Finally, fun on a boat!

Norwegian Cruise Lines has started up offering projector sized Wii in the atrium of their newest cruise ship, as well as other areas in the ship. The entire line is to soon be outfitted with Wii play areas. This is amazing, too bad it wasn't on the Rock Boat. Whenever you're stumbling around drunk trying to avoid the next crappy band, having a diversion of this form is a great idea. It would have been awesome to watch Jewsh and Adrian go at this, especially on the day when we were all locked inside the boat due to hurrican force wind and the ship was all kinds of rocking crazy.

Governor Rick Perry's office said on Tuesday that he had signed a new law that expands Texans' existing right to use deadly force to defend themselves "without retreat" in their homes, cars and workplaces.

"The right to defend oneself from an imminent act of harm should not only be clearly defined in Texas law, but is intuitive to human nature," Perry said on his Web site.

Conciousness Explained

Fate is nothing but a series of self-made decisions based on circumstance and hope for the future to be better or at least different than it is now. There is always a plan in mind, no matter how subtle or enforced, and what is considered to be fate is nothing but the actions upon said plan, determined around the unforeseeable consequences and outcomes of outside forces expounded upon by everyday life. It explains how each person determines whether they are fated to be good or bad, rich or poor, angelic or bastardly. Add in each separate personality and the experience of the world and all questions can be answered, tailored to each individual.

Impeachment Looming

"Any president who says, I don't care, or I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else, or I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed — if a president really believes that, then there are — what I was pointing out, there are ways to deal with that."

DIAF Fox News

Here is an interesting short article by Neil Cavuto of Fox News complaining that fat people cause a bad negative first impression. And then keep it. To Neil, being fat/obese is evidently not a lifestyle choice but the same equivalant as being black, Jewish or any other ethnic form.

WTF? How is something that you are born as due to parental genes the same as stuffing your face everyday with french fries and lard burgers? Yes, I know some people have biological reasons for being able to gain weight more easily than others or lose it slower, but there is no excuse for saying that ethnicity and obesity are on the same par. My pale skin and red hair come from my parents, just as being female. It does not constitute why I do not weigh 300 pounds. It does not explain how my sister had a perfect body in high school and now weighs a bit more. Her choice to eat a lot and not work out created that issue.

Fox News, please try to put some, any, effort into hiring your commentators. You never cease to explain why we mock your media outlet as a farce.

Metal means you're smart....

This explains why I listened to so much Tool and Slayer in the day

Except that Tool isn't metal and I was surrounded by other incredibly smart people. I was in an IB school. Maybe I knew that intelligence and common sense weren't the same things at that age. Maybe I knew they were fools and I had a different path. Or maybe I just hated everything and wanted a way out. But this explanation sounds much better.

Not of this earth



A light echo is light from a stellar explosion echoing off dust surrounding the star that produces enough energy in a brief flash to illuminate surrounding dust. The star presumably ejected the illuminated dust shells in previous outbursts. Light from the latest outburst travels to the dust and then is reflected to Earth.

Marshall Law?

The Bush Regime's preparations for martial law are part of an extreme agenda. This is a regime that is setting out to create a world empire that is unchallenged and unchallengeable and has embarked on an endless war to bring this about. Along with this, they aim to restructure social relations in the U.S., doing away with many of the social and economic institutions that have characterized U.S. society since World War 2. Because of this extreme agenda, the Bush regime takes very seriously the possibility of jolts and ruptures and resistance and are preparing very extreme measures to deal with this."

Would the really go that far?

I love these people

Art, comics, toys, etc. The above image has almost nothing to do with the site but one man's opinion of something beautiful. I love moments like that. Seeing art in the ordinary.



On a completely side note, Modest Mouse came out with a new album recently. I used to be such a devote follower I bought all new albums day of release. I have been lacking. When Build Something Out of Nothing came out I was at Best Buy first day to purchase. Later, Good News for People Who Love Bad News I purchased the day after it came out and then used a burned copy to buy my way out of a mass water balloon attack. This time around, I have slacked. Just now getting around to hearing the new. I do not even know if I am impressed or hateful. Still on only track four in over an hour of listening, thanks to distraction. But it coincides wiht a good day of new mac shuffleness that should prove fruitful in many ways. Listening to songs I have always let slide. Playlists I love but ignore. Checking playlists to I hope are better than the last.

