Found - Raven, by Swiniarski, which I've raved about before. So I picked up The Flesh and the blood, which contains Raven as well as The Flesh, the blood and the fire. AND Hostile takeover. For 8$ each. SO HAPPY.

Drank in Stanford, drove down in San Diego (where I am now). Am totally getting into the groove of this trip.

Dad, love ya, miss ya, and found you a fancy camera :) Looking for a good deal on it right now. Didn't find a San Diego souvenir shirt yet though :( Looking.

Awesome awesome awesome indie music, a top 100 playlist from critical metrics.

Food with mascots that encourage you to eat them.

best HALO tribute video. Suppah cool. Beats Q3A videos easily. With a very uncomfortable ending.

White chicks and gang signs

Holy shit that's a long article about light saber combat. And read it all, you will.

Best FSM sighting ever. Ramen.

Back to work.


I shared a whiskey with my loneliness,
And a pretzel with my pain,
Shook the hand of the barman,
And walked out into the cold, cold rain.

Singapore Airport.
Huh. Nice place.
If South Indians wanted to take over this place, all we'd have to do is declare it and we'd win by the sheer number of us. I'm *pretty* sure.

What have I become?
A ghost of my former self
Man, I need a drink.

World's worst music review evah. Horrendous, atrocious, completely screwed up writing.

In other news, the trip to California just got postponed to the 11th. Godammit.

Going to California - Led Zep

(Sorry, I couldn't resist)

Spent my days with a woman unkind,
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start,
Going to california with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me theres a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane,
Never let them tell you that theyre all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey,
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake.
Seems that the wrath of the gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
I think I might be sinking.
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
Ill meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high.
To find a queen without a king;
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings.
La la la la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin to find a woman whos never, never, never been born.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself its not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

So excited!

I'm heading to California on 6th night on a business trip which should last about a month, if not more.

And no, that ain't no April fool's joke.
