With Obama taking office as the 44th President, Wizard magazine commissioned Alex Ross to paint the March issue commemorating the historic occasion. The cover shows our new President ripping his shirt open (a la Superman) to reveal the letter "O". Obama has stated that he is a comic book head and that Spiderman is one of his favorites.…

Driving by the old site of Brooks College last week, it was a trip to see the front building being completely torn down. I spent a good ten years kicking around this place as as student, teacher, and staff; so this scene made me stop and wonder... how long until I'm the old guy down at the bar talking about "I remember when"???…

"Turn left....now make a right...another left...wait...is this right? It SHOULD be around here somewhere!" Your car slows, accelerates, slows, accelerates...STOP!
Ahhh, looking for an apartment in Long Beach. The emotions that can arise from one little trip. Stress, anger, frustration, dismay, elation, relief, and happiness. It can give you a headache and then make you smile when you have found that perfect pad. The one place you can… Continue

Today i began the day tossing and turning in bed, at least 3 times i woke up in the early hours of the day and restlessly tried to calm myself to sleep.

I did feel well rested when i finally woke up at 6:15, i planned breakfast with my sweetheart Ana and that was sure to start the day off right. After breakfast my plan was to dedicate two hours to… Continue

So here is the story, I'm currently living in Champaign-Urbana Illinois. I've been here about 16 years or so, and the city isn't bad. It has a lot to offer: culture, a nice downtown area, lots of parks, etc. It also offers ridiculous windchills, snow and ice in the winter. Which I'm kinda over.
Actually, I hate the winters here.
Add in that most of my professional oppertunities have dried up here, and most of my friends have moved on to other cities...and you can see why I… Continue
