post test

new post

Friday, April 17, 2009


Today I was around my new roommate Jordan - enough to know him better anyway.
He's into graphic design and has excellent taste in music.

I did play my guitar some today.
My post for today will likely be late, as I'm not in a writing mood.

He's got a lot of bands I like - I may get lots of new music at some point in the near future.

Today I picked up my new favorite song.
I've been working on
-Same Old Song and Dance (Aerosmith),
-3's & 7's (Queens of the Stone Age),
but the new one I like is F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X by The Fall of Troy.
It's a remix of another song with a bad name, but there's no real acronym-meaning to the name anyway. I like its lyrics.

I'm learning to play it on my guitar, at least the opening solo part. It is a GH song, of course.
I got the tabs at Ultimate Guitar, but I've modified them to what I've found made more sense.

It reminds me of my last day with Sarah... :(

I don't want to see the day
my words cannot make it safe.
Her heart in my hands - it's too bad - no regrets.

I don't want to see the day
tears are falling on my grave.
This is my one chance...

Back to ID... and a new blog title!

Today has been a long, hard painful traveling day.
I didn't get any sleep last night, I've had little food, and I'm running on empty.

I've had a plane from Atlanta to Denver, from there to Salt Lake City, and I took a shuttle from there to Rexburg. I almost killed myself dragging roughly two hundred pounds of baggage across the country.

It's all over, though, and I'm here.

I worked in Photoshop while I waited for flights, etc.
I finally got a title I like, and I'll put it up as soon as I have internet again.

By the time I post this, it will be up.
I like my blog much better than before.
It was a pain to convert it's original reds and yellows to blues.
I have a better font than any that was available from blogger, so I used it instead.

For those of you with a good eye who've seen it, you'd recognize it as a clip from Fiery Collapse.

Question words and Moving

I'm going to be moving to Idaho soon, so with this blog post I'm beginning to fall behind, as I've been so busy...

Today at iKnow I got a little done - nothing special.

The new-ish words were:

駅 - eki - railway station
おいしい(oishii) - tasty
大きい - ookii - big
男 - otoko - man,male
大人 - otona - adult

I picked a few good ones out of the sentences, though.
野球 - yakyuu - baseball
昼過ぎ - hirusugi - lunch
バラ - rose

要る and 空く (iru and suku) are the two that I've had trouble with of late.
The first is "to need/require", and the latter is "to be empty".
They're so short they feel generic and are hard to assign a way to be remembered

Today I've seen a lot of question/object words, and I need them sorted out.
So I'll make a list.

誰 - dare - who
何 - nan(i) - what
どこ (doko) - where
いつ (itsu) - when
どうして (doushite) - why

ここ (koko) - here
そこ (soko) - there
あそこ (asoko) - over there

この (kono) - this
その (sono) - that
