Christmas Time

Christmas is here and that means we're closing in on the end of another year. For a lot of us that also means we're moving. That is, if you lease started at the beginning or end of a year; mine did. So I'm packing up my huge pile of stuff and moving somewhere else.

While there are a lot of things I'll miss about my old place: the UT Tower chiming, the cozyness, the close vicinity of various shops, I definitely won't miss the construction and all the frat goings on. Soon I'll be living in a house in a quieter neighborhood that's still relatively close to a lot of cool places and also with a good friend.

Other than moving, a lot else has happened this year. I finally broke free from the bondage they call FedEx Kinko's and have found myself a pretty rad job working in the art department of a screen printing shop. I've learned a lot in the six or so months that I've been there in addition to climbing from intern to full time employee in a matter of six or so weeks. I love the people that work there and the company sponsored parties are killer. Sure, I took a pay cut and I don't have any benefits, but I think if I wait it out a few more months I'll be making close to what I made at Kinko's.

Moving on, if you haven't played Rock Band yet, you're missing out on one of the best video game experiences ever. Sitting down and playing with three of your friends on either Guitar, Bass, Drums or Vocals is a shit ton of fun. I had the chance to do so recently at a party I attended. It was originally a Christmas part but as soon as we fired up the Xbox it became a full blown Rock Band party. I'll have to do it again sometime.

It's also really nice to be playing the aforementioned on a high-definition television, which it so happens I just got for Christmas. How could I have already received my Christmas gifts you ask? Well, my family celebrated early because my Grandparents we're in town. Corley and I ventured north to the land of Burleson for a weekend and had a wonderful time hanging out with my family. I only wish I could have spent more time with them.

Anyway, I'd like to wish everyone a happy holiday and happy new year. I can't be thankful enough for all the friends and family I have that care about me. We've all got another year to tackle, 2008, and it's looking to be a killer year.

Pumpkin Party Reminder!

Hey friends!

Just a reminder, this Saturday, October 20th, 2007 at 8:30pm at Corley's Apartment (call for directions), Corley and I are having our first ever (possibly annual) Pumpkin Party. You're invited as long as you know me well enough to know how to get a hold of me.

There will be Pumpkin themed food and fun for everyone! The cost of admission is a pumpkin food or drink or a carving pumpkin (yes, we will be having pumpkin carving as well!). Other fall-ish food items are allowed, but we'd prefer something pumpkiny. We are providing cups, plates, napkins, and eating utensils. We also have 3 or 4 sets of carving tools so please bring some if you have them and we also have some carving patterns if you're not feeling particularly creative.

Please call, email, or text message myself or Corley and let us know if you're coming and what you will be bringing. Items already confirmed are:

Pumpkin Ravioli
Pumpkin Soup
Pumpkin Rolls
Pumpkin Muffins
Pumpkin Pie
Candy Apples(?)
Pumpkin Bread(?)

P.S. If you'd like to improve your chances in the carving contest, bring alcohol!

Hope to see you there!

For those of you wondering, I did indeed get the internship that I interviewed for. I start tomorrow and will be working Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Unfortunately it's not a paid internship, but according to the big boss that could change. Potentially, I could be hired on as part-time help as time goes on. Once I graduate school, if I'm still there, I can be hired full-time with salary. I hope I meet their expectations.

In other news, unless you've been living under a rock the past year, the brand new Apple iPhone is coming out this Friday. Chances are good that I will be getting my hands on one. Most of you who know me also know that I'm an Apple nerd and will probably be rendered comatose once I do obtain an iPhone. It's a dangerous thing buying first revision hardware, but I'm guided by blind faith in Steve Jobs. I have a backup cell phone, so if it DOES break, at least I won't be phone-less.

Other than that there's nothing new. I still hate my job, but at least I'm headed in the right direction with this internship. I just hope it pans out.

General Irritation

A lesson in sociology.

Labeling Theory essentially states that an indvidual will take on the traits of a certain stereotype if they are labeled as such. For instance, if a student is told that they're not very bright and won't make it very far, generally the student does poorly in school. The self-fulfilling prophecy is related to this theory.

