Tragically Unhip

My good friend "lesser 'stos" came over the other night. We were thumbing through the Heath Ledger copy of Rolling Stone and as we went through it we both had a sad understanding. I am falling out of hip music. I feel like I used to be so cool, and know this and that about every band that was worth its salt. Now as I am going through it there is this big thing about the arctic monkeys. Who? The arctic monkeys. Ugh. I don't know what thew even sound like. If I had to guess by their looks probably like Blur+Arcade Fire+Bloc Party, but I don't really know. And to be honest I don't even care. I know they are not Built to Spill (and thier next record is going to be rad by the way) Let's just hope these guys are the next milkshake song. "my Acrtic monkey brings all the girls to the yard, I could teach you but I'd have to charge..."

I am still cooler than you though!

The Brick Testament

Bible stories were meant to be told through lego illustrations. I don't think Jesus knew it but I know he would be proud of them. This is a shot from the story of Samson getting a prostitute. Please read more at

Those Lego Corp Bastards have been getting rich of kids and sins for way too long, at least someone is using legos for good.

By the way this site is rad-i-cool.


Well I used to love professional basketball but have lost some of that. Now with the NCAA championship I am really stoked, not as much as the monkey in the picture but close to that level. I only have 10 bucks riding on the entire tourney, but it isn't about the promise of riches. NCAA basketball understands the beauty of the single elimination style tournament. NBA championships take FOREVER, and it gets boring. Single elimination is rad. Gotta be hungry.

Science is good

I am inspired by the folks at If you have not yet seen these cool kids from sac please look at their website. They should all be my friends. I do not know if it is a "Sacramento" thing, but they are so funny.

In my lame attempt to be science-ey and be accepted by a bunch of folks I do not know. I have decided to rip off their "how much is inside idea." As much as I would enjoy the "how many vomits are inside a case of jagermeister when split between me and five of my friends?"

But I will answer the age old question "How many molecules of sugar are in a 1 liter bottle of coca cola?" Because there are so many times that I have sat around asking myself about my sugar intake when pounding a mexican coke from the Zona.

So here are the goods:

In every Liter of Coke there are 124 grams of sugar. We all know(from high school chemistry) that there are 6.02 x 10^23 molecules in a mol of any substace. The molecular weight of sugar is 342.3 grams. That means that in every singe liter of coke ther are about 20,600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 molecules of sugar.

Yeah I think I need to count the average seeds in a pickle or something. Maybe if I came up with the seeds to length ratio... Am I too science? Love me? Please...


Walk the line was a damn good movie.

It's Hard Out Here for a P-I-M-P!

I don't know how many of my reader(s) watched the awards on Sunday night but I just got back from hanging out with the three six mafia. That was a wild 54 hour celebration. Those guys can DRINK! Now I have to work after this bender and all I can think about is fried chicken, waffles and bed. I had to give them a real hard time though I was horrified by the terrible fight choreography that took place during the awards show. They were apologetic, we both agreed that the only person who could really pull that off is:

Also I am not sure if dig the message that the academy is sending with this award.

Put precious metals in your teeth+ act tough + get women to turn tricks for you to pay the rent= reward

Be a sensitive gay cowboy or Will Ferrell the greatest actor of all time=snubbed

Yup... Its Official I am a Dirty Old Man!

LOLing on the BRB's photograph got me to thinking "you know Linday Lohan really is pretty cute. I mean she has great boobs if nothing else."

Then I thought back to the Parent Trap, and I remember that I was in high school with that remake came out. And she was pretty young, but you know Hollywood they're always making people look older or younger than they really are:

I am not that much of a pervert. I wanted to see how old she is.

Yeah she is 20 and I am an asspoopbutt.

Want some Ice Cream Lindsay, I got a whole bunch of Ben and Jerry's in the basement. No, how 'bout some otterpops.

Totes asspoopbutt...

Salmon Seaon in Danger

The West coast salmon season is in danger of being cancelled. In 2001 and 2002 the Bush administration fucked up the Klamath river to gain favor with farmers. They diverted a lot of water from the river to crops. The lack of water caused the waterway to heat up and kill juvenile and returning fish for the spawn. Now due to poor numbers returning to the Klamath river Fish and Game is considering putting the kaibosh on the whole season. While the Sacramento and American rivers are expecting modern record returns of fish for the spawn. The number of naturally spawning fish required on the Sacramento and American Rivers to meet sustainabilty goals is in the low 6 figures. Officials are expecting over 680,000 fish to return for spawning. With record rains this year spawning grounds should also be fertile and clean.

As a matter of scale the Klamath river needs 32,000 to sustain populations and without a fishing season they expect 27,000 fish. An unrestriced fishing season would bring returning salmon down to 18,500 fish. So 18,000 fish are going to ruin the lives of countless commercial fishermen in 3 states. This doesn't seem right. I am all for conservation. BUT I think there is a reasonable way to restrict the season based on population movements that could protect Klamath salmon and allow for some sort of season. Rolling closures starting in May at the north and south end of the Klamath salmon range, and then close it closer and closer to the Klamath as the spawn approaches. I mean you know where these fish wind up (obviously) you know how fast they can swim. This is math people.

This isn't the only beef I have with the way F+G manages fishing seasons. They are really asspoopbutt.


Asspoopbutt is the new word. It can be any part of speech noun, verb or adjective. Go forth and asspoopbutt!

Sorry about the length between blogposts I have been working on an epic post and have not had much free time. When complete it will be glorious. I promise.
