Today in Physical Education Skill 114E - Fitness and Exercise, we did Yoga. If Yoga were a western concept, it would be known as "serious crucial stretching". It worked out pretty well for me, as I now feel like my body is made out of one continuous fiber instead of a bunch of sore unconnected pieces. You could use me as a tennis racket.
Tonight is going to be an epic evening. I have a date with destiny at soon to be disclosed air hockey tables in Indianapolis. Cory Hall and I are going to battle it out this afternoon/evening, and then it's off to Cookiehead's 25th birthday party. At some point during the party, I am going to have to ditch the action to go over to the ever important final Majhas show at the Melody Inn. It will be a shame to see Jon Michael shoot rainbows out of his hands and grip the sky for one last time.
Maybe with Majhas done, that will just mean more time for Ice Nine reunions, right?

|I suck at writing!
So! Phoenix Bodies are recording some songs this week, and I've been having a ton of troubles trying to write lyrics for songs. I think the main problem was that I've not been writing much of anything lately except for physics lab reports and sentences in broken German. So! I've resolved to write more, and as part of this resolution I've decided to come back to my crappy livejournal and attempt to write about something, anything, and everything for about 10 minutes or so each day. This way I can be an articulate and functioning write when duty calls!
So yeah, I'm back to this non-sense, we'll see how it all works out. Perhaps I can stop writing bad songs about watching Dr. Phil and setting forest fires. Current Mood: thankful

|weekend 2003 AD
giant car crash 3 dead +100 injured
shitty show at shitty place. blood brothers are a bad version of rye coalition.
james is totally entertaining. IIIII'm ALL RIGHT! NO BODY WORRY 'BOUT ME!
ONE NIGHT ONLY!!
speeding ticket, no radar gun.
travis is incredibly mad.
mom bought me groceries.
mara'akate plans a new era of awkwardness. writes new song.
oh yeah, i bought a ruins cd too.
|Thursday, February 6th, 2003|
today i printed 750 fliers for dude fest, for free. it was cool. guys in the computer lab were getting mad.
i am going to detroit tomorrow to see the blood brothers and hang out. it's going to be awesome.
i just sort of realized the blood brothers are just a really good rye coalition rip off, but i really like rye coalition, so that is allright.
oh daily life. someday i will look back at this and have 1 million memories rush back. that will be awesome.
being inarticulate is awesome.
yesterday i mopped my kitchen.
it was awe...
i made a mean catfish fillet.
living alone is sort of making me a better cook, but not as good as i would like to be. i want to be awesome. maybe i will go t a culinary arts school after i am done getting my physics and math degrees. i guess i just want to play rock music after i am done with that. oh well. summertimes.
blah blah blah
mara'akate cd is coming out in less than 3 weeks. we should have our copies soon. wyrick discovered this while surfing through allmusic.com. apparently barnes and noble has out cd available for pre-order.
hot hot hot.

|Why I love ENGL305
The Integral of an Octopus
A silent stopper
the holes at the bottom of the
Tentacles of terror
take lives of other
The many appendages are
of the army
An evil king of the deep
watches his domain
with sinster eyes,
dark and grim,
that he stole from a brooding genius.
When the creature looks
into a mirror
it only sees an ominous
of Richard Nixon.
A squishy sentient
with malevolent intentions

|(long live) the romance morgue
indianapolis was HOT last night. romance morgue broke up because everyone realize billy plays a pink guitar.
punkrocknight with all the hardcore bands was cool. racebannon played some cool new slow sludgy song. i saw lots of old punk rock sluts. it was good times. majhas was totally rockin'. i talked to jason from suicide note about them coming to play dude fest, and they are down with the job. so this will be exciting.
the melody inn is really shitty, but the door guy let me in even though i did not have ID. the show was all about love, 100+ at a "sold out" show. every single person there knew each other. strange people from my past showed up. it was a great time.
"mara'akate" enters a new world of turmoil as we wrote a ridiculous new song. it sounds even less like anything we have ever done before, but it is totally awesome. brian, ben, and i may just start a new band, and have that band play with mara'akate in europe.
antonio may be coming to europe with us. josh apparently doesn't have money to go. shit is getting weird
i went to practice with !eck/acre today, and no one was home. if this shit keeps up i am going to call it quits. we need to practice at least 3 times this month or else that will probably be enough for me.
i just want to be in a band called Lucrative World Burger Industry.

so i am taking this graduate level math course.
MA510- vector calculus.
it's the third week, and all we are doing for homework is drawing circles.
and i thought this was going to be hard

20 degrees has never felt so warm
creating inertial frames of reference is cool.
eventually, everything in the universe ends up being red. why? we are expanding!

helen of troy
aim of conrad
rapider than horsepower
i think about 9 more bands will be added by the time this happens.
i hope we can get andrew wk.

the show last night was pretty maddening.
not in a bad way though.
it was just so crazy being trapped in a small house with so many people i knew and i had not seen in such a long time. all my friends that were not friends with each other were there, and they were all talking to me simultaneously, not realizing i was trying to carry on conversation with other groups of people. it was enough to make a man become empathetic to the autistic.
after the show was very nice though.
i was somewhat apprehensive about the "party" i had promised. i was sort of glad that it was not a raging success. chilling out and shootin' da shit was cool. it was much needed and welcomed after fighting the 45 headed sea monster of past accquaintances.
having so many people come to see me made me feel good though.
the visitors from michigan were perfect house guests, and will hopefully become decent friends of mine. i may have to go up there to visit people sometime.
vector calculus in 10 hours and 26 minutes. i guess i should maybe do some of the homework.
alex is not going to europe with mara'akate. i'm sort of sad that he cannot accompany us, but at least it puts an end to our drummer dilemma.
i think i am going to just review records instead of doing homework.
|Saturday, January 18th, 2003|
i'd like to thank chris isaak and bobby mcpherrin for their guidance.
i'd also like to thank the random dude who gave me back my ATM card at 1:30 am for not robbing me.

For The Birds
The Human Condition
8:00 pm January 18th (Saturday) at Solidarity Books 2123 Boulevard Place
Admission is $4. All $$ goes to Solidarity Books
come. you never know when it's going to be our very last show.
it's really sort of absurd to assume the world to be continuous curves. it's not that way at all. everything is quantized. as you zoom in on the world, all you see is a rough, pixelated quantum foam. you don't see a smooth curve or a straight line.
i guess this is why all the trees look different.
