trying to keep this thing alive! Dec. 17th, 2008 @ 07:28 am
Well, it's almost Christmas time and the weather certainly looks the part! We had a Christmas party on the weekend and, shock of shockers, I wore a suit! And it wasn't a wedding!! Don't get to used to it though, even though I was surely a stunning specimen in my handsomely tailored attire, it's not quite my thing. Besides, I still spilled a little gravy on my shirt then ended up running home in the sloppy snow, to it's not like I classed up my act to fit the garb ;)

it's all about the t-shirts, baby Jul. 24th, 2007 @ 05:34 pm
Well hidey ho! As the latest chapter in my life unfolds, I felt I should divulge a little of the plan for the immediate future. As some of you know, I'm going to start making T-shirts. And they will be the greatest T-shirts this world has ever known!!!!! Mwa hahahaha. OK, maybe that's a bit much, but they'll still be frickin' awesome with frickin' laser beams, baby. I'm in the very last stages of finalizing the purchase of an obscenely expensive printer for the task. Once that's done, I should be up and running within a couple of weeks (fingers crossed). For now I'll be doing runs for businesses and events (paintball and boat racing are already lined up), then in the fall I'll be going to universities and colleges for a few days at a time to setup a booth and sell some of the more wacky and offensive products of my imagination. Hopefully, if all goes well, I'll have a website up by mid-winter, early spring at the latest. From there, who knows!?

In addition to the excitement of the garment printing industry, I'll be trying to land some supply teaching work in the Kingston and/or Cobourg area and I'll be taking some interest courses at Queen's (Latin American and Caribbean Philosophy; and Culture, Identity, and Self for those who are interested. I really wanted to take African Philosophy but it's not offered this term. We'll see in the spring). As I'll be going to school there, I'll be moving to the K-town to setup shop. I've never lived there before, but during my brief visits I've seen what I liked. If anyone has any tips or information about the town of Kings, let me know. And of course, come visit me!!! :D

rumours of my demise are greatly exaggerated Jul. 11th, 2007 @ 11:39 pm
I'm just writing quickly to make sure my account doesn't get deleted :)

Despite my lack of doing anything with this for the past year or so, I really do plan (hope?) to make use of it again!

it's been a while.... Apr. 17th, 2007 @ 04:25 am
So I'm very lazy with this thing. Like a philanderer, I have dabbled in MySpace (hate it), Facebook (actually rather like it, made contact with so many old friends), and abstained from the online communities for a while. But, like the proverbial prodigal son, I have returned to my roots one more time to take this for a spin. I'm actually grateful that LiveJournal hasn't deleted my account. I feared that might have happened given my prolonged and lengthy absence. But here I am now, for how long? Who knows. But I'm going to try to slap some thoughts together once in a while to put up on this board. In the meantime, here are my favourite Moxy Fruvous lyrics:

"History tends to agree,
That I would fight you for me,
And us would fight them for we."

Sad but true, that is what history tends to say. When it comes down to you or me, us or them, we will fight they, and they will fight we. I will fight you and you will fight me.

» myspace cryspace
I recently, strugglingly, begrudgingly signed myself up for a myspace account. Apparently they're all the rage these days. Honestly, what a confusing, ugly, hard to manage, poorly programmed, terribly designed piece of shizzat. I could vent for hours about how crappy myspace is. Why the hell is it so popular? The *best* you can hope to do is create an ugly ass page where the HTML almost functions smoothly. Half the time it's down and even when it's up, it's difficult to navigate and doesn't have even simple features like the ability to respond to comments from the comments page. You have to go to each and every person's page who posted a comment! How useless.

I haven't posted here in a long time, primarily because...does anyone still read this? I know you'll check it ardently, but my little group of friends has been reduced to 50% of its original strength of...6 :(

Alas, is myspace and its ilk really the wave of the future for the internet? If so, it does not bode well for my sanity.

G'day readers, if there are in fact any of you left out there....

I'm currently back in Korea!

That is all for now. :)
» fruit dystopia?
Fruitopia is made with "Real Fruit Juice", yet it contains no vitamin C. What a curious situation, don't you think?

» canada!
For those of you following my adventures through my increasingly sporadic posts on here, I am back in Canada! I've been home for about 3 weeks now and it's great! This Wednesday I'm heading to Oklahoma for a roadtrip-slash-Korean-reunion. I'm looking forward to it, although I am NOT looking forward to the 40+ degree daytime highs before humidity.

I'll update something more substantial later if I get around to it ;)
» for your listening pleasure
I was taking a look through my CD folder and I got thinking about music in general. So here, for no reason other than I decided to type up a mini list, is a list of 10 [Edit: only 7, I got hungry and lazy, maybe I'll finish it later] albums I think you should listen to! (and I'm sure you've already listened to most if not all of them because they're not exactly rare)

In no particular order:

The Tragically Hip Fully Completely This is my clear favourite Hip album.
Pick-a-song: Fully Completely.
ick-a-line: "A late breaking story on the CBC...." Can't get much more Canadian than that.

Hayden everything i long for Cuz it's Hayden at his poetic best and back when he would tear his throat up scream-singing.
Pick-a-song: When This Is Over.
Pick-a-line: "I hate bunkbeds."

Pearl Jam No Code This album took a long time to grow on me, I think because it seemed such a departure for Pearl Jam. Now I love it, it's both more mellow and more varied than any of their albums before (or since as far as I can tell).
Pick-a-song: Off He Goes.
"when he was six he believed that the moon overhead followed him,
by nine he had deciphered the illusion, trading magic for fact,
no tradebacks..."

Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral My favourite NIN album, I think because it tells a complete story of, you guessed it, a seriously downward spiral. But it has a little checkmark of a happy ending, a little glint of hope at the bottom of the well.
Pick-a-song: The Becoming
Pick-a-line: "If I could start again, a million miles away, I would keep myself, I would find a way."

A Perfect Circle eMOTIVe A collection of covers with a few originals and remixes, brilliantly done and all with a pretty strong and obvious anti-war message. And if you ever had any doubt about Maynard's ability to harmonize, listen to The Fiddle and the Drum, it gives me goosebumps.
Pick-a-song: Imagine. They made John Lennon scary.
Pick-a-line: "Oh what time is this, to trade the handshake for the fist?"

gandharvas Kicking in the Water A classic case of 'selling out'. The first two albums were brilliant (this is the second), the third was much more polished, pop, and pompous. Thus ending their coolness and, for all intents and purposes, their career.
Pick-a-song: Hollow You Out
Pick-a-line: "I'm a mute with broken fingers, swollen lips, and faith in telepathy."

Genesis Genesis Phil Collins is fantastic when he's dark and moody, otherwise he's a Disney shill. I don't like lovey-dovey Phil Collins, but I like dark, brooding and funny Phil Collins :)
Pick-a-song: Mama
Pick-a-line: "It's no fun being an illegal alien."
