Shub Diwali, Eid Mubarak, and enjoy your Parang! And dat have to be de reason that Trinidad and Tobago should be a shining example of how to do it right! But is den I have to stop an scratch mih head and pull de likkel hair on mih chin, because we have to stop de madness before we lose de only tings we have dat setting we apart from de res of de world. Is not enough to keep saying dat we is a melting pot we have to accept it we self. - Tantie from Trinidiary

I will be eating lots of delicacies from my Hinbdu neighbours today and tonight, so coherent thought will be far away, since the blood will be going to my belly to help me digest all this curry.

Eid is Tuesday, by the way.

For now, the private job from hell is over and I have a four day weekend. I intend to sleep and rest up.

Later, gators.

FOR Americans: Chicago's year in baseball?  We will see.

No earthquake so far. Today is a good day.
richjob: (Default)
Hectic week.

Lot of stress, work not done :P

Oh yeah.

A 6.0 quake on Friday morning at 9 a.m. and a 5.5 aftershock just after 2 p.m. Maybe off Sucre, Venezuela, but Trinidad is the closest populated land in those parts.

Not a fun Friday.

It is Saturday and I am tired.

And when the hourglass has run out, the hourglass of temporality, when the noise of secular life has grown silent and its restless or ineffectual activism has come to an end, when everything around you is still, as it is in eternity, then eternity asks you and every individual in these millions and millions about only one thing: whether you have lived in despair or not.

-- Soren Kierkegaard,
"The Sickness Unto Death"

I think the quotes are one of the many things that keep me coming back to SMAC.

And no, shit week continues here.

Geek humour.  [ profile] popfiend  and some others might get it.


PC HD gave me a bunch of out of space weirdass messages on Thursday so the weekend project will be moving all my stuff to a new HD. Especially since my HD is a Maxtor of the crappy die in a year variety. (yes, there was a bad batch of Maxtors. Seems as if this is one of those.)

Which means reinstalling my OS.  Sigh.  Will start that longish process this evening.  Will also upgrade my videocard while I am at it.  Lemme play with ATI on Linux, since someone has to.

(and yes, I am one of the weird minority who uses Linux as his only desktop OS at home)  I don't have a mac and I can't afford the time it takes to keep a Windows installation relatively clean.

Lost access to a BUCKETFUL of my mail (it is still there, just have to reimport it...)

Bitching at ABC follows, so LJ cut. Those who get angry at the rightwing might want to avoid, to avoid increased blood pressure. )

ABC sucks donkey balls.  Watch anything other than that rightwing distortion of fact masquerading as a 9/11 story.

Lemme quote (from a message thread at Steve's News Blog )

hmmm, let's see...

Covertly funded to the tune of 40 million dollars by a recently discovered far right-wing operation – operating in Hollywood (allegedly for cover)

Secretly sent advanced copies to Rush Limbaugh and other far right-wing operatives who just so happen to stridently advance the exact same inaccurate views as portrayed in the film.

Denied the parties actually depicted in film advanced copies of the film, including the former President of the United States.

Condemned as, defamatory, slanderous, improvised, contrived, and grossly inaccurate by most, if not all experts involved in the actual supervision of the production, political pundits on both sides of the aisle - not to mention the former government officials who were actually depicted in the film and even actors themselves.

Condemned by all of one of the Commissioners of the 9/11 Commission itself, the purported and advertised basis of the legitimacy film. (the one exception, Tom Kean gave a changing opinion of his views of the film –and did not openly deny the inaccuracies, but instead pointed out that Bill Clinton, the primary target of the slanderous inaccuracies was currently campaigning for the opponent of his son in an upcoming New Jersey mid-term Congressional election.)

Several FBI experts terminated their employment on the project either immediately after reading the grossly inaccurate script – or shortly after they were told their recommendations for major script changes in order to correct the gross inaccuracies were not going to occur.

Planned to be aired on the anniversary of the event itself, September 11th, a date with serious emotional ties to the vast majority of the people of the United States of America, when thousands of innocent (Democratic, Republican, Independent and Apolitical) men, women and children were brutally murdered in one of the most serious and traumatizing events in American history.

Planned to be aired on Public Airways a month before a major mid-term Congressional Election – and directly misrepresenting serious issues currently being discussed in the political discourse pertaining to such elections.

Free copies planned to be distributed en masse to our Educational System, particularly at the High School Level, where political orientation is still at an impressionable stage.

Emails disclosed from officials involved in the project to far right-wing pundits stating that the (implied deliberate) slanderous inaccuracies were still “in tact” and all was still going as planned.

An actual “news” article on ABC NEWS labeling all who expressed their disagreement, distress or anger with the gross inaccuracies in, and controversial origins of the film as “Clintonistas”, a slang term also frequently used by the aforementioned far right-wing political pundits.

Repeated fraudulent misrepresentations and advertisements of the film as being based on the 9/11 commission - even AFTER the 9/11 Commission itself had publicly condemned the film as a grossly inaccurate representation of their bi-partisan findings.

....did I miss anything?

