EpicMegatrax writes more bullshit

oh, really, it's kind of like, momentum. I wrote a load of
stuff in this thread a few years back and then I have a bit
of a brainstorm with loads of relevant thots I want to get
down and may as well put it with the rest. just, like, "oh,
this. need to file it in my bullshit thred"

usually no one but belb replies so even some casually
sarcastic comments come as a surprise to me

"I realized Spock would never think this way," he said.
"With Spock I learned the importance of honing your own
programming. There was a culling of thoughts that were bad
for my preparation for the role. That really came from
always thinking, 'What would Spock do?' As an actor, you
have to weasel your way into minds that are not your
own."

early this morning, i wake up before falling back asleep for
a bit ~ i'm thinking of "inspection (check one)" by
leftfield. i'm playing it back in my hed and just admiring
the roundness of some of the noises -- and i'm thinking, i
never noticed how good that noise was, how... round... and
then i'm laughing at myself because i'm just playing it in
my hed so some part of it must have been aware already

so, with pandemic, whatever, i haven't been driving as much.
seeing myself write this, actually, i should get on that.
keep it in shape. i have to drive to the office this
weekend, to get the stuff that's been sitting there for
weeks, and it's in the city, and are my mechanisms rusty,
because the city is god level difficult driving?

this is on my mind as i drive out to the store earlier
today. however, to my relief, the mechanisms seem fine.
eager, even. i am playing franz ferdinand and singing.
singing takes a certain chunk of my mental horsepower. when
driving is simple, singing is fine. when things get
complicated, the singing has to be de-prioritized. i am
singing to franz ferdinand and there is a giant, 5-story
tall crane for no the fuck reason and a cop directing
traffic one lane

the singing stops, the brakes are applied, and i am focused
totally on navigating this novel situation. i am not even
thinking about how my mechanisms are performing

cop waves me on. i wave thanks. i resume singing

i think all this does get into the ??? line that
self-driving car technology can't quite seem to get itself
across. self-driving cars can drive like i drive when i'm
singing, or analyzing how i'm driving... but self-driving
cars can't analyze how they drive while they drive i dunno

google maps street view, is there some alternative? because
i need something like this, but i also want to hit it with a
wrench. i am clicking along a street in street view, trying
to see where the turn lanes are, and suddenly, i am
teleported into a tunnel underneath the street i was
currently on. it reliably happens anywhere on a particular
stretch of a particular street. i have to be careful not to
click too close, because then i have to click back, and lose
the ten or thirty seconds i spent navigating from the
starting point, at which i dropped the little yellow man --
awkwardly, never sure if the green target zone will actually
take me where i want or teleport me underground or some
shit

i have a whole battle plan. i've been thinking about this
for... well, embarrassingly long. over an hour. studying
maps. there's a garage for sure-thing parking, but, no joke,
the fucker will cost me at least $30, so this is an absolute
last resort. parking on the street, kinda iffy, will things
be deserted? i use maps to scout out which sections can be
parked upon. it's actually really weird, with three separate
zones with different rules. and there might not be any
spots. so next option is illegally parking in the alley
behind work, because i'm not going to be here long, but
could i get towed? will the back entrance be open, in which
case i'd really rather park out front on the street? if i
park out back, will i have to walk around front, wasting
valuable illegal parking time? will i have to submit to a
temperature scan at the door, or at the reception desk?
because i was warned they would definitely take my
temperature before letting me in the elevator. i have
pre-selected a box of the right size for my desk widgets. my
stretch goal is a second trip for the monitors; i have
pre-selected an appropriate screwdriver to de-mount them
from the swinging ahms

this is all pretty much a security blanket to keep me from
melting down into a pile of anxiety and/or rage if there is
an unplanned snag

there is more including planned routes to loop around from
the back of the building back to where the garage is, and a
backup for that in case i can't just drive across three
lanes of traffic, there are lights but i do want to have a
backup in case it's hopelessly busy. i have picked which
highway exit based on which direction i want to approach the
area and

for you guys, here's how it went ~

i cannot tell you how long it took my hair to dry. i really
need to cut my hair. i generally don't feel hungry in the
mornings, but i ate some ground beef with taco flavoring,
cold, because the next couple hours would require protein,
but i wasn't really in the mood to go to the effort of
making a proper burrito. besides, i slept in until 1pm, i
want to get this over-with before evening

driving to the city was actually a lot of fun. singing and
tearing down the highway. but as you get a few miles over
the city line, the driving gets a lot more mad max, and more
max concentration is req'd.

