Thursday Nov 11th, 1999 - Union Square
I'm about to head over to Berkeley in an hour. I'm volunteering for this neurological experiment for some grad student. I'll have to wear some thing on my head for a week and a half with electrodes glued to my scalp. I'll have to shower with my head covered. The wires will be connected to some portable hard drive that will be collecting data on everything I see, hear and do. Then when that's all over with, he'll sit me down in his lab and hook me up to an even bigger machine thing and run a bunch of tests. It's all pretty Frankenstein crazy, but I'm anxious for some life experience that will trigger some creativity in my brain. I'm feeling out of ideas. I've got nothing to talk about other than my feeble attempts to write a story and make a movie about something I dont even know yet. I think I've spent a little too much time in front of a TV or computer screen and not enough time wandering the world and getting myself into trouble or putting myself into risky situations or pushing the envelope. So, here's to shaking things up a bit. At the very least, I'll come out of it with something interesting to talk about.
