I thought this episode was going to be so satisfying but it wasn't. Instead it was aggravating. I really really wanted Julie to tell Jozea that Frank was the Road Killer winner. I really really wanted her to tell him how every single instinct he had was wrong. I understand why she couldn't but come on! It would have felt so good to watch him squirm.
I don't really have a problem with the Battle Back twist unless Jozea ends up winning it. I'd love to see Boogie Down Glenn get a chance to re enter since we never got to see his social game. It would be funny if Jozea did win his way back into the house and he got there and Victor and Paul were like "he already had his fucking chance! This is our chance!" since that was their logic and Jozea's logic with the returnees.
I really don't see Jozea returning to the house. He wasn't good at comps. Remember how he tried to stack those bones? Fool. But he can probably beat Glenn. Bridgette may be the next to leave and he can beat Bridgette. Hopefully he has to face Victor or Paul at one point.
I know the 8 pack are a strong alliance and when the house is so lopsided like this some people don't like it but I don't mind. Let the strong players steam roll out all these idiots and then the games will really begin. The thing about them still being in these teams is that it makes it really easy for the 8 Pack to control the house. Here are the remaining teams. 8 Pack members are in pink.
James Bronte Victor Natalie
Nicole Vanessa Cory
Mama Day Zakiyah Paul
Frank Paulie Michelle Bridgette
This basically means all that need to happen is James throws it to make sure his team doesn't win. His team can't win. If any of the other teams win gotta believe we'll see Paul v Bridgette on the block. Obviously a lot of game play will take place inbetween. Bridgette my be able to dig herself out of her hole but I don't think Bronte, Paul or Victor have the wherewithal to realize what is happening.
No power rankings tonight because not enough changed. Refer to last times.
A 10 Bedroom Mansion is Looking for More Roommates/Members of there Communal House that Shares 1,330 Hug a Week - I Apply
Before I say anything mean I will say that it's nice we live in a day and age where all these people can find each other and it makes them happy. Moving on.
Gross. Super gross. 10 bedroom house with 38 people living in it and looking for more! Six people in some bedrooms. Hey, guys, ya gross! Family meals. Family events. This is like joining a frat but for adults. Hey, can't make friends, want to pay for them? Come live in squalor with us!
They turned their values into an acronym minus one word because they couldn't figure out how to include it.
PACTS + Gratitude.
(only read these if you can handle having a bunch of nonsense nice words thrown at you in order to sound smart and enlightened but really it's just basic obvious day to day shit that the rest of the world doesn't need spelled out for them)
This sounds absolutely miserable. I'm living with three other people right now. We all get along. We work good together as roommates. But still every now and then its so nice to have the house to yourself and just sit in silence and do what you want. We each have our own bedroom to hide, which is convenient. I like all that. So living with 37 other people doesn't sound in any way shape or form like a good thing BUT they have an application questionnaire so I took the time to answer some of the questions.
Community is a group of people that spend time together under some shared connection. People that go to church together are a community. Neighbors are a community. Baseball parents and family members become a community during the season.
Skills = I am a master chef. Traits and qualities that make the people around me more awesome? If you show me a weakness or something that bugs you I will pick at it for a while in a joking and loving way until you genuinely ask me to stop. This will help you develop tough skin and also teach you to speak up when you need to. If you get a bad haircut I will tell you that I don't like it. My mom knows I will always tell her the truth about haircuts. Looks like half the house members already have trash hair so this will probably help you guys out.
I'd like to get rid of some of the house members. 38 is just far too many. Maybe I'll find someone that's cool to do Blind Taste Tests with me because I think all my friends now are kind of over them, and I am kind of over them too but my subscribers on YouTube still like them the best and I gotta give the fans what they want.
Another project/event I would like to make part of the house is Burn Day. This will consist of every house member gathering their belongings and all the articles of clothing that smell like dust we will burn. Judging from the pictures I'm guessing we've got a lot of thrift store shoppers in the mix. Don't get me wrong I love a good thrift store but it also kind of looks like you don't clean your clothes a lot and they probably always smell like GoodWill.
This one may give me some problems. Things I am allergic to are;
J (27/M/Livermore [what the fuck are we talking about in these things?] - Got stuck in a snow mound at 8 years old and almost suffocated. Has moved six times. Shit his pants twice past the age of 5 though one was more of a shart. Enjoys whiskey and long massages. Thinks living in this house will be a nightmare but it is affordable for now. Hopes there are at least two attractive females in the house who are single and who have hair on both sides of their head.
"If you move in with us do you plan on harming us in any way shape or form?"
Can never be too careful.
Most of you have probably seen this before but it was my most popular post by far on the old blog so I thought it would be smart to put it in the archives here as well. A while ago my friends and I went down to North Carolina for a little vacation. We had a blast at the beach and local museums and tourist destinations. Just joking, we sat around on Tinder all day.
Any way, basically I was trying to see how ridiculous i could get and still have these strangers respond to me.
Lets start with Megan. Megan and I talked about vacations in Jamaica and my legless brother.
Next came Victoria. Victoria was RELENTLESS. She just kept on responding. She also helped me save a friendship with my lactose intolerant friend Nick.
Mackenzie helped settle a bet that ended up getting Ken really hurt.
Meredith wasn't shy about her racism, so I thought I'd try to dig deeper into that
Chloe was actually very attractive and apparently the nicest girl ever. Either that or she called my bluff perfectly. ASL means American Sign Language
Maria initiated conversation with me and we bonded over our lazy eyes.
Now here are all the girls that were smart enough to never respond and hopefully block me. Click the bottom ones to change.
Last week we did Matthew McConaughey movies and this week we are doing 1990's teen movies.
The movie has to revolve around high schoolers. I think that was our main stipulation for what makes it a teen movie. The main characters are teenagers.
Jimmy's list is in blue.
Evans list is in green.
Never Been Kissed (1999)
This isn't a great movie. Thing is, I grew up with sisters. One summer we drove from Illinois to New Jersey with a TV rigged through the cigarette lighter and this was one of the only two movies we had. We watched it a lot. I'm not a fan of Drew Barrymore but David Arquette is funny in it. The "cool" kid in this movie is the worst representation of High School Cool in cinema history. Guy was a fucking weirdo.
Drive Me Crazy (1999)
This one doesn’t do anything exceptionally well, but it’s just a solid 90’s teen rom-com. 1999 was an absurdly great year for these kind of movies. It was like people realized that this shit wouldn't fly in the 2000's so they just shotgunned a bunch of them out before the millennium.
This movie made me want to be a rich white girl in the 90’s. Moreso than usual. It’s just a downright fun and feel good movie, assuming you ignore the incest and statutory rape thing.
Cruel Intentions (1999)
I saw this for the time at Jimmy’s house when I was 15. Everyone was asleep and I had anywhere between 1 and 2 vodka-snapples in me. This is probably the only circumstance in which you’ll really enjoy this movie. It’s pretty dark & unsettling? But Sarah Michelle Gellar is a minx.
Can’t Hardly Wait (1998)
This movie is still funny today. Also, the main character is a huge loser so it really hit home for me. Classic last night of high school plot, where we follow a few memorable characters all trying to achieve their teenage dreams before everyone goes off to college.
Varsity Blues (1999)
I think this movie deserves more credit. Amazing cast and a surprisingly good story. It tugs at the heartstrings while delivering some quality laughs. What more can you ask for? R.I.P. Billy Bob.
American Pie (1999)
Probably the first rated R movie I saw? Taught me a lot of bad things, but I had a leg up on all other middle schoolers when it came to dick jokes thanks to it.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
This is my favorite 90s teen rom-com. I had a huge crush on Julia Stiles after this movie. Heather Ledger too. The 10 things poem at the end of this movie always reduces me to tears. In high school, I made it into an mp3 file from the YouTube clip and put it on a mixtape for a girl I had a crush on. It didn’t work but I was so proud of myself.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
One of the best teen rom-com or maybe even rom-com in general ever made. Alex Mac was officially my first real crush (besides this blonde girl that was in Barney Goes to the Doctor) so to see her grown up as a teenager was truly exciting. Don't know how to pick and choose what parts of this movie to highlight. Entire thing is a knockout. There's a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Sketchers, but I love my Prada backpack.
