Best Put

Relaxing is for the other guy. I may be sitting in front of the TV, but I’m not watching it unless I think there is something I can learn from it. I’m thinking about things I can use in my business and the TV is just there.

I could take the time to read a fiction book, but I don’t. I would rather read websites, newspapers, magazines, looking for ideas and concepts that I can use. I spend time in bookstores because 1 idea from a book or magazine can make me money.

I’m not going to go to dinner with you just to chat. I’m not going to give you a call to see how you are. Unless you want to talk business. Other guys play fantasy sports. I fire the synapses to get an edge.

That’s what success is all about. I’ts about the edge.

It’s not who you know. It’s not how much money you have. It’s very simple. It’s whether or not you have the edge and have the guts to use it.

The edge is getting so jazzed about what you do, you just spent 24 hours straight working on a project and you thought it was a couple hours.

The edge is knowing that you have to be the smartest guy in the room when you have your meeting and you are going to put in the effort to learn whatever you need to learn to get there.

The edge is knowing is knowing that when the 4 girlfriends you have had in the last couple years asked you which was more important, them or your business, you gave the right answer.

The edge is knowing that you can fail and learn from it, and just get back up and in the game.

The edge is knowing that people think your crazy, and they are right, but you don’t care what they think.

The edge is knowing how to blow off steam a couple times a week, just so you can refocus on business

The edge is knowing that you are getting to your goals and treating people right along the way because as good as you can be, you are so focused that you need regular people around you to balance you and help you.

The edge is being able to call out someone on a business issue because you know you have done your homework.

The edge is recognizing when you are wrong, and working harder to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

The edge is being able to drill down and identify issues and problems and solve them before anyone knows they are there.

The edge is knowing that while everyone else is talking about nonsense like the will to win, and how they know they can be successful, you are preparing yourself to compete so that you will be successful.

Avenue A and 11th Street?

#define private public

~~~ Phoenix - Too Young ~~~

~~~ Straylight Run - Existentialism on Prom Night ~~~
~~~ Head Automatica - beating heart baby ~~~

Moving from city to city in the past 2 years is starting to make me lose grasp of reality. Any one of those temporary settlements could have very well been a dream or just another fragment of my memory.
Returning back to Seattle from spring break felt weird. I guess thats when I realized being on the move so often makes you feel this way. Everything feels surreal.

Spring break was awesome. But I look forward to the next couple weeks just as much.


Gish isn't your average hero, in fact he's not your average anything...Gish is a ball of tar. Life isn't easy when you're a 12 pound ball of tar...

This is one of those games in which the developers lived with nothing but a vision to complete. Respect. Gish is an indie old school platformer game with some very innovative game design. The heart of the game (or programming) is the character Gish itself. Gish possesses the ability to stick to surfaces, slide in between cracks, and make small jumps. Gish is hard to control, but not impossible. The ball of tar is incredibly well balanced and acrobatic-like leaps can be pulled off. Momentum is key in this game. Although subtle, any true gamer will find this piece of art a pure pleasure to play and master. Just don't come and tell me this game is no good until you reach at least world 4.
I gladly payed $20 for it. If anybody wants the full version of the game, let me know.
