Are we all perhaps linked by invisible bonds? Do the actions of one affect others, even if those others are far away? Our lives and the universe itself may be all part of a single mechanism in which all creatures and events are 'entangled' with one another.

James Brown Has Moved On

Today "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business"--James Brown--"moved on". It's hard to believe that a man who, even in his 70's, always seemed so full of life could have left this life behind. But one thing is certain--his musical legacy will live forever!

I'm also certain that wherever "The GodFather of Soul" is now--he "feels good".

And here's some vintage James Brown:

Two Question Test

Had the day off from work (yay!) because it's "Reading Day" at the university (where my crappy job is). That's what they call the day before final exams begin, so naturally I'm "reading" web pages. Came across this test and wasted some time doing it--it's only 2 questions long. It did a good job of describing me, though.

The Observer
Thanks for taking the test !
you chose BZ - your Enneagram type is FIVE.

"I need to understand the world"

Observers have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.

How to Get Along with Me

* Be independent, not clingy.
* Speak in a straightforward and brief manner.
* I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts.
* Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable.
* Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity.
* If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place.
* don't come on like a bulldozer.
* Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy.

What I Like About Being a Five

* standing back and viewing life objectively
* coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
* my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
* not being caught up in material possessions and status
* being calm in a crisis

What's Hard About Being a Five

* being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world
* feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all
* being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be
* watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally

Fives as Children Often

* spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on
* have a few special friends rather than many
* are very bright and curious and do well in school
* have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers
* watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information
* assume a poker face in order not to look afraid
* are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict
* feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected

Fives as Parents

* are often kind, perceptive, and devoted
* are sometimes authoritarian and demanding
* may expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate
* may be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions

If you liked my test, send it to your friends!

Videos Of The Week

XBox360, Playstation3, and the Wii -- all these new videogame systems and I'm still haven't even finished many of my original Playstation games yet ! Guess I'm falling behind a bit.
I know I won't be getting a PS3 anytime soon 'cause $600 is more than my budget can handle.
And these clowns in this first video bought one just to smash ! Must be nice to have that much money too waste !

Now the Nintendo Wii is more reasonably priced and I might even consider getting one when my budget allows....especially since I never owned any of the Nintendo systems.
But as this next video shows, that Wii remote can be dangerous when not used carefully.

Here's a site that has pictures of other "Wii" accidents.

Oh well, maybe I'll just have to start saving to get the Playstation9 when it hits the market in the distant future, as this video shows.

Harold's Planet

Haven't been posting much lately as I've been stressed out, tired and kind of depressed, but thought I put up this cartoon as reminder to just "Be Happy".
Have a whale of a weekend, everyone !
