hi [23 Apr 2009|04:03am]
[ mood | pleasing to your ears ]

blog: http://cardsoncards.blogspot.com (warning: the content is at least 85% sports card-related, so it's probably not your cup of tea or bag of biscuits or whatever.)

facebook
: yeah, I have that now.  it's rather embarrassing, but it's fun to play mindless games on I suppose.

myspace
: it's extremely dusty but I haven't quite decided to delete it yet.  you won't get a virus from my page!

twitter: just kidding.  I will think long and hard about kicking in the face the first person who says "twitter" to me in a serious context.

if you really, really want to know what's going on with me, e-mail me or call me. I'm probably in the phone book.

I love you [25 Aug 2008|03:21am]
But I'm not in love with you.

I write other things somewhere else.  I write about baseball cards, mostly.  I'm sorry to disappoint you.  I'm through trying to impress people (I was through something like 7 years ago, but I didn't know how to tell you.)

The most exciting things in my life right are entirely more mundane than anything I've ever bored you with here.  But that is a good thing.

Next week: state fair grease!
Two weeks from now: the world*!

(*by the world, I totally meant some crappy town I used to live in...)

Song of the Day - "Call the Doctor" [20 Jan 2008|04:16am]
It's hard to find any CD in my collection where the first seven songs are as immediately hard-hitting as on Sleater-Kinney's "Call the Doctor."  Despite being in the pre-Janet "All Star" Weiss era of the Sleater-Kinney legacy, "Call the Doctor" is just an amazing album.  Normally I would have deeper things to say about a particular song that I selected such as the title track here, but I really have always felt that this album ranks among the few that just seem to end before you're ready.

I'm bored [12 Oct 2007|02:12am]
As much as I was tempted to google-search "Rilo Kiley sucks now" and "Diamondbacks fans" right now, I was able to restrain myself and type in here instead. 

Typically, I have nothing of note to say, though.

More to come...

(possible headlines)

- Tri-Met's drivers fail to embrace Google Maps technologies

- Burritos are the new hot dogs

- Frank TV is worse than the worst thing you've ever seen on YouTube

- Dane Cook's favorite month is already 33% over.

A "thwomp" noise.
A newspaper just hit my front door.
I guess I will read it now.
Good night.

That was the writing of the whiner's bio [23 Jul 2005|04:43am]
There was another entry written here, but I was unable to finish it. It was a bit too angry and senselessly misdirected, anyway.

Instead, I'll let you know that tonight the Portland Timbers professional soccer team is taking on the Sunderland team from the English Premier League at PGE Park in downtown Portland. I'm considering going and I recommend that you do, too.

Goodbye Sandra Day O'Connor, and the Rest of Our Lives [02 Jul 2005|03:42am]
I could go off on how our country and our civilization has been in sharp decline since 1996. I could blame Clinton's second term, or the Spice Girls, the rise of Wal-Mart, or AM talk radio for initiating it all. But I won't get into it... I'm far too lazy at this point.

As long as we keep turning out shiny new gadgets and technologies and eye and ear candy that make us all salivate and content... well, when will this ever change? I don't see it happening.

We're all stuck with this. Let's all have a Coors Light and watch the new Pauly Shore "comedy series" on TBS and shoot some fucking fireworks off. Hooray for everybody. Good night.

A New Kind of Vagrant [16 Jun 2005|03:01am]
It goes without saying that working in downtown Portland will lead one to daily conversations with "those less fortunate" asking for monetary assistance. My answers are nearly always honest, since I do rarely ever keep cash on me. I suppose we can wait on the era where spare change beggars accept Visa and Mastercard. The curveball seems to get thrown every so often, like our good friend "I won't hurt you or anything". This gentleman assures you that he is not like "the others" and on any given night will ramble off a list of clubs in close proximity and what they tend to offer. It always seems to be his birthday, which leads to suggestion that one should buy him a drink or several in celebration, and in return he will, well, tell you how to get there?

I don't mean to make light of those who are needy, but I absolutely hate looking anyone in the eye and knowing that they are blatantly dishonest. It's just disturbing.

Cell Phone Nation [13 Jun 2005|01:29am]
I don't own a cell phone. This will come as no surprise to anyone that has known me, but I feel it needs stating anyway. There is something really obnoxious about them and the culture they encourage. One of my co-workers gets extremely irritated when people on our staff use them on their breaks in the break room. I can see where he's coming from. I think that I have nothing against they way they function and the technology that lies behind them.

However, the fact remains: a lot of obnoxious people use cell phones. And they use those phones very loudly. It would be really nice if the list of culturally accepted places where cell phones are not to be used were extended beyond, say, the movie theater.

Here are some proposed cell phone-free zones:

- Public transit (I'm sorry, if I have to pretend to enjoy having a conversation with a noticeably unstable stranger on the bus, then you should too.)

- The break room at work (at least, at my work.)

- Your car/Vespa/gas hogging SUV (people actually send text messages and drive. I've seen this. Smart.)

- The bathroom (there are a lot of reasons for this. I've known people to drop their cell phones in the toilet. This forces the sudden life-altering decision: "should I fetch my phone?" Also, the restroom at my company seems to be the most popular place to be these days... hmm.)

- The zoo (no, wait, nevermind. That's a good idea. I'm hoping your dorky ringtone will send a large primate into such a rage that you will end up running for your life. Or something like that.)

Adventures in Minor League Baseball Viewing [12 Jun 2005|02:21am]
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to listen in on an ongoing conversation between a couple presumably on a first date tonight at a minor league baseball game. She was a country music fan who also enjoyed "movie hopping" and was very confused by the idea of a live baseball game. He, at least, pretended to be a country music fan who was very willing to explain the intricacies of the game while also adding in his own personal takes on life.

The conversation was, shall we say, only slightly less annoying than a Matthew Lesko infomercial.

I changed seats in the sixth inning, and the home team went on to win.

What needs to happen is:

- I need to find a good present for Kirsten. She's not easy to please, but she's been one of the best friends to me over the past 8-9 months or so. And I'd be a jerk to not do anything about her birthday. But how do you shop for a shopaholic?

- The thing known as "resnet" needs to get its ass together and start working. That is for Erin's sake, not just selfish reasons.

- The 15th of this month needs to hurry up and arrive. I have something like $50 to last me until then. That's not really enough. Nuts to The Agency (for docking my check), Tri-Met (for increasing fares) and jerks, everywhere. Yes, you, you stupid jerks.

(mental note: I owe Chinto's Burritos two dollars and fifty cents. Oops.)

Okay, maybe it's rained measurably a couple of times this summer. Actually, Thursday or Friday morning I woke up around 5am and noticed it sprinkling early that morning, and actually witnessed this. But it was also 70+ degrees coming out of a day where it hit 95 here (at the airport, one of the coldest areas in town) and I swear it was the worst time I've ever had trying to sleep that night. So I have to say this. Hi, you, with the perception that it rains all the time in Portland. Yeah, you. It really doesn't rain in the summer, not significantly, not often, hardly ever. It's only August now, all the grass has been dead since June, and I don't see it being rainy again until October. It never really is. This area can be pretty desert like. Well, minus the cactuses and such.

Well, I just wanted to complain about something, other than my own life. Sorry. Back to listening to acoustic jams about Texas now.
