from iooi :
when's yours?
from iooi :
ha ha, no it's not my birthday again until next june but thanks anyway. i was just randomly announcing how old i was.
from jcruelty :
I like the new design. The only movies I've seen in a theatre this year are: 1. Half-Nelson 2. Snakes on a Plane 3. Idlewild. Half-Nelson is definitely the best. My friend's friend directed it!
from iooi :
hey! you're going to move? are you still at the art school? i've been busking a lot and i'm in a fun pirate band called "the creaking planks" -- arrrrrrr!
from iooi :
hey, long time no talk. how's chewie? i'm going to get one too i think.
from n-poledancer :
Yup I hear you. I started about a gazillion other blogs but I always end up here again. Andrew doesnt answer my emails either. I think he only responds to paying members :(
from n-poledancer :
Wow habbitus! Welcome back.
from iooi :
why what's happening on monday? do i get a password? aischmidt@yahoo.com
from johnnieutah :
i see you've gone all passworded. something to hide?
from kittybukkake :
Hi pally boy. I'm in NYC next wkend for marathon and following wkend for drinkathon. Boston in between. Grumble. How you doing?
from blankwave :
i definitely go through those periods.
from shamsi9 :
why?
from shamsi9 :
you delight me. and i don't care who knows.
from shamsi9 :
shit i didn't read that til just now i worked all that weekend though for the sweet sweet time and a half
from shamsi9 :
you delight me. so nice to see you on the train that time...
from connie-cobb :
Maybe you're so mysterious... where did you come from?
from catbus :
Mmmm...maya deren.
from connie-cobb :
Hey - saw you on nycbloggers.com. Just thought I'd stop by & let you know I'm reading... they incorrectly linked me on the page under "How Does She Do It?" on the N stop. I'm actually at where I'm leaving this note for you from. ;)
from banefulvenus :
Ohhhhhhhh-lah! :)
from johnnieutah :
i'm secretly in love with the yahoo! mail woman, too. my other unrequited crushes include the thursday night bartender at the lounge, my ups guy, keanu reeves, britney spears, and every waitress at diner.
from blankwave :
hey, just found your diary and started reading. i like!
from theshortbus :
Ooh, i was going to watch the Men With Breasts thing too! Unfortunately, I was made to turn it off by my mother.
from johnnieutah :
sals owns the website at www.weaponsite.com and i think its a little stale right now. we have lots of new stuff tho, hopefully she'll update more once we are on the road.
from johnnieutah :
can't speak for anyone else, but its really losing a halfpint of blood to the tune of uterine cramps, lower back pain, and bloating that makes me cranky. but who's counting?
from johnnieutah :
that roxy music album practically saved my soul.
from justcircles :
naw, Habbit, it's a dumping of hormones into our system once a month, actually. Stuff that's supposed to grow babies that instead gets pumped into our own system and not even WE understand our moods, often!!
from catbus :
Praise Seitan!
from catbus :
Couldn't leave this on your myspace comments because I'm not registered there -- but I find it amusing that I checked your myspace after a long pause, only to find out that you're doing the artist way thing too. I had the same newagey hesitancy but have recently (just a week ago) started in again (back to Chapter/square 1). Hmmm, weird. I'm also not exactly sure why I keep interrupting you with random silly observations, me toos, and the rare IM assault.
from shamsi9 :
i'm back in school and i spend all my time at afro. what's your aim name or are you just gone from there? email it to me if you want shamsiruhe@hotmail.com
from elvisload :
just call on me brother...
from cosmokane :
yes, i've heard a few things by jacek s. he has the *hardest* name to spell in the world (i bet he doesn't even get it right). but what i've heard has been pretty good. you can read more about the music academy at http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com. cheers!
from krugerpak007 :
Aaaah! Just when I found you, you are having a break. :-( Well, take care. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
My birthday was also Sunday! So happy birthday! Belated even so. I found you through the Effexor diaryring, so just wanted to say hi. It's nice that you enjoyed your date and feel you want to go out and meet people. ... Take care, have a good weekend. xoxo Kathy
from solarlab :
happy belated birthday. soon, we'll play. i promise.
from catbus :
Happy Belated Birthday!
from catbus :
You'll find Mr. Cohen's work within my music collection as well -- but as for being a primadonna/poseur, I did hear that he used to come into our local record store to make sure that they were properly stocking his releases (this was during the time he was um, residing as a monk in the local zen center/monastery).
from indie-anna :
aww, thanks. you're so nice. xo.
from catbus :
SUNN O)))!! So good 'n' heavy...
from scottwinters :
(It's gumphood) I liked the belt alot, and smelting is funny field to get into. So meidevil. I doubt that you actualy broke out the anvil, but self masonery isn't a bad habbit to pick up.
from gumphood :
did you make that belt?
from solarlab :
i would so love to have drinks with you. i get off work and usually head down to the village. would love to check out some places on avenue b/c between 9-12th street-ish. just walking around there makes me feel good. i have your number still.
from catbus :
I know, I know! Believe me, my ass would really like to be there, this weekend in particular. One of these daze I will, you hear? And it will be good.
from cosmokane :
ps. i haven't heard of khanate. but i will check them out if they are worth it. i don't think metal makes me angry. or, at least, that is too broad a statement to make. there are so many different kinds of metal. metal satisfies me on such a visceral, emotional, and mental level - or do i just seek refuge in chaos?
from cosmokane :
hmm, habbit, i don't think i've ever been accused of being "upbeat" :P and am i really that angry? feeling sick and dealing with my brother is a bad combination. but, actually, i think i'm in a pretty good state, generally. hope all is well.
from shamsi9 :
would you have any interest in writing a couple paragraphs for a zine?
from eyesonthesky :
thank you...
from purplebanana :