I’m not positive this movie fits (good thing I don’t have it too high on the list!). I love Wes Anderson movies, he always has amazing soundtracks and really quotable dialogue. Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman absolutely kill it. Very underrated and you should definitely watch it if you like good things.
Dazed and Confused (1993)
All around phenomenal movie. Ensemble cast where everyone nails their role. Great soundtrack. Great sets. On the surface it may seem like a simple party movie but there are some real issues touched on. Pink having his struggle with signing away rights to play football. The Jewish nerd struggling with his set in stone future. O'Bannion struggling with growing up and not being an asshole anymore. God damn, just a great film. It is also in my top ten movies of all time. I like it so much I get sad while watching it.
Dazed and Confused (1993)
It’s about high school kids in the 70’s but is still as relatable as any movie on this list. I used to watch this movie on Friday afternoons in college to get excited for the weekend. Truly timeless. Transcendent.
Holy hell. It so bizarre that humans like Jozea exist. Top of the line delusional. He's like Kanye except Kanye is actually very successful in his field. I give the entire rest of the house A TON of credit for putting up with this. I think I would just snap at one point and be like "dude shut the fuck up you don't have the numbers, Frank won road kill, Zaki is with us, Michelle is with us, Cory is with us, DO THE MATH! YOU DON'T HAVE THE FUCKING NUMBERS!" Frank, Mama Day and Paulie all just sitting and listening nicely is really the most impressive part of having Jozea in the house.
That secret meeting was PHENOMENAL. James crashing it and not one of the idiot squad being like "Hey Jozea, wait up" and nodding at James to get him to stop the secret talks is so bizarre. Guys! You are playing a game! Just because people want to be in the room and listen to you doesn't mean they are on your side. Bronte lets everyone know that they sent Bridgette upstairs to spy yet none of them realize that James is in the room, in the middle of the room, standing on top of the furniture SPYING ON THEM! What the hell is going on?
I really can't wait until tonight when Jozea gets sent home. Mainly because it is going to be so satisfying to see the look on his and the rest of the Idiot crews faces. I hope Julie rips him apart in the exit interview. The other reason I can't wait for him to get sent home is because then I think the actual game will start. Hopefully Victor, Paul, Bronte and the rest realize that you can't just talk to everyone and trust everyone. Jozea is going to get voted out and they are going to look around and be like "ohhhh you guys were lying to us???"
If something happens and Jozea doesn't get sent home I am going to be so so mad.
Non Jozea thoughts
The girls thinking their Spy Girls group is worthwhile is cute. Just a bunch of girls being cute.
Vanessa is playing the game well. If you aren't part of the action for the first couple weeks that is usually a good thing. Right now she's not part of either main crew and staying out of the drama. Good for her.
Victor doesn't have a funny or silly bone in his body but wants people to think he does so he wears that stupid hat. Look how silly I am! Do you guys see my hat?! It's silly right?
I Go to the Same Coffee Shop Every Day and The Guy Refuses to Treat Me Like a Regular and I Don't Like It
Since I started my new job back in April I have been going to the local, mom and pop, coffee shop that is in the same plaza as my office. I go five to ten times a week and I always get the same exact thing. Large iced coffee. It's always the same guy working. He's the owner and he refuses to act like he knows who I am. It's driving me crazy. Guy! We're basically friends! Every day, sometimes two times a day we have the same exact conversation. Word for word.
"What can I get for you?"
"Large Iced coffee."
"Will that be all?"
"Would you like your receipt?"
C'mon! Do you know how cool it feels to be a regular customer? When I was little my parents knew the owners of the Italian place up the street so we went there a lot. I always ordered the same exact thing. Not because I liked it. Because eventually I wanted the waiter to turn to me and say "the regular?" and I say "Yup" and then everyone else at the table is like "oh wow, he has a regular, he must be important, he's so cool. I wonder what the regular is? I can't wait to see what his regular is." Then they would bring me my spaghetti bolognese and be let down by how simple it was but I was only eight so they should have seen it coming.
