I've never had a JuJuBe, either.
As I was walking back from D'Angelo's
, where I ate a Big Papi
, I noticed a Chuckles wrapper lying on the sidewalk. I realized that, in all my 28 block-rocking years, I've never eaten even a single Chuckle. I'm not even sure exactly what they are; some sort of gumdrop thing, right? But it got me thinking about all the other major namebrand candies, and how I've never tasted many of them. Never has a Whatchamacalit crossed these lips, nor a Skor, 100 Grand, or Fifth Avenue. I've never gnawed on a Charleston Chew, or bitten into a Mars Bar. I've taken only single bites of Mounds and Almond Joy, and hated both. I didn't even like Butterfingers until the last five years or so. I don't eat candy much anymore (I prefer baked goods), but when I was a kid I downed enough to carry me through the length of my life. I was meek, though, timid, and hardly ever experimented. I stuck to the same three or four staples, entering only the occasional dalliance with a Milky Way or Snickers. SweeTarts, Caramel Creams, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were my main gig. I had a brief flirtation with Chunkys when I was six, and you could never go wrong with a Hershey's bar, but for the most part I stuck to those three. There was one other that I loved, and although Crews will totally have my back on this, most people I've met despise this candy with the hatred of a thousand Dixiecrats. It doesn't bug me, though, because I know that, despite the critics and naysayers, the Zero
bar is one of the finest sweets in the land. That delectable white chocolate, beefily packed with the thickest nougat and chewiest caramel, still thrills me. Shaw's "Little White House" in Dalton kept Zero bars in their vending machines, and that is easily the only benefit in working for that horrible company. What an underappreciated gem of a treat!

Footbizzle's College Rap Page?
This is fucking absolutely incredibletasticsome!
Obvs took someone a really long time, but its such a fun read. Relates certain college football teams to certain rappers and explains why. They pair up UGA with JADAKISS - which is cool, but not in the way they relate it.
People I expect to really like this: LD, Hillary, Zieg (except he doesnt like rap).

OH SHIT I MET....THIS DUDE
from VH1's Best Week Ever
Friday night we were playing never have I ever at Smith's Olde Bar (sadly, not lying) when he came in with a buddy to drink. He was in town doing some radio promotion and playing the FABULOUS PUNCHLINE! A friend of ours here in ATL is balls to the wall and completed a TTYB (Go "Talk To Your Boyfriend") dare. She went over to start conversation and I came out of the bathroom and joined them. The dude was pretty cool. Down to earth and funny in person. We tried to get him to come out with us to MJQ to hip hop night which he promptly said to me "I'd like to see you in the middle of Hip Hop night Mr. Khaki Pants and collar shirt". Scolded by VH1. Fuck. He then went on to say "this here is the afterparty". Cool guy. Drinks Woodchuck i think. It was dark.
Spring BREAK! '94!
Fuck, 11 years ago.
I ended my college trip early to come back to ATL to see Pavement for the first time on the Thursday night of Spring Break. To this day one of my best shows. I stumbled across the set list for that show today...fuckin doosy! Just look at that ENCORE! Blew my mind at the time. I remember SM being somewhat drunk, but in great fucking spirits. The "Orchestra" songs were one rambling one SM played by himself-probably improved that night and then went into "Holly Springs Orchestra Song" which I think is an extended version of BRINX JOB. Also that wasnt a Lemonheads cover, that was the early working title for BLACK OUT from Wowee Zowee
i think. "Hit the Home Down" was "Home" in the middle of "Hit The Plane Down". I really really really wish I had a copy of this shit.

Mindless Movie Content:WEDDING CRASHERS
- Absolutely everything I wanted it to be. Excellent, exactly my kind of comedy. Raunchy, yet quick and educated while seeming dumb-ed down. LD
hit the nail on the head though, the director's comedy timing is off because you miss half the jokes due to the fact that audience is in hysterics. Although can you really tell Vince Vaughn to slow down when he is on a double time roll like he is throughout this entire movie? Probably not. I would imagine its really easy and hard to direct him. On one hand you can say, go ahead do your thing, be funny, let loose. On the other hand - thats what you get from him so you cant be like, "uh yeah, go back and change this one line". Both he and Owen Wilson AND Walken were amazingly funny. I give it like an 8.5 or 9.
HOSTAGE - rented but never watched. Oh well, who cares?

