"Life exists at the present scale, (as opposed to say, atomic levels), because this is where similar sized matter was able to combine together close enough.
For example, at the atomic level, the distances between particles relative to their size are huge. Same thing at a planetary (and larger) scale. The distances between planets, stars, galaxies, etc. are all ridiculously huge. But at the size of a...."

"Wow, imagine the existance of our whole universe was the reaction that occurs when two..."

Album Covers Galore! [Jan. 20th, 2008|11:09 pm]
[noise |Burn Your Wishes - Burn Your Wishes]

Good evening everyone, here's a fun little meme I picked up:

The Rules:

1. The first article title on this page is the name of your band.
2. The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
3. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Pop open your imaging program, and create your album cover.

Mine: The Saints Girl Friday - Hardest Arguments To Refute

CoverCollapse )

While I'm on the topic of album covers, my band has been trying to come up with a cover for our upcoming EP release.

These are a few ideas I've come up with so far:

Finally got it. Took two hours, fortunately Ravi was there to help keep me distracted. Already contemplating what to get next, I was thinking something to go with the falcon, like a snake or something that the falcon can be attacking...who knows.

PS: colds suck

What a fucked up weekend....in a good way, if that makes any sense. I'm so burnt out and I still need to start my essay due tomorrow at midnight. The weather is so perfect out right now, I'm very tempted to fuck my essay and go do something outside.


Cheers to getting drunk, meeting new people, alternative guitar tunings, going up to every person downtown in search, finding cordless phones, guitar hero, climbing construction equipment, hamburgers, being stalked, drinking games, running down the road, and randomly meeting my sister who is supposed to be back in Toronto.

"Content Protection"?! fuck you, it's my computer, let me do what the fuck i want... [Feb. 3rd, 2007|11:44 pm]

[noise |Thrice - Kill Me Quickly]

A friend of mine is planning to buy a computer in the near future and I've been helping him decide what to get (since I'm such an uber computer geek). In the process I've read quite a bit up on Microsoft's newest addition to the Windows line, Vista, and I've learned some very troubling things.

Reason's Not To Upgrade To VistaCollapse )

Now, keep in mind, Vista may turn out to be an awesome OS, just be wary. Don't mind the angry title, sometimes I just can't stand the direction technology seems to be heading. Soon enough, we won't have any control over what our computers and other gadgets do, we'll just sit back and "enjoy" the ride..........fuck that.

Windows Media Player, TTC, and other things. [Jan. 30th, 2007|08:10 pm]

[noise |The Bled - We Are The Industry]

January 27th, my birthday, was fun. The Friday, my parents took me out to a nice dinner at Wildfire Steakhouse. The next night, a bunch of the guys got together at Ravi's house. True to the geeks that we are, we played some Wii before heading out to the new pub in our neighbourhood, called The Queen's Head. It was a fun evening, smaller than some previous birthdays, but still a great time. I ended up getting a new camera tripod (goodbye old and busted, hello new hotness), Tetris DS (don't laugh, Tetris is the shit, I love it), and a bunch of cold hard cash (some of which will be used to purchase a new distortion pedal). I'm now on a co-op term, working at Embarcadero Technologies as a Software Development Intern. I like the job; really laid-back, casual office, good pay, and difficult but fulfilling work. Plus, all the free softdrinks and juice I want!

Windows Media Player RantCollapse )

In other news, I think the TTC hates me. In the one month that I've been working downtown, I've had either the bus or streetcar I was on, go out of service, forcing me to either walk or wait for the next one, three times, two of which were on consecutive days. Damn you TTC, and get some more reliable vehicles!

A New Year... [Jan. 9th, 2007|09:06 pm]
[feeling |accomplishedaccomplished]
[noise |The Shins - Pink Bullets]

This New Year's Eve was probably one of (if not) the best one I've had. Geoff, Ravi, and I went up to Guelph, to the House of the Mongoose. We spent it with Gregor and Fagundes. Plans kept changing and we eventually ended up spending most of the night just hanging out at the house, with a visit to Michelle's and Emily's house party. While the night ended up being very similar to many other nights, I still had a great time. New Year's Eve is over-rated anyways.

The only resolution I have is to take at least one picture everyday. So far I've managed to keep to it, but some of the pictures are half-assed, "oh crap, it's almost midnight!", shots. Keep an eye on my website for this feature to appear.

2006 was a decent year, the latter half being better than the former. Some highlights include getting the band moving forward again, the awesome cottage trips in the summer, and living/adventuring with the coolest boys ever in the House of the Mongoose.

2007 started off with not so great (catching "the plague" [read: the worst stomach flu ever]) but the rest should be pretty good/interesting. I'm working until the end of April, then going to school over the summer, then working again for another four months. It'll be weird to be at school over the summer. The band is really moving forward with the purchase of a shit-load of new equipment (drum kit, guitar, bass, crazy effect pedals), a more accessible practice place, and with another Supernova gig coming up on the 20th. Hopefully we'll start to find some better [read: NOT Supernova] gigs soon. We are writing a lot of new material and I am super stoked about it. It's a different style and I like it a lot more.

Have a great 2007!

Does it feel good to drop $1000 on a new guitar? Yes. Yes it does. [Jan. 9th, 2007|09:04 pm]
I just bought myself a sweet brand new Schecter C-1 Elite. It's freakin sweet. It looks amazing, plays awesomely, and sounds wicked.

PicturesCollapse )

Here are some pictures of my Takamine G Series acoustic. It too, is a freakin sweet guitar.
