It was all fairly climbable, as some parts were steep… but still allowed enough traction so it was more like an aggressive stair step.
We trekked in to Sedona, and headed to a spot near Cathedral Rock (to a spot where Shane and Stacey got married).
This video really got me thinking about mixtapes again. Hearing some of the songs in the video brought back a very strong sense of nostalgia. Even though they weren’t necessarily songs I actively liked or listened to, they very much brought back a sense of being a teenager again.
Kickended is a project that shows a random Kickstarter project that failed to raise any money. While there are many projects out there that fail to reach their funding goals, the ones listed on this site fail to even break the $1 mark.
At a distance, it looked like it might have been embroidery. But getting closer, it appeared to be a lot of markers. I was really quite baffled as to what this could be or mean.
In 2013, Silver and the website joined with ESPN. A few weeks ago they launched a new digital project entitled Signals, with the first episode being a look back a the rematch between Garry Kasparov and Deep Blue.
A few weeks ago, at the start of November, we had a really strong weather system roll in to Chicago. Lots of heavy winds, and it resulted in some really crazy waves along Lake Michigan (it even closed parts of the Drive).
Over the weekend, we were in Frankfort to visit with Bob during his recovery. Since we were headed there, Liz ended up bringing along some of her house plants, to keep in the basement (where Julie has many of her plants housed, during the winter).
After looking over old blog posts, it’s stunning to me that I first started coming here nearly 9 years ago. How has that much time passed by?
“[…] looking for good software to count on has been a losing battle. Written by people with either no time or no money, most software gets shipped the moment it works well enough to let someone go home and see their family. What we get is mostly terrible.”
For those of us who grew up with Choose Your Own Adventure books, this video game is a natural extension of choices and outcomes. Structured similarly to a comic book, panels are laid out with a fixed starting and end point.
Radio Alphabet: A Glossary of Radio Terms is a really neat (and old) collection of terms used in the radio industry. Having worked inside a radio station, but not directly on anything radio/sound related… this was a fun collection of terms to thumb through.
While it’s great to have places like A10 and The Promontory right around the corner from us, it’s also nice to have a regular bar we can pop in to. It’s more of a watering hole for college students and locals, and I guess… well, we’re officially locals now.
On Saturday, Liz and I met up with Julie and Bob at the University of Chicago, inside the Center for Care and Discovery building. Bob was scheduled to undergo a surgical procedure (something I really haven’t mentioned on here, before now). Without going into details, suffice it to say it was a serious procedure and we’ll leave it at that.
