30 gig video ipod


Bought Miss A's old 30 gig video ipod for 100 bucks. Sore back issue continues. $#&^$%!! :( I bought a dual Roland snare trigger. I had to take it easy for at practice, no sweat or emotion, it felt terrible. Crashed easily to for trip to statesville for 8am gryder side family breakfast.

Tried on ubuntu, meh, could be worse.


Left work 1 hour early to drop off Chucks Xmas present. He seemed to like radio control bat thing. Next I drove home to pick up Penni and setup a new tuxedo a new rental. It looks like I lost 20 bucks on the deposit for the first one. Nice. Then we stopped by the store for milk, cookies for Penni and Tortillas, diet cheese and diet soda for me. Later I Install CNR on my Ubuntu Linux Lappy. It worked pretty well. I wish it worked for plain Debian and Slackware systems, and then there could be one universal package system to rule them all. I think Penni is getting nervous about the wedding. Around midnight, I kept thinking about food and could not sleep so I read a little more of my newer blender animation book. I finally crashed around 1am.

Thursday, December 27, 2007

play the set again.

Wednesday: quiet day at work. The tuxedo I ordered is now unavailable, Drama! Had a good long practice. My back was sore afterwards. Crashed at midnight.

Wake up! it's Crease-muss!

Wednesday - Xmas Day

Tried to sleep late, but Penni was really really psyched: " Honey wake up it's chrees-mas! there is a really funny count down on VH1! wake up wake up wake up, let exchange presents! So i finally woke up and we exchanged gifts. Penni liked her candles, CDs. DVDs, Candles, Massage certificates, and Camera. We drove to Statesville for Mom's side of the family's Xmas dinner. I helped Dad borrow chairs and a table from Church for dinner. Traci liked her PC tower. All was well. i ate too much. Dad put salt in Traci's coffee while she was not looking. Classic. He is the man. I am still on track to hit 188 by the wedding, but it is serious time now.. 3 weeks to go...

"I think copper helps heal those rashes. You should swallow a penny, that will fix you right up."


Covered the Sysadmin chair of Xmas eve, Star balanced, praise Alah! lunch with Kursty as Wendy's my treat. So tired... picked up soda for Penni and drive home for a short nap. We went to Penni's parents house for their Xmas dinner. All was nice.I added Evolution calendar for Penni's Dad's ubuntu laptop session startup. I wish Ubuntu had a slicker calendar applet that had a smaller footprint than Evolution. i ate too much and feel terrible now. so fat and tired...


Penni had to work that morning. We ate at Izzy's, Checked translations, got fitted for a Tuxedo. bought Scott and Phillip Monster brand patch cables for Xmas. The guys were late for practice, Scott was helping Phillip move. Practiced until midnight, watched Kenny vs. Spenny, crashed at 2am


Blurry, Slept late, showered, Make and published GPL skull Icons on watched Death Note and Naruto.


Short practice and band photos. I accidentally ask "What is the hardest core ______" instead of "What is the hardcore-ist ________ " , thus the guys have a new catch phrase. Great.

Untangling kursty's PST files


the big scary new print image was basically a non issue, Thanks our new ever-competent sysadmin. I just had to tweak the monarch models a little and every thing was kosher by lunch. I worked on untangling kursty's PST files for about an hour.

Worked on my boss's boss's boss's PC to 8pm. It was terrible,so many windows updates!!! (i love Linux more that ever now.) and the Audio driver I DLed from Dell caused the system to power off as soon as the Admin logged in. The Owner said he is getting a Mac next time. Nice.

My boss's boss's boss's home PC has a wowfx.dll virus/root kit 3 day after i reinstalled XP. I am going to try to set them up a dual boot system with XP and Ubuntu.

Next on Lifetime, "Why Brian Why..." One mother's story...


covered the SysAdmin chair, ate lunch with my boss. Was a little depressed all day.

The previous day, my mom called try to change my no wedding guest policy. " Why Brian,.. Why..." she pleaded on speaker phone. Penni was like "eeek! holy crap!"... I stuck to my guns but felt bad. I love being judged as a selfish cold hearted person for doing things my way. i love it. I told my friends about it and joked and laughed.

Listed to Tom Wait's "Lost in the Harbor" again, beautiful...

Went to practice, Scott wanted to rewrite the chorus to a song he wrote called "Dramatic" AFTER we recorded it. he used 32 tracks over dubbing guitar and layering vocals. sick. we ended up writing and recording a fast 32-note solo over the "dull" parts. Go Team.

we also worked on a song called"to you from me". at the beginning of the song. The guitar strums were off from the snare hits. Sense there were 2 guitar tracks and the guitars were on time together the snare sounded stumbling drunk wrong. I was so frustrated. We edit the volume on the weird spots to make it sound better. I miss loud fast messy hardcore music. (ha-ha)

Crashed 2am.

