Goddamn firework-shooting vagrants...
After getting back from the community fireworks about an hour and a half ago, I entered my apartment with specific intent of falling asleep. Well, what I didn't know is that the local backwater assholes had the specific intention of having their own firework display! Behind my apartment! Not to mention the fact that the whole neighborhood seems to be out their with them, laughing and cheering them on. Woohoo! Yeah, let's celebrate our being independent by acting like out and out assholes with no regard for our fellow men! Oh wait, that is the American way.

Well...I'm back?
So, Gamingforce. It's been quite a while since I last graced this particular place with my presence. What's it been, for those of you keeping track? I believe a year, perhaps longer. I now have a laptop with wireless internet, hence my being able to make a visit.

The past year has been rife with various different experiences, opportunities, pitfalls, and so on. I'm not completely sure where exactly to begin, but let me just get on with it.

For those of you who remember, I was involved in a church here in Columbus. I've since left for personal reasons - mostly disagreements and conflicts with the leaders and fellow members - and haven't gone back since. I found out that the particular home group that I was active in went under shortly after I stepped out, which wasn't such a huge shock to me like it was to other people. Immaturity and narrow-mindedness basically sum it all up. I was living in a ministry house that had an internet connection and, when I left, I only had my desktop and began living in an apartment by myself, working at the same job for 30+ hours. With rent, utilities, food, and other expenses, I couldn't justify adding another bill for internet on top of it all.

So what do I do with my free time nowadays? The answer to that is read...A lot. I've calculated it up and the total has come to 65 books in the past year. Literature, mostly. Steinbeck, Hemingway, Fitgerald, Bellow, Tolstoy, Paul Auster, and so on. It isn't uncommon for me to spend hours reading at the local coffee shop for hours on end, sometime reading a book start to finish in a span of a few hours.

For a year and a half, I had a very serious girlfriend. It's interesting to note, but we had been good friends for a couple of years before our relationship, and still remain so to this day, despite our mutual reasons for separating. She became pregnant by another guy and, a few weeks after her laying it all out to me one night, we became inseparable. I helped her and stayed beside her all throughout the pregnancy, sat through class after class, emotional ups and downs. I drove her (I've never driven like that in all my life) to the hospital that fateful day and, after a short labor of only four hours, I witnessed one of the most crazy and beautiful moments in this life as she gave birth to a wonderful girl. I don't care what anyone says, it's fucking beautiful and amazing. After that, I helped raise her daughter and am still active in both of their lives. I tell you what, nothing helps a man become such like helping to raise a child. I believe that I've matured and grown more in the past 13 months than in any period of my life.

Since then, as you can imagine, I've had a more active social life, making friends with new people, getting to know more about the people around me. Even that has been hard, because as we all know, the closer you get to people, the more opportunity there is for conflict and, well, drama amongst your various circles of friends.

I'm not sure how active I will come to be here, if at all. I plan to come around often, contribute what I can to discussions if possible, perhaps join #gfchat as a regular once again. But we'll see. For now, I'm content with meandering through now and then, resigning myself to feeling that I've already experienced my own Golden Age here already, yet not quite down and out. So, for now at least, here I am.

ITE: Marty's Vow and Covenant Before GOD
I vow to attend a GFF meet anywhere in or even near fucking Ohio.

After reading people's responses to the recent New England meet, I thought, "Goddamn, I could have driven out there!" At any rate, it's been interesting to read people's entries and see all the pictures.

Mad props to Uzuki who made it impossible for guys like me (who've been around here FOREVER) to whine about it "not being possible to come to the meet".

The heatwave that is SWEEPING ACROSS OHIO!
Christ, it is hot. It was 70 degrees only THREE DAYS AGO and after those three days of awesomeness, Miss Bitch Of A Heatwave decides to swamp us with temperatures in the 80s and 90s. I say 'swamp' because it's not dry heat. No no, this is fucking humidity, my friends.

And what do I have to aid me in my quest against this ancient evil? The mystical A/C window unit? Nope. Only this:



That's right. My only hope at somehow 'beating' this heat is a 1'x1' box fan.

DO YOUR WORST, GOD

New DVDs...And Shoes
Originally, I only went out to buy some new shoes at Famous Footwear. Recently, my Adidas Sambas had been starting to crumble. The inside material was wearing away, causing some, uh, discomfort. And having just gotten paid ($840, fucking woot), I decided it was time to buy some new "kicks". These are what I got:



A bit different than Sambas, but now I can't feel every little thing on the ground when I step on it.

Then it was off to Target (right next-door). I haven't bought any DVDs for a while, as I've cut back a lot on my random DVD purchases. I was planning on getting the second season of "Batman: The Animated Series", but they didn't have it, the bastards. But as I was walking around, there was a rack of DVDs for $10 each, so I swiped the following for thirty dollars altogether.



Yes, I know - not the highest quality in film-making, but for $10 apiece, I figured why not.

Also saw The Da Vinci Code last night. So...What's the big hubbub over, again?

Béla Fleck and the Flecktones Concert
So I landed a chance to see Béla Fleck and the Flecktones for free last night. I have a friend who was an intern at some symphony/arts organization a few years ago, but she still volunteers for their annual Gala. When I say "Gala", I really mean a bunch of millionaire donors walking around a reception hall, trying their damn best to feel as if they're really important - in some way or another.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend asked me if I'd like to go see the Flecktones for free and I was like, "HELLZ YEAH." Thing is, I had to volunteer at the "Gala" beforehand, which, as it turned out, was 45 minutes of opening the door for people, followed by another hour of free food and open-bar extravaganza. Apparently, when I'm around an open bar, I take every opportunity I possibly can to take advantage of it. I got a crash course in that lesson last night. I slammed down every glass of champagne that was offered to me (turned out to be about 6), on top of two bottles of Blue Moon, and three glasses of lovely Pinot Grigio. Then it was off to the concert, with a pretty damn good buzz going on.

The concert itself was amazing. They had an orchestra onstage with them for some parts and they played some alright classical songs. The only tunes from the Flecktones I recognized were "Zona Mona" and "Sunset Road". For their encore song, they did "Hoedown" with the orchestra. It was my first time seeing the Flecktones and I haven't listened to much of them for a couple years, so I had hardly any expectations. But god-damn, it was simply amazing.

Afterward, I got to go backstage and meet all the guys. Now, I've always had a strong disliking for those stereotypical fans who, when they meet a band, go insane with delight. I certainly didn't do that, but it took a lot for me to contain the shit I was feeling. Before I went backstage, I thought through and 'planned' everything I was going to say, how I was going to say it, etc. (Yeah, that's how my mind works.) Well, it all went to shit the moment I met them all, one by one. Especially Victor Wooten. But, I got all their signatures on the back of my program, along with a set-list that one of the stage manager fellas gave to me.



P.S. - Did anyone know that Victor Wooten is like, 5'6" or something? At 6'1", I felt like I towered over that guy.

Well, here's to this being number one out of a probable 10 journal entries.

And that's if Gamingforce doesn't crash in under 2 years. Score.