Bicycles! Yum. I'm getting one this summer, though not for long-distance type stuff. More for exploring and finding cool places stuff. I'm 25, a newly proclaimed writer, a part time job hunter, lesbian, blunt, and live in London. Hi again.
from purplebanana :
Goals and how to acheive them. Nice to see another diary talking about it. Good luck with the whole riding a motorcycle and not getting killed, then.
from shamsi9 :
i sent you this whole email and it came back to me. i guess you're not p underscore anything at yahoo.com anymore. yeah d is cool, i was at his house yesterday with my big brother putting harmonies on things. i think you would like my big brother. he's kind of an action jackson type as well and very into the technocracy.
from shamsi9 :
people who take eighty mile bike rides are not out of shape where i come from.
from solarlab :
[hahahaha]
from shamsi9 :
when you threatened to quit writing i think i said something like "noooooooooo!" i'm gonna check your notes tho to be sure
from theshortbus :
i don't think he has any issues, none pertaining to me at least. he's a 16 year old boy and likes to sniff female. i'm not really sure if that's normal, though.
from shamsi9 :
lots of music on your mind. i'm glad you're deejaying again. i know lots of people that i know well REALLY well.
from indie-anna :
aww, thank you. ;)
from shamsi9 :
dingos ate my baby i am reading "daughter of persia" and "in the land of dreamy dreams" which says "nigger" too often for my taste but i needed some fiction.
from shamsi9 :
congrats. that's a big deal.
from salmondriver :
ooh do you mean library school? which program?
from indie-anna :
ART PROJECT! YES! brilliant idea! but herein lies another problem: i don't want my DAD to see me NAKED! :O and some of these pictures... oh lord...
from shamsi9 :
huh
from shamsi9 :
why the juice fast? just to cleanse in general? i had a four hour roadtrip where the rhythm of the night played like seven times by the fifth time it was just eerie.
from shamsi9 :
it was a lot easier when we were younger. i don't know if i could do it the way they do it now. the long intervals between anything definitive happening would stress me out i think. but that's just more evidence that i need to grow up. the waiting game is a part of the dating game.
from catbus :
But Obi-wan, you were my only hope. Ah well, I understand -- I'm a bit short on the green myself. Perhaps you'll have time for a visit when yer out hyar.
from salmondriver :
fasts are fascinating -- looking forward to more updates. glad you're feeling good so far.
from solarlab :
hahaTOTALLY. and ima goin' to the kind of hell where i can't play with anybody. mean, where i can't play anybody. guilty as charged.
from indie-anna :
thank you so much. :) that would be grrreat. if i come, i'll probably be moving at the end of august/beginning of september. all depends on what fashiony jobs i can find there before then. xo.
from shamsi9 :
interesting and resonates vaguely with what i'm doing now musically.
from shamsi9 :
surfing movies are neat.
from shamsi9 :
did you see three movies in a day then?
from shamsi9 :
i am one of those people who doesn't know a lot about anything so i am very impressed with your cast knowledge of music. the purists who expect you to carry tons of vinyl around and don't even really listen seem annoying.
from shamsi9 :
you are such a good grownup! and you still have fun and are creative. you have good balance!
from solarlab :
if you are serious. email me. xxoo.
from shamsi9 :
i didn't even know you and the lady broke up cause i have been living under a rock
from catbus :
Dear Mr. Habbit, RE~TG! Ahh, doesn't it sound divine? http://www.mute.com/tg/retg.html 'bus
from shamsi9 :
it's freaking me out too. i hope they are just full of shit and trying to get bush re-elected and scare people. i really hate to think of urbanites as being in perpetual danger of terrorist attack.
from shamsi9 :
i miss my old cat mister gobo so bad. he was the goods.
from shamsi9 :
i dig the new layout. long time no talkie. glad you are deejaying.
from catbus :
Yes, I go thru Snickers phases. When I go whole-hog into the candy thing I tend to eat anything blue. Recently I figured out that some blue dyes make your poo bright green, like Play-doh.
from catbus :
I love Gang of Four. And the kids are all about TV on the Radio -- they're darn catchy.
from indie-anna :
i am in chicago - at the school of the art institute. in may, after seven looonnnnnnng years of undergrad, i will finally, praise god almighty, be finished. xo.
from catbus :
I like the Ken Ishii -- picked up his "Jelly Tones" many moons ago. Feel bettah soon!
from catbus :
yes, you are awesome. Thanks for the MP3 recommendations, I'll have to check it out. You asked about Biota, I haven't listened to 'em in years but used to regularly feature them on my undergrad radio show...
from salmondriver :
jeff golblum is so beautiful in that cramped corner of l.a., delivering his precious few words - i hate to be the asshole who corrects you, but it's my favorite line by a favorite actor in a favorite movie - it's just plain and simple "i forgot my mantra". maybe he doesn't want to be reminded. maybe he doesn't need to be. thank you for reminding me that i haven't seen that movie in at least 9 months which is far too long.
from solarlab :
got stuff to do in suburbia. will be in mid week. i will let you know for sure.
from shamsi9 :
am smack dap in the midst of the werky sanxx pops
from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :
someone forgot to come to my show *sniff*
from shamsi9 :
yay. slow cube times.
from shamsi9 :
you like your jobby job and that is radness. i'm reading do androids dream of electric sheep and i dreamt of them...it says in one astrology book that those with venus in aquarius love like robots (harsh).
from shamsi9 :
winter is my time. look sharp.
from novembre :
proooooost proost. as in roost. he was an odd guy. sickly and bedridden, spending pages of writing on an internal argument. very cerebral and gawky, which is why i like him. man, i have got to read my notes more often. ps. hi.
from shamsi9 :
i'm not tired of you.
from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :
you want "real tree" style camo, which they sell at walmart.
from shamsi9 :
you are ruling the school already.
from n-poledancer :

