Life is beautiful, yet it is also tragically ugly. This is the way it is with everything: the most beautiful pastry or confection will make you fat, and the ugliest fruit or vegetable is likely to keep you in the best health. Everything is at once beautiful and ugly. Not in a silly 'yin-yang, can't have one without the other' kind of way, but...

I've been thinking a lot recently about meaning in life. I don't think there is 'a meaning,' or perhaps there is, but because of the nuances of our interpretational schemas it would be impossible to identify it specifically and delineate a method of approaching it that everyone could follow. You can, as some have done, try to classify archetypal groups of approaches, and...

In reference to my last post, a few additional notes.

As it turns out, the flour i used in the cookies was not white whole wheat flour, but just plain old white flour. My mom was apparently unaware of what kind of flour she had. I tried it with white whole wheat flour today and they did not turn out so well. So i am...

I went to visit my parents today, and while i was there i decided to try out a cookie recipe. The problem was that i didn't have a particular recipe that i wanted to try, i just wanted particular ingredients in the cookies. So i did want any veteran cook such as myself would do, i made up a recipe. I took an oatmeal...

So i'm back. It was just under a month; what can i say, i don't always appreciate change. So why did i come back? I could say "because i was bored," and i have said that to a few people, and it's true. But the real reason? I missed it. The more commercial feel of the website still bothers me a little...

Well, i think that about does it for me and SG. It's been fun, but it is now time to go. I've had a feeling this was coming, in fact i think it's been here awhile, but it's now official. The new site is what did it. Not the new site on it's own, mind you. There are a lot...

Hey, if you see this, shoot me a message. I don't meet a lot of thoughful/intellectual type folks to hang out with.

Yeah, so i haven't updated in a while. I've been very busy with my thesis, and i have to keep arguing with my thesis advisor over my paper. He wants me to add more "texture" and "depth" to it. Philosophy majors should not ask history professors to advise them for the paper that will determine their ability to graduate. He knows a lot...

10,000 Days is amazing. It's the most emotionally engaging album i've heard in a long time, closer to nema than Lateralus. I've only listened to it once all the way through, but i'll have more to say on it later.

I was thinking about bees today. I'm wondering if they can suffer brain damage. Sometimes they fly into the...

My favorite band is Tool. I think they are probably the most talented band around today. For one, on every stereo system i listen to them on, it sounds different; there's always some little thing that i hadn't noticed before. Two, how many bands can create good, solid epics that work, and do so consistently? Tool has been writing songs ranging from 8...

About a year ago, a few friends of mine made a short film, mostly because they were bored, had an idea from when they were drunk the night before, and one of them owns a camera. I didn't work on this one, but it was made by four guys that i've worked with several times. Now it's on the internet, so if...

It came to me this morning when i was still half awake. It's amazing to me how many ideas seem to come to me in any mental mood but a "normal" one.

My second quarter in college i decided to be a philosophy major, and ever since i have had people asking me "what are you going to do with a philosophy degree?" and...

Hey! I'm glad you breathed some life into that group! Although I have nothing to offer your topic, I enjoyed reading it. I have very little knowledge on philosophy (12th grade Humanities class is all--History of Western Philosophy is on my bookshelf wink ) but it is an interest of mine
salome:
Thanks for your thoughtful post; it was exactly the kind of thing I had been hoping for.

This thesis is not as much fun as i was hoping it would be. I tend to let ideas form in the back of my mind, behind a curtain to which my conscious mind cannot see. It's kind of like independently contracting your thinking to an outside source...that just happens to be inside your head. It's never really let me down, but...
