Weekend Update.

Hello out there. I thought I'd take some time before going out tonight to write a blog post, updating you, the reader, on my life and recent activities. Mainly, my entire life has been consumed by a bike accident that happened on Thursday morning before class. I got pretty messed up, and for the icing on the cake, I managed to hit a deer about 18 hours later, and now my car will be at a body shop for two weeks.

Here are a couple of pictures of me after the accident:

Fuck, this really


And before that, well, the week wasn't too cool either.

This week I started messing around with the API for last.fm and the API for Facebook - which I cannot figure out. I don't know how to work with keys and just don't get enough about programming to do anything useful with the Facebook API just yet. I have some basic plans though. I want to make the Favorite Music list on Facebook update with a user's last.fm weekly artist chart. I never list music on Facebook, because what I listen to changes a lot from week to week, and I have a suspicion that if I listed music I might pigeon-hole myself into some certain genre in some people's minds. Moreover, I think that it's ridiculous to have a list of music that's longer than the rest of your profile. No one can get a good idea of what you like if you list everything you've been listening to since you started to develop your own tastes. So yeah, that all is on the back-burner for now.

In 9 days I have a 10-15 page paper due that I haven't started. The content of the paper shouldn't be too hard, but I have to interview Best Buy employees. If you've ever worked at [my] Best Buy then you might understand why I am reluctant to do such a thing. Recall, I worked on the Geek Squad for a year. If I get strapped for cash (and take another bike fall, but this time hit my head), I might even go back.

Last night I went to a party with a bunch of people who I like. It was cool. Despite not having a car, things worked out because people were kind enough to make space in their schedule / homes to help me out.

Tonight, who knows.
