Conan's last "Tonight Show" Monologue 1/22/10

Conan hosted NBC's The Tonight Show one last time on Friday, the 22nd of January of 2010. I remember watching this and following the drama between the different people like Jay Leno, David Letterman, but more importantly NBC in general.

Solid Rock

I would go with Blake Webb and others to the Saturday night young-adults Solid Rock church services at like 07:00 PM weekly sometimes maybe in 2009 and 2010. We probably didn't go every week. I'm not sure if we started going in 2009 but we at least attended a few times before May of 2010 and I may have attended a few times after that from 2010 to as late as 2012. They offered snacks and coffee. What really drew people in was the worship band which reminded me of the music at the Salvation Army's annual Bible conference called the Western Youth Institute (WYI).

Alder House

I lived in The Alder House - Alder Housing Apartments, room number 414, in Portland, Oregon, from October of 2008 to June of 2010. Then lived and work at Camp Redwood Glen. After that, lived with Charlotte Battle from July of 2010 to spring or summer of 2011.

We Are The World 25 For Haiti

2010-02 - February of 2010 - Month in Review

February of 2010

Shutter Island

Shutter Island was almost as shocking as The Others (starring Nicole Kidman) which also had a twist ending in a similar fashion. Saw Shutter Island with apartment-mate Dennis Tipton on Friday night, the 19th of February of 2010. Marriage Ref premiered on the 28th and Jerry Seinfeld was kind of funny.

Super Bowl Party

I was helping out with the Moore Street youth group and children ministry off and on from 2009-2011. I was riding my bike to a house for Super Bowl on a cold snowy Sunday, the 7th, and Blake Webb found me and picked me up in the van.

Telephone - Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga wrote Telephone for Britney Spears who didn't use it. So, Gaga ended up bringing on Beyonce. Gaga said she had strong emotional connection to the song which makes it tough for her. Telephone released in January 2010 and was published on YouTube on the 15th of March.

Breaking Bad

The 3rd season of Breaking Bad premiered on the 22nd and I started watching either that year or possibly as early as 2011 and ever since whenever I started watching, each episode, through to the finale on the 29th of September of 2013. Breaking Bad was one of my favorite top ten or so shows of the 2010's, that is out of the shows that I would regularly watch as they came out.

Not Afraid

Eminem - Not Afraid

Eminem, Not Afraid, released on Thursday, the 29th of April of 2010. It's a powerful song about how the journey of life takes you from one thing to another. Don't be afraid. Be brave. Ironically, for me, my world forever changed quite a bit just three days later. I didn't resurrect from the grave like Jesus did. We already past Easter. Instead, quite the opposite in that Blake Webb died that Sunday, the 2nd of May of 2010. In life, stuff happens. God gives you strength to face the unexpected. It's critical to pray, to be brave, and to simply make the best choices you can.

The Rise of FEMA

That's what she said on the 12th. Toby Mac - Lose My Soul on the 23rd. Police State 4: The Rise of FEMA, audio version, on the 24th. Iron Man II on the 26th.

Blake Webb & Friends 43604300_10156640640858766_5982449003021729792_n.jpg

Blake Webb died on Sunday, the 2nd of May of 2010. I felt guilty as I was staying the night at his house and found him dead on his bed. So, I was beating myself up a bit for not coming to his room sooner. Sunday was the last day of the 13th Annual Doris Verbout Salvationist Basketball Tournament which was hosted at the Moore Street Corps.


Us kids and young adults were a bit sad and some of us ended up having a slumber party with the Campbell family in Portland, OR. Our party didn't last just one day but instead went on to June. We saw Robin Hood. We played a bunch of Mario and Donkey Kong on the Nintendo Wii.


In honor of Blake Webb being promoted to glory, I took the membership course and became a Salvation Army soldier early in June of 2010.

Women at the creek at Redwood Glen

I became a soldier on Sunday, the 6th of June of 2010. Amtrak pulled me over to Redwood Glen on Monday so I could be a Relief Counselor and program staff. So, I would perform alongside other staff in our nightly campfire skits which was my favorite thing that summer.

