Tuesday March 28
Poptart came down for a visit from Ottawa. Sadly, Herbert
joined him, but was actually pretty well behaved. Saturday
Red joined us for the evening and to watch the hockey
game. Went for a hike Sunday at Spencer
Gorge. It was neat to look over the edge of the
cliff. I took a lot of photos as per usual, and perhaps
some will turn out decent. Being out there takes my
mind off the everyday bullshit, which is greatly appreciated.
Sure I had to wear my mittens but other than that it
was a great day out. Poptart managed to escape without
Herbert. That’s right, that fluffy bastard was
left at my place. Luckily, he’s got a new friend,
the monkey that was thrown out of his last house. Perhaps
Herbert can help him sort out his feelings and this
monkey can go on to live a productive life. The poor
monkey was never even given a name.
Speaking of photos, I once again got a number printed
off (this time without borders) to be put into the cool
frames I was given. (Each holds 12 normal sized photos.)
I also got a number of larger prints done which have
been put into proper portfolios. There is a gallery
owner up north that is interested in having some of
my photos put up her gallery so finally she’ll
have some to select from. Hopefully she likes a few.
I’m hitting that point where I’m not sure
what else to do. Basically I know that I have to start
playing with the camera a bit more now that I fully
understand all the settings (pretty much). I’ve
been experimenting a bit so I think I just need to push
it a bit further. As for where all this is heading,
I have no idea. It’s something that I enjoy and
I’m happy for that.
Did I say I was happy? Yes, yes I did. I’m happy
with photography for the most part. As for happy in general,
I can’t say that at the moment. While nothing is
horribly wrong, last week was frustrating. I was forced
to say goodbye to an online friend of mine, which sucks
a lot. It sucks a lot, because there are times in life
where you develop friendships with people, care about
them but due to their treatment of themselves or you,
the friendship must end. While it’s a shitty thing
to have to do and go through, sometimes it’s simply
for the best. For anyone else out there who has had to
say goodbye, you’re not alone.
With all that being said, it’s my mission this
week to not let this get to me like it did last week.
I need to start getting stuff done again. So, this week
should bring new content to TID as I will be trying
to focus on that instead of all the other shit going
on in my head at this point in time.
makes me think of questions.
There was a show about pyramids on the other day, talking
about how those in Egypt were created for the sole purpose
of putting a dead person in it and that’s it.
I think that they were silly to spend so much time and
effort on something that, after shoving a dead pharaoh
in it, would be sealed off and never used again except
to look at. That’s just stupid! Why not create
a few extra rooms within it for use by those still around?
A room for special worship or meetings or something.
Seems to be a bit of a waste to have that large of a
structure around but not be able to go in it or anything.
Why don’t we have apartment buildings shaped like
pyramids? I think that would be pretty cool, especially
for the person at the top. Sure you couldn’t fit
as many people in it as a rectangle/square building
but at least it’d be interesting to look at. All
buildings around here look the same. Let’s face
it, in 1000 years they’ll be digging through our
dumps and wondering if we ever accomplished anything
interesting besides how to make shit that rots away
underground for centuries. I can’t honestly say
I’ve seen any modern building that can in any
way compare to the pyramids and other large structures
made back then. Now all we get are boring boxes and
when they put in some funky glass or water fountain,
it’s suddenly creative and new. How boring. Everything
is beginning to look the same in every city. The big
stupid Home Depots and Walmarts, the poorly planned
out malls filled with chain stores, boring gray apartments
and the huge expanses of houses that all look the same.
Then everyone wonders why kids sit indoors all the time
and get fat. The outside is now devoid of real nature,
parents can’t deal with the idea of germs, scare
their kid shitless about being outside to begin with
and a backyard is now a 2 foot by 2 foot patch of grass.
So yea, back to the point, why build the pyramids to
be sealed off and never used again except to walk around
and awe at?
I'm sick of them. I want
them out of here. If you have any suggestions on how
to sell them quicker, then
let me know.
rocks. Sit back and watch this demo of a game that
will be coming out. It's total insanity in all the right
