Sound of Sickness
Lyrics ©2009 Andrei Freeman

Hello sinus, my old friend
I've come to breathe with you again
With all that mucus badly dripping
Left my nose with tissue gripping
And my vision that was blinded from the pain
still it drains
until the taste of NyQuil

Yeah.. I'm just going to leave it there.

Science Fiction Author Michael Chrichton died unexpectedly Tuesday.

Chrichton was the author of a few of my favourite stories including "The Andromeda Strain."

His eulogy will none the less involve far too much scientific detail and not get around to the actual cause of death until about 2 hours in. Regardless of not comprehending any of this, his Eulogy will be fascinating.

The beauty is not in the product.. but this specific formula.

Found in a local grocery store today. Posted this to facebook earlier. Had to bring it here. Sorry for the slightly blurry quality.

I want to know how this wiring works between father and son.

Since having "A" I have discovered that I am an absolute pawn to media over small children.

Commercials with them make me contemplate the product. Movies with them make me defensive.

And don't get me started about Mufasa's death scene in "Lion King"

Recently, I've been watching "The Guild" - this is the program that effectively inspired "Dr. Horrible" to be made.

The basic plot is a series of "Insert your favourite WoW like game" addicts trying to interact with the real world.

The irony is not without merit, but it was really hard for me to enjoy this over time due to a need for suspending not only disbelief but also resigning some core issues that have developed as a parent.

I suppose it just goes too far into the realm of "Look how disfunctional online game addiction can make you."

To be honest I absolutely resent two of the characters, have no pity for the rest, and can not even laugh at the jokes about children. I don't know if I can make it through more episodes after numbers 6 and 7.

Don't get me wrong. I salute them for the work done on this guerilla project. It's amazing and a great step for independent-made-for-internet entertainment. I'm just personally not entertained.

I used to have a very macabre sense of humour. Verging on warped, twisted, and actually broken in 3 places likely needing a permanent pin.

But each episode just makes me more an more uncomfortable.

What happened to my sense of humour?
lordandrei: (Obama)
Please remember, I've already come out as a supporter of Barack Obama. The following post is tongue-in-cheek humour viewing the nomination process.

Translation... please don't flame.

I wish I were a better writer so I could flesh this out as a submission for the Onion.

It struck me today looking at some of the press on how the Clinton campaign is fairing sounded vaguely familiar. Looking up an old article with which I've borrowed liberally.

Senator Hillary Clinton Unwilling to Set Exit Strategy on Democratic Primary Conflict

Senator Hillary Clinton said Saturday that pulling out of the Democratic Primary now is not an option, rejecting calls by some super-delegates and many people asked in polls to start bringing the campaign to a close. “The Obama supporters and media are trying to get us to retreat. Their goal is to get us to leave before we have had a chance to show the democrats what a government that is elected and truly accountable to its citizens can do for its people,” Clinton said in her weekly radio address. “We will settle for nothing less than victory” , she said later.

Clinton's latest recommendation includes a new "surge" approach. Increasing the potential number of winnable delegates thus assuring final victory in the theatre of operations. At this point she does not see reason to let up on the campaign for the democratic nomination for at least 9 to 18 months.

My latest craze is Facebook.

It is probably one of the best "Social Networking" sites I've found to date.

And trust me.. this is something I've been researching since the dialup BBS days in 1979. (Yes, I'm hardcore)

Facebook has communities. I really needed to share this one.. because... well, it's just too damned true.

History: I was raised in both states of Pennsylvania. 15 years Eastern PA/ 15 years Western PA. I was NOT born in PA. I was raised by New Yorkers. So this rings very true on so many levels:

Community name: Dear Pennsylvania: Get the F*** Out of the Left Lane. Love, New Jersey

Community Description:
It's common knowledge that Pennsylvania produces the highest percentage of Left Lane Dicks out of all the states in the Union.

You know these people: there is absolutely no one in any of the lanes to their right, yet they insist on maintaining 55 mph in the left lane. As you nearly rear-end them at 85, you discover they are from Pennsylvania, throwing you further into a rage.

