Gateway to Nothingness

My Ramblings

7/3/11 04:16 am

I hardly ever drank before Nadine. After I left her for cheating on me, I seem to drink quite often. Memorial Day, her birthday, 4th of Ju7ly ( her favorite holiday. I hate her for what she did. And I can't find the part of my soul that is missing. Why did she break me so.

My heart aches. I can't find solace. I thought maybe Regis, but that is gone to me. I am broken and this will be the most truth from me ever. I am out of vodka and now to drown myself in distraction.

I will share this because it is my hidden heart. I normally conceal but deep down I truly feel. There is the thunder. The vodka is wearing off. But I will share this none the less. I am lost no matter what I say.

No WoW tonight.

4/28/10 04:20 pm - Random Tidbits about me

I guess you can say this stemmed from a flash of boredom...

- Lately, when people ask my age, I get it wrong. It's not because I don't know when I was born or can't do the math, my brain just doesn't seem to care about my age that much.

- I have dreams that often like to repeat. I do recall dreams that I've had long since past that were one-shots that later seem to have come true. Others, I see faces and things that I can't place until later in life and recognize.

- There are two good things that I can say came out of my failed marriage. 1st is of course Chewbacca, my pug. Second is she was the driving force that sent me up to Camp Sac with my brother for my first event.

- I enjoy music, movies and some musicals, but I don't like being in crowds. Only been to 1 major music show willingly, a Green Day/Blink-182 Concert some years back. 2 Plays/musicals within the last 15 years that I can recall. I've never really been one to go into NYC to do much.

- I try not to regret things that I may have missed or actions I have taken, with one major exception to that rule currently, my marriage.

- I like to keep an active imagination and visualize things in my head.

- Playing video games are a major part of my life. There will be times that I take a hiatus from some games that get too demanding, but I usually go back after a while. Some examples are Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, World of Warcraft, just to name a few.

- I love movies and some Television series. When I can afford it, I try and keep a decent movie library. But I am always looking for new things to watch be it TV series, anime, and what-have-you.

- Part of my current income is baby-sitting for some friends. The kids are pretty good and I try and get some "classical appreciation" into their lives by making them watch The Snorks and The Smurfs.

- Friends, for me are few and far between. I try to be easy-going and friendly for the most part, but there are few people that see my true darker side. I categorize people I know into various categories. Acquaintances, Kinda-Friends, Friends, True-Friends and Best Friends. People in the first two categories I am willing to help with things like Moving, with some bribery aka food. The next two if I'm not busy and am able to, will help with just about anything without the bribery. The second-to-last group I would be there as soon as possible to help. The last group, would be the one I would be sitting next to should the cops every be called. lol. Once you get to the to Friends or above, it would take near an act of god to break my loyalty towards you.

- I'm a Gemini. As an air sign, I do tend to like to talk, when I get in a talking mood. I also tend to be a devil's advocate on some things. I try and keep an open mind and view from different angles. With that said...

- I know I can be a major dick at times. And sometimes I do it, just because I can.

- I am also prone to talking myself out of things. I often second-guess myself with things usually involving going outside.

- I am very prone to bouts of laziness. But I do enjoy going out and doing things. Not have obligations to go outside usually help start it, but I can overcome it from time to time.

- Yes, I am overweight and know it, so please, don't bring it up.

- I would either love to be immortal, or just be able to travel throughout time to see everything.

I'll end it here. I'm being a bit of a blowhard, aren't I?

10/20/09 08:07 pm - Tis been but awhile

Since my last post, I've lost my job, built a pool, had a lot of time hanging out with friends. Been job hunting a lot with not much luck.

I want to try and go out and try dating again, but yeah, lack of a job doesn't help with that. So yeah, that's about it.

4/14/09 09:41 am - Change in life

I figure I might as well say it now. I have moved out of the apartment with Nadine as we are going to get divorced.

12/17/08 03:56 pm

Here I thought I was a bad employee, the guys that run the warehouse, with whom we share office space with, spend most of their days surfing YouTube. One guy gets on my nerves by singing badly or thumping on the desk, also badly with the music.

My head is killing me. I started getting sick Sunday night on the way home (throat felt scratchy) and have been trying to work off an annoying cold.

