  • well i'm kinda tired, but it's all good.
  • thom yorke ain't so bad. in fact all of radiohead ain't all together shit. what i'm trying to say is - if you want to come i'm not stopping you. those of you who haven't seen butch cassidy and the sundance kid have no idea what i'm talking about. that movie has so many damn classic lines.
  • i'm going to watch great escape and then do some english workshop type duties...two more little shitty responses to people's stories to go.
  • class at 12. phil will be here around 4.
  • my mind works a little fast sometimes...for example i'll write "with the..." and it usually comes out "withe" that's the most common one i can think of right now, but it happens all the time.

  • samuel l. jackson, de niro, pacino, bruce willis, joe pesci, morgan freeman, william h. macy, and a small handful of others are the best actors of the last few years. two of em were in heat. updated the movielist.

  • phil is coming tomorrow - monday.
  • i should get some action this week. or not.
  • forecast is sunny. she's a whore. tuesday looks like rain. rain shadow in full effect.
  • vern bleeds a lot, and i'm not talking about anal sex.
  • another quick note on heat - when pacino is talking on a pay phone in one of the scenes there are two cuts. in the first cut a picture of malcolm x is in the background. on the secon cut this picture of miles davis is in the background. michael mann and i should be good buddies.

  • so napster was up to 3 terabytes the other day and just last night it was down to a seventh of that. and in the last 10 mins the volume of shit on napster has tripled. weird.
  • the only time winamp skips is when i do something that loads video. a bit queer, but overall not bad.
  • i like not being woken up in the morning by a phone call. i like being able to sleep until 3pm. i like being able to goto sleep at 5am. i should enjoy this before i get hitched up get a white picket fence and join the 9-5 workforce.
  • jason kidd has a really fly wife. sports illustrated has out done itself two years in a row. next year will have to be a let down in comparison.

  • went to hattie and manuel's for some free food, it was really good.
  • the second train robbery scene in butch cassidy and the sundance kid really rocks. camera work is awesome
  • why not advertise propositions truthfully? "yes on prop. 22" should = "hate fags? vote yes on 22" or "bigot piece of shit? yes on 22"
  • had a great debate about reasons for not eating pig. don't want to eat it because it's unhealthy? fine. but because it has one stomach or is a 'filthy animal'? jeesh. i won't ever understand that.

  • it's a scorching 62 outside. that means my car should start just fine. was going to work on the carb today, but i don't want to do that hours before i need to get somewhere because of the great chance i screw it up.
  • my ea sports basketball game has almost caught up with real basketball. i've been on a losing streak.
  • my fantasy basketball team is kicking ass right now despite losing a lot of monetary value.
  • air, le french band, is good.
  • i remember in fourth grade brian grubb told me the french were all back-stabbers...i told my dad and he asked where i got that idea. i said i didn't know and he said that they helped us in the revolutionary war. i didn't say anything after that and since i haven't called the french anything except smelly and rude.

  • Denzel Washington - most attractive black man alive, so I'm told.

  • catching up big time in fantasy basketball.
  • i have no idea what is going on in college basketball. are they playing? is stanford number one? do they play with a 10 foot rim still?
  • and hockey? last i heard wayne was rocking nuts on edmonton. and marty was shitting his diapers. i guess that last part is still true because people seem to want him banned for life. i didn't think the wack with the stick was that bad.
  • i need to get some dough. when i have dough i need to manage it better.
  • question of the day - what should the minimum wage be?

