Has it really been since the LOST finale since I’ve posted?  Kinda rhetorical when I know that answer is YES!  My apologies right NOW…  This is gonna be kinda Stream O Conciousness since it’s late and I’ve been imbibing.

Trying to find a new place to exist.  Finally rolled Snake Eyes on neighbors here at our current abode.  Trust me, if it’s bad enough for ME to move then it’s way past ‘Normal Human Tolerance Level’!  2 more weeks o’ school for the kiddos.  Viktor has a new teacher next year and Alora is already onto the 2nd grade.  My the time does fly.  Alora has at least 3 more field trips before the end of the school year and she can’t wait for a single one of them.

I miss my pals.  Munkynutz here for a half a week was definately not long enough and John having a 7 to 4 ‘er when I don’t is, like, teasing me or something!  Jess was here and it was just like 15 years ago with the book readings, video watchings and game playings.  Good times indeed!  Vodka C*ck did rock it up on Memorial Day weekend though, that was fun times!

I liked the end of LOST…  of course I didn’t spend 6 years of my life following and dissecting the show.  I caught up via Netflix this spring while I folded laundry.  It rang true for me and originally I thought it was a ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ kinda deal.  After realizing that the last shot was a lingering Oceanic wreckage deal tacked on by ABC (and not of any significance, storywise) I’m even MORE O.K. with the finale!

Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 1 are down in the books for me.  Playing Assassin’s Creed 2 currently (soon as it’s done it’s Mass Effect 2) and hooked Munky on Trials HD for XboxLive.  Just ONE MORE TIME!!!!!

The only cooking I been doing is some BBQ chickens.  Made some ribs when the ‘Nutz was here but we ate at establishments more than we ate here.  But them Ribs Was GOOD!  Grillin’ the Chickenz this week along with a coupla New Yaaks!  God I hope we get this new place.

Whatta week or so!

Hey there everybody!

Man have we had some good times these last 10 days!  By us I mean the whole fam.  Munkynutz came to town for a job in Auburn WA and took a few full days to live it up like old times here in the household.  Made some really nice pork ribs (apple wood and mesquite) while Jesse was here and a steak salad with red pepper vin.!

Visited the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum (and hall of fame) with my brother of another mother.  Pics are available on our Farcebook pages.  Also spent a lot of time with the kiddos (Lacey fun fair, frisbee in the park and various other tendon damaging activities) Jess also took us to the Outback Steakhouse and it turns out Viktor likes the Bloomin’ Onion like a mutha!  But what we did the most was hang out ‘Old School’.  Vidya games, Vodka, PuroResu and musics!  It was a hot time in the old towne for many nights!

I’m kinda pissed.  Lost wraps up tomorrow night and I’ve gotta work like a dumbass.  Good news.  Hell’s Kitchen starts on June 1 this year.  Ramsay is AWESOME sauce!  Can’t wait.  Deadliest Catch has been pimp as hell this year too!

I hate my neighbors.  That is all!

L8 says N8!

This woulda been, like, 100X better...

Just a quick one

This here is to let Mr. Nutz know that…

IT IS ON! INDEED!

Possibly even On Like Donkey Kong!

Good times, good times.  Munkynutz came a callin’ on Wednesday which also happens to be Viktors birthday and spent an evening with us.  Quite the treat for us as we haven’t seen him in person for 6 years.  He brought the birthday boy a Sheriff Woody pull string doll and a noisy book.  Damn was he disappointed when he found out that noisy toys don’t phase me anymore!  Viktor also scored a Razor Scooter (and brainbucket) along with a shootin’ hoops game and fluff from my dad!

The kids had a blast.  Jess should be coming back next weekend to hang for the whole weekend with us.  That is gonna be hella good!  Also I got beaten at Street Fighter 4 by Mr. Nutz.  He beat me 4 times and is bragging it up over at the facebook.  What he neglects to mention is that i whupped him the other 12 times.  Sins of omission.  I guess that’s better than nocturnal emiss…  er, nevermind.

Rewatched ‘The People Under the Stairs’ since my last post (my recommendation is don’t bother) and I just watched ‘The Hitcher’ today and I do recommend watching that again!  Jennifer Jason Leigh was/is so hot.  It also stars Rutger Hauer before he became a running joke and even a hell of a performance by C. Thomas Howell.  Probly his best IMHO.  Or at least better than ‘Soul Man’.

At least LOST wasn’t a rerun this week and some serious things went down on/around the island.  I don’t wanna spoil it if you haven’t seen it, but if you haven’t then you MUST!  Also devoured Seasons 1,2 and 3 of Arrested Development (FOX TV) within the last 2 weeks.  It was sublime and should NOT be missed.  It truly does have something for everyone.  ‘cept stupid people.  Even then they prolly wouldn’t notice.  Now I’m back to watching FRINGE.  Boy that is some good TV too!

Long night, short post so I’ll just leave this with you…

Yin Yang Much?

Bless you Bless you INDEED!

Where to start?

As I had mentioned previously here, there are number of super cool things on the immediate horizon for us as a family.

But previously… in my life.  Alora and Lara went to the Pt. Defiance Zoo with Alora’s class last week.  Pretty sure it’s the first field trip or class activity that Lara has participated in this year ( I got to do the GingerBread house project and the car wash as well ) the whole class had a blast and they came home super hype.  Alora spent her time running away from the sharks and feeding the goats.  Also tonight LOST is a rerun.  How the hell does that work?  Making up for it by watching me some Season 1 Fringe while I type this.  Getting good!

