Hair of the dog

April 30, 2006

It’s been a long time since I’ve been out drinking two nights in a row. It was probably an april, maybe two years ago. I’ll just say this: two-day hangovers, still as unpleasant as they ever were. I think, on the whole, worth it though. My Sims fun-meter was way into the red. Good to have it back in the green.

7 Highlights of the weekend:

1) Young man in the urinal beside me at the gay bar saying, “You have a real nineties look about you. I like it!”

2) Communally coming up with the band-name Underwearwolf and thinking it was the greatest thing ever.

3) Young man from gay bar bathroom saying to tracy, “You have a real nineties look about you. I like it!”

4) Realizing Underwearwolf is not that great a band-name. And regretting a vague, drunken, hype-building post about it.

5) Kristjanne and David’s slapping game.

6) Getting a hair cut to partially rid myself of this “nineties” look. Also, the Coronation Street biddy who cut it. She wanted to give me a Ceasar cut to which I said, “Noooooo.” As I did to the Ryan Seacrest.

7) Googling “Underwearwolf” and finding out there’s a DJ using it already.

Hoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwlllllllllll the wolf is upon us….

Feeling discombobulated. Interestingly “combobulate” is not a word. Also interestingly “gruntled” is a word as is “whelmed”; both of which I was under the impression didn’t exist without their more famous prefixes.

I think that I will live without a roommate for a while. Since I’m in a position where I can afford to do so, I should take advantage of the situation. We’ll see if I get cabin fever. I guess I could always get more cats if that happens.

Getting passionate about the important matters in life.

I can’t believe I spent an hour last night arguing about Episode 3 with my friend on his blog. Why can’t I just let it go?

You know how these things go…

April 25, 2006

Boss isn’t in the office so…

1) Who is the last person you high-fived?:
Who knows. I would have had to have been drunk. If I’ve high-fived you lately sober, call me out.

2) If you were drafted into a war, would you survive?:
Yes. Because they’d draft me for my drafting skills and I’d work in the safety of a secret HQ bunker. Maybe that one in War Games that has the huge bank-vault door.

3) Do you sleep with the TV on?
If Chelsea’s up watching TV after I’ve gone to bed, yes.

4) Have you ever drank milk straight out of the carton?
Milk is disgusting. I’ve drank apple-juice out of the carton though.

5) Have you ever won a spelling bee?:
I don’t recall ever being in one.

6) have u ever been stung by a bee?:
Has anyone ever not been? I once had an entire wasp nest attack me. Developed a phobia from that one.

7) How fast can you type?:
120,000,000 characters per year.

8) Are you afraid of the dark?
I’m afraid of people in the dark.

9) Eye color?:

11) When is the last time you chose a bath over a shower?:
I bath at night for relaxation semi-regularily. Shower in the mornings for hygiene.

12) Do you knock on wood?:
If I’m not looking where I’m going. Or perhaps if someone has a wooden door.

13) Are you drinking anything right now?

15) Can you hoola hoop?:
I don’t have a hoop, so no.

16) Are you good at keeping secrets?:
If I say yes, people will assume I’m keeping secrets from them. If I say no, all the people I’m keeping secrets for are going to get nervous. So I’ll say, maybe.

17) What do you want for Christmas?
A tank that looks like a giant armadillo

18) Do you know the Muffin Man?:
Yes. We play poker with the Purple Pieman on fridays.

19) Do you talk in your sleep?:
I wouldn’t know.

20) Who wrote the book of love?
There’s a book? Damn. I gotta get that book.

21) Have you ever flown a kite?:
I’ll leave that up to your imagination.

23) Do you consider yourself successful?:
Relative to the crackies on Victoria Crescent, yes.

No cell.

I can multi-task.

I seem to have misplaced my leprechaun.

A day or two ago.

30) And truly meant it?
I meant it.

31) How often do you drink?:

32) How are you feeling today?
Annoyed. The cheap headphones I bought at lunch because I forgot my headphones at home this morning sound like cheap headphones.

33) Are you black?:

34) Have you ever been suspended or expelled from school?:
I don’t think so.

35.)What are you looking forward to?:
Jamming with Mike T

36) Have you ever crawled through a window?:
I used to crawl through the sunroof in my car when I’d lock the keys inside.

37) Have you ever eaten dog food?:
Milk Bone and Tender Vittles.

38) Can you handle the truth?
I can handle that the Earth is round. If MJ really didn’t molest those children, my mind might blow up.

39) Do you like green eggs and ham?
I don’t like eggs of any colour.

40) Any cool scars?:
I have a burn on my wrist from a knife point heated red-hot in a candle flame. It’s not that cool.

Tuesday be a Monday today

I had yesterday off. I’d like today off too. I suppose if I didn’t go to work today, I could have everyday off. That wouldn’t be good. I’d better grab some coffee and go.

Revelations and masks

April 23, 2006

Having renounced Time and Anger, I am now working on the renunciation of Fear. It’s a big one though. I think I should begin with Regret and then move onto Fear later.


This week I discovered my Californian friend Peter’s blog. It’s was a good peek into his life. There’s something comforting in knowing some people stay true to their core as they grow up. Peter’s one of those guys. He’ll never be anyone but Peter and no one else is going to be Peter.

This is the exact opposite of another friend’s blog/site I discovered this week which is entirely devoted to disguising their true nature. Which is a reflection of how they live their life.


Sat in on Pins of Light. I seem to be the loose cannon as far as content goes. Good therapeutic drum circle though. Or drum and grunt and wail circle… Mind-blowing phone-in callers. I have to say, the entire session was rife with mind-blowing blowing of minds.

The sun seems to make the meth zombies hide under bridges or something. Yet attracts asian tourists.

Good day for walking — cool breeze at the back; warm (but not hot) sun on the face. Walked on the waterfront for the first time since… probably last summer. Seems the same. That guy was still stacking rocks. That accordion family was still rocking out. Or rocking back and forth at least.

Steve’s moved everything around at FR again. The electronica bin has been plunked in a spot where it looks like it’s not supposed to be there.

I’m at that point in my life when I feel I have to ask myself the hard questions. Questions like: Do I really need to own the first three Thomspon Twins records? What about that third Blamange record — mediocre or just bad? So I spent last night weeding out records. Things like the second Big Country record. A lot of bands’ second and third records made it into the “to sell” boxes. I should have a sale like Jack did. Except then people would be in my house.

The nice thing about MySpace is all those projects I record that I don’t think are worth (or are too problematic — as in dorky) to commit to CD-R have a venue. For instance my gospel project.

Ka-nives live at Fascinating Rhythm May 19, 7pm

April 18, 2006

Sounds like the League of Fantastic may be the Duo of Fantastic at this event. Ken and I should discuss this.
