just doing nothing today. i'm still upset that i can't watch "The Best Fails of 2010" produced by Twisted Nederland. for the last time, HEY THATVIDEOSITE.COM READ THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT HOW THE VIDEO STOPS AT 2:35. i don't want to join youtube.com just to watch one video ("best fails") because it's "offensive". when the hell does the "youtube community" get to decide what i watch? if they haven't noticed there is more messed up shit on youtube than people falling off a roof or going down hills in shopping baskets.
i realize that oasis is getting more attention these days, it's really great. now i see there are alot more users on here, and just like in the "Oasis celebrates it's 15th year!" article the part about this place becoming a "full-blown social network" i think it's going to happen. little by little, new user by new user. i love this place and those who keep it going.
ok go to youtube and go to whatever video link, or your favorite, does not matter. pause the video at 0:00 and hold down the left arrow key then while holding the left arrow key down hit the up arrow key and you will have a pleasent surprise. please send comments if this works.
i want to go on a pilgramige to Jerusalem. i've been feeling inclined to see The Holy Lands. and it might make a good vaction spot... if there wasn't a situation going on there.
i can't stop listening to the "I know a girl" single by: All About Chad. it's so cute, the whole single just has three songs; 1. I know a girl, 2. You're too popular, 3. You are the woman. the one little record from 1995 has stood the test of time and ended up in my collection of music.
i had a relaxing day. i just decided to hang out at the house all day, doing some research (theology mainly), i can just go on about how i did nothing and relaxed all day, but i'd really rather not.
it's funny the amount of time i could waste on my Android phone. it's really ridculous but it has to be one of the best invetions ever (for me, in my honest opinion). a phone that's a music player, video viewer, camera, video camera, internet capable device, and fun device. it's so neat.
back to school. it's not so bad, finally going to graduate in just a few months and leave all my enemies behind (enemies aren't so bad though, however they are rather bitchy, LOL!). i miss my Junior Year though, had a lot of fun, not a whole lot of bad things happened. i was reflecting yesterday and saw that i made that year the best of my high school career thus far, but this new year i made a resolution... to make Senior Year top Junior Year. i think i can do it, i'm feeling very sure of this.
so i'm making my own webpage and it's going to be hosted on my old notebook (converted it into a server). it's my first webpage and unfortunately i can only put up an MHTML webpage, and to make a long story short it will be plain and simple webpage similar to the webpages in the early days of the World Wide Web. the server will be hosted privately under password protection, since i'm not ready to have it go public it's a test run so to say. so no one be surprised when i ask you to test run my webpage, and do whatever you can to see if you can find dead links, errors, Et Cetera.
today i was think to myself, "i don't fit in anywhere". and so i then thought "fuck it, i'm just a hybrid in that way". now even though i don't fit in anywhere especially here, i'm actually not having any apathy, or any negative outlook. i've decided to stop trying to fit in, it's too hard and complex. i have no idea how others manage to do it, probably my slight "ld" disposition.
i know skill is important to have, especially in this life. for example, i if wanted to be a musician i would have to lead a meager life under constant debt because i can't read musical notation to save my life. how does it apply? well, to be held in high regard you must absolutely prove that you have mastered and dominated a necessary part of being a musician.
but i got a red Nintendo Wii! from my dad, it was so nice of him to do so. :) i'm all happy about it. it's so awesome! it can do so much stuff. it can emulate a Gamecube. so i used a few Gamecube games, it can also use Gamecube controllers. it cames with two games packaged: "Super Mario Bros. Wii" and "Wii Sports". i'm not a big fan of the sports one, but i love the mario brothers game. :) the whole thing is red it stands out but, (IT'S RED, MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE COLOR!).
i am still trying to grasp the concept of this much time being left to me. so many things i could do. like; classical guitar, folk guitar, electric guitar, bass, piano, harmonica, making a computer server, play gamecube, listen to music, read books, watch movies, finally make that short film. so many things, so much time. it's almost annoying. it's relaxing though, i'll try to squeeze as much fun out of this time as i can.
so i was brought up in a house full of; wood, lead paint, sixty year old wallpaper, cast-iron hardware, glass door knobs, and the biggest windows. the house itself to date is 83 years old. i find it odd how i grew closer to the past than with modern times. i've grown accustomed to; the thick blankets used on cold nights, the creak of floorboards when walking, seeing modern items blending with various antiques and few relics, the occasional shift of the house making it very hard to open and close my bedroom door.
yesterday i went to the local music shop, and picked up a Dunlop glass slide, and a Dunlop elastic capo. i like how the glass slide fits perfectly on my pinky, it has good weight and clear undistorted sound. as for the capo ($3) i expected the worst. it was surprisingly well worth $3. given that you need some ambidexterity to stretch the elastic band to around the neck to the other side of the plastic coated metal bar (the design on the woven elastic looks great on my classical guitar).
i strongly dislike my feelings.
well, i'm pretty taxed tonight. no homework so that's a win in of itself. i asked myself a question today, why is it that older people complement my guitar playing yet others of my age show absolutly no interest in what i play? of course i guess it is a great repellent for people my age. after all nothing repels more than early baroque lute transcriptions for guitar! i had a thought today also (though there are always many) that i should cut my hair, so i could look like a much younger Neil Diamond.
