Ugly People Put Your Hands Down!

This weekend we took our crew to the Portable Sounds Tour’s final show here in New York. Family Force 5 was great — although their set was too short. TFK was good, as always — although they’re lookin a little old. And Toby Mac was, for me, the surprise hit of the show! They were…

Significant Parts of My Body are Held Together by Tape

This weekend we’re going to a concert — Toby Mac, Thousand Foot Krutch and Family Force 5. If P.O.D. were there (and didn’t play any of their Jamaican music) this would be the greatest Christian rock event in history. Even without them, it’s gonna be pretty amazing. I’m a little nervous though — last time…

Adventure

I’d like it if the video spoke for itself, but sometimes I’m not sure if I’m getting out what I really want to say. Like my mind has ideas, and it chooses words to associate with those ideas, but then when I say them, I’m not sure if they convey it properly, or if their…

I’ll be taking in our modem for a replacement, but I’ve moved the server to do double-duty as a print server at the CP Campus, where there’s a (hopefully) more reliable Internet connection. Sorry to everyone who’s been trying to…

Stuff and Such

This morning I did something I haven’t done in over a month… I washed my left arm! Why? Because today was the first day that I was allowed to get it wet — and it was scary. I kept wincing every time a drop of water his my arm — not because it hurt, but…

Big Day for Jon

In a few minutes I’m going back to the plastic surgeon to have my new skin examined. If all goes well, I may be able to at least reduce the size of my massive bandage. If things haven’t gone well, the bandage will remain — or worse, they’d have to try the skin graft again….

Faced with a Choice?

Have you ever been faced with a choice? Not the easy kind where you’re choosing between right and wrong, but the tough kind — when you’re choosing between multiple, and equally good options… For example, when I applied to college, I had abysmal grades, and on top of that, I was graduating a year ahead…