There are a few advantages to not living alone

So right now I have the Adrian and Greg downstairs going over lines for Adrian's theatre class. From the play Things You Shouldn't Say Past Midnight. The scene is set as a man and woman having sex and at climax, the woman screams "Do me, you hook-nosed Jew!" and the scene proceeds into an argument after.

Hearing Greg, a man that is well rather tall and imposing, trying to scream "do me!" over and over again in falsetto ranks equivalent to winning a bet or getting a bonus on the scale of happiness. And I really like money and happiness.

All this, after the explanation of the 'What's In My Butt?' game that is evidently popular with McAfee IT guys. And no, not in that way.

I was conned last night into going out when I was already in a rather loose frame of mind. So I met up with Rebecca and we proceeded to go to Carson's Live, a huge monstrosity of a club, and met up with some coworkers. There are a few technicians in town for training and they evidently wanted to go out with the people who tell them what to do all day. I'm not sure if it was the shock of seeing me there or what explanation can be given, but I was assaulted with free drinks from the moment I walked in the door. Test tube shots and scotch from DeAndrea's boy, Randy was in a very happy place and felt the desire to share, and jello shots from James, on of the techs from Connecticut. Raheim picked up the chair I was on to try to carry me to the dance floor at one point, and everyone tried to dance on and around me. I don't dance. Ever. But it was good they tried.

I remember Princess on stage dancing to the crowd, Randy grinding behind Angela, being told by one who has just met me that he would like to 'break me'.

It was definitely not the night I had planned out. I am glad I went, except for the head of pain I'm trying to forget now.

“What’d you get up to last night?”
“Got wicked drunk.”
“Yeah? Where’d you go?”
“I didn’t go anywhere. I drank at home.”
“You had a party and didn’t invite me? Who showed up?”
“No one. I got drunk by myself.”
“No shit? What’s wrong, man? You wanna talk about it?”


I do wanna talk about it. Not about what my friend wrongly assumed was the dark motivation that would drive me to drink alone, but the very act of drinking alone.

Stupid Apple Products

So iTunes deleted my bloody library. I didn't upgrade my version, I did absolutely nothing but leave my laptop on all day converting a few files from one form to another while I went to work, a rather customary process. So now I need to reload all 40 gig, as well as remake all the folders and resort. And yes, I was told to make a backup but I didn't want to take up the space. So, essentially the glitch is not my faule but the lack of forethought is. Damn damn damn. I really like myh iTunes to be organized. for bacnds I have full discography, I have separate folders for each album, let alone each band.

Nothing like starting a time consuming process over again. And playlists that were perfectly planned out for each mood and thought process. Just...gone. This is not the sort of fresh start I like.

Results of being both shy and tactless

Become more comfy in social situations


  • Always look for the positive qualities in a person. Getting people to like you is merely the other side of liking them.
  • Don't have a big ego. If you give the impression that you know it all, that you are superior, you make it hard for people to like you. Be normally humble.
  • Give strength to people, support them. Help them to be stronger and they will give you affection.


  • So, right from the beginning I'm screwed. Positive qualities? I tend to look more for what people are capable or incapable of. Be humble? This one really sets it that I will be uncomfortable in social atmospherers for pretty much ever. Humility is rarely a friend, as I much prefer to acknowledge my awesomeness. And, in turn, I expect others to as well. Strength I can do. If you can live through me, thsn you can live through anything. Like Nietzsche, but usually liquored up and lacking the syphilis.

    Opening night of 300

    It lived up to expectations. Not the greatest movie in the world, but fulfilling. And even as someone who really normally dislikes lots of muscle, the guys looked good. They fit the part. And the audience clapped at one point. When you see it, you'll know where, even if no one claps.

