well it's all done, printed out and all. shit that was a little bit of
i should study for my midterm now.
i have work/class until 11pm tonight.
i have a 10-12 page paper due tomorrow. i love being a student.
in total (appendices and title page) the paper was 20 pages. the meat of
it was 16 full pages. that be the longest crap i done taken since that
bbq back in 96. i don't know what i'm talking about.
i'm more than half way through and coming along easily. i've wasted lots
of time by doing nothing in particular. i've got about 5 hours so maybe
i should just finish this shit up.
why don't you vote?
why do you vote?
uh, check out my poll in case you haven't already.
i'm about 5 pages through this piece o' shit and on my last guns and roses
i wonder what my life and the world will be like when i'm 60.
i'm all about working under pressure.
i'm all about not proof reading my papers.
i'm all about eating more chocolate tonight than i should have.
i'm all about moving pink floyd ahead of ELO.
i'm all about getting more pink floyd and them moving them ahead of the
stones, STP, deep purple, the doors, ac/dc, and CCR. it could happen.
i'm all about updating my wish list.
i'm all about coors commercials that have almost nothing to do with beer.
i'm all about coors commercials that talk about "the catch" (joe montana
to dwight clark).
i'm all about telling you what "the catch" is if you don't already know.
i'm all about ridiculing your ignorance before i tell you about "the catch"
haven't started the paper yet, but i think i'm done writing the questionnaire
and tabulating the results thereof.
jon just discovered that the paper was due tomorrow, i wonder what he was
thinking. it's all good though because he's got 17 hours to write it up.
i, however, have 12 because i need to attend all my classes 1) because
of a group project in the first class which counts toward our paper grade
and 2) because there is a midterm in my second class. thus i must be done
it's guns and roses all night. last week it was led zeppelin all night.
after i'm done with guns and roses, which will happen in another 2.5 hours
or so, i'll have to move onto black sabbath or nirvana, not sure which
so that water balloon launcher that hasn't come yet didn't come because
i didn't put in a mailing address when ordering it. this was the first
time i had any problem with buying something online and it was my fault.
oh, i called my bank and asked for contact information for the charge to
the water balloon company and this guy gave me the run around about needing
more information than i was giving him...i told him i needed the phone
number of the company that billed my account...he said he needed to know
how much the transaction was for and when it was, i told him it was about
3 weeks ago for around 25 bucks. without looking it up he said "i'm going
to need more information than that" i told him that the exact charge was
24.95, then he said that he wasn't getting anything coming up for that
amount...the whole time he was a real asshole. so i asked for his manager.
i told the manager the same thing "24.95 about 3 weeks ago" then he said
had a phone number for the company and he gave it to me. what the fuck
was that other guy's problem? he was being a dick for the sake of being
i hate the lakers with a passion. the officiating staff was horrible -
they made three really bad calls, two late in the game. the blazers still
won. i really hope they win the series, but i doubt they will. i have always
had a distinct dislike for scottie pippen. this changed when he came to
portland. here is his chance to prove to me that he's a solid, clutch player
who can shine in the clutch. he showed it today, but he'll have to do it
again in game 6.
if we got abc i'd watch the NHL finals...dallas versus new jersey, should
be fun stuff. i haven't watched hockey in a long time.
i have plenty of mountain dew.
watch the basketball game or start working on my 15 page paper? i think
we know the answer to that.
"ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
you fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
waiting for someone or something to show you the way
tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
and then one day you find ten years have got behind you
no on told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
and you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
and racing around to come up behind you again
the sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
shorter of breath and one day closer to death
every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
the time is gone the song is over, thought i'd something more to say"
-Pink Floyd (Roger Waters)
got a haircut the other day, from vern...i saved myself 11 bucks.
paint training was yesterday. would have earned about 50 bucks after taxes
had it been a job. this summer should be interesting.
i have quite a day ahead of me...15 page paper is due tomorrow i also have
a midterm tomorrow. then there is a 10 page paper due on thursday. the
next two days will be fun.
i'm going to update my wish list soon.
i have work soon.
reasons sundays suck:
everything is closed.
nothing to do.
church goers dominate the landscape.
i think i like the week more than the weekend, i really do.
just got back from a late night movie thanks to steve...he opened up the
theater after hours and had another free showing.
updated movie list.
going to paint training in a few hours. i'm going to be tired.
if i had unlimited money i'd get some fillings for my teeth and get my
car in good working shape. i don't have money though.
called my dad he never called back. happy birthday.
fuck the lakers.
one email today. white.
it's too late to worry about anything but sleep.
i just realized (thanks to my mom's reminder) that tomorrow is my dad's
updated movie list.
yea today was officially boring.
pink floyd is moving up in my book. the wall is great, it bears repeating.
had like three dinners today from 6pm-11:30pm. that's a bad way to eat
i think. i've got lots of food. had artichoke, breakfast burritos, pasta,
and sausage today along with a smoothie. tomorrow i'll only have one dinner.
maybe i should wake up in time for lunch. i probably will because the game
it's a good thing that the one channel we get is nbc which carries the
basketball games, if not i might blow up the world or something stupid.
i'm going to sleep. it's two thirty.
this day has been really very boring. it seems everyone has a life but
me. even work was boring. basketball was so so.
watched one movie there is another playing but i'm not watching.
i should start my papers today and get them over with. ha.
i'll just watch the fucking movie, shit what a cop out.
i was just talking about religion the other day and today i watched dogma
which talked about religion a lot.
updated movie list.
saw portland lose a 14 point lead. that was sad shit.
played some basketball today which was fun.
the show was run of the mill.
i've got work tomorrow which kinda sucks because i wanted to sleep all
i don't do very much while i'm on the computer. i'm not on the computer
very much either.
i don't like elitism. i am a part of it...say when it comes to music i
sort of am (to a much lesser degree than most kdviates), i am sometimes
with food, but my point is that thinking you are better than someone because
of your standards isn't good. on the same note i'd like to say that anyone
who thinks that britney spears has real musical talent should have something
bad done to them. ahhh yes, the duality of man. contradictory chris. the
ubiquitous inner battle.
hard to believe i spelled ubiquitous right on the first try.
i want a girlfriend to love and hold. oh wait, nevermind i'd rather not
feel bad for going out with the guys, get jealous when some other guy starts
hitting on her, or get dumped again. calvin klein - contradiction.
i'm hungry, but it's late and i'm tired.
i should eat breakfast and lunch rather than two late dinners. i don't
really have time in the morning though. i don't make time, that is.
i don't think life is a science, but i wish it was more predictable and
consistent like science. i'd like to know what breakfast has historically
made my days the best. in sports they have all these funky stats - when
glen rice gets more than 6 points in the first 3 mins, ate pancakes for
breakfast, and is playing on the home court his team wins 90% of its games.
if it were like that then i could find out what things i should be doing
each day to get the best chance at life happiness and alignment with god.
problem with most webpages out there is the lack of updating.
i just watched a movie for 2hours and 9mins...it was the fastest 129mins
in my life. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is the cool hand luke of mental
updated movie list.
everyone's gone, that's rare for a thursday night...at least in this house
it is. jon is with some friends and i have no clue where the other jokers
i'll have pictures from the trip up in no time...johnny is scanning them
right now for me. go johnny.
i think it's cool that jon doesn't drink anymore.
there seems to be a christian movement on campus. this week is officially
"jesus week"...how such a thing happens i don't know. i really (i'm serious)
want a satan week if they're going to have a jesus week. sure jesus was
a nice guy and supposedly a martyr, but satan stood up for his beliefs...individuality...he
didn't submit to god, i think satan is pretty bomb ass for not rolling
over and taking it in the rear from god. to me satan doesn't represent
pure evil he just represents individuality and not feeling guilty for fucking
up. Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest felt guilty for something
and if you've seen the movie you know the outcome of that. fuck jesus week.
