OKC 101

January 23rd, 2011

I attended my first-ever NBA basketball game. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I didn’t expect the Oklahoma City Thunder to take down the New York Knickerbockers (on the subject of knickers, it seemed that Ronny Turiaf, #14 for the Knicks, got his knickers in a twist by the end, but then again, he had just been served).

I got a few pictures, but the thunderbum shot wins the prize:

But the most amazing part was that this all happened in Oklahoma City. I grew up in OKC and sarcastically referred to it as Action City, but OKC is slowly growing into its own. With the MAPS endeavor, revitalization of Bricktown and its very-own NBA team, it’s become a legitimate place to live and do business. I feel that if OKC has a progressive (imagination-wise not necessarily politically) and budget-conscious mayor, she or he could make OKC into Action City one day. So, congratulations OKC and welcome to the game – now we’ll just have to do something about those backward politics… but that’s another story.

In conclusion, NY 98, OKC 101 – hey, it’s a definite start. And that final shot, glad I was there to witness it.

Freakout! The End Is Nigh

December 29th, 2010

I’m gearing up for the NYE Freakout #4 hosted by the Flaming Lips. It’ll be the fourth year in a row for me. I didn’t post a picture from last year’s freakout, but here’s one from the free press summer fest last summer (2010):

Rickrolled?

July 29th, 2009

OK – someone sent me this link, and I’m having a hard time figuring out if this qualifies as me being rickrolled… I’ll have to ponder it.

The Governator. Can you digg it?

May 31st, 2009

A few days old (translation: old news), but this is a great interview with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. I don’t agree with everything the governor believes in, but he never ceases to impress me. And I will never understand why he’s considered a Republican.

I don't know German, but Rhabarberbarbara

May 31st, 2009

I have no idea what in hell this is or what it’s saying, but I found it oddly amusing. I’m sure if I understood what was going on, I’d find it brilliant, but I’m not smart enough for any of that. Still – I hope you enjoy and I’d like to thank brennarella for pointing me to it.

enjoy and take care always

Update from the field

May 23rd, 2009

It’s stopped raining for now, but I’m sure that means it will be way too humid to breathe. I guess that’s the way holiday weekends go sometimes. Oh yeah – and I might have to work tomorrow.

Back to Old Design

May 23rd, 2009

Yeah – that didn’t last too long. Maybe I should just start a new blog and make my own theme. We’ll see…

Blahg Design Update

May 14th, 2009

I decided to update the look of the the other day ago… blahg experiment web page site thing. I’m not sure if i’m happy yet, but i’ll continue to tweak on this wordpress theme until i’ve ruined it and probably go back to the deafult theme i started with, but until then, there’s a new design for the spot.

Flock

May 10th, 2009

So I’ve been playing around with a new browser – Flock… It’s supposed to be geared to social media – and it is. I still don’t know a whole lot about it, but I’m going to give it a shot for a while – I’m even posting this from the built in blog editor… we’ll see how it goes.
