Made this mix for my sister, and put a copy on my ipod for the drive up (back for Jacin... she and pat have no cds for the drive, so she asked me to make her some.. cue this mix.

Thought I'd share it through the interwebs with the new seeqpod business... found almost every song, except some really indie people and all hands on deck pt 1 & 2.

Should cover the whole trip, excepting the traditional bit where Jackson Browne's The Pretender gets played- when we (me, this time) hit the maine bridge.

Leaving so soon! Jace, Pat, and units all there. w00t!



Keep in mind that this is made with my sister in mind.



Have a good weekend, all.

Made a design thats currently in critique for Threadless... It's for the "I gotta believe" contest. I really like the idea, though I know it could be executed much better... and drawn better, too.



Whatchya think?

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The rest of the declaration of independence here. )




I am Proud to be an American


No matter what, no matter who our president is, even if I don't appreciate him, I do appreciate the strides taken to develop our country and make it what it is. It's true, there are many improvements that need to come, but I do believe that we have a powerful heritage, and as a young country are moving along strongly. Be proud. You have the ability to fight for the changes you want. If you dislike something, be a patriot and write, email, or even call your representatives, even the president (I've called the white house.) Fight for the changes you wish to see, don't simply sit back and complain about them, that accomplishes nothing.. take advantage of your right as an american. You don't like the current state of affairs, I don't for the most part. But you do have to work for a new, and better state of affairs.


"We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred is a wedge designed to attack our civilization."
-FDR

Right now I am listening to: Boston Pops - Fanfare for the Common Man

sorry to isolate all the non-americans for whom this is just wednesday (happy belated canada day, by the way!) But i do avoid all things politics on lj, so one day a year shouldn't be too painful.


PS: Relatives's responses to my tattoo: "It's so big!

Okay, and not to ruin the integrity of the post.. but Dad is currently outside yelling at a squirrel. True story.

Summer is in full swing, and this cubs mind is back to the parkour grindstone. I suck at timing things right with the self timer, but I managed to get a few decent shots of the PK training

Right now I'm listening to: Tim McGraw - Somthing Like That (yeah, I killed the music streak, I know)

And you all need to watch this video (Fatboy Slim - Weapon of Choice ((thanks meg for the link)) ) Christopher Walken. Aparently he choreographed it himself, too! It reminds me a little bit of the Since I left you video

Theres some nice spots on campus to try new stuff


I like the stadium


I've got to find some taller walls though



And that was PK training. And I got into the pool. sweet.

Today is moms schools show - Seussical, which I'm shooting for the directors portfolio. Almost forgot about it. Should be a good time.... plus it means I get to go to modern. Fuck yeah - best pizza in new haven... which means best pizza.. period. (Don't you new yorkers even try)



And I got good news from the Kingston Volunteer Fire Department meeting with them tomorrow night to discuss getting involved. W00T!

I apologize in advance for my head being all over the place in this and every other entry recently. I'm working on getting some consistency in place... I think.




Someone uploaded like every Led Zeppelin live concert into some handy linkage

Right now I'm listening to: Between the Buried and Me - Alaska (found the mp3 this morning. good shit.)


Warwick Mall Carousel.


Jamie Madrox!


reflection obsession is back.

And the highlight of my day: going to the library and taking out Software Visualization, Franny and Zooey, and Mein Kampf all at once, and watching the librarians reaction to this combination.

As a sidenote, can someone tell me why the library has 3 copies of Mein Kampf and ZERO copies of The Catcher in the Rye? The librarian couldn't either.

Oh, and since when is there a female Wolverine? X-23.... I was reading the new X-men #33 during lunch cause I hadn't really done the comic thing in a while... and was a little thrown off. I've read up now... interesting. Does the beast look cute and fuzzy to anyone else in this?

It's still beautiful out. I was inspired to make a spring playlist. Its all music you should play. All music I start playing more in the spring/summer. It's 99.1 PLR music. true story. The image of the playlist is under the cut, and I uploaded most of the playlist itself to the internets for yall.

Get the Playlist Here: ClickClickClick

Click for the list )

Enjoy. Feel free to suggest additions. my itunes counts are off cause of the new pc

PK Jam today. Debating whether or not to bring my camera or not.

I'm obsessed with this song:
Duncan Sheik - Mr. Chess

It's a very chill acousticy song. I'd call it "sunday Morning Drive" Music. MP4. sorry all you non itunes-ers.
I like music. suggest to me some bands. Any genre - every genre.

Have a good sunday everyone.

Right now I'm re-watching the music video for Here it Goes Again - Ok Go Just watch it

I have a dream (this is not meant to be a mockery of MLK, btw) But anyway. I have a dream, of getting like, 12 people together. And us twelve people will spread out about every 3 feet on a sidewalk, or on a train and we will, at the exact time put on earphones, and at the exact same time, begin dancing. Not some random dance, no. An entirely choreographed step by step movement,with complex choreography, and immensely cheesy moves. At the same time. Maybe even groups of 4 spread out a little further. Think Community theater musical. We will not be wearing anything special, and we won't walk there together. We will walk their from separate places, stand on our given place, face the street, and await the given signal. And people will be confused. Hopefully they will be amused, they will laugh, and their day will be a little better?

Why?

Simply for the sake of doing it.

So ... who wants in?

Sidenote: Harry Houdini's Box of Doom, the Long Form Improv group I'm in here at PC. The only long form improv group here at PC. has officially begun this year. We're planning on having a show in early October. So .. um... keep all of early October open.

Last night Hebroon came over... 3 hour long game of basketball ensued. Most rules were ignored. it was great. Nora, Liz, and Rocky (Matt) joined. Good fun.