RIP BUDDY. You kicked ass.
for the completists
I've got a review
of that awesome new Excepter
record in this week's Weekly Dig
Lately I've spent some time listening to this Reading
cd Josh Borger sent me. I've had it for like a year, at least, but it got misplaced in another disc's case and disappeared for months. I'm glad I found it, as it's really good. Too bad I never got to see these guys live. I might put a song or two from it up over on the Extension in a day or two.
for your bewilderment
I was in an FYE store this weekend, and I don't know what confused me more, the fact that the sticker price for new cds is $19.99, or that they still release some new albums on cassette. They had the latest Luda on tape for ten bucks, alongside recent releases by the Game, 50 Cent, and Eminem. Is it only rap that still comes out on cassette? I didn't see the new Foo Fighters there, to give one example of a recent high-profile rock album.
Oh, wait, even more confusing, of the thirty or so cassettes in their fifty cent tape cut-out bin, roughly a third were Shimmy Disc albums from the late '80's. I so would have bought the John S. Hall
tape if I didn't already have the cd.
do spoilers matter if you're fairly sure nobody you know gives a shit?
All I know about Harry Potter comes from newspaper articles and CNN segments about how groin-grindingly popular he is. I've never read a page of the books, nor seen even a second of the films (outside of trailers). Thanks to the media's collective orgasm every time a book is released, though, I have come to learn the names and general roles of various major characters. All the reviews mention how dark the new book is, and how the ending is a major downer. Despite having no first-hand contact with the series, I believed I could predict the ending of the latest installment, based on these reviews. This incredibly awesome website
confirms my suspicions. I don't give a crap about Potter, but this site is still pretty cool. I recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind getting their shit spoiled.
UPDATE: This site
tries harder, but can't touch the beatiful simplicity of the original.
I still haven't gotten that burrito.
was worth the thirty-five bucks. It's rare for a band to make almost no effort to interact with a crowd outside the music and still hold fifteen hundred or so people utterly captive for ninety minutes. I don't know the completely accurate setlist, but they played pretty much everything that they did in Atlanta, but with the addition of "Little Fury Things". I think Lou might have talked between a couple songs, but I'm pretty sure J didn't say a damn thing all night. Might be wrong, though.
I've heard a lot of shit about them, and the audience absolutely despised them, but I thought the Majik Markers
were great. You've got to respect a band that's willing to put themselves in a position to be totally hated by several hundred people.
The show was early, and we were out of the Avalon by quarter to ten. The Avalon's on Lansdowne, right across the street from Fenway. They were playing "Sweet Caroline", and yet folks were streaming out of the ballpark exits. Obviously it was some sort of blow-out, and from the general mood on the street it was also obviously Boston's game over the Yankees. Mingling in such a festive atmosphere immediately after an excellent, seemingly impossible concert was really quite nice. And then Qdoba had to fuck with my goodtimes by closing an hour early. I had the taste of burrito in my mouth all the way home. I had to make do with a mediocre turkey sandwich from Marty's, a place that served my wife rancid meat the last time we ate there. What the fuck, Qdoba?
pointed out that Bradley's Almanac
has the entire show up here
. And if you received a call from me Friday night, and heard nothing but a loud obnoxious hum, with (maybe) an almost indiscernable bassline behind it, that was me doing my best DJ impersonation. Sorry, I was psyched.
A Sneak Preview
Last night I caught a sneak preview of the new Dukes of Hazzard remake. It screened in my head as I slept. And all I can say is that movie's kind of fucked up. It starts out normal enough, following Bo and Luke, played by Johnny Knokville and Sean William Scott, as they live their lives of bootlegging and outsmarting the law. It's enjoyable and Jessica Simpson's boobs get plenty of screen time.
But about 20 minutes in the movie veers off into totally uncharted territory. I was totally expecting 90 minutes of short shorts broken up by car chases and the General Lee going off all sorts of bad ass jumps. But this version doesn't even focus on the Duke Boys. The whole movie switches its focus, out of the blue, to Roscoe P. Coltrane. And Roscoe's not even played by a person. He's some sort of acid bleaced white skeleton/toxic avenger type hybrid thing with no clothes and no sherrif hat and some gnarly pieces of drippy flesh hanging from his bones. I don't think he even had a badge, but he does have some nice teeth. And there's this 15 or 20 minute long scene where he's just driving, fast as hell and its just one shot from inside his patrol car. Roscoe's just blabbering on and on about "those duke boys and their fucking fancy pants."
It was an interesting way to take things, but I'm not sure if this movie is really going to find an audience.

