Mega Music Monday #6 (I Think?) : Do You Want a Taco?

Hey everybody! Sorry I haven't posted in a week, I've been really bust. Especially over my 3 day weekend (which I spent hanging out with a very special person *wink wink*). But, I'm back! And it's Mega Music Monday! Today, I share with you the wonderful band "Psychostick" and their song "Do You Want a Taco?" Pyschostick plays "humor-core," which is pretty much metal with humorous lyrics. I love this band; they are EXTREMELY talented (they also have a serious band, called "Evacuating Chicago"). This is off their 2nd album "Sandwich," which is fantastic.

This song is very relavent to my life, since I recently discovered that all of my money goes to Taco Bell (which I will probably be blogging about in the near future). So, that's it. It's good to be back, and feedback is appreciated!

Raining Idiots

Hello, everybody! IMMA GO ON A RANT!!!!! Specifically, about the desecration and misuse of the hand gesture "\m/," which is followed by somebody screamnig "SLAYERRRRRRR!" I've blogged about doing it before, and it's something us metal-heads enjoy dearly. However, I've seen it trending lately that certain groups of "non-metal-heads" feel as though they are allowed to change it and use it incorrectly, without even knowing who started it! And this, for lack of better words, really grinds my gears!

1st off, this phenomenon was not created by famous (and overrated) 80's thrash metal band "Slayer." It was started by the late Ronnie James Dio (RIP). Now, most metal-heads (like myself) know this. But, these orange idiots don't! One of them had the audacity to tell me that I was wrong! AND I'M NOT WRONG!

This man....sings.....about rainbows.....in the dark.....
Secondly, these same idiots feel the need to CHANGE this time-honored tradition! This one annoying kid (who I shall name "Lucy") was standing next to my locker, being an idiot. Now, usually I'd just disregard him, for I generally don't care. But, after being told some non-sensical crap by the idiot next to him, he just went "slay!" Slay? SLAY??? IT'S FREAKIN SLAYERRRRR!!! YOU'RE ALREADY AN IGNORANT JERK, DON'T CHANGE IT!!!!!!

That's pretty much it. I feel much better! Feedback is appreciated!

Mega Music Monday #5: (Sic)

Hey everybody, it's Mega Music Monday! Today's song is "(Sic)" by Slipknot. It's off their debut album "Slipknot."This is a great, great album (IMO). It's so angry and raw, makes you want to just punch holes in walls. That's how I like my music! This song is very, very angry. Especially at the end, where Corey Taylor goes, like, psychotic. And, they use the words "malevolent" and "decidant." That, my friends, takes skill. So, this is a pretty good song.

I also like the random sound byte at the beginning, where the guy goes "HERE COMES THE PAIN!" It's just dandy. So, tell me what you think!

Even MORE Random Observations of My Life!

Hello everybody! It's a slow weekend, so I decided to post about more observations I've made about life.

Seeing two, maybe 3 cops in an hour is okay. But 6? What the hell???
Baja Mountain Dew is the best type. Too bad it's only sold at Taco Bell.....
Apple (especially iTunes) is facist. No, I don't feel like upgrading iTunes. Stop asking.
Interpretive dance is very, very weird.
Nu metal is a very underrated genre of music.
Driving when their is no snow is MUCH BETTER than driving when their is snow.
5th graders are untalented. Though, apparently more talented than 6th graders......
Back pain sucks.
Taco Bell is amazing. Especially those Fiesta Potatoes. Delicous.
The Cavs make no sense. At all.

So, that's pretty much it for today. Feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated!

Apparently, Brunswick DOES Have Talent!

Hey everybody. As you know, I went to my school's talent show the other night. It was really good (overall). It was completely packed, and I'm pretty sure they ran out of tickets. The teacher's went first (it was entertaining, it just went on foreverrrrrrrr). And then came the good stuff. McBags O'Toole and his band "OneWay Avenue" one first place. 2nd went to (I think) this breakdancing kid (he's insane. He can run on walls, I swear on my grandmother's grave). And  3rd went to (again, I think) some kid who did martial arts (aptly named "Lucifer" by Mumbufu, as he must have sold his soul to Satan in order to obtain those awesome skills).

