Excuses Excuses

Sorry, I haven't been on or posted in a while.  I was feel more sick than normal for a while and I was also really busy with school, cleaning my place, and try to get everything set for the Rammstein concert which I am for sure going to be attending.
Mot much else to update on, other than that I am 100% sure I am going to the show.
Hmm....  I had a math test today and it really beat my ass.  I got about 80% really quick but there were some that took the rest of the class I had left,  I totally forgot how to do them.
My car was acting up the other day and stalled out while I was leaving campus, that made me pretty worried.  I would hate to have to get a new one.  I am pretty attached to my car by now.

Well, I guess that's all for now.  Post again later, I mean it this time.

Finally went to Best Buy and replaced my iPod Touch.  I got an 32gb iPod Touch 4th gen, I had a 3rd gen.  Luckily I had a warranty on my old one and didn't have to pay too much.  I think all in all I only payed like $60 to replace it.
The last one got all fucked up from an error in the software update.  Syncing it now.  It's so nice to have a working iPod again.  So damn useful!

In other news I think I need to see a doctor.  I've been getting worse.  For the past almost 2 years I have had chronic stomach and abdominal issues, that made me not want to eat and for some time I didn't and if I did I got sick soon after.  So over that time I lost like 30 pounds, not that I'm complaining about losing weight but I don't like losing it that way.
But lately I have been getting head-aches every day and wanting to sleep non-stop.  even if I sleep for 12 hours I could probably lay back down and fall right back to sleep.  However, I can't seem to sleep at night.
And lastly I have just recently noticed that I am getting dizzy from time to time and I can't focus my sight very well.
I have an appointment to see my eye doctor soon and I will see if there is a problem with my eyes but I don't know.  I am hoping to get contacts this visit.  But I am concerned about my eyes because my dad is pretty much blind in one of his eyes.  Shit sucks.

Well that's all for now, post again later.

Fun End to a Nice Day

Was a long day but pretty good (for me).  All my classes seemed to go pretty well.
Had an awesome dinner; ham, cheese, and jalapeno omelet and hash-browns!
Then my buddy came over and we worked on cleaning all this shit up, got pretty far for one night.  Still have some work to do though.  Might even get some more done or finished tonight.
Currently watching "Red vs Blue" by Rooster Teeth.  If you haven't heard of it or seen it or something made by them you really need to.  Shit is very funny and epic.  Here is a link.

Still no news as to how much it's going to cost to go to the Rammstein concert.  I'll keep you all filled in.

That's it for now, post again later!

School Shooting in Texas

Just found out about some breaking news after getting home from my morning class.
It seems as if there was a shooting at the University of Texas.
From what I hear there was at least one suspect that opened fire with an automatic AK-47 in the campus library.  From all I am hearing there are no by-standers killed in his assault but one thing is clear: and that is the shooter is dead from what seems to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds.  The campus is still on lock-down and the authorities are searching for a second gunman, due to different descriptions of the gunman.
If you want to read more check this link.  I am sure there will be more soon.

In my morning news, it was rainy and I had a quiz in my morning class that I was not prepared for.
Also, thanks to some stranger I was not pulled over.  He flashed his brights at me to warn me there was a cop in the drive to my left running a speed trap.  I do the same and I implore everyone else to as well.  We all need to look out for out fellow drivers.

Well that's all for now; post again later.

My Day in a Nut Shell

So, today may have been the best day of my life.  I found out some of the best news I have ever heard today not long after my last post.
I was researching for something to post on my other blog, a Rammstein Fan blog and I found out that Rammstein is going to be having a concert in the US for the first time in 10 years!  Needless to say I have already made up my mind that I am going, no matter what.
The next good thing about it, is that it's going to be in NYC at Madison Square Garden, which is only like a 9 or 10 hour drive!
The tickets go on pre-sale October 8th and I am going to get one.  I am trying to get some friends and my brother to go.  But if nothing else I will get a ticket and one of my friends is going with me just to go to NYC.  I am super psyched about this!

In other news I would like to once again thank everyone for the support.
My mother seems to be doing well.  She just needs to learn to listen to the doctor's orders and not try to work so much.  I'm worried she will rip her stitches because she keeps insisting on doing things she shouldn't.
Also, the soc test wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be and the evening played out pretty well.

