Renaissance Man

Well, I know I haven't written anything on here in a long time... but I've meant to! Doesn't that count for something? I've honestly planned on writing something for awhile, but I just kept forgetting. Then, the other day I tried logging in and discovered that I had forgotten my password - obviously now I've remembered.

So, for my "return" I've decided to tell you that I have a new title "Renaissance Man"! I've had some odd things happen in my life of late (maybe why I haven't posted), and it's about time I told ya.


I have been continuing my free-lance work. The hours are fine and the demand is high. I'm trying to scult them a little so that I'm able to spend a little more time at home. Like most people realize at different points, it's all about the quality of life that matters.


I haven't been reading all that many books of late. In the last while I finished Freakonomics (quite good), Digital Characters (average), Canadian History (for dummies), and Korea Witness (not too bad).


Snakes on a plane!! - it is what it is, a B movie.
X-Men 3 - Loved it.
Superman returns - not too bad.
Clerks 2 - like the Kevin Smith stuff.
My Super Ex-Girlfriend - I like superheroes and all... but not this.


Lot's of movies out there but also some interesting comic books. Apparently Civil War is on, I'm trying to catch up on the Marvel stuff. Also, the Justice League had a kind of cool cartoon series that I downloaded. As well, as always, you can ckeck out my stuff here. http://juggertha.deviantart.com/


My buddies Aaron and Na Young got married last month... and I was the... presenter/minister/officiator. http://idiotscollective.blogspot.com/2006/07/seoul-nuptuals.html


I'm hessitant to post up too much on this one, but I'm growing in my involvement with LiNK. http://www.linkglobal.org/ Last week I met Kang Chol Hwan of Aquariums of Pyongyang, the director of Yodok Story, the manager of Radio Free North Korea, and US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.

Movies (again):

I was in a movie last month (post below this one) and the other night I got a call to be an extra in another. This one had no lines, but I got to hang out with some friends, meet some cool people, and make a bit of cash.

My wife was quite happy with one thing though, I met Daniel Henney. For those who might not know, he is the "Korean Brad Pit" and is adored by all here. I must say, that after meeting him and talking with him a bit, he's a cool enough guy. Just your average joe that made it big. And yes, for any of you Korean girls that are reading... he's a decent looking guy in person too. ;)
