I just watched a tree fall down. It had been standing for a very long time, and I watched it the exact moment it came crashing down. I feel lucky! But now I know that it was the most exciting thing I'll see tonight so I am immediately bored.

What I just found out
I just realized that I had my sub wire plugged into my center input, and my center wire plugged into my sub input for my 5.1 sacd input on my reciever. Although I'm dissapointed I didn't figure this out sooner, I find myself at a net gain when I realize my collection of SACD's and DVD-A's are to be rediscovered.

Current Music: Momma Cried - Allison Kraus & Union Station

I just got back from santa cruz this morning. I went there for a vacation away from everything. My plan was to bask in the wonderful warmth and ride mtn bikes. Guess what, it snowed. It hasn't snowed in santa cruz since 1974. It snowed two days in a row. Meanwhile, back in boston, it was 68. Go figure. This year has not been starting off too well!

I should have taken some Nyquil
Hmm, so it's 330 am. I've been gone for a while from this place.
Right now I am thinking about... I am running an endless loop. My bedroom is in shambles. You may find yourself on a futon on the floor, amongst piles of clothes, with a total stranger living outside your bedroom door, and you may ask yourself, how did I get here?
Getting to know a new roommate: ease her into your reality. Do not be too kind nor too distant. But prepare her for the inevitable nonsense that will ensue.

I find sleep to be a struggle. When I close my eyes, the stage of a 27 year old game show lights up with smiling, eager mes waiting to have their turn on tv. Only the host is a critic, making snide comments and interrupting everyone. "shut up! you will never win the prize with those answers!" the next contestant takes the lead and starts a wonderful oratory. Brilliantly scribing words into the air with grand hand gestures and cadence. Not suddenly, but quickly the words fall from the air, disintegrating on their way down. The proud contestant is still moving his mouth but his eyes show despair while the sound fades to a muffled wawawowowo and then to silence. Up starts contestant #1 again. Off base and not even caring what the question is, hoping to be granted the prize using pity. In chimes the host. "No, no, no. Would you just shut up? #3, what have you to save us from this nightmare?" dan3 is relaxed and cool, leans forward to the mic... "just sleep, sleep"
So close to winning the beloved prize of unconsciousness. So near until #1 says something dejectedly, quietly. "damn you for speaking!" our beloved host cries out at earsplitting levels. So on it goes until i sit up and light another cigarette. 411 now.
Is it possible to get sleep without sleeping? I mean if you are really still and breathe slowly. Does that count for anything? Perhaps staring into this laptop screen of mellow blue-white is hindering the sleep process. Undoubtedly my body will at some point pull me unwittingly face down to my pillow and suddenly, sweet slumber. I'll wake up groggy and unaware of the favor granted by my subconscious. On to the order of the day. No order really, just whatever seems necessary. Workout at 9, cancel? work at 10, move to 12? whatever. cars, radio stations, blabber... remotes, tvs, plastic and glass. another day. depressed lately? The thing about it is you don't really want to feel better, until you do, and than you're not depressed anymore.

Change of seasons
I am doing nothing at work today.

I actually moved laptop to a different desk to hide from people. I am giving my two weeks notice today, so I feel pretty free. What's funny is that management just sent out a mass e-mail warning of vigilance against extracurricular internet use.

What are they going to do, fire me?! Ha Ha.

I lost at poker last night. First one out, oh well. I dealt for trish as she took 2nd place. That paid for us to play. She rocks. I wish i had some visitors in boston. My dad and brothers need to come visit.

I have tickets to the cowboy junkies and aimee mann on the same night. They are both great tickets, but I have to sell one set. I heard the NIN concert was amazing, my friend paid 200 bucks per ticket to see them in new york. He said it was worth it, but that sounds impossible.

So, today I tell the boss im gone, on to greener pastures.

He is not going to be happy.

But the hell with him, im tired of coming to work at 7 am. The new gig has me working from home, and I like that idea!

ozric tenticles
I went to go see ozric tenticles in falls church, va on sunday. It was awesome! I never would have guessed that the main keyboardist is a woman. She was so sweet. Of course there was a super light show. And there was a projectionist. This guy was doing some crazy stuff that was a little over the top though. I swear, If that show didn't give me a flashback, nothing will.
The state theater where I saw the show was one of the nicest venues I've ever been in. You don't get that stuff in ohio, anywhere. Well, at least not where you see a quality club show. Their sound system was superb. An inhouse Intelligent Lighting system provided great effects. ten rear intellibeams and 8 front fills. Sweet! Crazy shit happening in the friend department. Some bostonians i know can be complete dicks. Some d.c. resident friends are the best in the world.
Im sitting in Crestron level 2 programming school right now. I am remembering why i did so poorly in school. This is mind numbing. I am definitely getting stoned before class tomorrow.

PK&J Show
I am listening to the PK&J show. I like listening. I heard a clip where someone said they enjoyed podcasts because they are too lazy to write down what they are thinking. That is very familiar to me. This typing is so tedious. I don't care about this crap. I have been wondering if smoking weed all the time had damaged my ability to learn new things. I am ready to learn some new things, and I would be willing to give up smoking weed if I really belived that would assist in building new synapses in my brain. I don't think I'd be asking myself this question if what I got out here In Boston was any good. I swear it's like a chore smoking this stuff.
I hooked up my new surround sound reciever and it rocks. I bought a bunch of SACD's/DVD-A's. My favorite has to be Buena Vista Social Club. Of course, Norah Jones' CD sounds spectacular as well. It has a very intimate feel, perhaps because Norah's Voice works so well into the senhieser she is utilizing. I got Stankonia by Outkast. It sounds just great. I wonder if Beck is going to release his new one in SACD. I certainly hope so. My favorite SACD/DVD-A's are as follows.

1. Beck - Sea Change
2. Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
3. Buena Vista Social Club - Self
4. Aimee Mann - Lost In Space (Only because it is 2 channel)