oh then there's the "i agree with jessica" craze. these people on campus
are wearing these eye-sore shirts (neon green) that say "I Agree With Jessica"
on the front. in the aggie the story behind the shirts is this: Jessica
?Smith? is a christian and is happy that she is, so happy that she's making
some speech about why she's christian...pretty fucking ridiculous if you
ask me. so i was walking with a friend of mine and we saw some happy looking
person wearing one of these shirts and he asked "oh where did you get that
shirt"..."he he, i got it on the quad =)"..."oh, are they handing them
out?"..."he ha he, well, yea they cost seven bucks"..."that's a rip off"
turns his back and walks away, i do the same while still in disbelief...then
i burst out in laughter. so i know i shouldn't be such an ass, but good
lord it was funny and she was so cliche that it couldn't have been scripted
i'll get off that topic. apparently we have a girl on our track team who
runs the 800m in 2:09...about .5 sec slower than our school record. she's
third in the nation too. what gets me about this is that i ran a 2:12 senior
year and that was when i barely trained...i made up partially for not working
out by almost throwing up after every race because i pushed myself so hard,
but it's still surprising. i thought for sure our school record would have
been better than that.
i just looked on a few sites and discovered that the women's 800m times
for most colleges, even division I schools, aren't much better than 2:09...this
really surprises me, i'm used to having my times be worse than college
women by more than just 3 seconds. damn if i had joined track as a woman
i would have won the division II national title no problem. 3 seconds improvement
could have happened within the first year. i'd be the freshman phenom.
of course if i ran as a male then i'd get my ass pretty throughly rocked.
if i ran track i'd probably be running the 3000m anyway...not enough speed
for the shorter ones, not in college anyway. damn i really miss track.
so many memories. i loved just swooping on fools in that last 150-200m,
just taking them down. things were good junior year. then some bitch asked
me if i wanted to be her boyfriend and my track coach left. both fucking
i need to start running again. i solves lots of problems.
i want a sticker that says "question authority"
i'm going to run now.
so i'm at home listening to pink floyd's dark side of the moon when i got
this credit card bill in the mail and i've never even used the card so
i called the fuckers up and this guy answers. i tell him the situation
and he says he'll look me up in the computer. then he says 'i hear some
dark side of the moon there, right?' i say yes and he says that he was
just listening to it last night. i say that's a weird coincidence because
so was i, as i went to sleep. the world is funny.
i had mashed potatoes and sausage last night, it was good. first time i've
made mashed potatoes by myself. with a few exceptions most of the people
i know can't really cook for shit. my mom did a pretty decent job of learning
me about that stuff.
i think i'll make a sandwich now.
sandwich is done. just signed up for classes. it's cold inside. i want
to play basketball.
didn't get the kdvs job...the chicks did.
This is the rest stop where we got our ride back home from.
"X" is where I asked Katie for a ride. The arrow marks where we were
today's long day is just about over. it was even cooler outside today and
thus the a/c was only on for 12 hours. discomfort builds character.
paper is finished, outline is finished, next tuesday/wednesday nights should
be extremely white.
i slept on the grass outside of class today for about 40 minutes, man that
was nice. i was so tired i was able to do it, but it was damn nice.
work was fun for the last half or so. today was pretty long, but not too
shabby. got paid so that's good.
i want to sleep outside a few nights just because. i'm going to sleep now.
done. tired. hungry.
i should do my group outline now.
did it...what's really gay is when you start running out of everything
at once. laundry detergent, shaving cream, printer paper, stamps, sanity...i
bought 100 stamps the other day.
i think the united states postal service kicks ass.
i'm tired. i'm done with two pages. i have an outline due tomorrow in another
one of her stupid classes. damn i hate this teacher.
i have work tomorrow until 11pm...i'm going to be dying.
the sun rises soon enough.
"in the light" is an awesome song.
"bron-yr-aur"...acoustic tour de force.
we had an election today. well it was really just a vote on a bond measure...for
schools...i voted, of course. and i voted yes, of course. i asked the people
who were working at the ballot location how many people they had...7...pretty
damn fucking sad, it was 5pm. fuck you for not voting. you're over it.
i should start. ha.
at any rate, led zeppelin is so godfucking good it's impossible to express
it using language. just imagine listening to beethoven's 9th...the power,
the beauty, a mere mortal produced, arranged, conducted, and wrote the
whole thing. led zeppelin is the same way. four guys who did what they
did best and they made it all work together. they did it in an industry
that eats people up and spits them out in a matter of a year. they did
it for 10 years...and what stopped them? john bonham died in 1979, that's
what. it's like what stopped the real iron man's (lou gehrig) streak? he
got lou gehrig's disease, no joke. the beatles were great, don't get me
wrong. fuck the stones, ccr, the who, were all great bands, but led zeppelin...well
led zeppelin is just led zeppelin.
scott explained to me a bit on how to count music...i think i actually
understand a bit of it...as long as it's 4/4 i can count it. some good
that does, but it's kinda cool to know how to do it.
i should start this paper.
living in davis gets me 24 more minutes of sunshine in my day...the sun
sets at 8:18 here and 7:54 in los angeles. i think that's cool.
it's a lot easier to make yourself happy by making others happy first.
it's too much work to get really good at something in order to boost your
own self-esteem. buying stuff for yourself usually doesn't have the desired
effect. so, i've concluded that it's a lot easier to just make others happy
thereby making you happy. making people laugh is always nice.
i talked to the guy who lives in his van today...i saw him at kdvs. he's
dope. we talked about the van and how i was thinking of doing the same
thing, we talked about the hitchhiking trip and he said he wanted to do
that, and we talked about music a bit.
spring in davis lasted 2 weeks...it seems.
i've got 13 hours to write 10 pages...hmmm. i should get to it then.
played basketball today and that rocked. some people still don't know my
name, but i'll keep having to step up my play until they do. i've noticed
that a lot of them watch people play rather than moving without the ball...that's
the biggest thing, i think, that separates the recreational baller from
the competitive one. i think i'm actually getting to the point where i'm
not afraid of having the ball. it used to be that if i had the ball all
i would think about was my missing a shot if i took it or throwing the
ball to the wrong person or getting it stolen if i tried to dribble.
we had a bit of a tournament today in basketball. we split up into 4 teams
of 4 and then played two games. vern and i were on the same team with another
good player and one really tall guy who was basically our rebounder. we
clicked really well and won all our games, it was good to be on a winning
this paper is white, gay, dumb and stupid.
had my last day of bike class.
this quarter has gone by relatively quickly, so far. next week will be
according to precedent i should get action within the next week and a half.
led zeppelin will be my soundtrack to this paper...from led zeppelin I
to in through the out door...in chronological order. i should start now.
