Mega Music Monday #2: Rise

Yo! It's Mega Music Monday (the 2nd one!!!) This week, the song I'm highlighting is "Rise" by Pantera. I. Love. Pantera. They have some of the angriest music I've ever heard (example: 5 Minutes Alone). And they have, arguably, one of the better guitarists ever in Dimebag Darrel (RIP.......) This song is off their album "Vulgar Display of Power," which in my opinion has one of the most epic album covers ever (it's a guy getting punched in the face REALLLLY hard). All of their stuff sounds so raw, especially the vocals. So, here is "Rise" by Pantera.

P.S. Feel free to suggest some music! I'm always looking for something new to put on my iPod!

The Whirlpool Club

Herro, errybody! I hope all of you enjoyed your weekend. I know I did! Especially today. Today. Was. EPICCCCCC! Pepe, my friend "Dr. Love" and I went to the pool. Yes, I realize it's nearly February. But it's an indoor pool at the rec center here in Brunswick. So, we were swimming around for like an hour or so, having some good old American "Man Talk." Then we went into the whirlpool. This was absoultely amazing! But not as amazing as the sauna! Unfortanetly, the sauna is located in the locker room. And you know what that means: Wrinkly, pruney, naked old men! Mmmmmmm, my favorite (NOT). I went in feeling kind of crappy, but walked out a rejuvinated person! It felt great.
Imagine seeing this guy naked. Right in front of you......
So, Dr. Love and I had an idea. We should get a pizza, drive behind the school, and eat it! And that is exactly what we did. And it was fan-freakin-tastic. Then we drove around, blasting music full blast. Pepe was driving 85 in a 45, I'm in the back cowering for my life. Eventually, the Doctor and I just started shouting obscenities out of the window in the hope's Pepe would get arrested. It didn't work. But, eventually, I went home, smelling of chlorine and 5 dollar pizza. And oh what a wonderful scent it was! So, what are some fun times you've had with your friends?

¡Los Cavs, y Por Qué se Chupan!

Hey everybody! Not in the best of moods today (I failed my driver's test again). But, I figured a good way for me to feel better, is to go on a semi-rant. So I figured I'd talk about my beloved Cleveland Cavaliers. Yes, I am a Cavs fan. In fact, I love all Cleveland sports. Especially the Browns. But, I'm getting off topic. Being a Cleveland sports fan, I'm used to my teams being complete crap (and watching the Yankees buy championships.....) But, the Cavs have reached a new level of failure. As of last night, the Cavs have lost 19 straight games, and 25 of 26 overall. This, my friends, is absolutely craptastic! I do have some reasons as to why, though.

Ooooooo yah. Losing is delicous.
 First off, the amount of injuries suck. I swear, first we lose LeDouche, and now we have to fill our roster with a bunch of D-League scrubs! No wonder we can't win a game!

Secondly, LeBron. Way to be a complete jerk. I don't care that he left. I care HOW he left. Did you really need to hold us captive for 7 years, just to rip our hearts out and national television. You know what, LeBron is right. Karma's a bitch. So I'll just sit back and wait for his ACL to explode.

Lastly, we're Cleveland. I don't know what it is! The Drive,The Fumble, the 96 World Series (or whatever year it was). The Sports God's have not blessed us with good sports luck. I have one hope for this city. That by the time my dad dies, he get's to see at least one Cleveland championship. But, I guess for now we'll have to settle for the 1st pick in the Draft. Again......

Facebook: Chronicles of Our Lives

Hey everybody, short post again today (I'm up to my neck in work). I just thought I'd share with all of you my feelings about Facebook. I have a Facebook, and I love having one. It's a good way to keep in touch with people, which I'm sure I will value dearly once I go away to college. But, their are a few things about Facebook, or more, the people ON Facebook, that tend to irk me.

For starters, these people that make EVERY STATUS about one person. Example:"With the boyfriend,  I love him sooooooooooo much. 6/30.2010 forever!!!!!!!! I love you *insert name here* <3<3<3<3<3<3."
It's like, great, you love your boyfriend. We get it, don't remind us every 30 minutes, because a majority of us couldn't care less.

Secondly, these idiots who click on those things such as "See Who's Been Stalking You On Facebook!!!!!" These things never, and will never work. I mean, come on. The first time, I can understand maybe clicking on it. But when it becomes a daily occurence, it's ridiculous. You just blow up everybody's news feed. Stop it.

