Smoking this way was appropriate.

Went to a Halloween party. Got wasted. Ate a lot of candy. Had fun.

Carolyn & I went to see WEEN last night (20051027) at the 9:30 Club.

It was — as usual — an awesome show. Ran into Aaron Evans, who helped us get to the front (and took some pictures) (and gave his “Home Rainbow” video using Rocky footage to Deaner after the show). Also ran into John The Canadien, who failed to sell his extra ticket…Again. (Did the same at a Rammstein concert years ago).

They played 35 songs over an almost 3 hour span:

  1. What Deaner was Talking About
  2. The HIV Song (nothing like a whole club of people shouting “AIDS!” with glee)
  3. Spinal Meningitis
  4. Happy Colored Marbles
  5. Piss Up A Rope
  6. Take Me Away
  7. Waving My Dick In The Wind
  8. Mr. Richard Smoker
  9. Transdermal Celebration
  10. Voodoo Lady
  11. Mutilated Lips
  12. Bananas And Blow
  13. Leave Deaner Alone (new song)
  14. You Fucked Up
  15. Puerto Rican Power
  16. Touch My Tooter
  17. Nan
  18. Springtheme
  19. Push Th’ Little Daisies
  20. The Mollusk
  21. Light Me Up
  22. Dr. Rock
  23. I Can’t Put My Finger On It
  24. Buckingham Green
  25. Boys Club
  26. A Tear For Eddie
  27. Zoloft (very long, drawn-out version)
  28. Ocean Man
  29. Sorry Charlie (used the megaphone for this, since they didn’t play “Awesome Sound”)
  30. Fluffy
  31. Dont Get 2 Close (To My Fantasy)
  32. Going Gets Tough From The Getgo
  33. In The Mood
  34. Johnny On The Spot
  35. Mr. Would You Please Help My Pony?
  36. Never Squeal On The Pusher (sick extended jam, Claude drum solo)

Always a pleasure. Although the over-zealous 930 security decided to grab the wrists of some couple that was trying to leave and dragged them into the back, I think just for taking the set list. (Refer to http://www.acm.vt.edu/~clint/media/concerts.htm — I already have setlists from 930 club so I don’t see what the problem is.)

It just reminds me of that asshole cop who pushed me and threatened me with arrest in the Rennesaince Festival parking lot a couple weekends ago. Dickwad.

It’s as if anyone who considers themselves a hired thug has the magical ability to grants themself the power to detain people at will — if they think they’ve done anything wrong. I’m pretty sure only the police actually have that power. It was the same shit at 930 as RennFest — a couple trying to leave, getting harassed for having too much fun.

This is America. Don’t stray too far from the herd, or you will be asked to provide papers, please.

This is freaking awesome. Especially the end.


stare at black plus, pink dots appear to turn green but don’t really (MUST VIEW AT FULL SIZE FOR ANIMATION TO WORK), originally uploaded by ClintJCL.

My coworker Scott emailed me this optical illusion today. It’s pretty damn cool.

You’ll have to actually click on the image and drill down to the full-size version to see the animation — otherwise it’s just a bunch of pointless pink dots.

I actually have 500 or so optical illusion images in an archive at home.

In response to Clint’s post about the paintball outing:
I had to close my eyes and look away from the camera because the sun was sooooooo bright!!! i guess my eyes are ultra-sensitive to sunlight after my lasik surgery….  i couldn’t even look at clint when the sun was behind him because my eyes would automatically shut. 
that was the only time i’ve really noticed sensitivity to sunlight, though.. it doesn’t bother me while driving, and it didn’t bother me when we were actually playing – but we were mostly in the woods under the shade of the trees…
it was a good time.. the camoflage helped — last time i went, i wore a bright blue shirt because i didn’t know what it was like… i thought it was a group of people having fun by shooting paint at each other.. i didn’t know it was a whole war setting and we’d have to sneak around and stuff….  this time, i knew better…

Paintball was fun. Here’s me trying to look goofy in a group picture afterwards. I succeeded. Carolyn is looking cute as usual.
