a disertation I wrote on "class": class is not good, you are wrong. class is evil, class is the devil. My class hit me when I was a little kid and taught me to think bad thoughts about myself. I wish class hadn't beat me so. My buttocks are still bruised, why oh why did class abuse me so? It hurts just thinking about the bane of my existence, class. Class, that demon who stalks me into the wee hours of the morning. Class, that horror who eats babies and sends me nightmares before tests. Class, that grotesque villian who follows me from building to building driving thoughts of fear and agony through my brain. I curse you o vile class, a thousand times over I curse you. A million hexes on your soul that you might burn in hell for all eternity. That you might pay for the crimes you did inflict 'pon me. Death you evil, vile, raunching, sticking, smelling, choking, smothering class. You've broken me.

nothing needs to be said about this except that it was the same for me in my high school. Why is it that schools are so far from what they should have been?

I've been spending some time using zombie and hanging out at Badmoon. They just released a new version of zombie and a plugin development kit and stuff. So I made a toolbar, check it out. You need Macintosh and zombie.

2 things this morning are bothering me. Milk and, well ok, it's just one thing, milk. It's 8 am and I have no milk. How can I eat my captain crunch with no goddamn milk? Which makes me think about group living, should someone be responsible for this tragedy of my milklessness?

So here's the deal. I started this web log a really long time ago because I thought that regular updates were an integrated part of any well designed website. And then I got some rather critical comments about band-wagoning on the 'blog bus. At the time, I thought it was crap, but I gave it a little thought and came to the conclusion that yeah, I guess 'blogs kinda suck. Now, months later, I've decided that yes, regular updates are cool. And no, web logs don't suck, so we're going to try again. And sign Rachel's guest book, she worked really hard on it and it's cool.

I can't remember if I've talked about the Daily Churn lately. It's really cool. It collected urls from an IRC channel and puts them together, allowing you to attach comments and whatnot. Very cool stuff.

I didn't realize how long it's been since I last updated. But alot has gone on since the last few updates. I went fishing with my dad, which was a little akward. I hung out with my grand-parents, which I haven't done in a long time, that was fun. Now they call me all the time to go see them. Which is weird, they weren't that proactive before. Hmm.

T oops 11:21 a.m. Friday, June 23, 2000

ok, there haven't been alot of uptdates lately because I've been spending all my time on the monkeyfist IRC channel. I've been playing with python which has been fun, exciting, etc.

The job hasn't gotten much better. I'm going to see if I can find out about unemployment ... hmm. "Money for nothing, and your kicks for free" sounds like the Dire Straights had something going ... We'll see how it goes.

Oh, and the computer gods have frowned on me. They ate my hard drive, thus forcing me to redo quite a bit of work. Sigh, life goes on eh?

Moral of the story?: (1)Don't be anywhere near a computer when you're drunk. (2)Don't use alcohol to cloud those silly little nagging problems, just deal with them. (yes this all has personal significance, no I'm not going to detail it here)

So-briety. sobriety seems to be rather over rated. Considering my current lack of a-for-mentioned subject, I have a different perspective on the topic. I guess I feel like sobriety is nice, but it seems to impede on my ability to ignore some rather annoying aspects of my life. I'm going to leave it at that. I, of course, have more to add to this, maybe in the morning.

Well, thanks to Dru, over at the misnomer, I have been reamed regarding the economic sanctions on Iraq. I'm spending quite a bit of time reflecting on exactly what the purpose of the sanctions are, and what they really do. And whether or not it's right or wrong and what I/we the people, should do about it. I guess a de-stabalized middle east keeps them fighting each other and selling oil to us to pay for it, which is what we want. I'm willing to give up my car, are you?

I didn't think any more about GM food. If you have any thoughts, or any quality, current, primary information email me. I'd appreciate it. I was temporarily inspired by the article in the NYTimes about the Prince of wales getting stuck into it with his sister about GM food in England. England is really hard over on GM food, they don't have any of it there. Everyone is all hard core. I think its cool that they are that passionate about anything, even if it's just their food. (maybe especially since it's their food) I really should write alot about this.

