3 Things

Relay for Life

So Relay for Life is coming up pretty darn quick. As it turns out I forgot to start raising money. I have raised some money, but that money consisted of me sitting on my rump when somebody came up to me and threw some cash into my hand and said, “That’s for Relay for Life.”

I don’t want to give you a long winded sales pitch about why you should donate money for Relay for Life and tell you about how cancer has effected my life or the people in my life. I think I can distill the entire thing down to its essence.

“It is cancer, stupid!”

So if you have a couple extra bucks stuck in your couch cushions or have a bag full of beer bottles in your basement that need to be taken back and you don’t really have much use for that money and you aren’t mad that I just called you stupid, I would be in your debt if you would throw it my way for Relay for Life.

There are a couple of ways to do such a thing. First you can go to my Relay for Life page and donate there:


You can also just give me money when you see me.

Flood Pictures

From time to time I get asked if I have any flood pictures. But I will post the one flood picture I do have.


Son of Rambow

I’m pretty jacked up right now. One of two must see movies of 2008 has finally came to Ames.

Take a look at the trailer. (If you received this through a RSS Feed or e-mail, you will actually have to go to the website to view the video.)


I’m hoping to put together a small platoon of people to go see this masterpiece next week.

  1. Dear Sir Bennett, you once had me look at a collection of your pictures and pick which ones I liked the most. Without knowing I picked a couple of pictures that happened to be your father’s, which was kind of cool. However, that flood picture is getting up there. I’m a sucker for haunting things though.

  2. I do remember that. I hope that there are certain others out there that agree with your opinion.