Disneyland in all its glorious whiteness
someone breaks their finger...is this a horrible thing, a mildly bad thing
or no big deal at all? i think it matters HOW the person broke their finger.
life is interesting like that. if i broke my finger while helping out some
asshole who still thinks i'm his friend move then it would suck and just
add (in this case) injury to insult. but if i broke my finger while having
wild sex with some hot french model then i would probably reduce it to
a testament to my pimping style. in both cases the end result is the same,
but with distinctly different feelings towards the injury. read "how to
want what you have."
the GM at the station called and is giving me an interview for the asst.
publicity director position. vern got the call too. this is despite my
turning in a last second application. in fact i turned in one for vern
too, thinking that he hadn't turned one it....we thought the deadline was
friday and then (on thursday) both realized it was due that day. having
left our cellphones at home we had no way to contact each other so he turned
in one for himself and emailed me to do the same. i turned one in for me
and then another for him. i'm sure it looked odd to see two for vern being
turned in. such is life.
i got so much done on my paper. wait nevermind i watched a movie.
there's a kenwood car cd receiver/radio that can decode mp3 files...so
you can burn a cd with mp3 files on it and it'll play the files. that means
up to 10 hours worth of music on one cd...being played in your car. nice
our TV sucks big time...we get one channel. the lakers game wasn't televised
up here i guess. it's quite white because i really wanted to see portland
kick their ass. maybe i shouldn't say that since i have no idea who won
the high for today was 99 degrees, most of the day it was in the mid-90s.
if you're in santa cruz you can probably look for it to be in the mid 80s
more pictures from the trip, and otherwise, to come, but for now - feast
your eyes on this one...once i get the pictures from the trip...including
vern's pictures...scanned i'll make a page dedicated to the trip.
webpages are great to document your memories. better than journals...well
here's the kicker! right along that bend is where the train wreck
happened. the box represents our position when the train stopped. the rest
of the train stretched a long way south along the track. but the actual
break in the link happened just about 6 cars ahead of us at the leftmost
part of the bend in the rail. the "X" marks approx. where we hiked to after
i saw the conductor approaching. you can see why vern didn't want to run
across the highway - there's a blind spot either way you look so you can't
see if a highway patrolman is coming. 1 mile north of here is Lamoine -
if you remember, it's the town where we first went, but it had no services.
from there we hiked south about 6 miles along the 5 until we reached a
rest stop. this photo was taken in 1994. you can see the river, the rail,
and the highway...you can imagine (until i get the pictures posted) what
the actual scene looked like. whoop whoop.
so i have a massive paper due on wednesday i should probably start the
skipped my first class. i feel so guilty. i suck. i'm over it.
i went to the official california webpage and saw some cool stuff. the
best thing i saw in my brief stay there was the small business financing
plan they had setup. there are a lot of resources out there for people
if they just know where to look. knowing where to look it the problem.
i put up a really nice little picture which has much significance in my
hitchhiking trip...check that out. more to come.
there's this guy who i see fairly often at the library when i'm working
there. we chit chat once in a while as i check out books to him. the other
day i saw he made a skateboard out of two skis. pretty cool idea and very
similiar to the idea vern, johnny, luke and i had when we made verns' old
skis into a sled that fit four people. i thought that was pretty cool.
then i read the paper today and see an article about a guy who stole my
idea to live in a van while going to school. damn bastard! well it turns
out that he's the same guy. next time i see him at work i'm going to talk
with him about it. this guy is officially the coolest person in davis and
really needs to be our friend.
i'm going to finally change the poll.
i like to have my room be a messy sometimes because when i'm bored or feeling
like my life is out of order it gives me something good to do.
i'm going to go pretend to work now.
This is just north of Dunsmuir. Highway 5 runs right through this
picture and you can kind of see the Sacramento River running alongside
the train tracks, which as fate would have it, actually have a train on
them. We (vern and i) were dropped off inside that box i've made. This
is where the cop told us getting out of Dunsmuir via hitchhiking is very
unlikely. As you can see the train tracks run right by where we were. We
ran down that there hill and jumped into one of the stopped trains...the
rest is history.
marina's bbq was today and lasted a lot longer than i thought, but it was
got to see the knicks beat the heat. if you would have asked me at the
beginning of the series i would have said the heat would win in 7 games,
i was wrong.
oh gas prices have gone down like i thought they would, but it took a little
longer than i thought.
my dad's a crazy guy, i've realized this after thinking about all the crazy
stuff that happened back in the day.
made another apple pie, this time it was for marina's bbq.
why when some girls tell stories about their friends do they refer to the
female friends as 'girlfriend'...e.g., "my girlfriend and i once went to
the superbowl..." if i tell a story about a male friend of mine and i going
to the superbowl i wouldn't say "my boyfriend and i..." or "my guyfriend
and i..." i've always wondered about that.
i'm going to be busy the next ten or so days. it should be funny to see
me try and run around and finish all these papers and still live. ha ha
i can laugh at my own misfortune. or my own poor planning. ha ha you are
so funny stupid white man with no view of your future. ha ha me laugh at
you stupid whiteness.
check the pic. more 2 cum.
Dodger Stadium, we would sit in the first tier by the left field
i'm going to watch a movie now because it's about that time.
i put in this massive map of west la...it brings back many memories. despite
living 26 miles away from here i spent most of my time here.
more (quantity) and more (quality) pictures are to come...
1. O.J.'s House
2. My High School
3. My Elementary School
4. Dad's House
5. Santa Monica Pier
6. Pacific Palisade High School, our rival
7. Westwood Village/UCLA
8. Phil's House
9. Mormon Church
10. My Junior High
11. Westwood Village
12. 4th Street - ran here many times.
saw sugar ray leonard and some baywatch chick here a few times too.
13. This way to mom's house (about 20 more miles)
Malcolm X called the 60s march on washington the 'farce on washington'...this
is a surprising take on something that is usually seen as a major civil
rights moment. he backs it up well though. what started out as a grassroots
movement by poor blacks from the south turned out to be an event co-sponsored
and co-organized by white people in government. as malcolm x put it the
poor blacks were not seen amidst the now fully integrated crowd. they were
told where to march, what to sing (only one song 'we shall overcome'),
and even told not to make their own signs because signs would be provided
for them. i'm not sure i'd call it the 'farce on washington', but it seems
it did lose some of its luster once it lost the grassroots element to it
it became less monumental.
malcolm x knows what's up, but...well he's a very interesting guy let's
just say that.
mlk was shot while he was lobbying for a group of janitors...this was one
example of his branching out to the economically disadvantaged, rather
than just blacks. fast forward 32 years and tom morello of rage against
the machine is in los angeles fighting for a janitor's union. fyi.
"blacks are too fucking broke to be republican" -ice cube.
i got a bunch of great pics from terraserver. well two are great and the
rest are just kinda cool. forthcoming...
i don't understand why people think it's so bad to wake up late. sleeping
is one of the best things in our lives yet everyday we wake up artifically
early, whether it be out of guilt, work load, people banging on the walls,
etc. if you like sleeping so much why don't you do it more often?
i think that if i had a girlfriend i'd write on my webpage less often.
i saw the strangest bug in the reserves yesterday. it was very odd looking.
maybe it's a northern california bug or something. you get to a certain
age and you think that you've seen all the bugs california has to offer,
then while shelving books you see something like this.
i have work at 3p today. at 3p tomorrow is marina's bbq, should be fun.
tonight will be like last night. tomorrow morning i will be woken up by
the phone ringing or by someone banging around in the kitchen. such is
watched gladiator tonight. updated movies list.
show was cut 45 mins short, but was still good nonetheless.
got some email.
i got another kdvs t-shirt the other day - it's blue. yay.
shit i have nothing to say.
the james brown track picked out on fatboy slim's collection is decent,
but the best thing is that fbs used a bunch of public enemy samples when
remixing it. well not a bunch, but enough for it to be noteworthy.
