Waking Tired

It has got to be considered strange when you close your eyes, dream and wake more tired than when you went to bed the night before… maybe I’m slipping from sanity.

My dreams are linier, coherent, mentally and physically taxing. It’s like I’m living another life… it has happened before and to be honest, stopped when I told someone about the dreams, I was kind of hoping this time it would be the same… no luck yet… but then the other dreams were more scary (not monsters and stuff… real world scary) than anything else. Do you want a synopsis of them?

It will come shortly… I doubt the earlier dreams and the new ones are unrelated… and this I worry about the most.

Kyle XY – ABC TV

Strange I know that some guy in Australia would be blogging about a US TV show that has never appeared (nor shows any signs of appearing) on Australian TV, but here’s what happened. The other day I was listening to Buzz Out Loud and they mentioned that going to http://www.apple.com/music/ disabled the browser’s back button. Turns out they were not correct (and they admitted it the next day), instead all calls the the music subdirectory are bounced to http://www.apple.com/itunes/. On the PC when attempting to go back it included the bounce page in the history so they were really going back to the bounce page and being bounced again.

So anyway… on the iTunes page on apple.com was a promo for Kyle XY… it’s not like me to pass up a chance to see a nice looking guy and it was advertised as a free download from iTMS… well turns out of course that it is only available on the US store, not having a US billing address (maybe the boys can help me with this soon) I had to turn to BT for assistance.

After a short time I had the file for Kyle XY on my desktop for viewing.

Like all current US sci-fi type shows (think Surface, Invasion) they have started off very crypticly. Keeping Kyle’s origin well hidden. Of course the XY could imply he is a clone. But given that a background news report (which is for our benefit as none of the family reacts to it) states that a girl has shown up in similar circumstances (naked, without memory and without bellybutton). If we assume her name would be something XX then we can assume the XY in Kyle XY just means he’s male.
Is he a genetically formed, alien bred? Are THEY together the new Adam and Eve? One thing is sure, the boy knows how to stipple.

I think the actor who plays Kyle (Matt Dallas) watched a whole lotta Data from Star Trek TNG, but he’s not an android they’ve already scanned his head.


Any attempt to try and explain what I dreamt last night will not be adequate, but I must try. Click the arrow to read the rest of the post… it is quite long. I apologise now for any spelling errors, it has been written pretty much as soon as I woke.

Basketball Woes

Bugger, bugger… we lost again. At least this time it wasn’t a walk over… I think the score was 33:28, they won… for the first half of the game we were one man down. Simon wasn’t going to play but came in to tell us and found that we were a man down so stuck around. Glad he brought  stuff with him.

No scoring for me, but I did stop them from scoring on several occasions. So a little happy with myself.

It is David’s birthday next wednesday so I won’t be playing… I think I’ll be out at Mexican that night… yay. Better hit the gym as a pre-emptive strike for all thos calories coming my way over the next week.

My Name is Nathaniel…

It’s dark where I exist, an ageless time has passed, I’ve been thirteen for as long as I can remember. I see the world though blurred eyes, glimpses of clarity let me see what THEY want me to see. At least I’m not alone. There are the others, a council of many.

I don’t get this opportunity often so let me say my piece, even now I feel them tugging me back into my place, they don’t want me at the front, my time is in the past and another leads. A fragmented mind, scared, certain, at ease, curious, without fear, trembling in a void. I am but one, we are many.

So very few times are available when the mind relaxes and we are free to have a voice. And now that I am here I don’t know what to say. There is one in here who never sees the light. You wouldn’t like it if he did… even we fear him, it’s all we can do to keep him down.

The one who leads is clear, and level, unlike the one before him. But like the before and I the leaders time will pass and another will take his place.

Fractured mind… they say I’ve told you too much, things you don’t need to know, things that you shouldn’t know. I don’t think I’ve said enough. Another time will come… until then, believe.

Get with the Program Sony

Hey Sony… nice move allowing people to share music on their blogs and “profile pages” (read as myspace).

But dudes you need to improve the quality… BIG TIME. I checked out Dixie Chicks song “Not Ready to Make Nice” and the sound quality is nasty. Given what you can do with Flash 8 and some of the codecs, this implimentation is poor form.
Some other cool tracks of note P!nk’s “Who Knew“, Teddy Geiger’s “For You I Will (Confidence)“.

Good plan, so far poorly implimented. You can’t even do the embed yet. Why launch it before you’re ready?
