some days I feel just how that bird looks.


So, I stayed up and watched my first ever Conan Tonight Show to see Rancid perform. They were great, but I hated the 15 minutes or so I had to endure Dane Cook, who has to be the unfunniest comedian ever.

some observations: the new drummer is ferocious. skinny jeans are not for Tim. lars is the healthiest looking one amongst the group, which is just not possible.

I hate it when pop stars lie to you. I went to see Glenn Tilbrook the other week and bumped into him outside the venue. I asked him to sing an EC song and he said he would. But he didn't. I was really upset.

Wait until I see him again. The cheek of the man - building up my hopes like that!

It's not my birthday.


On the other hand, I am kicking WSS' ass in MLS ff. Also, Austin's & Steven's. My secret is to wait until everyone else stops playing. And making Guillermo Barros Schelotto my capitan.

Nothing even remotely funny. Tragic. Sick. and duping 10,000's of people, yet untouchable as a 'minority" that we are to have empathy for. Tragic to see how this guy continues to run things into the ground, with a flair for the effete that sickens most.
what a loser.

Shhh! There's a reason they call those unmentionables......

Not that that matters here. Ypsilanti panties, boy shorts & leopard skin thongs. There might be a song in there. :lol:

How's this for random...?

Postby A rope leash » Fri Jun 26, 2009 8:34 pm

Dammit...Average, ole boy...you've gone down that hole of partisan depression that only losers fall into. I've seen it happen with so many Republican "conservatives" since O'Bomber took over. They sequester themselves in tiny corners, looking around suspiciously at "others", waiting for Glenn Beck while tuning the Rush station off just a little, letting in some frequency whine, to make it seem as if the propaganda was coming from a boat offshore. Your country's been taken over by gay leftists, and you are the last line of defense against this immoral assault.

This is much like my Grandmother was. No pill could soothe her when Kennedy beat Nixon back in 1960. "They", she said, "just won't let us win!". She sobbed for days. Fuck, we just had eight years of Eisenhower, so what the fuck? This how deep the partisan mindset is...it's genetic, almost...like religion.

"They", "Them", the "Evil Other". Your neighbor.

Meanwhile, we fuck with an Iranian election, and you think it's a revolution.

Sad, really, since it's all a gigantic mass deception.

But, fuck, what do I care. There's a couple of hundred marijuana shops in LA, and getting a script don't seem that tough, so I don't know what Average's problem is. The Democrats? Fuck, after the disaster the Republicans let out in eight years, Average is lucky to even have a party left. Admit it, Ron Paul is your last hope. Get on the bus...and turn off the corporate news...it's embarrassing what it's doing to you.

Like I give a shit. Fuck no, I don't. This is my new style of writing, full of fucks. I've been this way since the fucking ice storm, and it's only gotten worse since my girlfriend left me and my dog died.

Yeah, she ran over him on the way out.

Yeah, that's right, Josie Cat's had enough of nothing. I'll have to rent this place out.

Yeah, that's right...it's hot as Hell but we had a shower and fuck I got wet. I would have stood for electrocution if I had known exactly where.

Yeah, fuck, who can blame her? The lack of sentiment is quite disturbing. This is the silliest rejection I've ever endured. She got me just before I was gonna get her. How weak.

So, sure, it's Whateverday night and I'm drinking some awful brew. Trust me, I can't afford it. So, Average..."fudge-packer"...that's pretty crude. A lot of women get their "fudge packed", as well. You think gays are some sort of protected minority that can't be insulted, but you just did...and the mainstream media you adore has given you the permission. Face it, if they were still stereotyping racial minorities, you'd be right in there with the "fun" on that, too. Your head is so full of corporate sizing I can't help but beseech you...please, sir...let go of the phony left-right political dichotomy. It isn't "leftists" that are in the wrong...it's everyone that thinks "right" or "left" are viable categories for political thought. You are blessed to live in a country that is based on a set of written-down guidelines...our Constitution...and no where there will you find any talk of Democrats or Republicans. Our forefathers hated political parties about as much as they hated bankers and crowned monarchies. We are all Americans first...party lackey is about eighth or ninth in my book.

Shit, at least you got a job and a family.

Fuck.

Nope. And nope, the concern and degree there of that you exhibit does however reveal you to be a conformist with acute approval seeking tendencies. So you might as well get an iphone as soon as possible... save yourself some frustration and pain.