CLM remains constant.
tonight was extremely boring.
i wrote seven letters - to the majority and minority leaders of both the
HOR and Senate (4), one to the speaker of the house, one to governor davis,
and one to president Clinton. it was going to be about the NPT Review Conference
which is about nuclear proliferation, but i discovered that it ends tomorrow
so it's a bit late for that. so, i made the letter about education, the
environment, and nuclear proliferation in general.
i know how johnny feels about using energy - i feel bad when i drive the
car or leave lights on because of what it does to the environment.
my tongue has a gluey taste.
i think we should have an annual turn off your television week.
they made some grooving music back in the day.
all the people at kdvs think vern and i are gay lovers or siamese twins.
on the message board on the kdvs site
two of the DJs who play b-ball were talking about the games we played.
one went over each person playing and talked about their performance -
he lumped us together as one entity. the other DJ was talking about the
games in general and stopped to talk about noteworthy performances, when
he mentioned me he referred to me as "Chris (of Chris and Vern repute)"...the
other DJ said of us "Chris and Vern: And while I'm talking about frustrating,
let's talk about the indie rock duo of Chris and Vern. I swear they're
telepathically linked somehow, because each knows what the other's doing
at all times. Somewhat counter-productive if they're on opposing teams,
but when they're together, oh boy!"
basketball is the best thing i've got going this quarter.
so all the major shows for the season are over now i think. i watched the
friends finale, but only to mock it. i think i laughed with it twice and
it many more times than that. what a retarded show. i didn't even dare
watch nER. oh and then there was 90212 which was last night. i say 90212
because as you can see from one of the pics below my dad lives right across
the street from b.h.h. and his zip is 90212 and i'm pretty sure the school
has the same zip code. at any rate that finale marked the end of a generation.
10 years, damn. i'm not sure what they'll call the 90s generation 20 years
from now, we'll see. probably something like the GAP generation...it fits
in more ways than one...income gap, gap clothing, and i'm sure there could
i wonder what congressmen would say about the growing gap between the rich
and poor. i'll assume most of them know it exists and most of those would
acknowledge it's not in the best interest of the country. yet nothing significant
has really been done about it. principle versus policy.
memorial day is trashed because of paint training. gay.
the last two years right around memorial day i've gotten a reminder on
why one should stay away from women. i wonder if this year will be year
i saw this chick driving around today and she had a bunch of stickers on
her rear windshield, some were of her favorite bands (most of which were
pretty white) and some said things like "don't pretend you don't want me"...another
said "it's not pretty being easy"...she was hot and i did want her, but
i still wanted to run her off the road. good looking chicks can get away
with so much. it really is sickening.
so far this is one of the most boring thursdays of my life.
i called johnny, but the line was busy. i called stacy and she was watching
TV. i talked to vern and then he started playing equally mind numbing video
so it's just me and my music.
La Casa De Flores - my house next year.
Emerson Dorms - my home freshman year.
A nice park for various activities, including frisbee golf.
nothing exciting happened today. i went to work and then school, just like
i'm supposed to. then i came home and took the car for a drive.
now i'm back and really hungry, but i don't know what i want to eat.
work was five hours long today, but it went by fairly quickly. had more
fun with the patrons. i showed them satellite pictures of my house, the
library, O.J.'s house, Beverly Hills High, etc.
watched boogie nights. ate a lot of food when i planned on just going to
sleep after work.
highlight of the day was my shirt...i wore my "Let the fucking begin."
shirt and got many stares and compliments.
day was long now i should sleep...here are some pictures with little side
notes. more to come.
when it comes to girls i definitely have problems.
Here's a picture of my dad's neighborhood, it's far more interesting
than my mom's side of town:
Here's a picture of SMC (Santa Monica Community College).
This is the track where I broke 5 minutes in the mile.
"X" is where I crossed the finish line...those were the days.
This is my old High School, as opposed to my new one.
There were real Indian burial grounds there.
"X" in this case marks the spot where we would play basketball quite
It also marks the spot where a guy pulled a gun and asked us (some
and me on the track team) if we had any problems with his crew. We
played a few really good games of ball today. this was after i had my bike
class. i wrapped my handlebars with new tape and touched up the brakes
a bit today. next week is the last day and we'll be working on the shifters.
tuesdays are boss.
vern won't be at work tomorrow so the whole chemistry of the night shift
will be different.
GWB's social security plan is much like anything republican - stupid and
bad. that's right i'm a spigot, i mean bigot.
i've got shit due tomorrow, this is white.
basketball owned. it really was fun. under my strict supervision and daily
beatings vern has become a competitive player. the best day in my life
is when the pupil will beat the teacher.
this apple pie is more boss today than it was yesterday. it's also my dinner.
making pie, without taking into account timeis cheaper than buying a pre-made
one by less than 50 cents. i wonder if chicks will always knock on my door
if i make an apple pie. if so i'll make these things more often.
i almost forgot to do it, but luckily i remembered sometime while i was
eating my sandwich - i signed the lease today so i'm officially living
in la casa de flores next year. hopefully with vern.
i checked out two things from the reserves today. one is this keywords
in culture and society; it's got some cool little definitions in there.
the other was a video about toni morrison, but it turned out to be entirely
about beloved. it was boss.
it's weird how magazines come out with their june issues in april sometimes,
rarely does it come out in the last week of may. at least with the monthly
magazines i've gotten this is how it has been. it would be a really bad
idea to do this with sports magazines. although sports magazines usually
aren't monthly. i digress.
"i mean have you even heard our stuff? it's that good! we're guaranteed
a record contract..."
"i don't know this industry jargon mp, yp, but i do know that, granted
- the tapes themselves are yours, but the magic on those tapes, that heart
and soul, that's ours!"
man that scene was absolutely brilliant, it owned, it was boss, it was
bomb ass, it rocked the house y'all.
i just found a 12 plus inches long hair on my keyboard which can mean only
invention i can't develop because of a lack of skills...a regular size
and weight baseball that when hit opens up and flys significantly less
because of the air resistance created by the now open "wings"...it'll make
batting practice with two people a lot easier. i got this idea while watching
two guys in the park trying to have a batting practice. once the ball lands
you just click the wings back in place and it's ready to be thrown again.
i think it would be cool, but there is probably an easier way. like making
the ball softer or something. if you develop this idea i get 60% of the
person a - "how do you spell profit?"
politician "P-R-O-P-H-E-T, ha ha. vote for me."
i think any major decisions made by a man should be made very soon after
having emptied the chamber, done the deed, etc
i said i should, so i did. i made an apple pie and it kicks ass. well it's
not that great but it's decent enough to pass.
i've never been so wanted in my life. the davis census office keeps calling
me and offering me different jobs.
so i'm standing around cutting up apples for my apple pie and i hear a
knock at the door. i decide not to answer it because if it's anyone we
know they'll just come right in. then i think that it might be a census
person who has been rejected all day, so i go to answer the door and tell
them we already mailed ours in. to my surprise it's some chick who says
she has a survey she wants answered. i say come on in and then i go to
the kitchen. i tell her to start asking away...she asks some questions
and i go off on a tangent about society being in the shits, she laughs
and agrees. this is around 8pm. it turns out she lives in avalon and is
just filling out the survey for the management. so now she's helping me
bake the apple pie and we're talking about this and that. 9:20 rolls around
and i tell her that she should come back around 1030 and watch american
graffiti with us and have some apple pie. she says she'll do that. instead
she stays the whole time, until the pie is done baking. then we watch the
movie and eat some pie. huh huh. she left around 12:45, but it just goes
to show that little good ole southern hospitality goes a long way. oh we
had sex too. that's twice tonight.
it looks like we're (vern and i) are going to have plenty of work to do
for the summer. jon scored big last night so we'll have plenty of houses
to paint. we're also probably going to be the only crew painting for him
so the money should be big time.
i do more when i don't have time to do things. like the night before i
have two papers do i'll usually clean the bathroom, clean up my room, balance
my checkbook, write two papers, make a mix tape, and update my webpage
i just discovered that there will not be a paper due in my sociology class,
yea. there will be 25-37 pages of writing due within a day of each other
though - May 31st and June 1st. i'll worry about that later. muhahaha.
i think it's really dumb to put The Who under "t" in an alphabetical listing.
it seems no one would do this, but i found a major music site did just
that. even did it with the beatles. white.
