- Colin Noonan, one of my new roommates (and new friends), in his prayer before my birthday steaks.
Thanks, dude, the rapidly thinning hair and sore knees aren't enough of a reminder.

When I think of people passing away ... I think the best way to honor someone's life is to reevaluate your own life.
I'm fortunate in that I'm not going through this type of situation now, but when I am, I'll remember these wise words from a good friend going through a tough time.

It's raw, but amazing. Mumford tells yet another story in a beautiful, meaningful way. I can't wait to hear more from these guys.

I grew up a huge Duke fan thanks to my grandfather being an alumnus. That, combined with the fact that the Steelers are not on in phoenix, led to an interest in the ESPN special "Coach K's Record Climb." The following quote caught my ear:
"I like anger, anger destroys bad things."

The band's newest album, Ceremonials, is their sophomore effort. Conveniently, it came out last Tuesday, a day I was traveling back to Phoenix from San Diego. I picked it up and listened to it a couple times during my six hour drive. I'm going to have to listen to it a little more for a full opinion, but it is definitely very good. The following is the lead single off the album, "What the Water Gave Me." While the video doesn't do a whole lot for me, the song is incredible. Listen. Enjoy.

1. I witnessed a Yuma County employee in her government vehicle reading as she drove down the 60, at night, with her dome light on.
2. A large truck with a large fifth wheel trailer sped past me with many border patrol vehicles trailing it. The border patrol vehicles boxed the truck in, forcing it to pull over. I will be watching the local news to see if they mention exactly what that was all about.
