Buzz Aldrin – the original Moonwalker (Sorry Michael RIP) With only 30 seconds of fuel remaining, The Eagle has landed … I repeat the Eagle has landed. Talk about cutting it close on fuel … shit a day that almost did not become history 41 years ago today. [Thanks Gizmodo .. I was afraid nobody else was going to remember] Apollo 11 Landing

What is Bucket-of-Milk? Where do you start a blog?
I have had various blogs in the past, ofter times having a seedy outlook on the world and internet around me. So Bucket-of-Milk is a re-imagined and re-digested regurgitation of random thoughts of DJTECH .:. Your Geek Next Door. Think of this blog as a reboot of the DJTECH franchise.
Perhaps since my first website in 1996, I’ve always had a fear of just putting it all out there for the world. You know all the issues and dirty laundry that you try and keep close rather than airing for the world to see. However blogs seem to have the overwhelming draw of being able to stand on you very own soap box and rant to the world whatever the f*ck you want to say. That’s right I dropped the F-bomb, which seems to be a common trait in many blogs that I enjoy. So hence if I am going to rant on my own soap box I will say anything I want without holding back or censorship. Isn’t that just one example of our American freedoms?
We are all grown ups right, we all experience life’s trials and tribulations. The Gen-X and Gen-Y generation don’t believe in old fashioned daily diaries, but instead modern day blogs. Sure you don’t share diaries with the world like blogs but with today’s weak privacy does it really matter anyway, whatever someone wants to find out about you there are at least three places willing to sell them everything about you anyway.
The other beauty of a blog is I can talk about whatever I want, when I want, and then tomorrow or next week rant about something else completely unrelated. What a great way to get over writers block. Today could be a story about the war in Iraq followed closely by a story of the agonizing Broccoli farmers in Kathmandu, or the plight of out of work carrier pigeons that used to carry our messages before the internet.
Heck if my blog can bring a smile or laughter to someone else who’s having an off day that is terrific. Perhaps someone else has had a similar screwed up experience similar to mine, after reading maybe they will realize they are not alone. My blog hopes to be an extension of me, whether anyone reads it, agrees with it or not it really doesn’t matter ….. after all it’s my soap box; Welcome to Bucket-of-Milk!
