The Top Benefits of Google Fiber


Excitement around the Triangle is palatable. This is one improvement that even our embarrassingly regressive politicians won't be able to exploit or undermine. Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel-Hill are on the vanguard of a nationwide change. Not quite as early as the lucky folks of Kansas City, but on the second wave nonetheless. As Google's infrastructure begins to take form, it's a great opportunity for residents to do a little spring cleaning and become familiar with all the benefits that Google Fiber allows and the competitive advantages it will bring to our region.

Hunting the Pea Island Outer Banks Coast Guard Station


After spending the week in a tiny beach town called Duck, Kaeli and I decided to adventure out on the fourth to find some incredible ruins I'd stumbled on a few months back. A friend of mine from college had posted an article on Facebook under the title "The 11 Strangest Abandoned Places in North Carolina" [1]. After falling for the obvious click bait, I found a gem which is never seen before - an Outer Banks building just drowning in sand. Sand so high you needed to dig like a dog on a fence to pass through the doorways.…

New Favorite Thing… Smart Car Body Kits


It’s not a Micro-Machine. It’s not a Golf Cart w/ a grill. It’s a Smart Car… With a Body Kit - and it's kind of amazing. Smart Car Body Kits are clever way to make those eco-friendly cars (that we all love so much) look just a little bit cooler. The upside of smart cars is obvioous, but the drawbacks have always been there just inder the surface. The largest hinderance to the growth of their popularity is largely asthetic and a few killer body kits might just be the solution. Grey Porche Smart Car Body KitsYellow…

Dear America – Letters to America


Like a lot of people who work remotely, I keep the news on in the background when working most of the time. Although the freedom is always appreciated, by the end of the day I often find myself making a fair amount of snarky comments towards the tv. Since that really doesn't accomplish much, I think I'll start making “Dear America” pictures when I get annoyed with the news. This may not achieve much more, but I think it's a healthier way to vent my frustration at the crazy path the masses seem to take sometimes. I’ll be sure…

Random Awesome Pictures


I keep getting random awesome pictures sent to me from my friends and folks. I figured it’s best not to be greedy, so I figured I should share some of them. I’ll periodically post a few updates and keep them updated everytime I get a chance to backup the old iPhone. Feel free to share, just give credit to the originator of the random awesomeness. I'll include a couple of links at the bottom to cite my sources. Boylan Bridge - Raleigh, NC La Strange - Hilarious Lead Guitarist GR Store - Kozyndan Kozyroom - Kozyndan USA Chan…

Fred Rogers is an American Hero


When I was growing up I could only really remember three people who seemed at peace. Bob Ross and Shel Silverstein certainly brought there own talents to the table, but the one guy who always just seemed like a normal happy person was Fred Rogers (aka Mr Rogers). A childhood hero that spoke with absolute authenticity. If he were my preacher I would probably still go to church every Sunday. The other great aspect of Fred Rogers was his passive stance on violence. Like every other American child, I read plenty of stories about having a pacifist approach (…mostly Ghandi…
