The best advice ever.

Whats up my bloggas? Its been 5 days since my last post, which seems like forever.

What have I been doing? Between minecraft, Gran Turismo 5, Bad Company 2 (new map packs released) and sleeping, not a lot. I had to unload some stress and said "fuck it" to my school, and just decided to take 2 F's for this period. I found out that I can just retake the classes and the new grades I make override the F's. I am apparently allowed to fail/withdraw from 3 classes per year without penalty... well.. sorta. If for some reason I withdraw, rather than fail, the VA makes me pay them back. That is why I owe the govt $900 for 2 classes I withdrew from in October. If I would have just failed them, I would have been fine and not charged a dime. Doh!

Even though I am riding a thin line to being dropped from AIU Online, I cannot describe how much stress was relieved when I decided to just ignore the pile of homework that was overdue. Just 4 more classes and I'll have my associates. I may take a break for a while before I start to pursue my bachelors, just until my finances are in better order.

I recall a buddy in the Army giving me some advice during my divorce.. I was on the other side of the world, my wife no longer loved me, I wanted to get home and fix things but I couldnt, and I was a wreck.. He said to me "Sometimes you just have to give up."

It's so very true. Sometimes you are in a world of shit and everything sucks and it just seems like no matter what you do, everything is fucked. Just give up. Don't fight it, because it IS fucked, and you CAN'T fix it, no matter how hard you try. There isn't anything wrong with letting go, because you will not always get your way, and you will not always achieve the things that you want.
You may not want to give up all the time, but in some cases.. just quit. Its better to have your mind free of it.

Anyways, thats my philosophy lesson for the day. As far as the podcast goes, we have been unable to broadcast live since Time Warner Cable sucks dick, and our internet loses connection every 30 minutes or so.. which the technician told me "we know whats wrong.. but id say in a perfect world, it could be fixed as quick as 2 weeks" which sounds very appealing.. Hopefully they cut us some slack on the bill.
If you are out there on the internet reading this, do me a favor and check out our podcast.. just a few minutes of it and see if what you think. We have been receiving emails saying "hey I was bored and decided to listen to your podcast.. I havent laughed so hard in a long time, you guys are great!" which is awesome for our motivation, because we do run out of steam, and we know that we are putting on a good show.. its just hard to get folks to bite. So you, out there on the web.. visit and give us a listen. or just click the tape player on my blog page to the right. Thanks.

So I'm back at work after 3 1/2 days of vacation. I sat around and did nothing, helped my friend out with his car, visited the parents, shot guns, had birthday cake, and played gran turismo 5 during my time off. I wish I could say that it was enough, but I feel like I really needed a few more days.

My finances are completely fucked, but I have come to terms with that. I need to start a hardcore bill-pay plan. I need to pay all of my credit card debt off ASAP.

I also have come to terms with completely blowing this session of college and have taken 2 F's which I will retake next session. This saves me from stressing about homework for a few weeks and starting over fresh. I cant blow it anymore or I'm done. I only need 4 more classes and I'll have my associates degree.

The college alone is a lot off my shoulders. I got about 600 dollars for my bday from my parents, which is all going toward bills. 400 of it is already gone so that I cant spend it. The other bet I am holding on to until my rent check clears.

I remember just over a year ago I was 100% debt free. And now I'm in the hole 19k. That just shows how I felt about buying shit when I was debt free. I guess on the bright side, I have 19k worth of shit that I felt that I needed.

Over the past month, we have been keeping a log of guests/employees who smell natural gas at the hotel I work at. There isn't a consistent smell coming from any specific location, but every once in a while we do get the comment. I have smelled it myself on occasion. I have also reported this to the general manager, maintenance manager, maintenance worker, and assistant general manager. So far nobody has seemed too concerned. So tonight I decide to give the gas company a call and am directed to an automated system..
"To report a gas smell, press 1"
"This is [blah] what is your emergency?"
Uhh... there isn't really an emergency, the phone system just kinda took me here.
*I explain the gas situation*
"Ok sir, I will have a tech there within an hour. In the meantime, you need to evacuate everyone in the building."

Yeah.... that's not happening. I walked all of the floors and didn't really smell anything.. and unless something is on fire, or unless the guy has viable proof that the place is about to explode, I'm not evacuating anyone. I've had to do it before for a fire alarm mishap, and it wasn't enjoyable. So rather than evacuating anyone, I am in the back office blogging about it.

