Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Posted 21 January 2002, 11.59 am by marilee

As I revise my resume, stare at it, proof-read it, and revise it some more I think to myself, "I haven't done that badly." Receptionist, Retail Sales Clerk, Concession Manager, Ticket Sales. All high-paying jobs for what they are, always made a couple dollars more than minimum. Committed, involved, active, not to mention dearly loved (but I would never put that on my resume) at my highschool. A wide range of computer skills. Office skills and retail skills. Great references.

Of course, this feeling of pride and accomplishment only lasts for a couple seconds, as most. It sinks in that I have failed my one attempt at a serious relationship, have no idea what I am going to do for the rest of my life and can't dance, sing or play a musical instrument worth a damn.

I wonder to myself, will I ever be happy, satisfied, complete? Will I ever be content with my life and situation? Will that feeling of accomplishment ever be more than fleeting? If so, would my life even be worth living? Without the need to one-up myself, the drive to prove I'm better than what I am currently worth, would any of this be worth it? Would I sit in a chair, doing nothing new, nothing exciting, the same thing day in and day out?

When I get a 97% on a paper I whine and beat myself up for not studying hard enough. When I notice the raise on my pay cheque, I am not happy but wonder what I could do to make it higher next year. When someone tells me I'm pretty I feel I must be ugly because they didn't say I was beautiful. When someone tells me they are starting to feel close to me, I am ashamed I couldn't make myself closer.

I conclude from this that it is not a bad thing I look down on myself. I am doing myself a favour never being satisfied with my test scores, grades, work ethic, relationships, talents and skills. I can only better myself this way. It must be a good thing.

A special time, my friends

Primates, hunters, strong, dominant; top of the food chain.
Mammals, humans, intelligent, progressing; unique beings.
Countries, people, civilisation, individuals; now safe from physical challenge.
Society, belonging, adaptation, evolution; ever changing.

We are no longer simple animals. What we create as the fabric of society - essentially every aspect of everyday life - transforms us into exactly that - what we create. Over six billion brains and bodies influencing each other - making scientific, technological, medical and sociological advances unbelievable a hundred years ago; incomprehensible a thousand years ago. In the lifetime of this planet - and most other species on it - a thousand years is but a blink. For humanity, a single year has come to mean change in every sector; and advancement in the same.

We no longer fight the other species with which we share the earth - the converse, we fight to keep them from extinction by our own hands. We no longer fight to eat, to have a safe place to sleep - instead we try to leave the planet, and see what's on the next one. We are an amazing species, make no mistake. Alone, man is inventive, intelligent, resourceful. But he is physically frail, and far inferior should he come to hand-to-claw/paw combat. But, in the global society which the cream of those six billion come together - we do things reach into the very makeup of life - and proceed to learn, copy, and master the physics of life.

I am proud to be human. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to live in such a world, especially at such a critical period in the evolution of man. I am excited at the prospect of what new developments may produce - and the role I can have, as pioneer, or, more likely, wide-eyed observer.

Life as a human is magical. You only have to look at yourself - skin, limbs, eyes and a heart which fall little short of a miracle. Life as a human in a world where we are but ants in a vast library - complete with TV and video games - is all the more exciting.

Look up, take stock, take a deep breath and fucking well live life to the fullest.

Ninjas are mammals

Posted 19 January 2002, 7.22 pm by Alexander

Holy Jesus!

Ninjas can kill anyone they want! Ninjas cut off heads ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time. I heard that there was this ninja who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the ninja killed the whole town. My friend Mark said that he saw a ninja totally uppercut some kid just because the kid opened a window.

This is the funniest site I've seen for a very very long time.

FBI's top 10 most wanted

Posted 19 January 2002, 3.25 pm by Craig

You might not beleive this but I found Alexander's picture Here...

or maybe I didn't...

Anyway. Have you even wondered what Video game Character you would be? I have, and today I found out that I am a shitty Scorched Earth Tank!! Either that or a a Space-invader... Click here to find out what you are...

I am a Scorched Earth Tank.

When I have a mission, it consumes me; I will not be satisfied until the job is done. I have a strong sense of duty, and a strong sense of direction. Changes in the tide don't phase me - I always know which way the wind blows, and I know how to compensate for it. I get on poorly with people like myself. What Video Game Character Are You?

Fugazi's Latest Venture

Posted 18 January 2002, 5.41 pm by Sunny2Tall

Artist: Fugazi
CD: The Argument
Label: Dischord

When I first heard Fugazi it was being blasted from a $10 boom box in the back of pet store as young skaters attempted jumping off the loading dock. The album was 13 Songs, and I had never heard anything so wretched as Ian MacKaye’s vocals. So of course the very next day I went out and bought the album. After listening to it several times over I found what people were hearing. It wasn’t about the vocals; it was about how everything together seemed to fit seamlessly. The guitar was not stepping on the vocals, the bass wasn’t overbearing and obtrusive, the drums settled themselves nicely in the background but were punchy enough to be noticed. The only way I could really compare what I’m speaking of to another band is to bring up names like Led Zeppelin and Tool.
The latest installment from Dischord’s Fugazi, The Argument, captures the same musical vibe that their previous albums do, and has an even more impressive repertoire of songs, my favorite being a song called Cashout.

Final notes: If you’re not into experimenting with lesser-known bands, or if you’re prone to heart attacks you will not enjoy this CD. However, if you don’t mind trying new things, or you are a previous Fugazi fan this album will probably make your day.

like a slumping gorilla thrown against a wall staring with deadpan eyes that convey a lifeless dissatisfied existence i find it hard to care about anything right now with


feelings emotions perceptions deficiencies unhappiness


the storm rages outside and the curious wind patterns outside my window cause the snowflakes to fall upwards as if the ground is falling in some apocalyptic uprising that i witness halfasleep sitting up slumped in my bed as the sleep in my eyes obscures my


of gold and green and grey and blue and the evasive concept just outside my perception that some people like to call


is otherwise appropriately dubbed


means no


yourself there

sweating bullets

like ice




Seattle Greyhound Station

Posted 18 January 2002, 6.18 am by marilee

The Seattle Greyhound bus station is awful. Especially at 4am. I suggest you never travel through Seattle at night. It is dirty and the arcade it lame. The little restaurant is even lamer than the arcade. If you are female scary boys who don't speak English hit on you. There is also the psychopath that obsessively drys her dress in the woman's washroom. The security guards don't let you sleep on the floor past 6am. It's also appears to be on the edges of Seattle's crack town so you don't feel any safer leaving the bus station. Even if it was in a nice part of town nothing is open that early in the morning so it doesn't really matter. I rate the Seattle Greyhound station a very generous 1 out of 10.
