I am throwing out my Apple 9600 Power PC. I am amazed that it still boots up after 17 years. This machine got me through my graduate school digital media program. When I bought it the system had a “huge” 9GB SCSI hard drive and 1.5GB of ram. At the time is was a beast. Now before I tossed it I was able to back it up with a small 8GB Flash drive over a first generation Read the rest of this entry »

Stately Wayne Manor!

WayneManor

The last few months have been an extremely stressful but yet amazing period. I seriously injured my leg training for a martial arts related documentary I am filming, had reconstructive surgery on my knee, watched in nervous anticipation as my daughter waited to receive college acceptance letters, and celebrated both my daughter’s 18th birthday and 23 years with my wife. However the most joyous and nerve racking experience of this time was closing on a new apartment.

Much to the annoyance of family and friends I have been referring to our new home as stately Wayne Manor!

Civil War = Nerdgasm!

I laughed. I cried. I reconsidered my position on the existence of a higher power! And the eyes. Oh how I loved the eyes!

Batfleck looks good!

February 11th, 2016 Posted in Batman, Comics and Sci-Fi, Entertainment | No Comments »

I am so happy right now! And I say that with my knee totally jacked up and elevated! This might be the cinematic Batman that fans have been hoping to see. The action and fight scenes seems off the charts. It looks like they have finally understood that the Batman needs to be the epitome of frightening, a true Dark Knight. Affleck may force me to eat my words, and I couldn’t be more pleased.

The new SPS website!

The new website for the CUNY School of Professional Studies (SPS) is now available. I am very proud to be associated with this organization. The site sports a beautiful new design that highlights the amazing direction of the college.The marketing statement, “Education that works as hard as you do”, is a perfect description of SPS.

On a personal note, I have to admit that I love the new section dedicated to the Communication and Media program. I also need to remember to ask the marketing director for a high quality version of the headshot that was used on my bio page. It was the best photo of me I have seen in years.

Ben might prove me wrong

January 10th, 2016 Posted in Batman, Comics and Sci-Fi, Entertainment | No Comments »

Those that follow my blog should already know that I am a huge Batman fan and that I wasn’t happy at all with the choice of Ben Affleck to play him in the upcoming “Batman vs Superman” film. However the above preview makes me think that I might have been totally wrong at least as it pertains to Affleck. All I can say now is that I am totally gassed to see this movie.

And notice that I am now referring to him as Ben, and not Affleck or El Headmo. Still he has a really big head. Massive.

I had a great time hanging out with my mom on her birthday. I am still not sure why she insists on having White Castle every year. My stomach can’t deal with it anymore.
