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.

Quick Karma, The Rapture, and You (Me)

Quick Karma, The Rapture, and You (Me)

You: A person in need of some extra Karma on a rapidly approaching day of rapture. Me: A person in need of cold hard cash... I think this whole rapture thing is going to work out for everybody.

Dream Analytics

So… anyone wanna take a crack at what THIS dream meant? I dreamt I was getting married to an indian girl (dots not feathers). We were meeting up in the parking lot to a ‘public’ building. Like a rec center or school or something. I was running late of course, and someone was driving me...

Don’t cry for me pasadena

So here’s the deal. I’m probably not going to get annhiliated by Hurricane Ike, and while the chances of it happening are greater than the Haldron Collider thingies getting me pregnant, I suppose that’s still possible. So I was thinking about it, and I think I might be ok with getting killed in the hurricane,...

Sweaty Fat Guy No More

More coming soon, I promise. One of the big observations I had in Houston, it’s about as hot/muggy as I expected it to be. Having spent a summer climbing roofs with my dad in Missouri this isn’t hugely different. As such though I came to a realization about something amazingly awesome about the sticky Texas...

China’s Going to Kick My Ass

It’s probably nothing, but I noticed today while we’re racking up medals in running and sailing and swimming and biking… China is racking up medals in Judo, Fencing, Kicking Guys In the Balls, Shooting (they named the sport shooting? Fuck yeah), Wrestling, Archery, Weightlifting Like… dude… And then of course they won Trampolinging, Table Tennis,...

Something I wrote and Actually Like

You can’t see my sudden smirk as a lifetimes mischief seeps back into me If I was Puck I’d lead you astray And seduce you in moonlit woods but I am not Puck, and my forests are long since farmed for lumber. And seduction has given way to alcoholic ramblings But that doesn’t stop me...

Loooove

There are very few moments in my life that I’ve been so overwhelmed by happyness and love that I don’t know what to do. More recently than in times past, but tonight was one of those times. Nate’s wedding was awesome. Cody’s wedding was perfect. Watching the first dance was heartwrenching. Everything about it hit...

I almost die a lot

They had a marathon on TV a few years back of “The Scariest Moments in Movies” and I remember one of the top things was this guy taking a pair of scissors, and opening his mouth and ramming his head down on them. I totally almost did that accidentally last night. Well no. I did...

Wherein: I see a naughty puppet show

So over the weekend I went into LA, and while there I saw a naughty puppet show. Er that is to say I saw a really cool show put on by a group called The Rogue Artists Ensemble. It was great. It’s based on a Neil Gaiman book called “The Tragic Comedy or Comic Tragedy...

I am E.E. Cummings’ Bitch

31 if there are any heavens my mother will(all by herself)have one. It will not be a pansy heaven nor a fragile heaven of lilies-of-the-valley but it will be a heaven of blackred roses my father will be(deep like a rose tall like a rose) standing near my (swaying over her silent) with eyes which...

May you live in interesting times

So theoretically the Chinese have this curse that roughly translates to “May you live in interesting times”. I checked the wiki on it cause the saying was stuck in my head, and it says it might be based on the proverb ‘It’s better to be a dog in peaceful times than a man in chaotic...

Words of Power: or Nathan goes Mildly Insane

So I had a dream last night, but it wasn’t a normal dream. In this dream there was a child in the house I was in. I don’t know if it was my kid or a sibling or what, but the child was possessed by Satan and I found an old book that had a...
