It's Friday, so it must be time for Aaron's pointless ramblings on subjects various and nefarious, topics wonderful and blunder-full, and generally funky and spunky.

Yeah, that last one wasn't so good, but the first two weren't much with the funny either. :(

Anyhow, it should be an uneventful weekend, so I'm looking forward to that. Seems like I've been running around too much, so the relaxation time should be good!

OK, House M.D., is getting a little close to glorifying the main characters drug abuse (if this is a spoiler to you, it's only because you've never watched the show, and darn it, it's your own fault! Geez!) I mean, it's recently getting to the point where I think there is never going to be any sort of real, LASTING negative light shed on it. House is getting away with his addiction constantly, and he weasels his way out of every problem that comes his way. I am certain that some might say it's a pretty accurate reflection on how it really is (and, yes, I do agree that the more prominent you are, the less likely an addiction is to ever have any negative consequences to you...I don't think I have to give examples), but I think it would be nice if there was some real punishment/penalty. Is it just me?

Note to you people (you know who you are): Please stop. Seriously, I can't deal with another season of stupidity paraded about on TV. Make this the last season of American Idol. Let it die. It's time. Don't you realize that once a quasi-parody movie has been made that stars Hugh Grant, it's time to cash in your chips and go home?!

Should there be a song of the day/week/however long the song lasts? I guess you don't know me too well if you have to ask! I'm leaning towards the lighter side today. I'm going to advocate a nice song that works well as background noise to soothe a person after a long day at the office. The kind of music you don't have to think about, or concentrate on, or deal with. Do you know the kind of music I'm talking about? (Hint: It's not jazz, and its certainly not anything that relates to what is sometimes referred to as a "jam-band") What's up with that anyways? It just goes on and on and on and on and on and on! Sometimes, it's hard to tell when one song ended and another started. And it never sounds the same the artists forget what they played before, so they just make up something similar. That's probably just me, but ti makes me nutty...nuttier!

That's right! It's classical music!! Let's go with "Nocturnes" by Claude Debussy. It's nice, although the second part isn't as suitable for my aformentioned purposes as the first and third parts. It meshes well, though! :)

Well, I hate to work, but I have to! See you laters!! :P

I have never watched A.I. nor will I, it ranks up there with survivor as TV shows the world would be better of without for me.

As for House has gotten so depressing for me, the plot lines and back-story don't seem to change. I'm actually kinda pissed because I used to love the show but now I don't watch at all and haven't since the 3rd episode with David Morse. Maybe when this story arc changes but for now I can do without

Lori, what did I just look at?! I recognized Irresponsible Captain Tylor, and that was it!

1-IX-2006 or TT4N!

Well, this will be the last time I blog here until 9/18 or so, when I will be back from vacation. Barring a European internet cafe, or some such nonsense. (How does one get the little accent on the e? Go »

25-IV-2008(ii) or A Look Inside My Head

I've been obsessing about something I said, and I want to blog about it. Here is what I am now thinking, along with added special what's going on inside my head commentary! All italics are internal monologues/voices in my head, and regular text is the other side of my thinking process. Go »

16-IX-2009 or Behind The Scenes (GE)

For those who are not aware, my first character in Gothic Earth is retiring. I believe that Scott is going to keep him around to use for his own undoubtedly nefarious purposes, but essentially, I am done with him. There were many reasons behind it, but there was just a single overriding reason above all others: I found myself unwilling to continue with him. Go »

12-I-2007 or Bad Weekend Ahead

What a sh!tty weekend I have to look forward to! Saturday, I have to go visit a friend/co-worker (she's on the bubble...) Go »

6-IX-2007 or Not again! :(

I really really really hate birthdays! Just a reminder that you've been around another year, and that your time is shorter by 365 days (or so). :( I'm cranky like that. Go »

22-XII-2008 or I am dumb.

Funny story (only it's not)! My wife was running in a 5K race for the inaugural Saint Petersburg Bowl (I love those corporate tie-ins!), Go »
