It’s Alive!

New servers, new layout. As a wise man once said, “Enough is enough and it’s time for a change.”

I’d like to that Nate from for migrating all of my sites to one of his brand new servers.

As far as the site itself, I have a plan. I’ve said this before, but this seems like a more sound plan. Then again, I’ve sait that before as well. My plan is to make the site more entertainment-centric. I’ll still attempt to add new short stories or fiction to the site, but I’m going to put my college degree to “good” use by commenting on television and film.

New content will be coming as soon as I tweak the site a bit more.

Juvenile Justice: Part 3

Hey, I actually got this post up on time! I hope you’re enjoying the story, we’re nearing the conclusion… Kinda…

I hate this undercover shit. It’s degrading. Susan, dad, and I all dolled up like we’re a normal American family. Albeit a normal American family in the middle of Chinatown looking for custom-made clothes. Totally inconspicuous.

Is Susan even old enough to have a kid my age?

The facade of Liu’s Super Lucky Clothe Place was pretty dingy. The red plexiglass letters coated in a thick film of city grime. There was a feng shui lucky cat in the window, faded gold paint flaking off of the porcelain. Walking through the door incense smoke slapped us in the face. As if the previous hints hadn’t given it away, a zither twanged away at a pentatonic scale over the stereo speakers to let us know that yes, we were really in Chinatown. Continue Reading →

HD Video Test

Spent pretty much all day in Photoshop and Final Cut to get this video together. Watch it and let me know what you think. Be sure to select 720p from the drop-down box to watch it in full quality.

Summer 2010 Updates

Alright, I’ve been pretty crappy at updating recently. But I was a little busy passing my last undergraduate semester and actually walking the aisle to accept my diploma. I’m sure that qualifies for a pass.

Cosmetically the site will change again, as it usually does around this time of year. I’ve made it more streamlined and less busy, I like it.

Content-wise I’m going to spend a little more time on the words, pictures, video, and audio I’m adding to the site. I realize that sometimes a blog should have short, somewhat incomprehensible posts. But most of the time the content should be rich and coherent. That’s a lofty goal, but one I’ll strive for in the future.

More content changes will follow in the coming weeks and months. I’ll be rebooting my podcast, albeit with a format change. What format will be a mystery to all of us until I actually sit down to record. I’ll be debuting a few new video segments, and actually make use of my (admittedly) terrible YouTube channel.

The last addition to the content of this site will be something I’ve always felt a little leery about releasing. I’m going to start publishing my short stories on this site. Eventually I’d like to format them into a book and sell them for a reasonable price, but I’ll take the initial jump of online publishing before transitioning to print.

I’m leery of publishing my short stories because I’m usually not confident of my writing. The funny thing is I’ve never encountered anyone who has hated my writing, so it has to be somewhere above crappy. I guess we’ll see what the response to my short stories will be.

All of these changes are really exciting, and I’m hoping that I can stick with the regular updates. If I do this will be a great experience for all involved.

Google Voice

Good news, everyone! The other day I was finally sent an invite for Google Voice. I’ve added a widget to the right sidebar that will allow you to leave a voicemail for me. I believe this is how it works: you click the widget and give it your number, then Google calls you and connects you directly to the voicemail box. You can leave questions, comments, whatever.

For those of you that haven’t tried it yet, Google Voice is similar to Grand Central. You are assigned a phone number that can ring several of your phones (home, business, mobile) at once. Voice and text messages are stored in a GMail-like interface, it’s pretty sweet. I look forward to hearing from you guys.
