I’ve seen that movie

Isn’t this how the Terminator movies all start off?

Why you should never give the NRA your email address

The first time I joined the NRA I gave them my email address, thinking I would get valuable information. Instead, all I got was a bunch of “special offers,” notifications that my membership was “about to expire” (in only 11 months! Hurry!) and requests for donations. I ended up abandoning that address a few years [...]

Movies!

Bad news: Strep throat

Good news: 2 days of watching movies! Some short reviews

Colombiana: like any other film by Luc Besson. Think “The Professional” and “La Femme Nikita” with a latin flair.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes: pretty good. CGI was done very well and there was actually a pretty good [...]

Today I made it to the office in 26 minutes, and I stopped for breakfast on [...]

RAWR!

Himalayan cut like a lion

Best Baby Present Ever

Let me know how that works out for you

I know I’ve talked about this before, but since I can’t find a link I’ll mention it again. There is a neighborhood in Nashville called East Nashville, or just “East” to some people. East Nashville has been “up and coming” or “in the process of gentrification” for at least the last 15, probably 20 years. [...]

Eff GoDaddy

Apparently they think SOPA is just great.

I’ve never used GoDaddy since I always felt they were a bit sleazy.

I switched all my domains to NameCheap.com earlier this year and they are awesome. They are so awesome, in fact, that if you use coupon code SOPASucks they’ll transfer your domain for $6.99.

Go do [...]

This is my shocked face

Last year, Republican Speaker Beth Harwell told legislators not to bring up gun bills.

Looks like the leadership is doing it again this year.

Remind me why I spent so much effort getting a Republican majority in the TN House? I have forgotten.
