A New Year is Upon Us

Christmas 2008 has come and gone in a flash.

I received some pretty cool gifts including a nice trenchcoat wool jacket for work, a nice wallet, even received an e-mail Christmas Card from Bean. The present I am desperately waiting for is my new house. Mrs. Audio and I have been waiting for this gift for two months and it is finally closing today. Its a nice size house about 2000 sqft and a huge lot. Its no longer in Riverside but in Fontana...Fontucky...Funktana...but its in a nice area of the city. I can't wait for the 4th of July because I think it is still legal to do fireworks so i'm pretty hyped. If the closing gets postponed a third time I will seriously be pissed.

With that being said, new years doesn't look like much will happen on the eve. With all the B.S. that happened on a personal level this year I am glad to see it go with a hell of a lot better things going on next year.

Have a good and safe new year!

Almost Acoustic Christmas review

Quick Update...I heard Kanye West is the surprise guest for Night 2...totally blows as they coulda used him last night

Well, before I went to Acoustic Christmas I almost sold my ticket but chose to keep it.

Do I regret it? No not really, but the concert itself wasn't that spectacular.

I missed Hollywood Undead and Slightly Stoopid because well, I rather stay outside and watch interviews of bands. I listed to some of Hollywood Undead before I went just to see if I wanted to see them, and well, yeah...not so good...Sorry Mama can't give a review of them for your daughter.

Three Days Grace- Pretty good set. I wasn't expecting much from them but they had some good tracks and hard bass and drum lines. I hate everything about you was their big hit of the night.

Staind- I have ALWAYS liked Staind since back in like 99/00. Their sets are always good and this one was no let down. I thought it was weird that they didn't play Outside or Fade...then again they have been played on the radio so much that it was nice to hear the not so played out songs.

A.F.I. - My first time EVER seeing this band and I have to say they were THE BEST of the night. I thought it sucked that KROQ gave AFI a half hour set while Rise Against took an hour, then again all the teenyboppers like Rise Against right now. AFI played ALL their hits including one from 1993. The pit finally awoke during their set and everyone in the building was standing for AFI. They said they would be back during summer for a tour. During the Kevin and Bean interview there was a hint that they would be at the Weenie Roast. Silver and Cold, as well as The Leaving Part 2 live....totally awesome!

Stone Temple Pilots - I was really excited to see this band live as I had only seen Scott Weiland with Velvet Revolver. Into the second song of STP's set, my excitement turned to disappointment. STP just didn't look into it. First, Scott Weiland came out looking like The Undertaker from the WWE with a big black hat,black coat and a gray scarf. By the third song, Weiland was stripped down to a Mr. Furley type shirt, and black pants while sweating horribly. Between songs he would mumble about who knows what and the music would just start in the middle of him talking. Horrible horrible...My friend was watching from home and she texted me saying she is selling her STP tickets for New Years Eve based on this performance. Weiland needs to kick the drinking...

The Offspring - Was excited to see this band as well as I have never seen them before either. Umm...Did someone force Dexter to "Come Out and Play" (pun intended) because he looked like he did not want to be there. Noodles looked way more into it than Dexter. They played all their radio hits and while the crowd was going off, Dexter would just sing and stare into the crowd. Their set was so boring I left half way through their set.

My last acoustic christmas I saw NIN, System of a Down, and Korn and I think that concert was the best yet and nothing except for Radiohead back in August has compared.

Here are some pics from the show...i'll post more later

Winter time is coming...I think

I saw this posted on Drudgereport today and was shocked...I LOVE odd weather from hail to thunderstorms to strong winds...but am super excited if this is to occur next week

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - December 8, 2008 ( Rare 50 year Arctic Blast Sets Sights On Southern California.

With a week away, and a sure sign of things to come, is making preparations on the server to handle the traffic from this next event. UJEAS is in line with the majority if not all the other models in keeping a near historical arctic air mass into the Southern California region.

With a warm November, Southern California is finally ready for cold storms to make their way in. Resort level snow will be likely next week, and in pretty hefty amounts if things stay on track. Meteorologist Kevin Martin predicts a 50 year event. While Martin is usually conservative on these events, the pattern highly favors it. "We are in a pre-1950 type pattern, "said Martin. "We know we are due for a winter storm sometime this year. The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region. With this, may come low elevation snow."

Forecaster Cameron Venable is seeing very cold temperatures in the Los Angeles areas as well. Torrance is not usually known for winter weather, thus making this an interesting event for Venable to track.

"Temperatures in Siberia, Russia will be -81 degrees this week, "said Martin. "With those type of temperatures the arctic air mass has to spill somewhere. Our answer of the exact track will become more clear this week. All residents in the mountain communities should prepare this week for very cold, winter weather, with snow."