  • B.B. King - Blues giant
    2-25-00 (01:10)
  • when talking to someone online it's easy to talk about two things at once - because of the delay. e.g. i send message about cars to person x, at the same time person x sends message to me about sex, i respond to their message and they respond to mine at about the same time...you can keep this up fairly easily because of the time it takes to type the response and the time to go where it's going. just a thought.
  • i think it's impossible for me to goto bed early
  • updated the movie list.
  • computers are dumb, but offer so many songs and games

  • updated the movie list. bond is the pimp. OHMSS was awesome i can see why luke loves it so much.
  • herbie hancock rocks. very funky.
  • miles davis is above coltrane now. the reason lies within my rating system - a particular artist's rating is based solely on the strength of the albums i own. i own only one coltrane album and four miles davis albums...those four outrank the one, thus davis is above.
  • one reason the beastie boys may never fall to led zeppelin is the fact that i have 34 or so cds of the beastie boys and only 15 by led zeppelin. the system has its flaws, i know.
  • Bradley sounds very much like an activist to me. whether his ideas, such as that one, work or not only time will tell. i do know that some of the 'radical' plans put forth by a man by the name of FDR were considered far-fetched. giving money to workers sounds better than the reaganomics of the 80s.
  • it's now 3:36, after a long talk with phil and a computer crash i will sleep.

  • Harriet Tubman - famous for her underground
    railroad work. all around cool chick.
    2-23-00 (18:11)
  • if i didn't upload my webpage anymore then i would write a lot less and would probably stop all together. so, for the meantime, i'll continue with this waste.
  • waste, fast, were, dear, read, sad, fear, car, tar, tear, was, seat, feet, sassafras, saw, great, better, bear, staff, graft, vat, beer, gear, care...what's the common link?
  • reasons not to work at a fast food joint: as a college student, i am above the commoners who are reduced to manual labor and service work. 5.75 is only 5 times that of the average chinese 11 year old who makes my gap khakis. i've got lots of money anyway.
  • they didn't hate my story. in fact one chick even liked it so much she offered her services in exchange for my reading it aloud to her while she was under the desk i'masickbastardishouldstoptheinsanity.

  • i read a whole shit load yesterday. none of it was for school.
  • luke is a good guy. pictures from the davis visit are here.
  • got a check in the mail today from my sponsor. thanks scott and others who click on that piece of crap.
  • "Today is a unique date: 2-22-2000. It starts with 4 identical digits, and then finishes with 3 (i.e., 4 twos followed by 3 zeros.) That pattern occurred twice last year, on 1-11-1999 and 11-1-1999. (11-11-1999 was an even rarer pattern.) But the next date with that digit pattern won't be until 2-22-2111, a mere 111 years from today. In other words, it's probably the last time you'll be alive to experience the phenomenon. I couldn't let the event pass without calling your attention to it - in spite of the fact that it undoubtedly exposes a material psychological defect in me (for even considering it noteworthy.)"
  • everyone will be destroying my story tomorrow, oh joy.