And, last but not least, are viruses on Facebook. Look, if an amazingly "promiscuous" (for lack of more appropriate terms) messages you on Facebook saying she wants to hook up with you, it's fake. Plain and simple. If they tell you to go to a website, it's a virus. Period. But, I still find idiots who go to those sites, their accounts get hacked, and I get 8976 messages from them saying "I Can't Believe u Let urself In this pic!!!" It's dumb, and it needs to stop.

So, I guess that wasn't too short. But, I  made my point. So, what are some things about Facebook that get on your nerves?

State of the Union: My Opinion

Hey everybody! Just a short post today, I've got a lot of work to do. So yesterday, President Obama gave his State of the Union Address. I personally dislike Obama. I believe he is driving us towards socialism (but that's another post for another day....) I only watched a little bit of it, because I can only stomach so much crap before I puke. But from what I did hear, I don't think anything is going to change. I think we need to focus on bringing jobs back to America, and taking care of the national debt. That's my opinion on what was said. I just have one more thing to say. Is it just me, or did Speaker of the House John Boehner look really uncomfortable? He did not seem like he wanted to be there. Maybe he just can't stomach all the crap Obama was spewing. O well.
That's all I have to say for today, let me know what you thought of the speech.

P.S. Give me some ideas of what to blog about! I desperately need them!

Mega Music Monday #1; Stoopid

Hello everybody! I've decided that every Monday will be Mega Music Monday. Why? Because I like music, that's why! On Mega Music Monday, I will post a song, and give a short description of the song, band, etc. This is because I like broadening people's music horizon. So today, I give you "Stoopid," by the band Snot.

Snot is a band from the late 90's, who played a great combination of nu metal/ funk metal. They gained fame on the West Coast, and released their first album, "Get Some" in 1997. The song "Stoopid" is the first (and possibly only, idk) single of the album. It deals with why racism and discriminatino are "stupid." The band had much success, and went to work on their second album. However, on 12/11/1998, lead singer Lynn Strait was killed in a car accident. The band put out the unfinished album, "Strait Up" in 2000, using guest vocalists such as Serj Tankian and Johnathan Davis. They have since disbanded, and gotten back together under the new name "Tons."

So, that's all I have to say. Hope you guys like the song, feedback is appreciated!

Headphone Hell

Ello, mates! I was sitting on the couch, watching the Packers (unfortanetly) woop the Bears, wondering  what I was going to post about. Maybe stupid people on Facebook, maybe some weird memory of mine, maybe something music related. Then it came to me; I should talk about the curse that has been layed upon me. The very bane of my existence:

HEADPHONE HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is to say, I've apparently been cursed by the music god's with an endless stream of crappy earbuds/headphones. And it's very frustrating. My problem first started with the iPod headphones I got with my iPod Touch 3G about a year ago. They were fine, they served the purpose they were set out to do. But one day, the right side just went dead. And this was fine, the left side still worked. Until one day in study hall it just died. Their is no more of a depressing moment in my normal day than when I have to turn my  music off. And this killed me. What was I supposed to do?

Well, I just bought another pair. They were about $3. And they were pretty good. Until they died, 2 weeks later. So I bought another pair, which died 2 weeks later. Now I'm mad. Why the hell do my earbuds keep dying? What could I have possibly done to deserve this? So, for the next 3 weeks, I was forced to use these crappy headphones I got from school. They didn't break on me (yet), and eventually I bought another pair of earbuds. Noise-canceling earbuds, in fact. Just what I needed. I also bought a pair of DJ-style headphones for $5. And everything was going great. For about 4 weeks. The headphones went first (stupid eco-friendly piece of junk) and then my earbuds died.

So now, I've resorted to using my mom's old earbuds. They still work, a year after she bought them. But I want my own pair. So, I ask you good people of my blog, what are some good earbuds/headphones to buy?

We Have Nothing to Fear but Fear......and Ducks?

Wazzup ya'll? Sorry I didn't post yesterday (I was preparing to take my driver's exam, which I failed). But not by that much, though. Only 5 points. So hopefully when I take it agian nex week, I'll pass it. But my driver's test made me remember my irrational fear of failing. Yes, I said it; I'm actually afraid of failing. Now, some of you may be saying "can you really be afraid of failing?" And my answer is yes. In fact, their is an actual term for it. Atychiphobia- Fear of failure (not that I can actually pronounce that). It's actually really bad. It made me freak out while I was taking my driver's test, it makes me afraid to fail tests, and it's probably one of the reasons why I have problem's asking out girls (but that's another topic for another day).

