today is my last day of work for a company i have worked with for 6 years.
new things. good things.
time to set things to music.

“We were excited about getting jobs; we hardly went anywhere without filling out an application. But once we were hired – as furniture sanders – we could not believe this was really what people did all day. Everything we had thought of as The World was actually the result of someone’s job. Each line on the sidewalk, each saltine. Everyone had a rotting carpet and a door to pay for. Aghast, we quit. There had to be a more dignified way to live. We needed time to consider ourselves, to come up with a theory about who we were and set it to music.

Something That Needs Nothing

saturday/summer’s over! September 26, 2009

the weather has been absolutely gorgeous after days of rain.

got to see lots of beautiful people i haven’t seen in awhile last night.

i’ve gotten my first week of classes under my belt and all my projects are completed early. short sessions can be tough, but as long as i’m ahead i’ll be ok if anything presents itself later (i.e. job).

i adore my algebra professor who, when going through the syllabus came upon “Scholastic Dishonesty,” said,”Basically, don’t do it. We’ll get angry and choke you out.” He explained word problems as if they were written by Yoda. he danced when someone’s “in da club” ringtone went off in class. he is proud of being “the only professor with a moneyback guarantee” and puts $5 bills on the blackboard so that if you call him on a mistake you get paid. awesome.


i’m poor.

had to take puppy to the vet yesterday because of what appeared to be eye infection. $126 later they give me what amounts to neosporin to put on his eye.

some douchebag hit my car and smashed my tail-light and drove off.  it was far enough away that it was seen but could not see license plate of said douche.


taking the dog to the dog park today. exercising today. reading today. cleaning my house today.

coffee. and basically no spending of any money whatsoever.

my friends avi and james made a vampire movie called NIGHTLIFE a few years back. i went to the first screening at the Hartman house back then. the film has since been in a few film festivals here, in New York, and soon to be screened in England.  enjoy the trailer, and come out to Red7 Tuesday, September 15th to see the show!