Now, let us look at a real world example. At work, I am constantly told that I suck at my job or that this person or that person is better than I am. Granted, all of these comments are in jest and for the most part I take them in stride and fire back my own put-downs. However, depending on my state of mind, I take these comments to heart and eventually I start actually sucking at my job. I feel worthless and unappreciated and stop caring about whether this or that job get done. It's very frustrating and the sole reason I have been looking for a new job. I am not worthless. I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me.

In other news, Mark is in the studio this month recording his grand vision of an album. As far as I know he doesn't have a band and while a lot of people know who he is, I have a feeling that not many people are going to buy his album considering a vast majority of Austin has no idea who he is; in addition to the fact that he's played very few venues. Mark is an amazing musician, don't get me wrong. He's very talented and creative. However, without proper motivation and people skills, unfortunately he won't go anywhere. It remains to be seen if he will succeed. And if he does, that's wonderful. If he doesn't, he's going to owe an arm and a leg to his parents.

On a side note, it really hurts to read about what he's doing in the studio and see pictures of the whole undertaking because although I'm pretty much over it, somewhere deep inside I feel like I should be there too. But unfortunately, I'm not a "serious musician."

Oh well

Yet another temporary loss of sanity

For some reason, I can't seem to get anything done at work. For the past four work nights, things have been so fucked up at work that I have consistently not been able to get jobs done on time for the morning. As much as I'd like to believe it isn't my fault and as much as people even TELL me it's not my fault, I can't help but think that somehow if I would have done something differently, everything would have been done on time. It's extremely frustrating to have my managers come in in the morning and be pissed that jobs aren't finished. I just wish I could figure out what in god's name I'm doing wrong and fix it.

As if that weren't enough, I was unexplainably depressed for most of my weekend and even managed to have a panic attack on Friday that ended up with me walking ten miles in sandals. I have yet to recover and don't really feel like I will for a while. My life feels like it's coming apart at the seems and while I run around trying to re-stitch parts of it back together, other parts come further undone.

On the bright side of things, I finally managed to get my apartment arranged the way that I've wanted it. On the whole, I feel more settled and it has helped me to regain a little bit of groundedness and sanity. Corley helped with that and I am tremendously thankful.

I know I promised at the outset of this blog that I wouldn't write sappy, depressed shit, but it's all stuff that I really need to get out of my head and onto paper or in this case screen. So in other words, I'm sorry. Thankfully, there's only like three people that read this so I'm not offending too many people.

Gunpowder, Gelatin, Dynamite with a laser beam.

The cloudburts thunder in your ear

How appropriate. I sit down for lunch with my laptop and press play on iTunes and what should come on? Here's that Rainy Day. A version featuring Stan Getz. I'm not sure how many of you have heard of him, but he's a phenomenal saxophone player. It sounds like he's barely blowing into the sax it's so smooth. When I briefly played saxophone, I listened to him a lot completely enthralled with his sound. Definitely a good choice considering how stressful work is this evening.

Car Trouble

It's times like these that I really wish I got into cars growing up instead of graphic design.

If I had, I'd be able to do most, if not all, of the repairs on my car and never have to worry about whether or not the repair shop I'm taking my car to is trustworthy. In addition, I've always wanted to know how to work on cars because I love working on mechanical stuff. I'd be able to buy a rundown hunk of junk 1966 Catalina and get it up and running. Or buy that Delorean I've always wanted and keep it running.

The Q suggested that after I get my degree in Interactive Design that I consider going back to school for automotive repair. I think I might just do that.

Every morning I get off work, I feel tired; exhausted even. What I don't understand is that I'll go to bed, and wake up five or six times sporadically and not feel rested once I finally get out of bed. It seems to me that if your body is tired and you don't have to get up, you'll sleep. Apparently that's not the case. I'm sure it has something to do with the sun shining through my window and my circadian rhythms being screwed up. Damn those circadian rhythms and all their circadian rhythm-ness.

Worst of all, I keep having dreams about work. I'll wake up thinking that 100 comb binds are due in 15 minutes and be all freaked out until my brain catches up and realizes I'm half-naked, lying in bed at home.


By the way, if anybody has any leads on a weird and/or wacky job or perhaps some sort of design job, please, by all means, let me know.

