saturday night done proper

well not quite proper, but damn close! filled with a lot of great friends, some chivalrous drama, and some great choons at the end. unfortunately i missed the vertigo action, but there’s only so much you can fit into the night. now .. i am up .. early it looks like! for some reason i could not sleep any more than this. it looks gorgeous out; i am going to grab a friend and wander the city. it has been quite worth being in victoria this weekend.. for many reasons..

Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel
Believe, believe in me, believe
Believe that life can change
That you’re not stuck in vain
We’re not the same, we’re different tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight
And you know you’re never sure
But you’re sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
The place where you were born
Believe, believe in me, believe
Believe in the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there’s not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight
We’ll crucify the insincere tonight
We’ll make things right, we’ll feel it all tonight
We’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

after much hmmmin and hawwing i am returning to victoria for the hallowe’en weekend. there are a couple specific things i am returning for (yes i am partly windtalking again) but all are good reasons on their own and combined.. well the choice is obvious. i’ll be on the 7 pm ferry over and be around until Sunday evening.
other stuff:
my haus-warming party, saturday november 6th at 6 PM! if you know me you are STRONGLY URGED not to miss this event. it will be a rewarding experience that you will want to tell all your friends about, making them green with envy. they will ask themselves “why was i not invited?!?”. oh yeah! so cool. pls help me feel welcome in my new place! housewarming gifts are such a cool idea. did i think of that one or did you!? i think we both did at the same time. if you don’t have one or can’t afford one, that’s totally cool. i expect you not to use that as an excuse not to come. no excuses. just come.
there are some other major items in the music world that are on the verge of happening .. until i get confirmation i best not blow my horn though.. i want it all to happen. things are happening that i want to happen. not everything, but a lot of things. and that’s from taking chances.. taking chances..
by the way .. if you are tuned into the fabulous proton radio, the internet’s best progressive house and breaks radio station, you’ll hear some familiar sounds starting at 10:24 PST.
time to get packing for tomorrow! hooray for casual fridays and backpacks.

uPod

here is a bit of tech bot crap:
U2 limited edition iPod
iPod Photo

U2 is my favorite band. But the uPod’s only unique new features are different color plastic (which i like the look of, but it’s just plastic) and reproduced autographs on the back.
$499 is quite a bit for a collectors item.
about the iPod photo..
beautyshot_ipodphoto_041026.jpg
this is a very good idea executed only half-way. you should be able to put all yer movies on the thing since they advertise that you can hook it up to a TV, and obviously the unit can handle audio. of course, how much would the movie industry like that? not so much. potential .. potential.
look at the size of the thumbnails. can you imagine scrolling through 20,000 or even 10,000 photos like that? the good thing is you can use albums that you put together in iPhoto on the computer. one thing is clear — iPod’s are not for input — they’re output only, unless you get a 3rd party accessory or somesuch.
to that end, apple still has not put the line-in port or the microphone-in port on the thing so i wont be buying one. almost better than a minidisc player, however still not quite.
