My Baby Takes The Morning Train, Because She Is Slightly Insane
JeffreyTanguay

I'm not a morning person. Never really have been. I've always been a fan of staying up and sleeping in, and that paradigm has pretty much been cemented after like 5 years of working closing shifts pretty much always. Then you look at my friends, who work daytime jobs. They'll be up as early as 5 am, doing stuff during the daytime, being all "normal" and such. The reason I bring this up is because it can be interesting setting up an activity like hiking, since our schedules have totally different repercussions. I usually aim for about 9am, since I have to wake up a bit early (and lose sleep!), and most likely was up pretty late the night before, but my buddy pushes it forward to 8 because

Can We Forget How Old I Am?
JeffreyTanguay

There is a song that I keep hearing on the radio. Normally I stick to the metal and hard rock stations, but I branched out to the indie/alt stations a few months ago and there is this one song that I can't help but identify with, and it trips me out. Not just because I really get the material, but because it's super relaxed and fun to listen to. It's that type of song that I'd really like to hear at a party, but parties these days are few and far apart. Hence the song being so goddamn relevant. Like, right now, I could go out, but after I've been home it just feels like a bunch of extra work for no pay out. Nothing good happens past 2 am.   SUDDEN TRANSITION:

A Means To An End
JeffreyTanguay

I picked up a nectar collector this week. For those unaware, a nectar collector is a device used for the purpose of imbibing cannabis extracts; or rather, something to get (really) high with. It's pretty much a portable dab rig. I decided that it was time to pick up a rig since flower tends to make my room smell a stoner's lair. To be fair, I AM a stoner; I like being high so much that what it takes to get me there would literally floor an average or new user. Tolerance is a hell of a thing! Anyways, I bring this up because after shopping around I have found that even when getting ripped you have a range for any accessory or product you can think of! I've heard of these things going for almost

It Was Hard, But They Took It Well!
JeffreyTanguay

A while ago, I challenged one of my friends. You see, we both enjoy reading, but I have an advantage over him in terms of my speed and comprehension. That being said, and hardly wishing to toot my own horn, I suggested a trade of sorts wherein he reads one of my suggestions and I read two of his, so that we can both begin to understand the other a bit better. I suggested he read It, a long story by Stephen King; in exchange, I would read Anathem and Blood Meridian. I will be honest; I have barely begun reading Blood Meridian, because I am accustomed to an entirely different (and admittedly more accessible) style of prose. It daunts me. Also, Anathem is

Everything's Coming Up Purple
JeffreyTanguay

    What a week! It was pretty crazy seeing the internet freak out about Prince passing away. I have to be honest, I never really got into his work, but I definitely respected him as an artist after seeing him shred on guitar a few times. The first time I saw a video of it I realized that this dude takes to guitar like a fish takes to water. I mean, I had seen Clapton play and stuff like that, but Prince truly owned playing guitar like it was an afterthought. I read a passage a while ago in The Wise Man's Fear where the main character plays a joke on the audience during a performance, by making an easy song look tough, and a tough song look easy. Prince was

I'm Addicted To Speed
JeffreyTanguay

I mentioned it last week, but I have taken on the pinnacle of auto based competition: TRACKMANIA! This is an auto racing videogame that is all about speed and precision, and racing the clock. Each track takes less than thirty seconds to complete on average, IF you are good enough to not mess up; otherwise sometimes a track can take an hour and massive amounts of frustration. Did I mention the average speed is generally "speederbike"? My old roommate and I have been in a massive contest for a few days, where one of us will beat a track, and then the other will beat his time. And then gloat. While I've been at quiz, I got three notifications about getting my time beat. dammit. I gotta get faster.   Really

Bleeps And Bloops Make Hella Loops
JeffreyTanguay

    An 8-bit audio round always makes me happy! there's something so comforting about the fuzzy goodness created by synthesizers; I'm pretty sure growing up with a NES inspired my love for chiptune remixes of popular songs. You know, I have a completely 8-bit recreation of Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. It's the whole thing; Side 1 and Side 2. It's not exactly perfect, because vocals are usually the first thing to suffer or disappear in a chip remix, but it's still pretty awesome!    A slightly smaller quiz last night in terms of teams, since we had two teams with 7 or 8 people that would normally split up.