I'll choose my own shit scene.

Well, Apple finally got around to uploading all the photos for their Insomnia Festival. I guess they did it a couple hours ago because their server is so slammed I can't even log in to vote on my own submission. Here's the link: Outside Chance.

If you decide to vote on it you'll have to set up an Apple ID here. However, if you've ever bought an iTunes song or bought something off the online Apple store then you already should have an Apple ID and only need to login to vote. If you can't log in today, the voting last until the 14th so you have some time. I'd really appreciate it if you guys could send me a little love. Even if you only want to rate it one star, that's more than I've got already.

An oldie, but a goodie

I was searching on google a few weeks back. Words of the day were my name, The Q's name and aNoobia. I always like searching aNoobia because it's a word I created in high school that I pretty much use for everything. Seeing as how it's pretty unique I get very few hits and they're usually all related back to me.

In doing so, I found an old blog that I had totally forgotten about. I thought I had deleted most of my old blogs due to their depressing and retarded content, but I guess I missed one. Anyway, I just got done perusing all of the entries on that particular blog and realized why I deleted all the other ones. It's full of whiny, high school crap and I am ashamed that I ever wrote it. I understand that it's okay that I wrote that stuff because it's how I was back then and I've changed since. Still, it's embarrassing.

Time for class.

But I glow in the dark and I won't sit still.


What a really boring night. I haven't had a night at work where there was nothing to do in a looooooong time. I am now reminded of how much it blows.

I guess it wasn't all bad. My coworker and I decided to make shields, swords, and helmets out of cardboard. It was interesting to see our different styles. I tried to keep mine consistent and I think I accomplished my goal. I'll bring my camera to work tomorrow night and take pictures so you all can see what we did with our time at work.

You all might remember a few months back when I entered the Threadless competition. I didn't win. No worries, I still got a laptop which was my intention by entering. I have since entered another contest: The Apple Insomnia Photo Festival. Basically I was given 24 hours to shoot one photo that I felt best represented the word growth. Unfortunately I cannot post it here due to the rules, however, in a few days it will be posted on Apple's website and I'd like to ask all who read this to please go vote upon it.

I know the prize is a MacBook Pro and yes I know I already have a MacBook, but I don't have a MacBook Pro. Besides, if I were to win, I'd end up giving The Q my old MacBook so she can have a nicer laptop, and she in turn would give the iBook I got her for Christmas to her sister. So it's not like I'd be keeping two laptops. That's just ridiculous.

I'll understand if you don't vote on my picture. I'm sure there are much better photos that have been submitted, but I'd appreciate your support.

Video game moments

Today after class, I walked into my apartment and had an Animal Crossing moment. In Animal Crossing, if you haven't played in a while, walking into your house sucks because it's completely infested with roaches.

Now, my apartment is by no means infested, but a roach did scuttle across my floor when I switched the light on. I really had to pee though so I grabbed a nearby cup and slammed it down on top of his ass to keep him incarcerated whilst I relieved myself. Once I finished, I returned to the cup and proceeded to swiftly end his little roachy life. I really hope he didn't have any kids. I'd feel bad if I deprived a roach dad of his roach children....Nah.

Tonight at work has been tolerable. No messes to deal with. Ron the Xerox technician and I exchanged music. My Black Keys for his Grand Funk compilation. A fair trade if I do say so myself. I haven't listened to Grand Funk Railroad since summer break in elementary school with my dad. Certainly brings back memories.

Not much else to report. The next 24 hours will be interesting weather-wise. We're in for a nasty bit of stormage. Maybe even some tornados. Tomorrow night at work will be interesting.

Oh, and if anyone has $20,000 they're willing to part with, there's a sweet 1962 Cadillac for sale. There's another one for $4,500. Not as good condition, but still pretty rad.

I'm getting closer to my home.

No matter how many times I explain something to my fellow key-ops they never learn.

I try to teach them how to run jobs more efficiently to lessen the amount of work that our auxiliary workers have to do and they never do it. In the end it just slows everyone down. It's sad because it doesn't even require that much effort. Ten minutes of extra work for a key-op could potentially equal hours of work saved on aux. The math makes perfect sense to me. I suppose it's a good thing I work a 12 hour shift. At least I can go home knowing that half of the days work will get done more efficiently.

