At about 11;45 pm I got bored; so, I jumped on my bike. In about 2 hours total ride time, I rode this route. Beast, my readers. Pure beast. I made several stopes along the way, including 45 minutes laying on the beach somewhere in Daytona Beach Shores just stargazing. Totally worth it.

OOOHHHHH i guess it's about time I updated, or something like that.

So, to start off, I'm glad I started going to Mai Tai; it is the only place in Daytona that plays some good music. The Well used to, but I aged out last September, and it was kinda weird hanging out at a place with a bunch of high school kids. But Mai Tai is 21+ after 9, so the maturity level is a lot higher, and the atmosphere is a lot nicer. Technically, Mai Tai is a bar, but it isn't like any other kind of bar. Mai Tai just has a very clean reputation, very tight security, and is just a nice place to hang out- they have no cover charge, either, so that makes it even better. Bob, my sensei, works security there. He is the one who talked me into going inside the first time. (He joked with me the other night, saying he has turned me into a bar-hopper.)

I am in a weird place emotionally, right now. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so good at finding out information. Sometimes, I wish I could just let go. But, I guess it's like with Melinda- it will always sting.

I'm seriously thinking about recording a bunch of songs and putting them on iTunes and Amazon for like, fifty cents. I wanna share my music, not make money off it. I want people to listen to my music, and feel the way I feel when I listen to Marty Friedman or Jason Becker.

My other blogs

While it is much too late for a long post describing my first time in over 2 years at a YSA dance, I would like to remind my mysterious readers that I also run two other blogs. My music blog is a totally nonobjective opinion blog about music; my new quotes blog is a daily blog of quotes, with occasional explanations and opinions on said quote. I had planned on abandoning my music blog, but I figured I might as well just update it and see how popular it becomes.

PS those are hyperlinks

Comic Relief

My past few (or several, or ALL) posts have been sad, depressing, and borderline macabre in some cases. So, I have decided to have some fun with this one. Just a few pictures that I've found floating around the internet lately that have been cracking me up.

Behold, a "moral" nation

Let's start off with some song lyrics. This is from Iron Maiden's "Blood Brothers." This is the 2nd verse through the bridge.

"And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned
Not if you're taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burned

We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

There are times when I feel I'm afraid for the world
There are times I'm ashamed of us all
When you're floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad

Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate's own hand."

I am completely disgusted by the way people are still reacting to Osama's death. We should not be celebrating this. We should not be cheering. Glad he's dead? Sure. But if the killing of a human being, and celebrating said killing, is what patriotism is all about than I don't wanna be a patriot; I just wanna love my country. He was an evil man, yes. Justice was done, yes. He deserved his fate, yes. But now that he is dead, this should be a moment of closure. This should be a time of moving on. He was still a human being, and as such should still be treated with respect and dignity. The problem is, we've become a country of hate. He are told that we should hate. Hate in embraced as a cause and creed, as if it was an admirable quality. What kills me the most, is that most of these people who act like this, are Christians. Did none of these people ever read the bible? Where, in The Bible, Book of Mormon, Qur'an, or any other scripture is hate taught? NO WHERE! THAT'S WHERE! Anyone who tells you the Qur'an preaches hate, has never read it, and that's a fact. If someone tells you it tells of hate, ask them them where. Demand they give you a specific passage. They won't be able to. The best they'll be able to say is "it's all over the place" or "well it's in there." No it isn't.
Something else that is really burning my ass right now is politics. I have no taste for partisanship. I Cannot stand political parties or extreme political views, with conservatives being the worst offenders lately. They have based their views on nothing but winning. It's like the lyric from Metallica's song ...And Justice for All "Seeking no truth, winning is all. Find it so grim, so true, so real." They have been in "freak the f*** out mode" since the 2006 and 2008 elections. This wouldn't bother me as much, except people are actually buying this bulls***. People honestly think the president hasn't signed any worth-while legislation. They listen to these hate-mongering blowhards who care about nothing but their own egos and ratings. They play the patriotism card at every turn, and accuse anyone who disagrees as "hating America" or being "un-American." This is such a load of crap. Patriotism isn't a set view of political ideas. It is loving one's country and wanting what you feel is best for it. I get tired of politics. I get tired of people calling me a liberal because I don't have conservative views. I am a moderate. deal with it. Extremism, in ANY form, pisses me off. I hate when people at church seem to think that I don't have a very strong testimony because I don't feel the same way they do. I hate it.

Southern Accents

I am a huge fan of Tim Wilson, and this is one of the reasons why. Funniest man alive.

What an odd dream

Yeah, this one, was odd. And not necessarily pleasant.

It starts off with me at a high school football game. While I'm watching the band, the guy next to me (whom I hadn't even noticed) says something strange that I don't understand. I turn to look at him, and It's Laura's dad. I ask him what he is doing there, and he says he always comes to the local high school football games. He and I make small talk for a while, and after the game he invites me over to have dinner with him and the family the next day. My dream then picks up I am at their house (which is in Apopka, somehow) sitting on the couch with a bear (yes, a pet bear) on my lap. Oliver and her dad are there, as well as Kevin, Melinda's older brother. The rest of the family shows up, including Laura, whom I wasn't expecting to see. There was a catch though- as soon as Laura heard I was there, she wouldn't leave her room.

The rest of the dream was me walking home from Apopka.

Interesting things to note:
Kevin, Melinda's older brother, was nicknamed "the bear"
Laura lives in Dubuque; Melinda lived in Apopka while we dated.

That last post...

was weird. I'm gunna delete it. I think. Maybe not. I'm not sure yet.

I've about had it with conspiracy theorists. My Sensei, Bob, is not one of them. Okay, well he always has been, as long as it involves Obama being evil in one way or another. Well, not he believes Osama has been dead for years. What a joke- i seriously cannot fathom a fact like that staying a secret THAT long. Stupidity makes my head hurt.

Oh, and for the record, "then" is sequential; "than" is comparative.

Osama's dead... now what?

So, where do we go from here? do we pull out of Afghanistan? leave a few behind like we did Iraq? where do we go?
