Quarter Life Crisis
Army of Anyone
Just got wind of some interesting music news. Apparently Richard Patrick, lead vocalist for Filter
, is taking a break from his brainchild to join forces with Dean and Robert DeLeo formerly of Stone Temple Pilots
to form a new band called Army of Anyone
. Sounds intriguing seeing as how I am a huge fan of both bands. Although Filter was in the midst of tracking a new record, Richard still decided to step away from the recording sessions to concentrate on the his project, quoted as saying "This band (Army of Anyone) is my priority right now". Can we say newest "supergroup"? Read the article on MTV.com here

Taking a cue from the L-Train
, I went back and checked to see when my first post was as well. Looks like I missed my Blogiversary by almost a month. My first post
was back on September 24, 2003. So this here blog is about two years and one month old. Here's to a promise of more posting in the coming year!
Mighty Pujols At The Bat
Mighty Pujols At The Bat
The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Redbird nine that day
The score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play.
With the season on the line, the manager makes the call
Lidge trots out from the pen, and confidently takes the ball.
His fastball clocks at a hundred, his slider can't be hit
And Redbird fans do cry and swoon, as his warm ups hit the mitt.
The Stroville faithful dance and scream, as one they raise their cheer
Their closer need but three outs, for this to be their year.
The first two batters took their cuts, but Lidge just mowed them down
And the building rocked and strangers kissed, in anticipation of the crown.
But one more out was needed, and the top of the order now due
As Eckstein walked up to bat, the fevered pitch just grew and grew.
Lidge pounded Eckstein with two strikes, he had his good control.
Then out of nowhere something happened; Ecky swung and found a hole.
He took second without a play; all that mattered was at the dish
"One more out" the fans cried out, only this their prayer and wish.
Jimmy Edmonds now dug in deep, his jaw was clinched and tight
And an edge crept into the stands; for they sensed they had a fight.
But Lidge glared in and took the sign, his stuff was such a lock
His pitches flew till the count went full; Jimmy finally coaxed a walk.
Eighty thousand eyes looked on deck, and there saw a famous number
For Pujols, mighty Pujols, stood there ready with his lumber.
He strode easily to the plate, and clenched his mighty fist
The first pitch flew and broke away; Mighty Pujols swung and missed.
And now Lidge gets the sign and now he winds and lets it go
Oh how the cheers are shattered, by the force of Pujols blow.
The silence becomes deafening, the air is all let out
For there is no joy in Stroville, the Mighty Pujols hit it out!

I accidentally got a Coke Zero
recently out of a vending machine. After a few tastes I think I figured out the real reason they call it Coke "Zero". Cause once you taste one, there's Zero chance you'll ever buy another.
The Gullibility Factor Test
Your Gullibility Factor score is 82.
(Out of a range of 0 - 100, where 0 = mind slave, and 100 = free thinker.)
Welcome to the top 5%. You're a true free thinker and a person who is well informed about the reality in which you live. Although you may have been easily manipulated earlier in life, you eventually gained lucidity and developed a healthy sense of skepticism that you now automatically apply to your observations and experiences. You are endlessly curious about human behavior and the nature of the universe, and you have one or more lifestyle habits that most people would consider odd or unusual. You are not only of very high intelligence, you are also extremely creative in one or more areas (music, art, software development, inventing, etc.)
If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, completed the combat training, and started fighting (and beating) agents from day one.
Your architects: You have cast off reality distortions taught to you by your parents, schooling, corporate advertising and government propaganda. You create your own beliefs based on what serves you best, without much regard for what the rest of the crowd is doing. You are guided by your own internal code of ethics (which may or may not agree with politically-correct ethical codes) rather than any pre-set system of ethics (such as from any one religion).
I'm a Badass Samurai
You are a Samurai.
You are full of honour and value respect. You
are not really the stereotypical hero, but you
do fight for good. Just in your own way. For
you, it is most certainly okay to kill an evil
person, if it is for justice and peace. You
also don't belive in mourning all the time and
think that once you've hit a bad stage in life
you just have to get up again. It's pointless
to concentrate on emotional pain and better to
just get on with everything. You also are a
down to earth type of person and think before
you act. Impulsive people may annoy you
"Always do the right thing.
This will gratify some people and astonish the
rest" -Mark TwainFacial expression:
