things you need to know about (under $10)

public service post: injecting some rad and/or awesome images into the nat'l lexicon:
note that I can hook you up with these shirts; if you wanna dance, email me.


when having the dragon temper your sword, aim flame away from face, no wonder he's a skele.




...an abandoned "Suicide Girls" T-Shirt design (will probably get this one in real life)



...total white girl by mistake of clueless chinese manufacturer


...pretty sure it says "Casualties of War, Cauldron of Shit (another possible purchase by me, just to have a shirt that says "Indie Rock!"


...mmm, didn't really have an english-speaking human spell-check this one, didja? ...mmm munk fist...


ditto for this shirt ...NO MERCY!


...I will do whatever it takes to get this shirt



"SUAR" is another "actually gonna get it" shirt for me; actually very cool





...and when he created this t-shirt, he put white girls on it yo.


there is someone out there that would wear this; honestly. hoof; check it out then talk to it.


Shan got/animal-rescued a white bun-bun last week, the day before I bought the C20, thereby keeping our "1 animal = 1 vehicle" rule at our house intact. This one's for her, plus I just named it "Gangsta Bunny" jus now.



..and at your mama's house on Saturday night.


...So does sniffing your hands, you big-nosed WASP.


next to this box of garbage and flowers...


true dat


please direct your attention to the feet pressed against the window. This is another "gonna git it item



I would paint a colon (:) after the word "fish"




we all do, weird-ass red-hat soc. mule-lady, we all do.

Honestly, Muzak? Throw me outta the cab

this sums it up, without invoking the wreched song by name:

AAA has all of my money

Every vehicle I own is legally mine, and is registered and insured at the moment; spent an hour at AAA this morning, TCB. It's weird, makes me feel like going out and getting rear-ended.

unlocking the locks/hair we grow again




I'm currently growing my hair long. This is new to me, and my hair is now the longest it has ever been -- 4 inches long in the back. As a life-long punker (post-punker nowadays), I've always kept my hair very short. It's just a functional length, really. Having short hair is just so hassle-free and comfortable. Well, the people at work have begun to notice, which is nice of them since I've been talking/complaining about it non-stop in front of the mirror for weeks now. "Pre-owned" Mike, who sits across from me at work and sells used cars, has *officially* challenged me to a grow-off. Mike has kinda always rocked the yuppie, slicked-down mullet, and he named the stakes: the first one to cut his hair owes the other a night of drinking at the bar across the street. My resolve has never been stronger, but now that free beers are involved, it's absolutely resolute. So, if I can't stand it at this length, why am I growing it long, anyway?One aspect of the idea was to use it as a remark against the Iraq war, thereby letting the passage of time that the fighting has continued-for be readily apparent when looking at the length of my hair. Fight on, you crazy diamonds, you're turning me into a hippie. A hippie with a free night at the bar ahead of him, yo.

I bought this pickup truck yesterday in Perris, California. Dude, the neighborhood kids were never happier.

Loading-up the BMW with Mary's convenient adjustable/portable loading dock.

Every crushed vehicle on that tractor-trailer was newer than what I was driving! um, that's a good omen, right?

my worlds colliding

and focusing into a lazer beam of cool shit I like! Rush will be playing live on The Colbert Report tonite! POW!

elephants need bigger dicks

So, me and the wife were engaged in the national pastime last night, and though we have a DVR, we were watching live TV(!). Therefore, we were forced to watch commercials in real time, just like in the good ol' days. Well, we were getting fucked at every break by all of the male enhancement ads; you know, the ads for those drugs that embiggen that certain part of the male body. They mean the penis, the rod, the...johnson. Anyway, an idea hit me like a freight train that keeps rollin' all night long...an idea that was so big and attractive, yet kept going in and out of my consciousness until it finally sprang-forth fully-formed. To wit:

1.) all of these ads purport that they'll send you a week's supply for FREE, and
2.) they'll send a week's supply to me too, so,
3.) we should all call and get our big-dick-for-a-week-pills right away, so that
4.) we get them all at the same time,

and

5.) then we all go to the zoo and feed em all to one very special male elephant.

the dark lord, revealed

my 2.5 year-old and I are watching SW:ep2 atm, and he parroted Obi-Wan when he says "Anakin!" as he throws his lightsaber to him, so I told Snootcher that Anakin becomes Darth Vader. His response? "oh my god, he put hat on."

growing pains

I've been growing my hair out lately in protest of the iraq war, and let me tell you, it's starting to bug me a little.

I *heart* punk rock

With so much musical input these days, and trying to suck it all in, it's easy to forget stuff you haven't listened-to in awhile. Man, there's so much music that never made the transition from tapes to digital; gotta get one of those tape-to-mp3 deals. lately, I've really been into unearthing early early heavy metal (black sabbath, budgie, some others I've discovered), "distilled" metal (3 Inches of Blood, Wolf), old reggae/ska, old blues, et alia. It's been easy to forget how good punk rock is. Sure, some of it is nostalgia, but honestly, soul-fortifying. Subhumans, Dead Kennedys, Still Little Fingers, Conflict, Youth Brigade, the Misfits, Black Flag, the Fixtures, Social Distortion. I took this pic of the wonderful band the Epoxies.
