I got a few more things accomplished this weekend. Not as much as I should have, but it was a start. I got most of the knickknacks on the shelves and organized a few things. I cooked my lunch for the next few weeks, and it turned out really good. I did Thai again, nice and spicy, but still not the same as a restaurant. I think it is because I am mixing it with the rice at the end and that is why it isn’t as liquidly as when they serve it to you. I did use a lot more of the curry paste as I normally do, and it is more flavorful, so I haven’t been using as much as I should have been using.

I am starting to see a lot more hits on http://projectpostcard.org. No one has commented or anything like that yet, which I am ok with, but the increase in traffic is good. One of my friends in Florida sent me seven postcards, so that helps the site as well. She sent in some cool postcards with stuff written in the back. Hopefully there is a trend in more submissions. I want some from strangers. That would be really cool.

I don’t know if very many people know this or not, but when I was 20 I did some time in the Navy. I was going to be a cook, work on aircraft carriers, use that experience and work on cruise ships. I made it through boot camp but I couldn’t do the required physical fitness requirements. So after going through boot camp graduation I spent an additional three weeks there doing physical fitness stuff to try to pass the requirements. I was able to do the sit ups and pushups required however running I was not able to run fast enough for them. I blame my knees and ankles for not being able to run fast enough. My ligaments were shot even though their doctors couldn’t find anything wrong. Now I do need to add that is when they diagnosed my reflux so I was going to be out on a medical anyway (Wish I had that medical discharge). Anyway, I digress. So the story was, I went to boot camp and I got a general discharge, which wasn’t a dishonorable but it also wasn’t a good discharge either. The separation was like ok you were here, but you weren’t here, if you want to come back you need special permission and also good luck working for the government and any contractors of the government. Anyway I thought to myself “who would want to work for the government anyway. Really?” So flash forward 18 years and here I am, a contractor for the government. I don’t know if it is Murphy being a nasty bitch or what, however it seems like this kind of stuff happens to me a lot. Another example of this is when I lived in Florida and first moved there I saw the shitty Bay Pointe apartments and thought to myself who the fuck would want to live in those shitty apartments??? A couple of months later I was there and I stayed there for almost 9 years. Fuck!!! Anyway. That seems to be my life. I end up being in a place or situation that I think people in their right mind wouldn’t be in.

I know it has been a long time. I haven’t been much in the mood or too busy lately. Let me see if I can remember it all…

On the 6th I went and saw Blownhard, My Life with The Thrill Kill Kult, and Lords of Acid. It was a great show. First time I saw LOA, second time for TKK. They were a lot better this time than last, well partially because they played mostly their classic better stuff before they got all poppy and dancy. This was the first I have heard of Blownhard, and they were pretty good. I took pictures but they are really shitty, so I am not going to bother sharing them with you.

I am really liking my new Slide. It is a cool phone, nice keyboard and is easy to use. The keyboard is taking a bit to get used to because it isn’t a true qwerty keyboard. They made some of the keys different to make it easier to use the . and the @ for email. It does make it easier, when I remember I don’t have to hit the ftn key first. (that is how it was on the sidekicks and the blackberries I had.) There is an appication to update my blog as well. Still have yet to try it. There is a function to add media as well so I am going to try a voice update.

I have been trying to save up for a new file server but have been failing on that one. My main battery back up died on me a month ago and I had to buy a new one. I found a server grade back up real cheep (comparably) so I bought two, the other one for the server. So that is one less thing I will need to buy in the future however it is also money that I could have used for the unit and drives so it set me back. I also did buy a 2 terabyte drive and a cheep usb to ethernet adaptor so I did buy myself a bit of time since the current server is on it’s last leg. I do have a few things I need to put up on ebay. I have been lazy and not put them up there. I should probably do that tomorrow. Got to work on cleaning too. Hot water heater is gone and need to get the apt in respectable condition to allow maintenance in.

Not much else is going on. I am sure I will remember something as soon as I post this. That is usually how it goes. If I do I will test out the voice post thing.

Oh I have been really digging this song lately. Soo cool!

Hey Mother
You’ve got to help me
Reach for heaven
This is hell
I’m searching
Looking for answers
Wish me well
Wish me well

Hey Father
I came here naked
Never asking to be born
Hey father
Why did you bother?
Is this all there is
Nothing more

In this house of pain
I’ve got to find some other way
Before I go insane
I want to go
Back to zero

Won’t listen to politicians
My conditions
Stay the same
Bleak wastelands
Love rots in your hands
Still we struggle on
In this savage game

In this house of pain
I’ve got to find some other way
Before I go insane
Thrust the cage
?
?

