December 13, 2005: Dean Gray Tuesday

In early 2004, a musician named DJ Danger Mouse released a mashup project which he called the Grey Album. Being it was a remix of the Beatles’ White Album and Jay-Z’s Black Album, it was a very cool and fitting name. Shortly after the album was released on the Internet, music company EMI sent a […]

Batman Begins: Another Great Comic Book Movie

Last night I stayed up late and finally watched Batman Begins. I ended up watching the DVD on Casey’s Powerbook since I tend to like my movies nice and loud. Anyway, I absolutely awesome – one of the best comic book movies to date and the best Batman movie ever, hands down. I rank it […]

New EduTech Website Launched

Tonight the world (or maybe just North Dakota) finally got to see what I’ve been working on for the last several months. We launched the new EduTech website at about 5:30 this evening.

It had monopoly power over the computer desktop and web browser markets and, as a result, was in the middle of a huge antitrust case against the United States Department of Justice. Because there were few […]

Kael Update

Sorry for the lack of updates – it’s been a busy few days, as you can probably imagine. Because Kael is a preemie, it took him a little while to figure out the whole eating thing, which was a concern for the first couple of days. We spent hours the first nights feeding him drops […]

Only One More Month…

That’s right – our due date is only one month away from today! It’s hard to believe how fast the pregnancy has gone, but thankfully we’re slowly getting things ready. We picked up the dresser/changing table from Sears this weekend (no assembly required this time) and got our crib mattress on Friday, so I think […]
