3:29 pm - Mouse Fitzgerald
From Wikipedia on 12 Oz Mouse:

"The series concluded its initial run on Adult Swim on December 18, 2006 with its twentieth episode. However, the plot was left unresolved. It was later revealed that, in February 2007, production would begin on additional episodes for internet distribution on the Adult Swim Fix."

If you follow your Google to the "Adult Swim Fix" you will find premiere episodes of the Tim and Eric Show Awesome Great Job! (that's the creators of the ridiculous show Tom goes to the Mayor), Saul of the Molemen, and a lot of other good stuff.

No 12 Oz. Mouse yet, but hell yes to its return in net form.

A sharpie, a monitor and a new job. All related to one another, but how? A hint: the answer involves the word "desperately"

10:50 am - something you probably don't know about my life at present
I need 2 AA bateries and a stack of DVD-R+s, and my need for one is completely unrelated to my need for the other.

I could kiss Professor Madison. All this semester we've been swapping stories of eviltry, and here he goes at the end giving me an undue extra 0.02 points to elevate a cheap 3.0 B+ to an exquisite 4.0 A-. I've had Professors in the past screw me over 0.01 point, so 0.02 just warms my heart. I feel like salsa dancing. And so I am.

current mood: cheerful

9:30 pm - car troubles
My car broke down. If it's the engine it could cost too much to fix. So I've been playing with the idea of seeing what I can get for it/its parts. I don't necessarily need a car, Clemson is such a tight place it would be easy to get around on foot or with a bicycle. And I can just bum rides from Joe whenever he's going home for the weekend. The money I'd save on gas/insurance/maintenance would be helpful. No car could be nice, would force me to plan a little more in a completely different way. My dad says he can rent a trailor and pull it to his Shady Mechanic, though, so it doesn't look like I will be without a car. *sigh*

Greg's birthday was nice. He and Ryan got a new Hookah, so they gave me their old one. Greg said he and Ryan would probably stay in NC another year, so my worries of him moving off to California and me not seeing him but once a year are temporarily assuaged.

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and I think things would work better this time. It is up to her though, and she's got her own reservations/nuances to work out. Greg advises I look at the positives and worry about the negatives only when they arise. From this vantage point in time, looking back and looking forward, I am confident in this decision. I am sorry for being an ass/jerk/source of pain for others.

I really can't wait to move. My apartment has gotten so stale and I'm ready to go through all the shit I've piled away and sell it on ebay/burn it and start anew. I need more space and less stuff to take it up. Getting a pet has been on my mind for a few months now. At first I wanted a Pembroke Welsh Corgi (like the data dog, Ein, from Cowboy Bebop), but I figure I'll start out small and get a couple of rats and some fish. I read that rats are pretty smart, so I hope to experiment with them a little bit - teach them mazes, test their comparative abilities, all that jazz - over the summer.

Man, what a crazy day. I've got so much homework to do too, so many obligations over the next week, three exams to prepare for, one I think will be cumulative. Despite this, now is probably the best time for my car to break down. If I'm going to make big changes in other parts of my life, I might as well make a big change in this one.

All this Greg visiting/adventure has put me in the mood for some Cowboy Bebop. So Cowboy Bebop I will watch.

3:58 pm - pistol opera
Computer is begging for the hammer, with the constant droning, loud fan, yuck.

Been in a wierd mood lately, thinking forward. Exams are in two weeks, but these lazy, pollen-full spring days are taking their toll, encouraging a reckless abandon regarding all things formal education.

I will be so happy when the summer is here and I can sit around and watch Home Movies from rise till set. For the first couple of days. Then that will probably get boring and I'll piddle around. When I tire of piddling I'll probably cycle through the usual list of short-lived interests; cooking, reading, art, craftwork of some sort, etc. and so on.

Being disenchanted with these pursuits (approx. 2-3 weeks), I'll crawl out of my hole and scour the wasteland that is Clemson for friends that have survived the exodus.

So that's the next few months right there.

This weekend mom and I drove past what seemed like an endless sea of decrepit houses and shells of former industries whilst visiting her parents. Fairfax is like an oasis compared to the tiny, dying towns that surround it. If one should crave a thought provoking, inverted look into the future, they would be wise take a drive to Allendale County.

While in Fairfax we ate miraculous food, napped a lot, sifted through old photographs, and played oldies combining our respective musical talents. I saw a lot of photographs I'd never seen before, which helped to put the scattered stories my grandfather tells into perspective, especially regarding the war.

My sister, after getting terribly upset, finally decided on College of Charleston to be responsible for her future education. She'll have three uncles to look after her (and vice versa) and I am certain the violin program there beats out Clemson's without even trying.

And that's about it. Oh, and the position I'd hoped for at Moe Joe's has been filled. So yeah, Ransome for hire: cooks, cleans, paints, fixes, all that good stuff.

The summer can be dull at times, so in cases of depressing, spirit-sapping boredom, rent Pistol Opera. It is... well.. it is.

10:51 am - robot turtles don't say "ribbit!"?
There's a time for moments and a time for telling stories. Last night was the latter. I just wish I'd had some to tell. Or, even moreso, that others had more to tell. Or that there was a consensus on how to go about the telling. Or a consensus to tell at all. I want to hear more about foreign places. Every time I hear about foreign places I get all excited. The world just seems... bigger. And I don't care what the girlfriends of the sweet guys say, bigger is better. Thanks to Jess it was a fun night, and Rocky Horror never seemed more entertaining.

Ah, we the overjoyed. Next semester is going to be quite hellish.

But hey, no Friday classes and nothing before 11 save for on Monday.

Nodes is coming along rather well. Living space for next semester has been arranged. Darmouth looks to be the most promising for Grad school. They have a computer science undergrad/grad cirriculum comparable to the one here, but going through their graduate program will open the door to their Integrative Neuroscience department. Yum.

Speaking of which, last night was one of "those nights" where nothing going on is in context. Everyone was an animal soaking in stimulus, churning it through, and reacting. Focus on this or that in its least tainted form. Trying to trace the firings and anti-firings, but there are too many. And wondering if fish in an aquarium have social tendencies. Some primitive personality determined by size alone. Wondering how difficult it would be to wire a fish...?

Ah, but what lovely weather, what am I doing here? Writing about stuffy nonsense while I have a kite that has this weather's name written all over it. Shameful.

4:31 pm - technopositivism
Taken from the Home Movies lj group:

"I thought you guys might be interested in this: the production team behind HM have a new show called O'Grady, on The N. It's really funny, and you can get a sneak peek at the brand new season starting April 1st on the-N.com!

Watch a special full-length episode of the hilarious animated series on the-N.com, then tune into Noggin for the season premiere of O'Grady: April 1st at 9:30 pm et.


I'm so excited! Though it is only the production team... not sure if that includes any more than the squiggle vision folks. But even if so, I don't have to steal a television to watch it, always a plus. So yay technology!
