#1 Smoking. I had switched completely to those vapor, electric cigarettes about a month ago and went a whole month w/out a real cig...then it broke and I substituted real cigs till I could go get another one. Well, yeah, that never happened!
#2 Too friendly and approachable. This has always been a problem for me. Why? This gives every leech of society the opportunity to ask me for a favor. Don't get me wrong, I like to do nice things for people who deserve it, but after the third favor in a row, it gets old and annoying. I often pick up people who have broke down or run out of gas on the side of the road and that's a completely different matter all together- I ask for that aggravation. For example, it's when I go into a convenient store to buy a pack of smokes and soon as I walk out, some jackass rushes up to me begging for a smoke. I've seen these people pass up ten people holding cigarettes, but then target me. I mean, cigarettes are freak'in expensive, man! LOOK- 2 reasons to quit smoking right there- quit and I'd have those problems licked! Anyway, I get really irritated sometimes and when I ask my boyfriend, "WHY- why me?", he always says, "you're just too damn approachable." I try not to make contact with certain people because of this, but it usually doesn't help, they still gravitate to me. Of course, it could be that tattoo that reads "SUCKER" across my forehead. Hmmm...I guess that could cause a whole other set of problems, couldn't it!
#3 Watching EVERY true murder show I can find. My boyfriend HATES this. Every evening that he comes home from work and catches me watching one, he says, "What's wrong with you? And you're eating, while watching this shit!" YES, yes I am......and planning your murder. ;)
Oh, there's many more, believe me! I'll have to revise later.
Not sure where to put this, but when I saw AndreiDoubleJ's easier to remix, RECord the idea just hit me. Took awhile to get the animation pieces just right (since I'm at work and can only use PowerPoint!), but I'm hoping to maybe add some sounds.
I'm thinking at the end it would be the sounds an LP makes when it's at the end of the album side...that repetitive kind of thumping. =]
Anyway, let me know where you think it should go and I'll put it there. Hey, I mean on the site!!! ;)
I rarely ever skipped school. I followed the rules most of the time, cause I learned long ago that I'm the kind of person who can't get away with ANYTHING. I do remember skipping class one day and this is how pathetic the story goes: I craved one of those long bags of roasted peanuts you can get at any convenience store. I don't know if I missed lunch that day or what, but I just HAD to have me some of those damn peanuts. There just happened to be a convenience store located across the street from my high school, so when the bell rang to change class, I ran out the gates and escaped.
You would think that once I had gotten away with leaving the school grounds, I would find something to get into after satisfying my peanut craving, but no, not me.
I sat in an alley next to the store enjoying my bag of nuts, then went BACK. Yep, how sad and pathetic is that- what a loser! I waited till I heard the next bell ring, signifying the change of class again, and returned to school. Is that not the sorriest thing you've ever heard?
I guess I'm lucky they didn't catch me either coming or going, I doubt very seriously they would've bought my excuse. It would've been pretty embarrassing to say the least!
- A Cautionary Tale
Instrumental rock song. This is a blues based pop song that I wrote and recorded. I feel like it could really set up a good vocal melody or rap. Go wild :)
A while back I had a conversation with humberfloob about how computers (especially downloading) can change our concept of time. He thought it would be interesting if the download strip was used for an everyday-type appliance, and so this idea was born!
I'm not sure when this conversation took place, but it seems like awhile ago. I finally got off my butt and this is what I came up with.
In the unlikely chance that it was another hitRECorder I had this conversation with (my memory isn't as good as it once was), please let me know and I'll revise! =]
