Dear Netflix…

I don’t know how to say this so I’m just going to have to get straight to the point. I don’t want to hurt you but you’ve left me no choice: I’m dumping you. I don’t want you in my home anymore. I wish you the best, Netflix. It’s over. Finito. Finished. Adios. I’m done with you. You’ve been good to me throughout the years. When you came around the block all shiny and new, promising great entertainment in such a novel and convenient way, I just couldn’t resist. I immediately knew that I had to have you. It was … Continue reading Dear Netflix…

Deodorant and NY Comic Con 2011

Today is Comic Con 2011, I thought I’d share some things I’ve learned from my previous two visits at the con. The first time I went to the comic con two years ago, it was an incredibly awesome experience. I was a complete newbie to it all and I found myself really enjoying myself like a small, giddy child would. I would never forget that first time. The experience was made all the more worthwhile because I was walking the floor with my best friend and former Marvel/DC Comics illustrator and inker extraordinaire, Hector Collazo. Meeting his former big name … Continue reading Deodorant and NY Comic Con 2011

Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

There are many things I find comforting throughout my often hectic day. I always retreat to a good book while flying on long trips, open up my iPad and surf the web or read an ebook. I could listen to music anywhere, anytime, any place and find that incredibly comforting. Music fills my soul and calms me down. My 9-year old jokes that I find comfort and relaxation via my large screen HDTV, movies or video game system (and she wouldn’t be wrong in that assessment). A nice drive in my Mustang would also be a close contender. A cup … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

Life in the So-called Space Age: Parking Meters

A couple of years ago I was visiting Florida on business and while on a particular lunch break, I parked my car and started to fish for some coins out of my pocket when I noticed that the parking meter I was standing in front of didn’t take coins. I looked at the meter closely and saw to my amazement that I could pay by cell phone! All I had to do was dial the number and arrange a payment. How cool is that?! I don’t remember the details of the transaction exactly nor the exact city (was it Coral … Continue reading Life in the So-called Space Age: Parking Meters

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunset

While away on business in Miami, Fl. a couple of years ago, I decided to take a drive in this beautiful city. I didn’t want to stay cooped up in my hotel room so I did a little bit of exploring after checking in. Carrying my trusty Canon Powershot with me, I saw this beautiful sunset and immediately had to pull over and take the shot. I took several pictures with various settings. Time was running out as I was quickly losing light and a beautiful opportunity. I’ve never really taken sunset shots so this was my first. This was … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunset
