      An excerpt from the cinematic masterpiece LIAR, LIAR starring Jim Carrey:
      Jim Carrey: You liar! You know what l'm gonna do about this ?

      Douchebag: What ?

      Jim Carrey: Nothing! Because if l take you to court, it'll drain eight hours out of my life, and you won't show up, and if l got the judgement, you'd just stiff me anyway! So l'm gonna piss and moan like an impotent jerk and then bend over and take it up the tailpipe!

      Douchebag: You been here before, haven't ya?


      People can piss you off -- your friends, your parents, your teacher, your professor, your boss, religious groups, the government, the Red Sox, or that assmunch who just started a sentence with the word "Ergo" -- the list goes on and on. It's an undeniable, inescapable part of life.

      So in this fast-paced day and age of Twitter, Justin Bieber's haircut, and Glenn Beck crying on a nightly basis on national television, what else is there to do to cope but bitch and moan?

      That's right, for the low, low price of absolutely fucking free, apply B.A.M. to your bottled-up, festering psychological issues, and just fucking explode everything in your life that bothers you about the world and existence. But wait! There's more!!!

      No, actually, that's it...

      I'll get the ball rolling.

      FUCK BARACK OBAMA!!! God, he pisses me off. smiley5.gif

      WHAT. A. DOUCHE.

      QUESTION!

      Dear internet,

      I have a friend who has a stuttering problem. We've practically been brothers since kindergarten but he only developed this disorder in the last few years. Ever since, I've been finding it really hard to make new friends and especially keep girlfriends, because people get so distracted by the fact that it takes him literally a minute to spit out a sentence that would take a normal person like ten seconds. His doctor doesn't know what's causing it, but he's been on this concentration medication that helps a little but it's really expensive and his family can't afford to keep buying it since it's really expensive and there's no guarantee that it'll ever fix the stutter permanently. I guess what I'm asking is what should I do? It's really messed with his confidence over the years and he's not even the same person anymore, but should I still be friends with him just out of loyalty? I mean, who else will he spend time with? - Jackson


      ANSWER!

      Maybe you don't have to completely dump him as a friend but you could still try to meet other people to hang out with on the side, it's not like you guys are joined at the hip or anything, and I'd think he'd understand that you need to branch out a little bit too. If he can't understand that, I'm sure it's just because he's worried that you are going to start spending time only with your new friends, but just reassure him that it won't come to that and hopefully it'll all work out. - Jessica

      D-d-d-d-DUMP that bitch boy. You gotsta get laid, don't you?! I know it's all bros before hos and shit like that, but if he's keeping chicks off your pogo stick, you gotsta BOUNCE!! - Grandaddy Purp, representin' Californ-I-A

    • I don't know what this journal entry is

      10 years ago

      MakPhee

      So I've been working a lot lately, it seems about 40-50 hours a week usually during the days, so it's not leaving me much time to do shit at night because most small businesses where all the best people and stuff are around here are closed before 6:00 and my five-year-old sister goes to bed at 8:30, 9:00, so if I'm not off work by 7:00, I don't see the point of visiting for just over an hour. I've been spending less and less time wasting my time now that I have less of it. I guess that's kind of common sense, though, why would I keep watching tv, playing video games, and spending countless hours on the internet when I should be hanging out with friends and practicing my music? But it seems I don't have a single minute to myself just to relax, even though I probably do a lot of that without thinking about it.

      I'm rambling.

      I've been working a lot more on my music, checking out different guitars, effects pedals, amps, and the songwriting itself of course, and the more and more I do it, the more it seems I know next to nothing about it. I wonder how recording artists from the 60's and 70's have better tone and soul to their music that I can't get out of modern technology and I mean like state of the art, brand new, expensive (to me) equipment that people are using to record for major labels today and it's really discouraging. But then I actually listen to most of the complete shit that today's recording "artists" are making today with pretty much equipment as mine and that's a big confidence booster in itself.

      Half of my day consists of me thinking about music, everything from bands that I'm a fan of, lyrics, my dreams, how I don't practice enough to accomplish those dreams, and than the other half of the day is thinking about how people behave both in small terms, one to one, or as a society, everyone together, which leads to more lyrics and stuff like that. What the hell is this journal about. If anything, it's just an example of how scattered and random my own thoughts are.

      Pbbbt.

    • tl;dr

      10 years ago

      MakPhee

      You may not want to read this. It's basically just a description of why I'm more stressed out than I have ever been in eighteen years.

