Here's to new beginnings and ending in bliss. [Apr. 1st, 2011|08:13 pm]
(a.k.a. Deoxyribonucleic Awesome)
I had a moment back there. A moment, I’d later recognize, that a lot of influential people in my life have experienced, perhaps in their own way, but nonetheless… I had to stop and think my way out of a terrible possibility. I think I’ve done it, and this is pretty much exactly what happened. To me, the future has had it’s moments of clarity and doubt both. In manifesting destiny, one reality precludes the existence of another. I’m talking about loss; the realization of one dream can only come at the expense of the myriad other pursuits that would dominate a life. I guess it could only ever be this way, but I’m the type of person that dwells on the universally significant. In love this holds true - “I want you” I’ll say, “forever and no other”. In life this holds true. One look at me and where I’m at right now and it’s pretty plain to see. Guess who’s engaged in a never ending transnational conflict? This guy. And then I point to my fucking self. Awesome. Once I had an argument prepared for the hopeless. One day on a beach in some far away place I was thinking about how great life was and how lucky I was just to be there at that moment to experience the beauty and the peace and the serenity that those hours held for me. I can’t even begin to describe how important my time there was. I was so thankful to be there. It was one of those days full of elation and devoid of despair you file deep into the recesses of your mind because you know it’s going to slide by way too quick. It’s all too brief, you think the next day. I could have been anywhere else at that moment, but I was there and I watched the sunset and I took that picture and had that drink and kissed that girl. Days like that are so precious and precariously perched atop days of misery and failure. I don’t know what it is about some people and some ideas but if maybe one day I could show them a bit of my life I think it would change them. Terrible things are done every day around me. I’ve been that guy once or thrice. I don’t want any part of it ever again. There’s not enough days ending in bliss to justify some of the things we do to each other and ourselves, primarily. I suppose that’s a better place to start. I get bothered sometimes because I don’t have it all figured out. I’m living year to year and taking leaps and cutting corners chasing one dream after another without any real resolution besides “try to smile every day and see if you can make someone else happy too”. In the end that might be the only thing no one can really take away. I hope it never comes to that, though. So I caught myself off guard, you know… eventually I’ll settle… I mean… maybe - who knows, right? But I know I’ll be happy… I wouldn’t have it any other way. Can someone puzzle themselves? ‘Cause I think that just happened… I’m rambling. Gah… I think it’s about time I woke up somewhere new, though. That’s all I’m sayin’…

I haven't watched Salt lately. And I might watch the Expendables again... just for the part where Rourke's character is painting that acoustic guitar saying that it was for a girl, but she left so he was just going to smash it to pieces. Very dramatic.

The best part about Salt was Jolies characters assertion that she was innocent even when she found out she wasn't but the entire time she played for the good guys, who, in the end, essentially came down to her and Agent Peabody... for the record, agent Peabody's real name is Chiwetelu Umeadi Ejiofor. True story.

Someone has my stapler. [Mar. 26th, 2011|04:39 am]
(a.k.a. Deoxyribonucleic Awesome)
I had an office space moment about five minutes ago. I stopped giving a fuck... in light of... a collective agreement with myself. Now, this is probably temporary and during my time of not caring, I'm assuming I'll recover a little genuine happiness that I've lost in my tenure here but I am at risk of pissing off important folk. Not so much good... but as a result of the not caring bit... I just don't care. Pretty simple. So, until the universe gives me back my stapler... I'm relegated to enjoying my short circuited emotions. People might be under the impression that I'm actually working and accomplishing goals and stuff... pshh... whatever. I'm just trying to get back to not doing anything. Yep.

How do you know? [Mar. 25th, 2011|02:51 pm]

Good movie - really really captivating and intelligent dialogue. Something I'd watch again soon. Same old shit over here. Can't wait to get back. Dunno what I'd do without internet. Probably go crazy.

Hey, so I'm getting an iPad soon - the purchase transpires in about a week and the actual unboxing comes well after that for quite obvious reasons. Hopefully it solves the "my zune's screen is too small to adequately display media" problem I've been having as of late. I hope it does high-res photos well... I dunno. If not I'm using the device to zero my iron sights.

