This is probably one of the more unsettling things I’ve seen lately (with the exception of goatse, of course). A friend of mine, Ron, pointed the site out to me. I’m sort of wondering why he was shopping here, but to each his own. I have an idea of who would be buying these costumes… Continue reading Child Pimp and Ho Costumes
My wife and I saw “Garden State” recently. It was only playing at Phipp’s Plaza for this area, but it was well worth the trip. We both enjoyed the film so much. Zach Braff (Scrub’s) wrote and directed “Garden State,” in which he co-starred with Natalie Portman (Star Wars: Episode I,II). The most interesting aspect… Continue reading Garden State – Zach Braff Blog
As recommended by Zach Braff, Gavin DeGraw gets a second from me. I’ve enjoyed going to his website allowing the playlist to continuously loop through a very nice selection of tracks. Props to the marketing genius for that. To summarize DeGraw, mix Howie Day and Jason Mraz. Any idea why it’s suddenly cooler to use… Continue reading Gavin DeGraw
We went and saw Seven Nations with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra last night. That was a killer show! We didn’t get to see the whole thing; we left after intermission to go tend to our sick baby. I did pick up a CD though, and Amy got a t-shirt (“got music?”). If you have an… Continue reading Seven Nations & Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
You probably haven’t noticed yet, but I moved gradin.com over to a real hosting service. Things should be much quicker from now on – no more waiting on images to load for you highspeed users. Sorry to have taken so long. Incidentally, if you’re interested in getting some space for yourself (maybe you’re a Gradin)… Continue reading Notice Anything?
The waiting is over for the prosumer mini-DV world as Canon (finally) releases the XL2, the follow-up to the wildly successful (some would say ground-breaking) XL1S. With both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios (film-like and TV-like, respectively), variable frame rates (again, to more closely emulate film or TV), interchangeable lens (the same as the XL1S… Continue reading Canon Announces the XL2
Some of you know this, but others are oblivious. My mom, Vivian Gradin, was in a movie when she was a young, impressionable teenager (no, not that kind of movie). The movie’s title was, Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows. Make sure you check out the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) record too – it’s a hoot! more…… Continue reading Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows
Darren “Barefoot” has kept me entertained for some time with his writings. His site was my original inspiration to get in blogging, so give it a look.
The Honda Element has an unusual aesthetic value about it. I believe the general favor for this vehicle is split between those who love it and those who hate it. Oddly still, that split is probably 50/50. My wife and I coincidentally agree on our view and like the overall design. We’re both mostly utilitarian… Continue reading The Honda Experience
You laugh now, but try searching for your name in Google’s image search. This is “Olaf”, the photorealistic centaur. This image came from Freak Aspect’s Internet gallery. You can see it here.
