      its been quite a while...between getting ready for the move...my job...looking for another job in omaha and my friends ive been a bit busy

      so what have i been doing....well...i went to Ireland and came back(will be elaborated at a later date)...went to lollapalooza which was awesome....i could have licked trent reznors face if i wanted to i was that close...but to get that close it took some roughness...a surfer fell on my friend bc she was too small to lift him...she was alright

      my brother is leaving for school next week...and the week after ill be leaving chicago for a year or so to build up some money while living with my parents so i can move back because there is no way im leaving for good ...i love that city too much

      Pineapple Express was awesome...so was batman...the ferry part was my favorite part for those of you who saw it...i almost cried

      ive been having some crazy twisted dreams lately i really think i need to stop watching horror movies

      after i got back from ireland i started running again...im really gunna miss running around my neighborhood...seeing the same people at the same time every morning...hope the new area is just as nice

      kinda wiped from today...but i saw my brothers halo game and it reminded me of the site so i hopped oh to do a short update so you knew i was still alive for those who still read...still cant believe i was gone for so long but thats what happens sometimes...couldnt leave forever...i like you guys too much

      I got my license back finally...it was taken by the cop when i got a ticket a few weeks ago...and guess what the day before i got it back...i got pulled over again

      so i have two sessions of traffic school i got to look forward to...both online thank god

      other then that my brother's gf broke up with him to go out with a guy my age that is in her youth group...hes upset because he said that he didnt see it coming and that she didnt give him a good reason for why she broke up with him...i tried to tell him that she doesnt really need a reason ... but really there are atleast 3 girls that are going to loyola with him from his hs that are throwing themselves at him ...its a bit ridiculous ...i understand that hes upset but theyve only been together for a few months and they are both going off to college so im telling him that this might be best because this is his first relationship and trying a long distance thing might be hard for him to handle

      i just hate to see him sad like that...and i cant really get too mad at her bc shes a really nice girl she just wanted to go for something different bc this was her first relationship too...i cant fault her for that even if she hurt my little brothers feelings

      sad to say after exchanging some comedic banter with my brother after work today he informed me that George Carlin died....i loved that guy he was on my list of favorite comedians and his work will be missed by me atleast...NPR did a little spread on him which was nice...heres something that the Sun-Times did...those are really the only things ive read on the subject so far (while reading that little piece all of a sudden my brother said..."Fuck Grossman"...no idea what he was talking about till i saw a Bears fan shop ad...nice to know that im not the only one that still hates him(hes sitting obnoxiously close to me watching me type this atm...he wants me to run his character through SFK on wow but i cant bc i have pre moving work to do))

      but thats it i gotta throw a bunch of my childhood memories out...im not that attached i just kept too much shit so its going to take forever

      i think ill be on while im at work from now on...atleast for as long as i can keep this signal

      but the purpose of this journal is Across the Universe...heard about this when it came out from my old roommate but now my mom has become obsessed with it...she loves this movie and whenever we watch it she tells me stories about things that happened and how this movie doesnt really sugar coat anything...she tells me that when people think about that time they forget about the riots and the innocent people that were killed...the things that the government did to the soldiers that fought (my uncles being two of them)...she always says that the Iraq war might be as different if kids today protested more like they did during Vietnam...

      anyways since my mom will be leaving i thought id make her a going away gift so im working on a 4 panel painting project inspired by that time period and the movie....im really excited about it and once its dont ill try and take a picture of it but itll take time bc this is something i dont want to rush bc i wanna make sure it comes out like i saw it in my head...haha i havnt been able to stop thinking about it since i saw the movie for the first time

      but here are 4 of my favorite scenes...pretty sure they are in order...but out of the 4 i have to say that the come together scene is #1

