Good Changes:
1.) I can feel my addiction to social networking sites dwindling.  I haven't checked livejournal for about a week and I haven't checked facebook for several days, either.  Normally I would have checked them a few times each day. There isn't anything on them, and I'm busy.  I like being busy, and I think spending tons of time on facebook or livejournal is a symptom of not having enough to do.  (In my case, at least) So I've solved it.  I just stopped by to brag.
2.) Working on applying for non-profit status for Cigar Box Home Library.  I feel this is attainable, and the work required is fulfilling.  I am finally having to itemize the reasons for the existence of this orgnazation in a way that suits will understand.
3.) I have been budgeting like hell.  I no longer feel broke, even though the majority of each of my paychecks is already earmarked.  I am simply putting the money I make towards 1.) prior obligations and 2.) practical purchases.
4.) I got rid of about 90% of the books I owned.  I have a lot of space, and I am not buying books to replace this.  I am not spending money on books this way, and I am not filling my apartment with things that I won't pay attention to.
5.) A friend drew me a picture of a man and a woman having sex in missionary position.  The man is defecating.  I hung it up on my wall tonight.
6.) CBHL had a rummage sale at Bottletree last week.  We made $650, which is more money than we've ever had.  We can now afford to finance most of the publications we will want to do for the forseeable future.
7.) A new girl. ;)
8.) Plastic clothes hangers.

Bad Changes:
1.) Jimmy Fallon

Comic about Girls and Life or SomethingCollapse )

I want to tell you some shit that this thing made me think about.

1.)  Romance and romantic relationships are for suckers.  I don't know why, but this shit has made me angry.  Life is a series of things to be done for different reasons.  Some things have to be done alone.  But being involved in a romance makes one more likely to think that two can do it better.  No.  Two people are a crowd in some cases, and being in a relationship is going to get in the fucking way.  Some things have to be done by more than one person, but I'm gonna let you know that those things need to be done by more than two people.  In the gauzy haze of romance, you may try to tell yourself that you can do everything important in a two-person method, but you're wrong. You either need to widen out and embrace a larger group of people with every bit of passion that you have been reserving for your favorite, or you need to suck it up and be by yourself.  Because that's what this is all about.  Romance is an elaborate way for your body to get you to make a baby, and it's enforced by the insecurities we've been taught to live with.  You want to fuck because somewhere in the back of your head,  you want to make a baby.  And you want someone to help you be okay.  No. No.  You're not okay, and no one can fix that.  Fuck what everyone says, and own up.  Being alone and trying to work out what is wrong with you is in so many ways superior to being lazy and thinking it's okay to be a jerk because one person is as needy as you are. 

2.)  I'm not trying to tell you that you should have sex with anyone you want.  No.  Because sex is fucking boring and awkward and gross.  You need to live like a monk and fix your own shit instead of making internet cartoons telling everyone to get a real job so someone will love them, because.

3.) Fuck someone loving you and fuck a real job!  Just get a job.  Who cares what it pays, because like I said, and like Jesus tried to tell you fools, you need to sell all your shit and live like a monk while you're figuring out what's wrong with you.  If being a barista is enough for you, money wise and/or ambition wise, then do it.  It's easy.  Just don't work corporate and you'll probably be pretty happy.  Once you establish a work history in small businesses, then other small businesses will be more willing to hire you.  They won't pay much, but you need to quit buying so much shit anyway, even for other people.  If you want to make a gesture to show that you care for someone, then you need to do better than giving them some trinket you had no more hand in than trading pieces of paper for it.  So fuck what they said about that. And also, don't think think I'm telling you to try and make money with creative endeavors or to "do what you love."  No.  Don't try to pay the bills doing what you're passionate about.  If you care enough about it, i would try to avoid involving the poisonous taint of the dreaded greenback.

Two great minds on this:

Charles Ives: "Perhaps the birth of art will take place at the moment in which the last man who is willing to make a living out of art is gone and gone forever..."  (I want you to know that Charles Ives worked at an insurance agency until he died, all the while being one of the most inventive and productive American composers of his time.  He poured needed funds into the art world by working elsewhere, instead of stealing the dreaded greenbacks from where they were needed.)

