If I had A Million Dollars...

If I had an interest in creating music, an interest in linguistics, and a lot of money to blow:

I would want to learn a native language, such as that of amazonian tribes or tribal african villages.
I would take some of my favourite music, and cover it in this language that has probably never been used for recorded music.

I would use my experimental music to raise awareness of these interesting groups of people, perform modern songs for these people in their native tongue, and be an all around neat guy.

If I already had celebrity status, it would go a long way towards having the money to spend on travel and getting the recognition worldwide for what I was doing.

Someone out there: do this!

Who is the most important man in your life?


Insert something here about my boyfriend and the fact that I am polyamorous and have several other lovers that are important in my life.


Oh shit, was I supposed to say something about my father? lol Sorry but my lover(s) is(are) more important, and I get on well with my pa. Also, his dad is pretty cool (entirely too fit for his age and happy). My mother doesn't talk to her father and subsequently, neither do I.

OH AND DONT FORGET JESUS!!!
hahaaaaaa... *implying Jesus is just a man*

Late train....

Posted on 2011.06.17 at 14:55
figure I wont just leave you guys hanging. this list was getting boring, but I might as well finish it up before posting anything else in LJ hehe

Day 26 - What kind of person attracts you.
Day 27 - A problem that you have had.
Day 28 - Something that you miss.
Day 29 - Goals for the next 30 days.
Day 30 - Your highs and lows of this month

other daysCollapse )

26 What kind of person attracts you - hmm, well I like furries, despite the drama that members of the fandom are known for. as far as looks go, I like taller people with more tattoos and piercings, but thanks to my lower-than-average libido, looks dont matter as much as personality to me.

27 Problem you've had - As a kid, I would not do my homework at all. I had trouble obeying the authority figures assigning the work, though in class work I always did very well on. I transferred to an alternative program based on self motivation and individualized learning where I chose all my assignments myself.

28 Something you miss - I miss when my friends and I could actually plan things like night hikes or outings together. now that a lot of us work in the same office, we never do much outside of it. thankfully I was invited to poker tomorrow night. so I will do that ^_^

29 Goals for the next 30 days - I intend to not overdraft or anything, and manage my money alright with Shaun spending a few months in NY state.

30 Your highs and lows of this month - I went to visit both Philadelphia PA and Potsdam NY this summer, visiting my grandfather for his 91st birthday and then Shaun's home for.... relaxing? hehe it was kind of boring in and around Potsdam especially since shaun's dipshit brother did not get the car fixed for us (possibly intentionally) so we were stranded in a small town that had very little in it (half an hour to walk across town). though the actual down of the month was more likely the fight Shaun and I got in before I left. It put me in a rather depressive mood, even though he said it was "just a spat."

woo this one wil be a doozy

yikes, six days all in one?

Day 20 - How important you think education is.
Day 21 - One of your favorite shows.
Day 22 - How have you changed in the past 2 years?
Day 23 - Give pictures of 5 guys who are famous who you find attractive.
Day 24 - Your favorite movie and what it’s about.
Day 25 - Someone who fascinates you and why.

other daysCollapse )

let's DO this thing!

Day 20 - Education is important unless we want to live in a totalitarian dictatorship, because it encourages free thought. So you know, keep the sheep stupid, so they dont turn into beautiful individual snowflakes :P. Or, you know know, encourage individual beautiful snowflakes, so they don't turn into totalitarian dictators.

Day 21 - ONE of my favourites: Dexter's Lab, the old version before the new character design and voice actors.

Day 22 - In the past two years, I have finally grown comfortable with my non-sexuality and got a boyfriend who is mostly okay with it too, and have had to struggle with the subsequent sexless relationship. I've grown even more confident in my polyamory and of those whom I love.

Day 23 - 1, 2 (yum pirates), 3 (yay sexy accents!), 4 (omg it isn't a guy at all!), 5 (yay more sexy accents! :D). Yes sometimes a persons voice is what makes them super attractive. with two of these guys, the faces are okay, but the voices cement them into the list hehe.

Day 24 - The original Trilogy of Star Wars: including some changes in special edition (image clarity, masking correction, windows in cloud city), but not others (digitally inserted Jabba, Han not shooting first, music number in Return etc.)

Day 25 - Jesus fascinates me (whether or not he existed/exists) and he fascinates me because he preached love and compassion and so many of his followers preach intolerance and bigotry. But mostly, he was just a cool guy and I respect him.


Day 19 - Disrespecting your parents.

other daysCollapse )

19 - Hmm... umm.. huh.
The most disrespect I ever did towards my parents was towards my mother when I was still in late High School (omg surprise!). At the time, I was maturing into my nocturnal adult self, and started spending most nights as I spend them nowadays: on the internet chatting. I got in trouble for it with my mother often. With my stepmother too, a bit. Eventually, she found me online one night, and told me she would cancel AOL. I didn't have my own internet account or anything, so she would effectively cut me off from the only social life sad, geeky, young me had.

Apparently I can get scary when pretty desperate and pleading, because she got scared of me and promptly kicked me out of the house.

