I Crashed an Ostrich

I Crashed an Ostrich

Hey Team, Let me tell you a few things I recently learned about ostriches…but first I should put things in a little bit of context. July 4th of 2007 I left home on this little Amtrekker adventure of mine thinking, “Remember Swiss Family Robinson? Man, that kid on the ostrich looked like he was having…

“Moonshinery 2008” Update

“Moonshinery 2008” Update

Hey Team, Here’s the update on “Moonshinery 2008.” You all know Jeff MacPherson (better known on the webbernets as Dr. Tiki) and I got the ball rolling late last week with an attempt at mash (which, for you non-hillbillies out there is the fermented liquid that gets distilled into moonshine). As far as we know…

Disneylanding

Hey Team, What a great day of Disneylanding! Now THAT is how time should be killed (or at least maimed and left for dead). It’s hard to beat roaming around the happiest place on Earth with friends and seeing all those old acquaintances I thought were long gone while being sucked into the most impressive…

Baby Changes

Hey Team, Just a really quick update today. Dr. Tiki and I are going to try to distill our toxic brew on Thursday so the video of that should be up by this weekend and I’m sure it will be awesome (read: a fun disaster)! More importantly it doesn’t look like much has happened on…

Disaster Looms

Disaster Looms

Hey Team, After a long hiatus from crossing stuff off the list thanks to one scheduling failure after another spanning most of the country I finally feel back on track after today. I packed up the goods (mostly corn meal, sugar and a bucket) and met up with Dr. Tiki at an undisclosed location (well…

Is Horse Feed Really a Good Idea Anyway?

Is Horse Feed Really a Good Idea Anyway?

Hey Team, I’ve been reading quite a bit about moonshine lately since I’ve recently decided I don’t want to poison myself like so many ill-advised hillbillies before me. As a result I felt pretty confident when I set out this afternoon to hunt down some grain for the “mash” to start the fermentation process. A…

Nightmares

Nightmares

Hey Team, Every since I was very young I’ve had a problem with terrible nightmares. Sometimes it’s not so much that they’re gruesome, or even “scary,” it’s often just a matter of how extraordinarily vivid they are. I can’t exactly remember when this became a problem…as far back as I can recall I would lie…
