2014 is shaping up to just be pure awesome.

In May I went to Los Angeles and saw my favorite podcast, Hollywood Babble On, LIVE and got a shoutout from Kevin and Ralph. 

I also went to a special live preview of The Wil Wheaton Project that just happened to be while I was in town. 

We have tickets to go to Rose City Comicon in September where I am totally going to get my geek on.

The week before Rose City? Neil DeGrasse motherfucking Tyson is coming to MY HOME TOWN to speak. Of course I have tickets. It’s going to be amazeballs. 

And tonight I just bought tickets to see Book of Mormon when it comes to Spokane in August. This is probably the most amount of awesome stuff we have ever done in our 10 years together.

It’s okay not to know all the answers. It’s better to admit our ignorance than to believe answers that might be wrong. Pretending to know everything closes the door to finding out what’s really there.

Neil Degrasse Tyson’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

This is a great show, and if you aren’t already, try to find a way to watch it. If you already are or are interested, also check out startalkradio.net. Dr. Tyson is one of my greatest inspirations.

"WE ARE DEAD STARS…looking back up at the sky. Everything you are, literally the iron in your blood, comes from the instant before a star dies. In the case of the most massive stars, the core of the star collapses and sets off the most violent, brilliant reaction we know of called a supernova reaction. Everything outside the element iron, everything heavier, all the gold, all the silver, all the lead, all the uranium - that’s formed in that supernova explosion. A single star will glow as brightly as an entire galaxy, as hundreds of billions of stars, in that moment of death and and that’s what you are. That is literally what your body is, that instant of death.
