Jeff's online journal, ramblings, whatever.

About

In the far off reaches of the universe, one man has decided to risk it all for the woman he loves, but a secretive shadow organization is hot on his heels as he struggles to find his identity and overthrow all evil…

This blog…has nothing to do with that man.

No, seriously, this is just kind of my miscellaneous blog. I post all sorts of stuff, from music I’ve written, to cool things I’ve found online, to deep, psychological evaluations of my modus operandi, to general angsty Livejournal-type stuff. The intended audience for this all? Myself, firstly, and secondly, anyone interested in getting to know me better. And finally, for forensic experts in the future who want to find out exactly where it all started going wrong…

DISCLAIMER: A lot of the entries on this blog are quite angsty. I do not wish to give the wrong impression. Most of the time I’m relatively content. It’s just that, in those down moments, I seem much more likely to write a blog entry than other moments. Therefore, these posts are just the bottom 10% of the iceberg when it comes to who I am. Keep that in mind when you’re reading over this stuff. In conclusion, SMAIL!!! (pronounced phonetically)

Here’s some stuff I copied over from Facebook:

Activities:
I write music. And occasionally get paid for it, too.

Interests:
I like eating, singing, acting, tech stuff, and writing songs that make the whole world sing. Just like that grapefruit from Meet the Raisins.

Religious Views:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons)

Favorite Music:
Good music. I like lots o’ different kinds, including a lot of kinds that nobody really likes. (I mean, who else currently has 1007 MIDI files on their Winamp playlist? *MIDI files!!!*) I am a big fan of They Might Be Giants and some showtunes, and I find video game music to be often underrated, but don’t get me on my soapbox about that one!

Favorite TV Shows:
Arthur, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Quantum Leap, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Ducktales, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Talespin; basically anything from the Disney Afternoon before Goof Troop.

Favorite Movies:
I do like movies. They’re toe-tapping fun.

Favorite Books:
Abuk, master of locks.

Favorite Quotes:
“Everyone feels benevolent if nothing happens to be annoying him at the moment.” – C.S. Lewis

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.” – C.S. Lewis

“The secret to success in theater is just to hang in till everyone quits or dies” – Colin Mochrie

“There are two kinds of marriage:
One where Ron marries Hermione.
The other where I go back in time and marry Jenni Porter.” – Josh Reese

“Hey there buddy, hey there slugger,
put up your hands I’m a friendly mugger.
Give me your money, give me your dog,
cut down the tree then give me a log.
Give me the bushes, and give me the trees,
give me the dogs with all the fleas.
Give me the sky, give me that thing…
WOO! I’M CRAZY! WOOO!” – Colin Mochrie

“This reminds me of the time I got shanghaied in Shanghai on a junk full of junk. I think that happened twice!” – Monterey Jack

“There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic,and still others where it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.” – Someone named Collette

“So, who’s sneakier: Gollum or Harriet Tubman?” – Allen Tenbuccshen (I know the name is spelled wrong)

“A fanatic is one who has lost sight of his goal but redoubled his efforts to get there.” – Dallin H. Oaks

“Wallpaper is pleasing. People are people.” – Me, according to Haley Greer

“Being afraid all of the time of forgetting somebody’s name. Not…not knowing what to do with your hands…I mean, I am the guy who writes down things to remember to say when there’s a party. And then when he finally gets there, he winds up alone in the corner trying to look comfortable examining a potted plant.” – Lieutenant Reginald Barclay

“I’m no writer, but if I were, it seems to me I’d want to poke my head up every once in a while and take a look around; see what’s going on. It’s life, Jake! You can miss it if you don’t open your eyes.” – Captain Benjamin Sisko
