Turns out living in a city might be better for your health than living in the country. Who knew?Turns out living in a city might be better for your health than living in the country. Who knew?

Interesting article regarding the overall health snd stress levels of those who live in cities compared to those who live out in those rural areas (read country). So what happens if you live in the suburbs of a major city? I'm sure it must be like having the best of both worlds all the time.

Daily Grind: Busy

Name: Vin (aka johnny six arms)
How Vin feels today: Busy @ 2:08:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: For fifty work projects to not suddenly fall out of the sky at once. Seriously, what the hell is going on?

Music Stuck in Head: Lovelight / Bonerama
I heard a rocking version of this tune on WFUV the other day - killer drum solo in there as well. I've been looking for it on iTunes but have yet to find it. Update: apparently their new album (which includes this cover) has this track - still not on iTunes though.

Stuff to do today:

  • Continue to watch hair fall out as projects continue to pile up
  • Organize said upcoming projects
  • Take deep breath
  • Ah, that's better

Daily Grind: Decent

Name: Vin (aka that guy who does that thing with computers)
How Vin feels today: Decent @ 11:45:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: Figure out why I feel less stressed on days that I don't actually take an 'anti-stress' vitamin. And no, the vitamin isn't candy (B-Complex).

Music Stuck in Head: Octopus's Garden / The Beatles
''The backing vocals by McCartney and Harrison during the guitar solo were put through compressors and limiters to create a gurgling sound. Starr added the sound of bubbles being blown into a glass of water using a straw.'' - wiki

Stuff to do today:

  • Break down and pre-order Tales of Monkey Island
  • ...especially after reading some online reviews of episode 1 - here and here
  • Continue to wait patiently for full series to be available on XBLA
  • Admit that I am an Xbox achievements whore
  • Watch High School Musical again with Mad, MST3K it into oblivion one more time
  • Yes, you read that right - I want to watch that movie AGAIN (for comedy purposes only)
  • Pray that my kids aren't into this crap when they come of age
  • Having written that of course I'm now officially screwed
