Magnesium Honey

Abnormally normal
they're strangley divine
laid out before me
they tug at my mind

They draw me towards them
as they paint me a dream
and for ages I'll follow
this unnatural stream

In waves now they crash
on the shores of my trance
cyan, amber, thick silver
in the black now they dance

I've known them before
in a place long forgotten
here they've come back to life
on this Boulevard Rotten

How sweetly they sway
my lackluster sick season
as my serenity grows
from asphyxiant reason

As they lead me away
white blindness burns bright
while I travel unruly
'long my syrupy lights

Mitch All Together

There was a really cool Mitch Hedberg tribute last night at the Orpheum downtown. A lot of really good comedians including Dave Attell, Patton Oswalt, Nick Swardson, Doug Benson and Mike Birbiglia performed. For the few out there who haven't heard Mitch's stadup, go check out his last album, Mitch All Together.

Included with the album is a DVD with his Comedy Central special.

"I think Pringles initial intention was to make tennis balls. But on the day that the rubber was supposed to show up, a big truckload of potatoes arrived. But Pringles is a laid back company. They said "Fuck it. Cut em up.""-Mitch Hedberg

"Young comedians are always trying to ape someone else. Even when they're good you can always tell where their influence was. "This guy is doing Seinfeld with a twist" or "That guy is doing Sam Kinison toned down a notch." And then you see someone like Mitch, and it's like his brain was put in backwards."-Conan O'Brien

Webcomics and Whatnot

I am a huge webcomics geek and want to get this outta my system. Most blogs have a links section or something labeled "if your bored and looking for something to do..." blah blah blah. Take note, these aren't things for you when you're bored, this are comics that, if you have the same sense of humor as I do, I really think you should be reading. Very funny stuff and many different styles of humor. At least check them out, chances are you'll find something you like.

Rob and Elliot(
-A relatively new comic on the scene, done by Clay and Hampton Yount. A much more standard style of comedy. Jokes and pop culture references reminiscent of Family Guy/The Simpsons. Hardly ever has their been a continuous plotline, and it is updated less than most of the other comics here. If you aren't a big comic reader yet, this is one you might wanna check out. (The two also write weekend filler comics for Sluggy Freelance.)

-Not a comic, but a flashtoon. And yes, I know most flashtoons suck, but this one is top notch, trust me. Centers around the absurd adventures of a tree, a dumb blonde kid, a fat green kid, and all of the stupid people they befriend/kill along the way.

Sluggy Freelance(
-An older comic(Originated in 1998 I believe) about the misadventures of freelance bums Torg and Riff, their roommate Zoe, her bewitched friend Gwynn, and Torg's murderous pet rabbit, Bun-Bun. Has become more of an adventure comic filled with jokes over the past few years. If you want something with a little more substance, Sluggy is the comic for you.

Penny Arcade(
-I know that I probably don't need to tell anyone about this. It's the biggest webcomic out there by a long shot. Violent, vulgar, and absurd, it's got it all. Very funny. If you're a geek and you don't read this, go do so. NOW.

VGCats( -Gaming comic very similar to Penny Arcade, only toned down a bit. The best choice for anyone out there who is into video games but isn't a full fledged geek.

Nothing Nice To Say(
-The worlds first online punk comic. Up the Punx. (Whatever the hell that means)

Joe and Monkey(
-A guy named Joe who owns a talking monkey and fights a klepto robot. If you have'nt already clicked on the link, what the hell's wrong with you?

Since When Does The Muslim World Care About Bush?

Apparently, President Bush has called for an end to violence in the Muslim world that was triggered by cartoons of the prophet Mohammed. I wasn't aware that Muslim extremists were under his jurisdiction. The man is waging a war on Muslim extremists, and he's one of the most hated figures in the Arab world right now. I wonder if he really believes that he can make a difference here or if he's just looking for another photo op with a middle eastern figurehead? Wait, nevermind, I just answered my own question.

Now That All That's Over...

Spaced out and forgot about this blog until a friend linked me to his the other day. Besides, that first post took a lot out of me and I felt a 7 month break was in order. Anyways, I suppose I outta give a mission statement/explanation for this thing. I started this last summer at a time when I was really confused about the universe and the way things are, and in the time since my perceptions haven't cleared up at all. Chalk it up to me avoiding any and all philosophy in order to clear my head. In any case, I'd like to get this thing going again and maybe get some answers to my questions, or if all else, open you up to some questions that you'd like answered yourself.

I don't intend this to be 100% deep thinking and meaningful questions, just an outlet for my deranged ramblings and a place to post anything that I think is funny and or interesting. I had a teacher once tell me that my mind was a long string of nonsense broken up every now and then by a flash of brilliance. I'm not quite sure what will come of this thing, but I'd expect something like that.

Sorry for the delay,
