Blogging with 9 fingers

Ok, I got what I deserved. I was trying to show off a bit…some clever onion cutting skills to some friends I had over for dinner last night and boom, there went a chunk of finger. I just shake my head because it was totally my fault. Not paying attention. It was my index finger (as highlighted in the pic)

So it has made typing interesting at the very least. And yes mother, I could have gone to the hospital…but I didn’t really see the point. The chunk of finger was gone. There was nothing they could really “stich” back together. And I had dinner guests showing up. I mean, 3 hours in the emergency room for fancy band aids vs. a nice Rioja I had just opened? I think we all would agree I made the right decision.

The blog has been a bit messy lately. I have smiplified things. Matt Dickman was passing through Minneapolis earlier this week and we both shared similar eye rolling to certain areas of social media land. In doing so, I realized that while yes, my blog is my new resume – my blog is also me. Moving forward, this is going to be a mix bag of thinking+life.

Personal project – 29 days project blog

Quick note, I use this blog for mainly professional-ish related content. But I’ve started a new project for February that is a bit more personal.

The 29 Days Project is a blog I created to try and do or post something interesting everyday for the month of February. I’m mainly focusing myself on doing/trying new things that I’ve never done before in the twin cities. I did this for two reasons 1) force me to get out there during the main winter blues month 2) see more of the city I live in.

So, check it out for a bit of my personal life.

Enjoying the holidays (and a new blog theme)

Decided to give the blog a fresh coat for 2008. I like what I’ve got going so far, but think I’m going to have to find a CSS jockey to help me add a 4th column for content that I publish (slideshare, youtubes, utterz, etc). So, anyone know anything about CSS coding that takes payment in beer?

Had a good holiday with the family. The pace on the farm always seems to reboot my system giving me time to slow down and reflect on everything 2007 was. I’ll be posting my overall 2007 -> thoughts soon. Until then, enjoy some pictures from Sawyer Farm.

3 groovy tunes…

Update: something is going haywire with posting YouTube…I’ll fix it in a bit

I’ve been meaning to mix it up around here…these tunes are most excellent, maybe I should release a mix for you all. Till I do you can find the tunes on hypemachine

This song is just seductive enough…

Sorry for making you jump, but apparently someone doesn’t understand that it is a GOOD idea to embed. Yes, I’ve always dug Lily Allen.

And this song just puts a smile on my face, makes me want to dance just a little…

2 other tunes/mp3 blogs I highly suggest you check out this evening –


frYars on Good Weather for an Airstrike


Sidewalk on indiechristoph