Indications are a second, colder storm could hit near the 18th-22nd time-frame. The details on that will have to be sorted out.

For the Fishes

Ok so I am not a good pet owner...

I had two fishes last week and this week they simply disappeared. I have NO explanation for it whatsoever but they are gone. I checked their little cave, the filter, and the table and its surroundings.....Nothing

Hardcore Rave in the Sky

I just found out today that a DJ i used to look up to and was inspired by passed away. Jeff Besler aka DJ Tron from Chicago passed away doing what he loved best, in his studio preparing for a DJ set here in Los Angeles...He was 34.

I got into the underground Rave scene back in 1996. Tron (Torturous Rage of Noise) was one of the first DJ's I heard of. Known for his harder, darker, and extremely fast genre of Techno music, he was a huge inspiration for me to begin mixing what is known as Hardcore / Gabber underground music.

One of my best memories of him was a Rave in 1999 called Oracle. This rave was held in 3 different buildings in downtown Pomona with the Hardcore Techno room being held at Yesteryears night club. Tron was spinning an insane set. Picture the room about 100 x 100 feet. Two of the four walls had speakers from the ground to the ceiling with the dj booth in the middle. The crowd was the most insane I had ever seen. Speedcore at its finest with Tron going back to back with Delta 9, another famous Hardcore Techno dj. This was the first time that they had played together that I could remember. It was a fun night that ended with some bruised legs and ringing ears. Thanks Tron for the memories and inspiration. You will not be forgotten!

Hey There

Sorry...been going through some more drama courtesy of the a-hole of the f-i-law. Hopefully things will get better soon so my mind is clear enough to write.

With Halloween just around the corner I thought this post would fit the season...Odd ways of dying.

You always hear about deaths that revolve around natural causes or diseases...but what about those weird deaths that you just shake your head and say what?!?!

Here are some notable odd deaths.

Carol Gotbaum, died trying to escape from police. No, she didn’t get shot down in a desperate escape. No, she didn’t careen off the highway on a high speed chase. She died by strangling herself trying to escape out of handcuffs.
In 2007, an unlucky cab driver found two bodies. One of a man and another of a woman, both attire-less and dead at a base a 50 story building in Columbia, South Carolina. Apparently the authorities found their clothing and identification at the top of the building. They fell off the building while having sex.
Jennifer Strange, died of water intoxication during a “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest in Sacramento, California. Can we say that the Wii is boring after 20 minutes and is only fun when you’re drunk. Oh…one more thing, she came in second. If you’re going to die for a Wii, you better well come in first place.
A 28-year-old Korean named Lee Seung Seop, (p.s. I am so ashamed. Way to represent my race, man), died in an Internet cafe after playing 50 straight hours of Star Craft.
You might have heard this guy, Timothy Treadwell, the subject of that documentary, ‘Grizzly Man.’ He lived with Grizzly bears in Alaska for 13 summers and one day, he was half-eaten by one while another ate his girlfriend. I used to live in Alaska, bears will eat you and they don’t want to be your friend. Period.
Brian Wells, rigged himself with a bomb around his neck and proceeded to rob a bank. This pizza deliveryman hatched the grandest of schemes that would make a heist in Ocean’s 11 seem tame. He would tell people that someone told him to rob a bank or the bomb around his neck would go off if he didn’t. Well, Brian forgot that he inadvertently made a real bomb and it went off. Thanks Brian, you still make people smile, four years later.
Canadian attorney Garry Hoy in Toronto wanted to show a group of potential lawyers how unbreakable the windows of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Tower were by hurling himself at them. After two demonstrations and 24 stories later, Mr. Hoy met the ground.
Isadora Duncan is a legendary dancer, but in 1927, she got herself into an ultimate fight against a car wheel. While riding in an automobile in Nice, France, her long silk scarf got caught in the wheel and dragged her until she died before the driver realized she had fallen off. Moral of the story? Don’t wear fashionable silk scarves in an open top car.
Former U.S. President William Henry Harrison showed that you really need to put a jacket on in the cold. He died one month into his term as President because he didn’t wear a coat during in inaugural speech. He died a month later of pneumonia.

Dinner Conversation

So yesterday, the wife and I met up with some of her friends to have dinner at Claim Jumpers. They lived in Vermont while going to school for a few years so there was some catching up to do...

One question that I asked them half way through the dinner...

Me: "What airline is Vermont's regional airline?"

Them (including wife): "Huh?"

Me: "You know, like Southwest is the cheap regional airline for here, what's Vermont's?"

Well about 15 minutes of them trying to answer my question it came out that jetBlue was Vermont's regional airline.

