So lately I’ve been feeling the distinct urge to blog again. I’ve tried to think of something more interesting to write about than just myself, but to no avail. So I have returned once more to my oft-neglected slice of WordPress, and as the last time I wrote was simply about NINE1SIX Magazine in December of 2007, I feel it’s time for a much needed update.

Charlie and I are still together and going strong, moving quickly toward 2 1/2 years together, which is fantastic. Even with our busy schedules and hectic lives, we are always able to make time for each other (even if it’s not exactly when we want to).

NINE1SIX has been launched for some time, but due to my slammed-full schedule (more on that later), I haven’t been able to work with it as much as I’d like. We have a featured article up about Instant Gratification and some new reviews and such, but without the time to devote to it, most of our new original content is on hold. But Edward and I have some great ideas that we think will start building the magazine’s name recognition around town and on the interwebs.

My school life is pretty much dominating absolutely everything else going on with me. I’m officially at Sacramento State University and already overloaded, but enjoying it. Pledging a fraternity, business classes, band, QSA, and general college social life are pretty much all I do. Fitting in family time and, often more importantly to me, Charlie time is challenging but still (usually) fun. I’ve had to learn new techniques of getting myself organized and making myself do the work I need to do. I have to go in for advising to plan out the rest of my school career ASAP as well, which is a bit daunting.

And, perhaps more exciting than starting at university and moving forward in my life…

I got an iPhone.

Those are pretty much the main changes in my life since December. Not much on paper, but it’s been a bit of a roller coaster so far.

There’s a lot bumbling around in my head right now, and as I’m at work I think I’ll wait til I have some time later to get some of it written down.

Oh, and this blog may be relocating sometime soon to the NINE1SIX servers. Haven’t really decided whether it’s worth it or not, we’ll see.

Well my cohost on the seemingly (but not really!) defunct podcast “Instant Gratification” and I are going to start a Sacramento-centered pop culture magazine called NINE1SIX. It’s going to be pretty fantastic. I don’t really wanna go into all of the details as to what we’re gonna have yet, but you can rest easy that it’ll be pretty awesome.BW NINE1SIX Headshot 1

And in a similar area, NINE1SIX will be hosting Instant Gratification once it’s up and running, and the podcast itself will be getting (another) complete overhaul. This time we think that what we’re changing it to will be both more enjoyable (nay, bearable) to listen to and easier to put together. With a bit of initial work, all we’ll have to do is record some content and then I edit it to become a much more polished 30 minute show. As with the magazine, I’ll leave the details for the re-launch. If you want to check the podcast out, the first 5 episodes are up at it’s blog, but you ought to hurry as those will be taken down and classified “IG Classic” and saved for later. We’ll be restarting the numbering at 1 once the move takes place.

Oh, and for the website, my Creative Director (Edward) and I had a really fantastic photo shoot with his photographer friend. I’ll go ahead and post one of the really good headshots she took, but you’ll have to wait with mounting anticipation for the rest!K, well I’m outta here. My fingers feel like icicles as I’m sitting outside at the True Love Coffee House downtown, and typing is becoming increasingly impossible.It was nice catching up. We should do it again sometime.

Fuck.

Check this guy’s article out. Pay close attention to his misuse of Biblical scripture and his amazing grasp of grammar and spelling (which must have really helped in getting his “PhD”).

Well, Hello!

October 16, 2007

I just tattooed this cat this morning. Look at the good I do. Get the hell outta here.

This first video is the original video “Welcome To My Home” starring Brenda Dickson, an 80’s soap star. Watch it and you’ll agree that its one of the most self-celebratory things ever.

 

Then watch this one, a parody made by someone named Devon Green apparently. It’s fantastic. And inspiring the first stage dialog I have ever written.

 

See? Sensational.

In a crazy and unheard of triple play, a third song is ruling my iPod in this all powerful triumvirate.

She was waiting at the station
He was getting off the train
He didnt have a ticket so he had to bum through the barriers again.
Well the ticket inspector saw him rushing through
He said girl you don’t know how much I missed you but
We’d better run cos’ I havent got the funds to pay this fine.
She said fine.

Well so they ran out of the station and jumped onto a bus With two of yesterdays travel cards and two bottles of Bud,
And he said you look well nice.
Well she was wearing a skirt
And he thought she looked nice
And yeah, she didnt really care about anything else
Because she only wanted him to think that she looked nice,
And he did.

But he was looking at her, yeah all funny in the eye.
She said come on boy tell me what your thinking,
Now dont be shy.
He said alright, I’ll try.
All the stars up in the sky and the leaves in the trees,
All the broken bits that make you trip up and grassy bits in between.
All the matter in the world is how much I like you.

She said what?
He said let me try and explain again.

Right, birds can fly so high, or they can shit on your head,
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel so scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Right birds can fly so high or they can shit on your head,
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel well scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Yeah thats how i feel about you

She said what?
He said you.
She said what are you talking about?
He said you.

