On Anger

Power grid went down in District 3 today just when I was connecting to the internet for a phone call. I gathered my things, packed up, and headed over to a cafe in D1 to make the call. My business partner there luckily had cleared two hours for the call, so we still covered everything.

I sat in this cafe for a while, but it was a little bit loud, so I decided to move to another cafe nearby. The place I moved was an American chain that serves weak coffee at high prices. Really, it's a bad choice of a cafe to go to for coffee's sake, but tends to be an excellent cafe for work environment. Normally there is quiet, ambient music playing, it's well lit, and there's plenty of space and power outlets.

So after I'd bought my expensive, weak coffee, and expensive, mediocre food, I headed upstairs to see some guys setting up audio equipment. Hmm.

One guy is testing some sort of mixing board or something, in short toot toot toots and feedback. This is a little bit annoying. I put some light music on so I can read, write, and do some work. The testing eventually stops and two guys come up with guitars.

They're playing and it's... not very good. They're all over the place, pretty uncohesive with their music. No transitions between songs or even genres. They played some Led Zeppelin, and then some country music, and then some Eric Clapton, and like, a lot of this is music I like, but you gotta transition through music for it to be decent.

Juicing and Jazz

On Man of the Couch

This post has nothing to do with jazz, I'm just a sucker for alliteration. It does, however, have everything to do with juicing. We're currently borrowing a juicer from a co-worker so if we don't like it and don't want to stick with it we aren't out a couple hundred bucks.

I feel like the benefits of juicing are pretty well known. If you don't know then here's a simple yet highly scientific formula:

Juice+excercise+radiation = Superhero

exercise+radiation-juice = Side-kick

Aside from not wanting to be a lame sidekick, we are also interested in the nutritional benefits. It's a quick easy way to take care of a couple servings of fruits and vegetables. Something we're both not very good at. Plus I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and it scared me straight.
