That sounds incredible, save for the sleeves dude.
I saw a great concert last Tuesday (9/27)- Butcher Babies opened for Metal Church, Suicidal Tendencies, Amon Amarth, and MEGADETH. My neighbor, his girlfriend, and her son went with.
Had a blast; being 6'6" I wanted to enjoy the show so i stayed towards the back- and i don't like asshole moshers going for my already weak knees. Happens when you stand around in GA for 5 hours.
Happy belated. Mine was Monday. So I concur about the October birthdays.
Happy belated BDay to you as well, Jon
That's an awesome lineup! I not exactly a huge Suicidal Tendencies fan, but Butcher Babies, Metal Church, Amon Amarth and Megadeth makes for one hell of a lineup. Glad it was a good concert!
Well, deduced that my laptop's internal wireless adapter is frakked. doesn't want to connect and when it does, it drops when i chance pages... i could a> get it fixed, b> get a new laptop [this one is about 2 yrs old], or c> buy a inexpensive external wireless adapter and just use that.
yup, i'm cheap, but practical- i don't use this laptop for much other than trolling the intrawebz- so option C is my best bet.
Long read ahead! sorry
My mom was out of the hospital from her hip replacement in just 2 days which is really good. She's still dealing with general soreness when walking but I imagine thats just from having the surgery. Already though she's doing way better at this stage than she was with her other hip. They say surgery because of something wearing out, you recover faster than surgery because of trauma.
Other than that I dont mean to brag but the past two weeks of my life have been really good with the exception of the first Saturday of the month. The good is that after a year I somehow got 3 tinder dates in one week. I had never even met up with someone after having the app for a year. I think the cold weather has girls looking for someone to cuddle with. Already went on one date this past Saturday. It went alright but I didnt find myself absolutely attracted to her but I might give it one more chance. Then I'm meeting another girl tomorrow and another one on friday. Im not trying to brag im just excited about all this luck i'm having lately.
NOW STORY TIME with the bad. My friend from Alabama came to visit for a couple weeks. He also happens to be gay but because he lives in Alabama the gay scene isnt that large there and anything described as a gay bar is pretty much a bar with mostly dudes hanging around. But here in Chicago there's a lot more options. My friend also isnt the kind to go out and party or drink or eat. I've known him since 6th grade and i've only seen him in a bar twice in my entire life which is almost about as many times as he's actually been to a bar. He's really cheap. So he comes to visit and happened to know some other people here I didnt that were also gay. Long story short I end up supporting my friend on his trip to his first gay bar. It was me and 5 gay guys in some bar that had male Go Go Dancers in nothing but jock straps. I also bought him a lap dance which was weird to see but overall wasnt as uncomfortable as I expected it to be, it was easy enough to ignore the nearly naked dudes (also I learned there are very few rules at gay bars, pretty much every guy was able to grope the dancers without getting in trouble).
BUT THEN! we ended up going to a more nigh-club type place that I was told was 20% straight people and some people in drag. Didnt sound like that big of a deal, sounded better than where we were actually so I agreed to go. We get into the place and right away its a wall of sound and lasers and the scent of musty sweaty grossness plus none of the people in there were wearing shirts and they all had on these leather harnesses, immediately I knew this wasn't 20% straight. I try to ignore it, follow my friend and the group into this mass of sweaty dudes holding my breath the whole time. So right away I was a little uncomfortable but i tried to zone out and talk to my friend who seemed to be getting over the whole party thing and wanting to go home. After what felt like 30 min he got pulled onto the dance floor with all his other friends leaving me sitting on a stool by myself. Not knowing what else to do i just started browsing my phone.
Shortly after I felt some people bumping me in the back like they were just standing too close. I sorta nudged them off and one of the guys from the group i was with came up to me and asked if i was alright. I said yeah, but then he looked behind me and said "I think they're giving each other hand jobs behind you", I looked at him not sure what to make of the comment then he said "oh wait no, he's starting to suck the other off" I said "are you for real, should I turn around?" he said no unless you want to then he said they were all starting to get naked. Thats when I knew I reached my boundary. I got up said it was too much and was going to go home. I sorta turned around a little and I see 3 guys standing there one's bent 90 degrees at the waist with one guy on either end of him both of them thrusting at the guy bent over in between them. They didnt even try to hide it, it was just a 3-way happening right there out in the open. Like out of a PG-13 hollywood movie somehow everything I wouldn't want to see was censored saving me from having the image permanently burned into my mind. I left feeling pretty disturbed and just wanting to take a shower and do anything I could to distract myself from what happened.
The next few days after that every time it would pop into my mind I would start to feel really uncomfortable and dirty. Its faded since then and just feels totally bizarre that it happened to me. Weird crap like that doesnt happen to me. I guess in the end I have a story to tell.
Yeah, I'm sure that would make an excellent bedtime story for the kids, one day.
That would strike me as bizarre no matter who was involved. Gays, lesbians, heteros. Get a fucking room.
Technically, they had one. Just not a private one.
I wonder if that happens often, or was an isolated incident?
You know what? I don't think I'm that curious...
Week 3 of my diet, going strong. I don't crave anything "crappy" like take out or fried food. I've lost 15 pounds now, wife has dropped 6. I'm so used to eating a normal serving size of food that I ate a little too much meatballs and pasta the other day that I feel like I ate an entire horse. I literally only had 3 meatballs and a half cup of spaghetti.