Working my ass off at White Water after being "promoted" to Rentals Supervisor b/c the 45 year old previous mgr got fired for sexual harassment. 90 hour weeks yo, no lie. Off time hanging out with Dark and playing music in the band Jolly Trolley. Got "stranded" in a canoe with dark and evan. Don't think I made out with anyone that summer. Damn.
5 years ago: Gradumacated UGA and immediately took a trip to LA to see my friend Chris Alender, wanted to move out there pretty badly. Jennifer Love Hewett waved at us as she drove by in her Benz.

France was kicking in big time we were just getting ready to release our first record that we really proud of. Playing a lot of shows with our new drummer. Retired the old red Jetta that summer. Moved in with Julie Dyles about this time that summer. Beers and I had a party that summer that Michael Stipe showed up at, which was really fucking weird, but cool.

Yesterday: Woke up tired as shit after the WT show. Worked in jeans. Went and looked at a couple places for our rehearsal dinner. Got pissed at a coworker for leaving almost two hours early to go sit by her pool. Recorded a song that I like a lot. Ate some killer Chicken Chili my sister made. Did laundry. Watched 15 minutes of Brat Camp. Fucked with a roach (insect). Listened to Red House Painters as I crashed.

twenty minutes I didn't have to spend working
picked up from old reliable
10 years ago: had just graduated high school. Spent my summer lying around the house, working at TCBY Treats, and occasionally making awful music with DJ. It was around the middle of July that I missed that Guided by Voices / Chavez show at the Masquerade due to the officious neat-freak asst mgr of the TCBY. I also went to that Russian religious art show they had at the World Congress Center, or wherever it was.
5 years ago: I was interning at the Atlanta History Center, living with my folks in Marietta, working part-time at the Merchant’s Exchange Carmike (my second stint), and just generally killing time before grad school started up in the Fall.
1 year ago: We were approaching the end of our first year in Boston, and getting wrapped up majorly in the Red Sox. I finally quit an ultra-shitty band that shall remain nameless. We were also getting ready to go home for a wedding shower and a recording session, where we crafted the blindingly brilliant future hit “Wizard of Points”.
Yesterday: “Worked”, fucked around on Google Earth, listened to some music, did some dishes, took out some trash, gathered together the stuff I plan on playing at River Gods tonight, and watched the final half-hour of the ECW One Night Stand dvd.
Today: “work”, some more work training, my monthly meeting with quality coach Janice, and then take off early to go to WZBC. After that, kill some time, and then head off to River Gods, where I shall no doubt embarrass myself.
Tomorrow: “work”, but with a hangover. And then Dinosaur Jr. Impending awesomeness on an unimaginable scale, hopefully.