Now, I am certainly not saying I am a better key-op. Most of the people that do the same job as me are way more experienced. I understand it's tough to break habits. But seriously, ten minutes of work to save a few hours? I just don't understand that. Hopefully some day my ideas will stick, until then I just have to shake my head every night I come into work and am bombarded with mass piles of auxiliary.

Hey blenderhead, they're starting to ask questions

I can't begin to describe how wonderful it is to have fridays and saturdays off again. I actually have some sort of a weekend now. I got my grocery shopping done AND I finally washed my dishes. Then entire collection. They've been sitting in my sink for almost a week now and the bowl that had previously held coleslaw had begun to create it's own atmosphere. The next step would have been multi-cellular lifeforms, but I destroyed any possibility of that. Now I know how God felt when he washed the earth of all the sinners with 40 days and nights of rain, only in a much smaller amount of time.

On the menu tonight we have a showing of Hot Fuzz with a large group of my friends. Ten of us will hopefully be laughing until we puke in the next couple of hours. In case you weren't aware, Hot Fuzz is a movie done by the creators of Shaun of the Dead. An extremely funny movie billed as a "Romantic comedy....With zombies." I'll let y'all know how Hot Fuzz is when I get the chance.

In Swamp Chicken news, I posted some new pictures of us on our MySpace: We Are Swamp Chicken! Bruh and I had way too much fun with the iSight camera on my laptop. Check it out though.

Heaven smiles above me.

I came to the realization yesterday that I really don't get out enough or do things to further my knowledge. As soon as I get home from work or school, I stay there. I sit on my couch and play video games or watch TV and I don't play around with Photoshop, Illustrator, or Flash like I use to either.

So in addition to the realization came the solution: Get out more. I live in West Campus for crying out loud. There's a million and two things to do within a five mile radius. I started my new path by venturing over to the local starbucks, sitting outside and smoking cigarettes whilst drinking coffee. It felt really damn good. I even had my laptop with me to mess around with illustrator a little.

Now I'm at Starbucks again; a different one. I know I've already been to the same place twice, but I have to start simple and work my way up. It feels good to be away from my stuffy apartment. It'd probably be a better experience if I cleaned the place up and did the dishes, but that's besides the point....

It'd still be stuffy.

One light, one mind, flashing in the dark.

Head On

Compared to last night, tonight at work is at the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Yet it's still frustrating. God damn perfect binder....

I designed a business card for a friend of mine. It's funny, the man has been trying to get a business card together for almost a year and the whole time I told him I could do it for him but he never listened. He wanted a really fancy card printed on mylar or some other translucent material. He contacted me last week about it and agreed to do it. He told me what he wanted and I threw something together. Lo and behold he liked it and now I've got it all nicely printed out and ready to go. Here's what I did:

He wanted a grip load of stuff on it and at first I thought it was going to be a really busy card. But I used all that education I've been getting at ACC and incorporated all the elements he asked for and some he didn't. I'm pretty happy with the end result. If you like what you see and you or someone you know needs a business card or something else, let me know and I'd be glad to help.

Along the same lines, a girl in my sociology class was recently browsing my myspace pictures and really fancied my "Art Deco" picture I did. So much in fact that she asked me if I'd do it to one of her pictures. Networking is a great thing.

My rehearsals last for hours and hours, with diligence I have been blessed.

Late Night

A little over half-way done with my first graveyard shift since three months ago. Now that I have food in my belly I think I can make it the last six hours.

Working graveyard I don't have anybody distracting me and I can really bust ass on all the jobs. I'm probably going to burn myself out if I keep going at this pace.

Oh, and in case you need someone to talk to between the hours of 9pm and 9am on Sundays, Mondays, or Tuesdays, I leave my iChat open so feel free to bug me. I'm sure I can offer some keen words of wisdom between running machines and doing auxiliary work.

Yes, I am relieved to know I'm not a golem

Some douche bag decided that it'd be funny to destroy some of the plants I've been growing.

