Does anyone know who did this song?
I have fallen in love with it. If anyone can find me an artist and title,
I will be greatly in debted to you... If you have Internet Explorer then
you should be hearing it now... If not, click on the link above.
Mary... Mary... Mary.... When will something happen? Is something
I have no idea what that exactly means, but I have a general idea.
Mary called me a couple of days ago, and in a rather awkward moment she
admitted that she is beginning to miss me. She basically said that thoughts
of me which had at one time become almost non-existent are starting to
re-emerge. "I miss you Brian.". She wants me to come out so we can go
roller skating. That was something I always tried to avoid with her, just
cause I suck at it, plain and simple. When you come out here there's one
thing we definitely have to do! That got my mind thinking *evil grin*...
We'll see what happens. This summer I may just be crazy enough to drive out
there. I know I still love you Mary... She's just confused if whether she
loves me... or not... Does anyone see a sequel in the future of this never
ending ending to the fairy-tale?
"As I grow more and more apart from Mary this page becomes more and
more comical... and yet now that I continue to move away from her, I now
faintly see her starting to try to catch up with me..."
What's Was with Mary anyway?
I have no clue what's going on, but I do know that Mary is being really
stupid. She treats me like nothing ever happened, and constantly is telling
me about her friends (which are guys) like it will have no effect on me, as
if our relationship never existed.
One Job Prospect become actual job while other crashes and burns
Caldor has hired me as the evening "electronics counter guy", and WENU or
whatever station its going to be gave me back my tape. Apparently the
"vomiting" reference I made on it got to the guys stomach... or something.
Oh well. I think I'll send him another one!
Summer Starts in the Adirondacks
Monday Memorial Day 1996. I don't (officially or otherwise) have someone
to call my own, nothing's changed. Life sucks doesn't it... (Don't answer
that). I really don't want to be sitting in my basement tonight typing on
my computer when I could be with my girlfriend walking through Lake George
Village holding hands and eating ice cream, but unfortunately you need a
girl to do all that. Yeah, I do live only 7 miles from Lake George, NY.
Right now I'm in my basement listening to Debbie Gibson songs that bring back
no memories what-so-ever just so I don't have to hear my dad screaming at the
Yankee's game on TV. Isn't life comical?... I thought so!
Problem with ISP resolved, thank God!!
I have nothing against Mr. Dick St. Peters. I think he's really cool,
actually. I mean, how many people get to run their own
internet "everything" and get paid for it? I would be in heaven if on the
net like that! (no pun intended). Heck, I jumped for joy when I heard a
rumor he was hiring! I would love a job like that! So I wake up and get
this message on my email...
>From: "Dick St.Peters"
>Subject: I don't like being strobed
>I do not like being strobed.
>Your access is being sharply curtailed while I decide what to do about you.
I sent a letter asking what the hell strobing meant and finally got
>My security software notified me of twenty attempts to access service
>ports of my main system, mostly ports for login and remote program
>execution services commonly exploited to crack into systems. The
>probes all came from your address between 1:46 am and 1:53 am Wed,
>indicative of the rapid-fire probing called strobing.
Then it was confirmed. I did do it! Not like I meant to cause harm or
anything. I sent this letter explaining my predicament:
Ok. I guess it was the portscanner program I downloaded. It checked some
common ports and gave me a list of which ones had something on them. I
looked at the list, deleted it, and then deleted the program. Wasn't trying
to break in to anything. You didn't notice any break-ins did you cause I
didn't try to. Just testing a stupid program. Sorry.
>Ok, I've re-enabled your access. Be careful what you do; had I turned

Dick St. Peters is cool. Just have to be careful how you interact with him!

Rumors spread that I have a girlfriend?
Could it be? Someone new in my life... Hmmmmmm...
Stupid me ends up driving a half hour extra to get back to
school... for no reason
Well, even if she is my girlfriend, which I don't believe was
established, it's too late now. I'm sure if I had more time, then maybe.
She went home on Tuesday. What's going on here?
This was funny. On Wednesday night I drove home cause we just moved and
I wanted to see the new house and surprise my mother and family. The thing
is I have to be back at school by 7pm or else the car can't stay on campus.
So it's 9pm Thursday and I finally decide to leave. The trip usually takes
2 hours and 10 minutes. I left at 945pm. Stopped in Saratoga Springs to get
a hamburger and fries, 10 minutes later, south on I-87. When I get to Colonie /
Albany, where the interchange is, I decided that the original route was
boring and since I was almost falling asleep at the wheel decided to try
something new... Instead of getting on the thruway south I got on I-90
towards Boston. 26 Miles East of Albany almost to Massachusettes, I turn
onto the Taconic Parkway. I have never been on this road so I thought I'd
try it. No cars in sight, no cops in sight. The speed limit is 55, I did
75 (65 most of the way). It is such a cool road! Try it if you're in
New York State sometime! I love it! Anyway, I get off at the Poughkeepsie
exit (which is 11 miles outside of the city). Take the road (44) into the
city and go the wrong way! DUH! End up in the ghetto at red lights all the
way through. I only got out because I kept driving in the same direction
towards the blinking radio tower that is visible from school. I made it!
