St. Pats Jackdaw 2008

So if anyone read my previous very long picture Blog before this I said I would get into Jackdaw this time. I will admit I did have a good time at Club W. I was not expecting the Cover to be $10 that seems like a lot not that it is to see the band I wanted to see. Maybe it was just the green but man oh man where there a bunch of hoties there oh yeah and there where some sexy bartenders also. When I went to bet my first drink it was tough to get one. First of all there where lots of distractions like to sexy ladies to my right and left (ones to the left took the place of the guys they where with you weren't getting attention from the bar maids). There where really a lot of people at the bar and I felt this cute yeah I could tell she was sexy with out seeing her trying to get to the bar so I slide over and she wound up getting me a drink, well it was really the guys who wouldn't take money from her and then she wouldn't take money from me so that was cool, so thanks a lot that was really cool cause she saw I was really at the bar a long time. So Again thank you. Later when I went up it had thinned out some and wasn't as bad. Music wise I thought Jackdaw was pretty good, I only know some of there stuff. I will admit that these pictures may be dark not sure how they will look until after this is posted. But here they are:

It just dawned on me that with not knowing how they will look on here that I now have plenty of pictures up. I also saw two girls dancing with each other and that was kinda hot. They where all about dancing with each other. I also saw some guys do the same thing but it wasn't even the same. They do the hold each other around the neck and dance all over the place kinda crazy style where as the girls are more in there own little area. I had a great time and hope everyone had a great holiday.

I haven't gone in yet but I did see that this store is now open.

St Pats Parade 2008

First of all I wanted to say sorry again to Tony , I all ways forget to break out the camera when I run into people I could have gotten a cool picture of you with the horn and Megan to. I was kinda surprised by some of the hot ladies there who didn't have a lot of clothing on not sure how they stayed warm. Not sure how many pictures I will put up of the Parade but I'm guessing a ton here they are:

I do have to admit that a couple times I got distracted from the parade for a few reason. First of all you have people who are not in the thing walking in the street. Then you have people who where walking the opposite way. Then there are bunches of ladies walking the side walk so it is easy to get distracted.

This year instead of being down by North I wanted to get closer to Downtown. I decide that the church would make a cool looking backdrop. It would have been fun I think to be by one of the bars. I noticed that some bar Areas had the Baricades up as a way to kinda keep everyone together and maybe out of the street, is that new this year or was I just never down there before.

All in all I had a good time at the parade and even though it was cold it didn't feel as cold as it was. After the parade I went down to Club W to see Jackdaw and had a great time but that will be my next post. I warn that those pictures maybe very dark But we shall see what happens. Hope everyone had a great time and I hope to see some more pictures from the parade.

Happy Steak & Blow Job Day

So I was on Myspace and saw a bulletin from an (e:peep) and thought there was something I should comment on. Maybe it is that I'm single so I forget about this holiday but today is Steak and BJ Day.

You know the drill. Every 14th of February you get the chance to display your fondness for a significant other by showering her with gifts, flowers, dinner, shows and any other baubles that women find romantic. Every Valentines day you rack your brains for that one special, unique gift that will show your wife or girlfriend that you really do care for them more than any other. Now ladies, I'll let you in on a little secret; guys really don't enjoy this that much. Sure seeing that smile on your face when we get it right is priceless, but that smile is the result of weeks of blood, sweat and consideration. Another secret; guys feel left out. That's right, there's no special holiday for the ladies to show their appreciation for the men in their life. Men as a whole are either too proud or too embarrassed to admit it.

Which is why a new holiday has been created.

March 14th is now officially "Steak and Blowjob Day". Simple, effective and self explanatory, this holiday has been created so you ladies finally have a day to show your man how much you care for him.

No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town; the name of the holiday explains it all, just a steak and a BJ. Thats it. Finally, this twin pair of Valentine's Day and Steak and Blowjob Day will usher in a new age of love as men everywhere try THAT much harder in February to ensure a memorable March 14th!

The word is already beginning to spread, but as with any new idea, it needs a little push to start the ball rolling. So spread the word, and help bring love and peace to this crazy world. And, of course, steak and BJ's.




