Beer and rugby and then gym and then food and more beer and rugby.
fucking pig roast today!

Then we play some punkrock and drink beer
Then we drink more beer and tear the flesh off of this swine!
sounds like an amazing day
Settled on a focus for one of my majors yesterday. Probably a good thing to do in my second-to-last semester right? Right. Data Mining/Cloud Data seems like the way to go considering that people seem to think I have a knack for it and it's frickin cool.
Gonna trek up to Rocky Mountain National Park on Tuesday to see the leaves turn. Ama take some pictures for y'all. Something tells me Bierstadt Lake is going to be breathtaking.
Debating whether to go pay my rent today or not. It's already two days late, but meh. I just don't know if I want to get dressed and walk across town or not.
The superintendents are old and don't care, as long as I am not too late. I was eight days overdue once and they were fine with it.
Moving sucks, luckily I drink a lot of cartons of beer, I've already filled up five cartons of just CDs.
Fuck my life.
Nice! Can't wait to see them. It's supposed to be 94F here next week
I started packing my books today. 4 decent sized boxes and my bookshelf isn't even half empty. I did pack up my e kit because the frame kept falling apart due to missing tightening pieces. I will set it up at a friend's place to jam soon but at least I know how to transport it and break it down properly.
Fuck dude, that's a lot of books.
I like to read. Wish I did more of it. Some of them are university text books that I have yet to sell.
What do you read, just generally?
Lately: Fantasy and Science Fiction
I've read business non fiction though and Star Trek novels and Ayn Rand stuff (boo hiss) as well as Hayek and Nietzsche and Don DeLillo. Depends on my mood really. Need to reread a bunch of shit since I'm 10 years older than when I first read it haha
Nice, I have the same thing too with needing to reread stuff.
I actually need to get into science fiction books more, always been a fantasy guy so I've neglected the sci-fi side of things.
I'm planning on tracking down the Alien novelizations actually.
Eating dinner, working, watching bad horror movies on Netflix. Wife's away for the weekend so I get some quality work time.
Do you like or have you ever read Arthur C. Clarke?
Imo one of the best science fiction authors.
William Gibson's material has always been my jam.
Childhood's End absolutely blew me away. Of the four or so novels of Clarke's that I've read, it's the most "human". I always got the feeling Clarke was more interested in ideas rather than character development
William Gibson is the fucking shit. Neuromancer is amazing, but Pattern Recognition is even better, in my opinion. Just an awesome writer.
Childhood's End and Rendezvous With Rama are two phenomenal books.
Science fiction in general privileges ideas and plot over character. I don't read this as a flaw, merely a placement of generic value. Lots of modernist literature privileges character and abandons plot. Hell, Ulysses is about two men wandering around Dublin for a day.
Weirdly enough The Diamond Age privileges character over plot towards the latter half of the book. Kind of falls apart in that regard.
I just want out for fried duck and waffles.
Sooo good. Just want to rewind and eat it all over again.
