One of my favorite things about cassettes is finding ones that are not available in other media formats or on streaming services. This tends to happen a lot with hits albums and original soundtracks (OST) and other sorts of compilations.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised — and yet I am — that no one got last week’s #MiniMusicMonday. Oh well.
I was considering an outfit to wear tomorrow for a presentation I’m making on Zoom to a client. I dug around in my closet to find a collared shirt. Of all the things that can happen to clothing — worn, stained, shrunken, outgrown, moth-ridden, outdated, etc. — the one thing I’d never considered was that my clothes would become covered in a thin layer of dust. Ah, pandemic life.
Happy eighth birthday, little dude. Your momma and I love you so much and are so proud of the kid you’re growing up to be.
Why do I like puzzles so much? I don’t like them too difficult. Not Enigma-level ciphers. Just newspaper-grade stuff like this...
As Nathan turns eight years old in two days, I thought it appropriate to TBT back a few years to one of the first birthdays where he truly enjoyed the celebration and made it all about himself. His third.
At the beginning of the month, in order to get back in track with reading and hit my monthly goal, I listed five books I planned to start and finish this month.
I typically work Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. This does not account for sometimes starting early or working late or having a late night or weekend deployment. Take out an hour for lunch and I work an eight-hour day.
As I expected, no one got the album title from last week's #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo. Like I said, it wasn't a studio album so no expectations.
Until Thursday, I had no idea that the NFL season was starting this weekend. Sad, isn't it? That's how removed I am from sports due to the pandemic. Not that I watched a lot of sports before that. It's called parenting. But, Katie and I would watch some Bears and Cubs and Blackhawks when we could. It just wasn't often.
And, for all intents and purposes, the project we started this past weekend is done!
I thought I had seen everything there was to see regarding footage of the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. A buddy sent me the link to this documentary made by two French filmmakers who were there.
10 years ago today, the City of Naperville was preparing to commemorate the 9th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. It was beautiful and horrible all at once.
Yesterday, Nathan found the 2006 live action Charlotte's Web on Netflix and turned it on. As I had never seen it before, I was watching over the top of my laptop. Decent enough film. Julia Roberts was a fantastic voice choice for Charlotte.
Last night, I couldn’t fall asleep. Nathan had moved into our room and I didn’t feel like waking him up to move him back. So I went to his room and fired up the TV and watched Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third in the slacker duo trilogy starring Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves.
My old high school friend Stacey nailed last week’s #MiniMusicMonday with Meat Puppets.
Yup. Another late night deployment.
I began reading Black Panther comics years ago as part of the Marvel Knights sub-branding. I loved Marvel Knights and read several titles. Even for heroes I’d never previously checked out.
Whatever could we be building??
I received a notification in the eBay app today that the service is celebrating its 25th anniversary right now. 25 years? That’s crazy!
I’m still kinda upset with myself for falling under my reading goal last month. I know I’m only one book shy but I’ll be damned if I let that be the first toppled domino.
It was... August.
