We're going to Portland for the weekend. Planning to stop at Silver Falls state park on the way out to see if the falls are really silver. I need some new photos.

Last year I came out with a music mix. Ok it's just a bunch of pop songs, and some you might like some you might not. This year, I will again build a mix, and it'll be coming out sometime within the next 3 months. Get ready, because this years mix is going to send shockwaves through the music world. There are still openings, so if you have any requests for the 2006 mix, drop me a line. You know how to get ahold of me. Email. Comment. Phone.
Here's last years mix (code named Kyle's mix, for obvious reasons).
- The Killers - Mr. Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont's Thin White Duke Mix)
- beck - ghettochip malfunction (hell yes) [remix by 8-Bit]
- nine inch nails - Only
- butthole surfers - dracula from houston
- gorillaz - feel good, inc.
- the killers - sombody told me
- blur - song 2
- weezer - hash pipe
- weezer - island in the sun

- the killers - mr. brightside
This weekend I'm gearing up for the Sisters Scramble. A 10k trail run through the woods. The compeition will be feirce, but we're drinking the good drink and eating the good eats, so we should be bringing the 'A' game tomorrow. It would be sweet if I hadn't had to donate NINETEEN pints of blood in the last 20 weeks. You do the math. That's more blood than 2 of me can hold at one time. In anycase, I'm feeling pretty decent and should be able to rip off a sub 40 minute 10k. Costume might be in effect.

East finals: Pittsburg (wins most improved club over last year - worst to first almost) vs. Montreal. West finals: Minnesota vs. Detroit
Minnesota will crush Montreal in 5 games, and it won't be over until June. A homer pick you say, picking your home town MN wild? No way. OK maybe just a little bit. The Wild finally opened up the pocket book and signed some goal scorers: former SCSU star Mark Parrish and Pavol Demitra, to go along w/ all star Marian Gaborik (or also pronouced 'mary ann' by wild coach Jacques Lamaire in all of his interviews - classic). That offensive strategy will work great, along w/ Lamaires defensive coaching style. It will be great to see Lamaire match up against the Canadiens.

Ness plans a full comeback next year in his first full season as a Cat 3 racer in Oregon. Since June 5th, Ness has been undergoing treatment for Hemochromatosis, a genetic condition that causes the body to store extra iron. As of today he's undergone 18 phlebotomies, and it looks like treatment could last into 2007. Ness plans to do some ski racing this winter, with possible plans for the Birkie in Feb. and the National Masters in March.
In other local news, Ness's wife Laurie recently returned from Paraguay on a trip for operation smile. Click here for a flickr slideshow.
(*** uh, yea, this was about my racing season for 2006 - There might be other events -mac forest 15k trail run-, but for the most part, it's over, just like the Twins) the blog will continue though. There are some rumors of a site re-design and a new URL (nessski.com??) wait and see!

Must win game 2 at home with rookie pitcher Boof Bonser.
Boof -freaking- Bonser, pitching the twins most important game of the year thus far. BOOF!!!
The twins won the alds game 1 in NY 2 years ago, and then went on to lose the next 3. (I think it also happend like that 3 years ago too, but I can't quite remember). These are the Oakland A's we're talking about here, time to git some hits, dammit!
