Some nice new treats

I added a few new items to my side bar, you know the thing on the right of this page.

One is the snazzy new "6 Random Posts" box. This box gives the links to 6 random posts I have written in the past. It's pretty fun for me to look at, so I'm hoping that transfers over to you too.

Second is the "Subscribe by Email" box. It's way down on the bottom of the right side of this page. This gives a chance to any non-google users to be able to get updates when I put up a new post. We "gmailers" have the advantage of clicking "Follow" and then using Google Reader (half of you just said "whaaaat?") to let us know when new posts are up.

Last is my Etsy box right below the Subscription box. I added it about a month ago but never spoke of it. It shows my latest pieces up for sale on my Etsy page. Pretty self explanatory.

Enjoy the new toys.
Use them wisely.
With great power comes great responsibility.

Dude, the Jonas Bros kick ass!

So I refreshed my ears to some Anderson today.

My band had the privilege of playing with these guys at a crappy show with no audience and all the free tacos we could eat. These dudes are from the Netherlands and we loved them. They put on a show that was fun to watch and have great songs, a lot of good vocals over digital tunes. So as I listened to their myspace I noticed that they have a free download of some remixes; four versions of one song and one version of another. I know these remixes won't disappoint since original songs are gravy as well. Luckily they didn't pull some 'Interpretaciones Del Oso' junk(good songs turned to not so good remixes (sans POS)).

Party on

Notes of a Mad Man II

I've been buying umbrellas for years and never thought about how I am directly supporting the people that are corrupting our community. It all makes sense. On my way to work every morning I pass a power plant that has excessive amounts of steam coming out of its smoke stacks. I have boiled water before and I know how much steam should be coming out of those stacks and what I see is way too much. That's because this steam isn't the steam coming from the plant by making power for our community, but it is in fact the factory putting more clouds into the air to eventually compile into cumulonimbus clouds and cause rain. But why would they want to cause rain? It can't be to water our crops, they have the water they are initially boiling on the ground already, which could be easily transported to nearby farmland. No, they want this water to turn into vapor and eventually cause a downpour on the nearest populated area.
The reason for this is that the manufacturer of the clouds is the same person that owns most of our water proof products. Rain boots, water proof coats, umbrellas, ponchos and more! It's a catch 22 if i've ever seen one.  Have you ever noticed how these clouds are being pushed out vigorously when the weather gets colder, which increases the chance of the next rain by 57%. You may be feeling a little fooled right now by these liars, I know I did when I figured it out but there is an answer. I have cut the snakes head off at both ends. Every rain I happen to find myself in, I take my biggest black trash bag and make my own poncho. It may seem like I am wasting more trash bags this way, but I have been using potato sacks for my trash for years, which is another story all together. Water proof boots are easily made with bread bags over your shoes. You can use a newspaper over your head for an umbrella, but ever since I cancelled my subscription to our local paper, I have found reliability in milk jugs. Simply cutting out the bottom of an empty jug and placing it on your head makes for a perfect water deflector.

Once we get enough people weaving their way through the norm, we can get these factories finances at almost zero and blow them out of the water once and for all.

Notes of a Mad Man

What is in the water? Not much but that will change soon.

The government has been testing a new chemical on animals for years right under our noses and their target is getting bigger.
What has always put itself in the way of motor vehicles in order to kill itself? Yes, insects. For as long as we can remember insects have been committing suicide with the help of our cars and fast moving objects…. or was it murder? The men who control our water supply have been using this "reclaimed" water to water our parks but also to quench the thirst of nearby insect life. What's in the water is a chemical that induces a state of suicidal tendencies. Once these men knew the chemical worked on insects, they tried it on mammals. Starting small, they used other nearby sources of life and began testing on rodents. Possums, squirrels, skunks and unfortunately even some household cats. This chemical caused the animals to wander in a state of mental unconsciousness into any nearby road and wait for a passing car to end their lives. This was also a successful test, so the men went even bigger selecting an array of unlucky deer in the midwest. They were unsure if the deer would have the same effect as the smaller animals but sure enough they showed the same zombie like state come nightfall. I have witnessed all of these occurrences and my wife even had the misfortune of hitting one of the unfortunate deer last month.

How long until it is us who are walking into the street? Which "drunk in public" incident was actually a "moments from murder" incident. Watch your water folks. I've been juicing my own apples for months now and have been keeping an eye on the exact cow my milk comes from.

Suspense or Comedy?

I noticed the mood of a video can change quickly with different music and sound effects.

2010 Penny

Oh hello coolest penny ever.

Picked this sucker up in my tips today. As an amateur coin collector, and coat of arms enthusiast, I feel this penny design kicks ass. Coming up in close second is Lincoln chopping wood at his log cabin. This new one just brings a sort of strength to the look of the coin. Kudos Denver mint.

It may be because i've gotten older, but I never hear kids mention cooties anymore. Do youngins not believe in the invisible bug carried by the opposite sex?

Maybe they just chase each other and say they have H1N1

Will The Lap Band Cost You Your Life?


So with every billboard on every freeway being turned into an advertisement for the lap band, it's helped me see how the girl in the ad looks like she is holding invisible knives.

I've taken the liberty of adding them back into the photo. It just makes more sense now.

Orlando Bloomin Onion

Today I decided to try and make a bloomin onion. remember those tasty things from Chilis? yum.

Anyways. I made a beer batter and cut my onion but didn't feel like burning my house down deep frying it so I baked it instead. It turned out alright. It was more like a soft, bland, oniony thing with beer batter cooked onto it. Oh well, better luck next time.

I washed it down with a banana, blueberry, vanilla, walnut shake. It tasted similar to a date shake (yum) so I was very pleased with that.
PS: avoid drinking half a beer on an empty stomach at noon, unless you party like that, but I had shit to do!

Selling my shirt

As much as I considered keeping my yellow Honda CT90, I have put it up for sale again on craigslist. If anyone wants an awesome scooter (or anyone you know), please buy it. I also have a 150cc Lifan engine listed too that I never used.

Finger feast

Wisconsin woman loses fingers to zoo bear

She is a grandma, she is 47, she has a boyfriend, and she was drunk…… I think the bear could smell the natural selection in the air.

Costco sucks and so are you

Lately I've been going to Costco for my temp job as a PA, buying muffins and water and all the assortments for a good morning. While I browsed the aisles today I noticed how shitty Costco is laid out. This place is literally the worst place to go to shop comfortably. More power to the prices, can't beat those, but give me a break with this floor plan.
Here's what I dislike

How to make a successful blog

So you've made a blog, awesome, so did 30 million other people yesterday. Apart from notifying your tech savvy friends and relatives what you have been up to, blogs are usually around to get a good deal of followers or readers; but it has to be done right. Here is my short list of what you can do to make sure you aren't left in the blogging dust and aren't writing to yourself.