"Jamming", like the porch band on the slingblade movie

I sat up a quiet brush drum kit in the living room and played with guitarist neighbor Doug and his friend for about 2 hours tonight. Really nice guys... Doug songs aren't really finished yet. Doug has a good voice, his lyric phrasings are rhythmic and busy but a little drone-y. He is have money problems, he mentioned his pay-as-you-go phone was out of minutes. his friend work 3rd shift do a regular practice schedule with these guys is impossible. I'll just keep "jamming" ( god i hate that word ) with these guys to keep my licks sharp and keep looking for a real 1000watt sweaty complex song structure rock band.

I submitted a new myspace classified ad and answered a few, sending them links to mp3s.... Yup, fishing in polluted river of rock & roll with no rod, just *end blue jam*

Ate too many peanut butter and crackers for dinner.

Hit him, Hit him, Hit him,


Bummed about perspective band mates flaking out. Sad echoy Circa survive songs in my head all day. The kid next door want to start an acoustic rock band. He's got a good voice. We'll see.

Saw a wreck in a kinko lot. Two Nice cars backed into each over. Hilarious. One car was driving very stupidly so i was in a bad mood and actually Cheering "Hit him, Hit him, Hit him" when it happened. I guess Karma owes me a car wreck.

Chuck and I checked out an local inline hockey tournament. It was full of scary good players. Mean skating! No noobs.:/ ate dinner late at Denny's with Chuck.

Don't bring your kids to the movie theater / ever have kids.


Woke up early, had some coffee and checked translations. i started cleaning some drum stuff out of the living room. "Since you have not played in a band for while, could you move some of the stuff, upstairs?" Ouch. So I did it, Cleaned up the PC room upstairs, did the laundry, and then took the dog out roller blading for a while. When i came back in I had a shower and a sandwich with then Penni when to buy me a better toolbox to organize my crap upstairs. Then we went to see the Simpsons Movie. It was OK. There were little kids everywhere. Little Noisy retarded bastards. Grrr. After the movie we went to buy a cover for the little table that is going to hide the 'Traffic shaping PC' downstairs. (god i need a band)

Bad Mood 2007: The phantom menace


"I wish you would open up and communicate better with me."
"I wish I could to murder everyone I see and black the sun out of the sky, Walka-Walka-Walka! =)"

I woke up late. I was in the shower when Penni ripped the shower curtain open and scared the hell out of me. Had Breakfast around noon as Izzy's. I was in a bad mood all day. Penni kept asking why I was in a bad mood, which made it worst.

After Izzy's, Penni took a nap and i dialed in to check Translations. Everything was cool, so I up my Roller hockey gear and went to to the nearby track to knock the ball around. i setup some water bottles as cones and work on my control. I can control the ball turning left better than Right, I need to work on that, maybe i should buy a book, street hockey for dummies.

We meet Penni's sister her husband and Penni's parent as Carabasa for dinner. Penni's Dad was asking about simple red-eye reduction in Linux. he said Gimp was too option-filled and would like a editor with controls ranging between gimp and mspaint. I need to Google that for him.

Watched narruto and then downloaded the new TMBG cd "the Else" from Russian itunes for $1.40. Classic college-y nerd rock <3. i took a long walk around midnight to listen to it. I feel much better now.

Turd Cutter, the musical.


Quote of the week: "Wow, look at the Turd Cutter on her."

Work was ok. I ordered Penni pink roses Again. I ate lunch at Showmars. Darcel's SSI conflict checking has started losing Discharge dates and ssi was actually helpful, giving us the data location on the missing information to forward to the CHS SQL team. Later the Paper bill printing was all messed due to a SSI support person copying Edits for the wrong hospital in our files.

Penni scheduled a 'Card Night' with Cian and joshua. (I used to rock soo hard. Bloody hand 3am drum/band practice, vandalism, terrorism, etc.. but now, 'Card Night'... god i need a band...) Card Night was cool. I burned Joshua a copy an old violent femmes CD. Cian works so hard making food and setting up little finger food dishes and we just eat and get crumbs everywhere. It doesn't look like very much fun for them. We brought Logan with us and he passive-aggressively made the other little dog go nuts all night. We left around midnight, Penni had to wake up early the next day for a weird Registration dept meeting at a golden Coral of all places.

