August Cactus Combat Multi-Gun Match

It's still a little bit hot and humid in Phoenix AZ right now, but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying some Gun Fun in the Sun.  Most of the guys conspired to shoot pistol-caliber carbine, but I merely brought mine to function test it, since there's a big match at Rio Salado at the end of September.

Naturally, the club is leaning on me to produce another kick-ass Halloween match.  Help me, Obi-Jon, you're our only hope!

O-I-H-O - The Real Story

No, Obama and his chums aren't misspelling "Ohio," they're just enjoying one of the President's "war stories."

BHO:  There I was, in the Sugar Bowl in my last game in a Buckeye uniform.  I saw a shift in their defense, so I audibled a quick slant to the running back.  Touchdown!

Guys 2 and 4:  No, we know you throw like a girl... run like one too!  You were scrambling in your own end zone and the entire press corps held the defense -- SAFETY!

Guy 1:  I wanna be a ballerina!  Look, I'm en pointe!

Shut Up, You Assholes!

As a former intel professional, I've personally seen/heard vital intelligence sources dry up because certain bureaucrat-weasels and politicians (but I repeat myself) couldn't keep the sources that took millions, nay, billions of dollars to exploit a properly guarded secret. Mewl all you want that the folks in this video might be personally or politically opposed to the present Administration... they're still right and I don't doubt they'd make the same accusations against a Republican administration that did the same thing. I can't give you any details, because I've signed Non-disclosure Agreements that would put me in Federal prison for the rest of my days... and because I know it's WRONG. Apparently, the current folks don't feel they're under either compulsion.

Six Blinks

I knew my 8-year-old SONY TV was trying to tell me something when the Stand By light started a string of six blinks this week. This morning it emitted a high-pitched whistle and when I cycled off the power, it failed to turn back on. So, do I go into the hole to get it repaired or replaced? Nope, I called DISH Network and cancelled my subscription. While I was being so pro-active with the hacienda budget, I got on-line and applied to re-finance my mortgage (coincidentally, I'm 15 years into a 30-year mortgage). That should cut my house payment in half... whoohoo! Net pay increase! Which is certainly handy because I've been floating a balance on my credit card over the past few months. Still living on modest means, but at least I still have the freedom to shoot movies and matches without giving it up to work for the Man. I better get working on those movies.... Anybody want a great big, dead SONY rear-projection TV, free to a good home (you carry it)?

48-Hour Movie

And my first non-student "above the line" credit working for someone else. So naturally there are two typos in my credit. That stuff happens when sleep is short.

Blackwood Premieres

Tonight was the on-line premiere of "Blackwood," a movie I helped make 2 years ago.  My "beauty shot" was cut to meet the needs of the movie, so here's my pretty face for your enjoyment.  There are deleted scenes on the DVD (soon to be available) as well as behind-the-scenes footage shot by yours truly.

Finally Some Shooting

 After running a camera all summer, it was fun to run and gun, even in the toasty moist Arizona sunshine.  My 9AR remains a jam-o-matic, so Jon lent me his.  And rather than watch a slow, fat, sweaty guy ooze through the course of fire, let's just watch Jon shoot a couple of stages.
