An observation

While I've been up at this jobsite, in a town populated by professional hipsters, I've noticed something. It's not the poor, lower class kids, who'd ostensibly benefit from socialist policies, who make a habit of wearing Che shirts and the like. It's the stupid hipsters with full bank accounts, who've never worried about making ends meet.

I found it telling and terrifying.



Okay, I gotta get this out or I'm gonna explode, and since screaming at stupid people will get me nowhere but into trouble, y'all get the honors.

You can obviously see the caution tape and orange pylons. You've apparently survived to adulthood, so it would seem the breathing lessons took and you can learn simple tricks. So try this one. DO NOT CROSS MY FUCKING BARRICADES!

I don't put up the tape because it looks pretty, or for my health. I don't do it for fun. (Profit, yes. Fun, no.)  I do it because there's a guy working 40' above me, and if he drops something, you might get hurt. Now, that wouldn't make me cry overmuch, but.the inevitable lawsuits involve a whole mess of paperwork, and wouldn't we all prefer to avoid that nonsense?

This has been your one friendly warning.

Keepin on

This week, I'm reaching DEEP into the vault, and coming out with some very classic Aerosmith.

If that doesn't make you want to fly down the freeway, you might need your pulse checked.

On Stage is BACK!

I finally fixed my bass, and started working on my old car, so I've had a bit of inspiration.  On Stage Thursday is scheduled for at least the next three weeks with what sometimes gets termed "right foot music."  They're all tunes that inspire my right foot to find the firewall, basically.

For starters, you get Storm Large covering Pinball Wizard.  I apologize for the extended intro, but it's the only video I could find with any kind of actual quality to it.

An open letter

To the self-important, overblown Park City bimbo.

No.  You cannot "just go under" my damn barricades.  I can tell from the look on your face that I ruined your day, by making you walk an extra 20 feet to get "over there."  ("Over there" being the suck-nuts, uber-trendy hair salon.)

I know you think you're special, and that Mommy and Daddy made sure you knew that.  But seriously, what part of "CAUTION: CONSTRUCTION AREA!  DO NOT ENTER!"  do you think doesn't apply to you?

I hate folks who are stuck on stupid.

A much needed PSA

...and knowing is half the battle.

Theme song for today

It's Saturday, it's 76 degrees and sunny as a body could want outside, and my life doesn't suck.  I have a beautiful wife, enough money in my pocket to keep the bills paid, and family and friends that love me.  I'll let Uncle Kracker sum it up for you.

The man tells it how it is.

A favor for Larry

Larry Correia's next book, Monster Hunter Alpha, drops on July 26th, and he (and the rest of us) would like to see it hit the NYT Bestseller list like the other Monster Hunter books have.

So he's asking a favor.

I don't know how much help and traffic I can possibly send his way, but he's a hell of a nice guy, so I'll do what I can.  If it means anything, I also give him the strongest recommendation a capitalist can.  I'm buying his book.  3 copies, in fact (one each for Bex and I to have signed, and an .epub copy for the Nooks).

So help out one of the nicest guys to ever lay ink to paper.
