Alas! My plan to wake up earlier in order to guiltlessly waste time is working out perfectly! You know what allows me to do this? Not drinking every night. It's actually working. I suprise myself every morning that I don't wake up cross-eyed.

I've been reading 'Valice' from Philip K Dick, and it is wonderful. Highly recommended.

I've also read this one fucking book called 'Tuesdays with Morrie.' My dad gave it to me as an xmas present. He got all inspired by it. I think it's the lamest, most watered-down, made-for-TV book I've ever fucking sat through. I know some people out there can sit and read anything. I ain't like that. However, my dad was really into it, so I figured I'd give him some respect. Bad mistake.

But yeah, I've been reading a lot lately, and it's working out really well. I feel like I'm doing well for my brain.

Okay, I need to get a haircut and buy some bread. Peace.

You ever have the greatest time cleaning the house? I do, especially after 5 cups of coffee! I get straight-up tweeker on that piece. My bathroom so fucking sterile, you can eat off the floor. Ahh...all sparkly and shiny.

I'm listening to Tech Itch "Immortal Soul" e.p. I know it's utterly pointless to talk about D&B on this site, but still, I'z gots to express my love! This e.p. is probably close to three years old, and it still rocks fucking hard. I like drum&bass that sounds like a nuclear meltdown. Tech Itch totally brings the noise. I like the meltdown-sound, or subtle and intricate drum&bass, like Polar. Mmm...Polar.

I really don't know why there's all these kids on this site who listen to grips of industrial, but don't give a fuck about d&b. How could one deny the beauty of the supreme, aggressive, intelligent, future sound of drum & bass? I've always felt that much of the d&b sound is influenced by and borrowed from the classic industrial shit. The hardness, the moodiness, the eclectic soundscape.

Then again, I think industrial as a genre is dead as fuck. The ethics and ideas of OG industrial still continue to influence, but the modern-day shit I hear is, for the most part, totally wack. I just think it's lame. Industrial was all about innovation and sound exploration, not this stigmatized, overtly-emotional, wimpy pretty-boy shit. I don't know.

Please, if you read this post and get pissed off and/or think I'm way off-base, then reply with knowledge. I'm open to new sounds and new ideas. If you can show me some modern-day industrial that is actually decent, I will try it out with an open mind.

Okay, I gotta go and work out before work. Peace.

Here's a new strategy. To some, it may seem self-evident. To some, everything seems self-evident.

I shall get up earlier so that I may have more time to waste. Like today, I woke up at 8:00am, and felt totally free to do wasteful things without encroaching upon the prime time of my day, which would be something like 11:00am to 9:00pm.

Autechre is so fabulous.

It's hurricane weather here in So Cal. It's odd. I'm gonna walk to the library again today so that I can read as well as absorb this unique wind. The desert where I used to live was always windy and it sucked and I hated it and it made me wanna commit suicide, but it's never windy in Orange County, so now I kinda like it.

I wish I could make a kite-type airplane of somesort so I could fly around all day and look at the earth from 200 feet up. As a pre-pubesent teen, I used to have a reoccuring dream involving me hang-gliding while simultaneously having sex with different people. I can still remember these magical dreams. You know how they have those training sessions where a person is on top of you or whatever to help guide the hang-glider? It'd be like that, with the added bonus of getting freaky. Of course it'd be risky, but wouldn't it also be beautiful if you were, like, over some water off the coast of the Dominican Republic or Cuba or something?

Okay, must strike out at this day and do what's needed. Peace.