    2-17-00 (00:17)
  • updated movies list. updated some of the links to the imdb.com database, just because i had nothing better to do.
  • woke up with intentions of getting a lot done. it rained so i slept, but i haven't fallen asleep in class as much as i normally do...only once this quarter (for only a few minutes). it rained pretty badly. i almost got runned over by two cars, that be sucking. then i hit a huge pot hole, which probably fucked up my rim pretty bad. then i finally was on campus with just a bit to go before i got to my classroom. i was so wet that i really didn't see the point in avoiding it anymore. if you try to fight the rain you'll always lose, but if you fight its getting to you by not caring then usually you can win. once on campus i changed strategies and accepted that i was going to be wet. i ended up winning by the time i got to class. yes everything is a battle.
  • coming off the heels of my victory over mother nature i went to conquer the dry classroom. everyone had on a nice clean, dry, sweater. i took off my raincoat and had my kdvs t-shirt on. they took the bus. i win.
  • stupid bitch in english class talked today. i'll call her stupid bitch because all she does is bash other people's stories. (we are doing 'workshop' which is where everyone submits their story for the class to critique...3-4 per day). i can't wait till we read her story so i can take a fat dump on it - not litterally, although that might work too.
  • i actually talked in english class today. my story is a lot (thematically) like two of the three we went over in class today. back to where i was - stupid bitch starts in on this one story, which i thought was really really good. she said that the first paragraph needed to be cut out. she's the kind of bitch that starts out her critiques "i really have to take issue with...." or "i personally had a problem with..." and she says it in the most condescending, pompous, sycophantish way possible.
  • one time she did her little thing and the teacher backed her up and you should have seen the smug little grin on her damn face. oh god. i think everyone wanted her to die. at any rate she's still alive.
  • in other news jon got dsl.
  • fantasy basketball was doing really really well until the week before the all-star break, then key players sucked and got injured, now i'm sucking, or at least not as close to passing the next closest guy. all is well.
  • Dikembe Mutombo had 11 blocks the other night, that's fucking crazy.
  • i think the new jack-in-the-crack, i mean box, commercial rocks...the boy band one. because the boy band in the commercial which is obviously mocking boy bands, is just as good as nsync, backstreets gays, whatever. it's really funny how easy it is to make that music. pretty boys with okay under-matured voices are a dime a dozen...it really amazes me.
  • the quest for mp3s all over 112/44 continues...almost done. now i'm conserving space by reducing those at 192/44 to 128 or 160, unless the song kicks that much ass.
  • (02:33) my classical music collection grows, my harddrive space dwindles.
  • baba o'riley by the who ....epic. spike lee knows it too.
  • two people, never having met before, one a 'multi-millionaire,' the other a semi-attractive basically random chick got married on TV. you don't want to know anymore. it undermined every institution we are supposed to hold sacred.
  • i'm going to slim down mp3 list a bit now.
  • (03:02) i do a search for 'lovely day' on napster and up comes 5 hits. a great song by the one and only bill withers...only 5 hits. one is some gay version by 'lit' - i guess they were popular for 15 seconds. the others are by bill withers, but in parenthesis say (gap commercial) e.g., "bill withers-lovely day (first gap commercial).mp3" gay shit.
  • oldest mp3 in my possession? that's a no-brainer...trio-da da da. only mp2 in my possession? devo-whip it.mp2...that was easy too. of all mp3s which artist is most represented? prodigy with 8, but some are remixed by or of prodigy, so that's not fair. nine inch nails has 7, 2pac and david bowie have 6. beatles have 42. beastie boys have 189 if you count the ones i own (32) and the bs 2000 solo project (25). this could change very quickly though, because i downloaded a bunch of FSOL and gusgus tracks so the balance could be disrupted. i need a job so i can buy these albums. dammit. remember that anything i have on cd i don't have on mp3, thus led zeppelin is absent on my mp3 list. although there is an acoustic version of black dog i want. i digress.

  • a friend not too long ago asked for more childhood memories on my page, here one be...my first day at after school day care, i was in 3rd or 4th grade, i remember everyone was doing a project and i just litterally walked in circles with my backpack still on. anytime i've ever had friends i've only had one real friend and a few of quasi-friends. but, again, it's in my hands.

  • WASHINGTON (AP) - A single drinking binge by a pregnant woman can be

  • enough to permanently damage the brain of her unborn child, according
    to a new study of the effects of alcohol on babies. Although
    experiments in the study were conducted on laboratory rats, experts
    said the findings offer an explanation of why children born to
    drinking mothers can suffer learning disabilities and other brain
    disorders. The study indicates that rats, and presumably humans, are
    most susceptible to alcohol-related neurological damage during a
    period when developing brain cells are furiously building the
    connections needed for memory, learning and thought. See

  • i'd like to build a candle.
  • i have a labeling system all worked out for my jeans...so i know exactly how well they fit, without having to try them on...as we all know all 32x32s are not created equally. a number system I-IV, I being too small to wear...donate, II being kinda tight - no belt needed, III being perfect - need belt, IV being too baggy to wear outside, I only have one pair of these. the marks are put on the label and it's been working fairly well for the last few months now, so it's out of its beta stages and is therefore being released to the public.
  • i hating working with computers that work...i'd much rather take a non-working computer and make it at least boot up. don't like - chris i've got a computer that does everything really well, but i want it to have a zip drive, oh and you may as well format the drive too. i don't like doing that shit. do like - chris i've got a computer that boots up once in a while, whenever it feels like it...yes i know what you mean, they're like that...ha ha, yes well i want it to be able to run windows-ninety-gay and aol, because i know nothing about computers...you've got nothing to lose then?...that's what i'm saying...okay i'll do it. do like - chris i've got a computer that works fine i just want you to take a look at it and see if things are running well...sure no problem (i run scandisk, line up icons, defrag, look at the device manager, line up icons, delete unnecessary shit from startup menu, line up icons, and reboot). simple.

