BOO!

Unless you’ve been under a rock, you know today is Halloween – the day where the freaks come out and we also spend the day trying to be freaks! I hope everyone has a happy and safe halloween – and gets tons of candy! I had tons of candy, but I gave it all away to friends and family already… My work gave out about 6-10 cases to each employee because we had so much Halloween overstock. We send out samples for one of our clients, and they ended up not sending out as much as we had stock… So the client approved to give it to the employees! Crazy, eh?

If you’re stuck with nothing to do – check out Blogcritics for some great thoughts and ideas for today… Great reviews on movies, music, news, and more about Halloween all here! There are over 70 posts there, all from great bloggers like myself!

Again, be safe, and above all HAVE FUN!

Updates? We don’t need no stinkin’ updates!

Ran into an old email friend last night at a bar out in Wyandotte – he’s actually a good friend of the Karaoke host, who’s also a good friend of mine… He ran into my site a year or so ago while looking for info on Jim (the karaoke host, and former lead singer of Melting Pit/IVPlay) , and we emailed back and forth for a bit… haven’t heard anything from him for a while, then after I sang one time he came up to me and said “You must be Zaldor!” – And he told me who he was and all… then he wondered why I haven’t updated this site much… well… been busy!! LOL Seriously…

So it was good to put a face to the name, and he’s a good singer too!

And what is exactly up with my Karaoke career? Well, i’m doing mostly country songs, and being told each night how good I sound… now if I could just find a band that wants to do both country and rock songs, I’d be set… lol

One More

Ok, sharing one more picture… This one I took while we were riding the carosel at the Detroit Tigers game that we went to, but got rained out – We still had a blast, and Trent even got a ball signed by a KC Royals player!

My son

Just a pic that I thought I’d share from a month ago or so… Both his mom and I have exposed Trent to computers since he was probably 6 months old… He’s great on the internet, he loves to play games, and I have no problems with him being on a computer alone!

TJ Future Gamer

Now he’ll be a game nut! He loves Halo, Star Wars Battlefront, and of course Shrek 2… Do I dare show him Doom 3? JUST KIDDING!!! 😉

Hey some good news!

I’m so geeked! Was posting at one of my fave local band’s web site, and posted the title of a Stabbing Westward song (Wasted) – and thought I should see how long it’s been since their last album came out… So I decided to head over to Amazon and looked at Stabbing Westward , noticed that it’s been 3 years since their last self titled album came out… checked out the ‘Essential’ release that came out last year… Scrolled down to the reviews and the first one mentions that the lead singer, Chris, is with a new band – The Dreaming!! Talk about something cool! I headed over to their site, and the music is awesome!!! It’s got a hard edge to it, and still has some of the SW feel to it too… Unfortunately they don’t have the full songs streaming, but the little tease they offer of the 4 is enough to get me hooked! Now if I can only get them to come out to Michigan and play a few gigs – maybe even come out and play with one of the local bands here!

Ya never know… Chris, drop me a line – we’ll talk! 😉

Who the hell thought of titles?

Ya know…. I’m really tired of it all… Can I get a vacation ?

On the good news – Trent scored an awesome 9 out of 10 correct on this spelling test this week!!!! CONGRATS TRENT! Keep up the great work!!! I know you can do it!!

I was riding him all weekend with his words, and spent about 2-3 hours with him Sunday, made sure he knew those words!! I’m sure he’ll continue this upward trend, and will be spelling with the best of them – he’s a smart smart boy!

Other than that incredible news, not much else going on… working, Karaoke, that’s about it. Trying to get my life in order – hopefully will have that done someday… I hope…

Haven’t done one of these in a while

Found this at a couple sites – thought I’d give it a try, actually not surprised at the results…

Blue
What Color is Your Brain?

At work or in school: I like to be with people, sharing with them, inspiring them, and helping them. I work and learn best when I can take into consideration people and the human element. I flourish in an atmosphere of cooperation.

With friends: I always look for perfect love. I am very romantic, and I enjoy doing thoughtful things for others. I am affectionate, supportive and a good listener.

With family: I like to be happy and loving. I am very sensitive to rejection from my family and to family conflicts. I really like to be well thought of and need frequent reassurance. I love intimate talks and warm feelings.

New WP

Just upgraded to the latest and greatest WordPress – mostly security and bugfixes… but still always great to have the latest…

Things at the Zaldor home front are alright – my son is doing pretty good in school, except he’s having a struggle with spelling… but we’re continuing to work on it with him… He’s a smart boy, he’ll get it – I have extreme faith in him. I’m willing to work with him until he gets it, just like my parents did with me… The scary thing is, a lot of how he’s acting when trying to learn – it’s exactly how I was when I learned my spelling… *shudder* But I got it, and I know he will too. I love him and willing to try anything for him.

I don’t wanna give a title.

Hi ya all you wonderful peoples in wonderland… I’m just chuggin’ along here, my karaoke-addicted ass and all… My son is with me this weekend, and we plan on having fun… tomorrow (or today, actually) is his 2nd week of basketball practice – I plan on having pictures from that… and we also plan on having fun at the LAN party tonight too.. it’ll be his first LAN party that he participates in… should be interesting… Tomorrow we’ll be chillin’ mostly, practicing spelling words, and winding down the weekend. Any way we can get weekends extended, by chance? I wish someone would pass a law that would extend the weekends an extra day or two… maybe we should consult Kerry on that one, eh?

