In case you want to see the magic of what good video editing can do, check out this trailer for how The Shining could have been sold… Kinda funny! 🙂

Piece of Shit

Thursday, September 29th, 2005 | Gay Stuff | 1 Comment

Not that I’m surprised, but I’m still pissed… Turns out that weasel of a Governor of ours has vetoed the gay marriage bill placed on his desk. It turns out basic civil rights aren’t a priority in our state any more than they are in our federal government… *sigh*… Perhaps its time to move to Germany after all…

Not that he had much of a chance anyway – but he sure ain’t getting a vote from me come election time (or a movie ticket dollar when they kick his sorry ass out of Sacramento)…

Cat’s in the Cradle

Thursday, September 29th, 2005 | Pete Stuff | 1 Comment

On the way into work I was listening to my favorite CD full of songs I liked from when I was a kid. Songs like ‘House at Pooh Corner‘ by Kenny Logins, ‘Cat’s in the Cradle‘ by Harry Chapin, and a bunch of others of that ilk. I just love those songs – they’re great to sing along with and have so many memories for me.

Cat’s in the Cradle in particular is one of those ones that has such strong happy memories for me from my childhood and lots of people don’t get it. Kevin cringes every time he hears it cuz it strikes him as such a sad song about a neglectful father and son who just can’t seem to make any time for each other… Maybe i’m just a wierdo but I just don’t read it that way. I just see it as a song about a father and son that are connected from birth until death and, despite everything that goes on throughout life they still love each other and are connected no matter how busy they get or whats going on and get a lot out of every chance they have to talk…

Wow… How was that for sappy… Anyway… just had to share! :)… Read blelow

A good weekend

Monday, September 26th, 2005 | Pete Stuff | 1 Comment

So the weekend turned out to be a really nice one… Friday night I went out with Brian to go see Corpse Bride (good movie if you’re into Tim Burton movies – but if you’re not ya might not like it)… When I got home after that Kevin was at home with a buddy of his from School (Skip) and they dragged me out to the Power House (which was CRAZY busy cuz of Folsom weekend)…

Saturday, as I mentioned before, I spent the day building a jungle gym with Matt which was all sorts of fun (I”m being serious – doesn’t sound fun I suppose but I enjoyed it)… Kevin ended up going to the San Francisco Love Parade but I decided to bail – didn’t think I could take two days of street fairs and I really wanted to hit folsom… After our day of construction I hung out with M&B and ate pizza and watched ‘The Truth about Cats and Dogs‘ after which Matt and I ended up grabbing our friend Jamie and going out…

Sunday was Folsom Street Fair and, as usual, I had a great time… I went down there about 2:30 with Jamie and stayed until they kicked us out at 6 at which point Jamie and I went to the Endup for a little while… Was a lot of fun – lots of folks out and AMAZING weather… Didn’t take any pictures this year though MAN I wish I had! :):) :P…Kevin bailed – doesn’t really like it and he fried himself at the love parade and going out saturday.

Anyway.. that was the weekend.. just had to share! 🙂

Now back to work

My Weekend of Construction

My Weekend of Construction

Originally uploaded by SwimFinsSF.

Just signed up for ‘flickr’ since that seems to be all the rage these days… One of the things it seems to be able to do is post to my blog – not sure what that’ll look like so i’m givin it a go..

As to what this is – This is the result of my construction project with Matt on Saturday… I showed up at noon on Saturday to help him build a playset for Audrey.. What I showed up to find was a pile of lumber and plastic and a big bag of screws and bolts … nothing that even slightly resembled a jungle gym… But after 5 hours and a trip to the hardware store this is what we were left with.. Very cool… You can check out Matt’s blog for more details! 🙂
