I am immortal.
Well, at least my data is.
Blog posts, emails, social media…
Videos, photos, and audio recordings.
Government and industry data.
Medical and financial records.
Radio and TV broadcast around the earth and into space.
How much will be left after I’ve gone?
Before any of these technological marvels.
It was the memory of family and friends where one lingered.
That’s still true today.
I think I may prefer that to immortality.

Five Star VO
Ten years ago, my career in VO got a boost of NASA proportions.
Through the kindness of a VP at Disney and five amazing animation stars, I landed my first agent.

Ever watch a commercial and think “How the heck did *this* get approved?!?!?”
Below is a short collection of commercial snafus. Each of these went through the many layers of creative and corporate approval before being released in their obviously flawed form.
… I still don’t have a clue how that happens!

Web Site Traffic and a Turkey for SEO
How can a picture of a Turkey with some guns drive traffic to a web site?
It’s a mystery well worth investigating…
Back in November, 2013, I posted a song parody “
Herbert The Homicidal Turkey” for Thanksgiving. It featured the following picture of the felonious fowl:
Herbert The Homicidal Turkey
Fast forward to today… not a day goes by that Joe’s Dump doesn’t get at least a few hits for the song.
So, what gives? Where are the hits coming from?
(tips and tricks from a couple of foodies)
My wife and I eat out a lot. So how do we stay healthy when dining on restaurant food?
When ordering a sandwich, skip the mayo, aioli, pesto, cream cheese or other spreads.
This cuts down the calories significantly.
If you’d like some for flavor, ask for it on the side, then just use it sparingly.
The big mistake people make when ordering something healthy like a salad is to trust the restaurant to put on the dressing. Don’t do it!
For most of our salads, we order them undressed, and use a bit of balsamic vinegar for flavor (no oil).
You might also get the dressing on the side. Choose a lighter dressing like a vinaigrette rather than a ranch or other creamy dressing.
Grease Me Up!
If you have a choice between grilled, sauteed or fried, go for grilled.
Second best would be sauteed.
Make sure they don’t add extra butter or oil.
Have sandwich bread toasted, no butter. Skip the “grilled bread” or “Texas toast”.
Bread that’s been slathered in butter and grilled is just a greasy, gross mess to eat! Get sauces and dressings “on the side” (or skip them altogether)
Having pasta? Watch out for the heavy cream-based sauces and cheese. Go for a lighter choice like tomato sauce or primavera.
Watch the salt! Eating out can also introduce a lot of salt into your diet. When possible, get food without the extra salt. This can be difficult, especially in soups and sauces.
Choose your restaurant wisely. Some places are just easier to eat healthy at – make a not of those, and frequent them more often.
Desserts are fine, in moderation. Just don’t have one with every meal. Order something small… or better yet, share with a friend!
Managing your weight can be a difficult proposition when eating out. But it’s not impossible if you’re aware of the pitfalls and follow a few simple rules.

Quantum Human Entanglement
a mostly non-scientific, unverifiable theory by Joe J Thomas
Hook Me Up!
Connection. As humans we seek it on a variety of levels. Be it spouses, family, friends. And on a wider view, pets, nature and even inanimate objects (got a favorite chair or mug?).
But what if humans, and everything else for that matter, are already connected on a much deeper level?
No, I’m not talking about “
The Force“… although, by the time I’m done I might be.
Let me start at the beginning.
