Great Scott!

So if any of you out there are like me, you may be slightly obsessed with the technology that Robert Zemeckis promised us 2015 would hold in his 1989 sequel Back to the Future II: How Biff Got His Groove Back. You know the ideas…flying cars, pimp Nike’s that lace themselves, and the creme dela creme the Hoverboard. Well great news 2014, the Hoverboard may be closer to reality than we expected! There is a bad ass Kickstarter campaign out there by a company called Hendo that is actually developing the world’s first Hoverboard. The campaign is fully funded already, but still how bad ass would it be to actually have these in potential mass production? I say completely bad ass and I can’t wait.  The $10K price tag is a bit steep but as soon as Mattel can mass produce it, we will all be doing kick flips over the Hill Valley pond with Marty and the Doc.

There was some latin shit here once, but nobody uses that language now except the Pope…and I am no Pope. What I am is a student. Not a student in the literal sense, but someone who believes that you have to always be challenging yourself to learn. Not necessarily things we have learned from textbooks. My learning is more about putting myself in difficult situations to understand more about me and the world around me. It is the challenge that allows you to grow as a person. That is my philosophy. Some of the things that I will eventually get around to posting may focus on that, reflections on a life that has seen me through the rust belt to the new (and not so new) south and through a life abroad. However many of these posts will focus on the lighter things that interest me. My obsession with 80’s/90’s pop culture, my obsession with sports especially of the Cleveland and Ohio State variety, and maybe even my obsession with musical theater…who knows. Maybe somebody will read this, maybe they won’t…but that isn’t the point. The point is that if I find something interesting I will try to dissect it here, maybe not timely (I do have a day job) but eventually.
