Well, since this is my first post, I figure I should tell you a bit about my blog. As the title says, it is the ramblings of a madman. Namely me. James. Nice to meet you!

Basically, the way I write my blogs is that I start typing whatever random thoughts pop into my head and see where they take me. Sometimes the transitions from topic to topic will be smooth, other times, it might be completely random. It's just the way my mind works.

To get us started, we're going to talk about piracy and the environment.

I really think that pirating music/movies/etc. is a fairly good way to contribute to the betterment of the environment. Just consider how many resources are consumed to make those CDs and DVDs, plus the cases for them, and then to ship them. Piracy is the way to go!

Realistically, piracy wouldn't be the best idea for it since you can legally purchase and download things from online sources such as iTunes, but it makes me feel better about it :P.

While we're on the topic of environment, I have a bone to pick with the companies that produce phone books. That is such a waste of paper! The same information can be just as easily obtained on the interwebs!

I have been having several flashbacks as of late. It all started when I popped in the Eiffel 65 CD that I bought back in 7th grade. After that, I'll hear a song, or someone will say something completely random, and suddenly I'm strolling down Memory Lane and stopping in every store on the block! It's been a very strange experience for me. Not that I mind. I'm actually quite enjoying it. I just haven't thought about those days in quite some time.

Where did my phone go?

I'm very excited to move in with Bryan and Vance. They are two of the best people I've met, and it's going to be a ton of fun living there. I just don't want to pack... Or actually do the moving part. Can't my stuff just magically appear over there? Where's the Floo Powder when I need it?

The entertainment center that I got from Travis is in a very poor place in my apartment. I have to shimmy past it to get from the front door or my bedroom to the living room. I want to move it so I can actually use it, but at the same time, leaving it there will make it so much easier for the move.

That is all I have to ramble about for the time being. This post is probably longer than most will be in the future, but I think that's appropriate for a first post.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Dood, you got a blog! Awesome.
    Um, I have to tell you, I have an opinion on piracy. As an aspiring author, I don't want my intellectual property stolen. Now, I dont expect to every get rich from my writing, but every penny counts. Did you know, that from a $10 paperback, the writer receives only about $0.40?

  2. In all actuality, I am not as much for piracy as I pretend to be. Especially with books. I just had a funny thought about how people downloading things would save many resources. The only things I actually download are music that I have purchased previously and lost/had stolen, music that I fully intend to buy when I get a chance, and TV shows. The reason I am ok with it on TV shows is that if I had TV service, I could be recording them myself anyway, so I don't see much of a difference. It will be even more ethical when I move because they legitimately pay for TV service.