You can look up the holiday for your self but here is one link about it

Not sure how much the site has other then what I have listed up there. I hope everyone has a good holiday. I can't celebrate it by myself since I can't blow myself but if I could I guess I could do that holiday. But if I could then this would be a completely different post with pictures and video, of course I would need someone to take the pictures and if that was the case then why do my self. All kidding around I think this is a holiday that everyone should have a great time with. I wish I would have remembered so I could have gone to Fridays and asked a waitress and see if they kick me out. I seem to allways forget though.

I also want to wish everyone has a great weekend and do something nice for St. Pats even if it is just going to see A free movie at Sheas or getting drunk and naked in the middle of Delaware.

This Weekend SouthParkBlack

So I'm hoping that I can stay awake tonight since there is supposed to be a new South Park on tonight (yeah to the end of the writers strike). I'm guessing that South Park will address it in there crazy way in one of the new episode. That is followed By Lewis Black who also has a new show (Hi guests 27 currently). I'm not sure if it is stand up or if he has guests but I know he is funny and that should carry it.

So this weekend is St. Patrick's day. I go to the parade on Delaware and try not to die from the cold. With being sick I'm not sure that is a good idea. Well I feel good but still have a cough and feel sick at home. Then Jackdaw (man it has been a long time since I've seen them I keep missing them) is playing at club W. That would be fun, but I can't imagine how crowded it will be in there. Granted I have never been there but I'm guessing moving will be impossible. Maybe I'll go we shall see how I feel.

Saturday is going to be a lot of fun (in the words of Henry Rollins the best part is the anticapation and that may be better then the show). I'm going to see the monster truck show. They have some freestyle motorcross riders also. Not sure if watching them or seeing the trucks up close in the pit will be more fun. They have a 2nd show on sunday also.

On a side note I feel like I have less to say lately but maybe that is just me. I mean post wise or thoughts wise and not really comment wise. Or maybe it is just that I feel I don't have much meaningfull things to say.

BanditsSwarmStorm + Movies

So we set our clocks ahead and spring is supposed to be coming and we get all this snow it did really look pretty nice last night as I walked home (not all the way from downtown) it was allmost picturesque like I was in a painting. Getting good pictures of the snow at night is tough. If you use a flash it hits the snow and bounces back and if not then the pictures can look dark some other setting focus on the light source. Here are some of my winter adventure pictures.

The Bandits did win and it was a great game with a couple of fights. But it was weird that I couldn't yell really. I knew that if I did I could just get my self real sick again. See before my boss gave me time off I started to get sick and I could feel it in my throat first and then it spreed or at least I could feel it other places I'm still not 100% and know that but I'm a lot better. Before the game I had time to watch 2 completely different movies. One was kinda funny called Crank it was pretty good and was shot kinda weird but I liked it and the other was Babel there is really no good way to explain it other then these families are struck by tradgedy and they are all kinda interconnected with out giving any thing away but I thought it was pretty good.


I guess here are some random Bandits Vs. Swarm Photos.

Sleep

So I'm still sick and Hopefully will be better for Saturday nights Bandits game, I'll still go but can't chance yelling. The burn that was in my throat I don't really want to come back again. I'm not a big a sleep person but leaving work early yesterday to sleep all night and then not going in today and all most getting 24 hours worth (of course breaks from it so about 24 hours of rest) sure did feel good. I feel good now but I think a lot of that is from the medicine. I hope everyone has a great weekend. That being said the sleep really felt good and I think I will be sleeping some more soon again.

Crappy Renter

(as a side note 63 guests wow). I hate being sick I really do it is not fun at all. Plugged ears, Head, and chest and (now 72 guests) sore throat. It doesn't help that my place is kinda messy. It doesn't help that my stove has gas pilot lights. It doesn't help that I have stagnet air that just sits there but at least my place is warm. Then On top of that I have a mouse, well I have only seen one but my downstairs neighbor has seen and caught about 10 of them. No of them have gone into my traps at all (3) Maybe I don't have enough or have bad bait not really sure. (96 and 6 bots wow). But that being said I not hope to much with going on line and working and then I watch a couple hours of tv and go to bed or pass out. I am one lazy fucker when not at work I really am. I need sleep I need to clean, ah what to fucking do. Argh, Maybe sleep or maybe clean some more. Sometimes I really hate my life, not that I would ever do anything crazy.

