Tomorrow is Rapture. I have no idea where I'm going, but ... I try to repent. The only comfort, I know if Rapture is real ... the kids are gonna be safe. People are goofy. No one is really sin free. That's what makes us human. Hopefully God understands that. We'll see. Although I did see a couple funny items.

Sad Day

And I just brought up celebrity deaths in a earlier post, but Randy 'Macho Man' Savage has passed. Sad day. Already people are flooding the internet ... including me, with words, both kind and unkind, as well as pictures. Google it.

I remember the days of staying up late on Friday night to watch WWF. With Hulk, Andre, Macho Man, Ultimate Warrior, Junk yard Dog, CoCo-B-Ware ... all the greats. Too many to list. If anyone can find a nice list with pictures, that would be great. Maybe I'll start one. Then after watching on Friday night till 1am, I'd go to my bowling league first thing in the morning and everyone would be talkin' about what happened and OMG and such. Not a big fan of the new stuff. Too much drama, but maybe that's cause real-life drama is enough. I don't need fictional drama.

Goodbye Macho Man. You missed the Rapture. Hope you're in a happier place.

Gold ....

I don't know why ... but this is gold.

So much Garbage out there

Verizon Wireless - Yes, this effects me directly, which is why I'm complaining, but this idea is absolute garbage. But, that's how the man makes money ... charging us. I won't effect people in large metro cities that much since they can piggy back on to wifi, but since I'm a sticks person .... I'll be hurting. I already pay $80 a month. Although I hear I'll be grandfathered in with my current unlimited data plan.

Osama Bin Laden - I'm already sick of hearing Osama's death. It's just like any celebrity, except, in this country, it's hatred instead of sorrow. And then I gotta hear about the Navy Seals that went in, the war dogs, and Osama's porn. Just getting tired of it. Let's go back and talk about Ed McMahon or Billy Mays. Those will truly be missed and I crave to talk more about them. And Ed McMahon got over shadowed by Michael Jackson. Terrible.

I'll be back ... after I cover this up

Ah politicians. Such a fun source of scandal. Arnold Schwarzenegger has got a doozy on his hands. The Terminator, as we all know, is not indestructible by bullets, molten metal, or the female form. Or so it seems. Poor Maria. What do you do now? I guess the Kennedy family is just stuck in limbo.

So I was watching Star Wars ....

... and I believe I am .... a Star Wars nerd. It happens. So I thought I'd put down a scale of sorts so you can place yourself. Going from lowest Star Wars nerd to highest.

Slave Human - You know nothing about Star Wars with the possible exception that you know that there are some movies (possibly only one movie) called Star Wars. You tend to confuse it with the laser defense system mentioned by Ronald Reagan. You live a normal life with a normal job.

Storm Trooper - You know the existence of all movies and have seen them, possibly only once for the newer ones. Yet you do not understand that the "newer movies" are actually prequels. You notice children playing with light sabers and acknowledge it's source of entertainment. The major characters in the movies can be named with some thought. You live a normal life with a normal job.

Interplanetary Gangster\Trade Federation Member - You enjoy all the movies and tend to enjoy the newer ones more for their modern flair and CG effects. You sometimes get "the bug" to watch the movies. When you see children playing with light sabers, you join in. Inevitably, you accidentally injure a child swinging your make-shift light saber too hard. In your life and work, sometimes you make Star Wars references that apply to the current real life situation.

Padawan Learner - This is the actual first level of fan-dom/nerdy-esk tendencies. You have seen all movies, multiple times and enjoy them all. The nostalgic draw of the "older" movies (of which you know are chronologically newer) is quite a bit larger then "normal" people. You have seen the movies enough times that you do not need the subtitles when Jabba the Hut speaks. You have attempted the Jedi Mind Trick at least three times. Instead of joining in light saber duels, you sometimes start them ..... with children. You tend to gravitate to being a Sith Lord in these situations. In your life and work, you actively look for situations that can be related to a Star Wars reference, and you attempt to make it.

