The Roof Is On Fire!

nathanielxc (1:04:44 AM): so i was posting.
nathanielxc (1:04:49 AM): and my dorm caught on fire.
themacrobaye (1:05:04 AM): no way
nathanielxc (1:05:10 AM): yes way.
nathanielxc (1:05:12 AM): welcome to my life.

Yes! That is a true conversation that I had with Connor right after being let back into my dorm, that unbeknownst to me, was a fire hazard. I’ll tell you this, it feels weird to not post at least once a day, but to be evacuated mid-post to the front lawn only to see flames pouring out of a window (on the same floor as my room!).. Isn’t a very comforting site. All the while, I’m saying tragic farewells to my iMac and dozens of gigs of music in my head. Fortunately, the blaze was contained to that room and all seems to be well.

That being said, I am back like a Dick Cheney heart attack and full of good things…also like a Dick Cheney heart attack. My momentary lapse of a hiatus was unexpected, but clearly in need with finals starting up in a few days. No fear, I’ll be posting in full non-flammable effect tomorrow. Until then, let me express my pyrotechnic joy of being alive.

Catching on fire = not one of my life goals.

One of my fav. arcade fire tunes. Have you thought about doing a moon mix? ’twas my aspiration for awhile, then it seemed as if it was going to be an EP.

thats why you always back up your files, as a very tech-savy mother would say.

you can backup and backup and backup, but it makes no difference when everything BURNS TO FUCKING CINDERS!!!

that’s hilarious.
every uk dorm is a fire hazard in my opinion. i used to live in one of the towers. sometimes when that alarm would go off in the middle of the night i would rather have burned to death than walk down all those stairs.

i like that–i’m back like a dick cheney heart attack. glad you didn’t lose everything.

yes, but it’s not that hard to bring a zip disk or two out the door with you.

how did i miss this post? i had to find it on some swedish blog. and then it made me laugh, and feel some sympathy for you.

someone probably lit their room on fire in a vain effort to postpone or exempt themselves from finals. hope you are surviving (the finals, not the fires)!
