About This Shizz

Chris Half Beard

Hello, my name is Chris Hinton and I’m a dimwit.  I drink too much, I curse too much, and I take too many photos of myself sporting a pretty ridiculous half beard.  I suppose I could end it right there, but we dimwits never know when to shut up, so I’m going to soldier on if you don’t mind.

I am 36 and live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I currently work in the film industry. Naturally, your immediate response to that should be, “Hey, the film industry. Do you work on them there pornos?”  No, I do not work on them there pornos.  I may be a dimwit, but I’m a bona fide dimwit, thank you very much.  I work on major motion pictures as a location scout.

In between working on movies, I occupy my free time with various hobbies like writing, music, traveling, video editing, photography, and Photoshopping the human heads of my friends onto the bodies of those adorable clapping sea lions.  It does keep me rather busy.

In a nutshell, The Dimwit Diary is a place for me to post an assortment of madness in exchange for a piece of sanity in this sometimes crazy world.  Writing is my therapy, my release, my way of working through my thoughts.  It’s my way to laugh, my way to observe, and my way to poke fun at some of the absurdities we encounter in life.  I encourage you to follow along in the madness, but if it’s not your cup of tea, I understand.  That’s comedy, can’t win ’em all, and that’s life in showbiz as they say.  You’re probably the type of person I’ll be poking fun of anyways. 

So follow, share, steal, tweet, reblog, or whatever if you’d like.  It would mean a lot to me.  Many thanks for being awesome, my fellow dimwitted half-breeds.

  2. Buzz words are truly painful, a whole segment left a burn mark on my frontal lobe while holding a bottle in front of me (or was that a frontal lobotomy?) after using them on a resume, cover letter, and of course my TPS cover sheet. Thanks for the follow. If I follow you and also want a half beard now does that make me weird?

    • No way! Half beards are all the rage. Nothing weird about ’em at all (well, I do get a few strange looks when I go shopping for toilet paper at Target sporting a half beard.) Cheers!

  3. AnElephantCant claim to be a dimwitted half-breed
    He always feels he is of superior breeding
    He likes almost everyone
    If they are good fun
    But mainly for the peanuts they feed him

    • I don’t have peanuts, but I have some Saltine crackers you might dig. Times are tough, but when I’m back to work, I’ll feed you some…wait. What the hell do elephants eat besides peanuts?! I’ll have to research it, but I’ll feed you well, my pink elephant friend. Yes you can!

      • Side note: See ie random info recently stumbled upon. Did you know that when played backwards, the phrase, Yes you can! Says what sounds like Thank you Satan?

    • Thanks grapefruit eyes! I get a kick out of your gravatar-whoozy-ma-whatzit photo. It’s a nice one. I hope you keep it for a while. I’ll have to check yours out some more too. A person with grapefruit eyes and likes floral designs has to be all right.

  4. Love your blog…. the very best one I have seen yet. I love your sense of humor. I have that same kind of humor except I can’t pull it off and have to suppress it or people look at me like I have a unicorn horn sticking out of my head. ;) Will enjoy reading your posts.

    • Very kind of you to say! It’s taken me many years of pissing off my parents, siblings, friends, teachers, and professors to get to this point. They didn’t think I was quite as funny. But look at me now, ma! I have a fancy blog ;) Well, stick with the humor. The world needs to laugh a little more. Cheers.

  5. Hey there! I saw that you “liked” my post and just thought I’d give you a shout. Love the half-beard photo. Maybe some time I’ll post the picture of me with a giant handlebar moustache where I’m among old-timey furniture, posed like it’s 1875. Your blog makes me laugh, and laughter is good. Thus, by the law of transitive blogging, your blog must be good. Or at least okay. I mean, give me a break, I haven’t had time to read much of it yet, so it seems to early to form hard opinions one way or the other, you know, but then again, laughter is good (as well as the best medicine I’m told, though not by anyone with a lower abdominal organ disorder, as I imagine they might have different views on the subject, so you never know), and maybe that’s enough. So keep up the good (based on what I’ve got so far, which, as I mentioned, isn’t a whole lot) work!

    • Thanks my friend! I was gonna say my old friend, but don’t want to beat up a 150 year old man too bad ;) I think you’ll get a few laughs along the way and maybe even pick up some killer Photoshop skills. So feel free to stop in anytime. There’s usually a party up in her-a.

  6. OK……read the shizz and think I’m def gonna like following your blog. Plus – I lived in the burgh for 17 years so i get where you’re comin’ from……have fun goin’ dahntan and nis an nat.

  7. Absolutely loving the new header. Makes your blog even more bad ass (bad ass might not be the right word, no, you know what, I’m sticking with it).

  9. It looks like your razor works a bit like Anchorman’s sex panther cologne – 60% of the time, it works every time.
    I’m going to be following your blog around now, hope you don’t mind.

  10. The Krew fully supports your impressive schnoz, and fantastic photo array. Especially the retro 70’s Roller Disco Look!

    • Ok, here is the problem As shown in the euaotiqn below, nitrogen oxide, NO, is common pollutant that is produced by the reaction of nitrogen and oxygen gases. Since these gases are the major components of air, nitrogen oxideresults when air is heated in furnaces, motor engine cylinders, or other high temperature combustion areas. N2 (g) + O2 (g) 2 NO (g)A. Given that the standard enthalpy of formation for NO2 (g) is 90.25 KJ/mole and using the absolute entropies listed below, calculate the free energy change for this reaction at 25 degrees celcius. Is this reaction product favores at 25 degrees celcius? Absolute entropiesN2 (g) 191.5 J/mol times K O2 (g) 205.0 J/mole times KNO (g) 210.7 J/mol times KB. If the reaction is not product-favored at 25 degrees celcius, determine under what conditions it would be product favored.Show ALL work.Thanks for any help I can get!

  11. I don’t think you’re a dimwit. Not at all. I reckon you’re just pretending, to sucker us in with low expectations only to then dazzle us with your own personal brand of corky and candid humour. And it works. Keep up the god’s work.

  12. Hi Chris, first of all thanks for visiting and following my blog. I just read your last post and I liked the way you write! It made me smile and that is good! Keep with the good writing! Success to your blog and your personal projects!

  13. I enjoyed your last post, about being pregnant and Lu Lu. I feel a bit pregnant myself, I think my wife is rubbing off on me. So I sympathised with your pregnancy, your goddaughter stuff and your desire for privacy with Lu Lu. But gowaaaan, tell us a bit!!! Either way, good luck!

  14. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with
    your site. It looks like some of the text within your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thank you

    • WoOoowW!! Thank you kindly, darlin’. I’ve gotten pretty bad with responding back to people’s comments. Been busy, but your pretty smile in your grava-hoozy-ma-whatzit just sorta grabbed me. Fished around your blog a little, and it turns out the gal with the pretty smile is just as pretty on the inside. You seem sweet. Stay that way. Pretty pretty pretty and sweet. My oh my.

      Thanks again. Cheers from the Dimwit Dingaling.
