It’s the little things…
I finally redid the sidebar and title images, and I added a Links page. Whew.
I often mention pages I like, or there are your own personal pages. If I didn’t put them on the links page, please tell me.
My evening was cleverly spent. I’ve been neglecting Mr. TV for a while, since, uh, programming on TV SUCKS, but today since I was bored I decided to flip through the channels. I landed in the Wonderful Channel of 8, one of those channels that has different programming every day. On weekday afternoons, it’s the California Music Channel – like a radio station with music videos… not like MTV which doesn’t even show music videos anymore. Other times it’s a shopping channel. And sometimes, it’s Fuji-TV, a Japanese programming channel! Huway huway!
So believe it or not, I switched to channel 8 and Fuji-TV was on. What caught my attention was a SANRIO DANCE PARTY. Dozens of fat Japanese kids and multiple people in Hello Kitty and Keroppi costumes were dancing to the beat of this guy dressed up as a plastic cow. A 3D model of the same plastic cow guy danced along in the corner of the screen. It ended, and I was time for the next show, which I like to call…
FIVE MEN IN HAMSTER COSTUMES YELLING AT EACH OTHER. These hamster costumes only covered half of their body, so from under the stage, their hands controlled the hamster costume’s hands. This girl quieted all of the men down and started a three-count beat. With each beat, she named a random color (“Midori! Aka! Chai!”) and in the next three beats, one of the Hamster Dudes (TM) had to name three foods that were of those three respective colors. This went on and on until one of the Hamu-Foo’s couldn’t think of any food, and everyone else started yelling at him. By the end of the show, this one guy missed so many food names that he was smashed though a giant plastic cat’s mouth at high speed, with cake frosting smothering his face. My sister even persuaded her friends to take a look at this.
Then it was time for THE BATTLE OF THE ASSISTANT DIRECTORS, which I think was the actual name of the show. The assistant directors (AD) of each show on the network were competing in some sort of “Land of the Lost” elimination game show, where in each round someone fell down from being spun around too much.
In the first round, four contestants were spun around really fast in these chairs while being presented with a Roman or Japanese symbol. When the chairs finally stopped, they had to walk along this catwalk, push a button at the end, and say what the symbol was. But since everyone was dizzy, they all fell off of the catwalk into some weird white powder (Anthrax? Guh-huh-huh) below. Nothing can be more fun than watching dizzy Japanese ADs coated in white powder and trying to pronounce “R.”
The second round was like tug-of-war. With their hands tied behind their backs, two contestants had to wrap a rope around themselves. Whoever wrapped half of the rope first and touched the flag in the middle won. Of course, this too was very hard for all of them, as they still had Anthrax all over themselves and they kept tripping over the rope and landing flat on their faces. Ouch.
The third one was a test of STRENGTH~! and ENDURANCE~! Four contestants were lying on this this giant glass pane, which started to tilt vertically. The weirdos had to stick onto the thing as best they could, trying not to fall into the pit of balloons, angered seabass, and sharks with laser beams on their heads below. I didn’t watch the whole thing, because without warning, the TV station switched to…
THE STUPID CHINESE GUY TALKS ABOUT WHAT HE THINKS IS NEWS! Which I didn’t watch.
Well, the moral of the story is, Japanese TV is the only reason I plug the TV cable into the wall. And also, there are better ways to experience pure idiocy without taking drugs, especially on 4/20.
HAPPY POT/HITLER/COLUMBINE/JUNIOR PROM DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
And seriously… I DON’T do drugs.
Good news for two waiting list peoples, and bad news for everyone.
Good news: I’ve recieved payment from Brian Young and Hellfire104. To the top of the list you go!
Bad news: I’m getting a weighted GPA of 3.15, and God DAMN does that suck. That means that I’m going to have to spend much more time doing actual work. Just a note to Brian and Hellfire104: it will still take less time to make your MIDIs even because of this. Well duh.
