Toil Nor Spin

I've enjoyed good weather these past few days. Jess and I are currently in Stow, MA visiting her parents. We visited New York City for a few days before we got here. Good times.

Although I much enjoy vacations like these, I feel as if I don't really absorb them. When I'm on vacation, it's like my job and normal routine cease to exist, but not in a comforting way. I don't recline and say "Awe, this feels so good, because I'm usually at work right now."

It's like work never existed. It doesn't even surprise me.

Then when I return to my job, it's as if my vacation was a dream.

What's the deal?

I think part(most) of the dissatisfaction arises from the fact that my idea of vacation is based on fantasy. This vacation ideology is probably just a mash-up of all the summer vacation films I saw in the '80s and early '90s.

The funniest part is that this has been a great vacation: I've spent time with friends and family that I missed greatly, spent hours in the sun, swam in a bay alone during a thunderstorm, recorded audio and video of bees, stayed in NYC for free, etc.

I take it for granted so easily. Then I over-think it and get myself down for it not feeling like the movies. What a bunch of bullshit.

Be careful not to compare your vacations (and life!) to the movies. It feels like a subtle influence, but it can run very deep in your ideas.

Kid Show, Big and Beautiful

So a year or two ago, I uploaded Kid Show to youtube and it looked like a piece of crap. I patiently waited for compression qualities to improve on video portals like youtube, and the waiting has finally paid off, thanks to You can now watch Kid Show, BIG, and CLEAN, in STEREO (ooooo) on So for those of you who always watched the tiny, crappy version on my website, this should be a treat for you.

Also, I've been very inspired by The Mighty Boosh. If you've never heard of it, watch some clips on youtube. It's a silly, British, surrealistic, comedy show.
