Last night there was a Godsmack concert at the Memorial Auditorium and boy did it KICK ASS. Ill Nino opened first. For those of you with shitty musical taste that never venture away from what you hear on the radio you may have heard them on the Resident Evil or Freddy vs. Jason soundtracks. Probably not. Anyway they are a fucking sweet metal group that can really tear it up, and that's exactly what they did. The doors opened at 7:30, they were probably on stage around 8 for about 20 to 30 minutes. That's all it took for my neck to already be sore. In between I ran down to fuel myself with a little more overly priced alcohol, then got set to watch the next band, Adema. Adema's singer is the half brother of Jonathan Davis from Korn. They were pretty good. Their set actually started kinda weak compared to Ill Nino, but then they tore it up with some of their more kick ass songs. A few more beers and it was time for Godsmack. Pussies packed the bleacher seating above while the crazy ass motherfucks of Vermont packed the floor. When the lights went out, shit loads of people started lighting up joints and shit. Then a few seconds later, Godsmack cut into their first song and the entire floor became a giant mosh pit. I lost everyone except Duce and Randi in the madness. It was bad as fuck. 3 songs in and I was dripping with sweat from head banging and moshing so much. It was hot as hell but we kept going. The show was fucking great and even included a cover of that old shitty song "Cat Scratch Fever" which they made a lot better. Near the end they wanted everyone on their feet even the wimps in the seats above so they took a bit getting everyone on their feet. One bad ass decided he was gonna sit anyways so the singer was like, "Hey pal, if you're too old to stand up you should fucking get out right now, you can go eat your fried dough and Budweiser after the show but I wanna see your ass stand up right now!" Man it was ownsauce. Afterwards a guy came up to Duce, Randi and I and asked if we wanted to meet Adema. We got some back stage passes and waited for a bit, but eventually they told us the band decided to leave. Probably due to the fact that Vermont sucks and is full of shitty rednecks, they most likely assumed there was no one worth meeting here. They wouldn't really be that wrong. Even so the night was insane!
Current Mood: Sore but still pumped!

|Dr. Phil is goofy looking.
I don't know who this guy is, but he's goofy looking as hell. They need to stop putting him in pop up adds everywhere. He's giving me the creeps.
I mean, look at him. Current Mood: Worn out.Current Music: 50 Cent - High All The Time

OH MY GOD!
Franco turned 21 last Sunday. Due to technical difficulties, we could not celebrate this joyous occasion until last night. But believe me, it was worth the wait. Here are some highlights from the party for those of you that missed it:
- Jon being WASTED. And I mean FUCKING WASTED.
- Franco being trashed, but able to get up at 10 and take a shower and go to work.
- Bogdan puking, but still able to give the thumbs up when everyone told him he rocked.
- 16 Cases of Beer + 15 Bottles of Hard Liquor + Jello Shots
- Probably over 50 people at the Salese house.
- Craps on the living room floor
- Beruit on the deck, which had to be moved into the garage.
- Sending the table over the deck to people below to put in the garage.
- The Police coming 3 times, and on the third time, Frankie dealing with them. (They didn't come back after that...)
- 2 Strippers in the downstairs living room.
- Franco's step mom funneling beer.
- Ben drinking Jagermeister and Jack Daniels like it was water.
As if this all didn't rock enough, I woke up around 12:30 today and was treated to an excellent breakfast and watched Zoolander. I am happy now.
Current Mood: Hungover as shit.

September 29, 2003...
Finally after what seems like FOREVER to me, Limp Bizkit will be releasing a new album. After Wes left the band, it took them quite a while to find a replacement, and even longer to get making some new shit. So far the songs you can listen to on the site are:
-Eat You Alive
-Red Light Green Light (w Snoop Dogg)
-Behind Blue Eyes
Eat You Alive is a hard song. I like it a lot. Speaks volumes about stuck up girls... Red Light Green Light is a hip hop song with Snoop Dogg. Good flow, good lyrics, sounds really good! Behind Blue Eyes is a slower song with Fred whining about something. I haven't listened to it yet because the other two tracks are too bad ass. I think Crack Addict will be on this album too, which I've only really heard from Wrestlemania XIX. Man I'm pumped. Do yourself a favor though, if you see me and want to rip on me for liking Limp Bizkit, keep it to yourself. Otherwise you may find your jaw not working properly.
Current Mood: KICK YOU IN THE FACE PUMPED