I guess it should be no surprise that I see my father a lot more often than my mom. She seems to have mostly forgotten the incident, or at least treats me like it never happened, going so far as to invite me to live with her to save money. But I suppose a part of me never forgave her for that, or other transgressions against me when I was younger.

Back when I was in 6th grade though, I did not disrespect her. I just was very honest to my teachers about the marks her nails had made on my arm when she held it forcefully and she ended up having to talk to social services. In hindsight, I was not holding her arm nearly as hard when she kicked me out of her house.

Day 18 - Your beliefs.

other daysCollapse )

18 - If a duck meowed on the 24th of April at approximately 16:21, will a rock stub your toe on tuesday? I would think this is rather important to understanding my beliefs, or completely unimportant. Maybe it was that one. The real question here is what my beliefs are. As a member of the Erisan Movement, I suppose I believe that randomness has a good deal lot to do with lots of things. Purple tastes interesting, by the way.

Discordianism could be about the same age as Kwanzaa. Some may argue that the religion was thought up in a bowling alley after an acid trip. Others may argue that a pelican cannot swallow his own pride. No matter what color your potato is, Alfred is pleased.

I suppose my beliefs are more in depth than simply "Hail Eris."

I do believe is some sort of divine, but as to the nature of that divine, I cannot really say. I like the [what I believe to be Kabbalist] belief that "to define the devine is heresy." However, the idea that the greek goddess of discord really is still mucking about causing all sorts of chaos would not surprise me in the least really. I also think pretty highly of humanism. I do believe that our thoughts can shape our reality. I read a theory suggesting that our brains are what split off possible reality timelines each time we make a decision, or something happens a certain way that could have been different. The online article claimed that most scientists support the theory.

I also believe in beings that live on earth such as Fairies, Fey, Dragons or other such creatures. Obviously, I don't really have any way to substantiate their existence, so I don't. I just sorta have a hunch they're there.

Most of all I believe in an open mind. Given how we are still figuring out new things about how our universe works, I find it very possible that there are things we don't understand that seem superstitious to any science spouting atheist. I realize when I can't know and while I still have hunches about how it works, I will never try and force another to view it the same way.

I also believe that we can manipulate energy (see: Reikki healing), as well as in a subconscious collective thought. At the very least, I believe it is possible to connect with the minds of those around us.

I believe we as a species are evolving into something different. I believe that in the same way that we are made up of a conglomerate of cells, it is possible that we ourselves make up the divine is a similar conglomerate.

I believe in spirit animals, aka Totems. I believe that my spirit animals are Elk, Crow, and Fox.

That ought to give you a good idea of the sorts of things I will believe. As per always, none of my beliefs are set in stone. My beliefs seem to change over time, which think is good. I have a healthy curiosity in the spiritual and supernatural. I don't obsess over any of it though. I just enjoy thinking about it or reading about it ^_^

The faiths I seem to hold according to some random online survey are, in top 5 format:
5. Mahayana Buddhism (92%)
4. Liberal Quakers (92%)
3. New Age (96%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (99%)
1. Neo-Pagan (100%)
Thanks for clearing that up, Internet! :>

Day 17 - Your highs and lows of this past year.

other daysCollapse )

17 - This past year has plenty of highs and lows.

I believe it was around June that I visited David (Scratch) in Utah and went to Element11 with him. It was quite an amazing experience. I enjoyed it a lot. I felt like it was the most welcoming atmosphere I have ever been in. Like I did not need to worry about being myself at all. I could just star up a conversation with anyone there. And of course, the burning of the great wooden edifice temple (shaped like a pineapple) and the magnificent fire dancing show preceding the final bonfire.

And certainly this past week has been pretty memorable as well. I have been host to an international visitor. This David hails from down under and was in the states to visit some friends he had in Oregon and me here in Colorado. I am very happy with how we have spent the five days he was in town. Im also very happy that he could get some amazing photos of a real Colorado sunset. Is it just me or is the sky a great deal prettier in the winter? I definitely care for David quite a lot, and cannot describe how happy I was to see him again. ^_^

The illness I was struck with right before David flew in is pretty memorable as a low of the past year. Being sick is never fun. Our move to the new apartment could have gone a lot smoother, and more streamlined. And let us not forget our former landlady, whom I still strongly believe misappropriated our security deposit to fix expensive problems that were there when we moved in. I have maintained a steady debt for the medical fines from November of 09. However, since I pay regularly to my Capital One credit card, the debt does not affect my credit score at all, and I actually have a rather high credit score.

I am sure there are plenty of other highs and lows that do not immediately come to mind, but I suppose this is a good start as to my highs, and my not so highs. So here's to staying high! ;D

Day 14 - Your earliest memory.
Day 15 - Your favorite tumblrs.
Day 16 - Your views on mainstream music.

other daysCollapse )

14 - I have few distinctive memories from when I was very young. I recall a birthday party in south Boulder (the house we lived in when I was born), but much of that I remember from the recording of it. I do recall once I sat on a bee. Indeed, it is the earliest memory I have of being stung, and because it is such a minor and vague memory, I can infer that I was not allergic, and the sting was nothing more than a sting.