Point is, I should walk into the coffee shop and this guys says "hey Jimmy, good morning!" and I say, "morning! how's everything going?" and by the time I get to the counter he's already started pouring my iced coffee. We chat about some current event or the weather. I pay. He says, see you later or see you tomorrow and I say, have a good one!
Instead of that awesomeness I'm stuck in some sort of 50 First Dates situation. And I don't like it! Also, they should have the whole punch cards cause if it was ten coffees and you get your eleventh free that would mean I'd get a free coffee every week.
One time in college we were going to Veggie World (the best sandwich in all of New Britain) and my friend Nick tried to pull off the regular customer routine. Owner asks him what he wants on his sandwich and Nick says "I'll have how you like it!"
Owner responds (say this in eastern european accent) "I don't know what that means how I like it? You want tomatoes? Onions? What does this mean how I like it?" Nick had to go step by step what he wanted. Never seen someone try to be a regular and get shut down so hard. Very funny to witness. That's why I can't make the first move with this guy. Balls in his court forever and always.
This song came on my Spotify Discover Playlist a couple months back and it now makes routine visits to my brain. Catchy tune. I have't really given much of Bobs other stuff a shot so I can't suggest any other songs. This one is great though. Big fan. Hope you enjoy it.
I am building a rocket ship
oh it's made from memories and it's made to make the trip
and i can go most anywhere
but when I get to where I'm going I'm never really there
but I like the effect
I guess it's what you'd expct
It comes in handy everyone once in a while
Lady Murders her Husband and Will Be Brought to Justice by a Parrot Who Witnessed It and Now Won't Stop Repeating "Don't Fucking Shoot"
GUARDIAN - A Michigan prosecutor is considering whether the words of a pet parrot could be used to try the woman accused of killing his owner.
Imagine sitting trial for murder and the defense brings in a parrot as evidence. A handler walks in with gloves on, places the parrot on a stick in the middle of the courtroom. The parrot say "don't fucking shoot. don't fucking shoot. don't fucking shoot" in your dead husbands voice. The jury gasps, looks at each other and murmurs. The prosecutor shrugs and says "I rest my case". Your lawyer throws his pad of paper onto the table in defeat. You get locked up in jail.
Hey lady, maybe you should have just killed the parrot the moment he started repeating this.
Step one: kill your husband
Step two: Kill yourself
Step three: Actually kill yourself this time because you missed your own head the first time
Step four: Decide you wan't to live now?
Step five: Kill the parrot that keeps repeating your victims last words!
Also had to be laugh out loud funny when the crime scene investigators were going through the house and the lady was playing it off like she didn't murder him then the parrot starts screaming "dont fucking shoot!" "don't fucking shoot!" and the lady had to be "ha I don't huh haha he's always saying weird shit." The investigators are like what are you saying bird, say it again. "Don't fucking shoot". Okay lady you're gonna have to come with us.
P.S. Fuck all birds. Sky garbage.
Here's a little recap video of my trip to Normandy. If you like history at all I highly recommend going. I thought I knew a good amount about the D-Day invasion. Turns out I didn't know shit. It is amazing what happened. And it's truly twilight zone stuff to go to the old farms and fields where the fighting took place. Driveways still have trenches dug out. Random foxholes still imprinted in the land. Bullet holes in buildings. Bunkers everywhere. I enjoyed it very much.
This was delicious. That's all I got to say. I enjoyed it. Thought it would last me a week. I ate it all in two days. Dee Lish Ush.
Man on Awesome Drugs Sneaks into Restaurant and Pours Powdered Sugar All Over Himself. Video Made me Laugh Out Loud
I did not expect this video to be so funny. Not really sure why. It is exactly what the headline said it was. This dudes sneaking around like a dad playing hide and seek with his kids. Employee leaves and BAM it's time to rob the joint.
NOPE. He's not robbing today (aside from a single beer).
Today he's taking a sugar shower. He looks straight up like a cartoon character. Whatever drugs he's on seem awesome. He basically ran into a restaurant and pranked himself.
Stapling the take out boxes at the end was a little mean. C'mon man, someones gonna have to undo those staples. Can't just throw away five take out boxes because they're stuck together.
