I will make you hurt.

Listening to some Johnny Cash lately.



Stuff keeps interfering with my training. Stuff in the evenings and such. Social stuff. I thought I'd get in on Saturday, but had to be places and do things early enough in the afternoon that I couldn't be sure of getting back in time to shower and whatever if I went to the gym when it opened at 10.

Want Teh Wife to read this article: http://www.hulver.com/scoop/story/2010/8/8/3596/70449 . One of the reasons I'm quite serious about wearing life jackets and not drinking on boats. Stuff can go terribly wrong on boats in an instant. Not that I've been on a boat in a long time.

Watched "The Trouble with Tribbles" last night.

I thought I had some useful extensions for Firefox installed on Teh Wife's laptop, but didn't, so I added them. Just simple ones like a multiple tab handler and an adblocker that weren't on there already. But this got me thinking: what Firefox extensions are truly necessary? I'm not up on the latest developments in that arena.

Spending money on leisure rather than stuff produces more happiness. Experiences are better than things in terms of happiness. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/08/business/08consume.html?pagewanted=1&ref=general&src=me

I remarked the other day that space travel will be tremendously painful. Here is an article I just found on it: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/08/books/review/Lord-t.html?partner=rss&emc=rss This is pretty much the only planet we've got. We'll never make it outside this solar system. Period.

And then there are trends that make every movie look the same: http://www.cracked.com/article_18664_5-annoying-trends-that-make-every-movie-look-same.html I especially find "ramping" and the color thing to be very annoying. The blue and orange thing, though, is also a lighting thing.

I suppose it's time for lunch.

looks like an awesome book.

Space is pretty cool, but I'm not a fan of putting people up there. It ends up being more of an engineering feat, than a scientific survey.


Cash's last album is unbelievable by lm (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Aug 09, 2010 at 05:56:46 PM EST
Well, by last album, I mean last album released when he was alive. Usually, I like Johnny Cash songs better when others cover them but the originals on American IV are friggin' intense and with the covers, he proves that's he's far better at covering other people's music than anyone has been thus far at covering his.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.
