I can't watch videos of people doing that. If someone smashed up an instrument at a concert I was attending live I would walk out. It causes me physical pain.

I hate it when artists smash their instruments. Seems ungrateful to the instrument and to the person who made it.

This is why watching people smash their instruments makes me angry. Also I know they're inanimate objects but I always feel like instruments have personalities, so watching people smash their instruments is like watching someone beat the shit out of their best friend for no reason.

I have never loved you more than I do right now, guys. For real. If anybody ever hurts my hollowbody I would die of a broken heart. I love her more than any girlfriend I've ever had.

No, for sure. I hate smashing instruments. And I pieced together that Jazzmaster, so I want no harm to come of it.

But. I wanted to do a Paul Simonen thing, since London Calling is my favorite record of all time:

Next week I'm going to get someone with steadier hands to take the picture but here is me in my SCA kit. The next upgrade is that I'm going to be making a new helmet. Then I'm redoing the arms and legs to be velvet covered instead of leather.

So I was in San Diego this week and was out to dinner when my kid starts texting me that the Aristocrats were playing that night in town. Since the bass player, Bryan Beller, is an old friend, she really thought I should go. Then his wife Kira started texting me asking me to come down. So I did and surprised the hell out of him when he got off stage. Neither of us had any idea the other was in town that day.

Left to right, Kira Small (AMAZING voice, check her stuff out), me, and Bryan Bellar of Aristocrats/Dethklok/Steve Vai and numerous other musical ventures.

Whew, good. Some drunk Sharks fan got into a fight with some Preds fans in the stands during the 3rd period. Was rather funny, as the guy tried to throw a haymaker and fell down a flight of stairs.

I was hoping that your avatar was in fact a true representation of you. Or at least of how you were dressed. However, cat ears attached to an actual cat are the best kind.

The full-circleness has just struck me..

I've had this corpse-painted avatar for over six years, if not more. Now I am actually in an honestly non-ironic dead-serious Black Metal band, while me donning the "Demon Warpaint" waaaay back then was purely ironic.

Go figure.

I've been rather bored today. So I decided to attempt to put up shelves in my bathroom. Here's a look at most of what I wanted to fit on the shelves.


It is possible that I have a bath stuff obsession.

And here is the end result.


Guys. I put up two whole shelves. They are holding weight. No one was injured! I am proud of myself. Also it might be a little sad that I'm proud of myself for this but I am clumsy as fuck and the last time I tried to hang something on the wall I ended up leaving 6 holes that definitely did not need to be there, and I had a panic attack and hurt my arm. So! This turned out better.