Cindy Lauper: "Money changes everything."

You know?  I mean, I don't care what the fuck any of you do.  I don't care what anyone does.  But I have enough trouble knowing that everyone thinks my worldview is wrong without being confronted with abrasive and shittily drawn comics about why it's wrong.

Things I used to like, but don't like so much anymore:
Pearlized buttons/western shirts
Side-zips on boots
Long hair
Corduroy

Things I used to not like but like a lot now:
Boat shoes
Loafers
Epaulets
Short hair
Lace boots (not work boots, though)
Khakis
Polo Shirts

Today I remembered that I used to wear undershirts under every shirt I wore.  If it was a t-shirt day, it was a 2 t-shirt day.  If I buy some white undershirts with V-neck collars, you won't be able to see the collar and I won't have to wash my shirts as often.

plans [Jan. 1st, 2009|09:31 pm]

I: Living room:
A.) I have a couch, but I feel that chairs are a silly way to relax.  Why have your legs dangling?  Why not sit closer to the ground?

B.) Solution:  Find a futon mattress and some pillows.  Build a headboard about a foot and a half tall and the width of said futon mattress and you're better off.  (To prevent slipping of the mattress, it might be good to build a simple frame.)  You can lie down and watch television!  Fuck raised seating, just put that fucker on the floor.  Why do we sit so high up?  Everyone just wants to lie down anyway.

C.) I have a lot of books that take up a lot of space, and cause a need for several shelves.  These have cost me a lot of money, they are consistently a problem to organize properly and keep up with, and I will probably never read them (even if I were going to, most of these books could be found for free at a local library). 

D.) Solution:

1: Whittle books down to a bare minimum (that being books that were given to me or that have proven their worth to me), which probably means 50 books at maximum.  Excess books can be sold at a rummage sale or sold online to help fund CBHL, because there are a lot of them.

2: Wall mount two shelves for books, each about 3 feet long, using sturdy shelving brackets. (If each shelf is only going to hold 25 books, I feel that there won't be much problem on the load-bearing side of things, but I seems that 6 total feet might be too much.  More research will be done and plans will be retro-fitted accordingly).

3: Now that I am freed of the necessity for floored shelving, I can house my LPs in a way that is friendlier to flipping if I go so far as to build a tub, approximately 2 feet wide X 2 feet long X 1 foot deep and set on a table approximately 1.5 feet off the ground (an end table with legs sawed short might suffice once the crate itself is completed).
 
II. Workspace:

A.) My workspace is at present confined to a dining room table with milk-crates stacked on it.  All my computer stuff is stacked high and there's no real way to make any kind of filing system or any other method for keeping everything organized.  Not to mention that the size and (necessary) positioning of said dining table makes it inconvenient to get to my cabinets, now placed to the right of the workspace (when looking in the space from out).

B.) The Solution: 

1:  Workspace part 1 (Idea comes from Evan G.):
Build a loft above my bed, which is just a mattress and box-spring on the floor.  The ceiling in the bedroom is 8 feet high, meaning that to give myself a comfortable height for sitting on this study loft, it will have to be about 4 feet below the ceiling, and about 4 feet above the floor.  The loft will be 5.5 feet wide, 7.5 feet deep, made of 11 planks 6 inches wide and 5.5 feet long (an inch high), and will be supported by a frame of 4x4's.  Preferably it will be topped with plexiglass.
On the loft I will keep two coffee tables 3.5 feet wide and 1.5 feet deep to use as desks (as I said before, fuck chairs), each placed at one end, as well as a set of wire drawers and a small bookshelf.  One will be used as a computer table and will house computer accoutrements (laptop, speakers, hard-drive, printer).  The other will be used for drafting or other hand-writing purposes.  The wire drawers and bookshelf will obviously be used for storage.
For further storage, a bulletin style pinboard and a pegboard will be used, one for mapping ideas, one for hanging cords and other loose items.

2: Workspace part 2:
Eliminate dining room table.  Replace with coffee table identical to the tables placed on the study loft.  Above this, hang each of my guitars (of which there are 6).  Above this, hang a shelf 6 feet long for storage of other items not readily hung.  This, obviously, will be used as a recording space.
