First and Foremost before I say anything else, I would like you to share a moment of silence with me.

Joe Strummer (1952 - 2002), May you lie at rest and never be forgotten.

Why is it always that the good that die too young???

Well the last weekend before Christmas is over. Today is my last day of work until next week, 6 glorious days off in a row. Yaaaayyyyyy!!! Christmas here I come.

To tell you the truth, My christmas holidays have officially started this past weekend. Today I can't really count. Even though we had quite a shitload of calls today. Went and saw Wax Mannequin last Saturday night. And there is really nothing that I can say about the show except that is left me speechless as usual. You can read Tony’s blog from today for more information about the show.

Leanne and I were with my father and his girlfriend for the majority of the day yesterday. We took them out for dinner and went to the Festival of Lights. I won’t really get into it and bore you but I will say this… My father takes a lot of energy from me, well I guess it is not my father as much as the relationship with his girlfriend that he has. He is a stubborn German man, which is bad enough in and of itself, but when you mix that with a stubborn German girlfriend… well then you are askin’ for more than just a box of cookies.

Leanne said it best when we dropped them off,
“..well, I’m good till next year!”

Sometimes you just come across great albums now and again that just blow your mind. Wax Mannequin's album "and gun" is one of those such albums. Speaking of which if you are reading this right now and if you happen to be in Regina this Saturday evening (Dec 21) I highly recommend that you go see Wax Mannequin at Cafe Ultimate. But anyway.. back to the album. I would go as far as to say this is my personal favorite album of 2002. Simply put. Pick yourself up a copy, you will be glad you did.

“Pick up a power blaster. You can shoot the lasers, you can be a master like the heroes on TV.”

Speaking of great albums. I heard an incredible album yesterday by a band called
Sadhappy. I never heard of them .. I just noticed the CD “Live – Before we were dead” sitting on my friend Rory’s desk. Now he was sick all week so I thought .. ah what the hell… I will spin it. And I was blown away! Three piece band – Sax, bass and drums. I would describe them as Morphine on speed.

When I came back to work this morning, Rory happened to be in because he was feeling better. I said to him .. Man!! This album was amazing!! Where did you hear about this band. I was thinking maybe he came across them on epitonic.com or something like that but no, the disc wasn’t even his. It was lent to him by another workmate. Sean.

WHAT?!?!? Sean!!! What the hell. This couldn’t be right.

Yup.. Sean. Workmate and drummer of the band, Parlor Trixx. This threw me for a loop because Sean and I never really saw eye to eye in musical tastes. For example: I listen to music, he listens to crap. It’s just that simple.

I guess I shouldn’t be that extreme there are some things that him and I both listen to… but for the most part, it is stuff that I don’t really listen to .. and I know he thinks the same thing for the majority of music that I listen to.

Hallelujah for individuality!!

Anyways as I was saying, I was thrown for a loop because that came from left field. Apparently Sean was buying drum pieces through ebay, and bought some from Even Schiller (the drummer of Sadhappy) himself and sent him this CD as a free copy to let Sean hear what kind of music he played.

I never thought I would say this but … Thank-you Sean. That album is amazing and I am glad you indirectly introduced me to them by accident.

Fucking prick.

I caught myself at the Oprah website today. Why? I just recently found out that Michael Moore was on there about a month ago talking about his movie "Bowling For Columbine". (Which, by the way, is a MUST SEE movie) I wish I saw that episode of Oprah. I never did...But he cool thing was I was able to watch the web archive of what happened after the show. There was even a second page on it as well. Actually .. the more I look into it .. the more I think Oprah had 2 seperate shows for michael moore promoting his show.

Granted I am not a huge fan of Oprah. But I think it is pretty cool when she has things like this on her show, because she is reaching a bunch of people out there who most likely would have never even heard of Michael's latest movie and I am sure that this has helped ticket sales without a doubt.

I just finished watching the first season of Michael Moore's show "The Awful Truth" And I am going to watch the the second season this week sometime as well. The library had both of the seasons on video. These shows are so great ... I just wish I saw them earlier. These DVD's are going to be placed in my "must purchase" list for the future.

I think I am turning into a Michael Moore junkie.

"Swearing is the crutch of an inarticulate motherfucker."

That was originally going to be the quote for tonights show ... but for obvious reasons, I am not going to say it.

Well I just got a call. The muffler (or should I say the pipe before the muffler is fixed and .. the tires are replaced in the front and the wheel alignment is done. Over 300 dollars later. I can drive the car again. .. oh yeah .. I never wrote about that ... the exhaust pipe before the muffler rusted out, gave way and fell off somewhere in good ol regina.

Hopefully someone with a BMW ran over the pipe and fucked his tires. That would be nice.

So.

It is now tuesday. And my shit is solid. I was sick all weekend. Woopee!! That is always fun.

