The next amendment?

The next amendment?

Isn't that frightening looking? Apparently it's been open for debate in the senate since Februrary: an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution. The 22nd amendment is, of course, the one that says a president may not stay in office for more than two terms. So if this gets passed, (which, by the way, it won't), we could conceivably have a couple more terms of our almighty President Bush, bringing our wonderful, Godly country along on another great stride toward dictatorship. Fasten your seatbelts, ladies and gentlemen, because the next few years are going to be one heck of a ride!

Currently Reading....

Knife of Dreams.
Wow! If you like the Wheel of Time, this is one kickass book. (Start at book one.)

I love

I just figured out that has this nifty javascript thing that will post my most recent bookmarks right here in this blog's sidebar! How cool is that??? Now I must really be going to bed. Except that I don't plan to sleep, because I'm reading the Knife of Dreams, which is the best book ever, or at least right now.

Supplemental Result

I am currently battling the Google plague of "Supplemental Result". For some reason, the website I am currently developing, Half Moon OA Lodge 28, is not appearing as a normal search result in Google. No matter what I do. Could it be that the server I'm using (ACTWD) is crap? I probably should think about switching.

The All-New Apple iProduct

It's a long time since I could laugh at myself this much:

The video iPod is probably crap. Don't kid yourself and buy it.
Get an iRiver.

(This blog is being typed on an Apple eMac using Tiger OS. Fucking Apple.)

And yet I am still seriously considering getting a PowerBook. What's wrong with me?

I am a Mime

Not that I'm complaining or anything, (because frankly I dont care), but why did I get 2 comments within the first 2 hours after putting up my blog (that, and one spam) and suddenly nobody comments me anymore?

Is anyone even reading this?

Will anyone read this, at any point?

If a tree falls in a forest, and nobody is around, does it make a sound?

It's Wednesday. Again. Why can't this week be original?

Wednesday is being so... annoyingly Wednesday. Ever noticed how days have a certain stigma attached to them? Well, I'm not quite sure what Wednesday's stigma is other than.... ughhhhineedsleep.

I'm going to the mall, we're going shopping. I'm a guy, I like shopping. I'm not gay. Not that I'm homophobic or anything either. I'm a definite metrosexual. As an actor and a dancer, a lot of my guy freinds happen to be gay. And as an artist and writer, a lot of my female friends also happen to be gay. So I have nothing against that. I just get that question a lot, and it's very rude to ask someone if they're gay, especially if it happens to be loudly and indiscreetly.

Don't you hate it when you're posting something and you click the back button to check something and when you go forward again, all the text you wrote is miraculously gone? Yes, that's what just happened to me.

A short recap of what I already wrote:
I'm reading Syrup by Maxx Barry, and it's really well written. Its a novel about business law and marketing (very interesting topics, yes, but only for a select few people), and yet it reads like a Dan Brown story or something. I recommend it highly. In fact, I've linked to his blog... check it out at

End recap.

I need to find a good browser to use with my Mac: Safari is obviously great, but it doesnt beat firefox and omniweb in features. Camino runs really fast, but there are a few glaring bugs that make it horrible for me. (I'm using Camino to post this right now, and that's why I lost all that text. Grrr. Probably going to switch back to safari. Damn, beacause myspace doesnt work on safari lately.)

Guide to Civil Squabble for the uninformed

Which, at the moment, should be absolutely everyone reading my blog.

You know, I am really really surprised by the fact that people HAVE read my blog. I mean, there are supposed to be billions of blogs out there. That's what I read in Wired mag, that's what I've heard... and yet I already have comments. Two comments, to be exact. From two different people. And this thing has only been around for 12 hours. Or less, actually, not that I'm counting. Quite amazing.

Civil Squabble has been my pet project for quite some time, but that happens to be quite the problem. Time. It's going to be this great internet simulation game thing.... a lot like NationStates but a lot more visual. Its half-developed and half-coded. I want to have more time to code, but annoying things like school and "The Rest Of My Life" are always getting in the way. Heck, I could be coding right now, but no, I'm typing in this blog.

Man o man, the internet is SUCH a waste of time. We have a love-hate relationship, the 'net and I.

Making Money on a Blog

An open question to all my readers out there:
(Hold on. Do I have any readers? Am I naïve enough to really think that, two hours after my blog goes online, I actually have a readership base? Does that make any sense at all? Shouldn't I just go back to posting on my LiveJournal? I mean, what's the difference between LiveJournal and this so-called "Blogger" anyway? Is Blogger higher class? It's owned by this big web corporation, Google. Does that mean that I should avoid it and instead use smaller groups like LiveJournal? I'm confused. This feels a lot more like a real blog though, so I'll go with that.)


An open question to all my readers out there:
How many people actually make good money on a blog?

...and so it begins.

For the record, I'm not gay. Thus begins my girlfriend-suggested freewrite. I am planning to freewrite for an hour, to see where it gets me. Perhaps I will continue until my parents call me for dinner. It will probably also improve my typing skills.

It's a proven fact (proven, of course, by ME) that being on the computer wastes just as much time as it produces. Basically, its not much better than just using pencil or paper, because although its a great production tool, its also a horrible distraction.

For example, I just got an email and I am going to check it. I will be right back. Hmm, that's funny. Myspace is no longer working properly. Maybe that's just today.

Habits that I want to get in the habit of habiting:
1. Running or jogging every morning, before I go to school.
2. Writing a freewrite or Livejournal entry or Acting Journal entry every day.
3. Whenever I start something, finishing it right then and there, no matter what the distractions are.

3 applies especially to writing a college essay. I've been taking stabs at this monster for the past three weeks, and so far I have not struck gold. Close, but no cigar (how's that for a mixed metaphor?) Aaaah parenthesis! I hate figuring out where punctuation goes in relation to parenthesis! Is it metaphor?) or metaphor)? or metaphor?). or metaphor.)? !?!?!? It confuses me. Okay, its not that last one, Im pretty positive of that.

So Im really into this idea of web2.0... it seems like this is the general direction the world of technology, or perhaps, the entire world, is going right now. But I dont think that I could get a good essay out of it, at least not until I write about it more. Do you think I should start a blog? I mean, my LiveJournal hardly counts:

"Dear LiveJournal,
I had fun today, had tacos for the first time in three years. Pretty excited. Aren't you? Anyway, sorry I haven't posted in forever. Took this shitty online quiz which told me that my body was worth $40,000,000 on or something like that. I find that very uncomfortable. Is taht a good thing or a bad thing? Why do girls get higher cost amounts on that website? Why did I take this quiz?"

There's my grounds that Livejournal is not a blog. It's just random babblings, with not much of a point. I want to write something that people actually WANT to read. Especially people who don't know me. I want to make a NAME for myself on the internet.

Speaking of which, the Google ratings for my OA site really suck. is actually considered a "supplemental result" by google, and I honestly don't know how to react to this. Should I kick and scream, or grin and bear?

I've decided. Im creating a blog and posting this freewrite on it. And I wont be connecting my name in real life in ANY way to this blog so you all can suck it. Just kidding, didn't mean that.
