From now on... [Apr. 25th, 2006|02:15 pm]

Obviously, I don't take well to the blog thing. So, if anyone still checks this from time to time, bookmark www.deadliving.com. That'll be where I put up stuff from now on. It's not a blog, but it'll be more of a fiction / essays / whatever site. Artwork, maybe even a comic, too, if I ever get the time (I'm getting back into drawing, photography, all that gay stuff!).

Anyway, right now it's just one page, and in need of a serious design. I used freeway express for it, and while that allowed me to place things where I wanted, it did something stoopid to the text and I only have it for 30 more days anyway. I need to re-learn how to use a web-authoring program, but I can't find one that I get along with. I have dreamweaver, but my copy is screwed up or something, and NVU works just as well for that, and is free (open-source). But they both seem overly complicated, and I hate dealing with tables. There is no frontpage for mac.

I really liked something called fusion (for PC), I think, not cold fusion, but it was something like that--anyway, it had a grid to place shit wherever you wanted, but it was closer to a dreamweaver or NVU than this freeway program, which is completely a layout / design program (you can't edit HTML at all). I don't know, maybe I just need a good tutorial. I tried using CSS templates, but I always want to mod them so much that I might as well build a site from scratch.

Right, though, the new site is www.deadliving.com

Also, I'll have a personal site, more of a resume thing, www.dchunter.com , up soon.

Both are hosted through www.nearlyfreespeech.net. I think it's the cheapest option for websites that won't get a lot of traffic.

Later.

You scored as Kantianism. Your life is guided by the ethical model of Kantianism: You seek to have consistent laws rule your actions, and your will is directed by reason.





"I do not, therefore, need any penetrating acuteness to see what I have to do in order that my volition be morally good. Inexperienced in the course of the world, incapable of being prepared for whatever might come to pass in it, I ask myself only: can you also will that your maxim become a universal law?"


--Immanuel Kant

Yeah, so, I'm moving home here soon. [Mar. 29th, 2005|03:47 am]

Is this not what I wanted to avoid? So, then, why'd I get a degree in English... oh, and that other one, even more useless, philosophy.

Stat I read today from '95: Only 16% of full-time freelance writers make more than $30,000 a year.

Why didn't I become a business major?

Have to finish a mail-away class through IU, can't get my degrees till then. Can't finish this class till summer cause I'm way too busy.

Progress, my glbt publication baby, soon to be birthed. Good people have given good dedication and, if I may say, we're gonna blow the feeble competition away. Not that there's any money in it anyway, but still, we're gonna show some lazy fuckers (or incompetent, perhaps) how a local gay zine should look.

Grammatically correct is one way we'll differ. Yeah, so, I'm not up against a lot.

Going to ICPA awards this weekend (for stu papers), that should be interesting. Sharing a hotel room with the male arts editor. Yet I'M the gay one. Maybe he'll come on through to the other side.

Nah, he's not my type anyway, too skinny. Skinny guys I break.

Friend expressed concern over a breakout of HIV here in the Fort. I told him to go get tested, but he says he's too scared too. He'd rather not know.

How can you explain to someone the idiocy of that argument? How can you convey the unethical context of him sleeping with other guys, sometimes without protection, and not knowing?

Sometimes it isn't so bad to be a virgin, sometimes it's not so bad to be caught up in all that stupid sex stuff. Just creates issues. HOWEVER, if one more sexual deviant (okay, not deviant, but just active) person tells me "Oh, yeah, man, it's a good thing that you're a virgin, you should wait for that one person, I wish I had. Hey--can I use your computer to get on gay.com?" I'll belch and blow it in their face.

For those uninitiated, gay.com is code for "Can I go looking for sex?"

And yes, I understand the correlation between public belching and lack of sex. I just hate gas more than I like potential penis (not like that comes around often anyway). I'm polite when I'm not just around friends...

Yeah, BTW, I'm still a back-up plan for most people (excepting a few). Also, still a proximity-drop, a friendship casualty by acquaintance. Can't tell which one pisses me off more. Need to start a singles group... but then they'd just start hooking up with each other and problem begins again. Need to join a convent.

And yet again I've degenerated into bitching on my live-journal. Oh well, it's what most of my friends pages have been on here lately, anyway.

Planning a trip for summer. Brother might come. Ohio might be destination. Old friends might be high points. Sentence fragments are fun!

Later.

[Listening to |Track 06-Now it's beck track 6. Bombholes.]