    Everything looked good, if sometimes grainy. I know it was the style Miller and Snyder were trying to attain but sometimes I felt I was in a throwback to some sort of low-budget 60's film, or like I was watching the Rudolph Maté original The 300 Spartans. Not that I've seen it, but perhaps they patched in pieces to go for a form of homage. :)

    Fine spring day

    Nothing like the brightness of sunshine.....

    New browser day one

    So I've switched over from Safari to Flock. Not sure how much I prefer it yet. Most everything seems to be about the same. Nice, clean design. Some of the 'social networking' aspects are actually pretty nifty. Now I can just drag and drop photos from my desktop to my Flickr without going through the uploader process. Blogger now has the standard option everyone that is Windows based has been using all this time, such as the composer window or the insert link option. Safari has only the ability to add a photo and to spell check. Everything else is all html based.

    But I am not happy that it seems I have lost my alt+pg dn ability to scroll down a page. Now it goes line by line instead of by page. I will need to find the new shortcut buttons for that b/c otherwise I might go mad. One button mouse control doesn't alolow for easy scrolling otherwise.

    I'll give this a try for a while. With all the hassles Firefox has with a Mac this might be the best alternative to Safari out there.

    Big news for underage smokers: You won't be able to buy cigarettes on the streets anymore. A new system, called "Taspo" (Tabacco Passport), goes into effect in 2008, requiring every smoker to carry around an RFID card issued only to people 18 and over if they want to make a cigarette vending machine purchase. Cards will be issued for free (plus whatever amount of money you put on it), but purchase will require a photo ID and other identification documents.

    Currently, 65% of the 30 million smokers in Japan purchase their cigarettes through vending machines, so this is a big step in the Tobacco Institute of Japan's initiative to raise awareness on the dangers of smoking.

    So the eclipse pretty much looked like this. From further away. And cold. And windy. And seen with 2 pagans on a break from work.

    I grew up on Greek mythology. I read all the stories and knew all of the Gods, monsters and humans. Somehow, I always felt a special love for Artemis, goddess of the hunt. While I never wanted to be the chaste and pure being she was in story, I loved her complete freedom and independence. So I have also always looked fondly upon the moon, as it is her planet. The one place in the world I have always wanted to visit is the island of Delos, to see the ruins of altars built to her and her brother Apollo at their place of birth. I think in some ways she is why I wanted to be an astronaut as a child; to be closer to the moon.

    But tonight, as with all times, I look upon it and see nothing but an orb in the sky. I lack the belief to feel any sort of religious comfort in it. Scientifically, while rare, the eclipse looked just like a night when the moon is waxing/waning. Nothing terribly special in it all. And that made me mildly sad. Like growing up and being told on Christmas morning that Santa is actually Mom and Dad. There was no magic. I had called it magical on the way downstairs in a mocking fashion, only to see the truth of my statement.

    While nature is itself fantastic, it lacks whatever it was I was after. I have been in awe of nature many times, but this left nothing.

    Sometime, just once, I would like to feel that awe with someone at my side rather than the necessity to be on my own.

    And now I go force myself to sleep to insure being back 10 hours after leaving work...

If anyone was aware of the issues to begin with the need for the slogan wouldn't be as pressing.

    And as these stupid little magnets also brought the onslaught of all the other 'causes', this nice article made me giggle. It's about damn time that they no longer made a profit. I have nothing against the companies making the items, as they were just feeding on the desires of the populace. It is, as always, the populace I despise. In this instance, I am glad that there is a momentary gap of obscenely tacky stupid human behavior about.

    Rather a dull video of a wonderful song. But I like his coat and that he reminds me of my friend Larsen.

    For a more entertaining Keane video, go here: Everybody's Changing

    I've just sung karaoke to it so many times on Singstar that I don't really want to see it again.

    And now off to the Land of Gar to collect last years tax return so I can finish e-filing and get my money.

    Things to do when you're bored and want to look dumb with a camera. Seriously, too much free time.

    Why is it that I am trying to make it as easy as possible in one form yet I keep finding my stubborn side trying to push to make everything as hard as I can?

    Brother...

    Taba, I need talking. Call me again. You know my answering ability.

    A decade over..

    The only credit I can give grunge artists is the same as I offer for country: you know your sorrow well.

    Too bad it does not help the singing.
