This is my attempt to create some interesting musings, uberservations and, perhaps, insights on both my personal and professional life.

Controversy Casts Shroud Over KroBlog

After thousands of KroBlog readers and loyalists downloaded, and subsequently attempted to redeem, a free iced-coffee offer from Starbucks, the national chain removed the offer from the internet. The chain claims that the offer was never meant for national consumer consumption, but rather meant for friends and family in the Southeast region of our fine country.

The Kroblog vows to stay on top of this developing story.

Mohawk and a Friend on the Street Asking Questions

Friends of the KroBlog, I bring you two more vids by two masters of cinematography.

My friend, Mark Larkin, produced this fine video featuring his kids lip syncing, dancing, and receiving mohawks to the tune of "Tribute" by Tenacious D. Very funny stuff.

Also, John Friend walks the streets of San Francisco, asking, "What would you legalize, if you could...?"

Check 'em both out - very strong efforts and they both receive the KroBlog seal of approval...and not just because I happen to like the directors/producers/stars.

Lastly, because we at the KroBlog value our customers, I would like you all to enjoy an iced coffee from Starbucks, on the house.

We care...really we do.

My friend, Nate Tuck, is a talented director, producer and actor. He has produced a very funny and very poignant 10 minute video/story on YouTube call ReuniteD.

Take some time to watch it. It's really well done and worth your time. I give you the KroBlog promise.

Bankus Ruptus

Here's an interesting tid bit...

"Bankruptcy comes from ancient Rome. Merchants used to operate from a 'bankus' - a sortof workbench or counter. If they couldn't pay their bills, the local authorities would come over and break their bench - bankus ruptus. In England, they kept the bankruptcy procedures left behind by the Romans after the Romans left, even the part where they sold the bankrupt person into slavery. Only, it wasn't slavery anymore, it was indentured servitude. And many were sold into indentured servitude in the colonies."
