Fiona and me in the snow

Spanish rap rocks

Today's a Spanish Rap day. I have no idea, I just feel like putting on the Spanish rap channel and rockin out dude. No reason in particular. Oh god, now its Spanish techno, make it stop.

Its 41 degrees outside, not weather at all for sitting outside and reading. Tonight it threatens 28 degrees, definitely not good. I'm considering leaving my short beard which I've neglected this week, grow so it'll give me a bit of warmth for tomorrows short ride on the golf cart to Bell. I suppose it could be worse, I could have to walk all the way to class but that high velocity wind on the face at low temperatures like those forecasted makes me cringe.

I'm finishing things up today, that's my plan. I'd like to get some of the programming assignments out of the way and turn in my lab report, among many other things. Amrud and I are going to meet to get a handle on statics crapola later this evening. Until then, I'll be a busy, antisocial, weirdo in here studying like no one has studied before.

On a side note before I leave, welcome to peaceflower who has chosen to brave my writings. It is interesting that I just realized that she had the choice of me versus another guy on a virtual dating game on a crazy, now slightly defunct internet radio program. She made the right choice for as I'm sure you all know, I am one crazy dude. Those were the days.

I now realize that Brough is now open and I should get some food so I'll have good energy to work rather than the caffeine induced jittery energy I have now. Wish me luck for Brough is an experience that will sober the craziest of beings.

(no subject)

Man I love having a journal. Its easy to find out exactly when something actually ahppened and also realize how much time has actually passed since the beginning of the semester.

Remember when I Got his email from the ACB Radio Guy?. Well, finally, almost 2 months later, I got an email back from the guy. I did the following dastardly deeds on m yBirthday broadcast apparently.
  • Didn't play my sponsor spot (oops)

  • Didn't play my three promo spots in the hour that I had. Granted, I was playing a continuous mix of techno at the time and it would ahve been hard to break that to play some promos.

  • and, I supposedly didn't mention the acbri feedback address which I swear I actually did.

Do these complaints seem petty to you guys? Apparently I can defend my actions either by email or voice communication so I sent a message basically appologizing wor what I did and said I wouldn't do it again. I think I'd be amazed if I lost my volunteer position over these small things.

The funny thing was, I didn't get any bad comments on the content of my show, none.

Honestly, if its going to take a guy 2 months to write back to my several messages on the matter, don't you think it'd be better to try getting listeners to listen to the bad things us broadcasters do and send friendly reminders to follow the agreement, ro must we bog ourselves down with stupid things like these. I swear these people, and the organization, never cease to amaze me. I agree that we must have standards in anything we do: all drivers take driving tests to get their licenses and if you get a ticket the first time you do it its a warning just as an example. Honestly, if they have such an issue with me, I might have more listeners doing just my show on my own server once a week than I have now.

If its one thing I hate in the world, its beaurocracy. I guess tis the Democrat in me, but red tape pisses me out to a total max. So I'll end it here.
