Da Brat Chronicles

While reading over some of the classic posts on the blog, I reread Eduardo’s update on Da Brat from 4+ years ago. I started to wonder what our favorite Brat was up to nowadays? It turns out Da Brat has her own YouTube channel, “DABRATTV”. This channel is full of “Bratty” goodness as you can...

Shut the Box

Just like Eduardo being “haunted” by the memory of “Vegetable Soup/Outerscope”, I have been “haunted” by the memory of a random kids show that I could only describe for years as “shut the box”. I always described it as a children’s educational animated short that appeared right after “Big Blue Marble” on KNTV channel 11....
Preschool Confusion

Preschool Confusion

My little one started preschool a few weeks ago. She was super excited about it, and it was something we were looking forward too as well. My kid can get some learnin’ done, and my wife gets some time off 3 days a week to get things done during the day. So, the idea was...
Potted Meat Challenge

Potted Meat Challenge

A few weeks ago my little brother was talking to me about an odd food product he bought at a little out of town grocery store, “potted meat food product”. He described it as being similar in taste and texture to a cheap hotdog that had been tossed in a blender.  So on my most...

No logical explanation?

Haven’t been able to post in this category in a long time, but this story fits PERFECTLY. A few weeks ago, my friend Andres and I backpacked to the Bear Lakes in the Trinity Alps. The goal was to head up Friday afternoon, and try to get all the way to Little Bear Lake which...
BEES

BEES

A week or so ago, I was home by myself getting a few errands done while the wife and kid were away for the night. I had invited a friend over to watch a game, and was putting dishes away. I glanced out the window to see if my friend had arrived, (he was going to...

Beard No Beard, the legend grows

On Friday night my younger brother relayed a VERY interesting story about our favorite local bearded bike rider. My little brother does a ton of driving for his job, and just this last Friday he was out in Palo Cedro for the day. Sometime in the mid afternoon, he stopped into a convenience store to...

Wehlcum to Wahlgreens!

Ok, this is a bit random, but I felt like I had to post something. Just last week my younger brother and our significant others, made a quick trip to the Pacific Northwest. We were spending most of our time in Portland (managed to visit a fellow MAL member Fernando) it was a low key...
Tin Foil Hats in Northern California

Tin Foil Hats in Northern California

While cleaning up our little home office the other day, I came across something that brought back some funny memories. Back in late November of 2011, my wife and I were doing our annual post Thanksgiving tradition of tracking down Christmas Trees with the in-laws. It’s a fun tradition, and recently it’s been rather easy...
Soap and Candle Mad Libs

Soap and Candle Mad Libs

I’ve noticed this before, but I really noticed it this morning when I went into the bathroom to take a shower and saw this sitting next to the sink. Who comes up with the names for hand soaps and candles? Do a bunch of people get together in a conference room, then have one shout...
Snow – Informer (1992)

Snow – Informer (1992)

I recently remembered another of what I consider one the worst songs of the 90’s.  Billed as a “reggae” song, this is more like terrible rap crossed with some horrible version of reggae that leaves you with something I’d rather call, “rapgae”. I remember this song being popular, but I didn’t realize it got as...

10 years man?!

I just wanted to point out that this blog will be celebrating it’s 10th birthday in January of 2014. We need to find a proper way to celebrate this wonderful occasion.
