Not for the faint of heart

There is a lot of crap TV out there, so whenever anything good is found I tend to get obsessed with it for awhile. Case and point, my 2 year obsession with the Office. I've recently been watching "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia". It is a hilarious show, but not for everyone, and definitely not for the faint of heart. It often goes over the line, and then keeps going until you think it's over and it continues going over the line. Even with that said, I still watch it because it is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen and here is a little clip I enjoy a great deal.

Odd news

I read the news. In that news I sometimes come across odd and disturbing articles. Today, I found an article showing evidence that gnomes are turning to facism in order to be heard. For all of you who love gnomes, this is very disturbing and should not be taken lightly. Watch them closely.

Also in odd news, a man is viciously attacked by birds or a bird, i don't really remember. But read it.

By the beard of Zues

I did one of my favorite things the other day. I wore a new pair of socks. It is one of those simple pleasures in my life, new socks just feel so good on my feet and they make me a happier person. If only I could wear new socks everyday...and I just realized that life with no socks would suck. Thank the heavens for socks!

Anyway, it got me thinking about the simple pleasures I enjoy in life and I wanted to share some of those:

-eating breakfast for dinner
-playing in water when it's hot as sin outside
-annoying other people by chewing my gum too loud
-eating fruit right off the tree/plant/bush
-laying on the tramp at night
-rolling down the windows
-sounding like darth vader by talking into a fan
-hot rod
-reading a book on a rainy day
-getting a call from work saying you don't have to come in today
-major league chew bubble gum
-watching people that don't know you're watching them
-girls that smell good
-singing along to my music while driving
-getting a tan from mowing lawns
-late night movies

The list goes on. Life is good.

The Big City

So Bon Iver was off the hook. The music was amazing, I loved hearing Bon Iver live, he was amazing. Tons of friends there made it a USU reunion. Also, the people watching was the best you could ever hope for since there were about 10,000 people packed into the Gallivan Center and most of them were weird as shi. So what I'm trying to say is that if you weren't there, you should have been.
The fun continued even outside the concert confines and we had a few choice meetings with the crazies in the streets of the big city.

Crazy #1- Nasty Santa
This old guy was outta control. He had a nice white beard, but that was the only nice thing about his appearance. He had no shirt on, and smelled like a garbage can. As we passed by him on our way to the concert he said everyone wanted him to "do Michael Jackson" and asked me what his favorite song was. I responded with Smooth Criminal and he said "that one sucks, I wanna sing dark side of the moon!" I gave him a questioning look and moved on...I never realized Micheal Jackson was the singer of Pink Floyd.

Crazy #2- Fire Man
Hunger overtook us post-concert, so we sat on the grass outside Wendy's and stuffed our faces. It took literally 30 seconds until a crazy came up and started talking to us. He was riding a bike on his way home from the "fire station". He said he was currently going to fire fighter school and continued to talk to us the entire time we were eating about everything from fires, to the Jazz, to USU athletics, to his amazing abilities as a quarterback, and on to who knows what. As we departed ways, he rode off on his old Wal-Mart bike and said, "maybe I should go get my car so I can get some Wendy's too." Good luck living that dream fire man, good luck.

Crazy #3- The Sellsman
While talking to fire man, a fidgetting black man carrying a big paper bag walks into our circle and informs us that he is trying to sell a lighter. He only wanted 2 bucks so he could save up for a six-pack. Such a worthy goal. He pulled the lighter out, and spent a few seconds trying to get it to work, it looked like it was pretty well used. We were all pretty interested, but unfortunately we only had "plastic" so we couldn't buy it from him. As soon as he found out we didn't have cash he left without a word to find his next customer.

Crazy#4- Snowboarder #1
We saw this guy and his buddy walking towards us through the parking lot as we were saying our goodbyes in the Wendy's parking lot. But before we could all jet to our cars he asked if I had a cigarette, unfortunately I don't smoke, so I couldn't help. I'm pretty sure he was on some serious drugs/meds and began to inform me that he used to be the best snowboarder in the world, and the he could effing do a mctwist despite what the effing effers thought. Just cause he was drunk the effers thought he couldn't do effing shi, but they were wrong he could do a effing mctwist off a jump not a halfpipe. I told him he should get back up there and show them. He colcuded with some more explitives and excuses, but he finally left after a nice fist bump....what a night in the big city, slc.

Gypsy Time

Everything is Illuminated is an awesome movie. Ever since I watched it this last weekend, I've been listening to gypsy music. I don't know how to put videos up on my blog, but here is a LINK to a sweet gypsy music video. Watch it, I promise you won't be disappointed.

And jsyk if I had to choose between purple or pink I'd choose either.

Twilight this!

Twilight Summer Concert Series:
July 9 - Bon Iver/Jenny Lewis
July 16- The Black Keys/Human Highway
July 23- M. Ward/Land of talk
July 30- Sonic Youth/Awesome Color
August 6- Q-Tip/B.o.B.
August 13- Toots and the Maytals/N.A.S.A.
August 20- Iron & Wine/Okkervil River
August 27- Robert Randolph and the Family Band/Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears

Don't be fooled by the name similar to a lame movie/book, these are all free concerts at the Gallivan Center in SLC and they are dope!

In fact, I'm pretty sure it's the best thing that has ever happened to my life. Last year I saw Andrew Bird and Nada Surf there for free...two of the best nights of my life, so I can only imagine what it's going to be like to see Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, and M. Ward in the same summer.

Everyone should come to all of these, even if you don't know the bands playing the people watching is excellent at these things. Peace.
