I just wanted to make this post to say that I no longer agree with the majority of rants made in this journal. I no longer wish to be an edgy anarchist logic-minded pragmatic libertarian rational misogynist creepy neckbeard Nice Guy. I'm done with all that.

I no longer hold any of the opinions that I used to. I apologize to anyone I've offended with this journal and I am now embarrassed by the statements I made in the past.

12:50 pm - Star Trek pics
In honor of Simron doing her law school thing and moving to Viet Nam I’m posting the Star Trek pictures I have on my computer. I’m hope I’m not outing her as a Star Trek fan.

There’s 37 pics and some probably aren’t safe for work.

I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right,
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh,
even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you're not around,
and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you,
not even close
not even a little bit
not even at all.

You know in the past I blamed my exes for pretty much everything that had gone wrong in the relationships. But I have come to realize that I messed up a lot and I really deserve the blame. I have been very lucky to date the girls that I have. I look back on my behavior and I can see now how badly I acted. It's hard to blame any of those girls for much anymore.

So last night after the Mickey Avalon show I got knocked down by some drunk guy and kicked while I was down. Aparently the girl I was walking with was his girlfriend. Things got way worse from there. I'm too ashamed to describe it. Anyway by the end of the night I was so upset and frustrated I was shaking. I just keep playing the moment over in my head. I wanted to scream. So I decided to spend the night at a whore house and take out all my frustration on some poor unsuspecting hooker. It still wasn't enough. Now I'm back home and I've taken a sedative to put me to sleep. Hopefully things aren't as bad as they feel right now.

At least it was a good show and I had a lot of fun until the moment I got beat up by some random drunk dude.

I'm a little happier with this edition but then again I'm pretty drunk. That means there's sure to be grammatical and spelling errors all over it. I made it bigger because I really wanted to show off the pictures. So beware. Please let me know if it's too big.

Hey there. Just trying to get back in this comic blogging thing again. As you can tell I'm a bit rusty. I expect it will be touch and go for a while. I ran in to some issues with the sizing :(

7:45 am - So long and thanks for the fish
In a few hours I will be boarding a flight to take me to my new home in Australia. Right now, I can't really get in to my reasons for leaving. But instead I thought I would post a song by Australian Colin Hay, the front man from Men At Work.

The first time I heard this song was on a Scrubs episode in which it was presented in broadway musical format. I had just assumed the they used a song from a musical. Then I heard Hay's version and I was really impressed with the creators of Scrubs. They took an acoustic guitar song and made it in to a really good musical number.

The words of the song really reached me. It's a strange concept: to be waiting for your real life to begin. I think, if you're not careful, it's easy to get in to that mindset. You can just feel like you're doing what you have to in life now and then later on you will be doing what you want to. There's a lot of ways I think the song can be interpreted. I love that line "and suddenly, nothing happened."

Waiting For My Real Life To Begin - Colin Hay

By the way, if you are a Scrubs fan you will probably recognize the open chords of the song as the backround music in the show that precedes J.D.'s reflective inner monologues that usually occur at the end of the each episode. Also you probably remember that one episode where Colin Hay guest starred. In that episode he sang "Overkill" and it was awesome.

I was looking up the sample used in “Humdrum Town” and the google suggestions got me curious about the other songs.

The first and only one I looked in to was “Best I Ever Had” which produced this WTF video:

I laughed so hard when I noticed that the guy rapping was Jimmy Hussein Brooks. lol forever.

Also I’m trying to omegle. I just started but I need to be cleverer.

So apparently it takes 450 mg of Wellbutrin and buckets of caffeine to make me feel normal. Good to know.

10:23 pm - The wisdom of Danny Tanner
One trend I notice about growing up is that your mind begins to settle. Your opinions become more tempered. Your views more moderate.

Of course I hate this.

I’ve always seen how adults tend to build their worldview upon corny beliefs that are not applicable in real life. These beliefs are mostly what happens when myth becomes common sense. It’s hard to explain exactly what I’m talking about here. It’s something I refer to as “The Wisdom of Danny Tanner.”

You know how in family sitcoms, the episode will end in some moral being learned and someone, usually a parent, will have some soliloquy about the lesson at hand. During that scene cheesy meandering piano notes will be plunked in the back round. These lessons are always completely useless in real life and yet you would be surprised at how many real life people hold them to be true.

As I’ve said before common sense is my enemy. Common sense just means believing the same thing that everyone else does. It is lazy thinking. If you rely on common sense then you are letting someone else do your thinking for you. Most everything I believe is opposed to common sense.

Next time you are giving your opinion on something or giving advice to someone, imagine how well your words would fit set against that corny sitcom end scene music. If it sounds right at home then you are probably wrong and you should think more critically about the subject.

But of course the real lesson here is Be Yourself.

10:00 pm - LJ
Since creating my LJ about nine years ago, I haven't really edited my profile or interests list at all. The tag line for it reads "Random whinings of a confused and tormented 20-something." In 8 months that will no longer be accurate.

I can't stand to go back and read my old entries because I am way too embarrassed by them. But I suppose if I had think of theme to attach to the first couple years of my LJ it would be about a guy trying to understand why the world works the way it does and why he doesn't fit in it. After a while I got tired of posting my opinions on things and just got tired of posting in general. My LJ became much more superficial and empty. These days it's rare if I post more than once a month.

I always tell myself I'm gonna get back in to it. That I'll toughen up and be able handle criticism and people disagreeing with me. And I don't see why I shouldn't. I think I will start posting more frequently and candidly now but I think my postings will come from a different point of view than they used to. It makes sense considering that I'm a different person now. A lot of my musings and opinions are now centered around being an adult and what that means. I can see my posts being more about being a grown up rather than growing up. I think it's worth the experiment to see how that goes.

Another reason for my wanting to get back in to LJ is that facebook and twitter suck.

Please tell me what you think of this video. I love it because it is adorable but I hate it because I am neither cute nor young nor hip nor talented nor creative nor in love.

8:49 pm - I heart the 00s
I’ve decided to make a challenging playlist this time. Since we are nearing the end of the decade I’ve compile a list of the top ten best albums of the 00s.

As an added challenge I have done the minimal amount of research for this list and just going off from my memory. I’m doing this because anyone can just look up the charts and album release dates of the last ten years and write some commentary on it. In fact, I’m sure plenty of people already are so what would be the point in adding another one? Does anyone wanna read some made up bullshit for the millionth time about how 9-11 changed the direction of music?

Another reason for doing this is that it’s more organic and hopefully I’ll be providing a less clinical more personal, ground-level perspective on the decade. Now what makes this even more difficult is the fact that I spent the last ten years doing a hell of a lot of drugs and alcohol. The memories of the decade are pretty fuzzy for me. To be honest I actually remember very little of the 00s which means there will probably be a lot of factual errors on this list.

Edit: This turned out to be waaay wordier than I expected. So in addition to the one song posted with every entry I’m including bonus songs to try to compensate for the insane rambling.

So uh, with that, let’s attempt this musical retrospective of the decade with no name.
