Or Kill Me / Boxing Air
« on: July 07, 2017, 11:36:11 pm »
To a friend:

I've been having a hard time coming to grips with losing you, Brother. It's hard to describe the feeling of losing a friend, it's even harder when that friend was your greatest rival.

Anyone that knew us knows: if me or J wanted to challenge you, you'd better say your prayers and make peace with whichever sissy-pants God you pray to. And, if we were challenging each other, well, you'd better head for the hills, because the fallout from the impact would hit harder than a fist-to-fist explosion that you only see in Japanese cartoons and off-the-wall kung-fu movies. We're talking some seriously seismic, skyscraper-shattering shit.

But now you're gone. Now I swing my fist, and instead of a brick wall impact, it's just air. There is no one I know that can fill your shoes. There is no challenge greater than attempting to outpace, outdo or outshine you.

What makes me even more furious is that you were dishonorably stolen from us by a cowardly lump of sub-human flesh that isn't even worthy of the act. There wouldn't even be any satisfaction in squashing them like the insect they are...

So here I am... Just boxing air. Come back and fight me you mother fucker. There's not one person on this planet left that's worth the smallest effort.

And for the rest of you, there will be hell to pay. I swear to fucking christ I'll cleave this planet in twain if you ever disrespect THE GREATEST WARRIOR THAT ANY OF YOU SCUMBAGS HAVE EVER MET, SEEN OR HEARD OF!

Now I feel like a Vegeta without a Goku, so you all better stay the fuck out of my way.

Or kill me.

Apple Talk / ATTN: Roger

So, you blocked me on facebook because I called you out on your howling into the abyss. We ALL get it, you get a major kick out of trashing people with different opinions. Hell, you're at it day after day, like you have something to prove. It's almost as if you're trying to convince yourself of your own bullshit with how compulsive you've been about it.

This has NOTHING to do about politics BTW, it is now more like a situation where the neighbor's dog won't stop barking all day. WE ALL KNOW what you think. You can stop now and move on to something else. We all know. I liked it better when you didn't sound like a broken goddamn record. But whatever, man, enjoy creating your own echo chamber as you block everyone that might think a bit differently. Play right into their hands, support that status quo, I don't give a shit. There aint anything I can do to stop you, but really think: what are you attempting to accomplish?

I'll tell you one thing though, it gave me a reason to come back here and post something.

...In case anyone one is REALLY bored. Me and my bass-player have been doing a weekly podcast every Sunday at 8pm, EST at http://www.twitch.tv/dimo1138. Past episodes are posted on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCz-mfOss4dFOG2MQayz5yfg

Currently, we are trying to raise money for a trip to New York to buy a golden donut, in order to become Illuminati confirmed.

Apple Talk / Music Suggestions
« on: November 02, 2015, 04:48:55 pm »
So, I'm looking for some suggestions for music to listen to while I'm writing. I'm looking for stuff without prominent lyrics, and maybe a little ambient as long as it's still actually musical. This is what I usually listen to: C418 and Geinō Yamashirogumi's Akira OST. They are both pretty varied, so try to give a few songs a listen to get a good idea of what they're like. I'm just getting a little tired of the same two artists, but haven't found anything else that is suitable. Any suggestions?

Apple Talk / Anyone interested in...
« on: October 19, 2015, 06:35:12 pm »
So, even though I've been really busy trying to find a job and a home while trying to still move towards grad school, I've found myself with a lot of down time, so I decided to revisit a novel that I had been conceptualizing for over 20 years.

Basically, it is a post-post-apocalyptic existential sci-fi comedy set in a deterministic universe with a style characterized by its Douglas Adams/Dave Barry-esque tones. I have three novels and one short story planned, but I am currently working on the first, which will have many chapters over the course of five books. I have a solid first draft of the first book done, and I'd like to start getting some feedback.

If anyone has the time or interest, I can email you a copy of what I have.

Apple Talk / Is this bullshit?
« on: October 13, 2015, 04:24:41 pm »
Due to certain conditions, it is looking highly unlikely that I will be able to attend grad school (at this point, It's looking unlikely that I'll be able to eat or have a roof). However, I've been hearing about certain countries that offer free grad school with courses taught in English.

