China Trip Pictures

I'm still planning on writing more about our trip to China, but things are busy now that we're back, and it's going to take some time to reflect (and to actually write about it) before I do that. But in the meantime, I've gone through hundreds of pictures and chosen my favorites from our trip. You can check them out here or in this slideshow:

You can see information for any of these pictures by clicking on "Show info" on the upper right while watching the slideshow, or you can just go to flickr and look at them there.

If for some reason that's not enough and you want more, then you can go here. There are folders for each city we visited, as well as a "Complete" set of all the pictures I uploaded from our trip.

Thanks for reading and checking out the pictures--I appreciate it! Have a great week!

August 2012 Pictures of the Day

I realize that it's now almost the end of September, but we were in China for three weeks and I got behind on some things in the meantime. Anyhow, I finally got August's Pictures of the Day lined up and ready to go. Have a look if you'd like, and check back in a few days for pictures from China, as well as a "trip report." 


 Thanks for reading!

A Real Meat Loaf / Meatloaf Monday!

It's Monday so of course like every Monday, it's also Meat Loaf Monday, where we on Sitzblog celebrate the music of Meat Loaf (even if we're not consistent enough to write a Meat Loaf Monday post every single Monday). However, we coincidentally got invited to dinner by our friends Dustin and Sam, and guess what they were serving: damn right! Meatloaf!

So, to commemorate the event, I thought I'd share this classically weird Meat Loaf video for "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)," even though it's a cool, early fall night here. It takes about a minute before the song even starts, but that's part of the beauty of Meat Loaf. Enjoy!

Thanks also to Dustin and Sam for the invite and the tasty Meatloaf!

Sitzbook: "The Dirty Parts of the Bible" By Sam Torode

This will be a short review. I actually only got this book because it turned out to be free on the Kindle. I have Amazon Prime, so I can borrow one book from their "Lending Library" for free every month. This book had good reviews so I decided to check it out; as it turned out, it was free free, and it didn't even count towards my monthly book rental. So that was cool.

The story itself is also cool. I guess it follows a Biblical story (I seem to have a lot of these religious-sounding books this year, for some reason), but it takes place in the 1930s. It was pretty entertaining and well-written, and it was generally entertaining. It didn't especially light a fire under my ass, though, especially when the story got taken to Texas. But that's just how stories go sometimes.

Oh, and it's not actually dirty. It's very arguable that this blog is dirtier in almost any given aspect of dirtiness. Just as a disclaimer.

In any case, I liked it, especially at $0.00. It's very difficult to criticize any book at that price. If you're interested, you can check out the preview in the video above. I hadn't actually known that they were making trailers/previews for books these days until I saw one for The Visible Man, the great Chuck Klosterman book I read last year. Here's that trailer, in case you're interested (I'd also definitely recommend the book):

So, that's it for now. Thanks for reading!
