Did this again for giggles 3 years later. I hadn't ever tried a drink the first time I took it; this time I did a bit better. I'd really like to work on beer IRL though, I loves it.
Your Score: Bacardi 151
Congratulations! You're 155 proof, with specific scores in beer (100) , wine (116), and liquor (130).
All right. No more messing around. Your knowledge of alcohol is so high that you have drinking and getting plastered down to a science. Sure, you could get wasted drinking beer, but who needs all those trips to the bathroom? You head straight for the bar and pick up that which is most efficient.
time for a return to blogland. i think i just failed out of college and i'm not particularly interested in trying to get back in, so i might as well have this to keep me accountable for actually getting stuff done.
goals for the next week:
- break difficult news to parents, work out financial and location issues (you guessed it, this is the fun one)
- stop listening to Hrvatski - Insect Digestion Melancholy constantly (fantastic song though it may be)
- finish off one of my electronic pieces, and by 'finish' i mean 'make longer than 2 minutes'
- read catcher in the rye and return to dylmeister... i should do this tomorrow, as i have nothing else on the menu (except for in the literal sense, since i attended the local grocery establishment yesterday)
- apply at best buy and blockbuster for great justice
- survive first full work week in months
- cope with new status as a plebeian
i enjoy reading old entries. who doesn't? it's cool because i tried to be funny at the time and it wasn't funny while i did it quite as much as it is now that i forgot it so i can enjoy it as if someone else said it. that or i'm a vaintacularly conceited prick.
off to sleep.
Tonight I reinstalled soulseek and went at it. I originally thought it to be a cause of random lockups, but found that to be sound drivers (a common cause). Thank god - my computer works now! :D
Anyway, tonight I started off by downloading a better quality version of Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse. Devastating album. I continued by downloading Cryptopsy - Blasphemy Made Flesh & None So Vile. They're totally crazy. I continued by grabbing Circle Takes the Square - As the Roots Undo. Not because they're good so much as because they have an awesome name. I got the first album by Refused, Refused - This Just Might Be the Truth. It's got a very cool sound. I got some Low-quality Glassjaw Demos, Glassjaw - Impossible Shot & Don Fury Demos. REALLY good. I also got The Locust - Plague Soundscapes & The Locust EP. Not my favorite, but I know I'll like it at some point. The Jesus Lizard - Liar is probably the best album other than what I'll talk about in the next paragraph. I listened to it and it's REALLY good.
My prized catch of the night, though, was a shitload of Orthrelm. Orthrelm - Asristir Vieldriox & Iorxhscimtor & Norildivoth Crallos Lomrixth Urthiln & Live @Mumbo Arts Centre, Manchester 08-27-03. My balls are totally on fire for them. They opened for Dillinger Escape Plan when I saw them last year. They hardly have a website; their label has a list of their releases and years (no tracklists) and I have no idea how to find out where they'll play next. Either way, their releases are AWESOME. What I'm listening to now is a recording I found online a while back online. It's awesome. They're a guitar/drums duo. It's meticulously composed random-sounding shit. THEY RULE YOU.
Off to finish a paper on my ascent away from Christianity.
| Eh |
You scored 15 American Logic Points!

Congratulations! You're 97 proof, with specific scores in beer (60) , wine (50), and liquor (52).
All right...you're getting into the harder stuff. A good martini, a Mai
Tai or straight shots of hard liquor is what you're into.
| My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender: |
|You scored higher than 8% on proof|

...by being lucky, I guess. I don't drink :P
If I was allowed to know everything, I'd know why the transcripts I had USF send to UCF electronically 6 days ago aren't showing up on my application summary at UCF. I'd know whether my high school transcripts got through and why if they didn't. I'd know why they don't appear to have received the residency form I sent ages ago. I'd know whether I was going to be able to go to UCF next semester.
BUT MOST OF ALL, I WOULDN'T BE SAD OR NAUSEOUS.
