Back in the Saddle

Well...after a little elbow grease and good old-fashioned sticktuitiveness, The Mainframe is back up on its feet and running. KO and I have slain the demons infesting this page and the old girl is purring like new.

No new news to tell the cyber kids about today. The Mainframe hopes to soon be back to posting on a semi-daily basis...yeah, right...better to start slow.

Stay Tuned.

Well, the boys are back.
After a six year hiatus from songwriting, Metallica returns with their 8th album of original work, St. Anger.

New bassist. New logo. New band?

We'll have to wait and see...June 10.

Sign of the Beast

Man, I wanted so badly to be Wolverine.

You are Beast!

You are brilliant and extremely clever. You can
handle almost any problem swiftly and
efficiently. You are devoted to philosophy and
are always up for a good discussion.
Sometimes, though, your anger gets the best of
you and you upset those whom you care about.

I am The One

You are Neo
You are Neo, from "The Matrix."
You display a perfect fusion of heroism and compassion.

Conan and I could be roomies...

You're the best -- you know it, as does everyone
else (except for US News and World Report every
few years). You might not be hip, you might not
be pretty, but you're smart as a whip and you
never need to do another impressive thing in
your life.

Happy Memorial Day

So, since Kirsten can't ever get a day off from her job, I spent Memorial Day at work with her as she helped me gather sports footage for a promo.

You see, Kirsten's boss, Dave, saves everything that either one of them shoots for work, so there are boxes upon boxes of tapes of everything local sports image under the sun at our disposal. Need a shot of Frank Thomas playing high school football? Got it. How about the late Darryl Kile pitching for the thrice-removed defunct Columbus Astros? How much do you need? It's great, just not an easy cataloging system to decipher unless you have unlimited access to Dave's gray matter.

So, that's what we did...spent three hours dubbing over 8 minutes of clips for a 30 second promo. Seems like overkill, but it's a necessary evil.

That's my Memorial Day story. Dubbing video, and looking for bowling shoes. But hey, I did get my hair cut today! (A Little Off The Top Please, 5.26.03)
