I know it's the season for GIVING... but fuck it, I'm selfish. So let's talk about ME.

I was reeeeeeeeally hoping I could go out and buy myself a brand new guitar amplifier head, a 100 watt Orange Rockerverb 100 markIII. Been salivating over them ever since I happened across one at Atlanta Discount Music back in spring. They're priced at about $2100 though. After a few unexpected bills late this year, that's just not gonna be doable. Maybe if shit goes smooth the first part of 2019, I can have the cash in hand by spring or summer.

Already had plans for customizing the look of it. It's in a big ugly bright orange enclosure, so I was gonna get some "01" decals to go on the sides, and confederate flag for the top middle, some "General Lee" script text to go on the corners, and a Dodge Challenger badge for the front of it, make the thing look kinda like the Dukes of Hazzard car. Or not, I dunno, might just leave it the fuck alone and not be such a douchebag.

I did try out a little used Jet City JCA20 mini head, and it actually sounded pretty decent. They wanted 250 for it, and it sells for 300 new. But it's a one channel amp with no effects loop. I kinda want switching between a clean and overdrive sound. I also kinda gotta have an effects loop so I can used the "send" to feed the head into my rack if I want to run the power through the Peavey poweramp or just run from the preamp section of the head into my Marshall preamp and Digitech processor for recording purposes. And even if I don't do any of that, I still want a loop between the preamp and poweramp to add some delay and reverb pedals (whenever I get around to buying them).

But Jet City does make a 2 channel + effects loop version of that head called a JCA22. They're marked at 350 right now on Guitar Centers site, which is totally doable. So maybe after Christmas, I'll put in an order for one. It's no Orange, but it'll do until one shows up. So tired of playing this shitty Marshall JMP1 preamp. Paired with this 6L6 tubed Peavey poweramp, it's got a sound like a castrated JCM800, it's so weak and boring sounding.

It's Christmas time! I like Christmas threads. Haunted likes Christmas threads. We both like boobies... I mean... who doesn't? Even lesbians like boobies.

CHRISTMAS BOOBIES! (No nudity! Boobies the whole family can enjoy!)

And of course, as per tradition, I will again post a link to the old out of print Matt Rogers' Rated X-Mas album. It's not that good. Very juvenile. Just a bunch of dick and pussy jokes sung to the tune of Christmas songs. But it's free, so what do you care.

I glanced down at the tastyspleen calendar and the 21st was highlighted as "holiday: Winter Solstice". That's fine by me, at least SOMEONE is remembering what this season was originally all about before it morphed into worshiping the birth of Jesus Christ which was slightly before it became about gratuitous consumerism and such like it is now. But it does seem very odd that theres absolutely NOTHING highlighted for the 25th. I'm no fan of religion, but I do have a fond affection for Christmas trees and Christmas Carol movies and other things that tend to put people in a generally good mood this time of year. Who doesn't like happy people?

It's strange times we live in when a guy with a Satanic demon's name is asking the powers that be to observe Christmas. "Michael Landon's hair looks swell, it's Christmas time in Hell!"

Mr Gorbachev... PUT THAT HOLIDAY BACK ON MY CALENDAR. :dohdohdoh:

Some 10 year old kid playing drums with Jackyl.

I like their early stuff. They're originally from Georgia, which is always a plus in my book.

Nothing remarkable really. The best part, and really the only part I really wanted to share, was this comment...

The IRB concept was created to avoid people being used as guinea pigs for drugs...

They still do that though. Opt-in AIDS and cancer patients. And... pretty much everyone else taking a prescription compound that's been on the market less than 15 years. Clinical trials aren't as thorough as they should be. And these companies argue that while they wait for testing, people are dying. But that's because they don't wanna come right out and say, WE'RE MISSING OUT ON PROFITS! They've already assumed the drug will kill people... or maybe they KNOW it will. They've done the math and figured out that their profits will exceed their liability.