I feel like hammered shit right now. This weekend I celebrated my birthday and drank a bit too much. My friends and I went down to San Antonio and rode go-karts, which was fucking fun. These things went 40mph, and I am sore as shit from steering and smashing my knees against the steering column. On lap 1 I pushed as hard as I could and wrecked pretty terribly. My kart was wedged under a barrier. I wiped out quite a few times thanks to my friend who kept blocking me off. I still won every lap, and was only 3 seconds off from the best lap time at that track.

We then proceeded down to the riverwalk and drank and drank until I dont remember much.

It was a good weekend, but I think we all spent more money than we wanted to. As long as everyone had fun. I did.

Badass bday present and a breakdown

Let me start by saying Minecraft has been ruining my life.  I dont do anything but play that game when Im not at work..  and on the non-busy days... I've been sneaking in some Minecraft AT work.  I have quit smoking, and I have picked up Minecraft.  I havent done my homework that was due last sunday, and I am steadily losing points.  To be honest, I dont really care..  As I said in my last post, Ive been so stressed out that I am saying "fuck it" to a lot of things to prevent me from having a mental meltdown.
On a related note, my good friend Georgie got me an early bday present and it is FUCKING TIGHT!  She made it by hand and it had to have taken her a loooong time to do it.

A motherfucking minecraft pillow!  I told her she should find a way to streamline the production and sell these bitches.

My birthday isnt until the 30th, and I am hoping everything goes as planned.  My plans are to go to San Antonio and ride go-karts with my friends, then drink ourselves into oblivion on the riverwalk. 

And thank GOD I have some days off next week.. I have 4 days off in a row, and I was in dire need of it.  I am going to sit on my balls and do NOTHING the entire time.  I need some mental days.

Also, we are podcasting EARLY this week and will be on stickam LIVE at 10pm CST TONIGHT.  Come check us out at

Hopefully it will be a good show.  I need to do some show prep.

When life gets rough.. just get drunk!

Seriously, I had been stressing out about work and money and everything and felt like I was on the verge of a breakdown.. Then Saturday night I opted to say "fuck it" to everything that I NEEDED to do and I just got drunk with my friends.  It was good times, honestly, and I feel a lot better.  I cant say it was a great idea because my homework didnt get done, but at this point I need a little "do what I want" rather than "do what needs to get done."

I dont know if anyone ever played the RTS game "Axis & Allies" by Atari, but it was a pretty solid strategy game.  I recall building up a huge army of tanks and infantry, and invading an enemy controlled area with the confidence of a god.  Then suddenly the screen flashes and I see my army melt away in ball of fire and ash.  The enemy just dropped a nuke on me.

I recall my gut sinking and just an overwhelming feeling of defeat overcoming me.  I went from possible victory to definite loss.

I had a nuke dropped on me today.  And as much as I HATE for my blog to be all sad and shit, these are just the events of my life. 

For one, I found out that I may owe the government $930 since they fucked up with my college payments or something... I honestly am not even motivated to call them and find out what went wrong, or if it was just a mistake.

I did manage to pull the trigger on a project that I have been brewing for a while, and I started on the website.  I think the idea is solid, and this is step 1 to me being a multi millionaire with my idea.  And I sincerely believe that.
So upon finishing up the payment info to purchase the webspace, my card gets declined.  I check my bank online to find that I pretty much dont have any money.  WHY?  I havent bought shit in a long time.  I quit eating out, and I bought canned goods to hold me over and I STILL dont have fucking money.  The short answer is that I don't make enough..  I am a manager at a hotel, and I'm pretty sure I make the same amount of money as the other front desk agents.  In fact, I'm almost certain that some of my employees make more than I do.

I dont know if I have any grounds to ask for a raise since my performance hasn't had a huge positive impact.

I have to find another source of income or I'm just going to be fucked.

10pm CST we go live

Just a quick plug, for anyone with nothing better to do tonight, come check out our show LIVE @

We will have the cam up a few minutes prior, but the show starts at 10pm central time.  Tell your friends!  We will also be announcing a contest tonight where you guys can participate to win some t-shirts or something.  We havent decided on the exact prize yet, but we WILL be giving away something for serious.

I have also updated my tape deck player on the right side of my blog page to redirect to our new player and our current RSS stream.  Give it a click if you happen to miss our show.

How do I fill this gap?