I'm sick. I'm tired. My mom left for 2 weeks so my friends assume that this is the party house. It's not. It is my sanctuary. It is my castle and my keep. I do not have to share it. I am entitled to refuse entry to anyone. Take your drugs and your alcohol and leave me to my home. I just want to spend some time by myself, to sit, think and write. Is that *so* much to ask? I have some interesting ideas about human interaction. Basically, you can convince yourself to feel any emotion by repeating the words associated with that emotion. So if I want to feel angry, I just tell myself over and over that I have been oppressed and disenfranchised my entire life, and sure enough, I'll be pissed off. But it works the other way too, and between multiple people. If you are constantly telling someone they are stupid, they will become convinced that they really are. If you constantly tell someone they are missed, they will feel missed and consequently, valued, cherished, etc.

I know, updates have been sparse. I'm thinking about genetically modified foods and politics right about now. More tonight.

I'm on a news-bias jihad. Everytime I read an article I think to myself, "Hmm, that's so biased the information provided is worthless." Is this wrong? Am I at fault for being so critical of the media these days? I haven't decided yet, but I don't think I am. I wrote a couple articles lately on availability of primary sources, and this is a reflection of that. There's too much opinion in the wrong places these days, it's starting to bother me. "Just the news ma'am"

It never ceases to amaze me, the things that I find to amuse myself. Today it was a detailed discussion on the differences between verbal and print media. There's a clever essay over at misnomer on the subject. We were reviewing it at the monkeyfist chat. Came up with some interesting ideas. Most of them were contrary examples to what's written in the essay. I highly recommend a discussion at the misnomer, it could be valuable.

arg, I never have phone calls at work, much less customers, and this morning, the phone has been ringing off the hook and people are breezing in like I'm some sort of zoo exhibit and they want to see the abnormalities growing on my neck. Well, it's not that bad, but still.

wage-slave.org Pure left. Interesting read, speaks pretty well for what I think the "people" think, or at least should think. It has interesting ideas on complicated issues such as affirmative action, prison and campaign reform etc. A good read, I couldn't find anything blatantly wrong with it, other then it's only one guy's opinion. It's not an organization, you can't join and act as a voting bloc.

I've spent 2 hours now writing an article for an environmental organization. Ironically the article is about the lack of availability in primary sources on the internet. How everything has been reduced to commentated data bytes. It's a rather interesting article, with a severe environmental undertone. I don't think I feed the environmental activist attitude though ... Maybe I should just shut up over there ... It sucks, they seem to be all excited about the environment and promoting sort of pure environmental news and commentary (ironically) and I'm pitching this political global view. Food for thought

I find it amusing that I get paid to drive. I get one paid hour to drive to and from work. How cool is that? I'm getting paid to do something I have to do anyway. Maybe I'm just pleased with little things, but it sure seems like a luxury. I think youth are exploited by their employers, simply because they don't want us to know just how good it could be.

I've come to the belabored conclusion that I need/want unix. I don't care what kind, I just need it. It's free, it runs the stuff I want it to, it doesn't take kickbacks from Redmond. What more could you ask for?
On a side note, if anyone feels like porting MySQL to MacOS 8/9 it would be most appreciated.

So, I started writing again. Since I've gotten home from school, I've been inspired to read and write, both things I hardly ever do at school. School doesn't really lend itself to learning for learning's sake. I think that's often the case at all levels of education. I'd be interested to hear how other students reading habits change over the summer.

U:This is the new Ola blog. I'm using pitas.com cause I like it. And cause weblogger and editthispage just didn't seem low-key enough for me. Too high profile, "look at me I'm trendy." Anyhoo, not to speak out against blogger and etp, but I just didn't hop on the bandwagon early enough. So here it is.
