Dinosaur Curtains


My friends Bill and Turner Ross made this short documentary film Dinosaur Curtains while filming their award winning documentary 45365. It follows my friend Doc and his fiance Megan as they await the broadcast premiere of their appearance on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Watch it. Live the dream.

My orange tree is full of oranges so I've been beginning everyday with fresh squeezed orange juice.

Canada treated Markus, Ian, and I to an IMAX 3-D screening of Avatar. Not the best movie experience since Star Wars as we had heard some describe it, but it is a great movie worth seeing. I would say that it is the best sci-fi movie to come out since the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Christmas Music


I'm not a big fan of Christmas music but I guess it has it's place in the world. If you are looking for something different try downloading (for free) my friend Ian's new Christmas album. You might recognize him from the Doritos commercial I was involved with. Be warned that the album contains strong language. Not something you want to play for the family while opening presents. 


R.I.P. Saab


1937 -2009

I've always been a fan of the 900 Turbo.

My grandmother used to make these every Christmas. I always looked forward to them. Fortunately, Kristina's mom makes them too. Kristina gave me some to take home. So good.

I love that I can drive a mile to the park, hike up a hill, and see snow capped mountains in one direction and the ocean in the opposite direction.
