Upcoming Hooligan Holidaze:

April Fool's Day. Know a fool? Throw a brick at 'em!

Rhody sent this to me back in February... Twisted Evil



So there's the official placard LOL.

Next up is my personal favorite holiday, 4/20. Once again this year we're celebrating with Tequila, last year's KAH Blanco was the bomb, as well as some Tangerine Romulan. After we killed the bottle last year, we posed for this shot. Yup, we're badass. Even in pigtails. We don't need no stinkin' badges...



P.S. Ignore that cigarette in my mouth. I quit smoking last June. It'll be 9 months on March 30th.

It's Good To Be The king

Holy shit, Bastage. Brilliant to see you posting. How are things? How's the missus? How's your back these days?

Release a brick, toss a brick. It's all good either way.

Hey dude. On year 8 of my disability. Narcotics stopped working, as far as I can tell, in 2014. I could have increased the dosage many times but decided to see if I could do without them. So I started titrating the dose down on the Fentanyl patch. From 50mg/hr for a month, then 25mg/hr for a month then 12.5mg per hour, then nothing. Guess what? No withdrawal at all. Proves that there are no good narcs for long term pain. Started on a supplement regiment designed to help with inflammation and nerve repair. Switched to organic food in 2001 and by 2013 Wendy and I lost over 100lbs each. That helped with the pain some. Other than that, for the past couple of years I've been getting really good medical grade cannabis and that is what keeps most of the pain away. Having aced the plastic bass in Rockband on the XBox, Wendy decided she wanted to learn bass guitar. I sold two of my axes and got her a bass and an amp. She's getting pretty good too. Using another XBox program called Rocksmith 2014. Teaches lead, rhythm and bass. Playing music distracts me so much. Played for the first year sitting in a chair and now able to stand for about 30 minutes while playing. Now here's the real funny thing, when I'm singing, I feel no pain at all. I mean it just goes away. I don't understand the mechanism of distraction that the singing provides but I wish I could bottle it and hand it our for free to everyone suffering from chronic pain. I just try to put on a happy face most of the time. Most people that I interact with probably have no idea how much nerve damage I have. I've learned how to live with it. And I'm getting stronger. In 2012, Wendy started some seeds in the house, when it came time to plant she had no idea where to start. It got me out of bed. The first year I sat in a chair to turn over the soil to plant. Now I can stand up and work in 15 to 20 minute spurts before the pain makes me sit for 30 minutes. Everything seems to take longer but I've adjusted. I miss working and lots of days I get bored as hell just sitting here, especially in the winter, but like I said as more time passes, the more I adapt. Thanks for asking. Smile

In 2014 on Halloween for our 9th wedding anniversary we got dressed as pirates and went to see a local band. I played with the keyboard player and guitar player over 20 years ago, in fact it was the last band I was in. Once they found out I was coming, they begged me to get up and sing a song with them. So I did. It was the most fun I've had in such a long time. If I could stand up longer, I think I'd get back into the music biz. Hey a guy can dream can't he? LOL

Nice to see you floating around here again!


Yes, that "Lazarus" video is brutal. More so, of course, when you consider that he knew his days were numbered when he shot it. Reminds me of the infamous Yul Brynner smoking ad, which he shot before his death, but only let it air after his death:

Your attitude is inspirational, Bastage. You certainly haven't had it easy, and yet you've found happiness in life. That's cool.

And, yes, those videos hit hard.

Why is it that in every single one of these videos some idiot always manages to fumble the camera at the best part?

Also on an unrelated note:



Just found that gem

To be fair, in the case of that video, the fumbling was due to the "Oh, shit!" reaction when the projectile launches straight up. That was why I thought it was so funny -- the cameraperson may be laughing, but he is still running for his life.

Really true story:

My father tells the tale from his childhood when he and some friends got a hold of a bow & arrows and had the bright idea to go out into a field, shoot the arrows straight into the air, and dodge them when they came down. This worked fine until one of them really pulled back on the string and managed to get the arrow high enough that they all lost sight of it. They looked at each other for a second, then all took off running in opposite directions, finally hitting the dirt and covering their heads. The arrow (fortunately) ended up hitting the ground harmlessly between them. After it hit, one of dad's friends got up, looked at the others, and said:

"What thoughts."
