    2 am, free smokes, feces, self-conflict.

    Discussion started by 26SidedCube - Apr 26, 2004

    Hey guys, 26 signing in for one of my pre-evacuation
    posts. Right now there's a few things on my mind:

    _1. I have a tendency to move into areas, or
    even situations for that matter, and subciously
    set myself up for things to my advantage.
    Example? I am smoking free cigarettes right
    now. Why? Well, a few months ago a random
    old man started talking to me out of what I'm
    going to assume was lonliness. I befriend 'Rudy'
    and talk to him at random hours when he's out
    being drunk and 70 and I'm coming back from
    painting. Turns out he's friends with all the local
    store owners in the area and now they all realize
    I'm a down-to-earth, respectful guy.
    I now have free smokes.

    _2. Wanda Sykes? Am I missing something?

    _3. Today I was coming back from about an
    hour uptown to find that a few of the trains
    from here to there are being worked on.
    This means plenty of transferrs and trouble
    for me. Finally after my 45 minute trip turns
    into near two hours and I'm one transfer away
    from home sitting on the R with my foot up
    on the bar staring out the window trying to
    make sense of the tunnel paint whizzing by
    (saw some Revs and Sane, surpise) and this
    little eccentic man decides to walk where my
    leg is.

    This is no problem. I move my leg so he can
    get by and make sure I'm not imposing on
    his sitting (even though he sits directly next
    to me while there is about 20 open seats in
    this particular car). He then tells me to take
    down my leg because he is 75 and he's trying
    to teach my generation something. Not polite,
    very rude and I was having a long, shitty day.
    There's no 'so then I told him I'm tough' to
    this story, I stared forward blankly and stated
    that I was having a long day and to not talk,
    I also let him know I respect him but I'm not
    in the mood for it. This brings me to think a
    couple things... this thread isn't going anywhere
    but I felt like spilling out my day's theme:

    ___A. I like living in a metropolis for the sake
    people like this old man do not talk to me.
    In a small town people feel it's their business
    to interact with you... where as here, everyone
    is a faceless, lifeless sim to me. I only have
    to not run into them and they won't try to
    interact with me unless there is some unspoken
    vibe. Sort of the contrary to my first point.

    ___B. Why do some people feel they have a place
    letting you know what you're doing bothers
    them? This is something that has somehow
    ALWAYS escaped me. Unless I am being
    directly offended/feel someone is greatly
    stepping out of line rarely will I even give
    them the head's up.. it's not going to stick
    so why waste the breathe? If anything what
    you're doing is counter-productive. I realize
    this underminds what I'm saying, but today
    I did feel old was out of line.. and so did the
    other 3 people he harassed after I turned
    him away...

    Yeah, that looks a lot longer than it really is.
    Now I'm off to potty. Anyone else have a take
    on any of these things/ feel like calling me
    an asshole? Go for it. Now I hit submit and
    waste server space.

    I don't know... I could maybe find her sort of
    cute in a weird way, but that's all I see.

    Sort of like how Colin Quin fumbles with speech
    but has the ideas behind what he's saying, well
    I see her as the polar opposite. Lacks in having
    anything worthwhile to say but can talk until
    she's dark-purple in the face.

    Jokes aren't supposed to end in 'or some shit, ya know?'.

    I'm bitter when it comes to marginally-talented comedians.

    I think today was a FINE example of this!

    So a couple of years ago in my jazz class a college kid is called in to do some seminars with some of the students. He was a drummer so he worked on the rythim section (im the drummer) and we hit it off with jokes and banter about other drummers n sutch..well every time he came to do clinics it was a grand time cuz we just hung out and fucked around with free jazz n sutch.. so its NOW and we kept in touch, he just graduated from college and lives with these other musiciaans in the same town, he calls me up and says hes having a BBQ and i should come by..i grab some chips and head out. When Im there the place is packed with girls and other musicians from the college, so im fairly stoked at this get together.. im let in handed a beer and introduced to manny a people i have seen perform in town but never knew..so after sutffing our faces with burgers and beer, one of the roomies pulls out a guitar and some other dude yoinks out this crazy analog keybord with allsorts of diddlys and they state "its jam time"..I hop on the drums and we start going at it. others join in with bongos and basses and guitars...people are digging it..im drunk..its sweet. We jam for a good 3 hours till about 11:30 pm (they have a LUCKY living situation, big house, no one cares if there is music pumping till midnight) so after the jam everyone was stoked on what we had just created..so we exchange numbers for future musical projects, I think I have a new band to start with some of the best musicians in our town!...anyway everyone chills out..the party dissipates and its about time to head home, i snag a few beers for home..get some more numbers from dudes and i head out to home...

    now im here, drinking beer and thinking about the future of my musical carere.


    all is good!

    Bingo!

    Almost the same thing happened to me the
    other nite while I was drunk and wandering
    through the transit system. Bumped into some
    cat selling CDs, was geeked on what he had
    to saw, bullshitted about music we're making,
    recent releases, recording time, yadda yadda,
    exchanged info.. now I potentially have another
    kid to get down on making some music, having
    fun and on top of all that.. he knows more
    people than I do which is always a plus.

    Yay for being charismatic to the right types of people.

    Alright, maybe I'm not giving her much of a
    chance cause I've never experianced how she
    can carry a crowd. I get my impression comparing
    her to people like Hicks, Carlin and Leary...

    I guess those are high standards.

    I have a new job, it's full time and i'm still having trouble adjusting to less sleep.

    Fuck a boss who expects you to jump around and yell and be cheerful at 7.30 in the morning.
