I know it's your plan to try and piss people off by writing these reviews, but it doesn't make sense. You criticize all music. What do you listen to that is so good. Give me some bands and im sure i could write as much bullshit about them as you do. Thanks for amuzing me with your stupidity.

no amount of commentary will do stuff.

One for the ages

I put this away message together while waiting to see if I had to go to sleep or not:

One basic tennant of any legal system is that none may ignore the law

sigh... the internet is a festering cesspit comprised of atrocious grammar and fetid spelling. I am going to sleep in the hopes that, at some point in the distant future, the university's administrators see the Mack truck of a snow storm headed our way and call "Game Off" before little Jimmy gets run over while trying to match Todd's call of "from just in front of the mailbox, bounced off the ground and swished to fall into Mrs. Apfelsaft's flowerbed."

Yeah it was a long way to go for a HORSE joke, but that's okay, you don't have to laugh at it.

go go gadget internet retard

those sprays do work. they add an unnoticable gloss that
creates an overexposure of your plate. there is no law against altering your plates, as long as the number is visable to the eye. i do not enjoy robot enforcers. i do not enjoy robot check-out lanes at the store. i walk past over 100 cameras a day on the streets of the city. I am famous.

Sigh. You go from the laser guided traffic tickets to convenience at checkout lines? How about the anonymous nature of self checkout? All the porn and condoms you can buy and nobody has to see it. Self checkout is a godsend when you don't have to deal with people who don't trust it. I was always sick of waiting in line at those behind people who clearly had no business using them, checking out 300 items or more all the while doubting every price they showed... list goes on. Anyway, I don't care about how many damn cameras you walk past. I walk past the same 10 or 20 cameras every day, the people behind them probably know my "routine" and all that. You know what, though? I don't care. Neither should you.

In other news, comments are, according to blogger, now easier to post. Chop chop!

im up too 2500+ items copied right now. Good luck with dial up :)

Look, I'm sick of the internet. I am sick of everyone's horrible grammar and spelling. You want English? Go read this. Just the opening sentence would be fine.

I win.

Shut up, internet

Ditto on the script. Open source would be nice so I could adapt it to, umm... candid photos?

No. Shut up.


Seriously, I want off

MacAddict Forum Post

HOW DO YOU SPELL WARRANTY THAT WRONG? Logical flaws aside, that person should be ignored just for spelling.

Oooh. I should be granted peremptory challenges for internet users.

Saw a movie

Yeah, we went to Constantine this evening (Jeff, Jason, and myself -- I never realized I am the odd man out with the J's). Definitely worth seeing, I'd recommend it, especially if you don't have any expectations. Don't take that as meaning not having any positive expectations, I mean if you don't have any expectations.

Also, Keanu Reeves is not a terrible actor. Everyone needs to stop saying that. Sean Penn is far worse... I mean, come on, watch the preview for The Translator. He's terrible. Hell, they said the word "translator" in that preview and I knew that would be the title. he's so terrible! SO TERRIBLE! And what was that awful movie about the Navy? Horrid. Moreover, professional video gamers getting "a taste of boot camp?" No, I watched that and knew it was crap. Enraged by G4.

Daniel Ewing thinks so...

So the question is, why doesn't the rest of the Duke population see a rivalry?

On playing against Maryland:
"Over the last couple of years, it has been a big rivalry between us. Both teams get up to play each other, so it is going to be a tough game every time we meet. Both teams have good players, both teams always get up for the game and it is going to be a pretty good rivalry."

I also made this

Not Quite Goofing Off

I had a distortion track to run alongside the "chorus" and "bridge" sections, but it got really screwed up tonally and in terms of its timing. It's probably for the better, because I really didn't play it very well, either. In fact, I'm not even proud of the bass line, per se, as it is exceedingly difficult to record things when you have no monitor. Stupid 1:30 am. Anyway, I do kind of like it, maybe I'll redo it sometime.

And you should be thankful, should you choose to listen to it, that I didn't put the horridly awful key-of-B metal riff in at the end to atone for whatever. :-!

I made this

So I'm trying to record music again, and instead of actually playing a bass line that makes coherent sense, I decide to bust out some chops I developed that use the envelope filter on my processor.


I'm such a nerd

I found a replacement driver via slashdot today that allows me to scroll on my iBook in a manner only just announced on the PowerBook G4: using two fingers at a time. I'm proud of myself because it's really quite cool, quite handy, and, most importantly, it was free and required using the terminal to install. Go nerd!

In other news, I was sick Wednesday. Now I am not. Uhh... I guess that's about that.

More CCJS 452 notes from 1/27

Word, bitch: Phantoms like a motherfucker!

oh so many hours

I'm in the filthy Electronic Media Center for the evening. 5:30 to 10:00 pm, for all intents. I'm not even sure what I'm going to do with myself for four and a half hours. I brought my CDs with me because I knew about this in advance, and I am listening to Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence because I am some kind of prog metal fanboy.

Could be worse.

I wish I had brought my bass. I wish I had ______, for that matter. Something... to do. I have two tasks: keep the lab open until 9 so that one girl can come back, and train Sue how to do checkouts and run the lab. The latter will last from maybe 6:30 to 7:00. Yeah, fun holler, represent.

Word, bitch! Phantoms like a mofo.

I did something amusing on the wall for here. It's a notice. We have a severe problem with people misusing our loaner equipment in this office. Right now, for example, one of our digital video cameras (the newest and best model) is missing without a trace. AWOL, if you will. Since I am fed up with being jerked around by the art department students, I won't stand for this. Much less will I stand for it from coworkers. Thus, the notice:


Did you check out the DV-6?

I only ask because I can't seem to find it or any record of where it went.

I mean, I'm only trying to keep the place running well.

No, no no no, it's not your job to help me.

I am schvitzing all over the place up here though because the camera cost a lot of money and, you know, these days you can't count on funding to replace lost items or any of that

What am I saying, it's not a trouble, don't bother yourself. I mean, we'll all only get fired but really, you shouldn't bother yourself with trying to figure out where it went.

All that in progressively smaller text, from 36 on down to 12. Nothing like Jewish guilt, I hear, might as well try it.

But then I drew this:


It's only going to get worse, people.

Natural Light

Is there any way to wake up refreshed in the morning? What's the secret? I woke up at 8:50 of my body's own volition, meaning I was done sleeping, and I still feel terrible.

Stupid sleep.
