Flush It Friday: LET THE SUN SHINE

Welcome back to Friday afternoon, the sweetest part of the whole week.

For a 9-to-5er, nothing beats Friday afternoon. This moment is the longest possible amount of time until you have to return to work on Monday. This moment marks the point where no reasonable employer can expect another task out of you. This moment isn’t QUITE yet the weekend so there’s still the possibility that you could do something amazing, instead of sitting on your couch until bedtime Sunday night. And even if you do waste your weekend (you will), there’s even better news waiting for you Sunday night:

MOTHERFUCKING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS.

The last four months have been a cold, black, miserable failure. Literally nothing good has happened since November. Fortunately, our long national nightmare is over. This Sunday I’m throwing away my seasonal affective disorder lamp because I’ll never need it again. This Sunday we gain an extra hour of sunlight. This Sunday, everything will be OK.

No longer will I go to work before sunrise just to leave in the pitch black nothingness. I don’t have to rush to get outdoor activities completed by 5pm. The tyranny over “Falling back” is over. We’re “Springing forward”, setting our clocks ahead by an hour, and never looking back again.

Good: Oh my sweet lord, more sunlight.
Bad: I sloughed off a giant callus on my hand while deadlifting.
Ugly: The real estate market in Austin.

This is Flush it Friday, your weekly opportunity to celebrate that which does not vex us. It’s your turn. Take it to the comments below and get it off your chest.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Good: Hells Headbash 3 tickets purchased. LET’S FUCKING DIE!
    Bad: Still at work for an extra half hour.
    Ugly: Need a fucking beer. BEER ME BRO!

    • Work sucks.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        And there is a killer show in Detroit, I won’t be attending. Fuck!

        • Well, I have another half an hour too. Still have to cycle over a goddamn mountain to get home though. That’s more work than actual work.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Tru dat, brah. It would be just so awful if the mountain fell on you.

          • I hope it does. Crush my soul right into hell.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Fuck yes. Die you son of a bitch.

          • Well shit, you are King Shit of Fuck Mountain. Make it so.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            It shall come to pass.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            If I was gonna kill myself I’d use garrotte wire and glue my hands to my head so that it looked like I’d pulled my own head off.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Ha ha ha ha, brilliant

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            “Crush my soul” MAKE ME FEEEEEELLLLL!!!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT0puCcvHZU

  • BAD: HELLS HEADBASH PART 3 TICKET PURCHASED!!!!

    BAD: SOLD MDF TICKET!!!!

    BAD: BEER TONIGHT!!!

    BAD: Rode my bike to work 5 days in a row this week since the weather has been so nice. I got 90 miles in and climbed a mountain 10 times total. Those beers are going to taste so good tonight.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      You positive fuck!

      • Fixed it.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Hahaha.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    Ironically the end of all of your weeks (you people, the 9-5ers) has become the end of my weekend, generally.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      You just had to say that, didn’t you?

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Absolutely.

        You peep the new Plebeian Grandstand track yet KSOFM? Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. I dunno if you’d like them, or not.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Never even heard of them, bro.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™
          • Dubs

            I thiiiink Tyree likes them. We’ve talked about them, anyway.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            On the Toilet? I miss so much shit anyway.

          • Dubs

            The last time they popped up in an actual post was well over a year ago.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Well, that explains it.

          • Dubs

            Indeed. I had to look myself. I knew it was a long while ago.

      • ed’s obviously a racist

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Totes.

  • Dubs

    Good: We got our second ToH game of Diplomacy going, and things are already getting interesting.
    Bad: Lack of sleep lately, not much else.
    Ugly: This morning I had to get up early to film traffic as I have had to do many other times before for our traffic engineering projects. Unfortunately, this morning my observation point was in a residential area, so I probably looked like some kind of pervert sitting in my car in the early morning with an expensive dslr and long-range lens.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Your ugly, sounds hot.

