Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop a line to update you on some stuff that has been going on lately. I have been busy brainstorming on ideas for merchandise and Within the Trenches, the podcast that goes with the current items sold here. Along with that I have been dealing with some dental issues and I have been in a lot of pain. It’s been a hard week but I’m dealing with it and recovering to the best of my ability.
One of the big show ideas is to have a mixed panel where it would include police, fire, ems and another significant part of emergency services. The episode would give a balanced look at what goes on out on the road, field, and within dispatch. But in order to do this we need everyone’s help to raise at least $1,100. It would go to the extra mics, stands, cords, headphones, and a bigger headphone amp. The extra money will go to a bigger hosting package for our shows.
We have shirts, hoodies and mugs to choose from so help us out, we would really appreciate it! Just go to thejabberlogstore.com or you can even donate a little money by clicking the donate button on the right. Thanks!

The other day I was talking to my family about horror flicks and how I dig them so much. We were talking about some of the characters in the movies and the first character that came up was Pennywise the Clown. Do you know who this is? I’m sure you noticed the scary looking clown on the post and if you don’t know who this is, you need to rent the movie “IT” by Stephen King. We talked about how creepy he looks and that Tim Curry who played him did such a good job in simply being scary. I for one do not like clowns. Even when I was younger they gave me a bad feeling and what made it worse was the fact that my mom collected clowns. So here I am with a slight fear of clowns and my mom has a large cabinet full of them on display watching my every move. Years later my Tio Fernando decided to rent “IT” from Mr. Music’s, which was our local video store. I had never seen this movie and he kept saying,
“It’s a good one Richie. It has clowns…”
Sure he didn’t know that I really didn’t like clowns but I sat through the entire movie either way. I dug it then and I still do but it confirmed my reason for disliking clowns. I mean, what better way to strike fear into someone than by making a scary clown that mutilates kids? I know it tripped me out and I’m sure there are more people out there that were tripped out by good ole Pennywise. The next Boogeyman was Freddy Krueger. The Nightmare on Elm Street series is one of my favorite. Freddy was always scary when I was growing up. The guys face is completely burnt and he had a glove with razor sharp knives. What creeped me out the most back then was hearing him scratch everything in the broiler room. It gave me the chills and actually the girls singing that song was just as bad. Now days I simply dig the story but back then, it really got to me.
The last Boogeyman that came up was Jason from the Friday the 13th series. This is another one of my favorites and he was scary because he was beast. Plain and simple, he was a beast! People would run away from this guy and he would simply walk through the forrest and catch up to them and slash them up. What was weird to me about every movie was that it seemed as though everyone who died were in the process of having sex. Am I wrong here? It almost seemed as though the death scenes were used as an abstinence ad. The message was that if you decided to have sex before you were married you would be greeted by a man of Jason’s stature and you would be slashed and bludgeoned to death. It sounds stupid but go back and watch some of the flicks and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
All in all the characters had some good back story to them and with the addition of good special effects and gory scenes it made for good viewing. Out of all three of the boogeymen mentioned here I dislike Pennywise the most. If I could fight him I would acquire the size of Jason with the glove of Freddy and go to town on Pennywise! I know he’s just a character but if he were real I’d take him out. So now it’s your turn. Who were the Boogeymen of your childhood?
(Yes, I know that Jason was not the killer in the first movie but I didn’t want to post a death scene.)Post Views: 499

Good afternoon folks! It has been quite some time since my last Diaper Wars post and I apologize for that. Since my last post my wife has pretty much taken the reigns on our cloth diaper adventure. She has taken up with a gang of cloth diaper moms for play dates and I believe there was a gangland battle at a playground with a gang of disposable diaper moms but I cannot disclose the result of this. Also I’m just joking but it would be funny to see right? Anyway, my wife is trying new types of cloth like FuzziBunz Elite, bumGenius Freetime, and GroVia AIO’s with their awesome prints. Although my personal preference has been with the new AIO’s, my wife and I still use prefolds for nighttime dryness.
So now that we’re somewhat caught up, my daughter Lola is a week or so away from being 10 months. She’s eating some solid foods and for all you parents out there, you know this makes changing diapers a bit different. You no longer have a baby who is pooing in a paste like form. Now you have a baby who is dropping solids. Um…yes, I realize I’m being gross and a little graphic but it’s poo. We have all dealt with it and we all drop it so let’s continue.
The diapers I have changed lately have been soiled with one medium sized nugget. Sounds pretty easy right? Well for those who don’t use cloth diapers I will tell you this is very easy but instead of throwing the diaper away it must be rinsed out in to the toilet. Okay, so like I said, this is easy. You take the diaper to the bathroom, unhook the sprayer and rinse out the diaper. It’s simple but if you’re new to this then here’s a tip. DON’T BEND DOWN TOWARD THE TOILET! I bent down and I thought I was far enough but when that nugget hit the toilet the poo water splashed up by my mouth. I gagged, did the girly hand wave and about vomited in my mouth but I held it together. I finished what I was doing and yes, I washed my face about 100 times.
It’s a learning process and I’m sure that even the most experienced diaper sprayer has dealt with something like this. The experience has been a fun one and I will continue to learn with every change. I am going to do my best to keep up with Diaper Wars and I have some new ideas as well. I would like to do some informative podcasts and even some live broadcasts where other cloth users and those who are curious about it, can watch, interact and discuss topics. I think it would be a fun way to bring new people to the cloth side and share stories. Oh yeah, and be educational. Let me know what you think about the idea, if you would be interested in participating in something like this and some ideas on what to discuss. Have a good one and may the cloth be with you!Post Views: 579
