An archive of stuff I’ve worked on.

My StatsRoyale.com Profile

First, my blood pressure is off-the-charts from playing too much Clash Royale (just like my other almost-40 year old friends). Plus, I’m not even doing that well! Check out this cool website, StatsRoyale.com. ? It summarizes all your Clash Royale statistics. I have about a 50/50 wins to losses ratio; to be real real, I have more losses than wins ?. I’m at 2415 trophies and hope I can achieve a stretch goal of 3000 by the end of the summer. Let’s see how my 9 year old is doing, here’s his stat below: […]

Hidden Side of Stephen and Stephen

I’ve been an avid fan ? of the Freakonomics books and podcast for many years now. And when I’m extremely interested in something, I rarely research the background of the authors, including bands for music ?, writers for tv/movies ?, etc. I tend to find my opinion skewed when I see them in the pop culture, the red carpet or what if they’re on the evening news involved in a Ponzi scheme. In the case of Freakonomics, I really enjoy it. A lot. Any chance I’m in the car, I listen to the podcast and most recently, I’ve been hooked on “tell me something I don’t know”. I love Freakonomics so much I don’t want to know anything about Stephen and Stephen. I don’t want to know what they look like. I don’t want to know if they have kids or are married. I don’t want to know if they like ice cream or if one of them is a vegetarian. But when I purchased their book Super Freakonomics, I did see a picture of their faces…darn. During my drive from Tucson to Los Angeles yesterday, I had the opportunity to listen to a ton of podcasts! Then I realized in a live audience […]

THD

I had a return I needed to make at The Home Depot so I headed over after I picked up the kids from school. As we got out of the car at Home Depot, my daughter asked, “What does THD stand for?” I said, “Hmm, I don’t know. Maybe ‘The Hungry Dog’?” She said, “No, it’s The Home Depot”. Doi. […]

Watermelon Store

So…I’m driving my kids to karate and my daughter looks out of the window, sees a strip mall with the sign “Watermart”, but she thought it  said “Watermelon”. She’s like “They have a watermelon store?! They must sell big watermelons, small ones, and yellow ones!”. Then my son chimes in and says “They probably sell watermelon dolls and a watermelon shaped car!” I said “It says Water Mart”. […]

Ironic

Rewind and rewatch. Okay! NOW I get – in a series of Gonzalez’s flashbacks, we learn that the reason for her being in prison is because of the following: She’s an immature high school student Due to reason 1, she wants money to buy shit and impress her BF. And she thinks her mom’s a loser b/c she’s a seamstress who makes knock-off designer dresses. Due to reason 2, she sells fake acid at school Due to reason 3, she ends up in Litchfield Correctional Back to the present day, the inmates are given a personality test of which 40 are chosen to get “upgraded” to new jobs that supposedly pay more than the standard 0.89 cents per hour. The job remains a mystery til the end of the episode.  Round the corner to the suspenseful conclusion of this episode, Gonzalez, is chosen as on of the “elite” 40; even though she didn’t even complete the assessment test. She gets on the list, heads over to her old job at the kitchen and tells her old buddies to fuck off and touts that’s she’s smarter than them. Way to burn bridges idiot! Finally, the elite 40 are escorted to the […]
