In case you don’t know (Denver’s Tetris League)

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

The monthly Tetris tournament hit the fan last night. I filmed a bunch of matches (I don’t know about you, but watching video of competitive 3-minute-limit Tetris on YouTube is quite exciting). I also recovered from a round-two loss (it’s double-elimination), won my next 6 or 7 matches (including a “W” against Vinnie, who’s good […]

My new Colorado driver’s license is a flimsy piece of shit.

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

It just showed up in the mail. My new driver’s license, from my new state of residence. Colorado. And holy crap! this driver’s license is a flimsy piece of shit. It looks like it was designed by somebody who really hated their job. Let me tell you the negative qualities of this driver’s license in […]

Goin’ to Crested Butte

Friday, January 12th, 2007

So Denver’s got some Chicago-style wind chills running through the streets, and I’m off to Crested Butte to go visit Mark and Ali for the weekend. We’re up against a couple winter warnings on the drive up, which could make it an adventure getting there. Hopefully not too much of an adventure. Saturday Update: Had […]

Some observations on this whole Darrent Williams murder thing

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

First, I didn’t know Williams. I’m not religious about football. The guy died 150 feet from where I live, and I guess that makes me feel weird / closer to his passing. Here are some of the things I’ve noticed since his death: People are definitely, definitely still racist. This event kind of brought them […]

This year I’m putting together the Denver Post webcam coverage, with the help of co-worker and tech guy Doug Conarroe. There will probably be links to the webcams starting around […]
