When is this?
So, it seems that the only times I'm here is when I get a bit drunky, put on The Smiths, and get nostalgic.....late at night and alone. Some habit die hard, albeit rarely. I'm still using the laptop I bought while I was working at Circuit City (running Vista even, mad that Chrome won't run), I'm still in Georgia. I would rather be on the gulf coast in Florida, where the family has been since the end of WWII. A change yes, but I have always loved the sea. Lets see, the rundown- still married, still working hard, trying not to get fatter, still.....? Not sure, I've nearly stopped listening to music. For work, I've taken a turn at teaching computer skills at a charter school. Wouldn't have taken the job if the wife wasn't hired first. Fucking kids are mostly terrible. We have an inverse bell curve, lots of great kids and lots of kids that need a lot of help, not much in the middle. We're losing the great kids at a alarming pace. I'm not sure how the year will go, really no idea about the next few. I live in terror as a male teacher, things could go south very quickly on any hint of a rumor. Not making friends with the kids, trust no one. I have to take the certification test to work there next year, we'll see..... Was the shipping and logistics manager for an electronics/hidden camera store before. Didn't miss it for a long time, but starting to. Tried using that college degree. Thinking about a coding bootcamp since I have some experience with coding, we'll see. From Morrissey, 'I think about life and I think about death an neither one particularly appeals to me' is still accurate. I fear for the future. We're fucked, the next generation is fucked. I'm on the cusp of liquidating everything and living on boat. I've remembered why I don't drink like I used to, aside from getting old.....

Moved on from Fark, moved no to Reddit. Still too much text. Otherwise still a breath away from a panic attack. I miss my old house.

Not until the next time.......

Would you to walk or stay,choose to walk away?
5 years? Damn, what changes!

I'm a fan of Everett's Many-worlds interpretation. I'm sure that every living version of my consciousness is happy. The dead ones are still dead....so it goes. A few small changes, would be nice.

Two years, like clockwork
Back home. School (KSU, again), flight school still going extremely slowly. No work, broke, sucks. Read 'Evasion' from Crimethink, considered being an old-school, rail-riding hobo. Miss Athens a lot. Crashed the moped, broke my arm, and moped got stolen. Suck! Found my biological sister, and now I'm an uncle. Got my ham radio ticket after years of thinking about it, KJ4MPT. Not much else has changed. Next post, in Sept. 2012, should be getting married the next month. That's the plan anyway.

Looking over past entries, I needed spell check and to chill out. Quit the uppers, the caffeine pills. Happier than I was. I'm not that happy, but I'm happier that I was. I got a Himalayan salt lamp, a perspective, and calmed down.

Current Mood: amused

Looking back, not much has changed. Apparently.

So, I'm listening to (more or less after three computer/external HD crashes) the same music, watching the same shit on TV (Adult Swim is not funny!) and feeling more or less the same things, and getting 'out of bounds' on Icehouse beer.

What the fuck is this?
1:49 am
This is still here?
So, I logged in on a lark, and I'm a bit surprised that this account is still here.

Me? I'm out of college and I'm a pilot.

Yeah, I'm a friggin' pilot! About time, right?

Anyway, I'm now living in Athens.

........not much else is all that different, other than I'm now sane and starting to mature, but not get old. Played in some bands, lived in California for a while. Worked in a record store (a real one!), was a telemarketer, sold computers.

I still like beer and computers and anime and music and stuff and doing whatever it is that I do best and now I've got a moped (a real one with bike pedals) that I run around on and an iPod and a HUGE record collection and all sorts of stuff and I'm a fu#kn' PILOT OF AIRPLANES HELL YES.


How are you?

Who is still out there?

...and into the void/ether.. ?

I've got almost two year of stuff to catch up on? Damn, somebody drop me a line......., please?

Beach Boys - That's Not Me Lyrics

(Brian Wilson/Tony Asher)

I had to prove that I could make it alone
But that's not me
I wanted to show how independent I'd grown now
But that's not me

I could try to be big in the eyes of the world
What matters to me is what I could be to just one girl

I'm a little bit scared
Cause I haven't been home in a long time
You needed my love
And I know that I left at the wrong time
My folks when I wrote them
Told 'em what I was up to said that's not me

I went through all kinds of changes
Took a look at myself and said that's not me
I miss my pad and the places I've known
And every night as I lay there alone I will dream

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn't so pretty
I'm glad I went now I'm that much more sure that we're ready

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city

I miss LA a lot.

This is a comminque to inform all interested parties that I, in fact, am still alive and of this earth.
Between work and school, I have really no time for much at all.
Back to KSU this semester, to UGA next. School.
Work at AMC Barrett Commons 24. Work.
Jenny. I'm happy.
(You should try and be here)
Study, sleep.

How/where are you all now?

Nick Drake

Please give me a second grace
Please give me a second face
I've fallen far down
The first time around
Now I just sit on the ground in your way

Now if it's time to recompense for what's done
Come, come sit down on the fence in the sun
And the clouds will roll by
And we'll never deny
It's really too hard for to fly.

Please tell me your second name
Please play me your second game
I've fallen so far
For the people you are
I just need your star for a day.

So come, come ride in my my street-car by the bay
For now I must know how fine you are in your way
And the sea sure as I
But she won't need to cry
For it's really too hard for to fly.

Cloths of Sand

Who has dressed you in strange clothes of sand?
Who has taken you, far from my land?
Who has said that my sayings were wrong?
And who will say that I stayed much too long?

Clothes of sand have covered your face
Given you meaning, taken my place
So make your way on, down to the sea
Something has taken you, so far from me.

Does it now seem worth all the colour of skies?
To see the earth, through painted eyes?
To look through panes of shaded glass?
See the stains of winter's grass.

Can you now return to from where you came?
Try to burn, your changing name?
Or with silver spoons and coloured light
Will you worship moons, in winter's night.

Clothes of sand have covered your face
Given you meaning taken my place
So make your way on, down to the sea
Something has taken you, so far from me.

David Bowie

Ziggy Stardust

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And the spiders from Mars. He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just the beer light to guide us,
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

Why any man would willingly live in a city, with its infernal stinks and noises, he would never know...when he could come West......and be his own lord and king and conscience, with no laws except that of the brave and no asylums for crazy men who could no longer look at city life without shrieking and...no bible except this land's language for those who could read it. This was the life he loved, and when the hour came, he would be content to let the wolves strip his bones clean and leave them on the great map of The Magnificent.
