Life Events With Bug

Bug had a dental appointment yesterday, and came home with two teeth out...all excited; tooth fairy, right? That's all well and good, fine, but I discover that his grandmother has already told him to expect $2 a tooth!!! Are you shittting me?!? Well, whatever, she paid the four we put the teeth under his pillow, and off to bed (I had a moral challenge when he actually asked me if the ToothFairy was real...I so wanted to come clean, but he's 6...I lied. "Yup, sure is."). We go in before we go to bed to swap out the teeth for cash, and can't find them...little fucker couldn't leave them alone, so they were lost in his bed...finally did make the switch, without too much hassle.

This morning, when dropping him off at his (fucking-annoying-I-want-her-head-on-a-plaque) grandmother's house, she tells him that 'she heard a noise in the playroom, go check it out', and there's money there, too. When Bug wonders if he has some money at his Daddy's, too, she tells him "Well, you have 3 households, maybe so." No, bitch, he has TWO households, and he doesn't need to be getting cash at all of them...especially not at those prices. Christ...

Open Calendar Of Events

Gonna be a slow day. Gonna finish up the episodes of Cowboy Bebop that I have, and try to make a couple icons (I did do another one for sandcat yesterday). Di's having a drink with delilahbowie later tonight, and I dunno if we have any plans afterwards...nice easy day.

Well, damn, NOBODY will make any cartoon pix of me? Fine, I see how you all are. ;)

Something For You All

OK, kids, this is your only chance. I've kept an online locker for mp3's for the last couple years or so. I haven't really been using it much, but there is still a Gig of mp3's there, on the server. The website, though, is going out of business in one month, so I've been cleaning it out.

So, if you want, you are welcome to go download anything out of it you have until December 13th.

1. Go to
2. Log in as
3. Password is darkfyre

Everything is in the 'locker', something like 250 tracks in there, from Curve, to Tom Waits, to Gordon Lightfoot, to Tom Smith. Certainly not a fraction of my whole collection, but there they are. If you want 'em, go get 'em.

(no subject)

And as we wind on down the road,
Our shadows taller than our soul,
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold,

And if you listen very hard,
The tune will come to you at last,
Where all are one and one is all,
To be a rock and not to roll.

Yes, I'm In A Lyrics Mood...Sue Me

But they all seem to say something...Philosophy by Pink Floyd:

If you should go skating
On the thin ice of modern life
Dragging behind you the silent reproach
Of a million tear-stained eyes
Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice
Appears under your feet.
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind
With your fear flowing out behind you
As you claw the thin ice.


Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?


Shall we buy a new guitar?
Shall we drive a more powerful car?
Shall we work straight through the night?
Shall we get into fights, leave the lights on, drop bombs?
Do tours of the East, contract disease?
Bury bones, break up homes, send flowers by phone?
Take to drink, go to shrinks, give up meat, rarely sleep?
Keep people as pets, train dogs, raise rats, fill the attic with cash?
Bury treasure, store up leisure, but never relax at all?


Sometimes, regardless of what you may be doing, you just have to stop, turn the volume knob as far to the right as it will go, bang your head, and air guitar for all you're worth.

Long Live Rock.

Missed Your Cookie!

Well, caliban was unable to come down yesterday, due to getting screwed over by an unscrupulous car seller...but things may work out to his greater advantage yet. Still, I missed getting to see him, so hopefully we'll make it up in the near future.

One thing he did miss out on, though, was the fact that Di and I had saved a cookie form the batch we made a couple nights ago, stuck a couple of candles in it, and were going to have it for him instead of a cake. Well, not one to let a good thing go to waste, we made the most of it. We'll do something else when you do make it down, bro'.

Well, Fuck You, Too

My apologies to anyone who was trying to get to my MP3 locker, since they have now closed it due to "violations of House Rules". Apprently, even though the service is set up so that you can have a place to keep MP3's and share them, they didn't count on my actually doing it.

Interestingly enough, in digging through these 'house rules' to try and determine what I actually violated, the only one I can find that seems applicable is that a user isn't supposed to share their password. Well, I'd like to know just how they expect anyone to be able to share what is in their locker if no one else can get into it to share the files therein.

Fuckers. I'd advise you to pass the message on to boycott them, but they are going out of business, so what's the point? Regardless, I still have a huge collection here on my harddrive, and one of these days soon, I'll post a list and offer my services for mix discs or something.

Now, to attempt to go find and replace some of the ones that I didn't have backed up locally...*grumblegrumble*

New Icon

Threw together this icon of Jet from Cowboy Bebop, because I've gotten hooked on the series, and I like him. No other real reason.
Worship Chaos


Inkblot tests are just much possibility...which means I was not surprised by this evaluation.
Frank, your unconscious mind is driven most by Imagination.

This means you have a deep desire to use innovative ideas to enhance your life and influence the world around you. This drive influences you far more than you may realize on a conscious level.

Your need to be innovative drives how you look at new opportunities and the kinds of experiences in life you choose to have. On an unconscious level, the reason you may be so driven by imagination is your fear of destruction, the opposite of creation. When you are unable to create due to restrictions imposed by your environment or even ones you unwittingly impose on yourself, do you feel trapped or confined? You may find these feelings of unease only get better when you find another outlet for your imagination.

With such a strong creative orientation, you are willing to entertain a broad spectrum of ideas at any given time. The world is a fuller, richer place because you can contribute new ideas to any experience. Your natural curiosity inspires those around you and encourages them to come up with ideas they wouldn't have thought of without your help.

Though your unconscious mind is driven most strongly by Imagination, there is much more to who you are at your core.

Hail Chaos, baby.