So my difficulties with marketing the podcast have taken yet another turn.  When we re-launched the podcast, we did so with a business mindset and with the intention of it making money.  That was my approach anyway.  So how does someone do this?  Do most people even know what podcasts are?  What makes someone want to listen to podcasts?

These are all questions that I have been using to find ways to share our show.  I am a pretty judgmental person, and I usually can tell when my own work is crap.  Our podcast is great, genuinely.  I like listening to it because I laugh, and it has been the trend that anyone who actually listens to it feels the same way- with our newer material anyway.

So if our show is great, then we should be making some headway, right?  We have been podcasting for over a year, and we have barely budged with our listeners.  We are on all of the social networking sites and we advertise everywhere we can.  We network with bands and other podcasts.  Something is still missing, because my blog gets more daily views than our website.

There are a thousand new podcasts each day, and the success ratio is like 2%.  There has got to be something better..

All of the popular podcasts have hosts who were already popular prior to their podcast show.  People get popular off youtube by being retarded and becoming a meme.  We are putting in hard work and we have a good show and we hardly get any recognition.

There is something missing that I need to find.

Saturn Ascends

Its been a few days since Ive blogged last.  Ive been real busy not sleeping.

Podcast happened last Thursday and it felt pretty good.  Just for those who asked, you can watch us EVERY Thursday live on stickam @ 10pm CST, or you can hear our recorded shows by going to, and clicking on the tape player, or adding our RSS feed to your itunes or whatever you use.

I think I will also set it up so that our recorded stickam show constantly loops.  In fact, I JUST set that up.  So if you want a early preview of ep 44 and you missed it, check it at at

My birthday is coming.. and I can feel some changes.  Just emotional changes, mental changes.  Nothing that I can describe since I cant actually put my finger on what exactly is changing.  I am becoming slightly more interested in different things.  Maybe just more "aware" of my surroundings.. I dunno.  I also feel like I am looking for acceptance from people, as if I want them to say "you've done good for yourself, keep it up"

Maybe I just need assurance that everything ive done so far hasnt been in vein.

Nothing to write home about today

I spent my first day off cleaning my garage a bit, PART of my room, and I have started detailing my car.

I had given it a quick was the other day at a carwash, so it was still in decent enough condition to begin detailing.  I started with the front of the car and will finish the doors and rear and hardtop tomorrow.  Rubbing compound, claybar, polish, and wax.  It's much easier to work when I do it panel by panel, rather than doing the entire car each step.  It seems easier on my back too. 

I saw a Berlina Black S2000 CR tonight at the parking lot of Fry's and it looked CLEEEAAANN!  It was also 100% stock.  It makes me wonder if I have been fighting an uphill battle with all the modifications done to my car.  I'm just not sure.. I took a break today and went to grab lunch.  Upon walking out of the store I saw my car in the parking lot and just thought "god damn.. it's almost exactly the way I want it"   but the shitty part about having a "nice" car is the fact that every dent, noise, or problem I have is magnified by 100.  My hardtop really sets my car off, but it is in need of much love before its something I can brag about.  I think since I have installed it, it has brought down the clean look of my car, simply because the hardtop needs some paint/body work. 

money is fucking tight right now though, and i have to dedicate my funds elsewhere for the time being.

These are all old pictures from when I first got my new wheels.  Maybe after I finish detailing tomorrow I'll take it out for a photoshoot.

Not much to look at once you scrape em off your boot

Tonight was a much needed night.  The GF came over and we watched Starship Troopers.  She had never seen it before, and I was way past due for a viewing.  I had forgot how awesome the movie was, and she enjoyed it.  She has very good taste in movies.. probably better taste than I do.

Today sucked at work.  It was full of errors from my desk staff that I had to attempt to fix.  No excuse really.. It's my fault, and as a manager I should be making sure that stuff like this doesnt happen.  I need to tighten down and "check my staff."

I also managed to drop my Nexus One and shatter the screen.  My stomach dropped as I knew I just fucked up a $600 phone.. but I was relieved to see that replacement screens only cost 60 bucks or so.  Maybe a new screen will improve the touch sensitivity a little over my current screen.  Just some screencaps from movies tonight.  Thanks to everyone following and commenting!  Again, click on the links to my podcast on the right of my page and check it out.  Episode 43 is uploaded, and be sure to check out our forums.  Also, my minecraft server has been up 24/7.

Name that movie?

