About This Site
This sweet blog of mine will serve as a temporary home for all of my content for the next few months as I ready everything organized with my own domain that I'll be getting sometime within then. If you'd like to check out my old domain, take a look through it here.
In the meantime, it will serve as a "collective" of sorts of all of my currently hosted pages, my blog, and links to all of my external stuff like Facebook and Flickr.

Wake Me Up When September Ends
I am not too sure if Andrew Jones will get the MVP for the Braves, since his average won't really be reflective of how great his season really has gone. His average is significantly less than that of Albert Pujols, but I hope that his home run count makes up for that. It's really cool that the fans in Atlanta have started to chant "MVP" every time he comes to the plate. That isn't something that's been heard in that ballpark for quite a while. In fact, Turner Field has turned around it's stereotype quite well this season. It's no longer the non-chalant and ho-hum locale that many sports writers claim it to be. At least not anymore. In the two games I've been to so far this season, it seemed like the old games from the '91 season that I've seen on ESPN Classic.
Part of that is because of the savior of the ballteam, Jeff Francoeur. I was lucky enough to be at a game during the middle of the season against the Nationals where he hit two home runs in the same game. Aside from his obvious talent, the effect that he has on the ballteam and the crowd is something else altogether. Without Jeff, the Braves are like Guns and Roses without Axel Rose. The place just has an atmosphere when he has his game on. It's stuff like that that gets you by in the postseason and I hope that's the case this year.

Freddy Was Right
Now if only I could ride my bike to and from campus and home.

Nintendo wasn't kidding. At all. Video games just reached a new era.

Big Spring Jam
I havn't been to the Big Spring Jam in two years, mostly because they just didn't have anyone good last year. There are some bands that I'd kinda like to see each night, but it's just about a band a night. I had considered getting the three day, but that seemed like excess in relation. There are at least two good ones each night, but yet I can't really decide.
I had been leaning towards Saturday night. But that's only because of the Black Crowes. Everything else is just "bleh". Sunday looks okay because of Better than Ezra, but this is Alabama, meaning the Charlie Daniels Band is always around. After thinking about it just now, Friday looks like the ideal night. I'd like to see Theory of a Dead Man (I think I saw them at the same venue two years ago) and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. And even "Creed - The Sequel" if I can try for two places at once.
Writing stuff out definately helps. That just helped me make my decision.

Well, not stupid for anyone who doesn't know about the subject matter, but stupid for someone who is a Junior in the Web Cognate. We're learning basic html stuff that's covered in the same 11th grade class that I visited a few weeks ago as a guest speaker. And using Microsoft Frontpage to do it. Yeah, it's that bad. It wouldn't be so bad if we were using Dreamweaver, but nooo.
If it wasn't such an easy A, I would have talked to my advisor and dropped this puppy weeks ago.

It's Your Fault
I picked up my first paycheck this weekend. I'm thinking that I'm going to pick up an X-Box with my next one. I've run out of excuses to not have one. Not that its that I've lost love for my Gamecube, it's just that there are a lot of games I wouldn't mind having that aren't on it. Zelda not being released until later next year pretty much did it in for me, there won't really be anything new and original until then. Just so you know.

Welcome Back, Kotter.
There's too much crazy stuff going on in the world for me to not comment and vent on. At least, this is a better outlet for doing just that. As for my old blog, spam killed Movable Type. MT was cool, but it was too complicated and vulnerable for it's own good. Blogger has gone past MT in leaps and bounds since I've left it anyways. This cookie cutter template will also have to do until I can whip up something better. But with so much on my mind lately, I can do with cookie cutter for a while.
Unfortuantely, the archives are gone and probably will remain gone. I at least have it backed up on my hard drive, but that was still over four years of my life. Perhaps I can find a way to transfer MT entries to Blogger some day.