Well, I guess that's all for now.  Post again tomorrow.

Two Milestones Reached!

I got on to look at the blog this afternoon and I see that I have hit the 10 followers milestone and the 500 view milestone on this page.
Thanks to everyone that is coming to see my blog and commenting and supporting me!

In recent news I have a sociology test this evening and I'm not sure if I'm ready.  I think I get the material just not sure if I get it enough, y'know?  That and I have my math class today and I have yet to do the work from last week let alone this week!  I need to get to work on that soon.  have until 5, when I have to leave but it's so damn boring.....
Also, it's workout day.  Have to get that in before I go and have time to shower before I leave for class.  Damn, my procrastination!

Well, that's all I got for right now.  Post back later.

Thanks For the Positive Support Everyone!

As I said in the title, thank you all for the support.  It seems as if the bedbugs ARE gone.  But we will see in the coming weeks.
As for my mother, she is supposed to be getting out of the hospital today, but she has yet to be discharged.
They said, they want her to eat there before she leaves.  But the doctor said all looked well and that they don't think it spread and they think they got it taken care of.   Now the incisions just need to heal, and that should take a few weeks.  So she won't be working (at least she shouldn't be) working for a while.
My place is still a mess, I haven't finished or even gotten back to cleaning my desk.
I think I might have a mild case of hoarding compulsion.  I see this stuff and don't think I should get rid of it but I know i won't use it.
I just need somebody to come here and throw it out for me.

I also want to tell you all about a book.  I have been reading this book for a few days now.  And I just think everyone needs to know.....  just how absolutely shitty this book is.
The book is "Life in Year One: What the World Was Like in First-Century Palestine" This book is just terrible.  I am having to read it for my World Civilizations class for a report, and I would not recommend it to anyone that I didn't hate.  The author "Scott Korb" cannot stay on topic, his writing style is shit, it's hard to read, he is unprofessional, he doesn't present the book in the standard historian way, and he at one point in the book says that he will be using his imagination to fill in parts he doesn't know for fact.  That last one just makes this book worthless.  A historian should never write something in to be fact that he has no evidence for.  How can i tell by what I am reading what is true fact and what is made up by him?  I can't making this book useless in the sense that you cannot learn anything from this book with any amount of certainty.  He also loved putting in these huge foot notes that take up half a page.  That is not how footnotes are supposed to be used.  Often times in these footnotes, he didn't stay on topic either.  And many times the entire footnote had nothing to do with the thesis of the section I was reading.
That concludes the book review portion of my blog.

Well, I think that's it for now, post back later!

Last Post About Bed Bugs (Hopefully)!

Haven't posted all day.  Because I spent a lot of today cleaning and then I had class.
I removed my two twin beds and box springs from the house and took them to the landfill.  That was fun.  I had to pay to throw them away.  I also removed my couch so there are only two places to sit for now; my computer chair (I don't think anything could have gotten in it) and my gamer chair (I am not getting rid of that).  Sleeping on the futon in the guest room if I can clean it off early enough tonight.
My dad came and sprayed the carpet and base boards and all over so that will likely have stopped them in their tracks; so they won't came back or spread to other parts of the house.
My room is looking crazy.  I needed to clean it anyway so I stared sorting and gave up half way through.  I will need to work on it Friday or this weekend some time.  Going to be moving everything (that is left) around and make more space.  In the process of cleaning my desk this afternoon it seems to have gotten even messier.  I can't do anything on it but type and move the mouse; no free space at all.
My  mom is going to the Cleveland clinic tomorrow to have an operation done to remove a cancerous growth in her colon.  They think it should be pretty good after that.  It's one of the lowest forms of cancer and they caught it kind of early so they don't think it spread and if so not too far or bad.  But they won't know for sure until they have gotten in there and see.
I have classes tomorrow, with exception to my evening class, it was canceled (very nice!), but instead I am tutoring somebody and I have a paper due electronically by the time that class would start anyway.  Full day tomorrow.  I'll  most likely post in the evening.  If I can I will post sooner, but we will see.

But that's pretty much all the news I have for now.  Post later!

Bed Bugs and Bad Drivers

Well still no more news on the bed bug problem.  I have just been sleeping on the couch (I have yet to clean off the futon to sleep on).  As expected I have stopped getting bites, so I know it has to be from my bed.

