The Machinations of Machismo are soon to become the 10th wonder of the world. I am not afraid to comment on any subject and gladly welcome any intelligent machinations of your own. Its time the world had a taste of true justice, dished out Machismo style.

Rent - The Movie

Now unfortunately, being from a small town I never had ample opportunity to actually see the musical Rent live. However, I did get the opportunity to see the movie this weekend.

For those of you who haven't seen the movie yet, this is one of the few and far between "must see movies" of the decade. Even if you do not like musicals or movies that follow the format, get over yourselves and go and see this movie. The music is fantastic and anyone that doesn't like it should be ashamed for being so uncultured and uncivilized, and yes you are those. The plot was excellent and from what I hear, it was even easier to follow than then musical since film gives easier ways to change scenes as well as show ideas and "dream moments".

In short, before more rambling ensues, go see this movie, you will be a better person for it. Girls, just remember to bring some tissues, for you AND your man, they will need them too, no matter how big their male ego is.

Gas Mileage Rules

I think 344 gallons off of a 12 gallon tank isn't too shabby. Especially with gas prices lowering every day. At least by me they seem to be.

Well it is Turkey Day now and time for some good celebration and hopefully being able to hang out with friends I never get to see. So big ups to that and may all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

On a sadder note, please remember to pray for Wolf's grandpa, who is off to a better place this week. May our prayers be with his family.

Windsor Vacation

Well as expected, Xi's formal was very lackluster, and dare I say... boring. However, the festivities and events that happened afterwards were some of the greatest ever.

Not only did we get some of the best quotes ever from the trip, but we also had some of the best times ever at the clubs afterwards. Who else do you know can go to Windsor and in less than a day meet the owner of three bars and have them buy you and your buds the first round at said bars. You don't know anyone else but the All The Right Tunes boys.

There is just too much to talk about that I don't have the time here.

Note: Getting drunk and pouring beer on someone... bad.
Going back in and apologizing to the guy's face, then having him blow you off... good by me, bad by him.

Still, there's no party like an All The Right Tunes party.

What My Birthday Means


You're a restless rebel with an unpredictable nature.
Bright but unbridled, you tend to seek out wild experiences over new ideas.
People are frustrated by your great potential, but you love your unconventional life.
You're a heartbreaker. People get attached to you, and then you're gone.

Your strength: Your thirst for adventure

Your weakness: Not taking time for slow pleasures

Your power color: Hot pink

Your power symbol: Figure eight

Your power month: March
Your Birthdate: December 21


Quite the interesting little tidbit now isn't it.

Responsibility

It has come to my attention that there are a lot more fuckups in this world than was previously believed. Which is a very sad thing once you think about it.

Apparently there are a shit ton of people who can't grasp the concept of money and its subsequent value as well as how it is to be handled/transferred.

If you order a service, pay them, don't dick around with the money making pussy ass excuses because you think you can get away with it because they are "friends" or something along those lines. You will be denied service you ignorant assholes.

Also, cash is a very overrated form of currency. Sure it changes hands fast and you can actually see it. But if you believe that money is a representation of a good, you are wrong. It is a representation of a number which coincides with a value. Basically, if a Dollar is worth $1 US, then you now have 1 Dollar in US Currency. Checks are not representations of a representation, they are bills in and of themselves in a way. They can be made for specific values and are more protected than cash. On top of this they leave a paper trail, which as you should know makes for good money management if something goes wrong, you can prove the check was written and cashed and now you are safe from being charged again.

Furthermore, don't be an idiot with money. Pay your bills, pay them responsibly, and pay them on time.

Parking and Student Government

I just love Wright State's parking solutions. They add more spaces further from campus and add more faculty closer to campus. Thus even if students get to campus 30 min before their exam there are next to none if any spaces left. Hence parking in faculty spaces is the only viable solution after a time or else risk missing the class/exam you are headed to.

Then you get a parking ticket for trying to actually get to class, which you have to pay ridiculous amounts of money just to attend.

I feel raped by the system.

You think student government would try to help, well perhaps they are. However none of us will ever notice since they can't get the job done. Whoever voted for current student government officials, thanks for electing worthless idiots.

