It has come to my attention that I too am a comic genius. Just like Andy Kaufman, I tell jokes that only I get.
Oh, and for some reason, my counter display has changed. I didn’t alter the code or anything….

Tonker sent me this link, BOBO would be proud!

Yes, the SideKick has purchased himself a vid cam, a nice one too.
You know what this means?
Actually, no. What it does mean, among other things, is that I can take pics of my models and post them on the page. This is a good thing.
It also means that I have to get my butt in gear and finish my models properly.

We had an interesting “discussion” today about the Baby boomers and how they’re all retiring in about 10 minutes.
The central theme was this, “Some of them weren’t able to save the money they needed to get into a retirement home, so they’re asking the government for help”.
The main person heading the “discussion” couldn’t understand how someone could work 30 years and not save enough money for retirement.
This person stated that if they just planned ahead then they would have been fine, and she blamed the consumerist attitude for the fact that people are not saving money(something this person also fails of).
This would be a sound argument if it wasn’t for one small detail, the future is uncertain at the best of times.
You can’t plan for EVERYTHING that will happen in your life.
Today, you’re making $50,000/year(after taxes), you live in a nice house(not too much, just enough), you have a lovely other(also making $50000/year), and your expecting your first child any day now, and putting a little something away for the future.
Tomorrow, you’ve come down with the plague (a little much, but you get the idea) and that costs $1000/week for treatments, of which the government is paying $100/week. Your other (loving person) has to hire a nanny to take care of the children(oh, did I mention that you have another?) because you’re out of work. But, you do get better, 4 years later (plague is really nasty), and decide to enter the working force. Problem is, you’re out of date, and can’t get the job that pays the big bucks. But hey, it’s something.
Then your other dies, and you have two kids, a bad paying job, a mortgage and that little something that you’ve been putting away, gone.
Mind you, by the same token, you could win the lottery tomorrow and never have to worry about money again. You just never know.
This might seem a little extreme, but think of the economy in the last 30 years. Hasn’t always been a bed of roses, has it?
And we tried to explain it to this person, using every example we could, and this person still stood fast and stated that you can plan for anything. If something doesn’t work out, then cut out something else in your life ot make up for it.
I really hope this person does well in life, I’d hate to see it all fall apart for this person, because they wouldn’t know how to handle it.

Well, it seems that all the friends that I don’t talk to enough (some for years) don’t hate me. This is a good thing!
I’m making more and more plans to see people I haven’t seen in….ages…ages..
And it looks like I’m going to two anime cons this year, Anime North in May and Anime Expo in July. Anime North should sort of be relaxing since I’m not really going to buy anything, or at least much ^_^
But they have a MechYard wars thing that I REALLY want to try…
Plus I’ll get an idea of what other people think of my video(if it ever gets done).

According to Direct Domain (where I got my domain name), my record for the most hits in one day is: 1768! And that was yesterday.
Seems now that I’m averaging more than 1000 hits/day. Hell, maybe one of those people might actually VIEW my page!
Imagine that! A hit where my page is viewed, not just accessed by a search engine!
Will wonders never cease….

For some reason I have decided to make a schedule of the weight of weights that I will be using in my workouts.
In a nutshell, I’ll be adding 5 pounds to everything that I left every two weeks, except for bench press which will be 10 pounds/2 weeks.
Monday (feb 26) is the first time I add weight, and since I work out every two days, I’ll tell you Thursday how it all goes.
If this page doesn’t get updated on the 1st of March, fear the worst.

Since I started working out, I’ve noticed that I get more and more pimples on my chest and arms.
I tell ya, some days it’s like playing with bubblewrap…

After visiting a large HMV and seeing their new ‘Electronica’ section, I was asked by a friend what the difference between ‘Electronica’ and ‘Industrial’ were. The only answer that I could give him was this:
They are both electronic based music, but ‘Electronica’ is more beat driven, and Industrial…wasn’t.
OK, so it wasn’t the best thing to say, but it was the only thing I could think of.
After thinking about it for awhile, I came upon a better idea.
In terms of the music industry, ‘Electronica’ has replaced ‘Dance’, and for that matter, ‘Alternative’ is stuff your parents won’t listen to, ‘Metal ‘ is metal, ‘Rock’ is stuff your parents might listen to, ‘Classical’ is stuff my friends that try to look smart listen to(you know who you are), ‘Country’ is where all the pretty girls are, and everything else is put there for a lack of a better title.
In all honesty, I couldn’t tell you what the differences between Industrial and Electronic music are, I just know what I think Industrial is and isn’t. I guess you could buy a bunch of different CDs and find out for yourself.
Since they don’t have an Industrial section in HMV, I’ll give you a short list of what I think of when I think Industrial music:
# Einstürzende Neubauten
# Pigface
# Skinny Puppy
# Noise Unit
# Laibach
# Kraftwerk(which, oddly, I found in the Electronica section)
# Front 242
# Front Line Assembly
# Leæther Strip
Most of these you will find in the Alternative section of record stores, except those that know a little better.
On another odd note, alot of the stuff that I consider Industrial is from Germany…go fig.

Having just watched MI2, Blade Runner and Tron this weekend, it has occurred to me the that present isn’t as cool as it should be.
No flying cars, no replicants, no artificial intelligence, nothing.
I don’t know who’s responsible for this, but I’ll find them, and they’ll pay.
End of Line

Oh, and it took a week of writing e-mails to get the tech support people to admit that the ‘hits’ on my website could also result in search engine requests.
This would explain that of the 700+ people that ‘visit’ my site daily, only 7 people have written in the guestbook. And I know them all.