Honest question, if they find this guy does he get in trouble? He didn't break in. He didn't steal anything of worth. He didn't really cause any damage. I think the restaurant chalks this one up as a win. Take the free advertisement and enjoy the laugh.
Like I said before I like the road kill competition but I also don' like it. It is a bit too random. For a game that is heavily dependent on the social aspect this seems not worth it. If someone is kicking ass in the house. Making alliances. Fooling people. Doing everything right and then get sent to the block because someone won one competition... seems too drastic. I like it for now since there are a lot of people in the house but hope it doesn't stay around too long.
These newbies are idiots. I mean we all know Jozea is garbage but what about the other guys. Paul had it coming. I said in last weeks recap that he was being too loud too early. If I am Victor I'm taking a good look at the block and reconsidering who my friends are. Two of them have been put up. Actually in his eyes three since he doesn't know Paulie is a pawn. Not a good look to see your entire alliance on the block week one.
Mama Day did work this episode. I think she's going to play her self out pretty quickly because she'll become a mess if things don't go her way but she is having a much better second showing thus far.
It is going to be awesome when Jozea gets voted out on Wednesday. He won't win the power of veto because he's not good at doing stuff. All of his alliance is on the block with him so if they win it they are going to save themselves. He thinks he has the numbers because he is delusional. The entire world will see it coming but for him it's going to be a big time blind side. Can't wait.
Other Little Notes...
Not enough Natalie.
Zakiyah is the biggest hand holder / cuddler I've ever seen.
I don't like going on the live feeds that much because I like avoiding the spoilers. Also if you start with the live feeds you can't stop. Huge trap. But I will try to post some fun non spoiler stuff from the live streams that I come across.
Clearly these recaps are for non reddit, non live streamers. Because if you do follow that stuff then you know way more than I do.
Frank is having fun. Putting the moves (wrestling) on Nicole
Apparently Cory said a bunch of homophobic stuff and now people are pointing out how often Cory is cuddling and touching the other guys and saying he's gay.
Jozea is apparantly the same 100 percent of the time. Just a fucking idiot.
Paul says he owns a mask of Abraham Lincolns death face, or something like that.
Update: Jozea has no idea how the cameras work or what zingbot is. Gonna be so god to see him leave and be crushed.
Alrighty. See ya Thursday!
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has started an investigation to find out who the whistleblower was. You know the person who said "hey these cops are passing around a prostitute, someone stop them!" She's Trying to Find and Punish that Person.
EBX - This week, the national spotlight is on Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and her embattled police department — and the headlines aren't favorable.
What happened here is someone heard about this eighteen year old girl that was being passed around the entire Bay Area by police officers as a prostitute. That person said, woah, shit, this isn't good. Someone should stop this. Who can they report it to though? The police? Nope, doesn't seem like that would work. So she went to the journalists and put the information out there.
Now the mayor is spending time and money to find this person and get them in trouble. What the fuck Libby? You should be thanking this person. Not putting out a professional witch hunt for them.
This reads as two things to me.
1. The mayor went to the police department and made a deal. The police department said fine you can make the new Chief an outside hire and we won't complain or revolt BUT you have to find our leak. I don't know what kind of deal it would be but something along those lines. The remaining officers stay in line with all the new changes that have to be made but she has to find the source for them.
2. The person has dirt on the Mayor. Mayor Schaaf knows the leak probably has the goods on her as well and needs to put a plug in it.
Either way it's a bad move to make. People in Oakland are pissed. As they should be. The police department has gone to shit and now the government is on its way. I don't know anything about politics but I gotta believe this is a career killer. What happens if they do find the leak? The police are probably going to be real kind to that person. Special treatment for bringing justice to the department.
As a little pre warning I am going to go right ahead and say I am not a musical person. The only song I can play on any instrument is the knuckles on piano. So I'm not going to act like I know the ins and outs of instrumentation. I do love listening to music. I am a lyrics guy. I like Folk, Alternative Country, Country, Southern Rock and Blues Rock. That's my precursor.
