About That Buffy Reboot…

For anyone reading that might not already know, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was my show. Which is saying a lot, because I’ve got a lot of shows that people might think that about. But Buffy was “the one.” It’s the one that I grew up with, the one that I connected with the most, the one that inspired me in a lot of ways, and the one that sticks with me today. I’ve written about my […] Read More

In Knitting Color, Part II

A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks since my previous post! Somehow, and rather unbelievably, I finally grasped the basic concepts of knitting! In the process, I’ve finished a scarf, continued work on a hat, bought supplies for more projects, and accidentally tweeted my way into the online knitting community! Yeah, it’s been a roller coaster. Here’s how it happened… After publishing the first “In Knitting Color” post towards the end of […] Read More

In Knitting Color

I’ve been trying to teach myself how to knit and it isn’t going well. Knitting is probably an unusual hobby for a thirty-something gentleman to pick up, but I’ve had a desire to learn a craft hobby. I want something to do aside from just sitting around and watching TV that’ll help me disconnect from the internet for a while. And arguably, in today’s age, is watching TV even really disconnecting when it’s streaming from […] Read More

Water for Elephants

I’ve been very busy this weekend. You might notice this website has a little bit of a different look, a different comment system (which, by the way, some comments from the old system you may have left might have disappeared in transition due to a technical glitch — sorry!), and most importantly, a brand spankin’ new logo! Try to remember it. You’re going to be seeing a lot more of it soon! In addition to […] Read More

Birthday Blogging

Once again, I’ve done a little bit of a disappearing act from these pages. If you’re one of my small handful of readers, I greatly apologize! While I always hesitate to describe my life as “hectic” (because there’s always someone way busier than I am), it hasn’t exactly been a slow couple of months. Recently, thanks to a link that I followed from Ma.tt that turned into a link that turned into another link, I’ve opted […] Read More

The Netflix Book Club

Data is beautiful. Not only do I subscribe to a subreddit with that title in which users literally share graphs and beautiful images of data that they have collected in really neat ways, but I’ve also been learning more about the concept of data gathering, mining, warehousing, and so much more in my Database Management & Design course that I’m taking at school this semester. It’s been really fascinating for me to go into Microsoft Access […] Read More

Graffiti Heart

There’s a mysterious glyph that’s been cropping up around Indy. It’s caught the eye of a few of my friends, who in turn asked me about it, knowing full well that I would have caught it, too. I’ve actually caught it now in no less than four different downtown locations. Here’s what it looks like, as pictured from the backside of the mailbox just outside of the Indianapolis Business Journal‘s offices at the corner of […] Read More

The Mix Tape, Volume II

Back in September, I put together a post listing fifteen songs that are dear to my heart. I thought of maybe doing a regular #MusicMonday segment weekly if it proved popular, but the list never really seemed to resonate with anyone other than myself. That’s totally okay though: the entire idea was to share music that makes my own heart sing. Today I’ve decided to give the list a little bit of a follow-up. I’ve […] Read More
