Todd Hendricks. Finally, a Blog All About Me! I Know What You're Thinking. It's About Time. Am I Right? Maybe Not. You Never Know!

(everythingtoddhendricks.com)--- As I am, you're probably wondering, who is this Todd Hendricks character, this guy who blogs about politics, entertainment & sometimes sports once a week or so? Well, it's time to find out. Am I just another regular Joe like any other trying to make it in these wintery economic climes, or am I something different altogether? I suppose that's up to you to decide. Well, on the one hand, I am like everyone else who's trying to stay afloat financially in this age of uncertainty, hoping our new President is right in his plan to unite the country & solve a lot of these pesky problems that are not going to go away by themselves. On the other hand I wonder about things like, how can People Magazine in the same issue say that Harry Connick Jr. has moobs but calls President Obama's much rounder & fuller set of cans World Class Pecs? Can you make the distinction between the two? Why is this important to me? Well, it isn't really. See, I'm the kind of guy who can't take a dump without having a tabloid to read, & People is the perfect periodical to read during this very private time. When I read that they were disparaging Harry but complimenting Obama for virtually the same physical characteristic, well, I couldn't just sit idly by. I had to take decisive action. & What's up with all of those motorcycles hanging around Obama? Because, I happen to know for a fact that most bikers are boob men, so naturally they would gravitate towards the 2nd most powerful set o' jugs in all the land. The 1st belonging to of course, Kim Kardashian, hello!

Okay, enough about that crap. I don't know, just the thought of man boobs was funny to me for that brief moment. Sue me. I like to think I'm a laid back easy going guy but there is so much crap happening in the world that I feel like I need to say something about it. It's not a very original concept @ this point in time, but a blog is the perfect format for it. With all the political upheaval & unrest in the world I like to think I take an active part in society as opposed to just being an observer. (Though I do love to watch television) That's why you will see links on my site to which I feel are important causes such as Amnesty International & GreenPeace. So, not only do you get to read my opinions, check out my art work & music & read my poetry, you can get involved yourself instead of staying on the sidelines. Or not. & if I were wealthier, I would certainly be even more philanthropic, though I do what I can. & When I was younger & had aspirations of being a writer, I always pictured myself being a syndicated columnist, writing about issues that were important to me & if some big time editor discovers my blog & likes it, maybe someday I'll get the opportunity. So many people blog about so many things so I like to try to set mine apart by a) being funnier b) my links. You may not realize it, but there are more to the links in my blogs than meets the eye. Some are meant to be informative, some funny & some even shocking, so if you get the chance, you'll really enhance the experience if you check out all of them.

Why did I build my Everything Todd Hendricks web site? Besides wanting to learn website building, I've always had sort of a creative bent. As a kid, I was always drawing or writing. As I got older, I started writing songs & poems & stories & over the years I've built up a catalog of creations in all those different mediums, later on adding painting. Check out my Flash Gallery of original paintings, the bulk of them I did with microsoft paint. I am kind of hoping to use my website as sort of an Eportfolio once it's finished & get some exposure from it. In addition to not being able to crap without reading trash, I am also the type of person who has trouble eating unless I am watching a movie or television program. It's cliche I know, but it brings new meaning to the words TV Dinner. I've got about 60 episodes of Cash Cab saved on my Tivo, & whenever I sit down to eat, I knock out 1 or 2 of them. & I actually do pretty well overall on the general knowledge trivia. I'm into sports & used to watch all 4 major sports, NFL, NBA, MLB & the NHL but since I've been married I whittled it down to mainly the NBA. I still watch some football but my schedule is really crazy so rather than watch recorded football games the next day, I usually just keep up with them online @ work. Though I'm off Mondays so I get in a few MNF games during the season, then watch a lot of the playoffs & the Super Bowl. But really, I'm all about NBA basketball & particularly the Dallas Mavericks. I've been watching them since 1987 & am @ the point that I feel they owe me a championship. However, all Mark Cuban wants to do is bring in nice guys who can score rather than defensive minded guys who can get physical. So, it looks like I'll be suffering a looong time waiting. I love to play basketball too & am very competitive even when playing guys who are less than 1/2 my age. The only problem is that I keep getting injured. You see, what happens is, there's these guys that are all bigger, faster & younger than me that I invariably have to match up against. Generally, all my years of experience make up for the fact that I have a surgically repaired back & ankle & can no longer jump as high or run as fast & I wind up scoring on these guys @ will. I can pretty much hit from anywhere on the floor & handle the ball with either hand so I can score practically whenever I want. If I'm open, I don't miss. Well, for some reason, this pisses these guys off so when they're out to stop me, they're also out to hurt me. So, the last time I played competitively was a little less than a year ago when I got my right (shooting) hand broken. Effectively putting an end to competitive ball for me, which sucks, It's one of the places I can take out my pent up anger and frustration & not feel bad about being ultra competitive. I play a mean game of H.O.R.S.E. though.