Left at 945pm, arrived 1230!. So much for an adventure!!! And, I loved it
so much I went home that way also. That time it only took 10 minutes longer.
School's Almost Over!! What happened?
Well. Less than a week left and I still sit here, like before, thinking
to myself "When am I going to get a girlfriend?", "When am I going to start
doing my schoolwork?", "What did I accomplish?", "Why did I let myself get
caaught up with Mary?", "Why do I have no social skills?", ..., blah blah
blah... Just the usual questions that always seem to make their way into
my mind... and the funny thing is that I can probably answer all of
Another "WAR" errupts in the Battle of WMCR...
Now this caught me totally off guard. First, let me explain my side of
the story. Before Spring vacation I suggested to Charlie, head of WMCR stuff,
that I was interested in producing the WMCR internet page. He said it was a
great idea and that he has been wanting to get something like this done. I
said, great, when can I start. He told me to wait after vacation, and that's
the last I heard about it... Then, on Monday, Jeff, my friend and fellow
Sigma Phi Nothing member, told me that Jen got the WMCR webpage rights. I
said, oh cool. Then, last night I was DJing, filling in for Mike's Midnight
Show. I noticed a sign for webpage ideas was posted, requesting members to
send their suggestions to the radio station via email. I took that down and
changed it to my email address, thinking maybe I could some-how get involved.
Then, after I got back, I left a message on Jen's machine proposing the idea
that since she actually did something about it, I can't just take it over.
I suggested that we work on it together... That was last night... This is
what I received today...
i don't know what you think you're doing but i want to make it
quite clear to you a few facts:
1. you contracted to do the WMCR web page A LONG TIME AGO.
2. you never did a FUCKING THING for the WMCR web page.
3. Jen just contracted to do the WMCR web page.
4. within THREE DAYS of her contracting to do it, Jen had the
page up and running.
please compare this to your work (that being ZERO). Those who
fulfill their obligations are rewarded. ARE WE CLEAR?
i cannot and will not let Jen do the hard work of setting the damn
thing up and dealing with Information Systems and Bob Lynch just
to have you swoop down and suddenly take over the whole thing. if you
do not desist NOW, and i mean NOW, we will get together and have you
kicked out of the club. ARE WE CLEAR? no more mister nice jeff, no more
mister nice jen, or Paul, or Dan, or anybody else who happens to be our
friends in WMCR. we personally know enough people that at least once a
day we have a friend who does a show. we have allies. DO YOU? i'm sure
even CLUTTER would be willing to help kick you out, just to spite you!
yes no? capeche?
Alright. Here's Jeff, boyfriend of Jen. He writes me this letter after
assuming that I am going to totally trash all efforts made by Jen on
the WMCR webpage. Simply not true. I know I fudged up, but at least don't
make me look like the bad guy. Here is my public apology: I'm sorry.
And apparently so are they. I immediately got letters from both Jeff and
Jen apologizing for their nonsense...
Sigma Phi Nothing Page updated...
The Sigma Phi Nothing Page now has new pictures, new background, and
a nerd-load of new links as well as a kind-of Nerd biography.
Please go visit it!
Priority Point Lost?
I got this letter yesterday that reads the following:
This leter serves to inform you that one (1) Priority Point for
Condition of Room has been deducted for improper closing
procedure on 4/5/96. Specifically, this refers to
___Closing/Locking Windows ___Unplugging Appliances/Multiplugs
___Closing Curtains _X_Taking out Garbage
Information regarding the Priority Point System can be found on
page 50 of the Student Handbook. Please read this page
Should you have any questions or need further assistance, please
do not hesitate to contact me.
What the heck is this crap? The garbage? The freakin' garbage?
Sam, I hope you see this, cause I think its totally ludicris. First of
all, how is taking out the garbage a ROOM CONDITION? Are there any
holes in the wall? Is there garbage on the floor? I guess it doesn't
matter since that's not one of the options on the sheet. Next time, I better
take the trash and dump it on the floor. At least that way the Garbage
Can will be empty. Now, seriously, there were other circumstances
going on at that time that did make me forget to empty the can. I admit I
left the garbage task undone, BUT I do also admit that the
day I went home I had
classes going from 8:00am to 6:15pm, 2 papers to write for one of those
classes, and besides that, I had only 5 minutes to go from my last class to
my ride with my dad -- he had an important meeting at 8:45pm to get to and I
live two and a half hours away. So amist the rush and hustle of the
extremely stressful day one simple task of picking up my garbage can and
walking down the hall and dumping it out was overlooked. So now, this one
damn Priority Point. One point that may keep me from continuing my
education. One point that may ruin my chance of housing. One point that
I do not deserve to lose. Sam, be reasonable. If you think its really worth
a priority point because I had to rush, then fine. Take my point away. I'm
sure I deserve to lose it. What did I do... stroon trash around the floor?
