The Devil May Care

Two nights ago hundreds of sweaty, drunk law students piled into a hall and proceeded to mess things up. And the floor. And the area at the back where they kept the booze. Oh, the booze. Let's just say things still hurt today, and that's after I slept for 12 hours. Lessons learned. Once again Flickr can say it better than my words.

The gay bouncers confused me.

Which way to the clay courts?

I don't think I can properly explain how much I love this photo.

Respect Copyright Activities Patch

I love it when reality totally overshadows any kind of fantasy which you or I or Warren freakin' Ellis could think up.

Remember boy scouts? I do. The fire starting. The are-you-a-pedophile leaders. The way everyone was named after characters from the jungle book. And the patches. Oh, the patches.

If you were to join the boy scouts now, there's an exciting new patch you can earn. The Respect Copyrights Activity Patch.

Isn't that what every boy dreams about? Getting into nature, catching some wild bootleg DVDs and promptly turning them in to the proper authorities. Man, that just gets the blood boiling.

As seen on BrooklynVegan.

Oh Canada


This is a rock concert...not splish splash

There was a time in the 80's when the men looked like women and the women looked like Debbie Gibson. Those days are thankfully, or depending on your tastes unfortunately, over, but the music lives on...at least on this blog.

Poison - Unskinny Bop

Why are these dudes wearing so much make-up? I'll tell you why - because they have balls the size of bocce balls, that's why. These guys are so hetero they can look like slightly toasted hookers and still pull every chick in the crowd.

Def Leppard - Pour Some Sugar on Me

Apparently this song is about ___________. Oh man, is it ever.

Metallica - Enter Sandman

Lollapalooza. That might be spelled wrong. Guitarist from Hole, can't be bothered to Google name, launches into this guitar riff. Made me forget about the guy trying to crush my larynx.

Run D.M.C. & Aerosmith - Walk This Way

One of the best songs ever? Yes.

Ah, Turkey. Turkey, turkey, turkey. Turkey...two times? That's how I roll yo. And if I have to go to three Thanksgiving dinners, so be it.

This weekend saw the most eating I've done since the Back to Back Chinese Weddings of '02. And the most pumpkin based products since the days of costumes with built in feet. Thanks to my sister for hosting an awesome dinner (yam and pecans and brown sugar = bomb diggety); to the Mahs for letting us crash their family meal (yam and pecans and brown sugar=bomb diggety); and to Catherine for hosting an orphan meal for all us vagabond urchins (this was the first Thanksgiving in memory I haven't spent with my parents who abandoned us for the Middle Kingdom).

Voska Dour brought a delicious medley of beets which was enjoyed both with and without sour cream. My vote - leave the cream for the taters. If you are still in the Thanksgiving mood visit his blog for a song that is all about being thankful.

Here is the weekend in Flickr style. (I love Flickr, but why does the uploader insist on reversing the order?)

Thanksgiving and the Weekend Comes

It's so turkey time. And stuffing time. And pumpkin pie time. This year the 'rents are in China (cradle of f$#king civilization!), so I'm off to the island to chow with my sister and her fiance, then back to have what is certain to be a memorable Thanksgiving with Charlie and the Voska Dour.

It's also the weekend, and here's a tune that's so old, the Black Eyed Peas didn't suck and they had a real singer working the hook.