I did the research for you and found the following airlines are for regional flights...
* Allegheny Airlines
* AmericanConnection
* ATA Connection (defunct)
* Bonanza Air Lines
* Continental Connection
* Continental Express
* Delta Connection
* Frontier JetExpress
* Frontier Airlines
* Midwest Connect
* Midway Connect (defunct)
* Mohawk Airlines
* North Central Airlines
* Northwest Airlink
* Pan Am Express (defunct)
* Piedmont Airlines
* Southern Airways
* Southwest Airways (renamed Pacific Air Lines in 1958)
* United Express
* US Airways Express
* West Coast Airlines
* America West Express (defunct, now operates as US Airways Express)
* American Eagle (extant, for detailed information about the brand refer to American Eagle, as discussed under Executive Airlines operations, and American Eagle Airlines code-share operations inherited from TWA Connection)

Something New

I tried something new today...

Using my computer mouse with my left hand. It was awkward at first but started getting used to it right away. I had to switch back though cause the cord wasn't long enough.

Radiohead at the Hollywood Bowl:

Hollywood Bowl is one of the most awesome places to see a concert...but parking sucks really bad...i forgot you could take food into the venue so ended up spending 20 bucks on a dog...and chips...

This was my first time seeing Radiohead live but have always heard of how awesome they were live...They surpassed my expectations...From the beginning of their set to the end was a light show from these tubular light bulbs hanging from the top of the stage to the bottom...the colors changed colors with the beat...there was then a still video camera on each band member that was shown on each side of the stage that kind of had an old style appearance.

Thom the lead singers voice is awesome live...First band that I have seen that is BETTER than their cd....

Another amazing part of their set was during their song "National Anthem", Jonny Greenwood, guitarist searches for radio stations and plays them on a delay...and different commercials are played during the song...its freakin the end of National Anthem the Fletcher Jones Mercedes commercial was played...Rancho Cucamonga, Can you Hear Me?

My favorite song of the evening was Faust Arp...Freakin AWESOME live!! You see the still shot in this video

All in all was probably my favorite concert ive been to since Acoustic Christmas 05.

1. 15 Step
2. There There
3. Morning Bell

Motorboat Def...and Prison

This is for The Wrider

This is the definition for Motorboating and is from

The placement of one's face, specifically the mouth, into the area between a well-endowed woman's breasts, followed by a rapid shaking of the face in a side-to-side motion accompanied by yelling. The resulting sound that is created sounds similar to an outboard boat motor.

Sherry was wearing a low-cut top and Mike approached her and started motorboating in her cleavage.

This is my original post

PORTLAND, Ore. - A New York man who pleaded guilty to murder in Oregon in exchange for buckets of fried chicken will get calzones and pizza to go with his life sentence.

Tremayne Durham, 33, of New York City, admitted last month that he fatally shot Adam Calbreath, 39, of Gresham, in June 2006. Durham wanted to sell ice cream and ordered an $18,000 truck from an Oregon company. He later changed his mind, but the company wouldn't provide a refund.

The would-be ice cream man came to Oregon and killed Calbreath, a former employee of the company, while looking for its owner, authorities said.

Durham agreed to plead guilty to murder — but only if he could get a break from jail food. The judge agreed and granted Durham a feast of KFC chicken, Popeye's chicken, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, carrot cake and ice cream.

After Wednesday's sentencing, Durham was to get the rest of the deal — calzones, lasagna, pizza and ice cream, his defense attorney confirmed. They will pay the tab.

Durham also got married Wednesday in a civil ceremony at the Portland courthouse. The wedding to Vanessa Davis, 48, also of New York City, was not part of the plea deal that will give Durham a chance for parole after 30 years.

Deputy District Attorney Josh Lamborn said Multnomah County Judge Eric Bergstrom made the right call in allowing the unusual plea agreement because it saved the expense of a trial and possible appeals.

finally inspired

well a picture tells a thousand words...advisory is suggested for the queezy...

a while back birdman wrote about dude with different stances at the urinal...well now its my turn to write about dudes taking a deuce...


Quiet dudes....these guys don't make a noise let alone drop a deuce until other dude in the bathroom leaves...this same dude also won't wipe until other dude leaves the bathroom as he is afraid of being seen...

Sigh Guy- There is nothing worse than walking into the bathroom and hearing another guy sigh or slight moan when one gets released. there is just something very unnerving about it...

Blows it out dude- there is always dude who just blows it out and doesn't give an F if anyone else is in the bathroom. You could be washing your hands and dude says whats up on his way to the then hear the flaps and drops with no care whatsoever...he just blows it out to the point where it sounds like it hurts...have some respect Blows it out dude

Guy on Cell - besides Sigh Guy, nothing can be worse than to hear someone on their cell phone while taking the kids for a swim. I'm sure the other person on the phone can hear the echos off the porcelain but dude doesn't care. He wants to dial his faves while doing his fav...

Please place your other observations if any....
