One of the funnier characters caught on film in the 1990’s was Mike Meyers’ portrayal as his onscreen Scottish father in “So, I Married An Axe Murderer.” I can still hear the old man yelling at his youngest son to move his gigantic cranium. Among the many words of wisdom spouted off in the movie:

Charlie's Father: “Oh, I hated the Colonel with his wee BEADY eyes! And that smug look on his face, 'Oh! You're gonna buy my chicken, OHHH!”
Charlie: “Dad, how can you hate...the Colonel?”
Charlie's Father: “Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes you crave it nightly!”

And that is how I came up with the name for my weblog. I have nothing personal against The Colonel or his chicken dynasty — honest. As for me, I’m a 26 year old guy living in Wisconsin. I’m married to the most gracious and loving woman in the world. We have a 2 year old son named Ethan, better known simply as “EC.” We have two pets: our cat Stripe (aka Pasty Gansta), and our dog Anakin (aka Mr. Smooth), a Weimaraner. I work as an IT marketing manager for a really cool company. I put my faith in Jesus Christ and His grace. If you sat me down at a table with a Mac, Windows PC, and Linux PC, I’d choose the Mac first, followed by the Linux box and then the Windows PC. I tend to be a conservative when it comes to politics, but I’m not a registered Republican. Politics interest me, but matters of the heart, life and faith rate much higher with me when it’s all said and done. I like to program in PHP for web work, tolerate Java, and reluctantly keep tabs on .NET and the rest of the Windows development world. I’m a fan of Open Source. I really like PostgreSQL, Linux, Apache, Mozilla, Filezilla, and MySQL in particular. You can see some of the music I like by checking out the links on the left. I’m into movies. I once considered going to film school. To give you my taste in movies, here is a terribly long list of movies that rank high (based on what I’ve rated at NetFlix – a cool service) on my list (in alphabetical order):

Obviously, I need to get out more. That’s more than enough info on me. Shhh…The Colonel might be listening.
