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.

Buh?

http://www.massively.com/2008/03/11/pmog-beta-opens-up/ This is the kind of thing I get a stiffy at night thinking about. I signed up and we’ll see how it goes.

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...

Wherein: Nathan Almost Kills Himself

So there I was, holding fire. Let me back up. I decided to make myself some dinner. I had this box of spaghetti from 1943 that said “Support your troops: Buy War Bonds” on it, but my mom ensured me that spaghetti does not, in fact, go bad. So I thanked her for suffering through...

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...

Workin’

So I haven’t done acting in a long time, and I don’t know that that changed today, though I had a pretty cool experience. Cory wanted me to come up to LA to work on a film he was doing. He said he had a part that he thought I’d be really good in and...

Clouds

I really need to get a digital camera. Apologies in advance for trying to describe something that could oh so much more gracefully be captured with a picture. I am sitting in my grandma’s jacuzzi, it’s overcast which is just the kind of weather I like. It’s sunny out, but everything is in the way...

The Beginning

It’s kinda funny that it’s going to have taken this long to get to why I made the new journal. With moving to Palm Desert I have the opportunity for a lot of things, and one of those opportunities is to get several facets of my life back on track. While I largely don’t want...

Casshern

It’s rare that I see a movie I don’t like. And I don’t know if I liked Casshern or not. Hell I don’t know much about the movie at all. To be fair I started it with a solid buzz going after the Superbowl, then the Simpson’s movie, so by the time I got to...

The News

I know I haven’t really gotten to why I switched blogs yet. That’ll come soon, I promise. In the interim I have to talk about today’s news. I went to CNN.com and here are the top news stories. These are put in my idea of least bad, to worst. Movie “Over my dead body” sucks...

It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything

So this is the first post. I have some rather grand aspirations with the new blog. Changing from live-journal to here is just one small change. It’s a step towards taking the longer route, though it might be slightly more of a hassle, because it means a better thing in the long run. In this...

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...

Bukwoski’s got your Balls

Firstly, the previous link is not in fact a real job posting. It’s a link to something funny I put on craigslist and you should check it out. Secondly, Charles Bukowski is fucking amazing. There’s something about when you’re reading poetry and you don’t even need to get the whole thing, it’s enough to just...
