I Directed a Music Video!

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Current Mood:Esctatic emoticon Esctatic

So last week (Thursday and Friday), I got to direct my first music video for my brother Parker’s famous band, GOGO13. It’s for a new song called “Down in a Barrel” and it’s going to be a whole lot of fun. I’ll edit it over the next couple of days and I’ll post it as soon as I’m done. woo woo!

Huge thanks to my buddy Will for helping me out with so much stuff!

Disneyland Trip!

Monday, October 12th, 2009

I’ve been so busy with work lately that I haven’t been nearly as faithful of a blogger as I should be. For that I apologize (again). I promise some amazing catch-up posts in the future. In the mean time, here’s something pretty dang fun:

On Saturday we were able to take the kids the Disneyland (thanks Dominic!!!) for the first time in four years and now that the kids are old enough to really appreciate it, it was something really special. Cricket had been talking about going to Disneyland so much back in Jersey, it was great to not have to tell her “maybe someday” or that its “too far away”. So we took some pictures, and here they are!

Bye Bye Beetle

Monday, August 3rd, 2009


This was not my car. But it looks like it – if it was in good shape.

Today I finally did it. I sold my beetle that I’ve owned since 2001. I actually paid it off in 2005… But yeah that thing. It was my friend and my enemy. It served me well and held up to my many different jobs I’ve bounced around to, and I even shipped it to the east coast.

But it wasn’t all sunshine and flowers. I dropped about $5,000 on it in repairs two summers ago, then two weeks later, the engine light came on. I decided to call it on its bluff and refuse to take it in. It retaliated against me in little, annoying ways – headlight going out, griding brakes, dropping the stupid plastic undercarraige, upholstery dropping off, even the dashboard disintegrating. See, this was the kind of dysfunctional relationship we had. I got my revenge in a not-so passive-agressive way – I just stopped driving it altogether when we moved to PA. It sat on that street for three months just pouting and collecting cobwebs.

Mad Men Yourself!

Mad Men Tyler closeup

OK, I know everyone is doing this, but it was too fun to pass up. Marylynn and I just started watching Mad Men a few weeks ago but like with all shows we watch together, she went ahead of me and now I’ll never be able to catch up. Oh well. :)

I, Vagabond

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Well I had a little moment and thought I would do a brief post (not brief) just to catch you, dear reader, up on what’s going on with my life right now. It’s crazy complicated and I’m really tired. I don’t even have my contacts in but I thought I should post something quick anyway. (not quick – 1400 words long! wow!)

First off, let me apologize for falling off the wagon with the blog-a-day challenge. Things got crazy busy with the project I’ve been working on and I just lost focus on the important things in life – such as blogging, of course.

Window Markers

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Seeing as I just barely got my post in yesterday at two minutes to midnight (Iron Maiden! Woooooooooaaaahhhh!!), I don’t have all that much new to talk about, so here’s some more pics from yesterday! This time it’s from the BEFORE church. We busted out some window markers on Gramma’s big sliding glass doors and this is what happened:

Quick Visit to Andru

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

Me and Andru. I guess he likes Bad Credit now! Awesome!

After church today, we had a wonderful dinner provided by Don and Mary and their awesome barbcueing skills. Parker joined us and fun was had by all. While we were rolling around on the floor, trying to digest the delicious meal, he and I decided that it would be a great time to go visit Andru. Now you probably don’t know who he is, so let me fill you in. In 1990, our then-parents (mom and the now ex-step dad guy) adopted a set of newborn twins from Romania. Lara Alexandra (Lara to us, but she now goes by Allee, unless she changed it again…?) and William Alexandru (we call him Andru). They were tiny little preemies that had a really rough time in the primitive hospitals in the recently uncommunist country.
