Lonely and dreaming of the West Coast...

Maybe I'm going through a phase.

I'm hearing all these old songs which I really liked at the time, but sort of stopped listening to.

Now upon hearing them again, I'm just playing them on repeat as if they're the greatest songs ever.

Case in point:

Everclear - Santa Monica
Third Eye Blind - Semi Charmed Life
Motor Ace - Carry On

Fuck yes! That's the stuff right there.

Don't buy razors in the midnight lull

Some things are just funny.

Like how I had an idea to blog, but as soon as this page loaded, I totally forgot what the hell it was!

So where does that leave us? In a position where I need to wash the dishes and sleep pretty damn soon.

Decided to start exercise regime again, and BOY am I out of shape. After like 3-4 pushups I just could not go any further, I had to keep stopping and starting and damn, it was brutal to know that just a few years ago I was fit.

I think the mid uni me could kick the shit out of me now, and that's really quite scary!

The past, as much as we try to elude us, it just keeps searching and finds us.

I keep looking up people I used to know in Google and the results are sometimes shocking and sometimes hilarious.

Anyway, time for dishes. Have a nice day folks!

The Crash Of Emotional Waves

Alright, get a hold of yourself!

Hahah - those who got the reference should call me, as we should be friends!

Ahh Vanilla Coke, haven't had that in a while, oh how I have missed my dark mistress. So smooth, with a little twist. Pure brilliance.

Paid a visit to the DFO (direct factory outlet) with a friend today. Oh my god. I have never seen so many fat girls in tight outfits before. It's where the poor uglies go to be seen and to attempt to look trendy. No wonder it's on the outskirts of town! I was actually walking around looking disgusted! Buttt in terms of items, it's actually not bad, so hats off to them.

I saw perhaps one of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen in my life today. I was getting my hair cut when she was working in the retail area (adjacent to the place where I get my hair cut), and goddamn, I actually gasped! I usually am pretty unmoved even by the very attractive, but this woman was something else.

Anyway. What else is new in thought town? I don't know, I thought I had something to say, but I guess not! I think life takes a turn for the weird starting from tomorrow/today, so let's see how that works out.

Got my hands on the acoustic, and ahhh, so sweet. Despite the neck feeling like a bloody toy, the sound is just spectacular.

King Crimson's Sleepless wafts over my speakers. Stunning.

Till I have something non-lacklustre to say! Have a nice day folks.

A broken watch is right twice a day..

One of the best lines I've ever heard.

Thought I'd share that with you, cause I'd never heard it before!

Till next time.

I'm treading just a little bit

I hate it when things don't pan out like they should. Cause I thought it was better that way. Now I am utterly screwed. When things finally net out, it's going to be interesting what the result is.

Moot point. I'm going to die without doing pretty much most of the stuff I wanted to do. Boohoo! Haha.

Oh I knew this day was fucked when I poured juice on to my cereal. Go figure.

See you at the crossroads...

I think for a little while at least, I'll try to blog more often, but with sparse comments. e.g.

There's a dude at work who looks like Brandon Boyd from Incubus (even down to the tribal earring). Whenever I see him I feel like breaking out into "Drive".

Haha, I love it!

I'm in dire need of one. Not feeling so well!

Routine interruptions and my weekend goes out the window. I spent most of today asleep in bed. Luckily I've gotten most of my chores done.

I also watched Gladiator, which is a pretty good romp as always.

I hope I can get my stuff out of the way tomorrow, or things won't be looking good for the week ahead, which may be quite large. But more on that some other time.

I can't remember what the catalyst for the thought was, but I remember thinking something as a response. Wait a minute, that makes no sense! I came up with the answer and now I can't remember the question (or the original thought or reference). So you will have to try and understand as best you can.

So what if humanity is not destined to survive? Maybe we were meant to only be here for a finite point in time. What if God just wanted to see how much we could accomplish? That it's all just a test? And here we are, at a stalling point. We advanced so much, and kinda just fell flat. Artificiality (if that is even a word), is taking over. Maybe time is running out, and it all just sort of fizzled. Like a cheap firework.