It's pretty awesome. I eat seafood or shellfish 3 times a week (salmon, flounder and shrimp jambalaya this week) and just roast the crap out of the dozen or so veggies I keep stocked at all times. It even allows me to have a beer 2-3 times a week and I don't ever feel hungry.
Other than that, I'm just reading a lot of fantasy books. Currently on the first book of the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks. Good stuff. It should last me until Brandon Sanderson's third Stormlight book comes out. I remember having to read books in school and it was excruciating to read 20+ pages. Now I find it fun to put the kids to bed and read 100 pages of a book each night.
Stalking you now, Eye. Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson.
I've heard from some people that those books are really dense and hard to follow - I've considered starting them but haven't pulled the trigger yet.
They ARE dense and they ARE hard to follow. By the end of book 3 you will be deliciously rewarded and the goodness beyond is truly astounding. One of the things I like the most about the series is how funny it can very often be. Sacred and sacrosanct Fantasy Tropes get turned upside down and inside out too. That's a breath of fresh air in a genre that too often takes itself far too seriously. Not Terry Pratchett funny, but it can get pretty absurd at times.
I might look into it after the series I'm working on now. My only worry is that I only read at night right before bed and something dense and heavy might be hard to focus on.
Read 170 pages last night, only 70 left to the end of the book and I forgot to place my Amazon order for the next book until today... might have to stretch this one to two days.
Malazan Book of the Fallen is, though as mentioned a bit dense, a great read. An immense world with alot of great characters, storylines and settings!
It might take time, but I'd say it's worth the effort!
Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy is pretty good too, if you haven't checked that out.
And of course, Pratchett!
As of my day, I'm starting my workday in a few, but hey, it's Friday!
Mistborn was awesome. I thought the first book was far and away the best of the three but all were good reads.
The only major Sanderson book I haven't read is Elantris. For some reason it just isn't as appealing when I read the synopsis. I'll get to it someday.
Warbreaker is a really underrated one from him. As a standalone, I found it to be the most exciting read of all.
- Anyway, just finished book 1 of Lightbringer by Brent Weeks. Hopefully Amazon is quick about getting book 2 over to me.
I've added Malazan to my wish list, so I'll just order it when I'm done with the Weeks' series and see how it goes.
What I really liked about Mistborn was the magic system, it felt refreshing and new.
I think my brother has Warbreaker, I'll borrow it from him and check it out.
The Kingkiller Chronicles is a great read too! Just waiting for Rothfuss to finish the third book already..
Also, Sara Douglass' Axis and Wayfarer Redemtion trilogies are pretty cool.
I have a 25 minute bus ride to work so I get alot of reading done, which is great.
I mean i'd probably be the type of dad that would be more likely to let their kid see some boobs over a guy getting their head blown off in an action movie, but id nevertake it that far.
okay... *cracks knuckles*
I went to interview with the company taking over my current job and got the thanks you for applying, and am giving them a few weeks to see if it's worth going back to working there. I've been there for 15 yrs and things have gotten bad over the last few years. Time to see if this new company can make things better- or not.
I also had to do a UA-drug test, so with time to kill, i did that.
Went to my weekly Pathfinder game night, and picked up a good haul of comics. Had my LCS owner explain that effectively "Rebirth: Batman Beyond #1" is a 0-issue to "DC Rebirth: Batman Beyond #1" seriously DC? with Marvel saturating their scene with Doctor Strange Books; DC is convolution their stories with similarly named books.
with the newest set of Turtles HeroClix "Heroes in a Half Shell" out, i've been buying a few packs from the shop that hosts the weekly Pathfinder game, and i decided to buy a whole damn box. Turns out with my Loyalty points, i had enough for a $25 gift card. Sure! for a box that was normally $70, got a discount, and using the gift card i only spent $50- with the other thing i bought.
Lucky me, in the box was Chase Shellectro clix.
The town is working on the sewer connection to my work so I can't use the toilet but have to poop.
3 hours left in my workday.
It's going to be a race to the finish!
not sure if you watch ash vs evil dead or not, but this was from a recent episode
Hanging in there. 4 minutes to go then about an hour and a half until I get home. We can do this.
I honestly had a small heart attack a few days ago. reason: no banner. yup, my Beyond Good & Evil banner, made by a long forgotten GW attendee, was no longer being displayed. wondering what the hell, i tried to access my image storage site, Photobucket. When i couldn't access the site, i nearly panicked. The banner itself is only stored on Photobucket, as the original was stored on a laptop that has long since fried.
There would have been no way to recover my glorious banner, and i would have been very despondent.
Thankfully, Photobucket is back up, and i'm going to go and copy my banner back onto my laptop.
My leased line fibre was finally switched on today. My internet is now almost 100x faster. A download that would have taken literally all day to finish now completes in 25 minutes.
Dan Quayle was right. The future really was better tomorrow.
Thank god you didn't have to get Anonymous involved!
If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure.
If I had any available vacation time today, I would go home and go to bed for the rest of the day.
All social media, workplace, public spaces are all toxic today. Nothing divides America more than voting day.
All day at work people keep asking me who I am voting for. And when I say I'm still undecided, they go into "Here is why you need to vote for my candidate" mode... And where I work is predominantly pro-Clinton (as is MA as a whole anyway). Then when you have the random Trump comment, it's like a war going off.
Normally, I'd simply sit in my chair with a bucket of popcorn and watch the fun, but I'm just burned out form this crap. Looking forward to hump day... And hockey tonight.
If you imagine Clinton as the iguana, I think it sums up the Presidential race pretty well!
it seems more like an indiana jones opening
