A Great DIY iPod Stand

This is apparently old news but I was just looking for some sort of iPod stand solution and my searches came across this article posted by Piers on his blog back in March 29, 2005. Piers details how with some cardboard, scissors, and a bit of tape you can make your own fashionable iPod stand. […]

Released JDMA Episode 5

I was up late tonight trying to put together the next episode of JD’s Musical Alchemy. It has been difficult trying to find a time to do the podcast when it wasn’t boiling outside (and inside). Apparently 2am with all the fans blowing is the best time at the moment. You can find the show […]

Adam Sandler in “Click”

When going into a comedy like this my expectations change from what I would expect from an action or drama film. You just can’t be fair to the film if you use the same ruler you use to measure an action film. To that end, I used my comedy ruler when I watched this film. […]

Podcast Player Added to Site

As you may or may not know I have a podcast running on another site called JD’s Musical Alchemy. This podcast is focused on finding and reviewing high quality moving music from all genres by independent artists or labels. Of course this is subjective to a certain degree but I have fairly eclectic tastes. So […]

Released JDMA Episode 4

I released episode 4 of my musical review podcast yesterday. This was the first podcast I did since acquiring permission with IODA Promonet and Garageband.Com. Though I was very tired when I recorded it, which resulted in a bunch of mispronunciations, I was still happy with how it came out. If your interested in hearing […]

Superman Returns

Superman really has returned in “Superman Returns”. I had a bunch of concerns going into this film based on the hype leading up to its release. It is always a brave move when you make a movie of something that has become such a staple in society. Last Saturday I got to see for myself. […]

Garageband and IODA Promonet Music Sources

This was posted on my podshow site JD’s Musical Alchemy. I’m quite excited about the prospect so I thought I’d mention it here too. In addition to bringing you great music from the Podsafe Music Network we just got approval to start playing music from IODA Promonet as well as Garageband. This is going to […]

4th of July 2006

The 4th turned out to be a pretty nice day. We had Quinn’s cousin (Andrew) as well as Lori’s parents (Dean and Mavis) over. Apparently they spent the day at the park. From talking to them it sounds like they had fun. When I got home we went to the grocery store and picked up […]

Me and the Dog

My sister recently sent me this picture which I added to the photo gallery. Sure brings back some memories. I find it hard to believe I was ever that young.

Saw "Cars" at the drive-in

We went to see Cars this weekend at the 99W drive-in. It was a beautiful evening so we pulled out the chairs and sat outside to watch it. To be honest I could not have been more impressed with this movie. This is far and away one of their best movies yet in my opinion. […]