I experienced Ass Juice for the very first time in my life. That was a pretty exciting discovery.

Speaking of Ass Juice... For some reason... over the weekend when I went to the Bloghop website. It took me directly to analwhores.com. What the hell was with that? I hate computer geeks that have nothing better to do with there lives than do break into someones webpage and do shit like that to it. Tony's and mine website is still down because of little fucking geeks like that.

So those of you who from bloghop that know that there usually is a rating system on the page, please be paitient. I will get the rating back up in the next little while .. maybe a day or so .. I am still weary of the whole analwhores thing.

I am not a big fan of anal.

OK... I was reading my friend Ken's blog site and he was talking about reality shows.

This reminded me of a "reality show" I saw last night called Extreme Makeover.

This show was stupid. 3 "lucky" people were picked out of thousands that applied to get this extreme makeover which included plastic surgery, liposuction, hair styles, clothing, yada yada yada.. The whole nine yards. They go away for 6 weeks or so to have all this done and they have no contact at all with there family and friends the whole time. I don't know who was dumber .. the thousands of people who applied to be on this show? or the millions of viewers (like me) who actually watched it.

There was one scene that I truly enjoyed and if I had it on tape .. I would watch it over and over again and laugh my ass off. When the 3 people had there surgery done, they all met each other in the hotel room and sat there barely being able to talk to one another. One was bed-ridden and the other two, were strolled into his hotel room in wheel chairs. The three of them sat there and had small talk chat.. not only because they didn't really know each other .. but they could barely fucking speak to one another because there faces were all bandaged up and shit .. saying things to each other .. like "you look good" ... LOOK GOOD?!?!? Fuck that !! They all look like beasts! What they should have done was showed some of the true footage like ... "Holy Fuck .. This recovery is fucking painful!! Man I am retarded to get this done!"

What the hell is our world coming to.. Nowadays ... plastic surgery is the way to go I guess. Personally I see no reason for it at all. Unless you were in a accident or something. Then sure I think it is great .. but if it is just because you are not happy with the way you look? .. well let me tell you ... if you can't be happy with who you are now, you never will be.


Now I admit .. I am a fan of Big Brother .. but that is about it.

*GASP*

YES!!!!!!!!!

I just found ot that theNEWDEAL put out a new CD a couple of weeks ago!!

it is a double live album from New York

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!

OK .. I was just talking about how things change in a short period of time. Here is another example.

In the past 19 hours.. Yo Yo Ma was an American, then Canadian..then American.. ..then Canadian.

Now currently.. He's American.

So Tony quit and rejoined the radio show in less then a week, even before his "final show" on New Years Eve.

It just reconfirms to me .. how much things can change in a small period of time.. just like Leanne being in the hospital a couple of days ago and people like her mother saying .. "she was in the hospital??"

I once went out with a girl for 5 minutes.

So since I last wrote on Monday afternoon, I took my wife to the hospital.

She woke up not long after my last post and she kept on throwing up and crapping non stop. She was so out of it that I decided to take her right to the hospital. They put her on an IV as soon as we got there pretty much. To make a long story short they ended up keeping her there over the evening. That night was a killer for me, because here I am at home .. and my wife is in the hospital and she never been in a hospital before.. and at that time .. they never gave us any information on what her blood and urine tests showed. So of course I start thinking of the worst.

I did happen to sleep that evening for about maybe an hour. Had a nightmare of going back to the hospital the next day to go pick her up, only to find that she died.

Dreams like that are kind of a bummer.

She is at home right now.. still sick and most likely in bed right now. The Doctor ordered that she was not supposed to work for the rest of the week .. they assured us that the baby was going to be ok. .. I don't think I will feel 100% about that until the ultrasound happens. Which should be soon I hope. She is going to the doctor tomorrow for an update checkup on how she is feeling now .. and has a prenatal exam on the 16th.. by then hopefully we will have an ultrasound set up.

It is Monday afternoon and I just woke up a little while ago from a late evening of "fun".

My wife was up all night till about 7 this morning, with... what I think was "food poisoning" from a christmas party she was at last night. I was also thinking that she could of got that flu bug that has been going around but .. her stomach was in constant pain. Now .. the pain has gone away.. but only after "relieving" herself over the 9 hours before she finally fell asleep.

I want her take her to the hospital .. but I am not going to go now because she finally seems so peaceful now that she is sleeping that I don't want to disturb her. I will she how she feels after she is rested.

Man .. it is amazing how much time goes by when one is busy.

As some of you may have noticed. You are not able to get to the cranial explosions website...(so .. which would also most likely mean that you are not able to read this right now... unless you went straight to the blog posting)

it is under maintence right now. The server got attacked from some dumbass computer geek, and he was corrupting files on the server and other computers who are connected to that server just because he can.

That fucker should be shot and pissed on.

Hopefully the website will be up in the next little while. Unfortunately .. it is something that I can't control.