Saturday

Well Saturday stared out with a trip to Target for a New Watch and to get Beowulf. I did watch it but so far the directors cut looks just like what I saw at the movies so I'm confused. When I stopped watching it I set up the Timer for George Carlin on HBO I got home from the Bandits game in time to catch the end of it. But I couldn't stay up for SNL. Why is that when I want to watch it I can't stay up for it. And when I'm up it is one I have seen or I have something else on at the same time.

I hadn't really eaten all day so I got a Burger Basket and Buffalo Bites at the game. Other then the Bandettes the Early part of the game was rough it really was. The wings got out to an early lead and wound up being a head like 6 to 1. The bandits though are tough and changed goalies and then came back and tied it up and then when on a head and Kinda ran away with the game I really had a great time, even though it didn't start out that way.


Here are some random Pictures from the game:

One thing that isn't clear really from these pictures is that for this game when Dave Played the Bag Pipes and they did all the intros that the lights where on. What happens most times is the lights go off you hear him play and then the spot light goes on him. Not sure what way I like better. The normal way is more dramatic but pictures do come out better this way.

Stats and Sabres

So on Saturday I'm going to see the Bandits game (season tickets) and so I'll take pictures so I decided to wait to download my Sabres pictures until after that game. I had a great time and got to see all kinds of rough housing, fights, people trying to fight, Peters gets a goal "the new Guy" gets two goals and an asisit. I also had a good time at the Buffet before the game. Hope they win tonight.

So (e:drew) wrote about his stats so I figured why not write about mine and see what it says about views and stuff. If I click on the stats it opens up a new page so I'll just go with what I have on my stats bar.
I have 958 Journals I can't believe I have written that many it doesn't seem right and I also have 312,182 views again that seems very high so that works out to about 325 views per journal. That doesn't mean anyone read what I had to say it just means they looked at it, or maybe they did a picture search and found my pictures. I have 721 comments that averages out to about .75 comments per journal. That being said that looks like I don't have very many comments but there where a lot of journals written before comments was a feature.

I forgot about the Tab feature in firefox in terms of most journals I'm #2 currently. That being said (e:paul) has more then twice the number of posts I do and it looks like it is close to 3 times as many there is a big gap there. In terms of most viewed again I'm second to Paul. But I'm so far behind it isn't even funny if you where to ad and round up me to 500,000 he would still have tipple the amount I have. I do lead the #1 spot in comments I have made I guess I have a lot of stuff to add to what others say. I have 721 comments received up top I said how low the average was and had an a reason for it, but over all I'm 13th there.

I guess my general point is that Stats don't lie. But that they can be used to prove the point of the person trying to prove a point. Here I wasn't really trying to prove or say anything really. But I think that when ever you see stats in an article or what ever you should understand that there are different ways of measuring them. There are also factors that if you don't know them could throw them off. For example (e:Paul) has a lot more Journals then I do and that would also explain why he is also so far ahead of me in views. Another factor in that is I am not an original on the site. I can remember sometimes Paul would have 3 journals that where unrelated to each other in the same day. So when ever you read stats you should believe them but also remember that if someone has an agenda they can make it so the stats make it look like one way when it isn't. Here is a great example if I have a Penny and I find a little bit of money I could give you some huge number of how much of a percent how much money I have then you say "Dude you are rich lets go out on the town" then I say "I think I just have enough for a candy bar". Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Oakland Marjiuna Colleger

I was going to post something that was going to be not stupid but something that seems like it doesn't matter or something but as soon as I saw this article I was like wow I have to post this. I can now say that maybe I should go back to school. I really don't want to but this would be a cool place to go and learn. Even though it might be risky for some legal reasons maybe if I did well enough in school I could stay in California and live there. This was on Yahoo.

Oakland school turns out pot club pros

By LISA LEFF, Associated Press Writer 43 minutes ago

OAKLAND, Calif. - You know you're in a different kind of college when a teaching assistant sets five marijuana plants down in the middle of a lab and no one blinks a bloodshot eye.


Welcome to Oaksterdam University, a new trade school where higher education takes on a whole new meaning.

