The great beyond

This weekend, I didn't have my usual drag meet, or boring teaching class, which I unfortunately was blackmailed into doing. Instead I ventured across the sea to the "Forsaken Fortress" to rescue my sister who was kidnapped by a giant bird the previous weekend. It was a perilous journey across what seemed to be an endless sea filled with talking fish to the edge of a map given to me by my talking boat who is my personal translator and "guide to the seas". But at long last I reached the fortress only to realise that I have to leave again to retrieve an item called the "Master Sword".
The sword which I absolutely needed to in order to defeat the "Legendary Evil" which was indirectly in control of the bird who has captured my sister. After many trails, sea sickness and tribulations I finally rescue my sister but was unable to banish the "Legendary Evil" because apparently my "Master Sword" which was given to me by my "Great Ancestors" has lost it's stuff and can no longer do anything useful. So I'll have to fix that, but that will have to wait until next weekend.

site update: yes I've messed with stylesheet once again. The site is now 400 pixels wide.

Pimpers Paradise

One of the most difficult things I've discovered with this whole website development process is actually explaining what my website is about with sounding like a TOTAL GEEK. Building the web site itself is easy and surprisingly cheap if you know the right people. Now in my case, I have website. Got it up and running in record time. Changing it a few of times as facilitate the size of my head and silly little standards that popup. But basically it's up and running, now how do I describe it(the website) to people? especially old people and the cute Asian girls who don't speeck english. i.e. if I find any.

Blame It On The Drink

Every now and then I get inspired to let lose and spit a few rhymes; Soon I'll have a full album and sell platinum. Music is where the money is;

I just saw the car on the website and I said to myself "WOW". Then pictured me rolling down the street on three 20 inch rims, riding on the side, laid back with my mind on my money and my money on my mind. Cause I got so much money. I'm so fly, so high and troublesome I decided to roll out in my gator boots at mid-day (cause I ain't got no job).
Head down to atl for some southern hospitality, women see me, ask we what's we fantasy, Nice & Lovely. All the women chasing cash. Why do good girl like bad guys? Cause they don't know who we be. Under me guiness it a different ting. I hate it when there are too many women and not enough hos, too many rookies and not enough pros. Anyting go down - it wasn't me, all the ladies round the bend gimme de light. aIright, take five. multiply. cause we on another level, giving you originality. Haters and Fools caan get no gal. Look in to my eyes tell me what you see. say what you wanna say it's the way I am, whatever you say I am, if I wasn't then why would I say I am. We jamming.

Bacardi on the rocks please. I'm not going to teach you people how to write computer programs - I'm sorry - leave me alone.

When Worlds Collide

written by owen, published 2004-Jun-14, comment

It's been a weird couple a months for the people on earth. Besides the whole Iraq "War on Terrorism" issue. Probably I'm the only one who has noticed but alot of weird once in a lifetime crap has been happening recently. 5 planets line up, Mars reaches the closest it's ever been in like 30 yrs, Venus floats in front of sun which has last happened 100 years ago.
What's up? What's next. Is this like the bestest astrological period ever? Should I get a telescope? Is the sun going to go super-gaint bad ass and blow the solar system to shit? Or have I been reading too many CNN Space Science Update newsletters? The day after tommorow.
I'm a crazy information nut. I know when I've had enough and when I'm simply just getting weird and if I hear another person refer to me as being weird I'm going to do explode. I don't even read the horoscopes covering my ears as it ever-so-often happened to come on the radio in my presence. No, I don't want to know if today is going to be a good day or the sun going to go super-gaint bad ass and blow the solar system to shit. Now stocks that's something I'd want to know about but apparently nobody I know has any foreign stocks. If I missed any astro-events feel free to add a comment.
update: members can now change the website appearance by editing the CSS style sheet ala waferbaby.

Doubletalk Gets Through to You

written by owen, published 2004-May-29, comment

I missed another LAN party (gathering to play computer games) yesterday. I got where I was going too late so I didn't get to leave early. My laziness took over, I'm sorry for being such a bitch.
Anyhow I think I might watch the day after tommorow today which is saturday so in that I can review it and add something to the articles section before monday which will be the day after tommorow depending on when your reading this. I don't expect it to be a really good movie I just like the rain.

I like to hear the rain beating down on a red zinc roof like an orchestra of drums until it becomes one sound. Not continuous but at a light rhythm as if it were the wind above my head and all around.

I've added the user list as faith suggested so that you can see the people who actually registered to the site. Not that you actually need to register but the option is there. Also I tried to make it less of a waferclone as humanly possible. Peace out until next week.
