Fred sees Spider-man 3

As a Spider-fan, there was only requirement of me this weekend… See Spider-man 3. There’s going to be a lot of people who won’t love this movie– but I won’t be one of them. Was it my favorite of the three? No, not at all… but it was better than 95% of the movies I’ve seen and if they make a forth, I’ll see that opening weekend as well....

Spider-man 3 opens… today!

Well, I missed the midnight showing… but with fucking Gwen Stacy listed as a character there’s no way in hell I’m missing this movie’s opening weekend. 🙂 So in a comic book moment, here’s my favorite line from Kill Bill: An essential characteristic of the superhero mythology is, there’s the superhero, and there’s the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker. When he wakes up in the morning, he’s Peter Parker....

The ugliest shoes I've ever known

I’ve been seeing these ugly ass shoes more and more lately. At first I didn’t even know how to describe them-they looked like 20% oompa loompa, 30% dutch boy, and 50% day glow 80’s chic. I couldn’t understand why these ugly, ugly, ugly, and dare I say ugly shoes were becoming popular. On Easter, as the token Old school member, my good friends had a set for everyone in the family… Mom, Dad, and the girls....

So horrible

So after Forrest passed I wanted to start a Foundation… basically something that would try to raise money for dog charities such as Malinois Rescue, etc. I even registered a couple domain names. Anyway… the accountant was pretty adamant (the word, not the singer… and I’m just too lazy to check my spelling right now) that I shouldn’t go this route. He advised that I would spend more in accounting fees for a non-profit than would be worth it, and I’d be better off donating money on my own directly....

Go Gators!

How awesome is a repeat of Basketball and during the off-season a championship in Football? I think my degree just increased in value. 🙂

A month? Really?

Funny how time “flies” when you’re working all the time. I was doing so well with updaing these, too. Let’s see… what’s happened in the last 30 days? Not much… A LOT of work… New highway bars on the bike… and that’s pretty much it. I installed the Highway Bars on the bike for my upcoming Fort Lauderdale run… and they’re fantastic. I rode down to Ocala and back taking a detour at the Lake to say hello to the Criminology crew....

To think I did all that

We know that Sinatra— hell, the whole Rat Pack— put’s me in a good mood. Why? Who fucking knows; but that’s neither here nor there. A while ago I stumbled on Sirius Satellite Radio, thinking it would make the trip to Fort Lauderdale go nicely. After all, how many years can you listen to Jimmy’s box set? — Start Digression — I bought my first brand new vehicle in 94. A Ford Ranger (named Bubba, Forrest’s black friend) that was everything I dreamed of—and more....

Rothchilde en Tubo

I love cigars. Love them. Love them. I’m now making sure I enjoy cigars more often—the only problem being the local stores in Gainesville charge through the ass for the simple pleasure of a good cigar. Take for example one of my absolute favorite cigars, Romeo y Julieta’s Rothchilde en Tubo. I love this cigar, and a year ago could get one for under 5 bucks. Today at Modern Age, the price was $6....

Fred sees Bridge to Terabithia

Several months ago, my beautiful, tooth-pick of a goddaughter told me her class was reading Bridge to Terabithia. Instantly, I flashbacked to Mrs. Krueger’s 4th grade class and what great books we read that year. Without a doubt, Mrs. Krueger is/was my favorite Elementary School teacher. She really inspired us to read, which unfortunately is something I lost interest in years later. That being said, she also had us read Bridge to Terabithia— which is still, to this day, one of my favorite books....
