We'll Move It, But Don't Guarentee It's Safety


Neil, Ross, Chris Kelly, and I moved an organ for Neil and his Mom. For us this is an ordinary occasion along with moving coke machines, various other organs, and a laundry list of unnecessary items. We delivered the organ to Neil's mom, and she seemed very pleased by the whole endeavor. In a way we felt like Santa Claus, except more real and less fat. There were also no cookies or milk to speak of, however there were poodles.

I don't understand also how people can just give away things as awesome as organs on Craigslist. I heard about someone on Cape who took a piano, a nice almost new piano, and placed it in the woods where someone found it. I at first thought it might be one of my friends, because we had actually thought of this idea. However, someone just stole our idea and did it first. I think we will just leave a coke machine in the middle of the woods, that will show them.

I think the whole barter system we have now is fasinatating. When you start thinking about all the things on craiglist and ebay, people can sell almost anything to anyone. In the past it was a man on a cart carrying things from village to village and selling them off. I wonder if he had a logo on his cart for his company. That guy incorporated or something like that. He probably had alot of cool shit in that cart, people were much more creative back then.

We need some of that creativity these days.

Well I am off,

Your Going Home Thoreau


Tomorrow I will be making the long, and by long I mean hour and a half trip home for Thanksgiving break. A holiday, which if you think about it is kind of stupid to get three days off for but I guess its our way of "allowing for travel". Its kind of funny to think businesses and schools have to think about things like travel and allow days off just for that. Thanksgiving is one of the only holidays where that happens, which is odd. However, all this packing and thinking about my short vacation somehow turned my mind to Thoreau.

Thoreau, for those who don't know but should know, was a famous transcendentalist (a fancy word for someone against how society is being run), who spend 2 years living on Walden Pond in Mass, trying to show everyone how to live the simple life. He wrote a book while he was there, it became famous, and now Dale looks a lot like him.

My thoughts though was what it must of been like for him to go home after all that time. I mean he spend two years alone, away from any friends and family he had. He must have had some many notifications on Facebook and thousands of emails. I wonder though if he felt much like me, overwhelmed by everything that he has to catch up with, and trying to figure out the whirlwind that is his life. I am sure he went away to figure out a lot of things and I wonder if he did, it would at least give me hope.

On another note I am getting excited for it to snow, if only to make up for the blistering cold. I have always wonder what it would be like to go winter hiking in the mountains and how much tougher it must be. I think eventually I would love to try it because it would be quite beautiful and a good test. I have been listening to the "In An Aeroplane Over the Sea" album by Neutral Milk Hotel, and it would be perfect for winter hiking. Everyone should check it out.

So tomorrow I am off to good ole Cape Cod for lots of fun and lots of thinking. Wish me luck.

Till Sometime Soon,

Red Bull Daze and Naps


I woke up this morning for my usually Thursday gauntlet of 3 classes from 8 straight through till 1:30. I usually buy a monster or a red bull so I can get through that first hour and a half and get my day started. I have been doing this almost every Tuesday and Thursday this whole semester and I have noticed something about starting off my day with an energy drink. After about 2 o clock once I have eaten and whatnot I get what I call a "red bull daze". It is a very surreal experience where I am looking around at nothing in particular usually dazing off into space. The weirdest part is that sound starts to blur and its like my mind was hyped up on energy and is now creepy to a slow halt and my whole brain is chaos. Therefore, I cannot make out sounds or focus in on anything at all. I notice that usually I'm not even thinking about anything at all, which is all too weird and freaks me out on a regular basis. I would compare to tunnel vision, but that implies intense focus on one specific thing and that is far from what is going on. This is kinda what I imagine a photo of what I am talking about would look like.

I have decided to take as many naps as possible during the day due to there awesomeness and my lack of sleep at night. This way it allows me to sleep during the day and be rested and stay up late without any regrets. I have not figured out how this will effect my schoolwork but lets keep our fingers crossed.

The Science of Sleep and the Thought


I woke up this morning, two hours after I would of liked and starting thinking as anyone would any regular morning. Finally after about 30 minutes of lying in bed I realize something I had thought right before sleep only 8 hours ago. It got me thinking about all the times I have what at the time seem to be important thoughts, and totally forget them in the morning. It was one of those thoughts that almost keeps you awake too, something that should of been the first thing I thought about in the morning. However it took me a solid 30 minutes of just thinking before I came back across this thought. I found all of that very unnerving because I began to question what is important and how something could lose importance in a period of 8 hours of sleep. Ironically that fear and feeling of uncertainly about importance went away within 5 minutes. Making that thought also unimportant as well. In turn making this paragraph unimportant and most likely forgettable.

