Chaos Theory is a new theory invented by scientists panicked by the thought that the public were beginning to understand the old ones.

My 'Dock' hymen was busted a couple weeks ago when a group of us went to go see Bag of Donuts play there. The place was pretty big, but it was packed. And I mean shoulder to shoulder, wait in line for an hour for 1 beer, I don't care what you think, you're not peeing at all kinda packed.

Even besides that, It didn't seem like my kinda bar. It had the whole Florida tourist trap bar kinda appeal, like you wouldn't be suprised if you could buy one of those oh-so-witty hats that says "I Hate Seagulls" with fake bird shit splattered all over them.

Anyway, I was forced to go again on Tuesday, due to my girlfriend giving her solemn word to a guy she's seen probably 10 times in her life, that she would see his band play. I would be worried about that, if I were less of a man, but as it happens, me being less of a man is a statistical impossibility. Luckily enough, we were able to trick a small gaggle of friends to come along to share our grief -- and knowing the type we slum with, we now have a couple more friends from whom we can expect retribution from, post haste.

So, if you're wondering what the basic rundown was, here goes: The band we came to see sucked. The band that played after them was better, but still sucked. We got really drunk on a Tuesday. If you don't wear underwear, and don't shake enough after peeing, you sometimes get a little wet spot on the front of your jeans. It doesn't matter how drunk you are, if you drink enough ice water to the point of physical pain before you go to sleep, you most probably will not wake up with a hangover.

I know its superbowl weekend and all, but I had to get this in, for posterity, if for nothing else. Last weekend we, and by that I mean the 'cool people', decided it was a great day to go to the zoo. Animals were seen and beer was drank. All in all we had quite a swell time.

Of course, going to the zoo comes with its little worries. Will a monkey decide to fling poop on me? Will a ..., ok, well, the monkey poop-flinging is about at the top of my list, but no, that didn't happen. However, I did get nachos, or as the nacho booth spelled it, 'Nachoe's". Yes, that's an 'e' on the end. And yes, that and apostrophe before the 's'. I should be posting things like this within a closer temporal vicinity of the actual occurence, seeming as I'm sure there were more anecdotes I could share with you, but looking though the beer haze, and a full week of work, this was all I could come up with.

It was also my inagural 'trip' to anywhere of importance with my new digital camera. So, there's a shitload more pictures than you'll see here, but being my first real picture taking experience with it, I took a great many. If I were to show them all, the server would surely smoke and pop.

As many of you have probably noticed, the website is having a little work done on it. I finally surrendered and am leaving behind the days when you have to drag and highlight everything on the site in order to read it. Sure, sure, I was in denial about black backgrounds for a while, but I've finally awoken.

So, I downloaded the gimp the other day, and didn't really have anything to do with it at the time, so I just started throwing some shapes and colors together. Well, after a while it started taking shape, and BAM, I had sitting before me the basic design you see now. The drop shadow around the edge of the main table took quite a bit of time, considering my feeble design skills and total lack of experience with style sheets, but its there, for better or for worse. You may notice it break up a bit when the form gets long (ie, lots o comments, etc), but other than that it works for me, and after all, that's the only person its really gotta work for.

You may also notice the 'Quick Links' thing at the bottom there. A nice touch I thought, you may not think so, but then we'll just go back to the 'only gotta work for me' thing again, and I feel better already. You can suggest new links via the link below the links (that a lot o links). If you do, try to make 'em wacky, and if at all possible, non-transient.

Well, thats about it, I'm going to try to do a little more journal - type writing on here, and maybe that will keep it more fresh, and interesting enough for me to post more often.

Well, you may be wondering why in the hell you couldn't access my site for a couple of days there, and then again, maybe you could have enjoyed the time away to do those things you know you've always wanted to do. Go skydiving, brush up on the macramae, wittle your penis into a bloody, flacid bust of W.C. Fields, using only a potato peeler. And then there's the possibility that you could have given two shits.

Well, if you must know, take a look at this post, and see if you can glean the reason by paying close attention to the date it was placed online (you may also notice there's an abudance of comments attributed to the wrong news posts, but that's another story). Can't figure it out? give up? Well then leave, I never much liked quitters anyways -- you can just go hang out with all your quitter friends at AA, pussy.

Above and beyond all of that, I got paid the other day, gathered together about two to three christmasses worth of Best Buy gift certificates, and am seriously thinking about taking a trip up there tonight and wrangling myself a digital camera (at last). I mean, all the cool kids are doing it, right? After the completion of this quest, I will from then on own a conduit through which I may share, with you humble reader, the joys, pains, triumphs, and sexual escapades of my notoriously torrid life. Or maybe I'll just take pictures of little birdies. Not sure yet.

a week late, but what can you do? i had work last week and was pretty much broke. so this saturday, it's on.


my brother is now twenty-three. and because it's good to drink beer and turn up the music and q up and watch with concern while i make an ass of myself. again.

so if you've met my brother and want to show your love for him you'll want to stop by. this would also be a triple-header party because (as mentioned before) los roomates are marking five years of togetherness today and then tomorrow is matt's birthday. i don't know which one. 35th? 80th? 12th? i don't know. he's not the same age as me, that's for sure. but he's gonna be out of town for a belfry bats show. so if you'd rather celebrate his birthday, you should get here earlier in the day so you can follow him. or you can come out friday to checkpoint charlie's (again) to see analogue missionary (again). but they're nice kids and who knows... might be fun. i know i've got to throw at least a couple pitchers matt's way. perhaps some of you might want to do same.

but anyway, about my brother (if you haven't met him)... when it comes to the boys in my family, he got the looks, the charm, and the ability to kick your ass. all of that in addition to a fine appreciation for the imbibable liquids. i think the only thing i've got over him is years and an iffy dose of musical talent. so if you like putting up with me, you'll love him to death and probably offer to puff his peter. and you don't even need to feel bad about it. pretty much everyone wants to eventually. he's just that cool.

so, a quick run down on things nathan likes (in case you want to buy a present for someone you don't know all that well) (and besides, i like sharing my results from image-googling):

i think the thing that mostly sets my brother and i apart in the things we like department is cars. nathan loves bad ass cars. i mean, i do too. but he likes them enough to know what makes 'em tick.

he's my brother and kim's sister, so he smokes and drinks. and what does he smoke and drink?

kool filter kings. one reason i've heard many times is that people don't bum cigarettes off of you if you smoke menthols. and i can understand that. menthols taste fucking weird.

he drinks beer. he's not choosy. not a beer snob. cold? fizzy? available? close enough. i'll try to have a variety of things available, but probably nothing as great as this.

so get here saturday night. if it's rainy or cold, we'll just set another fire downstairs. kenny will be out of town anyway.