I built a Big Wheel for a gift to the daughter of one of the women here in the office.

Not much else going on.

10/27/08 03:10 pm - Thoughts

Last night, while walking dear Chewie, I had some thoughts pop into my head.

A. If the universe is inifinite, it means it must loop back upon itself at some point.
B. Time is relative to how one percieves things.
C. If matter can be neither created nor destroyed, where did it come from before the universe began.
D. If the Universe did begin, it must end.
E. If the Universe ends, where does the matter go?
F. You cannot gain something from nothing and you cannot send something into nothing. (Dividing by Zero will destroy everything apparently)

This is where my thoughts lead me.

The universe dies and is reborn constantly and so rapidly that we never know it. It's what provides the energy for all matter. It's what helps us percieve things. Our consciousness start at random points and flow though this chaos altering when our perceptions change to how we think, interact with events every second. Lingering doubts are spots where two consciousness crossed paths and left lingering thoughts ideas.

9/12/08 09:55 am - Boo

It seems, I no longer have access to Facebook at work.

My days have just gotten longer...

9/11/08 11:36 am - Scratchy

So I'm standing next to my boss at one point yesterday and noticed a strange texture/odor in the air. It turns out that some of the new people moving into my office area found mold behind some sound dampeners and now I think I breathed some in. GREAT...

Watched Flight of the Living Dead last night, my god was it bad, but in that funny way that a person who has seen enough horror movies sees it.

8/26/08 11:30 am - Here

I'm a slacker. I like reading LJ, but never really have anything good to say in it.

I am safely back from Korea. Returned the 12th of August (as I said, I'm a slacker)

Since I've been back, work has been really slow. (as proof of being here)

Nothing new on the horizon yet, but figured I'd say 'Hi'.

6/9/08 12:13 pm - Ramblings

Since my last update, I have cleaned my PC of the virus. But lost my 250Gig HDD.
Watched all of Dexter, which I thought was pretty damn good.

This season of Lost, OMFG was awesome. I can't wait for the next season. Battlestar Galactica has been really good so far also. Some slow points but otherwise very story driven.

Saw Sex and the City with Nadine on opening Weekend. Saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull last weekend. Both movies were really good and I enjoyed them.

For our 1 yr Anniversary, Nadine got me Good Omens. A real riot reading it, but I felt some of my sanity slip out (come on folks, I don't have much left before I think I'll just snap). I got her a book on Monmouth County Murders from various newspapers and Spook.

My birthday was last week and it was a nice quiet day at work and home. Had lots of cake.

Nadine did her first Craft show on Memorial Day weekend.

We're teaching Chewie to swim. Its really cute watching him swim.

Got the two air conditioners out of the attic on Saturday with an "audience".

I seem to have lost my copies of The Adventures of Indiana Jones (The Trilogy pack) and the Back to the Future Trilogy. My mind thinks they got left in Garfield when we moved but Nadine disagrees with me.

Work has been all over the place as usual.

I can't think of anything else to post in here...

5/7/08 10:09 am - Days off

I remember when going to school, days off where lots of fun. I had a day off yesterday and spent most of it trying to get a stupid friggin virus off my system. And while that was going on, figured, hey might as well let it do a full system scan while its at it. 4 hours it ran.

While that was going on, I was copying Dexter Season 2 onto dvds to watch later. Once Dexter is done, there are a few more things that I want to copy/was asked to make copies of. My uncle wants a copy of the HBO special John Adams, which was really friggin good. I want to burn Berserk to dvd, and make a copy for my brother. I've downloaded all of Robotech and would like to put that to dvd. As well as downloading some harder to find movies. I've burned Battle Royale 1&2 to dvd. I'm trying to get a copy of Old Boy and Happiness of the Katakuries.

But thats what I've been up to lately.

4/8/08 06:21 am

I just had a dream where I saw the end of lost.

I know this isn't the real end, but this is what my dream saw.

After a major confrontation between Locke's group and John's group, the island decides to send everyone home. Off in the distance, the birds and other animals start to leave the island getting sucked up into the sky and blows away. The leaves of the trees do as well. Everything has a voice. As the island becomes barren, a black oily substance rises up from the ground. It creates a portal /doorway. The doorway takes everyone to a pub/bar/restaurant in Sydney. No time has passed or more likely, they've gone back in time to a time around the flights' original departure. There is much celebration.

