The Recovery efforts are on their way...by that I mean the Aspirin.
Good Evening folks; it is I the post Bachelor-Party guy without the hang over I thought I was going to have.
I will start off by saying Saturday was one of the best times I've had in a long time. Lots of laughs, drinks, fight watching outside on top of a 51 story lounge in Las Vegas...
Now to the part of the weekend that pissed me off and opened my eyes to a lot of things...yeah I don't have many close friends, but the ones I invited to Friday nights festivities I expected would show up for this special occasion..Out of the 20 or so that I invited umm 2 showed up....Luckily my cousin has a lot of drunk friends that he invited who showed up that enjoy having a good time no matter who its for. Unfortunatly, I'm not too crazy for his friends as they get really really out of control. After 2 1/2 hours of being there, I took off as I soon felt the party turned more for them than me. Had it not been for the drunk friends, most of whom I didn't know, there would have been 4 people there...sad isn't it? Happy on outside, horrible on inside..Did I mention there were no chairs inside this empty house? Thanks to the Duke of Fullerton, he managed to swing a blow up mattress for me.
Saturday really made up for the Friday night shit fest. Went to Vegas, stayed at Hooters, and had lots of fun. Festivities started around 9pm at the VooDoo Lounge at the Rio. I was introduced to a drink called "Witch Doctor" and became really familiar with it by the end of the night. That as well as his pal good ol Jack Daniels. Yes I drank and it was cool...no sickness, just a nice buzz going on. Smoked on a cigar..enjoyed the Las Vegas skyline.
What was cool about the VooDoo Lounge this night was it not only my Bachelor Party, it was the official Ultimate Fighting Championship After Party and guess who showed up? The man himself, Mr. Kick your ass any day, the Motherfuckin man himself Chuck Liddell. He just finished kicking Sobral's ass in the 1st round of their UFC match that took place that night at Mandalay Bay. I can now say Chuck Liddell was at my Bachelor Party and I won't be lying about it.
Something else happened at that party that made me leave early without some of the people I went with. Don't think bad, I didn't do anything wrong. I actually prevented something from occuring and I feel really good about it. No I didn't fight Chuck Liddell, he's scared of me. The Truth of the matter is...I can't say here..I'll tell those like the Duke, The Wrider, and Birdman of what happened. Sorry to the others who read this blog and want to know, just can't have too much info out there.

The Duke of Fullerton and I had an interesting conversation over lunch and dealt with Didelphic Uterus. It all started with the, who would you rather date, a lady with one leg bigger than the other, or one who is so crosseyed that her eyes are pointing at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. We went on, or I went on as he was getting grossed out and finally stumbled onto Didelphic Uterus. Didelphic Uterus is a rare condition that occurs in women. This so called defect occurs when a woman has TWO vajayjay's. TWO!?!?!? How lucky must a guy be to date a woman with Didelphic Uterus.
In case you were wondering, the question was, Would you rather date a girl with Didelphic Uterus or one with three whoowhoo's

The Birdman requested it and here it is. The reciepe for paste.
Flour and Water Paste
This paste can be used for papier-mâché projects. This paste is nontoxic, which is good for young children, and it will last for months if you keep it in the refrigerator.
1/2 cup flour
3 cups boiling water
3/4 cup cold water
Slowly pour cold water into flour and stir to make a paste. Pour paste into the boiling water, stirring constantly. Cook for 5 minutes or until the paste is thick and smooth. When cool, pour into a plastic squeeze-top container; label.

