Stay High

14 02 2016

mc5I wrote “stay high” in one of my stoner girlfriends’ yearbooks in my Jr. year of high school. And she left her yearbook behind in class one day and the teacher opened it and started reading the comments.  So dude called my parents and said we needed to do a drug intervention with me, just because I told her to stay high.

I didn’t do drugs like those chicks.  They were way more mature and older than me.  I started school a year earlier than I should have so I was always with older kids in the same class and I witnessed things earlier than I should have.

They would come to school on Monday, after the weekend talking about taking LSD and Cocaine and having sex with their older boyfriends.  I just listened and let it roll off my back because I knew I was way too young for that business.  But they liked me a lot so they would travail me with these stories of slutty-hood and debauchery.

So I knew they liked to party and they were my friends in school so I wrote, “stay high” in her yearbook and the adults all freaked out on me.  And her too, but she laughed it off because her parents allowed her these luxuries.

But not mine, and not that I would have wanted to do that stuff at such a young age, I wouldn’t have.  They would tell me that I needed to take LSD with them and then they would “take advantage” of me in the bedroom.

Sounds about what every high school boy dreams of, it actually happened to me but I just put it out of my mind because I knew I was going on a mission for Jesus Christ when I was 19 and I had to remain pure as I could.  But I smoked a lot of weed, and drank alcohol and made out with a lot of chicks…I just never went all the way like those crazy chicas wanted me too.

And after the discovery of “stay high” in the yearbook, I was grounded for two months by my parents.  Man, that sucked.  I got grounded a lot, and for long times too because I did some stuff I should not have done, but it was never as severe as my parents imagined, and during lecture time I never said anything, just listened to them tell me what kind of trouble I was getting into for coming home smelling like smoke.

Man, I must have driven my parents nuts in my latter high school years.  They have no idea I was merely the celibate stoner.  I just liked my brain escape from the harshness of home, but I wasn’t out womanizing or anything like my other buddies were.

Cops Shooting Elderly People With Canes Because They Got Out Of Their Car — America Is Under Siege!

14 03 2014

Hey all you people who want to call me an asshole for saying this cop was wrong.  He was wrong 100% and it’s all HIS fault.  If you don’t like that truth you can eat me.

Having cops like this on our streets is a bigger problem than the crime we have going on in the inner cities of America. I don’t give a shit that the cop felt bad and the he cried. For goodness sake, that old dude is tough as nails and got up and said he was OK, that’s what happened sure. Big deal. And now we’re all running to the defense of the cop. This mother f***er should be suspended indefinitely and sent back to school.

The police in the country are out of control. If you don’t understand that to be the truth then you sit in your comfort zones listening to the media filling you full of your pablum and need to understand what is happening in the streets and with the rampant out of control dominion of authority given to young dipshits with a badge, a gun and a muscle car with a computer and Internet access.

These cops today are angry children with attitudes, policing a grown up world and need to back the fuck down and let the citizens tell THEM how shit works.  And if they don’t there’s going to be civil war.

America is going to the pussified wastoids of the nation and it’s being supported by spineless pacifists who are too afraid to offend someone who is so stupid they shot an old man with a cane because he got out of his car to see why he was being pulled over.

Our cops are terrorists and they are ruling our streets and putting fear into good people and it’s people like me who are sick of it all and who are done taking their shit.  The system is broken and it begins with the corruption of authority, goes into the jails, the court systems, the glad-handing in the back rooms with the public attorneys, corrupt judicial officials and local legislative politicians in it for power and status and they all need to be brought up on charges for the chaos they are creating in the nations communities.





Daniel Johnston

29 03 2011

DanDaniel Johnston is one of my favorite artists.  If you’re unfamiliar with his work, to see one of his drawings or listen to one of his recordings you likely wouldn’t be terribly impressed.  But after hearing more of his work it becomes apparent that Daniel Johnston is an inspired visionary.  He is not the best performer in comparison to some more accomplished artists but if you have an understanding of what Daniel Johnston is about and what he lives for, his performances take on a whole new meaning.

