So I was meandering around last night looking for blocks… looking for a streaming radio block. And then I thought about just linking to my favorite station in St. Louis. So I went to their site and started meandering around, and I was clicking on some stuff… and I found their “weird pages” link or something. They have a link to this infinite bubble wrap and I recognized it as a flash page. So I clicked through to the creator’s web site. I was shocked and amazed. This guy’s site is so cool! He has done several other sites which you can check out from his site. It’s a must see. I am fan of flash and this guy is intense. Make sure you check out some of his amusements on the front page… One, in particular, that I found amusing was “The Economists”. To find that one in particular, click on the last grey box above the word “Amusements”. Keep an eye on their faces. Look how sad they get when the stock price goes down, but notice the wonderful delight when it is very high. I think I played with them for ten minutes last night. So, be sure and check his site out. What? Huh? You want the link? To his page? Oh! Here you go…
I added a few more tracks to the mini mp3 player. All of the tracks are from the album I have been ranting about as of late, The Love Below from Outkast’s Andre 3000. The playlist is short, but covers the eclecticity of the album. So you should give it a spin…
I watched CSI tonight. I can’t stand Grissom’s facial hair… it is starting to bother me. I wonder what they were thinking. Someone needs to grab a razor and put it on that boy’s face. Gross.
But, Catherine was showing some really nice cleavage in a wifebeater. Nice cleavage. She was scooping water and foam from a tub that held a bloated dead body for four days and her cleavage was rocking. She’s the oldest of the two main chicks on the show. I am down with older girls. Mmmmmm, older girls…..
It’s interesting to see what happens when you become just friends with someone you were with for an extended period of time. Well, for me it is. I start looking at other people and thinking things. I start looking at everybody. And thinking everything. But if I am in the car and hear a tune, or if I am out and see something that reminds me, I think about my friend. I think that will be around for a while. I also think I can get over it this time. I don’t know why, but I just can.
I added a mini mp3 player and changed the layout of the site a little bit.. moved the clock to the bottom left… and put the mp3 player in its place. It’s a slick little block… I can add tracks, different playlists.. and, if you detach the remote you can browse elsewhere and still listen. I will have to watch the bandwith and see how it does. I only have two songs uploaded, so I doubt there will be a problem. I don’t really have anything to go on because I deleted my bandwith report for September, so I guess I will find out this month. I was fooling around in my FTP client, deleting stuff, of course. And I deleted my bandwith report because it said it was a “temp” file. Yeah, I’m dumb.
My other site, aeonnfluux.com sucks some major bandwith. I am going to blame it on the forum. I have heard that phpbb uses a lot of server resources. So, since it is the 2nd of the month, my bandwith report is back up and tracking. Here is a screen shot of my bandwith at aeonnfluux.com for yesterday, the 1st:
That shows a transfer of 668.92 Megs in a day. Aeonnfluux.com transfered over a half Gig of info in a day. So, that means I need over 15 Gigs of bandwith each month. Right now, I have 20. But, since I can’t get my averages for last month, I have no idea if this is high or not. I can see stats before I deleted the tracking, and I am showing ranges of 360-843 Megs transferred each day. So, if I am transfering close to a gig a day, I need more bandwith. I won’t upgrade my hosting until it’s absolutely necessary. Right now, I have:
500 MB Diskspace
20 GB Data Transfer
30 MySql Databases
150 Pop3/Ftp Accounts
I use less than 100 megs of diskspace, which is a shame. It appears I am getting my money’s worth in bandwith, though. My next option is to go to:
1000 MB Diskspace
30 GB Data Transfer
75 MySQL Databases
500 Pop3/Ftp Accounts
What the hell am I going to do with 1,000 Megs of diskspace? 24 Megs shy of a Gig…That is insane! And 500 e-mail addresses? I use less than ten as is. I could always do another site. Okay, I am getting way too involved with this. I am asking for webhosting for Christmas. I have gotten close to $150.00 from donations. Maybe I will wait for another $50.00 and break down for a yearly package. $200.00 a year for that package is a sweet deal. A mighty fine deal.. a wonderful deal.. if I need it.. if it’s necessary…
St. Louis radio stations know when I am in the car, I swear to God. Not only do they know that, but they know my girl and I are “just friends” now. They play some of the sappiest shit and they do it on purpose. I am going to have to do a full cavity search this weekend and have the GPS chip in my ass removed. Bastards..
They never play anything good when I am driving around. I can’t remember a time when I was in the car actually happy I was listening to the radio. Fuck St. Louis radio.
If you ever come to STL, be sure to listen to something obnoxious. You won’t have any trouble finding that on the radio. Roll your windows all the way down, hang your arm out and drive 45.. no matter what the limit is. If its 60, 45 or 25.. drive 45. This is classic housier. This is STL.
Took my HTML course last night. My professor is rather quirky in that really good way. This is a five week course and I think I am going to like it a lot. I already finished my homework… even did extra credit. I am an over achiever like that.
I am still listening to Andre. He has been in my PC all morning. I have listened to the disc five times already today. Oh how I love it.
A few more lyrics:
“Behoooold, a Lady…
I see you standing on the wall….
you deeeeserve it all.”
“Everybody needs someone to rub their shoulders
And scratch their dandruff
And everybody need to quit actin hard and shit
Before you get your ass whooped (I’ll slap the fuck out ya!)
And everybody needs somebody to love”
Tonight I am going to finally get around to working on the WebLinks area. I want to use this a semi-blog/semi-homepage. I deleted a lot of the admin links and images so I can narrow down to the areas that need to be worked on. I am going to have a few sections. I want to have a mobile section, PHP Nuke section, and a few others. I have seen a WebLinks Module around somewhere. I will have to see what the difference is between the standard mod. If it is nicer, we will have to see. It if has an area for favicons that would be cool. I am unsure if my sites have favicons. Hmm.. that would be something to check into to. Its not a necessity, just a quirky little thing.
So since I was antsy leaving the house to go to my class, I decided to grab the new OutKast album, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, to listen to in the car.
It’s two single albums, one from Andre, and the other from Big Boi. I am an Andre fan to the heart. I always have been.. He is so flashy. His album is called The Love Below which I listened to tonight. So I am flying to school, literally, and after listening to “Spread” I am rocking out to “Hey Ya”… and then I hear a great lyric:
“What’s cooler than bein’ cool? ICE COLD!”
So I’m all, “hell yeah, ice cold…” right? And then I hear the best lyric on the album. This one tops it all. This is the motherfucka of all lyrics and this is the reason Andre 3000 rocks my mothafuckin world:
Shake it like a Polaroid picture…
Oh my God, I almost passed out in the car, going “hell yeah.. that is the shit!” And there I sat in my car, absorbed by these pounding beats. I was in my own little atmosphere of “Ice Cold”. I was frozen, enveloped by the sound. It was so sweet. Stankonia, their last album, was released in late 2000. I have been waiting and waiting since I first heard B.O.B. I am unsure if I will ever get above The Love Below and listen to Big Boi’s album. I am stuck. I will never be able to get out of this. I fear it will remain in my CD player for months.
And to you… yes you…
Andre says, “If you’re not the one, then you’re the prototype….”
