Quite often do I forget about and then later come to realize how much I love music, with both periods of time varying greatly. Today was one of the latter. I'm sure I must look like an idiot to the other people here at work mouthing the words to songs that are over 4 years old

Dishwalla - Somewhere In The Middle

I was out the other day
and I saw you in your big black car
and I was waving as you were passing
cause I know who you are
you had this look that of an angel
it was such a bad disguise
did you think for second I would not realize

tripping hard falling down onto the ground
cause I can't stand up
and I can't fall down
cause I'm somewhere in the middle of this

I was out the other night
and I saw you so we had a fight
it was late and I was lonely
and its such a long way home
so I asked you if you'd join me
for a single last call drink
so you turned and bought us 2
and you didn't even blink
you had this look that of an angel
it was such a bad disguise
when you drink it makes you angry
when I drink I want you more and more and more

tripping hard falling down onto the ground
cause I can't stand up
and I can't fall down
and I'm somewhere in the middle of this

well I find it hard
I always tried to find the sane life
but I don't like the way things are
and I keep falling to my knees
somewhere in the middle of this


Freakin' hilarious

The house is settled - I'm finally starting to get a little setup, which is really exciting. :) Just looking forward to some time to unpack and clean up.

Oh, and this is my new favorite quote:

(regarding the Nintendo Revolution, recently renamed the Wii - pronouced "WHEE!")

It'll probably be the best selling system of all time. Clearly things don't work out when Nintendo tries to play everyone else's game. The Gamecube is pretty similar to the PS2 and Xbox, it did OK. Then Sony was like "We're gonna give you Grand Theft Auto on a handheld, beat that" and Nintendo said "Fuck it. Here's this thing that looks like a fake PDA you'd find in some kid's 'IT worker playset' that has N64 graphics. And oh yeah, we're gonna make you do arithmetic problems." Bajillion dollars. Now they're gonna bump it up a notch just to see how ridiculous they can make something sound and still sell more than they can produce.



I'm in my house and now have the een-tar-web setup! Hooray! :)

Now if only I hadn't left my camera in Austin from this last weekend *laughs*


Holy crap!

I'm a homeowner! More updates once internet is setup and I don't have to take time away from work to post...


1... 1 Robot. Ha ha ha...

Versatile Intelligent Juggernaut Assembled for Yelling

Also, I own a house! More to come soon, once the previous owner moves out...


Houses and contracts and lawsuits, oh my!

Yet again, I think the subject says it all here.



Yeah, you heard me.


This is why

I love my job.

*Witty title here*

Bleh. Spend the entire day playing WoW, Guitar Hero and watching TV. How utterly productive. Also, look - Vincent's on a commercial.

Poking around through my daily set of links (trying to dig through the April's fools jokes everywhere) and I come across the yzf600r forum - a website where a bunch of people that ride a Thundercat convene. There's a lot of very mature riders there, which I like. Plus it's a great wealth of information since I haven't had a lot of time on the road.

Anyways, there's nothing like a post about bad wrecks to make you comtemplate your mortality. There was a lot of links to bad wrecks, motorcyle and car. Fatalities all over the board, from the stupid person who lost control gunning it down the freeway, to the responsible driver who got hit by the stupid person. It really forces you to remember how short life can be, how fragile we are. All we physically are is a soft blob of carbon, and it doesn't take very much to pull the life from that. I think that's why I'm amazed by how eager people are to put their lives in the hands of others, tailgating on the freeway, pissing people off, yelling at them on the road. It doesn't take much. (I'm just thinking aloud here, so if you'd like to call me a hypocrit for riding a motorcycle, go right ahead. We all make our choices). It just scares me how easily it can all disappear. Every trip, every drive, every step could be your last. Does that mean you live in fear every moment about what might happen? No. But it's good to remember sometimes.

So if today was your last day, and something terrible happened on your next trip outside, would you be happy? Have you done all the things that you wished you had? Have you left things well with all the people that you care about? Was your last day everything you thought it would be? We're all so damn petty, worrying about and fighting about the stupidest things that won't matter in the long run, and force us to suffer through life instead of enjoying it. Why? Life should be a beautiful thing, to love every moment. If not, why do it? I'm going to personally try as hard as I can to stop being so petty, to appreciate the smaller things in life. Strive to find the diamond in the rough.

My parents should be in Beijing right now. Everytime someone in my family or someone I care about travels, car trip or plane, I get a little afraid. A little afraid that something really bad could happen. Does that make me a pessimist, or someone who values those goodbyes for everything they might be?

I need to get back to music and art. I've been craving it a lot, and it grows by the day. I'm going to start looking for concerts in Dallas, and am going to go buy a good pair of headphones for work and workout tomorrow. Also, I'm going to draw - something. That's my promise to you.
