Albie on the pope quotes hoax… I was amazed to read the quotes and thought it was amazing that such a big religious leader was speaking with logic and love, I thought it was unlikely for this to happen in my lifetime, but I took into account the whole Pat Robertson statements on dinosaurs being real and and the earth being more than six thousand years old, so I bought it totally and was planing to get a “Humanist for Pope Frances” T-shirt. But alas it is all untrue. Here’s hoping maybe one day…
There is work, there is family, there is sleeping, eating, mating and a lot of silence. If not for a good book, TV show, play or movie we would only know about the five miles or so around us. It would be a very limited and boring life. I have no idea what that would be like because I grew up in the age of television and movies. It is my understanding that past generations That did not have modern conveniences and forms of entertainment and very rough lives. For me television takes me so many places I couldn’t go in real life with the amazing race I travel around the world with science-fiction programs I travel into the future and onto distant worlds and I experience more people and characters and situations and I ever couldn’t real-life. To me it expands one’s experiences in life why limit ourselves to only a 5 mile radius? What is wrong with living 1000 lifetimes in the time it only takes us to live one? When I was a child I was a little girl on a prairie when I was a tween was a doctor when I was a teenager I was on the Starship Enterprise in the 24th century when I was young adult I went to college and New York University. I started in premed but then I switch my major to art I couldn’t decide between Ben or Nole, so I picked both one died, I time traveled it was confusing but I experienced it. After college I was a lawyer in Boston I worked with my ex and saw a computer-generated dancing baby all the time, met Bon Jovi had a good life. Then during the plane trip from Australia to LA I crash landed on the island and all kinds of weird stuff happened, this guy named Al who owned a diner showed me that he had a doorway to the past is dry storage I went back, saved Kennedy also other people messed up the timeline but fixed it. I could go on and on but the point is a lot more stuff happened to me watching television reading books and what would ever happen to me if I stayed in an empty room for 70 years or so. Is that truly a bad thing?
Had a good day today. We got Renny’s gifts wrapped and the part for her crib to convert it into a toddler bed came today, so we got it put together today, then we went to Heather’s grandma’s new place to help her move in along with heather’s uncles. Then we took them to their hotel. It was nice to see everybody again
Life is hard sometimes. With the full knowledge that most people’s lives are worse, no AC, no shoes, guns, etc. Life is not always roses. My favorite days now are Monday and Tuesday when I get to spend the whole day with my daughter Serenity. Wednesdays can be good if I’m not in trouble for something. Between Thursday and Sunday I work a maximum of 21 hours at my day job, needless to say i don’t make so much money there, It was OK for a while because I made good money at my night job, but then my hours/pay got cut in half there too. It makes me “Super Blue” as stated by one of my colleagues, and not any cool blue, like Cerulean or TARDIS blue, Just sad. This makes home life hard. We recently moved in with my mother to help her with her bills, we are paying the bills while she is paying the mortgage. This will help her financially, however it will make our bills slightly more as we still have to pay our mortgage and we didn’t have cable before. I basically have more outgo than income. My wife works for a good company so she isn’t being wal-marted like I am at Perkins. On a Busy week my wife works 40 hours, on a slow week my wife works 40 hours, I’m lucky to do 25 between my two jobs. We cant or wont get childcare so I can’t go to work in the morning until Heather gets home, and the longest I can work at my job is maybe 5 hours on a good day. So you can see where the tension is coming from. On the plus side, my day job has been very understanding with my schedule due to being a daddy. I’m hoping my night job will take off and I will be able to make a good income again, until then, I’m just that guy who doesn’t make enough money or work enough hours. I enjoy every minute with serenity, She is the apple of my eye, and my princess.
I just had an amazing conversation with Holly Fields, Jill from “Camikazi Kid”. She is so nice and had a lot of great stories about her time filming Quantum Leap. Her interview will be included in our next episode of The Quantum Leap Podcast 009 “Honeymoon Express” which hopefully will be released in time for Friday The 13th…
There are around 97 missing episodes of Doctor Who from the first years of Doctor Who how were destroyed or recorded over or wiped for economical and space-saving reasons. This was a horrible decision that was made back then but they could not have known how valuable and important these would be to future generations and history. A few recently have turned up and now they’re on iTunes but the vast majority are still missing. It is time we get serious to find these episodes of Doctor Who somewhere somehow. If tapes do exist that were wiped or recorded over I hypothesize it is possible by very carefully reading the magnetic patterns on the tapes and using digital technology and advanced programs possibly already made for data recovery for hard drives and flash disks. The computer can tell what was recorded on the tape before the current video on there by comparing the video data with the degree of magnetism and outputting the difference and interpolating the rest, maybe enough to get at least a ghost image for reference that can be helped out with CG. Failing that method from working the television signals are still flying through space as you read this. We must come together as a planet and put aside our differences in order to develop a way to read those signals that left our planet so long ago. They are at this point only about 50 light years away and we might be able to develop a probe that can go into interstellar space and detect the signals perhaps being bounced off of some object about 25 ly away. These episodes will return to the human race one day it’s just a question of when and if it will be in our own lifetime which is most important. Between Scotland Yard the SETI program Bill Nye we should be able to accomplish this. After violence and world hunger this is one of the most pressing issues of the day. If the right people have the right motivation they can accomplish anything if you in anyway have the ability to help this project contact me.
Having a hard time right now. When you realize that there are more days behind you than ahead of you and you still haven’t found your nitch in life and you may never. I wonder what it’s all for anyway. Serenity makes me happy, but it makes me sad that I’m not a better provider for her. I’m really lucky that her mom has a good job and works really hard to make up for me.
