so i was assaulted by my coworkers the other day. it seems they had an epiphany about who i remind them of.... this guy..... (its just the hair)



but really i think im closer to this:



you excite me to the point of humiliation... would you care to strike me?

Remember making mixtapes for your crushes? Me neither. But I had a ton of mixed tapes that I would play, pause, play, pause and write down the words of songs. Probably why I don't know most lyrics well. For instance: "Oh Charles, your voice is scary!" If you know that song from my bad lyrics, that's awesome.

I broke my record player years ago, so sad. I miss the sounds.
hmmm dont recognize those lyrics


haha the only mixtape i ever made a crush was just a bunch of spoken word stuff. 20 minutes of me looping a guy saying "i wish you were dead" (oddly enough, she actually is dead now) and 70 more minutes of some other psychobabble. I've made plenty of "legit" mixtapes beatmixed to perfection for friends though. It's almost too easy now with computers. the only talent one needs now is an ear for arrangement and flow, and the software does the rest basically. kinda cheating.... when i had to do it all manually on turn tables and pitch controlled cd decks. dont get me wrong, my turntables and crap are collecting dust in the closet and ive embraced the new era.



on the plants, the only ones ive converted back over are kompakt and repens x arcuata.

Bwahahahahahaha! Were your coworkers still standing after showing you that? You remind me more of this guy with long hair:



Voices Carry. Ha! It's a surprise I'm even allowed to listen to songs.

That is a little ironic, but maybe not? Everyone eventually dies, just some sooner than others. Always sad when they are so young, though (and sorry she died). Psycobabble. That sounds like it could be a band name.

As far as thinking the software/computers makes it too easy - think about one thing. There are people out there (I'm so like this) that can't tell a harmony from a melody or a C chord from a G. I think the hardest part is having "an ear" for music. I severely lack that.


There is one plant I just thought of that I am having a really hard time converting back over and its a crypt. It's been literally three months and I just now saw one leaf coming in. Purpea or something like that is it's name.

Ha! I did say that didn't I? That is too funny that you remembered that. (But he is totally hawt.)

Ah, I'm the same way. It wasn't until recently that crypts actually started growing at all for me. Still can't grow hygro. Too lazy to fertilize as much as they need.

I hope you got overtime at least!

actually we are turning it into heidi's new crib haha... i would love to use it as a time out zone, if it was sound and shatter proof.

i havent decided if im going to re-dirt it when i set it back up.. i kinda like the idea of stump/anubias scape with geophagus species. but ive also been liking rainbows recently so who knows.


oh and bob, we would totally chill if you lived close, but i doubt your parents would like you hanging around a 35 year old anti-capitalist.

haha! heidi is the youngest? ponce you set it back up, you can still use it as a timeout zone. and since his head will be under water, it wont be as loud ahhh, parenting at its finest.

wasnt already basically a stump with anubias? lol i am beginning to like rainbows too actually, but i think bosemani are a little cliche. another rainbowfish tahts similar to a bosemani would be cool though


hahah yeah.. they would LOVE that
