Punkslam Feature

Excellently filmed spot by the Press Democrat, filled with great moments from the last Punkslam show, including Drake Frost hitting the Icebreaker on Mike Rayne to become the new Number One Contender for the Punkslam Title!

Sojourn: Connections

From the official press release (that is, the 100 postcards we had printed):

Dogma, doctrine and theology are great ways of defining God, but they don't always help us to understand Him. Sometimes we need something a little less technical to help us see the God behind the words. Can you picture God or merely define Him?

For the next 5 weeks of Sojourn we're gonna be looking at life with God through the lens of "connection." Join us for a fresh perspective on life, God and how it all comes together.

Sundays, from 6-7 in the evening. I'm usually in with the kids, roughousing and stuff, but that's not always the case. Let me know if there's a night you guys are interested in coming, and I can find a replacement for the evening. Or, you could just come check it out and catch me up on the lesson afterwards. Either way, I'd love to see you down there. In the meantime, check out some of the messages on the MySpace site. They're awesome.

Attention all unemployed friends!

CalPERS is hiring entry level positions! Go here for more details on the open exam. This is the position I'm in. Pay starts at $2,205 (plus 3.4% raise that all state employees get next month), full benefits, vacation, sick leave, plus pay for all the goofy state holidays like Ceasar Chavez day. It's real easy work and you should all take the test so you'll be eligible.

The state fair is here. Don't think i didn't notice.
Now, i'm tired of pussyfooting around scheduling, so you all have one of the following options, in order of desirability:

1) Post your schedule here and we'll all figure out a lovely evening that works for everyone.

2) Figure whatever happens, happens, and risk getting stuck at work or tacos or whatever the evening that Lenny, Cody and i decide we're going, and wrangle anyone who's ready at the moment.

if those options sound eerily familiar, you should think about option one.

Come on, another game list?

Oh, yes. This a is list of published by the Independent Gaming Source, which holds up 50 examples of great indie gaming. All are cheap. Some are free.

Nick with recognize Gish. Cody will be glad to know that the makers of Stair Dismount have made Truck Dismount. Most everyone will recognize Cave Story, Flow, Orsinal, Sam n' Max, and Alien Hominid.

And Liam... there's a little game called Death Worm.

I'll be running through some of the free games on this list in the near future. Anything that stands out, I'll note in the comments of this post.

No Fetus Can Beat Us!!

Hey Adrienne, i believe it's your turn to step up to the plate as Mayor for the next session of KAMB!, what does everyone's schedules look like so we can figure out an awesome time to do this? i believe Lenny comes back in town either tomorrow or the day after, but seriously, i think he'd be thrilled to find out that we actually managed to do something together that didn't involve him.
