What song would you choose as the theme song for your life?


No One Lives Forever by Oingo Boingo

You worry too much
You make yourself sad
You can't change fate
But don't feel so bad
Enjoy it while you can
It's just like the weather
So quit complaining brother
No one lives forever

Let's have a party there's a full moon in the sky
It's the hour of the wolf and I don't wanna' die

I'm so happy
Dancing while the Grim Reaper
Cuts cuts cuts but he can't get me
I'm clever as can be
I'm very quick
But don't forget
We've only got so many tricks
No one lives forever

You think you've got it rough
What about your darling doggie
In ten short years
He's getting old and groggy
I don't think it's very fair
Cold shot low
But it's all that it is my friends
No one lives forever

Let's have a party there's a full moon in the sky
It's the hour of the wolf and I don't wanna' die

I'm so happy
Dancing while the Grim Reaper
Cuts cuts cuts but he can't get me
I'm clever as can be
I'm very quick
But don't forget
We've only got so many tricks
No one lives forever

Break:

You worry too much
You make yourself sad
You can't change fate
But don't feel so bad
Enjoy it while you can
It's just like the weather
So quit complaining brother
No one lives forever

Let's have a party there's a full moon in the sky
It's the hour of the wolf and I don't wanna' die

No one beats him at his game
For very long but just the same
Who cares there's no place safe to hide
Nowhere to run no time to cry
So celebrate why you still can
Cause any second it may end
And when it's all been said and done
It's better if you had some fun
Instead of hiding in a shell
Why make your life a living hell
Drink a toast down the cup
Drink the bones I'll turn to dust

'Cause No one Lives forever

It always diminishes the lure, creativity, and “special”ness of whatever it was.
Whether we are talking about case-mods, wardriving, “going green” or in the case of what irked me, body modification, it all tends to be the same.

Once the sheeple get involved and it is mundane, then everyone is an expert, every dumbass who has some money thinks they understand the point, or that they even *have* a point.

With body modification, any man who got an earring or any person who got something pierced other than ears as little as 20 years ago was a little bit off. military and criminals got tattoos. But as it got to be more accepted it all got…

cleaner

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I personally like not having hepatitis. I can appreciate the sterility of a clean and well run shop. But it also has turned everyone into pussies of a sort. If you don’t do everything the way the hive mind says then you’d better already be at the forefront of new creative techniques, otherwise you are just a dumbass tard. To quote a response to a post in which I was defending a girl’s choice to do things with her own body the way she wanted -

“however, if you’re just being a retard on purpose, you make the rest of us look bad.”

really? wow. When did what I did to my body ever have anything to do with what other people were doing to theirs?

Why the hell *would* you change your body if you were thinking about what other people thought? That’s an even scarier proposition when you consider the fluctuation of norms within a society. I’m curious - any of you who read this. Why *do* you modify your body? is it purely aesthetic? is it because all of your friends do it? is it for a spiritual purpose, or some other extravagant or mundane reason?

I’ll start - I put holes in and ink on my body for two reason. One - I do like it aesthetically. This is why I like shapes better than things in tattoos. I always love the look of a well drawn line - not so much for some band or movie. More importantly, it is a way for me to personally show mental dominance over my body. a 4 hour session of tattooing or sticking piercing needles through your dork may be easy for some people. For me it isn’t, but it is like my own personal gom-jabbar. I do it for me, and while I am pleased in a narcissistic sort of way if someone appreciates it, if someone *doesn’t* like it I’m not affronted.

So, how about you?

this is for yesterday, if anyone is keeping track.

I'm happy that, even when we fight, Diane and I always end up working it out before we go to sleep.

What made me happy today was diane running up and yelling "hug stair!" as I stood at the second to top of the stairs waiting for her.

I'm 6', she's 5' 2" - if you need more explanation for "hug stair" I'm not giving it:)

and she said it like Leland says "toy store!" in

Since we were moving the employee co-located servers to a new vlan I decided to do a reinstall on the server. I don’t care much about Gentoo anymore, and Ubuntu server was nice and shiny. I tried reinstalling only to find that one of the procs died on the server and the harddrive was full of errors.

I found a nice deal on geeks.com

Rackable Systems Dual Opteron 246 HE 2.0, 4GB RAM and 120GB IDE drive for a nice price ($130 sweet) and got it within 3 days.

So now all of my sites and Diane’s are back online and happy with the latest stable versions of all software and I even upgraded WordPress to boot.

You just have to do these things every once in awhile so you don’t get tooooo crusty, ya know?

Yes yes, it is monday, and I've used that song before.

but - I was tagged by _joi so I have to...

Rules:
For eight days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag eight people to do the same.

My happy for today? We officially are getting the Fridays after Christmas and New Years off as extra holidays. Woot. Oh, and a little extra scratch from the company Christmas cards is nice too.

previous entry locked, because I was being a dick, and really didn't need to keep doing so.

need to learn to not post emotional. I don't do it often, but when I do, I get pretty damned catty.
Do any of you have an in at Google?

I'm trying to find a business contact and assume any email sent to a published email address will be drowned out in white noise.

Comments are screened

Thanks!

in an effort to not talk about the asshattery at the club Saturday night (I think Jeff was less pissed by the situation than most of us were at how he was treated)

I present to you, the most screwed up thing a coworker has sent to me today.

I post weird crap from time to time that is to some, offensive.

This cracked me up - but is not for everyone.

Definitely not safe for most people's work.

Definitely not fun for the whole family...

and there is definitely a lesson to be learned here .

don't say I didn't warn you...

I LOL'ed I cried, it was better than cats!

partially to show people that asked, and partially to keep track for myself

Here's a pic of the new left sleeve after 5 sittings

sitting 1 - 3 hours of drawing
sitting 2 - 3 hours of drawing/transferring/stenciling and 4 hours inking outline
sitting 3 - 5 hours inking lower forearm
sitting 4 - 5 hours inking inner arm
sitting 5 - 4 hours inking upper shoulder

that's how long I was there - not necessarily constant tattooing. Some stretching, peeing, eating and general asshatery too:)




the artist is Nicole at Rebel Art tattoo in Tempe and I'm quite pleased with how it's coming along.

http://rebelarttattoo.com/section/55416.html

no more from me til after the holidays though - need to buy the xmas prezzies!

edit: http://pics.livejournal.com/metalweb/pic/00044q14 was the original inspiration that we started from. I think it's messed up to use someone else's work without permission, and also thought I'd get better results from an artist able to make something original.

Your rainbow is shaded black.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What is says about you: You are a powerful person. You appreciate mystery. You may meet people who are afraid of you.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.


Black as my soul! :P

I mean, I *am* pretty freakin scary! =D

so, last week a hosting company got outed for hosting a vast majority of a huge botnet that did dDoS and spam. It was not a thing done through the courts, just a lot of investigation and then posting the information publicly so that that hosting companies bandwidth providers shut them off.

yay, score 1 for the good guys.

Unfortunately my company is implicated as the bad guys, and that we host lots of evil badness.

We resell bandwidth to a 3rd party. and they resell bandwidth to their customers. We keep the IP information pointing to us as owners so when abuse complaints come in we can deal with them. We are rather proactive on this issue, actually.

But because we own the IPs, the whole thing came back like we were supporting the issue of a circuit bought over a year ago by the customer of a customer that was used to transfer control of the botnet over to Russia:/

blargh.

They did all that research, and didn't get it right - not only that, I can only assume they think we do it intentionally. Instead of contacting us to do something about it, they did all the research and then just released it publicly. We found out we were implicated a week later because of a post on a message board!

And so far, my company hasn't done a single thing as far as a press release or damage control.

grrrr