Anyways – it’s bed-time here at the Zaldor home… have a good nite.

Local Bloggers!

There was an article in the local paper here yesterday (Detroit Free Press) about local bloggers – worth a read if you’re interested in Michigan Bloggers 😉 And no, I’m not in the article… Thank goodness!

But Melissa is, from ‘Anything But Ordinary‘ (top of my blogroll)!!

Here I am!

Alright, so it’s been unusually long since I’ve put a damn thing in here… and it doesn’t seem like I’m gonna be putting much entertainment stuff like I wanted to… so what I’m going to do is revert this site back to kinda how it used to be… my thoughts, my happenings, etc… just not going to be exactly like before, but similar…

So what has Zaldor been up to? Well, today (and yesterday, and tomorrow) i’m in Ann Arbor for Training on new software for work… Pretty interesting stuff actually, this afternoon will be the meat and tomorrow will be more of that too… I’m in the same building I once worked in about 6 years ago, and doing a little catching up with old co-workers… pretty interesting to see that some people haven’t changed in 6 years, and some are still even at the same job… I guess some of my stuff that I implemented long ago is still in use today, hows that for a legacy… lol

Having a great time with my son, this past weekend we went to the Tiger game and checked out some cheezy life size board game exibit at a local mall – i’ll have pictures up sometime soon (I promise!)… I’m doing Karaoke almost 1-3 times a week, and I am even considering learning the guitar… I managed to get one from a friend a week ago, and I’m working on tuning it up – and learning. My goal is to be playing at the Musicians Guild camp outing next summer! My love life is kinda stagnant, and that’s how I really want it to be for a while… Yes, I’m dating – but taking my time, I’ve learned a lot in the past year – and putting those lessons to good use.

Lets seee…. My job, I’ll be working at the same place for almost 1 year, and seems to continue to get better (as I’m being trained this week to take on more responsibilities)… I need to get a new car soon, my current one is on it’s last leg…

That’s about it, tonight I’m going to take it easy – might pick up the guitar when I get home from training 🙂 Tomorrow I get to spend the evening with my son, looking forward to it – He’s in 1st grade now, and at a new school too – he seems to enjoy it, and I hope he’ll continue to do well in school!! 🙂

Also, I’m thinking about getting rid of my zaldor.com email address, or changing it – I’m getting way to much spam shit (about 300 spams a day!) – so if you want my addy, comment or email me at my soon to be old one: lesATzaldor.com!

Hope to be posting a little more frequently here too… of course, that could change!

I wanna live

Sometimes I feel like I need to shake myself, to wake myself:
I feel like I’m just sleep walkin’ through out life.
It’s like I’m swimmin’ in an ocean of emotion,
But still, somehow, slowly goin’ numb inside.
I don’t like who I’m becomin’, I know I’ve gotta do somethin’,
Before my life passes right by.

I want to cry like the rain, cry like the rain,
An’ shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin’.
Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin’,
Fight with the devil an’ go down swingin’.
Fly like a bird, roll like a stone,
Love like I ain’t afraid to be alone.
Take everything that this world has to give:
I wanna live.

Sometimes I wonder why I work so hard to guard my heart.
Well, I hardly feel anything at all.
I’ve spent my whole life buildin’ up this ivory tower.
Now that I’m in it, I keep wishin’ it would fall.
So I can feel the ground beneath me, really taste this air I’m breathin’,
And know that I’m alive.

I want to cry like the rain, cry like the rain,
An’ shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin’.
Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin’,
Fight with the devil an’ go down swingin’.
Fly like a bird, roll like a stone,
Love like I ain’t afraid to be alone.
Take everything that this world has to give:
I wanna live,
I wanna live.

Somethin’ deep inside keeps sayin life is like a vapor:
It’s gone in just the twinklin’ of an eye.

I want to cry like the rain, cry like the rain,
An’ shine like the sun on a beautiful mornin’.
Sing to the heavens like a church bell ringin’,
Fight with the devil an’ go down swingin’.
Fly like a bird, roll like a stone,
Love like I ain’t afraid to be alone.
Take everything that this world has to give.
I wanna take every breath I can get:
I wanna live.

Yeah, yeah

I want to live – Josh Gracin

It’s about time!

Just found out last night that today they are releasing the first and second seasons of one of my favorite sci-fi TV shows – SLIDERS!! It’s about time they release ’em, I hope they release all the other seasons too! I know what I’ll be buying, or getting for birthday/christmas!

I’ve been a Sliders fan since it started, followed it to Sci-Fi Channel – and have even read some of the fan episodes that are out there!

Very cool!

Check out this video that a friend of mine sent to me – very cool how he did it (using a Nikon Coolpix 775 camera!!)

Firefox

Decided to take the plunge away from IE for a while, and try out FireFox! First impressions are very good – it’s a slick browser, quick – and I like it! It’s a nice change from the old IE… and it’s customizable too!
