Ignore this, everyone. It just occurred to me that I've never specifically mentioned that my journal is

Friends Only.

Comments are welcome. But this is most likely the last public entry to be made in this LJ. And, if I had my druthers, it'd be the only public entry, too.

iPod Touch

The iPod Touch continues to amaze me as a pocket computer. Considering that I'm making this post from a native app on the device and all.

And now, House.

I can't wait for this Friday. The Firefly movie, Serenity, opens, and I've decided I'm going to foresake KMFDM to go check this out. It was a fantastic series, and I'm amazed at the community that's risen out of a single season of television. Both amongst the fans and the show's makers and cast.

For evidence of how awesome this show is, I present the following:

Here's Nathan Fillon, who played Captain Malcolm Reynolds on the show, at GenCon last year. Apparently he decided to swing by out of the blue and join some guy's Firefly adaptation for GURPS. In this photo, Nathan (who'd never roleplayed before) is showing off his dicerolling skills while he assists by playing an NPC of the character River from the show.Collapse )

Argh. Somehow, I managed to screw up the network settings on Solaris, so that it connects to the wireless network, sends information, but receives 0. Can't use the web, in other words.

Aaaaaand connecting to my desktop through a direct Ethernet cable connection is, apparently, harder than it seems. Shit. Going to have to hold off on transferring my music and movies, then. Damn.

Now, back to work.

Random lyrics of the day:

i'm back at my cliff
still throwing things off
i listen to the sounds they make
on their way down
i follow with my eyes 'til they crash
imagine what my body would sound like
slamming against those rocks

and when it lands
will my eyes
be closed or open?

i'll go through all this
before you wake up
so i can feel happier
to be safe up here with you

Woe, Babylon.

"The king's warriors amassed themselves, entered the city.
The arrow whirred, the dagger was drawn.
You set up the weapons of the protectors of Anu and Dagan.
You let their blood flow over like rain water into the market place.
You opened their "veins" and let the flood [blood] flow out.
The Lord, the Prince Marduk saw it and said "Woe!" He took it to heart.
An insoluble curse was on his lips.
He made an oath: he will not drink the water of the river.
He sees their blood: he enters not into Esagil.

Woe Babylon! which like a date palm I have made to carry abundant yield: the wind withered it.
Woe Babylon! which like a fir cone ... have made to be filled with ... pollen and the fullness of which I did not enjoy.
Woe Babylon! which like a splendid garden I planted, and whose fruitI did not eat.
Woe Babylon! which like a seal of elmesu stone I had laid around the neck of Anu.
Woe Babylon! which like the board of fate I took in hand and left to no one.
Woe Babylon! which...

May the ferry leave port and may ... cross over on foot.
May the well be 60 meters deep and no man shall save his life.
In the surge of the broad sea, may they bring up the fisher boat to 100 "nautical miles" with the rudder.
The eternal city Sippar, over whose silhouette the Lord of Countries did not allow the flood to come:
Against the will of Shamash you destroyed their walls, pulled down their outer wall.
As for Uruk, the seat of Anu and Ishtar, the city of prostitutes, whores, and strumpets,
To whom Ishtar steals away the man whom she had placed into their hands:
Sutean men and women throw torches (in).
They attack Inanna, the impotents and effeminates,
Whom Ishtar changed from men into effeminates in order to teach people the fear of the gods,
The dagger, blade, knife, and flint bearers,
Who act in order to lift the spirits of Ishtar.
You set up a cruel, unbearable governor over her.
He saddened her and neglected her rituals.
Ishtar became angry and enraged about Uruk.
She mobilized the enemy and he swept it away like cereal before water..."

For twenty-five years of my life, I believed that nothing bad could happen on All Saint's Day. That belief was proven wrong about three years ago.

I wish that the universe would stop proving me wrong. I get the fucking message already.
