Little Dead Girl
If you ran into someone who was supposedly dead, you wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about them, right? I saw someone at a halloween party this weekend who has been dead to me for the past four years. She once was my best friend for seven years, then things went sour and I killed her off in my head. This is what I do instead of holding grudges. Instead of thinking ill of someone who...

As another month comes to an end, I sit and reflect on the consequences of my life’s decisions, mull over the meaning of my existence, and contemplate the splendors that fate and the universe have in store for me. Just kidding. Mostly I’ve been sitting around watching M*A*S*H reruns and trying to grow a beard. But it has been almost two whole months since I took it upon myself to...
I’ve been slacking off. I haven’t been writing anything substantial, its all just stuff about music. Which is fine, but I’ve been neglecting other topics. So I’ll make it a point to write about non-musical things for a bit. ….when I get around to writing, that is.
calvusexcessus asked: Mr. Gus, i am looking for something musically. It is a wierd playlist but i want something that starts and ends on juxapositions and covers the middle ground inbetween, but it must flow! I.e. soft classical, into maybe like a jazz fushion, into a dance song or two, into punk, into metal... not exactly like that of course, but something that spans a wide range and still is cohesive. Go!
When I wrote this, I didn’t expect anyone to call me on it. However, someone has requested a playlist from me, and its proving to be a bit of a challenge. Stay tuned…
middlesibling asked: I really enjoy your writing style personally. If you do getting around to drawing something, please post it though. It'd be interesting to see.
Me Am Write Good!
Write. Write write write write. After I briefly fell out of love with drawing, I decided I wanted to write. I could never express what was inside my soul via drawing; I could only express what was on my mind at the moment. I tried photography, but I never considered that as a real art. I mean, all you’re doing as the photographer is seeing something, then capturing that sight with a...
….not really, actually I just want to make a comment about something. It seems like the popular way to promote what music you listen to is to post a playlist. Like, what 10 songs you’re listening to this week and can’t live without, or some silly thing like that. I have nothing against this, but that method does not apply to the way I deal with music. You see, I do not...
I know I’m late in complaining about this, but Tumblr recently “updated” the Customize Appearance feature. For some silly reason, it totally does not work for me. Not that I don’t like it, its just that it never seems to load, and there are some aspects of my page that I just can’t seem to access anymore. Maybe its my computer, I don’t know…. Question: Is...
I’m aware some stare at my hair. In fact, to be fair, Some really...– George Carlin, back when he had hair.
This past weekend, my sister went on a camping trip and she asked me if I could watch after her little dogs while she was away. I said okay, because she told me that all I had to do was walk them, feed them, give one of them medicine for a UTI, and hang out with them a while. She specifically said that if I wanted to stay the night in her house, I could. Turns out what she should have said was...
ARTIST: The Les Claypool Frog Brigade ALBUM: Purple Onion GENRE: Alternative Rock WHY YOU’D LIKE IT: I’ve been a huge fan of Les Claypool since I first was introduced to Primus in 7th grade. I had never heard anyone play the bass guitar like that before and I was hooked ever since. So after Primus went on hiatus in ‘99, I decided to keep an open ear for whatever...
Wake Up, Gus
I’m housesitting for my sister this weekend. This involves taking care of her dogs, so I am totally tuckered out. I’ll write something next week, I pwomise! In the meantime, I’m napping like crazy and just generally being a big ol’ cranky grump. I don’t want to leave you with nothing to do, so enjoy this. ~G.
I remember back in high school English class, we were learning about poetry. I think it was either sophomore or junior year, I don’t quite recall. Anyways, we had to write a lot of different types of poems, but one that a lot of people had trouble with was the haiku. Somehow the whole 5-7-5 thing was too much for some students. Our teacher told us that if we weren’t sure about our...
About Mind Tissue
I found out the other day that my blog, apparently, is too complicated and some people don’t get it. People read it and they are thoroughly confused as to why I write things that they may not always agree with. It seems that the things that I write are “biased and opinionated”, almost as if I am writing what I actually think rather than writing what you want to hear. This...
So. This whole “Occupy Wall Street” thing. I get what they’re doing, and it fills my heart with joy that Americans have finally gotten up off of their asses and decided to try to exercise a few of they’re rights and whatnot. And the first step in any endeavour such as this one is to get noticed. I think they’ve done that. Good for them. And they’re somewhat...
The 10 Types of Writers’ Block (and How to... →
Yeah, I’ve got a touch of the ol’ ‘Blockola myself. So instead of overcoming it and writing something new, I’ll just post a link to an article about Writers’ Block that somebody else wrote. Oh the irony. Its like art, man…
Who the hell quotes someone, then gives them credit? I thought the point of...– Me, just now, in my head.
Watch It, You...
Watch It, You… is just like CDs Nutz!, but about movies instead of music. TRACK 29 I remember a few years back, I saw a movie for free on YouTube called Track 29. It starred Gary Oldman and Christopher Lloyd and was produced by George Harrison, I think, something like that. Anyways, its about a lady who was raped at a fair and repressed the memory, and then like twenty years later her...
5 Followers? Hooray!
I’m fairly new to Tumblr. Due to me not wanting my friends to know that I do this, I couldn’t just come here and look for people I know. Instead, I didn’t worry about that and I did what I came here to do: get some stuff off of my chest. So far, I’ve had fun doing it. As King Agamemnon said, “I like Tumblr, I think I’ll stay”.* So, after almost a...