from shamsi9 :
yuo tho coo
from vyv-xx :
Thanks for the birthday note. I appreciate it. And even though huge trees were falling everywhere during the hurricane, none of them landed on my car. Lucky.
from novembre :
proooooooost
from shamsi9 :

from dust-settle :

from dust-settle :

from shamsi9 :
you are my old mac, inside, where it counts
from shamsi9 :

from shamsi9 :

from cosmokane :
that habbakuk article was just wonderful. - c
from shamsi9 :
i don't play checkers. i like isobel, the bjork song.
from shamsi9 :
chit chat in the weehours..never better. i will see the movie for i love both of those actors.
from peth :
what is this pulling of pork? it sounds so libidinous and/or perilous. little debbie!
from shamsi9 :
troo dat
from shamsi9 :
you are a nice lady
from peth :
oh, I'm guessing that the art I saw at First Friday was far more questionable than the art you saw in Chelsea. Just a hunch.
from justcircles :
my ill luck forced my journal into lockdown, but you may read with username: absence, password: thinair
from shamsi9 :
listening to future bible heroes. we play in jersey city on friday. uncle joe's pub. come out if you can and congrats on the new and steady gig and the raise.
from pro-keds :
congrats on the new job! my band is playing this friday at Siberia if you'd like to come by. 11pm
from n-poledancer :
I was totally joking, my funny bone is broken sorry.
from pro-keds :
habbit - what is your fotolog name? which meet-up did we meet-up? I like the music you listen to. I like that you know the divine Ms Arajane.
from n-poledancer :
Shmancy doesnt mean anything! Its the only word you could find that means NOTHING. I am so upset!
from arajane :
the world is a strange place. i was just leaving at note for my pal pro-keds and saw the note you left. i know chris through an entirely different friend of mine from seattle, and you met him at a fotolog meetup, which mean that i know you now through three different people!
from pro-keds :
well i'm glad you're here! writing is cooler than photography, in my opinion.
from peth :
haha, i know it wasnt' me. i'm not a dream girl.
from shamsi9 :
nice. i wish sometimes that i had not dropped out od every school so i could go back and show them sometime...you do it for both of us, though i have a feelin you were not one tenth the loser i was in school
from shamsi9 :
you are a better person than i am, and enneagrams don't lie.
from shamsi9 :
by being the architect of robot-dolphin, you have far exceeded all possible expectations. you do it for the kids, man.
from dust-settle :
thanx for stopping by, and i like your diary from what ive read so far, plan to do more when i get home (vacationing, stretching out like a lazy cat in the sun). take care.
from weeme :
You know I was kidding, right?! Right?!! I think the whole idea of diaryland reviews is hilarious. If you look at the people who are offering these reviews, they tend to be all like 15 year-old high school students with a pretty limited range of experience. And I wonder just who takes these reviews to heart and would actually stop reading a journal on that basis. It would really be interesting to do see some kind of demographic profile of the average d-lander. But the reviews are generally funny asall-get-out!
from weeme :
"The unlikely Leo"... it sounds like a best-seller along the lines of Bridget Jones' Diary or "How to be Good" or something...
from shamsi9 :
happy birthday. you rock bells, nationwide.
from weeme :