I need to start writing songs again. So many MUSICAL ideas, but nothing in the way of lyrics. Before I forget themes, I better get started on them.

I also better get some practice in before I play tonight and HOPEFULLY get up early. Too late. Weekends not long enough. Have a nice day folks!

Making up for lost time

Stupid daylight savings!!!! I had a pretty big task that I needed to get done today. So I got up at 2 thinking I was fine and ready for a nice day ahead. But, crapola, I hadn't changed my mobile clock, and it was really 3pm!! Crapzorz! So I had to get stuff ready in a hurry, and I haven't really even started my task yet!

Shocking. Lost hour, lost time. I need it back!! I can just tell it's going to be another late night!! Damn it. Outlaw daylight savings I say!!!

So tonight's agenda? There Will Be Blood. M2TW, and dinnre somewhere in there. Hopefully not as late as last well as the task I need to get done, damn it! I'll get to it in a bit though.

So, without even so much of a whimper, it seems we've passed 4 years on this blog!! I had totally forgotten, I am incredibly sorry! But it's been a good 4 years. Even if the posts have started become sparse and not so packed with content (from me anyway), we will do our best to keep this going!

Anyway, up up and away. Have a nice day folks!

Is this a sign of things to come, or just a wooden spoon?

I won't even bother apologising anymore, cause this is how my life is and I'm sure the other can attest to that.

I'm glad the other is having a grand time with his new job. He's told me that he's enjoying it, and that he will blog once he has time (and after he is finished with his thesis writing)!

So what's happening in other developments? Not a lot really. So here I am, making pasta and blogging at 12:37am, how exciting??! Hahah, like being back at uni...well not really, since I used to eat dinner at like 6pm everyday!

My life is pretty regimented, and I know that may sound boring, but that's how I like it. Routine makes sure that I'm on top of things and that there are no insane surprises around the corner.

But this weekend I have been mixing it up, and it is a nice welcome change. Been getting into the guitary side of things, been getting back into my King Crimson, oooh yeah, so good!

But the constant reminder is there, 11:11! I see it all the time!! I don't know why, it's not like I'm a clock watcher, but when I'm at work, I look at the bottom right hand corner, and there it is, 11:11, staring me back in the face! I wonder what it means? The other has started something I tell you!

I like my (home cooked) pasta a certain way! 3 hits of salt while water is boiling. Then once the pasta is cooked, chuck it in a bowl, then some grated cheese, then pasta sauce and then pepper, it's the tops!

I've been playing Diablo (what a blast from the past)! This was one of the first games I played in High School, and it was a lovely challenge. I remember playing it over Modem and the multiplayer was good fun. But playing it now, it's NOWHERE near as fun. Maybe I got too good. Diablo went down in under 20 hits, and it was nowhere near the same amount of satisfaction that I remembered last time. I guess my guy was just too far advanced. But it was some decent nostalgia while it lasted.

I have Diablo 2, so I better get into that soon. But I've also been enjoying Battlefield Vietnam! Such a crafty lil game. Nowhere near as team based as BF2, but still a rip roaring good time. But goddamn, I better get back into M2TW! My poor egyptians have just been idling for yonks!! I can't play my expansion before I've finished that game (for the 2nd time, you'll note that I've already done it with England). What will I do if I haven't completed them before Empire Total War comes out?! I don't know how I'll like it, I'm not too familiar with colonial battle strategies, so it's going to be entirely new to me. And Grand Theft Auto 4 on PC soon, I can't wait!! Ahh too much stuff! No time!

I don't know if I've mentioned, but my friend at work gave me more than 1tb of tv shows and movies! It's seriously nuts. Like ALL the shows I've missed over the years, as well as movies, it's just friggin' spectacular. I've calculated that with my work schedule, it would take me 3 years to even get through 10% of what he's given me, which is quite scary!

Tonight I'll hit up first few eps of Secret Diary of a callgirl (I didn't watch first 2 eps), and watch the Hayley Westenra live in New Zealand performance! I've done 17 gig this month! I'm so close to my limit!! But soon I shall be back to zero, and I can download like nuts again. Yee-haw!

Anyway, I best be off! Have a good day folks!