I do remember the first nightmare that I ever had. I was living in the big house on 4th St (the house I associate with my childhood, where we moved to after we left Macky Wy) It took place in the Museum of Natural History. I stepped onto the down escalator as the rest of my family stepped onto the up one. I was so young that I did not know how to say "last night" when I told my father I had a nightmare.
"I had a nightmare ... tonight ... but yesterday." A young me told my father the next morning.

15 - What's a tumber? I have never used Tumbr to read news, or interesting stories, or ANYTHING. I Don't know who uses it, or who is known. So Instead I will tell of the only blogs I follow.

I read The Daily What. Indeed, it is how I learn about new memes and Plinket reviews before any of my other friends. Most of the posts are internet culture things and random videos great for when bored. I also enjoy a lot of the articles it links to, especially science ones. Additionally, I follow a blogger on livejournal, whose views seemed close to mine, and was also polyamorous. He seemed to know a lot more than me about things, like politics, which I do not pay as much attention to. Hop over and read his Christians in the Hand of an Angry God "blagoserial" (I made that word up! Ha). This links to part 5, which links to the rest. Admittedly, I do not read many of his long winded posts anymore, nor do I spend much time at all on LJ here. :O

16 - Mainstream music? I guess I dont understand because I dont pay much attention to what is mainstream. The reason I don't listen to public radio is the commercials, not the music they play. However, I find the online radio I use (Pandora) plays much music I like that I have never heard on any station.

There is plenty of "mainstream" music I absolutely hate, but I don't whine about why someone with "no talent" makes so much money, I just don't listen to music I don't like. Even if I hear it, I just don't listen. Course, that never poses much problem to me. music I don't like doesn't offend me the way it might an audiophile. There is also lots of popular music I like. Just because a bunch of other people like a musician doesn't mean I like them more, or less. I don't really care how mainstream music is, if it is to my liking, I like it. If not, it doesn't matter.

The kind of music I prefer is Jazz Fusion, Progressive Metal, and Progressive Rock, though the range of stuff that plays on my Pandora holds a much greater variety. Weren't you paying attention when I listed 10 songs from the station? Tsk Tsk, looks like you should catch up :P

Day 10 - Discuss your first love and first kiss.
Day 11 - Put your ipod on shuffle and write 10 songs that pop up.
Day 12 - Bullet your whole day.
Day 13 - Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.

other daysCollapse )

Hey folks! so I missed multiple days. Here's there longest "daily" post yet.... for me..... today....

10 - Hoo boy, this might be awkward, since he and his wife are two of the few people who still use Elljay, but here goes.

We met in a world history class. I did not start liking him for at least 2 years. By then, he knew my interests. I was careful though. My last crush had been straight, and I did not want my feelings so unreciprocated like that again. But this time was not the same. He shared a curiosity with me, and my heart stepped the feelings up. Before the first kiss was the first snuggle as I grabbed his arm and held it.

later he told me he liked that, and I went a little further. It was not too long before we first tried kissing, both inexperienced and shy.

when he decided to not get with me as my boyfriend, I was hurt and ended our fling. my first actual relationship was a rebound from my first love. but that's another story.


11- I dont have any music on my ipod, so you'd be stuck with me listing the few apps I have. so I'll just use Pandora instead.
Super Mario Bros 2 Overworld -by- The Advantage
The Sound Waves Reversed -by- Man or AstroMan?
Weapons of Mass Distortion -by- The Crystal Method
Kashmir -by- Bond
Green Teeth -by- Spaced Out
An Orange and a Blue -by- The Appleseed Cast
Nonografistole Addendum (Trampled To Death By Love) -by- Irepress
La Villa Strangiato -by- Steve Morse
I Appear -by- Innerphase
Forty-Two -by- The Afters

Ya know, I'm pretty happy with that list. My Pandora station rocks!

12 - I'm omitting things done through-out the day. :D
~08:30 - Wake up on friend's couch at the home office I work at
~08:31 - Turn on laptop.
~09:00 - Start work.
~13:00 - Lunch/meeting.
~17:00 - Leave work.
~17:30 - Arrive at home.
~18:30 - Pick up Dave from Airport.
~19:00 - ???
~19:30 - Profit!

13 - Well, gee, I'd sure like to pay the Aussie visiting me this week a visit someday. Australia is some place I have always wanted to go ever since I was a kid. I love the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the interesting fauna of the outback. And never mind how sexy the accent down under is ;P of actual places I want to see, it is at the top.

I want to travel the world, and see a lot of it though. India, Japan, Europe, I want to see it all some day.

Historically, I travel more places to see people than to see places. and I think that might stil be true if I could go anywhere I want. There are a lot of people I'd like to go see still. So That's where I'd like to travel to :3

as for move to, I want to live in an Arid or Semi Arid part of the coast (I'm lookin' at you, West Coast!). but if I dont move there, I would happy to just be near the ocean. Guess I'm drawn to it like Legolas is, XD
