Last post...for the year!

Had you going for a minute there didn't I?

I'd never leave this blog, I love it too much.

So before 2012 hits here, I thought I should say happy new year and enjoy yourself.

Going from the size of overall readership, I think we have a good sample size in terms of the general population. Chances are, some of you reading this won't make it past next year. Others will have something horrible happen to them. Others will do something horrible to another person. So think, what sort of year will the next one be for you? Haha, let's just ignore the Mayan calendar for a second (note: I am still yet to see the film 2012), and just imagine that life goes on for a bit. But even then, what if you are one of those who die in the next year? How are you going to live your life? Because you never know, it could be you...

As noted in my previous post, the readership here is quite diverse, with the majority of readers coming from the US, and then Australia. I thought that was an interesting breakdown, but even more exciting were the referring keywords - being "Dana Kronenthal" and "Karen Tso boyfriend". Hahaha! I'm quite sure those are some worthy keywords!

What's even more crazy is that the majority of users access this site via Internet Explorer. What the hell?! The world has moved on! Stop living in the 90's! We've moved past Explorer. You don't need to use Chrome, but there are other things out there! Mozilla Firefox, Opera! Hell, even safari! But explorer?! Insane! The world has moved on to bigger, better (and faster) things! But I have to admit, I'll always hold a soft spot for Netscape Navigator. The last few builds of that were definitely way better than anything IE ever had.

Anyway, thought you'd enjoy those snippets of trivia! For now, I'm off to enjoy a quiet night in. Best wishes to the other, who will be joining me from 3 January onwards!

Some interesting posts due in the future. Joaquin out.

A year to contemplate?

2011 hasn't been a great year for most people I know. I wonder why that is? Well here's hoping that 2012 is better around the dial for everyone.

What's married life like? I think it's a lot like single life, except that now there's another person in it! It may sound simple, but it is in actual fact very complicated. They say the first year is the hardest, and I'm inclined to agree. But if things don't get harder then this, then I say we have it relatively easy!

I've been looking at the new tabs in the blogger interface, and the stats tab is absolutely fantastic. We've got quite a diverse range of readership here, and it's all pretty much down to the other's idea (all those years ago now...) to start up a blog randomly, and since then all his design overhauls have resulted in the brilliance that is the current page.

Some more points to come later on. But for now I think it's movie time!

Joaquin out.

In Hindsight...

It probably wasn't such a good idea to jokingly accuse that well loved actress of being racist on twitter. But at least we've both gotten over it.

After that debacle, I am looking forward to seeing the year out.

I don't know about the rest of you, but 2011 has just not been a good year. Would the other agree with that assessment?

In other news, the other is coming back to town to live and work in 2k12! I'm looking forward to catching up again and jamming like the good ol' days.

What I'm really amazed by is the sheer stillness of this day.

Nothing is moving, I'm not hearing anything.

Am I moving faster than light?

This has been an utterly fail year for the blog, and this time I'm actually quite sorry.

Sorry for me rather than you. I've had a lot to say, but I guess I've been internalising everything and have not made the time to blog. Not even to write shorthand notes so that I can blog about it later. I guess that's the problem with the late 20's - everything you think seems to not be important enough.

All we have to rely on are facts. You have a certain number of them and fill in everything in between with assumptions. And that's where we are lost.

Telling a ratpack full of lies.

I'm all jealous and depressed!

Anyway, that's it for today.

Here's hoping for another entry before the end of the year.

Joaquin out.

Just resting on the ground...

fantasising about what my rotting corpse will look like.

I'm starting to lose the plot.

That assumes I had a grip on it in the first place.

It sticks around with you until the day you die

It is times like this that I am reminded of Oasis' Where Did It All Go Wrong.

Classic song.

There Is A Suicide Note In My Workbook

Don't ask me how it got there!

I'm being kept up at night with visions of my lonely, unspectacular death. Interesting, don't you think?

Oh well, in a way I guess we are all dying. What the hell is going on? Just stop! What the hell happened? I don't even know anymore.

This is my last refuge. Facebook and twitter have been overrun with friends and people I know.

I belong here. Where it began. Where it will end.

Gears turning. Tiny gears, always turning.

You start to think really strange thoughts at a time like this.

Not so much concerned with the bigger picture per se, but more so practicalities of what there is to do, and hope everyone else can have it all together.

There's a lot to take care of. I've accumulated a lot of stuff! I should get rid of most of it, it's a shame we live such consumer based lives.

It's so cold today, which is a big turn from yesterday, which was quite warm. Welcome to this town!

Who would have guessed that words uttered so nonchalantly from someone elses mouth would be so profound to me? Maybe it was calculated, the way it was delivered.

But it looks like it's sealed my fate, justification for all I was.

Talking about myself in the past tense? Bad grammar, Joaquin!

Enough for now. Take care of yourselves, Joaquin out.

A lot to say...

...but not right now.

Life at the dashboard

You can't live your life by experiencing it through the dashboard.

That being said, the new interface for blogger+ on iPhone is pretty damn sweet!

Just wasting time at the airport since my flight is delayed. I'll probably miss my meeting and end up wasting money. At least it's not my money, it's yours!

Ok let's review some posts. More to come later.

June already??

Oh my god!! Half the year gone by and I have had jack all to say! How pathetic. Well that's not the case. I've always had something to say. The problem these days is finding the time to explore my thoughts and to voice them on here.

The other introduced me to twitter, which I use semi regularly. I think the limit to 140 characters is what makes it so compelling and useful. Whereas here there are no constraints, there I can be as succinct and as mundane as I want to be with no worries. I wonder why that is?

This is going to be the worst year for the blog, and for that I am sorry. More for myself than for all of you.

Until next time, Joaquin out.

Hiding out

This is definitely going to be the worst year of posts for this blog! How unfortunate. Even if I got my act together and posted more regularly it would be a miracle to get this year back on track.

Not just that, you all deserve a full catch up on all that has transpired.

But that's all for later! My phone battery is low and I have a long drive ahead and I need my music!

Take care, Joaquin out.

Are you experienced?

I don't think so, because I don't know a damn thing.

Life has changed, oh it most certainly has changed. The other has moved cities to take up another job - hopefully more fulfilling than his last. I got married somewhere in there too.

What else? Umm promotions overseas travel and the standard monotony of life.

You know sometimes it doesn't turn out the way you think it will.

I must sing the praises of blogger+ because it allows me to blog from my iPhone. I don't get much computer time anymore. In fact I don't have time for anything anymore. Where did everything go? The other just started this blog the other day basically. We were just in uni. Now here we are.

Regrets regrets regrets. Oh well I guess all that is left is to run out the clock and await the inevitable now.

Joaquin out, take care of yourselves.

I'm sorry

I don't know where my life went. And I guess it shows in this blog. God help me.

You Know

Sometimes things don't turn out as you plan. The best you can do is try not to let it paralyse you. I shall try to heed my own words.

Joaquin out.

Where ever I shall go

Blogging on the iPhone is quite handy. I am hoping to get a bit more involved in shorter blogging now, no matter where I am. There is a myriad of things to report on.

I'm posting from work, sneaky!

To love

Is a challenge. Full update when I get the chance.

Let's rock and or roll

Yeah let's see how we go!

I will learn to blog again!

Yes, it has been too long. A massive gap in there somewhere for which I apologise.

A lot has happened.

Will get to it in time.

Ummm, at least I beat the record I was going for last year? Too bad it wasn't triple digits!
