I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps...

Fun trivia! Eric Clapton played lead guitar in the recording sessions of that song! It is his guitar who gently wheeps...

...and then he stole George Harrison's wife, but that's a whole other thing...

Ugh. Car problems are awful. (And wipers are both dangerous, if you lose them at the wrong time, and annoying- because they feel like such a small, simple thing). I'm sorry.

Tried to make little video editing stuff to relax...and what I've ended up is stressed because poop didn't end up fitting in completely, and even if at the end I managed to do it, it's probably still poop

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

Learning the hard way that all-nighters are not an effective way to to finish assignments anymore. I’m too old and the assignments are too hard...

My wife got up early this morning to try to get tickets for the Bikini Kill reunion show in LA, but they were bought up by scalers - er, um, I mean "legitimate re-sellers" (no, I totally mean scalpers) - within, literally, seconds.

Hey, they decided to do a second show... and the same thing happened again!

Right now, tickets ($40 at the box office) are marked up to at least $200, sometimes more.

Thanks, free market capitalism!

Man, I used to really like that guy. I felt like at times he was actually shining a valuable, critical light on aspects of so-called "toxic masculinity."

Now I feel like he's a hypocrite.

Yeah, he was the only one who went down that I was like really a huge fan of. So smart, so incisive, and so funny. And you’re right, ironically he had a lot of jokes about how guys make things difficult for women. It really hurt when this came out.

It's sad, because Bill Cosby felt much the same way. It always seems like it's the ones who seem to be making the most valuable contributions to culture, and seem to be using their position of celebrity to do the most good and shine a light on social issues, that end up taking the biggest falls; having the darkest secreta.

It's almost like these "actors" and "entertainers" are experts in creating false public personae...

Tell me about it. I went through the same thing with John Lasseter; the man used to be an inspiration, and now he's just another checklist on the many ways mistakes powerful men, and Disney, have made. I have a bad feeling I'll be going through it again sooner or later with Studio Trigger and Hiroyuki Imashi--I could accept Kill La Kill as a one-off thing, but Darling in the FranXX, the girls in SSSS.Gridman and Promare are really starting to make me uncomfortable.

Speaking of tickets, Weird Al is going to perform with a philharmonic orchestra in my city this August and I missed out on all the affordable seats. There's one B-Day gift off the list...

Aaaaaaaand that info (as I saw a posting on Facebook earlier for that event) has inadvertently caused me to deduce the city of my fellow Albertan. Without saying what it is, since clearly you seem to want to keep it private, I believe that you and I, sir, are natural-born enemies. Have at thee!!!!

Added in 5 hours 23 minutes 24 seconds:
That last few weeks have been really stressful. We got back to school after winter break and just hit the ground running. More homework than I’ve ever dealt with in my life, haven’t had a lick of free time. Finally it seemed like things were slowing down after I got in this giant assignment.

So today I had a date planned that I was really looking forward to, but she cancelled. Wasn’t her fault, it was a genuine excuse, but then as we texted after I said something stupid and now it’s weird and idk if I’ll get to see her ever after all. It was like the one good thing I had on the horizon in the near future. Well whatever, moving on, I check all my class syllabi, and guess what, there’s still a ton to do. I basically have to get six classes worth of material done this weekend, which is a lot. So I study from getting home to about 11:30 - which is basically what I do every single day.

Finally I decide I’ve earned a break, and it’s Friday after all, so I pop in Godzilla vs King Ghidorah. I’m about fourteen minutes in when my roommate comes in, asks what I’m watching, and then immediately suggests we watch Bandersnatch instead, that new Black Mirror thing on Netflix where you choose your own adventure. I’m really not in the mood, I’ve seen it before and I just want to chill out with Godzilla, but I’d already told him it was a great thing to watch with a buddy, and I’ve blown him off a lot recently for studying. I think it would have been totally fair for me to just say I wanted to finish my movie, but skreeonk me I guess I’m too nice, so very reluctantly I say sure. Then as we start it I find out he’s seen it already too, he just really wants to get a different ending. And as we go, it turns out I did all the opposite choices he did the first time, so we’re basically doing my version again. This guy is so disconnected sometimes - like, first of all I was already watching something. Like, it’s a shared tv so yeah he can ask to do something else, but his tone was just so like “I don’t respect what you’re watching so you must not either, of course you’re willing to drop it, let’s watch something new and cool”. Second of all, he just barrels along through this thing to get the experience he wants. I did end up getting a different ending than I’d seen before, and I guess I enjoyed it in the end, but damn I just wasn’t relaxed, I spent the whole time just being irritated at him but trying not to show it.

I dunno. I dunno what the point of that story is. None of it’s even that bad, I’m just feeling so strung out and worn right now from school and from a lack of a romantic life, and then everything today that was supposed to be good took a surprise crappy turn.

^ Man, I'm sorry to hear about all of that, mate. Sometimes even the little things just become such a drag and a tug on your life, and I've definitely been there myself more times than I can bloody count, trust me. But hey, maybe that girl you're talking to is the type where she brushes off the, "weird", stuff and thinks nothing of it? Women can be cool like that sometimes. I remember saying the weirdest and most awkward thing on the first date with my wife, and I genuinely believed that, "man, I just screwed this
poop up BIG time". And yet, she somehow just laughed and we carried on, and she's stuck with my ass ever since. Have some hope, mate, and if that girl doesn't respond back, then try not to sweat it too much; there's a proper lady out there for you.

And, if you're grinding hard on your studies and just want some time to yourself, bloody take it! Your flatmate should understand when someone just wants to chill and de-stress after a long day by themselves sometimes. And, next time, you pick the bloody movie and choose whatever skreeonking Godzilla movie you want. "No, Tim (or whoever your flatmate's name is), we're watching Son of Godzilla tonight, dammit, and you're gonna like it!" Assume your best T-pose and assert your dominance, Canuck!

In all seriousness though, mate, things will get better and easier for you soon; I'm certain of that. Hopefully you have a much much better day today ;).

Youch. That's a tough run you've had there. And sometimes, after a few huge frustrations and major disappointments, something as simple as, "I was going to watch this movie, and now I'm not" can just shatter that poor camel's spine. Happens to me from time to time, as well. You get through a lot of the really difficult things in part because you have some small, simple pleasures to look forward to, and missing out on them - particularly because they feel like so little to ask for - can seem like life's biggest middle finger.