Thursday, July 26, 2007


Wednesday: lunch with miss A at showmars. She just bought a hybrid civic. Worked an hour overtime balancing the worst translation ever. Bought qdobas for penni. Retrieve docs off stacie's crashed pc. Helped penni study math for GRE. Watched pokemon for some reason... (???)

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Cupcake Holocaust 2007

Woke up today with Penni clicking her alarm clock for no reason at 5am.

Penni: "What time it is? my clocks messed up?"
Me: "Honey, go to sleep my clock is fine."
Penni, "Smurgh???
Me: "Honey, go to sleep."

When in to work at the normal 7:30am time today. Kursty saw the Sicko movie too ans cried because her parent are in that same situation. Dana ran the SysAdmin desk held the fort down nicely, Go Team. My Boss was out. Double chicken salad for lunch. CRMC had a weird issue an 3:59:59pm. Damn you CRMC! Came home bought 4 shirts on sale. Ate all the leftover cup cakes in one setting. way too much sugar, nauseous for a while. God I suck, no willpower. Took the dog out for a long walk.

Sunday, July 22, 2007

Penni's surprise party, Chuck's destroyed elbow, and The SICKO movie.


Was able to leave work on time. Drove straight to Chucks to change clothes and play street hockey with chuck, and his friend Matt from Chuck's work. Matt is intense! He skates with no heel brakes. as soon as we set the goal and started up, Chuck goes down on his Elbow HARD. He toughs it out for the rest of the evening but feels weak in his left hand all day. Anna made him sleep with a sling on his arm that night. I injured my right leg and left arm also. I put ice on it all night. It hurt to go down stairs. Penni said I was moaning all night because of my leg. fun fun fun.


I slept late and limped downstairs to check translations. Then left at 5pm to supposedly skate with chuck but actually Chuck, Anna and I where going to Cian's surprise birthday party for Penni. We got there early to help blow up balloons.
Kursty, John, Chuck, Anna, Amanda, Niki, Cian, Joshua, Me, Penni, Mike and Matt where there. Wow 12 people! :) We are loved! The food Cian cooked was Awesome. She is a great friend. Penni need to hang on to her, Big time! There are picture of the whole party crew under PICS at the top of the page. **note, this is one of lesser bitter hateful posts, eh?


Slept to 11am and Went out for Breakfast as Izzy's, There are a lot of kids working on that place. A 12 old kid brought out coffee and water and a 14 year old girl was running the register. maybe it's the inner city versions of cutting wood, bailing hay and feeding cows? good ol' America under age slave labor. learning to sweat and hate. Oh well.

Later, We watched the Michael Moore movie SICKO with chuck and Anna. It was a great movie. I am now worried about being denied coverage because of my yearly bronchitis and that one mysterious blood clot in my leg last year. Penni joked about moving to Cuba for health care. I remember. looking at expatriot sites went Bush won the presidential race. I wussed out. Maybe i will retire to a foreign country. Maybe I can get a job working with Linux or maybe at a call center. Yes, the Future is Bright. :/

Penni tried to scare me today while I was in the shower. I heard her coming and grabbed and pulled her in the shower with her clothes on. I helped Penni with her GRE prep math questions.

Did Yoga yesterday, just me, Ciann and Joshua, Penni was at a job interview. Ciann kicked my ass per Penni's orders. Held a 1/2 push up for way too long. Legs and arms failed, sweaty, unable to balance on one foot. damn.

Telecommunting on the4th,Cianne's Party

This message is brought to you by SunCom iNotes Plus.

4th of july - day off - phone rang at 5am. It was chs operations calling to say the files were late. I had to call them back when i finally woke up. They failed to copy the hipaa ub files took . I massaged translations until noon. :( Went to a penni's yoga friend Cian's party. Made them a mix cd. Everyone was cool there. Tons of great food. It looked nerve racking to organize a party like that. :)

3.7 million dollar mistake, Yoga, and the "Gheyest" book in the bible.

Rough day at work today. 20 days ago a bill job was canceled, thus 3.7 million dollars worth of hospitals claims were billed were 20 days late. my boss was worried was cool about it,That was no comfort, good management prunes efficiently and emotionlessly. emails could be flying around and they may be sharpening the ax as I type this.

at lunch, I made a joke about revelations being the gheyest book in the bible today. Dana laughed pretty hard. But honestly, people who go on and on about "The Beast is a coming' lawd, lawd" or " the world is endin' soon, no need to pay my credit card" are idiots. Maybe it's human nature to want your generation to the last one, like your Senior class was best one ever and they had to tear down the school after graduation in honor on it.

