It’s that time again…

It is the beginning of summer. This is the time when I get rapidly bored and promise to write a summer blog that almost assuredly won’t happen. Oh well. Qbix keeps this site alive, and I plan to honor that with a yearly post emptily promising nothing.

Did I mention we are going to PAX in September? Also, this is the last time I will attend Comic-Con. Maybe I will write some stuff…nah.

I am alive…

Well after a everything went wrong about missouri I’m now in Ohio at the Solberg owned Marina (my dad’s side of the family), waiting for some work to come my way. At some point I may go back to Cali, or back to Missouri to find a cheap house. We’ll see… I see no one has posted nuthing in a while. I hope that will change. Oh other big news. I had to sell my xbox and rockband as payment for the help received for my truck, and to make a little girl smile.

Something I thought qbix would like:

Well after looking up some websites from the “webby awards” to get some ideas for the “look and feel” of a friend’s website job I’ve been working on. I of course started to get side tracked. And here is one of the things I found on my journey. A german guy with a website called: “Jung Von Matt” and in it his experiment with virtual 3-d Tagging and Daim as the artist… and www.nextwall.net.

Dear Mr. Smuggy Apple “Genius”* Guy…

When I entered your store to find out why my pretty old Powerbook was suddenly running so slowly, I had no idea I had to engage you in a battle of wits in order to gain your respect and therefore “approval” for you to take a serious look at my laptop. I mean, I’ve taken this thing apart and replaced parts and gotten it up and running from being basically a 17″ paperweight, so I was pretty confident in my abilities. I figured that since you’re the “Genius” that you would know more about my Apple product than I would.

I mean, it was pretty unecessary for you to have the smug, “oh you’re a P.C. guy” attitude. I mean, I get it… You’re paid to be a “Genius”*, so you have to act holier than thou and like you’re the savior of the Apple world. I didn’t mean to step on your toes with a slight display of competence. It was merely a simple act of getting you up to speed so that we could jump right to the chase. I know you’re type.. The “have you tried restarting?” type. And I just basically wanted you to know that I’m not of the “no, I haven’t tried restarting” crowd. Your manhood was safe with me. I wanted no part of your Alpha-Apple status. I merely wanted a little of insight into Apple tech and how I could keep my old-school Apple up running smoothly.

I mean, if it was a battle of wits, I could no doubt hold my own. But trust me Apple “Genius”*, I was no threat to your fragile hierarchy. You can go back to impressing hippie chicks with “have you tried restarting?” and “let’s run the disk checker to see if there are any disk errors”her: “oh you can do that??” – “yes, it’s very complicated”her: “*swoon!* *eyes-a-flutter*”. I won’t tell the faux-rocker-edgy-i-got-this-tattoo-to-fit-a-persona-i-desperately-want-to-fit-in-to chicks that you STILL couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I mean, oh yeah… I totally noticed by your “hmmm… that’s definitely not good” comment under your breath and quizzical gaze at my screen, that you were dumbfounded. But I won’t say a word…

Your iEgo will remain in tact. I won’t tell your iPeers a thing.

Ass.

*-When I say “Genius”, I’m saying it in the most condescending tone you can imagine. Imagine the most condescending tone you’ve ever heard, then double it and add a little “angry wife/girlfriend” in… That’s how I’m saying it…
