So i got a little crazy and took a shot at creativity… hoping to push beyond the normal coverage and do something original…

peace… love… bdg…

So, i suppose i owe something of an explanation or an apology or something… i suppose it was somewhat irresponsible to post that last week in the thick of one of the busiest weeks i’ve had going in a while, knowing that i couldn’t follow up or explain it any time soon… well… for the quick answer… no.

No, i’m not leaving my position at CMCentral.com… a few follow-up Q&A’s because i know you’re all so investigative and hard-hitting…

Q: Have you considered leaving CMCentral?
A: oh yeah.

Q: Why?
A: frustration abounds

Q: Why aren’t you leaving?
A: I’ve committed (in a sense) to a specific amount of time and i want to honor that commitment. This commitment may be only in my head, but i think it’s still important that i follow through on it.

Q: How long is that?
A: i shouldn’t say, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out, if you look closely enough. I will say that i have all my features planned out through mid August…

Q: What about after that time is up?
A: honestly, don’t know right now. I’ll face that decision based on the circumstances that exist at that time. No guarantees of course, i’m a wild card…

Q: I’ve heard rumors that you’re planning. . .
A: yeah, that’s probably TRu… (*wink*)

feel free to add any other questions if you care to or if i neglected something… most of you know how to get in touch with me… For now and for the immediate future, it’s business as usual… i’m currently working on this week’s reviews and feature, which is gonna be pretty neat i hope…

As far as last week, i was very frustrated… very under the gun… but it all worked out… this week is busy as well, but not as much… so that’s a good thing… now, if only i can behave for a while, get some things done, etc… then maybe i can finally get part 2 written of “My Enemies”… something to look forward to i suppose…

currently listening to:

DecembeRadio – DecembeRadio
Fighting Instinct- Fighting Instinct
Flatfoot 56 – Knuckles Up
Kierra “Kiki” Sheard – This Is Me (Special Edition)
dcTalk – Jesus Freak
Various – FREAKED!

keeping an eye on…

peace… love… bdg…

So, i’m live in Boston, i was hoping to do some sort of regular blogging update thing, but as always i’m overbusy and have little room in my head or schedule to do everything that i’d like to… let’s see if i can catch up…

It’s Sunday (we’re pretending)… i’m skipping church to catch a plane to head off to Boston… little boy tried to convince me that Boston wasn’t in Massachusetts but in fact it was in church… (i’m pretty sure he got Boston confused with his Sunday School classmate, Austin)… nice try buddy, i’d stay if i could… so, we get to the airport and i make it through security without a hitch and indulge in some treats from Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts…. (oh sweet french crullers… it’s been far too long)… i’m starting to wonder if there’s anyone in America who travels without a laptop anymore… everyone has to flash their laptops to get through the security checkpoint and it seems to me that everyone has one…

So, i’m boarding the airplane only to realize that 75% of the passengers are headed to Microsoft Tech Ed 2006 which is my destination… no surprise we’re on Jet Blue which is the obvious choice for geeks because we get to watch DirecTV as we fly… anyway… this is all boring except that i watched SportsCenter while reading The Last Christian Generation and that one of my coworkers dumped a can of Coke in his lap and it was amusing (in a mean way) to watch him flailing across the aisle…

So, yadda yadda yadda… we get checked in and registered and we head over to the keynote presentation… yikes! almost three hours… a handful of important Microsoft people giving speeches and demos… and oh yeah, the guest attraction was some chick from 24… i guess it was a highlight, buti’m still holding strong with having never seen an episode of the show… anyway, she was there because they spoofed the show during the keynote to drive home the point of… um… yeah… it worked well…

Actually, a few interesting things that i noticed was a focus on “people” and a focus on a bigger budget… which says to me.. (i know, i’m a skeptic)… “we want you to think that we like you enough so that you’ll be willing to loosen your purse strings and pay us through the teeth for our fancy new products”… Anyway… it’s pretty much buzz central here at the conference so far… marketing is the obvious king here and we’re all being inundated with the latest catch phrases and pleas for product loyalty… i actually laughed out loud when they announced that one of their promises was to “amplify the impact of your people” because just the other day, i posted this press release… ah… when world’s collide… not sure how i feel about Indelible Creative Group anymore, that’s for sure…

And so the keynote was done and there were lots of promises made not too much excitement from the crowd – possibly because many of us were grumpy about having a Sunday night keynote – and we all filed out to wait in the incredible shuttle bus lines which we found by following the numerous security guards waving plastic lighted cattle prod batons… it’s also worth noting that i ate at Maggiano’s for the first time on Sunday too… i think that’s about it for Sunday… it may also interest you to know that i’m rooming with my boss this week, because apparently we employees aren’t worth the cost of our own hotel rooms… wonderful… i’ll be back in a bit to talk about yesterday which was Monday… in my unofficial official MS Tech Ed 2006 blog entries… i need to figure out a way to get some reviews written this week… (i did post a new Left to Write over at CMCentral)…

currently listening to:

Sivion – Spring of the Songbird
Jason Morant – Open
Fair – The Best Worst Case Scenario
Ayiesha Woods – Introducing Ayiesha Woods

Still here? me too and have i got a lot to write about… but first, i’m working on some reviews and i have to conduct an interview and get some work done and get “unfrustrated”… you can always read the Decyfer Down interview i posted at CMCentral this week… it’s kind of funny and offbeat much like me…

in other news, before i run off… this has been a ridiculously difficult week for me… very frustrating from just about every imaginable angle… and next week, i’ll be in bean town which will keep me away from my castle of recharging each night… not looking forward to it… anyway…

currently listening to:

Red- End of Silence
Jessie Daniels – Jessie Daniels
Day of Fire – Cut and Move
Decyfer Down – End of Grey
