So, it snowed like hell last night and this morning. As a result, I spent a futile 30 mintutes trying to free my vehicle from the wrath of the snow gods. Perhaps my lamb sacrifice of last week was not of ample sufficiency. I shall next time sacrifice a nut.

After realizing the car was going nowhere but either my parking spot or the ten feet of space behind it, or stuck in two feet of wet snow, I decided to call it a day, at 8:30 am. So I'm not at work. I guess this is oneof my sick days or something. Would have rather used it when I was close to death, but hey, mini vacation!

I fu\igure this is a good opportunity to work on some tunes and get some shiznat organized for my next set.

And maybe watch Fubar. Give'r.

As if I needed an internet quiz top figure that out: I'm an agnostic. The interesting thing is that I scored second on satanism. PRobably a result of all that self centered free will crap I answered.

GOod day!

You scored as agnosticism. You are an agnostic. Though it is generally taken that agnostics neither believe nor disbelieve in God, it is possible to be a theist or atheist in addition to an agnostic. Agnostics don't believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof).

Agnosticism is a philosophy that God's existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.

Remember Mac OS System 6 and Windows 3.1? Remember the simple yet effective icons and design?

I just found out who the perosn behind it is: Susan Kare.

These icons served the world for a good few years and basically revolutionized how an OS interface should look.

Using simplicity to convey binary metaphors on everything from delete to undo, this woman deserves a lot of credit.

You never really think of the face behind the design of these older OSs, especially when the design was so minimal/black & white/simple/etc.

Let the good times roll!

Despite the poor acoustics and lack of floor space at the venue (Burton Cummings Theatre) it was a hell of an awesome show. That and the fact that the place was over-run by kids/scenesters who are only there to feel cool and probably a) can't tell the difference between greenday and BR and b) most liekly have no clue what BR are singing about.

It was nice to be able to see them here in Wpg and not have to travel to see them, considering their popularity.

They played a good long set with a ton of stuff old and new...
They did it up proper.

In fact, basically all of my fave tunes were belted out. Off the top of my head, "Evangeline" and "Bored and Extremely Dangerous" were the only tracks I would have really liked to hear but didn't.

Anyhoo.. good times. Hope to see them again someday.

Rock on bitches.

Dinger, you missed out ya Nunavutian biotch!

Well, its been a while since I've posted. Actually, its been a couple of weeks. I've been uber busy with work, getting ready for my set last week, watching Law & Order, and fucking around. Oh yeah, and being deathly ill for a few days.

But, I'm all good now. Clickity-Clow bitches!

Anyhoo, a couple weekends ago was BeerWeedPsy. Fucking awesome times there. John did it up nicely with the festivities. Southern Comfort was plentiful. Got a chance to take me new car on the highway, and it handles very nicely. Didn't hit any deer, which is nice.

Last weekend I played at RAVEN Fridays. The set went decently. I had a couple fo new tracks to play, so it was nice to have some fresh material. One track I actualy wrote the night of the set. A remix of Borat's theme song from the Ali G show. I basically threw down tyhe structure of the track and got a good loop going. It went off well, and the response was pretty good. I'm going to develop that track a bit more in the future. However, as far as finishing that thrack, I have got about 10 or so that need to be done first!

I didn't go to the megarave because I didn't feel like spending $90+ on myself and Amy to go to a rave that neither of us were really passionate about. Besides, the money that was supposed to be for that party was spend on Bad REligion tickets. Good trade off I think, considering none of the headliners at Scream really appealed to me in any way.

Had a little halloween party at my place last night (Halloween Night). It went well, although we had to wrap shit up around 12 because basically everyone had to work or go to school. Went quite well once everyone got a little drunkskies. Kitchen floor turned into a little lake as a result of a fierce batween between good and evil. But thats a different story! Anyhoo, good times!

Going to drop on by this club night tommorow. Shall be grand!

GIv'ver shit fuckers.

Well, finally got a car. No more car shopping (though it was reasonably entertaining yet somewhat depressing [as a result of the fact that I can't get a sports car or certain (non practical) cars that I would have goten otherwise]).

But yes, got a car that has the sporty atmosphere that I wanted, the reasonable balls that I wanted, the handling that I wanted, and the sunroof that I needed. Oh yeah, and ample room for a baby stroller in the trunk, and at elast a couple of car seats in the back for when Amy and I decide to propogate our species further!

So, yes. On to what I got. T'is a 2001 Mazda Protege LX2. Its the ideal car, and although more than we planned on spending, is well worth going broke-ass over.

Its got the body of the Mazdaspeed, lo-profile tires, decent rims for the time being, a mildly awesome sound-system, and plenty of acceleration in comparison to the shit-horses that i've driven previously.

Some other bonuses include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Stereo, Dual Air Bag, CD Player, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Tinted Glass, Tilt Wheel, Spoiler, Bucket Seats, Sunroof. Oh ya, and a 3 year warranty. Which is nice. COnsidering the loan is four years, so even if the thing falls apart after 3 years (which it won't), I'll only have one more year to actually pay for the car before I can ditch it and get a Scion.

Here is what she looks like.




Nice eh?

I would like to tint the windows and throw on new rims in the near future. I might also get eurolights too, for the hell of it.

But as this car will most likely break me, I may have to wait.

Anyway, this is the largest purchase I've ever made, and Its well worth it. The Protege (hatchback) has always been my #1 for cheaper cars (read: cars I can moderately afford but most likely can't). So, getting a sedan version (which stood around #4 or #5 of my most favorite affordable cars) is pretty fucking awesome.

On a related note: I may be doing a little highway driving this weekend to go to a certain psychedelic ho-down out in the middle of nowhere. So, I'll be putting this baby to the test.

On another related note: The place where we got the car is tres awesome. If anyone is looking for a car of the Mazda persuasion I will gladly recommend the dealership and salesperson.

CLICKITY-CLOW!

Yay! New studio for me! Well, not really. I'm re-arranging it (again). So, it'll feel new!

I'm a huge fan of change and after a while I get bored. That, and my current setup pisses off the neighbors too much, and the vibe just isn't there! I dunno why, but I can't be as creative as I want in there. I've gotten as far as dismantling everything, and now its time to put it all back together. But where? I've contemplated moving it to the master bedroom, switching myself and Amy to the bedroom its in now. We'd only lose one foot of length in the room, and Amy would still get an entire closet for her clothes. So, basically no loss... other than the entire weekend to move everything! I've also thought about moving it to the walk-in closet, and just have the excess stuff trail out. The sound in there is awesome, and with the soundproofing its only better. But, that basically defies the entire reason for the studio move: to un-piss off the neighbor, with whom I'd be moving the studio even closer to... other side of the wall close.

Problem is, if I move to the master bedroom, there would be too much room (too much reverb) and I'd be potentially pissing off a new neighboor (or two if the sound leaks to the people below me).

I'm stuck. Fuck I wish I had a house, with a bass-ment, or at least a room that I could modify. I've thought about actually building a temporary insulated wall (or box) in our place, but considering we plan to leave at the end of our lease, it seems rather pointless building something that would have to be torn down in less than a year.

Ah well, at least I almost have Bob Marley's entire discography!
