc Godard...

Wes Anderson (one of my favorite directors) and Roman Coppola directed these new commercials for Prada Candy perfume. This are simply beautiful... it pays hommage to another one of my favorite directors Jean-Luc Godard and the whole French New Wave movement from the 1950s and 60s.

Let your children get bored...

"When children have nothing to do now, they immediately switch on the TV, the computer, the phone or some kind of screen. The time they spend on these things has increased.

But children need to have stand-and-stare time, time imagining and pursuing their own thinking processes or assimilating their experiences through play or just observing the world around them."

- Dr. Teresa Belton

I totally agree with this. I can remember being "bored" as a kid and when that happened I did crazy things around my house, like turned my bed into a fort, or tried to find new hiding places to jump out and scare my parents, or stared out the window and day dreamed about all the cool things I could do if my life wasn't so boring... but the key thing is, during those "bored" times my imagination was allowed to roam free... and that is when the magic happens folks.

Book Review: Candide by Voltaire


Candide by Voltaire
Rating: 5/5

Candide, The Optimist is a terribly sad yet funny tale of the misery of life. I suspect Voltaire had fun writing this, coming up with the most horrible situations and amazing tales which span numerous continents and interacting with various historical figures. It is the story of Candide, an innocent young man, who believes his schooling, that "all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds." With this philosophy, Candide is tested to see if this theory is true.

I highly recommend this novel, it's a rather quick read (possibly completed in one long sitting) and is a true page turner, you will keep asking yourself while reading, what next catastrophe could possibly happen to these people!?

Why is it a bad thing to lose touch with reality?

Why is it a bad thing to lose touch with reality? Have you seen reality lately? It's terrible.

I ask myself this all the time.

I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!


I have to admit, I was always a fan of the The Wicked Witch of the West.

I love Tyrion.
I like Jamie.
I hate Cersei.

Pap Tywin isn't shown in the photo, but that dude can totally disappear, hate him.

I highly recommend you read the A Song of Fire and Ice series, the books are soooo good (the audio books are especially great for books 1 -3).

We're all insignificant...

Whenever I see photos of the earth from the International Space Station I immediately start to feel insignificant. I mean, just look:

The earth is magnificent and large. Then think of it in the larger content of the solar system! And we sit around and complain about our slow internet or how lonely we are. Dude, we don't even matter in the grand scheme of things...

Book Review: Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov


Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov
Rating: 4/5

** spoiler alert ** 

Good old Wikipedia describes a "superfluous man" as "an individual, perhaps talented and capable, who does not fit into social norms." Well that is a good description of our main character Ilya Oblomov, in the novel Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov. He is a man who spends his days laying in bed or on the couch day dreaming, refusing to "live" his life. Yup, that's it... and he's my hero (only half joking).

Oblomov is a nobleman who has arrested development. He is lazy, slothful, and a dreamer, but the real question is why does Oblomov behave in this way? The novel describes his childhood, which clearly, any reader can see is the root of his trouble. Now Oblomov does have a bout of energy when he finds love, but his nature, his refusal to make decisions doesn't allow this love to fully bloom.

In the end, it is a sad story of a man whose "intellect was equal to that of his fellows, his soul was as clear and bright as glass, his disposition was kindly, and he was a gentlemen to the core. Yet he – he fell. And what was the cause of his fall? The disease of Oblomovka."

Walking around Salt Lake City


I spent a couple days in Salt Lake City... a perfectly nice city. The trams running through the middle of the road reminds me of Europe. I didn't have much time to do sight-seeing but it was pretty cool that the city was surrounded by snow topped mountains.

Book Review: Chocky by John Wyndham


Chocky by John Wyndham
Rating: 3/5

Imagine your 12 year old son suddenly develops an imaginary friend. Then imagine this imaginary friend starts to make your son view the world in a "different" way. For instance this imaginary friend, named Chocky, explains that our system of numbers is silly, because "... to bother with ten different figures just because you've ten fingers, when all you really need is two fingers..." (explaining binary code). Is Chocky simply an imaginary friend or something more?

A very quick and interesting read.

learning to draw...


Bored on a Saturday night, I decided to learn how to draw thanks to the all knowing internets. I think I did pretty good for my first try.

Walking back from lunch I see these boys...


Coming back from lunch I see this group of boys standing across the street from the all girls' catholic school. After I read their sign I said, "I must take a photo and tweet this" and they happily agreed. If a guy went to all this effort to invite me to prom while I was in high school, I'd probably be married to him until this day (sigh). I hope she said yes!
