What an insane time the past few weeks have been! Man... I've gotten NOTHING done aside from read my emails and work. I've been working so much that I've only managed to read one book, "Stranger in a Strange Land" in all those two weeks. (!!!) And this was the short original version, not the new and longer uncut version. Gah. I'm getting soft in my old age.
Anyhow, for those of you who care (and since Cruise has seen fit NOT to implement a "journal" section in our user pages), I am attempting to start doing something productive with all these reading and writing skills I've developed.
Of course, I'm keeping up with my experiments in music (right now I'm dabbling in KMDFM - wherg! Th|z si |nz4n3 stuffs!), but aside from this mind-altering junk, my current desire is to write reviews and essays.
I'm gearing up for extensive research into L. Ron Hubbard and his non-fiction writings. Scientology and Dianetics will of course involve most of this time, but I hope to get at least an overview of his self-help and educational materials not (directly) related to Scientology.
Oh, and just so everyone knows, I have decided I like "Ultra" - This some screwed up music.
Anyhow, having picked up the new release of "Dianetics - The Modern Science of Mental Health"; an introductory overview of Scientology; and "Clear Body, Clear Mind" which discusses the buildup of toxins inevitable in our modern lifestyle, and how to get rid of them.
My purposes for this research are multifold, but primarily stem from a desire to inform my fellow believers. As a major fan of L. Ron Hubbard, I'm curious as to what he has to say on these matters.
It is painful to see the outright fear and panic that my fellow christians show towards new and strange information. Not that it matters to any of you, but we cannot be effective guides if we react with panic when something new rears it's head.
I also want to write movie and book reviews, but I JUST NEED TO GET SOME DISCIPLINE!!!! Gah. I have to make some money somehow... And to top off all this, I just bought a car this morning, and on the way to a movie earlier this afternoon I blew the transmission... So. Life sucks.
Oh, yeah - And I have not written ANYTHING.

Apart from another long-arse post, you mean? :P
I'll get around to the journals at some point, you impatient so-and-so... :P Some of us are busy too, y'know...

playing morrowind at work doesn't exactly qualify as being busy dude :P

How did you know??
Wait... I haven't played Morrowind, yet. Pfew, I'm safe. ;-þ
I feel with you mate, I don't quite know what's happened here either, but time seems to be quite on the loosing front now.. Must be all those hours of staying up and programming (and playing CS) that's killed it. ;-)
Like the "spaced out" electronic music, eh? (I reckon that's what it is. ;-) ) If that is so I think you'll find "Autechre" really enjoyable, as well as "Apoptygma Berzerk" (not really spaced, but GOOD) and "Aphex Twin". However, knowing my (usual) luck you've already heard of those and own quite a lot of them, right? ;-)

Spaced out? You wish. This stuff is EVIL, hardcore industrial. Think Heavy Metal powered Eurodance. :)
I saw a CD for Apoptygma (I think - the name sounds familiar), but the only one I'm really familiar with is Aphex Twin. I have some of an Autechre netcast, but I've never listened to it all. Definitely worth checking out, though... :)
