Lazy dude

Today I should be finalizing the last few details on a college report on digital theory and analysis. What I am doing instead is eating chocolate and wathing youtube videos. I am positive that I will get the job done (the report) tonight, but it would be so much nicer if I actually had the balls to go ahead and do it now. Oh yeah, and them I am also blogging in english on a blog that no one is reading (this one, yay!). How productive.

message board culture

leave a comment »

A few days ago I was so unfortunate to share my not too warm feelings towards a well known American drummer ( I wont mention him here), on one of my favorite message boards. He posted a lengthy piece about how much it affected him that certain people (at this point I hadn’t written 1 word yet) on this here board didn’t like him. The guy has a message board of thousands of fans, but feels that he needs the universal thumbs up from everyone and anyone…I guess. The nature of his post was that it was unfair that people didn’t like him (his drumming, that is). How can that be unfair? That’s a matter of personal taste, and in my case, I went online and backed up the guys who had done the initial critiquing of him. BAD FUCKING MOVE. His fans was like bloodhounds and within a few hours I had recieved more than a couple threads about having my teeth kicked in. WOW. I mean…just WOW. What the hell is going on?! Can’t people voice their opinions anymore? It’s just different tastes for different people, come on!

I’ve met him once and he came off as a drunk goofball to me. I don’t know him.

TO ME (Just to underline that this is MY fucking perception of him, not some holy undesputed truth!!!), he is to the art of drumming what McDonalds is to fine dining: NOT related.

What in earth do you do when this happens:

A very good friend of mine just had a baby. I haven’t met them yet with the little new person, but they have managed to send loads of pictures to all their friends, and one word fitted the little guy: Freak. His head is grown in to his neck in a way I have never seen before, and I have seen my share of newborn babies. This isn’t normal. I told one of our mutual friends about it – he hadn’t seen him, and he said “C’mon, how bad can it be?!” -….until he as well was sent the photo freakshow. He was stunned, as am I. I really didn’t know what to say, but just yesterday a doctor had noticed “something unusual” and had asked for them to come in and have his brain plates examined. MAN I am glad I wasn’t the only one!! I felt like the little girl i The Emeperors New Clothes in a freak show anatomy version. Now they await some grueling anwers from the pros, and of course I have nothing but endless empathy and the best of hopes for the little guy.
May his head be healed and may he become as unfreaky as modern western medicine can make him.

Hungover

leave a comment »

Holy shit what a hangover.

So, I guess it’s not a good idea to mix 3 bottles of champagne with a LOT of red wine and a sixpack of beers
?! OK I’m writing this down. I gotta remember this in the future.

I think I’ll call it weekend now, even though it’s barely noon.

Over and out.

She’s all that

I still very much enjoy reading Heather Armstrong. She continues to be the single “best read” out there in the blogosphere. I’ve been reading her for about 4 years now, and recently she’s been highlighted in all sorts of national and international media. If she were ever to write that her husband had died (bless him, he seems cool too!!) I’d buy an airplane ticket right away and head on over to Utah to woo her. Seriously. She’s hot, cute, adorable and very very funny. A couple of years older never bothered me.
