I Sing The Body Electric

I have decided to become cool. I don't know how cool works, where to buy it, or how one keeps it. But I want it. I want to roll on dubs, even if I don't exactly know what that means. I want to run on the beach towards the arms of a beautiful woman, maybe on a horse, in a totally non-homosexual way. I want to understand the lyrics to a Fallout Boy song, and listen to Kanye West. I want to wear a sweater around my hips and listen to Steve Miller Band in my convertible. I want to be extremely good looking but too humble to care. I want to pick on Screech and lift weights with A.C. Slater. I will be cool. I will shine my bling. I will drop it like it's hot. I will rage against this machine. I know everything about being cool except how to be cool. C'est La Vie.

I will never understand cool people.

You're always saying you're too weak to be strong.

Don't Fuck With My car

You don't fuck with a man's vehicle. Just don't fucking do it. Apparently the welfare addicted degenerates in my complex don't understand that. Some little shit fucker ripped off the 40th anniversary metal plats on both sides of my car last night. I swear to god, if I had caught him doing it, I would be sitting in jail right now. I am fucking sick of this complex and it's less than stellar tenants.

I can't hardly wait.

Flip The Switch

I have always been a little touchy of the death penalty. I feel that if there is enough hard evidence, and the crime is bad enough to warrant it, then capitol punishment should be exercised. It's not something I would suggest we use often, but there are just some people who can't be fixed. This is one of those cases. The defense has argued that Couey is mentally retarded and should be given special treatment, i.e. avoid the death penalty. let me get this straight; an already convicted felon with a record of 24 burglary arrests, concealed weapon charges, and is already a registered sex offender, is not competent enough to know what he is doing? Sorry, not buying it. He kidnapped Jessica Lunsford, raped her, and then buried her body in trash bags. He knew what the fuck he was doing. I say fry the fucker and let him serve as a warning to all the other pedophilic perverts out there. Fuck him, let him die.

Scars they cut into you.

More Than A Feeling

Somebody posted a link to this in the comments and I think it is worth mentioning. The author of this article basically uses Delp's death to blast Boston as some hack band with nothing to contribute to music. Well Mr. Wolfe, I ask you this; in a time before Cd's and Mp3's, before the internet and the iPod, before boy bands and factory-line produced hip-hop, how the fuck could a band sell over 17 million copies of their debut album if they were such horrible musicians? I mean seriously, their debut has sold more copies than Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon! If you want to disregard Boston as a band not worth listening to, much less writing about, don't use Brad Delp's death to glorify your statement. They may not have inspired you to pick up a guitar and play, but I saw them 11 years ago when I was 15, and they inspired me.

It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play

Tonight We Dine In Hell!

So 300 had more movie goers than all of the current top ten movies combined. Was it that good? Hell yeah.

It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.

All Alone In My Whiteboy Pain

For those of you who don't know or care, Brad Delp, the original lead singer of Boston, died. Boston was a great 70's/80's band, and they were the second band I had ever seen live. Boston was in works to release a new album, but no word has been said on whether it will continue or not. Tom Scholz tends to take years to complete a project anyway, so who knows. Still, Delp had a great voice and I am glad i got to see them as the original line-up.

Rock n' roll band, everybody's waiting

Ultimate Consumer

Three things:

1 - I have been not feeling well and have been very busy with stuff that I must accomplish while not feeling well, so that is why there have been no updates (except for that fortune cookie thing that happened to me).

2 - A book you must read: The Demon-Haunted World; by Carl Sagan.
This is an extraordinary book that I have found to be quite interesting. For those of you who do not know who Carl Sagan is, well, he wrote Contact. Oh, and he also wrote a little something called Cosmos, which ended up becoming the most widely watched PBS program in history. Seriously, over 600 million fucking people have seen this thing. That's a lot of peeps. Read the book. Both of them.

3 - Pearl Jam - Live At Easy Street
Ok, so there were actually sixteen songs performed that night, and yes this disc has only 7, but it's worth the $6. Not only are there 3 amazing covers, but they managed to throw in a long forgotten classic, "Porch", which was nice to hear. It is also easier than trying to buy all of the bootleg series, which I am still trying to do. If you buy one, by the way, pick up 11/6/00, Seattle, Washington. The last, and best in my opinion, of the 2000 concert bootleg series.

Once, upon a time, I could control myself.

Cookie's Fortune

Fortune cookies are funny things. Most people crack open that looks-like-flour-but-is-really-sugar shell and get a little white strip of paper with some words of wisdom and maybe some lottery numbers written on the back. Not me. I don't get the Zen shit. Today I got a "fortune" of "You have a unique personality", which is a nice way of saying "Go fuck yourself, freak". I guess I'm just lucky that way.

But damn was that cookie delicious.

I am one of those melodramatic fools.
