Feb 26th was my birthday and I just couldn't be happy about it. It's really bad when you get older and literally have nothing because you can't find a job and things starts to get difficulty at home...

 

Damn.

I do wonder what Otake is up to these days (I’m assuming he was called Otake in this band like he was in Avanchick)

Ya know, as a kid, my parents kept us away from the church and religion in general. It wasn't forbidden or anything...it was just something they practice and didn't push onto my siblings and I. My parents were kinda bohemian in the sense that they wanted us to make up our own minds. So, I honestly never thought much of it growing up, but I didn't realize how much of a blessing that was until these past few years. I'm really thankful to have not been indoctrinated into all of that...

 

But it's interesting because as a kid, I grew up hearing and listening to Outkast and Goodie Mob...and although I listened to other hip hop, there was always something special about these 2 groups to me. Not just because I'm from the same city as them and can relate/connect to them on a lot of levels...but their music always managed to "ground" me, even into my adult years as my taste expanded exponentially. Their music just always had a certain gravity to it....and outside of Andre3000 and Cee-Lo, the rest of Outkast and Goodie Mob weren't incredibly lyrical...but they were raw, and their words still had depth and weight to them.

 

...so I recently became aware that one of my favorite members of Goodie Mob subscribes to the same spiritual path that has been revealed to me, and things make a lot more sense now. There are definitely no coincidences... but tot only do I understand more of what his lyrics meant from back in the day, but I also understand why I was so drawn to their music now. The spirit of truth...The spirit of wisdom...these have always been beckoning.

 

Goodie Mob's first album being called "soul food", also makes a lot more sense now too. These guys' music was basically my "church" growing up.

Shit. I just wanna find some pleasure on living again.

 

My dad just had his engagement party. He lives the house next to me. He didn't invite me.

He was out of my life for 26 years. Since I moved next to him (what mother and me didn't know about), I thought he'd be closer. Which he did.

But in the beginning of the year, he decided to engage his girlfriend and since then, seems like I'm not even his son anymore.

He's always telling about how good his fiancee's daughter is awesome and how she can do great things like speak english at early age and how smart she is...

 

Damn. I just feel really bad about being hopeful that he would change. He probably won't even miss me if I die.

Well 2020 is going better than last year, but it looks like I'm going to have to put in some effort to make sure it stays that way.

The job hunt begins again, cuz I can't work at another entry level job for the life of me. I'm simply appalled at the amount of work these poor bastards get dumped on them for essentially being scrubs, and they're contractors ffs. Just fucking glad I cleared 1-2 years of "required" experience (whatever the fuck that has to do for an entry-level position) to land jobs around my desired pay but even then I'm not sure how much Denver's job market has changed and if that will make finding something better harder or not.

 

Ehhhh it's annoying, but at least I get to spend my last month at my current job with full access to MH again lol. Bittersweet.

My anxiety and depression are burning me from the inside out. My Laptop and Ps4 have been stolen, my cell phone is broken and my insurance rates are going up on my car. I tried to smoke but it just makes it worse, my heart feels strange and I feel as though im in a constant state of panic. My wallet and my ssn card are also gone, I'm trying to keep my spirits up but now it's my birthday and my console, pc, wallet, flashdrives are gone and my S10 is broken(It costs $240.00 Dollars to fix and ya boi is unemployed). I honestly want to cuddle with someone and fall asleep on their lap or something, I feel sick.

-DOUBLE POST- :kyo:

 

But as for my unsolicited opinion on politics; I simply say 'let the dead bury the dead.' Voting and partaking in this dog and pony show known as an election has never yielded any progressive or redemptive fruit for ADOS (American Descendants of Slavery), so why would it now? Ain't it called 'insanity' when you keep doing the same thing over and over and getting the same results?

 

This country ain't never been for us, and the salvation of our people does not lie in the hands of a buncha Capitol Hill hoes who don't know, and don't even care to know a single nigga where i'm from.

The idea of creating a retro style neocities to host my stuff because I'm old is dumb but I never said I'm smart anyway

killing two birds w/ one stone... gradually

 

majors sites + sns make me uneasy b/c it's become more about putting people in the spotlight and parasocial stuff makes me really uncomfortable. so I've been using this opportunity to get better at webdev by pretty much blocking everything I don't want to see with scripts. for example, youtube is literally just my channel, subscriptions, my playlists, and nothing else. i'm still getting fomo (fear of missing out) creep where I cheat myself and use a different browser, but I'm getting used to it. 

 

sometimes it bothers me b/c it's like neutering the one thing I have in common w/ most other "young" people, but i'm really having to do this for my own sanity. 

 

it's like using your phone in a crowded room as an introvert, but now everyone is on the phone too so you're doubly as uncomfortable. so i'm basically going recluse².

Noru is doing an infographic of sorts about visual kei, sorting bands, big and small, by subgenre and period. It's a work in progress and it's incredible. It has gotten so big Noru had to divide it in three parts. This is the current version.

 

I put everything together in a single image, you can see it here:

I have a TamperMonkey script that just redirects from youtube.com to my subscriptions page, but you could really just bookmark your subscriptions page or keep it on the startup page.

the shit i have to deal with at home right now is making it hard for me to focus on my work and i really don't want to put low effort on my assignments or fall behind. i think it's time for me to leave the house for good, there's too much negativity around here. i finally have enough saved to live in a house share at least.

Covid-19 just got real. Not gonna lie, this entire shit is super interesting and really fascinating. They way a huge amount of our society reacts to this is just crazy. Was an interesting and sort of surreal day at work too, as I work with kids and our school is closed (for the kids). But next week it'll be something like 15-20 kids, out of 650, as kids whose parents have important jobs to help society go around or kids with special needs are allowed to come, so that's gonna be weird as hell too. But incredibly fascinating.

I didn't think the toilet paper thing was that ubiquitous, as was shown in the media, until I went to Walmart yesterday. It was just hordes of the elderly with completely empty shelves of toilet paper, hand sanitizer, Clorox, and sugar (of all things.) 

 

Curious with how the next three weeks will pan out since most universities, telecom, and IT in my area are going remote. It's often observed after large, sustained events where things change drastically, that residual, permanent changes are produced. Personally, I hope this doesn't lead to certain businesses & companies by default favoring remote work (as an excuse to cut wages) b/c I find it necessary to unplug in a diff. location, imo.

had to do double duty for my group project and now i'm falling behind on my other classes. we're a group of five but only the two of us have been doing most of the work. at least one of them did some work, but the other two have contributed almost nothing. i haven't even started my perspective assignment yet that's due tomorrow night so that means crunch time for me, yay.

Once a year, I end up binging "Ask a Mortician", r/medizzy, and other documentaries relating to the human body (since I was technically doing pre-med at a point in my life.) I get physically ill just doing animal dissections (to the point where I need someone else to clean and cut fish), but I do just fine w/ videos & images. It's morbid, yet fascinating. 

 

Main takeaways from over the years....

  1. Tree pod or natural burial is the way to go. 
  2. Take care of your fucking body while you're young.
