Its been a few months since my last entry, so I thought I could post an update on my life for anyone who actually cares, (or - more likely - is bored and sifting through journals).
I grew my chops and my hair back out (as you can see from my pic).
I am again getting crappy grades and just barely avoiding failing.
I got a new job a few weeks ago as an usher at Cracker's, a comedy club in downtown Indy. I just got a promotion too. I don't get any more money, but I get to be called the Head Usher now.
That's all for now. I have to go buy a book before my next class so it looks like i read it. I'll probably post a more detailed update at some later time.
And now this...
Momma sing sing won't ya
Papa sing Gotta Jibboo
Mamma sing sing won't ya

He tries to hit you with his wine bottle, but drinks it instead.
For anyone who used to play those old text-based RPG's - or think RPG's are kinda retarded in general - enjoys bad puns, and have a bit of free time, there is a game out there for you. It is called Kingdom of Loathing www.kingdomofloathing.com. Its free and time consuming, so its great for work or those long, lonely days at home. I used to play all the time in high school, but the game wasn't completed yet and I got to the end, and got a girlfriend, so I stopped playing. But now I've started again and I have a level 4 disco bandit (I again have a g/f, but I live with her, so its different.. I'm bored).
Other playable character classes include seal clubber, pastamancer, and accordian thief to name a few. The game's landscapes include Mt. Noob (manned by the Toot Oriole, a bird who helps you get started in the game), Cobb's Knobb, the Penultimate Fantasy Airship, the Barrel Full of Barrels, a Ghost Pickle Factory, and The Hall of the Legends of Times of Old. With your trusty familiar at your side (which can be a mosquito, an angry goat, or a bloody vollyball a la Wilson to name only a few options) you will fight orcish frat boys, knobb goblins, BASIC golems, baseball bats (baseballs with bat wings), half-orc hobos, and a Boner Dagon; as well as other players, if you choose.
In short, its a great and goofy game with tons of variables and ways to play and you should try it. If anyone does decide to try it and has any questions or needs some starting meat (the currency of the game) or enchantments or anything like that, my name on there is s0fa_k1ng. Or you can hit me up on here.
KoL starter tip (and one of my favorites): using meatpaste to combine two bum cheeks (attained by killing a rushing bum) will create an asshat which can be worn to counter stench damage.

I went to see Tom Petty in concert last Friday and it was the shizNITE! He played a flawless set and the vibe in the crowd was great. There were more joints and fine girls there than I've ever seen in one place (in Indiana, anyway).
As an interesting side note, I should mention that there were more busts for underage drinking, contributing to minors, and possesion of marijuana than any concert in the history of Verizon Music Center.
Anyway, that's it. I've got to get back to work now. Shit needs shoveled.. and I'm just the guy to shovel it.

For those of you who don't yet know, Isaac Hayes (a Scientologist) quit South Park a couple weeks ago because of their remarks on Scientology.
[You may not want to read the rest if you haven't seen this weeks episode]
Last night, they aired an episode where Chef returned, but was brainwashed by "a fruity little club" into molesting children. Chef's character was voiced by Issac Hayes sound clips from previous shows. Unfortunately, at the end of the show, Chef was killed by a grizzly bear.
I am being serious when I say that I have never been as touched by a TV episode (no child-molesting pun intended) as I was by last night's South Park. It seems like the Stone and Parker really are hurt by the loss of a good friend (whether that friend is Hayes or the character of Chef, I can't be sure) instead of just being disappointed to lose a big name on their series.
So Hayes claims that he left the show because he believes their parodies of religion border on "bigotry". Hayes has been collecting paychecks off of pokes at Christianity, Mormonism, Judiasm, and other religious (and other) idealogies for 9 seasons. But all of the sudden when HIS religion is attacked, Parker and Stone are "insensitive to his personal religious beliefs".
I think that Matt Stone said it best when asked to comment by the AP:
"This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology... He has no problem - and he's cashed plenty of checks - with our show making fun of Christians... He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin."

Margot and the Nuclear So and So's
Check them out. I don't like the phrase "acoustic emo" because it doesn't really do them justice, but it's the best description I can think of right now.
favorite - Skeleton Key
for relaxing - A Sea Chanty of Sorts
for smoking a bowl - Jen is Bringin' the Drugs
Also, I can't find any guitar tabs for them, so if anyone happens to know where I can find some (free), I'll send some mod points your way.

If I had a hammer I'd build a house for two
And if I had a sailing ship I'd take a trip with you.
If I had a poet's hand I'd write a verse for thee
And if I had the painter's touch, on canvas you would be.
But I don't have a hammer and I don't have a ship
So I can't build your house and we can't take trip.
And I'll never be a poet or have the painter's grace
So I'll never write you verse or immortalize your face.
And also, I have herpes.

Got back from Florida at 6 am. Long-ass drive
I checked my grades and they suck, but at least I don't have to retake any classes.. lol.
Best news in a while.. I got a new guitar for Christmas. Its a Takamine electric/acoustic. I going to Purdue tomorrow for New Year's and I won't be taking this guitar since Purdue is apparently a black hole for everything I love.

I just finished my last paper of the semester. All I have to do is show up to class tomorrow at 9 am and I am fuckin done. w00t!
To make things even better, I just found half a bottle of vodka that I thought was lost. How could it get any better than that?
I'll tell you how. My friend just called and told me that he's cutting back on smoking next semester, so he's giving me his beautiful glass bong, Gaia.
So, in the words of Sublime:
Roll out the bong
Crank up the song
Let the informer call 911
