What do you think?
I’ve had the chance to visit this treasure trove of books…
If you have never been to Portland but have wanted to go…put Powell’s Bookstore on your list of places to visit. SUCH a cool bookstore.
This was not an easy video to make…but it was important.
My father-in-law passed away a little over a year ago and I avoided making this video for quite a while.
Emotional stuff like this is NOT my strong suit…but this was a way for me to process what I am going through. I also hope that it’s an appropriate way for me to say thank you to my wife’s father.
One of the things I have found about making vlogs is that, in some odd way, talking to the camera helps me process. I tend to internalize my emotions…which can work against me…but I have found that if I talk about them that it helps immensely.
Even if I’m just talking to a camera.
This video is a celebration of life in tribute to Larry Mitchell Sr.

California accents, driving the 101, and maps from the sky…
Californians dropped the “cot” vowel sound, pronouncing it like “caught” instead. So something had to fill that space. “The California Shift is this kind of combined change in the pronunciation of short vowels,” says Kennedy. The easiest way to think about it? Look at the words kit, dress, and trap. In the California Shift, “kit” becomes “ket”, “dress” becomes “drass”, and “trap” becomes “trop”.
I actually wanted to study linguistics before I went to college. Didn’t have the chance, but I still find articles like this fascinating.
A driving trip is one of the best options during a pandemic. California’s 101 coastal route has a diversity fo different landscapes. In the years I have lived here I have visited most of them many times.
In Minnesota, there’s a forest shaped like Minnesota. You wouldn’t know it when you’re near it, or even in it; you can only see it when you’re flying above it.
One of those…HUH….things.
Ten years on from the release of Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Andrew Saladino of The Royal Ocean Film Society smartly traces the key influences of the film, rejecting the simplistic notion that Inception is just a rip-off of Paprika or The Matrix.
I love Christopher Nolan movies…especially Inception.

You really should own one…
I’ve owned this hammock for years now, and while I don’t use it as much as I’d like….I ALWAYS love it when I get it set up.
Life moves pretty fast…
This new 20ft version with a bit of a lift calls to me.
