Johnny Cash, Hurt

In 2002 less than a year before he died, Johnny Cash recorded and made a music video of the song Hurt originally by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.

The video became regarded as his epitaph, and is pretty incredible.

Read here what Trent Reznor had to say about the song and video:

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Yesterday was my birthday.  I like birthdays.  People give you crap just because you were born.

This year I got Spiderman 3 for the Xbox 360, 3 piano books, an Amazon gift card, a pedal that is just like a real piano pedal for my digital piano, a giant cookie, money, Uncle John’s Fast-Acting Long-Lasting Bathroom Reader, and a gun.  Here is a picture of the gun I got.

It’s a Leinad Model DD, 45 Long Colt/.410 3 inch.  Kind of a fun little gun.  Can’t wait to go take it for a test shoot.  Thanks to everyone.

Avalanche

It’s been kind of slow lately at work, so I’ve taken the time to learn Silverlight.  This is my first game written entirely in Silverlight.  I hope you like it as much as I do.  And yes I know it’s too big to fit in here.  I didn’t create it with this in mind, I just thought I’d share.


Use either "a" and "d" or the left and right arrow keys to move. The objective is to stay alive.
