Saturday Evening Post: Hate Week Concludes.

yeah right

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!

And appropriate!

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…

FUCK FACEBOOK!

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.

So there.

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.

Camille Kostek, Gronk’s girlfriend and SI model, is the girl in the bra from that photo I was asking about. She’s from Connecticut and obviously a fan of herpes and wretchedness given how the rest of the photo is a festering case of bleeding ass herpes

Not this part of Connecticut she;s not.

Amber Heard’s attacks on Johnny Depp led to him contracting MRSA three times.

In other news, congratulations to the new Tampa Bay head coach, Amber Heard.

Well fuck, I went and passed out and a support group sprung up. Thanks for down below for all y’all’s good thoughts and support, and I willl definitely be in play during tomorrow’s dealings.

TheRevanchist

I forgot to buy potatoes. This might prevent me from making potato skins. Might have to make cheese fries instead tomorrow.

Unsurprised

Cheese fries are better. Even better are cheese hash browns.

TheRevanchist

I do have tater tots, as well, because I am classy like that.

Unsurprised

Fuck yeah. Tachos!

Senor Weaselo

So did JJ Watt #RiseAndGrind with #NoDaysOff on SNL?

theeWeeBabySeamus

OK, time to go prove how stupid I am by playing this week’s Jeopardy eps on the DVR. Later Taters.

Too bad I can’t pull off that ‘fro.

Holy Shit was Jojo Rabbit good. That is fantastic black comedy, with a fantastic heart.
1917 to be seen later this week.

Covalent Blonde

It is a darling film. I find myself rather smitten by Waititi’s work

ArmedandHammered

I hope that kid can make it through his teen years because I think he is one hell of an actor. Plus Sam Rockwell was fantastic as always and I really respect Scarlett J even more. I think this vacation is going to feature us going to a lot of movies.

+1000. Itching to see Jojo again.

THIS HOTEL IN JORDAN I CALL IT HOTEL PENITENCE BECAUSE IT IS FULL OF FUCKING TRIP HAZARDS.

My dream has always been to watch a Super Bowl in Syria.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Dunno why, but that made me laugh.

Senor Weaselo

Because it would be the Syria Bowl?

THANKS A LOT TURKEY!!!!!
I hate dry Syrial.

Viva La Tabula Raza

As someone who spent some growing up time in Turkey, I am very ambivalent as to anything that advances their cause anymore. Turkish chicks with hot hairy dark bushes work for me, but a Trump Tower in Istanbul is an obscenity.

Brick Meathook

You do indeed seem to love a “thick dark bush”

Covalent Blonde

So….. Cali DFOers reunion is a no go? Weird flex but I respect it

thanks, and we will send a couple Mirage fighters to make things interesting.

Lyft driver tonight was listening to Joe Rogan. Man we are fucked as a country when that guy is considered an “intellectual” by a bunch of angry dudes.

Just added to my “Things that make me sad” list

I’ve been fucking a couple of Victoria’s Secret models all night and these curvy big-titted gals are wearing me out. I need some water. Oh shit they want more. Gotta go.

Tell ’em I said “Heyyyyyy”. They’ll know what it means.

Only if it were 5 Y’s. The sixth makes it desperate.

Random thought(s). It’s been almost 14 months since my bariatric surgery, after which I lost over 100 pounds and basically left my Type II diabetes and high blood pressure (120/62 yesterday) in the rearview.
It’s now been right at 7 weeks since my foot surgery. I was told by the surgeon that what he did with fusing bones, introducing screws and staples, is that the healing process is essentially like if I broke an arm or a leg, and I’ve got an 8-10 week healing process while the bones knit.
Since I have been sitting essentially motionless since 11 December, I am pretty sure I have re-gained some weight, but can’t be sure until I can put full weight on electronic scale.
I have been going nuts with cabin fever/stir crazy since mid-December. Next surgeon’s follow up is Friday 07 Feb, hopefully I will get some good news and be able to start putting some weight on the foot.
I’m really glad I can come here and vent and also be amused by y’all, or I’d be more mental than I am ordinarily.
Thanks.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I’m impressed with the weight loss and happy for ya with the BP and Type II. You’re a good dude.

But FWIW, I’ve mostly been sitting around motionless since December 11 as well. Of 2017. And I wasn’t even injured.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Well I thank ya for the support. I just hope that I can continue to pay attention, but I am not optimistic.

