There are many misconceptions in society that I've observed. Here's an incomplete list of them so far:

  • You cannot function in life without a cell phone, and they make you a better driver too!
  • Morals are achieved only through religion.
  • "R-O-L-A-I-D-S" spells relief.
  • Actors are important people. So are athletes.
  • Women can do anything men can do, but better.
  • Wearing your hat sideways makes you look cool.
  • Accelerating quickly in a car is impressive. And when you turn your bass up so it rumbles the entire neighborhood, everyone will think you're a stud.
  • If you're bald, or balding, wear a hat. Nobody will ever notice.
  • Watching television is productive, and time well spent.
  • Humans are the smartest and most advanced species in existance.
  • Marijuana is destructive to society.
  • Video games are for children.
  • Men have the choice whether or not to father a child.
  • Drug addiction is a disease.
  • Eating only one meal a day is healthier.
  • People really like hearing all about your kids, and especially your grandkids.
  • Condoms are 100% effective.
  • Success is measured by the size of bank accounts.
  • People care about Demi Moore.
  • All americans are power hungry.
  • Pennies are worthless.
  • Breast size is important.
  • Diet soda is healthy.
  • Valentine's Day is romantic.
  • Only geeks watch Star Trek.
  • Weddings are examples of money well spent.
  • Keanu Reeves is a bad actor.
  • Britney Spears is smart.
  • Gay people are confused.
  • Money isn't important to women.
  • Looks aren't important to men.
  • Having kids is a noble act.
  • There are plenty of good reasons for a man to get married.
  • If you feel bad, you should be medicated.
  • You need credit cards.
  • You will never get an STD, that sort of thing only happens to other people.
  • Plants can't feel pain.
  • Rap isn't music, and it takes no talent.
  • Smoking is attractive.
  • Everyone is over-worked and under-paid.
  • The world is a wonderful place.

Kitty Crack

Have you ever given a cat some catnip just to watch him/her get excited? It's like waving a pizza over someone who just smoked three pounds of weed. The eyes go crossed with joy. They immediately become vocal and run around in circles like a crazed squirrel. If only a hot looking chick would come at me with so much determination...

So you put it down in a tiny pile, and they immediately begin snorting it. Not long after, the sneezing starts. This is when their legs go numb and they fall down. All they can do at this point is roll around on the floor like a drunk with no legs. Such joy, such ecstasy. And all I can think is.... "Do they make Human-nip? They should! I should invent it and sell it on the street. Dude, I could be rich! I'm sitting on a goldmine."

But then I think about how I always call catnip "kitty crack". And let's face it.... drugs are bad. Just say "no".

the road to nowhere is long
winding this way and that
through small towns and big cities
deep valleys and tall peaks
through vast deserts unexplored
and the cold dark depths of the sea
i may have seen a million sights
and met a friend or two
but passing by so quickly
makes it hard to take it all in
i must reach the rising sun
before it sets once more
turning my world to darkness
I will never know content
for i am going nowhere
and time is not my friend

Minutes ago, I secured three tickets to see Paul McCartney on November 3rd in Seattle. After a half-hour of frustration not being able to get through online, I finally did. Lower level, center-stage tickets for McCartney... it doesn't get better than that. Now I just have to wait for November...

Flicks: Part 2

I watched Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life last night... what a strange show that is. I can't honestly decide if I think it was better or worse than the first one, but I am confident in saying they both could have been much better. Is it bad that the thing I enjoy about the series most is the british accent? It doesn't just turn me on, it also happens to come from someone who resembles Angelina Jolie. That's hot stuff right there. I suppose I'm like most people. Women always love guys with accents too, don't they? It's all about the accent.

Star Trek: Generations is a classic. I just watched it again tonight.

"They say time is the fire in which we burn."

(coincidentally, also delivered in great british style by the great Malcolm McDowell).

Oh, and if anyone can lead me to the Nexus, it would be much appreciated. Or... a holodeck. Nexus or holodeck, either one would be a dream come true.

Tonight I am blind-sided by sadness. It snuck up on me with a covert agenda. Like a blow to the back of my head, a wave of disarray now lies beneath my thoughts. Those feelings of lonliness and isolation remain unhealed. Can there really be a match for me out there in existance? A soul as fucked up as my own? Or does the possibility dance in front of me, taunting and teasing with such great cruelty? If we are truly unique among ourselves, then there is no absolute equal for anyone. If everyone is different, there can be no such thing as a soulmate. With that point of view, what is the point of anything? Maybe love is an abstract idea created to give ourselves meaning to our insignificant little lives. Maybe it was made up. Maybe love is only a word that is raped and abused all too often. And maybe it has been so violated, it's been drained of its meaning. Maybe, just maybe, we are wrong.

Yet still, I love the idea of love.

Weekend Flicks

One of the best mind-fuck movies that nobody's overly familiar with? ... Strange Days. I really love this movie. I just pulled my DVD out and watched it again this evening. Everytime I do, it seems to get better and more intense. An interesting fact about the movie is that it was conceived and written by James Cameron. He's awesome. I totally recommend giving it a view when you're in the mood for a trip.

I also watched The 6th Day today. It's another interesting, thought-provoking flick. It deals with the issue of cloning. As far as Schwarzennegger flicks, it's not the quality of True Lies or Predator, but much better than Collateral Damage.

Sideways is a great show. A bit odd in places, and not what I expected, but still great. That one deals with obsession, confusion, depression, acceptance and learning to break free of the prison in your mind.

Alien vs. Predator, on the other hand, was just bad. I highly enjoy both series, but this film should have been something special. The concept was there. The budget was there. It was carried out horribly. I might have still somewhat enjoyed it had there not been so many problems with details and flaws in the storyline(s). It pains me to imagine the film that should have been, and the fact that it will never be seen.

The Move

The move will most likely be pushed back to late August or early September. After looking into the details with a stronger magnification, I found the rabbit hole goes even deeper than originally thought. I'd like to take a couple extra months to save up much more money. Tension in the workplace has slightly loosened its choke-hold. I have explained the situation to Jen. I have a few ideas of possible roommates that would take that trip. In the meantime, I'm just going to work, collecting paychecks and watching finances. We'll see where the water flows...

standing on this shore
staring out into the horizon
the sun rises once more
spilling reddish light all over me
if only the sand were hope
i would offer it to the sea
yet, the fury of waves would deny me
washing my insignificant dreams back
will the sun leave me tonight
never to return again
running away like so many do
i am here on this island of existance
and i am lost
