I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I’ve completed a blog post! First of all, I started back on the video bandwagon, plus work’s still been crazy, but the main deal for me lately has been working on the podcast. There many things to do besides just recording a conversation and posting it on Read More →


In my last blog post, I mentioned that I needed to get my poop together something fierce. Disorganization was becoming the law of the land in the Mast household. Last night, the situation came to a point where normal words fail to do it justice. I had to break out “fastigium”. The good news is, I got the Read More →


My office is a goddamned mess again. Not just a little “I need to spend a few minutes straightening up again” kind of mess. No, it’s a “Jesus, someone call the hoarders show, I think we’re gonna find dead raccoons in here” kind of mess. Mostly it’s ’cause I fail to keep up with organization: Read More →


I’m finally going to try climbing back on the YouTube video wagon. I’ve already got one up on the NotChristopherMast channel, where I’ll be doing my off-the-cuff stuff that I’ve already had going. Hopefully soon I’ll get to recording the one for my main channel, ChristopherMast. For now, enjoy the amateusomeness of this video.


Yesterday I bought some Duplo blocks for my kid. She’s been a big fan of her MegaBloks forever but there’s only so much you can do with them and she’s got the kind of brain that likes putting things together, organizing stuff, and doing puzzles (at least lately). A year ago, I would never have Read More →


The original plan was to start making a video today. No, for real. Yes, I know I haven’t been around the “Tubes of You” forever, but I recently finished a project for work and I’m inspired. Besides, the “Shut Up Already!” podcast I’ve been doing already had me inspired, and although there was a lot Read More →


I never liked meatloaf much. I ate it at home when mom made it, but that was only because there wasn’t a choice. I had to drown it in ketchup to get it down. Basically, from what I remember, it was saltine crackers, egg, salt, tomato sauce, and hamburger that got mashed up in a Read More →


Here’s the thing I don’t understand about personal blogs: Whose life is that interesting? I mean, I get it if you’re rock star or something and people want to see “behind the scenes” of your life. I get it if you’re a TV personality, author, public figure, politician… although really politicians probably shouldn’t blog, huh? Read More →

gas pump

I don’t really have anything of value to say today. I know, a lot of people don’t think I have things of value to say most days, ha ha. Instead of actually telling a story or relating a cohesive thought or whatever, today I thought I would just talk about some of the things, really Read More →


I had a bird once. A cockatiel. His name was Bob. He was a talking bird, too. He could say “hello”. He could wolf whistle. He could imitate the answering machine. He could even call the cat, which seemed to prove that talking is not a sign of a bird’s intelligence. Or maybe Bob was a daredevil. Read More →

keyboard mac

I guess I’ve always known that the new Mac operating system had a dictation option. This is the first time though that I decided to give it a shot. So far I have to say I’m impressed. I’m a fairly fast typist. I type in the traditional ASDF-JKLsemicolon fashion, I can type without looking at Read More →


Sometime in the early part of 1991 I worked in a B Dalton Books. I was some kind of shift supervisor or something, one of those jobs where they pay you like a buck more an hour to do inventory, count the till, and lock up at night. As a bonus, I got a lot Read More →