So watch something else.

DVDs are good.  Any non-ABC network is even better.  If you simoly MUST watch ABC, watch football.

Yeah.  Off to somewhere that is cool and that has broadband, so I can download big downloads.  Hopefully.

Why does money not motivate me like other people?

Somethnig wrong with me?

(and yes, I know that I'm not actually in the best place emotionally right now, and trying to figure out about fifty things all at once... )

I like following the occasional popfiend link, though.

I'm just blah, and it's ridiculously hot.

Still raining.

Being bored, I have filtered my mailbox.

Shit, there is a LOT of unanswered mail here. If you guys get LJ replies from me from a long time ago, it's because I'm now seeing the automated notifications that LJ sends out.

Time to gradually be more social.

Um... if someone female sends you kitsume porn, what should you do?
richjob: (Default)
because I'm in a kind of avoiding mood today. So I meme. Plus it's rainy.

A simple meme of two-two-one-one.

If you choose to reply,

Please list two movies you think I should see and why you thought of me for these movies?

Please list two books you think I should read and why you thought of me for these books?

Please list one TV show you think I should see and why you thought of me for this show?

One website you think that you should see

I'll start by doing one as if I was replying to this quiz to someone on my FList who I will not name.


The movies?

V for Vendetta. That movie resonates with me, and I think that you would appreciate it for the modern classic it is.

Three Kings. Accurate depiction of modern war, and a great acting job by the three principal actors. One of the first "I will not act in crap" movies by George Clooney, before his recent pledge to not act in crap.

The Books?

"Jingo" by Terry Pratchett. Written for another time, but almost prophetic. Even though it's comic gold, and does include a great visual of Nobbs in a dress. (This could have easily been "Thud", if only for the backhand that Pratchett gives the Dan Brown genre of books)

I'll go with "Among the Believers" by Naipaul for my second book. naipaul no longer writes comic books, but this one is pretty meaty reading.

TV show?


The Life and Times of Juniper Lee? Pretty decent for a Cartoon Network cartoon. Would have preferred Samurai Jack, but ah, well.

That is the draft example. :P

Anybody wanna give me some recommendations?

back hurts, and it's one of those random twinges that you get when you do something that you do every day athousand times without a problem.  This time, instant back muscle pain.


Thought about blowing off work, but went.   That sucked. 

Still dunno if to write a nasty letter to Prestige Holdings, because I don't know if it would make a difference other than me blowing off steam.

Terrorism sucks ass massively, but I can understand the type of frustration that would cause people to  see it as a legitimate and rational means of protest.  I don't condone it, but I understand.

People will travel naked before all of this is over.  I see a tipping point being reached in transport - there must be an alternative to large passenger planes.  I eagerly await my teleportation pad.

My flist kicks much ass.
richjob: (What de fork?)
Actually, it's Prestige Holdings that sux.
Arse.   Bitching ahead, so everything else is behind an LJ cut.  And there's a pic of me too.  Incentive!
Pic behind the cut )

Prestige Holdings runs the local Pizza Huts.  Very unfriendly to groups that want to use their facilities.

Apparently, for reasons known only to them, they don't want groups of folk unless they spend for the party room.  Which would be TT $450 PLUS a "service charge" of TT $ 75. Even if they aren't in the party room.

Yeah.  That is about US $90-$91.

This isn't the first group they've pulled this shit on.   A couple of the local social networking sites have had problems with them too.  Yes, the same branch.

Thing is, it's probably a cynical ploy to get more money on a Wednesday, since there aren't exactly large crowds at the "resturant" right now.

Fuck, the Chinese resturant in Tunapuna gives you far better service, the food is better and the place is cheaper.

Needless to say, we are looking for a new meeting spot.

Short disconnected bits, not particularly coherent. May refer to LJs read today, but not maliciously.

Hungry and headachey.

These Dave Chapelle episodes they are showing now should have stayed lost.

OTOH, Reno 911 is cool.

I am getting scarily addicted to Disney Channel programming - not good.
And I'm thinking that High School Musical was not as evil as the Disney name would indicate. The young''uns need their Grease equivalent.

All I saw the only time I watched the meerkat show was enough hanging balls to remind me of the Fark squirrel.

It's Thief.

I wonder what mobile posting is like.

Damn Sahara dust - me wheezy. On the plus side, no cycloney.

I need to watch the anime with the robot with the city on its back.

ooh. Live SNL next week - probably a farewell for Tina Fey and the Dratch.

My dogs are cute , but I worry about their diet. They like mangoes.

Ouch headachey. Bleah.

Work tomorrow. Must survive without brain glazing over.

Um. I worry about my sanity.

Each member of my Flist rocks for a set of different reasons. All of youse.

Yeah, even you.

I wait for the World Cup final today- 1 Billion viewers, bitches.

Truly, a SUPERb display of football, though the refs fucked up this year.

And the boys got knocked out in the first round.

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now.  (Bloody distance.) × I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses. I love to play video games. × I've tried marijuana.
I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes.  (When I'm frustrated.) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on... )