In other news I was almost in a crash today.  I was turn left at an intersection on my way to a class and some bitch ran a red light and almost slammed into me, luckily I sped-up when I saw her coming and she missed me.  She was looking at me like I was in the wrong.  I had a green light, she didn't.  I know, I use that route four days a week, multiple times.  People rally need to learn how to drive properly and PAY ATTENTION!  I am sick of having to change my driving patterns and habits because people don't know how to drive properly in traffic.  Well that's all for this post.
Have more classes later today; post back later.

Monday, September 20, 2010


I knew these bastards had to be here somewhere.  As I was laying in bed trying to sleep and not think about creepy crawlies I just couldn't stand it anymore. So I jumped out of bed hit the lights and tore down my bed again.  Only this time I saw them.  Little fuckers must have been hiding in the box-spring or something.
Now guess where I'm not sleeping until I figure out how to solve this.  That's right, my bed!

Now I have to find some other blankets and pillows that haven't been in my room to sleep with and I guess I'm going to be sleeping on the couch tonight.  Maybe if I get the Futon cleared off tomorrow I can sleep in the guest room.
Well, for now it's good bye and good night, post back in the morning.

Bed Bugs Report

So I checked my mattress and blankets and I didn't see any sign of bed bug.  But instead I saw a shit ton of spiders.  I think that's the culprit.  Some of these bites did seem way to big to be from bed bugs.
So that's good news.  I'll have t go to the store tomorrow and get some insect spray to keep the spiders out of my room.  I don't mind them anywhere else.  Just not where I sleep.

In other news I have been made aware by Best Buy that they won't be getting any more 3G iPod Touch 32gigs in.  They told me I would likely have to upgrade to get a replacement (mine fucked up during an update and is not a shiny paperweight)!  This is bullshit because if that's true I will have to pay like $50 to get a replacment when it should be free and I might even have to pay for a new warranty!?  They are try to gyp me for sure.  I'm going in there tomorrow and telling them how it is.  I'm not paying for anything.  Either they will order me a 3G 32gig or they will be upgrading me for free or I'm going to make it hell for them!

If anyone wants to see/follow my other blog here is the link.
More or less it's just a Rammstein fan page.  But I will be posting there as well as here most days giving updates on Rammstein, their tours, songs, band members, new items for sale in the store, that sort of thing.  Tune in if you'd like.

I'm out for now, post later.

"The Rally to Restore Sanity" and "The March to Keep Fear Alive"

Not sure how many of you may know about Jon Stewart hosting a march on the National Mall on October 30 of this year.  It is to be a march of moderates against extremist right and left wingers.
On that same day Steven Colbert is hold a "rival" rally to keep American's afraid and under control of the government.
Many people think this is just an act to get publicity, which I partially agree with, but I think more than just satire is going on here.
This is an attempt to show everyday people (moderates) that these extremists are morons.  Both sides throw the most ridiculous claims at their rival party.
Even Colbert's rally is using this to show American's what these extremist groups are doing to us.  They are just try to make us afraid so you vote for them, and that is not how an election should work in any developed and civilized country, or any country for that matter.

I urge anyone that has the means to attend one of these marches to do so!  You will be helping put American politics back on the correct path.  And I'm sure it's going to be a blast!
That's all for now, post again later!

Bed Bugs!

I think I might have fucking bed bugs.  I keep getting these bug bites and I don't think they are mosquito bites.  I only notice them after I wake up in the morning besides I am pretty used to mosquito bites so they don't bother me like they used to.
I'm going to check my matress, sheets, blankets, and clothes today.  If I don't find anything I'll have to rethink this.  I guess it could be mosquitos, I know there is a big rip in my window screen from a hail storm.  i saw one in my room last night too.
Hmm.  Don't know yet, just have to look and see.  I'll post back later with an update on this situation.

My Rammstein Stuff

Decal in the back window.  I think it looks pretty sweet!  What you think?

Rammstein flag I got hanging above my TV.
 "Germany" poster with Till in the center and the rest of the band around him.  I really love this posters.
Last poster I have (for now that is), "Reise, Reise" album poster.  Shit's so cash.
Lanyard and key-chain/charms.