Right birds can fly so high or they can shit on your head
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel so scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Right birds can fly so high or they can shit on your head,
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel well scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Right, thats how i feel about you.

She said thanks, I like you too.
He said cool.

Kinda an odd song to read like that, you have to hear it to really get it. Check Kate Nash out here.

Hot on the heels of my last post, this is also ruling my iPod currently:

La la la
La la la

I’m starting to believe boy,
that this is meant to be boy
’cause I believe in karma,
boy, do you believe in karma?

So forget about your past life,
’cause this could be our last life
We’re gonna reach nirvana, boy,
we’re gonna reach nirvana

Each time you put your lips to mine,
it’s like a taste of Buddha’s Delight
I see the gates of paradise,
you’re a taste of Buddha’s Delight
Tell me all your fantasies tonight,
and I will make them happen
’cause I’m not satisfied if I don’t get my Buddha’s delight

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

Like sitting meditation,
you give me elevation
Can you take me higher?
Wonder can you take me higher?

I want a revelation,
and sweet salvation
And the eternal fire,
show me the eternal fire

Each time you put your lips to mine,
it’s like a taste of Buddha’s delight
I see the gates of paradise,
you’re a taste of Buddha’s delight
Tell me all your fantasies tonight,
and I will make them happen
’cause I’m not satisfied if I don’t get my Buddha’s delight

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

I’ve got to have my Buddha’s delight (Om shanti shanti)
I’ve got to have my Buddha’s delight (Om shanti shanti)
Ahhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhh……

Each time you put your lips to mine,
it’s like a taste of Buddha’s delight
I see the gates of paradise,
you’re a taste of Buddha’s delight
Tell me all your fantasies tonight,
and I will make them happen
’cause I’m not satisfied if I don’t get my Buddha’s delight
La la la

This is off the “Music and Lyrics” soundtrack, a movie I’ve yet to see, but this some makes me want to go rent it.

 I can’t get this song out of my head…

V1
I don’t get you . .
I can’t forget what you’ve forgotten
all along
I’ve never been so alone

B-section
Don’t Cry Out
Cease Fire

V2
I was pretending
Your secret kiss of confidence
Was my escape
The perfect game to play…

Chorus
Ten nine eight and I’m breaking away
I’m all dressed up and I’m ready to play
Seven six five four and I’m all over you
Counting three two one and I’m having fun…

V3
Your fascination
With naked walls of silk and skin
With no conditions
I needed you to notice….
That’s all I wanted

No, I’m not Dead!

September 14, 2007

I just realized that the last time I wrote a blog was in July… like 2 months ago… Whoops!

Lots has happened since then. I got my Sidekick III (thank god), Instant Gratification is mostly back up on it’s feet, I had a birthday, and I’m back in school for the semester.

My digital life has pretty much died for the last few weeks. I’m all over the place with school, work, QSA, and friends/family/boyfriend, and I haven’t had much chance to get anything done at all.

Sooooo I started this post with a lot of drive to write a lot, but that has just deserted me =P

Keep an eye on the Instant Gratification page for a new post tonight/tomorrow! We’re recording Episode #5 tonight and it should be edited/posted ASAP.

Stuff and Things

July 16, 2007

That title is complete crap, incidentally.

I’m at work (as always) and bored (as always) and figured I’d have a non-tech overdose post. I AM looking for the Missing Sync program for the Hiptop platform, which has been discontinued (which hopefully means it’s free now).

This weekend was AWESOME. I got to spend the evening with Charlie on Saturday since his family was out of town. We watched “Minority Report” and “The Wedding Singer” and just relaxed and laid around. It was one of the most comfortable and relaxing nights I’ve had in a loooooong time. It’s amazing to me how just spending time with Charlie makes me feel, just completely at peace. He’s great =)

Sunday we went to McKinely Park with Lex and friends since we were unable to go to the lake, and I have to say it was a LOT of fun! We laid around on the blankets in the shade of a big ol’ tree and dozed and chatted and threw chips at each other. Nice lazy afternoon. We got frozen yogurt at Big Spoon afterward, which is always delicious.

I get to pick out some new glasses soon, hopefully next week. I’m wearing my glasses for the next few weeks since I need to give my eyes a break from my contacts, and my current frames are getting kinda tired. I’ve changed my style a few times since I got them (minor changes, but changes all the same) so they don’t really fit me anymore. So it’s time to go get some new ones! I was poking around the interwebs today and found a style that interests me, so I’ll toss it up here

I like the detatched sides on these with the thicker ear pieces. Dunno about the light brown on the sides since I wear stark black and white so often, and that might look a little odd. Never had anything Armani, and I bet these cost almost as much as my damn phone…

There was another style that was frameless and the earpieces can come off and be switched out with other colors and styles, which was interesting. With the same frames you can have variability.

Well, I’m gonna get back to data entry. I need to hit Edward up to try to podcast tonight. I really want to get the next episode up since it’s been more than a month. So hopefully keep an ear out!