      Here's a journal entry. I don't really write many of these. So I've been working about 50 hours a week at Domino's as a delivery driver. It's extremely stressful, and my bosses are a complete prick and half a prick. They're both completely unapproachable, any question or suggestion can either be met with yelling, banging on desks or walls, slamming doors, or just being completely ignored until you keep repeating yourself so when they finally choose to respond to you, it's "WHAT DO YOU WANT?!" Like what the fuck? You're my boss. It's my first month. My training was absolutely horrible so I don't know half of what I'm supposed to do, and whenever I do something wrong or forget to do something that I wasn't taught to do in the first place, I get yelled at while being taught how to do it. $100+ a night in cash can't be beat though.

      I don't know when I became such a fuck-up, but I can't go through a single day without a few minor mistakes and one disaster. Little mistakes like putting info stickers on the wrong pizza boxes, not cutting the vegetables right, putting stuff in the wrong place, and disasters like going to the delivery, forgetting my cell, not finding the address, and then having to drive all the way back to the store to ask them where the address is, slowing everyone down and getting the delivery there twice as late, and half the time, the customers call back after it's fifteen minutes late to get a discount, so that makes the bosses pissed at me.

      I also went to a delivery, realized I forgot the debit machine, and sped away from the house to go get it, but I left the pizza on top of the car when I was rushing without realizing, and someone found it in the street and called the store. Fuck. The assistant manager said if the manager didn't laugh when he heard about that, I would've been fired in an instant.

      I also lost a $1100-$2000 debit machine (no one knows how much they actually cost so they just say random huge figures to freak me out) and no one has heard back from that either. I went to all of my deliveries that day to see if I had left it anywhere, and nobody claimed to see it. It's possible that someone stole it from my car while I was working in the store, but it's not like anyone could use it. Where do you sell a debit machine? A pawn shop? And if I didn't feel like my job was constantly on the line, I wouldn't make any of these mistakes, but the bosses try to keep everyone completely stressed out so they'll do a better job, which doesn't work at all. Everyone's just tense, pissed, running around, bumping into shit, making mistakes because they're in an unnecessary rush, and once in a blue moon (yeah I said it) when things do happen to go right and we finish our work an hour ahead of time and there's nothing left for anyone to do, we get yelled at for just standing around.

      Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. I dread going to this job every day and I never get two days off in a row. It's always Monday and Thursday or some shit like that because 2/3 times, I'm working weekend nights, when all of my other friends are off of work. Not only am I spending 50 hours at the job, I'm spending two hours in the morning getting ready because I hate rushing in a half hour to get to a job I don't want to go to. I really take my time to exercise, shower, get dressed, eat a big breakfast, etc. so I'm charged and ready for the day, so it's more like 60 hours out of every week and the rest of that time is scheduled for three good friends who don't like hanging out with each other, so I have to hang out with them on all different nights, and a few others who can stand each other's company, my mom twice a week, babysitting my little sister, my grandmother once a week, and practicing guitar and piano whenever I have an hour or two to myself.

      I'm completely falling behind on my practice for guitar. I feel like I haven't improved at all in over a month, and this job has cost me three pre-paid $30 lessons because they needed me to stay on and threatened to fire me if I walked out for a guitar lesson, which they don't realize is my way of getting into university in a year, and they also refused to pay for them too, so fuck that, too.

      Is all this enough of a reason to get a shrink?

      Oh, well I'm definitely not limited to the onboard effects. I just bought a Boss GT-10 effects processor and it's absolutely incredible. I can't sit down with the thing for an hour without finding something new that makes me want to play around with it for days.

      one thing i like about it is that it has a really pure un-colored clean tone. what this means to me, is that i can sculpt any sort of sound i want by using outboard effects. the stuff on the amp is great to set the "atmosphere", little tweaks that i like to carry over through an entire set to keep the sound somewhat consistent, but if you want to start playing with your sound, the onboard effects do start to limit your choices.... they're not the best in the world, and are a bit toy-ish, which is what i think they meant.

      as long as you understand that you can't reach this amp's full potential with only the onboard effects, you'll do fine.

      for live performances i rarely use an amp. i run my effects and such straight into the PA system of the place i'm doing my gig.

      however, if i'm somewhere that doesn't have a PA, i have a Line 6 Spider II 75W amp for my electric, and a 90W Behringer acoustic amplifier. and i have a small mixer that I use on my acoustic guitar with a couple mics. i've never turne either amp past about 2 or 3, because despite their size... they're damned loud. i could imagine playing a crowd of at least a hundred with either. especially indoors. outdoors you may loose a little sound to the environment, but i think you'd do okay.

      The nerve that was removed was removed through the top, but was located more toward the bottom. But as it is eaisier to heal, if the cut is from the top, they burrowed through my toe. The brusing, is normal. As for the bleeding, im sure its because I refuse to stop walking, and dont like to elevate my foot, as it hurts my knee.
