Google Reader and Zend_Http_Client Saves Time

I’ve been working a lot on Florida Death Metal lately. Part of that means that I need to know news, as it happens, from a lot of different sources. That can be difficult (and a pain in the ass) to keep track of. The last thing I want to do, is visit 50 different sites […]

Holiday Traveler’s Guide To Interstate Highways

I was driving home today from seeing my family for Thanksgiving, and I noticed a few things that are typical of drivers on the road after a big holiday. These are usually folks traveling because of the holidays, in distances they don’t normally travel. These distances seem to make even the most stalwart of motorists […]

Michael Parler

A few months ago, I started working at Hydra Studio. The experience has certainly been the most challenging in my life. At the same time, it’s arguably one of the more rewarding jobs I’ve ever had. I’ve worked on some amazing stuff at Hydra. I’ve learned a whole lot and met some awesome people. One […]

President Obama

Well, It appears that the Osama Obama Bin Ladin Biden ticket has won the executive office of the United States. I wish I could be optimistic about the outcome. I’ve got good friends who, despite being conservative also, don’t think Obama will run a socialist leaning White House. I hope they’re right.  I sincerely hope […]

Savannah Vacation

Melissa and I got away for the weekend to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. After some indecision on our part, we decided to go to Savannah, GA. It’s not too far of a drive, but it’s still far enough to feel like a vacation. We took off Friday from work (thanks dudes!) so we could […]

NFi Studios

Recently my boss, Sterling , wrote up about all of us at NFi on his personal blog. It’s flattering to hear what he has to say. I probably shouldn’t care too much about the accolades that I may, or may not recieve from other people, but I do. All of us at NFi work very […]

Housewarming Party Wrap-Up

Housewarming Party

Last Saturday night my wife and I had our housewarming party. It’s been about 4 months since we moved in, but with getting settled, crazy projects, and other stuff going on in life, we finally got around to having the party just now. Overall, it was a good time; minus a few minor details. My […]

Florida Creatives

Last night, Bender and I went down to the Crooked Bayou for the Florida Creatives event over there. I couldn’t stay long, but I still had a good time. I was able to talk to a lot of friends, and meet some new people I spent some time talking to my buddy Greg about business. […]

Food & Wine Festival

I’ve been outspoken that Orlando is more than Mickey . Today however, I enjoyed the benefits of tourism in Orlando. My wife, Melissa, and I went to the Food & Wine Festival held at Epcot. We left the house around 3:30pm and made the drive on I-4 down there. I had been working all day […]

I’m Never Watching Football Again

I don’t know what I was thinking. I’ve voluntarily kept myself away from football for over a decade now. Actually, make that closer to 15 years. Somehow I let myself ‘get back in the game’. That was a big mistake for me. When I was 14, I was at my mom’s house for thanksgiving, watching […]