      • Dubs

        It would have been hotter if you were there counting traffic with me.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Dude, especially if I was standing at the street corner giving out raunchy ass handies…..

    • EsusMoose

      One day our nations shall clash but that is probably eventually. Maybe, I don’t know

      • Dubs

        the mystery makes it so interesting.

        • EsusMoose

          I’ve thought about trying to figure out who is who but there’s no beneficial in-game reason to know. That and communication is sparse

          • this sounds exactly like somebody deflecting attention away from a secret alliance forged in FB chat

          • EsusMoose

            Don’t think I didn’t think about that but I realized that wouldn’t be anything different than the built in messenger feature so I stopped

          • with all my alt accounts, i’ve become pretty good at deflection and deflection detection. also, by having this discussion i think we did a good job of throwing people off.

          • EsusMoose

            People will never realize that we’re maybe not actually deflecting a deflection about things that could be the same but aren’t the same but clearly are the same.

    • RustyShackleford

      I’m now way more interested in this filming of traffic than I feel like I should be.

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        You should start doing it too.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          But with no pants.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            And sandals.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Nice pervy combo.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            With socks of two different colors.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Naturally.

          • way to go and make it weird

          • more beer

            And a sign that says. Free Candy!

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            And the sign needs to be finger painted. With residual paint still on your index and middle fingers

          • more beer

            Yes for maximum creepy.

        • RustyShackleford

          IF someone questions Dubs, it’s his job, if someone questions me “I read about this on a toilet blog and thought it sounded cool”

          RIGHT IN THE SLAMMER

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I don’t see the problem here…

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Like I said, shit sounds hot.

      • Dubs

        It’s literally the least interesting part of my job. I just set up a camera, press record, and do something else until the video stops. Then later I watch the video and use a macro’d excel sheet to count vehicles in certain lanes.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Whoa, your life sounds amazing, doc.

          • Dubs

            I live for the thrill of the excel sheet.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I was screwing with one today. Color coding it like a motherfucker.

          • Dubs

            That’s my favorite part.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You sad, little man.

          • Dubs

            You don’t know how hot my spreadsheets are.

        • EsusMoose

          I’m guessing this is a situation where I’m doing research is both the best and creepiest answer when asked what you’re doing.

  • EsusMoose

    Good: Got baroness tickets. Enjoying the slow excitement that is diplomacy.
    Bad: exam time and so far it’s been rocky.
    Ugly: Living area is a mess. My life is studying algorithms for the next 120 hours.

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    Good: Amenra’s Mass III arrived in the mail ==> completed the Amenra catalogue.

    Bad: consistently having to help others out. I mean, I like doing favors. But it gets a bit tiresome when people start calling you 10 times a day.
    Also, this week I seem to be on an incurable When the Kite String Pops binge.

    Ugly: my shoulder still hurts like fucking hell. Looks like I’ll have to take a short break from lifting weights.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Acid Bath, dope.

    • Waynecro

      I’m dealing with an old shoulder injury as well. It makes some lifts terribly unpleasant. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Thanks man. It’s been some 3 weeks already since I injured my shoulder, but I just kept working out. Benching has become fucking torture.

        • Waynecro

          I’m still working out as well, but it’s beginning to hurt just a bit too much. I’m concerned I’ll have to see a doctor or something.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            In most cases it just ends up being a pulled muscle. Nothing major, but it can be pretty damn annoying.

          • Waynecro

            My injury feels a little crunchier than a pulled muscle usually does, so I’m hoping it’s nothing serious.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      What do you do?

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        The “helping others out” part doesn’t really have anything to do with work. It just seems I’m the go-to guy in the neighborhood for all sorts of problems or things others want to do.
        Some guy wants to rent a car in Germany, but can’t speak German for shit ==> I get a call.
        Some guy has to send an important email message ==> I get a call because apparently I’m “better with words”.

