The Man has turned into The Legend.

Dan Lowe was THE man at OU whilest i was there from 2000-2004. I knew him through Rob Metzger (a fellow Sears stock team member). He was very kind, funny, and a tremendous basketball player. I hung out with him a few times, but you wouldn't know that! He made everyone feel like they were welcome, and i think he knew everyone by name that was on campus. You can read more about him in the link up there, they recount his impact on OU better than i can.

He passed away unexpectedly while playing basketball. If he had to choose where to die, i think he would have gone the way he did. what sucks is the timing.

the world did not deserve to lose that much talent so soon.

Self Esteem

Any time i'm feeling down... or like i'm not the man... i just watch this video and i'm good to go for the rest of the day. everything becomes brighter and the world's problems seem to melt away.

In case you haven't seen it before, check out The Geek's Gallery. this pic is of rockstar quality. if the "lindons sing folk songs" ever gets out of the red tape and is produced, this is the cover shot. it makes me feel happy.

have a great, warm-fuzzy day! jesus and i love you!

She's on to us...

By buddy Chris Edwards' girlfriend Tracie has to be the funniest blogger in the short history of blogging. However, sadly, she is also very observant and therefore it's back to the drawing boards for us E.T.'s.

From Tracie's blog 'emotionaltoothpaste': "Maybe I watched too much X-Files as a kid (and adult), but I'm pretty sure that Chipotle is, in fact, an evil chain started by the shadowy part of the government (well, let's be honest, at this point the whole government in pretty f-ing shadowy) in order to aid the aliens which are attempting to invade this planet and create a race of alien-human hybrids. Every single time I eat a burrito, within an hour or so, I'm dead asleep in a spicy, beany food coma. During these comas I have the weirdest dreams. Ever. On par with The Birth Control Dreams. Same thing happens to Chris. (When I started this post, I planned to tell you all about my dreams that I had yesterday during my post-burrito naps, but after I started to tell one of my co-workers about them this morning, I remembered that you pretty much sound like a total boring tard when you try to tell others about your dreams, unless the dream is super vivid and has, like, man eating wolves in it, or something. So, yeah, I'll spare you the excercise of attempting to narrate the surrealistic, and just tell you the dreams involved a $400 bottle of Grand Mariner, a 5'6' baby, who was in fact my sister, and an alternate-reality version of Chris.) "

meanwhile, nature continues to give us the middle finger to prove that once and for all... nature hates us...

We are Family!

everybody get together and sing! what a horrible song... anyways... drum roll.......


The Halflings

this past weekend i met Key Alexander Lindon. i'm still thinking on meeting him and his girlfriend Amber. It's strange to meet someone who's lived 18 years without you and yet you know their life story within 10 minutes of meeting them. my mind is still trying to process everything.... but it was completely awesome!

more later!

I look online every week to see if there are any people i know in the Times-Reporter local life section.


Chad McConnell and I used to run around during our sophomore and junior years. AND he runs his own landscaping business! COOL!

Scott Heil was on the Decepticons YMCA basketball team junior and senior year. He drove me to the hospital when i broke my ankle.

WOW! This officially means i'm getting old. Two engagements and this weekend i'm going to Jeremy Rober's wedding back in Dennison. And I'm married and have a mortgage... mort=death... so once again i'm dreadfully aware of how short life is. i mean, yesterday i was hanging out with these guys worrying about my final english paper for Mr. J and now i'm concerned with profit margins. i never believed my mom when she said that life goes fast.... but this is crazy! can't complain though! i'm happy as hell with a big condo to organize and a hot wife to strut around with!

and how excited am i about the future? my head just expld85ryh9p43hfn9oagb87e9


Danica was Winnie Cooper on the Wonder years but now she's HOT and in Stuff Magazine. Normally, I wouldn't go through such sexist magazines (of course not, me? please--i'll keep telling myself this... i'm sad)... but damn.

except for in this picture i think she broke her neck. sad really cause she's really, really cute! and what's with the wicked witch of the west shoes? okay, maybe not exceptional (like KATE!), but she was my first TV girl crush.

*and the moral of the story is: the more things change the more they stay the same.*

Grocery Store Wars | Join the Organic Rebellion

Cuke, use the Farm!

Normally I detest Star Wars remakes because everything's been done before (except Muppet Show and Muppet Babies remakes, those are great!). But this one stands out because it's incredibly well filmed!

This is a great creative way to market. Props to the Organic Trade Association! make sure to click on "Meet the Puppets" after the film.
