Game over.....

Aliens is my ALL TIME favorite movie.. ever.. forever and for always. FAVORITE. I am blessed to be born at a time when I could see it in the theater and I will never forget it.

I'm so sad to hear of the passing of Bill Paxton who played 'Hudson' (pictured above), the "tough as nails until the shit went down" member of the Colonial Marines.

He'll be forever immortalized in my office, as some time back I designed a poster for my favorite film which features those immortal words screamed in panic right after a horrible defeat at the ... hands? claws? ... of the Alien menace.

Rest in peace, Mr. Paxton. The news of your passing caused all of us to....

"Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen."

Pondering Time....

Since the dawn of time, the world's great thinkers have looked up at the night sky and explored their innermost thoughts, daring to solve the mysteries of the universe. Many times, those questions have been answered, providing us with luxuries that we often take for granted ... smart phones, medical advances, skittles ...

However, there are many questions left UNanswered; questions that are so deep we may never know the answers ... are we alone in the universe, is time travel possible, Betty or Veronica ...

Today, I join the ranks of the world's great thinkers by posing a conundrum so dripping in mystification it may NEVER be solved....

Who would win in a fight between JASON VORHEES and a horde of ZOMBIES?

Easy answer you say? Consider this...
  1. Jason feels no pain - neither do zombies.
  2. Jason runs from no one - neither do zombies.
  3. Jason cannot be killed - neither can zombies (unless you get them in the noggin).
  4. Jason is basically a zombie himself. Would the horde even acknowledge him?
  5. Would a zombie bite affect Jason (see #4)?
  6. Would the horde overtake Jason, or would he just hack his way through them like Chuck Norris in a room full of pinatas?
So ... did I just twist up your gray matter (Please say yes. This is all I have)? Sweet! Grab some Doritos and diet coke, argue this with your pals and get back to me. I'm curious what you come up with.

Aim high. Run fast. Don't shower in a dark cabin in the woods at night.

It's My Cake Day

Yep, it's true. I'm not terribly excited by it, however, because at my age it feels more like a countdown than an achievement.

My emergence into this world is kind of an interesting story....

Forty-nine years ago today, my mother (18 at the time) was brought to the hospital to give birth. She was an unwed teen, and her parents "strongly encouraged" her to put me up for adoption. She was sedated so that she wouldn't know my gender, and I was born.

The next day a nurse came in to see how she was healing and asked "have you not seen your baby yet?" My mother replied "no, I haven't." The nurse told her she would be right back ... and never returned.

I was adopted into a great family and had a wonderful life. My adoptive parents wanted me to know the truth about my heritage, so as far as I can remember, I've always known I was adopted.

When I was 23 and newly married, we looked for my biological parents and found them. They're amazing people and I am blessed to get to know them.

But enough of all that! Go out tonight! Celebrate! Eat some cake and enjoy what I call "St. Brett's Day!" (I'm still trying to figure out how to get it recognized on a national calendar).

Aim high. Run fast.
