So I have been posting less frequently then usual. A lot of things are on my mind. The label is doing well, but in sort of a transition period. We have four releases we're working on, with Honeybreath coming over on Wed, Thur, Fri to do recording and work on their press, merch, art, etc. Odelia has their audio master done, just waiting for the artwork and.. well, other label stuff I won't bore you with.

I have a interview with Mazda USA on Wed. $25 an hour to start, full-time. Do I really want to go back to a desk and answer calls, go to meetings, etc? Maybe. I'm, not sure yet. I think I'll try it out. I always have the label..

I've been here on Livejournal for about 4 years now, and while it's great, I'm getting tired of the limitations. I want to show you what songs I've been listening to, books I've been reading, pictures I am taking.. all of that, in an environment I have a little more control over.

I've registered cloud79.com and will be at least starting a blog there. I'll also stream music. Post my Del.icio.us links, a full photo gallery, plenty of features.

Let me know what you think. I've started working out. I bought a used Healthrider and it seems to be working well.

My birthday is October 23rd. I will be 26. I don't think I'm doing too bad. I've traveled parts of the US, I've been underground caving, rafting, I used to camp once a month. I've planted trees, started an Internet radio network, worked on collaborative projects, volunteered for Microsoft, beta and alpha tested what are now the World's most popular games, run an indie record label, loved, bought a nice car, lived in nice places of my own and with roommates, seen the Dalai Lama speak, worked for top tech companies like CNET and Trend Micro, I don't know, a lot. 10 years of technology when people didn't even know what a .com was. I feel alright about it. Here's to the next 65 years or so.

Maybe some day I'll own a t-shirt again. Or a pair of jeans. Or.. something not black, blue or khaki.

Good night.

I don't have a camera, or I'd try this. Well, a camera where i can do this.

Flickr photos labeled with "cameratoss", which result from when you set your camera to a long exposure time, click the shutter, and toss it in the air. Looks like spirograph...

To start with, my right hand has been cold all morning, while my left hand is fine. Odd.

Second, learn how to make a Spanglish Sandwich.

And even though Apple announced a new iPod today, Hannah, I think the nano is still better for you. You'll never watch episodes of Lost on some tiny screen, and you don't need a 30gb drive, a little cute nano (which, insanely is only 20 dollars less) is fine for you.

And... I'm off to shower.

Today and tonight was really great. Hannah came over and we did several wonderful things:

-Watched SNL
-Had lots of curling up together in bed
-Had a secret mission behind the supermarket
-She made dinner, I made.. firewood.
-Ate outside during the sunset
-Had a fire on the deck when it got dark
-Mad smores over the fire
-Watch the Angels win
-Had lots of looking into each others eyes moments

I feel really good.

I picked up a huge issue (apparently each month is huge) of Real Simple Magazine today at Plush and all I can say is Real Simple = Real Awesome.

If you go to the site and it asks for a you to sign in, click 'single issue users' and use the code 'noclutter' it will work all October :)

I'm pretty sure I'll get a subscription.

Here's something from this issue:

10 New Uses for Lemon
“Lemon juice is the strongest food acid in our kitchens, strong enough to make life unbearable for most bacteria,” says Robert Wolke, professor emeritus of chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh and the author of What Einstein Told His Cook 2: The Sequel, Further Adventures in Kitchen Science (W. W. Norton, $26).

Use Lemon to:
1. Sanitize a chopping block. Run a slice of lemon over the surface to disinfect.
2. Eliminate the browning that occurs when food sits out too long. Sprinkle apple or pear slices with lemon juice before serving, or squeeze a bit into guacamole and give it a stir.
3. Remove tough food stains from plastic and light-colored wooden cutting boards. Slice a lemon in half, squeeze the juice onto the soiled surface, rub, and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with water.
4. Fade tea stains on cloth. Dilute lemon juice with an equal amount of water. Use an eyedropper or a Q-tip to make sure the juice targets the stain. Thoroughly flush with cool water.
5. Decorate on the cheap. Fill a glass bowl with lemons for a sunny centerpiece. Or display a row of them along a windowsill.
6. Relieve a sore throat. Cut a lemon in half. Skewer one half over a medium flame on a gas stove or an electric burner set on high and roast until the peel turns golden brown. Let cool slightly, then mix the juice with 1 teaspoon of honey. Swallow the mixture.
7. Whiten fingernails. Rub a wedge on the surface of your nails.
8. Shine the interior of copper cookware. Sprinkle a lemon wedge with salt, then scrub.
9. Brighten laundry whites. Add 1/2 cup lemon juice to the wash cycle of a normal-size load.
10. Remove soft cheese or other sticky foods from a grater. Rub both sides of the grater with the pulp side of a cut lemon.

Nathaniel was a music student more than 30 years ago at the prestigious Juilliard School when he suffered a breakdown. Today, as he continues to battle the schizophrenia that landed him on skid row, music is one of the few things that inspires and consoles him.



I enjoyed this article a lot.

The Gentleman
Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMm)

Steady & mature. You are The Gentleman.

For anyone looking for an even-keeled, considerate lover, you're their man. You're sophisticated. You know what you want both in a relationship and outside of it. You have a substantial romantic side, and you're experienced enough sexually to handle yourself in that arena, too. Your future relationships will be long-lasting; you're classic "marrying material," a prize in the eyes of many.

It's possible that behind it all, you're a bit of a male slut. Your best friends know that in relationships you're fundamentally sex-driven. You're a safe, reliable guy, who does get laid. In a lot of ways, you're like a well-worn, comfortable pair of socks. Did you ever jack off into one of those? All the time.

Your exact opposite:
The Last Man on Earth

Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
Your ideal mate is NOT a nut-job. She is giving and loving, like you, but also experienced. Avoid the The Battleaxe at all fucking costs.

CONSIDER: The Maid of Honor, someone just like you.

Honeybreath is Here!

We would like to officially announce the signing of Honeybreath to the label! I am very happy to have the chance to work with these amazing musicians, they are all very wonderful people and really have a great sound.

As they are a local label band, we have been attending their shows and providing any support we can. On temporary hiatus, they will be working with us on their debut full length, actually recording here at the house studio. Click 'read' to find out more!

Starting mid-month, Honeybreath will be at the house recording. You can bet their will be great takeout, lots of chatting on the deck between sessions and plenty of behind the scenes video and photos that will be posted to the website. Check out their profile for some older song samples and photos of the band. I have to get back to work doing some organizing and business stuff, so I'll head out and post again in a few days. Hope your Fall is coming along nicely :)
