He shot a man in Reno,
…my mom and dad took me to Disney World in Florida. I was five years old, and it was my first time in a Disney park.
A couple days ago, my dad scanned a bunch of old negatives from that trip. Yesterday, he sent a batch of them to Bethany and me. (Note: Bethany wasn’t on this trip because she was only nine months old at the time. My parents left her with our grandparents.)
I was going through all of the images when I came across this photo:

Don’t mind if I do, insane man. Don’t mind if I do.
Danish Yiddish Jewish,
…was an event held in Hawaii a few weeks ago for the season premiere of “Lost.”
Jay and Jack (of the popular “Lost” podcast) were there to interview folks on the red carpet. Bethany and Jorge were two of those folks.
Check it out here:
Jay and Jack’s next video will feature a tour of “Lost” locations around the island, and Bethany will be playing their tour guide. I’ll be sure to post that video when it’s up.
Proud big brother,