      Let it be
      Come together
      Strawberry Fields Forever
      Revolution

      really pay attention to how they matched up the song with what is going on in the scene...its really awesome and if you havnt seen the movie you should because its just too good not to see...and these scenes wont mess up the movie for you if you havnt seen it...if anything itll make you want to see it

      since i cant seem to get on when im home im just gunna post a short version of the update here


      before i started work i saw a few movies that you all might be interested in
      Bruiser
      Catacombs

      i think there was another but i cant remember...but both of those i really liked and if you like thrillers you might like them too...out of those two i think i liked Bruiser the best i put it on and really didnt expect it to be as good as it was

      anyways this job is making me act like an old woman and now ive started to go to bed earlier and earlier because i have to wake up early every day to get to their house and not get held up too much by traffic....im wiped when i get home ...and when i do and up coming home ive been helping my mom to get shit together for the move...lol...shes been going through pictures and she showed me a number of them the other day....all i have to say is if i ever have kids i am not going to dress them like my mom dressed me...jesus she treated me like a plaything...and im not going to even talk about the mini mouse costume she had me in when i was 6....when i saw that pic i just asked her why she would do that if she loved me haha...it was tragic...so much face paint and a fake nose and a ridiculous dress...not attractive...but hey im glad i was 6 bc it didnt look like i cared about it atall

      and i had a big fuckin head...picture a bobblehead doll thats what i looked like when i was little...or atleast till i sorta grew into my head

      other then that i have an unfortunate sunburn...while the little one was waiting for her sister to get out of swim lessons she wanted to sit in the sun...so i went with her...yah i remembered to put sunblock on her but i forgot to put some on my pale ass self....gg self

      but thats about it...after this summer i think im gunna end up working at the hospital that my friend works at till i can get a job in my field...it pays well...not the best job ever but i dont really care its something and thats better then nothing

      i still gotta read SH...not sure whos writing now but i might just print them out and bring them to the pool with me and read them while i wait bc im almost done with Freakonomics

      its 3am right now and i just almost died in a car accident

      the huge thing is right now is that i didnt.....i was driving from a friends house without my seatbelt on and going about 75mph its really dark and i dont have my brights on when i should bc they live out in bumble fuck illinois...a deer came out of nowhere and i swerved and missed the deer but in doing that i ran off the road and almost hit a tree...you have no idea how scared i was during that...i think my heart might have stopped

      if i had hit that tree or the deer i really dont think i would be here right now...i would have gone through my windshield like my dad did before my brother was born but i dont think the ptb would let two people from the same family get out of that kind of mess alright

      i really hope i dont let myself forget something like this because i am not a safe driver and it could easily happen again if i dont watch it...and damn it i really need to use my seatbelt if i dont stop speeding atleast

      thats it...i had a already written journal on word that i was gunna post but this is gunna have to come first and ill just put that up later...i just needed to write this down somewhere

      gdchickoo8

      (Note: this really a pointless journal ... just my thoughts so far today...and eagleman i do intend on doing those facts just not right now)
      nothing really...i was online procrastinating most of last night....got to bed at around 5...well i lost consciousness around then....i woke up at 650 and kinda lurked around my apartment till 745 when i realized i forgot to get a scantron for my 8am exam which i didnt study for (and i didnt really need to because its cultural anthropology and if i dont know that shit by now i missed the plot somewhere...finished that in about 20 minutes then attempted to work but didnt then i went to turn in my camera for journalism and my Gta was late so i was sitting in the basement of the journalism building forever doing this double dutch thing with the internet connection...one of the things that went through my head while attempting to connect was "come on just one bar...just let me get online for a second...if i get a connection i wont even breathe so i dont lose it" that happened for about 30 minutes...i was literally moving around the entire ground floor attempting to get a signal while i was waiting for my Gta...

      now im attempting to write my history of science final but i keep getting distracted by my own thoughts about a number of things mostly hovering around the thoughts i have on the research i want to do next year for this book or paper i want to write and maybe get published on a certain aspect of social theory that i have been fooling around with...

      and i just realized...until i go to grad school this s the last day of this sort i will be having...weird but exciting because i think im really gunna enjoy the work that i will be doing...

      but thats it right now my attention has gone elsewhere

      right now im in my last class of undergrad( laptop ftw )

      next week is finals week...i have 2 finals next week but 5 classes...the other 3 finals were take home which is nice but when 3 profs give you take home finals and expect them to be due dead week that can be a bit stressful but i got them done

      but other then that when i was walking to class i realized how much im going to miss this campus... mostly how im going to miss my walk to class...i take the same way every day from my apartment because all my classes are in the same 3 buildings which are right near each other .... before i leave i plan on taking pictures of my favorite spots for two reasons... one would be just for myself ...the other was to show people who havnt seen what ive seen how pretty it is

      i really wont be on much till i get home because the two finals i do have next week i really need to study for... it figures the easy classes i have where i know all the information have take home finals... the classes i have issues with have pain in the ass finals that are in class

