The original legion of boom

I’ve been blessed (or cursed) with growing up with Seahawks football. It’s been more downs than ups but there have been some amazing ups.

The Legion of Boom in the 2013/2014 season is wonderful, but I remember all the other ones…

  1. Kenny Easley, the baddest, hardest-hitting safety anyone ever saw (even Ronnie Lott said so).
  2. Fredd Young… best football hit ever?
  3. Hell, receivers were part of it too… Steve Largent,

Go Hawks!


Lloyds Hotel of Möllerfjorden on the arctic island chain of Svalbard, Norway

Writes contributor Lauren Farmer:

This “5 star” hut was built in 1912 (or some say 1925) by the shipping company North German Lloyd as an emergency shelter after they took over the possessions of the 1910 “Zeppelin” Expedition, which had occupied the area. 

I’ve been fortunate enough to see it twice and am still amazed it’s stocked with unopened bottles of vodka! And plenty of 40 year old magazines.

More here.

Honestly… how cool is this? Just freakin’ awesome. 


For the film the city of Troy was built on the Mediterranean island of Malta, however the walls of the city were built in Mexico. (x)

Troy (2004)

Hard to recall, but was “Troy” one of the top 10 worst movies ever? It sure destroyed a lot of love from the Greek classic. Wow that was bad.

My new way to blog – oldest first

Generally most people blog the news… that is something flashes by, you jump on it, comment on it, and then move on. That’s what I generally do as well.

I stumbled across my Pocket account recently. And there I found hundreds of articles I had flagged for the past few years. They range from the latest health news to Yahoo execs moving around (a little more poignant this week than last apparently), etc.

Rather than write about the current news, I’ve decided to write from the oldest first. This gives me a little more perspective on the article (although it also assumes I can remember why I flagged the article earlier). Let’s see how this goes for the next month or so.
