- Frank: I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Besides, I got a big day tomorrow. You guys have a great time.
- College Student: A big day? Doing what?
- Frank: Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

They suck. My head hurts, my gag reflex is in full effect, I sweat uncontrollably and out of nowhere doze off. It’s amazing how something sooo good can make you feel soooo bad. I wonder how many times I’ve said “Dude, I’m never going to drink again. EVER.” And then somehow I’ll still find myself in the depths of a lonely tavern later that day, sipping/gulping away.
Below is my hangover prevention concoction - Right before bed and/or before you start drinking take the following:
- Two tums or some type of antacid (charcoal pills are AWESOME!)
- A bunch of B-vitamins
- Couple Ibuprofen
- Few glasses of water
The next morning… drink some coffee and if you can stomach it, a shot or some sort of alcohol. Doesn’t always work (after a fifth of tequila for example) but it can save lives if you weren’t too crazy the night before.
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated… b/c tomorrow will probably be the same story for me and the potion above didn’t seem to work today.
In no particular order. I’m probably missing lots. It’s only 10. Suggestions????….
- MGMT (on albums & Remixes, not live)
- Lil Wayne
- Justice (Ed Banger in general)
- The Raconteurs / White Stripes (Jack White)
- Eagles of Death Metal
- The Mars Volta
- Mashups (Girl Talk, Crookers, many others…)
- Does It Offend You, Yeah?
When is wireless energy gonna be made available to the general public? Come on scientists, get your shit together and gimme what I need. Laying in bed just now I knocked a glass of water all over myself b/c the power cord for my laptop took out it’s legs. I’m pissed, wet, and unconfident in our technological evolution.
On the plus side, I just watched all of Californication from a jacked source, on the tv through my computer, with the bombest sound on the block. So maybe technology is doin alright. Hank Moody is a bad ass… he knows what steez is and he’s the fuckin Man. Keep on keepin’ on brother.
I don’t consider myself one for dramatics… but HOLY FUCKING SHIT! These fires are bananas. The total number of residences that have torched is something like this (so far): 500 in Sylmar fire, over 100 near Anaheim, 80 in Montecito, and well over 100 in Santa Barbara. Although this is somewhat standard in So Cal, I think this one has gotta be one for the record books.
Being as I work for a newspaper company, my knowledge of the fires should have been a bit more precise yesterday when I was recklessly drinking myself through a Saturday afternoon. But… it was not. I was just chillin when I realized that the sky was getting pretty damn gray. In Seattle this was normal, but that was because God hates Seattle and had sent Jesus to piss on us. Here in LA, there was a solid cloud of smoke billowing into downtown, mainly coming from the Valley via the Santa Ana winds. It was a little surreal… most all freeways shut down, bars unusually empty (much to my dismay), and a tingly smell of smoke lingering.
Sympathy goes out to those who’ve lost their homes in this mess. My family and I lost our home in Washington when a wild-ass-fire spread so quick that we didn’t even have time to grab our toothbrushes. It’s a pretty shitty feeling. Everything that you’ve collected, worked on, established, etc. turns into ash and your left saying, “What the FUCK just happened???!”. So while I may sound like I am joking around a little bit about this whole mess, I have mad understanding of what people are going through on this Sunday afternoon. My advice: take it in stride, if you have insurance use it wisely - buy yourself a new hobby, and in the future remember that throwing a lit cigarette on dry ground is a bad idea.
It is a crazy world we live in right now. The economy sucks, Barrack is finally President, Gay marriage is constantly being protested everywhere I look (which is incredibly justified and I’m not even gonna get into that right now), and then there are all these crazy natural disasters that continually remind us that one day the world is going to end. Luckily, I’ll be dead by then. Take that Al Gore.