The school prepares people for jobs in California's thriving medical marijuana industry. For $200 and the cost of two required textbooks, students learn how to cultivate and cook with cannabis, study which strains of pot are best for certain ailments, and are instructed in the legalities of a business that is against the law in the eyes of the federal government.

"My basic idea is to try to professionalize the industry and have it taken seriously as a real industry, just like beer and distilling hard alcohol," said Richard Lee, 45, an activist and pot-dispensary owner who founded the school in a downtown storefront last fall.

So far, 60 students have completed the two-day weekend course, which is sold out through May. At the end of the class, students are given a take-home test, with the highest scorer - make that "top scorer" - earning the title of class valedictorian.

Before getting to Horticulture 101, the hands-on highlight of Oaksterdam U, the 20 budding botanists, entrepreneurs and political activists at a recent weekend session sat politely through two law lectures and a visiting professor's history talk.

In the lab, Lee measured plant food into a plastic garbage can and explained how, with common sense, upgraded electrical outlets, a fan and an air filter, students can grow pot at home for fun, health, public service - or profit.

Lee explained to his students how to prune and harvest plants, handing the clipping shears to a woman who wasn't sure how close to the stalk to cut without damaging it. He offered his thoughts on which commercial nutrient preparations are best, as well as the advantages of hydroponics, or soil-free gardening.

During a discussion of neighbor relations, he warned against setting boobytraps to keep curious kids out of outdoor gardens.

Students gave various reasons for enrolling. Some said they were simply curious. Others said they wanted tips for growing their own weed, although judging from the questions, a few were ready for the graduate seminar Lee recently added to the curriculum.

Jeff Sanders, 52, said he has been buying medical marijuana since 2003, but wants to open a dispensary in the San Joaquin Valley because he doesn't like having to drive up to San Francisco and paying the markup.

"I see it as a good thing. You are giving back to the community," Sanders said.

Patrick O'Shaughnessy, 37, said he started smoking pot regularly for the first time about a year ago to treat his chronic migraines, depression and anxiety. After attending class, he said felt more confident about growing his own, which he wants to do because the dispensary he frequents often sells out of his favorite strain.

Oaksterdam U draws its name from the jokey nickname for a section of Oakland where some of California's earliest medical marijuana dispensaries took root. The nickname in turn was inspired by the city of Amsterdam, in Holland, where pot use is tolerated.

At one point, the Oaksterdam neighborhood had at least 15 clubs and coffee shops selling pot, a number that dwindled to four when the city started issuing permits and collecting taxes from them a few years ago.

California was the first of a dozen states that have legalized marijuana use for patients with a doctor's recommendation. Despite periodic raids by federal drug agents and the threat of prosecution, clubs and cooperatives where customers can buy the drug of their choice have proliferated; California has 300 to 400, according to advocacy groups.

Entry-level workers are paid a little more than minimum wage, while "bud tenders," can make over $50,000 a year, and owners and top managers more than $100,000, Lee said. But there's also a certain amount of risk - and not just financial, but legal.

Michael Chapman, an assistant agent in charge with the Drug Enforcement Agency's San Francisco office, said authorities are aware of Oaksterdam U and don't see any reason to shut it down. Talking about marijuana is not illegal, and while a small amount of pot is kept on the premises, the DEA tries "to concentrate our case work on the most significant violators," he said.

Still, Chapman said he doesn't like Lee's effort to wrap cannabis education in a cap and gown.

"I think they are sending the wrong message out to the community and it's something that could only facilitate criminal behavior," he said.



I just thought of something else. Does anyone know if for the medical stuff you can cross pollenate. The reason I wonder is that there are weeds that (from what I heard) have been crosspollenated so they kinda taste like apple or peach as in Peach Melba. I wonder where I could find that on line, maybe for fun I should look that up. If the DEA raids me more looking stuff up you'll know when I'm not online for two weeks. I wonder when the Medical stuff will go to the supreme court. It seems like if a state says it is legal the feds can't say it is illegal that violates the Constituiton or maybe if it is allready that way then the states can't make it legal. If it ever goes or goes again (more research for if I ever have the free time) I hope the states win.