Spray graffiti on the walls? Sure, "Closing Procedures" are regardless of
everything BUT the closing procedures. Well, I'm busy and have too much
else to worry about. I have to go home the next two weekends to pack since
I'm moving April 30. I have to study for my math and Origins final. I have
to figure out my Computer Science programming, get my IS projects done, and a
term paper. I have to submit my financial aid info and get my schedule done.
And now, thanks to the circumstances of life, I have to worry about that
one Priority Point...
I received a letter from Clutter explaining their position on what had
occured and as far as they're concerned, they are very offended at how I
portray them. I would like to say that the "article" I wrote doesn't say
anything biased. If you're offended by the truth then I'm sorry. They do
say that the Big Book Of Fun response was not
written by them. The original "article" appears below.
Can't We All Just Get Along? (The Disclaimer)
This is a formal apology to those offended by this page. I realize
that some of the statements may be objectionable and demeaning to
certain individuals, and to those individuals this apology is directed.
Please realize that I don't hate anyone. Everyone has their own
kind of group to belong to. Mine just happens NOT to be those whose
primary and only interest is sports. Please forgive me and accept my
apology. I hope that we can be friends, and not enemies; it'd be
better that way for all of us. Once again, I'm sorry if anything I
said upset you. Thank you.

Sigma Phi Nothing unites on Saturday Night.
The self proclaimed fraternity
Sigma Phi Nothing basically held a private
party Saturday night in the Cabaret as expected. The SPC sponsored the
Saturday Night Dance Party which was to be dj'd by yours truly. Of course
holding a Dance Party on a Saturday night is like a tree falling in the
woods... unless you're a nerd you're out at a frat party. So there I am,
sitting behind the mixing board preparing for what I knew would be a fun
night among friends... and I was right. Just as I thought fellow Sigma Phi
Chris and his girlfriend Patty,
Jeff and his girlfriend Jen, and
Ethan, and let's not forget
Jim, showed up just as planned. No one else showed up as expected;
just some friends of the mentioned every once and a while popping in to
say hi. With this absence of others we were free to listen to
what ever we wanted and do what
ever the hell we wanted. It was a lot of fun!! DJing for friends is cool.
WMCR problems resolved...
This isn't the first time this has happened. On Halloween I DJ'd a
similar event, The Halloween Dance. Trick-or-treat! Thanks SPC and
WMCR for letting us have a night to be ourselves and hang out...
Okay. Here's the situation. I spoke to Charlie, who is a very nice guy,
and everything has been straightened out. I now have a show Thursday nights
from 10 to 12am, maybe even 2 if no one shows up. It will be TOTALLY
80'S!!. He saw this page and wasn't particulary thrilled with it, which I
apologize for. Misunderstandings come up and shit happens. If anyone was
worried that I'd go off the deep end, think again. I'm not a postal worker!!
Revenge is a weak choice and I choose not to follow that path. I already
explained my position about Clutter - I think its pretty funny that they
would think I could even attempt to take away their spot. They more than
deserve it. As far as everything else, it seems okay. In closing, listen
to my 80's show Thursday nights, listen to WMCR 90.1 fm whenever they're on,
and thanks to Charlie for understanding me even if what I felt may have
been hiding behind my previous anger...
What has been my problem? Ask Boy Doane...
Are Mary and Computers destroying Brian's life?
Apparently BOY DOANE says he knows the answer!

More people against me. Just what I needed. Since I never got a show,
obviously I was upset. I hung out at the radio station praying that someone
wouldn't show up... when at 8:56pm it happened. "Charlie they're not here.
Brian's here though, can he do it?" ... "Go ahead". So I got a slot, at
least a temp slot. I ran back to my room, grabbed my 80's gear, and started
my show. The problem is that about an hour into it the scheduled dj's,
Clutter, who coincedentally have an 80's show too, and originally had it
before I did, walked in very pissed. The next day I was greeted at the
station by this letter, written by Clutter
suspecting me of trying to "step on their turf" and "steal" their show.
I was only filling in! They never showed up! What did I do wrong? Anyway
I think its pretty funny...
Here is the
letter I sent back to them.
Also, I'd like to thank the DJ's Dre, The C-Man, and anonymous
for their support. Look here to see what I'm
Get me the hell out of here!!
