yeehaw!

well... i dunno.. i have no excuses... jsut have not felt like writing... i forget whqati wrote last.. this week... finished my book on saturday, two saturday's ago... i enjoye dit... i really felt empathy towards the main character... and at times i don't feel too differnt from him... though others times he does have bizzare behavior... i can't comment on how accurately autism was portrayed since i know no one with it... and even so the character was treated to a certain degree and could for the msot part function okay in society... i dunno my be i'll writei in more detail some other time (haha pretty funny)...

got hosu eof leaves form the library... have not had much timeot read it yet...

umm... work is okay... i got a bonus for good work.. the next day they informed me they would not beable ot hire me full time after graduation... though they say they'd like to... jsut no funding... i'd call bullshit on that if it wasn't for the nice bonus i was awarded the day before... but i dunno... and i don't care... jsut closes a door that i didn't really wanna take anyways...

this weekend, well yesterday, i went ot indian lake and meet all the guys, plus hal, from flint... it was a great time... laughed alot... really got out of the dayton funk... though the dayton funk has not been nearly as bad... i'm getting out more... even if it is jsut hey i have a movie i wanna watch cani come watch it at your palce sure... i got burned my the sun... it used ot be my scalp but now it's jsut my forehead where i got burnt... scalp is losing ground to forehead... i find msyelf making jokes about my balindg ona daily basis now... but what else cani do... better ot laugh about it than hide and be sensitive about it... atleast i think... but yeahi really enoyed myself...

kimi won another f1 race... yay mercedes, yay kimi, yay finland and germishny... i may have to don a mercesdes hat for the US grandprix on june... i was curious what this summers hat would be anyways... but i'm hesitant to wear a mercesdes hat too many places... i dont' wanna appear too stuck up... i have not been wearing hats often lately anyways though... hence the burnt forehead...

hmm... been walking the dogs several nights a week... tryingot keep that up... here's a nice picture i took the other night ona walk...

crawling out of the pit...

my allergies are bothering me... i thought it was a cold, because anymore i forget i have allergies, they rarely bother me... they used ot be much worse... i usally think i'm getting a cold... but it usally only lasts for one day... cold usually last longer don't they? but i fianlly took some allergy meds and its better now... not gone, but better...

my cd's came today... very exciting... the grendel is good... only really listened to a few tracks... i was really excited about the psyclon nine... it's pretty decent too... very dostorted vocals... i'm pretty sure it's a guy behindit all but the vocals remind me a bit of the android lustvocals whihc i know are female...but they are plesantly creepy... the insert art was fun... it had a nekkid angel inside... i'd never had a cd with nekkid people before... well lords of acid voodoo u but that was cartoon nekkid devil women.. now i have one with a real nekkid angel lady... the other album from heimataerde i have not listened to at all yet... so no comments...

while i'm at it, i purhcased the new NIN last week... there are a few okay tracks... but overall i dont like it much... i liked the downward spiral.. a lot... but the rest of NIN i never got into too much soi guess that fact i don't enjoy the new album too much is no surpise...

i replaced my belt clip on the nomad's case... it broke off in flint... it was plastic... i took a small scarp of thin aluminum form work drilled a hole in it bent it and found a small screw and nut and i have a belt clip again... this is important because without a belt clip the nomad rides too lowin my pocket and the headphone wires of my mx-500's are jsut a tad too short... they still reach my ears but if i move my head too far away form that direction my left earphone gets yanked out... so that problem was resolved...

i walked my doggies today... i'm tring to do this every eveningi have the time... i walk to the en dof my street and back... it's 2.4 miles according to my car odometer... it's peaceful.. and i enjoy the scenery... there are some nice rolling hills i guess... it's pretty... it's notlike northern ohio were it's all flat... there's little excitement here... Taylor walk ahead at first then she lags behind tringot slow me down then she gives up and keeps pace with me...

i bought a book yesterday... "The Speed of Dark" by elizabeth Moon.. i've read about 35 pages so far.. it seems pretty decent... it's about a guy in teh near future who has autism... in some of the situation described so far i can really empathize with him... I was also gonna get "house of leaves" reccommended by khautz, but they didn't have it in stock.. andi can get it alot chepaer onine i'm sure so i'll jsut order it... sincei have another book tha'tll keep me occupied... buti relaly am gonna make an effort to read thsi in a timely fashion...

