music news

according to pitchfork, minor threat demos, dvd, tribute album all planned for release. wow!

if you scroll down more...jay farrar is putting out a new album. how unexciting! he hasn't put out anything good recently. blah!



stomaching the 2004 election

yesterday i had an endoscopy. it went smoothly.
exept my doctor was late. he went to the wrong hospital. ?#?@?
so i passed the time talking to the older nurse about savannah ga., dogs, and traveling.
then another dude (an anesthesiologist named tony) came in and talked about fish and plants.
weird, but a funny occurrence.
after the whole ordeal i felt o.k., then like crap, now i'm back to o.k. on the mends.
the results come back in a week.

kristy is running in the national race for the cure on june 7th. hook lady fingaz up here!

my co-worker told me about the presidential candidate from ohio, dennis kucinich. does anybody know who he is? all i've heard is he's vegan, democrat, and not g.w.? sounds good so far.

i guess i'm hoping that somewhere, somehow there is a legitimate non-republican candidate out there. lieberman and gephardt...please. i just don't see it happening. this is giving me a stomach ache. damn.

back to the hospital

my doctor called me. well, actually his secretary called me. since i haven't been feeling well, they are going to do some "exploratory" procedures to find the exact problem. i'm just hoping they find a way to fix me up. i need a tune-up. damn.

so i'll be at the hospital tomorrow morning. back home by lunch. we'll see how it goes.
i'll let you know.

more pain, no gain

so i went to the doctor and he gave me an inhaler. i've been having problems still. damn condition. he said the inhaler might alleviate pressure in my chest. then later that evening i felt more nauseous than ever. so after tracking down the doctor, he said that i might have an ulcer.
great.

i have to set up an appointment for next week to figure it all out. i'm old and broken.

old man walking

i've been meaning to post this for a couple of days. this past weekend i celebrated my birthday. good old 27. yippers. on saturday i went to little viet garden for some good rice vermicilli & tofu. after dinner, i went bowling with a group of co-workers and college friends. i think everyone had a good time. i know i did. i bowled somewhere around 140. not too bad for these old bones. to all those in attendance in person or spirt...thank you.

on sunday i went to luigi's in d.c. with the fam...the "extended" fam. when you go out to an italian restaurant, you gotta bring a crew. more fun for all. then later that sunday i went to see x-men 2. it was pretty damn good. although the lady with kid next to me "brought her own soundtrack". her 3 yr old was a little rambunctious at 7:30 p.m. here are some lessons for good parenting:
1) don't bring a 3 yr old to a PG-13 movie
2) don't bring a 3 yr old to an evening movie
3) don't curse in front of your 3 yr old. [my friend stephanie told them to be quiet and the mother got all huffy and puffy. upon leaving she said "wait until you have kids you stupid bitch."] nice parenting. i just don't think it's a good idea to ever curse in front of a kid. don't be stupid people.

on tuesday i finally picked up my marlin. got to ride it like crazy that evening. sooooo nice.

concert a go-go

last night i saw floetry w/blackalicious & little brother. sold out show. blackalicious were a lot of fun. floetry was a little too sloetry for me. but they have really good voices. good show nonetheless.
