This is a very boring page.

I won't lead you on. This page is remarkably uninteresting. I used to have a nicer page, but I lost my account
on that server after a break-in, and since then this page has been temporary. Well, after realizing it had been
"temporary" for about two years, I just decided to make it my real page. And I don't have time to make it all
pretty and nice, so this is what you get until I do get time. :) Please note, it's been about fifteen years, and I still haven't had time.
A disclaimer: the sites below were created at various points in my life, and reflect my feelings and beliefs at the time of
their creation. I have not edited these blog-style/train of thought travel logs as they are my personal history; no matter what has transpired or changed in my
life since the time at which they were written, I would no more want to alter that history any more than I would rewrite a textbook about the Second
World War. Thanks for keeping that in mind!
You're probably here looking for one of several things:
So choose and go. Otherwise you'll just be stuck staring at this boring white page.
Other places you can go:
- Image Gallery. Various images, including
'da pugs' - Kira, Mao, and Mya.
- The Second Trip to Japan, circa 1998.
- The Third Trip to Japan starring Pat, Casey, Cyndy, and
myself in 1999/2000. No pictures. This one was a little more organized, and it was sent off a HPC and a PPC. I
must say that the Palm's batteries lasted longer. :) Oh, and it's the Third Trip because I don't have a log from
my first trip in 1994.
- Molly and Marc in Japan 2001-2002 The Fourth Trip to Japan...
- Marc's Fifth Trip to Japan 2004. A month I spent in Japan. Dozens upon dozens of pictures.
- Marc's First Trip to Europe 2005. I was in Europe for three weeks in January, 2005. Not done yet, may never be.
- Terri and Marc's German Excursion 2005. A two week trip I took to Germany and Austria in October, 2005.
Mostly just pictures this time.
- Marc's Sixth Trip to Japan 2006.You'd think I liked this place or something. Really short, but tons of good pictures.
- The Old Utter Confusion Web Site. The real one used to be elsewhere, but looks like it's vanished! Sorry! I
can't believe people still look here for Utter Confusion - this thing hasn't been updated in like a decade. :P
- Austin Fencers Club.
My last fencing club. I used to be at
UT on the team, but I graduated, was an assistant coach there, and
then I was there. I stopped fencing officially in 2000 (long story).
- The Internet Movie Database.
The greatest single invention since the beginning of motion pictures!
- The SR20DE/SE-R Source.
I used to be a big SE-R fanatic back in the day, but have since moved out of the modder "pocket-rocket" lifestyle and into a bigger, more comfortable Acura TL, named Sakaki.
I named my last SE-R Yuri, after one half of the Dirty Pair.
Beautiful and she can completely kick ass. :) I sold her to my friend Mark wimmer in Oklahoma. Yuri is also moderately modified from stock. Here's information
about that from my too-long SE-R mail sig from back in the day(translation for the unaware):
1993 Vail White Classic SE-R 83,000 miles & Counting
Front STB, Stillen Short Shifter, Hotshot Gen 3 Header
17° Timing, Fiamm Horns, Place Racing Mounts, Place CAI
RE730 205/50/15,1/3 ES Bushings,Goodrich SS Brake Lines
JWT ECU,ScrothRallye3Harness,200SX Wheels,AD22VF Brakes
Here are some images (thanks to Russell
Zotz) of Yuri at the 2000 Central Texas Nissan Meet on September 16,
And if you thought that was my FIRST SE-R, well, you're mistaken. I used to have an Aztec Red 1991
Sentra SE-R that went by the name of Sera. I got her brand spankin' new (39 miles on odometer when I drove
Sera off the David McDavid Nissan lot) in high school, shared her with my sister for a few years, and then she was
all mine. Well my parents', actually. I was determined to keep Sera all stock, but after getting great deals on
a POP charger, strut tower brace, and short shifter, she slowly began to get modded until I bought Yuri. Last
year, after 127,000 miles, I finally sold her to Kyle
Gilliand, ailing paint and all. You can always tell a '91 Aztec Red Nissan, because almost all of them
have lost their paint over time. I digress. Kyle has since turned Sera into a race car (which he calls The Little
Red Rabbit). The thumbnail on the left is a picture of
Sera at Buttonwillow, from sometime in September 2000. |
- The Space Channel 5 site. Damn cool video game, very addictive with
catchy music. It's been translated and released for the US market, although they changed the timing slightly.
I doubted it would be as cool in English, and I was right. :P It's decent, though.
- DDR Freak. Dance Dance Revolution, a really nifty game wherein you have to
tap pads with your feet in time to music matching those moving on the screen. I *love* this game, but alas, I'm not
as good at it as some of the people who visit DDR Freak. It's SCARY!
If you like DDR, and want to have a version with *every* song, this is
the way to go. All you need is a PC or Mac, a supported video card, and a
USB to Playstation adapter, and you're set.
Told you this was boring, didn't I?
