sliding into retirement.... [Jan. 30th, 2006|06:02 pm]
[mood |lazylazy]

Fourth year is almost done. As a result, I find myself having a lot of lazy days. Everyone has them sometimes, right. It's natural. They just seem to be a lot more frequent now. It's like, "I've practically got eh degree, why not cruise to the end?" That's obvisouly a pretty uncool attitude, but it's where I'm at right now and I'm pretty happy about it. If only I could just jump from undergraduate studies to retirement. Ah, that would be the life. Jazz. Tomorrow. Gusto. Be there. We who cannot play must never forget to watch.

[mood |crappycrappy]

Wow, one month later. What a month. Don't wanna talk about it. Don't remember a lot of it. Way too much study. Oh well, a few more months and it'll all just a be a bad academic memory. Then the real world. Yay. Anyways, I'm not dead..........so yeah.

updates? [Dec. 14th, 2005|03:35 pm]

[music |Smashing Pumpkins- Bullet Train to Osaka]

so yeah, I decided to update this thing since I never do anymore. I read everyone else's, I just can't be bothered with mine. It's almost 4pm and I'm still in my pjs and havent' showered. At least I've studied more or less all day. Irish History is on Friday at 9. I think I'll probably pass but reviewing the exam format filled me with some dread. One essay will invovle both readings and lecture. I havent' really done the readings since mid-term. Luckily, I have a friend who didn't attend the lectures after teh midterm (or before) and i leant him my notes. Hopefully he can fill me in on readings. Hopefully.

So I'll be home somteime Friday afternoon. Aunt from England is coming for a few days so I may not be too mobile for a while, but there must be pool and other shenanigans during the break. Hopefully when Jamie's is in the 'bourg we can find some time to play pool with whoever's about providing he isn't too busy. Fonz, no muppets other than the bitter old men could have been acceptable for you. I'm glad it turned out that way.

must study more

here's a time killing idea [Nov. 10th, 2005|11:54 am]
[mood |excitedexcited]
[music |sweet, sweet silence]

So yeah, I don't wanna write essays. For no apparent reason this got me to thinking about a speech given by some celebrity alumni on the first day of frosh week (he was in Ed and now I think it's him in those annoying CIBC commercials), he said look back at what you listened to in first year at the end of university. I can't remember why he said it.I'm not too worried. Only first year won't kill enough time, so I'm gonna do all 4. Albums only. This was also sparked by Karen's contentious albums list. What's the soundtrack to your academic dementia? Post in comments here.

Deconstructing Sesame Street [Nov. 8th, 2005|11:11 pm]
[mood |confusedconfused]
[music |The Toadies- Possum Kingdom]

I had the most random experience today and I feel it was worth posting about. I was half an hour late for Hebrew Bible because I got distracted talking to a certain professor (who shall remain nameless) about deconstructionism, Blake and it's relation to Sesame Street. We even watched some Sesame Street on his computer. It was rad in the extreme. I plan on visiting this man in his office more often. I also plan on playing more guitar and becoming even more of a theory geek on the drums. Chance of inflicting sonic vengeance on the Queen's populace with Devon. Excited beyond all expression just to jam with him again. Messing about with crazy guitar playin' Mike on Thursday. Eventually jamming with Szpak. So much music. So many papers. Fucking papers. Now I have to choose between Blake and Sesame Street. As most of you that read this (or both of you as the case may be) know, the Muppets in general and Blake's poetry/art are two fo teh most important things in my life. No,I'm not being ironic. This is like choosing between my children. Perhaps I could work both in to the paper? Yes, that might be a plan. Oh well, off to not fail life (except I will). Oh yeah, I also found out where the term Toadie came from (18th Century term Toad eater, or basically a yes man or woman). I've also found that Nietzche is having a perverse influence on my academic life recently. I thought I hated him. I guess not. He's actually pretty bitter and hilarious. I think anyway. I swear I'm done now.

Thanksgiving [Oct. 5th, 2005|01:32 pm]
[mood |cynicalcynical]
[music |hum of computers in Watson Hall computer lab]

Thanksgiving is this weekend. Poolhall junkies better be coming home. I can't really play on Saturday but Friday or Sunday works out just fine. Anyone interested? Well, I know everyone's interested (who wouldn't be interested in going to Oddballs?) but can anyone make it? Morto, suck it up and come home. Fonz, when are you making your appearance? Devon, do you want to play both Friday and Sunday? Ah, so many questions. Must eat lunch before inflicting my bizarre and totally haphhazard readings of James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as A Young Man on my 369 seminar. My goal is to somehow use the phrase "What Joyce was really trying to convey through Stephen's actions at this jucture was the concept of suck my balls". Formalists and New Critics may argue with my invocation of intentionality, but I respond with the above! Hockey starts tonight but homework is important. Should i go to a bar? Should I see if cbc carries it. Prehaps I can listen on the radio. That's the most likely solution.

Sign, Signifier,Mental Representation [Sep. 29th, 2005|04:41 pm]

[music |Into My Arms- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds]

or something like that. Nobody pays much attention to it in modern literary criticism anymore, but I'd just like to say that structuralism is the shit. It makes my brain hurt, but probably in a good way. Not much to report. No musical for James this year, but the slightly soul-sucking orchestra looks like it's looming on the horizon. Other than that, I'm desperate to play the drum sin some creative form. A friend of a friend suggested joining his crazy covers collective, but I kind of want something... more......psychotic? Devon, I'm looking in your direction. We don't have much time left to be young and obnoxious before we have to grow up and get a job and such.
On a similar note, I'm contemplating having the first hippie club meeting this sunday after Ciara's Start your Year with Art business. This may not jive with scheduling though. Either way, we need to get it started soon or we won't be able to listen to music communally. What a ridiculous statement (insert my riotous and inappropriate laughter here). Oh yeah, Jazz night is now Tuesdays at Gusto's. Smae band as before, nicer locale. I don't think they check ID either as long as you aren't drinking, so if you have underage friends that would normally be deterred by a bar, bring them along. I've had to correct my spelling too many times already in this entry for it to go on any longer. Maybe I'll post again sometime
