Mark Twain...

Just wanted to share this with you. It's currently one of my favorite videos on youtube. Keep it mind this was meant to be a children's cartoon, but this segment of the cartoon is by far the best part - it says so much......

Well everyone, back from a short break in blogging, so here's a short one - as you all know SOPA has been temporarily put on ice whilst legislators work for or against the atrocity that is this bill. What are your thoughts? Do you think your internet should be censored as if we were some communist third-world country? Is that seriously what America is coming to? Probably. But hopefully not - There will always be a way to combat censorship - mark my words.

Accounting 2001

Well, today begins the last semester at LSU to earn my Associates degree in applied computer information sciences. I'm so glad that it's almost over and glad that my family won't have to pay for massively overpriced books and tuition, some of which with subpar i structors which confirm the course resources and then leave you to teach it to yourself... but hey, isn't that what life is all about? Oh well, in a few months ill have my overpriced piece of paper (which entitles me to absolutely nothing, except being recognized as a statistic (LOL)) and I'll shortly be hunting for an entry-level computer repair and or troubleshooting / installations job. Heh. Here's a little snapshot for whatever reason, oh yeah, someone told me not to blog without pictures. ( and no i'm not just sitting in an empty room- everyone gravitated toward the back anyway - i just so happened to not include anyone in the shot for uh, legal reasons.

pre-post edit: professor is an old guy who walked in and said "Accounting... okay.. everyone here for Accounting 2001?" I was the only one who verbally responded. Lulz

Aren't you proud of me >:3

Behold, Dragon.

Here is a picture of my buddy's Frilled dragon!
Basking in the artificial light .
Frilled dragons are very easy look after, and make great pets for older kids and young adults - they are very easy to handle and have a ton of character! These dragons are active during the day, and can live up to 9 years old. They do not need a multitude of space and the dragon's needs can be easily met in most homes. Males are usually larger than females and if cared for properly, can reach their maximum size in one year.  Frilled dragons originate from the deserts of central Australia.

I think I woke him up XD!

All my fellow bloggers who happen to be music fans should check it out, you might learn something even if you don't play guitar! I hope you guys enjoy :) -Picture unrelated, but awesome.

Project RG. (The neverending project)

A transformation of my favorite guitar, and Ibanez RG series. Starting  out as a bare-bones RG270 model, it has evolved over the years to become probably my favorite guitar ever! It has since gained Seymour Duncan's JB(bridge)/Jazz(neck) pickups, a new Floyd Rose tremolo (pics of the old one coming shortly), professional fretwork from a master luthier, and numerous home-brew paint jobs (my favorite part) Here's a before and after montage!
Before (right)

How's that camera angle :P
