The time has finally come!

This past June I hit a milestone.  I have actually owned a MacBook for 10 years and kept it functional.  Sure, I had to replace the battery, upgrade the RAM and actually pay for an OSX upgrade DVD so I could put Lion for free, but considering those are the only ‘repairs’ I’ve had to…

Damn Aging Process

Yesterday I threw my back out while trying to get my daughter into her car seat. It was not one of my finest moments, but over the past seven years this has been getting a little too frequent, and I refuse to spend any more money on chiropractors. I didn't have any interest in exercise…

July has been an expensive month.

For the past year I’ve been talking about how happy I’d be to get rid of my phone again, and just use an iPad for communications, like I did six years ago.  My mentality was, if someone can’t get ahold of me when I’m out of the house, maybe that’s not the worst thing in…

Twitter QR Code

‪I see Twitter is doing the Snapchat thing now. ‬ Here’s mine:

Cat Tales

  Cat Tales I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not totally happy with the way this one turned out. Especially the shape of the cats face in the first two frames. I didn’t notice it until I started scaling the image down. Part of me wants to redraw the whole damn thing, which I…

Don’t mind us. Just the new Sunday morning routine of hanging out in/under a SpongeBob blanket and looking for Boxing Day deals.

Got to the hospital to find her in her first NICU issued sleeper. She is apparently not a fan of sleeves.

Just ate. In about a week she won’t need the remaining IV or feeding tube anymore.

Here’s a picture of my little girl. She’s so small she can barely wrap her fingers around the tip of my index finger. It’ll be a while before we can bring her home, but it’ll be great when we can!

Work In Progress: Baby’s Room. 

After ripping out that rickety old closet last week, I was left with the task of repairing the deteriorating wall it was hiding. Luckily I had a bucket of plaster and some scrapers in my mudroom, and a couple extra partial buckets of plaster and tape donated from my family.  I’m going to let this…


The top two photos are from when we fora moved in. The second two are from yesterday. I guess I’ll be slowly documenting the conversion of my office/library into my daughter’s room. Check out that old wallpaper they built that shitty closet over.

I’m going to have a daughter!

   I’ve known for months that I’m going to be a father, but until today we didn’t have a clue what the gender was going to be.  Now it feels so much more real. We need to pick out the paints, and I gotta get to work on that baby room.  Gotta order the carpet…

Found my DSLR on the weekend and figured I’d get a little practice in with it. I’m just glad it still works. Since I got my iPhone 5s last year, I hardly ever use my actual camera anymore.

DSLR: Top Photos This Week

                  It’s been a while since I last used my camera for taking photos, so I figured I’d try to get in a little practice every week.  Going forward I’ll start posting the better photos here. 

Lazy Saturday Afternoons…

I really miss those…and pretty soon it’ll be about 18 years before I get another.  Even though I managed to screw up my back, and am hobbling around like someone three times my age, I’ve been pretty busy today, but not as busy as I have the past few weekends. I’ve got a lot of…

Prepping dinner. Pepper looks fine on the outside, but is nice and mouldy on the inside. Gross.

Trying to put my #podcasting rig back together. Repurposing an old iPad, iPhone, iPods into the mixer for sound effects, playlists, interviews and from there the audio goes to both the iMac for upload to SoundCloud(probably) and an old GoPro as a backup and for posting a video version to YouTube or Vimeo if I…


It’s storming outside. We’ve got nothing my better to do, so I’m playing with my camera. Yup.

If I keep hitting my @fitbit goals like this, I’ll start losing weight again in no time.

Pixar’s Rules of Storytelling.

I can’t argue with the calendar. Okay, maybe not Facebook. Twitter. I’ll look at Twitter. @theoatmeal.

Didn’t know this still worked, but when I turned it on, it had six audio files from a ghost walk I did. 6 years ago. The audio is pretty bad. Sounds like a lot of rustling in my jacket. It’s not until I hear someone say: “I AIN’T WALKNG ACROSS NO GRAVEYARD!” that I remember…

Read comics.

Read comics. All comics. And then cut them open to steal their power. warrenellis

It’s been a while since I last used my GoPro for anything, so I figured I’d do a time lapse test. Got a pretty weird effect, but I kinda like it. I’d like to try and use it in more of a long form story. (Source:

So my plan was to charge up my cameras. The cat said ‘NO!’/’MEOW!’ Hopped onto my lap, flopped down and fell asleep using my camera bag as a pillow. I just don’t have the heart to move her. #cats #cameras

This is how my wife describes me on #snapchat.

The weather app makes Winnipeg look like a 1930s Werewolf movie.

Just a little smokey out. #instaweather #instaweatherpro #weather #wx #winnipeg #winnipeg

How about a vintage bottle of #Redbull that expired ten years ago. I believe it has reached a state that will cause blindness if consumed.

Cleaning up my office I found my old #FantasticFour keychain. I haven’t used it in a decade. It looks like it has seen better days.

This is my television antenna. I was able to make it without using the #RedGreen method.

The Saturday morning routine. #Caturday

Cement factory.

@marvel cards from #1991. These were my obsession when I was a kid.

Quiet time.

Read this book! You’d be surprised by how many hurt feelings and burnt bridges are behind your favourite characters and creators. #MarvelComics The Untold Story

I set the bags down for one second, forgetting there is catnip in one, I turn around and see this.
