aero (15k image)Hi,

It appears to be loading okay now, and from what you’ve described sounds as thought it’s a load related issue. We’re going to be taking steps shortly to reduce the load significantly on area51, which should alleviate this problem permanently.

Vince.

Fuck yeah. Finally they are going to fix my server problems which is why my journal software is giving Elle such a huge ass headache. And Elle you rock for that post today. It looks like so much fun and I may have to partake in the fun later tonite.

I am wanting to get rid of my 28-200mm f/3.5 lens for my camera. I barely use it. Gonna sell it and get a 16mm Fisheye. So if anyone wants to do a trade to fit a Nikon, come forward damnit!

This morning I went in to work early to photograph some guitarists who are auditioning to be in Limp Bizkit. It’s funny that the other guitarist in the Bizkit left. Why would he have left…he obviously is spineless so why would he quit a band that is so successful. I mean, he could have morals, but if he did he wouldn’t be there in the first place. It is just boggling my mind. I did find that bit on MTV where they were on stage doing a soundcheck and he built this lighting deal in to his shirt. It was fucking with his wireless guitar. It was so Spinal Tap it hurt. I did listen to that remix CD they just put out. It’s not too shabby. Funny, that is how i got in to the Cure, with MIXED UP.

Why is it 70 degrees outside? WHAT THE FUCK? Someone make it feel like winter. Give me some damn snow. What the hell is wrong with this planet. I am so ready to pack it up and move back to Mars.

True story

I�m driving home around 8 :30 last Sunday night, and I�m on Route 7 right at the exit for 66. And I�m at the red light, and I slowly start to pull forward, and I see someone trying to cross the highway near the exit. Which isn�t very smart, granted, but he�s wearing white, so at least he�s pretty visible.

Guess who it was?

Jesus Christ! No, really. It some guy in a long dark beard with long flowing hair. And he was wearing a white gown, with a tan wraparound-shawl thing. I didn�t catch the shoes, but I wouldn�t be surprised if there weren�t any, it was a nice night.

Or maybe some sandals.

Anyways, this was the best thing to happen all weekend. I called Sig and was all like �Make me dinner! By the way, I just saw Jesus!�

Nevermind the fact that it doesn�t sound half as cool when you consider it was a Sunday night near a bunch of churches that might have been having a play or something. I just like to think Jesus really needed some groceries from Trader Joes. He�s hippie like that.

The rest of the weekend I had various babies throwing up on me, and I saw the �Count of Monte Christo.� Not nearly as cool as Jesus.

Also

Sig and I have been watching that Steven King miniseries, �Rose Red.� It is one of those things I have to watch every night, but by the time the credits roll I will be slumped in my chair and yell �MAN that sucked.� But I can�t stop watching it.

Gef�lschte Musik l��t die Leute zusammen kommen

Listening to : On Shroud 9, Janson, Piece of Resistance, Plily and Dole, Baskerville.

If I had a band, it would be a hair metal piece called Klyt.

S-well, you�re getting married. Congrats. May you have many many minature children. Elfin, even.

i am the great doughty gabay

limpbiz-sm (7k image)This is the shit I get every fucking day. When is it going to end?! At least there are some that just make me laugh.

Subject : Message to mr. Doughty Himself, if he finds the time…………..

Hi SCUG,

I wonder if this little message could b passed on to the great Doughty himself? I’ve got some Cookie Lookie Funny facts to ponder on for his hungry hammerbrain;

*******************************************************************

Hi Mister doughty, lo0000oved your show on Lowlands (…sugarfree supergrass…) A couple of years ago. Beatifull strung, lotsa dewlaps swung, an me drung, drunk like watta, watta fuck??

The Following is a journey into your own lyrics with me as a guide too… If you catch my drift – wood. Wanna try?? – >

-> Q is: – Can u say : – A man drives a plane into the – chrysler building – and it’s chicago – it’s not chicago – (e.k.a. NY??), and still claim : Ich habbe nichts gewust?? ;-). Kiddigoat. Just normalizing the signal, just banging on freon.

Got my faith goatee on. For real. I believe that everything becomes real if you trie hard enough – and have the time and means to do it, that is -.

Paleolithicium. Funny that, I majored in geology – praecambrium – and am currently on lithiCIum. Tried to take a – NON SuiciDail{526463} – Ride with PIXIE-Jefrey up to Olympus Mons, Cut myself – While shaving of cos, then they (of Courrrse, of Courrrse [Richard III]!!!!) locked me up in a mental
dentAll hospital. Now; the more mental the hospital, the less dental care it gives, the worse the shaving gear. Matter of optical economics, right? That is to say, points of views…

Annyway, it’s not a bad place. The air in the smoking room burns itself THRU cigarrettemouths like the names of a million candybars (or super and sub strings gleich sie fieler Ein steine seht flickeren in deiner eigenes sehr kleinen Uhr Spiele.

Your Doughty-licks, mr. Doughty, sting my brain THRU the sound of your MUse Music Muse. And they’ve ground a ground – they’re a ground ground -right into the gro0ves of my mill-i-stone memorybox.

And it’s a rivergrooving problem that drives the Netherlands overbankdwellers insane. Q is: Can you decide to live in a overbank deposit area and expext no wet feet? Q is: Can you stop walking sanddunes from walking? Q is: Can you make coincidence into miracle by trying hard enough
and cheat a bit – preprogramming?

Q is – What is a CD? Held up into the sun? If you laid it on a rock on a sunny day with the sunny side up, is there a chance, somewhere in Schrodingers realm, that the CD”s churning tuning would be picked up and rain down down down down down into someone else’s brainbox? Just a Q?

By the way, my name is Sammy, for REAL! (of Courrrse, of Courrrse [Richard III]!!!!) I like the Moon, but prefer the sunny side of the street. ;-). Wrote a little poem though (in dutch, i’ll translate) on sinks and washing in them, knowing the stair is there etc.:

BABY is HUNGRY!!!
iT SLEEPS in your sink and
SCREAMS when you open the tap.
Suckles at all your electric sockets.
Burps, pukes and cries into your TV.
Giggles and tickles with 10 fingers
and 10 toes beneath your pans & pots.
Turn up that heater on the wall!!!
The bottle is already heeding the call.

To end some more cut and paste work, hope u enjoyed it!

There is freedom within, there is freedom without, trying to catch the Baltic sea in a papercup, So Janine, I’d drink U up, if I could, but…

But don’t dream it’s over, hey now, hey mister postman look and C, if there’s a message in your bag for me, could be a bomb or it could be a letter, or an ad, that would even be better, a message from erehwon to nowhere, that goes on and on, I’ts been such a long long time, Colors spread around, everything in it’s right place a the right time. Since I could laugh at this world of mine, I could’nt stop laughing!!!!!!!!
