38

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 04:49:30 +0000

I’m feeling more reflective on this birthday than I normally do. There are reasons for that — the last year or so has been rough. There were some wonderful moments and events to be sure. My daughter was born 8 months ago. My son has blossomed into a clever kid with a ridiculous sense of […]



A Girl

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 06:39:10 +0000

I haven’t posted here in a very long time. In a matter of days I’m going to be a father again. We’re going to have a baby girl. She’s going to shape and change my life, Kelly’s life and Julian’s life. I couldn’t be more proud of my wife. It’s been a long and difficult […]



Hypocrisy and Argument

Thu, 23 May 2013 17:53:30 +0000

I’m often more interested in how we argue than what we argue about. By “interested”, I mean “endlessly frustrated”. Here’s a big gripe of mine: People don’t seem to understand that when arguing with someone, the hypocrisy (perceived or actual) of an opponent’s argument does not justify their own. Let’s say that you are staunchly […]



Externalizing Problems

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 15:29:05 +0000

Apparently mass shooters tend to externalize their problems. Most people who externalize their problems don’t become mass shooters, of course. People with that trait, however, are very frustrating people. I know I can be frustrating, as I do the opposite. I tend to blame myself for anything bad that happens to me, even when it’s […]



Conversation

Mon, 04 Jun 2012 18:23:17 +0000

What is the point of conversation and argument? I mean “argument” somewhat in the spirit of the logical and philosophical sense of the word, summarized on wikipedia as: In philosophy and logic, an argument is an attempt to persuade someone of something, by giving reasons or evidence for accepting a particular conclusion. The general structure […]



This Blog’s “Design”

Thu, 31 May 2012 21:15:49 +0000

I really, really dislike this blog’s appearance. I hate the layout, the fonts, the titles, everything. There are a few things standing in the way of me changing it: Not worth the trouble: almost no one reads it, and there isn’t much reason for anyone other than some friends and family to read it. There […]



Video Game Stack of Shame: Update

Mon, 07 May 2012 16:25:14 +0000

It’s been over a year since I posted my video game stack of shame. I haven’t done so well. I beat some games that weren’t on that list (Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box), but of the games that were, I can cross out “New Super Mario Brothers”. That’s it. That said, I made a […]



Expectations

Wed, 21 Mar 2012 18:51:23 +0000

My four month-old son seems opinionated. We’ve noticed little things. He’s starting to show preferences and annoyances. But I’m trying to be careful. While I don’t exactly believe in Locke’s tabula rasa, I do think that Julian has a while to go until his personality develops to the point where it really starts to show. […]



How Steve Jobs Saved My Marriage

Sat, 08 Oct 2011 21:46:15 +0000

Ok, so the title is hyperbolic. My wife and I have been married about 2.5 years, we’ve got a boy on the way and we’re doing great. But Apple technology did help smooth over an argument once. I think it was the Spring or Summer of last year. We were arguing about something; I don’t […]



iTape

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 05:27:08 +0000

On the subject of Apple and Steve Jobs… We did several skits related to Apple: BananaTech iTape iMac Commercial More iMac Commercials The original script for iTape was a bit different. I had written it as an anti-DRM thing. I still like the final result better (Cunties! Cool!), but here’s the original, for posterity: Closeup […]