O... I'm so glad you discovered Meism... stumbling across her diary is like coming upon a treasure chest in a dark and dusty attic. And... I've just checked out the sites you posted in my notes and wow... I love your paintings, particularly "monojunk" with the bold knob of blue and "tower' which has a really ominous, gritty quality... like earthquake rumble... you kind of wonder what's buried below and whether there are any survivors underneath. They're both rendered in such confident, meaty strokes and have such a solid, masculine feel. Powerful. I also loved your line drawings (yardsale)... they remind me of art school... and the many, many hours spent drawing still life after still life. back then, I was aching to get away from all the line work and do some real shading for a change... but now when I look back thru my stuff, it's the line drawings I like best. Yours show great skill... you can really feel the weight of the items and they seem so grounded, you know... present. Really, really wonderful, Peter! Thank you for letting me take a peek!!!
from solarlab :
super.
from shamsi9 :
awesome. thank you so much. seriously. i almost look cool in that pic.
from cosmokane :
right...incidentially, deniro, in a recent interview, said that he's chilled out on the whole extreme character preparation thing; it seems now he just tries to relax and rely on his experience. also, getting into character can only go so far - deniro couldn't play the role of a young girl, for example. but your analogy is good. - c
from shamsi9 :
i'm gonna try coleslaw. i miss you and your IM-ing ways. see you tonight!!!!
from poppyfish :
Hey, this is some swanky layout. I feel kinda envious. ;)
from meism :
Thanks. I have added you 'cause I am enjoying your diary also.
from shamsi9 :
am working with the bassist from bad brains and it's really fun. i can send you an mp3 in like two weeks, remind me.
from cosmokane :
back in my wild college days, i actually had the prince logo "carved" into the back of my hair. before that, i also had the black flag, nin, and fishbone logos, too, but the prince logo was the, um, crowning moment. - the other cosmo

from shamsi9 :
you dreamer...blue people on the train and madlibs on the brain
from weeme :
way back when when I first started on d-land and stumbled upon pethipants and the whole wide soonerverse, I had paranoid delusions that the two of them operated all the journals on d-land that weren't the obvious brain-children (to use term loosely) of twelve year-old gigglyshitheads. Like an evil d-land syndicate. If a pair can consitute a syndicate. But I've since been illuminated.
from weeme :
man...you people and your sekrit selves. I have enough on my plate just trying to keep track of my one singular self!
from weeme :
is it ghostie? the sekrit one I mean.
from weeme :
o crap...cApital. sigh.
from weeme :
er...that's YOU with a big cpital Y at the front. ahem.
from weeme :
ou mean a site other than your d-land journal? Can I see?
from weeme :
...and worrying that my monitor is about to blow. I keep getting these weird little flickers that signalled the speedy demise of my last monitor. sigh.
from weeme :
ah yes...the biz. We're called Lamppost Seven and we've put in bids on two projects (graphic packages for television specials) and are in wait and see mode until then. In the meantime, I continue tweaking our identity and working (in a rather half-assed way, I've got to admit) on a new illustration portfolio, intending to approach children's book publishers...
from shamsi9 :
but are you feeling better? lalalala! you are the most high, the fall guy.
from shamsi9 :
what you need is a big strong hand to lift you to your higher ground...wait, no. what you need is black cumin. that;s supposed to help with allergies. that and chewing local honeycomb or beeswax
from shamsi9 :
pong!
from shamsi9 :
my friend doug used to say that 90% of everything is crap. i think this is a good given to start from when evaluating art or anything.
from peth :
Figs and glass!
from vyv-xx :
Yeah, dude... the last I heard of Yow he was dried out and getting into computer generated art... then he did that thing with the Melvins... but that's about it. I had a dream last night that I was a contortionist.
from shamsi9 :
this is just another example of how FAR over my head you can get. but congrats on the voice interview. that fucking rocks. please include a link to it when it comes out as i live upstate these days.