in the city itself is far worse... boston is full of one-way
streets, pedestrians are all "hey, i'm walkin' here"
(something i will plead guilty to myself), cabbies dgaf,
etc. etc.

this is why i planned so thoroughly. parking is always iffy,
the garage costs $40 or some shit, and i only need ten
minutes. and there are lots of one-way streets and it's easy
to slip up and wind up in a pit of ffffusdfig god dammit
where am i. and this is sheer hell to me. even the idea that
it could happen bothers me quite much, and so visualizing
the whole thing in my head, multiple branches of
possibility, forming a three-stage parking plan based on
spot availability and vibez, with planned routes to navigate
between each spot without having to worry, we feel much
better now

the city was actually quite quiet, carwise... but, prime
parking choice was filled up. i made a snap decision not
planned upon to park illegally a bit of the way down. ran in
with my box and my screwdriver. getting in was no hassle, no
temperature check. but the elevator does not give me a
choice of floor, it takes me to the wrong floor, and all the
doors are locked. i start cursing audibly. then i take the
elevator down to the proper floor, and my key card works

i hastily bung all the stuff into my box -- fit is perfect;
nailed it. i want to take both LCDs home, but this will
require two trips, and i am parked illegally. my planning
kicks in: they are mounted to swingy arms. if we can't find
the plastic stands, there's no point in taking them home,
because they won't be able to stand on their own. there is a
giant box of electronic crap, old laptops, phones, docks, in
the corner, and, having worked here a while, i know about
it. i go dumpster diving, and reject the urge to raid it of
unrelated goodies. i seriously could. no one's here. no
one's been here in ages...

but, no, we want monitor stands. the only one i find is
clearly for a very different one. this is for an HP beast,
not a viewsonic plastic job... but, no, the bracket matches
the swingy arm, so this will work, i suspect. i cannot find
a second. i don't want to steal anyone else's monitor stand,
so here we are at a good compromise: bring back one LCD, i
can carry it on top of my box, keep it to one trip.

i leave a bottle of beer, candy, and other goodies i do not
wish to take into a hot car at high speeds on a table,
despite the sign admonishing me to keep work areas clear
when not in use. i hate that sign.

the door says ENTRANCE ONLY but i just waltz through it like
a boss, thank the desk attendant, and i'm out. as i pull my
car out into the fray, two cops turn the corner and begin
strolling up to where i'd been parked

the drive back was fun. i am having a beer now

i have been working on this stupid track most of yesterday
and a bunch today and people will say "i wish it was longer"
but jeez i'm not even sure i'll finish it today, i have work
tomorrow

there are a thousand compulsive little edits; getting into
manually editing volume slides/levels is the best/worst
thingk that happens/d to my milkytracker. it's much better,
but i am also driving myself crazy, now that i have
committed to three samples for the entire track, and lots of
painting like, i guess, MIDI echo. half the track is ghosted
out. there's like an anti-buildup

why do i do this to myself. halp

you got yr process man. it maddens you slowly but it works

when i was making tracks i just kept using paste-listen-undo
over and over on samples, nudging and dropping markers
through the ever-lengthening master wav. the gathering of
the samples themselves was a whole other deal but having a
nice big samplebank was key. you keep it stripped back. i
respect that

ok upon some reflection ~

i actually like getting lost in some stupid maze of details
fapping around in milkytracker. the problem is that i want
that to last a few days, maybe a week for a proper track,
and instead i always have work. i wrote that, having taken a
few extra days off around july 4th with the explicit intent
of getting a bit of music done. i lost two days doing the
normal weekend stuff that i had to take care of, shopping,
then i was going pretty good and suddenly it's the night
before i have work again and i'm already up too late and
this track could be more but even if i stop here it still.
needs. moar