Robert Ellis self titled album came out recently and I have listened to it all the way through about five times now. I will say this right off the bat. If you are not a fan of alt. country or country in general then I do not think this is the album that's going to win you over on the the genre. If you like Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Ryan Adams, Justin Towns Earle and that kind of stuff then definitely give it a listen.
Top 3 songs: Drivin', How I Love You, Perfect Strangers
Least favorite song: Elephant (not counting Screw because its an instrumental interlude)
The three songs to open up this album really set the tone. The first song is in the third person and tells an overall story of a relationship. How two people meet as strangers and quickly decide they like each other, only to eventually really get to know one another and have that feeling wear off. Its not bitter or angry, just the natural progression of love and relationships.
Drivin' is my favorite song by a long shot. It tackles the boredom and mundane misery of being stuck. Stuck in a town. In a relationship. Just stuck. There is no excitement left. No love left. It is about a man driving around town looking to do anything but be at home with his girl. I wish you'd go to bed, without the expectation that I'll come up there and say something to help you feel like things aren't such a mess, I'll just sweep the floor and clean the desk, put up the dishes and then fold some clothes I guess.
skip to the 4:00 mark for Drivin'
This is the episode where things really start flowing. The boys get a new roommate in the mix. Sweaters has a comrade and 2hatz may be one step closer to killing himself. If you're enjoying this series make sure you know I have absolutely zero to do with it. All credit goes to Greg.
A City Council just held a Vote to Ban a Cat from a Public Library, Which Makes Sense because All Animals Should Be Banned from Public Buildings
Time for me to sound like a grumpy old person. The problem here is that if I lived in this town I wouldn't be able to rent a single book from this library. And I love books.
Cat at hair and dander gets EVERYWHERE. Every single book in this library has cat on it. What people without allergies don't understand is that it's not physically the hair. It's like the dust that falls off the hair and surrounds the air. I know people with allergies are in the minority but we still exist. I'm so allergic to cats I have to throw out my contacts everytime I'm in a room with one. Big waste of money.
The other day someone told me they sat next to a dog on an airplane. If I had to sit next to a dog on an airplane I'd be fucked!
People who love animals just like to think everyone else loves animals and if you don't like animals you get looked at as an asshole. I like one animal. My dog. So fuck these people who think this vote is wrong because the public library needs a pet mascot. Shits gross.
If you know me or follow me on twitter you know I'm a proud cryer. Not afraid of it. From the ages 14-23 I don't think I ever shed an emotional tear. Only times I cried were when I was throwing up or when I got hit in the nose. Then I graduated college. Became an adult and little bitch all at the same time.
Now I'm not just going around crying willy nilly. If I see a news story or a movie during the week that gets the tear ducts going I don't try to stop it. I don't control my emotions, they control me. But if I don't get my cry in naturally I like to wake up hungover on Saturday mornings and throw on some youtube clips that are guaranteed to get me going.
It's a nice feeling you know? To have feelings. Get a little cry session in before you get out of bed then hop to and go on with your day.
To start us off we got the number one video that is guaranteed to get me sobbing. Jason Mcelwein, the basketball manager with autism that comes off the bench and drops about a hundred points.
The fact that the student section knew he was going to play and brought posters of his face to the game. The first three he makes the crowd goes nuts and I get chills. Then every shot that drops the entire bleachers are like an accordion. Whoosh. Whoosh. By the time he makes the buzzer beater and they storm the court my face is wet.

Absolutely love this song. The sound. The lyrics. Everything. Sometimes life sucks but you will always have your good friends to commiserate with. And many of times all it takes is sharing the same feeling of sadness with someone to break the sadness. Misery loves company.
And we're sitting in the rain
And we're feeling like the weather.
You could say that we're alone
But we're lonely together
We're all in it together now
As we all fall apart
And we're swapping little pieces
Of our broken little hearts.
Here is the writer explaining how the song came to be.
