There’s a very interesting site that allows you to calculate your ecological footprint. While the information on how much of the Earth we suck up is rather sobering, i found out i only equal about .5 of a normal ecology hogging American! Go me!!! Now, if we eliminated half the world’s population and the rest of them only took up as much space as i do, we’d be on the right track.
Um, maybe that bit about not editting was a huge fucking lie. But, i’m not editting for content, just idiot mistakes that i made! Meanwhile, it apparently takes them a little while to add a site into their active directory, which means all of this has absolutely no effect on my treasured spot on the aforementioned list. And no, i refuse to link to it again at current time.
krisisPM: So, i got a Blogger.
krisisPM: I got it from your evil evil link. It is thusly your fault.
EMP750: You’re setting up a blog?
krisisPM: It’s all set up and running like a fat, sweaty, balding man on the 4th of july
EMP750: then you mean the page will be scary?
Well, torrez.org seems to have my evolution as blogger down pat. Especially applicable are points #3, 6, 10, and 11. Rather than this being a symptom of me being a total web-teeny-bopper like everyone else he’s describing i choose to think of it as an indication that my intentions are limited only by my interest, and my interests know no bounds. Or, i’m a huge web-nerd. Either or, really.
So you want short posts, eh? eh? Well, here you go. This has been the most boring week, like, ever. This morning i was supposed to wake up early and wash cars with my fraternity, and when i found out that the event was cancelled i was actually upset. I intensely looked forward to each day of work, and when i got home (reeking of coffee) the whole world sorta dissolved away to leave me bOred. I usually turn to Shafted in such times of despair, but the scariest ass of all seems to have killed nearly everyone other than MikeCy and JCO (which doesn’t make a big difference). So, in my intense boredom, this morning i created a blogger on my website. For those not in the know, a blogger can turn any two-bit idiot into the owner of the next great e/n site (paradox, anyone?). Blogging allows you to automatically post to any page that you have ftp access to, and it automatically arranges and archives for you. My blogger will be a venu for me to post short musings with no editting or linebreaks allowed at all. Isn’t it hard to picture? So, this short post is being simul-cast to Shafted and my blogger. I’m very excited. Yes, my life is that explicitly boring.
One thing that puzzles me about my aforementioned problem with holding a guitar pick is this: how do other artists do it? One of the main reasons i hold a pick like i do is so that i can mute the strings with the side of my hand. Both ani and peter mulvey have been known to use a pick from time to time and also employ this technique frequently. So, how do they do it??? I’m not referring to any namby-pamby little mute of the string; if you listen to my demo with the bass on your stereo turned up the muting on “world in my hand” and “bridge” will rattle your windows. There must be a happy medium between the idiot way i hold my pick and the awesome thumping mutes i use. >sigh
amesdevil: hello peter darling. hows life?
krisisPM: Life is fair, at best. And not in the sense that it is Fair, but in the sense that it is like a schoolbook’s condition when it is neither Excellent or Good
amesdevil: so, decent.
krisisPM: yes, that word may also apply
