Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

So I just came across this old spoof of Cops, called Troops. Pretty funny stuff.

I recommend the higher quality download, but if you don't have the time or space (28 mb), check out the lower quality YouTube video.

And after that, you'll want to check out the sequel, IMPS.: The Relentless.

Warning: Some of these sequel chapters are huge! (200 mb+)

The estrangement of modern life?

...we die to each other daily.
What we know of other people
Is only our memory of the moments
During which we knew them. And they have
________changed since then
To pretend that they and we are the same
Is a useful and convenient social convention
Which must sometimes be broken. We must
________also remember
That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.

Summer Pics Finale

Well, the fall is here, so I figured I ought to at least finally get around to uploading the rest of my summer trip pictures...

First, sweet home Chicago--the family trip to Chi-town for July 4th weekend.

Second, white water rafting in West Virginia the weekend before school started back up. Plus, camping just off the side of the road right smack dab in the middle of Appalachia! Anybody in the mood for Deliverance?

Lastly, the Labor Day Weekend Traverse City Cabin Trip Extravaganza! And yes, we did chop down a tree, trek all the way across Sandy Bear Dunes, and eat at the scary Cherry Hut family restaurant--it was truly a trip of many "firsts"! Wish more of you could have been there.

And so ends the summer of Chris.
