So today (which was actually about 2 weeks ago I think!) I’m supposed to bare my soul and reveal who I’d like to be for a day.

At the moment (awaiting the onset of winter), I think I’d like to be Devun Walsh.

This would be me.

He’s a pro snowboarder (awesome), Canadian (awesome), plays amateur hockey (awesome) and has unparalleled style (also awesome). Also, his main sponsor is DC and they’re kinda awesome too.

Here’s a video from a couple of years ago:

Other than that, probably a girl so I could play with my boobs all day.


This is me in paradise (aka Ilha Grande)

I want to go back

I’ve been looking forward to this one a fair bit.  I think it could prove kind of interesting as my music taste is all over the show. Like my wife, I don’t think 10 is enough, so I’m doing 20 (according to iTunes, I have 29.3 days worth of music!). Also, I’m doing it from my iTunes as I don’t really keep that much music on my iPhone and it wouldn’t be very representative of me.

Here goes nothing!

  1. Silent Witness & Break – Kontroller
  2. Need for Mirrors – Sick In The Head
  3. Triad – La Calma
  4. Clipse – We Got It For Cheap
  5. Shapeshifter – New Day Come (The Nextmen remix)
  6. Isotone – Waterdragon
  7. Two Fingers – Moth Rhythm
  8. Silkie – The Horizon
  9. Rage Against the Machine – Clear The Lane
  10. Slum Village – Fall In Love (Remix)
  11. Earl Zinger – Heavy Hitter
  12. Busta Rhymes – Who Tryin To Kill You
  13. Peshay – The Nocturnal
  14. Fat Freddy’s Drop – Flashback
  15. Trei – Justify
  16. Ed Rush, Optical & Fierce
  17. Gang Starr – Royalty (feat K-Ci & Jojo)
  18. Blue Sky Black Death – Plunder
  19. Breakage – Blue Mountain
  20. Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Unsurprisingly, a whole heap of Drum & Bass considering that most of iTunes library is also my Serato Scratch Live library. A bit disappointed at the lack of guitar music in there, but I guess most of that is on a backup somewhere.

So I’ve been a bit of a slacker with this, have had a bit of a mad week and didn’t get around to it. Will do my best to catch up ASAP(ish).

So here’s me and my family:

More tomorrow.

Oh dear, that title is terrible.

I actually can’t think of anything that doesn’t come across as really pathetic. Also, there’s nothing I actually care about.

I have no idea how I found out about blogging, probably via an article in an ancient NetGuide magazine.

I started this blog so that I’d have a place to post stuff I’d written for other places on the web. I posted 3 articles a year ago. I also moved from Blogger to WordPress because I prefer the back-end (hehehe) interface here.

Wow. So informative.

Last time I hadn’t fully read what was entailed in this whole 30 Days of Me thing and used up quite a few of my suitable photos with friends. Some of my friends are notably absent from these posts as the only photos I have of us we’re both a touch mong.

Anyway, without further ado, here is a photo of me with some of my high school friends taken last year at Christmas time.

I  very nearly delayed this post until tomorrow, I’m glad I’m writing it now though.

Considering how much I listen to music, this one has been surprisingly tough. I could’ve written pages. However, brevity is important so I’ve just chosen one for each category.

Happy: I’ve had quite a hard time narrowing this one down to one tune, but I think I’ve got it here.

Spacek – Dollar (Produced by J. Dilla)

Sad: I kinda prefer not to have music cluttering my thoughts when I’m sad. But if I’m looking for something to cheer me up, this always does it.

Evidence – Chase The Clouds Away (Produced by Alchemist)

Mad: I knew what this was going to be straight away.

Pantera – Walk

Hyped: Again, there are heaps of tunes that get me hyped. This one, however, has done it every time I hear/play it.

Total Science & S.P.Y. – Gangster

I think those will do. I’d better post this before I change my mind.

I’ve been having a little trouble with this one. For one, I’ve done very little of note in the last few days. For two… well it’s pretty much just the first point.

I guess something I’m kinda proud of is that I’ve got up at 6:40 every morning this week without even hitting snooze.

Considering that I’m usually barely alive before 10, I reckon I’m doing pretty well with that!

So short term goals, for the remainder of this month (I’m going to roll it out to October 30, just to make sure):

  1. Find a permanent job. This one is kinda important. 9-5 would be awesome, but beggars can’t  be choosers apparently.
  2. Lose weight/get fit. Want to be in much better shape by the time snowboard season rolls around. I’m pretty sure this is the exact opposite of most people who lose weight for summer and the beach.
  3. Buy a stereo! Having to listen to music only in my headphones is getting a bit ridiculous.

I think that’ll do for now. Don’t want to be too ambitious.
