Tis the Season!

So, here's a little story. My car got broken into just as the fall semester of school ended in the middle of December. They stole my backpack and my cologne out of my car but left my radar detector, which rules, you should get one. I was happy that the thief didn't steal that. But I was still pretty mad that some one had stole some of my stuff. I had to go buy a new backpack and a bunch of other crap that was in there so I could function in school. (pen, pencil, paper, binders, etc.)

But today, 3 weeks into the semester, I got a phone call that went something like this.

"Is this Caleb Reeve?"
"This is officer xxxxxx with the provo police department."
At this point I am thinking, oh crap, what did I do this time? I think that way because I know there is something that I done that would anger the police.
He continued, "I have your backpack here with me at the station. It was recovered from a stolen vehicle that we just brought in."

It made my day. The best thing is that he is coming to school to give it to me! Its like webvan...or a pizza. Rad.

I'm in an internet marketing class right now and it is some kind of serious joke.
Keep it straight up gangster yo!

I just don't get it. I live in Utah for now, and at least the 7th person has died in an avalanche this year. Hey all you backcountry riders...FIGURE IT OUT! Is it worth the few sweet turns in the fresh powder? How many more greedy, stupid people are going to die this year in avalanches? I don't mean to be totally insensitive but I need to prove a point. You have to be pretty stupid to go out into the backcountry after 2 weeks of over 5 feet fresh snowfall. They have been warning people, they have signs at the resorts. You are basically asking for it. Obviously it doesn't matter how prepared you are for it because the freshest body that was dug up today just finished a course in avalanche awareness. He was on the search and rescue team in his hometown. I want to feel bad for them but they are making it more difficult than I would like. Don't just be careful, stay away if you want to live.

Thank You iPod!

I can listen to all of the songs I love thanks to this little device. Get yourself an iPod. I love music. It is a huge part of my life.

Music: I love emotion in music. There is a certain passion that some artists have for their music that I am drawn to. Whether it is in the words or the music or the harmonies. It makes it better, distinguishable.

Classic Rock - I got into this music purely out of peer pressure. I had to fit in with my group of friends so I listened to what they listened to. It was all Classic Rock. I didn't mind, I enjoy it.

*Pink Floyd - I remember listening to The Final Cut for the first time and I was blown away. I could feel Roger's pain. David Gilmore's guitar could speak. No words need be spoken. I knew what David was trying to say. "Ashes and diamonds, foe and friend; we were all equal in the end" from the album, The Final Cut - Two Suns in the Sunset
* The Doors - I like these guys too. They're not The Floyd but it is a different feel. Actually it is very different from Floyd. The Doors' guitarist pretty much sucked. But I love driving to their music. I love the poetics and feelings from Jim. "Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn. Tied her with fences and dragged her down." - When the Music's Over

*Hip-Hop - I don't know how I got into Rap, but I did. It wasn't the norm in my family or with my friends but I always have loved it. It speaks to be. Sure I'm white and 25 from suburbia but I have a bit of gangster in me...Holler! :)
*2 Pac - His flow and voice are great I can feel his emotion. He means what he says. I lowered the flag at my high school to half mast when I found out he died. "Remember me smiling, with G's in my pocket. Have a party at my funeral, let every rapper rock it." - Life Goes On
* Dr. Dre - He's a Pioneer. His beats are rad, he keeps it fresh. "What? cuz I been in the lab, with a pen and a pad; tryin to get this damn label off?" Forgot About Dre
* Snoop - A classic. Smooth and Stylish. "slim with the tilted grin"
* Eminem - He is unreal. I don't know how he puts it all together lyrically. He really is gifted. "Who's arm is this? I must have cut it off at the pharmacist. Who failed to renew my seven perscripts into Darvocets. I'm the old man who lives upstairs and starves his pets. And never leave his house cause he thinks his car's possessed." Watch Dees
**Others: Master P, P. Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G., 50 Cent...

