So, according to Eva the Deadbeat at the Deadbeat Update, I am not a pervert...just health conscious.

Beowulf, bitch!

Tan and I watched Beowulf & Grendel yesterday. While not the greatest movie, it was fun and epic and had a weird troll-on-witch sex scene. Plus Grendels mother was badass. Well, it piqued our interest so tonight I may rent the Beowulf movie made in 1999 starring Christopher Lambert.

From Wikipedia:

A tourtière is a meat pie originating from Quebec, usually made with ground pork and/or veal, or beef. The true original French Canadian tourtière was made with 'tourte', a type of Passenger Pigeon, hence its name. It is a traditional Christmas and New Year's Eve dish in Quebec, but is also enjoyed and sold in grocery stores all year long. This kind of pie is known as pâté à la viande (literally, meat pie) in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region. Tourtière is not exclusive to the province of Québec. Tourtière is a traditional French-Canadian dish served by generations of French-Canadian families throughout Canada. In the U.S. state of Vermont citizens of Québécois ancestry have introduced the recipe to the state's culture, and it is traditionally eaten on Christmas Eve.

Kramer's a rascist?

article here: I guess after being heckled by a couple of black guys Michael Richards unleashed a rant filled with the naughtiest of naughties (aka the 'n-word')

who would'a thunk it?
I went to three parties this weekend!

The first was the diorama-o-rama, where people learned that when JB is 15 or so beers deep he can cut the fucking rug.

The second was a pie crust making, quiche eating, eggnog drinking party at Meghan & Gahlord & Phoebe's. It was pretty exclusive.

The THIRD was a pot-luck stylee Thanksgiving dinner over at Kyle Bryant Becca & Jays. 40 people! So much food! Santa Clause is Coming to Town on DVD!

I'm almost Thanksgiving burned out and there are still 4 days to go...

I've come to realize that this blog is kinda worthless and bland- impersonal and generic- forgettable and regrettable- so now I'm going to try to make an effort to post meaningful and personal things. i may have to limit posts to once a week or less even (i don't think anyone except maybe tanner reads this anyway)- i really don't have much to say- and usually when i do have something important to say the anger or fear or loneliness or pain that inspired it burns away too fast before i can come up with a way to express it. so bear with me...

election wrap-up/diorama-o-rama

The Election Night Party was a rousing success! Thanks to everyone who came out and talked and laughed and drank and didn’t care that I went to bed early. Last I heard the Senate was still split 49-49 and the Dems had the House! About fucking time…Rick Santorum you fucking pecker.

Anyway, tonight I’m off to Montreal to see Bob Dylan with the Foo Fighters Acoustic (of all people) and then my 4 day birthday extravaganza begins! Thursday and Friday I’m spending at my Dads new hunting cabin in Duane, NY. But I’ll be home by Friday night if anyone wants to buy me a beer!

Ok see ya! JB

One more thing… a little diorama contest invite from Drew at the GreenDoor Studio!

After a great Halloween show, we are gearing up for the next one. The Diaramma-o-ramma is as follows: A shoe box, other than that its totally open ended. We put out a call to artists in the 7days and hopefully will get some good response. $5 entry fee and the top three will walk away with the funds due to popular vote. So encourage others to join in, submissions due 17th November, Friday, and the opening will follow that very same evening. Looking forward,

birthday bean

I haven’t really heard much about it or even seen the poster, but this Saturday is the 6th birthday celebration at Radio Bean- you know the deal- 40+ acts between 8am Saturday morning and 2am Sunday morning. Last year Nest Material had a great 20 minute jam featuring at least 12 people including Gahlord Dewald, Greg Davis, and Johnny Sparkle. This years festivities kick off with “Party Star” at 8am- I’m gonna try to make it for this, go home get some sleep, go back and forth all afternoon for music and FREE coffee- and then finally make it to the Shredding & Wind Up Bird show at the Greendoor Studio at 8pm. Whew!
