Garden and stuf

So Just wanted to throw this out, garden walk just started and I will be there in some form should be interesting today and sunday. I love that all these people descend into my hood, maybe I'll see some of you out there

Last night 464 and the 3D stuff was fun. I think the 3D gave me the headache. Turns out that with the two color glasses I looked up a light and saw a rainbow well ok color specturm felt like being dramatic. but I see blue out of the right eye (wasn't it green though) and red out of the left. Ones brain is supposed to combine them and yes the 3D effects looked different kinda from each eye. Maybe this explains the 3D movie thing....... Oh yeah it was great to see you (e:heidi) (I think I might have talked also, HA).

Tonight planning on go to Diablo, that should be a good time. I admit I only listened to like one song from one of the bands. Hoping my pictrues come out good. Wish I could drink at the bar and take pictures but then you get the mirrors on the stage and I wish I would good enough to take pictures that way but no way am I......

Lights on vs. LIghts off

First lets see if I can ad a picture to this journal I couldn't yesterday.

image

Awesome it works now so that means I can do my Festival pictures. I must ad that I don't work for Club Diablo and I don't know any of the music or really know what is going on, but I love the art and think I need to take the camera to this.

In the past few years the quality of TV and Movies have really gone up. You have plasma and flat screens and high def and all this stuff, not to mention now they make 3D movies (sorry not the same as when a 3D movie when I was around as a kid) and huge IMAX screens. Now they have 3D TV that come with glasses. It blows my mind it really does. But there is one thing that they don't have other then 3D shows. You can never really make sitting at a show the same as sitting on your couch, no mater how big the speakers and screen are it just isn't the same.

That is what leads me to my point. The other night I watched 2012,and I did enjoy it. I'm at home so the lights are on. Well that movie and most movies are made to be watched in the dark so very often there are dark scenes and you can't see anything at all. I'm not going to say that they should lighten them up how would you know it is night or someplace dark? What I'm saying is that like how every show and movie has some kind of rating, they should have one for if it is viewed better with lights on or off or maybe even dim. People go out and buy these costly players and they hook up to the net and you can stream movies onto computers and every TV in the house and all kinds of things on these giant TVs that brag about how clear the picture is and how great the sound is, but if you aren't watching it in the right type of light you lose some of that.

ItalinFESt movies

So I sarted out Saturday by going to see Inception. Visualy it was pretty good. Good story, good action, good acting. All in all it was a pretty good movie. With out giving anything away when the movie ends I was surprised that I understood it all. But then I started to think about what they showed at the end and started to wonder if the end really meant something else, but maybe I just over thought it............

After the movie what I should have done is gone and got a ticket at tops for Apoclitca . I would have loved to have seen them. But with the festival and having to change (should have just worn jeans). Plus at Towne Ballroom they allow cameras but sometimes the band doesn't so you often don't know untill you are in line if they are permited. This makes me wish for 2 things
1. I lived downtown, this would make going to shows or even Club Diablo so much better, but in this case get in line if no cameras take it home and come right back, no big deal
2. had a phone with camera, who knows maybe I would call someone sometime, This would also mean that when at the Festival yesterday I could have mobile posted what I was eating or something

I wound up watching some stuff I recorded and got caught up on some shows. Then I watched 2012 , that was pretty good love all the destruction, again great in a movie, not so good in real life, plus the effects where pretty good. Then before bed watched Porno for about 30 seconds, ha not really. I'm bumbed I didn't make the concert but maybe that gives me a few more $ for next weekend. If I'm remembering this right Friday (e:heidi) has stuff at the 464 gallery on friday, then On satruday I have to go to Club Diablo: not sure what it will be but I think it is going to be rockablillie bands and side shows or was it slide shows, in any event it sounds interesting...........

Here are some pictures from the festival

Pictures didn't show up lets try this again argh

Well for what ever reason the picture file names aren't showing up in the journal so that means like last time no pictures, guess I'll try a different browser later instead of using MSN we shall see

Well Now I'm using Safari after a computer shut down lets see what happens picture wise.
Well there are no pictures of the pictures where the file names show up and the files aren't added to this journal so still isn't working........

2010 taste of Buffalo

So first of all I was nice to run into (e:chico) and talk at Hardware after the stripteasers on Saturday. It was also nice to talk and see (e:tinypliny) on Sunday on my way home. If my back was feeling all stiff I could have gotten more tickets and delt with the crowd but at that point I was tasted out.

Saturday both before and after the zombie walk I had a good time at the taste of Buffalo. I did wind up going to Roxy's and had a good time, yes it was my first time there. Mistress J of the stripteasers had a Burleque class and these where her students on stage, they where all pretty good, and (not that I had a chance with any of them regardless of their sexual preference) Some people there watching where pretty nice to.

One of the Foods I tried before the zombiewalk you saw up there was a Buffalo Burger. It was listed as a healthy item but to me tasted pretty much like a hamburger so I wonder how it was healthy and if it was really buffalo?

The Zombie walk was a great time. It would have been better if I left the taste about 5 minutes later then I would have been on the right side and shot them all directly but it was a great time and then back to the taste, the funny thing is I'm not the only one who left the taste to go watch the zombie walk these two ladies did the same thing I did but they went and got into the back of the walk and then later as I returned they passed me to go back to the taste, that was interesting, but kinda odd......

