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.

  1. I totally dig the half beard. It makes me wish I could sport one. And pee standing up. But alas, I’m a girl, so I can’t do either (unless I suppose I don’t mind a little pee on my legs, but generally speaking, I do.) Anyways, love the blog. And beard.

  2. Chris –

    It’s the end of another year, and respects need to be shown. This post is a little delayed, but it had to be reciprocated. It may even be my last notifications. (This process is a pain…) Here’s my nomination for your The Innovative Blogger Award, which was initiated by Don Charisma. http://thinaby.com/2013/12/28/the-inventive-bloggers/

    Keep up the great writing! If I can speak on behalf of the followers, we can’t wait to read next year.

    • Hey guys, thanks for cotninmemg. I appreciate all the feedback. I have been having issues providing support by email so I’m hoping this website will help. I’m planning on implementing an easy way to migrate photos.For now, the SDK only allows apps to have access of their own documents, so it will have to be some kind of web based import/export process. Unfortunately,my background is embedded systems programming and I’m having to learn web programming on the fly. But I’m fully confident I will get it done. If you know of any resources I can use please post them up and I will check it out.

  3. I’m studying some art, and I really would like to try your ferns-path picture in pastel. Would that be okay?
