Banner Image Via ME Motherfuckers!
Good evening everyone. That beautiful goddamn banner photo was taken by your humble narrator personally last November 30th for the very last concert EVER! from Slayer. Brother DJ Taj and I are both thrash metal maniacs and for me this was the 4th time I’ve seen them live. Swear to God when I bought the tickets I had no idea it was their last show ever. I just saw they were playing with Ministry and Primus and I said. “Fuck yes.” Then it turned out to be the last time they will ever perform.
The photo is the outside of the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, CA, right next to where the Rams/Chargers new home is being built. This is the only time I know of when they paid such a massive tribute to the band that was playing that night.
It was fucking bad ass!
Tonight ends our annual “DFO Hate Week” and it is my honor this year to close it out.
For a slightly different spin on the overall hate theme I’m going to tell you how I personally stopped an overflowing fountain of hate that was building up inside.
For the past several years I had noticed the unpleasant sensation of a pretty constant flow of anger whenever I went out in public, especially when driving. Don’t even ask about driving on the freeway. The littlest thing could just set me off. I don’t express myself physically or with gestures so it wasn’t technically “road rage” but it still caused me to boil internally.
It had gotten to the point that I was going to consult my doctor. Maybe a medication was fucking with me causing a chemical balance?
I was getting kind of weirded out by it.
I mean, there is a good chance that about 91% of the planet would trade for my life. I live on the fucking beach in LA! I walk there almost daily. My current hometown is one of the coolest, unknown, out of the way cities anywhere. I have a fantastic job that pays me really well in an industry I’ve always wanted to work in and I love going to work!
What the fuck was wrong with me?
Then I noticed about 5 months ago…It had basically stopped.
Well not entirely because a shithead doing shithead things can make anybody angry, but it was gone as far as day-to-day activities went.
I’m good now.
Any guess what may have changed in just those 5 months?
I logged off of Facebook. For good.
That’s the only change.
I had no idea that just reading that fucking site daily could fester inside of you and actually manifest itself in a physical way. It’s not just the ads, although that was the original reason for quitting, when all of the same idiotic bullshit false ads for our current Shitbag-in-Chief started running again. It was realizing that friends and family you’ve known and loved your entire life are not only entirely the polar opposite of you belief-wise and political-wise but something about being on the goddamn site encourages them to express and bray out their idiotic opinions on a daily basis.
That site made me utterly disown completely people I was previously very close to.
I only used Facebook to post food photos to get a rough idea of what I would post for a Sunday Gravy banner photo, keep up with the family or I would post photos like that bad motherfucker up top of activities I was doing. Never to vent and rail and share my brain-dead ideologies with folks who really didn’t want to hear it and sure as fuck never asked for it.
In honor of DFO Hate Week I can stringently say…
Give it a try if you are feeling angry for unknown reasons. Step away for a bit and find out if it will help you as much as it did me. Simply freeing myself from that goddamn personality disorder of a social media site.
Sports tonight to relieve or increase your anger:
There’s your full schedule NBA.
Got your full schedule for the NHL.
Got that goddamn Honors thing for the NFL.
And miscellaneous and sundry college sports.
Superb Owl tomorrow.
Tonight just hang out with us. Drink a few things. Self medicate. Relax! And for FUCKS SAKE CHILL THE FUCK OUT!
Vent down there in the comments.
A brand new season of Sunday Gravy next Sunday.
Be well everyone.