i would contrast this to writing an actual songy-song. i
have a small library of made-up nonsense songs that i sing
to myself as i do dishes and whatnot. they just go how they
do and you riff around with it and there's no staying up too
late. i have to move. i am trying to see if i can get
someplace with more recording potential. i am shy about
singing, but such classics as "indoor trumpet" and "what
'cha gonna do 'bout scones?" must be heard by the internet
community

good lord, the discord has been getting the good shit as of
late. how will this thread ever top 1000 posts. i will now
vaguely summarize the month of august

on july 30, i leave my check on the washer for my landlady,
as we have done reliably for almost two years. later that
day, i am out for a smoke, and she tells me that she is in
negotiations to sell house. but, don't worry, i can just
stay on as a tenant

the buyers are the religious institution next door that have
been driving me nuts for months. they set up a playground
for screaming children right outside my window and have
aerobics classes once or twice a week at dinnertime; the
same lady who encourages the kids to scream by going
wooOOOoo now doing the same irritating woo, amplified by a
PA system, over shitty pop music, and my immediate reaction
was: i think i'd rather a change of scene

she could not seem to fathom it; a thing that would
eventually become an infuriating pattern: but why? why
wouldn't you want to say? this first time, i foolishly gave
her a pass -- if i was 23 and still drinking heavily, i
would have torn into their aerobics class and told them to
shut the fuck up months ago. no, instead, i told myself that
covid is tough for everyone, and bought noise-cancelling
headphones. and i get two weeks of peace before this
bullsh-

the first two weeks of august are sheer hell -- the water
gets shut off with no warning. i have to park on the lawn
because of the giant dumpster in the driveway, and a tree
almost falls on my car. the inspectors are coming at 9 and
11, and i wait until 12 for the 11 guy and she texts back
"oh yeah he already left." 2pm it's getting warm and it
turns out the first inspector who did show up broke the AC

"but i called someone to fix it right away!" she complained.
i responded: i still had to miss more work to interact with
the guy fixing shit, the shit that would not be broken in
the first place, if not for your fucking inconsiderate
horseshit. but, you know, i said it in a polite and socially
acceptable way

trying to work as shelves are being power-unscrewed;
hammered out. vibrations go right through my chair and into
my ass and noise-cancelling headphones will not help you
now. having a mild panic attack every time i see the
handyman show up: what's going to happen now? being woken up
at 7:30 in the morning to find a guy measuring my front
steps for carpentry work

she told me i had until october first then a few days later
she tells me she's closing september 9th, but, for the fifth
time, it's ok, you can stay on as a tenant -- and for the
fifth time: no, no, fuck no. but politely

i keep asking her: the fuck happens to my lease on Sep. 9th?
and she just stonewalls me and tells me shit like that i
just have to have faith that god will work everything out.
and i'm like: you fucking dolt, i don't need faith in god, i
need actionable information. and you refuse to tell me shit.
and you are driving me nuts with construction and
interruptions with work and now you are having a fucking
family gathering right below me with the 30yo twat in an
extended pickup who is wearing a sports jersey and a
baseball cap with the cap backwards and are you going to
give me covid too

eventually, finally, she says: oh, yes, you also have to
have everything completely cleared out by sep. 9th -- but
you can still stay on as a tenant! you can have my
apartment!

it took great strength of will to not tell her to die in a
fire just then

at this point, i just want to be done with it. i try to get
her to just refund last month's rent upfront because shit is
all first+last+deposit+broker_fee right now, and i could use
the money -- but it's more than that. i want an agreement
sorted out w/rt my exit so i do not have to interact with
her ever again other than to perhaps throw the keys at her
from a significant distance. but, no, of course she will not
make it that simple. thanks to her purported faith, i
probably will get my money back, but it would have been so
much better to just wrap things up and be out of each
others' hair.