Also as part of that dream, I was in the water surrounding the island. I was underwater at one point and I looking at all these Rays swimming past. Someone said that they needed to fly and that in order to do that they needed speed and the right exit from the water. As I was watching this, a very large ray (bigger than a person) swam past with bony obtrusions coming from next to the head/mouth area. Then these two big fish swam past, kinds that look like they're from prehistoric times. One had no teeth, the other was all teeth. As they swam out of view, I glimpsed behind them kinda following, kind stalking its own prey, a great white shark. It saw me and faded into the depths of the ocean. With my back against a reef, I thought I was safe for the moment. It charged right at me. Just as it was about to bite me, the fish that was all teeth swam in and bit the shark and pretty much had the whole body in its mouth in one shot. It shredded the shark and the other fish came charging in right behind it, gaping mouth gathering all the bits of the Great white that was floating in the water. I then got up and back onto the island.

Things of note, while on the island, I was staying in a large tent. I had Chewie with me. I ran into a man (who looked like Paul Hogan of Crocodile Dundee) who was in a rundown tent but after I suggested some of the repairs needed, turned into a glass type of tent. He had a yorkie. Leonardo DiCaprio or a lookalike was part of Locke's camp. His camp also knew how to use the island's tricks, like attacking from underground. The island's voice made a comment via a moth that the reason it brought everyone there was because there was nothing left for them in the regular world, but because of the human nature and unwilling to accept paradise, it became corrupted and created the nightmare creature. And that their unwillingness to accept the island caused all the pain and suffering it had to leave.

4/4/08 11:42 pm - Home

So I am glad to hear that my brother made it home safe from his tour in Iraq.

Maybe soon things will kick up again in WoW.

Right now he is getting pestered by the rents.

I was just toying around with Adobe PS CS3 and made that handy little icon.

Don't give me no grief about the rainbow. I wanted something in the background.

So I made it home from Alaska safe, then I had to head to Kentucky with the new guy. Got back from that last weekend.

I am now getting tired and will head off to bed.

2/17/08 01:57 pm

I just woke up from a series of dreams.
1. I was in this fancy hotel trying to get a room, and they pulled up every piece of information on me and then some of the wait staff tried to seduce me. While all this is going on, I'm trying to get a job back with my Father's company and because I'm not there in person, they are running background checks and are asking about all these court dates and owed money.
2. I'm hiding in a big house where the owner wants me dead, but my brothers both live there as guests. As I'm getting ready to flee, I'm outside, its night and all these delivery vehicles pull up. A Dominos Pizza guy stops next to my prone form asking for my younger brother and when I say I didn't order a pizza he starts to leave but I tell him that the person who did is inside.
3. Its day now and as I approach home, I see Nadine is moving us again. And I remember that I had some stuff in the house across the street and fly up to the second or third floor, the people inside are not who I expected them to be.

At some point I was looking for people who were murdered by a serial killer or something akin to that.

Now I think I will go get breakfast.

Plus I have no idea what I want to do on my day off.

2/14/08 11:46 pm

I feel oh so much more relaxed now. Took a little dip in the pool and then hopped into the whirlpool spa.

2/14/08 11:05 pm

I saw a moose today while leaving work, just chillin near the on-ramp to the highway. I wasn't able to get a picture of it because there was traffic behind me, but one of these days I'll get a picture of a Moose.

2/13/08 01:48 am - HELP!

I can't stop watching/listening to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End!

Since I've arrived in Alaska, I've watched the movie 2 and Curse of the Black Pearl once, and listened to the soundtrack for about 2 hours earlier in the day at work.

Note to self when I get home, get some more Pirate themed icons.


And don't start anything Nadine!

2/12/08 01:15 am

So I worked 10 hours today and my feet are sore. I can expect more like this all week. I might even have to work on Saturday. I need to see how the week turns out.

I had the pleasure of driving in Alaskan snow. There were maybe 3-4" on the ground. It is expected to snow another 8" tonight.

Just finished the move "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" It was very good and sad towards the end. I needed something a little bouncier to lighten the mood after that, so I put on South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.