Their are many different types of phobias. Claustraphobia, the fear of enclosed spaces. Hydrophobia, the fear of water. Arachnaphobia, the fear of spiders. And my personal favorite, anatidaephobia-the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you. And a good majority of these fears are irrational (I know mine is).

anatidaephobia-the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you

My point being, I know my fear is irrational; So what if I fail a test, it's not the end of the world. But that's not how I feel at the time. I'm sure someday, I'll get over this fear (probably when I'm in college or something). But for now it sucks. If anybody can help me, it'd be greatly appreciated. But for now, I leave you with this question. What are some of your phobias?

The Most Happiest Day of My Life

Hello, everybody! Nothing interesting happenned to me today (or yesterday, for that matter). I wasn't even planning on posting today. But then a thought occurred to me. "What if I tell them about the happiest day of my life?" Ehhhhh, I don't think it's a bad topic, in fact it might be somewhat interesting. So, hear I go.

November 29th. 2010. A normal day, I just woke up, did whatever it is I usually do. At about 3 in the afternoon, I went on the computer. I don't remember how, but I ended up on the band "System of a Down's" website. For those of you who don't know, SOAD is a metal band from California who are known for their heavily political lyrics, and for being completely awesome. I <3 System of a Down, they are my favorite band. I have every song they've ever made on my iPod. However, SOAD has been on an "indefinite hiatus" since they released their last album "Hypnotize" in 2005.
From left to right: John, Darron, Serj, and Shavo. The most talented collection of
musicians to have ever blessed my ears.
Now, I wasn't expecting anything special. But I was about to recieve the best news I think I've ever recieved. The website said, and I quote, "We are excited to announce that System will be playing some dates together in 2011." My heart dropped. "SOAD is back?!?!?!?!?!?!? OH MY GOD, THANK YOU!!!!!" I dropped to my knees and thanked the heavens for this gift. If they decide to make a new album, I seriously might just pass out.
I just felt like sharing this with you guys. So, what is the happiest moment of your life?

Yabba Dabba DON'T!

Hey everybody! A few weeks ago, Winston, Mumbufu and I had a conversation with the German (he wasn't sitting at our table at this time, but it was at lunch) about trucks. Mumbufu and I both want a truck. We probably won't be able to afford one yet, but I know in my heart someday I will. Either a Ford-F150 or a Chevy Silverado (I don't know much about cars/trucks. I just know those 2 look awesome). So we're having this discussion, when the German pops in. He says "Hey, you guys ever heard of the Ford Raptor?" This to me was a signal of a bad truck. Why would you name and automobile after a dinosaur? Would you drive a Ford Triceratops, or a Volkswagon Leopleradon? I know I wouldn't.




  This isn't even the worst part. Then he said, "It can't haul a load, but it looks cool!" NO! NO NO NO NO NO!!!! YOU DON'T BUY A TRUCK IF IT CAN'T HAUL A FREAKIN LOAD! WHAT KIND OF CRAP WOULD THAT BE! So obviously, the German isn't a very smart person, to say the least. I'd like to hear your opinions on this topic. And if you want to reccommend a truck to me, I'd sure as hell appreciate it!

Conspiracy Theories

Hello, everybody! Today was the beginning of the new semester at Brunswick High School. Unfortanetly, McBags O'Toole and Apollo are no longer part of my lunch. However, I've found (somewhat) suitable replacements, my friend "Mo-Reese" (It's a girl, despite the manly name) and "the German." So, hopefully something interesting happens at somepoint, because nothing interesting happenned today.

Since nothing happenned today, I figured I'd talk about Mumbufu and his conspiracy theory. As we all know, the rappers Tupac and Biggie Smalls were both shot and killed in the 1990's. However, Mumbufu says they aren't dead. He proposed this theory. Neither Biggie Smalls or Tupac are dead. In fact, they are both very much alive, and living in Encino, California (yes, that's where Patchy the Pirate lives). They are joined there by Elivis Pressley and Michael Jackson. Not only are Biggie and Tupac alive, but they are now friends, through the counselling of.......wait for it.........Mr. Freakin Rogers!

Some random house in Encino, California. Maybe Biggie and Tupac are there....

So, needless to say, this is an interesting (and obviously stupid) theory. I'm sure somebody has something that's even more farfetched than this one! So, good people of the blogging community, I ask you:

What are some of your crazy conspiracy theories???

What Happened Last Night???

Hello! I hope all of you are enjoying MLK Day (I know I am). I have a story to tell you all, of what I did last night with a few of my friends. So, here I go.

