It’s a Small (Beer-Making) World After All

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

This is only a slight transgression from all the DFF talk, because you’ll soon see that it’s related. You see, there’s a micro-micro brewey in Spring green, WI called Furthermore Beer.  Being from Spring Green originally, and being the go-to WI film guy, Nick had made a commercial for Furthermore…which he then showed at the […]

Well That Was Fun

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

I am back from Wisconsin, and what a time it was! The first rounds of pictures from the trip are here: http://picasaweb.google.com/cg.vicious/DriftlessTripRound1?authkey=Gv1sRgCNiRq-D7hcmWlAE&feat=directlink So how much do you all want to know?  I could babble about it for days on end, and likely will, but I don’t wish to bore y’alll to tears.

Three Cheers for Chigliak

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Well, this is it.  Tomorrow I’m off to the land of the Green Bay Packers, the birthplace of D&D, the home of Laverne & Shirley, that epic wellspring of quirky Americana….Wisconsin! Will be interesting to see how well-attended the Driftless Fest will be this first year.  I wasn’t expecting much turnout, but Darren is on […]

Drive-By Hotting: Road Trip Edition

Monday, October 18th, 2010

As you may or may not know, as of Thursday I am off to exotic southwest Wisconsin for the 1st-ever Driftless Film Festival, brought to you by my virtual pal Darren B., and his friends in the (surprisingly big) filmmaking community up there.  I will be meeting up with my Facebook fangirl friends Teresa and […]

Let’s Get Ginge-ified!

Hell to the Yes!  A happy weekend to you all, and don’t forget to watch Fox pwn the Dew Tour Skate Final-finals, Sunday on NBC from 4-6! Eff football!

Ed’s latest tail…

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Or rather, tale… So, we discovered Ed’s original owners!  Crazily enough, they’re a family who live not 100 feet away from our house…across the street and back a ways.  A single mom and her 3 kids.  I knew they’d had a cat before, as sometime last year I helped the mom round up a young […]

Three

Monday, October 11th, 2010

My Blog Guilt compelled me to at least try to do a Fall Movies to Look Forward To post.  I looked at the trailer sites.  I looked at Rotten Tomatoes twice.  I managed to scrounge up three. Three!! Fall used to be THE movie season for me!  I had to keep a scoresheet/schedule on my […]

So it begins

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

again… Hockey season is officially upon us!  I wish I could be excited, but so far all I feel is a big “meh.” Hence, the Crosby Goodness above…an effort to psych myself out. A few of my favorites have left the team.  The guys who remain (Sid and JStaal excepted, naturlich!) are guys who…frankly…I never […]

Randomossity Roundup

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Facebook is really killing this blog, I know.  As are work, my volunteer efforts, and my side projects.  I feel really guilty about it.  Not quite guilty enough to make a sustained effort to change things, but guilty enough to write an “I’m not dead” post. I’m not dead. And you really haven’t missed anything.  […]
