Keep working, keep focused, and you can accomplish what you set out to do.

Make that moon.

So, yeah. Keep on going. You can do it.

Viking arrivals. [What Day Is It?]

October 9th, 2011 by

Do you know what today is?

It's October 9, and that means it's Leif Erikson Day.

Leif is credited with one of the first "discoveries" of what is now America.

And so, in his honor we present Joel Veitch's immortal (now deleted off of his site rathergood.com by fear of lawsuit) take on Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song."

With viking kittens.

Yup. You'll see; but beware... thar be auto-play ahead, matey.

Get in the ocean.

You should. And soon.

"Our Hearts Are Broken, But Not Our Spirit!"

September 11th, 2011 by
Our Hearts Are Broken, But Not Our Spirit!

In 2002 I won this huge plastic Made-In-China cup out of a claw machine at a Denny's in Bakersfield, CA. I won it on my second try by grasping the cup's handle with the claw.

On 2001/09/11 I was woken by a phone call from my roommate's girlfriend. She said turn on the TV. We did. I remember all my adrenaline dumping into my blood. My heart raced. I didn't understand what was coming through my eyes into my brain.

Now, ten years later, the United States Of America is a crippled nation with two wars depreciating everything that was good about it pre-9/11.

Who invades the wrong country? Who even does that? It reflects poorly. Very poorly. And should be remembered as such.

For now, we still have a cup to drink out of. And time to turn things back towards a more positive course.

Fuck you, I'm a wizard. [Fuck You Friday]

September 2nd, 2011 by

It's a Fuck You Friday.Friday.

Friday, Friday, Friday.

It's a Fuck You Friday. Always. No exceptions -- ever.

It's important. Always.

Now, this:

FURTHER EVIDENCE:

Wizards have powers. It's key to know that. And y'know what?

Fuck you.

Comforting Static In The Channel

STATIC STATIC STATIC

Familiar? Somehow comforting? Yes.

Comforting like an old shirt.

This tangent leads to this:

Jawbox playing "Static" live, 1992-02-15 in Houston, TX.

And back to this:

Anamanaguchi playing "Airbrushed" live.

Synopsis: Distortion is not a bad thing.

Innovation Equals Two Swords As One

April 18th, 2011 by

Innovation is where you find it inside one's self.

Observe:

This is "Ni-Ten-Ichi-Ryu (2 Swords Technique)" by Photek.

The song and video are inspired by the famed warrior Miyamoto Musashi's technique and koryƫ.

ni-ten-ichi-ryu

There are two explicit things to take away from this video:

1.) You can innovate as quickly as you can think of it.

2.) Sword-fighting sequences are awesome.