So Back to the bar for a second, I wish I would have had my camera, maybe the hot zombie chick would have posed with me or maybe she would have kicked my ass who knows. One of the people I was with told me some chunky girl was checking me out, I never noticed it. But it is tough when Hardware is small and then people are dancing, then you are checking out people your self, then you also want to try and get to the bar. If it was when I was talking to (e:chicho) maybe it was him who was getting checked out, but I know when talking to someone I would never notice it, Sat was a great time and very busy.

The Pictures of the Motorcylcle that will be coming up is from inside New Era cap.......

This last weekend was great and I don't really see another weekend this summer that will be this good for some time, of course I don't know what is going on or have anything planned yet. But I do have an (e:strip) question the Taste Of Buffalo is a Summer thing but also it is a bunch of pictures, is there a way to have a post under two catergories?

Zombiewalk 2010

This was wild to see it really was. I think what I'm going to do is start with the pictures I got from the lot at blockbuster video since those are the best.

Weekend?

So one thing about having a could is you never know how good or bad it really is. Sometimes the nose runs and sometimes it doesn't, sometimes you have the headache and sometimes you don't. I'm hoping I feel fine for Sat. and Sunday that is right it is Taste of Buffalo time. Who knows I may even check out the Entertainment. Some things I think you can do sick, but the Taste I think the crowds drive you insane. PLus if the sickness effects how things taste do you really want to spend money on food. Well still good people watching and picture taking there is allways interesting stuff going on and give aways and stuff........

I may go out Sat. night if I feel up to it. The Stripteasers are performing at Roxy's. The Only thing is well ok two things. I know this sounds weird to some. I feel like I might not be welcome or not wanted there. I will admit I have never been there, but understand that it is a gay bar. Now maybe that term is wrong. I don't know it is just a feeling I get. The other thing is Main. I'm not saying Main is bad but there are some sketchy people around there and I don't know as I want to deal with that or take that chance.

Sunday night this band I like As Summer Dies is playing at club Paradise. As much as I would love to go, I don't know where that is or how I would even get there or get home so I think that is out. However I have been watching TNA recently and they are having a PPV so I think I'll go with that, just gotta find time to get a video tape so I can record it.

I doubt I will go out friday need to keep my strength up. Plus it will be the last day of a long 4 day work week. Hope everyone has a great weekend and who knows maybe I'll see you peeps out and about and maybe I'll even snap a picture of you or something.........

2010 4th of July

I wasn't sure when I was going to go down the marina wasn't sure what the fam was doing. Turns out I went down by myself and had a good time. I really wanted to see the flag folding thing. Yes it got pretty Dramatic at the end.

wish #7 Neat Freak (UFC)

So Last night I did get UFC and Had a good time watching the fights. I can admit I don't watch it that much, hey there are many things I like and so it is tough to get a good balance. But you know what would have been cool (ok just part of it would be to see who shows up) to do one of those internet party invites thing. It would also be fun to do those for wrestling as well. I used to have people over for PPVs in the past, but that seems like such a long time ago. Yes sometimes they do get a little bit crazy and then you have to watch the replay to understand everything that went down, that is more on the wrestling ones really. But my place isn't fit for me let alone a group of people.

That isn't the only reason why a Part of me wishes I was a neat freak. (IF anyone is reading this) I need to explain that a clean freak and a neat freak are not the same thing, in some people they can be. A clean freak needs everything to sparkle and shine and be germ free. That can be kinda scary and lead to being scared of germs. What I mean by a neat freak is that every thing is organized in some form and there isn't any clutter and important papers are hidden away and when you walk into the place it looks un lived in. Of course I assume that along with that would be a very nice and big pretty TV in a holder and all the DVD's and CD's and movies would be easy access but not all over the place, sounds like a great way to live. Tables with drink holders and great couches or what ever. Why do I picture wood floors when I have a carpet in all my rooms.

Yes having a bunch of people over for food and drink and a great time would be one benefit but it wouldn't be the only one. I think a general sense of relaxation would be one of them, when I wasn't stressing about the neatness. But If I was a neat freak it would be 2nd nature and I wouldn't think about it. I think it would make budgeting better. If you are that organized you won't go oops that bill is late again. I think it could also lead to more planning of stuff out side of the house I'm not sure.

The thing that I wonder about is if I could function. Say people are over and they say put something where it doesn't belong would I freak. "You have to fill that glass up or wash it you can't wait till this fight ends", ha. See because the empty glass just sitting out of place might drive me insane. I wonder if I would be able to bring someone home from a bar or if it would be the same problem as with glass. "could you fold those and put those on that holder, yeah on the floor doesn't work", ha.

I think that if someone could come up with a way to train people to be different then what they are (I know they used to training kinda like that years ago but that was more like a manors thing) and then they had to let you go back, they could make a lot of money. But I think it would also be a great service. This kinda Happens on a show I haven't seen in some time called Wife Swap. It would happen because the families who trade wives/husbands would all ways be so different. So it is a way to see how a family who runs the home and how they raise their kids different works out for them. Hopefully each family can learn from the other and take aspects that they like, that they just can't do themselves.

When ever I write these I all ways feel as though I've left stuff out or could have said more but am never sure of what I should have said differently. It isn't like I write an out line. After all this is a blog not a paper for school, thinking back I never did an out line back then, maybe if I did I would be a neat freak. I'm not saying that I want to be one but it would or might be nice to be that way. I wonder.......................