I met a lot of interesting people including Farmer Hanna. I really enjoyed hanging out with the people. We would play basketball sometimes. I went off with Christian and his friends to San Francisco one weekend. We were listening to Backstreet Boys, I Want It That Way. We sang along in the car. I couldn't find Full House. We saw the Golden State Bridge. This was either in June or July.

Me at Redwood Glen in July of 2010

At Camp Redwood Glen, I was a Relief Counselor and program staff. It was a fun summer in San Jose, California. On Saturday, the 24th of July of 2010, flew in an airplane back to Portland, OR and moved in with Charlotte Battle.

Camp Experience

I worked for five summers at camps in the 2000's and one summer during the 2010's. Working at camp is one of my favorite things to do in the whole wide world, if not my favorite kind of thing to do.

2010 Western Youth Institute (WYI)

2010-08 - August of 2010 - Month in Review


Attended my third Western Youth Institute (WYI) of The Salvation Army, an annual week long Bible retreat designed for youth and young adults up to the ages of like 25 years old. I was 25 that year, meaning it would be my last time as a camper. Well, it ended up being my last and only visit to WYI in the 2010's, that decade. I really do love WYI and I was able to run into a bunch of interesting people.

Criminal Minds

I needed a place to stay. In July of 2010, I moved in with Charlotte Battle who would volunteer with The Salvation Army. She is like a missionary. She knew Blake Webb who died in May. She was a friend of ours and decided to help me out. She introduced me to Criminal Minds and I started watching ever since. She would also watch Bones which I also started getting hooked on. I did chores around the house for her. I continued helping with the youth ministry at Moore Street from 2009-2011.

The DCeric Show

Oatmeal in September of 2010

I started hanging out with Matt Kurtz as early as August of 2010 and as late as maybe Christmas. It was most likely around September. I would generally take the bus to his house in Vancouver, WA. Matt's brother (Mike) somehow got me to go to his house to hang out and then I became a regular. I became addicted.

Playing Games

We would watch movies, shows, play video games, board games, make videos, talk, have fun, etc. I would meet some of his friends, like Danny Magda, Mario, Matt's brother, Mike Kurtz, and also the other Mike, Mikey. Many adventures with these people, 2007-2012, 2017. Super Mario Smash Bros. Playstation. Nintendo systems. Classic games from the 1980's, 1990's. All kinds of games.

Facebook terminated an account of mine. Friday, the 8th of October of 2010, I posted the following: "was just deleted. just heard that Joey Arnold's one & only real FaceBook account was truly deleted & destroyed & terminated & disabled & killed & murdered & sliced & ran over all for no real reasons & shredded like dirt which makes me wonder & makes me angry & it is like the fifth time that FaceBook has commited such crimes which inspires me to truly press charges towards them for that."


I wrote that my real Facebook account profile, possibly my very first or second account was terminated by Facebook for no reason. I originally joined Facebook around 2006. I may have made a second account around 2006 as well. I don't remember exactly. Over the years, I've made different Facebook accounts, pages, groups, etc.

Infinite Altitude on YouTube

I was a Salvation Army bell ringer at JC Penney in Portland, OR at the Clackamas Town Center in Happy Valley in November and December of 2010. I would ride my bike and hop onto the Tri-Met MAX train to get there. I would bring in around $200 daily.


I created a few more YouTube channels like Infinite Altitude, Ram Reflection, and Ironic Mystic. My computer was making weird noises on Thursday, the 11th.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead became one of my favorite shows during the 2010's and I started watching it after the end of the first season, that sixth episode premiered on Sunday, the 5th of December of 2010. I was binge watching through all six episodes probably on Thursday, the 9th. I probably finished watching on Friday. I don't remember exactly which week I started watching but it was pretty ground-breaking for me. Thanks to the suggestion by Sharon Clayton and Matt Kurtz, I started watching this show. The show teaches us to prep.
