...I am sure of several things. 1 of them is asymmetric information and the other is there is two sides to ever coin. Therefore I am sure that listening is the key of a relationship, any group, and any society. Even if you are sure you disagree, letting people speak is the best way to allow communication run free and not be trapped within any sort of barrier whether it is artificial or very tangible. Flesh and skull are barriers without communication and listening, even language becomes a barrier when we cannot express what is inside. This is why humans have always found themselves creating new things whether its art, or buildings, or bridges, or machines, or software, even during sex we express ourselves in ways that language cannot.

It is important that we listen…even when we don't understand.

Argument that comes from anger comes from confusion and not confidence.

I'm tired but not tired enough to make myself want to sleep.  The University is back at kicking my ass. I have been attempting to divide my time between my left and right hemispheres, trying not to stress out anymore. Lighting candles and incense. I've been working on some interesting stuff now that I have replenished my supplies. I tend to use every last bit until they run out, forcing myself to get more and more creative with how I use mediums until I'm made to go spend green (plastic actually) and start over. Chance operations have always proved successful for me. I hate waiting for things to dry. I'm very impatient and spur of the moment since it is a single precise moment I want to capture…not a 3 day moment.

Well Spring Break has come and gone and it was fun while it lasted although I did not do much but move my things across the state.

I did have an opportunity to do some artwork while out of class, I will be sharing these pieces throughout the week.

Take care my friends!
One of my photos, "The Tiny Life" was featured as "Photo of the Week" on Whim, Radford University's online magazine. See it here www.radford.edu/~whim/

A giant welcome is extended to all those visiting from Whim!
Several life changing decisions have cut stress in two.   Concider me a more relaxed individual at this point.  Although I am still on the J-HUNT.  
I have been incredibly busy this week studying for 3 400 level Econ midterms.  So I really havent added much up, sorry! I am hoping to add some things this weekend after the weight has been lifted.

"Listen To Me," the first track off of my new Media Violence record "The Infinite Sequence" debuted tonight on WVRU, 89.9 in Radford, VA.  If you would like to download the track please do so at studio.beachroadrecords.com/d1…
The orders have started pouring in for my new album.  Probably because I always give stuff away for free.  I guess that means that Im the opposite of a corporate whore.  Because if I was a coporate whore I would be a completely aweful one.  Buzz buzz buzz.  Can you believe Im a business and economics major?  Heres some free stuff.  I am not a whore.  How do you get people to talk if you make them have to buy stuff they have never heard?  I don't know...Anyway if you would like to know what on earth im talking about: studio.beachroadrecords.com/d1…
I believe that I have spent every day, every moment of my life, recording my living consciousness.  Then, hopefully when I'm dead someone will remember me.  It's not that I'm searching for meaning, or control…in fact I'm probably looking for the disable control feature in my brain.  The world looks different to me. Can this be a fact? Or does the world look different to everyone?  4 billion eyes, all with different efficiencies and deficiencies.  Mine is color.  Nothing is black and white but the shades all blur together.  I find myself attempting to make up for life's deficiencies by developing a complex.  A complex that involves me trying to record each and every feature of my life whether with sound, vision, or word.  And then it all disappears.  Disappears into notebooks and compact disks, and gets trapped in 1's and '0s.  Then what? Does someone listen?  So I have to pay you to listen? To read?  To try to see the world that I see?  Quite impossible.