“It’s one of the most literal songs that I’ve ever written, and it was important for me because I had been in a bad state for awhile,” McMicken explains. “I had this one particular night where I was particularly depressed, to the extent that I realized that I needed to get out of the house. So I walked to this bar about four blocks from my house, and I don’t’ even drink, but I knew I’d run into people that I know, and I ran into my friends Jackie and John, who are both the main characters in the song. It turned out that Jackie and John had arrived at the bar that night in a very similar position, where they were both really bummed out about stuff in their lives, and I stumbled into this situation with two people that I could really easily commiserate with. We sat and talked for a couple of hours, and the way I felt upon leaving there versus how I felt when I showed up was such a radical shift that I couldn’t help but feel like there was some greater significance or something to be incredibly thankful for. I went home that night and I wrote that song. I was just thinking back and paraphrasing the things that they had said and throwing in the things that I had said and my assessment in the chorus. And then when we recorded it, me, Jackie, and John sang it. That was something that I was really proud of.”
Other good Dr. Dog songs....
Another great song lyrically. All about living in the now. Enjoy the moment. Don't over think things.
Are you moving much too fast?
And the good times that just don't last
If you're always on the go
Make and angel in the snow
This is the first song that got me into Dr. Dog. And I guess it was mostly because of their sound cause I still don't really know what this is about. If I had to guess I'd say its about all the musicians in his city/neighborhood moving on and getting famous and he's still just hanging around. I don't know though.
The neon lights on Baltimore
Every shadow's getting famous
In some backyard, in some plastic chair
Hoping these cigarettes will save us
Here we go again
Here we go again
Heart it Races
This is there most popular song. It's not an original but it might as well be at this point. The original song is fucking whack and terrible. This version is fun and enjoyable.
Motivational Speaker Encouraged his Audience to Walk on Hot Coals to Unleash the Power Within and Whoops They all got Severly Burnt
NBC - Fire officials say more than 30 people attending a Tony Robbins event in Dallas have been treated for burns after the motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals.
Hows everyone doing tonight? "Good!" What was that? I couldn't hear you! I said HOWS EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT? "GOOD! WOOO YEAAHHH" That's more like it! That's what I like to hear! Except it's a lie. You guys aren't doing good tonight. Want to know how I know? Because you're here. Because you openly came to a self help group. A motivational speech from a guy you know nothing about. But that's good for me. Because that lets me know that you are desperate enough, clueless enough, to eat up what ever I say. So fuck it! I say everyone here walks on fire. That will be fun for me to watch. Yeah even you! *points at over weight man in front row* even you are going to walk on top of those flaming coals. Now is everybody ready!
*people walk on the fire and burn themselves and the Tony Robbins makes millions on the night because its very easy to prey on the saps and suckers of the world who are desperate to hear positive things.*

1. Would you prefer to be smart or happy, and why?
Happy because that's quite literally all the matters in life and it's probably harder to come by than smarts anyway.
2. If you could choose one superpower, what would it be and why?
Change colors. Next.
3. What is your biggest regret in life so far?
One time me and my little brother went to Blockbuster to pick out a movie to watch together. I was 19 and he was 9 at the time. I chose a Showtime show that I thought looked good. We put it on and the first scene was a guy getting a blowjob in a church from a nun. I was like woah woah woah you can't watch this Luke. So I turned it off. But I was so excited to watch I immediately left and took the dvd's to my room and watched them alone. Luke was all pumped to watch a show with me, came to blockbuster and everything then I just ditched him. Total jerk move. I should have just waited to watch that show and watched something else with Luke. He probably doesn't remember this one bit but I think about it from time to time and hate myself. I always want to call him and say sorry but that would probably weird him out, since it was 8 years ago.
The only thing that makes it a little better is the show was Californication and I watched the entire first season in one sitting that day. One of my favorite shows.
4. If you could marry a fictional character, who would it be and why?
Reese Witherspoons portrayal of June Carter or Jenny from The League and that's obvious.
First, if you are not a fan of Big Brother you are not welcome to read this blog. Move along.
Second, I am not a die hard Big Brother fan. Last season was the first one I have watched so these posts will be coming from a set of fresh eyes (some what).
Third, this blog will be reviewing the first and second episode, which aired a couple of days ago so I will probably rush this one and it'll be sloppy. Future reviews will be better.