      Breaking a set is always a tough call. If you're raiding and going OOM or taking a lot of raid damage on bosses you may want to put the Sindorei Robes on for the stats. Gem them properly and you really wont notice the missing damage. Remember:

      Consistant damage through out the fight (with a lower spell damage)is better than going OOM 3/4 of the way through the fight (with higher spell damage). The fact that you can constantly put up damage will do more boss damage than dumping your pool all at once. Get a solid spell rotation: Once 5/5 Imp Scorch is up 7x Fireball and 1x Scorch. Time your cool downs, if it's a 8-10 minute fight you can pop Combustion/Icey Veins/Trinket early in the fight and then they'll be back up when the boss is at %20. If it's a quick fight 4-7 minutes then save them for the last %20. The reason to wait until %20 is you should have Molten Fury which increases damage to targets at >%20 health bu %20.

      Fire is where all the dmg is. All of our Sunwell raid mages are fire. I just respec on weekends if I feel like PvPing, I dont PvP that often so its not too expensive. The new badge gear is nice, a lot of it is better than what you'll get in SSC or TK. Do a heroic Magisters Terrace run and get the robe too.

      I always thought the reverse had more impact. As a High School student I never once met the admin outside of the Vice Principal and Principal. And the school rules were just enforced by them not made, they did do things like limit lunch and break periods for vandalism but that's part of enforcing. Due to their limited runs as Principal (only a handful of years) it was the general feeling that we weren't being locked in with them, they were being locked in with us.

      If it were non-dangerous I wouldn't care...although I would point out how every news station around kept drilling the Catholics (rightly of course) for child molestation which Scientology has, plus murder, plus blackmail, plus espionage.

      I too, am tired. And agree with you.

      Maybe we'll get lucky and someone will create a viable retrovirus which cures diseases that spreads across the globe...and doesn't turn all horror movie on us.

      You have a valid point.

      I feel much the same. I don't think it's just luck that many of the best minds in history had something physically wrong with them. Had they been in better health, one must wonder why they'd stay in so much and think/write.

      There's another issue of "perfect" humans being genetically frail since viruses and the environment will change yet their genetic coding will not. They will need...what...either wait for their children to get the upgrades to advance or rewire a retrovirus to make the changes needed. Both of those require that we know what we're doing and the retrovirus passed unto the children doesn't cause them illness, AND that we on a whole recognize the need to change. Look at global warming, we can't agree it exists how could we agree a threat is real and prepare in time against something for the "perfect" beings?

      There's also the whole debate that things earned are better than things given. A life without poverty and one in which a person works and makes his own wealth....well they're judged very differently. A group (sub-species?) of humans without illness would be in for a major shock if the flu changes to match them and they get it for the first time. They'll be genetically inferior to the simplistic and genius of the ever evolving virus.

      But that's on the physical, which still needs to be taken into account, on the mental and social level if everyone was good at everything...life would be dull. Journalists and critics are getting this right now. The internet's made us all into dime-store journalists and critics and we're awash in opinions, reports, and news...being a professional in these fields is beginning to look less and less important.

      (Not that current American Journalism is great, btw)

      But in such a society....would there not be rampant cynicism? If you have a stable life of 150 years, can punch a dent into steel, and run a mile in four minutes without breaking a sweat....and so can everyone else...wouldn't society just...sorta...slow down...stop meaning as much...and end?

      People say no. I say I don't know.

      Great times to be alive though since advances in genetics and technology grow more and more by the hour.

      The rough sex continues.

      Do you equate intelligence with sexuality? Hmmm.....

      ....

      Or is it simply the actions of a bored and idle mind?

      We'll find out after this word from our sponsors...

      Yeah, creating something in art isn't the same at all. I love writing, I love to make something new, worlds, characters, situations....but I have a strong need to expand my mind and find new things within our own world. The very fact that something exists, regardless of how or why, is nothing short of astonishing. Figuring out the things here or not here.....the words...they cannot find themselves!

      I'm of two minds (which I think is a good thing) about how to achieve such a lofty goal...on a human scale not just for me.

      One is through internal discovery and realization. To understand the macro, one must understand the mirco kinda thing.

      The other is to pimp our own rides through genetic engineering or cybernetic enhancements.
