So today on his show, Ruch Limbaugh blamed the creation of the Segway Scooter on his favorite boogeyman, 'liberalism'.

I think it's great, because it really shows how desperate he is, as well as his conservative cohorts who use him as a mouthpiece.

I just had to share this one.

Here we go:

Friday and saturday - flyering. Much fun.

Saturday - Punked out the PYF table at the show I flyered at. Fucking thieves. I wanted to make fun of Tad.

Sunday - Don't remember.

Monday - worked. Really sucked. Got out early, went for a walk with Burnes, built fun shit at Gregs, got coffee, slept.

Today - Got my copies of Bowling for Columbine from Snic, who had previously tried to steal them. Fucking little asshole. Went to show at Christian Youth Center... convinced God is trying to kill me. I must stop him at all costs... fucking christians.

Off to watch BfC.

02:13 am - Punk is still cool!
Wanna know why I think there is still potential for change in punk rock? Because of this song by Leftover Crack:

Gay Rude Boys Unite

Unity! HA! yer such a saint today
you may be anti racist but then you're anti gay
you may be ignorant from a lack of education
but if it's sympathy you see you seek
you better turn to another station

* Intolerant society rears it's ugly face
you're turning your native music into a homophobic disgrace
the gay ones, the straight ones, the white tan yellow and black
gay rude boys and girls, we're gonna take that dancehall back
we'll take it back!
because without respect there's gonna be nothing left

This double standard just won't sit that well with me
i come to say this and it's just the way it has to be
you know i'm not PC i'll shoot your kid at school
'cuz he's gonna grow up to be a fucking asshole just like you
you can celebrate your unity till every gay is dead
but why don't you stop your fronting with real unity instead
and on a better dime on this shitty little globe
we would crucify the racists and be bashing all the homophobes

* Intolerant society rears it's ugly face
you're turning your hardcore music into a homophobic disgrace
the gay ones, the straight ones, the white tan yellow and black
gay rude boys and girls, we're gonna take that dancehall back
we'll take it back, we'll take it back
because without respect there's gonna be nothing left

2000 triple zero stand up and take a look around
this ignorant fucking shit shouldn't happen in any town
so come on leave the closet and on your way out grab a bat
cuz there's a battle to be fought and the prize is fucking phat
autonomy from ignorance there's got to be a better way
but the racist, sexist homophobes and piggies gotta pay
but right now you got to get out of your fucking seat
and jam down to the faggot rythm's of that crack rock steady beat

Another boring weekend.

It's times like these... I wish I had some friends around here. Everyone I like lives somewhere else.

Well, step one is complete. On to step two.

What I mean is: I went back to my old work place, Challenge Park Extreme in Joliet. I was a paintball ref; it was the most fun one could have at a job.

I left when we first tried to unionize, since three kids took over, declared themselves in charge, and sold us out to management.

So... here I go. I have vowed to make that place a union shop, step by step.

Next step is to go reapply. That's for next week, after I get in touch with a few other local Wobblys.

I ordered Bowling for Columbine back when I lived with Snic.

After he pulled his shit, I changed the ship-to address on my buy.com account.

I believe Buy.com shipped my movie to Snic.

I swear to god, if that fucker has my movie, I'm gonna be pissed. Not only a liar, but now a thief.

Little asshole.

You know what? Alot of me is lost in my writing.

I mean, the way I talk, the sarcasm, the dramatic pauses, the tonal changes, the accentuation, the emphasis... it's lost when I type. My writing simply does not reflect the way I speak properly.

Anyways... I picked up the Mediocre Generica CD by Leftover Crack today; actually, Allison did and I owe her $.She'll get it within a day or two. Thanks bnabe.

It's a great CD. I've been on this CD buying spree lately.