Vespertine [Mar. 24th, 2011|11:08 am]
(a.k.a. Deoxyribonucleic Awesome)
It's not often I like a word in particular for any reason, but lately it seems like I've been adding some solid gems to my lexicon. Today's addition was vespertine which is a zoological adjective referring to organisms that are most active during the evening. Not only does it readily describe me, but the root word, vesper, is beautiful and the latin word for dusk. Also Vesper Lynd - the bond girl in Casino Royal, played by actress Eva Green (who, I suppose, is really the subject) is really attractive. So yeah. Lots of stuff going good for vespertine. Not sure when I'll whip it out but someday maybe I'll use it in a sentence. That is all.

Can I see you again? [Mar. 17th, 2011|06:54 pm]

I was feeling down and out so I withdrew my notebook and proceeded to fill my head with unending ideas and countless words, undirected in their exposition. Fearless before the blank page, undaunted by the expanse of time and empty lines; the answers and indeed - the right questions themselves would come in due time. For the moment I was content with populating fantasies with my unsatisfied ambitions - dreaming of what was around the corner and tirelessly ensuring that I laid myself completely bare and honest. Ask and you shall recieve said the world to me in a whisper barely audible over the sound of the world crashing down around me. So I asked.

So this is uh... I never did learn the words to that song... um...
This is a really old thrice song... um... that was originally on Identity Crisis before it was on uh... Sub City and uh its called Madman, but we took it off though for some reason, but it's kinda pretty... all quiet like this..

our course was coarsely plotted on a map of shoddy dreams
but hindsight will reveal times moving faster than it seems
maybe I'm just selfish, I've got nothing left to give
I'm still a foolish boy - I've got a lifetime left to live

and I was swinging like a madman
not quite sure of what I felled
and I might never understand
exactly what it was I'd held

and I watched the sun descending from this weathered gravel roof
and I recall the sky once told me that all lies lead to the truth

so I'll look the other way and I'll turn a deafened
I'll talk of distant lands pretend I was never here

reality beads on my skin like a slicker in the rain
I feel it soaking in and I begin to feel the pain
I fight the urge to run to you this is how it has to be
we've got to step away right now, we're just too close to see

and I was swinging like a madman
not quite sure of what I'd felled
and I might never understand
exactly what it was I'd held

and I watched the sun descending from this weathered gravel roof
and I recall the sky once told me that all lies lead to the truth

so I'll look the other way
and I'll turn a deafened ear
and I'll talk of distant lands
pretend I was never here

and I'll look the other way and I'll turn a deafened ear
and I'll talk of distant lands - pretend I was never here

To do list [Mar. 15th, 2011|02:37 pm]

Vyšehrad is a castle located in the city of Prague… it’s beautiful there. Karel Capek, who is credited with the introduction and popularization of the word “robot” is buried in the cemetary just outside. Approach the cliff near sunset and you’ll be treated to pretty much the best view in town.


I think I mentioned it about a year ago, but I've got this 35mb panoramic that I shot from top of the cliff facing pretty much directly south and I have no idea what to do with it. Digitally speaking it's too cumbersom to display and no one wants to host it anyways. But it's pretty sweet. It's kind of like the 40mb panoramic of Machu Picchu, Peru wikipedia hosts. I'll keep it around. My Zune doesn't even want anything to do with it. Perhaps if I had something with a little more processing power. *shifty eyes*

One more and a startling revelation... [Mar. 13th, 2011|04:56 pm]
(a.k.a. Deoxyribonucleic Awesome)
I don't know if the heavens broke open today. Sometimes, I feel inconsolable - like I've been cleaved in two by unnatural forces and I must struggle to regain control of my senses. I lose focus and my mind wanders towards horrible ideas. And, conversely, sometimes I approach indescribable relief and satisfaction - like talking to an old friend, reminiscing about how good things used to be before everything went to shit. I'm not all about living in the past and I'm a firm believer in the notion that a heart doesn't quite yearn for memories - it longs for something to be felt in the moment. That said, previous experiences can mean the difference between living and losing everything.

That one's called "What's ineffable" if it's even worthy of a name. That's just what I wrote above the scriptment in my notebook.

So... I want this thing... and it's an apple product. It's 500 dollars. It's an iPad 2. I'd use it for movies and images on the go. I'm not going anywhere soon... so I don't need it yet and by the time I do, well... maybe someone else will have made a not-so-apple-product and I'll get that instead. 'Till then, macintosh makes the best tablet and I'll have to deal with that.
