  • many many hits this month.
  • parties this weekend will lack my presence.
  • college life is funny...parties, girls, class, mountain dew, all nighters, late night sandwiches, etc. fun though, fun indeed.
  • it's 6:04a.
  • got two hits from ucdavis yesterday, one from scott, one from someone using netscape 3.x ...someone who doesn't update browser obviously. odd. it wasn't on campus, it wasn't anybody in this house, or next door for that matter.
  • tired.
  • need to sleep, long day tomorrow.
  • i've got this beastie boy mp3 to download and everytime i start downloading it goes to about 1.4 k/sec and then slows down to a stop within a couple seconds. weird. need to start, stop, start, stop...etc.
  • rick rubin executive produced the public enemy-it takes a nation of millions to hold us back cd - he rocks.
  • the last track on that cd uses a beastie boys sample, a bob marley sample and the sample sample schooly d uses for 'get off your ass and get involved' on the 'am i black enough for you' cd...terminator x rocks deez. he's the public enemy dj, for those who don't know.
  • source material comp. is good. in fact most everything by astralwerks is good.
  • night time for me.
  • 6:30am, 7:30am, 6:30am...those are my sleep times the last three days, not including the overnight, when i didn't sleep until 9am and then slept for 11 hours. fuct.

  • 10-28-99

  • johnny liked the stuff i wanted (that which wasn't material)...thanks johnny.
  • i'm a lucky person. (note to self - i'm a lucky person because: .......)

  • 10-27-99

  • updated political action page...it includes the following letter to some politician types-

  • To whom it may concern:
        Here are my views, as a constituent of yours you should care:
    Voters don't care, and they should - do something about this.
    Education, on the whole, is horrible and the curriculum is a joke - fix it.
    The rich are getting richer, the poor - poorer. Yet everyone thinks the country is doing great - inform voters of truth and fix the growing gap.
    There is too much money in politics - get rid of the excess.
    We don't have a cohesive foreign policy - make one.
    The above are my complaints if you want my vote then you'll do something to make it appear that you care. In all likelihood you will be more busy planning your next $1000 per plate fundraiser dinner.

    good day,
    Chris Miller

  • pay check this week. yippee.
  • i want to spend a lot of money.
  • i want: a car, a turntable, a cassette deck, a super fast MD recorder, a girlfriend, a fat savings account, a job with administration that doesn't suck, to be free from inhibitions, a regular sleeping schedule, the will to study, the ability to read for hours, the ability to forgive and forget, to be a fun person...including while at parties, accepting of other people and their shortcomings, buff, a lot of time, the ability to manage time (not piss it away), in shape, able to run a 4:58 mile again, a girlfriend, all the nirvana cds, all the metallica cds, all the doors cds, all the ac/dc cds, all the soundgarden cds, all the black sabbath cds, all the ccr cds, a laser printer, a good globe, a picture of an atomic bomb exploding with the caption reading "it's good to be american", headphones with a frequency range of 20-20,000 Hz, a digital camera, new shoes, to be secure with myself, a hobby, a radio show from 12-2am, a respectable vinyl collection including hendrix classics and all the beatles albums, a world where people care, a world where people know what they are caring about, a society concerned with the long run and the small people, to do something that matters, to be recognized, a system of government that isn't inept, a group of friends that have the same wants i do, to live in a place where being liberal doesn't mean you have to have a messy house, to live in a place where neighbors speak, to be able to throw away grudges, to be able to spell without have to check words like 'grudges', to be confident enough not to check words when they are right the first time, to keep in touch with friends, to not be disgusted by people abusing themselves (um, i mean drinking) even in moderation, to be free enough to dance without having to mock myself, to be funny without making some kind of sexual allusion, to finally learn how to spell words like reference so i don't have to use allusion everytime, to know now that there isn't a double 'f' or 'r' in reference...just like i thought the first time, to have the same confidence with girls that i do while riding my bike, to be as accurate in comparing english stories as i am in keeping my checkbook balanced, to be able to bunny hop a bike, to be able to look back and not regret, the balls to put my gonads on the line once in a while, not ever be as closed minded with music as vern is, to bump to loud music in the now deceased 92 passat with phil, for everyone to hear the same 2PAC that i do - one with compassion/genius/personality/zest, for everybody to hear 'rock n' roll' by led zeppelin and know that what they did is such genius it's amazing, for everybody to hear 'car thief' by the beastie boys and realize that the world can suck because of 'all the wife beater and all the tax cheaters sitting in the white house pulling their peters' - but also realize that it can be a wonderful place because it has music like that, for people to care, for everyone to read at least one paragraph of the unabomber manifesto and then make a comment on it - but not until then, and the same for marilyn manson or 2 PAC or zach de la rocha or chuck d or noam chomsky or jello biafra or how about bob dylan or jim morrison, to be able to listen to eminem before looking at his white ass trying to rap then writing him off as a poser only to find out later that he's a person with feelings/thoughts/and all that gay shit which is not let in by most because of his color and baggy jeans, to be able to listen to 'love hurts' by nazareth without saying 'hell yea', to have the same drive as jerry rice/joe montana/steve young/steve prefontaine, to be as giving as phil, to be as smart as my dad/grandmother/mom/grandfather in no particular order, as eloquent as noam chomsky/howard zinn, to be a leader like MLK/malcolm x/che guevara, to have a world where MLK's dream of ECONOMIC equality is reality, for people to know that the preface to MLK's i have a dream speech talks about economic equality...not just racial equality because he knew it - and still is - a economic gap more than anything else, not to finish this paragraph - goto sleep - wake up and not care again - like everyone else.

I've decided, though, that i don't like the yankees...and feel sorry for the red sox. the yankees have no personality...they are a machine...too good, like the niners once were, but the yankees don't have a montana or a rice...just a damn machine...i hope atlanta whips their asses.

  • rode back from the last overnight, sunday, it was slower, but still good for me. i averaged around 17 mph...top speed was only about 28. i want to get some aero bars...when i went in that position i went about 1 mph faster, but it was uncomfortable because i had my forearms on the regular metal handlebars.

  • 3 girls have said i'm either 'hot','cute', or 'really cool' in the last couple weeks. bfd. 2 are taken...1 needs to get on my jock and forget the other guy, 1 i don't care about, and the other is as close to asexual as possible.
  • utter gayness.
  • drugs are bad. you are dumb if you use them.

  • thanksgiving is looking like a lost cause. busy busy busy...reminds me of cat's cradle...excellent book...see the cat...see the cradle? ha!
