No, We are not living in a Simulation

I’d heard about the “Maybe we’re living in a Simulation” argument before but I had never read the details. If I understand correctly it’s basically a “follow the logic” idea. Simulations get better all the time and as such eventually there will be universe simulators that can simulate an entire universe. Once you can do […]

Getting Phished

I just got phished. I received a suspicious PDF in email. It had a name that made it sound like something I might personally be interested in from someone I met about a year ago. No idea if that was luck or by design. Even scarier if it was by design.

Can’t Figure Out Where to Be

I can’t **cking decide where to go/be. I feel so stupid to have this freedom and so unable to use it effectively. I’m in Singapore at the moment. In 6 days I’m homeless again meaning I have no place to stay unless I make plans and pick a place! I’ve thought about doing a vacation […]

Cause I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

There’s probably a post exactly like this a few weeks or month from before but hey, it’s what’s on my mind. I write this stuff more for myself to think out loud although I’d love to hear wise and sage advice or opinions if you have any. I’m un-glued from a “normal” life (whatever that […]

Feeling out of place in a Record Store

The other day my sister, nephew, and I were touring around LA by subway. We decided to go check out Amoeba records which is one of the largest record/cd stores left in the USA. I’d been before but it’s been years.

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 […]

Stupid Me Yet Again

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCKING FUCK FUCK! Yea, I’m upset and I know it’s stupid. I met a girl last year way out of my league. I know I shouldn’t say that but it’s a shortcut for she’s super hot and knows it and is probably used to a certain type of manly guy that […]

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 […]


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 […]
