Neckdeep.net was launched February 6, 2001 as an online journal and sometime design project. This design was done a few years back and I've decided to start up again.
Currently based in San Francisco, CA, the site tends to be updated every few days...or when I have time. The name neckdeep was taken from a line in a Converge song entitled, Color Me Blood Red.

Sorry, We're Open.
The last time I wrote anything on Neckdeep was May 30th, 2009. I kept going on the image blog until April of last year, and then I just stopped. Having a three year old, a full-time job at Apple and the rest of life was too much. I did some Twitter and rarely hit the Facebook. I was overwhelmed.
But, for some reason, I've decided to start this thing again. Although sometimes I'm not sure why. I'm still at Apple, I'm still beyond busy...and now I'm 'Mr. Divorced Dad' in San Francisco. Weird to actually write that. Very weird.
I closed my Facebook account as it just seemed wrong for me. It's almost too much of life out there. I didn't like how much I checked it considering I barely ever posted. I was connected to people I didn't know and would get angry when people posted foolish things. Social media is a huge part of everyone's life now. Hard to imagine that when I started this site in February 2001, a time when few people even knew the term 'blog'. Now everyone posts their 'status' every ten minutes and life online is a a mainstream thing.
The best thing to come out of this site in the past ten years is looking back. There was also something satisfying about tracking things I enjoyed and the experiences I had. But that being said, I no longer want this open to the world. Friends and some family is fine by me.
The whole world is open source now...and I don't want to be. Any way...thanks for clicking.
A few things I've enjoyed lately...
Reviews have been mixed, but I loved this film. Of course I did...cars, quiet guy gone violent, etc. I even bought the soundtrack.
Patton Oswalt - Finest Hour LP
His new album is fantastic. It's strange to hear the crowd roar like a Steve Martin or Eddie Murphy size crowd, but the laughs keep coming. A genius of comedy. And if you haven't read Zombie Spaceship Wasteland...you are missing the fuck out.
