Everthing In Its Right Place

I'll let Thome speak for him self


Ok... it's kinda grindy, but it's great quality considering it was recorded on my phone.... yeah. Radiohead was great.
Gather Tracking Number: 0871240001150903551

This is for anyone who'd come back to listen to the song above again. Here's a special treat. The set list they played was totatly fan oriented (no radio releases), and they played a few new songs, one of which I captured most of. Have a listen, or get it on Gather.

Completley New Radiohead Song!


(e:paul) if/when you get any flack for this just take it down right away.

So so Nerdy

Yes X Men was quite sweet. I won't say to much about it as not to be one of those asinine nerds who talk too much. Hmm, typically I'm the one who poo poos movies that are anything short of spactacular and this one has its flaws, but I loved it. what was more exciting is the fanfare the surrounded the event, and it was an event. There were many nerds in full nerd regallia. I got some pics that I'll post on up fer you peeps. I even bumped into some old friends like cute Lil Amiee who's not so lil' anymore. She's 21 now which means I'm a geezer. She was ...whoah I posted this from my phone about 5 times, before it was finished.

Friggin' X Men

So after a really sweet day of walking everywhere I drove out to Clarence to the Regal to see the new X Men movie before my nerd assed friends could see it and ruin it for me. I didn't even know there was a midnight showing but I bumped into my buddy Chris
Schudio at Thursday at the Square. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was lack luster, but ((e:paul)) and I had fun drinking and people watching. Suspiciously, this clinically insane girl who's name I don't ever remember and who always flirts with me was there. The last few times she bumped into me she I was with ((e:paul)) it's like some kinda curse. She's kind cute but insane and she's always with the fugliest friend. I took her number again, but I might as well have written the star spangled banner in my phone because I'll never call her. I tried dating crazy before. It just doesn't work.

So my walking today proved quite fruitful in many ways as I also have a walking to work mobile phone architecture photo series to share with you peeps. I'll toss up that crazy girl's photo too as a public service. She flirts heavily and usually has a huge boyfriend so steer clear unless you think crazy sex is so much better than sane sex that you're willing to fight for it.

Phoney Tony

Anyone who's ever hung out with (e:paul) in the flesh knows abot his unshakable obsession to his phone. He post losts from it, I think all his photos come from it, and if you've ever seen it you know how complex and intriguing it is. Well to nerds. Like me.

I resisted getting any new phone for a long while and made up in my mind that I wouldn't until one day almost a year ago while hanging out with a few peeps my really old nokia cricket phone took a bath in a dirty puddle. I knew a new phone was inevitable.

To make the phone story short, after a series of serendipitous deals I ended up with the same phone as (e:paul). His nerdy enthusiasm was infectious I guess.

I didn't know how much use I'd ever get out of something like this, and I'm almost ashamed to say I'm quite possibly more obsesed with it than (e:paul) is.

I went picture taking with some friends over the weekend and I didn't have a sweet camera, but I had my phone, and I came back with a thing or two worth seeing. I was at that Robert Creeley thing at Hallwalls too, and instead of succumbing to bored um I posted to (e:strip). Heck, I'm at work and stuck in locked out login land and I'm posting again.

Theres so much more that this phone can do (and has
done). I plan on writing a program for just about anything that I do frequently and a few that will push the margins of fun and/or utility. I crackle with anticipation.

here's some of the pics I took over the weekend. The first one is my friends son. We all get together to nerd it up every once and a while an his son slips further into nerddom every day. Here's the proof (yes he's wearing a Thing costume, no its not Halloween...its Sunday):

Robert Creeley

Here's my first mobile journal. I'm in the church of Ani di Franco at that Bob Creeley farewell. Turn's out Mr. Creeley has a son who's friends with my friends, and the sanctuary of the church is quite pretty. You get photos with this one since the phone's so crazy. check it:

Fake Plastic Trees

I woke up early on Saturday to get "in line" online for tickets to a radiohead show that's coming to Toronto that very few people even knew about. Radiohead is seriously my favorite band ever and I'd sell my first born to see em before I died, ok maybe not my 1st but maybe someone elses baby.

My buddy Andy Blake has the inside scoop on stuff like this so we (Andy, his ex-gf jenny, and I) went down to UB to use their network cause Andy thought it'd be quicker and we'd have a snowballs chance to get tickets before they sold out on us.

The controls for getting the tickets weren't on the page when we got there and we had to wait until 10:00 am EST before they'd appear. We had to keep reloading the page to get the tickets, but the page would lock you out if you hit refresh to many times (more than 6x a minute), so it was going to be a mad dash at 10 on the button to get seats at all.

10:00 and 0 seconds am EST rolled around and I was frantic. I smashed F5 (a reload page short cut in both Firefox and IE) and I was rushing to fill out my info for the tickets. By 10:00 30 seconds am EST the show was sold out, and I didn't get any tickets, but Jenny and Andy did.

