But we stopped accepting Faxes in 2005
IRON MAN 3 was huge in the global market this weekend.. but don't forget, some countries saw a different version than what the United States will see in a week (and lots of Chinese bloggers were angry at the cut they saw..)

Money talks. Censorship stalks..

WJZ: "The video shows a man on the ground and at least four others punching and kicking him repeatedly. One woman even hits him with a hammer-like object. It happened early Saturday morning at the Windor Inn– a popular Baltimore County restaurant and nightclub."

Melancholy Sunday to all

Sunday was never my favorite day of the week.. as a matter of fact, there have been times I absolutely hated it. There is something magically lonely about the thoughts of a Sunday morning--perhaps that is best exemplified by Kris Kristofferson's SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN (even more so when performed by the late Johnny Cash) ..
So on a day when you wake up, feeling melancholy and a little out of sorts, the best thing to do may be to put on Cash's version of the song, all about waking up Sunday morning, walking through a neighborhood resounding with church bells and being filled with an aroma of frying chicken.. or you can listen to Anna Kendrick. Thanks to my wife Tara this morning, it was the "CUPS" that suddenly got stuck in my head..
Picture Anytown, USA, a diner in the middle of no where, filled with a singing staff and dancing crowd. It sounds too good to be true because it is too good to be true.. but it's a creative video and a song that will become a part  …

Watching my son grow

Haircut weekend.. Long to... Short


It's an amazing thing, this fatherhood thing.
Every day I am reminded by headlines and stories that this world is scary.. But I look at my son and realize that it's all FOR something, there is a purpose, and there is something called love. And it's real.

Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend..

There's something about the lonely hotel..

A friend of mine and I were speaking tonight regarding hotels. He's on a business trip in the metropolis of Erie, Pennsylvania, and staying at a local 'comfort' inn of sorts.. 



But there's not much comforting about his home for the night. He said a walk down the halls seems to be an eerie reminder of the SHINING's Overlook hotel. Maybe Jack Torrance will pop out from behind a corner.. maybe those twin girls from Stanley Kubrick's version of the Stephen King classic will show up in the distance..
I told my friend to cue up some classic Art Bell Ghost to Ghost. He may, but he will also be reading a nonfiction account of serial killers. He's got a nightmare-wish if you ask me..

Yes, indeed, there is just something about the lonely hotel scene that can scare the wits out of someone..

But why?
What is it about those long and lonely hallways? Is it the carpeting? The wallpaper?

Numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts seem to have that creepy feeling. There is a feeling …

Alabama explosions

This breaking now.. CNN reporting: (CNN) - A fire broke out Wednesday night on Alabama's Mobile River after two barges loaded with natural gas exploded not far from where a once listless Carnival cruise ship was docked, authorities said.

The Mobile Fire-Rescue Department, on its official Twitter feed, reported that it had "units on the scene on east side of Mobile River where a fuel barge has exploded and is on fire." Minutes later, the fire department issued an update stating that two barges had exploded.

Three people who were burned were transported to a local hospital, fire department spokesman Steve Huffman told CNN. He did not describe the severity of their injuries. All people are believed to have been accounted for, Huffman added.