Now, as in most talent shows, their were some bad acts. I mean, really really bad. The 1st student act was a band (who's name I don't even care to know) who covered "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. They botched it. It was on level with Fergie singing "Sweet Child of Mine" at the Super Bowl. It was atrocious.
And then, this one girl did interprative dance. Now, she came out wearing a white mask, white gloves, and white socks (no shoes). It was creepy. And, then it went on for, like, 8 minutes.  It was very, very strange. And, their were way too many pianists. It got boring after awhile.

So, that was my review of the talent show. What are some of your talents?

Brunswick's Got Talent......Or Not

Hello, people! Today, I will be attending a talent show at my school (not perfoming, for none of my talents are worth showcasing). I'm all for talent shows, I believe they are a great way to show people what you can do. Especially if you're, say, a band or a stand-up comedian. I do have one beef with it this year, though. This year it isn't "The Gong Show."

For those of you who don't know, The Gong Show was a TV show where, if you sucked, you got gonged. Last year's talent show was the Gong Show. And it went great (from what I was told). Everyone enjoyed it. However, someone's mommy complained that her daughter got gonged. And now, no more Gong Show.

An example of the Gong Show

Now, I'm against being a prick (unless it's neccessary). But, when you know that their is a possibility that you might suck, and that you might get gonged, you shouldn't be upset when it happens. Who really cares, to be honest. It's all for fun. Truthfully, if I got gonged, I'd just laugh. But nooooooooooo. We have these politically correct sad-sacks (I don't really care if this offends you, sorry, but that's not my problem) who believe that getting gonged "ruins their kid's self-esteem." Well then guess what, lock your kid in a room and never let them out so they can never have their feeling hurt ever. This is ridiculous. If you don't wanna get gonged, don't go on. Plain and simple. Don't cry about it. Since you did, you've ruined everyone else's fun. And for that, I say get a grip.

Mega Music Monday #4: Jamming

Hey everybody. It's Mega Music Monday. Today, I decided to go with some good old fashioned reggae. This song is by Bob Marley, the king of reggae (and weed). "Jamming" is one of my favorite songs by him (that and "Buffalo Soldier"). It's a classic, off of the album "Exodus."

So, in the spirit of the late Bob Marley, please enjoy this song! Feedback is appreciated!

More Random Observations of My Life

Hey everybody. Sorry I haven't posted in the past few days. I was busy and (truthfully) had no idea what to blog about. So, I've decided to just blog about some more observations I've made about life!

People who double-park deserve to be stoned. No exceptions. If you're gonna be a jerk, just stay home.
Procrastinating is the best way to get things done.
Why did Kurt Cobain have to die?
Oh my god, their's no more football....
People who drive with their brights on also deserve to be stoned to death.
Teacher's shouldn't give homework over the weekend. Nobody is going to do it. Ever.
Music is best enjoyed very loudly.
Their is absolutely NO WAY an orchestra can successfully perform a piece, say, this Thursday night, if they haven't even fricken practiced it yet. Failure ensured? I think so.
Don't try and start a conversation with somebody in a locker room if you don't know them. Especially if you're completely naked. Not cool.
The Nintendo 64 is one of, if not the best, gaming systems of all time. And I will do my best to acquire another one.
The drummer for Black Sabbath is amazing.
Swearing at stupid people makes you feel 10x better.

So that's pretty much it. Give me some random observations you've made over the years.

The Young and the Jobless

Hello everyone! I hope everyone has been doing good. I never knew being able to drive was so convenient! It is. So, since I got my license, my next goal is to find a job. This may be more difficult than getting my license. Nobody is hiring. I mean absolutely nobody. It's crazy. It sucks filling out an application with absolutely no hope of actually getting the job. It's fairly depressing.