Yes... I was sad.

But it wasn't 10:00 am in Chicago yet so I decided to try for tickets there, so we waited an hour.

I really wanted to go to the Toronto show, but I have a buddy or two in Chi-town it might be fun. All 3 of us tried for tickets again and Jenny was the only one to get in. Luckily. I bought the tickets and we all went out to eat some grub at Pano's to celebrate

(I guess (e:jenks) saw me but was hanging w/ her parents so she decided not to complicate things)

I bought tickets but didn't have anyone definite to go with since going to Chi-town is a bit more of an endeavor than going to Toronto. I had a friend named Ben who wanted to go with me, but he just got a new job but had to take a pay cut for the better hours and is getting married so I didn't know if he could afford a concert ticket and a plane ticket. In my fit of excitement and desire to have a music fan go with me I called my ex-gf like an idiot to see if she wanted to go.

Not to hang all my dirty laundry around town, but she owes me quite a bit of money, but I didn't care as long as she could pay her own way. She said yeah, and I told her it was first come first serve with who ever wanted to go, could afford it and confirmed, and luckily Ben came through.

My ex-gf has been more nice to me than she has been since we first started dating and it's either going to be awful or really sweet to tell her that Ben's going in her stead. I haven't told her yet, but I think I should/will by Monday. I just confirmed that my Chi-town buddy Neil can put us up for the night and we're going to get there a day early and cruise the town so um...yeah I need to call her and tell her something.

I'm taking bets on weather the niceness dries up quick after I tell her she's not going with, but che sera sera. I didn't break up with her so that she'd be nice to me...though it would be nice, since I think I treated her really well.

oh gawd it's late...

Last days of the lappy

Yes... the lappy is leaving me. I'm up right now backing up all the episodes of Enterprise I got from (e:paul) and (e:matthew) cause I haven't watched them yet.

It was faithful for all this time, and now it's time for it to move on to greener pastures.

I'm buddies with that dude you sometimes see at the pink with the devilsticks and he dosen't have a lappy and wants to buy mine.

I figured I should sell it since I have a pretty sweet compy at home and don't ever use it since I'm such a socialite that the idea of not being around people is just a irritating as the idea of not playing with computers. Lappy + Coffee shop usually solved that, but I'm becoming a lot more well adjusted with my single bachlor life and I like my empty apartment a lot more than I used to. Not to mention I'll be buying a phone like the one that (e:paul) has to tide me over until I get the neolappy.

This install of the lappy lasted me quite a while. I still have stuff on here from my trip to San Fransisico which isn't documented on (e:strip) cause I wasn't much of a poster back then.

Soon as those videos finish I'll start the reinstall process and all the meories that me and the lappy had togheter will be wiped clean. Kinda makes me sad, but I don't wanna cry so how's about I talk about the new lappy instead?!

I'm getting one of those new mac book pros. I guess you can run windows on it and it's mac that's all svelt and macalicious so it's more than a win wins situation.

I'm saving for a really good one since it'll be my main mac machine and I want a service plan on it too. A buddy of mine said that mac service is the bizomb and I belive him. Told me a story about when he had to send a mac lappy in for service and it came back virtually a new machine.

So untill my mac mackie comes in I guess you won't be able to catch me at SPoT, and all my posts will have to come from my crazy desky that, by the way, has a silly Lan Party momaboard and a crazy strobe light case, you can probably tell why we don't hang out so often.

Yeah..., but I've got other news...

Of Mongeese and Men

Thanks to all the helpful people who decide to put their two cents in about the previous post. I really appreciate it. I think I have enough spare are change to catch the bus now...

Just to let cha'll know. I've decide to take most of the advice I was given (in retrospect). I think we're through the worst of it by now, and things will only get better, but I"ll be damed if I ever go on a trip with her anywhere ever again, (there goes Cancun). And to be a little less vague about the last bit. I think Jenny's great for the most part, but she lives in LA, and she's really finicky, and she's done some stuff that I could never forgive her for, so I will only ever be her friend, though she's been hinting at other things lately. I just hope that this trip hasn't put a big fat bent on our friendship.

Getting back to enjoying my self, I've been avoiding talking about anything with her really and enjoying my self with my other friends who came on this trip, and some new acquaintances. To speak of them, we went to Haneuma Bay this morning, which is this really sweet coral reef nature preserve today. This trip to the bay will make 3 times on this trip, but I figured since I bought some snorkel gear I'd better get full use out of it. We have 4 underwater cameras full of shots that I promise to put some good pics up from. I got a shot of a sea turtle, I hope it came out OK, but even if it's blurry it was sweet to see him doing his thing right before I nearly drowed in the ocean.