In reality, The world will probably be around long enough for you and everything that is huge and important in you life to fade away. WTC bombing what? who was Nirvana? What was Google? What were Ipods? All gone to dust like old dead dry leaves. *end goth rant*

Penni and I went to a Yoga class that her friend taught. When ever one was supposed to clear there mind and feel the flow on their inner energy all I think about was swirling black and Grey. I felt like everyone's Chi was glowing pink but mine was glowing Black. ( like a cheap anime villain.) ...weirdo. Penni had a good time and i guess it was a good work out. had Qbodas for dinner.

Sunday, July 1, 2007

Street hockey with chuckOrz,

Sunday: slept late. Penni woke me at 11am. Translations actually worked correctly! Amazing! Scheduled to eat lunch at Penni's parents house (Bratwursts and Sour kraut?). We returned and Penni took a nap. Called chuck0rz. We go out and buy street hockey sticks and balls like the weirdos are. We played at the neighboring school for about 3 hrs. Insanely fun. Skating seems easier with a stick. We eat at sushi 101. Very tired and sore.

Mr annoying's coffee cup lid bongo solo!

Woke up a 7am this Saturday. ClickOn crashed satanically hard. I had to manually run a few hospital files at a time. I woke up at 7am to check on it and worked on it for 2 hours. I was late to help my dad put up a huge metal shed. We worked on a big hydralic lift and used a boom lift. Dad cut his hand. The huge metal beams were burning up in the sun. I got terribly sunburned. while I was in statesville the bathroom re-modeler guy came back to recaulk the tub again, Penni supervised. I came home and finished the rest of the morning billing at 9pm. Called the guy about meeting to maybe start a band. ate a watermelon. crashed at 10pm like an old woman. rock and roll.

me verses three very hateful hours in an 80 degree Cubical.

Monday, Showmars with Miss A and Dana. I finally deleted essex's voicemail greeting. It is 80 degrees in the SysAdmin cube. I flaked out on a billjob and had to re-validate 5 million dollars worth of hospital Medicare claims. I had to stay over 3 hours to fix it.
While the bill job was rerunning i checked out the input error with the web portal database. the first line on patient records is coming in with html code on it. thus killing the whole "check for quotes to start the read" idea.
When i finally got home Penni had already ate dinner and was in her pajamas. I took a long bath and listened to a Linux podcast. a caller on the Linux action show answered my ktorrent question about scheduling upload bandwidth. I later finished another transparent CHS logo with Gimp and emailed it to myself.

I keep forgetting to buy the old marlyn manson american antichirst album from the "russian itunes" store. :/ oh well....

I got dad some swim trunks and 2 pillows for his recliner. burned Traci a copy on the new Poison the well album and loaned her my copy on year zero. Drove back to Charlotte. Went grocery shopping bought a watermelon. Created another background image for poor ol' CrazyMcSlowJams hella-report. Called a guy about a forming band. called Chuck, he is using the same bathroom remodeler guy as Penni and I. We met at his place for rollerblading and misc yucks. I'm skating backward better, still shaky with transitioning to backwards on hills or at high speeds. busted my knees good. came home and watched family guy while eating half of a giant watermelon.

Bill job errors, Software Raids, dreams of a dead Neighbor and laptop sound issues...

Covering Essex again today, Local Bill Job A errored out and i had to call SSI for help. A coldfeed job errored out too, i had to work over 1 hour to finish everything. The Bathroom contractor email a quote back too use today. 1045 dollars for labor, not bad.

Napped a little and dreamed our neighbor died. i dreamed we found her rotting and topless in her living room. Ugh! Psycho-analyse that! :/ penni woke me as she was leaving for a massage. I made some coffee googled linux software Raid for a while. Raid seem like a lot of trouble. i will probabily just buy another external drive and copy drive A to B bi-monthly. Penni said the massage was great and she wants one every 2 weeks.

I wanted some Unsane to listen to tomorrow so i when to, a got one song for opening an account. i tried to buy the whole Unsane Visqueen album for 4 dollars but their credit card system was down. :/ Darn Russians!

I noticed the ubuntu 7.4 installation on the laptop loses the alsasound services when you hiberate the system. you have to shutdown completely and restart to have sound work again, it's Bug filing time!

12 hours sleep, noisy restaurant, Drinky the Crow, and another sour pissy Brain...

slept 12 hours last night (Penni woke me up because she was worried)
shoe shopping with Penni
grocery shopping for Penni's parents lunch tomorrow.

Fought with Mom and Traci about the restaurant we were going to for mother's day.

