There’s an interesting article over at latimes.com about poverty shifting from cities to the suburbs.
It makes me wonder what needs to change about current service models.

So, Erin is out of town for a few days…
This will be my first time alone with Michael over-night.
Honestly, I’m a little scared about how this will go.
Our first morning went really well. Granted, Erin fed the baby and put him back to sleep around 5AM before she left for her trip. But, even still, I was able to shower, get dressed, and have a little coffee while the baby slept. He got up around 6:15. We rocked for a bit, put on a fresh diaper and hung out until Aunt Erin arrived at 7AM.
Pretty much a perfect morning.
Tonight will be the true test.

My wife would tell you that Jurassic Park is my all-time favorite movie.
I’m not sure I agree with that, but it doesn’t help my cause that I saw it in IMAX 3D last weekend. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
I was impressed to see that most of the film and special effects hold up, even by today’s standards. There are a few exceptions, but most of the movie is as terrifying as it was the first time I saw it in the theater at 12 years old. The part that struck me as particularly terrifying this time around was the scene where the T-Rex attacked the kids in the Explorer, breaking through the glass roof. The T-Rex in the rain, in the dark… it looked so good. So scary.
It amazed me that a movie can still be terrifying 20 years later, after hundreds of viewings at home. I guess good movies hold up.

I like horror movies maybe a little more than the average person but this might be a little too much.
As demented as it sounds, watching someone’s fictional horror on screen is ok with me. The moment I have to experience it first person is when it’s gone too far. Do not sign me up for this camping trip.

Meet my new guitar.
Isn’t it beautiful?
It’s a Taylor GS Mini. I purchased it on Craigslist from a guy who won it in a photo contest for Taylor.
For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted a Taylor guitar, and I’m so excited to finally have one.
Over the past month I’ve been cleaning out my closet and selling stuff to raise the money for it. I even parted ways with two of my guitars.
You might wonder why I would want a mini guitar. Part of what excited me most about the GS Mini was its small size. At 7/8 scale, it’s a great size for sitting on the couch. Gone are my dreams of being a rock star, so a full sized guitar wasn’t necessary.
Anyway, I’m really excited about it. If you can’t tell.
