Welcome to!
My name is Brent Butler. I'm 32, and grew up in Des Moines, IA. This site is home to my blog, some pictures, videos, Tweets and more.

Just about all the coding that makes this site tick was written by me, by hand, in Notepad. That's how I roll ... er ... code.

  • Blog, etc.
    Here you will find my blog entries, pictures, videos, Tweets, Foursquare check-ins, and jokes I've sent. Instead of compartmentalizing all of that, I've put it in one chronologically-organized place.

  • Weather
    Get weather information for Des Moines, IA, including current conditions, a forecast, and run-down of today's weather.

  • Music
    Check out my listing of 78 free MP3 files available on the Internet. These are actually legal.

  • Web Cam
    Spy in on me and see what is on my home computer screen. Viewer discretion advised. No, really.

  • Cubs
    I've created a fan page for the Chicago Cubs. It displays current games, standings and news. I know that they're awful, but this gave me something to code, okay? Lay off me.

  • Drumline
    Created for the Des Moines Lincoln High School Drumline, it includes sound bites, photos, interviews with members of the drumline, and a few rosters from back in the day.