Its a fifty-fifty feeling about being in a hotel. It has a pool and breakfast in the morning, and I have the cleaning service to clean up while I'm at work, but I miss the things at home that I can't always travel with, Nadine, Chewie and Little Guy. Pictures help, but its not the same.

my valentine postboxCollapse )

2/9/08 01:05 am

I was |-| this close to throwing my PS2 out a fucking window and then lighting it on fire. I wanted to watch a movie and it wouldn't read the disc. So I tried a different movie because the first was on a burned disc, but that wouldn't play. So I began to think Fuck, its acting like the last one and won't play movies anymore, so I tried a game. Still wouldn't read the fucking disc.

Long story short, I found that in its travels, a small plastic piece broke off inside the PS2 and was preventing the disc brake from lifting and was causing enough friction that it prevented the disc from spinning fast enough to work. So I took the brake out and it works again.

When I was in Hawaii last week, I felt like I should be a Pirate when living on an Island like that. Yar.

2/8/08 10:41 pm

*brain explodes from watching Lost*

Well folks, I'm updating from Icy Cold, Alaska.

Flew in last night, too much traveling in too short a period. First Korea (38hrs round trip) for no more than 4 days, Then Hawaii for a grand total of 3 days (~22hrs round trip) and now Alaska for about two weeks(~9 hrs with a 3hr layover in Seattle).

Granted I love to travel, but there needs to be some reset time for the body and mind. Almost a year ago I did a trip to Germany for 2 months. The only down side with that trip was I missed the last half of Season 3 of Lost.

Its very beautiful and clear up here, but frigid as all heck. And the sun doesn't rise high in the sky, but I was expecting that.

Its going to be a quiet weekend. Maybe I'll jump in the pool at some point.

2/8/08 10:18 pm - Lost

WTF???

I'm watching Lost on ABC.com and they find one of the Polar Bears from the Hydra Stations in the Desert of Tunisia?!?! And one that has been there long enough to be fossilized....

2/6/08 06:06 pm

I was told today that my face is like an onion and that it makes people cry, by my wife.

1/6/08 09:17 pm - A Summary



That kinda sums up my trip.

1/4/08 01:27 am - >.

Well this fucking blows, I gotta go home now.

1/2/08 01:05 am - Favente Fortuna!

Well folks, looks like I'll be seeing you all on the flip side. My limo shows up in about 7 hours and I have just finished packing. There may be a few things in the trunk of my car, but if I don't get them, its no biggie.

I think this will be the longest I've been on a continuous flight ever.


And because Nadine and I spent almost a whole week watching Lost, (Not a good idea if you plan on flying over oceans anytime soon) and if by some odd chance of Fate I end up on The Island, use that coupon to help find me. The internet is huge and I'd be certain that the island's "Others" would be interested in it.


12/6/07 09:11 am

One of my dreams last night was about Heroes.

So it was the second Climatic battle between Sylar and Peter. Sylar has aquired the ability to turn himself into an iceman than can also be liquid. After displaying the ice powers Peter can mimic it. So as they're fighting, Peter kinda flies up over Sylar and starts Freezing and Melting him in his liquid state, which hurts Sylar. Slowly he began to break Sylar down until Sylar couldn't fight anymore.

11/13/07 11:18 am - I'm burning for you

So I enjoyed a nice day off yesterday. Got in some WoW time and then was rocking (until the break of dawn). Last weekend, Nadine aquired Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock for the Wii. We have been rocking it atleast once a day. And staring at the game for too long makes me feel like I'm tripping when I look at anything. My eyes, she can't handle it captain! I finished 41 of 42 songs on easy last night. The one I didn't do was the Slayer-Raining Blood song. I didn't get past 38%

When I came into work this morning, it was walking into a suana. The coolers we guess went out over the weekend at some point and our room feels like its in the 80s or so, and very humid.

Can't wait for lunch.

10/29/07 04:23 pm - Dreams

Now, I know I have had a fair share of weird dreams, but sometimes I think my imagination gets a little over-zealous with what it can come up with.

My dream on saturday into sunday got me a little worked up.

