So hey hi yo, what’s up? I finally took a break over the weekend and went to visit my mom in WNY and hit a family friend’s graduation party. It wasn’t totally planned out this way, but it turned into a working vacation…spent so much time on Friday and Saturday with tech support and futzing around with website tools that seemingly don’t apply to me.
This is the issue that has plagued me not only since I learned I was gonna get published, but with basically everything I look for when I want something: It’s simple and common-sensical, yet it doesn’t fucking exist. Sneakers, phone plans, tv stands, Innoscale website themes…nothin’. A fucking button that I can put on my home screen that takes you to this fucking blog (which already has its own damn sub-domain, which better fucking update when I post this entry…and apologies for being so sweary but that’s just me and who I am so it’s up to you to adjust to me and not the other way around…don’t worry; I still love you).
The grad party was dope…the oldest daughter of my late brother’s closest friends graduated, and yoooooooo! Instead of the standard boring crap everyone serves at large get-togethers, they had a mawfuggin’ taco bar. And tough shit if you don’t like tacos, cuz rules is rules.
This is the coolest way to party. Like, I’m calling my shot…from now on if you invite me to anything, don’t even think about not having a full-fledged taco bar. Unless you have a “make your own omelet” or “make your own pizza” bar. I will cancel all other plans for any of those three situations…that’s my word. Catered parties and songs played at weddings should be added to the “death and taxes are the only things you can count on” list thingey.
Which, I guess, means it’s time for a playlist. It’s good to go back where I came from, but it’s also good to be back where I am. Jam along with me while I relax before getting back into the tech-support grind my life’s been stuck in a neutral/reverse cycle tomorrow…
- Motley Crue, “Home Sweet Home”
- Kanye West & Jay Z, “No Church In The Wild (feat. Frank Ocean)”
- Beastie Boys, “Finger Lickin’ Good (Government Cheese Remix)”
- Better Than Ezra, “Summer House”
- Atmosphere, “Always Coming Back Home To You (Hidden Track: “Say Shhh”)”
- Bobby Womack, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco”
- The Velvet Underground, “Beginning To See The Light”
- A Tribe Called Quest, “Award Tour”
- The Get Up Kids, “Like A Man Possessed”
- O.A.R., “I Feel Home”
- Hawksley Workman, “Ilfracombe”
- Hey Mercedes, “Haven’t Been This Happy”
What a wonderful sentiment to end on (sort of)! Ok, I’m gonna put some of the leftover Pizza Hut with my mom as a break from Friday/Saturday’s website fiasco in my body until it forces me to take a nap…then I may as well actually check my email from like the last day or so. Then I’m gonna spread some love I think…or maybe get reacquainted with my Xbox and Rockband if my arms allow it, because I miss the drumming I didn’t do and I need some stress relief that includes hitting things with sticks. Peace, you guys rock, and hey, simple reminder: tell all your friends about this stuff I’m doing that’s too incredible to believe. Be the “root” in grassroots. And keep kickin’ the ass I can’t. Much love; please spread it around like a cake piece on someone’s birthday at the office. Even better if you ain’t got an office.