Kinda scares me about getting old. Used to, I had to worry about my family history of heart disease. My old man had a heart attack years ago, and some blood thinner or cholesterol pill they prescribed came closer to killing him with permanent liver damage than the 90% blockage he had that required a 3 or 4 different bypasses, angioplasty and stints. Even now, if he eats certain kinds of food that requires heavy liver processing, his liver hurts him for hours at a time like someone is stabbing him. Pretty sure there's a class action suit against that drug now. He's not in on it because... nobody is gonna get paid jack shit unless they're dead. He's not. He's just feels like he's GONNA BE every time eats too much cheese.

My old lady was watching the news yesterday as I walked through the room and saw that same scene. I remember because I had to stop and remark that it looked like he had his head down and was thinking to himself, "What the fuck did I do to deserve being verbally accosted by this big orange asshole?"

Clearly he's trying to tune him out, looking at the floor, finding his happy spot, doing everything he can to resist the impulse to jump up and shout something he'll regret later.

A friend of mine from my high school and early college days (1999/2000) talked me into joining her on Diaryland, which was a kinda-popular kinda-blog type of site. It's what the name implies, an online journal kind of thing where either just your friends, or just you, or everyone and anyone could read what you put there. I kept that for maybe a couple of months before I abandoned it. It's been long gone now.

And then in probably 2005, a then girlfriend talked me into joining her on Yahoo Diary (or whatever the hell it was called). I did that for maybe 4 or 5 months too. Both times, I talked about things I did during the day, going out and getting stoned as fuck, drinking excessively, partying, etc. Things I certainly wouldn't want to print out and staple to a job resume. Luckily, the Yahoo Diary thing is gone now too and all the shit I wrote there will never come back.

But Facebook and Twitter will likely be mainstays for a long time to come. Because what you don't realize is that Facebook is not as independent as you may assume. They are government sponsored. In the early days, politicians and corporations were the biggest advertisers for them telling everyone to join them there. You think it's there to keep up with friends and family... but it's really there for the government to keep up with YOU.

I've heard some companies will refuse to consider you for a job if you refuse to provide your facebook details, don't have a facebook profile, or if you have a facebook profile but don't actively use it enough. Ain't that some shit?

Anyway, I live without facebook and all forms of social media. Do I miss anything important? Nope.

I also don't have a cell phone. Remember when people just didn't have them? The world still worked just fine. I get on wonderfully, and... I have an extra 80-100 bucks in my pocket every month too.

Okay. Alright. Now... I'm starting to wonder if this like a big elaborate reality show comedy sketch. There's no way "educated" people can be this stupid.

"...if you want to date an anarchist woman."

Who the fuck would want to do that? Everything would be her looking for a reason to get offended about a situation so she could blame the state. She'd be in a perpetual bitchy mood. No thanks. Regular women are already bitchy enough.

Mostly was referring to the articles title by way of the URL. I briefly looked at the article but didn't really read it. I've already read 100 just like it, so whats the point.

I get the feeling there's a... BUNCH... of people out there with nothing to do, and they get up every morning, rub their hands together grinning, saying to themselves, "Who we gonna catch today?" Like they live for no other reason but to point out the racist or homophobic things someone might've ever said on social media. And we're all supposed to follow along and be utterly righteously outraged by it as if the star college quarterback was taking a hard discriminatory stance against those gross disgusting ungodly gay people when he was 14... when it's far more likely that he was just being a typical stupid 14 year old and calling something he didn't like "gay" without considering that one day someone would sift through everything he's ever done actively looking for the slightest reason to be publicly offended. Used to be that suffering was a virtue... but now, it's morphed into the virtue of victimism. The suffering part is irrelevant, just find a way to play the victim.

Why do I always have to be the spoofing police? Why do these cunts pick ME? Am I really that unlikable? Because if that's the case, its more of a complement than a means of trolling me. I'm glad you fuckin' hate me. I'm glad I do that to you. Know that it took such little effort on my part to push you to that point.

Anyway... yeah, some no life fuckin' loser was spoofing both me and [A2W]H3mr0yd on DM, December 11, 2018, at around 3:15pm Eastern. Dickhead doesn't know about IP's apparently. Please see fit to pick an appropriate name for this boogar eating moron since apparently he isn't smart enough to come up with an original one by himself.
