|Teeth got smashed||April 14, 2014, 2:44 pm|
So I was drinking over at my friends, getting ready to go out and we were having a bit of a laugh at my mates expense which he wasn't too happy about, this resulted in him elbowing me in the face and smashing in my 2 front teeth.
I've been to the dentist and apparently it will take about 4 weeks to get it fixed during which time I can't bite anything, can't smile in public without feeling a bit self conscious etc. Let me just say that we really do take everything for granted.
|So I Moved... Again||April 13, 2014, 6:33 pm|
Hey guys, I just want to say that I moved to a new house again as of April 12, 2014, and the house is also in a different town that's near our old town. We also moved in with mom's boyfriend, and some of you might wonder why.
You see, we found out that our landlord wasn't paying the mortgage with the rent money mom gave her, and this got the house we got in March 2013 foreclosed. The house was in the foreclosure process before, but the landlord saved the house before it became final. So mom refused to pay the landlord before we moved out, so the landlord gave us a three day notice to try to evict us, but it was pointless for the landlord to do so.
So yeah, we had to move yesterday, and it will take a while to make the house nice to live in.

yeah, so I was drunk the other night and I think I caught my foreskin in my zipper.
It's fucking sore. It looks gross, lightly skinned, still weeping white blood cells. The scab that is forming... well, it's less of a scab, more of a geological formation made of pus, blood and copious pants fluff.
I wish I had worn better coloured pants so the scab would look less like a gangrenous bubo.
|Lunar Eclipse||April 12, 2014, 3:10 pm|
|As some of you may or may not know this coming Monday morning North America (which is where I'm located, not to put too fine a point on it) will be treated to a lunar eclipse. I've never seen one with my own two eyes before; I would love to. I have seen two lunar halos and they were awesome and, to me, awe-inspiring. Have any of you fine folks here witnessed any celestial happenings such as this? Another thing I've yet to witness is a meteor shower - that would also be badass.|

|After a week of putting up with this agonizingly slow, dying external hard drive, I moved all of the irreplaceable shit off of it and onto a new drive. It was like watching my computer army crawl a mile through a field of sludge when it was pulling stuff off there.|

|Ranting, raving, venting (emo loser thread)||April 8, 2014, 2:05 pm|
I don't want to derail the 'Reasons not to tip' thread, so I'm making this a blog instead.
I'm not exactly satisfied with what's going on here. Corruption and bribery is pretty much legalized, and the mainstream media acts like it's perfectly normal to tip the scale of elections with loads of cash and that we shouldn't be complaining about people like the Koch brothers. Employment opportunities already suck and are only getting worse, costs of education are through the roof, and police brutality continues mostly unscathed (paid leave is NOT justice).
I haven't gone to any post-secondary education yet, as I'm unsure of what I'd study and don't want to accrue piles of debt, especially if my degree doesn't actually help in getting jobs when there's so little opportunity out there anyway.
The only jobs I've managed to get so far is fast food (the manager actually offered the job to me, I didn't pursue it beyond taking the offer), and shelf stocking only because they were already short on people. The fast food place shut down because a local university bought it and tore it down to make room for more student housing, and the grocery store tossed me aside at the last minute. They needed the help, but not so badly as to keep me past initial probation.
Australia seems like a nice place, because they speak English, seem to give a damn about laborers, and have a warm climate. I grew up in Idaho (though currently reside in Ohio), so I actually prefer warm climates. Also, it'd give me an excuse to spell properly (labour instead of labor, etc.).

The US is kinda almost commonwealth, but we rejected the crown early on and inverted many practices, so we're technically not.
The best I could hope for is a work and holiday visa. What am I to do?

Trying to learn Blender is a little bit like sticking your brain in a blender.
If only I still had a copy of 3dsMax 6 or 7 from college.
|production and guitar thoughts||April 2, 2014, 9:23 pm|
I've been playing guitar for about 10 years now, and I've never been able to progress too far. But that's fine, because it inspired me to creatively overcome my limitations (double-jointed wrists give me pain when I make 3-finger chords, and I can't play leads for shit) through sound manipulation.
When a guitarist will record a track for an album, it's normally a guitar>amp>mic>mixing board deal. Being a hardcore punk fan, that's what I've heard for over a decade.
Problem with me is that I find that boring. When I was in school for recording, I could never get a sound that I liked from microphones. I always felt a disconnect from the sound- the microphone being the middleman.
Recently, I bought a Alesis io2 USB interface and torrented FL Studio 10. After a few afternoons fucking around, I managed to record a few tracks directly into the program. After layering fuzz and distortion on top of the clean master track, I managed to get a horrifically dirty, mangled guitar sound. For an idea, you can listen to "Wish" Nine Inch Nails- the initial guitar parts during the verse were what I A/B'd with my signal.
I also made the decision to not look for a drummer for the band I'm putting together, but to use a drum machine for a relentless, pounding sound. Think Big Black meets early NIN meets Agent Orange. It's gonna be killer.
|Shit just hit my fan.||April 2, 2014, 6:53 pm|
I just witnessed a "domestic dispute" between my mother and my father.
Let us just say that it ended violently, to the point where my dad sent an entire table into my mothers face.
So after phoning the police and an ambulance, my dad was taken away and my mother sent to the hospital. Problem is my sister (A dirty lying little bitch) caused all of this by claiming my mother hit her (When in reality my mother did not).
So after all the fucked up turns of events, my sister (or rather my dad) has split the entire family up.
This is the worst thing to ever happen to me, my mother... Fuck, everybody (in my family)!
There was just so much fucking blood! He threw a table at her which broke her nose, and he just hit her again!
I don't even know what or why a man would do such a thing, I just don't even want to see him or my sister ever again.
