I'm John. I am an engineer by day and a guitar nerd by night. This is my personal blog. Here you will find mostly guitar and science stuff with a dash of anti-state politics and personal rambling.

… And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

I just killed my first student loan. It was a mean ol’ bastard with an 11.75% interest rate. Also I’m moving back to Boston in exactly a week. I couldn’t be happier. 

I just watched some videos from This is Hardcore and I’m actually dumbfounded. I obviously love heavy music, but hardcore culture is barbaric.

This album will forever be one of my favorites. 

The absurdity runs deep: America is using American military equipment to bomb other pieces of American military equipment halfway around the world.

The reason the American military equipment got there in the first place was because, in 2003, the US had to use its military to rebuild the Iraqi army, which it just finished destroying with the American military.

The American weapons the US gave the Iraqi army totally failed at making Iraq secure and have become tools of terror used by an offshoot of al-Qaeda to terrorize the Iraqis that the US supposedly liberated a decade ago.

And so now the US has to use American weaponry to destroy the American weaponry it gave Iraqis to make Iraqis safer, in order to make Iraqis safer.