from beulahbondo :
dearest habbit, no tengo your msn name and I have to go to work now - blonk me lata - will be home btwn 6 and 9, then after 11 or so -
from beulahbondo :
Well, since you're vacationing, it's a good time to do a guest spot on my blog!
from cosmokane :
cool - i'm on aim at cashcause, generally on for a few hours during the day. i'm visiting the east coast for my brother's graduation and will hit up friends in nyc and boston. i might dj in boston, but i don't have plans for nyc; i know some of the direct drive people, but it's not there anymore! (r.i.p. baktun) an east coast dland geek convention ("NETMEET!") would be cool. jcruelty is going out east in may, i think, and yall should meet up, too :)
from cosmokane :
hey habbit. my new mix cd is out now. i'll post the tracklisting soon. hit me back if you want a copy. or i could hand-deliver it to you. i'm visiting ny in late may/early june. perhaps we could meet up? -c
from solarlab :
i'm sure you are dreaming of me. on my new coin. in my birthday suit. no no, with a really tight t-shirt of chairman mao. come have a drink with me tonight.
from pitty-sing :
dear mister habbit, I am wondering that too.
from solarlab :
um, mr secret lover, i'd appreciate if you'd update a little more often. my online time is so limited...i'm kidding, you know. xo
from catbus :
Oh drool, wafer cookies...I'm also a big blue candy fan, anything blue. My bro and I used to consume our entire Easter basket in a day. Nutrageous is amazing, anything with peanut butter and chocolate is easily consumable. (Insert Bow Wow Wow song here.)
from shamsi9 :
little dreaming times...you're like a computer whiz--i guess that's why you teach the puter games, no?
from shamsi9 :
sorry i can't be contrary...i like it too...and i like macs-so we disagree on that.

i thought that entry might degenerate into one of those american express ads "for everything else..."

i have not met anyone outside my little circle who knows of butoh. have you been to the cave in williamsburg? it's a neat space and i've seen a great piece there to the birthday party music...yay, for butoh!
from ginaromntica :
Thank you for listing me as a favorite! My url is a little different from what you put: it's ginaromntica.diaryland.com (too many letters to use the whole thing).
from beulahbondo :
Tu es loco! No necesitas trabajar de software quando nosotros ser tout le monde ensemble para el solamente tiempo! If you get my drift. Si, claro, puedas ser para mi webbie, pero por que quando tienes la mismo of your own? Hah? So mira, just come down for lunch, okay?
from n-poledancer :
Aw you're bad bad cuz now you know I have to write an answer and I swear that theres like a hundred pages I could go crazy on this with. Its all in my head now, will maybe get a few of those words down when Im done playing a business girl for the day. Good writing this week Monsignor Habitus. V. good.
from beulahbondo :
Cuz I AM a spinoff of kitty! I started posting to her diary last year as a guest columnist (though I've known her for much longer). Why you no come to Rampage?? Why???
from vyv-xx :
Oh, yeah yeah yeah. CHG's so fucking rad. I want his books, too. More random than Burroughs.

love the new feature. i learned a lot.

