Posted by: Dave In: Gadgets|Productivity|Travel|Web

I’ve been using Portable Apps on my thumb drive for 6-8 months now and I thought I’d let everyone know just how cool it is. If you’re not familiar with USB flash drives (nicknamed “thumb drives” – because they are about the size of your thumb) they are small devices that you plug into the […]

Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Posted by: Dave In: Family|Vacation

After a white-knuckled flight out of Charlotte, NC yesterday in a 30 passenger prop plane in a driving rain storm we landed in Huntington, WV.  I only felt like vomiting three times during this hour long flight, but I consider my self lucky that I didn’t. The hillbillies on board looked pretty green around the […]

If I wrote a book about OJ Simpson

Posted by: Dave In: Books|Current Affairs

Call him Ishmael

Posted by: Dave In: Books

Matthew Baldwin, a clever blogger from Seattle, Washington, is reading Moby Dick and writing about his experience on his blog.  He’s a pretty funny guy. Moby Dick happens to be one of my favorite American novels.   I sort of hope Matthew likes it when he’s done. -Dave

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
