New Year! New Planner Calendar! 2017! (clutter culture)

After a week or so of 2016 I wrote a hopeful post about my new planner. It looked like this:

My 2016 wasn't great. I'm still alive, have food, family, and health, but there were some rough parts of the year.

I look forward to a new year.

Here is what the calendar looks like now:

I didn't add very many stickers.

2016 didn't deserve many stickers.

I'm tempted to burn this planner... but I'll probably just put it in my office with the other ones.

I have a new planner!

I have some hope that 2017 will be a good year. Not as much as I did for 2016, but there is some.

Maybe 2017 will be worthy of a cover caked with stickers.

Oh, yeah.

Lots of great people died this year.

I don't really do much of the "remembering celebrities that just died" thing. Everyone else has it pretty much covered. It feels more "look at me" than any real tribute to those that have passed.

So I haven't really done much about Carrie Fisher or George Michael or Debbie Reynolds or anybody else that died.

I'm going to post a couple videos below from my youtube channel. They aren't tributes, but they are disgusting self-promotion.  Both videos are related to someone who passed this year (George Michael and Debbie Reynolds), but they aren't about them. They're about me.

I feel horrible doing this, but I also keep thinking about posting these stupid videos.

I don't feel better, but at least it's done now.

It's Freaking Cold!

I guess I never posted this here.

It's still technically Christmas. And it is still cold outside... kinda.

So whatever. It's on here now!

Frosted Krusty O's Krusty Brand Cereal!

I did a new review!

This cereal came out as part of the promotion for the Simpson's movie. Back when they turned some 7-Elevens into Kwik E Marts. They had KrustyO's, pink Doughnuts, Squishees, and Buzz Cola (which Sir Mike got and gave one to me, and then I reviewed it!).

These KrustyO's tasted like stale Fruit Loops.

So not horrible.

I made a playlist of all my Simpsons-related videos!

Watch them all!

Christmas and all is quiet

I was having trouble falling asleep last night. So I made a couple quiet videos:

I like to whistle. I like the song "Oh, Christmas Tree".


Here is 4 quiet minutes of the Christmas Tree from my afewquietminutes youtube account:

And here is 4 minutes of a fire in our backyard fire pit that I forgot to make public  during the fall:

In Home Alone 2 is that Kevin's Voice on the Talkboy?

A couple years ago I did a review of the Talkboy:

As I made the video I noticed that the voice on the Talkboy during the phone call to the hotel did not match Kevin's voice in the scene where he recorded it.

So today I made a new video exploring this further (with clearer audio):

I don't think that's Kevin's voice on the recording. I don't know whose voice it is. Chris Columbus'? John Hughes'? I don't know.

Your guess is as good as mine.

Entry of the Wizards!

Here are two Harry Potter universe heroes' names sung to the tune of "Entry of the Gladiators" written by Julius Fucik!

I think these drawings turned out pretty good!

MisterSeth interview on the Good Stuff Kids Podcast!

This is so cool!

I got interviewed for the Good Stuff Kids Podcast!

Here's a screenshot!

Here's a link to the interview!

Here's what I wrote on facebook about it:

"I got interviewed for the great Good Stuff Kids Podcast! I blather on about writing music for children and their grown up! The podcast is great for anyone with kids! Do yourself a huge favor and check out all of the other episodes! Mike interviews everyone from Caspar Babypants to Laurie Berkner to the head writer of "Go Diego Go" to people who make great clothing for girls to... it goes on and on! Plus there is a top 4 + 1 list of songs (4 his children request and 1 classic he tries to get them to appreciate). It really is some of the best "Good Stuff"!

You really should go check it out! It's a great resource for parents!

It's December!!!!

It's December!

I loved Thanksgiving! I had a great time with my family, ate too much, etc.

During November I participated in NaNoWriMo!

And I won!

I wrote a novel called "Status: Solver"! It's pretty stream-of-conscious and probably not the best book, but if you want to read it you can read it HERE!

If you participated, good for you! I hope you won too!

Here's a celebration song I recorded when I first won, several years ago!
