Because that year, Mark Koopmans journeyed to a foreign country and rented an apartment while flying solo. That adventure would eventually lead him to Hawaii and the life he now enjoys.
Mark (also known as The Madman and Lord Baldernot) is originally from Ireland. He now lives in Hawaii with his wife, a U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander, and stays home to wrangle three young boys. (God bless him!) Mark is a writer with an incredible sense of humor (ask him about Siggy) and he’s devoted to the Lord. He’s an awesome friend and you won’t find a more genuine soul anywhere.

April Movie Preview – Part Two
Here is part two of the upcoming theatrical releases for April! (Part one was yesterday.) As always, descriptions courtesy of the IMDB. Snarky comments by me.
April 18 –
A terminally ill scientist downloads his mind into a computer. This grants him power beyond his wildest dreams, and soon he becomes unstoppable.
Director: Wally Pfister
Stars: Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy
Possible Johnny Depp boob shot. (Can you say Lawnmower Man III?)
April 25 –
A University physics professor assembles a team to help create a poltergeist.
Director: John Pogue
Stars: Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke, Erin Richards
I'd create a poltergeist that looked like Kate Beckinsale...
An undercover cop tries to take down a ruthless crime lord with access to a neutron bomb by infiltrating his gang.
Director: Camille Delamarre
Stars: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Robert Maillet
I hope it's good since it's one of Paul Walker's last films...
Challenge + IWSG = Overwhelmed
Have you enjoyed the first week of the Challenge? Hope you’ve enjoyed my theme. Yes, it was once again more work than I anticipated, but a lot of fun to put together. The week was a bit overwhelming though. Let me give you an snapshot of my week.
Tuesdays are usually quiet – maybe twenty new posts in my Blogger Buddy file on Feedly. This Tuesday, it began at sixty-five new posts before 6:00 am. No problem – I knew it would be busy. Got through it and had fun.
Wednesday came. IWSG post day. At 5:45 am before I left for work, there were eighty-three new posts for my Blogger Buddies alone. By 7:00 am, that number was one hundred and eighteen.
Crap. At that point, all of my clones quit.
After about thirty blogs, I decided to focus on IWSG posts first. There are three hundred members of the IWSG. You can see where this is going…
So my apologies if I did not visit you on Wednesday. I couldn’t even return all the comments. Will do my best to keep up for the remainder of the Challenge.
Next year, the Challenge will begin on IWSG day. I may not sleep at all that day. Do they still make Jolt Cola…?
Remember Extreme? Following Madman Mark? Seeing any of those movies this month? Were you overwhelmed this week? And what do you remember best about 1990…?
