Crooks Put Squeeze On SpongeBob

Music: Merzbow and Pansonic – Live

Kenn24 just sent me this, which is funny because he and I talked about doing this earliar…

TROY, N.Y. — Missing: giant, yellow cartoon sponge wearing square pants.
Police say inflatable SpongeBob SquarePants figures have been swiped from the roofs of Burger King fast-food restaurants in New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maine, Tennessee and Utah.
In some cases, a ransom note was left.
Burger King is running the SpongeBob promotion in connection with a new movie for the animated Nickelodeon TV character. The show is on top of the cable Nielsen ratings.
Police admit that stealing SpongeBob may seem funny, but it’s still a crime. They don’t think the thefts at different locations are connected.

This Is War…

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

“More than 25 years have passed since the Moral Majority was born.  The fruit of our never-ending labors was blessed by God and became obvious to the world on November 2, 2004 when more than 30 million “faith and values” voters went to the polls and made the difference in America.

The battle is not over by any means.  We have thrown down the gauntlet.  The left is furious.  Everyone now knows that the stage is set for the church of Jesus Christ to turn this nation back to the faith of our fathers and the Judeo-Christian ethic.  New Supreme Court justices can overturn Roe vs. Wade.  The Federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution can forever define the family as one man married to one woman.  Any senator who opposes this FMA could face the same fate Sen. Tom Daschle experienced.  I truly believe we can bring 40 million “faith and values” voters to the polls in 2008 to assure that Sen. Hillary Clinton, or someone of her ilk, will never be president of this nation.  But, I need one million new charter members of TMMC immediately.”

We are all fucked.

$1143 and the Horses’ Ass

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

So I scored $1143 from my Ebay auctions. Awesome. Now hopefully collecting won’t be a problem.

Buske and King Ron came up to Boston this week so I went over to Grez’s to hang with them. Solid family…

Already stressing from a shitty day, I locked my keys in my car when I was at Nicole’s house. Great. Oh well, went and got some Tokyo City, which is always good. Thankfully Jahanna saved my ass with a ride home like she always does…
so somehow I have to figure out a way to get back into Boston and get my car.

Check what I’ve been forced to do


Friday, November 12th, 2004

Yeah. It’s snowing…

So last night, in a fit of anger, I tore a part of my car. A few months back Seabiscuit the world’s biggest racoon stole a peice of my bumber when he decided to run in front of my car. Well recently some parts that the bastard knocked loose have been making noise. Well in a head throbbing rage I kicked the lose part and ripped a whole section out. Moments after in Post Rage Depression I got worried that I may need that part. Well you will be happy to know that after much research I have discoverd the part to be the “air resonator”, which quiets your car, by removing it not only have I made my car sound like those shitty Honda Civics driven by dudes with sideways visors and goatees, but I’ve also raised my horsepower …
So cheers to my rage.

Balloon Knot

“You’re already there, why not? It doesn’t taste like anything…it SHOULDN’T taste like anything…it’s like licking a balloon knot.”
Perfect Mike, regarding licking girls’ assholes

Weekend Wrapup

Buske enjoying some Eggs Scoville in Albany, NY

This past weekend I meet THE PROMISE in Albany to ride with them for their weekend of shows…
cold as fuck, apparently it had snowed there earliar that day. When I got to the show there were like 200 (of the worst) kids in line ahead of me. I waited for like 5 minutes until I heard The Promise actually playing. Darted the line and made my way past all the shitty Zao fans to make my way up front to enjoy the set…
I can honestly say, religious bias aside, Zao is fucking awful, and as bad as they are, Misery Signals is worse…
Every Time I Die headlined, and I actually didn’t watch, I spent there set in Julie/Buske’s new SUV thingy shooting the shit with Anderson, Buske, and Lynn. We packed up and said our goodbyes to Andy Williams (Solid dude, who I never get to spend enough time with) and company…
We went to some place called the ’76 Diner for some after show eats. Good coffee. Jim Winters and I ate some questioable stuff…
The next morning we went over to Mike’s (aka Scoves) place and had some breakfast and watched a some old Earth Crisis videos with Jim Winters playing guitar…we laughed.
CT fucking sucks. With Honor is fucking amazing, as people, and as a band. I love watching them…kids go off. I quoting Buske’s Journal here-
“The crowds there have always just seemed to care more about moshing than anything else, and that night proved the same. At one point in the evening, I was doing our merch during With Honor’s set and this goofball kept walking back and forth, across the pit, in the very back shrugging his shoulders and head. The song ends and he walks up to a fellow goofball in disdain because everyone was up front singing along and there was “no one in the back to hit”. It’s lines like that that make me second guess why I still try and believe in this shit sometimes.”
Add that to Anderson and I being witness to a crowd of kids calling some dude a “nigger” and then looking for rocks to throw at his car, and some jockish motherfuckers kicking kids in the face, and we were all glad to get the fuck outta there…
We had to get up early to get on the road since we had at load in time of 1, Buske and I where up late giggling like schoolgirls, it was hard to get up. We got Syracuse and stopped in to DJ’s to wish Elijah a happy 3rd birthday, the little king wasn’t there, but it was awesome to see DJ, Sue, Gabby, McKaig, and Kitzel. We had some much needed coffee and then were off to the show. Syracuse is home to so many good people, I never get to spend enough time there… Nichole, Heck, Yumiko, Sarah, Brendon, JD got to hang for a bit with all of them. Watched VERSE fucking kill it, so good. WITH HONOR was again on it. It’s obvious that THE PROMISE calls Syracuse home, people went off. BANE was good as always, weird seeing them without Zac, who couldn’t make it for personal reasons. Got to spend some much missed time with Bedard and Dalbec. Fuck I miss those dudes…
Back to Albany were Buske and I decided to stay one more night at D•BO new place. We woke up and got some coffee, and said our goodbyes and headed back to NYC and Boston. I got a $190 speeding ticket, he got to see a wreck with dead people…Buske wins that one.
