Thoughts & Rambles

This page is just that.  Thoughts and rambles and such.  It’s kind of a catch-all for shit I don’t know what to do with.  Enjoy!

State of the Corner Address

Well, folks, it’s a new year…finally.  2016 kind of sucked the big one. Too many deaths, both close family to us here at the Corner, as well as highly loved celebrities.

We did have some good times last year, though. Number one: I married my love, Amy. Best thing I could have ever done. She’s too perfect for me.

While my mom and dad were here, Rob (dad) and I met up with Norm Miller in Jackson, WY to do a little paddling on the Snake River (beautiful), after a night sleeping by the Grand Tetons…wow.

Let’s see, what else….Oh yeah! We got to see Ozzy on Sabbath’s farewell tour, AND Ryan Adams at Red Butte w/ Amanda Shires. Two great shows indeed.

The Corner has officially turned 1 year old (today) and I have some plans in motion…In the coming weeks, I plan to brew my own beer (thanks Ethan), do some paddling (we just got our first SUP, thanks to Muz), hike a bunch, as well as start a recipe segment…maybe even have some guest authors stop by. More is in the works, but I won’t spoil anything just yet. 2017 hopes to be a damn good year. All of the wonderfulness, without all of the shit.

As always, stay tuned, and stay clear of those damned shifty raccoons…


Some say there’s a double (at least) for everyone out there.  I haven’t met mine yet, but I’m convinced it’s possible.  Some also say it’s a bad omen, or terrible luck.  I don’t know about that…these people made it work:

David Tennant & Dave Haywood

Simon & Simon & Simon & Garfunkel

Andrew Divoff & Slim Whitman

Ed Quinn & Eddie Rabbitt

Chucky & Robert Smith


Ron Burgundy & Marty Robbins

This Guy & Coolio

Stay tuned…I’m sure I’ll find some more soon.  If you see any doppelgängers, either in photo or in the wild, please send them in.  I’m always on the lookout…

Happy Anniversary, Corner..ers…!

Well, we made it two whole years, friends and neighbors. It’s been a…fun?…couple of years. I hope so.  It’s damn sure been interesting for me. A bunch has happened, both on the site and off. I started my own site on a whim, put out my very own EP, took some trips, did some paddling, and gamed a little here and there.  Most importantly, though, I married my best friend and partner in time, Amy.

I don’t know how I landed her, but she saved me. When we got together, I was a 30 year old unemployed musician living with my parents. I smoked packs of cigarettes daily and drank nothing but Mountain Dew…Yowsa.  Now, I haven’t smoked in 4 years, and I prefer a nice cup of tea (with a nip of whiskey if possible, please) to that sugary shot of caffeine. I digress…

We’ve got a big move this year (West to Midwest) and plan to do some traveling…does this mean a new page at The Corner? I don’t know, get off my back! Well, yeah, actually…maybe so.

Anyway, I’m off to do some gaming…perhaps the dishes. I don’t know yet….OH, I brewed some tea! I forgot! See ya!

After These Messages….

Merry Christmas from The Corner, folks! I’m taking a few days off, but I have some fun stuff planned for the new year, so check back! Until then, you should watch The Ref. It’s on Netflix!

You should also, probably play some FO4…I hear there’s some special item in Diamond City today, via: [XB1] The Christmas Mod…But where is it?!?