        The list goes on and on and on. Consistently doing these kind of small favors, because others over here are too fucking lazy to at least try to sort shit out themselves before they start seeking someone else’s (me, in this case) help.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          That sounds awful. Figuring shit out on your own is an important skill to have.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            True. I hate to say this about some guys I consider ‘pals’ but a lot of people living near me don’t exactly fall into the ‘big brained’ segment of the population.

    • Old Man Doom

      ACID BATH >>>>>>

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      What is this from?

      • No clue. I think it’s just some home footage.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Hah, even better.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      That literally rocked his socks off.

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    Good/Bad/Ugly: I’m moving this weekend. Probably won’t be around here too much, but I’ll check in when I can.

    • EsusMoose

      Good luck with the move, at least winter is gone.

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        Thanks man!

  • Good: A certain detective will be visiting me tomorrow for some of the best BBQ in the US (they’re rated number 4 on Yelp’s 100 best places to eat in the US).
    Bad: Gotta get some cleaning and yardwork done so he doesn’t think I live like a hobo.
    Ugly: Yo momma.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Maaaaannn, I wanna have bbq with jimmy…
      Have fun!

    • whoa whoa whoa, if you clean that means i have to be presentable.

      • Nah, it’s just getting rid of the dog hair that somehow finds it’s way into every. single. crevice. in the entire fucking house.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Have fun on your date, lovebirds.

      • i’ll report back on which of us is the Gyllenhaal and which is the Ledger.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          It will be nice to know which one can’t quit the other….

      • slathering sticky BBQ sauce all over each other can’t go wrong

    • EsusMoose

      Oh man BBQ sounds great. Last night my roommate gave me one of the pork ribs he made. So fucking good. Have a good time and take an awkward selfie together

    • RustyShackleford

      Am getting BBQ tonight >>>>>>>>

  • Waynecro

    Good: I’m planning to play a shit ton of Tom Clancy’s The Division tonight.
    Bad: More sunlight.
    Ugly: Some of my relatives are visiting from the East Coast, so I have to try to convince my ex to tidy up her sections of the house’s common areas.

    • What platform you playing on, bruh? I’ve been playing with a couple friends on PS4

      • Waynecro

        Xbox One. I may play with some guys I usually play Battlefield: Hardline and Rainbow Six Siege with, but my The Division character is so ruggedly handsome, I’m afraid he’ll distract other players.

    • RustyShackleford

      That game looks SICK. I’m gonna get it eventually no doubt.

      • Waynecro

        I had a blast with the beta, so I have high hopes for the full game.

    • more beer

      I told you to buy her a mop for Christmas.

      • Waynecro

        She just has boxes and stacks of paper all over the place.

        • more beer

          Throw it all in the yard. Then a bic lighter or a match will remedy the situation.

          • Waynecro

            I like the way you think, man. If nothing else, I’ll just throw all her shit in her room.

          • more beer

            I was arguing with an ex girlfriend. Her friend started putting in her 2 cents. So I told her to get the fuck out of my house. She wouldn’t shut up. Her fur coat was on my couch. I picked it up walked out to the balcony. ( it was storming out) Threw that coat right into a big puddle in the parking lot. She got the hint and left. Sometimes you have to show them you are not fucking around.

          • Waynecro

            What I really need is to win a bunch of money so I can buy the house outright. Then she could move out and stop kicking my heart in the dick every day.

          • more beer

            That is a pipe dream. You have to make her hate you so much she chooses to leave. Do disgusting things. Scratch your nuts then give her a cookie. You know things like that.

          • Waynecro

            I imagine she’ll leave on her own when she gets serious with another dude, which I think is already beginning to happen.

          • more beer

            I’m not trying to sound like an asshole. But that might be the best thing that can happen to you.

          • Waynecro

            It’s cool, man. You’re probably right.

          • more beer

            It is much easier when you don’t have to see them anymore.