Saturday, November 6, 2010

And then theres the other stuff

My life is VERY unbalanced right now.  I can feel it.  There is so much shit piling up in my head, and on my to-do list, and I am having a hard time coping with it all.  I need to make some changes.

Shit with the GF took a bad turn, and now that's on the rocks.. Not that she is doing anything wrong, but she is going through a difficult time, and I simply do not have the extra energy to devote to fixing that situation.  The only time I have for a relationship right now, is one where I don't have to tend to 24/7, and while that may seem extreme, it really isn't.  I just need her to be there to hang out with, go see a movie, have dinner, and just be around to have fun.  I need something cool and easy.  I CANNOT deal with something complicated and full of compromises, because I'm wound up tight like a guitar string right now.

My job... It makes me despise people.  Today I was not in the mood to deal with peoples shit.  People are not all vile, and greedy, and ignorant... but these are the only traits that I see at my job, and part of me thinks that my cynical outlook on life makes me see them this way, but another part of me feels that my job is the cause of this.

My health.  It has been well over 2 months since I have quit smoking.  I have an addictive personality apparently, but quitting smoking wasn't as hard as I thought once I got past month 1.  The downside is that I have gained weight, mainly because I am eating bullshit every day.  I used to be in shape big time.. in the gym twice a day.  Now I'm at Taco Bell twice a day.  I feel like shit inside, and I honestly do NOT like eating fast food at all.. it's disgusting.  But when I spend 10 hours at work every day, what else do I have time for?  I think beginning tomorrow I'm done with sodas, and will be making use of the fruit bowl at work.  If I can quit smoking, I can quit cokes and shitty food, right?

Finances.  Money is the root of all evil, and most certainly the root of all my problems.  I cannot describe how much better I feel when all bills are paid, and I have extra money in my wallet.  Shit is piling up, and I REALLY need a fucking break with my finances.  As I stated before, I get paid to go to college, and the next time I get paid, I need to get my credit cards paid the fuck off so I can sleep a little better at night.

Speaking of college..  I have 4 assignments left, and they are due Sunday at midnight.  Tomorrow evening, I WILL be completing these.  I really need a win this time so that I don't fail my classes.  I have been bullshitting my way through class, and that is definitely not the way to go.  But I have also been bullshitting my way through work, my relationship, finances, diet and pretty much everything else.

My bullshitting is not a trait I am proud of, and I am wondering where it came from.  Is this how I deal with things when I am forced to multi task?  Doesnt it make sense?  When given a high demand, production must be increased to provide those numbers, while quality may suffer in result.  I'm not sure there is any other way, unless I delete all of my video games and focus more on the things that matter..  which will bring my "fun" time to 0.. but can I afford to have fun right now?

I used to be on the path of creativity.  A year ago I was balls deep into photography.. $4000 worth of camera equipment, and the motivation to take pictures of everything.  I was actually gaining a lot of ground winning contests, having my photos featured on the front page of websites, getting PAID to take pictures.. Somewhere along the way, I just replaced one passion for something else.. 

I leave tonight's post with some of my work from the past, which can all be found on my flickr.

and oh yes... my car.  As I said, thats another blog post to come...

Friday, November 5, 2010

Thats a wrap.

We just got done with episode 43 of Your Uncle's Lap, and I have to say, I honestly think it went a LOT better this time around as far as the setup and the flow.  We have a rhythm and we are improving upon it.  As for our equipment and sound issues, part of it was operator error, and part of it was just equipment not being good enough...  which is retarded because we have spent a shit ton on equipment.

We are using a Mackie ProFX12 mixer and our USB out produces noise regardless of the computer we plug it in to, and there are several forum posts about this issue.  Of course if we turn up our gain the noise is drowned out and can be cleaned up in post, but you would think for $300 dollars you wouldn't have to mess with it.

I am a little pissed by some of my friends/fans....  A lot of real close friends who DO listen to the show from time to time simply will not help promote the show, or give us a little assistance such as populating our message boards with posts.  A lot of them won't subscribe to our feeds, which will become important when we go to advertisers.  And a lot of them on facebook DONT EVEN FUCKING KNOW WE DO A PODCAST.   This is retarded because our Your Uncle's Lap facebook page is A PAGE/PROFILE ABOUT OUR PODCAST.  We add people we know from that facebook page, and they accept us, yet they dont even know that we do a podcast.  Someone sends us a message over facebook "so what are you guys up to now?  Oh?  cool!  I didnt know you guys did a podcast!  I'll have to check it out some time, whats the link?"

