Okay. Everybody’s entitled to their opinion, but I just don’t get why some people are anti-Facebook and are Twitter addicts instead. These same people claim that it’s “too busy” and that they “don’t have time for that shit.” Really?
So I got bored and decided to mix a bunch of indietronica songs using only Traktor Pro software.
1. Gotye feat. Kimbra – Somebody That I Used To Know (Bastian Van Shield Remix)
2. David Bowie – Let’s Dance (SIMØNE Remix)
3. Foster The People – Don’t Stop (Oliver Remix)
4. Hot Chip – Flutes (Cryptonites Edit)
5. Dragonette – Let It Go (The Knocks Remix)
6. Empire Of The Sun – Walking On A Dream (Extended Mix)
7. Holy Ghost! – Wait & See (Kris Menace Vocal Reinterpretation)
8. Chromeo – Don’t Turn The Lights On
9. Mayer Hawthorne – A Long Time (Chromeo Remix)
10. Prince – U Got The Look (Anthony Atcherley Remix)

Okay. So check this out. We came up with this idea for a poster to place at welding labs in schools to stress the importance of wearing protective gear while welding. Check it out and let me know what you think. The guy we presented this to said, and I quote, “It’s too Wall Street, too sophisticated. Welders don’t read (I think he meant that they aren’t going to take the time to look closely at it, but okay, that could also be taken as they don’t read).” All of us here in our department loved it. I witnessed him tear the work down in a matter of seconds.
Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
Put up a fight or else.
You won’t get anything out of life if you don’t work hard. I am slowly learning that each passing day. It feels great to work hard and then look back at the fruits of your labor and be proud of what you’ve done. Plus, working hard gives you legitimate bragging rights.
Avoid avoiding. Avoiding something doesn’t let you move forward. And if there’s no forward movement in your life, you might as well be dead.
You know how parents often instill in you not to talk to strangers as a kid? They’re right. As a kid that’s understandable. But try it as an adult. Sure, I understand how someone would be anxious about doing it. But just try it. What’s the worst that can happen? You get shot in the face or stabbed in eye? Or you get looked at funny? Ok, the former is fucking scary, so if the person looks like a psychopath that kills, I would avoid doing it. But if they don’t, talk to them. Making friends with strangers can be cool. Friends, okay? There’s nothing wrong with having friends.
Hey. It’s me again.
The battery on my iPhone is about to die, and my internal battery is, too. I haven’t gotten a good night’s sleep in days, but that’s been on purpose. The last thing I want to do right now is sleep. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?
I am sitting at a sports bar yawning my ass off. Not good. I need to sleep.
Being sober has its perks. You get to accurately observe the actions of others around you that are inebriated. And believe me when I say that many of them act absolutely ridiculous. Things are said that normally wouldn’t be said. Things are done that normally wouldn’t be done. People that normally interact with one another start interacting. There’s probably not much room for a dull moment if you work in this industry.
It’s nice to get some fresh air, even if it’s polluted with unwanted noise. Being enclosed within 4 walls gets old really quick, let me tell you. Anyway, I am rambling as usual. I tend to do that more often when I run on low sleep.
It’s time to head home and finally sleep.
Hi. I’m back. So today was a cool day.
I learned that nothing beats a good conversation. Fuck TV. Fuck the Internet. Fuck movies. Fuck music. I’d gladly set all that aside for conversations (face-to-face or phone). Technology, while sometimes bringing people together, kinda gets in the way sometimes, too. It took far too long to come to this realization, but I’m glad I did. I feel like I’ve been living under a rock for many years in the sense that I never took the time to talk to people. it’s amazing what you can learn when you actually make the time to do this. It’s so much easier to pick up a phone or drive somewhere and meet somebody in person.
I also think I’m finally getting this listening thing down better. I don’t know why I found it so hard to do before. All you have to do is… listen. Silence the responses in your head and… listen. It’s that easy.
I’m also finding myself wanting to sleep less and less. It’s kicking my ass in the mornings, but I am not going to bed any earlier than 2:00 am or so. I love the night. I guess it’s because I have to devote so much time in my day to working that I want to make up for lost time at night, you know? I don’t know. I wish there were 48 hours in a day or something. 8 to work, 12 to sleep, and the rest to use however you want. Maybe someday it’ll happen.
Ahh, there are so many good TV shows right now it’s not even funny. I’m going to have to fire up a spreadsheet in Google Docs to be able to keep up with them all because it’s gotten out of hand. If I don’t plan my recordings in time (I should probably just have the DVR record the series, right?), I end up not recording the shows that air in the evening. It happened to me tonight. I didn’t make the time on Tuesday night to look a day ahead, so Wednesday night came around and I ended up not recording all the great shows that aired. Bah!
I haven’t written anything in a while. This WordPress was practically abandoned for years. But now I think I’m ready to start writing in it again. I am ready to start expressing myself the way I should have for years now.
I am currently experiencing a life change that is going to allow me to grow as a person but that hurts like a motherfucker. You can imagine what that life change is. And if not, oh well. I think I’ve hinted at it.
Anyway, see, I already lost this tab. Damnit. I have too many of them open. Each individual one is fighting for my attention and screaming out, “Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!”
See? I just did it again. Haha. Wow. Twice in one post. Anyway, I’ve gotta focus on hammering this out. I need to just sit here and type until my fingers fall off. Alright, not exactly that much, but you catch my drift.
So yeah, back to that life change I started talking about earlier. I can’t help but share what it is. Nah, I’m not going to just yet. I don’t think I’m quite ready for that yet. I will say this, though. I’ve entered a new chapter in my life. It’s one that I should have entered a long time ago and taken the initiative to conquer prior to jumping into anything serious. I’m terrified. I don’t know where I’m going to end up, but I have to be brave.
More to come later on.