Josh said. He turned around and walked away; he left me standing alone.  ...it gets worse from there. A wise friend once told me that often people's stories are very autobiographical. duh.

  • being a good reader is almost as tough as being a good writer.
  • that lighter fluid has smoothed things out quite nicely.
  • spring break has much potential.
  • my wandering got my as wondering, where christ is in all this crisis.

  • my candle is shaping up nicely. lighter fluid is good - use cautiously
  • my story isn't.
  • listening to bitches brew.
  • shall return to working.

  • had an unannounced quiz in poli sci - sucked nuts. 5/10
  • i will screening calls from now on...if you call before 9pm i won't answer unless you start leaving a message. every weekday at 11am i've been woken up by telemarketers...usually their automated system doesn't even click over so it's just a hang up. i hate this more than anything, ever.
  • i was reminded about valentine's day twice today...1) $5 from my grandmother. 2) a smashing article on how to get some action this V-day...
  • on a related note, hot chick in poli-sci class (actually she's in both my poli-sci classes) talked to me today, just a random question "which TA has the graded papers" type dealio. i responded "duh, uhm, uh (barf on floor)...i mean uhm i think that one over there (barf in direction of TA #2)"
  • i'll write my story now.

  • MJ & Spike - best basketball player ever and one damn good director

    2-8-00 (05:00)

  • so i'm only about 1/4 done...i'll sleep. i'm not very focused right now. here's my take on being a good story maker - find a direction and a voice first, then let it flow. at least for me i'm not always sure what my narrator's tone or voice is going to be...i've found my direction though. a guy who feels alienated, recognizes everyone is just a bunch of fish in a stream type thing, but doesn't really do anything about it. kinda like me. not as wacked as deniro in taxi driver, not as young as the guy in A & P by updike. me in 12 years or so. not sure if i want him to go on a killing spree or what...ending could suck big time. but you won't read it so don't worry.
  • night time for me.

  • Flo-Jo "covered 100 meters in 10.49 seconds, shattering the women's world record.

  • i should work on my story so i don't have to worry about it tomorrow.
  • xoom upload server is down, that is gay.
  • i'd like to take a hemingway short story and purport it as my own...i'd love to see how the teacher would rip on it's tense change or sentence fragments, etc. but if i put 'written by hemingway' at the top it is transformed into a work of art. who am i to talk? anything the beastie boys have touched is gold whether it's  that good or not. just a thought.
  • i think that characters/themes are more worthwhile than plot, yet most people ask about plot first.

  • Michael Johnson - owns the 200 and 400m records. He has also revitalized track & field.

  • nothing much to say.

  • "...one of the most politically and socially conscious artists of any generation...."

  • updated movies list. saw a movie at campus cinema, watching movies alone gives one an opportunity to really enjoy how stupid some people are. while outside, rather than talking with a friend or such, i watched all the couples and friends who acted like complete retards, quite discouraging for the human race. movie rocked, even though it was 40 mins late.
  • on a related topic...some kdvs idiot gave vern and i shit while we were doing our show. he asked where the film calendar was...neither of us had heard of such a thing...there's an entertainment calendar, which was right next to the folder that he had in his hand, as for film calendar we didn't know. so we looked at each other and said 'what?' to signal our confusion or even ignorance. then in the most mocking tone possible he sounded out each syllable - "the film ca-len-dar" at this point i took out my switchblade and sliced his jugular...not stopping there i sliced off his head, while vern ate his entrails i put his head on a stake in front of the station. we gave each other a high five and returned to the programming. actually we just stood there and felt really offended. this guy doesn't know us, it's not like a friend fucking around, it's more like an asshole being an asshole to strangers. it was the second time he asked, not the fifteenth, we didn't treat him like a retard, why did he treat us like retards? that's enough time wasted on him.
  • santa cruz obviously hasn't happened. oh well. hopefully i get something done. might need to replace belt on the car's generator dealio. it looked like it wobbled...could be the cause of the start problems. or maybe that's the result of the choke...i guess i'll fuck with the choke first, that's free...then if that fixes the other problem the case will be solved. who knows. wish i took some kind of auto class.
  • i'm thirsty.
  • look over the webpage, top to bottom for some more pictures...finally got around to getting enough pictures to do what I wanted to do for this month.

