Windy Day For A Race

It’s very windy here at Vinoy Park. If it stays this windy I don’t know if they’ll do the swim. It might become too copy. It will make the bike suck for sure!

St. Anthony’s Triathlon

Beyerdynamic Headphones

I’ve come up on a small work problem. I’ve broken my wonderful Beyerdynamic DT-660 headphones. They’ve made a great entry into the world of audiophile grade listening equipment. The problem that I’ve run into is that their build quality just isn’t up to the task of supporting someone who uses their headphones at work. It’s not because the environment is abusive to headphones. Well, not in a manner that I thought of when I made the purchase. The problem I ran into is that through the repetitive on and off of the headphones from my head during the normal course … Continue reading

Watching Skyfall

I love me some bond. After Quantum of Solice I had to see Skyfall. Just didn’t get to watch it in theaters. Follow along as I drink martinis and watch the movie…

First Martini

Starting in Shanghai…

Baddie with crazy gun…

Cool toy, but now you’re going to get dropped off the side of the building.

Ok, M. He. Is. Terminated.

It’s YouTube M; File A DMCA Notice

They’ll take down anything!

Now I want a straight edge razor…

Straight Razors ARE EXPENSIVE!

I like this one. Wouldn’t mind this either.

Dude Gonna Get Bit By A Lizard

Oh wait, he’s just going to get eaten by that lizard.

Second Martini

Oh man, I hope this doesn’t turn out like Swordfish.


I’d gladly drink it and be OK with dying. Oh wait…


He’s Going To Use Those Teeth

To get out of his cell. Yes, leave him with that one inept guard…


“He’s using a polymorphic engine…” “It’s like a Rubics cube that is fighting back…” Just, just stop!

They Should Have Casted Sr. Anthony Hopkins For the Bad Guy

He would’ve made it a bit more creepy-ier.

“Health and safety. Carry on…”

If bond just fired his PPK into the air once. Then people would get the hell out’a the way.

I Admire Villians…

They have everything down to the minute planned 20 years into the future.

Ok, so now shoot up everything as a policeman…


WITH AN EJECTOR SEAT! Oh, ya drink that Heineken.

Buggered. I like that term. Moving that to my daily vernacular.

Is that Patrick Stuart’s house? (sorry, Sr. Patrick Stuart…)

Why Would You Go For The House? Take THE CAR!

If M is going to retire I want to suggest that Maggie Smith take her place.


You assholes. At least he got the helio.

Third Martini

Oh noes, don’t do that Mr. Kincade.


Hi. I’m Bond. Of course, we all knew that would happen.

Well. I didn’t Expect M to Die…


Ms. Moneypenny!

She shot Bond!!!

SO. That’s how it ends. Damn…

Quantum is better than Casino Royal. This is worst than them both. I pray, pray, that Danial does another Bond. I really had hoped that this would play into the Quantum saga. The resolution at the end of this movie isn’t that great. When M came on as head of MI6 the cannon was that she inherited it from a man that was like that of character who became the head of MI6 at the end of this flick.

Perhaps this is saying that Bond is cyclical. That in the end the character never dies; just new views on his missions are brought to life. Meh. Wasn’t impressed and glad I didn’t see this one in the theater.

Daniel Craig

I don’t care how much Daniel Craig get’s messed up at the beginning of Skyfall, I’d trade most anything for a body like that. God I love to be able to wear a suit like that!

RC Helicopters

TREX 450 Clone

People say that if you get a boat it’s like throwing money into a hole in the water. Others point out that if you have a pool it’s like having a concrete pond into which you throw all of your money. RC modelers basically throw their money into the air and it never comes back. What Goes Up… So it all started when I was about 5… Well, my dad bought a MiniBoy RC helicopter when I was a kid. I remember it being awesome. It actually looks surprising a lot like this one: Years later I got him a … Continue reading

Triathlon Photography

There is something I love about time trial bikes. The sweet sweet lines. The knowledge of all the engineering work that has gone into making them. They just look so damn cool. I created a little gallery of pictures of some of my favorites that I’ve taken over the years. [AFG_gallery id=’1′] These pictures just represent a small amount of what I’ve taken in terms of sports photography. I’m kind of in a photography (and hobby) rut at the moment. I have broken some of my gear and need to enhance my kit some more. Hopefully soon I’ll be able … Continue reading

Downton Abbey Season Finale

After a long Sunday it’s time for Downton. Already watching the two hour episode from last week. Tune in to your local PBS station to catch the season finale!
