a brand new day

whoa… what’s up with the new space background? i felt like something a little different for today, plus… i was checking out the website for final fantasy: the spirits within, and the movie is blowing my mind and i haven’t seen it yet. i can’t wait until july 11th when it comes out. if you’re wondering why such an “early” update. south park is on ) anyway… i need to get back to watching this and then off to bed i go. i’ll post again in the morning.

scary movie 2

i saw the first scary movie with my girlfriend, my mother, my two younger brothers and my dad a few months ago… around the time when kim and i first started dating actually… i couldn’t believe how off the wall the humor was, and just how focking funny the movie could be with it’s parodies of scream and other slasher flicks. so when my dad and my brothers asked me to go see the sequel with them today, how could i refuse? part two didn’t let me down. it mocked IT, what lies beneath, and other movies with a brand of humor that reminded me of the good ol’ days in germany where i’d watch ‘in living color’ every week. the cast was hilarious. the various situations in the movie were funny. though, the plot kinda sucked… you don’t expect it to be perfect in this kind of movie. if you get a chance to see this flick, give it a whirl. it wasn’t bad and it actually made me laugh a whole damn lot.

happy birthday usa!

wow… the united states just turned 225 today. can you believe it? it seems like it was just yesterday when i was born… two years after the country celebrated america’s bicentennial. i love the fourth of july. it’s a time to reflect on what a great country we live in and it makes me proud to be an american. it’s a time to reflect on those that fought and died to give us our freedom, and those who have constantly fought to maintain it. we live in a great country, and though we don’t get a whole lot of respect in the international scheme of things… it doesn’t matter. we’ve come this far…

wrapping up the day

as i sit here waiting for the evening to draw to a close, i’d like to take moment and reflect on my life. sometimes we take things for granted. i know i’m guilty of that. but i wanted to take the time to say: my life is pretty damn good. i have a wonderful girlfriend that loves me. i have a great family that loves me. i get along with my brother/roommate. it’s pretty nice. so.. to everyone in my life… whether they read this or not… thank you. thank you for being in my life. thank you for brightening my life.

luck. pure luck.

i don’t think my brother realizes just how lucky he is sometimes. being the immature dumbass that he can tend to be, he doesn’t think with his head a lot. i’m not going to pretend like i’m perfect by any means. i’ve got my faults. hell, i just bought alcohol tonight that i’m sure him and his friends will probably help themselves to. anyways, his friends were being loud. and i don’t mean a loud “loud”, i mean a LOUD loud. they were coming in and out of the house, and lo and behold … someone called the cops. now, before you freak out, it was an off-duty richmond county officer. but still. my brother is nineteen. a dumbass to boot. and the cops were knocking at the door because of complaints from neighbors. lucky for my brother, the guys was off-duty. otherwise, i’d be escorting him to to the police station. now, my brother didn’t learn from this. after he managed to get the cop to go away, he ended up on the phone with some friends and asked them to come over. not only were my brother and his friends being too loud… he wanted more to join the fray. god, i swear my brother needs some common sense sometimes. anyway, i got pissed at my brother after he “warned” me that others were coming over. i told him: “haven’t you learned anything from this you dumb punk? a cop came to our door because you were being too loud. you’re lucky he was off-duty, otherwise you’d be locked up right now for being drunk underage.” he shrugged at me. i told him that he wouldn’t be so lucky the next time. he won’t be.

where the fock have you been?

kay, so i left without saying g’bye to you folks. my bad. i just spent the weekend in virginia with my girlfriend kim. we were up there attending my friend heather’s wedding. (congrats heather and donald!!) the whole weekend went pretty well and i even dressed up … in a tux even! maybe i’ll have pics available soon. gotta get with kim aboot developing this roll of pics from the trip. anyway, i’s be back and i hope to update the site a lil’ bit over the course of the week. see ya next update!

where art thou?

it’s 12:21am. my girlfriend is still out of town and i really miss her a lot. i haven’t really been apart from her all that much, and i guess it’s not a feeling i really enjoy having. i feel kinda empty without her. i know, i know… it’s all so sappy… anyways, i’m having a hard time getting to sleep.

beautiful monday morning

you know, for having stayed up last til 3am, i feel alright. i’m a goofball, i know. why were you up til 3, you ask? well… easy, really. i wasn’t all that tired. i was up late trying to figure how to incorporate templates files into an html document that’s being hosted on a unix server running apache 1.3.6. ya see, i’ve got some projects going on like the phoenix and sga websites that I really need to update and i want to use server-side includes in the project to simplify the whole design of these projects. i dropped an email to the school webmaster to hopefully get includes turned on… so we’ll see.

sorry for the lack of updates this past weekend. i’ll try to make it up to ya!

i hate being busy

sorry for the lack of updates. i’ve been busy over the past couple of days. i was working on some final touches on bellranger.com. i did an initial concept that i grew to hate, so i took the time to “improve” the look. i’m notorious for that. anyways, here’s the old one [bellranger] (link removed. now nonexistant.) what do you think? think my new design is an improvement? or worse? why not let me know?

Bills, Bills, Bills

god, i hate bills. they suck ass. i hate how i see most of my check sucked away so i can pay bills. i work to pay bills. i work to pay taxes. i’m getting it from both ends now. it’s funny how someone can make x amount of money and the government will take a third of it from you. you earned it. the government didn’t help. it’s like a giant crackhead… “i need a little mo’ money. gimme a little mo’ money.”
