First YouTube Submission
October 29th, 2006 | View Post

Since YouTube has now taken the web by storm, I wanted to play around with it a little bit. This is the first video that I uploaded to it after coming back from Ft. Stockton for a little mancation.

I titled it "Barham Knocks Out Baby Bluey".

And to those people that think it's wrong to pretend fight with a doll because it somehow symbolizes that I advocate hitting babies. You're right, it does. And go fuck yourself.

Preston's Addition Panorama
October 29th, 2006 | View Post

When we got back from our Ft. Stockton Mancation I did some exploring of Preston's new home addition. He's been pretty excited to get this thing going for awhile so it was great to see so much progress on it.

I shot dozens of pictures of it and used some new panorama software to stitch all of them together.

Fractured Hand
October 23rd, 2006 | View Post


A little part of my bone that evidently chipped away from the main thumb.
While playing an indoor soccer game, I had the pleasure of playing goal. If you've never seen an indoor game before, it's tremendously faster than outdoor soccer. The field is about the same size as a hockey rink and the out-of-bounds rules are similar; the ball can be played off of the walls. While the net is a little smaller to defend, the shots tend to come from much closer in.

It all happened so quickly that I'm not positive of the specific details, but I essentially charged for a ball in the box and right as I grabbed it, had the pleasure of having my hand kicked by the offensive player. After the swelling remained for a few days, I headed over to the urgent care facility to have it checked out.

It turned out that I had a small chip in the bone, though it wasn't a huge deal. After a couple of days of keeping it compressed and icing it, the swelling was gone. It only took a couple of weeks to resume full use of the hand.

I was particularly impressed how the urgent care facility provided me with a digital copy of the x-rays and a program from which to view them (albeit Photoshop works too).