Yeah I freaked out when I was on my way back to shore. Apparently swmming with the current is more easy than swimming against it, and when you're 30+ feet out to sea...ok bay, with huge scary fish and really sharp coral reef with cute but poisonous little sea urchins in it you um...well you freak out.

My freak out didn't last long, some surfin rescue dude came to save me, I felt like jabronie, but it was to be expected and no one really gave a poop, so now I'm telling all of you don't laugh. stop. stop now. The bay is not super touristy, and it will never be over crowed cause they stop lettin' peoples in when the parking area is filled up. It's only a dolla to park, and 5 bucks to get into the preserve, but you've never been on a cleaner beach with clearer water and with more to do besides volleyball. It's really easy to get there you just take the H1 east out of Honolulu and there's signs right away, but like i said, get there early (like 7am, which is 1pm Buffalo time, but you know what i mean).

Right after we came up from the bay we saw bunch of mongeese stealing crap from the trash. There are no indigenous fuzzy mammals on Hawaii, but the mongooses were brough here to take out the snake population, and they went crazy, and now Hawaii has a mongoose problem. But they are super cute. Nope no squirrls (werid huh?), they do have geekos however. Apparently a gecko will steak out a tree or some such (even if it's fake) and live there for a grip. We stopped for ice cream and there was one lampin on this fake bush outside of a curiosity shop next to the ice cream parlor. I like the lil lizards, but um I don't have time for animals what whit my workaholism. But, If I did ever get an animal I might get a gecko and I would call him george and he'd be my friend.... uh, here's that shot of the leezard...check him out...

He's concerned about your car insurance premium

We still have the illegal "Stairway to Heaven" hike to do, and some parasaling if that'll ever happen. I guess there's this moutian with so many thousands of stairs in it so it's kinda easy to hike since the trail is a buch of stairs, but it's tough cause there's a friggin' thousand of them. The view is supposed to amazing, and if it is I'll be sure to get a lucky shot.

Ooh, one more animal story before I bust out. The first day we got here we were targeted as tourists (how'd that happen) and this really friendly local weedled 5 bucks out of us. She wanted 5 buck per person having pictures taken with her brids, but um...well she was a schist-er so we only gave a five spot even for all of us Here's one of the photos we took...

A happy Jenny, being ripped off

OK you (e:strip)pers I have many many many more photos but I won't over do it. Hmm... here's one more for the road, a really rare shot of the Hawaiian tree sneaker.

Not even a pun, but just as bad

Complications with the Moon

So this is how nerd I am.

I'm sitting here deciding on whether this will be a post about my trip that, amazing setting besides, is getting frustrating because of the company I'm in, or to finish wrtting the first chapter of my Star Wars story (yes I write Star Wars stories, I'm a big fat nerd and I love it).

Ok, I guess this posting getting done while the events are still fresh in my mind would help. Really peeps, I just need to let off some steam, and getting some answers wouldn't hurt either. I amost had the vacation of my life and the moon had to go and throw a huge monkey wrench in it.

Really this post will be more of a series of questions. If you feel that you can do so legitimately please answer any one of them.

1. How does one deal with a girl who is in her um...cycle. Since it seems if you're too stand offish they are moody, and if you're too involved they are pushy. Ok, I know that saying that a girl could be either of those during her time to her is tantumount to suicide, and that that both of those statements are generalizations... but if you can answer that question it's a valid one.

2. I have sisters, ok, and as far as I know women know when (generally) this sort of thing is going to happen (ie every 28 days). They also must know that they can be a bit more irritable when it does..., so why the hell would any girl ever book a vacation with just friends, or even some girl friends, or whatever on or around that time? Is being in your cycle ever something that would stop you from oh say going vacation where you'll be kooked up in a room with other people that you are certainly not accustom to dealing with on a day to day basis.

3. Do you think that the way someone behaves during that time is a accurate depiction of their character? Like I said I have sisters, and they can be tough to handle around then, but things typically clear up by the time it is over. It's not to entirely different than when someone gets drunk and loses control. It just seems a lot more directed, and vindictive. I understand that they just had a rough time with their emotions because of the changes that is going on in their bodies, and after years of expiring this second hand I like to think I kinda understand, but do I? Is it them who's acting that way, or is it their condition that's making them something that they are not ....exactly?

Ok the next few questions will be more about me than my curiosities about women and their biology, and more about something I posted about before. Jenny.

4. If you had a really close friend that you dated once before end up being probably one of your best friends ever do you think that that's

a. A pathetic excuse for hoping for something more
b. Something that's normal and that happens all the time
c. the plot of a sappy romantic comedy
d. none of the above, please supply an explanation.

5. If you think that beyond knowing that your friend could never be more than a friend to you because of things that happened in the past, in the present, and because there's really no hope for a future would you on a trip where you were stuck with them for at least another week where you might have to rely on their hospitality explain to them that you could never be more than friends, or would you wait until you were safe at home and give them a call?
