Cranky Geeks
Cranky Geeks runs a series of definitions during the breaks. So the first definition might be iPod, the second might be podcast and the third might be podcatcher. It's annoying, just like reading a photo caption that goes on and on like this one.



A Memorable Memorial Day
Too many people forget just why we celebrate Memorial Day here in the States. Memorial Day is a day to remember and celebrate the best and the brightest among us who gave their lives and yielded their freedom so that we could have our lives and freedom. Sadly, most people this year just looked to this date as the official release of urchins from concentration camps public screwls and marks the beginning of summer.

I celebrated this Memorial Day by sitting on my ass and not doing a damned thing.

Well, that's not entirely true. I did go to the park and walk around for a couple of hours enjoying the ever-living shit out of my iPod Shuffle. I did a lot of brainstorming on many writing projects walking around. I now know what my next large purchase will be: a MacBook.

I long to have a laptop so that I can go write in remote locations and get away from my desk. Yes, it doesn't make a lot of sense right now as all I ever do is work, but those moments that you can get away you cherish, and by God you want a laptop.

And I refuse to settle for anything less then a MacBook. Why? Because in my experience, Leopard offers me a platform that is extremely stable, simple to navigate, speeds up my workflow, supports all of my apps and is nice and pretty to boot. One of these days I'm going to have to revisit my Using miniMax0r post--say at the one year mark--and address some of the complaints that I have. They are minor, but they are aggravations and interruptions to workflow. If enough voices speak out, perhaps some of these issues will get addressed.



I LOVE what you are thinking...and it's WONDERFULY twisted!
I LOVE what you are thinking...and it's wonderfully twisted.



Of making many books there is no end and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
So the university that I went to offers this program called academic bankruptcy. It's where they take all of your previous work at the institution and erase it from you record...kinda. The courses still show up, but not your grades and your GPA goes back to 0.0 You have to start from the beginning and can only do this once in your career, but it's a last chance for fuck-ups like me. I'll need to schedule and appointment and take the time off to make it, but I think that if I were to do this, I could then go to the community college just down the street (new shiny MacBook in hand) and take out the GERs (that's General Education Reguirments for those of you in Juanita). This would allow me to go someone a bit easier and more importantly, cheaper to get those filters out of the way. This would also provide me with an excuse to take some photog classes at said institution as the university doesn't offer any. (Fucking Communist, Nazi bastards!)

It's quite funny. Today I was reminiscing with whester about those early college classes. I took American Lit with a certain teacher because I had her for Freshman Comp. She and I had a blast in Freshman Comp as she said that she had never had a class as outrageous as that one, though to be fair, there was a second joker in the class to help pull the slack for me.

I'll never forget when I turned in my first paper: it was eight pages long! She very patiently took me aside, told me I had great ideas and an excellent conversational tone, but needed to learn to condense. In hindsight, the irony is that was before I wrote for either The Exponent or started blogging. (My first blog entry was January 29, 2005; I took Freshman Comp in the fall of 2002.)

But back to American Lit. That semester I was living in the dorm and was all burnt out. I would write both my code and papers an hour before they were do. I pulled my Lit teacher aside and told her "I'm not looking for pity or sympathy, but I thought you ought to know that 'm not really reading in here and I'm writing my essays an hour before they are do without reading the material." I got an "A" on all of my essays that semester as I recall.

Maybe I could get involved with the school paper after I got the GERs knocked out. There's a lot I could do better the second time around because a) I'd already known/seen the material and b) I know what to expect from college. I could finally relax and have fun. Who knows what networking opportunities lie in store.



Hmmmmm....there's cheese at the end of this maze
Hmmmmm....There's cheese at the end of this maze!



I've told several of you that all of the sudden there'd be a lot of writing come out onf nowhere from me and I mean it. I've got several writing projects that I'm involved with; currently there are two active scripts Re'eh and another project that I'm working with an International (UK + US) team that I'm not ready to announce publicly. I have a few posts stored up that I will be releasing in the coming days, some of which I think that you my ever patient and faithful readership will enjoy. Though I can't talk about it now, there will be an exclusive sneak peak of a music video I had the pleasure to be a part of January coming to this blog the first part of June.

Thanks to Friends List filtering, I will be self-publishing a novella and a novel exclusively on Live Journal. The novella will be a narrative of my mission trip to Guatemala seven years ago; the novel is what some of you old timers would remember under the title A Time to Fight. If you want to be a part of either of these (and I'll announce this again before publishing either one which will be done serially) you must have a Live Journal account and will need to leave me a comment asking to be added to either/both. Let me re-iterate this for those of you in Juanita: if you want to read A Time to Fight in it's virgin run you need a Live Journal account. This will not be available via Xanga. At this time, I am not announcing a time frame for either publication. Leave a comment somewhere on schpydurx if you want to be part of this action.

I've always thought that there is a blogging season that runs from sometime mid-to late spring and continues to the holidays; it looks like my season is just around the corner.

Outside of that last picture, which I can only describe as a spreading red stain on the dress of humanity(TM melancthe) I really enjoyed the incorporation of photos & captions to what would certainly be one of your very dry and meandering posts.

There are a few items I would like to address: I appreciate your level of inactivity specifically for the Memorial Day weekend. How very thoughtful for you to explain it so verbosely, then make a point by ending it with your thoughtlessness. Fuck you very much.

You long to have a laptop. My ass bleeds for you. You had a laptop that you sold to snapper521 so you could buy your mini. I don't really care *what* you do, as long as you either stop whining about it, or make up your fucking mind. Thanks!