As if we dont spam our goddamn link everywhere.  We spend a lot more money that we should on this project, and for the 3 months that we were gone, everyone was asking "When are you guys coming back??  You need to podcast again!!"  Fucking SUPPORT US!  Click our ads on our page, tell your friends, help us sustain ourselves so that we can quit our miserable jobs and podcast all day.

At any rate, if any of you out there have listened to our show, we will have the new episode up monday.  2 episodes actually.. the missing episode 41 as well.  If you HAVENT listened to it yet, click the tape player on the right side of the page, and LISTEN TO OUR PODCAST WHILE YOU BLOG.  I have found that even with my close friends, they will NOT go out of their way to listen to our shit.  But once they do, they are surprised at our show, and wonder why we havent made it big time yet.  Answer?  Most people are negroids when it comes to that kind of stuff.

Also add us to facebook and subscribe and review us on itunes if you DO happen to like us.

Sorry for the lack of updates... It is Wednesday, and it is officially my day off.  I have pretty much been spending the past... 8 hours playing Minecraft.  Fuck that game man.. my time goes right out the window.  The good news is that I now have my own server up, and its open to the public.  Nothing really themed going on, just building cool shit.  EVERYONE is welcome, so long as everyone follows the rules.  Join up @

Speaking of Your Uncle's Lap, episode 42 is uploaded and is available at  I will go ahead and update the flash player right now so you guys can get up on that.

Podcast tomorrow 10pm cst!  Don't forget to set your watches if you want to participate and watch us LIVE on stickam while we record.

As for today... It's rainy and wet outside, so I don't know if detailing my car will happen, since I will just fuck up my job if I have to run out for something.

Ohhh welll....  Hopefully I can get to it before winter.  Also, thanks so much for the comments and the follows.  It is not forgotten, and I AM enjoying reading all of your blogs.

Down for the count.

As a followup from my previous post, I barely made it through the day.  I got home and resisted the urge to fall asleep because I had some much needed business to take care of.  I needed to catch up on 2 episodes of Boardwalk Empire, and 2 episodes of East Bound And Down.  My priorities are very much in order.  Both are magnificent shows by the way.  So with a full bladder, and 4 episodes down, I ran up the stairs to my bathroom, which ended up being a very bad idea.  Whilst pissing, I suddenly became very light headed... my hearing became a muffled ring, and my vision became hazed with a blue tint.  I got that somewhat nauseous feeling as I stumbled to my bed, where my body literally fell.  As I fell toward my pillow, it was all in slow motion, and I could only hear the voice inside my head say "Down for the count."

I woke up shortly after 11, still tired as fuck, and hastily began working on my homework which was due at midnight.  I didnt make the deadline for ALL of my work, but I DID complete ALL of it by 1:45am.  Maybe I wont get too many points taken off.

I need to balance my life a little better.  I am making too many compromises to have fun.. I honestly dont have time for it.

I lied.

I had everything in my pockets ready to go home last night, and did exactly that at 11pm sharp.  Knowing I would have an early start in the morning, I had intentions to go right to bed.  I felt bad when my GF text me at 10pm that she was at her apartment by herself dressed up in her costume, drinking and watching Zombieland.  Not the WORST scenario ever, except for the fact that she was supposed to be having a Halloween party.
So I did what every good BF would do and I stopped by when I got off work.  By the time I had got there at 11:15ish, there of course were 10 or so people there.  She was dressed up as Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction, and she was lookin good.  I introduced myself being disguised as "Guy who has work in 6 hours". 

I had 2 beers and decided I should throw in the towel.  Feeling somewhat left out on the fun, I decided to make an appearance at the other party to see my friends.  The other party was a clusterfuck of 30 or so "kids" whom were all quite possibly high on something.  The smell of pot was very apparent, the noise was pretty loud, and the front door was wide open.  Not the smartest of party setups I've seen, but if the cops never get called, then kudos.  I saw a few of my friends, who said they wanted to come to my GF's party after an hour or so, just due to the madness at that party.

Great, so I'm obligated to stay up at least an hour for my friends to show up at my gf's party.

One thing lead to another, and if I was going to be awake at a party, I might as well be drinking, right?

10 or so beers, 1 big texas cheeseburger, and 4 tacos later, it's 3:30 and me and my GF are finally hitting the bed.