Brief history about myself. I have been a big weather buff since I was 7 years old or so. I listened to weather forcasts on my police scanner, watched Dallas Raines give the afternoon weather report. I even wanted to become a meteorologist.
Current- One thing has boggled my mind and I've been wanting to post on this for a few days. Have you noticed one thing about this year that is different than last year? Here is a hint:
Well, if you don't have it by now, those are Hurricane names. 27 of them to be exact; in fact, so many hurricanes happened last year that the NWS had to issue Greek names.
Hurricane Katrina, one of the most devistating hurricanes of all time swept across Florida as a Category 1 and gained intensity to what i believe was the strongest hurricane in history. The storm lost some of its strength as it devestated Louisiana.
There were a total of 4 CAT 5 storms last year which is the first time ever in a year that there have been more than 2.
Onto this year...With half the hurricane season over, we have a total of 0 Hurricanes and 2 tropical storms. NO HURRICANES!?!?!
Last year we were hearing that Global warming was the cause for the outbreak. If that was the case, then wouldn't we see that this year?
I read an interesting article a few years which talked about how the Government was working on a scientific experiement to control weather. Weather Manipluation was the title and it was pretty scary. Imagine using the weather in warfare? What could the affects be from that.
In 2005,was the Atlantic Ocean, and the Golf Coast the testing ground for this?
Just this year in Loma Linda, a freak incident occured called "megacryometeors". This my friends are chunks of ice that fall from a cloudless sky. In fact, megacryometeors have fallen in such places as Africa where its freakin 110 degrees in the shade. How can a chunk of ICE fall out of the sky??? Have you heard about this on the news? No? Could it cause a panic if reported? Possibly. Weather Manipulation? Possibly
Please take a second to read the below article. You may find it interesting.

Still here in San Francisco. Looks like I will not be flying home tomorrow after all because with the transportation I have going to the Airport, I would not get there in time since this Terror Alert messed things up.
If you haven't heard by now, the US is under an Orange Terror Alert level cause of some jackholes in London who were planning on making explosives to resemble drinks. Early word was that the terrorists were planning on blowing up the planes over New York, Boston, and Los Angeles. The Govenator Arrrrnold placed the National Guards at the airports up here along with bomb sniffing dogs and police men with rifles. The BART which I talked about on my last post has police men with bomb sniffing dogs searching random people as well. What a first time flying experience.
I went to Fisherman's Wharf last night and ate dinner with some people that i'm taking my class with. We had fun but the food really sucked. We ended up bagging it and giving it to a homeless guy.
The weather is really nice over here..around 70 degrees and overcast.
Since there is no longer a flight for me I will be driving into So Cal tonight.

I am currently in San Francisco. I got to Oakland around 4:30pm and took the BART (Train) to Frisco. Let me tell you...the plane ride was awesome. It felt like I was on a really high bus. There was very little turbulence and the views were awesome...by that I mean the lady across from me in a tank top had massive whoo whoo's. I took the guy sitting next to me preztels because he was asleep.
The BART was scarier than the plane ride. It went through some of the slummiest parts of Oakland which by coincidence is right behind Oakland Coliseum, home of the Raiders. I get in one of the train cars and it had about 3 people in it, one of whom was sleeping. The car was very hot so i leaned back to rest and try to keep cool. Next thing I know, im sweating and i'm by myself in the car, everyone switched to an airconditioned car. Well the train slowed to a stop so I decide to switch cars and wouldn't you know it. As I move from one car to another, the train takes off at high speed and i lose my balance. There is a sign that says don't stand between cars, guess where I was. I couldn't open the door to the other car because the train was moving too fast. Finally with my mighty mighty muscles I pryed it open.
My exit finally comes so I get out and its a really nice part of Frisco but I had no idea which direction to go. I head up Powell street and according to Google Maps my hotel is 1000 feet from the train. BS on that. I walked probably half a mile up the steep San Francisco hills avoiding bums and strollers.
My hotel room is really nice, small but nice. I even have a robe! The bathroom is emmaculate and I have surround sound in my room. Uncle Vitos is a kick ass restaurant if you want some real italian taste in a greasy see through bag.

