Oh my God!

So to start, the song playing is T. V. Carpio's cover of the Beatle's "I Want to Hold Your Hand" from Across the Universe.

So busy past few weeks. So I went to Michigan couple weeks ago to see my family, which was wonderful. My Family on my grandpa's side is this big tightly nit hispanic family that, when gathered, could populate the entire city of Parma, Missouri.
It was a pleasure seeing my Grandpa Leo. He's about 91 but he's just full of energy and youth. Fought in two wars and is thankful for everything in his life. I lurves him, lol.
I got some great photos on the way back which I've stuck on Flickr, however I'm going to postpone using flickr for a while because I'm running out of room on my account. So until I can upgrade to a Pro account I'm not going to upload more than five more pictures. Eitherway, great pictures.
I took the pictures with my newest gadget, an iPod Touch.
While trying to sync my iPod Classic, I my knee hooked the usb cable and slung my iPod at the tile floor of my Grandpa's basement mid-sync and upon holding it to my ear I deduced the harddrive was thoroughly frakked over.
So, faced with adversity, I did what any good hipster would do: I put on a plaid shirt and off to the nearest Apple Store I went where I bought a 32 Gigabyte iPod touch.
Of course, it's a fabulous product. Beautiful screen, great for handheld gaming (I really like N.O.V.A. and Fruit Ninja) and super battery life. I am glad I waited until this model before buying. It well worth the three bucks. (US$299)
Another thing I did with it while up there was I got some great video of some cousins singing and playing guitar. To be slipped into a youtube video at a later date.

So my partnership with a small hacker collective here in Missouri has ended as I am no longer needed for my unique experience with an experimental series of programs. While this may sound sad, because it was decent money, it's not so bad. I left them, because I'm not a programmer and the more complex the work got meant I would be writing more and more code. You see the code, we'll call it Monkye.Scrypt, was written from scratch by this genius in Ohio it's comparable to nothing else. This guy is messed up and enjoys making everything whimsical. Imagine Python on acid and then take that concept and stim it on steroids and you have the coding experience. Also, I'm leaving in about T- 4 Months.
You didn't know that.
Where to? Please wait.

As for cute little miss Blogger's Nightmare? Well, she and I broke up while I was away. Things moved a bit too fast and while we're great friend with a weird as all hell chemistry, it's just not meant to be. She had begun implying certain feelings of wanting break up and I got tired of trying to understand the cryptic text messages and pulled the trigger on the relationship.
Ironically, what would have been a nasty break up turned out to be good.
She's sweet, though. I chat on facebook with her about an hour ago.

So, raises the question. In a row, now, I've had five girlfriends over the past few years. Cheri, Eleshia, Caeleigh, Emma and we'll call her "Kitty". I wonder what would happen if I took my chances and kissed a frog next? Who hed turn out to be my personal Prince Charming with awesome thick hair and an abtastic stomach? (Yeah, I know I'm pushing it. Scratch that last bit.) Or would he turn out to be a jerk-face? Also abtastic, by the way.
I think it's best I leave that in the air and just see what happens.

Speaking of the Caeleigh (@GreenEyesLaugh/GreenEyesOfLaughter), here by dubbed Cookye this month, we have epic plans after the new year to meet up and spend a LOT of time together. In fact we are collaborating on a video project that is coming to together as we locate more hands to help and what not. Plus there is another thing that's going to happen, but I want to get all my facts straight before letting it out in the blogosphere. I will likely announce that in a video as well, so that blog will be a double feature.

On a final note, a musical note in C sharp minor, I discovered another band that's going into my list of favourites this year and that is the xx. I heard them perform on the Jimmy Kimmel show while I was in Michigan and I had to buy their debut and only Album called "XX."
it's absolutely fabulous. It's mellow, dark and it's got some very eerie vocals to it. It actually reminded me a bit of the Twilight Saga soundtracks, which I think are the best thing to come from the series at all.
The female vocalist is Romy Madley Croft on the guitar and the male vocalist is Oliver Sim on the bass-guitar. Instead of a drummer on a kit, they have Jamie Smith on a mixer, sample, kit pad, midi controller and all that fun stuff.
Really great esthetic, check them out.

Anyway, I'll check back in sooner next time. Thanks for reading. Goodnight.
