Energy Drink Foolishness

On my final day of the workweek yesterday I was feeling great. My client presentation in Lake City went off perfectly and I was able to even talk to the owner a little bit about how he started and operated his business, which is very similar conceptually to my digital gauges website. After work, I went to Imo Sushi with Nick and Brian where we had a good conversation and a vigorous debate on religion. Our spirits were up and we even engaged in a wasabi eating competition (which gave us all chest aches lol). The three of us finished our sushi and sake then drove to Brian’s house to play Settlers of Catan and drink some more before we went out to the Ballroom in Fremont.

On the way to Brian’s house, we stopped and picked up a twelve pack of PBR and Brian also decided he wanted to get Rockstar, the energy drink. I don’t like the taste of energy drinks and I don’t like the way they make me feel, but I was in hell-with-it mood (see wasabi eating competition) and drank it anyways. I never really drink caffeine and by the time I finished the Rockstar and a couple of beers, I was feeling weird.

When we got into the club, I got introduced to a bunch of Nick & Brian’s acquaintances (mostly Microsofties and other finance folks). I made small talk, but the energy drink had made me start to feel disconnected from the world around me. Energy drinks are gnarly; studies have shown that people who drink them are multiple times more violent and aggressive than those who don’t. Rockstar may give you energy, but it also makes you feel a little alienated and uncompassionate towards those around you.

Now comes the entertaining part of the story: it was a little after midnight and I was on the dance floor dancing with random girls and sort of staring off into space when I spotted her. A beautiful tall blonde with an hourglass figure and a face to melt even the oldest balls, she was easily the hottest girl I’ve seen in a while. Entranced, I stopped dancing and walked up to her. “Hi. What is the difference between love and obsession?”

Weirdest question ever.

She looked at me a little confused and yelled “WHAT?” over the booming music.

“What do you think is the difference between love and obsession?”

The beautiful blonde’s girl friend was dancing with her from the back and pulled her away, but the blonde came back a moment later and said, “I think that love… BOOM BOOM BOOM”. I couldn’t hear anything she said, but smiled and nodded anyways. We continued to have a conversation that was like one blind person trying to describe color to another blind person for about ten minutes. I had no idea what she was saying to me. Her friend got bored of waiting and grabbed her hand and they went to the bathroom. If I had just danced with her and saved the crap philosophy for later, I would’ve been golden.

Moral of the story: Don’t drink energy drinks. They somewhat block your ability to engage with people and act like a normal person. Ordinarily I could’ve gotten away with a stupid question by making jokes or dancing or doing whatever the situation called for, but instead I felt like I was floating in a balloon on Mars.

Seattle Opera: Bluebeard’s Castle & Erwartung Tonight

Plato and a couple of friends and I are going to watch Robert LePage’s BlueBeard’s Castle and Erwartung this evening as presented by the Seattle Opera at McCaw Hall in Seattle Center. Afterwards, we probably will be headed to a hippy party to watch a far less classy funk band lol.

Generic Idiocy in Markets

I am sick and tired of hearing the same generic stupidity repeated over and over again about the markets.

  • “Housing prices will always go up”
  • “The stock market will always go up in the long run.”
  • “Houses are the best investment you can have”
  • “Bonds/CDs are the safest investments”

All of these statements are not bad ideas, however they are NOT absolute principles.‚  Too many people who are supposed to be in an advisory position (financial advisors, brokers, reporters, U.S. presidents) have really pushed these theories as if they were written in granite.‚  Not one of them is true all of the time.‚  Housing prices in certain areas have historically fallen without a bottom as an industry collapses, the stock market goes through lots of periods of recession and stagnation, houses can be a good or bad investment and there are lots of risks associated with bonds & cds.‚  The key is to be smart and do your research on each individual investment, keeping in mind the big picture.‚  Don’t be lazy and listen to the idiots who spout all these generic rules-of-thumb that just don’t work.

Beth was kind enough to send me the funny Mr. Novocaine video featuring the fingers below:

Finally: A Good Night’s Sleep

For the last week I have been unable to fall asleep for over an hour or more and I would wake up at around 6 am, unable to sleep further.‚  However last night I was able to sleep like a 215 pound baby.‚  An unhealthy part of my life was forcibly cut out yesterday and now I feel great this morning.‚  I had a very awkward date last night with a girl who turned out to have little real experience with the opposite sex… cracked me up because the last three girls I dated have been like jaded old men.‚  Anyways, off to do a client presentation in Lake City now, then meeting with Nick & Brian for happy hour at 5:30 at Imo Sushi if anyone wants to join us!

Rock Star Joel

Even former President Bush can play the guitar.
Even former President Bush can play the guitar.

I am extraordinarily talented at many things in life, from writing great blog posts to drawing purple dragons to creeping people out.‚  One area that I have been sadly lacking experience in though is in the musical realm.‚  My dad once tried to get me to play the trumpet in fifth grade, but I never learned to make anything other than a dying screech.‚  In junior high, I took a required choir class and hated singing Christian songs so much I never sang again.‚  However, I have begun to regret being unable to play an instrument as well as my white man dancing skills.‚  So I have decided to learn how to play the guitar.‚  Plato was kind enough to lend me his father’s guitar to learn on.