Intro: First of all I'm going to try and do this off the top of my head so if I get the facts wrong or confused I apologize.
A little history about myself. I didn't really start getting into rock n roll until 1998 while taking a Bach to Rock class in high school. I was a fan of Nirvana and 311 but I didn't have any interest in knowing anything else about the bands and just wanted to hear the music. Bach to Rock class changed that as I was introduced to a band that changed rock music history as we know it; This band...The Beatles.
The Beatles "White Album" is up there as one of my favorite albums of all time as it features many genres including folk, country, rock, psychodelic/goa, hiphop, funk, and blues all mixed in together which is to this date the only album I know that is like this. The album itself was given its name the "White Album" simply because the album sleeve was white with the words The Beatles embossed in an off center fashion on the cover. There is nothing on the sleeve or vinyl itself that gives it that name "White Album". The album was produced in 1968 by George Martin and Chris Thomas during one of The Beatles most frustrated times that they have ever had together. At this time The Beatles were heavily involved with Maharishi Yogi in India as well as experimenting with new types of hallucinogen drugs not to mention the involvement of Yoko Ono was at its highest level.
After returning from India to record this album, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were very frustrated with each other so much that they recorded the album in two separate studios with two separate producers (names mentioned above). Paul wanted the Beatles to go in one direction with their musical style and wanted to separate John from Yoko. John wanted to do his style harder/darker rock and was very much in love with Yoko and was tired of hearing all the crap the rest of the Beatles were dishing out about their relationship. On top of that, the Beatles mentor/idol/teacher the Maharishi of India was accused of trying to rape Mia Farrow which led to the departure of the Beatles from India.
According to George Martin, Paul wanted to record this album with a softer melodic style as John wanted a psychedelic, harder, darker style thus leading to Paul and John having lead sing their style and their own songs throughout the album.
Some McCartney Songs:
Helter Skelter: Paul actually wanted to spice things up with Helter Skelter making it the hardest rocking song he's ever written. The reason he wrote it this heavy was his response to The Who's "I can see For Miles" track which was pretty heavy. The heavy guitar rifts, and lyrics influenced many people including none other than Charles Manson. Manson heard these lyrics and believed that it was a warning of a race war. He thought of the Beatles as the Four Angels of the Apocalypse and dubbed the race war Helter Skelter. Helter Skelter is also a ride in Great Britian.
Some other songs credited to McCartney are Blackbird, Ob-la-di Ob-la-da, Rocky Racoon, Honey Pie.
Funny story about "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da". The opening piano part to the song was recorded many many times by a very drug induced Paul McCartney. Finally after twenty or so tries, John Lennon came into the studio and yelled, "I am higher right now than I have ever been, Higher than you've ever been, Higher than you'll ever be, and the opening should go like this..." and he played the opening piano line which was recorded and put on the album
Some Lennon Songs:
Yer Blues: This song was recorded due to the rising popularity of Blues music and the decline in psychedelic. John pretty much said you want your blues music well here are yer blues. The lyrics refer to him missing Yoko back when they were in India.
Dear Prudence: This was written to Mia Farrow's sister who was in India with them at the time. She was very shy and didn't want to come out of her room she was staying in.
Revolution 9: The most psychedelic record on this album and the first goa type of song that I know of. This had really early electronica in there as there are different sound bites from television shows some played backwards; creepy screams and noises in a surround sound format. Awesome!
Some other notable tracks are As My Guitar Gently Weeps which Eric Clapton was brought onto record.
"Goodnight" is an awesome lullaby which the music was written by Ringo Starr while lyrics were provided by John Lennon. Very soft, melodic, McCartney style song that Lennon would sing to his son at night time. Personally my favorite song on the disc as it seemed to bring a perfect close to this album.
Actual Track list
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

-The outcome of this album had Martin, being frustrated with all the drugs and fighting had a breakdown and left producing this album in the middle of its recording and to this day cannot listen to the White Album.

