Quick, before i go to bed. I noticed some major similarities in these 3 designs. I just thought i would share. lets see how long it takes for you to find it! A read Blood-ish look, with a collage of characters. Were they all influenced by the same design? Probably. Does anyone really care? Nope. Designers "borrow", big deal. Meh, i just found it interesting.

Speaking of red check this bad boy out.


ps. Go to their site to hear their new single, "Pork and Beans" off of the "Red Album". It's not quite their old stuff, but they are making a solid effort.

Also, i added a Twitter feed to the side bar there ->. I seem to be able to make quick updates there more than i am able to blog. So, enjoy that for now. And if you don't twitter... you might want to consider trying it.

Red is Dead. Green is keen?... (earth day jokes?)

PS. i love thunder.

No Love, Just Heat.

Yesterday i swear it was hot enough to watch birds combust and bust into flames. Today, i suspect is not much better.

Things I've learned about having a dog (Part two):
- sometimes they need to go to the bathroom before 5AM.
- they like to watch you in the bathroom. (everything)
- they help you talk to people.

I have been brought back to a site called Computerlove on-and-off since my sophmore year of college. It's a way of connecting creatives internationally through a site that is a combination Deviant Art/AIGA/MySpace. It has now become less "elite" and more community based. Which is a great change, and being the internet junky i am, it was a no brainer to sign up. Here's my profile. I know, thrilling. I suggest, if you are a creative yourself, sign up and join the party. It's free.

If you actually enjoy my rambling movie reviews i have 2 more to post tonight soon. stay tuned.

The Battle. The Defeat. The War.

Robot Chicken, the crazy action figure stop motion animation TV show is doing a full 30 minute special on Star Wars. Watch this clip and know why i am excited. SUNDAY played over and over again all night.

Upfront. I am pathetic, and low on confidence, so i come to the online communities for false affection because i can't get it in real life. But no such luck. this devils site, i'm in like with you has taken what i have left of my dignity and ground it into digital dirt. However, i am grateful for the people who actually read this blog. So thank you Jenna and Taylor for the confidence booster.

So, last night i was pretty angry. About the normal stuff, of course. I am almost over it now... ...yeah. But, seriously a ton of sleep should supposedly fix everything. After happy hour last night, i took at 2 hour nap, then woke up and watched "Bourne Supremacy" and a partial amount of "Never Say Never Again" (which is not an official Bond movie despite popular belief), played some Zelda, and watched UFO shows until eventually my eyes gave way and i passed out. This morning i slept until almost noon, totaling about 11 hours of sleep.

My plans for today are pathetic at best. I have to take back some movies to Blockbuster, I will probably rent a game in exchange, then i'll come back here and try and fix up the place. I have now made it my effort to have girls tour my pad that have never been here before. i need to look less like a slob in order them to tour the bedroom as well (if you know what i mean). if all works according to plan, this blog's content could take a turn for the worse... or better depending on how you look at it. Back on track, tonight i have plans loose plans for bowling, and dinner. i don't like how all my plans are loose.

loose plans sink ships...

Sad Pixels Make Up My Being.


SInce Heather broke up with me my life has become strange. It's funny, "when one life ends, another begins" the same can be said for love it seams. I learned today that Garth and her boyfriend Aaron are seriously thinking about marriage. To the point where they are looking at rings. Jealous? A little. But mostly excited for them. I used to lead a life that people could I keep my cell phone close at hand, with the pipe-dream that someone will call, but no one ever does. I force out a large turd for 8 hours a day that vaguely resembles a card, and have to call it solid gold.

Conversely, i have picked up where I left off on my internet presence:
- I gave my Blogger header an overhaul yesterday. The rest still looks like crap, but it's the very small first step in the right direction.
- my MySpace got a makeover the other day. just today MySpace changed a couple things. nothing major from what i can tell though.
- facebook just added causes, gifts, "graffiti" and other things to it's interface.

A new one to the mix is "i'm in like with you.". an online "flirting" site. Here is my page. It has a beautiful interface. Pretty easy to use and an interesting concept. Right now it runs slightly slow but that might be because it is still in it's early versions. I was able to get in on the Beta. If for some reason it tells you, you are unable to join, and you would like to, let me know, i have some invitations they sent me. I guess i am still about a half step above online dating.

the constant competition between these communities is hilarious.

one day i'll be happy. but that day isn't today.