Among them, based on the little research I've done, Germany seems like the best choice. BUT, I don't know if anything I've been reading is true, and if it is, I don't know how practical of an idea moving out of the country really is.

I know there are a few peeps 'round here that have much more knowledge than I do when it comes to stuff like this. So, what do you think? Free grad school in Germany: good idea/bad idea?

We've released our new album. You can stream it for free over at our band camp.

Also, I have a handful of promo codes for free downloads. If you want a code, PM me. I'll probably serve at least the first five people that ask.

Apple Talk / Long time no see
« on: May 14, 2015, 06:13:08 pm »
So, I've been crazy busy with school for the past, well, seems like forever. But, I'm done for the time being.

I've been assisting in teaching categorical and symbolic logic for a while now (the average student's score has increased by around 20 points since I've been teaching), and I've reconstructed a traditional logic model called the square of opposition to require fewer rules and to be over-all easier to teach. I mentioned a little something about it a while ago, but it hadn't been finished and I didn't want the word to get out until it was. But, it's finished now. The square hasn't been changed in over a hundred years, so it's a fairly big deal.  My paper is on the URI digital commons site, so I figured I'd drop a link if anyone was interested.

Other than that: Hi!

Apple Talk / Meatspace: The Final Frontier
« on: September 04, 2014, 02:26:39 am »
So, a few years back, Cram organized one helluva meat-up. We all chipped in and rented a house for a few days, and even though it was predominantly swamp yankees, we had guests from way out of state, and even a filthy foreigner. We played games, and drank clamato, and wrote shit. It was pretty cool.

Now, it's tough for me to travel, but I would totally be down to do something like that again; it's been too long, especially for those of us in the Prov/Boston area that don't really have a good excuse as to why we don't hang out regularly/tangent. I don't recall exactly how many people we had throwing down on the cost, but we weren't too many, and the individual cost was manageable, even for a useless student like myself.

All that said, is anyone down for round 2? If anyone is interested, maybe we can start spit-balling dates/places for next summer, eh? No?

Apple Talk / Shameful Self-Promotion
« on: July 30, 2014, 11:32:05 pm »
I've made a bandcamp for my band. I mainly set it up to get our music heard/circulated in a way that physical CDs just can't do. Some of this stuff hasn't been available in years, and it's all free to listen to on the site. If you're interested in punk/hardcore, check it out.

Apple Talk / Brush your teeth with a stick

Any one ever hear of miswak?

I haven't seen any studies or reports that have any particularly negative results, and I just got some in the mail today, and I'm really enjoying it. It'll be great for on the go, and it can take your mind off of cigarettes if you're a smoker. Plus, it tastes interesting and feels cool.

Apple Talk / Some Things I've Been Up To (Whether You Care to Know or Not)
« on: February 25, 2014, 02:24:49 am »
During my short time T.A.-ing for my logic prof., I have reformatted the square of opposition (a diagram designed to point out the immediate inferences of any logical statement, created by Aristotle and not updated since the 19th century) to require the memorization of fewer rules and to be more intuitive to new students of logic. In one day I have been able to take four students who absolutely BOMBED the quiz, and, through the use of my modified square of opposition (which I'm now calling 'The Dimo Calculator'), I was able to teach each student how to make immediate inferences without confusion, with a 100% success rate. This was achieved in no more than a half-hour per student (compare this to the many hours spent by the prof. with little to no results). I cannot stop thinking about it.

Apple Talk / Post BIP Revelations
« on: November 23, 2013, 03:10:56 pm »
Noticed some weird things after releasing the BIP. First, and least of all, the PDF on my scribd page was my 23rd upload. Completely unintentional.

However, something really weird happened, and it kind of gave me the chills when I noticed it. I had cut out some segments of the interior pages in hexagon shapes and pasted them to the cover. One segment was from Nigel's epilogue. Now, the epilogue is arguably the piece with the most positive takeaway, but, as I was examining the cover, I realized that the particular cut-out segment included in the hexagon portrayed a very different view. The only text visible in the cut out section is: 'advice: Don't listen. Go back to the past; There's nothing waiting for you.'

This was completely unintentional, and really creeped me out when I first saw it. But, I guess it goes to show you how something can look very different from actuality when only focused on a very small segment.

Anyhow, figured I'd share.