The Q bought me three little starter kits of marigolds. They came with seeds, a little pot and a pellet of soil that you added water to and expanded. I grew them in their little pots until they were about three inches tall and then transplanted them into some bigger pots and set them outside to get better sun and hopefully bloom. They were doing pretty well until last night. The Q and I went to Kerbey Lane for dinner and upon our return home, the marigolds were still there in their new homes. Later, I went outside to water them before I went to bed and they were destroyed. Someone had ripped them apart and left little stubs.

Needless to say, I was pretty pissed. Who the hell does that? As I fell asleep I pondered this question. Either some drunken buffoon thought it'd be funny or someone maliciously attacked them in order to enact revenge for something I may have done.

Now I am by no means a bad tenant. The worst thing I do is practice with Bruh on Saturdays. We don't play past nine or ten and we'd happily reschedule if someone were to knock on the door and ask. So I came to the conclusion that whoever did it, did it because they're a douche bag and don't care about other people's property.

Though my flowers are ruined, I am optimistic that they will rebound. I'm also glad that they decided to fuck up my flowers and not The Q's bike, Chloe. It's a nice bike and I'd hate to see it ruined because of something I did.

Other than that, things are cool. I'm starting my new shift tonight: 9pm-9am, Sunday through Tuesday. I'm excited and nervous. I've thought the whole thing through and I'm fairly certain I won't die of exhaustion this time, but I wasn't able to sleep all day today, waking up at about one. This is mostly due to the fact that I worked the remainder of my day shifts yesterday and don't have any time in between to fully acclimate myself to third-shift. Tomorrow should be easier.

Wow. This is the fourth post in a row for me. Stranger things have happened I guess.

For the benefit of Mr. Kite, there will be a show tonight

Sunday, April 15, 2007


Working for a big company definitely has its perks. Once you've been with the company for 90 days, you get access to lots of discount programs. One of which I decided to partake in. I can get t-mobile hotspot service for half the cost giving me unlimited access to all the t-mobile hotspots EVERYWHERE. This is definitely a good thing. Whenever I'm at work I can stay connected and not have to worry about getting in trouble for accessing stuff on a company machine. Or I can go to the local starbucks and drink coffee while I'm working on homework or even work on stuff if I'm traveling to Michigan.

In signing up for t-mobile, I finally was forced to figure out my budget and what I can and can't afford as far as bills go. I've got my bills scheduled in iCal on my Mac so I know readily when things are due. This is also a good thing.

I've always had problems with money. As soon as I get some, I immediately want to spend it. I've never saved more than 800 dollars. And when I have, I usually spend it quickly. Take this laptop as an example. After purchasing it, I've realized that I really need to start controlling what I can and can't buy. It's an important skill to have.

I know you guys don't care about that kind of stuff, but I'm on break at lunch and I'm bored. I just thought I'd share.

You never give me your money. You only give me your funny paper

Same ol', same ol'

I know you're all pretty tired of hearing me go on about laptops. Like when I got my first one; the iBook G3 and now the new Macbook. But I'm still just stupefied at how great having one of these is. Here I am, sitting outside in the absolutely gorgeous weather leeching off of the hotel across the highway from work. You couldn't do anything like this 15 years ago; hell, 10 years ago. Technology is a wonderful thing.

Work has been interesting today. Ben brought in his iPod and his new Apple HiFi I talked him into buying and we've got it plugged into a TV watching Stranger Than Fiction. It's hard to work when you've got a good movie playing. Nonetheless, working I am. The machines are running much better today since the air conditioning has been fixed. For those of you unaware, moisture is a production operator's worst nightmare. When paper gets slightly moist it refuses to be run through a machine and cause major head aches. Today, that is not the problem. Today the problem is the fact that rubber is not invincible.

As stated previously, the weather outside is beautiful. If you don't work today, or you have time to take a break, step outside and enjoy it. We won't see weather like this for much longer. All we have to look forward to is five months of unbearable heat, broken up by maybe a week, at most, of rain. So go play some frisbee golf, go biking, drink a beer, whatever. It's nice.

Wash me clean and I will run until I reach the shore

Hot Diggity Dang!