ur entry sent me scouring thru the closets looking for my Cramps t-shirt...Florentine Gardens '85...black with band pic...and Ivy wearin those gold lame (A brocaded fabric woven with metallic threads, often of gold or silver) pants...yikes...
from shamsi9 :
thanks for the encouragement! i changed the tagline that was overly negative...you're nice.
from shamsi9 :
i JUST found the notes button on yr journal-now you won't recieve all my messages in yr guestbook-YAY! did you listen to my stuff on mp3.com? look under shamsi ruhe. you might like broken in, then again, i'd love to hear your critique.
from cosmokane :
i agree with you re: city of god and spirited away. what did you see in "resident evil"? one of my friends really liked it, too. to be honest, the thing that excited me the most about it wasn't even the movie; it was the slipknot video in the dvd extras. and i don't even like slipknot :P
from shamsi9 :
can i post mp3s now that i have a gold membership?
from peth :
you must have a magical collection of music.
from btchelicious :
just curious, did you get the instructions I sent a while back about getting to Philly?
from solarlab :
i basically had the exact conversation of your entry just last night. my friend made a life-size simon with mini trampolines. grad school is a fantastic idea. you are certainly brilliant enough to endure it. i support you 100%. xo
from weeme :
and just so you know, I am geeky. But mostly just plain freakish in that classic Canadian-girl-with-dog-and-penchant-for-rootbeer kinda way.
from weeme :
err.... google. I'm sorry, but if you're going to continue corresponding with me, you're going to have to get used to my splaughter. splaughter is a term I've coined, a combination of "Spelling" and "slaughter"... quite self-explainatory. I'm much more literate than my slaughter splattered notage might indicate. really.
from weeme :
i just did a ggole search on Chico, and there's not much out there but it seems there are three other people in the world that remember Chio too. Plus I found this website: http://www.lesmerveillesdumercredi.com/chico/chico.html it's all in french and despite being Canadian, I don't do french, but at least it is tangible evidence that i was not some victim of mass hysteria. Although, truth be told, I don't know how "mass" the hysteria could have been if I can only fingd six people on the planet who have ever seen it! I did find the word to his little song. It's ever so catchy. ahem. "Chico, chico the rainmaker...Chico, chico the rainmaker....Chico, chico the rainmaker.... chico paco walla wanna make de rain." Never heard of Vegtable Soup, sorry. At least not to my current recollection. I'll do a search of that and see if I can trigger anything.
from weeme :
P.S. I think it's extra fabulous (and pathetic) that you've been plagued by something so memorably named. The Dunwich Horror.... it sounds like a goth band or perhaps a band that might have squared off against The Gruesomes in some wacky Saturday morning cartoon contest.
from weeme :
I'm listening to your Mp3 and am feeling much like I should be up and dancing like Elaine of Seinfeld. Ah yes... "Chico the Rainmaker". Chico is (or rather was) a British kids program produced by the BBC (a Thames production, in fact, I remember that clearly) about a shrunken head from Mexico and this gang of kids. Chico would sing and blink and his severed head ( wrapped up in a grimy red bandana and featuring long stingy black hair and a leather headband), would bounce around in the bike basket as these kids wheeled around from adventure to adventure and ocassionally, he would make it rain. It was horrific and wacky and the creators must have been on crack or something. I know only three other people in this world who remember it.... my brother, this guy I knew in University and my husband. The fact that Jack remembered Chico and could confirm I wasn't insane is half the reason I married him... other reasons being (but not necessarily limited to) the fact he's much taller than me and can reach all the stuff i can't, he's good at math and can therefore handle the financial ickiness adulthood requires, and he's really really cute and has a habit of airplaning around corners like a four year old. Is your dad an actor?
from weeme :
Oh My GOD! what a bizzare cosmic connection we have.... In the bookstore today as i was picking up yet more kiddie lit (Noel Streatfield's classic Ballet Shoes) We passed the movie/televion section and I pointed out to JacK the "uofficial guide to the Prisoner.) Patrick Macgoghan (sp?) is all so British and Dreamy and those freaky white balloons! "I am not a number!" Jack actually went as the Prisoner (dear old number 6) one year for halloween. It took me ages and ages to neatly pipe his blazer with white hockey tape and to paint up hs little number 6 badge. He had a white helium balloon tailing him. Another friend went as number 2. Absolutely no one got it though. : ( I'm sorry but I haven't a clue about the other shows although "Quark" rings a bell. Oh and i have a vague awareness of Dr.Who, but can't say I ever really watched it. hey...ever hear of "The Tommorrow People"? and I'll be forced to declare you my long lost sibling or bear you children or something if you know "Chico the Rainmaker."
from weeme :
and Star Trek, not Stark Trek... but i'm guessing you knew that!
from weeme :
er... that was suppose to read "What's her name".....!
from weeme :
Thankyou for adding the buttons! Much obliged. I've been driving myself nuts trying to remember Barbra Bain's character's name.... and I finally remembered. Came to me out of the blue as I was trying to pick a red onion at the grocery store.... Elenna. She was a doctor of course just like what's her mane... the redhead on Stark Trek: the Next Generation...Wesley / Will Wheaton's mom.....you know the one. O yes... My husband, Jack, is still pretty much completely besotted with Agent 99. Also her contemporary counterpart: Jennifer Garner/Sydney Bristow of Alias.
from weeme :
