random thoughts on may the 29th

random thoughts/happenings of the day:
- i'm getting oversensitive to incorrect pitch. you know it's bad when it's bugging me while listening to toto cutugno, a professional italian music artist.
- i should've brought the camera and tried to get a shot of bush and/or clinton today who are speaking at this moment at the metro toronto convention centre, a mere kilometer (or less) away from where i'm sitting at the moment
- i discovered a reference to a hut in the alps inside the junit source code (TestSuite's constructor) today, twittered it and subsequently got a reply from Kent Beck (, the father of extreme programming and creator of JUnit. could it be he actually did the hike up the Huefihuette with his laptop while writing that code? either way, i was startstruck.
- i shall learn to value sleep more

mars hill church

This article made me very uncomfortable. Is another good church going down the mainstream drain and becoming as irrelevant and phony as other churches? It makes me very uncomfortable when churches care so much about growth because 99% of the time they then forget about the people.

In reality most churches probably already forgot about the people and real friendships. Almost feels like the whole idea of caring about someone's spiritual well-being is mostly phony and distracts from the real issues and the real person, our "neighbor."

these are simply a few semi-random thoughts i had while stumbling "recession" related websites/articles today:
- is the recession fabricated?
- if the recession is fabricated for what reason?
- it almost feels like the only way to really change things is if we stop being stupid senseless consumers and take responsibilities for all our actions
- could it be that this is a good opportunity to develop a business which can emerge out of this recession like the phoenix from the ashes?

music to draw to

Kid Koala's gonna play a couple of five hour gigs in Montreal of some of his collection of quiet time records, giving his audience the chance to chill and perform their favorite quiet intellectual or non-intellectual activity such as writing or knitting or anything else one can do quietly while listening to music.

I probably won't go (Montreal's a little far) but this sounds like one friggin' aweseome idea...