In my dream, my left hand had something akin to a splinter and I being myself was trying to work it out of the skin. As it got closer to the surface, I realized that it was a small washer (i.e nuts and bolts). I've now gotten it to the point of exiting the skin and as it slides out, my hand splits down the thumb side so that it "hindges" along the pinky side and flops open. After that happens, the fleshy parts of my palms pop out from the skin side. This causes me to wake up (also Nadine was propping me to roll over as I have gone to my side and started snoring), but I think my hand was robotic, but I can't visualise it from the dream. I couldn't go back to sleep.

The other weird thing about my dreams, is every now and then I have dreams repeat themselves, and I go "Oh I remember this dream" and then try to change what occurs in it.

10/24/07 04:54 pm - Beyond the veil

Spiritual Enlightenment.

Above the mundane?

Sense of purpose?

A drive to believe in something. There is more than this fleshy mess of a body. I can feel something, something that feels like there should be more. Something else that I cannot percieve.

Some of the things I have read/watched lately make me think. Yes, I understand that it is Fictional, that it is made up to entertain the masses. But some parts ring a bit of something that by our current understanding can't be true, but might be.

Not really a dwelling of the past, I have no regrets or doubts on my actions, but more of thinking towards the future. A what may be if the threshold could ever be breached.

Do we limit ourselves with materials that won't matter later? Watch a movie and it will be in there for a long time. See something awe inspiring and "burn" it into your mind.

There is more to us than we will probably ever know and it saddens me. I feel there is more than what our fleshy eyes see and our brains interept. But I must head out now...

GAH!

This weekend, Nadine and I moved. Down to Highlands, NJ near Sandy Hook so that we can actually see it from our bedroom.

Last week I was trying to get all the services turned on so that when we got settled in, we wouldn't have much to worry about. But the previous tenants look like they just up and left. So I had some issues going around trying to get things turned on. Power is supposedly getting "turned on" this morning, even though we've had power the whole time. And the Cable people are coming in tomorrow to do their thing. But that means, I want to get the TVs to their places, and get the computer up and runing.

10/9/07 03:07 pm - I'm gonna make love to ya woman. Gonna lay ya down by the fire...

Its been a productive weekend. One week left in the current hell-hole apartment.

Next weekend, we're getting a Uhual and then hitting IKEA because Nadine wants a large Klippan Sofa and we need to get the new bed frame.

At some point we also want to get a flat screen LCD tv as so we don't have to lug around a heavy as TV.

9/21/07 12:06 pm - Ode to your Towel

Such an interesting morning.

Woke up at 3:45 or so this morning to the power having gone out.

Then having that "woke up gotta pee" feeling and trying to find candles in the dark, while doing the "gotta pee" dance.

Then figuring, I'm too awake now to go back to sleep, what to do. So I walked Chewie. I noticed the power was out for several blocks around.

Drove to work early, as in I was on the road before 5am. Got to work by 6am and was starting to see the sun rise on the eastern horizon.

The plus side is I get to leave early.

Still waiting to find out where the Yankee Tickets were mailed to. I hope the guy didn't mail them to the PA house. That would suck.

So I'll be out of here in about 2 hours, and ready to head to a Yankee's game.

9/18/07 09:20 am - Won't you be my Hiro

Last night, Nadine and I finished watching the Heroes Season 1.

I was not disappointed and am eagerly waiting for the next season which starts next week.

9/14/07 02:57 pm - Don't shoot the messenger... He may yet be useful

So... Where to begin.

Damn am I lazy when it comes to this. All I do these days, it seems is read my LJ and never post.

So last month, I was all set to go spend my evenings at the shore house when after calling in sick one day, I come back the next to find that our guy in Kansas has been arrested on a Driving while Suspended/Revoked and was in jail. So they needed someone to go out there to replace him. And I was the only one not set to do anything soon, so I was shipped out that day.

Damn that was a long day. I came into work around 8am or so (which means I woke up between 6:30 and 7am. Left work around 2 or 3 got home to pack and then catch my limo to the airport for an 8:30 flight. My flight didn't show up until almost 9pm and I zoned out on the plane and I think we took off closer to 10:30pm. I didn't arrive in Kansas City until 1am. The rental place that I had a reservation in was closed by the time I got to the counter and spent atleast 30mins to get another car. Then I had to drive another 2+ hours to where I would be working at and then I was also supposed to get some things out of the other guys hotel, but the manager was out and I couldn't get to the stuff until around 8am. (BTW it was around 4am at this point and runing on Game Fuel, Chocolate, and some energy drinks). So rather than take a nap for a few hours (I had to go into work that day. My own choice because we had already missed 2 days of work because of that douche) So I stayed up and started watching Naruto Hundo on Cartoon Network (That Saturday they were doing the 100th Episode of Naruto aired on CN and as a marathon were showing all the previous 99 episodes over the course of 3 days.