Right now I'm missing Eighteen Visions in concert. In April I'm going to (by choice) miss Nile and Black Dahlia Murder. I can deal, I'm starting to learn concerts are for people who want to kick some ass/get their ass kicked. Especially when it comes to metal. I only go to learn new favorite songs and see if the bands can come up with as much technical ability as they produce with many takes in the studio. I've never been to a concert where the artist I was there to see produced something really unique or amazing, like a solo, with two exceptions - System of a Down played some cool stuff that wasn't on record before and Jonny Lang is an awesome guitarist. However, System of a Down's set was too short and didn't play all the songs I wanted to hear. Shut up. I know. And Jonny Lang is my girlfriend's favorite, so I was there for her, which doesn't make it any less of a good show, and it was good, but it doesn't count. Anyway... I'm content with no concerts for now, since I need to save money instead of spend it.
Billy Talent is fun.
I'm getting an iPod! Time to have something good to listen to in the car! I can walk around campus listening to songs instead of just humming them. Best of all, I can feel superior for not only listening to better music than people, but now doing it in front of them ;P Just kidding. I do hope people get curious and ask questions though, I enjoy talking about music. Just check out my interests, geez. I must seriously worry people.
So... Hope there aren't any problems with the limited space (I have 57GB on my computer - I'll have 20GB on the iPod). I'm trying to keep myself from getting a 40GB, but I'm worried. It's totally a subjective thing, according to how often I listen and how much variety takes place in a day. We'll see!
Oh, I think I'm starting a new thing where I point out nice feelings.
1. When you've been driving on the interstate alone for a while and you get off and everything's quiet with your car finally revving low.
I'm getting a lot of stuff done lately... English work not being chiefest among said stuff... But duh, I hate writing on command. See this? This here? I sometimes (SOMETIMES) like to write randomly. For no reason but that I feel like writing. To tell a few people about what's going on. But THAT'S IT! Oellz. Re-taking Composition I.
I'm presently unhealthily obsessed with Need for Speed Underground 2. It's so yummy. I'm preloading Half-Life 2 right now, using ANTRat's account... maybe I'll get some gameplay in tomorrow after I finish my Physics practice test... which I do really hope helps me do particularly well on the actual test tomorrow at 6PM. Wish me luck! It's the second-to-last test!
Sophie just bought a digital camera... good times :)
I just realized Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) got a lot of influence for his vocal style from Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin)... He's got a very different voice, but he uses a lot of the precisely-same vocal techniques. I think that's cool. Soundgarden is way-nifty. I still haven't heard two Soundgarden songs that sound remotely the same!
Well, it's good to know I'll be getting plenty of sleep tonight (this morning?) and still waking up in time to finish everything that needs doin'! Hopefully, Chad's DVDs hurry up and reach their destination in time for his departure for a long, faraway vacation. I personally think that if they left the country on the 11th (which they did) and it does indeed take the 3-5 days indicated by the more expensive Global Express shipment plan to Australia, they should be there by now! It's 5:30 PM there at the moment! I guess I should expect them at Noon tomorrow (normal mail time for Chad) which is in 18 hours.
Speaking of shipping, I haven't gotten stuff I ordered 12 days ago and haven't gotten a response to an email I sent 4 days ago querying on the status of my paid-for-but-not-shipped ordizzle.
OFF TO BED!@! NYEERRRMMMM
Appropriate music. The intro, I mean - before it gets loud. Beautiful guitars going on.
I don't usually make posts regarding how I feel, but rather the things I do and have for fun. But I wanted to express this and, um, well, this is a journal. I have no secrets.
Fits my mood. This winter, memories are rushing back of previous years at the same time. I'll be happy this Christmas, but lonely memories are coming back, mainly from last year. Last Christmastime was just me on the computer mom left behind when she went to California. She was being stupid when she went, but she' s back now. The computer was on the dining room table, so I actually sort of got my own little room. Every day was spent sitting in the dining room with the sunlight and the chill trying to track down every episode of Freakazoid!, talking to a few friends online, staying up really late, making Photoshop-filter desktops, listening to mostly instrumental rock and watching Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Family Guy.
At the time, I actually sort of liked the chilly lonely feeling. It somehow, for me, makes the world feel big and wonderful. Nighttime, lights, chill, contemplative music. Probably my favorite feeling on the sad end of the spectrum. I get a similar feeling watching Donnie Darko.
I suppose when finals are over and I have time to chill and no obligations to deal with... but that isn't happening. I need to find a way to make cash. I'd prefer sitting at home and doing nothing simply for the anti-stress factor. However, if I grab some moola, it'll last me past the Winter.
I need some de-stressification. Seriously.
