met with the reverend of the church today about my struggle with the Jesus thing. he recommended a book which I will read.
In other news, my symantic Norton anti-virus was up for renewal in a week so I went to renew because you can’t really go with out daily live updates of worms and viruses at this point, really hourly at this point. Without it, you’re just asking for trouble. At the record company offices the other day every computer on the floor within an hour was getting attacked with this new worm, can’t remember what it was called, where you start receiving emails about your account expiring from YOUR OWN company. So we were all like what the fuck is going on? but of course Norton antivirus was grabbing them and quarantining them and I mean every computer on the floor all of a sudden was getting them. but this one guy didn’t have his anti virus software running in that hour and bam he was fucked. That easy. anyway, so I went to renew and they have this new one called Internet security which is an upgrade to the regular one so it covers popups and adware and spyware and spam as well as worms and viruses. You know how spam is very predicatble these days… it runs in cycles. Right now its prescription drugs, penis enlargement, cheap software, letters from Nigeria offering you a million dollars, sex tricks to turn on any woman, lottery winning notifications, etc… I’ve had this new upgrade running for about a week now and it recognizes and filters all of them…. totally cool. and I just have to comment that anyone who would burn a copy of this or try to obtain it for free is a total nimrod asshole fuckhead who’s not seeing the bigger picture. This software totally rocks. Works awesome. totally does the job. well worth the forty or fifty bucks a year for the thought and time and energy that they obviously put into it. I know some people still have that view that “if I can get away with it even though its illegal, then I can find a way to justify doing it to myself and others…” like they’ll tell you that they just can’t afford it or whatever but that they know its essential so that’s why they burned it from their friend or coworker or whatever. but that is total lack consciousness speaking there. that is a loser who wants to stay a loser. Eat out two or three times less this week or month and give these guys the measly forty bucks they are asking for this software. You’d expect the same respect. honestly, and respectfully, after seeing this software in action for the last week, I feel honored to have paid them and that they created this for all of us. It just rocks. Nuff said.
last screening: Harold and kumar go to white castle. This a classic comedy! Effing hilarious! This is must see. For what it is mind you. just rent it.

Wanted to ask you for your expert advice on doing a short-term volunteer service. Any organizations that you are familiar with?
Hell yeah. covenant house is a great one down there because it’s a home for runaway kids who come from abusive homes so you get to hang out with junior high and high school kids who really need attention from normal people who act like they’re cool and care. Very rewarding place. I volunteered there in college. you’d be good because you play music so even just jamming with them for a few hours in the cafeteria would be awesome or teaching them chords and stuff like that. you can also do more regular stuff like paint and sweep and shit. I did a lot of that too. Ps dude I am writing the best marc bolan type of song right now… I felt freedom when you said no. It has such a cool cosmic dancer vibe… even has a few “oh no’s”
