I haven't posted in a while. Things have been pretty intense lately, but in a good way. yeah..so san angelo is boring.. I am going back to austin early to attend some free shows and hit up some films too if I can. I can't believe I still have not done sxsw. I guess it's because I always have pre-engagements by then. Anyways, hope everyone has a nice, lax break. I know mine is long overdue. Cheers.

I finally got around to finishing this crooked documentary on the society of Sao Paulo, Brazil where plastic surgeons and bulletproof car dealerships thrive off of crime, the government embezzles all of what's left of the peoples' money, your loved one's body parts could be received in the mail, and where you might just consume the remnants of a dirty scandal. All the Netflix whores should check it out.

Today I watched A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash.

It was fascinating. I highly recommend it for people who are curious about what life will be like in the near future.

Experts estimate in 20-30 years there will not be enough oil to support the lifestyle of the society we live in now. Some believe we will go back to a society that existed before there were cars, before the 1920s. The main energy source then was coal, another nonrenewable energy, and petroleum, which may not be available in 20 years from now according to the documentary.

The other energy sources that we have looked into: ethanol, bio diesel, nuclear energy, wind, hydrogen, and solar only make up a small fraction of the amount of petroleum we use now. Worldwide we use 25 to 35 billion barrels of oil annually.

Oil, the supply of energy, not money, is what makes the world go round and with out it there will be some serious chaos unless we substitute our current energy source with in the next twenty years, which is highly unlikely. Even if we had a new source of energy now experts believe it would take at least thirty years for the world to transition.

What frustrates me the most is that we knew we were running out of oil as we moved from exploiting one country to the next, yet with all our technological advances and ingenuity we did nothing about it. Only now, when almost all our oil is depleted, do we care to think about the future generations. Does this theme sound familiar to you? It does to me.

Cheers to what lies ahead!

My teeth hurt. I hate retainers.

Why can't we adopt the British culture? Crooked teeth are now the new fad.

I had some time to spare between class and lunch today so I wandered into the trendy bookstore on the drag and came across Stephen Colbert's I am America (And So Can You). Oh my gosh, it is so funny. You can tell he wrote the book because you experience the same insane comedy you witness while watching his t.v. show. The book is basically a compact version of twenty episodes of the Colbert Report. I intend to buy it when it is no longer $25. Yes, I am cheap and I know it. Don't hate. I also noticed that they had the survival guide comedic books and alternatively had them in a one book collection. I was very pleased.

So I will add these books to my current book list:
Catch-22
Cather In the Rye ( yeah I still have not read it)
Tropic of Cancer
The Sun Also Rises
The Grapes of Wrath
I am America And So Can You
The Complete Survival Guide