Art and music flow from Daniel like water down the Nile.  He is unstoppable and it is as though he can’t help but create music and art.  He has many recurring themes throughout his art, mostly of battles between good and evil and the same themes run through his songs.  Much of what he sings about has to do with his affection for a never gotten love interest named Lori.   He met her in his youth and followed her with a video camera as his way of worshiping and admiring her.  He did get her to say, “I love you Danny” but that was only to satisfy him and she eventually went on to marry an undertaker who he used as the subject of many songs.

His mother would lecture him endlessly about his slothfulness and call him an unprofitable servant of the Lord (he would call himself an unserviceable prophet) as he spent all of his time drawing, writing and recording.  Daniel grew up with faith in his religion and a profound fear of hell and damnation.  He spoke often of Satan and the torment of the devil in his songs and in his conversations and lived in fear of losing his soul.  One therapist said about Daniel, after analyzing his drawings, that he is surely going to heaven because it’s obvious he has already been to hell.

Daniel finally realized one of his life long dreams by accident when MTV profiled the Austin music scene in the mid eighties.  Dan worked his way in front of the cameras, was interviewed and eventually given a spot live on MTV performing his songs.  The world was finally introduced to Daniel Johnston and his career began to bloom. But Daniel perceived the experience as a dichotomy or paradox in that MTV was serving the devil but there he was on MTV, just like he said he would as a kid.

When Dan was still pretty young he began to develop bi-polar disorder which became so severe he spent a lot of time in and out of many mental institutions.  He changed suddenly from a happy and care free young boy to a troubled and self loathing youth.

When he was in New York City spending time with the members of Sonic Youth he had a severe episode and was again sent to a mental facility.  He was accidentally released on a clerical error and found himself at CBGB that evening and opened up for the LA band fIREHOSE.

Daniel Johnston had many extreme episodes of mania where he would essentially lose touch with reality.  One time he was in his father’s private airplane, his father piloting and he turned the engine off and threw the keys out the window.  The airplane crash landed in the trees and both were uninjured.  Another time he whacked his manager over the head with a lead pipe three times.  Daniel has been quoted as saying, “I whammed him, I whammed him good“.  After these episodes he again found himself committed to mental institutions where he realized the horror of what he had done.

As Dan got older and into his forties he went back to living with his parents, taking his meds and focusing on writing and playing music.  Dan tours the world and elsewhere performing his music to the delight of devoted fans.  Sometimes his shows are sub-par and sometimes they are purely brilliant.  True fans love his performances either way.

God bless Daniel Johnston.  The poor man has been tormented all of his life and he has produced some amazing art and beautiful songs.  Over 400 artists have covered his music including Beck, fIREHOSE, Sonic Youth, Death Cab for Cutie, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Built to Spill and Pearl Jam.

Daniel’s life has been chronicled in the movie “The Devil and Daniel Johnston“.  It spans over twenty years of Daniel’s life as he had recorded most of his life on video and audio tape.  Learn more about Daniel Johnston at his fan site rejectedunknown.com

Damn these eyedrops!

22 12 2010

It is reported that Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt has glued his eye shut. You can read the report –> here

If this guy hadn’t been married to the mad Hungarian cop slapper it wouldn’t have even been reported. But I’m glad it got reported, because I get to blog about it and it made me laugh.

I remember my former sister-in-law accidentally using some sort of moisturizer or hair product one night to soak her contacts. I remember laughing about that one and thinking how many times that could have been me. But holding up a bottle of nail glue and dropping it straight into your eye; that’s gotta sting a little!

This poor guy. I can just see it. The drop hit, he blinked a time or two and then whammo! The pain, the eyelids sticking together, the involuntary tears streaming, the cursing, his fingers rubbing his eyes making it worse…the comedy of it all! I wish I had a camera rolling on the moment.

The news report concludes by telling us that Zsa Zsa has been in and out of the hospital since breaking her hip. Because really, come on, the story isn’t about Prince Fredric von Anhalt’s mishap, it’s about Zsa Zsa Gabor, whose husband glued his eye shut. That’s comedy gold!