The last paragraph also got me thinking about the unimportance of your blogging to other people. You of course being the average blogger who just mumbles your various thoughts onto the web. Yet somehow a lot of people usually find one persons random mumbling quite interesting. Does that make it important? I guess it really does not matter but since I am just throwing words down here I like to think somebody is interested, other them myself of course.

I just got distracted and lost the idea for this blog, uhhhhhhh, The Science of Sleep is a weird movie that I saw with Neil at Nickelodeon cinemas. I would check it out if you want to be blown. That connects to my first paragraph well enough so that works.

I feel this blog is very forgettable, sorry all

Till Tm,
A name that starts with T

P.S. That is Ross in a Elf costume..yay Christmas

Holidays and Sex Changes


In the midst of an extremely long week and following weekend my head is too cluttered to do anything but blog at the moment.

This afternoon Michael and I had a thought about how holidays like Halloween or even now Thanksgiving are just excuses we have made to distract from the fact that life sucks. Not sucks in the scheme of a lifetime, but day to day life can become quite monotonous. For most adults the weekday consists of working, eating, sleeping, and not much room for many other little joys other then their favorite Wednesday night sitcom. It was a pointless conversation but we established that people make holidays excuses to go out and party and most of the time look like fools because during the week they would rather be acting like that anyway. However, in a world where everyone runs around dressed as nurses and celebrating the idea of landing on a rock, not much would get done. It is however necessary so we can all stay a little sane.

We also wondered if one half of a married couple got a sex change, would their marriage not be recognized anymore. We sort of agreed that there must be something saying you were a male or female at the time of marriage, and also decided we are not sure if you can completely legally change your gender.

I saw Iron and Wine featuring the man above Sam Beam. The concert was quite worth it due to a man who played a thousand mystery items and the fact that we were literally sitting on stage at the bands feet. If you have not heard any of Sam's stuff, check it out if only for his sick beard.

After the week I will be ready for the Thanksgiving break, mostly due to the lack of sleep I will be getting the next few nights. Neil, Ross, and I will be podcasting this break for our show The Greenlight Podcast, which you can find on Itunes if you feel so inclined.

Here is an amazing Iron and Wine live clip that you should watch because if your a human you will like it, Aliens need not apply

Deviating From The Norm

I have decided that I shall for at least one or maybe two entries, remove myself from talking about general, and usually vague ideas and for once talk about myself. Hopefully it will be interesting and if not well who cares, its not like anyone is reading this bullshit anyway. But in case in some drunken or half asleep state someone may run across this blog and wonder, what is going on in Andrew's life, I will continue this entry.

Its seems that my life has been changing very rabidly or not at all. I cannot yet tell what is really going on or happening but I definitely have been thinking a lot more often. First off my foot is itching like a bitch, so there is that. I have been drifting b]etween wanting to be on the move and wanting to stay in one spot. I have not spent a weekend either on a film shoot, at Amherst, or at home in the last five weeks. I cannot tell if this is because I do not want to be on campus or what but something has subconsciously pushed me to creating such a schedule. I have come to the conclusion that it is probably the fact that I am very, very confused about the direction my life is going and so moving and keeping busy, at least gives me something to grasp on to. At the same time as all this though I wouldnt mind just sitting in one spot for a little while and I am hoping that winter break will help me figure out all of this nonsensical bullshit.

I got back together with Gina, which I believe is the right move and now I have to make up for some mistakes I have made in the past, but its worth it. I am also doing a pretty good job of keeping my grades up I think, and overall happy with how this year is going. However I am desperately slowly crawling towards winter break, which hopefully will go much like last years did. I believe my winter break last year was some of the best months I have spent but I also believe it was a lot of people in the right place at the right time and the odds of that perfect mixture again are less then likely. However the LAN is living on and I can only hope that the laughs, jokes, and beardz will keep flowing as they should. I guess with every new situation though there comes different positives and even though this winter break will not be the same as last year, it can be just as good. The J on my mac keyboard is broken, btw.

I plan on getting a Daniel Johnston T shirt, new awesome headphones, 4 Gb of RAM for my computer, and a new motor for the coke machine this winter break. As well hopefully go to one Celtics and game and one Bruins game. Going home this weekend with Gina, Jim is also going home. I can hear Kris watching the replay of the Bruins game we just went to, Candians fans are failures. Tim Kelly is rollin in the vidz kid, with the bottles in the case on the island. Can't wait to Lan------>