"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with
that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus
now; I don't know which one will go first rock'n'roll or Christianity.
Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them
twisting it that ruins it for me." -John Lennon
boss, owns, and white...all my new terms. today sucked = today was white.
today was the best = today was boss. michael jordan dominates = jordan
something about the truly great - when the truly great step onto the field,
court, whatever - you know everything is going to be alright. when jordan
was on the court and it was crunch time you knew everything was going to
be okay. he's like the ultimate father figure. i remember feeling the same
way when the A's had the Eck. the Eck would come in in the 8th or 9th and
the game was over. put it in the books, he was that good. of course there
was the one exception, but kirk gibson can suck me nuts. you get my point.
perspective is one of the most important things to have in life. with age
and time perspective comes. problem is people need perspective earlier.
history is important.
tried to sign the lease today, but the office was closed and other problems.
went in later and the guy was still around so i reserved a room. while
i was there i saw marina's place. we had sex. it was nice, but i don't
think we'll do it again. ha ha ha. ok.
the world is my expense, the cost of my desire.
i listened to music while i was in my boring classes today. it was a lot
more worthwhile that way. you just run a earbud style headphone up the
shirt and through the sleeve then you lean on your hand. no one is the
wiser. you can do it in a small class and get away with it no problem.
had some guest speakers in class today from cps (child protection services)
they were cool to hear from. they actually had faith in the system. it
was a different angle than i got to see from working at the shelter. all
the people at the shelter were ones the system had failed...
did i say that i ordered a water balloon launcher already? well i did and
it should be coming soon enough. that'll be fun to fuck around with.
with all the apples i have i should make an apple pie. that would be good.
if you spend enough time on the internet you can sound smart in most areas.
this is one reason i should increase my internet time. i'm online a lot,
but hardly ever on the internet. for being online so much one would think
that i would spend more time on the internet learning new things and keeping
up with the news. the truth is i haven't been to a news site while at home
in months. in fact of the bookmarks folder i use most often there isn't
a news site in sight. i guess it's really important to know what's happening
out there. oh well. ho hum.
rain is stupid.
updated movie list.
our archived radio shows are officially online so you can check that out
anytime at www.kdvs.org.
(also) a rage against the machine lyric: who controls the past now controls
the future, who controls the present now controls the past, who controls
the past now controls the future, who controls the present now?
i like being able to do things when i want to do them, without having to
wait for a girl to finish up in the bathroom or whatever. i also like it
when people suggest things with the intention of actually following through.
i try to follow through with my suggestions as much as possible. not following
through is like your dad saying we should buy you a drum set and then forgetting
about it. it's white. it's like saying we should have equal rights and
then not doing anything about it. it's like saying we should buy a video
game and then doing it years later. i know lots of people with swell ideas
that never become reality. it's like saying to your girlfriend after you
break up with her 'we should stay friends...'
i think the only way true change happens is by focusing on the negative
while being aware of the positive. so far in his autobiography malcolm
x hasn't said anything to the effect of "i think it's great that black
people aren't slaves anymore, at least we can thank allah for that!" rather
he has focused on the negative. i don't think any less of him, but that's
me. i think striving for perfection is good. saying good enough usually
i'm listening to the jazz portion of our show from last friday. i'd say
it's pretty bomb ass. i should go in tomorrow and make a list of songs
we played. i should.
books. monique once got on my case because i've been reading malcolm x'
autobiography for the last 5 months. why does it take you so long to read
it, she asked. i think a book of such import is to be read over a good
period of time. it allows one to assimilate all the information. think
about it for a while. a fiction book is, in my expert opinion, okay to
read in a day. a non-fiction book which details the life of one of the
top 10 greatest leaders of the last hundred years should be given more
time. if i read it in a week i don't think i would be doing the book justice.
i'm glad i've taken this long to read it. i carry it to school with me
every day and read a few pages a week. i think of it often. if i were to
read it in a shorter time i would not think of it as much. i would move
onto another book and then think of that one.
updated cd list.
i wonder why i have no drive to do school work. ever. the only time i do
is when i have to, the day before a paper is due or such.
we sign the lease and put up the deposit tomorrow...as long as the open
spots haven't already been taken, that is.
last night's excursions were fun. tonight we made mexican food and watched
a cliche action movie.
monday we will hopefully sign the lease for la casa de flores.
i was in work today and i read part of a pretty interesting book 'how to
want what you have'...it's ripe with all the normal psycho babble and self-improvement
BS, but that doesn't mean it didn't make good points.
i think it's really bad to start thinking that you are better than other
people. it leads only to temporary happiness. the most happy people i know
don't ever have feelings of superiority. i know lots of couples that feel
superior in their relationships. people are funny like that. it's easy
to feel superior when there are people out there that just listen to whatever
music is fed to them or accept anything they're told, but it's a mistake
to do that. i do it too.
went to bored.com today and found a nice site that has satellite pictures
of the world...below is my house in 1994, the pictures are the same, except
i doctored the second one to make notes...
it's funny how irrational some aspects of our living are. if there were
one emotion i could remove it would be that of annoyance. vern today said
that he was annoyed when people asked where he purchased certain items.
he said it was fine to ask someone about their sources of information,
but not to ask where someone bought something. they both boil down to asking
for information yet one annoys him and the other he is fine with, and actually
practices himself. this is not rational, but i understand it. there are
certain people or things that people do that just annoy the hell out of
me, for whatever reason. it's usually not a rational thing, but it's there
nonetheless. this is why i'd like to get rid of my being annoyed, i think
i'd get along with people better if i was not so easily annoyed.
what is within a person's control and what is not? it's amazing to me how
much of our lives are not within our control. i'm not talking about the
decisions our representatives make for us regarding taxes and such, i'm
talking about our history. all those who were abused as kids did not make
that choice yet it will forever affect them. whether it means they seek
out destructive relationships to simulate that past experience or whether
they become disillusioned with the world and become social outcasts. the
guy in your fifth grade class who was picked on constantly because of his
weight did not choose to be fat. but now he has self-esteem issues which
will carry over to his relationships with friends and, if he's lucky, girlfriends.
it'll make all his future interactions different than if he were the cute
guy that all the girls liked because they think he looks like a cute little
bear. did i choose not to have a dad for the most important years of my
life? i'd say not.
what then is to be done about it? blacks in this country didn't choose
to be born into slavery for hundreds of years and then still be discriminated
against after emancipation. black didn't choose to be segregated until
the 1954 Brown vs. Board ruling. that known, what is to be done. not everyone
comes to the table with a clean slate. with african-americans i'd say it's
easier to help them by using affirmative action and other programs/pieces
of legislation to give them more of a chance to enter a more normal life.
but for people with other types of history baggage what do we do? i don't
know. be nice to everyone i guess. give everyone a second chance maybe?
judge people on their heart not so much by their actions? ask yoda. anger
leads to fear. fear leads to hate. hate leads to suffering.
This was taken in 1994, back when the neighbors still had an
RV parked in the front...
the last 2 mins of full metal jacket is probably the best last 2 mins in
a movie. from the mickey mouse song and its meaning with the burning buildings
in the background to paint it black by the stones...great.
updated movie list.
i'd be having more fun if i was drunk and having sex...so why don't i?
