No updates on my various web presences, but that doesn't mean I'm not doing anything. On my radar:




  • planning for my two-week trip to Japan

  • running [tiling window managers](http://www.suckless.org/wiki/wmii) on OS X

  • booking shows for my [awesome band](http://ma46.com)

  • python and ruby programming

  • motorcycle maintenance

  • tax refunds

  • cleaning up my filthy apartment (see attached image)

  • beating Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

  • reviewing my 3-400 level Japanese texts from college


I'll write about some of this stuff soon, sure. In the meantime you can see my twitter or planet for mundane details.

"Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under
the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world.
If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for
ten years. If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore
myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, devoted
it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to
being bad."