Jedi Knight - You have seen the movies multiple times and have either played the game Star Wars: The Old Republic or seen the cartoon, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, or both. When watching the movies, you can recite all dialog of all characters, including Jabba the Hut (click here to find out the language he speaks, although you shouldn't have to at this stage). You have also read the books in order to quench your thirst for knowledge after the movies end. You attempted to use the Jedi Mind Trick at least three times .... in the past week. Your light saber duels have started to take on an epic feel to them with possibly one light saber being a "not just a toy" light saber. You almost always attempt to force throw during your duels, when you accidentally hurt a child .... yet continue on dueling while mentioning to them that they are not using their "hatred to strike you down making your journey to the dark side complete" (said in emperor's voice). You have attended a Star Wars or comic book convention. In life and work, you make Star Wars references whether they apply to real life situations or not .... and you think it's hilarious/awesome when others do not. And they most certainly do not.

Jedi Master - You take your post of sitting on the Jedi Council very seriously ... especially since you started the club called "The Jedi Council". Your knowledge of the movies, cartoon, and books is unsurpassed. In the numerous Star Wars games you play, you fantasize about actually performing Force maneuverers by mimicking the characters and in some cases, complain that the characters are doing it incorrectly. When you go to conventions, you dress in character. You have a large action figure collection, most still in the packaging. You have an extremely expensive Light Saber that you do not allow anyone to touch, and is mounted above your bed. You have numerous movie posters, framed of course, hanging in your studio apartment. Perhaps even some life-size cut-outs or mannequins. Your favorite is Yoda and you sometimes meditate in front of it. Light Saber duels do not happen since there is no one with a sufficient metachlorian count to challenge you. You attempted to use the Jedi Mind Trick at least three times .... since starting to read this post. In life and work, you are a Jedi. And you read this post and know that you can come up with better and more levels of Star Wars fanaticism ... i mean pride.

Sith Lord (Master ... not apprentice) - Life is the force. End of statement.

Which are you?

Grrrrr .... Virtual Machines

Waiting is torture. Trying to setup a virtual machine for actual use is like melting your face. You just want to turn away and run. Kills everything about my host computer. Virtual machines have there uses, but when your host machine can't tolerate sharing it's resources with one cause they are so few in the first place .... it's borderline not useful.
And now it's sitting on Windows Update just so I can start being useful. Microsoft ... why is your market share so large. Maybe Google will put a dent in that with Chrome OS. Although Google is already getting too big for it's own good. Computers, phones, home automation, tv .... where will it stop? I a "damn the man" kind of person, and right now .... I'm damning Google. *profuse fist shaking to the sky*


Just took a walk to the bank. Beautiful outside here in the lower peninsula. Went to check out It said 50% chance of thunderstorms today. Can't tell at all. Actually had a conversation with my son about the weather and the weather-man. He's not a big fan of thunder storms and said that he didn't want to go to his baseball game today cause the weatherman showed lightning. Even though I'm sure meteorology has taken huge strides recently, the bulk is still projection based off of trends. I told him that the weatherman can be wrong and that he was still going and that his coach makes the determination. Too nice for a thunderstorm, but as I just said, a lot can happen in a short amount of time. And presents today as partly sunny. I have noticed it saying partly cloudy before. Who is the person that determines partly sunny or partly cloudy? Aren't they the same thing? Unless it's partly sunny and the other part is plasma-filled holocaust? I guess that would classify as partly sunny. You'd want to deter from that. But part sun and part clouds is normal. Unless someone can prove me wrong.

Music playing as writing: Two Faces Have I by Lou Christie

Been a While ....

Man, what do I write here ?!?! Waiting for things to progress at work. Weather is getting nice ... finally. Although it'll probably get too hot for my liking fairly quickly. Hmmm ..... the weather. Fantastic topic to start off with, eh?
Well, kinda bored here. Nothing to excite me here. Slowly learning new things yet at the same time doing what I have to.
Kids are getting bigger. Using a two-wheeled bike or using the bathroom properly.
I just feel like writing something. Listening to music for inspiration. Although New Age Girl by Deadeye Dick is not the best of mind expanders. A novelty nonetheless. Some "now old school" The Crossroads by Bone Thugz-n-Harmony. I remember when this song came out in 1995. Not what I classify as old skool (Run DMC, De La Soul, Positive K). I actually looked up what Positive K is doing these days. Music and videos. Keepin' it real.
