Merry Christmas kids

Happy holidays everyone. I hope you all had a good holiday. I wound up driving down to Springfield (Illinois, not Missouri btw) to see my family who I haven't seen in almost 5 years. It was really good to see everyone, especially my Grandma who rules. Caught up with alot of folks, ate alot, drove alot. I got some really good presents too; Sara got me some good cologne and some sweet azz Born shoes, seasons 1 and 2 of the Office and some fuzzy slipper socks (which may be gay, but I don't care, they're warm and fuzzy). I also got a Roku Soundbridge M1001 which is probably one of the coolest devices I've owned in a long time. Its a network media player that uses wifi to connect to the internet (for internet radio) and which will access and stream music from your computer with no compression or loss. Heres a photo of it, I'll get a shot of it in action with my stereo which I finally got to set up.
If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

I has a bucket

Thanks to Macho (emacho.org) for this one. I don't know why, but I seriously laughed my ass off when I saw it.

Man Laws

I'm not usually into this kind of shit, but I thought this was pretty funny. Number 10 sums up how Sara and I actually got together (from Entensity.net).

Man Laws

1: Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

2: It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following Circumstances:

(a) When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
(b) The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her Blouse.
(c) After wrecking your boss's car.
(d) When she is using her teeth.

3: Any Man who brings a camera to a bachelor party may be legally killed and eaten by his buddies.

4: Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

5: If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever unless you actually marry her.

6: Moaning about the brand of free beer in a buddy's fridge is forbidden. However complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

7: No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your buddy's birthday is strictly optional. At that point, you must celebrate at a strip bar of the birthday boy's choice.

8: On a road trip, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.

9: When stumbling upon other guys watching a sporting event, you may ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

10: You may flatulate in front of a woman only after you have brought her to climax. If you trap her head under the covers for the purpose of flatulent entertainment, she's officially your girlfriend.

11: It is permissible to drink a fruity alcohol drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach ... and it's delivered by a topless model and only when it's free.

12: Only in situations of moral and/or physical peril are you allowed to kick another guy in the nuts.

13: Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.

14: Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Ever. Issue closed.

15: If a man's fly is down, that's his problem, you didn't see anything.

16: Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports watchers.

17: A man in the company of a hot, suggestively dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.

18: Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both, that's just greedy.

19: If you compliment a guy on his six-pack, you'd better be talking about his choice of beer.

20: Never join your girlfriend or wife in discussing a friend of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

21: Phrases that may NOT be uttered to another man While lifting weights:

a) Yeah, Baby, Push it!
b) C'mon, give me one more! Harder!
c) Another set and we can hit the showers!

22: Never talk to a man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: i.e., both urinating, both waiting In line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

23: Never allow a telephone conversation with a woman to go on longer than you are able to have sex with her. Keep a stopwatch by the phone. Hang up if necessary.

24:The morning after you and a girl who was formerly "just a friend" have carnal, drunken monkey sex, the fact that you're feeling weird and guilty is no reason for you not to nail each other again before the discussion occurs about what a big mistake it was.

25: It is acceptable for you to drive her car. It is not acceptable for her to drive yours.

26: Thou shalt not buy a car in the colors of brown, pink, lime green, orange or sky blue.

27: The girl who replies to the question "What do you want for Christmas?" with "If you loved me, you'd know what I want!" gets an Xbox. End of story.

28: There is no reason for guys to watch Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever.

29: We've all heard about people having guts or balls, but do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition of each is listed below:

"GUTS" is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to say, "are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?"

"BALLS" is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, "You're next!

Merry Christmas to me

So I've been keeping my eye out for a new semi hollowbody electric for the last 6 months or so. I tried to watch ebay and craigslist for any suitable gibson es-335's, ibanez as200's and heritages I could find. I let 3 or 4 really good deals slip through my fingers by not acting fast enough, so I jumped on this baby when I could. Its a 2006 (big change from my 72's gibson) Heritage H-535, flamed maple top and back, Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups, tone pros bridge, ect. It shipped out today, so I'll update you when I get my dirty paws on it. Here's some pics to tide you over...

I apologize...

for neglecting my duties to the blogosphere. I've been really busy with the new job (which is going well so far) and running in and out of town alot lately. I had a good thanksgiving with Sara and her family in Bismarck. I'm finally getting used to being around so many kids for extended periods of time, so that helps. Not much else is really new, I hear Squez took off for New Mexico (which is better than "old" Mexico from what I hear) recently. We all wish him luck with his new job at BTI (and finding a place to live, since he didn't take care of that before he left apparently).

In honor of his departure from the good side of the mason-dixon line, I will be posting the infamous Squez - Holiday edition picture from the old SBS site. I know I'm behind but I will start with one of the classics; turkey hat squez. Turkey Hat Squez was born out of a dark period in my life. I really felt the need to capture Squez in his natural environment (with a turkey hat obviously) in order to satisfy my own conceptual creativity. To me it screams "I'm gay for you, rub me down with stuffing and spank my heiny" but does so with extreme class. I give you......Turkey Hat Squez.
