I was sifting through my music and came across these old favorites, ended up youtubing them. Reminded me of a time etched in memory.


We passed upon the stairs, Cobain at mtv unplugged

Jakob Dylan

BOC live, plenty of live improvisation on the signature reaper riff, around 2:45

s&m one, Hetfield at his snarling best, and notice how the band lines up for the signature one grunge (around 5:07)

november rain

bang bang

but if you could heal a broken heart
wouldnt time be out to charm you

Meet the Dumbest people in your corporation

The HR guys, they are driving me nuts. And they love meetings, they schedule milestone meetings, trademark meetings, celebratory meetings, meetings to discuss meetings, redundant strat meetings, and this when research is working on air-tight deadline mode, oh and we had a meeting to discuss our upcoming journal publications as well !!! ... dumb fuckheads.

A certain Professor at Stanford said it best "Let Engineers and Scientists run the country instead of Lawyers, MBAs and Economists." (v 2.1)

HR folks: please get aids and die ASAP

Playing the Coushatta 1k

I dont usually like playing in small-buyin casino tournaments (primarily because of the mind-boggling testicularly retarded slowness of live poker vs online poker), but a friend convinced me to take this trip with him, later this month, to Louisiana for the Coushatta Casino 1k buy-in main event. Hopefully the event attracts atleast 300 players (so that 1st is atleast 50k to make the trip and staying in hotels for 4 days worthwhile, FYI: I hate travelling), but given the current economy that might be a stretch.

Anyway 300 is the magic number, if they get less than 300 players I'm out, not worth my time by any stretch.

Anyhoo today was bloody sunday of online poker, and somehow I convinced myself to play some sunday special donkament tourneys : Results : 0/11. LOL Donkaments.
