I was going to write about this yesterday, but my webhost was having some server problems that prevented me from adding anything to the site.
We had a weird random wind/dust storm here yesterday. It was sunny mostly, and I was sitting in my room working on the computer and noticed the house shaking. I looked out the window and it was SUPER windy. I really thought there was a tornado or something going on. I looked in the distance over the trees and seen huge clouds of dust in the air moving quickly. At first I thought it was some sort of huge dirt devil, but then noticed that there was a lot more dirt, an dirt every where, and it was moving quickly and not spinning.
I almost instinctively grabbed my camera and went outside, I went down the road some to catch the dirt clouds, but by the time I got there it was mostly cleared, but you could still see more in the distance.
It looked clear around me, but in reality it was much more dusty. The car kept filling with dirt, and I kept getting dirty in my mouth and eyes, was horrible but such a cool experience.
I’m not sure what caused this. There was a storm to the south as you can see in some of the pictures, so maybe some time of low draft or something. Not sure how fast the wind was going, but it was going super fast which you can see in the video.
I wanted to make a nice video of it, but what I took to capture video was my old droid, ha, and I hadn’t used it in a while and kept covering the lens with my finger, so I had to edit the video and ended up with only a small amount of footage.
Again, it was much crazier in person. Video or pictures don’t do it any justice. I wish I had gotten out with the film with the dirt was still thick though, but it was starting to clear up once I got out side.

These are after most of dust cleared (blew away), was still super windy. I thought this view was beautiful. I’m actually thinking about uploading these in high res because it was such a beautiful site and picture. I know the gallery I use limits the size , but you still get the idea.

I haven’t written in a while. Not much going on to talk about. But it’s been over a month that I’ve written something on here and I gotta add something fresh to the site, so what to talk about…?
This is an okay song by Blue October. It’s been in my head a lot lately. Was even in my dream the other night which was weird.
I need to quit doing anything on facebook. Takes me away from this site. I actually never really use facebook, I just get on sometimes to see what people are doing. I never played any games or anything on there.
Speaking of Facebook, I’ve been messing with Google+. To be honest I think it’s a huge boring let down. A lot of people I don’t know some how can add me. The site over all is just confusing. they say its facebook+twitter, but I don’t see it. Maybe the way it lets you follow certain people by putting them in groups? I always thought the facebook activity wall was already like twitter, but again, I rarely ever used twitter. Sometimes I’d randomly go to the site to read someone’s twitter wall thing, and had no idea what I was looking at. was always random like “@fishlover yes I like cheetos, but gold fish snacks r way better!” like what the hell?
I’ve been selling most of my sites again. I got rid of the MJHQ site for the final time. this time I’ve only sold the domain. I bought it back last year so I’d have legit use of the forum database, which I merged with Xello, so that’s all cool.
I’m trying to see some other domains if anyone is interested. I’m really not into the entire website making thing right now. I like messing with my own site here and there, but I dunno, I guess I’m just getting really old.
Domains I have that I’d be willing to sell are: ThenYouDie.com, rejx.com, wow I thought I had more than that. I have own probably 6 domains in total now, which isnt too much. I used to own much more. Mostly just bought and resold them though.
I need to start blogging about issues and stuff, ha but I hate forcing my opinion out there. But that’s the point of blogging. Then again I didn’t make this site to blog about what I think. I just created this site for the hell of it, but the point of the site is about me, so I dunno why I’m so weird. There isn’t a point to having a site if you aren’t going to write up stuff that people will read. So I dunno what I’m doing, but blah!
Here is a recent random picture of me I took and edited a lil bit.
