Monday Night Drumming

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Last night marks the first time I’ve been able to use the fancy new field recorder to do some real recording.  Although there were only two of us to play, and I was certainly a bit out of sorts, we were able to pull off some interesting bits that rendered pretty well on the H2.  [...]

Musings for the week of 2008-12-22

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Just noticed I’m eating at a place with an 84 health score. If I don’t twit in after lunch, I’m dead. #
I have lived through lunch! Perhaps hot coffee will sterilize my bowels. #
70°F on Dec. 18th – this weather has sapped my energy completely. #
Nothing beats blasting out your favorite tunes from high school [...]

Scientist Poop and the Epic Fail

Friday, November 21st, 2008

Our son recently contracted Streptococcus within his person. We’re all familiar with such things, but the signs of this particular infection alluded us. We knew he had a stomach ache, but little else. The stomach ache became chronic and Balthazar the harbinger used is poo oracle to let us know something was [...]

Offspring, Part Deaux

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

In nine days, we’ll be a family of four, having welcomed a new baby girl into the Gradin household on the 24th of this month…at 6:00am. That’s how we role. My wife likes to plan for the unplannable. However, she has made certain assurances for this life-event, and I have little doubt [...]

Where’s “My” Community?

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

I am imagining a better WordPress. For those of you who don’t know, it’s the engine behind Gradin.com, as well as countless other blogs on the Interweb. I have been using WordPress for several years now and I really enjoy it. Its many features have grown, and grown on me. Now [...]

I’m a Climate Witness

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

I was contacted a while back by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), originally through Flickr from a picture I posted on the severe drought conditions around Lake Lanier. I was invited to write a “Climate Witness” story to tell the world about how the climate has changed in northeast Georgia from my perspective. [...]

Threadless Submission (Critique)

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

I am planning to start posting more submissions to Threadless for consideration in their shirt designs.  Their methods have matured so much since my earlier submission and purchases!  They now have the ability to allow artists to submit designs for critque prior to final publishing.  It’s a great way for someone like myself to get [...]

The day’s finally over – we’re resting easy at the the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia. #
Ritz Carlton: Super swank, expensive rooms, luxury hotel. Internet access is still an additional charge. Good thing I’m resourceful. #

Reading Boy

Monday, January 21st, 2008

My son, at nearly 5 years of age, is big into the whole good vs. evil concept. He loves superheroes, Star Wars, and nearly every incarnation of fictional character one can imagine serving one of the aforementioned roles; good or evil. We played “superheroes” most of the day, Sunday. I was “The [...]