          • Waynecro

            I bet. It’s hard as shit seeing her every day.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            The best thing that can happen to you is when an ex that gave you shit in the past after a while makes a booty call again; after which you get over to her house, fuck her brains out and within the first two minutes after finishing (preferably in her face) you put on your jacket, lit a cigarette (even if you don’t smoke) without saying a word and you leave her porch with screeching tires.

          • Waynecro

            There are some truly wise bros in here.

          • more beer

            Usually when this happens. They have come to my place. I threw ones clothes out my door into the hallway of my apartment building, just before throwing her out. That also works.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Brutal, but appropriate.

          • more beer

            What’s even more brutal. Is she kept calling me even after that.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Damn. Some people really get aroused after being humiliated.

          • more beer

            Or they are just fucking crazy.

          • “Your problem now, pal”

          • more beer

            Well said.

          • Waynecro

            More like “Your wonderful, awesome, intelligent, attractive, financially independent woman now, pal.” I need to go lift something heavy now.

          • more beer

            That’s quite a sales pitch. If you make it sound to good to be true. They will high tail it out of there.

          • Waynecro

            Whoever she’s with from now on had better never get anywhere near me.

          • don’t let that dude rustle your jimmies TOO much. it’s the ex who needs to grow up

          • Waynecro

            Thanks, dude. We agreed that neither of us would bring new people back to the house, so I hope she keeps her word.

          • …and you know i meant that respectfully. as in, i haven’t met your ex and am just going by your descriptions.

          • Waynecro

            I gotcha, dude. Thanks.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Move to Chicago. Let’s start a band.

          • Waynecro

            I have always wanted to recreate the opening credits from Perfect Strangers.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            … I can’t promise I’ll be there for that but the band stuff, I’m down.

          • Waynecro

            Sounds like a plan, robobro. I’ll give you a heads-up if I end up in Chicago.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Plz do! Let’s hit some breweries!

          • Waynecro

            I will take all of the city’s sport peppers and neon-green relish as a souvenir of my visit.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I will take you to see the Wrigleyville bro scene so we can look forward to suicide

          • Waynecro

            I always look forward to suicide–er, I mean, accidental death (for insurance purposes).

          • more beer

            Don’t give a fuck who she is with. With any luck, he will turn out to be a total douchebag and do her wrong.

          • Waynecro

            Honestly, I still want the best for her. I just don’t want to know about it.

  • megachiles

    Deadlift callous sloughing is the worst. I kno dem feelz Joe 🙁

    Good: Officially moving to St. Paul for grad school, and finally developing some projects! The wife and I are gonna miss Austin, but the Twin Cities look dope.

    Bad: The logistics/cost of moving. SXSW is in town. The cat has been a jerk lately. I’m going to die in a skiing or ice fishing accident.

    Ugly: My lifting buddy put me up to competing in our gym’s annual squat contest with him, and I’ve been listening to synth pop for two days straight. I wasn’t expecting to impress at this thing, but breaking PRs doesn’t happen listening to Sparks.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      St. Paul? Cool. Have you already learned to speak Hmong? Haha!

      • megachiles

        St. Paul Move To-Do List:

        1. Buy pants.
        2. Buy boots.
        3. Familiarize self with snow.
        4. Familiarize dog with snow.
        5. Lutefisk?
        6. Learn Hmong.

    • When are you heading to the great white north?

      • megachiles

        Sometime at the end of July when our lease is up. I’m bad at this whole “finding a place to live” thing, so no clue if we’re making the move immediately or if we’ll have to crash with our folks for a week or two between leases.

        The move itself will be pretty simple thankfully: 18ish hours up I-35…

        • EsusMoose

          Huh 35 does reach weirdly left. Beware the Iowa and southern MN portion, shit is boring

          • megachiles

            Years of driving through west Texas to visit Grandma have prepared me for this drive. I will prevail.

