Ballroom Dancing

For those of us honest-to-goodness gentlemen who know better. There are few things more manly than leading your lady to the ballroom floor, wearing your best wingtip dance shoes, and leading her in a good old fashioned jive.

Quote
"Our lives have come to resemble those of tourists, wanting the experience, but not wanting to stay long enough to risk experiencing the realities that come with permanence and commitment."

"What's the difference between the music of my generation and today's? Our songs were about Love and Romance, today's music is chiefly about sex; which I might add gets a little boring. -David A. Vigilanti

"But I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly. Because you tread on my dreams." -Yeates

A meaningless random rant. Vitamins and Minerals!

I admit the human body is an amazing thing. To think that this soft, pudgy, burnable, breakable, stink producing, hairy mass made from nothing more than the elements surrounding us is the closest thing to cold fusion the Universe has ever seen. No computer can even compare when it comes to the ability to remember, rationalize and just plain thinking. To think that there are billions of microscopic organisms living inside us with no purpose other than to use our cells to reproduce, thus… Continue

A thought deep in the minds of everyone, everywhere. Love.

I used to keep an interesting journal and I regret somewhat that I've gotten out of the habit. It wasn't your usual "this is what I did today" journal. It was a "Thought" journal. I recommend that everyone keep one. It's very interesting to look back on how I used to percieve things and they way I see things now. Sometimes I'm a completely new person and other times my thoughts are only reconfirmed in my mind. There's one entry in particular I've been thinking a lot about lately. I don't… Continue

I recently recieved my new "Samsung Omnia SCH-i910" cell phone from Verizon. Shweet! After torrenting hundreds of dollars worth of programs (major exaggeration) to practically do an entire conversion into a Windows Mobile based "iPhone" a few thoughs came to me. I am officially obsessed with a small electronic object that has turned me into a radiated, email and mobile web obsessed zombie! (Just as a side note; I'm actually writing this from my phone. I'll fix up the typos on my PC… Continue

A little bit to think about from the linguistics side of the brain. (I LOVE LINGUISTICS!) English speakers and scrabble players everywhere have many words to choose from and on this date shall we all rejoice! Is your stylus poised? It's April 29, 2009. (Plus or minus a few days) That is when the English language is expected to acquire its millionth word. This prediction comes from Global Language Monitor, an organization in Austin,… Continue
