My favorite thing about this song is I used to blast it in my bed room and my snare and bass drums would be forced to play along. That and when I saw these old fuckers play and it made my ears bleed. Seriously though, this is like probably a top five punk song ever. plus this video is just a guy holding the record.
The NY Times magazine has a new article about how 20 somethings these days are way behind previous generations in becoming an "adult":
It’s happening all over, in all sorts of families, not just young people moving back home but also young people taking longer to reach adulthood overall. It’s a development that predates the current economic doldrums, and no one knows yet what the impact will be — on the prospects of the young men and women; on the parents on whom so many of them depend; on society, built on the expectation of an orderly progression in which kids finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and eventually retire to live on pensions supported by the next crop of kids who finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and on and on. The traditional cycle seems to have gone off course, as young people remain untethered to romantic partners or to permanent homes, going back to school for lack of better options, traveling, avoiding commitments, competing ferociously for unpaid internships or temporary (and often grueling) Teach for America jobs, forestalling the beginning of adult life.
i'm on board. 30's is the new 20's is what i keep telling myself. i think some of the reason for this is that most of our parents were part of the baby boomer generation that became adults early in their 20's and we see how little opportunity they had to really experience the rest of the world because they were locked in to their jobs and families. many can piggy back off of their parents financial stability which wasn't the case for our own parents. who really knows though, maybe it's just video game/cable tv induced laziness. read the article for some more professional explanations.
although i hate the music involved i have an odd sense of respect for these nihilistic, drug taking juggalos. i think the P.I. family should make an anthropoligcal journey to the 2011 festivities..
those pesky juggalo's also really let tila tequilla have it:
“I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, dudes were throwing huge stone rocks in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the shit out of the port-o-potty and threw shit and piss at me when I was onstage"
finally a group of south african scientists have solved a problem which kills more people in the world than any war combined: contaminated drinking water. millions of people die every year because of unsafe drinking water, but now they can gulp in peace due to some nanotechnology that looks like a tea bag. congrats south africa!
This is a pretty cool blog that I spent about an hour last night reading through. They basically attack fallacies and biases we all tend to have. Some of them are kind of no brainers, but some are really interesting. Definitely worth checking out. You are not so smart
Gulf oil spill: Are con artists posing as fishermen to scam BP?
"BP is investigating reports that its claims process, in which thousands of business owners affected by the oil spill have applied for damages, has been the target of scam artists.
In some instances, people have posed as fishermen to receive checks from BP. In others, swindlers masquerading as BP employees have tried to convince Gulf Coast residents to give them personal financial information.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries first alerted BP of the possible fraud."
"Sources involved with the meeting tell us LeBron had hired Rabbi Pinto for spiritual guidance for a "big merchandising meeting" that took place on a private yacht somewhere off the coast of NY just hours ago.
Rabbi Pinto -- a 37 year-old-man who speaks only Hebrew -- has met with all sorts of business moguls in the past ... and is considered by some to be a "spiritual guide" who consults on business matters.
We're told LeBron paid in the neighborhood of 6-figures to get Rabbi Pinto to sit in on today's meeting ... in which LeBron heard presentations from several "big time" retail execs."
ted stevens, a bumbling, un-informed, crooked senator, perished in a plane crash tuesday..
his finest hour, while discussing the net-neutrality bill:
"an internet was sent by my staff at 10 oclock in the morning, friday. i got it yesterday.. why?? because it got tangled up with all these things going on with the internet commercially!"
"and again, the internet is not something you just dump something on, it's not a big truck, it's a series of tubes! and if you don't understand those tubes can be filled, and if they're filled, when you put your message in it gets in line, it's gonna' be delayed by anyone who puts into that tube enourmous amounts of information..."
Considering Google is the most widely used search engine and a large portion of the population seeks answers to life's most important questions through the internets, it's not that far fetched to think that the search suggestions offered by Google represent the most common pressing questions of humanity. So... Let's take a gander at some examples of the most commonly sought after answers to life's most pressing questions...
For the sake of not consuming too much web-turf here is a link to some other examples of the mindless shit Google suggests peepal is searching for...
c'mon, when you give some art-student a giant 'beaver' and say "paint it", this is what ya get. local prudes were left speechless in bemidji, minnesota when they figured out that a georgia o'keefe knock-off struck, and painted a giant beaver, on a beaver.
the town council removed the piece from the town, and people across the country are asking: "when is someone going to paint a giant dick on a one-eyed snake?" link
"Now here's something you wouldn't expect. Coca-Cola is being sued by a non-profit public interest group, on the grounds that the company's vitaminwater products make unwarranted health claims. No surprise there. But how do you think the company is defending itself?
In a staggering feat of twisted logic, lawyers for Coca-Cola are defending the lawsuit by asserting that "no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage."
Does this mean that you'd have to be an unreasonable person to think that a product named "vitaminwater," a product that has been heavily and aggressively marketed as a healthy beverage, actually had health benefits?
Or does it mean that it's okay for a corporation to lie about its products, as long as they can then turn around and claim that no one actually believes their lies?
In fact, the product is basically sugar-water, to which about a penny's worth of synthetic vitamins have been added. And the amount of sugar is not trivial. A bottle of vitaminwater contains 33 grams of sugar, making it more akin to a soft drink than to a healthy beverage."
Jeeez... Jermaine O'Neal and Shaq. Granted they will propobly output well for the money we paid for them, particularly with a hurt Perkins but I don't like either of them. Plus I'm pretty sure Perk isn't a huge fan of Shaq. Here's some of Shaq at his finest, this washed up geezer is dumbbb... but hey for Vet minimum you can't complain.
famous conspiracy theorist/total nut-bag alex jones rants about the government destroying our brains with vaccines and crummy, drug filled water. i like in the beginning when he references his own website and affiliated websites as sources. though i do agree that the gov't could possibly be fluoridating our water, a la dr. strangelove, AJ always puts that special AJ spin on everything; making it sound completely insane.
"A Michigan man credited his dog with saving his life by chewing off his diseased big toe as he lay passed out in a drunken stupor.
Jerry Douthett, 48, woke up on a Saturday night in late July in his Rockford, Michigan home to find his Jack Russell Terrier, Kiko, had gnawed off his right big toe.
"The dog always lays with me on the bed," said Douthett. "That night, I woke up and looked down at my foot, and it was wet. When I looked it was blood, and there was the dog looking at me with a blood mustache."
Douthett's wife, Rosee, rushed him to a hospital where doctors found he was suffering from Type 2 diabetes. His toe was badly infected and surgeons amputated the remainder of the digit.
Douthett's wife, a registered nurse, had been urging him for weeks to have his infected toe examined by a doctor.
On the night Kiko ate his toe, Douthett said he had been out with his wife and drank about "six or seven beers" and a pair of giant margaritas "big enough to put goldfish in."