-Its on my freakin blog

I ended up watching 40 year old virgin last night again. The first time I saw it I fell asleep half way through it. Good news this time around as I fell asleep in the other half that I didn't fall asleep on before. I don't see what all the big fuss is on it.
One of the hardest words for me to say is Rural. What's one of yours?
I was on my way home from my Fiance's today and the police had the road blocked off. Either a really bad accident or another deer got hit. Damn Commericaliztion Revolution!
All the poor animals and critters are being ran out of their natural habitat with no where to go except to where Humans are. Then we end up killing them and they are "Invading our Neighborhoods" B.S. on all that as we invaded them.
An alaskan oil pipe line was shut down today due to corrosion. That line supplies the US with 8 percent of its oil so expect gas prices to go up about....ready? 45 cents a gallon. I remember I used to say when gas prices started passing 2 dollars a gallon that we are never seeing 1.99 or less for gas again. Well so far I'm right and the oil industry keeps uping the ante so when gas prices are 2.99 a gallon we can be all happy.
I wanted to center this blog around one of my favorite if not my favorite album, The Beatles White Album. I've read awesome stories and listened to interviews regarding this album and they are simply awesome. I will share them with you tomorrow..
I sounded like freakin Mr. Rogers there.

Yesterday I drove by the site of the dead deer and in fact, it is still there. I noticed some of its leg bone is popping out...poor thing
Well..another boring weekend at home...I wish I had some friends that hit me up and say hey lets do something. Oh well, I did get my TV fixed from CC. Did an exchange so hopefully this one doesn't break.
I really enjoy talk radio wanna know why? Well it's because I feel like I am in a conversation with someone yet I don't have to say anything back.
My blog has been really boring lately..I guess there is still a lot on my mind and being stuck here with no where really to go just sucks ass. Maybe I will go to the Casino tonight and play the penny slots.

I saw a dead deer on the way to work today. I felt bad as its eyes were still open and I can only hope that its bambinos are safe.
I had good topics to talk about but I have completly blanked out and don't have a clue on what I was going to say.
I have a HUGE problem with those pesky carpool drivers who think they have the right to drive in the carpool lane because they are driving their kid somewhere. I think that is totally misuse of the highways since they aren't really carpooling. Seriously, how can that be carpool? Their kids can't drive. They aren't keeping the air any cleaner. Total BS. Any highway patrol readers should pull over and ticket these drivers.
I also have a problem with those Amber Alert signs that you see while driving the freeway. They are good to have in case someone is kidnapped, but seriously, do I have to know that it is going to take 30 minutes to drive to Los Angeles? If no one is kidnapped, leave the signs off!
On that subject I saw an Amber Alert sign recently saying so and so got kidnapped by a male (always seems to be the case) and they are driving a gray sentra. Every gray car I see while driving I think is the kidnapper. Not so happy ending in this story as the kidnapper and his victims were all found dead behind a Supermarket.
I saw a television show on the Travel Channel last night called Extreme Foods: Asia or something similar to that. I work with a few yellow men myself and have witnessed eating of chicken leg/feet with the little goose bumps still on the leg! GROSS....not as gross as this television show. Rooster Testicles (which I laughed at because they are cock balls), ant larvae, Frogs on a stick ala hotdog on a stick, catepillars, etc. You get my drift, F'N sick shit. Someone needs to buy charlie some pepto.
I'm alone this weekend as my fiance is going out of town with her mom for a Mother / Daughter get away before the wedding. Look we all know shes going to get drunk with mom. I hope they catch a donkey show while in San Diego. Watch for your cousins as they run across the freeway babe.
Crap another story just left my head.
5 days and counting folks until I take my first flight to San Francisco. My Mom always told me always wear clean underwear in case something happens. Sorry Mom, but I will probably crap my pants on the way to the airport anyways so the clean underwear won't help any.
Oh ok I remember. Blog reader The Hero asked about the Duke of Fullerton. The Duke of Fullerton aka Mr. Duncan...ah too obvious...Robert D is an alumni of Cal State Fullerton. If we were doing a test on Robert D., the question would be Al Bundy is to Polk High as Robert D. is to..A) DeVry, B) MIG, C) Women's Lib, or D) Cal State Fullerton. There is an ongoing joke with the Duke as we all assume he is rich thus we (The Wrider, Myself, Birdman, and That Guy) go way over the top on his wealth. For instance, his new house that he purchased in Fullerton...you have to cross a draw bridge to get into the compound seriously...I mean, how many 28 year olds can say hey, I have a helicopter landing pad in the back of my house...
Ahh I miss the blog