I need a job, mainly because I need money. And I need the money so I can go buy a car. Or a truck. Ooooooh yeah. I've applied at a bunch of places. I haven't been called in for a single interview. And I'm not the only one who has this problem. None of my friends can get jobs, either. Apparentlly you have to "know somebody" in this town to get a job. So I had to go out of town (which is where being able to drive comes in handy). But even then, I feel my prospects are slim.

I don't want to end up like THIS: selling my vote for money.....
So yeah, that's all I felt like saying today.

Mega Music Monday #3: Do It Now

Guess what? IT'S MEGA MUSIC MODAY!!! Today, I have a non-metal song (shocking, I know). The song is "Do It Now" by Mos Def featuring Busta Rhymes. Mos Def is a freakin genius. The way he puts words together is amazing (in my opinion). This song is off his first album, "Black On Both Sides." It's a classic, and I highly reccommed purchasing it.

This song is great. Tell me what you think, and reccommend some music to me!

Random Observations of My Life

Hello! I couldn't think of much to blog about today, so I figured I'd just blog about a few random observations about my life.

Scouching was, to say the least, lack-luster. The hill wasn't steep enough for us to go far (and the man attempted to hold us down).
I hate country music. I was forced to listen to it in Pepe's truck. It's terrible. The only thing worse is Christain rock (which seems like an oxymoron, to me).
It's funny sitting in a restaraunt at night, and watching someone walk in stoned out of his mind. They look so paranoid, it just makes me laugh.
It's easy to get lost in downtown Medina. Damn one-way streets..........
It's a lot more fun looking for a job when your friend is looking with you.
Walmart is a very strange place. The people are even weirder....
Girls. Nuff said.
Working at the DMV must really suck. I couldn't do it.
Pantera can make any bad situation seem better.
I will never think of Charizard the same way again......

That's pretty much it for the day. GO PACKERS!

Scouching: A REAL Man Sport

Hello everybody! In a good mood today (I finally got my license. Now I just need a job). Tonight,  my friends and I are going to go scouching. What is scouching, you ask? It's when you sled down a hil.......on a couch! It's gonna be fantastic. I just hope Pepe, Mumbufu and I don't crash into a tree again, because it's REALLY going to hurt if we do. But I see it being a really good time. Especially if we live.

So, this is just going to be another short post today, because I'm busy. So, what kind of crazy things (such as scouching) have you done before?

Parma State of Mind

¡Buenos dias, mis amigos! Today is just a short post. I live in Brunswick, Ohio. But, I used to live in Parma, Ohio (it's just south of Cleveland). People give Parma a lot of flack; the roads suck, the people are stupid, etc. etc. etc. I'm here to tell  you that ALL OF IT IS TRUE! It is a horrible excuse for a city. This video your about to see was done by a local radio station. It truly describes Parma. Very well....

 That pretty much is Parma. Tell me what you think!

I just also wanted to say this; Last night, 3 of my fellow students were in a bad car accident. The one is ok, but the other two are in critical condition. They have head injuries, and (from what I understand) one is bleeding in the brain. That's bad. So, just please keep these 2 girls in your prayers. I know they are in mine.

Attack of the Orange People from New Jersey!!!

Hello! I didn't have school today (SNOW DAY!), so I decided to update my blog a little bit earlier than usual.
You know what I hate? Orange people. We all know them. These Jersey Shore-wannabee's who (supposedly) tan until their skin turns a ridiculous shade of orange. I doubt many of them ACTUALLY tan, but that's just my opinion. In my school, this trend seems to be especially prevalent among the stupid freshman girls. I'd say, to quote my friend, they are all "orange, sluts, or orange sluts." That being said, why would anyone want their skin to be that color? It's not attractive. It just makes it seem like you got ganged up on by a bunch of orange markers. I personally blame the Jersey Shore (specifically MTV).

That's hot. Not.......
I feel as though MTV is making my peers "less intellegent" to be polliticaly correct. For example, the Jersey Shore shows them that fighting, drinkin outrageously, and being a douchebag is ok. Well, it's not. I just feel that the programming on MTV is so ridiculously stupid, that it's making my peers stupid. Not that all of the shows are bad, but the popular one's are (in my opinion). So, what's your opinion?
