Poem, Solitude.

I'm really starting to digg poems.

By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.


LAUGH, and the world will laugh with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it's mirth,
But has trouble enough of it's own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it's is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from a voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life's gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain."

Ginger Tee

It came.

It saw.

It conquered the cold.

I feel like a million bucks, although it made me sleep for twelve hours...

After I took a hit of that I couldn't keep my eyes open to save my life so I gave up, but I feel great today, Fuck you Oranges, Hello Gingah'.

Since I don't have Ginger left at home anymore I can't make a video but here is everybodies Kevin Rose teaching us How-To, enjoy:

The "Common" Cold

What can only be described as the worst virus ever has crept up on me. What started with my mom being sick for a few days has turned into the bubonic plague in the Köseoglu household.

Moms couldn't speak for 2 days (thank god for that) and dad was bedridden and hasn't gone to work (first time ever) although I tried to dodge it like it was aids alas... here I lay.

If it is possible to die from the cold I am possibly headed down that road.

Wikipedia says:

"Acute viral nasopharyngitis, or acute coryza, usually known as the common cold, is a highly contagious, viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system, primarily caused by picornaviruses (including rhinoviruses) or coronaviruses.

Common symptoms are sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing and coughing; sometimes accompanied by 'pink eye', muscle aches, fatigue, malaise, headaches, muscle weakness, and loss of appetite. Fever and extreme exhaustion are more usual in influenza. The symptoms of a cold usually resolve after about one week, but can last up to two. Symptoms may be more severe in infants and young children. Although the disease is generally mild and self-limiting, patients with common colds often seek professional medical help, use over-the-counter drugs, and may miss school or work days. The annual cumulative societal cost of the common cold in developed countries is considerable in terms of money spent on remedies, and hours of work lost.

The primary method to prevent infection is hand-washing to minimize person-to-person transmission of the virus. There are no antiviral drugs approved to treat or cure the infection. Most available medications are palliative and treat symptoms only. Megadoses of vitamin C, preparations from echinacea, and zinc gluconate have been studied as treatments for the common cold although none has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration or European Medicines Agency."


Well for a few days anyway.

I have to head to the kitchen, my friend Gustavo S (Who famously INVENTED the phrase F.O.B, Food over Bitches) said that vitamin C is good, which the Wiki article implies, so I'm going to overdose on that now, if I don't make it alive... whoever reads this can have my dreamcast.

A song for the lovers.

I'm trying to edit some videos so I can start getting out Karl Pilkington material but Final Cut Pro is a bitch.

Mmmm Science!

Science and animals are some of the most interesting things I like to learn about. I would never want to work with either of em though because I can't be fucking arsed to do researched but I like hard facts.

In the past couple of weeks I've learned quite a lot about space and time and abstract stuff.

Just today I learned about time. It's really a very abstract thing to say the least. Time is a lot more then just the time on your watch or your digital clock.

Time is relative. It's relative to big ass objects in space. The time (as it were) runs at a constant speed here on earth because YOU as an individual who preserves time is standing on earth which is a BAOIS (Big Ass Object In Space). If you would take a trip out in space where you are nowhere near anything with mass time for you would SPEED UP. Time for you would go faster then us people on earth and thus you would grow older faster etc.

Admittedly they did not say how faster it would be, but I can imagine it being very very very tiny, like... you would not notice a difference, BUT there IS a difference and that's fucking A.

So they closer you get to something with larger mass, the more time slows down. They tested this theory out. They shot a radio beam on to the surface of Mercury, and waited for a signal to come back. Since Mercury was at a certain distance away they figured out it would take X amount of time for it to get back to earth. They shot a beam just as it was passing behind the sun. The radio beams wizzed past the sun, bounced of Mercury and came back, but it had taken LONGER then it should have because as the radio beams traveled past the sun which indeed is a BAOIS the time for the radio beam slowed down and IT slowed down. And that is fucking interesting, and that's not even the top and bottom of it, I just scraped the tip of the ice berg.

If you wanna see the BBC documentary you can find it here (it's a torrent).

Science, YOU ROCK.

More long ass boring facts like this that interests me later ^_^

Top 25 list on iTunes

This is my Top 25 list. And I love these songs. A few of em' really should not be there, like Dream Girl with R Kelly and/or How We Do It Over Here with Busta Rhymes. The songs are good, don't get me wrong but not really top 25 worthy, I think I just over played them at one point so they snuck up the list. And yes even Kiss Me with Six Pence None The Richer Is There. what? WHAT?!?!

There are a lot of songs that are not on the list but should be there but haven't gotten on there probably because I skip the last tiny bit before iTunes can record it as I have listened to it once.
I've come across some really really good tunes lately as well that are really fresh (for me anyways) like Alex Morph - Walk The Edge(Morph Woody van Eyden Remix) HQ. I like thoes heavy'ish techno kind of songs, they bring a lot of emotions with them somehow. Probably because I personally link them to some video I have seen or some Idea for a film or scene or something that is rolling in my head.

Vibe Tribe - Carousel

But also classics such as The Thorns - No Blue Sky, Kings of Convinience - Homesick. Amazing songs!

I could go on all day because music is a big part of everybodies lives as a closure I can say that at the bottom of the top 25 list you'll see 2pac - Don't you trust me.

It's probably one of the greatest songs ever made, lyrically and all. It struck such a strong meaning to me. I don't really want to get into it but I was going through a really rough patch at a point in my life and I found this song hanging around and I found it and listened to it by accident and 2pac just sang everything I felt. So it has a really deep connection with me (wow that didn't sound corny at all). He must have wrote that song to a certain someone, he wanted that person to listen to that song and just ask that person Don't you trust me?

Don't you trust me?

Food for thought part Un

Food for life! F.O.B (Food Over Bitches) etc etc, we all love food don't we? Yes we do fatties :). Luckily I am not a part of you lot, since I am an ectomorph! In layman terms it means I can eat whatever I want, whenever I want and don't gain an ounce of fat. It's really a double edged sword since I am naturally very thin, the gym takes care of that problem though.

So I am gonna start showing off some amazing food now and again for your eyes to feast.

Today we start off with what my sis made today (the only good thing with having an older sister).

Chocolate cake with whipped cream! Suck it.

Here is a recipe for A (not the one we used, you think I am mad?) chocolate cake, make it, eat it, love it.

Dear readers.

Since I can't find my cable that goes from my digital camera to my computer I am starved for updates, until I find it though, here is some more youtube comedy genius.