03:52...went to a couple construction sites and looked around. that was
some days you are willing to play the game. then there are the other days.
i could watch a movie at chem 194 but that would be too much trouble and
it would be lonely. watching movies in theaters by yourself is white.
saw scott's band play again. it was the same as the last two times only
not as loud.
making fried rice today. i like uncle ben's more. i think i've already
i don't like fridays. they used to be the best days of the week. track
meet, friends, victory, fun, and then i would go out and watch a movie
with my dad. now i do half a radio show, go home, decline peoples' offers
to go to parties and write on my webpage.
i played basketball by myself today. surprising to see that there wasn't
anybody there at all.
is anybody out there?
i guess i'll play some computer basketball now or something.
played some more video games. wasted more time. it was so frustrating because
we were playing this one level for so long and couldn't beat it if our
lives depended on it. then we finally beat it. testosterone was certainly
running high, with me at least. rage against the machine was playing in
the background too.
temptation is an awesome song.
i think when people use the excuse 'i was raised that way' they're being
slightly white. some people were raised to have their eyes open...great
for them, but that's just dumb luck really. i think that regardless of
how you were raised you should question certain things you do or do not
do. it was tradition in my family to burn three books every saturday, but
now i've begun to question that tradition...obviously this is an exaggerated
example, but watch out because it could happen to you....
i have no idea how dating works. i have no idea what is wrong with all
the women out there. i can see myself being single for the rest of my life
more than i was able to see myself with any past relationships for the
rest of our lives. rugged individualism. i want a van. after i graduate
and get some money i'll take a nice bit of a trip around the country, in
i remember when the internet wasn't shit.
i remember when nirvana was alive.
housing situation will be decided tomorrow (today)...we think.
they're trying to make nukes that don't require plutonium or uranium...'pure
fusion nukes' is what they be called. just drop a few tons of anthrax in
the atmosphere and get it over with.
how much can you know about yourself until you get into a fight?
when ignorance reigns life is lost.
updated movie list.
black sabbath's first album is epic. most of the great bands i'm into have
at least one song that is, in my terms, epic. led zeppelin has stairway
and kashmir, but there are others that could also fit...black sabbath has
warning...metallica has to live is to die and a few more...even guns and
roses has november rain...rage against the machine doesn't really have
one that sticks out in that way...beastie boys' car thief and maybe namaste
could qualify...soundgarden has black hole sun, the day i tried to live
and more....deep purple has the 20 minute space truckin'...creedence's
heard it through the grapevine seems to do it in that same way, for me...just
about every pink floyd song...the list goes on. my point would be - it's
hard to be one-dimensional and still kick so much ass. even thrash metal
acts like metallica need to show a softer side.
tomorrow will be long i think. first show in two weeks. yip yip.
i got paid on wednesday that was nice. i have a feeling i already mentioned
i really should take the car into the shop and get it checked out, while
i have the money. ha ha ha.
i was going to play basketball today, but then i got tired so i slept instead.
this webpage is going through the motions lately. hmmm.
vern and i are going to apply for a job as core staff at kdvs, that would
be time consuming, but rewarding. oh, i got more respect in the last game
so vern and i are officially members of kdvs. of course we always were,
but i personally never felt like i was a part of it until i started balling
it up. kdvs is weird like that. i almost felt like the new guy for a whole
year...b-ball has pushed me into the realm of an established member of
i'm thinking of getting a column in the aggie, it probably won't happen,
but i figure i could give it a whirl. not sure what i would write about,
but it may get me some female action.
i had a dream that vern smoked and just passed it off as a way to stay
warm. funny thing is that vern agreed that would be his excuse if he did
take up smoking.
there are a lot of hot chicks in my sociology class. i think saying chick
is the same as saying guy. some might take offense.
squab teen cd is pretty bomb ass.
wasted hours tonight on the video game, i sucked.
day was filled with boring stupid class with the same stupid teacher. tomorrow
friday will be packed. i have the show, scott's band to watch and a food
fight to start.
nothing really exciting happened today. work was a bit boring without erin,
but still wasn't as bad as a bad night at the shelter.
www.myfreecar.com - they pay to advertise on your car if you drive more
than 29 miles per day...capitalism at its best.
CLM goes down $1/16th today.
played mad b-ball today. it was dope. this time vern joined in. overall
i played pretty well. i had some good crowd pleasing passes too.
work was good. i didn't go to class.
i did go to bike class though. that was cool because i learned how to true
a wheel...make it not wobble. i did that for both my front and rear wheels.
next week i learn brakes and shifting adjustments then i think i'll be
long day today, longer day tomorrow.
talked to jamie for the first time in a long while, that was good.
get paid tomorrow. one step closer to being complete.
got a free cd today. and it's a good one too. this girl at the station
had 50 copies of a CD that we have at the station. apparently the record
label wanted her to distribute them to people who like the music. i liked
the cd when i heard it as a current so i jumped on that. i also got a compilation
12" (vinyl). updated the cdlist.
somehow some of the pit from a peach got into the smoothie tonight, that
in regards to dirt accumulation, i maintain my mouse relatively well
my feet hurt, but my injuries are fine. CLM goes up $3/4 today.
i shall fall into slumber. kill whitey.
played lots of video games today...jon bought a vigilante 8 for the N64
just a few days ago and since then we've been playing it. he's owned the
thing for 3+ years and this is the first game he's owned.
purple by STP might very well be better than core, tough call either way.
i haven't had the counter on my webpage for like a week so that's a bit
stupid of me.
the plan is to know where we are living by friday...it's crunch time.
today sucked pretty bad. got to work late because of slippery road conditions.
cut myself while reaching for a paper towel. oh and when i was coming into
class i was finding a spot to sit looking around the classroom. i saw two
so i walked down the aisle and as i was approaching one of them this girl
took the one in front so i was going to take the one behind her and as
i turned to sit another girl who was sitting next to the open seat put
her folder down on the desk. i looked at her and said 'are you serious?'
she said yes and that she was saving it for a friend. i then went into
another aisle and found a different seat. more stuff like that made my
because america's youth has been neglected i propose a stock program with
kids. in essence children will be offered up as corporations which you
can buy stock in. rather than dividends and profits in terms of money you
will get peace of mind and thank you notes. my IPO will be 7/4/2000. initial
bidding is probably going to start in the low teens because of recent injuries
that might affect my future as an athletic star. however those might be
counter-balanced by the renewed hope given by a new living situation.
i didn't win that writing competition, that's a surprise.
learned about the two stroke engine today while on the internet. that's
more than i learned in class today. two stroke engines are less efficient
and pollute more, but they're light and powerful. interesting stuff i must
say. i wish i new more about cars and engines and all that stuff. i want
to take an auto class before i die. i want to juggle before i die. i want
to be able to jump a bike, even a bmx, before i die.
subbed for someone at work today that was decent, but may have been the
cause for all my troubles...i'm not used to waking up at 9am.
it didn't rain today, but it was cloudy. white, but not albino.
i just had an extended conversation with one of the christians next door
about prop 22...interesting to say the least. marriage is only between
a man and a woman he said. once that was said i knew there was no convincing
that could be done. i pulled out all the stops and he agreed on most points,
but still went back to his main assumption. i said prop. 22 is yet another
casualty of religion.
religion - the thing that controls the masses and has been a rallying point
for those associated with the ritual waste of Sunday mornings, the assimilation
of cultures, mass murders, and genocide.
watson, the other half of watson and crick, was on campus today. one girl
said "i think he's the guy who invented the DNA structure"...uh that's
god, not watson. watson only discovered the structure.
updated movie list.
woke up late, did nothing. today was a real big waste. it rained some more
which is extremely dumb.
i did get the remote control car out today. that's the first time it's
seen action in a couple years. i'd say it's about 7 years old too. still
works great. radio shack does some things pretty well. make remote control
cars for the average joe is one of them.
had two sausages today.
i slept in my sleeping bag last night for no real reason. that was warm.
