Good evening folks! The AudioVillains are back with episode 11 of the JCast on Jabber Log! This week, Eddie and I took the reigns as a duo and although our third AudioVillain Mike had a prior engagement we kicked ass and took names. We used the upstairs portion of the Ingarden Studios and I must say that the audio came out a lot better than past episodes. Our topics this week dealt with politics, movies, music, and a little bit of Jabber Log’s Tech Thursday. On September 12 2012, Apple revealed the new iPhone 5 and made their new operating system iOS6 available to developers. The new iOS will not be available to the public until next week but if you want to get it early you can head over to lifehacker.com for links to every iDevice and download it for free. We also mentioned the upcoming movie DREDD 3D and the awesome song on the trailer by La Roux (Skream Remix) called In for the Kill. Make sure to check it out, listen to the podcast and share to everyone you know! Cheers!

2011 was a great year for me. So many things happened to my family and I this year that it’s hard to capture them all in one post. First off I have to mention a moment that changed my family. That change is sitting in her Bumbo chair drooling and smiling at me. That change is none other than my daughter Lola. On August 29th, 2011 my beautiful princess made her appearance. She’s officially 4 months now and since her birth so many things have happened. She’s growing fast and she looks more and more like her mother every day. She coos, giggles, and smiles all the time. I can’t help but be taken back whenever she flashes a smile at me. She’s funny in the little things that she does. My world has definitely changed and I’ll be the first to admit that I am wrapped around her little finger.
Before our bundle of joy was born, I took a supervisor position in dispatch. It has been great and I work with an excellent group of people. I also started Jabber Log around April 2011 and to date I have over 13,700 hits with 122 subscribers on WordPress. 37 Twitter followers and 101 Facebook fans follow up those numbers. I started Jabber Log as something small where I would share dispatch stories and news from around the world but it turned into something more. As I generated post after post I quickly fell into my first passion, writing. I have always loved writing but as I got into design and started school, my writing took a back seat.
With Jabber Log my passion returned. My blog turned into somewhat of a self-discovery. I have shared many stories with all of you. Some stories are ones that no one knew about. I opened the floodgates to the life experiences that made me who I am today. I don’t know a lot of people who would share so much with the public but I felt the need to let everything out. I find writing to be very therapeutic and Jabber Log has helped me express my feelings. I have held back stories involving my eldest son Richie in the past but with Jabber Log I have been able to get them out and share them. About two or three months ago I saw my son. It was bittersweet and although I wish I could have said something to him, I know that one day I will get the chance to tell him everything I have ever wanted to say to him. It may sound weird to share all this with total strangers but I see it as a tool to help someone else out there. Maybe someone else is dealing with something similar to what I have experienced. Reading my posts may be able to help that person.
Whatever the case may be, my blogging has become something more than expected and it has opened up some great opportunities. With Jabber Log, I have been given the chance to explore the world of cloth diapers, promote a talented artist, and design banners for the likes of Farmington High School Choir, and Jackie Green of WGRD, a local Rock Radio Station. I have also added extra writers to Jabber Log and we can only go up from here and into 2012. Thank you to my family, the Jabber Log writing team, my friends, the talented Maddie Larkin, Candis of EcoBuns, the always awesome Sheri Jaffurs, and the beautiful and outgoing Jackie Green for allowing me to express myself through them in order to promote and spread the word on everything they do. 2011 comes to end but 2012 holds so much more. New and grand opportunities are coming my way and although I cannot speak of them at this moment, I can at least say that they are superb and I will share it with everyone as soon as I can. Happy New Year and here’s to another excellent year!Post Views: 299

Hello everyone and Happy Friday the 13th from Jabber Log and none other than Jason Voorhees. Today is the day that we try to be a bit more careful. We play it off that there is nothing wrong with this day but in the back of our mind we fear it. We see it as the day of bad luck, the day where everything could potentially go wrong. Maybe that’s why Jason picked this day to kill his victims. I mean, you have to admit that they had some pretty bad luck or maybe there really is something to this day that makes it so shitty for some people.
I was doing a little research and I found a site called hauntedbay.com. There is a section dedicated to Friday the 13th and some interesting incidents that have occurred in the past. Apparently Cain killed Abel on a Friday the 13th, Judas who was the 13th guest who betrayed Jesus who was then crucified on a Friday. Weird huh?
Well here are a few more interesting yet creepy facts. In a hangman’s noose there are 13 twists of rope and 13 gallows. Woman drivers have a 64% increased chance of death when driving on this day. Is this not nuts? Finally the great flood occurred on a Friday and the Apollo 13 shuttle also suffered from this number. Call it what you will but this day sucks a fat veiner! A special thanks to hauntedbay.com and if you are in the woods today watch out for Mr. Voorhees and any females out there driving, please be careful. Happy Friday the 13th my fellow Jabber Loggers.
