State of things:
more to come later as I continue my incommunicado stage for the next month.
Trying to get my bearings straight
That's a high end estimate, sure, but it is worth a look none the less. Add that to cheaper rent/housing/gas, and you have a winning combination.
Thing is, the classes start next year- next fall in fact...
So, we're trying to get things moving. I'm probably going to end up working at a restaurant down there, and Jenn is trying to find something appropriate now. Found some places to live, but that's a few months off. We'll probably float for a month and then get our place.
I am both happy and sad to be moving. We really did try here, but the money is just not worth the headaches of daily life. It isn't even a shadow of what it was 5 years ago, let alone 10.
So that is our plan right now. Move now, ask questions later. I'll get something down there that will pay enough....
What is it with people and the need to give me a job?
"Hey, how old are you big guy?"
"Well, I would have said you were 19, cuz the Redskins are having tryouts and you should play for them."
The guy behind the counter said "You tryin to get someone injured ain't ya?" (talking to my new recruiter)
Now then, I have a policy. I don't watch any videos made by anyone who is a member of a "gang" "mob" "crew" or "posse." But, for some reason- I actually LIKED Goodie Mob, and this use of Cee Lo shows some absolute skill in lyric writing and in talent.
Meh, download it already. The whole album is worth it.
The best known mash up of my Generation is probably "The Gray Album" by Dangermouse, or even- god help me- JayZ and Linkin Park.
That said, I came across this site which had an AWESOME mashup of La Grange and Hit The Road Jack- by a guy named Mixsplosiv. Its one of only 2 that he did, and honestly, I would have liked to see more from him.
Pink vs. Fear Factory, sure why not.
Gorillaz vs. NiN? That's a natch.
Gwen Stefani vs. Blur? Oh yeah...
So, some nice mixes there- would love to find more.
Ginger Altoids will melt your mouth.
So, I was in this neat paper shop in Alexandria, when I came across this very interesting goody. Among other things of interest:
Big Baby Book about Breasts
The Official Baby Users Guide
The Yoga guide for real men by wrestler Diamond Dallas Page (DDP)
and quite possibly, the best book ever-
