Bloom County

Many of you out there may not be fans Bloom County but Berkeley Breathed is showing right now why he is one of the very best. Over the past month or so, cold hearted Steve Dallas has been on a journey through lost love, a mid life crisis, star wars and depression. In the end, he shows us that there is more to life than getting ahead at work and buying “things”.


Today, I’m finally able to let the cat out of the bag about a side project that I have been working on. My fellow brother in song, Brent Bierstedt and I have been working over the past several months on a better way of accessing, ranking and organizing iPhone apps.

No matter how beautiful you are, you are not better than everyone else by removing the border or gloss. You are not special. You are not being clever.


I’ve finally given into the dark side. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it, but I figured it would give me a chance to reconnect with old friends. So after much reluctance, I have decided to take the Facebook leap. I’m already a LinkedIn member, but I figured that Facebook was a different audience and in these times, you can never have too many friends that may open a door for you if one should happen to close.