New in this episode at the Casa del Putnam!  MunkyNutz is coming to town!  Whoo0!  Haven’t seen my man Jess in person for around six years but he coming to the Great Northwest on work and is gonna spend a weekend with the fam and myself in May.  SuperHype Yeah Boi!  Here’s the kinda guy MN is…  he found out that Super Street Fighter 4 dropped today and he went to pick up a copy just so he could get spanked by yours truly.  Also I grokked that he was starting out in BorderLands tonight and I can’t wait to coop some of THAT with my man Nutz.  Well not like that you know!

Also in the immediate future, my mom is coming to visit us for a week or so at the end of June (right after school lets out).  She’ll be meeting her grandchildren in person for the first time and my wife too, come to think of it.  Lara’s already planning State Park days and a trip to the Pacific Ocean.  I’m sure there will be plenty to do.

The van is working out splendidly so far and isn’t too terrible on MPG (miles per gallon) so I’m happy so far.  Put my OLD ASS XPLOD stereo in it.  Gots me some tunes.

Also concerning musics.  I’m going to the ‘RockStar Metal Mayhem Festival’ at White River Ampitheater with a fella named Steve who is a Midwest transplant (such as myself).  He’s the nephew of an architect I know who was raised in Michigan and frequents TSRL (where I work).  Actually Corey (Steve’s uncle) helped design the Grand Traverse Mall!  Anyhow… KORN, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God and other metal goodies await my attendance!  Sweet!

Enough rambling for now just wanted put something out there…  Gamertag – UtraViolent N8 …  Super Street Fighter 4 ya’ll!

Also

Schindler's Lift

Happy Friday Night!

BBQ fell through and I had to crisp up those tasty chicken and pigs myself.  Mesquite and flamage equal tasty dinners for the family!

Lots of cool stuff the last 2 weeks so I’ll just start with last weeks carwash that Alora and her classmates held to raise funds for a trip to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma.  I stopped by and paid $15 to get 3/5ths of my van washed (kind of) as well as joining in to wash cars for about an hour.  Oh yeah and get pictures, here are a few:

Alora earns a trip to the zoo

Along with her classmates!

Sorry I don’t have any pictures of ME washing cars because noone else had brought any cameras.  The pictures I use for this blog are taken with my cell camera but I think they work to get the moment across and I also don’t have to worry wrecking a more expensive digital camera.

Also Peggy M. has gotten me hooked on:

Is this the NEW X-Files? We'll see...

I’m still in season One but it gives me something to watch between episodes of LOST this season.  MunkyNutz keeps going on about Leverage so maybe afterward I’ll check it out.  Super Street Fighter 4 comes out Tuesday that’ll be fun!

Later Gator.

Another day, another pic…

Had a nice quiet morning after gettin the kids on the bus.  Watched a coupla movies, neither worth commenting on, and scrubbed some dishes and washed the whites.  Awesome weather we’ve been having here led to me taking Alora out to get more practice on her scooter.  Someone helped her up and she helped them up.  Good social interaction I think.  We had tacos for dinner since neither Lara or myself were in the mood for a long and involved dinner time strategy.  Kiddos loved it!  Alora played some Mini Golf on the Wii and Viktor jumped… and jumped.

This shelf is worth more than most of my paychecks

The reason why (in case you AREN’T a gamer) are the Sega Saturn games.  Honestly, this is just a cool shot of my bamboo plant and collectible games.  MunkyNutz and I agree, if you are a gamer you HAVE to play Fallout 3.  Actually I still haven’t finished all the additional content and am waiting for the right time to do so!

Tomorrow Vik and I get to hang out for most of the day.  It should be good times!  April 27th = Greedy and me getting it on with Super Street Fighter 4!  Can’t wait!

Good night and good health.

Just got in the door from work and it was the epitomy of ‘meh’.  No tumbleweeds but I wasn’t breaking a sweat either.  Made some cash and had some fun.  Food was good (as it always is) and peoples barometers were pleasant but just not enough of them coming in.

One of my coworkers compadres recommended a movie called ’44 Inch Chest’ to me tonight and I think I’ll check it out soon.  Listening to Cage the Elephant right about now, heard ’em on the radio and during the beginning of Borderlands and had to have the album, it’s almost folk rock and hip hop.  I like it.

MunkyNutz called today and we chatted about a number of things including, and not limited to, Alpha Protocol, Obsidian Entertainment, facepunching, pre and post Joey Anthrax, bigger in Texas and professional gaming.  Also Greedy McNasty.  Plus Vegas.  The Hangover is such an amusing film that we both watch it frequently but the only question I’ve not seen answered is ‘Where the Hell did the chickens come from?’.  If you have the answer please feel free to pass it along.

Here is a link: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/four-bright-screwattack/62941 .  Please watch it as it is awesome.

That is all Geritol.  See you soon!

Well Geocities closed down and deleted all their (mine) content over last summer so my domain name has been languishing in broken hell.  So I saw that WordPress was good enough for vern ( www.outlawvern.com ) so I figure I’ll give it a whirl too!

Playing Mass Effect (1) and just got DJ Hero in the mail today (the kids love it).

Listening to the new Gorillaz and Cage the Elephant as well as the ol’ standbys!  Hoping to visit with my local friends soon and hearing a lotta chatter from the monkeynutz lately.  I rather enjoy our little chats.

Don’t bother reading/buying the Sixth Hitchhikers book.  No really Trust me On this One!  Also on the reading tip…  Why can’t Stephen King write a decent ending anymore?  I’m not gonna spoil Under the Dome for you but if you like the book at all then stop at least a hundred pages from the end and make up your own conclusion.   It’ll have to be at least twice as good as the real resolution.  And this coming from a King fan!
