Trace Evidence

Our friends on UFO hunters love to talk about "trace evidence" to prove the existence of UFO's and other unexplained phenomena. Makes sense coming from a culture that is fraught with scientists and their beloved scientific method. Well man of science, here is some trace evidence for you:

Oh that's is just a spider bite. Or is it evidence of an alien abduction? That is my right arm you are looking at and that is most likely a star map given to me for future reference. It is the only thing that makes sense.

Back in the Saddle

Hello friends -

Sorry for the absence. Things happen and well...let's face it. I just am not the blogging type. I don't really like exposing my feelings to the world always. But hey...there are other things I like to expose like my silly skin colored swim shorts (which gained me a fan base while in Havasupai over the summer).

This summer was a summer of many great achievements. However the greatest achievement was the actualization of my love for the paranormal. I have always loved aliens, science fiction (which dirty rumor has it is often science fact!), bigfoot, and the like. One lonely stormy Friday night in May I was home alone since my friends all left on a trip to Zion National Park without me (I couldn't go because I had a mass amount of homework for my final college course and I had recently had surgery and was in NO shape to hike). I was supposed to working on a massive research paper on the political power of religious leaders. However, my research led me elsewhere. I spent the evening researching Bigfoot and aliens. I slept with the lights on that night.

A great discovery indeed. It led to to places like Mel's hole and Skinwalker ranch amongst other adventures this summer. Here is Nate and I at the east entrance of Skinwalker Ranch:

We didn't get to spend enough time to do any investigating and such. But we did hear a strange metallic crunching and clanging on the ranch. Oddly enough in the book "Hunt for the Skinwalker" by Colm Keller and George Knapp, the author's do reference a strange metallic sound as one of the unexplained phenomena of the ranch. Fascinating.

While I have not made dedicated excursions to seek out the paranormal, these trips are pending. Next up:

Destination: Signal Peak in the Pine Valley Mountains in southern Utah
Wanted for: Government harboring of nephilim, underground military base, aliens, and general paranormal mischeif
When: October 3-4, 2009

To my biggest fans Scott Meyer and Justin Grundy and Catherine Eliason:

Please help me update this blog. Lots happens in my life but I don't really think to write. Scoot can I outsource my brain, experiences, and typing to you?

Explosions in my Brain

The more I think about it, the more I am moved by the Explosions in the Sky show I went to last night. It was in many ways a very simple and powerful expression of I am not really sure what. All I know is that as I took everything in I mused about how 4 dudes with normal instruments (normal in that there weren't any keyboards, apple computers, synthesizers, or the like - just 2 guitars, a bass, and a simple drum set) could make me feel they way I was feeling at that moment. And here I am 24 hours later more affected now than I was during the show. How does it happen? I do not know, but I am eternally grateful for it...really.

It is experiences such as this that cause me to really think about the things that are really important in life. It is strange that music can do that. I think I may have lost sight of what is important in some ways. I don't know. I think that because of the rapid change I have experienced lately it has left me...well, again I don't know. And I don't think I am really ready to explain it because I just don't know. Anyways, I am going to work on getting a clip up from the show.


for the sake of getting started again, here is an update:

now orange belt
i am competing in a tournament this weekend
i will be in 3 events (self defense, sparring, and #1 kata)

i saw explosions in the sky tonight and it ranks in the best shows that i have ever seen. in fact, maybe i can put together a rough list of the best shows i have ever seen:

1. Mogwai (5/2006)
2. Sigur Ros (10/2005, 5/2006)
3. Cave In (6/2000, 2001, 11/2006)

OK this is hard...those 3 rank so close together that its really hard for me to rank them.

4.Explosions in the Sky (3/2008)
5. Death Cab For Cutie (3/2004)

Alright I dont know if that is completely accurate. I will have to think about it more.

6. A Silver Mt Zion (8/2006)

Boring post, but thats that. Life is great. This is the happiest I have been in ages. Life is so funny sometimes...and right now I really have no idea where it is taking me. I like that.
