As you may or may not have heard, I recently was the lucky purchaser of a brand new 2012 Dodge Challenger. I am loving this car more and more every day, and she still has that new car smell. I can’t for the life of me figure out what it is about that smell and …View full post

The Alesis iO Dock arrived last week – the day before I moved. This product allows you to connect your iPad directly to your mixer or computer for some direct i\o rather than using the 1\8 inch jack. I hurried up and quickly connected it to the mixer and played some tunes. I have to …View full post
So to continue from the last entry below, while I was on my 3 week hiatus, I played around on the laptop while in bed and did some cool stuff.

Well with the ending of the summer brings a new beginning of my work location.

I’ve come to realize that “death” is immanent. There is no way out. You cannot cheat death. You cannot avoid death. Eventually one will meet death.
I’ve noticed that the older I get, I start to realize how much time I might have left. Sort of like a countdown. You realize at a certain point that you have more yesterdays than tomorrows and for a brief minute, I get depressed at that notion.
I start to feel bad for all the older folks, my parents who must have this very thought. “How much time do I have left? Have I fulfilled my life to the fullest?” Reminds me of the end of Private Ryan, when the old man is at the cemetery and asks his wife if he has been a good person. That part brings tears to my eyes more and more as I get older. Or the part in the movie “The School of Rock” when Sarah Silverman’s character asks Jack Black’s character if he “contributes to society”. I find myself asking myself, “Do I contribute to society” almost everyday. The answer is mostly “Well I try”.
I recently came across an album by Our Lady Peace titled “Spiritual Machines“. A concept album – a few tracks are filled with inventor Ray Kurzweil quoting from his book “The Age of Spiritual Machines” about machines, computers and of course, death. Towards the end of the album, there is a track titled R.K. On Death. I have listened to this track over and over again. Thinking about it’s meaning.
“Take death for example. A great deal of our effort goes into avoiding it, yet we make extraordinary efforts to delay it and often consider its intrusion a tragic event. We’d find it hard to live without it. Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it. If death were indefinitely put off, the human psyche would end up, well, like the gambler in the twilight episode. ” – Ray Kurzweil

Turns out the chic who caught herself on fire while “twerking” was really a stunt woman hired by Jimmy Kimmel. Here is the video that starts as if Jimmy got a hold of the young lady to make sure she was ok, and to ask why she posted the video. And of course – what happened to the end of the video, you know, after the fire.

When I show you a picture on my phone, there are rules that must be followed. I have to show you this picture – BUT do not push any buttons, do not by any means swipe to the left or to the right, and whatever you do, do not, and I mean DO NOT open up my Internet browser. Just look at the fucking picture, and give me back my phone. Now is that so hard?
