Excited about getting an iPad,
I forgot about my pets
and if they would enjoy it too.
The dog loves to jump in my lap
as I’m running from dinosaurs,
or jamming in a one man band,
or watching videos about much cuter dogs.
He craves the attention
this lifeless and wagless thing achieves.
My cat ignored it, until one day,
Nicole googled “apps for cats.”
He pawed at a little red ball darting
across the infinite blackness.
I wonder what a feline astronaut would see
perched at the window of a rocketship,
and whether he would wonder at how humans
spend more and more money on
what are poor substitutes for
the scurrying mouse, the tossed sock,
the vacant corner of a midnight room.
It’s Tuesday, and it’s a new media day. New releases from Ra Ra Riot and Sufjan Stevens (and the requisite price drops for early adopters), and also the release of the FINAL TWELVE MINUTES OF LOST! Check it out!
Yes, that’s Clint Howard. Brother of actor/director Ron Howard and child actor from the original Star Trek. Not to mention one of the most prolific tertiary actors of our time. I love the references to the new Star Trek movie. Especially given that the three creators of the show wrote and directed the new Star Trek movie.
A week ago I was married. It was possibly the greatest day of my life, and I had a blast seeing all the smiling faces of these people who love us (or just like us, that’s cool too). Here’s a small taste of the proceedings, from the first dance:
Believe it or not, search for Lawless Duel on the Googlemeister and that video is the no. 1 hit! Thanks to everybody who made it, and special thanks to everybody who posted their pictures on Facebook. It’s been a blast re-living those memories with you.
I never thought I could love Nicole more than I already did, but one week into the marriage and I’m glad to say I was wrong.
Also, today I submitted my business license for Penciled In Designs! I’m now legitimate business!
