Real Recording

Written 3/26/07.

The past two weeks at WCCN I have been reading old news broadcasts and old commercials into an old tape recorded. The next day, I would sit down with Paul and listen to the recording. He would critique it, and then I would go record something else in order to try and fix whatever problems Paul found in my last recording. It certainly was a learning experience, but after two weeks spent talking to a tape recorder, I was ready to be done.

Today when I walked into the station, I was surprised to find Paul not in his chair in the studio, but over in the recording room. I was even more surprised when he said “You’re going to be recording some real stuff today!” The person that was supposed to record the “Memories Minutes” (public service announcements) over the weekend forgot to, providing me with an opportunity to do some real recording!

The time went by incredibly fast! I was even a little late to 7th hour, but not by much. I can’t wait for next time!

War of Ages doesn't know how to write at a radio station and that radio station is saving lots of money for an iPod; that iPod runs around in circles

I have been meaning to write a decent something something about the show I went to last weekend. With track practice and everything else, I just haven't had time to write that or anything else. So in short: I saw War Of Ages at the Warehouse in La Crosse, and they totally rocked the place!

In other news, a bit of WCCN update:
The past 2 weeks I have been recording stuff on a tape player, trying to work on my "delivery." Believe me, it is hard modifiying the way you speak.

iPod fund update:
$201.82 + $41.50 = $243.32

Track update:
A lot of work. 1st meet tomorrow! I'm super pumped.

Goo's dirt!

About track and starbucks

I wrote this, and then forgot to post it. Pretend I published this the 16th.


I’ve been meaning to write something all week, but the first week of track has been busy busy busy! Practice has been excellent! I know it’s weird, but I actually am having fun running around in circles, even if I have continually been in a varying state of soreness over the past three days. It has been challenging, but fun.

Also, I’ve gotten two days of mountainboarding in already! The dirt season is here, with one weekend of snow left. AKA I love mountainboarding, but skiing this weekend! Yeah son.

Yesterday I was in Marshfield for an ortho, and I got a Cinnamon Dolce Latte at Starbucks, and it was oh-so-good! Currently, I totally think that the Cinnamon Dolce Latte is the tastiest liquid I have ever tasted! Last night when I was trying to go to sleep, I could just taste it in my mouth! MMM... Starbucks!

PS Talk about crummy writing.

WCCN: Last Week

I neglected to post any WCCN updates last week...

So what I did. Basically, I ran the music for 2 of the 3 days, and the other day I basically drilled Paul with a whole bunch of questions that I had about the business. Generally, pretty low key. But excellent! Low key, and excellent!

A change of pace

I went running the other day, and today I just purchased some intensely comfortable running shoes and some silky-smooth running shorts. You might be thinking to yourself, "Why would Goo go and do those things? He has NEVER liked running, and now he is doing it for fun? This just does not compute!" Well, I will give you two reasons:
1. I am trying to be more health and fitness conscious (no more soda, more exercise).
2. I'm joining track.

"Holy Crap! Goo isn't living on Dew, and he's going out for a sport!? Wow, that kid is just full of surprises!" It is very uncharacteristic of me. I have never participated in a school sport for more than a day, and I am mentally psyched for a full season of track. Not to mention the fact that I am no longer a caffeine charged machine.

Back to that run the other day. It wasn't too long (half an hour) as I had to be home for dinner. Regardless, I ran for the first 15 minutes without stopping, which was a distance of 1.3 miles. Not speedy by any means, but I actually increased the pace for the 1.3 miles back.

I believe I am doing a poor job of portraying the incredibleness of this: I ran for 15 minutes straight. For someone who runs frequently, that is nothing. I, on the other hand, have only "gone for a run" twice ever in my entire life. That is two times in 18+ years! I feel pretty proud of myself for those 15 minutes.

So yay running, even though I'm not planning on doing much running outside of practice. My current game plan is to do pole vault, shot put, and discus. I may try a running event, but I think I would be better at pretty much everything else (that doesn't involve jumping). So yay track!

I'm Brilliant!

Your Personality is Very Rare (INTP)

Your personality type is goofy, imaginative, relaxed, and brilliant.

Only about 4% of all people have your personality, including 2% of all women and 6% of all men
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving.


I don't usually do these things, and I definitely usually don't post them, but I really like this one, because it thinks I'm brilliant and imaginative. Right on.

More Sunny Delight Hallucinations

Ever since the first time I had Strawberry Sunny Delight, IGA has not had it in stock... until now! There is currently a sale on Sunny Delight, and sitting in the dairy cooler there is one case of Strawberry SunnyD. It isn’t even on the shelf yet (I assume it is for a display), but I spotted it, and was like “YES!” I just had to buy two of them ($1.25 apiece) (that’s a savings of 54 cents apiece) (just thought you might want to know). (I think I overused the parenthesis in the last couple of sentences.)

