In My Own Words:
I was born and raised in Alaska, but moved to Arizona to pursue a career in software engineering.

I'm known to be quite strange (at least that's what others tell me ... I personally don't think I'm all that odd). I have numerous hobbies, ranging from wine making to painting and sculpting to role-play and computer games to camping and hiking and finally to gardenning.

One day, I'd like to mo… Read more

The Compleat Turkey by Sandra Boynton
The Compleat Turkey by Sandra Boynton
This book originally came out during the running craze of the late 70's. The title was intended as a parody of the book "The Complete Runner," which was popular at the time. Like Dilbert, it's a light hearted send up of all those mentally challenged folks we meet day to day, who clutter up our lives. It's full of short anecdotes and observations we can all relate to.

All in all, it's a very short, light hearted and enjoyable read. If you can find it, you won't be disappointed.
This is without doubt the best music CD I have listenned to in a long time. So you understand what that entails, I'm not a goth, but I am 37 years old.
I've been waiting a long time for music that is this technically excellent. I fall short of calling it perfect, but only because I don't believe in perfection. The musical riffs are complex and delicious. The harmonics, the composition, and Amy Lee's soaring vocals ... everything is just about as flawless as humanly possible. There's not one bad track on the entire CD, and that's real rare to find these days.
Some have compared Evanescence to Linkin Park, but there is no real comparison. They are of similar genres, but Linkin… Read more
Anything Anytime Anywhere (Singles 1979-2002) ~ Bruce Cockburn
The first thing I should say is that Bruce Cockburn is an old school raging communist. He's a voice from my highschool days, back before I realized that the "social reformers" I'd believed in where full of themselves (as well as other noxious materials) - a time before I grew up and faced the world as it is, not as I'd like it to be.
Even so, Bruce Cockburn's music has a quality to it that is wonderful. I can't quite explain it. You really need to hear it for yourself. This quality still endears me to his music, allowing me to overlook his anachronistic political naivete'.
But judge for yourself. Listen to the snippets given above and then decide. If you can… Read more