            Iowa might be tough, because when we drive by corn fields my wife pretends she’s Matthew McConaughey in Interstellar. This typically takes the form of her yelling “MURRRRRPPPH!” until I get angry.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      I live over in Golden Valley which is 20 – 30 minutes away from St. Paul. Actually moving over to St. Paul myself in a couple months…

      • megachiles

        Ayyyyyyyy, party! I’ll shout out whe. We finally have an idea of where we’ll end up.

    MOTHERFUCKING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS
    http://cdn.meme.am/instances/500x/21279335.jpg

  • Max

    Ugly: A whole week of soupy, humid weather and thus, my armpits.

    Bad: The vocalist in my band quit after one rehearsal. Back to the fucking drawing board.

    Good: I’m confident we should be able to find another vocalist. Maybe even a vokill-ist.

    Extra good: Going to see Sunn0))) tonight with a free ticket and fresh earplugs. I know the guy who’s mixing it and apparently their rider says something like “Everything has to be as loud as possible.”

    XXXtra good: Worked sound last night for a stand-up comedy show, didn’t realize that was going to include a set by a bubble-blowing, Transylvanian burlesque dancer. She was cool/hot.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Besides the armpits, all that sounds pretty freaking cool!

      • Max

        It’s not even the armpits I mind, really. Brow sweat pisses me off way more. You’re always having to wipe yourself.

        • Dubs

          The booty sweat, Max.

          • Rob M

            …crotch funk

          • Óðinn
          • Max

            Actually that doesn’t bother me either.

            Thinking about it now, it occurs to me that where I really hate sweating is on parts of my body that don’t have hair, because it just gets wet and slippery on the smooth skin and drips right off it. (Well, I have long straight hair; so sweat is never fun on top of the head, either.)

            But on the body, I’m one of the hairiest guys you’ll see – butt, back, shoulders, chest, the whole nine yards – and sweat just seems to get “captured” and neutralized on those parts.

          • Dubs

            I’m bald, and when i eat spicy food, sweat pools on top of my head.

          • Max

            Bald friends tell me similar things!

          • Dubs

            A spare napkin is my best friend at Mexican restaurants.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Same problem here.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Everyone just needs matching ST bandannas.

          • Dubs

            I’m in.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            With all of the bald guys and sweat problems, there needs to be an official TovH bandanna released with the next batch of shirts. They’re cheaper, but you still get the logo. Looks good at the gym, on the trails, in the pit and on dogs.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Aaaaand it can help with the disqus bill

          • I just buzzed all my hair off. I’m down.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            YES!

          • was that a tough decision?

            I’m going to ask you a question that may make me sound like a crazy person, but bear with me. When you first shaved your head, did you notice any “electrical aberrations” for the first few months? Right after I shaved mine, I found that I had a lot of static built up on me constantly. I would shock friends through door handles and once completely zapped a DVD player just by touching it. I had to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work again.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Never happened to me, but I wish I would’ve gotten those “gifts” as well.

          • Dubs

            They went away after a while 🙁

    Bad: I have a shitload of grading to do tonight. Fuck. Also, the GF is kinda mad at me for being late to dinner last night for reasons out of my control. Damn it.
    Ugly: Getting caught in the fucking rain while walking to and from work this morning.

    Fuck this week. Bring on the sun. Slam your head against the concrete and feel good about it:

      I feel you on the recording. I’ve been writing riffs all week in what little free time I had, but now I can’t seem to build songs just yet.

    • Dubs

      Last year my dad basically ripped apart his upstairs area and built new closets, built a new walk-in shower, and laid down bamboo flooring.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Jealous.

        • Dubs

          He is exceptionally handy around the house. I’m hoping I’ve inherited some of that. I haven’t had to do much more than re-finish some furniture and landscaping.

      • bamboo flooring is the rocket. and from what little research i did several years ago, is cheaper than hardwood (confirmation anyone?)

        • Dubs

          I’d have to ask him about cost.

        • more beer

          Except nothing is hardwood anymore. Everything is those composite flooring materials. I was in a brand new at least million dollar custom home yesterday. It had that crap too.

