I am a plane spotter. I go to the airport and I shoot planes with my camera. Sometimes I take videos. This was a UPS 747-400 cargo flight into MSP airport on June 14, 2018.
I cannot praise Linkin Park more. I began my studies about youth suicide at the University of Minnesota in January 2015, and was working on my field experience for my degree when Chester died. I’ve seen Linkin Park live multiple times over a decade, and I felt the pain. I also looked on as a new generation experienced what my generation did in 1994 with Kurt Cobain, but with trained eyes. We lost …
The walk has been walked. Now I need to talk the talk. Although I participated in the CE+HD 2018 commencement, I have not yet earned the diploma from Office of the Registrar. There are some dangling strings with the college. CE+HD has monthly graduations for which you apply the month before. I’m aiming to apply for June graduation in May. Or July graduation in June, at the latest. My psychiatrist prescribed new medication …

I know how to make a blog. Aren’t I smart!
Remember—I have a Bachelor of Science in Theatre, Communication, and Youth Studies. Therefore, the fact that this is a photo of a stage prop should resonate loudly. This prop portrays a great level of respect between a stage manager, actor(s), and director. The stage manager stores and keeps the prop safe at all times when not in use during a scene. This includes during a rehearsal, and during dark times. This is usually …
I added a new M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive to my computer today. It’s the second M.2 form-factor, and the third SSD. My original SSD, an OCZ Vertex 3, is still my system drive, but I am moving that to the OCZ RD400. The Samsung 960 EVO I got today will be for large media, like video editing and RAW format images from my D-SLR. I can’t say zoom! Zoom! Or vroom! …
Back in February 2015, I wrote about a person I admire and would like to work with. Due to events that occurred over the summer, my choice has changed. I want to work with five unique individuals who are in a difficult place and time right now. Mike, Joe, Rob, Dave, and Brad: the surviving members of Linkin Park. I can’t express the respect and empathy I have for them. They have such …
I’m grateful so many were willing to participate in the One More Light Chester Memorial video last Tuesday.. I got goosebumps when it started to take shape. I want LP to perform at the Super Bowl. With Chester up on the big screen. Natalie Cole sang with her late father Nat Cole to do “Unforgettable” many years ago. It’s not a new concept. Maybe this next spring is too soon. But the Super …
Today I went to a campus event from a theatre company that works with kids. We all wrote stories. Here’s mine: Pennies Under The Piano Last Tuesday we made a decision to look under the piano, and do you know what we found? PENNIES! Green pennies. Red pennies. Purple pennies…. Even clear pennies. We started to collect the pennies into a pile, and the pile grew and grew. We realized that no two …
We made it! We’re there!
This video pretty much speaks for itself. Enjoy!
I love this song.

I don’t understand a word they sing, but something about this is groovy.
So… Bing went and did this: http://www.bing.com/search?q=periodic+table I remember having to memorize most of this chart; and I recall recent discoveries that expanded this table of elements. It’s amazing how the Internet has brought new information to our fingertips. But nothing beats Tom Lehrer’s Element song:

I don’t know how I feel about this piece by Portishead, which is said to represent SOS by ABBA, but reminds me of Björk.

The movie Boyhood is amazing. Filmed with the same cast over 12 years. Amazing. Not to mention, Ethan Hawke.
Some things just aren’t right. This is one of those things.
