I Am About Done With WordPress Sucking

I have no idea what is going on with this thing, but as soon as I figure out something, this will be back to normal. I’m also working on a brand new brodyharper.com, so hopefully that will be up and running in a day or so.As for now, I’m mad at WordPress for being lame for three days now.



A Secondary Disease?!

syringe.jpgRemember Dr. Ish Pendi? Most of you weren’t around when I blogged about him, but he was the “Rock Doc” that came to the busses while I was on the tour, gave me a shot in the butt and some antibiotics in a bottle with a label that looked like he printed at home. Long story short, the pills never worked, I was sick the entire tour, two months of feeling miserable, until I borrowed some different antibiotics from someone else on the tour that seemed to work.

So now a couple months has passed, whatever that was that I had has seemed to pass, and I had completely forgotten about Dr Ish Pendi, until today. I woke up to find this email in my inbox from a comment on that same post:

Did this Dr. Pendi give you antibiotics that were large blue oblong tablets? He came to my hotel room, gave me the same shot and antib’s and I now have a secondary disease from them. Suffering for over 3 months.

Hmmm. Large, blue, oblong pills? Check. Shot in the butt? Check. Secondary disease? What?!! I don’t think I have a “secondary disease”, but how do I know? Well I know that the pills I took didn’t do anything to fix anything. I also know that I was sick until I took someone else’s antibiotics, and that was the only thing that seemed to help.

All of the sudden my brain is starting to realize, “Wait, have I felt good since? Did I ever get better from any of that? Why did I pay $415 to get a shot in the butt and never feel better? Do I have some “secondary disease” that some weirdo in L.A. gave me from a shot?” You know, things like that.



Is WordPress Screwed Up For Everybody…

The Missing Face

mf_logo.jpgLast night Kristin and I and our friends from California downloaded and watched a new short documentary from the guys who stared in and created “Long Way Round”.

The site explains: “Ewan and Charley first established their close relationship with UNICEF during their epic round the world bike trip Long Way Round. They were touched and impressed by the work that UNICEF do and have built steadily on this partnership to the point where they wanted to help raise awareness of children affected by AIDS on December 1, World AIDS Day.”

After we watched it, the four of us sat in silence for a few minutes all realizing how massive of a problem AIDS really is and how absurd it is that it’s only been within our lifetime that AIDS has become an epidemic that has and will completely change the world. We talked about statistics that our minds couldn’t even wrap around, and how little is seems that everyone is doing. The conversation went from AIDS in Africa to children slavery in India, to the mistreatment of female children in China and back. We talked about the desperate poverty of several of these nations and how American capitalism plays such a huge role in keeping other nations from thriving.

The part that turns my stomach about the whole thing is that so many of the issues in the world are so closely connected with sex. When did sex become such an important thing, that women would be forced to live in fear of any man that might want to take advantage of them and give them AIDS at any moment? When did sex become so important to people that children would be bought and sold as sex slaves to someone who decides that is what they want? How much of these issues would end if sex was as it was created? I know it sounds “flowery” and “Christian” but I think there is really something to it.

Anyway, check out the video. It’s only five bucks, and it’s worth the hour that you will spend watching it. There are so many ways to get involved, and whether it’s UNICEF or Compassion, or anything else, there’s no reason anyone is doing nothing. This World is too messed up to sit around and cover our eyes.

Planet Earth

bbc_video_planet_earth_dvd__1___large_.jpgI’m a pretty big geek when it comes to natures shows, and since we got rid of our cable, we don’t have the Discovery Channel, or Animal Planet.

One thing that I have been wanting to check out for a while now, but haven’t been able to is Discovery Channel’s Planet Earth. I have heard it’s amazing, I have watched a bunch of clips online, but have never actually seen any of the show. One of the gifts that I got for Christmas that I am pretty excited about is the entire series on DVD.

Ever since I was a kid I can remember being fascinated by watching animals do what they do. And even now if there is some nature show on I am totally captivated. Remember Ranger Rick? I loved it. And from what I can tell our kids are pretty in to watching nature shows and reading about animals too. Most likely it’s because I am always convincing them that nature stuff is awesome, but I am pretty excited to eventually sit down with the boys and get our Planet Earth on.

Have you seen it?
