had i the financial means and freedom from commitments such as a certain club night to run on friday, i would emulate the inimitable [livejournal.com profile] mildseven and flee to peru on a whim...

but as i'm just as likely to be able to do that as wind back the hand of time, i guess right now i'd settle for a nice big rock to climb under.

the university of hip hop, never an institution to avoid notoriety has, yet again, left me almost speechless.

in the news today, the very real threat of its closure... am a mite concerned as to what'd happen regarding my degree & perhaps more importantly, the massive amount of debt i'm in thanks to it. ho hum, i'm sure i'll find out soon enough

curious about post modern architecture? click here for edification.
now, choosing one of the principal exponents of deconstructivism to design a lecture hall, however fashionable he/she may be is utterly retarded and paying millions of pounds for it illustrates [i think] quite wonderfully the woeful lack of cognitive function amongst the people running the university.

money well spent

...good job it's being posted at stupid o'clock in the morning, eh? o.O

been busy doing not nearly enough these last few weeks, some brief1 high/low-lights [chronologically listed thanks to pathological pedanticism]:

funker vogt gig: an indecipherable blur of alcohol induced fuzz... definitely had fun, but booze stole my memories.

slaughtehaus5: a most enjoyable evening, culminating in some "back to the slab" action. what sunday taught me: rice takes 7 years to cook properly :D

return of monday pool: a combination of my new found proximity to the oak and eva's enthusiasm for cue sports has rekindled the fires of addiction. :D

gravity stuff: arranged guest djs for next event; finished flyers, posters, etc. and even managed to get some printed [albeit for an extortionate amount of money] in order to pester people this weekend.

uni grief: more incompetence from the university of hip hop results in the threat of suspension from my course because they won't claim my fees for this year from my lea... a long[ish] story peppered with examples of why londonmet is a shit hole. fret ye not, recounting it now would make me too angry to sleep.

friday film night: much fun was had resulting in me wandering the streets of tottenham in the wee small hours of saturday

slimelight win: unexpected uwe but band banality canceled each other out. fortunately, a dose of mak magic mixed with max&simon tearing the upstairs floor up good and proper made dave a sated boy indeed.

head-state lose: self worth needs some fixing. feeling kinda lonely too.

sunny sunday: spent almost all day in martina & will's back garden with my hosts and jennifer & matt... spring sure feels like it's here at last :D

shock camden fun: post flyering drinkage with people prevented [or at least postponed] the onset of some bleak.

1: ok, so trade descriptions may beg to differ, but fuck 'em.... bunch of pedantic cunts :p

today i feel like yesterdays news... the cloud of bleak i've been attempting to avoid descended upon me despite my precautions [eating pizza yesterday and not sleeping at home]

currently in uni trying to rectify the mess that is my third year... relying upon the kindness of strangers in a bureaucratic institution is not something that fills me with confidence.

i really need a change of direction socially... the isolation that is my studio's probably not helping either.

i don't make new years resolutions (i resolved this on new years eve back in 2002) but if i did, more exercise and alcohol or other intoxicant induced interaction with strangers would be mine for this year.

i can't stand having a negative frame of mind, but seeing the positive side of things right now is proving most taxing

i've been angry before, sometimes i could even have been described as being very angry...

tonight, however, i am livid; incandescent with rage! furious is not a strong enough word. pissed off doesn't come close to describing the searing wroth pumping coursing through my veins!

in fact, the effort required not to destroy this keyboard in the process of writing this entry is display of will power i wasn't aware i was capable of.

my piece of shit university have given me two coursework assignments for the cisco element of the degree. one is tantalisingly close to containing sufficient information for me to be able to actually do the fucking work.

i say tantalisingly close, what i actually mean is it contains everything i need except the vital information : network addresses, number of subnets, routing protocols & dce/dte information.

the other one contains this line of text "This is a Cisco based module. The course works are available on-line and set externally."

which is not only the vaguest communication i've received from the university of hip hop, it's also fallacious to the point of the ridiculous: There is nothing on the cisco site, the lecturer's page for the module has a pdf named "Coursework," which i'm guessing actually has the information i need, except it's fucking encrypted. and we've not been told the bastard's password, so it serves only to enrage me more. it might as well not be there if we, the students, can't fucking access it!!

how the fuck am i supposed to submit coursework if i don't know what it is i'm supposed to be doing?!!

jesus fucking christ!

RIP stage6
daf: (quotes)
"I'm writing this message today to inform you that we plan to shut down Stage6 on February 28, 2008. Upload functionality has already been turned off, and you'll be able to view and download videos until Thursday."

it's a sad sad day for anyone who's come to enjoy the miracle that was stage6 or joox.

soppy clowns and katie are a delight.

feel vague and fuzzy... sleep is not far away :]

despite an almost burnt in mental positivity and a knowledge of its effectiveness, there are some days when everything seems like shit and the likelihood of being happy seems slimmer than that of a lib-dem government.