Anyhow, I bought two Strawberry SunnyD’s, and it is absolutely delicious! Now, if you remember back to the last time I drank Strawberry SunnyD before bed, I had some very interesting dreams. Last night, I drank SunnyD pretty much right before I went to sleep. And guess what? I had some VERY interesting dreams last night! And, like last time, I am not going to detail them here, as they were VERY interesting.

Sunny Delight is a Hallucinogen


By Goo

Written: 10-24-06



Over the past couple of days I have been drinking a good deal of Sunny Delight due to the fact that Orange/Peach and Orange/Strawberry are 80 cents off at 99 cents for a 64 oz. jug.


Anyhow, last night I had some of the most absurd, gross dreams ever. At this time I will not detail what they contained.


The point being, over the past several weeks I have not been able to remember my dreams at all, and last night I had some SunnyD right before going to bed. One of the dreams that I had was so totally off the wall, I have no idea where it came from. It had pretty much no basis in reality at all. Well, it did, but it was soooo skewed, it really was amazing. Sunny Delight must be a hallucinogen.

First Googlie Ever

I've received my first Googlie ever!

(I've already received one hit from a Blogger search for "fireflight" (see Fuddruckers and Rock) but I did not think it counted as it didn't come from Google.)

Anyhow, my first Googlie was "mount bohemia ski death". Now I wonder what this person was looking for when he typed it in? Where they looking for a Mount Bohemia, an extreme resort were screwing up could cause death? Or did they hear that someone was killed at Bohemia, and they were looking for a news story? Anyhow, there were 124,000 returns on that search, and my blog is ranked number one! Wahoo for "mount bohemia ski death!"

Wisconsin FINALLY has winter!

And I'm eating it up! Shmeges invited me to go snowmobiling, and we went out and did some trail riding for about an hour and a half. It was excellent! There was soo much powder on the sides, you could just jump up on the side and rip some powder up, then drop back down into the trail and ride, and then rip some more powder... wow, it was great! The only downside was whenever I came to a complete stop and didn't rev my engine, it would die, and then take about 5 minutes to get started again.

After snowmobiling, we headed straight out to Bruce Mound to do some skiing. It was absolutely heavenly! I vote this the best day of skiing I have EVER had at Bruce Mound EVER! It was a real powder day at Bruce Mound! Sunny slope hasn't been groomed in two weeks, and that was fantastic! The sides on Old Main were excellent. It seriously was powder skiing.

Eric and Kevin decided to build a kicker pointing off of the side of the Showoff into this drift that usually accumulates there whenever we have natural snow. Kevin stepped it up and attempted a backflip, but he landed on his head. The powder was just so stinking deep, he just bounced right up, unharmed! So everyone started throwing stuff into the powder. Lots of biffage, but none of it hurt.

At one point I skied the ridge of the drift, and I was making turns in snow over my waist! At Bruce Mound!

I'm so delirous after that amazingness, I think I am writing like utter crappage, but that is ok, because the snow was O-SO-GOOD!

Poserhawks; an informative lecture by Bubbs

What is a poserhawk?

My definition: A poserhawk is a hair style that is created when some absurd poser decides to spike their hair into a grotesque wanna-be mohawk. A poserhawk is when somebody sticks their hair into a central line similar to a mohawk.

Let me clarify why a poser hawk differs from a real mohawk. This is the real definiton of a mohawk, "a hairstyle in which the head is shaved bare except for a strip of hair".
Poserhawks still have hair besides the mohawk itself.
If you still do not understand, let me google you some examples!

Warning: This wanna-be hairstyle is only to be used by posers! If you have ever had or considered having hair like this you are officially a poser and you are condemned to suck diet Pepsi through a giant straw made out of cheese for the entirety of your poserful life!!!!

Some people may think having hair like this is "cute" or "cool" but the experts have now spoken!

Now there are unclear exeptions to this judgement. Many people I know have recently made themselves poserhawks, but they don't seem quite like posers. The expert's diagnosis suspects they are suffering from short term poserculosis sickness. This is a very rare and frightening mutation of human genetics creating an alien lifeform called... a POSER. If you know anyone who fits this description please ductape them in a styrofoam box, wrap it in tin foil, poke 6 holes in the box, one for each side, and ship it to Poserville, North Carolina immediately. The clinic there will provide new protoypes of medical treatment.

In conclusion, poserhawks are for posers. if you still don't understand what a poserhawk is, go pour Dr. Pepper on you left pinky toe until it turns green because you must be a poser.

If you actually want a mohawk, please have the guts to get it cut properly.
