Inspire Me

August 30th, 2006 | Category: General

I’m tired of blogging. I usually post everywhere else but here. There is a lot happening and I just don’t have time to write about it. Or rather, I don’t make time. Yesterday I hung out with Matt and watched some episodes of “Father of the Pride” a very funny Dreamworks computer animated series that was cancelled on NBC. It would seem NBC has some stitch out of place in the fabric of their marketing and research department. What’s new? They cancelled Star Trek in 1968–they obviously know what wholesome entertainment is and don’t give a crap about the rest of their audience. Another gem they recently cancelled: Surface. A smart sci-fi series about a pack of sea monsters taking over the world. Sounds cheesy, yes… but it’s filled with mystery, intelligent dialogue, talented actors, comedy and drama. Oh well. Bah NBC. So back on track–Matt’s was fun. We had some wine and cheese and enjoyed his home theater.

Monday was my birthday. I’m nearly mid way through my thirties now. Probably shouldn’t look at it that way. Anyway, Heather bought me some nice balloons and a 20″ LCD Monitor for my birthday. She helped me organize my BBQ for that night and played host to many friends and family. I have a lot of leftover brats. I will probably bring them to work tomorrow.

We were supposed to go to the State Fair with our friends Eric and Curt yesterday but Heather was travelling between MN and Cedar Rapids, IA most of the day. So that didn’t work out. Heather really loves the Fair. I don’t… but I still hope we can make it for her sake.

Speaking of Sake. My mother-in-law bought me a bottle of Japanese rice wine aka Sake. I haven’t opened it yet. My sister-in-law bought me a really cool t-shirt with the Gorf ship on the front and the little aliens on the back. It says something like “The Game” on the front and the “The Players” on the back. It’s really quite funny when read correctly. By the way… if you type “Gorf T Shirt Players Game” into google Wil Wheaton dot net comes up.

Welp, that’s my stream-of-conciousness entry for today. Until we meet again–

Inspire me.



William Shatner Roast on Comedy Central

August 21st, 2006 | Category: General

Last night we spent an evening over at Matt Sparby’s [132” screen] Theater in anticipation of watching William Shatner get ‘roasted’ by his fellow actors. It started off brilliantly with a taped intro of Leonard Nimoy and Bill Shatner talking. Leonard kindly explains to Bill that he’s not going to roast him–because he loves him too much. There were a couple of funny digs but it left you with a good impression just before the roast began. Comedy Central also managed to wrangle the original Captain’s Chair from Star Trek to serve as a throne for their famous guest.

The roast was awful.