          • laminate? yeah my house came with laminate on the ground floor and glorious, “eat lunch off it” bamboo upstairs.

        . . .how do you do it?

    Bad: One less hour until the start of a new work week.

  • Salvador Dalí Lama

    GOOD: Honkey season is almost over, meaning less work to do. My knee is not as bruised and bad as it was on Sunday. Got my yearly haircut. I actually look like another person and feel weird. Bye-bye drug dealer Kylo Ren look.

    BAD: Hockey season is almost over, meaning less hours and I need to buy my own insurance. Thinking of applying to my local Stew Leonard’s for the time being.

    UGLY: Need some writing advice. I wrote a entire first part to my storyline, now I keep wanting to go back and do it with a different premise, or just re-arrange it to be better and simpler. Problem is all my second guessing is making me procrastinate again.

    PS: When I was at Whole Foods, I saw this attractive girl who kept buying the same stuff I was. Looked like she had cool arm tattoo as well. If only I wasn’t a confidence-less, childish, boring pissant that still lives at home and has no prospects…

    • Scrimm

      Just get it out, dude. first drafts arent seen by anybody but you anyway. That was a hurdle I had too but you have to learn to just let it flow, let the story out and then you can always come back and rewrite later.

      • Salvador Dalí Lama

        I’ve done a first draft before, but only got 3/4ths through it. But I’ll try that. Are you supposed to do characters before the plot though? I’ve been winging it, but noticed there’s some inconsistencies in their actions or reasoning.

        • Scrimm

          I honestly don’t really plot, I follow more the King style where I have a setup and in effect let the characters tell me the story as I’m writing it. In a first draft I dont worry so much about those inconsistencies TOO much. Rewriting is magic.

          • Salvador Dalí Lama

            I try to balance in the plot with a rough idea of the characters. I’ve come up with the idea of drafting it out like a video game. Level 1, then boss, Level 2, then boss, type writing.

            Do you find writing the end first makes writing the rest easier?

          • Scrimm

            Nope because then I felt forced to lead the characters to that outcome. I might have had a vague Idea of how I wanted the thing to end up, but never really had any concrete idea of what happened to get it there. It was always fun, discovering the story as I went instead of stressing over following an outline. But I can totally see how that would work better for some people.

  • Being sick sucks much ass, especially when you never get sick(like me).

    • more beer

      I just went through 3 weeks of sick. Thanks to my buddy and his kids. I want to kill them all.

      • I don’t even remember the last time I got sick. Me & Mom are polar opposites in this respect. I never get sick, and her immune system is shot.

        • DVRKBEVRD

          before i quit drinking and cigs i never got sick.

          • I used to get sick 1-2 a year in either March or October like clockwork, can’t really point to any change that altered anything.
            This is also a “strep throat” year for me, every 6 years during either Spring or Summer I get it.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            i dont even remember the last time i got strep throat. college maybe? im overexposed to germs and bacteria and all kinds of shit with the kinds of jobs ive always had. perhaps that has helped bolster my immune system

          • Usually if I hit the ER and they see I have crap down there, they’ll pop it and send me home with some antibiotics and painkillers, so it doesn’t totally suck.

        • more beer

          I don’t get sick very often. This last time was brutal. As it was viral and there wasn’t anything I could do but run it’s course.

  • J Pop Power Metal Hot Buns

    The Good: Pretty chill week, as usual, and jamming plenty of tech death/slam through the week (Sothoth, Analepsy, Vulvodynia, etc). Also got a new music interview done. Getting that up and over to Papa Joe sometime today.

    The bad: Stomach’s been acting weird over the last week and a half. Nothing major (or so I hope), but it’s been feeling like a bacteria-ridden swamp in my belly as of late.
    Also, RIP Keith Emerson. The 2016 celebrity death march rolls on……

    The Ugly: This crazy Ukranian chick who just went to trial (for killing two journalists). Yeep, that is one creepy ass mug!
