it was that kind of morning…


this morning was an interesting morning, well i guess it wasn’t that interesting, but it was a good one… let me try to explain…

it was the kind of morning where… the coffee grinder produces the perfect texture and amount of coffee to create a brew that just tastes right.

it was the kind of morning where… your digital media player’s shuffle plays all good songs and in an optimal order.

it was the kind of morning where… it is bright and dry outside but with just enough of a chill in the air to make you feel fully refreshed.

it was the kind of morning where… you are able to stand comfortably on the bus, with ample room to let your messenger bag hang freely and have the ability to swap handrails at will.

it was the kind of morning where… you eventually notice that you have a little skip in your step and that makes you want to stand up even straighter.

it was that kind of morning…


festive plans


festive pops
Originally uploaded by velkr0.


so i’m heading home for christmas this year and i’m looking forward to the downtime and catching up with my family and all my old skool chums. i’m going to be spending plenty of time with my pops (well since i am not right now, while he lays in the hospital awaiting more tests) and with my grandpa, grandma, mom and sister. three weeks in onterrible is a long time, so i should be able to float around peacefully and chill out a lot. also going to be spending a lot of time with my friends as i usually do, but i think this time family is going to have a bit more priority… and well, ‘me time’ ranks right up there too…

that’s all for now, since thinking about xmas is really tough when it is sunny outside in vancouver in late november.


sunflower seeds


eating sunflower seeds is great…   even indoors when you have a red plastic beer cup as your spit container…  anyway… it’s may two-four… and it really feels like it…  not really sure why.. or how… or even what defines the feeling of may 2-4…  but i’ve got the feeling… and it’s just too bad i am not camping this weekend…   or hanging out in some sand dunes….  or drinking way too much and picking fights with random people…  or even just showing up at unexpected someones cottage… either way.. this weekend marks the start of summer… and this year.. it’s going to be a good one!

you work as a cash


getting voicemail not intended for you is often far too entertaining to keep to yourself… so enjoy my peeps… enjoy…



woxy is back!!


so i just noticed today that woxy is back and well… so am i!  here’s a brief timeline (thanks to The Enquirer):

October 1998: Oxford’s WOXY-FM (97.7) begins streaming audio on www.WOXY.com.
May 2004: WOXY.com ceases operation after Doug and Linda Balogh sell WOXY-FM for $5.6 million.
July 2004: WOXY.com returns as an Internet-only radio station from Longworth Hall.
February 2005: Named “Internet radio station of the year” by the international Plug Independent Music Awards.
February 2006: Asks listeners to pay $9.95 for audio stream access.
Sept. 15, 2006: Shuts down from lack of funds.
Oct. 10, 2006: Resumes broadcasting at 10:10 a.m.

ohh btw.. i was totally obsessed with woxy.com until they betrayed me by sticking a hook into my free-loving musical heart.. and then had the nerve to ask for ten bucks a month… grrr…(shit… i hung up posters for them… damn it!!)

anyways… here’s to woxy’s return and proof that music wants to be free!

hope they don’t screw up again!… and can’t wait for the return of the higher quality streams!

woot!


opportunity cost


i guess we all know that a continual ascension must lead to a point where it can no longer be sustained… however, it’s this level that we all strive to reach.. it’s this point that makes it all worth while and causes us do anything to protect it… but reaching this high spot usually just results in the start of a new low… a low that seems so low compared to the pinnacle you were just on…

to prevent this, i have always thought it was better to end something before it climaxed… intentional and definitive action can ensure nearly complete control over an outcome… unfortunately, this logical approach does not allow you to ever hit the absolute highest point… all it does, is protect you from hitting the lowest… in other words, it simply makes a great survival and proactive defense mechanism… however… can produce undesirable results during the best of times… during the discovery of great uncharted territories… in the places and situations that seem surreal and tend to excite… and it’s all these important experiences that suffer from this knee-jerk defensive reaction which can cause a premature retreat from your voyage…

i guess it’s still important not to jump off the edge… especially when there is still so much of the mountain to explore… but then again.. how else can i expect to use these wings i’ve grown and soar above the clouds…
