“I was born under a bad sign, left out in the cold” 

Fool for Your Loving –  Whitesnake

“Cause chaos, rock like Amadeus” 

Cowboy – Kid Rock

If Dick Clark was known as America’s oldest teenager, then Jesse Gormley (aka Fadderly/your friendly neighborhood jman) would be known as it’s oldest juvenile.  Born towards the end of the “age of Aquarius” (1970), Jesse lived as vanilla a childhood one could live.  And, truth be told, continues hence.

Jesse’s interest range rather narrowly from music to comic book/toys to “raising kids”.  He’s also quick to tell you he’s dabbled in just about all the creative arts.  A self proclaimed “exaggerator” and “his generation’s Mark Twain”, Jesse fancies himself more a “storyteller” than a “writer”.  And he’ll tell you that, as well.  Repeatedly.

After a few fits and starts over the years, Jesse founded the blog, Fadderly (the name his kids called him when they were younger) in July of 2011.  And, quite literally, hasn’t stopped since.

When asked what drives him, what he truly is after in his heart of hearts, the father of four pauses for a moment, reflectively.  After a long moment of consideration, he answers quite frankly:  Sleep.

Now that you’ve made your way through that, let me tell you what you can find here at  First up, Life. Kids.  There you’ll find things about me, my kids, my life, my madness.  Just remember, though, you’re the one who clicked on it.  No one forced you.

Logo_site1Then there’s the Container.  The Container of Useless Accessories.  You know what I mean.  Most toys come with accessories that get lost or…tossed into a container.  Well, here’s where you’ll find the “fun” stuff.  I talk geek.  And I talk it hard.  Comics, toys, movies, Lego, Nerf…what every 10 year old kid lives for.  And me, as well.  Apparently.

Logo_site1your friendly neighborhood jman’s almost internet famous internet show.  Where it all comes to life. Everything that you’ve come to love about the Container, only live(ish)!  Imagine the Late Show or the Daily Show with no budget, done in a garage and all about geek stuff and you almost have the internet show.  Almost.

Logo_site1Last, but not least…there’s 117.   Because I just don’t have enough to do, let’s fill my proverbial cup til it runneth over.  In 117, I ramble on about my life for less than 2 minutes.  117 seconds to be precise (Get it?  117?!?!?).  I do all the work.  You do all the laffs.  Simple enough.

And there you have it. in a nutshell.  There’s a whole lot to do and see here, so you best get on with it.  Enjoy your stay, comment as you will (I’ll only delete them if I don’t like them) or just drop me a line.