So last night, I was just sitting here at my computer, doing absolutely nothing. Until Mumbufu calls me and says "Hey, you want to go sledding with me?" I, of course, said yes. So Mumbufu, my freind "Pepe" and I drove up to Hinkley Hills. While climbing up this huge hill with our sleds, we find some of our friends, who apparently went sledding, too. So, we were all sledding together. They left, and we decided to do what is called a train (we grabbed eachothers sleds and went down the hill). We were goin down, and we made a SHARP right turn. Their was a group of about 10 people walking up this side of the hill (which is dumb, since it was not the side to walk up). We took them all out, and I crashed into a tree. I just layed there, laughing for a good 5 minutes. We apologized (it was their fault for being there, but whatever) and we left.

This isn't the end to my night though. We were driving west on 303, and we came upon a cemetery with an empty SUV just sitting at the entrance. So, we go into the cemetery, while I'm screaming "SLAYERRRRRR!!!!!!!" We nearly got lost, when my friend "LaQuisha" called me. I screamed "SLAYERRR" at her for awhile, and then we went to McDonald's.

The only reason we went to McDonald's was so Mumbufu and Pepe could play on the slides and stuff. We were the only 3 people at the place, and apparently nothing was working. So, we ordered our food, ate and left. Pepe got a free shake for whatever reason, and then I went home. I woke up this morning sore, tired, and still not able to feel my rear-end. So I'm gonna say that last night was EPICCCCCC!!!!!!!

Hey,errybody. Like I said in my 1st blog post, I like to go on rants. Like, a lot. It's a good way to just let off steam, without punching a hole in my wall. And right now, I'm on the verge of doing that. So, here is the 1st official rant of Lunch-Time Conversations!

Fruitcake; I hate it, you hate it, pretty much EVERYBODY hates it. I mean, is there even any fruit in fruitcake?  I can't find any. It seems like if you got a bunch of reindeer crap and put it all together into a block of crap, you would have fruitcake. It's like a semi-edible brick, that you just re-gift. Why do people even give other people fruitcake? Nobody wants it. I'd, in all seriousness, rather get absolutely nothing for Christmas (yes, I know it's mid-January. I really don't care, this needs to be said) then get a fruitcake.


Ha, I feel better now. My wall shall survive another day. That was my 1st rant, and their will be many more to follow it!

Lunch of the Living Dead.....Or Is It?

So I'm pulling an all-nighter with my friend, who we'll call "Cleveland." Now, Cleveland was in my lunch last year (so were Winston and Mumbufu), and last year we started an argument that to this day still rages on. Inspired by the movie "Scary Movie 3," I asked my friends wether or not you can wake up dead. I figured the answer would be a resounding "no, that's stupid. " Little did I know the level of my friends stupidity. Half of them said "yes." Now tell me, how the hell can you wake up dead? If your dead, your dead. You can't wake up. "Well, what if you die, and u get revived, and you wake up?" NO, IDIOT, THAT MEANS YOU'RE FREAKIN ALIVE! Ughh, so I ask you, good people of the blogging community.

Can you wake up dead?

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Ooooops! I Didn't Think of this Before!

Ha, sup again. I realized I should probably tell u about the people I sit at lunch with. So, hear I go.

1st is "Mumbufu." He's my main man, my partner-in-crime. He's a pretty smart dude. You wouldn't be able to tell based off of his choices in women; They are all crazy ugly chicks, and he ends up pissing them allllll off. This leads to some pretty interesting convos. Stay tuned, and I guarantee there will be one.....

2nd is "Gavrillo." Gavrillo is, to say the least, a slight bit "out there." He has all of these consipiracy theories about everything from 9/11 to why his order was wrong at Burger King the other day.

3rd is "Winston." Winston is, like myself, a metal-head ( \m/ ). He's not that talkative, but when he says stuff, it's usually funny as hell.

4th is "Apollo Chody Flame" or just Apollo for short. He never talks. But, he has his moments.

5th is "McBags O'Toole." He's pretty awesome. He's completely random. For example, he'll shout "I am NOT A WHORE!" at completely random points in a conversation.

That's pretty much it. I'm sure I'll talk about other people, too. But for now, adios.

The Beginning of My Blogging Experience...

Sup, ya'll. This is Lunch-Time Conversations. It's a blog inspired about the conversations I have at lunch with my friends. It's not just for that purpose. It'll also probably also talk about my life, go on some entertaining rants, you know that kinda stuff.

I guess I should probably say a little bit about myself. I'm Jacob. And that's all that's really important. I'm not going to tell u my friends name's, but not because I don't trust all of you. It's because they may not "appreciate" it. Not that I at all care about their feelings (I don't) but because I don't feel like getting bitched at. I hope you all understand.

That's pretty much all I have to say for now. I'll probably be posting every day if I can. I hope you all enjoy my blog.