I don't know what it is about laptops, but they always make me feel like writing in my blog. A shit-ton has happened since the last time I updated. I didn't get the job that I applied for. I applied for another job in addittion to that one and also did not get it, but I did at least get an interview. I'm bummed that I didn't get that one because the boss was really cool. Hell, he even called me back like he said he would. How weird is that?

So I spoke of a laptop. As of today, I finally have my hands on a Macbook. It's not a black one, but it's just as fast. It's super neato keeno weeno and I love it. Photobooth is so much fun to play with and having a laptop with wireless internet is nice too. A lot of you probably think I'm nuts for buying one and you're probably right. But what's done is done and it will definitely help me in the future.

Swamp Chicken posted three new songs on Myspace. If you haven't checked us out yet, we're at We played our first show of sorts a few weeks ago at a friends party. Surprisingly, we were well received. I was very pumped.

Other than that, the only other new thing is that I'm switching back to third-shift at Kinko's. I'll be making more money and I'll have Fridays and Saturdays off again which will be SO nice. I'm very excited.

Outside the world, out there you don't hear the echoes and calls

It's been a long time since I've rock and rolled

I've had a lot of things that I've been meaning to write about. Hopefully I can remember them all.

First of all, as some of you may know, I'm keeping the music alive and well by starting a band with one of my best buds Bruh. We're called Swamp Chicken and we're all about making music and having fun. It's just drums and a guitar, but that's all you need. A lot of our material is really goofy, but I think people will really enjoy it. I'm having a blast with it and hopefully you will too once we start playing some shows at the end of this month or sometime in April. Check out our myspace at We posted a song on there. We did it in about 30 minutes and it's really just a result of me trying to learn how to use Garage Band.

Career-wise I could potentially have a new job soon. I applied for a Graphics Designer position at a furniture company. I assume I'd be designing promotional materials as well as internal stuff. I sent in my resume today and now I'm just waiting for a reply. Should things actually work out I will have finally obtained a career in an industry I actually want to work in. Admittedly I am a little worried that I might actually get the job and then be completely overwhelmed. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's hard not to when I might get a job making four times as much as what I currently make.

I received, in the mail today, the most kick-assiest of shirts. It can be viewed here. I love Deloreans. I love Back to the Future. I think, as my best friend put it, this shirt sums up my existence.

Last month, Corley and I celebrated our one-year anniversary. With the exception of the cumulative two years I spent with my last girlfirend, this is the longest amount of time I've ever spent dating someone. And the amount of time continues to grow with every passing day. I am at the same time amazed and happy that I've found another human being that I get along with and don't mind seeing every day for a whole year. The most amazing part is that we haven't had a single fight. She is a good woman. An angry woman *wink*, but a good woman.

Finally, if you've never heard shit hot music, you should go see Bruh's band the Vermicious Canids:

Pardon my dust

As you can see, I changed the colors around on my blog. It's nothing permanent, I just wanted to see if I could edit the style sheet on my blog successfully. I did it in Dreamweaver, but I'm not sure I want to go about it that way. I'll mess with it more tonight.

In other news, I submitted a design to Threadless. I'm sure I've already told you, but I really need everyone's support in order to win this. You can check it out here:

Pardon me for being rude

In Fort Worth at the moment. Had to drop in on the rents to pick up housing supplies. Yes, that's right, I found an apartment. It's right next door to my best buddy Nick. So convenient! For the past two weeks I've been staying at his place and soon I'll be staying about 15 feet next to it. Weird.

Driving up here and hanging out have profound effects on what I tend to think about. Three hours in a car and quiet nights outside of your comfort zone tend to do that. I've noticed that I tend to get very anxious on the eve of leaving Fort Worth. Unfortunately the eve of leaving also happened to be the day of arrival so I've been pretty anxious all damn day.

Like the title says, I apologize. Not necessarily for being rude, but just for babbling. There are things I could blog about, but it would only benefit me and not you, dear reader. However, it is nice to sit and type. I need to do that more.

Which reminds me, I may have said this before, but today I revisited my desire of acquiring a domain name again and setting up a portfolio. I decided that in addition to the portfolio I could set up a space to blog from and display pictures I've taken on my camera. It probably won't amount to anything other than an idea, but one never knows.

every time I look in your eyes, everyday I'm watching you die