When 8 rolled by went by the other hotel and got the work stuff out of there and then went to get on post so I can work. I finally get working around 10:30 maybe 11. Get a days worth of work done in a couple of hours and then head back to my hotel. I started passing out around 6pm and decided I should turn the tv off at 8. I woke up about 12 hours later and kept watching Naruto.
After that I felt a lot more to my normal standards.

Kansas as I experienced it was a bit of a bore. Over my entire trip, the most I did there was with Nadine where we saw Halloween, ate some decent BBQ, and saw the Oz Museum . The most fun part was setting off Fireworks in Missouri with her Aunt and Uncles. For those who don't know it is illegal to set off fireworks in any form (without a permit) in the state of NJ.

Most of the trip I missed my Chew and LG. I like cuddling with them and giving them lovins. Which I did last night.

Also, back in June, I ordered the Heroes Season 1 dvd set. Well that came a few days before Nadine came out to visit so she brought it with her. The friday before she was set to leave, I asked if she wanted to watch it. I know its usually not something she would be inclined to watch, but I figure if you atleast watch something from the begining you are more than likely to want to watch it all. Well, she liked it and we watched the first few episodes. I told her that I would try not to watch anymore without her, but I was not in the mood to play World of Warcraft a couple of days and started watching Heroes again. You want to know something that pisses me off alot? When you buy something brand new and its defective. I got to the second episode of disc 4 (Godsend) and it goes bad on me. I was pissed! I went back to Amazon and reported it as defective. They sent a new one out before I even got back from KS. So Nadine and I watched a bit more of it last night.

I gonna try and hang out with my brother and my friend this weekend and either see Dragon Wars (D-Wars) or see Balls of Fury. And get in some Wii time too. I did a little LoZ: TP last night before Heroes, I just completed the third collection of Tears of Light. So now I need to save the Zora Prince and such. I also got Pro status in Wii Bowling. So now I will have a Sparkly ball.

I hope Nadine had fun at Yankee Stadium today.

8/13/07 11:36 am - Boredom is a dangerous thing

Oh man, is time going slow or what?

My eyes, they feel like they are gonna pop out of my sockets and just shrivel up and die.

Had fun this weekend. Had fun putting Chewie in a little wading pool and try and see how long he would stay in it.

Deathly Hallows was an excellent read. I didn't want to put it down, but was asked to.

OOTP was a great movie. So was Transformers and The Simpsons Movie. Can't wait to try and see Stardust, Bourne Ultimatium and maybe a few others.

I must admit, I read livejournal almost daily, but rarely post. My days are mostly boring, I usually just play games or watch movies.

7/6/07 10:12 am - Welcome to Inevitability

Well, I've finally done it. I've taken the plunge I was kinda dreading but knew it was coming, eventually. I got myself an 80GB Black Video Ipod. I was originally gonna call it Troggar because I could not think of a proper name for it. Vader didn't fit I felt. But the other day I found a name that I thought was a bit more appropriate for it, Neltharion. My Ipod is named after the Earth-Warder.

I've already have 10GBs used up. I found a nice program to copy DVDs to a format I can put on the Ipod. So yeah. Its nice and I think with the right Cables I can watch Netharion on the TV. So that might be cool.

Work has been relatively slow lately. It starts out where I have to drive an hour or so to get to the office. Then I kinda just sit here and wait for work to show up. So yeah.

Soon, I will have my dragon mount. Maybe another week but no more than two.

Next week Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix comes out in theater. I am very eager to see it. And by the end of the month, I will have read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Not much going on. Just really bored.

6/13/07 09:22 pm - ZoMbIeS!1!1!

OMFG, you will not believe the day I've been having. It started almost the same as any other day...

It Begins...Collapse )
