The Graduate

Max graduated from kindergarten this week. Here's a few pictures from the little graduation ceremony they put on at Morrisville Elementary School.

Max says he "feels like a first grader" now and is excited about next year. Of course, no one has told him about "homework" yet so they may change when he tracks back in to his year-round program at the end of July.

Another 4 minutes of fame

Jarrett Campbell & Dean Linke

During halftime of last night's RailHawks v. Charleston Battery match, I was one of the halftime guests on the broadcast. Click here to listen to my interview with RailHawks play-by-play man Dean Linke (note, I'm the second interviewee in this segment).

Mr. Pushbutton

Yesterday at work, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of one of my co-workers with the Square D Company. Larry "Mr. Pushbutton" Sunday has been with our company 6 years longer than I've been alive! Talk about dedication. Check out this hilarious video shot "a few years ago" with Larry demonstrating just how tough Square D products can be.

I'm So Vain... probably think this post is about me.

Well, it is. Kind of.

Last Friday, my Carolina RailHawks played a match on Fox Soccer Channel. During the game, the commentator gave my supporters club, and me specifically, a shout out on national television. I guess you should subtract those 15 seconds from my 15 minutes.

Must See TV

Game shows and reality TV in the US just sucks in my opinion. I NEVER watch these programs. But if someone could come up with a truly novel idea, like this Japanese "human tetris" game show, I'd watch.

Mr. Wizard Dead at 89

It will probably come as no surprise to anyone that knows me that Mr. Wizard's World was one of my favorite shows on TV growing up in the 80s. I was sad to learn that Don "Mr. Wizard" Herbert passed away yesterday at the age of 89. However, I am happy to know that he will live forever on DVD. I can't wait to introduce Max to all these cool science experiments. They should be right up his alley.

Stone Mountain

I just realized I hadn't posted these pictures I took during our trip to Atlanta and Stone Mountain back during the first weekend in May.

Bob Dylan's Influence on Today's Music

I knew that Bob Dylan was a great songwriter, but I never really knew how influential he was on today's artists until I saw this short documentary:

BTW, I'm not sure whether or not we should accept his apology for the Macarena.
