“Now is that any way to behave…at a rock and roll concert?” – Jim Morrisson

So this weekend, same as last year, we were fortunate enough to be my wife’s cousin’s guests at the Los Angeles Zoo’s “Beastly Ball”, a charity event that included a silent auction, a regular auction, and various “taste of” stations from restaurants in the area.  Oh, and open bars.  Ever so many open bars.  In a wonderful coincidence, among the auction materials for yours truly was a paddle with the number 666.

After hobnobbing with various celebrities (read: sitting a row behind local TV presenter Julie Chang, who has impossibly nice skin), we were lucky enough to get to see a concert that featured Slash playing with Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band.  Slash is a very good guitarist!  Before the concert, though, was the auction portion, which was nice and brief.  They auctioned off three big-ticket items (which ended up raising on the order of $50k) and then put out a call for straight donations.  The auctioneer announced the amount, and those who held up their paddles were immediately (and conveniently!) charged.  The first two amounts he said…well, they were too much.  But once they had lowered the amount enough…my wife gave me the nod.

I held up my paddle, and in my loudest, drunkest voice I yelled out “UP THE IRONS!”

Last week’s Request Line topic was “The Afterlife”.  If there is one, I hope that Chris Cornell is happier there than he was here – the man brought a lot of joy to people through his music, and I sincerely hope that he can find some himself – he’s earned it.  Hopefully it’s not like that scary Rock and Roll Heaven from the Steven King story, although I guess the musicians themselves were pretty happy.  Oh, and let’s not forget that that lecherous slug Roger Ailes is dead, too!  Have a great week, everyone!

See? This is why I don’t watch the news.
Explosion (not yet being called a terrorist attack, fwiw) with multiple confirmed casualties at a concert in the UK.

Can’t find a link, but just saw the Breaking News thing on the tee vee box.

This was the intro song FOAR this week’s HBO goodness. Fits the theme, and is badass enough I may order the CD chuh chuh:

After death, you can’t have fun.
Some say that you come back, that one reincarnates. In the event that’s a lie, hey, what if I don’t reincarnate? Huh?
After death, you can’t have fun.
I will enjoy this life even if I get seven more. In case no one knows, what if I stay in the [afterlife]?
After death, you can’t have fun.

Shit, another I forgot….

One I forgot last week. Heard it on the radio today while running errands. Kinda fits….

Something by “Not Green Day?”. Cool. I didn’t think you had it in you.

Fun fact: “I didn’t think you had it in you!” is what Olivia usually said to AAron whenever she asked him where her things were (car keys, the remote, her phone, etc)

theeWeeBabySeamus

Nice, I too was trying to craft an Aaron/Olivia, but failed to think of one.
Kudos to you, Sir.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I didn’t think you had it in you. Hee hee.

And I didn’t post one goddamn Green Day song last week (wait….did I?) and yet still I have to endure this abuse?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Here….ya jerk.

RECOMMEND ME SOME GOOD BOOKS!

I’m dick deep in The Pursuit of Power by Richard Evans. I’ve been doing a lot of shit about the lay of the land leading up to WW1 these days (last 2-3 years) and this one is a bit boring. I’ll muck through it but I’d love to have a funny/smart page turner to fall back on.

“I’m dick deep in The Pursuit of Power by Richard Evans”

I’ll go ahead and not borrow that, thanks.

You don’t rub your penis on the pages of the book you’re reading?

QUIT BULLYING ME!

/mutters “It gets better” repeatedly

scotchnaut

I made an assumption that I realize now was born of some ingrained prejudice. By all means, rub your vag on all those pages.

SonOfSpam

Thank you. Hugs.

You’ve read all the David Sedaris essays, yeah? That’s funnier than shit. I’ve only been reading depressing stuff of late, befitting mah recluse status.

* Black Wings Has My Angel, by Elliott Chaze

I’ll get back to you, but I need to read more, myself. I’m turning into a braindead idiot.

I’ve been diving into a bunch of recipe channels on The Youtube. One thing they all have in common? The word “Rustic”. Roughed chopped veggies? RUSTIC. One pot dish? “RUSTIC”. Done over an open flame? RUSTIC AS FUCK!”. Whole cloves of garlic? RUSTIC. Done in the countryside of any country outside the US? “RUSTIC”. Any comfort food whatsoever? “RUSTIC AS FUCK”. Any meal involving venison? “YOU SO RUSTIC!”.

Are they preparing these recipes in an “open floor-plan” kitchen?

And a follow up question; are they into Cross Fit?

I just finished last night’s episode of The Leftovers so woooooo boy am I extra depressed and suicidey now. HBO should market a special commemorative straight razor and blood thinner set…

I still am 3 behind. Today seems like a bad day to play catch up, tho.

As always, a great list, and much appreciation to RTD for compiling it. Eva Cassidy singing “Autumn Leaves” absolutely wrecks me.

Not sure I can listen to this while I’m at work lest everyone think I’m a weepy mess just because it’s Monday.