it's not supposed to rain tomorrow.
everything good is borrowed, everything great is stolen...something like
i really have nothing to write about. how boring.
saw a movie today. that's a first for a long while. updated list.
planned on watching gladiator today, but didn't.
napster is being white lately. quite white.
it rained today, that's white.
kosmic.org is gone now...they're on mp3.com to save money. this is also
woke up semi-early today and checked out a few places to possibly live...one
right next to where i lived freshman year. so if we choose that spot then
we could potentially get a meal plan and eat with freshmen again. that
would be interesting. i called the library girl and asked to come over
she said okay, but when we showed up there was a note on the door step
saying that she had just left and to come on in and check it out - the
door was unlocked. but her roommate answered the door and he let us in,
i think he had just woken up. we kinda checked the place out, but not really
because we felt like we were intruding. it was an interesting place. felt
to me like we were underground, but it had wooden beams and such so it
gave it a nicer feel. it's a three bedroom place so we'd need to get another
roommate, that's a problem. then there is the place near tasia's (library
girl) called greenbriar apartments. it's the ghetto of davis, litterally.
run by the overweight white woman with crooked teeth a mexican husband
and five kids...i'm not kidding i saw them all. it was an interesting sight,
but a real one. other than those there are ones we looked at before...the
indian run place closer to downtown and campus than tasia's place, but
not as close to the freshman dorms place - which is also where marina lives.
that place is a little dark, but i think lights will help a lot. it's spacious
and rent is cheap. it's right next door to the landlords which is white,
but our bedrooms are separated by the living room so i would be able to
bump the system if i wanted to.
i've got a bunch of sausage i have to figure out how to cook nicely. i'm
think sausage and pasta - maybe penne? then there's the hot dog type use...other
than that i'm lacking great ideas.
how many more times...i'm hooked on that song.
the kings got a thorough whipping. they didn't look like they felt they
could win. just didn't have it at all. fuck the lakers.
up here it was funny how they covered it - the whole time the kings were
getting their asses kicked they cut to laker fans on their cell phones.
made LA look really bad. sacramento fans are much better than LA fans,
this is a fact.
got my ass rocked in basketball today and kinda twinged my other ankle,
it was really stupid. i'm going to play on tuesdays (KDVS) and that's it.
no show today - baseball again. that'll be the last day, i believe.
i've been listening to led zeppelin I a lot lately. paul's boutique is
the best hip-hop album ever.
next week i should get two paychecks...i've been waiting to pick up the
last one so i can get both in one fell swoop. should be nice.
got my sleeping bag today. it's a long one so i'll fit in it comfortably
(vertically) and it's pretty compressible so i got it down to a pretty
small size using my compression stuff sack. you care, again.
for someone who is such a musical retard i sure do love music a lot. lots
of times i won't even notice certain elements of a song. i don't usually
listen to my music very carefully. i sit back and let it do what it's going
to do. after time i will notice more and more, but for the most part i
won't listen to a new song and say "ooh i like that piano track in the
background"...i also don't know anything about music theory. i also don't
know very much about all the stupid sub genres of techno and such. i don't
know very much about popular music either. when i go on the internet i
don't look up recent info on such and such an artist. yet people still
ask me about music, it's a bit funny like that. it's nice to have people
think i know something, but it's also discouraging when i disappoint them;
which i will do very often due to my lack of musical knowledge.
"Everyone has one special thing" ...that's what they say in boogie nights.
"cause you know why a you see H".... that's the end of one of adam yauch's
rhymes. besides the great delivery there is the fact that the last part
actually spells his last name - YAUCH...i just noticed that. i've had the
CD for about 5 years and i just noticed that. that's how dense this album
i'm harder on myself than i am on my friends...that's bad considering how
hard i am on my friends.
johnny stopped by on his way to somewhere i forgot where. speaking of forgot,
he forgot his shorts.
i'll give whoever is willing to do it one dollar if they do a word count
on all my archives...just the archives, not the editorials or anything
else, just the archives. it should be interesting to see how much crap
i've typed out...well most of it was typed out, some was cut and pasted
from other places...like those retarded poll results from the history channel.
maybe i'll be a teacher. maybe i'll be a political writer. maybe i'll steal
the lock boxes from construction sites. according to someone who knows
they keep a good deal of expensive things in those boxes. maybe i'll become
the punisher...a vigilante with my own comic book.
my rice cooker did a decent job today. i think uncle ben's rice is better
than the expensive asian crap.
one man's ceiling is another man's floor...what goes around comes around...i
think the beastie boys are prophets of the highest kind.
most of the greatest music in the world is or was influenced by black people.
you better recognize. kill whitey.
here are a few poll results from the history channel website...If you could
reelect a past president in 2000, which of the following would you choose?
Abraham Lincoln 27.0
Franklin D. Roosevelt 19.5
John F. Kennedy 19.1
Ronald Reagan 34.3
Which was the greatest amendment to the Constitution?
The Nineteenth (gave women the right to vote) 6.4
The Twenty-first (repealed the Eighteenth, which prohibited alcohol) 7.9
The Thirteenth (abolished slavery) 21.6
The First (gave the right to free speech) 64.1
Which African American do you most admire?
Martin Luther King, Jr. 40.8
Muhammad Ali 9.5
Oprah Winfrey 8.2
Colin Powell 41.4
that last one is pretty damn sad. so is the first one. the amendment one
is sad because more people voted for the repeal of number 18 than did for
giving women the right to vote.
might not have the show tomorrow, again because of baseball. we shall see.
went to a construction site tonight. man there was some good stuff. pick
axe, nail gun, bolt cutters, rope, duct tape, ladders, etc.
i don't like my bellybutton.
i hope work is cool tomorrow.
more people read this shit than is good for me. i can't write a lot of
stuff here because i might offend someone or it might elicit an email from
a worried mother and the like. i've thought about writing stuff, but then
not uploading it but i think i'd lose my motivation to keep writing. this
way people will get on my case if i stop.
i once had a friend named justin, when we changed schools and started in
a new school he told me we couldn't be best friends anymore, i was 7. i
once had a friend named ryan, one day i came home to discover money, my
hat, and some of my mom's things had been stolen, i was about 11. i once,
only once, had a girlfriend. god told her i was a bad person, i was 18.
there is something very interesting about music. sometimes i'll be listening
to a song and feeling a certain way and then robert plant will come on
and say 'this is a song about hope...' then stairway to heaven will start.
to all my friends: there seems to be a problem i have or a problem that
follows me regarding the ending of my relationships. if you choose to call
off being my friend please don't do it because of religion or your girlfriend.
movies versus books...i like movies more. they're easier to get through.
they can tell as much, sometimes more than books. they can use sights and
sounds. they leave less to the imagination - this can be both good and
bad. in the time that it would take a slower reader to read war and peace
i could have viewed dozens of movies and learned, felt, discovered, laughed
more. movies offer more bang for your time. this does not make books obsolete.
they are cheaper, better for reference, and nonfiction, but on the whole
i'd like to state here that i enjoy movies more. don't take this as an
attack on books, writers or book readers. i have many people close to me
that love, write, read, and have sex with books on a regular basis. this
was just on my mind.
great news! aol and coke are joining forces. oh joy.
i got three emails today - one about news, one junk email, the other from
johnny. my quantity and quality of mail has decreased in recent times.
i just had my midterm and it went fairly well.
how the fuck do i have 33 votes on my poll all of a sudden. that's really
strange. 2 people said they don't know who the fuck chris is. interesting.
more fun at work today. i think the customers like working on the riddles
while waiting for their books.
two months from now i'll be legally able to kill myself by drinking too
much. i'll legally be able to look cool at parties.