  • Miles Davis

  • updated movies list. cool hand luke rocks. here's a new goal - 300 movies in da year 2000...i've seen 21 so far...it'll be fun.
  • i'll probably have over 450 cds by the end of the year too.
  • i'll hopefully have a job by the end of the year.
  • now it looks like I'm not going to santa cruz, that's gay, but the circumstances aren't really working out too well.
  • show tomorrow. having fridays off is nice, but the radio show still makes me wake up in the 'morning' (usually around 1pm).
  • midterm and story due next week. story isn't a problem, unless it needs to be good. midterm could be tricky. should go to library tomorrow.
  • i've sunken to an all-time low - went to jack in the crack and got an application. as long as i get money and free shakes i'll be happy.
  • if it doesn't rain tomorrow i'll get a lot done, if it rains i'll sit around inside after the show. since it ends at 430, instead of 5 for this quarter, i'll have time to go around to places before dark settles in.
  • we went four wheeling today in jon's 1960 land rover...quite the experience.
  • in the last week i've gotten about 100 emails, mostly from kdvs losers complaining about the webpage. i think it looks fine but all of a sudden there is quite the squabbling surrounding its aesthetics.
  • i should be sleeping sometime soon.
  • got fruit in mail, interesting, but good.
  • read more of the malcolm x autobiography...it's still good, it's still good (ala homer simpson when his ham flew through the air and landed in just about every type of garbage one can imagine...you had to see it).
  • garbage cd is good, handsome boy modeling school cd is better than i remember, ice-t og album is worse, and schoolly d is the bomb. old skool hip-hop is good. no matter how many albums one has it always feels like you're missing something. that's economics i guess...unlimited wants and all that jism, jizz, uhm i mean jazz.
  • night.
  • Louis Armstrong - father of jazz

  • John Coltrane
  • updated recent movies list.
  • at one time i was one of those that was saying movies 'these days' suck...up until a few years ago i was saying this. then i took a good look back and discovered that the 90s have been blessed with some of the greatest films i've ever seen...some of the greatest music too, some of the greatest sports moments as well, but i digress. pulp fiction, boogie nights, magnolia (i saw it in 1999 so it counts, even though official release wasn't until 2000 i believe), fargo, shawshank redemption, seven, goodfellas, casino, matrix, fight club, american beauty, saving private ryan, sixth sense, any given sunday, austin powers (both), pi, kids, beauty and the beast, election, american history x, south park, rushmore, fear and loathing in las vegas, gilbert grape, blair witch, scream, silence of the lambs, jerry maguire, good will hunting, unforgiven, jfk...there are more, i know, but i can't remember them all. not all of these are 'classics,' but they're all good in my book...a nice sized list i'd say.
  • i think the list is overshadowed by shakespeare in love and titanic winning best picture...it's a bit disheartening when forrest gump and the english patient win over pulp fiction and fargo...it's actually really sad, but the point is that the movies were still made, whether or not saving private ryan gets it's due recognition over gwenth paltrow's tits is another issue.
  • garbage album rocks. updated cd list...they finally came - no i did not spend and new money.
  • probably going to santa cruz this weekend. pay for gas and that's it.
  • kfc manager wasn't there, no applications. i'll go again tomorrow. i'll talk to in n' out manager and see if there is a spot open for sex slave. if i don't have a job shaping up by the end of next week i'll have to go on call at the shelter. damn.
