13.12 13:07 If I'd known then what I knew now, I would have just gone to Schmelz, paid for the rim (and new tire) IMMEDIATELY and saved myself a few more other stories I'm sure I'll be rereading soon. (UPDATE: I still haven't eaten the chocolate-covered cherries.)
12.12 15:36 Hey remember 20 year old Barq's ads?
"I can see! I can see!"
"No - but it got dem bite to it tho!"
11.12 23:20 I think I've said this every year since the separation but it's way less fun being a giant baby about being sick when there's no audience

10.12 15:17 Nearly a year on, Andrew Ridgeley finally goes in depth about George Michael. Christmas #1s are pretty lame since singing competitions determined them but I'll root for Wham! to finally hit #1 this year (Daily Mail)

Oh man JACKPOT...thank you Rebecca and Karate Break!
9.12 17:42 Video - Me: Why DON'T I have a turntable in the kitchen?
Me, later, with everything in the kitchen covered in a fine layer of flour and/or flour paste: Oh, right
9.12 16:50 
OK yes it's been years since I made some cookies but also THIS is why the flour lives in the freezer

Soon to be a chilito virgin no more

7.12 14:26 Oh, OK, it's a website. Take that, Mason! Also, my entire Spotify year was apparently devoted to Allison and Krista which is ... probably not very surprising - even more embarrassing screen grabs in the comments
7.12 12:25 Wow, that's....kind of depressing? Also, Facebook is really digging deep today...
6.12 23:48

I mulched the leaves!

Well, most of the leaves.

Well, enough of the leaves.

It can snow now.
2.12 17:32 I enjoy The Drug Budget and this post. NO DISQUALIFICATION
1.12 15:14 Oh shit son (5 photos with Adri Mehra)
1.12 14:19 Shirtless metal gods play amongst racks of big black discs AND it's over in time for you to still hoof it to the midnight anime - who are you to pass by?
1.12 10:17 I'm such a sucker for sharing these things

It's been a while since I properly made some cookies... that's gonna change VERY soon.
27.11 17:01 
ATTENTION, CALIFORNIA FRIENDS: Looking like I'll be "home" for the holiday. Details to come
26.11 23:21 
More fallout from the A Perfect Circle show: It called to mind THIS song, but I couldn't remember anything except RIFFS and you can't Google a riff (or you probably can and I don't know how). I eventually remembered like three words of lyrics and amazingly found it. I probably could have just listened to all the Tool albums (which I clearly never did in the '90s) but honestly I didn't even remember with certainty that it was Tool. This probably says a lot about my musical tastes (cf. The KZiM Archives) back then - Tool definitely warn't very "techno." But hey I only slept on it for, what, 14 years (EDIT: 24 years. Shit) (YouTube: Tool - Sober)
26.11 14:51 Two games in a row on the big screen... Regular cameraman must have the game off but nice to know this hat works on ALL cameramen
25.11 23:16 Video - Ohhh NOW I get it
25.11 19:31 
Wow, there's a "strictly prohibited" sign literally every two feet. Who knew these guys were such fascists? Stay tuned for my Instagrams!
24.11 21:05 
THE FAMOUS CRZ: Every year I put on the Timberwolves Santa hat and every year it's cameraman catnip - guaranteeing I show up on the big screen when I'm not wanting to and giving him and the entire arena a good SMH - doesn't help when we're down like 20 points when it happens

(Wonder if they'll come up with one with the new logo and if I'll be able to afford it)
24.11 14:58 OK, I also can't believe it's me asking this question, anyone interested in going to the A Perfect Circle show at the X tomorrow with me? Cheapest tickets are $37, but through the magic of TicketMaster it becomes a $61.16 ticket, so HELL no. I'm assuming I could just show up and buy something at the box office to get in while avoiding all the fees. (There appear to be many $37 tickets still for sale.)

Afterward, we could hit Brit's Pub for the Pop-up Transmission if we found we needed to return to the 1980s ;-)

(Alternately, if you suddenly find you have a +1 you need filled, we could haggle)

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm gonna have literally 20 pounds of leftovers and I haven't even made a green been casserole yet. If you're reading this, you better not be hungry today. Place your delivery order now!
23.11 14:41 Ah, how appropriate this Thanksgiving. Thanks mate for changing my life in countless ways I'm still figuring out...
22.11 22:12 I'm here! (but you should still come anyway) (Transmission: Heat Wave)
22.11 16:13 
Also, on Monday I finally gave in and gave up, removing 13 wristbands going back to Halloween.

I'm sure I'd been there before, primarily from following Arzu there for Christmas Staraoke. I didn't join Foursquare until 2009, and the first Foursquare check-in to the Triple Rock Social Club I have logged was from July 15, 2011, when Kim and I teamed up with Ellie, Arzu and Dave for a trivia contest. (We didn't win because we shouted down one of Dave's correct answers.)

My next three check-ins were for the short-lived run of Sunday night Staraoke in the old bar.

My fifth check-in was for Nightosaur's second album "Spaceaxers" release - we played Blingo in the old bar, missing Red Desert and STNNNG but catching Gospel Gossip and (of course) Nightosaur. I posted my band pics to Twitpic back then.

I'm not sure if I really stopped going out until my separation but the next check-in I found was the night Kim broke up with me, by total coincidence. It couldn't have been more timely, a lifesaving NOTHER Nightosaur show, this time a free gig brought to us by Newcastle and featuring METZ.

Now I can use my archived lifestream to rattle off the shows (although I'm sure I'm missing a few):

The Triple Rock was 1.9 to 2.1 miles from my house, depending on which way I walked and how many Pokemon I chased. When I needed an excuse to get some exercise, usually there was a show, more often than not featuring bands with friends in them, or bands featuring crushes I had/have. And I could usually score a chair so that I'd be well rested for the walk/stagger home.

It's sad that this place is going just when I felt I was getting used to it.

Consensus: pretty good for non-chocolate (I know it says "chocolate candies" on the package...they ain't)
21.11 15:00 Still true
21.11 13:54 
So if I push the green button... will my life be over?
21.11 01:16 MOUSE UPDATE: Mouse #3, the stupid smart mouse, brazenly knocked my ice pick off the kitchen counter while I was out, just to let me know it was still around, even if it wasn't leaving all kinds of tiny poops behind any more. Although it is smart and changing up tactics, I have settled on a course of stubbornly redefining insanity by applying fresh peanut butter to the usual trap and hoping that that finally reels one in tonight. Also, I plan to be out cold on Alka Seltzer Plus Night Cold Formula so I'll have no idea if it works until I am ready to go to work. STAY TUNED TO THIS [SOCIAL] NETWORK FOR FURTHER UPDATES
20.11 02:29 also known as "(not) catching up to Sydney"
