Coast Guard Movie

Not many of you may know but I spent 4 years on active duty in the Coast Guard and 2 1/2 years in the Coast Guard Reserve. I just found out about a new movie called “The Guardian” starring Ashton Kutcher and Kevin Kostner which just began filming.

“Plot Outline: In an effort to find his place in life, a troubled young man enlists in the Coast Guard, where he’s taken in by a renown rescue swimmer who’s hardened by the loss of his team from an accident years back. ”

My times in the Coast Guard were some very good times of my life, and am incredibly excited to see this movie when it comes out.

Chicago Bloggers has a great idea on their website, the blogs listed on their site are categorized by what train line/stop that particular blogger is close too, so now us chicagoans can check out who gets off at the same train stop. I’m thinking this could be expanded on a bit using Google’s Maps API and make it a bit more interactive and trendy 🙂

The World of Quality Coffee

Press PotWell last night I pulled out my trusty old French Press and decided to make some press pot coffee. I have been listening to the Coffee Geek podcast for a while and have been contemplating buying a decent espresso machine. They talk about press pot coffee quite a bit and how it is a great way to get into quality coffee as it is a fairly low cost way of getting quality coffee. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make Press Pot coffee with french press.

Don’t forget you should use a decent Burr grinder and some quality coffee, I prefer coffee bean’s from Pete’s or Intelligentsia.

Another reason why Myspaces Sucks

Not only are myspaces websites the ugliest I have ever seen, here is another reason to boycott them.

Youtube, would you get some permalinks on your blog? They have RSS feeds for their recently added videos, but I think their service could be added to have an RSS feed for their blog and video categories. Lets say I’m only interested in Videoblogging or Art’s and Animation videos, I would like those to be received automaticly instead of having to sift through or just see their new stuff.
