The problem with people...

They appreciate the known over the unknown, no matter how promising the unknown is. What? DrX can post ridiculously short and uninformative posts, but not me?

And speaking of religion:

Christians. Praying for money. To a golden bull. Seriously.

This could only have originated from somebody trying to fuck with Jesus people, right? Or the 700 Club.

Deuteronomy 23:1

That is all.

Maybe I should rethink this...

In trying to film myself shaving in the style of The Bay, I blew up my bathroom... Now I have a mess of burnt shaving cream to clean up. I suffer for my art. Look for the video in the coming days.

Update: Great, I have burn marks on the ceiling that won't come out... Bye bye security deposit!

Update 2: Ok, I can't resist posting this now:

It's 6:00 and I'm stuck at work

SO the last two weeks has been budget season here at "The Card" and it sucks. Basically, I have done nothing the last 4 work days, but yet am I told I have to sit here for another 2 hours after my usual leave time "in case something happens". Nothing ever happens except me sitting here bored. Sorry if this is a boring post, but I needed to ge this off my chest. It's fucking ridicolous. I'd rather be watching a video of Kev shaving his legs than sit here any longer. AAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Challenge me!

Ok, so here's an idea. I'm going to make another movie this coming weekend (since I have nothing else to do). The next movie will be Kevin shaving, sticking with the morning routine theme. You guys pick the style you want to see it done in. Whether it is a genre, director, or specific movie, just throw some ideas out here and I'll put it up for a vote or something.

I can't be stopped!

Another boring day, another video!

My first short film

Seeing as how I am bored and I own a fancy new camera, I now present to you my first short film:

Rum Chugger

So there has not been many stories told of the great Schneider wedding of 2008 on this blog, but I do have 1 that I have been meaning to post.

On the day of the wedding, myself, Kev, Phishbone, and a few others went out for a nice relaxing lunch at the local pub. Upon arriving back we stopped by our rooms to get ready for the wedding.

In my room, I open my bottle of bicardi and pour myself a drink. About 2 minutes later Kev entrs and asks if I still have any bicardi. As someone how prefers to not drink alone, I offer him my bottle which was about half full (1 liter size).

To my amazement, kev takes the top off and begins to chug the bottle of rum. In about 10 seconds, Kev the Great drank half a liter of Bicardi. Then he turned around and walked out of the room back into his own. I was dumbfounded. I didn't know what to say or do. I go next door and he and Fish, and BG are laughing histarically (sp?). apparently they decide to bet Kev he wouldn't go into my room and drink my rum, so he did.

And what did kev get out of this bet??? NOTHING!!! Apparently in his infant wisdom he forgot to bet anything. Well as the wedding proceeded about 1.5 hours later, Kev did manage to stay awake through the ceremony. However various reports had him vomiting during teh cock tail hour and possibly in teh beginning of the reception. I do have to admit though, kev was still drinknig trhough out the night as he bounced back like a true alcky.

And that is how kev the Great became Kev the Rum Chugger. The end

I got it!

My new camcorder came today! I've been screwing around with it and it totally kicks ass. Anyone know of any good video editing software?

Nag, Nag, Nag

So it seems that my brothers have inherited this special skill from my mother. They forget that the whole world doesn't have a cushy job which includes sitting in front of the computer all day. ;)
So what is it like to be a hairdresser? It kinda sucks, actually. You have to be on your feet all day with your hands in wet hair and have to do all the sucky customer service and sales things that you'd have to do working in Macys. The worst part of all is having to make small talk with 10-15 people every single day, it's horribly draining. Teaching is certainly better, you get to do the fun parts without the dried up hands, sore back and feet. Turns out I'm pretty freakin good at teaching, too..
You'd think that being around 200 cute 18 year olds would be a good thing, but have you been around an 18 year old lately? I swear they're like 12. And our school doesn't have federal funding yet, so a lot of the girls who are there have parents who can afford to just drop $27K on a year of school. Doesn't matter how cute a spoiled 18 year old is..

Looking for a distraction

I know I haven't been doing much blogging lately. I don't even really know if I know how to blog. Fine thing to be learning over a year after starting this thing. Not much excitement happens round here, and I'm not one to get too personal about anything, so therefore not many posts. All I got is these stream of consciousness blabberings (is that a word?). Anyways, did anyone do anything exciting over the weekend? I watched a ton of movies. I find that I never get lonely as long as there is a good movie for me to watch. Hmmm, maybe that's stunting my social life, but I don't care, it's what I love. I'll be working second shift again this week, so I'll try to post some stuff late at night when I'm bored at work. I'll try to be more entertaining, too, but no guarantees.

Oh, it's on!

I just ordered a A Sony hdr-sr11 camcorder. It's on folks! I figure there will be plenty of time for me to learn the ins and outs of the camera by the time we are ready to shoot, but this is real now. We're making a mother fucking movie! 
Beck, do you actually read this blog? If so, are you going to be in NY at Christmas time and can you do hair and makeup? You've done photo shoots before, right? Maybe you can help out with lighting, too? That's gonna be the area where I'll need the most help, I think...

I have a free ticket!

Hey folks! Long time, no see! I hope everyone is doing splendidly! Anyways, I just thought I'd let you all know that I have earned a free round trip plane ticket to anywhere in the US. Unfortunately there are blackout dates around Christmas time, so I can't use it then. What I can do, however is use it to fly somewhere in the next few month in order to make a short film with my wonderful friends. That somewhere would most likely be Albany. Anyone think they could meet me there at anytime? Or should I just wait to film that when everyone is around for Christmas? I've got the itch, folks!

I'm still here!

Hey folks, sorry for not posting in a while. It's been a kind of crazy week for me. I am back, though, and I come bearing pictures! You see, I went deep sea fishing yesterday with a few guys from work. It was pretty cool. The boat left out of Atlantic Beach at 6AM which sucked, especially considering we were up until 2AM drinking in the hotel. Anyways, we went way way out into the ocean and fished all day long and ended up abducting a ton of fish from the ocean. Here's my catch:

Yup, I caught a shark. Here's a closeup of his angry little face:

On the way back to the docks, we came across a group of dolphins who decided to play in the boats wake:

It was a fun trip, in all. I'm a bit sunburnt, but it was worth it. Hope everyone else had a great weekend!

Hurricane Ike Pictures

My kitchen ceiling wasn't vaulted when last I saw it.

One side of the backyard. Tree underneath the fence aren't too damaged, but the worst part is that the neighbors have this little ratty ass dog that they just turn loose. This dog tried to attack Phishbone through the window screen. Dog is damn lucky I'm not at home.

Other side of the backyard. There are three other trees lost in the branches of this fallen one. The next pictures are what the area looked like after we cleaned up the backyard.

This landscaping was completley hidden by the fallen tree.

Unfortunately I don't have pictures of phishbone and I up on the roof putting the tarps down, but it was fun.

Yo Phishbone!

Let's see some pics of the destruction!