You should listen to BT.
One of my favorite musicians is a guy that goes by the name "BT." I first heard Brian Transeau's work from the Soundtrack to Gone In 60 Seconds. He also did the film score to The Fast And The Furious and did music for other movies as well. His music is a mix of techno trance dance and pretty much anything. Some of his songs have hip-hop artists laying down the lyrics, which make a kick ass combo of Electronic music with really tight lyrics. Others are kind of mellow remixes of songs by people like Madonna and Tori Amos and even Seal. Most people probably wouldn't think I would be into this kind of music, but I really love it! I was amazed when I was playing his most recent album "Emotional Technology" in my car last night riding around with Franco and Bogdan, and Boggy was like, "Hey can I get a copy of this cd?" I think it was the first time anyone has ever admitted liking some kind of music I liked! I think everyone should do themselves a favor and listen to BT. Here are a few tracks to download to get a feel for a few of this guys styles:
-Nocturnal Transmission (In the Fast and the Furious at Race Wars)
-Blue Skies (Featuring Tori Amos)
-Love, Peace and Grease
-Madskillz (Mic Chekka)
-Never Gonna Come Back Down (There are a shit load of remixes of this song)
-Movement in Still Life
-Love on Haight Street
-Sunblind (Featuring Jan Johnston)
-Dreaming (The Libra Mix is a kick ass new remix)
-Knowledge of Self
Now that I look at it, there are actually a lot of songs on this list, but these are probably my favorite ones looking at the back of the albums right now. Like I mentioned before, some are hip-hop songs, with other people doing lyrics while BT cuts it up with the background music, and others are remixes and just straight trance tracks. I think anyone with a liking for any kind of music can find at least one song by BT they like, because his range of styles is just so broad...
Current Mood: Very happy. (Weird Huh?)

I debated whether or not I wanted to post about this. I mean, if the person who did it reads this, in a way they win because they know how much it bothers me, but anyway, for those of you that don't know, my car was keyed AGAIN a little over a week ago. What the fuck!? Why are people always so fucking cowardly? Even if they have a right to be mad at me for something, which they probably do, why slink around in the shadows and key my car? Did you ever think to come talk to me face to face? Guess not, because that would require a backbone. God people are such little bitches they piss me off. I've said it time and time again, people may think I'm an asshole, but it's only because I don't fear saying whatever I have to say to their face. I guess that's why people can't ever settle anything. Talking is not an option, so they just sit around mumbling to themselves dwelling on shit until they do something stupid like this. I could be wrong, it may have just been some totally random drunken asshole, jealous that he takes the bus to work while I drive a Mustang. I guess it just boils down to the fact that people have no respect for anything these days. Authority, laws, others, nothing. Like 3 weeks ago when we got out of work at 3am to find the Police taking some dumbass away. Apparently he was trying to impress the people he was with, so he decided to walk over the top of a Honda Prelude belonging to a Bouncer next door at Rasputin's. The moron ended up walking up over the back, over the roof, then falling on his ass through the front window. The Police had to use gloves when taking him away because there was blood everywhere from him slashing himself all up. Too bad he didn't fall and break his neck after falling through the window, that would have served him right. I hope whoever messed up my car's family all die in a fiery painful death. But the asshole that did it lives on, crippled from the neck down. That might make me feel better. Okay I should probably sleep now I'm getting pissed off thinking about this.
Current Mood: Pissed off.

Here's a thought people. Wait to have sex/drink alcohol/do drugs until AFTER your food has arrived. Or at least do it in moderation until I show up in the next 20 to 30 minutes. Yesterday was a good day for me for delivery, but probably an embarassing and costly one for others. For example, my second delivery, I get to the house, probably about 15 minutes after the people called. It was really slow, and Kwan's is super fast at making the food and getting it to your place. When I get there these morons are fucking half naked all over each other. I don't give a shit so I knock anyway. They look like a couple of deer in headlights, the girl who's not wearing any pants gets up and darts into the other room. The shirtless dirtbag guy comes out and is like, "Holy shit man we just barely ordered." Yeah, you did. Then they sent me to deliver your fucking food. So have the decency to be waiting with your wallet ready, not having sex with your girlfriend. Another lady was piss drunk when I got to her house. Her order was $22.00 and she gave me $40.00. Then she asked for $8.00 back. Looking back on the situation, I probably should have just been like, "Here's your $8.00 you dumbass" then left. But I guess I was raised a little too honest so I said, "You realize if I only give you $8.00 back you'll be giving me like a $10.00 tip?" This caused major confusion on her behalf, and took me like another 10 minutes to try to get her to figure out how much she wanted to tip me so I could give her the correct change back. Then there's just about every other delivery I ever have. Stoned college students. Don't get me wrong, I love the shit out of these guys. They smoke up everday, then call their savior, Mr. Kwan! But jesus, take it easy! Some of these guys smoke so much they turn into retards. Like the guy that called and placed an order. Then 5 minutes later called and placed the same order again, plus a soda. I get there with two bags of food and he's like, "Yo man I only ordered that one." Actually, you ordered them both, but I guess you don't remember. Marijuana affects the memory kid.
Current Mood: Tired yet content.

Freddy vs. Jason
Freddy vs. Jason is fucking BAD ASS. When I saw it I thought to myself, "Wow, they use the F word a lot!" It's been a fucking while since I've seen a movie not engineered to let 12 year olds in. Nudity, swearing, and blood blood blood. They need to make more movies like this. It was like seeing all the old Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies again. They didn't have to cut the movie all to hell so kids could go see it, they just put whatever the fuck they wanted in it! In addition, the Soundtrack to the movie is like a power packed kick in the face! Ill Nino, Mushroomhead, Sevendust, Hatebreed, Powerman 5000, Slipknot... the list goes on and on. 20 tracks of pure fucking rock. If you don't like that kind of music, then you won't like the soundtrack because you suck. If you didn't like the movie, you probably really suck too.
Current Mood: PUMPED