Meet The Cast
This part of the first episode is always tough. No one comes off likable in the short little bios. It's hard to come off likable when you have to project yourself so much onto the audience. I think Bridgette and Cory were the two that came off somewhat normal and tame. I'm only going to post the people I have something to say about.
These are them...
This was a good first two episodes. I like how there were predetermined alliances with the vets and the newbies on both sides. It shook things up right away. It is also fun to see who is actually a big fan of Big Brother and who just signed up to be on every and any reality show to jump start some sort of career. The vets have an advantage because they have seen the ins and outs before. The big time fans have an advantage because they know the way the vets play. Also the fans and the returnees have an advantage because they know that Vanessa is Vanessa. Anybody who watched even one second of last years season should have known that Vanessa was Vanessa as soon as she opened her mouth.
Mama Da did so bad last season she should not have gotten a second chance. The other three went deep into their seasons. Mama Da was like the third one out. The reason she is back though is because she is good at the game. She called the twins last year. She was right about Audrey being the absolute worst. Her problem is that she's not good at the competitions and she's not really likable. Last season she got in trouble because she showed everyone how good she was at calling the twists and understanding the house. This season she's going to have to be a bit more coy. Fighting with Paul isn't going to help.
Speaking of Paul. This dude is going to get himself into trouble. Yo, Paul. shut up! It's day one and youre calling group meetings and telling everyone what their strategy should be. In every competition, whether he was playing or not Paul was the loudest voice. Yelling instructions. Telling people what to do. This isn't the game for that. Calm down and lay low for the first month. Make friends and make jokes and hold your own in the comps. Even the people on his side have to be thinking, well this guy is a loose cannon.
I Thought my Friend Died Today and was Worried Sick for an Hour. I'm Pretty Sure My Mom Wakes up Every Day With These Thoughts and I Don't Know How She Does it.
Last night I got home from my hockey game at 10:30 and when I went to shower I noticed that Jamie wasn't home. That's odd. She never stays out late. Usually in bed by ten o'clock. I just shrugged it off and thought, I'll have to text her tomorrow morning to ask where she was.
Cuts to this morning. I'm leaving the house and David, another roommate calls and asks if I have heard from Jamie. She didn't come home. We can't track her on Find my Friends. All texts are going from iMessage to Text Message so her phone must be off. I ask David if I should get in touch with her mom but we both decide to hold off on that, no need to worry her when it could be nothing.
An hour or so goes by. Now our other friend texts us asking if we have talked to Jamie. We say no. Jamie is a texter. Responds right away. Talks to people all day so for her not to be in contact with three people who she usually talks to everyday is odd. At this point my mothers personality seeps through and I have officially started to worry.
I scan the news just to check everything out and I see this article.
So yeah, now my hearts in my stomach. Jamie rides her bike to work often. She's a female. She goes to work in the morning.
I text David and now we're both talking about how we got our mothers in us and we're really fucking worried. "Was her bike at the house?" "I think so. Well her car wasn't so she probably drove." "But that doesn't mean her bike is there." "Does she take Stanley to work." "No she takes East Jack London but Stanley is a way she could take."
At this point I think she's dead. Full blown panic. Scared shitless. Just trying to refresh all the news feeds. Message her mom. Text her brother. They both don't respond for some time. My brain says, they have heard the news and surely don't have the time or wherewithal to respond to messages right now.
Too many coincidences. The one time we don't hear from her for a long period of time is the one time an adult female bicyclists is in a fatal crash in our town. Fuck.
Then her mom finally gets back to me and lets me know they are on their family camping trip. The one Jamie has probably told me about a million times. I just didn't enter it into my brain. A sigh of relief. Then some laughs. It's all good. But holy shit does the human brain suck. I was so deep into panic and worry I couldn't think about anything else. Is this how moms feel all the time? Is this why every time I call my mom she answers with "what's wrong?!" She just spends her day thinking about all the things that could be going horribly wrong with her children. I can't even imagine. I went through it for an hour and am taxed!
The good news is that Jamie is in fact not dead. She's camping and has no phone service. The bad news is that a lot of people went through the same thing I did today but for them the girl who died was who they were worried about and that is heartbreaking.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