Good Morning My Blog!

I slept well for the first time in a while.  Feels good man.
I think it's going to be a good day, not sure what I'll do today but it'll be something and I'll have a fun time I'm sure.

Going to put the decals in my car windows here pretty soon.  I'll be sure to take pictures of my piece of shit car to post on here.  I'll shoot and post my other stuff while I'm at it.

Think I want to go see a movie today, sounds like a good idea.  But what to see and who to see it with?  Hmmmm.

Well that's it for this post, I'll post again later, as always.

Friday, September 17, 2010


So if you couldn't tell by my last post, I am a HUGE Rammstein fan.
I almost think of that as an understatement.  I have not heard a Rammstein song I didn't love, and I don't expect to ever hear one.
They are almost all that I listen to.  My room is not covered in Rammstein and I love it.  I have a Rammstein tattoo and I want to get an other with a lyrics quote or something like that.
I would kill to get to see them live but unfortunately for me and many other American fans of Rammstein they do not preform in the US.  I missed my chance to see them in Quebec because I didn't have the money but next time they are that close I will not care.  I will spend money I don't have to see them.

I decided to start making a Rammstein blog too.  Haven't gotten anywhere with it yet but I hope to have something decent within the next week so bare with me.
Here is the link to it if you want to check it out when I am done.  I will post here with updates on it as well as on there.

Soon my shitty car will not just be a shitty car, but a shitty car with Rammstein pride all over it!

Still haven't made the video but I am taking into consideration what "Jemz" said.  But I may just make one about Rammstein or maybe respond to some videos I have been meaning to respond to.  Or make videos about my take on what's going on in the world, mostly America since that is where I live.  But still unsure not going to make a decision until I get some solid time to get a good idea of how far I can take them and how interesting it would to make and for others to watch.

But for now I will just leave you with my ideas.  What to you think?

Post again later tonight, or most likely, tomorrow.


The title explains my current state.
I just got my shipment from The Fatherland (Germany).  It's got all the Rammstein stuff.  I'll get some pics and post them when I get the chance.  I was so excited I already have the posters and the flag up.  Have to wait for my car to dry before I put the decals on my windows though.
The messenger bag is sweet and I finally have all the albums.  I was unable to find "Herzeleid" anywhere, no stores had them and you couldn't get them on iTunes in the US.  So I figured I'd order it directly from them.

In other news, no classes today, thinking I might get a hold of some friends and hang out with them.

YouTube video to come soon.  I have the cam set up and microphone working.  Might clean this place up before I record for the first time.
Still unsure what to make a video about.  I always have trouble deciding on things like this.  I've been wanting to start a new painting too but not sure what to do.

Well see, I'll check back in later.

Twice in one day?

This is starting to get crazy.  I'm posting again?
The answer is yes, I am.

It's raining like crazy out right now.  I don't want to have to drive to my GSW in this.  I am going to leave earlier than normal so I don't have to rush in this.

Still getting used to this whole thing.  Also, I'm thinking about starting to make videos on YouTube.  I'm not sure yet but we'll see.  I have a webcam, and not a bad one either, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Post again later!

Second post!

Two days in a row!?
I'm starting to understand how this work a little better.  I've been tinkering with settings and whatnot and it seems to already make much more sense than last night.  Maybe because I'm fully awake, maybe because I am learning a bit more about it, who knows.  It's joust crazy how nice and complex some people's blogs on here look and mine seems so plain and mediocre.

Have a class in an hour or so, chemistry.  It's extremely easy, I think I should have went with something more challenging it's that light of a class.  Then GSW later this evening and I'm done with classes until Monday, woot woot!  I'll get plenty of time to play "Halo Reach", which I find to be a great game by the way.  I recommend it to anyone that has an Xbox 360.

I guess that's all for now.  I'll post again later.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010


I've never thought making a blog would be so difficult.
I made this blog just to try it out and see how it feels.  Never blogged before, never really thought I would get too into it.
Hopefully I'll get how to do this soon.

Anyway, this is my first post on my blog so how 'bout I blog a bit, eh?

I really should be sleeping.  I have a class in the morning and I don't think it's a good idea to miss class two times in a row.
Found out some surprising new the other day.  More about that later.  For now I need to hit the rack.
