Tentacles of the Technoctopus

Wherein I write about whatever's on my mind in the hopes that I find a little bit of common ground with the other spacemen hurtling around this damn place.

Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

The remake follows more closely the original Japanese Manga, which as it turns out is considerably darker, and actually has an ending, as opposed to the original which somehow ends in alternate realities and a kid flying around on a dragon while doing dog-fighting with Nazi's in biplanes or something.

10 out of 10 minutes wasted. Check it out, worth the time if you got the sound.

You should probably just trust me on this one and buy this book for someone for Christmas. They'll think you're a total badass.

... if anything the internet is one of the strongest strongholds of racism in the universe. I've heard more racial slurs hurled at me within 5 minutes of signing into Call of Duty that I have in my entire life walking around in meatspace.

Music's power to describe, compel, renew... It's all a distant second to the offers you can't refuse. Anyone remember when we used to believe, that music was a sacred place and not some fucking bank machine? Not something you just bought and sold? How could we have been so naive?

Hurricane Ike Bachelor Mash

So I’ve been doing a lot more cooking for myself, and observing Aurora cook (she’s an awesome cook) and I’ve come to the realization that “holy shit, people in Texas like spicy food”. More on that later. Tonight however I’m back at home with power, and everyone else is out elsewhere (with power) so I...

Wherein: I almost kill myself with booze

The LJ Prompt for today was interesting. Hemmingway wrote a 6 word story “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Dayv’s was solid too “The unicorn wandered Los Angeles, riderless.” Mine is on topic for the story I’m about to tell, and seems more like an noir novel than anything else “A Mercy Killing never needed...

A long post about a dude’s wang

So I got done reading the Club Dumas recently. I really liked it, it’s the book that The Ninth Gate was based on. I can’t decide if people should read the book or see the movie first. I think maybe the book. They’re different enough that it’s not the same story, though in some parts...

A great Day

After dropping Amanda off at the airport today I decided to drop by Kevin’s work and catch up with him and I’m glad I did. We hung out briefly at his work before heading over to his parents house where we had magic little gems rained down upon us. Several of them don’t really bear...

Searching for a Former Clarity

I really like Against Me! They’re a punk band that Cody and Joe turned me on to. They are the kind of punk I tend to like, and they’re pretty solid. Some of their newer stuff is a bit more mainstream and not really quite there, and I have no clue what album the song...

Dinner

Dinner Tonight Courtesy of Trader Joes: I just had an amazing dinner. I couldn’t tell you the nutritional value of it or how many calories it was, nor do I care. The flavor content was mindgobbling (Thanks Christian). So what did I have? Well it was a pretty simple fair. When I was at TJoes...