most importantly dayton is not seeming as unbearable the past couple days... i hope this trend continues...

i ordered a 2-10cd sets for $6... classical music and such... i figure for 6 bucks it'd be nice to have... you know pretend like i have some idea of culture...

i'm gonna go work on that book...

death is the end to pain...

been awhile... just not feeling the motivation... so i dunno.. didn't even post a picture last week... and there will not be one tonight...

friday i got ot see assemblage 23, they were good... a milder electro i guess... clear natural vocals... they did good... opening bands i was not impressed with.. first one was called PTI... first off it looke dlieka bunch of trendy highschoolers wearing ties on stage... they had two kids on synths... why do you need two synths? dunno... the music itself was fine... decent actually... the vocals were terrible... i could have done better... second band "backandtotheleft"... vocals i thought were decent... the sound blance/acoustics of wher ei was sitting a thte time mad eit sound terrible though you oculd only hear constant base... all teh detail in the higher frequency was compeltely lost except that of a cymbal... which doens't have much detail either... these folks looked like normal music types though... tshirts and dreadlocks... again assembalge 23 was professional looking, and sounded professional... andi gained some respect for the singer when i asked the sound baord guy several times to correct the balnce of themusic because it didn't sound right... more bands should tyr to do so... tha'ts a big comp;lainti have with live msuic in club, usually the acoustics are shitty... but what do you expect form old warehouses... anyway...

i got home around 2:30... then decided should start buying two cd's everymonth from metropolis records or another industrial label to support my genre of music... so around 3 i had picked out two albums and a 7 track ep to purchase... they should be here wednesay i'm hoping... one band is called heimetraede or something liek that... the other album is form Psyclon Nine... which according tothe description is an assualt on all sense... theni got a Grendel EP that's being released here inthe states tomorrow... released in europe late april...

saturday... mothersday card was purcahsed... umm.. sat around... talke dot Liz a bit... went over ot matt and doug;s watched "Das Experiment" i've seen it before but i still liek it... in german wi/ subtitles... base don a a psych project with prisoners and guards and the power struggles invovled.. and shit goes wrong... pretty well done... i liek the part where they shave a guys head and knock his chair over and piss on his nekkid skull... some of the acting is jsut funny.. goofy ass germans... then we went out to eat.. it was fun... matt demanded we go to a place with a bar so he could get a real drink... beer doesn't cut it for him...but dinner was good... i went home a bit after that i was tired after being up till 3:30 listenigna nd purchasing music... oh andi finally watched laural canyon... not terrible... part of kate's chamr is undoubtably her accent though... and in this she shed it... as did mr. bale... i dunno... i guess i was a bit disappointed for movie having both of them in it..

sunday... was fine... mercesdes won the grand prix of spain, soi was very happy... sister took the '73 monte carlo to prom.. the battery died... luckily she was with firends with another.. less vintage car that started... so sudnay afternoon my dad grandpa andi went and jumped it and drove it home... outback for supper long wait but i mananged... then sunday night tv simpsons family guy and american dad.. simpsons and family guy i liked.. american dad was lacking... in my opinion...

umm i need ot go to bed... maybe i'll write about work tomorrow... no promises though...

title's jsut a catchy sample from a suicide commando track i listened to for the first time today... no need to look deeper into it then that...

these are very dark times...

this weekend i did somethings i'm not overly proud of... i'm not too sure i want ot publicly admit this... but umm i installed linux on my laptop... and i, umm, don't hate it... the first distro i installed in the car on the way to my aunts... i'm so bad... then last night i isntalled differnt one since the first on was not good... i'm using hoary hedgehog ubuntu now, by the recommendation of Thai Nick of the 12 bit blog... and it's pretty nice i guess... i pains me to admit but i am liking it... i have it doing everything i ever really do in windows any more... and i have a sweet fish named Margo swimming in my gnome panel... and i named her msyelf... Margo tells me things such as "Cheer Up! Things are getting worse at a slower rate." which really brighten my day...

other than that... i dunno... i'm still in a bit of a daze wondering what i have done...
