Computer Issues

Okay so I've been away for a couple days, reason being my computer took a small turn for the worse. The processor was having over heating issue, so after a small period of worry, I investigated further and found it needed new thermal grease, so I ordered some from tigerdirect , and few days and 20 dollars later my system is running again, seemingly fine. I guess time will be the real test.

For those of you wondering the specs on my computer, here they are:
Intel Core i7 processor
Asus P6T Motherboard
1tb Hitachi HDD
Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT graphics card (a little lacking but gets the job done)

That covers the essentials, any further questions just ask, and yes I built this one myself.

Good News! For me anyway.

Great news, so as you may or may not know, I am a Judoka, which means I practice Judo, and have been doing so for a little over a year. Anyway the good news is I've finally earned my yellow belt, after working my ass off for however long. For those of you who don't know in order the ranks go: White, Yellow, Orange, Green, brown, then Black. So I'm not exactly high ranking yet, but at least its one step forward, right? 

I plan on posting some videos from my Judo class on here at some point in time, so until then I suggest youtube if you wanna learn a little more about what Judo is.

Ronald Jenkees.

Lately I've been listening to a lot of Ronald Jenkees music, I find that he's one of the best underground artists out there, and I have to thank Pandora for introducing me to his wonderful music, so please check him out, and hopefully you enjoy his beats as much as I do.

Food, Inc.

Today I watched a film that thoroughly intrigued me. It was called "Food, Inc." and I found the information gathered from it to be both stunning and absolutely appalling. Essentially every thing we eat come from a small handful of corporations that have the market cornered, and the conditions of the animals we devour are generally very poor, and the quality of the food is directly affected by that. If you have a strong constitution and Netflix, or something to that effect I highly suggest checking this film out. You may be surprised at how little you really know about your food and where it comes from.

Socialist Capitalism > All other forms of government

"Yes, i know, it seems contradicting. since socialism is the combination of all people working together and capitalism is "solidarity and singularity". But, to have socialist ideals of supplying the entire population with the basics; food, water, shelter, clothing, transportation, heat, etc. with the capitalism want for material possessions. we would have the perfect society. All basic needs are supplied to the individual and then they make an O.K. wage (around like 500 a month) and that would be pure spending money. People could work harder or do more if they wanted more material possessions but we would not have starving people, or homeless people. We would have a single nation thriving and surviving thanks to their fellow man. The beginnings of a world community and international peace." - Pillo

This is an idea which a friend of mine put into words, and I couldn't agree more with it. So I thought I'd share it.

A Brief Introduction

I am a pseudo-intellectual, who feels as though his view on life and society matters. However, I am aware that anything I do, will have little impact on anyone. That being said, I will write about what I think, what I feel, and some of the random things I do on a daily or weekly basis. I will also review movies, games, and music. If you don't agree with my opinions, please feel free to offer a concise, logical argument, rather than trolling.

I enjoy music, I have a broad taste in music, but my favorite artist is Maynard James Keenan. Tool, A Perfect Circle, and recently Puscifer, are among my favorite groups all of which are fronted by Maynard. Which makes me kind of a fan boy, but I think he's an amazing writer, and great singer.

Apart from Maynard James Keenan, other personal heroes include, Henry Rollins, and George Carlin. One could infer from my choice in heroes that I am a liberal atheist who hates the government. Well, if you inferred that, you are correct. I am fairly liberal, and I am an atheist. It is not my desire to attack anyone on a personal level though, unless they bring it upon themselves.

I have little to no desire to be in a relationship, nor do I want children. I feel as though these elements hold people back, and stop progression. Knowledge without mileage is bullshit, so I'd like to travel and experience new things. I dislike employment, because it makes me feel trapped, and enslaved. As though the corporation owns me. I dislike platitudes, and I try my hardest to break them down, usually with flawed logic, which needs to be practiced and honed. I think that trying is never failing, and all I can do is try with the hope of some day succeeding.

This is supposed to be a brief introduction so lets wrap this up. My writing style will change randomly though out posts. Most of what you read here will come back in later posts, for it is part of what drives me as an individual. I wish you Peace, Love & Understanding.