JeffreyTanguay

You know what sucks? Jury summons. I got one, and my date is tomorrow, and while I write this at the bar I am hoping that I get rejected, because the LAST time I had jury duty I was in a murder trial for like a week and then found out right at the end that I was an alternate. I mean, yay, I don't have to sit around for deliberations, but I totally forgot every related detail and never got to find out how it ended! Guilty? Not guilty? What a cliffhanger! I'll never find out either, so… I hope I don't have to do it again.   Ooh wee, tonight's quiz was captivating!

The Difference Between Squid And Octopus

Last night we had a thunder and hail storm. WHAAAAT?! A week ago we had a blizzard, and now you can barely tell; there are a few piles of snow net to parking lots that, like fossils, can give us clues about what happened, but that's about it. CO is crazy!   I had a pretty good time running quiz last night! There were some pretty funny answers written down as well. One had a drawing of Mikhail Gorbachav's head, just in case I didn't know who it was. Another team managed to write "octopus" after I said the word "squid" no less than three times; I had to bust their chops since both of those animals have fascinated me for a long time, and there IS a difference.

There Is A Riot Happening In My Brain
JeffreyTanguay

I never learn. Or, I'm getting older, and that is an unsettling prospect, since stuff doesn't work as well as it used to. I'm talking specifically about my ability to process alcohol. How in the hell does three beers equal a crippling hangover headache at 5 in the morning, huh? I miss the days when forgetting to drink water wasn't a horrific transgression against the hydration gods. Actually, now that I think about it it... that's probably, like, THE transgression, if we're talking about gods of hydration. Not drinking water is like shunning them or something. Maybe I deserved it after all...   We had a bunch of teams last night, and a lot of new

    So they announced the Dark Tower is officially becoming a movie last week! I'm pretty excited, but, as for any book that I enjoy being made into a movie, only cautiously optimistic. See, I figured out a way to explain away a lot of differences that might make it to screen, but I can only hope they don't take too many liberties with the story.   Aw crap. I just broke a glass. Well, I'm not going to take all the credit, but I was the only one around, so I guess its on me, and whoever left it in a precarious position. I mean, I was 10 feet away when I heard the noise!

Using Smut To Create Schadenfreude (The Best Feeling)
JeffreyTanguay

Last night, we had a series of questions regarding fan fiction smut based on popular TV shows. I really feel like I was able to make some people cringe, and that's a good feeling. When I first read through the questions I started laughing, and then I started laughing harder when I thought about a certain scene from Hateful 8. "You got pictures in your head, now!" Data doing frottage? Oh man. Don't google it. Remember, Rule 34 brings pleasure and pain.   Other themes for the night included Super Tuesday (which, in my opinion went really well for our state! Go Bernie!), those VH1 "I Love The [Decade]s!" shows, and sexy cities in France. We also tested

Everything Comes Back Around I Guess
JeffreyTanguay

Last night after quiz I was hanging around, chatting with regulars, and lost track of time. Normally I don't care too much, but I had forgotten to order some food and the kitchen was closed. I spent some time on the way home racking my brain on where to eat, but nothing really exciting popped into my head at 11:15pm on a Monday -- there just aren't a lot of options in that time slot. I decided to fall back to an old standby: McDonalds breakfast (late nite edition!). The McGriddle is my standard, but I just wanted something simple, not life-changing, so I went with a sausage mcmuffin meal, extra hash brown: the breakfast of champions! Now that you are familiar with the setup, here is the

I quite enjoy hip hop. Rap not as much; if you are going on about cars clubs money etc I don't really care. I'm looking for unique rhymes, interesting flows, awesome beats, and good ideas. Last night's round 7 threw me for a loop! I did not know that there was a hip hip historical play regarding the founding fathers, but some of our quizzers did, and cheered when I announced it. So, now I guess i have a new musical that I need to see. If I do see it, that will bring my grand total to one.   We had some great themes last night!

A Crazy Week Has Ended!
JeffreyTanguay

This last week has been incredibly busy. Between buying a car, preparing for and getting through the Super Bowl at work, doing massive cleaning projects and trying to socialize with visiting friends, I am freaking exhausted!    The Super Bowl was great! I didn't get to see a lot of it, but I did manage to scrape out a few minutes and catch the end of the game. The Broncos owned the field from the beginning, though, and the defense apparently killed it. I was pretty happy yesterday to skip the parade and accompanying crowds and shenanigans in favor of a few extra hours of uninterrupted sleep. I also got to miss all of that crazy traffic.