I'm listening to: Reel Big Fish - Sell Out


Hebroon? Oh Hebroon can dunk


Sitting, waiting, wishing


Reflections (cue Mulan soundtrack)


Silhouettes are on my top 20 list.


Snapping Turtle is english for: "Watch out for this sucker."


I just liked the texture

So its been forever since I've posted any semblance of something real.

Life has been going pretty well, I'm officially done with all finals (after having pounded out three 4 page papers in an hour and a half). And I've managed to retain a cume over 3.0- which is a very good thing.

I've been busy since then... I've learned the trombone parts from Streetlight Manifesto's, and some of Catch 22's songs- which brings me to what I'm listening - The live version of A Better Place A Better Time I also discovered that Streetlight will be coming to Providence with Reel Big Fish this summer... I may go.

I've ordered my new camera, which should arrive between the 24th and the 2nd. I can't wait.

I've emailed all sorts of congress people requesting that they go against the FMA. I'd suggest that you do the same through the HRC OR Through direct email. I've done both. The constitution is supposed to go against discrimination, not support it, no matter what your religious beliefs are, you must remember that the US is not a religious institution... its actually supposed to be a separation of church and state.

On a related note, I was chosen to be a commentary in one of the recent Cowls, supporting gay marriage - the article is here- its not the best written, I wrote it in the ten minutes before the comp lab closed, but i did my research. Read it Here. It's a response to this commentary: Here

Okay Sociopolitical rampage over. The Long Form Improv group I'm in: Harry Houdini's Box of Doom is already preparing for next year! Aren't you excited? Each group member is preparing a box to use in the game of snatch. I'm making DaVinci's Box of Everything. Exciting, I know. I've also been writing some standup I want to try out at an open mic somewhere this summer... we'll see how that goes.

Well you've suffered through enough ascii... so I'll let you be. I think thats everything signifigant. Go about your ways.

oh yeah- and did I mention I'm 20 now?




yikes.

Civ down, about to start studying for Calc (shoot me, please)

Had a great weekend, friday night went bowling with Elyse and Joe, then we got coffee before going back to PC to wander around, and eventually play kickball. Saturday night was the theater banquet "your parents prom" was the theme, very fun. Parents came up to visit Sunday, to have a burfday dinner - good times all around.

listening to Eve 6 - Inside Out One of the songs on the "Remember when that was cool?" list... still fun to listen to.

need to get creative urges out before I do the whole math studying thing... so I'm just going to write something... we'll see what it is when I finish.. I have no clue what I'm going to write, but I'm only giving myself like 15 minutes.

The steel made his hand cold, it pressed against his palm in a comforting, but not comfortable way. The grooves along the grip etched lines into his palm, and left just enough room for droplets of sweat to trickle through, causing Robert to itch in a most inconvenient manner. "Shit..." he mumbled softly, adjusting his lips to allow the cigarette to dangle out of the left side while he exhaled smoke through his lips. A confident lear appeared on his mouth and he let the cigarette drop, twisting his foot over the embers abrasively before moving towards the dustridden window. He squinted through the dirty glass in an attempt to make out the figures approaching the building, but soon gave in to the grime and made a firm sweep across the glass with his shirt sleeve. Vision. It was the people he expected to see. He recognized the navy blue outfits immediately. Effortlessly, catlike, he maneuvered up the steel stairs, moving gently, avoiding creaks and bangs, still nursing his metal friend. The barrel was the coldest part, the handle felt warm now, uncomfortable. He let it dangle, uncocked by his side and used his other hand to pat the chest pocket of the tan sports jacket he wore. He felt the Compact Discs round shape and smiled again- after all, he had been successful. A few more movements and he would be finished, he could deliver the disk to Synerco and be done for good, living the rich life. He paused on the last step, and allowed himself a quick daydream. Palm trees and margaritas, hot chicks and easy lays. It inspired him, and he took the last step.

He did not expect his foot to miss the last step. He definetly did not expect to fall onto the catwalk and make a surprising amount of noise... but mostly, he did not expect to drop his pistol to the floor of the warehouse, 30 feet below. He cursed silently under his breath, but then remained silent, moving forward on his hands and knees, then lieing down so the lip of the catwalk hid him. Things were going to be harder now. The black air of the warehouse was suddenly pierced with the white of daylight, dust moved in silhouettes of the light, as the low creak of the door did nothing to aid the investigators position.

Robert cursed quietly again, he'd just have to do things the hard way. Hugging the floor, he maneuvered silently around the catwalk, moving slowly and silently till he was behind the two officers. He heard their quiet conference below, and peeked over the edge to see them standing back to back, guns drawn, circling nervously. It was all he could do to keep from chuckling out of sheer pleasure from their fear- he'd developed quite the reputation. Thinking quickly, Robert gripped the pen from his pocket, and threw over the catwalk, so that it landed in the dark corner. The officers jumped, and faced the corner - Robert leered and wondered how they had made the force. as they slowly approached the corner, Robert began working his way down the other staircase, careful not to make the same mistake he'd made before.

Pallets lay on the floor below, and provided substantial cover for Robert to move in the direction of his pistol... he moved closer, and closer, until finally he reached the weapon, cocked the hammer back, and pulled the trigger.

No bullets came out.
****************************************************************************************************

YOU CHOOSE THE ADVENTURE!
(a) - Robert fumbles with the pistol, to find it empty, and him devoid of bullets
(b) - before he can do anything, the officers fire
(c) - Robert makes a run for it, dashing for the open door

Right now I'm listening to Existentialism on Prom Night by Straylight Run <- click to listen. It's melodic and sombre... I like it.

I've got what is the current final copy of my schedule for next year. It's going to be harsh if I can't change it, I'll check every day this summer if I have too. I'm not very good at math... at all- so this may be the death of me...
