Long time coming.

Dec. 9th, 2010 | h:05m::07 pm

So I all but forgot about my LJ.

It's been a long time and what a fucking trip it is reading through my old posts.

So many of life's adventures I have forgotten.

For those that don't know, but care, I left memphis last year to find a better home, and i think I've found it.

Everything is new. Everything is difficult. Everything is awesome.

Say hello if you are reading this.

Wearables!

Nov. 1st, 2007 | h:12m::06 pm

I'm working on a wearable computing project, and I'm looking for others who might want to help, or follow along. I'm interested in using Linux on OTSH (off the shelf hardware aka. cheap) like an old laptop,etc. Interfacing (for now) with my cell phone, and headset using bluetooth.

Please give me your input!

Current work/design/brainstorming blog is at:

I'm building a wearable and REALLY need feedback/ideas/voices of experience and reason.

All is well, I'm with the love of my life, living in a nice house near U of M.

Absent Minded

May. 21st, 2007 | h:01m::47 pm

It seems like i never have the time to post on any of the gazillion blogs that I have. Anyone have tips for balancing work/play/laziness/etc?

I'm also looking for a place in memphis, so if anyone has a place for rent, or knows of one, let me know. I'd perfer a house, but an apt is OK if I can be a lil noisy. I'm working in olive branch, so the closer the better, but i'll make exceptions for great deals.

Anyone on here still have my almost dormant account friended?

email me, meretenacity@gmail.com Lets catch up.

Sure is lonely here.

Been away from the online world for awhile and it has done me good, and some bad, but mostly good... As always I'm always interested in meeting cool people from the memphis area. I live in midtown and fucking love it. Escape from the 'brubs while you still can! Send me a message or IM me if you want, and I _know_ you want to.

p.s. Does anyone still ready this horrid thing?

QUESTION:
All the artists and friends out there:
I have a good friend who paints, and is looking to begin selling some of her work. What are the best channels to go thru, both online, and in the community (i'm in memphis) for buying and selling canvas-based painitng in an abstract style?

Elevator goes up.

The door slides against metal as it opens, it's sound setting me on edge.

From the parting of the steel curtians I am greeted by the last thing I ever see.

I always liked the taste of brushed stainless.

Hey all you poor fuckers stuck reading my entries.

I got some new shit going on.

And you know nothing about it.

Thats right, if you really wanted to fucking know,
you would be right here making it happen.

But you are not.

So this is all you get.

Poor you.

Boo-fucking-hoo, poor fucking you.

Go mourn the loss of your own life for a minute.

Then go outside, yes, yes you, with the pasty skin and the flaccid emo patina, you go.

music: Various stevie wonder

With a flick of the wrist
the air comes alive
the strumming drumming rythem
builds, measures twice and
cuts a rug

Traded up to a higher
plane,
the wild plain old young
and away, to say
things upon
the surfaces on
which we play

Suffering for suffarage
these songs of slavery
is all i ever hear
must one imprision emotion
to esxape emotional imprisonment?

All is but a question
without judgement, only bias
and thrugh clear eyes and
muddy soul

The feel of freedom
is tempoary, grasping
fleeting.
And without basis,
what does it mean today
i sit with a smile
on one side
and a grin on the other.

Jacks smirking revenge
is what she wants
here is your reason
tis the season
for love.

Insiders stay out, outsiders stay in,
and when someone looses noone wins.

I fell into the fad, as I usually don't and I have nothing of any importance to write about whatsoever because I just don't feel the need to express myself here right at this moment.

The snow, unique, beautiful, will die at the warmpth of my hand, pooling and slowly dribbling away.
The branches, passive, accepting, are weighed down, are made regal, made precious, with the delicate ice crown.
The invisible currents of the sky, the whisps of air, the wind of change, the direction of the whim of the flake, revealed in the chaos of the flailing fall of snowflakes.

The tremendous weight of this that falls silently, will collapse buildings, snap trees in half, and render the city a town once again.

This weight is a metaphorical one that i carry selfishly, under the guise of chivalry.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 137.
3. Find the eleventh sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you (unless it only has 95 pages or is a fucking dictionary!).

"A year or so earlier I had been to the Sky River Rock Festival in rural Washington, where a dozen stone-broke freaks from the Seattle Liberation Front had assembled a sound system that carried every small note of an acoustic guitar- even a cough or the sound of a boot dropping on the stage- to half deaf acid victims huddled under bushes half a mile away."

Feb. 3rd, 2006 | h:05m::05 pm

I think communication is the final frontier.

I percieve most of all my problems, and those of the world at large to be related directly or indirectly to communication (or lack there of.) Yo illustrate my point i will give a few examples;

Guy calls girl. Girl is not interested. Girl doesn't answer phone at all (or worse yet, answers and gives semi-plausable excuse why she can't talk.) Guy thinks she is busy, or otherwise occupied or that she, like many people, just doesn't like to answer/talk on the phone. Girl thinks she has given him a clear message to sod off and not call, and thinks guy is psycho for calling still. A common variation is when a guy hits on a girl, and being afraid to hurt his feelings, tries being nice and just kind of hinting or ignoring the hit but continuing to talk to him.

And the list could go on forever...

So please, say what you feel. Be considerate, but blunt if in doubt.

Thank you.

(the preceding is a general rant, not aimed at anyone.)