"Just because you make a lot of money, doesn't mean you don't need to consider the people when you are planning dinner at some big expensive restaurant with a dress code!" -Traci

The Restaurant we settled on was packed and noisy. I was in a bad mood. Mom hated her ring. I bought dinner, which was 210 dollars with tip. My parents came my townhouse and my dad watched the "Drinky Crow Show". he liked it :)

a raise, a love knot, Cevin key, and a bad pissy brain.

I got a raise today. lunch with Reid Dana kursty and Karen at migale's. i worked over 30 minuted to finish up the billing. Dana asked kursty if her Celtic-love-knot tattoo was a manhole cover. CLASSIC. I called dad to tell him the news. I went out shopping for mother's day. then dinner at caraba's to celebrate (???)

I feel bad all evening, just silently mad at nothing with a headache . i hate it when I'm like this. i wish i could unplug my brains switch it out with a new one. "Darn, This one is stuck in piss-y mode. I'm glad I have a spare."

After dinner, i started Penni's dvd burning and took a long walk with the dog while listening to Cevin Key mp3s. great stuff, It felt good walking around pissed off listening to uber-dark eclectic horror-electronica.

No, i am a lair...

Essex is now on vacation for a week. I helped penni add the rollins lair video to her myspace last night. Penni got choken on koolaid laughing and had to spit it back out in her glass. Showered and went to sleep with a headache.

Chuck in RollerBlades, Penni in Statesville, and Progress in Blender

Sunday Night, worked too late on blender animation. i finally have a funky little gray gumby looking waving guy. tried syncing my ipod with banshee but i was afraid it was going to copy all my song to the local PC, (i need to read up on that :/ ) i chickened out and used Amarok instead.

Saturday evening i hung out with chuck and anna. Chuck bought some Rollerblades and we skated in the church parking lot across the street from his house. Chuck fell only once, but as soon as he fell a girl and her huge dog came over to small talk and blocked chuck from getting up. Chuck hates big dogs. it was awkward and very very funny. Later we ate at cheese cake factory with finish around midnight. I left my phone at chuck's house and my sweet little Penni-pooh was worried. I burned a copy of Mister Bungle's California Album for Penni, what a great great CD...

the next day I we woke up early with drove to statesville for church, Penni said it was a lot different that the baptist stuff she went to as a kid. I couldn't remember anyone's names at church, it was embarrassing. Penni was great through the whole ordeal After church we went to the famous Captains Galley's seafood restaurant, Penni is used to Charlotte's super tasty seafood restaurants and was polite but wasn't thrilled with the food. she napped on the way back and then we both passed out on the couch.

we woke up and went on a short walk with the puppy. I weighted in at 208 today. damn it.

Friday, April 27, 2007

Bad with names forever!

Monday, I have to show the new support analyst around the building so I made a "study sheet" of department, managers and supervisors so I won't look foolish Monday. I bought a nice fan at lunch to stick under my desk. I've been working on the Web Portal Project a lot today. I can't wait to go out tonight with penni

bad food decisions

Reminder: buy a little book on Chess Openings for Penni. If she read it and i didn't, she would be unstoppable. Yesterday's cashew meltdown has destroyed my stomach. Why do i do this? 40 percent of the pain in my life is caused by bad food decisions. I am truely a fool.

In my head today: Thuggin' love from the boondocks. California is cool to the homeless from south park. Yesterday there was a dixie chics song in there ... Pure torture.

    LaPaz, Overdriven practice recordings, and libphoto hell.

    Ate lunch at LaPaz with Niki, Reid, Essex and Kursty. Worked on OSRs for network access for outside auditors. There's something that i would not picture myself doing at work a few years ago. But digging digital ditches pays the bills.

    Took a nap up stairs with Penni, woke up a 8pm. sat up the electronic drums for for practice tomorrow with the few stands i pieced together. when went out with her friend Tommi and took pictures (see Linux libphoto hell below)

    I mapped out some parts to the new Fran Hammerssongs. the recording are ridiculously overdriven but very charming. I midi-ed out the weird little roll on "Your so vague" with Linux hydrogen. Tomorrow i am going to play it a thousand times while pressing lit cigarettes into my neck. Rock and Roll.

    I had a pot of coffee for dinner (3am now)

    An upgrade broken ubuntu's camera USB auto-detect thingy. (Perhaps i need to stop adding ever repository i can find?) I googled it forever and finally read i needed to downgrade the libphoto version, so i googled downgrading with synaptic and added to a little post on about it to help some poor sob in the future may have it easier. Go Team.
