I am a writer

This blog has existed since 2008. Before it, I authored six other blogs all of which were successful for their purpose. Back in the day, you made your blog topical and if you wanted a new topic, you started a new blog. It wasn’t unusual that people kept multiple blogs on their server. It wasn’t …

Amazon’s switch to USPS for Rural Mail?

Over the last 9 months, more and more of my packages from Amazon are being sent via USPS. Before writing this post, I did some Googling and it appears I’m not alone and this is some big political thing right now but basically over the years, USPS has done a better job in both pricing …

Shipping

I used to ship things with my name on them. I haven’t done that in a while. Shipping was what got me up every morning, the ability to bring a product to the public. I’d like to do that again. I do it at my job. We ship very often and I’m always working on …

“The Best Offer”

I watch a lot of films, maybe 10 movies a week on average. Throughout 2013, there wasn’t a single film that really hit home but this one did. I felt very close to Virgil while also identifying very much with Claire. Both characters had some things I could relate to but ultimately the ending rips …

★ Red vs Blue (2012 Edition)

To many Americans and journalists, 2012 is an “election year’ so the coverage (aka name calling) is turned up to 11. The joke is that every year is an election year. I’m not talking about a global scale. I’m talking about The USA and how every November, citizens vote for the best candidate for local, …

★ A Complete Shift in My Media Consumption

I think we all saw this coming. How long could I sustain so much intake of technology articles and independent YouTube videos and cute cat videos and Tumblr GIFs? My first blog was published in 1999. I get emails from young guys who read this blog with birthdays in ’99. I’m an old-timer and I just can’t …