My alarm proceeds to ring a few hours later.  And here I am at work.  I'm pretty sure the storm brewing in my intestines is going to be the worst god awful shit known to man, being that I had all that shit last night, and about 6 cups of coffee yesterday through my work shift.

Saturday, October 30, 2010


Guess what I am for Halloween?!?!  An employee!  I work until 11pm tonight, and I have to be at work at like 8am tomorrow, which kinda puts me out of commission for any party stuffs.  So I will finish the rest of my HW at work, and spend my night playing New Vegas, or perhaps Metro2033 if I can get it to run decent.  A beautiful game, but 1080p freaking kills framerate.
I have adjusted my blog layout a bit and moved the Podcast player to the right, along with all the appropriate links to follow us.  I'm already looking forward to doing the next episode.  I am FUCKING STOKED about the weather.  I love the fall, and I like wearing cold weather cloths.  Also, my birthday is soon.

I REALLY want to spend my next Wednesday off detailing my car.  I have neglected doing so and have just been settling for a quick wash.  I need to hit it with rubbing compound, clay bar, polish, then wax.  It should take a full day, if not more.  I should go ahead and order some touchup berlina black paint to spruce up my hardtop, but then again, the whole thing needs a repaint.  I really want to do a photoshoot with the new hardtop.  Ahhh my car.. I'll save that for a separate blog post.

Friday, October 29, 2010

The morning after

Well the dust has settled from my 2 days off..  What has been done?  Well a haircut, my gf's bday, and our podcast.  Other than that, nothing.  And if you've been keeping up with my blog, I still havent done my homework.  Fuck.  Today this needs to happen.  I need a few days "off" from everyone and everything, so hopefully I'l get that time to catch up on some "me time".

The podcast was good overall.. we had a lot of technical problems that were pretty irritating.  Everything needs to be streamlined, and we need to fix a lot of small problems.  Apparently some people couldnt hear us live, so I can only hope that our recorded audio isnt fucked.  I guess we'll find out.

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The time has come

Well, I just spent 50 bucks on snack food for our company and our podcast tonight.  I also spent 24 dollars on a haircut, and 130 dollars last night on a new webcam.

All of this PLUS my time and effort has gone into getting this podcast revamped, so I reeeeaaallly hope that everything turns out.  I need to do some quick reviewing of the material for the show, and then its off to beer and podcast.

If you want to check us out and laugh until your sphincter explodes, come visit us tonight at

Also check out our message boards and our content at, and you can listen to our shows by clicking the player at the top of my blog page.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

yeahhh... ill get to it.

I am the worst person at doing homework ever.  Seriously, not only is my college FREE, but I get PAID to go to college.  (Thanks Army!)  If I fail a class, its no big deal to me, because all I do is not get paid for that semester.

That is my mindset, and its terrible.  I am missing out on valuable cash because im a lazy fucker.  Not just that, but im lowering my GPA because im a lazy fucker.  My macroeconomics was due sunday.. and its now wednesday.  So maybe if I make a promise here in the open forum, I'll fell more obligated to stick to my word.  I will be caught up with my homework AND be done with this weeks assignments for all my classes BEFORE I do podcast thursday night.  Yeah, btw, if anyone has had a chance to check out my podcast by clicking the cool player at the top, and you like it, we will be recording LIVE on stickam Thursday night at 10pm CST.  Mark your calendars, because thats our new schedule.  Every thursday at 10pm.  thats at if anyone wants to watch 3 dudes sit at a table and talk about shitty farts.
Other than that, tomorrow is my gf's birthday.  Even though it has already been celebrated, I feel that I will be required to spend the evening with her, so perhaps I should start on my homework now...   or play minecraft.. or new vegas.....

All these moving parts

The day of our podcast return is coming soon.  With all this talk of organization and planning and website building and rounding up folks for the community, I just hope I dont lose focus of the actual podcast content.  It's hard to come up with interesting/funny topics when your life consists of work and stress.  Not to mention we had a 3 month brake from podcasting.  Its a good thing I have 2 days off prior to podcast to unwind.  Our message boards are coming along, and I just hope our community pulls through and we have good attendance.

For anyone out there in the interwebs, check us out.  Its a comedy podcast with 41 episodes done so far.   This shit is gonna get big.

