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.

Damn this movie was bad.

Train writing

I found some writing from my train trip from Los Angeles to Houston. Some of it is decidedly mediocre but one of the things I really liked. I still remember very vividly the scene I described.   I think this is as close as I’ll ever feel to hurtling through space. I sit and by...

I got them Sunday Morning Hobo Blues

So I had a really weird weekend. On Friday night I got a late ride out to the Orange Line station, then cruised it in to hang out with Manu for the night. It was a good night, I got to check out the Roberto Alomar show and catch up with Todd, Gian, Scott, Will...

The Bro Code

So, I was talking to Davy today and I realized… the problem with the Bro Code is whenever someone fucks up and breaks the Bro Code, you just go “Dude, that was un-bro of you” or “Dude, not cool” or “Fuck dude!” But that’s generally it, so starting in 2009, I’m instituting a Man Tax....

Older Writing

This is from a little while ago that I found while poking through my GoogleDocs. I think I wrote this when Captain America died and I had a bit of a realization but… I could just be confused ;P Hunting for Innocence It seems like such an incredible thing to regain. In a world of...

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...

Weird Sights in Kentucky

Ads I have seen so far in Kentucky while here for work: Sterile Cathoders (how do you spell that?) Tons of “Oh my god we need Life Insurance” a commercial for High Fructose Corn Syrup and A commercial simply saying “Be nice to your router” and talking you through how to restart your router WTF?...

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...

Iked

I didnt die in Hurricane Ike, but I along with 90% of Houston am without power. This is being posted via battery and cell modem charged in a car. I’d post more but someone has grilled up the most amazing smelling burger I’ve ever smelled in my life called a “Cowboy Burger” food wins. Sorry...

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...

Thanks Superdave

I have touched down in Sunny Wet Houston, and already my journal has been one chalked (Chocked?) full of adventures. I made train friends and will have some pictures forthwith, I do declare. All that. Anyways I found a nearby source of free internets hosted generously by someone named “Superdave”, to whom this internets entry...