Y'all legal peeps will know the track in a week or two.

Hell yes.

"I like your base."

"Please enjoy."

I will.

Nothing like a small party. And old cartoons, wtf?? I was thinking about getting an ear pierced, but with being done with the extra schooling soon, I thought it best to wait and get an actual job first. Might work with Evan Byhe (don't know spelling, bad) on an internship thing. Might move to san fran, don't know.

Here's me and a buddy.

Later.

Actually am right now. Drunk. It's been awhile. With a less than colleger person, too, amongst others. Just watched Napolean, too. That movie is too trendy, GOD, but it's still too funny.

Later All.

Captain Obvious: Many people use their livejournal for drama and bitching. I do it too. Why?

Because it's fun, public, and untouchable by others!

[Listening to |Weak And Powerless ("Tilling My Grave" Mix)]

Why do I always think it's a good idea when great bands make techno remix albums of their songs?

aMotion from a perfect circle is, thusfar, rather boring. I've HEARD these songs already, and I liked the originals better.
The only cool thing is the occasional isolation of the vocals.

And eMotive... I've only listened to two songs, but that imagine cover was terrible. Lennon was not meant to be goth! BLAH! Play the piano in the right key!

It sorta sounds like if tool redid mary had a little lamb and was trying to be serious about it. Eww.

With the exception of like two songs, the bush techno album was the same. Crap!

Hmm... it seems there might be one good remix of the hollow on here, probably because it sounds like and acoustic violin piano version. I think some chic is singing. Cool.

Okay, but robots still can't make good music.

[Listening to |Track 03- [new] Beck. Yeah it's good, and I'm naughty.]

It's done! It's done! It's DONE.

www.gayfortwayne.com

First foray into web design in years. First time with dreamweaver, elements of flash, etc. Fun stuff.

Need to change some of the pictures, they're less quality.

Can't wait to get time to work on a site of my own, but that's months away. Want to really learn flash and fireworks before I try that, cuz I want my site to look fresh & dope.

And have little velociraptors that run in place.

GOD Beck is awesome, I am so going to buy this CD when it comes out. Moby, I'll be more cautious with, because his last CD got a little annoying after awhile. It was the same idea, gospel or him over mellow beats, over and over again. One trick pony! Still, they've said (and by they I mean amazon) that this new one drops the gospel and gets back to some of the more rave-like stuff. We'll see.

Rented Bowie's "Heathen" from the library, it's good. And you can legally copy it! Like, because you can copy it and use it later for the rental period you took it out for, that you might not of taken advantage of when you had it originally, or something like that. I didn't quite understand when it was explained to me.

Next task: send out resumes, finish Shakespeare course (DAMN YOU TIME!), finish Progress. Yippee. oh, and now I gotta finish a progress website.

More about that later.

Check this out. Yeah, I was there, yeah, I took the picture. I took 193 pictures. Crazy. Now, I'm going to go to bed, because no one should ever have to get up at 6am, during spring break, to spend a day in the snow and the cold to fight for basic human rights.

Oh, yeah, and for whatever reasons, the protestants and Eric Fuck Miller were the ones allowed inside the capitol for the entire protest. Hmph. Well, we were better at chanting.



COLD.

This Rejected Life [Mar. 4th, 2005|04:10 am]

[Listening to |Dry The Rain ~The Beta Band]



Just thought I'd post a picture of my first rejection letter... ever. Well, there was that time I didn't get the telemarketing job because of my availability--but that might've been for the better.

This was from when I applied to the NPR program This American Life. After I applied, I scoured the net for someone else who had--and came to that this guy who'd taken classes HaRvArD and designed crazy web sites and looked like a beach bum... and he didn't even get it. Now, I thought this guy sounded like an ass in his resume and questionnaire, but still... HaRvArD.

I'm just a guy from iPfW. Naturally, then, I didn't get the internship of, well, of one of my dreams. Radio just SOUNDED cool... get it? okay, bad joke, is that even a joke?

Can't say I'm surprised at the reject, it was a long shot to begin with. No experience in radio, application was kind of rushed, didn't take enough time reading through what made for a good radio show on their program.

Hell, I'm not sure I'm ready to leave the fort just yet.

Then again, BenV wants to "get the hell out of dodge" after we graduate.

We'll see.

And yes, I'm trying to post again... Give 'er another go.

BTW that's a new digital camera in action, above.