the shape-shifter was Maya. She had groovy eyebrows, but i like Sondra better. My husband has a Space 1999 poster that we uncovered last summer while digging out his old telescope. They were in the same box and we'd long forgotten ot was there. I keep intending to have it framed and put it in the bathroom or something... even though it will completely clash with my oh-so subtly asian design scheme. This is a fundamental struggle for me... my adult good taste is always at odds with my rootbeer-loving, mentos popping inner child with the interest in timmy Tiptoes, Earthworm Jim, plastic dinosaur clocks, Space 1999 Posters and Powerpuff Girls. sigh.
from weeme :
okay, that was me in your gbook going on about Stewart's Creme Soda... I can't seem to remeber to plug in my name and url in your book, maybe 'cuz those fields are filled. Maybe 'cuz gbooks aren't so much my thing. I enjoy the Notes section. No farting about with urls and such like. Still wishing you better health! and much success on the Sims front.
from gigabit :
you know I *wish* I could arc-weld in my sleep! man. but I figure I'll just be able to solder very small processor connections when I develop rem behavior disorder...
from cosmokane :
there's something to be said for the non-endless 4-hour set (except for the time when i saw guided by voices, and they played for 2 and a half hours, and they played over 50 songs (i counted), and everyone was so ready to go home, except for the band itself). for example, richie hawtin is much better heard for a 4-hour live set than on a 1-hour cd. it's funny how technology can change people's notions of time. first, it contracted time, because music had to fit on one side of a record. then technology expanded time, because when crossfading (and mixing) was invented, dj's could create an illusion of continuity and stretch time out by playing THE SONG THAT NEVER STOPS. it's a little sad that people's attention spans now are geared towards the three minute pop song instead of the several-hour symphony.
from gigabit :
so you're right that the article talked about extreme cases, but the interesting thing is that they developed in people in their mid-life... what may develop in us?
from cosmokane :
wow that article on middle eastern music was fascinating. those "music men" were early dj's of sorts, except that they took requests. i was struck by the fact that one time, most people's disposable income was spent on music recordings. ah, the halycon days (pre-tv).
from weeme :
Sound advice, that! Thanks. I'm still reeling about how weird and karmic and coincidental your dream is! I think it has to be a good omen! I mean, up until a week ago, it was just a twinkle in my eye so to speak and I've only talked aout it with like four people so far...!!! I've been spinning my wheels for almost a year now, being all woefully underemployed and rather more unproductive than I dared admit to anyone, including myself. I've been reading over some of your enteries and I have the feeling you can relate a bit. But this new business idea has giving me a much needed creative boost and for the first time in a long while, I'm excited about my so-called career! I had my own biz before we moved here (to Toronto) two years ago, and was doing well. But being a one horse outfit was starting to wear... it's gets lonely at times and when you have no one else to bounce ideas off of, you start wondering if you've stopped growing or whether your conceptual thinking is on target or not... on the other hand, you become very resourceful and I have complete confidence in my ability to figure it out now, to muddle through to some workable solution. Partnering with my husband (who is the creative director for a national television network) has revived my interest and determination. Together we can balance each other and move in a fresh direction. So, you know...full steam ahead.
from weeme :
argh...totally left out my name and stuff on the gbook message....Dear Habbit the Prophet...Could you tell if my design company was making me filthy rich or not?!! holy cow, dude... you're good.
from jcruelty :
ps a spontaneous confession: in high school i used to read ad&d books. i never actually *played*, but for some reason the books fascinated me. "deities and demigods" was the shizznat. (it wont let me leave this msg in the guestbook cos i 'can't sign again that fast'. what, like i'm a stalker or something? screw that)
from kittybukkake :
Since when do you leave me notes? I could pry that bar offa you, just you wait and see. I will use my magic rere play-plastic crowbar! It has a "Smurfette Rules!" puff-paint drawing on it.
from cosmokane :
my friend triet was actually at that monolake show at storyville. he also introduced me to anthony rother and that regis album! do you spin techno? i don't know of anyone outside of techno who would know of regis.
from btchelicious :
It takes about 2 hours to get from NYC to philly. Easliy can be done in one day. I think it might take a little longer on the train depending on how you do it (i.e. amtrak vs. NJtransit). We might be going to the mutter museum early in the day (before noon). There is a really nice duchamp collection of work in the Philly art museum. We have no plans to go there, but I do recommend seeing it if you are interested in duchamp. email me at btchelicious@hotmail.com if you want to get more info about trains and such (I used to live in NYC and periodically travelled between NYc and philly). Or try to catch me if you have AIM (btchelicious) or MS messenger I am b_tchelicious@hotmail.com
from blandman :
Hey, check you eeee-may-all.
from cosmokane :
wow, i just worked out to monolake today and i was listening to the anthony rother hacker album on the bus home two days ago. parallels.
from shamsi9 :
music's going better, thanks for asking. am in an upswing. returning to the idealism of my past. new band in the works.
from btchelicious :
should I add your name to the list or rampagers or should I wait?
from solarlab :
hey secret lover. i'm sorry shit is going down on your end. i'm glad you wrote. i've been missing you. there was a minute there i thought we'd actually talk on the phone but now i am so very far away. what is up with pokemon? i am so totally out of the loop. xo, f....
from beulahbondo :
Take a nap! Stop thinking and reading and typing so much! Your vata/pitta/kapha will get all deranged. (I'm a hippie, too! But I put Costa Rican Scooby Doo stickers on my Nalgene bottle, so what subgenre does that make me?)