I am also fascinated by the Newly discovered planet Gliese 581 C, a seemingly Earthlike planet named after it's star Gliese 581. The scientists aren't certain of it yet, but given the temperature range & distance from it's star & perceived topography of the planet, there's a fairly high probability that there is water there. In fact, theoretically, it could be almost completely covered with water. Which means, also, in theory of course, that it could support life. (Science.com)--- "The goal is to find life on a planet like the Earth around a star like the Sun. This is a step in that direction," said study leader Stephane Udry of the Geneva Observatory in Switzerland. "Each time you go one step forward you are very happy." So, what does that mean to us, the race that's literally trying to save the earth while trying to simultaneously destroy it? Well, in our lifetime, it doesn't mean a whole lot, but in the future, who knows. colonization? At the very least, it would be cool if there were another known planet out there with life such as ours. Maybe in the year 2092, if the technology is in place & if a Bush is in the White House, we could invade them & take all of their resources. I don't know, it's something cool to think about.

Then, there's the newest old global crisis, the depletion of the world's supply of fresh water & the corporate raping of it by multinational corporations & sanctioned by the WTO & World Bank. I call it a new old crisis because it's been going on for years but it's suddenly in vogue to talk about. I realize science doesn't mean a lot to corporations for purposes other than R & D. Nor does it matter to conservative politicians, whose policies are geared toward letting these practices take place to line their pockets, but where do they think new fresh water is going to come from? Think about it logically, if you extract fresh water from a river @ a faster rate than it can replenish itself, what will the logical resultant effect? The water supply will eventually dry up. Why can't these chuckleheads see or acknowledge that? Again, rhetorical. They can see it, but the ones who are perpetuating the crisis are the ones with the monopoly on the water extraction & think that since they control it, it won't affect them when all the fresh water tables lower significantly & dry out until there are no more new or reusable sources. & the ones who are buying it for other purposes besides industrialization, agricultural irrigation & urbanization are putting it somewhere for profit, thinking it will serve them later when this all finally comes to a head. So, we've got that to look forward to. I still don't get why they're called conservatives, they don't conserve or save anything, except money.

Listen to me, once I get going on this kind of stuff, it's hard to stop. & I'd have kept going but I would've eventually gotten around to George Bush & how he relates to it all, & that's not what this is all about. It's about me. I'm also very much into music. When people ask me what kind of music I enjoy listening to, I like to be vague. I'll say, you know, Led Zeppelin, Kelly Clarkson, Bay City Rollers...stuff like that. Invariably, they look @ me like I have 3 heads so I clarify by saying something like, you know, Radiohead, Hanna Montana, Hank Williams, that sort of thing. Huh? Okay, Guns n' Roses, The Archies, Public Enemy? Then, they give up, because they know I've got more, so that's always fun. Pssst, I don't really like Kelly Clarkson or Hanna Montana, but don't tell my 6 year old daughter that (insert wink emoticon here). But, the Bay City Rollers rule & rule all!!!! Okay, that's all I'm going to say for now, especially since you probably gave up a couple of paragraphs ago, but I just wanted to give you a little insight into me. Maybe someday, when you're watching an A & E biography about me, you'll say to yourself, "Wow, I think I remember reading some crap about him once." & you'll go to sleep happy & dream little dreamy dreams of everything that is me, Todd Hendricks. Oh well, I can dream, anyway. Tune in next time.