Up Up UP

After a day full of fuck yesterday, it all ended well.  All 3 of us finally sat down and talked about all of the details for the podcast, and its becoming more and more solid with every step.  Dare I say its becoming bulletproof?  The gf also came over and everything is cool.  Oh drama, you get the best of us.

More plans are in the making to find some plan to make a hefty profit.  I still need to find a time to start learning Java....  Time and money.  There's never enough.


Today almost sucked.. a lot.  Work piled up and got hectic, then things went south with some gf stuff.  I honestly dont have time for a gf, but im doing my best to make it work.  I dont have time for a lot of things.  homework didnt get done tonight, so I'm hoping my grade doesnt take too big of a hit for it being late. I have to commit my evening tomorrow to finishing.  And now I have to commit even more time to the podcast.  And the 10 hour shifts at work arent helping any.  Somethings gotta give sooner or later.

This Halloween was kind of planned out earlier.  The main problem with dates like this is that everyone wants to have their own party.  Rather than us have our own, we decided to consolidate parties at our friends house.  That way if there are any spills, or crazy ongoings, we dont have to deal with the aftermath.  My gf decided that she wanted to have her own party without telling me, or rather she told me as she sent a mass text message to the rest of her friends.  This splits the group into two.. my friends who are deeply involved with halloween with outfits and whatnot, and my gf and her friends, who im sure just want the run of the mill party.  I really wanted to go all out this year with a badass outfit from fallout 3, but if i go to my gf's party, NOBODY is going to know who the fuck I am, and I refuse to go to some party while my gf has her own.

So fuck it, Im staying in, and will have no party at all.  Fallout New Vegas releases tonight anyways, so I'll be fine at home.

Im Alive

It's been a few days since I've posted, mainly because I have been occupied with several other projects.  I will get to those later.  It looks like after some discussion, our podcast project is back up.  I'm looking forward to this, but I want to make sure that everything is on the right track so that this doesnt suffer the same fate as last time.  Lots of planning will be required, even if the others don't feel so.  More on that later as well.


Last night Ryan and and I had another discussion about our project, and i let it be known that i am totally interested. This is going to take a lot of work, and frankly, its pretty scary.
One milestone is that lane moved out, after much persuasion. I think this will help somehow, in the fact that he was a slight distraction.
I need more sleep.

Im Mobile

I showed up to work this morning only to find that the backup battery attached to the server had died, which caused a big paniced mess. Imagine that, the item that is supposed to ensure that the server is up was the source of the problem.
My small amout of electronics saved the day, which is sad, because the solution was purely based on common sense.
Homework is due at midnight and I am 0% complete. I did however finish much of the structure i was working on in minecraft.


Work was slow enough for me to justify going home.  Today I was 100% unmotivated.  What motivates me?  Money.  I need more of it.  I have broke beyond the dream stage and I now face the hard part- reality.  Everything I could ever imagine having is just within glimpse, but I'm running out of time.  I need a plan, an idea, and a means to complete the necessary steps to get there.

I went to schlotzkys tonight for dinner.  I've managed to stay away from fast food for the most part here recently, but I dont grocery shop, and I never cook for myself.  I cooked for my 1 year anniversary yesterday, but all that food is for my gf.
The girl at schlotzkys looked like she hated her job, or at least was very tired.  Everyone in the workplace always has other things on their mind, and those who really excel at their jobs have found the trick, which is to just be content with where you are, and make the best of it.  Damn me for wanting more I guess.  I like the idea of livejournal.  It's not quite as much of a presentation as my previous attempts at blogging, but more of a quick release.  Standing there waiting on my food, I felt the need to make a post.  Time to close before my food gets cold.

LJ Entry #1

I saw livejournal on the movie The Social Network and figured I'd give it a shot.  Ironically, facebook is too cluttered with friends that aren't really my demographic for the things that I write.  Sure, feedback is there, but I also dont like exposing my raw thoughts on facebook.  People don't honestly know me, and I like to keep it that way.  I've done blogs before, but we'll see how this goes.

Today I was shopping at Sam's club for groceries for the hotel, and I saw a woman pull a Lone Star Card out of her Prada wallet.  Only in America.

Also, guests annoy me, mainly when they get in a tight spot like oversleeping and staying in their room for an extra 2 hours past checkout.  All of a sudden they shit bricks when they find out they are being charged another night.  It's not us being an asshole, its called policy, and its there for a reason.  But of course we have to be forgiving and we didn't charge the guy.  What kind of example does that set if our policy is as solid as jello.