It's not uncommon for we New Jersey drivers to tailgate these people for miles on end, despite the fact that it would be easier to simply move over and go around their slow asses. However, we're from Jersey, and as always, we have a point to prove. We tailgate them, honk our horn, flash our high beams, and flip them off when we finally decide to go around.

So, Pennsylvania - Get the F*** out of the Left Lane.


Note: This is more about Eastern Pennsylvanians than Western (by experience)

A quick story explaining yet another reason why I am so happily in love with [livejournal.com profile] shimmeringjemmy...

For those few that don't know H has hearing aids. Over the years I've developed an international Andrei sign language system. It is not really grounded in any form of formal sign language beyond maybe years of pantomime.

I've gotten very good at conveying concepts and topics. For example this morning I successfully conveyed:

"You know, I realize the baby is still asleep, but as soon as you turn on the shower, he's going to wake up. Don't worry, I'll watch him."

None of this was voiced, only Andrei-signed. And I can assure you, she understood.

Granted, my signing has gotten complex enough that I often go into non-sensical but realistic looking signs. Today, I went into a sign after the above concept. H looked at me, nodded, swung her hips around and did a dance move that could only be described as a sideways froog. I gave her a thumbs up.

She'd countered my non-sensical mime with some of her own... And we'd agreed on our non-communication.

That was awesome. She hugged me and went off to the shower.

She is so muchly with the awesome :)

Heard from someone's post on LJ (will update with direct quote and link when I get it)

"Oh no, I can move effortlessly. I am a leaf on the wi--- no wait.. I know how that one plays out. Ahem.. I am a leaf on the water. So there."

From a post by [livejournal.com profile] intralimina:

A japanese site (done in flash) that provides a microscope into your browser explaining exactly how the cursor really works. Make sure you drag thru and around the microscope circle, clicking and double clicking to see how the technology of your browser really works.

I'm not going to go into a complete review of The Aristocrats which I finally saw on Netflix today while on baby watch.

Suffice it to say... It was amazing. I loved it. And I don't recommend it to anyone unless you can transcend vulgarity to see the meta-humour.

I would like to point out 2 things from the documentary. One is an fantastically performed version of the joke as a series of card tricks.

But the most important thing is a quote from Saint George Carlin. Because it hit me on a philosophical level at the core of who I am. It's an interesting quotation because I know it is fundamentally how I feel about the world and how I live my life. It seems to run utterly counter to the philosophy of Thelema that is also very much a piece of who I am. I see how the two paths run together in my universe. And it also makes it clearer to me when I've really pissed people off in my world.

I like this because it puts together an idea in a very simple and succinct way while not losing any of the impact of it's viciously subversive nature.

I do like finding out where the line is drawn, deliberately crossing it, bringing some of them with me across the line, and having them be happy that I did. - George Carlin

Possibly, I'll go further about "The Aristocrats" later.

This was passed to me by [livejournal.com profile] herne51

Very, very funny.

A reminder that in pop music, neither rhythms nor melodies are original anymore.

lordandrei: (what is that?)
I saw this on [livejournal.com profile] maeghanne's journal.

Which to those not with the program is in fact pronounced:
Mah'- egg" - uh - han" - uh -nay'

She posted a Chirstmas Carol

It made me muchly smile in my wry and twisted way.

I am putting it behind a cut because it is assuredly over mature material.

No clicky if you no old enough! ;) )

The word is Malapropastic

The definition of course is having a propriety for using the wrong vocabulary word.

Don't worry. There will be many, many (trying not to do a Police Academy impression) posts concerning Aiden.

I'm basically spending more time online. This should scare those of you who know me. But, since I have to basically spend lots of time sitting near and watching the baby, having the computer on my lap makes for a good way to pass the time.

This may even evolve into me getting more work done sooner.

So, checking the email...

This was sent to me by a co-worker from my short lived days as a Microsoft contractor.

It is unbelievably well done.
