Friday mp3

last weekend was freshman orientation. this weekend is freshman disorientation. *evil laugh* they’ll be ok, i’ll watch out for ’em. i’m going to try something new for Fridays. I guess it needs a name so I’ll call it the Friday mp3. Every Friday, for a 24 hour period or thereabouts i’ll put up an mp3 […]

The Killers

i am a chicken with my head cut off. this will continue till mid december. grad schools, resumés, job interviews, work, web design, practice, homework, papers, tests, quizzes. it makes one fairly pant just reading it. i need to practice bilocating or go clone myself over at the bio building. with that done i could […]

Senior Year Day 2

Intermediate Film Production: is not a class about filmmaking, but instead about stress management, so sayeth my prof Bill Donaruma. I believe him, he runs it like a Hollywood production, but since we have significantly less funding and less experienced people than Hollywood it must necessarily be more difficult. Film Noir: will be interesting at […]


Fundamentals of Archaeology: This class is going to be easy. Two tests, two quizzes and thats all. Professor Schurr is a character, but I already knew that. What I didn’t know is that he is a Super Tolkien Nerd like myself. Bonus! Cinema Ideologies: Taught by my FEMINIST, socialist, jewish, buddhist film prof Jill Godmilow. […]

Permanent Leftovers

as the klaxon did its thing, the bed erupted into a flurry of fur and feathers. i emerged into the blaring half morning from the confused ball and stumbled over to the off switch. in the following silence i examined myself to ensure that all my parts were intact and that my head was screwed […]

Cream Soda

Reason number 64 why Connersville sucks. It is a whiskey town. I stopped at 3 liquor stores in search of my alcohol of choice: Stolichnaya vodka. none of them had it. Absolut is the “high quality” vodka. however, if you can think of an obscure brand of whiskey they had it, in all its varieties. […]

End of Summer

the summer is over. it was a good summer. i read very much. Its a tossup as to whether Walden or A Clockwork Orange was my favorite read. Pretty different books, eh? I wasn’t quite as active as I wished to be, but I got 6 more fencing lessons than I expected. I watched Lawrence […]

Screams of Reason

i’m about 75% through Screams of Reason by David Skal. Its mostly about Hollywood’s fascination with mad science. Its ok. but a good shot in the dark by my mother who bought it for me. i can see many different tracks where expansion and deeper academic discourse would add some insights but it is pretty […]


i was going through the stash of pictures i have on my computer and came across this one from January moments after shaving my head. since i just shaved off my beard attempt, my logical progression led me to decide that i should put up this picture. people said i looked like Moby, Billy Corgan, […]

Baldur’s Gate

i finally conquered Baldur’s Gate. Its a damn long game. damn good too. i only have one beef with it: the experience cap. wtf is up with that? the game has a built in mechanism to limit my character’s growth!? 89,000 experience is the limit, and leveling up to (prepare for condensed nerdiness) an 8th […]

Behold! The T-shirt

last night i awoke with a film idea at 3:46 in the morning. i cannot tell it to you though for fear that the fascist elves will acquire it and manipulate it toward their goal of world domination. went shopping today. bought clothes. saw a shirt reading: Video games don’t affect children. If Pacman had […]

Only Here

Only in Connersville would seeing a enormous-mulleted man riding a child’s bicycle down the road with a fierce look on his face that defiantly resists any admission that he is doing such a thing be a normal sight.

Concerts and Chicago

Balls! tis been awhile. Here is the last week. wednesday: went up to Purdue then drove with Phil to Chicago where we stayed with his brother Bo and his fiance? Kerri. played monopoly. lost horribly. i HATE that. thursday: area2 concert featuring Ash, Blueman Group, Busta Rhymes, David Bowie, and Moby. all around good concert. […]

Dirty Toenails

my mother seems to think i am just like her brother, my uncle Collier. she decided this quite suddenly when i decided to go into town. wearing sandals. with ‘dirty’ toes. apparently by uncle did the same when he was my age. i happen to feel honored by this comparison. my uncle Collier was a […]

Packrat Purge

the packrat purge is complete and several grocery bags are now filled with random paraphrenalia that i deemed unneccessary to store for another year. today i also washed my car and bought a picture album to house my collegiate photographs. my room is now livable for the next few weeks. we need water terribly. we’ve […]

Home, briefly

well i drove 4 hours home today. i’ll officially be here for three weeks although i am going to spend some time in Chicago. as soon as i got home i began ‘nesting’ as my mother calls it, going through all of my stuff and running around in circles like a dog does to assert […]


you probably already know it, but i’m a skinny bastard. the energy my metabolism burns in one day could most likely power a small country for a week. i’m not kidding. lately i’ve been kinda sluggish, and a couple of days ago i figured out why. since i have been cooking for myself this summer, […]

Upcoming Concerts

I’m starting to get hyped up, in a week i get to go see David Bowie and Moby on the Area2 tour, and Juliana Hatfield. Plus I’m going to get to chill with some friends a I haven’t seen in awhile in Chicago. I’ve also been listening to some new music. my buddy Matt recommended […]
