The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

I think everyone should watch this movie. It is an incredible animation that I think would be hard to not love. Either way, here is a step-by-step guide on how to watch it.

The Movie is located here

To play the movie, click the link on the bottom of the page that says "Watch in online here"

It will open in a new window. Also, the movie is in 3 separate files. So when 1/3 finishes, just click the "next arrow" symbol on the control bar to get to "2/3" and so.

The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles, which I can 200% guarantee is better than English by a substantial margin. However, if you have lost your ability to read, then you can watch the movie dubbed in English by clicking the link below.

WWC Article

I'm doing some sort of PR stuff for my work crew this semester under WWC PR guy John Bowers, who helps to write and compile the alumni magazine, among other things.
Here is my first published article.

I figured out scrolling issue

Hey Hans, I figured out why you can't scroll the grooveshark playlist, I'm pretty sure. It's because of differences in web browsers. Web browsers are the programs you use to see the Internet. Popular examples include Internet Explorer and Mozilla Forefox. Different web browsers interpret HTML and other code and scripts in different ways. If you're living responsibly, being a good human being, and desire that your soul continue on to some sort of aftelife or reincarnation, you are actively using Firefox, or at the very least, are not using Internet Exlorer. This is besides the point, however.

I always use Firefox, and the grooveshark playlist works perfectly for me. I have no idea which browser you generally use, but I've started uaing Google Chrome the past couple of days (because it runs significantally faster on my comp) and it does not show the playlist properly; most notably, the scroll bar is outside of the frame to the right. It's hypothetically possible you're using Chrome. But it's more likely your using Internet Explorer, perhaps an outdated version, or maybe an outdated version of Firefox. My suggestion: try using a different web browser and/or upgrading your current browser, and see what happens.

P.S. Out of curiousity, has anyone started using Grooveshark outside of this blog?

So Jill & I took a 3 hour train ride out to the tip of L.I. this weekend. It was real nice. Kind of like all the other beaches. No seashells though like at S.C. but plenty of little to medium stones.

Electromagnetic Thread


Kat was doing laundry and discovered this thread, defying gravity and rising straight up from this sock. We discovered that as we approached it with our hand, it moved away. It continued to stand and move for about 5 minutes. It was quite fascinating. I am not sure why I called it a "device", something to do with the thrill of the moment, I suppose. So, what do you think of our dancing thread?

This is a 3 week age difference from when Clive was about 17 weeks and now, as Sefi is 14 weeks old. So, do they actually look alike to anyone else?

Top Songs Results

This is what we've got so far. Basically, there is this website Grooveshark, that allows you to listen to almost every song ever, for free, legally, and full length (unlike the awefullness of imeem). The reason its legal is because every fish in the food chain gets a cut, from the artist, to the publisher, to the person who uploaded the song on the site. Anyway, the site's amazing; I use it all the time because my terrible Internet connection can actually handle it. Also, unlike, say, Pandora Radio, you can make a list of any songs you want and permanently favorite them. I have an account. But for the purpose of this somewhat eclectic mix of songs, I made a new Haverkamp account. I also had to make a new Haverkamp email address.

For the Haverkamp playlist, I took a couple of liberties. They don't have the Dr. Horrible Commentary up yet (you can do that yourself Fletcher), so I added Perfect Story in its stead. I also added Dreams to represent The Cranberries. The site allows you to make a playlist that you can embed in a site. Which is exactly what I did.

Any of you can go onto the Grooveshark account to add more song. Then, you can update the widget information (which is what the sidebar playlist is).

But there's a catch. You have to guess the password to the Haverkamp Grooveshark account to do so. I'll give you two hints.
1. The login name for the Grooveshark account is "Haverkamp".
2. The login name for the Gmail account is "haverkampfamily".
3. Both accounts share the same password.

Shouldn't be too much trouble :)

The new greatest pic of all time

OK, this is a pic of Slayer ending a jam (which is done by moving the hands and arms in a slashing motion at the hips) as she was crashing onto her knees. You can't tell me this isn't awesome. Honestly, I am waiting for Roller Derby to make it to the x-games.


