But it's always nice visiting family as I don't get to see them as much as I would like to. Also I got to see my nephew Kenobi twice in one week which is always great as he is growing up so fast. We took to a small beach and he got to experience sand and the ocean for the first time.. he loved both!!!
All in all it was a great day.

So when I got home I checked online and was very surprised at the costs of home gyms.. for a decent one you are looking to spend $1500 to $4000. So I talked it over with Harry and we both agreed since it's for our health and to better our lives it's worth the $1000 to get it.. so we plan on going back this weekend to pick it up. Also spending that much is another motivator to keep me working out.. there is no way I'm spending that kind of money and not using it.
After that I worked on editing my next CompanionCast for Knights of the Guild podcast. New episodes come out every Tuesday and the companioncasts come out the day after.. so I really wanted to get the next one done early. I was hoping to get more then one done but I did manage to complete S4E4, still hope to finish E5, E6 and E7 by the weekend.. but will see how things go.
All in all is was another busy day.

I just don't understand the hate towards gay marriage. How does two loving adults wanting to share their lives together effect straight couples? The churches, especially the Mormon church put millions of dollars into ads saying "think of the children, it will hurt the children", so I ask again how is gay marriage going to hurt the children? It doesn't plan and simple.
I have people say "well California has a really good domestic partnership program that gives you about 90% of what a marriage will give you.. aren't you happy with that?" And I respond with NO.. why should gay people not have the full 100% rights of married straight people.
Then some say that they think it's more of an issue of using the term Marriage.. would it be cool if you used the term Civil Unions. Again I say NO, if straight couple can use the term marriage why can't gay couples? We aren't forcing churches to have to marry gay couples.. if they want to segregate the gay couples out that is fine, but they shouldn't be getting any tax breaks or funding from the State. There are plenty of churches out there that are willing to marry gay couples. And for that matter.. lots of gay couple don't need to be married in a church. The reason most gay couples want to get married are the benefits of being married, taxes, hospital visits, etc...
Gay people getting married will in no way hurt "straight" marriages. We still have a long road ahead of us but hopefully this is a start.
And for those asking Harry and I can't get married even if it was legal because of the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) which is a Federal law that states a marriage is between a man and a woman and the immigration department is ran be Federal law.. so until that is over turned, which they are working on we can't benefit from any of these marriage laws. :(
It’s time for our next CompanionCast for Season 4 of The Guild. First of all be sure you watched Episode 3 of season 4. If you haven’t seen it yet watch it HERE
What is a CompanionCast?? It’s a behind the scene look at the current episode of The Guild.
I was on set everyday while they shot Season 4. As actors and crew were finished with scenes I would try and speak to them. Get some inside info about the scene they just shot. I also interviewed Felicia Day and Kim Evey about the storyline and Sean Becker about the directing. Each one of these CompanionCasts will be episode specific and will vary in length depending on how much guildie goodness I was about to gather.
In this CompanionCast I interview Felicia Day, Sean Becker, Vince Caso, Greg Aronowitz, Kim Evey, Sandeep Parikh, and Wil Wheaton.
I hope you enjoy a look behind the scenes of Season 4 Episode 3 “Oversupportive’d”

So now that I'm about to turn 40 I have decided to really dedicate myself in losing the weight and getting back into shape. I know this won't happen over night but I'm in it for the long haul. To start off with I'm going to do my best at eating less crap food, this will be the biggest struggle for me but I'm going to try my best. Second I'm buying a home gym so I can work out everyday. I use to love to work out (loved how it made me feel) and I'm sure I can get back into that routine.
Today I cleaned out our small garage ( we have a 3 car garage, 1 car and a 2 car section) It's now ready for my home gym which I'll be buying in the next few days. We already have an elliptical machine so my cardio is set. Gotta hook up some music or TV so keep my company.
When I start I'm going to keep a daily workout blog and keep everyone updated on my progress. I'm doing this for several reason.. 1 to keep my friends and family up to date and 2 the more important part, to use it as a motivator. Knowing that folks are watching my progress I hope it encourages me when I'm feeling a bit off or not up to working out... I need you guys to help support me during this tough process. Going to be staring on Monday.. stay tuned.

Like with The Last Airbender, after watching it I don't understand why it's not doing better then it is. I really enjoyed this movie. The storyline was interesting, fun and not overly complicated. the special effects were AWESOME, the car chase scenes were cool and the final battle was great. I just don't understand why it's not doing better then it is. Maybe it's a Nic Cage thing... who knows.. all I know is I'll be buying this movie for sure when it comes out on Blu-Ray.
