From a Random Review Article…

“하지만 뮤지션들과 마찬가지로, 댄서들도 꿈을 먹고 산다.”
(But like musicians, dancers live on dreams.)

― 김나형, “영화에 등장하는 뻔한 직업 & 별난 직업” (Cliche or Weird Professions in Movies)
after mentioning how hard a life most dancers lead, except for a few chosen ones

Is my dream still intact?  Has it not been swept away by the torrent of ordinary days?  Has my music ever degraded into some sugarcoated iteration of notes and chords that exist only to please one's ears, not one's soul?  Would I be able to summon a melody that moves a stranger's heart and leaves an imprint that lasts more than just a couple of hours?  I know I used to be.  Now, am I?

That made me shiver.  I guess I'm gonna think hard about it later tonight….

Dazed.  Dizzy.

A planning meeting in the morning is not good for a body and mind all drained by: A two-day emergency trip, including 17 hours of driving (3 hours of which has been spent in a rush-hour standstill) and 10 hours of web server work in a datacenter with ambient noise at 60dB 70dB or more; some more server work including studying an internal data format of 4.4BSD filesystem dumps and debugging a system tool that I shouldn't have to debug in the first place; routine workout; a couple of games of We Love Katamari; cleaning; trying to sit at the piano and record something but miserably failing.  And countless more things that my brain is too tired to remember.

Yeah, that sums up my weekend and this morning.

I wanna have fresh air.  Some nice change of atmosphere.  Like meeting a new person.  Having random fun.  You know, it's Halloween.  The question is, though, am I ready for that?  *slouches on the desk, muttering “Mmm, gimme a jolt…”*

If Something Tampers With Your Computer…

And installs a program that:

  • Provides no explicit means of uninstalling it,

  • Hides its presence completely, and

  • While hiding itself, goes all the way to modifying low-level behavior of your operating system…

That's gotta be a computer virus or something, eh?

It's a music CD, made by Sony. ]
Warning: Laden with technical details

Lesson of the day: Do not buy “copy-protected” music CDs whenever possible.

This Is Fresh

It's only 5pm yet it's already getting dark outside.  It just feels damn right—this is how an evening should be!

I love daylight-saving-free time.  :D

(Yes, I know this is a symptom of mild FOBinitis.  XD)
