I want a hobby.

I want a reason to leave my room and go outside, or at least somewhere else. What I really wish I had, is a job, but oh well.

I could whine for a while, but then who’ll read it?

I write code and I write my reactions to poetry,
I go to class and I take tests
there’s some walking interspersed in there too
I eat and I sleep
the rest of the time goes toward my computer
or staring out the window.

The sunsets, splayed  out across the sky
wonderful for the time being
I have two trees
a server with my webpage on it
half read books litter my room
and old magazines I clipped model trains from
to paste on my wall
because anything is better than white paint.

I daydream and think about what-ifs
the past rolls through like a train
stopping all traffic
clanging bells resound
blurry shapes glide from ear to ear
the actualities distorted by time and opinion
is it just a fantasy at this point
delusion given shape?

Tomorrow’s another day, let’s see what happens.



Why is it such a big deal that Microsoft employees use iPhones? If I made some money, maybe I’d have one too.. but also keeping in mind I’d probably buy an unlocked non-ATT version I could use on the carrier of my choice. It’s a nice piece of hardware, and if I didn’t have an iPod that holds more data than an iPhone could dream of holding and if it didn’t cost so much and it was really only a mobile phone with application support..

I think I’m talking about a phone with Android on it. My Bad.

I like google voice, and it’s a neat idea. Get on the boat Apple and quit being such dicks.

I want to build a custom computer, thus saving money, but also limiting me to use Windows.

Disappointments with the content industry

I like Hulu, I have ever since it was a one-off site that got a mention on Buzz Out Loud. There was only content from NBC, but that wasn’t a problem because those were the only shows I watched. At the time, I saw nothing wrong with the site, even if I couldn’t skip the ads. You see, I’m not a fan of the television, because 1) I can’t pause it 2) I have to watch the shows on their schedule 3) The ads are generally obnoxious. The five or so twenty second ads that are shown during a half-hour of a Hulu show are not that bad. I actually watch them because they’re not a problem. If I were watching TV, I’d simply get up and do something else, seeing none of the ads.

Watching Hulu it’s hard to miss the lack of ads, and I hate how some sites don’t have full episodes online. I would probably watch The Big Band Theory if it were on Hulu, instead I’ll have to torrent it.

Dear CBS, you get no revenue when I torrent your shows, how can I support you if you don’t put them online for me to watch? Aren’t you supposed to create content for everyone to consume? Last time I checked, I’m the target audience for that show. You’re missing out on money, and if I encounter litigation, I’ll use that as my defense. CBS made me do it, just like buying the off-brand pop tarts because they cost half as much, only one’s free and the other are sitting out in the open half way across the city.

I probably had more to say, but I got distracted.
