Can't you see what you've done to my heart and soul?
this is a wasteland now
A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
―D.H. Lawrence

"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"

"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
―Seneca

"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
―Daydream Nation

"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories — if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
―The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes

“The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road.”
― Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

Improving my vocabulary...
Wednesday, November 26, 2008
I'm excited about these potential Nutang Elections described in the forum.

There've been all these sorta-kinda changes for a while, and it's nice to see something new happening here. (Although the activity on the site could use a boost...)

---

I wrote up some words to learn on the blackboard in the front room (the one I'm sitting in now, where I usually use the not-crappy computer). I don't think they should be terribly difficult, and some of them I think I might've known before.

So far we've got

machinate(v): to plot
granivorous(adj): eating grain and seeds [My parakeets are granivorous :P]
intromit(v): to cause or allow to enter
previse(v): to forsee; to notify ahead of time
subjacent(adj): located beneath or below: UNDERLYING
terse(adj): free of superfluity: CONCISE
wastrel(n): one who wastes

I just picked random ones out of the dictionary that didn't seem completely useless. Well, okay, granivorous is kinda not so great for everyday speech, but eh, it's an easy one.

---

Thanksgiving tomorrow. -Sigh-

---

Feeling a bit tired at the moment, so I don't think I'll upload whatever pictures I have... maybe another post...

---Edit---

Playing Grim Fandango, and I can't get past this one part. It's frustrating me to the point where I want to scream and break the computer. Ugh.

Sausage tales
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
I have a book of Grimm fairy tales that I got for Christmas years ago... It's over seven hundred pages long, and the font isn't big like in some children's books. I've read the whole thing numerous times though, and once I begin a story again, I can usually remember how it goes.

There's one story about two sausages that has always scared me a little. It's called The Strange Feast...

Basically, a blood sausage and a liver sausage were friends. The blood sausage invited the liver sausage over for dinner, and the liver sausage agreed. When she got there and went through the door, there were a lot of steps, and she saw strange things on each one. There was a broom fighting a shovel, and a monkey with a big wound on its head, and so on and so forth. Then she got to the room where the blood sausage was and asked about all this. The blood sausage evaded her questions, or answered them in weird ways. Then the blood sausage said she had to go into the kitchen to check up on things. After she left, the liver sausage heard a voice say "get the hell out of here if you want to live." She took the advice and ran until she was out of the house. Then she turned around and saw the blood sausage standing at the attic window, holding a long knife. The blood sausage brandished it at her and cried, "if I had caught you, I would have had you!"

Can you see why this story has freaked me out? The not-your-typical-fairy-tale aspect of it doesn't really bother me, but it's just... weird. I mean, you've got these two animate meat products, which is in itself kind of odd, but the stairs part doesn't make any sense to me, and come to think of it; how does a sausage hold something?

And yet I still read it every now and then... it's like the song you can't get out of your head until you hear it again.

Alrighty, Praetorian has agreed to go through with the interview. If you guys have any questions, just tell 'em to me. If not, I'll do the whole thing myself. I'm trying to decide between just having some set questions, or doing it conversation-style....

---

Our Hamlet skit in Lit. seems, so far, like it was written by someone on crack. And that's... bad? We switched most of the genders of people, and changed it from everyone getting killed to people.... accepting... peace... and becoming hippies or something. And there's a food fight and singing gravediggers.... I don't really know what the hell we were thinking when we wrote this.

It's barely Hamlet anymore. Now it's more like we took a couple of things that were Hamlet, and twisted them so much it's hard to say what they started as.

Fortinbras became Freddie, and he's a hippie who launches into Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy for no apparent reason after telling people that "you have to stop killing, man, love your brother, violence is not the answer... you gotta make love, not war!" One of us picks up a bag of "Freddie's meds" (Jay wanted to put oregano in a bag, the teacher said no, so we're doing shredded green paper instead) and looks at him questioningly... he snatches the bag and says "I have a doctor's note for that! For the oregano! Because I'm oregano-deficient. Yeah."

Seriously I don't know what was going on here.

---

Emre kept stretching and getting into my personal space while we were working on that, so I scribbled all over his arm with my Sharpie. I've been wanting to do that for a while.... It didn't do much, though. He grabbed the cap, then dropped it, then asked the teacher if he could go wash it off.

I don't... even know how to descibe today...

Zombie bears
Monday, November 24, 2008
So on Friday at the Holiday Fair, I got bored and drew this:


I'd like to call it "Zombie Bear Apocalypse," but the problem is that there isn't really any apocalyptic-type stuff going on. I mean, the title would lead you to believe that zombie bears were attacking somewhere, but actually there's just a cyclone ripping through the forest and they're "fleeing."

Eh well.

So it seems like Praetorian might be the next interviewee. I haven't gotten a positive response yet, but I don't see why he'd decline. It's not like I'm going to ask questions like "have you ever raped babies while screaming 'HEIL HITLER!' at the top of your lungs?"

Although, y'know, for comedic shock value, that'd be good.

I started playing Grim Fandango yesterday, and reading Acid House by Irvine Welsh (an author I like, though his bluntness can be a bit startling at times, and it's difficult to read when everything spelled out the way it would be said in a Scottish accent.)

Got some homework to finish up, then maybe I'll play more of the game. Not much to do around Nutang, really. If (when?) Praetorian agrees, I'll have some questions to think up, though.

Yeah this post hasn't exactly been really exciting.... OH.

There was a pair of underwear on the ground at school this morning. And it was dirty. Pretty nasty. Looked like she crapped her pants and threw 'em away... but I haven't got anything else to report.

Happy trails.
