2012 October Movie Marathon

Posted in Movies on October 4th, 2012 by D

Its October again and that means its time for the October Movie Marathon. This is where to get ready for Halloween i watch 30 movies in the month of October. The first year I did this it was 30 vampire movies. The next year I attempted to do 30 zombies movies, but I had trouble finding enough watchable zombie movies on Netflix Watch Instantly. to cover the 30 days. For the 3rd annual October Movie Marathon I’m just going to do random horror/creature/Halloweeny type movies for the month. I’m going to start the month with a heavy focus on the classics, Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, etc. Movies that i never really took the time to sit down and appreciate. By the end of this I should be in proper Halloween mood for the fun and festivities to follow.



Today’s the Day

Posted in Travel on September 20th, 2012 by D

Tonight we start the trip to bring Jon to his new home in Fresno.  12 states in 3 days.    I fly back to Rochester Monday morning at 7 AM.   We have no choice but to get there by then.  It is going to be a long, but very fun day as I say good bye to my best friend from the last 14 years.

Today is also the day I finally get another tattoo.  It’s been almost 10 years since I got my last one.   All I’m saying about the new one is – Don’t Panic.

I will be posting updates from the trip and tweeting as much as I can about the journey and adventure to come.

Stupid Mondays

Posted in General on July 25th, 2011 by Dennis

Woke up this morning and I actually gained a pound.  So I started day 2 at 271 pounds.  Felt good today, was hungry by the end of the day.  This is going to be an interesting week….

Sunday Sunday Sunday

Posted in General on July 24th, 2011 by Dennis

Well today turned out to be an interesting day.   It started with wanting to go see Captain America.   I haven’t seen a movie in the theater since May when Thor came out.   So I met up with Magnus at noon and saw Captain America.  Right after that was over we got in the car and drove to the dollar theater (well $2).  Got to our seats just as the movie started after the previews, perfect timing.  This movie was X-Men First Class.  After that was over we left the theater, got in line and got tickets for Thor.   3 great Marvel superhero movies.  it was a quite relaxing day out of the heat.  It was a good thing Green Lantern wasn’t playing anywhere right now otherwise I probably would have seen that too.

The other thing that happened today was that I started a week long cleanse.   At the end of last week I watched “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”.  The documentary had a guy who lost a bunch of weight by doing a 60 day juice fast.   While I didn’t want to go to that extreme right now I am going to try this for this week.  Nothing but juice.  Mostly to try to cleanse/reboot my system.  I’m hoping that I can keep up with it.   At the start of today i was 270 pounds.   Being in the theater all day long helped with the cravings.  I do want something to eat, but I’m going to try get through this.    Hopefully by the end of it I will have lost some weight and have more energy.    It seems like the first 3 days are the roughest to get through.    I think I can get through Monday ok, but Tuesday I’m going to want taco’s and Wednesday I might want wings, and Thursday is Rio day.   It is going to be an interesting week.


Happy day

Warrior Dash Training

Posted in Warrior's Dash on May 10th, 2011 by Dennis

Trying to get ready for the Warrior’s Dash. This is going to be interesting, not sure how I thought it was a good idea. I ‘m still having trouble getting up in the morning to accomplish anything before work.

Starting Weight: 5/8/2011 – 271 lbs.
Current Weight: 5/10/2011 – 266.4 lbs.

That looks good, but no way that pace is keeping up. I tried to walk/run last night. did almost 4 miles in an hour. Decent walking pace, but no where near being able to run that length yet. I’m going to have to start uploading some progress pictures.



Semi-Giant Catan Board

Posted in Projects on May 9th, 2011 by Dennis

After Free Comic Book Day I decided that I was going to try to make a giant Settlers of Catan board for Park Ave Fest.   I wonder if 12″ hexes are going to be big enough.  Thats going to be around a 5 foot diameter board + the water on the outside.    That will be pretty fun.  Then have to make all the settlements, cities, and roads.   Keep tuned for progress and pictures.