my tongue is cracked like a Mexican arroyo. A chinese doctor told me it's because I run hot....rawrr! Hope you're having a better day. Try wearing fleecy socks. Fondly, BB

Topic Winners: habbit, peth, bitchy. The contest isn't OVER. Vote for one of these three for the best overall essay!
from weeme :
By the way, looking forward to seeing your new template. And hoping your books are looking less flea like and your tummy is feeling less troubled!
from weeme :
Yes, there's a built-in font manager on OSX and OS 9 comes with Adobe Type Manager (ATM), but OS X is radically different from OS 9, so they use entirely diffferent systems. This is where I'm having my problems! Thanks so much for the offer of help! i'll figure it out eventually or die trying! Or failing that, I'll finally have to break down and update my software so I don't have any more of these cross platform issues! oy vey... it never ends.
from weeme :
oooo... I'm offering to erect a huge bronze monument in honour of the person who can help me with my font problem! My problem is that I'm on Mac OS 10.1 now, but most of my software has yet to be updated and I use it in classic mode. I can't seem to transfer some fonts from OS X to OS 9 so that I can use them in Photoshop and Illustrator and thus, i'm horribly confused. Given that, Can you help? Do you use a Mac or harbour mystical Mac powers that would enable you to provide assistance? I'd be ever so grateful!
from jonasparker :
I dunno, just traffic. People stopping by there, reading, leaving comments. That type of thing.
from jonasparker :
Hey Habbit,that early porn entry was beautiful. I am definitely considering you for SPM. If you can drum up some traffic there...
from cosmokane :
there are a number of dnb tunes fit for a wake: "demon's theme" and "music" by ltj bukem, "one and only" by pfm, "springbox rmx" by matrix, "demon seed" by exocet," "renegade snares" by omni trio, "inner city life" by goldie, "it's all right, i feel it rmx" and "just a dream" by roni size. give these a listen, and maybe you'll agree?
from pitty-sing :
my inner ear itches. what music do you recommend, in place of a q-tip?
from blandman :
The contest is OVER. No one entered an entry in "2) Why I'm a liar and I can't really be trusted" essay topic. Only bitchy entered the "4) Things I would like to see someone eat but I would NEVER eat" topic. BUT we have some good competition in the remaining two topics. Essayists, habbit and cracklaugh are battling over "1) Why I like money". There is fierce competition for the "3) My most socially disturbing and offensive opinion.". That competition is just delicious. See http://blandman.diaryland.com/EssayVoting.html for voting directions! Also see my note to you essayists at: http://blandman.diaryland.com/Contestants.html
from solarlab :
and i was calling you lovely. thanks for the pic. it makes this subculture slightly less surreal.
from solarlab :
oh lovely, i don't want to talk about it. i was in l.a. because the roads were said to be snowed in and my posse was not up for any risks. i am suspect of any reports there. the locals want to keep out the masses. i'm sure the roads were perfect. i needed to say goodbye to some people down there. and i fell in love. good thing i'll be 7000 miles away. i'm bummed we didn't see each other. i will call you. or you call me again. wow too long to write in here...

from vyv-xx :
If that other diary you read had only three entries, it was mine. I wrote about disgusting hygiene habits. The choose your own jimmy-jo-jam thing you sent me is the best one so far. Please for making the sex with me now.

Oh, and peth is the fucking hottest chick I have seen in a good long while. She has the cutest fucking nose ever. Seriously.
from vyv-xx :
You've seen one of the others??? Which one? The Live Journal one where I wrote that I had a crush on you? Huh? Answer me!!! Do you like Indian food? I bet you give good massages.
from vyv-xx :
When I come over, just make sure you're stocked up on peanut butter. The chunky kind. And Mr. Bubble. Lots and lots of Mr. Bubble. It'll be just like that night we spent at the Seven Bridges hotel in Amsterdam. 'Member that? Het was heerlijk.
from vyv-xx :
Aww...fuck. I wanted to leave a sexy picture in your guestbook, but it didn't work. I feel dizzy. Can I come over and jump on your bed?
