Sometimes meeting your idols can be the worst thing

To put my fandom in perspective I arguably got interested in Japanese partly because of Nomiya Maki. Back when I lived in the Bay Area in 93-95, just about the time I starte studying, Live 105 was playing her song with Pizzicato Five, “Twiggy Twiggy” which I instantly liked.

I proceeded to find all the …

If You Had Money?

If you had money what would you do?

Seriously think about it for a moment. If you had say $10 million what would you do? I’m guessing lots of you would buy or pay off your house or sell it and get a new one. Would you quit your job? Would you start a new …

Living out of a Suitcase

Like I mentioned before I got rid of my apartment, sold all my furniture, gave away all of my clothing except for enough to fill a suitcase, and decided to travel indefinitely until I figure out what to do next. Indefinitely could be 1 month or it could be a year or more. Basically I …

Sweating

I’ve sweating a ton! It’s annoying. I don’t know if I’m sick or have some other issue or if I’m just out of shape or if something about the air here in Scandinavia. The weather has been relatively mild. Google says it was 68f/20c today in Stockholm. It was mostly cloudy. It’s been around that …

Conversion to Wordpress, Epic Fail!

Switched to Wordpress

Well, I finally think I got most of my site switched over to WordPress. I’m sure there will be some glitches and I’m sure there is still stuff to do but for the moment it seems to be mostly working.

I looked into a bunch of things before deciding on WordPress and to be honest …

Back to Baltimore

Today I went back to Baltimore. I hadn’t been there in 23 years. I lived there at 19 when I ran away from college with my first girlfriend. I lived there 3 years from 84 to 86 and worked at M.U.S.E. and Microprose.

At the time I didn’t have a camera nor did I have …

Blogging Software

It’s come time for me to do something about my blog because lately I’ve been getting a 15 to 1 comment spam. That means about for every 1 real comment get 15 comments that are spam. The really annoying thing is they are typed by live people who attempt to leave a comment that sounds …

What I’ve been working on

If you want to know what I’ve been working on, see this blog entry in the other part of my website.…

Googling my life away

As of May 5th I started a job at Google in Mountain View. I can’t say what I am working on as it is still top secret but I can say it REALLY REALLY wanted to work on it which is why I took the job.

What I can do is mention some things about …
