thats all

madder mortem - where dream & day collide


I am continually impressed by other people and their artsy passions.  For some reason this video inspires me quite a bit.  Take a gander.

good news everyone!

exciting news has just been brought to my attention.  some brave soul has decided to take up arms and pit him or herself against evil doers.  a hero walks among us!  this hero has successfully carried out a blow against PETA members and activists everywhere.  my support goes with this person in their time of uncertainty. they may or may not be aware of the hornets nest they have surely just agitated. 

I cheer for the resistance!!!

only took 2 days

it only took 2 days for me to get sick of my computer again.  its always exciting putting a fresh new install of linux on my computer.  i love how its so much faster than windows.  i spend an entire day getting everything tweaked and updated and looking great.  its an absolute joy for 2 days.  then i realize it doesnt matter what OS i have on here.  after everything its still just a lame computer...

sometimes i feel like something is missing in my life.  sometimes i feel like everything is wrong.  i feel like i have the passion of a thousand hearts burning inside me and nothing to throw it at.  there are so many places i want to be, so many things i want to do.  and here i am wasting away for another long winter with nothing i can do about it.  im dead on the outside and writhing on the inside.  its been such a long time.  are there any among you wiser than i?  id like to know the answers to life.  i live more in my dreams than in the wakeful day.  and thats an awful thing.  i am not content.

...

ill probably delete this in the morning.  i dont think i meant for all of that to fall out of me.  im so tired.

2.20.2010

uh....?

are you kidding me?

one last video tonight

this is fantastic.  this was from 2 years ago by Robert Ballard  it really makes me wish i could get involved.

ways of thinking

meet Physicist Richard Feynman. i totally love this guy. its so fun to listen to his explanations.  i may be crazy but its absolutely fascinating to hear him talk.  this may bore some of you to death so be warned.  this is essentially a simple example of how people can be fundamentally different in how their brains compute information.  i absolutely love it.

2.19.2010

wow

ever wonder what your vocal cords look like?  this is amazing.  ive always wondered about this.

ill be posting more videos.

ive been finding a lot of interesting videos lately.  so im sure ill be posting a bunch more in the future.  here is one i thought was neat.  creative people can make anything beautiful it seems.  my favorite was the airport shots and the moon and clouds stuff.  enjoy.

TED talks

ive seen a lot of these over the years.  sometimes they are quite humorous and fun and sometimes astoundingly brilliant.  ive posted a few on this blog already.  still my all time favorite one was about 2 years ago on mushrooms.  you can watch it here.  fascinating!

and here is one i saw today that was very interesting.  how would you solve the candle problem?  i had a completely different idea.  but i doubt i would have been the fastest to solve it.

2.18.2010

kon-tiki

The scale of the universe

adam showed me this today.  (you have to click play just below the ad.)  there is some bull crap in there but that is to be expected.  i thought it was very cool and interesting.  puts a nice perspective on things.  what got me the most were the wavelengths!  it boggles my mind!

valentines day

this years valentines will be spent eating adobo chicken fired rice and listening to buckethead's latest CD "shadows between the sky".  i wish you all a valentines day full of "action" and camaraderie.

2.11.2010

a couple music statements


  1. Folk music may be my favorite genre.  Im not entirely sure though.
  2. In the form of a true equation.  I give you the following formula.  Indie Music < Power Metal
    To put it very mildly ha!
that is all

Mega catch up blog dump

ok first of all.. watch this.


now that we got that out of the way here are a few other things:


Everyone knows about red bull energy drinks.  but have  you heard about Slow Cow?
I thought this was pretty funny.  Its trying to be the exact opposite of red bull.



ive decided i want to live on a ship like this someday.  it is my destiny.  


sam raimi's new super hero movie will be the shadow.  its been a favorite show of mine for a long time so thats exciting.


ever wonder what Leonardo's job application cover letter might be like?  this is what it says:


Most Illustrious Lord, Having now sufficiently considered the specimens of all those who proclaim themselves skilled contrivers of instruments of war, and that the invention and operation of the said instruments are nothing different from those in common use: I shall endeavor, without prejudice to any one else, to explain myself to your Excellency, showing your Lordship my secret, and then offering them to your best pleasure and approbation to work with effect at opportune moments on all those things which, in part, shall be briefly noted below.
1. I have a sort of extremely light and strong bridges, adapted to be most easily carried, and with them you may pursue, and at any time flee from the enemy; and others, secure and indestructible by fire and battle, easy and convenient to lift and place. Also methods of burning and destroying those of the enemy.
2. I know how, when a place is besieged, to take the water out of the trenches, and make endless variety of bridges, and covered ways and ladders, and other machines pertaining to such expeditions.
3. If, by reason of the height of the banks, or the strength of the place and its position, it is impossible, when besieging a place, to avail oneself of the plan of bombardment, I have methods for destroying every rock or other fortress, even if it were founded on a rock, etc.
4. Again, I have kinds of mortars; most convenient and easy to carry; and with these I can fling small stones almost resembling a storm; and with the smoke of these cause great terror to the enemy, to his great detriment and confusion.
5. And if the fight should be at sea I have kinds of many machines most efficient for offense and defense; and vessels which will resist the attack of the largest guns and powder and fumes.
6. I have means by secret and tortuous mines and ways, made without noise, to reach a designated spot, even if it were needed to pass under a trench or a river.
7. I will make covered chariots, safe and unattackable, which, entering among the enemy with their artillery, there is no body of men so great but they would break them. And behind these, infantry could follow quite unhurt and without any hindrance.
8. In case of need I will make big guns, mortars, and light ordnance of fine and useful forms, out of the common type.
9. Where the operation of bombardment might fail, I would contrive catapults, mangonels, trabocchi, and other machines of marvellous efficacy and not in common use. And in short, according to the variety of cases, I can contrive various and endless means of offense and defense.
10. In times of peace I believe I can give perfect satisfaction and to the equal of any other in architecture and the composition of buildings public and private; and in guiding water from one place to another.
11. I can carry out sculpture in marble, bronze, or clay, and also I can do in painting whatever may be done, as well as any other, be he who he may.
Again, the bronze horse may be taken in hand, which is to be to the immortal glory and eternal honor of the prince your father of happy memory, and of the illustrious house of Sforza.
And if any of the above-named things seem to anyone to be impossible or not feasible, I am most ready to make the experiment in your park, or in whatever place may please your Excellency - to whom I comment myself with the utmost humility, etc.
cool eh?


thought this video was both silly and really fun.  i could see my self running around with a camera like this someday.  here is another video made with the same camera and shot in mexico.  i love the dude with the monkey face.  you have no idea how bad i want to do this.


this is interesting.  the director of district 9 talks at TED about his thoughts on aliens and n such.  worth watching i think.


this next section of my blog is entitled.  scientists still dont know what the crap is going on:

apparently computers are now saying that black holes CAN be created by particle accelerators when particles collide.  im getting tired of people associating black holes with Einstein.  he always opposed the idea and none of his work allowed for black holes.  they are getting away with so much bull these days.

here is an article from this month admitting that they have no idea how stars are formed.  great job out there guys!

here is one from last month saying that the best way to combat global warming is to shoot giant volcano bombs into the sky so that the ash can block the sunlight.  it will only cost millions to research.  i say we go for it!  haha

and the latest news at the LHC is that it will run at half power for the next 2 years and then it will shut down for all of 2013 for some upgrades.  they intend to replace all 10,000 interconnects.  sooo.. that means they will keep dumping money into this retarded thing forever.  who knows when they will get the stupid thing to full power.  i hope someone else does first so they can finally discover that there is no higgs bosson and we can all move on from this.

thats all.  thanks for reading my blog.  as a special thanks here is a 4 minute video of tony jaa doing his thing.  this is also well worth it ahaha