And now, back to my endless weekly Japanese homework which is due tomorrow morning… procrastinating isn’t fun…
I finally used my PayPal account to buy something. Since I know they’re perpetually financially strapped, I gave $10 to the always-reliable Blogger in exchange for 8,000 ad appearances on their front page. Keep in mind that 8,000 appearances really isn’t a lot, seeing that there are about that many visits to Blogger in an HOUR (maybe more). But hey, I think it’s a sweet deal. If I only get one click-thru, I’ll still be happy. Blogger is such a great invention, and the people running the thing haven’t sold out by placing any annoying pop-up ads or changed any of their policies ever since they opened the place… I’d give them $10 just for that.
And I’m pretty damn sure now… I have the flu. Almost all of yesterday was spent sleeping. Since the cilia in my nose are completely clobbered, nothing tastes good, therefore I’m really hungry. When I finally tell myself that I’m ready to get up and do something productive, I become really tired and I have to take a nap. And if you must know, +3# |Dr0|\| |)0|\|+ G3+ |\/|3 #4r|). Today is the second full day staying home from school… dammit. I was aiming for perfect attendance this year, just as a personal goal. But I guess it isn’t my fault… what I’m doing is for the best, seeing that I’m coughing radioactive saliva all over the computer screen.
I WILL be better by Pants Day (APRIL 26!!!), fortunately… unless I develop pneumonia or some shit. James, being the kind soul he is, bought tickets for Steve, Felix, him and me to go to a concert that Friday night… and it looks like it will be the BEST CONCERT EVER. Look at that! From what I know, those are the three most popular electronic artists out there, and they’ll be teaming up for an electronica extravaganza. Wow.
My eyeballs feel like they’re going to fall out of their sockets. If you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to take a nap.
For the first time this year, I’m home sick from school. Bryan informs me that almost everyone at the party over the weekend got sick too. Stupid parties. I’m never going to them again.
Damn… I thought I’d have a lot more to say, but all that I’m thinking about right now is my sore throat and runny nose. And how my Motrin is supposed to kick in any time now and make me drowsy.
Oh yeah… it was my dad’s birthday today, and because I was sick, I didn’t get to go out to dinner with him. Instead I stayed home and ate some horrible Wolfgang Puck microwave lasagna which my stepmom accidentally bought for me. That microwave pasta crap is AWFUL. It either burns up and sticks to the plastic case, or doesn’t get cooked properly and crumbles into some sort of pasta powder. AWFUL, I say. Fortunately, I washed it down with Ben and Jerry’s “Everything but the…” an EXCITING new flavor with a whole bunch of assorted stuff in it.
Speaking about food, if I’m feeling well enough tomorrow I’ll be running a booth at my school’s Multicultural Week Food Fair, trying to make some sort of profit from sushi. I originally planned to make the sushi, but yet again, that plan fell short because of my being sick… and also because I’ve never made sushi and would probably suck at it. So I’ll just buy some from the supermarket and arrange it neatly.
I actually did start at school this morning, because my drama class is in the middle of a video unit, so I HAD to be there to act as the grand-uncle in this pseudo home video that we’re making. So after the end of every scene, I nearly coughed my lungs out. Wasn’t a good day today. Also, I didn’t get much MIDI done because after driving myself home around lunchtime, I fell asleep until 6:00.
Bleah. Must get better…

I updated the MIDIs page with a few more FAQs, a Requests section, and a Table of Contents.
And now about my weekend.
Anyone who comments knows about Wacko3629 and Badturkeys, the utter FREAKS that LITTER my comments with RECTANGLES and other WANGO JANGO. They’re pretty cool.
Well, Badturkeys (Adam) invited me over to his house, which is high atop this mountain that I’ve never seen that’s pretty close to my house. It’s like he’s some wise man or something that I have to drive vertically to get to. Yeesh. Wacko3629 (Bryan) was there too, as well as everyone else from Bouncy Fish. To my surprise, Bryan had never seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail, so we watched it. I pigged out on pizza and teal-colored M&M’s. Everyone started dry-humping each other as I left Goatse open on a computer screen for everyone to gape at. Mad, mad funxorz. And yes, there IS footage of me getting personal with a Raiders Foam Sword.
There, are you happy now? I blogged about it. Now my whole family will get mad at me for exposing my personal life on my personal site. Look what you’ve done!