Coolest Robber Ever

Check out this news story.

A man returned home Saturday to find someone had broken in, but nothing was missing - except a $6 steak that was apparently cooked and eaten while he was away.

An intruder broke a window to enter 1516 NE Perry Ave. sometime between 11 a.m. and 9:45 p.m.

The resident, returning home that night, discovered the broken window. After searching the house for any missing items, he went into his kitchen and found a large mess.

There were dirty dishes in the sink, a dirty skillet on the stove, used paper towels all over the counter and the steak he had been defrosting was missing, according to police reports.

How crazy is that? The robber was either really really hungry, or has some interesting morale values, or both.

Now how about some academic pics

The teacher in one of his elements. Notice the extreme concentration on my students face.

Notice the focus and determination.

Subject during exercise. See the esophageal balloon exiting her left nostril?

My exercise setup.




More Bout Shots

At the conclusion of the bout - we lost by 6 pts...very close match, and we actually had a wicked comeback from down 20 pts during the final 10 minutes or so. Slayer is the most prominent skater in this pic.

Another one of my favorite action shots. This shows Slayer literally banging her way through the pack. It was totally awesome!
I like the words on shorts on the girl from Ottawa's team. She was one of their strong jammers.




The Opening Bout for Green Mountain Derby Dames

An action shot. Slayer not in this pic.

One of my favorites...this shows Slayer and the Jammer from the Ottawa team just before the jam began.
An action shot.
This was during the introductions before the bout. Gives just a hint of the capacity crowd on hand.

A shot of Slayer and some of the crowd. See the cowbell? More cowbell!!! (if you are older than 35 yrs you probably won't understand the joke - sorry.)

kids only tell the truth

this is a story about one little boy, namely foust,
who does tell the truth and he said he did and he relaly meant it,
so, he's been alittle sicky, tonsilectomy and virus, cough,
you know the general, hit the poor little kid hard, no harder for a couple of
weeks of suffering,
he was here today, had his 1/2 melted down fluff sandwich and then
i found him, in the puppy room, already bedded down
and trying to sleep,
he had , had pain meds at 7 am, when frits brought him
and i was to judge if more was needed, later,
all of a sudden he woke up, 1;45, about 1 1/2 hrs after he went to sleep
and keith came and got me,
and said, foust is really crying and upset,
and in pain maybe,
so, i came in, he went and got the thermometer from frits's house
and i got his pain med out,
he looked terrible, white, crying, sick,
anway, no fever, he had to have his medicine a certain way,
and took it,
and by 2:15 was on his way back to life,
when firts got here, foust said, daddy come here, nama, come here,
i want to tell you why i was afraid, why i was crying,
so we both went,
and he pointed out the electric key board, kat has , resting on the dog crate,
and said, it talked to him,
so, frits looked at him and with out, a word, foust adementally, said, i'm telling the truth,
i relaly am,
frits said, ok, bud, well, i'm sorry and it's ok,
and i htought pyhoctic , break from fever and pain,
well, later, much later, when dad and i talked,
keith said, that by the way, that key board talks back when it hears noice,
i couldnt' believe it,
he does and was, and did tell the truth,
the whole truth and nothing but the truth,

Stride Gum made this video of this guy dancing in 42 different countries. Pretty fun to watch.

Make sure you watch it in HD or it will be pointless. You can click the "Watch in HD" link directly below the video next to the volume tab.

Radio interview

Hey dudes.

The first home Derby Bout of the season for Star Slayer and the rest of the Green Mountain Derby Dames is tomorrow night. They have several radio spots today, one of which is taking place beginning at 11:30am and I believe it is slated to continue for something like 2 hours into the early afternoon. I think it is a talkradio station in Burlington.

So, if you are hanging out and want to listen in, go to this link: http://www.theradiator.org/

Several of the Roller-girls, including Kristin, will be there and kick it with the the DJ for a while (or at least I think that is the deal).

peace out all.
