everybody changes with a chance

I don’t think I’ve mentioned that I might accidentally watch One Tree Hill.  It’s not because it’s great tv but because it always has good music.  It’s rare enough that a song comes around I really love, and yet One Tree Hill manages to find one about once a month. So, let’s have a little […]

Good Friday

I appreciate when Good Friday is overcast. It seems appropriate. I know, this isn’t the actual day that Jesus died. But I suspect the Earth knows the right day; that it bears a scar the way you can see a storm in the rings of a tree, even if humanity has lost track. So today, […]

Purchasing Identity

Purchasing Identity

I read an article in Details 2 years ago (Dec 2006) and I thought it was interesting at the time; a thought provoking reflection of an influential though often overlooked generation. But rather than simply reposting it (since I can’t find it on Details which is usually really good about posting their articles) I’ve taken […]

Memorial Day 2008

A few moments ago, I placed a wreath upon the tomb of three brave American[s] who gave their lives in service to our nation. The names of these honored are known only to the Creator who delivered them home from the anguish of war — but their valor is known to us all. It’s the […]

finding hope in drama

We are all, everyone one of us making history now. The time for sitting on the fence is over. The time for greatness is now. Each of you has a role to play, your only choice is whether you accept it or have it thrust upon you… I know it’s tempting to think that we […]

proper English

So the Olympic Committee is banning improper English on signs for when all the Olympians and tourists show up. Prime example: “Shangri-La is in you mind, but your Buffalo is not.” I need to find ways to work that into casual conversation.

living out loud

Some days you’re driving and someone in a car near you is smoking and it wafts into your car and every now and then, when the right melancholy song is on the radio, it smells good. Maybe you have to have smoked once or twice for that to be the case. To have felt it […]

less than glamorous

So, the WB aired it’s final episodes last night.  Before I get to what I thought let me explain why it sort of matters. I was watching Buffy when the WB as an entity came into being for me.  I was in college taking some sort of marketing/communication courses that tie in to this story.  I […]
