Ah, the 1980s

Go forth and bask in all that it was.

Personally, I think it sucked.

Fighting with cars...

Finally, after four days of different problems, my car is put back together and is ready to tear up the roads. Halli-howeverthehellyouspellthatword.

Dammit, out of work again
Topic: Recreation 12:54 am EST, Mar  5, 2005

Once again I find myself out of work. Not just out of work, but the reasons given were that my department found itself reorganizing. I have a pretty good lead on the how/why; a friend of mine went to work for another company for a few months and got a return offer within 90 days. He passed up a permanent job for a contract job -- and he's going into management. Fun. So I got kicked out of a company because my shithead friend got made manager, and I was let go to eliminate any conflicts of interest.

Sigh. Must life always be this interesting? I guess I'll go back to reading Machiavelli.

mcchris on tour now
Topic: Recreation 10:20 pm EST, Feb  6, 2005 mcchris is touring now with the expectation of completing some 200 shows in the next year. mc chris is also known as the voice of Hesh from Sealab 2001 and MC Pee Pants from Aqua Teen Hunger Force (both on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim).

mcchris is an independent artist, so keep that in mind when you're actively attempting to sabotage The Machine; his shows will probably be cheaper and mean more than corporate music crap. Tell a few friends, because it's all underground at this point.

Reflections on Culture
Topic: Recreation 5:33 am EDT, Jun 13, 2004


It's an interesting concept. But what's also amazing is that you can either become part of the culture of a particular area, or change your latitude and become part of another, or effect(infect?) the new one with your old or present culture.

I had an interesting experience today. I forsook the city life and ways for a few hours and met a few people a few miles east of my home in Alabama and was pleastantly suprised to see a variety of lifestyles and personalities alive in the mountains of North East Alabama. Indeed, I was at the very foot of Lookout Mountain, a local hill of fame for the ability to visually locate seven states from the peak.

It was a refreshing journey. I didn't take any pictures, as I was the driver. But the drive was refreshing, once I left the influence of the city behind and saw the inspoiled countryside. A tiny mountain town and its ways... while people whispered behind my back about the guy in the black shirt and ponytail. Still, if they knew my roots, they'd realize I am but a displaced neighbor. Perhaps the greatest gift of all is the ability to cross social strata without having to try.

Always interesting to see the strong types, those who life off of nature and its wonders. People are closer to subsistence living there, a simple life of merely surviving like those settlers before them who came to the valley. Indeed, I believe Fort Payne may be the jewel of the Tennessee Valley. It reminds me of where I was ten years ago, in a simpler place and time.

Stop in and see Desoto Park if you're driving through. It's worth the stop. It may yet be the only redeeming mark of Alabama.
