Welcome to my Friday... by Joel

Hello Friends and Lovers!

Joel, here. The Ultimate Blogger. Just stopping by for a quick note. How you guys doing? It's good to see you. Anyway, welcome to my entry, on this wonderful, day-after-Cinco De Mayo, Friday, the 6th of May, 2005. I'm glad we have this time together. I quoted Prince this evening and it went like this: "I was dreaming when I wrote this, so forgive me if it goes astray. But, when I woke up this morning, coulda sworn it was Judgment Day" Nice.

I was so stressed about this. Coulda sworn it was judgment day. "I guess I gotta write a good post", I thought. Then I remembered, "This is just a contest, and tomorrow is a new day, plus, I got a hot chick cooking for me" Then I thought: "No problem." So yeah, no problem. Sorry you couldn't hang, Crash. Take care. Keep Blogging.

Here's what I think about technology:
(Current soundtrack I'm listening to: 1950's Sex Education Tapes. So funny.)

1. Things can get better.
2. If they're don't, we'll figure it out.
3. New things are cool.
4. Old things are cool.
5. The one's that replace the old ones, are usually better for a reason. They do more stuff.
6. It doesn't make the old ones bad. Sometimes the old ones look cooler. (Work on that, guys)
7. It feels good to understand new things.
8. I used to think I knew stuff.
9. Boy was I wrong!
10. Now if I don't know something, I ask someone, and if they don't know, I ask my computer.

Man, technology is great. Don't you think? I had forgotten that stuff a few months ago, now they're always on my mind. Old and new.

I am constantly affected by technology.

This was a great topic, and I had to ask all the smart people, and dummies that I know: "What do I say?" I made videos, I took pictures, I brushed up on my HTML. I was inspired.

But I bet you guys are bored with all that, and so I'll just cut to the chase. I am happy with my old self, happier with my new self, and know I can get better with the help of my friends, and a little faith in myself.

That is technology. That's what it means to me. Blogging means letting you guys in, here you are.

That to me is the statement of a person who loves technology, wants to talk about technology from the inception of the universe, to the iPod Shuffle on my girlfriend's arm. And I dig it all. You asked, and I said. I hope it didn't bore you.

I'm Out Like Crash,

I really liked the vague, creepy vibe of this entry. So weird. Closing with Sara's pointers is totally crucial and awesome!!

Weird vibe, I am into it.

yeah i agree
really weird and abstract and philosophical and vague
seems like there is more there than there is, which is then re-affirmed with your girlfriend talking about it.

perhaps this is intentional, or perhaps thats just how and who you were at the time, but im pretty into it.

joel, you are the most non-straightforward person on here. although some might tag you as simply annoying, i for one enjoy your presence in this game.
