I was successful at getting tickets for my Daughter for BTS at the Rosebowl... Twice...
But I was unsuccessful at getting tickets for the Damned and Jello Biafra at Alex Bar... Twice...

Pretty sure this is literal hell...

This NZ shooting, facebook live stream, 8chan and pewdiepie stuff put together is beyond depressing. Even as someone who has a pessimistic outlook on the world, I didn't expect humanity to fall this far. Good luck to those bringing kids into this world.

we are pretty cyclical... dark ages. Hopefully it doesn't last long or result in our extinction. We could use a good renaissance

really good hang session with the guys from Green Day. It doesn't surprise me they are down to earth and good company.
What i didn't know is that Mike and Billy Joe have been playing together since they were 10 years old. Man, I was playing sax at that age and haven't kept a band longer than 8 years. Those guys really love each other and seem like they deserve their success in a way I had never guessed. I loved their ep's smooth and kerplunk. I didn't let them know that, though.

Well... the blockchain start up I had been working with for the last 14 months went public and is now growing exponentially. What was cool about being part of it isn't there anymore. I'm getting out and consulting back to them and another group I've worked with for years. Good thing I bought a place with a nice office space....

Hey guys. Anyone of you tried out the Lebron Witness 3? Thinking of buying a budget shoe for outdoor use and spotted a good platinum colorway but I'm not sure about the outsole. It was a bit translucent and I'm afraid it'll be soft.

Anyone seen em in person?

If you're a young guy in SoCal and you're not working at Trader Joes, I believe you're doing yourself a great disservice...
They've got a great corporate structure, and the clientele is top notch...

Did you know you can get diarrhea from eating too much black pepper? That's what I found out over the Easter vacation.

I also chipped a tooth while chewing on my keys and the dentist isn't returning an appointment request, so I look like a regular bubba now.

I eat my oatmeal savory so I was grinding pepper in a spice grinder and went overboard.

No way. I eat my congees with probably 2 tbsp of black pepper on top.

Well if you do it everyday, then...

Injured my eye last week. Corneal abrasion but it's all good. Muscle relaxant still causing my eye to dilate, so I'm seeing flashes from time to time.

But my story really is this other patient who got mud in his eye while cycling. Guess what he saw the following day? This leech was chilling on his eyeball and under his eyelid. Crazy.

Those things are crazy, I've read about a case where a woman cleaned her contacts with water and ended up getting a parasite that ate her cornea slowly over 6 months.

Always rinse with disinfectant kids.