i'm thinking about getting a tent now. it's the kind of thing you keep
for most of your life. it's super useful at times. and for under 200 bucks
i can get a really nice one that'll house two people and their gear. i
guess i'll do that once i'm out of the red, but it's nice to think about
how i'll be bettering myself later. ha.
i spent too much money on food last month. i went a little crazy, it won't
happen again. sorry.
i've been listening to pink floyd and led zeppelin I and III a lot lately.
metallica makes good music, but i think it's white of them to go on napster
and try to find everyone who is illegally distributing their music. don't
they have anything better to do? i think cutting their hair was the worst
thing they could have done. they definitely sold out - it's official.
if guns and roses had one more album they would be above metallica.
nirvana threatens black sabbath. i want another beastie boys album to come
there's a poll on the beastie boys site to the effect of "which band would
you like to see tour with the beastie boys most?"...at first there were
about 70 bands, now there are about 10. rage against the machine has an
overwhelming part of the vote 22% compared to the next band with 12%. i
hope this is a sign that the beastie boys will be touring soon.
there's nothing quite as great as walking the walk. rage against the machine
and the beastie boys both do just that.
i find that i pretty much only wear rage against the machine shirts. i
think it's because i do the light color load more often. this is because
i don't have many socks and it's usually too hot to wear dark clothes.
you care, trust me, you really really do.
"These guys are old school metal heads who used to stand for rebellion,"
says a Santa Cruz, Calif. fan, Darren Littlejohn, who branded the band
"MegaMillionica." "Now they're so corporate I want to puke. Is Lars [Ulrich]
not going to be able to eat this week if people share the music on the
Internet? How can Metallica be so freaking conservative and yuppified now
when they started out with Kill 'Em All? Listen to that album and consider
this: Metallica has sold out, turned their backs on who they were, and
Some fans expressed their anger during the chat, and to that, Ulrich said,
"For the doubters out there, Metallica will carry on for the next 20 years.
Whether you're around for the ride or not, that's your problem, not ours."
marie's cds on ebay is over 10800 now. crazy.
The outspoken rapper says downloading music has caused a much-needed revolution
in the music industry. He writes, "Companies like Napster are creating
new fan interest in the acquisition of music, as well as establishing an
infrastructure that previously was non-existent for unknown artists." He
goes on to say, "This is a prime opportunity for artists to understand
that they can operate beyond the naïve slave or limited employment
positions of the old music business templates."
chuck d kicks your ass.
it's funny how just after i mentioned the metallica stuff i found it on
the beastie boys newsgroup.
in the immortal words of sosa (from scarface) "just don't fuck me."
do you know who rocks the house? Chris Webber rocks the house. that performance
was big time. now the kings are 2-2 against the lakers. it all comes down
the last game. man the kings fucking kick ass. i hate the lakers and kobe
bryant more than ever now. biggest problem is that shaq won't be missing
his shots when he comes home...it's gonna be close. very close.
i feel born again, not christian. now that i don't have a place to live
for next year i'm forced to reinvent my life. i see good things on the
one of those good things is the homework that is due tomorrow. i should
start it now.
how great is pink floyd?!
there's this really hot chick in my poli sci 112 class (that's the good
one). well i sat next to her today and she said something to me. that was
the other highlight was at work. first off i work with another hottie and
we're cool. but the cool part was when i was checking out a book for this
girl who i had talked with a few nights ago. vern and i actually were talking
with her during work because it wasn't busy. she's also a hottie. at any
rate she asked me how i was and i said pretty good except i have no idea
where i'm living next year...she gave me the phone number for her landlord
because she is going to be moving out next year and she lives in a three
bedroom place. after giving me the phone number she told me where it was
and then wrote down her address. after that she said that she may as well
give me her phone number too. then she told me i should call her or something.
who knows what she meant by this, but i was pretty taken aback. i saw her
later, after my bike class, and we talked for about 10 mins about nothing
in particular. i gotta start asking these people over.
it seems like i have very little time these days. tuesday i'm gone from
12-8p then i'll usually play some basketball with KDVS, not today of course
because of the kings game. wednesday i'm gone from 12-11p because of class
and work. thursday 12-4:30, friday 12-5p, monday 12-6...this is a lot less
time than last quarter. i picked up 4 more units, 15 hours of class and
the bike class.
i have a midterm thursday and homework due tomorrow. i still haven't started.
money, get away. get a good job with more pay and you're OK. money it's
a gas. grab that cash with both hands and make a stash. new car, caviar,
four star daydream, think i'll buy me a football team. money get back.
i'm alright jack keep your hands off my stack. money it's a hit. don't
give me that do goody good bullshit. i'm in the hi-fidelity first class
travelling set. and i think i need a lear jet. money it's a crime. share
it fairly, but don't take a slice of my pie. money so they say. is the
root of all evil today. but if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that
they're giving none away.
it's weird - i'll probably be living with vern next year a couple months
ago i thought he was the last person i was going to live with because of
the whole england thing...of course he could still go, in which case i'd
have to find some really hot chick roommate. woe is me.
the new garbage album deserves its props.
anyone have a good mnemonic device for subjectively vs. objectively?
my hands are dirty ever tuesday and wednesday. yay.
well happy hard shit on a stick. that just came into my head...sorry. any
way there's no way in hell i'm living with jon and monique next year so
i'm either bunking up with vern and someone else or finding a place on
my own. this is a really good opportunity for me to get depressed. ain't
going to happen.
i'm lucky to have a friend like phil. i friend who has never, nor ever
will screw me over.
pink floyd is great.
remind me what a good relationship is again. friend or otherwise...
Marx knew what he was talking about.
i went to the library and had my walkman on. while i was going through
the sensors my headphones gave out a high pitched sound at a low volume.
it was a little weird. "radio is silent yet it fills the air with noises."
i had something i wanted to say. dammit.
i have a new poll.
when i sellout, start working 9-5, get married, and have 2 kids i won't
have any time for myself. that will suck. i'm glad i don't have a girlfriend
who is around all the time, i'd regret it later.
there have been time when i've wanted guns and roses to be lower in my
rankings, but the fact is that they kick ass.
oh, led zeppelin is above the beastie boys now. it was a long time coming,
i just officially moved the cds the other day.
there's something about "no shelter" that really grooves. great song. view
the world from american eyes. americanize.
have i ever said that music is the shit?
made more guacamole yesterday. yum. useless information.
i'm taking two classes on a pass/no pass basis. god i hate this teacher.
i think i already talked about this today. she's from stanford. i now hate
i was just served the ultimatum - i am allowed to stay with jon and monique,
but they will be inviting georgia (a girl for whom i have a previously
stated dislike) or i can go out on my own and find a place. i won't dwell
on how shitty the situation is.
i wish i had a van.
well somehow my weekends are being taken up really quickly. pretty soon
i won't have any weekends for myself.
i need to take the car in for a little check up. more of a preventative
type thing. maybe that should happen when i have money. maybe debt doesn't
didn't play basketball today, but i did return the white sleeping bag.
the day that i went to rei to buy the sleeping bag i saw a train passing
by...that would be the same rail that we took out of davis...it was pretty
cool because i remember looking out of the train and seeing rei and costco
while we were on the train. even better than that, though, was that while
i was looking at it i saw someone inside one of the box cars. it rocked.
on the way home i saw two hitchhikers as well.
i had a midterm today.
i got my grandfather's book today. pretty crazy stuff.
i officially despise my pol sci 164 and 170 teacher...same person...same
lectures...different classes...same annoying habits of staying off the
topic. she's always talking about the paper. she's always talking about
polling methods and statisical methods. is this poli sci or what?
april updates would be here.
i'm going to the library.
