At the moment, nothing seems worse than the ‘caged’ feeling one gets from being mind-numbingly bored in a place they do not want to be. Waiting rooms, work, etc… whenever we are places we do not wish to be for extended amounts of time, we get this sot of ‘caged’ animal stress, I hate that… I’ve been bored at work all day and it’s driving me crazy. luckily for me, I am within the final hour of my shift so things should turn better soon…
I decided to watch Star Trek for the first time ever today. I got inspired and doodled a neat version of Spock.
I have decided that I want to learn how to do more of the things I am interested in. I have a laundry list of things that I want to do and that I want to learn about…
- I want to learn how to make basic electronics and learn more about wiring. I have had a basic rudimentary knowledge of wiring but I want to learn more about circuitry and how to create robotics. I want to be able to tear things apart and build them new, I want to learn how to wire minor lights, speakers, diodes, etc… I want to learn how to build computers and robotics.
- I want revisit web coding. I learned how to design websites again, I feel I may be very good at it.
- I decided to start watching Star Trek. I saw they had the original Series on Netflix so I thought I would give it a whirl. I love the special effects that are used in the vintage program. It’s a science fiction program, and I do have a bit of a penchant toward Sci-Fi, so I have a feeling I may like it.
- I think once I finish with Star Trek, I may switch to Classic Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, classic Batman, maybe classic Super Man… I haven’t decided.
- I want to see if I can’t find classic shows such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, etc… I love vintage cartoons. I wonder if they still have the Boomerang channel and if I can get it on my current TV provider…
I realize how much of a giant nerd I sound like right now…
Why are we as a society so worried about other people?
We worry about what other people buy, we worry about what other people consume, we worry about people’s brand loyalty like it is some sort of defining thing in a person’s life. We chastise others for drinking/eating the ‘wrong’ items, we chastise them for liking the ‘wrong’ team, we chastise them for enjoying the ‘wrong’ movies… who cares?
If someone is doing something, that is NOT directly involving you, why in the hell do you care? Why do we care so much about influencing the choices of others as if our own choices and preferences are better than the choices made by other people? What you put in your own body, what you watch, what you consume… as long as you aren’t hurting anyone, who cares?
- This week was mildly stressful and very busy at work. I definitely can say I am happy it’s Friday.
- There has been a bad flu bug going around the office and I fear I may have contracted it again. I am sporting mild symptoms that have slowly been building with intensity.
- I have come to realize that I adapt really well. Not wanting to move for the second time in the last year,Ms.Katie and I decided that, if our current place was on the market at the time our lease was up, we would make an offer on the house. Since that wonderful conversation, I have done nothing but think of the various ways I can remodel the home to make it into something that would be the best for everyone involved. Quite honestly it has made me realize that no matter what is thrown at me, I adapt to make things work. Sure the property isn’t the biggest, the house needs fixed up quite a bit, etc… but I see massive potential. I see the ability to turn the small home into something that will net a profit if sold AND will be something to be proud of once it is all said and done…
- I like designing and building. Whether it is graphic design, interior design, LEGOs, etc… I like creating.
- I hope everyone had a wonderful week and hope that things are going well for my lovely followers. I wish everyone a peaceful evening and good vibes.
Watching Moulin Rouge! and I got to thinking…
If they ever decide to do a Star Wars Musical and cast Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan for the initial run, I would dig that.
If you’re that into the past and the story lines, why not re-release the original? Studios should embrace the old and have ‘classics’ screenings where they release an old classic on a limited run in theaters (one month). It can be called the Legacy Series. Add on to the movie an extra that talk’s about the movie’s first run, cultural impact, etc… It would get people to go out to the movies more, because they get to see great films they haven’t seen in a while on the big screen, or a classic they never knew about, and it would educate the public on history. Think of how well Star Wars did during their re-releases in the 90s; they did absolutely fantastic.
In a perfect world, movies and television would have never changed. I feel as if ever since the writer’s strike of 2007-08 that the quality of film and television programming has decreased greatly. No greater example of this can be seen in the number of remakes and unoriginal ideas that have come since 2008. While there have been good movies since the strike, the number of quality movies being released has greatly diminished. There used to be multiple ‘blockbusters’ every summer, all vying for the chance to hold title of Movie of the Summer; Original Movies with fantastic stories; movies worth going to the theater for. I used to be a huge movie buff, but the quality and number of movies being released every year really turned me away. I may occasionally see a film, if people are talking about it enough, to see what the hype is about; other than that I haven’t cared as much.
I would definitely be more apt to seeing that instead of another remake that does injustice to the film preceding it.
Boss #Vader Says “the #DeathStar plans are not in the main computer… They’re on this memory device. How do I retrieve them?” Boss Vader isn’t very good with computers.
My new Magic-Flight Launch Box. It’s a walnut wood with a gorgeous Carnelian, orange-red semiprecious stone, inlaid in the wood. It’s part of their ‘Art Cart’ artistic series. This one was titled ‘Simplicity’. Shortly after I took the picture I took flight and I must say it did not disappoint.
My gorgeous Magic-Flight Launch Box arrived in the mail today. The only thing that saddens me about it all is that I have to wait four hours for the batteries to charge before I can ‘take off’.
I’ll post pictures of this beauty later.
What originally started out on a quest to find a rectangular Darth Vader tin, has morphed into the consolidation of over 10 boxes and the throwing out of items I have no need for anymore. Not only that but I have been cleaning all day.
This piqued interest in knowing where the tin got to was the catalyst that started it all. Which is both a good thing and a bad thing, because now I still have no clue where the tin got to.
