Coming soon. Crossposting from my regular blog to here as well...

Long time no visit. But I've been busy...

Because of time constraints, I will not really be on Advogato much anymore. I need to set up my own page, and there might be a diary there. I also will be contributing more to the H2G2 site. It's been lots of fun, and I'll see you around. If you want to contact me further, you can mail me at Schizopolis.net. Ciao.

This World Must Be Destroyed

Forget the atom bomb. Leave the TV out of this. The Stereo System is the worst invention of the modern era. No other device enables assholes to annoy as many people as possible. And I seem to be surrounded by quite a few. There's the oaf across the way who fancies himself a house DJ and has to play the most repetitive music possible at MAXIMUM VOLUME while sitting in his window in underwear and smoking (some people should wear lots of clothes; if he laid on the beach, Greenpeace would try to push him back into the water (if you get my drift)). And then there is the stoner downstairs who decided that last night was the perfect time for bass-heavy rap. All night long. And let's not forget the young toughs who cruise the neighborhood blasting their music out of their cars.

There is a certain fascism to loud stereo playing. The feeling that your music is not only superior, but that you MUST force it on all around you. And it only seems to involve a certain type of person. Young egotistical men who feel they are superior to everyone else. Maybe they should have a special background check for stereo equipment... I'm sorry, we'd love to sell you the Bose, but our psychological check shows you're a vain prick... Ah well, I can dream.

Buying a place in Brooklyn is starting to look more attractive all the time.

vab, sorry to hear about the bilirubin scare. I have Gilbert's syndrome myself, which means that I always am somewhat jaundiced. It's not too noticeable unless you look at my eyes when I'm stressed and hungry. I also have to tell doctors when I get blood tests so they don't freak out. I sincerely hope that's the problem and not anything else. I have never had jaundice that severe, so I am concerned for you. Of course, I'm not a doctor and my opinion should be taken with a boulder of salt.
