Ay, you know what’s better than doing Baton Rouge? Doing Baton Rouge on someone else’s dime! That’s how I struck big this weekend, getting information for two new blogs. I took a long-awaited visit Leo’s Rollerland this past Saturday for a birthday party, but since I still need to edit the accompanying video, I’ll jump … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — TJ Ribs
All right, if you’ve skimmed through my last few entries, you’ll remember me talking about a book I was writing. It was called #SociallyAwkward, and it was to be some sort of cautionary tale for the many young men who might be socially inept and don’t like their life as much as they should and … Continue reading What Can YOU Do for BROWN?
This entry is written in response to the article “Why I Love Baton Rouge” by NOLA.com writer Kiri Walton. I came across it at 2:30 this morning while designing graphics for a local production company. The article hit home not only because of the title and content, but because of Ms. Walton’s background; she moved … Continue reading Why I Also Love Baton Rouge
I’m in the process of writing a book called #SociallyAwkward, a two-part biography aimed at young men who have found themselves in social situations that they can’t seem to find their way out of. I am writing the second part right now, and since some of my future blogs may play into the events that … Continue reading Dream Log: 12-26-13 — Follow-Up
This is my first dream log in over a year. It’s the day after Christmas, and it’s also my “half-birthday,” as we called it in elementary school, meaning that I’m exactly six months from my twenty-fifth birthday. I got great presents this year, but the sleep afterwards was so-so. This was the third dream I’ve … Continue reading Dream Log: 12-26-13
The 'minions' comment is simply tongue in cheek. Carry on. You know what makes my ass hurt? Politics, viral videos, today's music, cephalopods (Google it) and the endless debate of Steffy vs. Hope on Bold and the Beautiful. I won't even lie--I didn't know Steffy was coming back today. But like clockwork, the conversation quickly … Continue reading “The Bold and the Beautiful” — Steffy’s Back (And Her Minions, Too)
As a culture, we’ve become obsessed with reality TV—these “real,” heavily pre-planned shows (not scripted, because there’s a difference) that steal at least sixty minutes of our time on a daily basis. We’ve become so obsessed that their stars are now household names, have become legitimate celebrities whether we like it or not, and their … Continue reading Why I Watch Reality TV
Right on time with my seventh Shuttle launch, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity opened in theaters. Any true spaceflight and astronomy aficionado like me would normally have a huge beef with Hollywood-tainted space flicks—the launch sequence in Armageddon would have one of us ready to take a Louisville Slugger to the screen. But just as projected, Gravity … Continue reading ‘GRAVITY’ — All in The Day’s Work
Way back, after the second PoV of BB15 ended, I hopped in for another one of my long, hot steamy showers and I had a flashback. I’ve sort of made a name for myself in designing fan-made “Big Brother” theme songs and intros, and I thought back to this: This was a trial run for … Continue reading What if #BB15 and #TheChallenge Crossed Over?
There have been far more flows than ebbs in and around LA as the cast of Bold and the Beautiful has taken us on many new journeys. My last B&B blog was two months ago, and I haven't written anything because I had no motivation. Nothing was worth talking about--there was everything to rehash and … Continue reading “The Bold and the Beautiful” — Open Wyatt, Shut it Down