Yes, yes, I know.‚  Trying to learn to play the guitar at age 25 is like getting a giant permanent black marker and writing “Douche-Fag” on my forehead.‚  I think that I am doing it for the right reasons though:

  • I have worked hard to develop my analytical, writing and business abilities, but have never learned the first thing about music.‚  A whole section of my brain has never developed as well as it should have.
  • In order to dance better, I need to have a better feel for rhythm and beat.
  • It gives me a nice break after studying C#, ASP.NET and SQL all day.

A lot of guys who try to learn guitar just do it to get laid or are having a mid-life crisis and want to reconnect with their non-existent youth.‚  I have no such desires.‚  Women are plentiful and easy, my mid-life crisis is still brewing and I am the King of America.

My goal long-term goal is to be able to cover 10-15 songs well.‚  I am not dumb enough to try to write my own songs… I’ve seen too many people I know do that and make cringe-inducing screeching noises.

Song #1- “Leaving on a Jet Plane” by John Denver.‚  It’s supposed to be pretty easy.

Interview of Peter Pan Man (Randy Constan)

Randy Constan | Peter Pan Man
Randy Constan | Peter Pan Man

Previously, I wrote a post about Randy Constan aka Peter Pan Man and announced that he was kind enough to allow me to interview him for my website.‚  Below is the interview:

Joel: What do you do on a daily basis? Are you employed or do you participate in other activities?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): I’ve always been in high tech. Mostly electronic design and embedded software coding.‚ How old are you and what area of the country do you live in? Why did you pick that region?
I’m in Tampa Florida, currently 5-1/2 (I only count decades now), and I’m here because New York was too “freegin” cold!

Joel: Why do you dress up as Peter Pan and in other non-traditional outfits? Do you wear them daily or just for special occasions?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): I dress to express an androgynous and gender fluid personality. The central Peter Pan theme is mainly because it is a symbol of not growing up. It has always seemed to me that especially for males, society insists that an adult have a clearly defined gender, something normally not imposed on very young children (except by very ignorant parents). Therefore the character suits me well. Peter Pan also is a fairy tale character, and being a “boi fairy” is a notion that brings me joy.

Joel: Do you consider yourself a member of a group of a people who dress like that? If so, what is the group?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): No. While I’ve found many venues where I can express myself in this way, I don’t know of any group in which I could honestly say I’m one of many. Some groups with some shared interests, lots of costuming groups obviously, but I suspect the majority of others that might feel as I do might be very private about it, fearing rejection. Although I have no specific intent to create such a group, I do understand that what I’m doing is an encouragement to many, a testimony of God’s diverse creation (despite what organized religion may teach), and certainly it is a great joy to me.

Joel: What charities do you try to promote? Why did you pick those charities?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): The charities are mainly to underscore the fact that what I’m doing, at least at the moment, is truly a labor of love with no immediate monetary income goals. With the exception of the CD sales, 100% of all income from the website that exceeds expenses is given to Kid’s charities. The reason for the Kid’s charity emphasis is because it both relates to the Peter Pan theme, and because it parallels the wishes of the author of the original Peter Pan story, who gave the copyrights over to a children’s hospital in England.

Joel: Do you travel much?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Not as much as I’d like to someday. Never been out of the USA except to Canada.

Joel: I saw on your website that you were engaged to be married. Is this still on or are you married already? What does your wife and her family think of the way you dress?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): We’ll we’re a bit on in years for family concerns. Not many living relatives. But those that are with us, along with our friends love our outfits and the way we express ourselves. We’re planning to have the wedding sometime this year (2009)

Joel: Do you consider yourself heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual? Or do you identify in a different way?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): I’ve never had any physical attraction to anything but grrls. Strange though, I consider myself to have a strong feminine side and have often thought of myself as a boi lesbian. So you can see where the answer to your question is a bit multifaceted. Indeed, were we to have a society where all manner or gender, attraction, and sexual variations were at least out in the open and accepted, I can imagine a very much expanded vocabulary would need to evolve, to categorize them all.

Joel: When did you first start to dress as Peter Pan? What made you wish to continue to do so? How do people react?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Well as a child of the 60s, arguably a lot of us dressed Peter Pan like. But I suppose it wasn’t until the age of about 20 or so that I really began my journey into expressing the appearance I enjoyed, despite natural fears of negative reactions. As with anything creative a person does that is off the beaten path, reactions range from praise to disdain and ultimately this makes one realize that both are equally deceptive. No one should think more or less of themselves based purely on reactions or opinions. It also makes us continually re-examine ourselves and choose between being true to ourselves or retreat.. Of course the road less traveled is always the better choice in such matters. As to why I continue, for me that is akin to asking me as a guitarist, why I continue to play the guitar. In other words, from the perspective of the artist, there reaches a point where the “Why” questions don’t make sense to try and answer.