Covalent Blonde

Congrats on the DMT2 and HTN! I wish you all of the best news on the 7th! I go in for a TPLO and general de-fucking of me knee on the 5th myself so I hope only good osteo things for everyone!

Col. Duke LaCross

I feel you on this. I had my pannis removed, twenty pounds of loose skin gone, (maybe something in your future!) on January 2nd and because of a couple setbacks have been mostly sedentary for a whole month and have never in my life felt like more of a slug. I was finally able to take a goddamn shower for the first time since surgery three days ago. I’ve been pretty much useless to anybody. I’m actually sort of looking forward to going back to work next week. Looking forward to getting back on the diet train after tomorrow too.

Covalent Blonde

Congrats to you as well!

theeWeeBabySeamus

@Col. Duke…. How did the drain situation work out, if I may ask?

Col. Duke LaCross

Got the last two out last Tuesday. As for the other “drain,” its gone from “cantaloupe” to “softball” size the last couple days, so I think I’m finally trending in the right direction. And the plumbing still works. Hot nurse chick has the patience of a goddamn Buddhist.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Good deal.

Unsurprised

I am desperately afraid of needing that bariatric surgery

theeWeeBabySeamus

I just woke up from the best nap evar. Which is good.
Now I’ll be awake all night. Which is bad.
When I woke up, all the idiots I cooked for were gone and out of my house. Which is good.
They’ll be back tomorrow. Which is bad.

Glass half full or half empty?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Does the glass have potassium benzoate?

theeWeeBabySeamus

I was actually hoping for potassium cyanide. But sure, let’s try your thing first.

Well, guess you’re watching the Australian Open final tonight, too.

I know we have some law doggies on this here website. Please answer me this: Is there a point in your law education where you have to choose “evil” or “good” before proceeding with your further education; are there different courses you have to take for one or the other? I mean, the difference in the philosophies between folks like Schiff and folks like Cipollone/Dershowitz certainly seem like they took completely different course disciplines in law. Kinda like in my career field, you could pursue Petroleum Geology or Environmental Geology. They are not much alike.

WCS
Viva La Tabula Raza

Fucking thumbs up for Al Jaffee anyway. Man, that shit takes me back about a half century.

Dunstan

For 98% of lawyers, it’s all basically grey. Whichever field you work in, whatever side you tend to work on, you’ll have clients who deserve to win, clients who deserve to lose, and a whole bunch where it’s somewhere in the middle. Like, even if you decide “I’m gonna represent low-income tenants against shitty landlords!” eventually you’re going to find yourself repping some deadbeat who’s lying about the plumbing not working so he can stiff a decent landlord who’s just trying to make a living — which you won’t know until you’re halfway into the case, and you don’t get to just ditch every client who doesn’t conform to your fantasies.

TRUE WCS FACT: The tall guy in the suit around the 2:58 mark is my former neighbor, and remains a family friend. His nephew is constantly-broken linebacker, Sean Lee.

Kevin also said that Bill Murray took everyone in this scene out to dinner that night, on his dime, and that Bill Murray is a wonderfully nice man.

THIS HAS BEEN A TRUE WCS FACT

Viva La Tabula Raza

I wish Bill Murray was President.

I’d support going to a monarchy if was King Bill I of America.

I’m all on board.

Got to see them live in Norman. As a young lass, I was mesmerized by the show

Viva La Tabula Raza

Were you surrounded by Sooners at the show? Or, (gasp), were you a Sooner?

Covalent Blonde

For a teensy weensy semester I was a Sooner until the Longhorns snatched up my scholarship and offered me a far better deal. I was 16 and didn’t know any better!

35 years or so ago, I was soooo jealous that Ray Davies was banging Chrissie Hynde on the regular. Still am, for that matter.

Viva La Tabula Raza

What, they did a live sex show on stage?!?! I am very envious that you saw that, I would have missed it due to still being over in WestPac with USN. Did she have a hairy bush? I bet she did.

Covalent Blonde

I definitely put my money on a Hynde ‘fro of the 80s. I’d be down!

What About Bob? is very underrated

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvVKFCP5cCA

Covalent Blonde

The problem is that my father’s name is Bob, and solidly for five years after its release he would ask apropos of nothing, “What about Bob?”. To make it even more obnoxious, this reference was ultimately wholly unrelated to the film.

Unsurprised

I hate this movie
