I Would Like to Thank My Friends and Family

First I would like to mention how much I miss all of my little Boogey Bops. Hop in the next car coming up here, I would love to see u guys. A shout out to my mom for the long hours. And a BIG 'What - What' to Tony and Chad for their tirelessness. Tony has been parking his big ass in a recliner every night. Chad was actually here for the first 48 hours solid and still looks exhausted.

Thanks for posting for me Kris.

I have never been so scared in my entire life.

Update on Sondra

Hey this is Kris. I'm giving you a brief history and update on Sondra's condition:

Tuesday April 14th Sondra experienced severe pain in her head. She was taken by ambulance to Truman Hospital where they discovered a bleeding aneurysm. She was then transported to Saint Luke's in KC where they did an angiogram and found she had another aneurysm that was still intact, not bleeding. She waited in Neurosurgery ICU that night, in severe pain but sedated, and was being prepped all night for surgery the next morning. She went into surgery around 10 AM on Wednesday. The surgery lasted about 4 hours. The aneurysms were safely removed without any complications. During the next few days she will be monitored for vascular spasms, which can cause strokes. She is receiving round the clock care and is never alone, having a host of family and friends visiting her as well as Chad, Tony and I staying with her throughout the day and night. Sondra is coming along wonderfully. She woke up hungry this morning, which is a good sign. She is still in pain but is now able to take oral meds for it.

Needless to say, Sondra is still her same self, making us laugh with her sarcasm, and flipping off the nurses (behind their backs) when they pull her hair!

Sondra still has her beautiful long hair, but being ever trendy, she is sporting a new look: a small amount of hair has been shaved along her right side from her ear to brow. I'm sure the look will catch on and take the nation by storm. Teens everywhere will be racing to their local beauty salons asking for "The Flo".

Thank you all for your well wishes. I will be posting here and on Facebook when I can. Sondra may be doing so herself, just today she asked for a laptop. She will have to wait until she gets out of ICU.

I Think This Is Really Funny


Canyon Seems to Think That His Mom, Cousin and Sister Look Better With Facial Hair

Danielle is Kevin Smith, I am Dave Navarro and I think MJ is the suspected pedophile that lives on everyone's street.

I Have Decided That This is My Favorite Blue October Song, As of Now

X Amount of Words
You're solar, bipolar
Panic disorder
Seems harder and harder and harder
Still you try to control it

Blue October, Cold April

It is a very deceptive day here in the KC metro. You know, the sun is shining bright and beautiful, then you step outside and it is freezing. The good news is Chad, Kris, Brett and I are off to Lawrence, KS tonight to see Blue October. I may be some sort of crazy, but I'm hoping that Justin's exuding hottness will keep me warm.

Dirt Room

I want to learn to walk with others as an equal I want to treat the ones who love me with respect I want to tell the world I'll give them all a piggyback And try to take away my negative effect I want to kiss the girl, And know I'll never lie again I want to call my dad and tell him that I care I want to let my brother know He saved my life a thousand times Throughout the years he's been my friend Who's always there

Sound of Pulling Heaven Down

The show was awesome. One of the best vocal performances I have seen in quite some time. My little crush on Justin is now a lot bigger! ;-)

Credit Where Credit is Due

Everybody loves the old Billy Idol classics (if you admit it or not) but it is little known that he put an album out in '93 that opened to horrible reviews, Cyberpunk. The only single to release to radio off of Cyberpunk was Shock to the System, which is the worst song on the album. The album has long been an underground sensation, you can still hear Heroin and Neuromancer mixed in night clubs. This is by far my favorite work that Billy Idol has ever done and, in my opinion, is VERY underrated. It is rare that you find an album that you can listen to from beginning to end. If you take Shock to the System off, this album flows from beginning to end without a hitch. One song or another always ends up in the mix just about every time I make a play list. Enjoy.

(this is not the album version, it is a mix)

Sarcasm Idol

George Bernard Shaw

'The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.'

'Beware of the man whose God is in the skies.'

'Alcohol is a very necessary article... It makes life bearable to millions of people who could not endure their existence if they were quite sober.'

'Democracy is a device that ensures that we shall be governed no better than we deserve.'

'If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance.'

Bass Lines That Changed The World II

As I thought of more bass lines that changed my world, I realized that most of them were played by women. Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth is in the first Bass Lines post. Here we have Tina Weymouth of The Talking Heads and Kim Deal of The Pixies (later of The Breeders, in which she does not play bass but is played by a chick, something Lopez, I think).

The Talking Heads - Psycho Killer


The Pixies - Gigantic


The Breeders - Cannonball