Collage of My Life

 

Here's a little snippet of my life. Described by a wonderful collage of photos that contain various people that are close to me. Hopefully you enjoy the collage as much as I do. Posted by Picasa

Fricker's Rocks

Alright, for those of you who don't know what Fricker's is, listen up. It is quite possibly one of the best wing franchises that this great planet of ours has at its disposal.

Need I say that there is not much else like sharing a good plate of wings and beer battered cheese fries with some great friends. There were absences in the great friends today, however we ate some wings for you and we all missed your company.

What a great way to round out a day.

1 Down, 2 to Go, the 4th is a Drinking Test

Well just had the second of my four finals today (even though the first was last week). I can't wait to get the other two over with and ready to move on with this chapter of my life. Ok so this chapter is really only one quarter with two more after it, but hey I get a break of just over a month and a half, now that is a good winter break.

Afterwards, as I've probably said before, is a lovely DJ Event known as a Phi Sig Chapter formal. We will see if these boys can throw a proper formal event and make sure everything is pulled off correctly, namely the fun that is to be had before, during and after the event. Nevertheless it is hard NOT to have a good time when you are in such good company.

On a completely different note, I've found some software of interest, in the form of Skype. Now I know all of you AIM, YIM and ICQ fanatics out there will be very skeptical as well as stubborn to switch over, but from my experience so far, it may be well worth it.

My Definition of a Blog

Just recently someone asked me what a blog was when I was informing them of the majestic vastness that is the Machinations of Machismo.

Wondering what I told them?


Ok I will tease you no longer, here, by popular demand, is my definition of a blog:

"...and a blog is short for weblog, basically an online journal, most popularly used by geeks and depressed teens as a release for their insignificant lives

but in my case, it is a place of fun, harmony, and chaos."

Machismo, I'm out.

Windsor and Xi's Formal Awaits

This surprisingly is going to be one of my most favorite final weeks ever. Why you may ask?

Well for starters I believe that by some miracle of nature that my finals aren't going to be that bad, PLUS I get the added bonus of probably the most fun ending of finals week ever...

I get to head up to Windsor, Canada just to DJ another of our chapter's formals. So after finals, I get paid to dress up and play music for drunken college kids, get a little inebriated myself, as well as party the whole weekend with the rest of my kickass DJ partners in crime (minus the Hyena sadly). But Machismo, Neo D, and 340 are ready to rock out with our cocks out as the ladies black out with their racks out.

Then I get over a month of solid no school, life can be beautiful.

Machismo, I'm out.

Thank God Finals are Here

Well Finals are officially here coming tomorrow morning, or this morning depending on if you are from the "tomorrow starts when I wake up" school of thought or go strictly by the clock.

I get to get rid of these three pesky finals and finally get a chance to relax once and for all out in the realm that is winter break.

Which should be the same feeling of euphoria you all are feeling.

On a different note, I have lost a lot of faith in the various members of the Greek Community here at WSU for various reasons. 'Tis a sad time for greeks when we have fakes, stereotypes, and fucking morons running and joining the system.

Something to think about.

Machismo, I'm out.

Excellent Graduation Party

Just came back from one of the most kick ass graduation parties I've ever been too.

It was supposed to be a surprise for my Big's Fiance, however I think she knew. Nonetheless good times were definitely had by all. Which considering the group, is no surprise, no pun intended.

We all drank about 1/2 gallon of LDA and handled it rather well. I haven't laughed that hard in quite a long time. The old me was definitely out for the event.

Thanks to all of those who helped make the night a success and had a damn good time doing it.

Congratulations Helene.

Radical Litos Inc. Restructuring to Commence Soon

Just so you know, the old and outdated Litos Inc. design will hopefully soon be replaced by a newer, more precise and "me" version.

So if anything looks out of place for a while, go and see an asylum you fucking lunatic, its a website for gilligan's sake.

Machismo, I'm out.

Back For Action

I have come back from the bowels of inactivity to re-invigor this site with the tenacity of myself, Litos.

I have heard some shit in my day but there is constantly stuff happening around me that just seems to scream out as if to say "I'm a stupid ass comment, please comment on me online and expose my idiocy for the whole world to possibly see".

Thus I'm back, bringing you what you love most. Stories about my life and friends, and if you are lucky, maybe a few stories of me being an idiot as well.

Lets hope I can remember to keep it up this time.

For all you hypocrits out there, fuck the fuck off. That's right, fuck the fuck off.

Machismo, I'm out
