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.

Weird

I’ve had keys since I was little. I was a latch key kid as young as elementary school. Which means ever since I was like… 7… I’ve had keys to a house, or a car, or a something. Now, as I leave for Houston, I find myself having one set of keys, which I’m giving...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Sprinkle that Bitch

Sprinkling the Infield That’s a -way- better trailer, in my opinion, for the trailer I worked on a few weeks ago. I totally get an out, a fight and a way stern look. Sounds like a good day of softball to me 😛

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...

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...