Except that I've been getting more into labor rights (anti-racist work led into a critique of capitalism and racism [racism as a tool to control the workers], which led to anarchist ideas, which led to labor organizing [which fits nicely with anti-racist/anti-fascist work] and on it goes) and the music that goes with it, like Billy Bragg, Woody Guthrie, etc. I really like folk music. It's raw and powerful.

But some good gutter punk always rocks as well.

Now I need to smoke and blast some LOC real loud. And Smoke. Mostly smoke.


Quote of the Day:
The cities of Europe have burned before,
and they may yet burn again,
and if they do I hope you understand
That Washington will burn with them!
That Omaha will burn with them!
Los Alamos will burn with them!!!

I just got off work and I'm really tired.

I went to sleep at like 10 last night, which is nearly 5 hours earlier than I usually pass out. I felt good today, but now I'm tired as fuck.

I smoke too much. I really need to quit.

Caybe's been telling me to call Snic lately. Why? Why the fuck should I call someone who stabbed me in the back, ruined our friendship with his lies and bullshit, and threw me out of the house (which, if it wasn't for me he wouldn't have and his little fuck-I mean-girlfriend would still be in New Orleans) we shared, then apparently got our friends to take sides (something I tried to prevent, god help me) and ditch me.

Why should I call him? He has my number if he wants to grovel and apologize.

And that's the other thing; I was over all this shit till Caybe brought it up. I had my life in order, had a new place to live, started really doing what I want (living in Chicago, going on tour with the band, working my ass off on ARA and other projects) and Caybe has to go bringing this shit up again.

Sure I miss Snic, the kid was (I emphasize WAS) my closest friend; we were inseperable. Does that mean a friendship cannot end? I think not. Things end, everything ends at some time. It simply cannot be avoided; it is a fact of nature.

Do I want to see him? Somewhat, if only to spit in his face and tell him I wish he'd have offed his own lying two-faced ass by now.

Am I bitter? Damn right! Much as I try, I hold grudges against damn near everyone who fucks me over. Tell my landlord I'm going to burn down the apartment and I'll probably be pretty fucking pissed.

There's alot of shit I know about that little liar that I could use to fuck him over with, shit I know would make him lose alot of his 'friends', as well as that fucking apartment. Would I ever use it against him? No. A simple and succinct No. I'm above all that shit.

I have a decent job, a decent life, friends I can really count on, and a life to live now (not just sitting in some shithole garbage second-floor paying rent to a drug dealing abusive redneck). I have alot better existence right now, and if it weren't for him screwing me over like he did, I wouldn't be doing this shit right now.

In closing, I'm better off. I'm over it. I'm bitter, yet happy. He can go fuck himself. I wish him the same sense of humiliation and defeat I felt at the end of April, and all the worst of luck in whatever he may attempt. Karma be damned, I already was shat upon by it.

I'm off to work on websites. Snoogans.

12:10 pm - Another Saturday
So I just watched The Time Machine, the new version of the old Orson Welles' classic. It's a damn fine movie. Everyone should see it.

I need a haircut. The mohawk is long gone, replaced by this shaggy batch of fur I call hair.

I'm really tired lately... and I need a new job. The current one sucks, and I've been complaining about it for 2 and a half years now. I'm thinking of going back to my old job as a paintball ref at Challenge Park, for a number of reasons:
It's a hearless corporation
When I still worked there, we tried to unionize and got sold out by the kids who put themselves in charge.
Since I left almost three years ago, the employees have tried to unionize a number of times, probably close to ten by now. Everytime they try, they end up getting fired or walking out in disgust.

Now that I'm a wobbly, and can get help from the IWW I think I could pull it off. I just need to find out when the next union organizer training is going to be near here so I can go. Dammit, I still miss that job; it was the most fun anyone could have and get paid for. So I want to unionize and get these kids what they deserve.

I'm going to Indy tomorrow... gotta smash the fash. Oughta be fun.

I'm gonna go watch Old School now, since I need a good fucked up movie right about now. Then it's off to the baseball stadium for my pops birthday.

See ya, kids. Have fun.
