Tying the Knot

Posted November 11th, 2008 (10:26 am) || Comments Off

Yep, I’m married now! DeAnna and I had a small but wonderful ceremony on November 7th, 2008. Other than the fact we are finally a married couple in the eyes of the state, one amazing thing happened. As a wedding gift, DeAnna’s parents gave us an anniversary candle. What’s amazing about it is that it was their candle they got 39 years ago but only used once. This is such an awesome gift from them I can’t really describe it.

Our ceremony was written by DeAnna and included something called the “rose ceremony”, which I had never head of before. Basically after exchanging vows and rings, we exchange two red roses to symbolize the exchange of our love and promise to use the symbol of the rose as a “I lack the words for this” message between one another. Given my personal symbol has always been a red rose and my favorite song is Lonely Rose (by Cusco), I thought this was very fitting part of our ceremony.

My Life Is Good This Week

Posted December 10th, 2006 (8:16 am) || Comments Off

Attention ladies and gentlemen!

My life is good. I don’t say this very often. Usually I’m griping and bitching and complaining and often using a number of colorful words to describe my life. Today however, I’m using the word “good.”

Ever since I got my first cell phone way back when they were huge and bulky and couldn’t fit in your pocket, ever since I found out you could have music as a ring tone, I have wanted one particular song for my phone. Unfortunately, it is a song that no one will make available for download or purchase as a ring tone. Ever. Anywhere. It’s kind of an obscure song really. In high school I discovered a new age group named Cusco. On their album Mystic Island was a song called Lonely Rose. Since I first heard this song, it’s been somewhat of a theme song for me. A symbol of myself. I won’t go into the reasons for this, but at the very least I wanted my phone to play this song when people called me.

Well, Friday I finally got myself a cell phone I could upload mp3s to. Yeah, I could upload by song and it plays. But for some reason, I can’t select the song as my ring tone. Turns out my phone, though it can play mp3s and can use mp3 ring tones, can’t actually have an mp3 as a ring tone. The mp3 has to be converted into some other file type first.

Fortunately, Nokia has this spiffy FREE software that will do this, and have it work specifically with my phone. Since I already had a microSD card for storing music on the phone, it was easy enough to convert this song to a ring tone, load it on the card and put it in the phone. YEAH!!! And now I finally have my song as a ring tone. I am happy. Life is good.

The Birthday Massacre

Posted November 10th, 2006 (7:33 pm) || Comments Off

I dropped by my MySpace, checking up on things there, and running through some of my friend’s spaces I noticed one of them had a song by The Birthday Massacre playing. I had never heard of this band. Well, I suppose I live under the wrong rock. In any event, I liked what I heard, so I went out and bought the album.
