Poll of the Week

So, I started thinking about this poll last night while we were watching Brother From Another Planet (all hail Joe Morton!) and that got me thinking about other very good movies that not a lot of people have seen. However, the more I thought about it, the more I thought …

Video linkdump

Grab a drink! This is a long one! — For the most part I don’t like to recommend videos that are very long – I don’t like to sit and watch long boring shit that someone else has said is the best thing since sliced bread, why should you?! But …

Old Dog has an old

If you had asked me a little over two years ago, I would have said that Bridgett was fast on her way out. Tim and I talked it over and as having a “backup dog” was very important to me (much less sad than getting a “replacement dog”) we went …

Saturday at the Springs

The other week we had an opportunity to go spend the day at Wekiwa with Amy and Tim’s parents (thanks, Jenn, for taking on our pups for the day!). [pictobrowser type=”flickr” albumID=”72157625681580481″] This was pre-new-camera (even though I’m just now getting around to blogging it) so some of my photos …