i spent four or five hours today packing things up; tearing
out shelves. at least that much of it is straightforward:
like, finally, something that is clear and obvious and i can
just start working on it rather than spinning my wheels
trying to understand what. the. fuck. is going on. a
thunderstorm kicks up and i get quite into things. most of
my shelves are cheap walmart shit and will not survive the
mood, so i elect to dispose of them in the driveway dumpster
rather than have to cart them off myself somewhere, later,
in a panic.

i grunt over a particularly shaky 7ft walmart special to the
stairs, and almost lose it. then i think: that was almost an
accident, and simply let go of the shelves. they hurtle down
the stairs and leave a small dent in the door. the door is a
piece of shit, it has been since i moved in, it has lots of
dents and it always sticks

then i went down and vigorously threw it down the next set
of steps, and it blew into pieces. nice, now i'm being
polite about use of dumpster real estate -- not shelves,
just stacked boards. thinking similarly, i hurl slats and
fragmented particle board into the dumpster, resulting in
thunderous clangs, as rain pours and lightning: this will
save a lot of space in the dumpster. and i hope the noise
bothers you

reminds me of my uncle smashing everything to bits when he
cleared the grandparents house. i get it at some point you
just want to be done with it. picked up lots of good
furniture from the streets though. counting quickly there
are 6 major pieces we got for free or under 20€, which
would otherwise have burned. mostly oak cupboards and
tables. refurbished some by sanding or varnishing, others
were just in perfect condition with lovely carvings. people
just seem to refuse the old look and prefer to buy
rectangular plywood, which doesnt last 10 years before it is
trashed for good and still costs more than classified ads.

oh, no, it wasn't quite like that -- i mean, yes, i want to
be done with it, but that wasn't why.

no, i have spent months resisting the urge to tell the
religious daycare center slash open-air aerobics venue to
fuck off, die in a fire, if i hear that fucking aerobics
class one more time i will i come stand in the middle of it
and smoke a zigguraut and get a stiffy as you all have a
conniption.

similarly, with my landlady, well, there were some moments
where i got a bit heated -- two of the three times, it was
actually just, like... i've tried everything else with this
old battleaxe, maybe if i actually raise my voice a bit some
of what i've told her ten times will finally sink in... and,
no, that's no good either. it did feel nice, however, and
that's more where we're at.

for mental health reasons, i've been making a list in my
head. i have this vision where i'll hand over the keys,
she'll say something falsely polite, and i will reply: die
in a fire. it will be sharp and quick, and it will take a
moment for what i've just said to register. when it does,
she'll start prattling on about how there's no need to be
rude, at which point i'll apologize: oh, i'm sorry, then
fall off a cliff. this will still not be good enough, and
i'll get more prattling about being rude. so, i'll try
again: oh, i'm sorry -- fall asleep at the wheel, then drive
off a cliff. step on a nail and die of gangrene. eat an
expired tin of beans, and die of botulism. you get the idea

i've said none of this; nothing like it. i may never say any
of it. but she's been driving me to wit's end with the
noise, the disruptions, the constantly shifting goalposts,
and fussy bullshit. and i've held my temper. but, then, with
those shelves, i finally had a proper outlet for my feelings
and throwing them down onto the brick and then hurling the
bits into the metal dumpster with great gusto and making a
tremendous racket, you know, making efficient use of the
dumpster, least i can do to help

inevitable.

my natural disposition is to rain down flaming revenge, but,
yes, i've shot myself in the foot doing that a million
times, and i have to stop this shit, and what should our
revenge policy actually be? where i landed is this: revenge
is a waste of our time on planet earth, but if i don't
really have to go out of my way for it, and there's no real
risk of consequence, then go for it

but, yes, now i have the reverse issue, that you describe.
when she first start saying she was selling the house, she
was like "i'm showing your unit in two days it has to look
nice" and i was like: "that's not very much time, could you
dela-" and she cuts me off, saying "it's the weekend, you
have time!" and she would do this sort of thing over and
over, dismiss my concerns and disrespect my time. but i
still busted my ass and cleaned it up and she was quite
satisfied. in retrospect, i should have not done jack shit
for her, i should have started looking for a new place
instead. but, still, be polite about it

the house is an old house with some old house problems....
but, my new landlords seem wonderful. my realtor, never one
to mince words said, "they're both kind of dweebs, but, you
know what, you're kind of a dweeb too, and i think you guys
could actually be friends." i had thought more or less the
same thing, admittedly without the dweeb part.