Joel: In your pictures, you appear very youthful and athletic. What do you attribute this to?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Well I’m sure a lot is genetics, which of course is the luck of the draw. Who knows why I still have a full head of hair while so many 1/2 my age are balding already. I’m sure being a bit vain makes me watch my weight more than some, but there again everyone has a different metabolism. I do consider myself blessed, but then again a heart failure could take my life tomorrow. I could jokingly say alcohol is a preservative, but don’t want to encourage self destructive behavior. 😉 I AM sure, however, that personal attitude must have a tangible affect on youthfulness and health, and am quite sure that those placing value on their child nature are likely to fare better physically than they would have otherwise.

Joel: How do you look at your life? Are you happy? Do you have regrets?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): I am happy. The only regrets I have, looking back, are the times I knew I should have asserted myself and did not.

Joel: What are your goals for the future?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): I’d like to find a way to do the things I like for a living rather than just a hobby. Music, costuming, making people laugh, writing, encouraging others, and designing wonderful gadgets, to name some of my interests. To that end, my fiance and I are saving our money, working to pay down debts, and get to were we are as independent as possible. I’m keenly aware of how work and obligations eat away at all our time, and create the illusion that we really have no time for our own dreams. In fact, we need to believe, pray, wish, dream, and then MAKE the time for what we believe in. It’s a lifetime endeavor.

Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man)
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man)

Joel: What do you consider to be the most formative time period of life? Why?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Can’t say. It wholly depends on your circumstances and health. Assuming you can feed yourself and have relatively good health, life should continually be better tomorrow, and the best time ever is always TODAY!

Joel: What level of education do you have? From where? Did you enjoy formal learning?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Only 2 years of college in New York. Beyond that I’m self taught at most of my skills.

Joel: Who would you consider to be a personal hero?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Jesus (the real one, not the one religion has created), my deceased dad, Robin Williams, Barack Obama, to name a few.

Joel: What music do you like? Any favorite artists?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Oh my god! Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery, Pink Floyd, Hendrix, Zepplin, The Moody Blues, Chopin, DeBussay, gee… I’m all over the map. I like rock, Jazz, and classical. But most of my favorites, as you can seem are one or more generations back.

Joel: Is there anything else you would like to share that might help me better understand you?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): Don’t swallow any belief system in its entirety, be it all of science or religion. Let no one answer the big questions in life for you, but find them out for yourselves. I could tell you, for example, that God is good, loves us all, and has set fourth the challenge to us, as a planet, to get along with each other. That’s what I say, but don’t take my word for it. Find out for yourself if God is real, and either way leave the question open to a greater influence, just in case you’re wrong. The answer is not in any book. And in any case, figure out what you’re here for, and make it a life endeavor to do so as much as you can. Few things are accomplished without first believing. If I can attain this level of happiness believing in such things a fairies, I’m quite sure many others can accomplish far greater good if they believe in themselves. And for a synopsis of my “message to the world”, please listen to the “Who Is PeterPan”, last song on my CD, on the music pages of my website. (If you purchase a copy, 20% goes to kids charities too!)

Thank you to Randy Constan for the interview!‚  Please support his charities by going here.

Sorely Mistaken

I owe my readers a big apology.‚  Recently, I wrote a blog post on how I thought “People Are Fading“.‚  Rarely have I been so sorely mistaken in one of my theories.‚  The very first line “Relationships with people have been one of the primary sources of joy in my life” was absolutely true.‚  Most of the rest of the post is garbage. I basically started to feel that I would be more productive if I spent less time with most people and cut some people out of my life.‚  You would think that someone who spends much of their day at work studying social interactions via a variety of social media would not make such a colossal error, but I did.

After a few weeks of living my life partially cut off from many of my friends and associates, my theory spiraled out of control.‚  Human need a certain amount of social interaction in order to be healthy, and I was avoiding my base of friends.‚  Instead of spending some time with many people and maintaining a healthy balance, I started to lean unhealthily on a few.‚  I ended up harming a few relationships in my life.‚  Fortunately, after a couple of days of awkward feelings of dependence and desperation, I figured out what a huge mistake I had made and moved to rectify it quickly.‚  Thank you especially to my friends Trent, Plato, Nick, Rachelle, Lori, Brian, Melanie and the others helped me regain my balance.‚  I am a very confident person, but occasionally I become too confident in my own strength and think I can the whole world on.‚  No man is an island and people need to maintain very strong social ties with the world around them in order to be mentally healthy.

To all of my readers, I apologize for advocating such an erroneous and misleading theory that I had not fully tested myself.‚  I use my blog almost like a diary sometimes and everything I write is stream of conscious- whatever I am thinking about at the time.‚  Please keep that in mind and also realize that sometimes I pick the devil’s advocate position on many topics to entertain myself.‚  As with anything you read, use your own best judgment to determine what the truth is.

Finally, if there was anyone who was hurt by me testing my retarded theory, I sincerely apologize to you.‚  I did not mean to do any harm, my mistake was made with the best intentions of trying to make myself a better person.