I don't know that old dude in the car. Does he have gas? Do you have gas? Is having gas wonderfully twisted? Speaking of twisted, I know my lower intestines feel like they just knot right up when I have a bout of gas!

What's "photog?"

Congratulations on considering future possibilities of thinking about possibly attending school again, sometime in the future.

Wow dude. Your first entry was worse than mine. Well done!

In that photo of house. I want to see her maze.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR SEASON IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! I CAN'T WAIT!

I'm sorry that you're too stupid to recognize that is a smile from a Dark Knightposter. Note the quote in the caption.

What I also find amusing is your continuance to brownnose melancthe. Are you that infatuated with her? Jesus Christ, keep it in your pants. I'm sick and tired of you looking like a three year old that was just given a bowl of chocolate ice cream. Keep this up and there will be consequences.

Would you have preferred that I went around in sackcloth and ash that day instead of embracing the freedom and liberty that so many had died for? I say FUCK YOU!

You had a laptop that you sold to snapper521 so you could buy your mini.
Yes. That laptop did not run OS X. Is it too much to ask for a desktop and a laptop that both run OS X?

I don't know that old dude in the car.
Do I have to explain everything to you? I thought I was the one that didn't watch film. So far, you're batting 0 for 2.

What's "photog?"
Does it hurt to be so retarded?

Whatever.

Wow dude. Your first entry was worse than mine. Well done!
That's to be debated.

Capitalization makes all the difference. Consider:
I had to help my uncle Jack off a horse.

Your adjectives are all fucked up, just like your attitude. Not knowing something would be considered ignorance, not stupidity. Stupidity, however, is your attitude if you don't un-fuck yourself, and quick-like.

Note the quote in the caption.
I know you suck at context. YOU know you suck at context. EVERYONE WHO KNOWS YOU knows you suck at context. Your childish words mean nothing.

Would you have preferred that I went around in sackcloth and ash that day instead of embracing the freedom and liberty that so many had died for?
Between that and the mockery you chose to dispel here? HELL YES! You come off sounding like a commie bastard. Did you...did you turn liberal? Go burn a flag, asshole.

That laptop did not run OS X.
"I long to have a laptop so that I can go write in remote locations and get away from my desk." <-- any O/S can do this. Perhaps you're just lazy?

Does it hurt to be so retarded?
That doesn't explain a thing. God you're rude. Rude AND angry. Great combination, asshole. They're going to lock you away.

Whatever
I wouldn't want to you COMMIT to anything, you know. So...keep talking.

That's to be debated.
My opinion has been stated. Go.

I had to help my uncle jack off a horse.
THIS IS THE LAST TIME I WANT TO HEAR OF YOUR SICK-FUCK ALABAMA SEXUAL PRACTICES YOU SICK FUCK!

It's amazing!
I can almost feel it.

That makes two of us.
No sir, my time is drawing to an end. I pass the reigns onto you, sir.

Ignorant fuck, stupid fuck...what's the difference?

I'll make you a little wager: $100 Dark Knight kicks Indiana Jones and the Skullfucking's box office receipts to hell.


Between that and the mockery you chose to dispel here?
I mock no one. I can think of no better observance of Memorial Day then to exercise the freedoms and liberties giving to me by those brave men and women who died kicking ass to defend those freedoms and liberties.

You come off sounding like a commie bastard.
The only commie-bastard here is you. You wish to control me like a Goddamned socialist. Go vote for Hillary.

Go burn a flag, asshole.
The only flags I'll be burning are those that are decommissioned and even then, I won't be burning them: retired military personal will.

any O/S can do this
Can any OS run Celtx and Final Draft natively?

That doesn't explain a thing.
Fine then, let's play it like this: Think of two words that start with "photog".

I wouldn't want to you COMMIT to anything, you know.
I'm keeping my options open.

My opinion has been stated.
You had nothing to talk about, I had a declaration to make.

THIS IS THE LAST TIME I WANT TO HEAR OF YOUR SICK-FUCK ALABAMA SEXUAL PRACTICES YOU SICK FUCK!
Go back to Canada you Communist, Nazi Jew!

I can almost feel it.
I did feel it.

No sir, my time is drawing to an end. I pass the reigns onto you, sir.
While I agree that you are old, decrepit and are about to be dethroned, but heavy lies the crown and all that. Besides, I'm through brown-nosing whereas you've only just begun.

I'm not McFly - you are. Coined by photogoot. Please. For the sanity of everyone involved. Try to come up with some shit on your own.

Ignorant fuck, stupid fuck...what's the difference?
I *just* explained it to you. Your incomprehension has now turned into a textbook exampled of stupid. Thank you for the lesson.

Go vote for Hillary.
Interesting. So...you're not going to vote for a Socialist. I respect that. Which Democrat then are you going to vote for?

Can any OS run Celtx and Final Draft natively?
"I long to have a laptop so that I can go write in remote locations and get away from my desk." Its called NOTEPAD, asswipe. Perhaps you're just lazy?

I'm keeping my options open.
Yes, that's called FEAR OF COMMITMENT. You'll likely go nowhere with that amount of open options.

Go back to Canada you Communist, Nazi Jew!
Dude! I'm not the one masturbating horses here. I can read between the lines you know.

I did feel it.
I envy you.

...but heavy lies the crown and all that.
What. A. Whiny. Bitch.

Well, I whined about it a great deal, but ultimately I made up my mind. Thus concludes the first step in this process.

Funny, I've got an upcoming blog about that.

You're the second one to make that observation, yet that is not the case. The caption is the line that he is delievering at that moment in the film, Mr. Brooks. Check it out, yo!