Hey mother
You’ve got to help me
Break the chains
Let me start again
?
Too much confusion
I’ve just got to get back
To where i’ve been

In this house of pain
I’ve got to find some other way
Before I go insane
Break the chains
Get away
In this house of pain
I’ve got to find
Some other way
Before I go insane
I’ve got to know
Let me go
Back to zero
Let me go
Back to zero
I want to go
Back to zero

OK so I have spent the last couple of weekends cleaning and rearranging my apartment. It feels like there is hardly anything done, but yet a lot has been done. it is amazing how much shit one can gather in 7 years. I started out in Florida with a chair and an air mattress in an empty apartment and now i have it so full I am in need of some place bigger. I think i am going to finally move into a house in June. hopefully. Hopefully Hopefully….

I have been getting into Top Chef. Been digging it lately, watching it with Carol. i hope Carla (Roger) wins.

Anyway.

Buckethead – Coma (ft. Azam Ali and Serj Tankian)

He stays still
He stays here
Unholy, unholy
He stays still
Stay unto me
Makes me feel unholy

Ya laï, ya laï…

Nothing
(Nothing)
Now that I have nothing
(Now that I have nothing)
I resolve to be nothing
(I resolve to be nothing)
Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain
(Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain)
I resolve to be nothing (X2)

Nothing
(Nothing)
Nothing
(Nothing)

He stays still
Stay unto me
Makes me feel unholy
Makes me feel unholy

We stay
No cause, stay…

So I didn’t get the loan. They wanted collateral and I don’t have any so that went to shit.

I wasn’t expecting it anyway, but it would have been nice to have.

I have been listening to Govinda at work the last few days. I know I have talked about them before, but dammit I love it! Great stuff! Go here and listen to Charming the Serpent! It is one of my favorites!

Karla hasn’t mailed me again today. I am going to let her sit and sulk until she decides to write me back. Whenever that is going to be.

This entry sucks. I know it does. Tell me it sucks!

I’m going straight to Heaven

Everybody’s dying for the chance to see
How being in my thoughts you can all be me
But the potable question seems to be
Why would the world want to live with me?
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
I’m going straight to heaven.

Top floor, please, elevator man
Get me upstairs as fast as you can
Got a dinner appointment at a dead end suite
For a one way ticket up to Easy Street
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
I’m going straight to heaven.

Somebody is listening in on all my dreams
Quoting my thoughts on an evening screen
Keeping me healthy and safe and clean
Getting me ready for a change of scene
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
I’m going straight to heaven.

The world is spinning on a whole lot of pot
And the tourist chumps adored the high
On a ten mile high, I’m obscene
I’m a man with the hope; a man with the key.
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
I’m going straight to heaven.

I’m tired of the face of reality
Just give me a glimpse of what will be
Salvation’s easy as one, two, three
But nothing is true until it’s proven to me
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
Everybody shut up and leave me alone
I’m going straight to heaven.

Sample: “Here we go”
Sample: “I’m Going Straight To Heaven”

sample: “get busy ya’ll”
sample: american indian chant

sample: elvis, “shake, baby shake”

My weekend went by pretty darned fast.

On Thursday I spent all day looking for a single station cordless Vonage phone. The only ones I found was out of stock for $60, or was $100 at Best Buy. I ended up buying one for $80 that had three stations on it, it had an $80 mail in rebate as well, but the rebate won’t happen until after two months of service with Vonage. I spent about 5 hours looking in multiple places and finally gave up and bought that one. I also went grocery shopping as well and bought some other odds and ends while I was out. I got home, plugged up the system, went online and within 5 minutes I had dialtone. No muss no fuss, no wonder so many people hate having to wait several days for Bright House. Anyway, I let the batteries charge for several hours and then I packed it up to ship it out the next day. It left Miami this morning so I am sure it is already in Mexico by now. If it goes through customs quickly she should get it by Wed. That is going to make life so much easier and cheaper. We can talk all we want and not worry about running up the bill.

I got Govinda’s Sound Sutras in the mail on Thursday as well. It is really good. I love it! If you haven’t ever heard of Govinda I highly recommend you check them out. They are pretty good. Maybe I will post a song later on.

Last night I had a dream about joining the Navy or the Air Force, I don’t remember which one, but I think it was the Air Force. I was in the recruiters office and he had the paperwork ready for me to fill out and I mentioned my stint with the Navy and how I couldn’t run fast enough for them and about my knees and stuff. I remember sitting there looking at the paperwork realising that and remembering the experience before and sitting there wondering if this is something that I really wanted to do.

I spent some time cleaning this weekend too, I filled four trash bags full of trash. The other day (Wed I think) I realised that I have a dishwasher that is completely empty that I don’t use. I have issues with storage and I decided to move my plates down there and open up more space in doing so. I wish I had thought about that prior to.