Slow Jams -
80's I grew up in the eighties and had a father who listened to soft rock non-stop. So naturally I became a fan of those same hits. I love lots of 80's music but the rock ballads and love songs take the cake.
* Lionel Richie " I've been alone with you inside my mind. And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times." Hello
* Heart " You don't know how long I've wanted to touch your lips and hold you close." Alone
* George Michael "So if you love me; Say you love me. But if you don't, then just let me go." One More Try
* Whitney Houston "Loving you makes life worth living" Didn't We Almost Have it All

**Other Artists I Like:
Billy Joel, Air Supply, Chicago, Hall and Oats, Micael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz, Phil Collins, Les Miserables, Sublime...

I don't have a category to put this band in but they deserve a shout out in my book.
*Dashboard Confessional - Chris Carrabba is the lead singer and guitarist. He's pretty good too. This band is all about emotion. The music is awesome, but especially the lyrics. There is so much feeling. They are amazing. I suggest you check them out if you can. "I guess its luck. But its the same hard luck you've been trying to tame. Maybe its love but its like you said; "Love is like a role that we play." Ghost of a Good Thing Check out their site, they have some music you can listen to.

My Noble Effort

How do our teachers get paid nothing...but we pay some dude to throw a ball $15 million a year? Good job America, at least we have our priorities straight. Do we really need to wonder why the world seems so evil? Look at what we glamorize. Look at what we revere. Look at who we pay and how much we pay them. I don't ask those questions.

My friend and I put together this website back in 2000. Actually, I added creative input. He did all the technical stuff, but I watched as he did it. I'd give him my advice on what it should look like and what it should say and he made it happen.

How About a Poem?

I wrote this poem moments after a girl, I totally would have married, told me she wasn't physically or sexually attracted to me. Ouch.
A Crooked Babbling Brooke

What, I’m not good enough? Do I give up?
Close the door behind me?
Well, the truth hurts. And what is worse, it is blinding.
Constantly reminding me, finding my weaknesses, hiding.
Bringing me grief, stealing my peace, a thief.
She a beauty, and me, the beast.
These kinds of stories, with no happy ending, they adore me, they form me.
No more pretending, lending me fantasies that can never be, only possibilities.
My heart is adrift on random seas.
Play me a heartbreak anthem please.
I can’t breathe, with tendencies to grieve.
She’s out of my league.
It’s cold. I freeze. Oh reality!
My needs never met, bereft, upset.
Yet, I can’t forget, or let go!
Still, I know this is how it ends again.
Lacking, never packing the total package though.
I’ll be good enough for someone, somewhere, someday, maybe.
I hope…

The Internet

Ok, This is weird. Does the internet exist? Sure there are lines and cables and monitors and modems, but is there really internet? Its not like this blog even really exists in reality. I can't go to a warehouse and grab it. So what part of the internet, other than the physical pieces, actually exists? It doesn't exist. All we really have is the tools that allows us to look at it. I can't even take those tools apart and find the internet. Think about it.

Much love. Keep it straight up gangster.


How To Love?

This isn’t a relationship blog.
In relationships today there is an inherent problem, love. Couples get involved with each other and “fall in love.” Cool. I’m not bashing love. I want to talk about people’s propensity to love and propensity to be loved.
There are several ways to love someone. Forgive me if I miss one. 1. Physically 2. With gifts 3. With time 4. With service 5. With words.
In relationships, especially with ones dealing with love we must be careful, we must understand what our partner needs. You see, some people need to be loved in certain ways. Some like to be showered with gifts, others like to be told that they are loved.
The key to a successful relationship where love is needing to be addressed is; how does my partner need to be loved? How do they respond to love? Do they need gifts; do they need the physical touch, or my physical presence to know they are loved? How do they need to be loved?
Once we know what our partner wants we must also know what we want. How do I need to be loved? Once you know, you need to communicate that to your partner. This is one of my love recipes. I figure this would save a lot of people a lot of turmoil, a lot of tears.
You see the problem with love is that not everyone responds to it in the same way. Let’s say a guy, Jack, loves a girl, Jill. Jack wants Jill to know he loves her so he buys her gifts. All kinds of gifts. What if Jill just needs to be told that she is loved? All of Jacks gifts, while nice gestures, are in vain. Jill is not getting the point. Now there is tension between them. Jill doesn’t know if Jack loves her and Jack doesn’t know why Jill doesn’t appreciate his gifts.
I see this type of thing happening all the time. So my advice, not that I am qualified to speak on such a topic, is know how to love and know how you need to be loved.
