Once upon a time my life was my own

Hi there fellow blogger, or should I say fellow slacking bloggers.  Scope has declared that today be the day we try and jumpstart some of these old electronic bits and pieces and see if we cant all reconnect.  And who am I to deny Scope anything?  Just remember, red is positive and black is negative. As with many of you, the siren song of Facebook with its easy likes and links has sucked a lot of my time away from blogging.  It is easy to quickly share a quick update or a story, but I do sometimes miss the long narrative of blogging. But the majority of my time lately seems to be divided between taking care of my son Skyler, who I kind of started this whole thing for, and the extra stress of a job that seems to want to get rid of me.  Perhaps I can do a better job of writing down my thoughts in the next post, but for right now I am exhausted, can't see straight, and just wanted to say hi to old friends and new. Big bloggy hugs and kisses to you all. Skydad (aka Chris)

The Onion Looks Back At 'The Shining'

Just to keep this space alive...

Sorry that I haven't been out here much.  Life keeps getting in the way.  Enjoy these gifs while I try and get my mojo back.

Illegal Aliens

My friend Marny shared this with me as a comment to a Facebook post.  I thought it was pretty damn great!

Worn Out

Warning: Lot's of whining follows... Some folks may remember me telling you about my problems with concentration and focus following the Layoffs at my company.  Well, they have announced another round of layoffs coming in October.  This will be huge, 7% of the company to the tune of around 4000 people!  I have serious doubts to being able to survive this. After the last round of layoffs hit, I found myself kind of rocked to the core.  Since then, I haven't been able to sleep well, with lot's of anxiety and worry.  I wind up waking up around 3-4 each morning and toss and turn until I wind up having to get up and throw up.  On the plus side, I am down 15 pounds now!  I should go on TV and have my own infomercial about weight loss through stress... I went to a couple of different doctors, getting a neuro workup, some heavy duty testing, and it appears to be one of two things.  Mild Cognitive Impairment or Depression brought on by stress. So I am going to get referred

True Colors A Cappella

The A Cappella geek in me loves this, even though it can be debated this isn't so much a cappella as choral performance. In any case, this group is very tight, which is hard with so many voices.  I used to be in a couple of groups, one large like this, and another smaller.  It was a wonderful experience! Enjoy

Night Landing

When I was in the Navy, I knew quite a few pilots and they all had the same story.  Night landings on the carrier were brutal.  As a matter of fact, during Viet Nam, a test was run with several pilots wired up to monitor their vitals during missions.  The results were interesting to say the least.  These guys were more calm while they were trying to out maneuver soviet anti-air missiles tracking them than they were with just getting their bird back on the deck.

It's Hell To Get Old!

Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man Walking with his legs spread apart. He was stiff-legged and walking slowly. One student said to his friend: "I'm sure that poor old man has Peltry Syndrome. Those people walk just like that." The other student says: "No, I don't think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome. He walks slowly and his legs are apart, just as we learned in class." Since they couldn't agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached him And one of the students said to him, "We're medical students and couldn't help But notice the way you walk, but we couldn't agree on the syndrome you might have. Could you tell us what it is?" The old man said, "I'll tell you, but first you tell me what you two fine medical students think." The first student said, "I think it's Peltry Syndrome."                   The old man said

Love letter to life in Denver

This is directly from an article in KUNC, all props to them for this excellent work! Quoting the full article: A highlight reel of life in Denver has been making the viral rounds online. “Breathless” by Thaddeus Anderson and Woody Roseland was originally produced for the 2013 edition of TEDxMileHigh in Denver. Anderson and Roseland, co-founders of  Air Ball Creative , designed the short film to get the audience hyped about Denver. A way to translate the essence of the Mile High City and its surroundings visually. If you’ve spent any time in Denver, or have lived in the city all your life, it could make you pretty emotional. “More and more people are proud of living in Denver. It’s no longer a stop on your way to California, but people want to live here,” said Woody Roseland. As Denver has continued to grow and gain prominence on the world stage, Roseland says it’s starting to change its image. “We didn’t want to do a tourism video for peopl

Fantastic commercial

Don't mess with Texas? Don't fuck with New York!

I just love Lewis Black!

Did he really go there?

What are the odds that he really doesn't know what bukkake is? His grandson probably got that for him and just laughs and laughs thinking about gramps wearing it in public!

Friday Funny

We were dressed, and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet, and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house. As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scoots back into the house. We didn't want the cat shut in the house. Because she always tries to eat the bird. My wife goes on out to the taxi, while I went back inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, my wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon, 'He's just going upstairs to say Goodbye to my mother.' A few minutes later, I get into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' I said, as we drove away. 'That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to

Let's clean out the picture folder

Here is a mess (Swarm? Covey? Murder?) of fun stuff I have picked up along the way that I didn't find a use for, but know that some of you just might appreciate them!

The final Bad Tat Tuesday!

Loyal readers, I think this whole theme has just about run its course now.  (several of you mumble something about this whole blog has run its course, and I agree) So today I will clean out the bad tat folder and that will be that.  For the record, as I have told several people I am not anti-tat, I actually really think that most are very cool.  It is just the bad work or the weird themed ones that I find peculiar. And without further ado, here we go... Wow, bad work and the kinda 3-D look? You only jizz 5 times? That is actually pretty cool! That is actually not cool.  That is horrific. Nice use of the belly button. One word - Unemployable. These *are* the droids I am looking for! Amazing work, but scary. Worst ever. This is way cool! Another scary and WTF one. I am as big a Trek fan as there is, but no way. Even burly guys can appreciate a tramp stamp...