during the negotiations, my realtor texted me back, and
asked, "do you smoke?" and i'm all shit shit because... i
guess, my landlady dimed me out when they called her? but,
anyways, somehow it became known, and i'm pissed. i quit for
months, but the playground with screaming kids drove me back
into it: i can't take this, i want to go buy some whiskey. i
went and bought cigarettes instead, and, well, it's not much
of an excuse, but it did seem like the less self-destructive
option. i texted back as such: that's a habit i'll leave
behind with this place.

signing the lease, the wife half of the landlord half looked
me in the eye and said, "we're so happy you don't smoke, we
really appreciate it." it was one of those messages in a
bottle, and when i uncorked it, it said: we've found out
somehow you're about to quit cigarettes and we thank you
very much for doing so." it was actually very nice -- if i
kept up cigarettes there, i'm sure i'd get a proper threat,
but instead she's going with "i appreciate what you're
trying to do." a threat would be just as motivating, but
this was much sweeter.

so, i wake up this morning, and i hold out as long as i can.
i finally go out for a cigarette, and the idiots in the
religious institution parking lot are a bunch of 30-50yo
people throwing a ball around, yelling, and hitting each
other with pool noodles. "huh, that's probably not proper
social distancing," i think, and light up my cigarette. two
minutes later some 50yo fatty walks towards me and starts
wheezing and hitting his inhaler and i feel the heat of lots
of people staring at me. "that was a good cigarette," i
think as i put it out and go back i

over many years, great progress on things like: not letting
anyone know how furious i really am, making smalltalk
without going on elaborate tangents, and generally coming
across as a reasonable, functional person.

one thing i really need to improve on is being neighborly.
it's stressful and complicated for me; so i tend to just
hide and not really get to know the neighbors. i am not a
bad neighbor, so much as an invisible one, when i should be
at least attempting to network.

case in point is today: a lady from one of the other units,
whom i'd barely ever spoken to, in two years. her unit is
right by landlady and i made the assumption that she was
being kept in the loop much more than i was, because they
live right together and probably talk more.

today, i realized i'd missed a bit. she has two kids, and
she's in the driveway, building a table for a grill because,
fuck this shit, she misses grilling. hey, cool, from the few
brief interactions, i never expected a proper maker mindset.
"apprentice!" she yells at one of her kids, when he's slow
to hand her the power saw

later, i'm back out, going to my car to go out to the store,
and we have a proper talk. turns out, she's been going
almost as nuts as i have been. she's waffling between trying
to move with two kids vs. what the religious institution
next door will do the day they sign over ownership. we
discuss our nightmare scenarios and we've actually thought
of a lot of the same ones. she has a storage locker and i'm
all yeah i finally got rid of my storage locker with this
place and i was praying not to have to get another

so, yeah. that was a good talk that made me feel much
better, and, this round, i will try to talk to the neighbors
more. today was a good start, the lady next door clearly
smokes weed and her beagle wandered over to me and we got
along

reason or another people here worry about me sometimes. my
current issue is that the internet is not working at my new
place and i have to work at lewis's place and he will
suddenly start talking about how we need to build a
hovercraft or something and i currently do not have much
ability to zilty aside from fighting with the voice
dictation on my phone

this motherfucker has been a twat with me from a height in
the past, costantly bumping the threads with my most
embarassing fuck ups and now that he found the Virgin Mary's
compassion i have to feel empathy

my previous residence, the landlady had a handyman who would
come over to fix stuff; his name was marco. new place, they
also have a handyman named marco who comes over to fix
stuff, but it's an entirely different marco. in conclusion,
your name is marco, you should clearly be a handyman. you'll
need a white van, some tools, and a flexible schedule

I was going to be a handyman until corona took over, the
company that was going to hire me instituted a hiring
freeze, that is why I'm cleaning knobs for a living