Man, the stash musta been good that day!
google earth remains awesome one day later
So when did they completely pave over Fulton County Stadium's old resting spot? On Google Earth, you can see Fulco's field sitting next to Turner's. It looks like the stadium itself is gone, but the diamond and grass remains. I would think this picture had to be taken sometime in late 1997, as they blew the Stadium up in August or September of that year, I believe.
Meanwhile, 30 or so miles northwest of there, the Avenue at East Cobb rests in plain site, dating the picture to late 1999, at the earliest. I'm fairly sure it opened up sometime in September or October of '99.
Okay, there's really not much difference between this and Google Map, but the presentation is infinitely cooler.
Damn, if you've got the high-speed internet, this
is certainly worth your time. I can make out my parents' cars in their driveway.
the hot track masta, just sent me a few hot tracks. One of them - DAVID BANNER - Livin'. Great track, but the best part is this one stanza about 2 and a half in by a guest rapper named "Devin The Dude"...
"basketball was all they taught a young nigga in school/
fuck that foot and yo baskets, you can lick on my balls/
my school don't have da inna-net, so I sell crack in my draws"
Brilliant, but WHAT!?!?!?!
not entirely content-free movie and dvd reviews
: very brief, like an hour, and wraps up right when you’re starting to lose interest. I can see why some of the folks in question would be angry, as the litigious Luke Weil and nihilistic Eurotrash model skeeze Cody are both thoroughly unlikable. Most of the other featured heirs are relatively okay, though. Ivanka Trump actually seems smart and somewhat normal; the nerdish Si Newhouse comes off like a college-aged Neal Schweiber; and the mild-mannered, hard-working, and impeccably named Josiah Hornblower, both a Vanderbilt and a Whitney, is a real-life Chester, of Sifl and Olly non-fame. The director leaves one pressing question unanswered, however: how the hell did pro golfer Raymond Floyd make enough money to hob-nob with the billionaires? Shrek 2
: As awful as I had imagined. Shrek is still an asshole, Puss-in-Boots isn’t as funny as I had hoped, and much of the humor is completely inappropriate (Shrek talking about his balls, Pinnochio wearing a thong, the three farm girls wanting to jump the humanized Shrek, etc.) And, of course, the incessant use of bad pop music and unimaginative pop-culture references continues unabated. The worst is Pete Yorn’s horrific cover of “Ever Fallen In Love”, played for no appropriate reason during some mindless action scene. Like the first one, the highlight is Donkey, who not only gets the best lines but benefits from the best vocal performance, as well. When We Were Kings
: I wish Foreman had pummeled the crap out of him. George in ’74 was the coolest looking dude maybe ever, and his refusal to echo Ali’s “I’m gonna kill ‘im” rhetoric speaks to his integrity. Ali’s chatter got annoying quick, but you’ve got to give him credit for his strategic brilliance. The movie itself was excellent, with an amazing amount of period footage. The concert looked and sounded incredible, Mailer and Plimpton weren’t annoyingly pretentious and/or literary, and the suspense is built up well for those who don’t know or can’t remember who won. Even Allyn dug it, and she can’t stand boxing.Daily Show: Indecision 2004
, Disc 1 (of 3): Peaks early, then trails off slowly during the final two episodes. “Rob Corddry’s Boston” is some of the best tv I’ve seen in months, though, and not just because they flash a couple shots from my neighborhood. ECW: One Night Stand
: Forty-five minutes in, and it’s been some great fun. On one level I would have rather seen a WCW / NWA reunion, but if that happened and stayed true to form a horrible last hour would have ruined whatever fun the undercard provided. I think I’ve seen three matches on the ECW dvd, and although none of them have been all that wonderful, they’ve been excellent as nostalgia. The Lance Storm
/ Chris Jericho
opener has been the best so far, but the ending was pretty lame. If it is the last match of Storm’s career, he should have gone over clean, and not with interference from Aldo Montoya. Anyway, I hope to knock another hour or so out tonight.
a physical appearance
I'll be making my live disc jockeying debut this Thursday night at River Gods
in Cambridge, as a part of WZBC
's bimonthly Ointment
night. I've got the first shift, 9:00 to 10:15 pm, and have been told to keep it kind of laid-back, at least for the first forty-five minutes, as folks will still be eating dinner. But so, I'm actually sort of nervous, and am having a hard time deciding what to play. Any suggestions?
Friday night was loud as fuck. Luckily I remembered my ear plugs for the first time in months. Dark saw Dinosaur Jr. back in like '94 at the Roxy and once told me it was the loudest show he had ever seen and after Friday I didnt doubt him. Although I had seen Dinosaur back in '97, it was at Music Midtown and the audience didnt get the full effect of being trapped in a club with all that sound.
Friday was great though. Everything old, nothing after Bug. Lou Barlow kinda looked like a frat boy, and was typically dorky on stage. Jay looked as disinterested as ever but still tore it loose (mane almost as white as McD's). They fucking whipped my ass like a horse. Here is the setlist

The wife couldn't care less about the Minutemen, but she does greatly enjoy good documentaries, and so she's willing to give it a shot. So, do you have to dig the band to like the film?

Owen Wilson is following me for the past couple days.
Last night Zoolander was on the tube at the Local.

That Damn Show!
Well this is going to fry your wig.
The dudes from The Damn Show! have a new show on MTV2.
Was it just me that thought these dudes were about the least funny thing going on in ATH 4-5 years ago? I think there was a time that they used to call to try to "prank call" or "outwit" Head 2 Head, aiming for Zany - yet just kinda fell flat on its face when we didnt laugh at the retarded jokes.
Well they proved us all wrong. The giants at MTV2 picked them up as a part of their new sweep of coarse and alarming shows waiting for their spot in the limelight of the Sunday Stew. Shows like Wondershozen (which is fucking hilarious), and other programs spawned from the likes of Jackass intended to show HOW BONKERS LIFE CAN BE.
But hey, good for these dudes. From the trailer, it actually looks cookie cutter sketch but pretty decent, however I have seen most of these skits before - and the Jesus at the swim meet sketch still taint funny. They stuck with it apparently and didnt let the dream die, like we did long ago. The show is on MTV2 tomorrow at 9. STANKERVISION
49 HOT DOGS IN 12 MINUTES!!!
And the crazy thing is, this isnt even Takeru Kobayashi's record.
He demolished the rest of the field though. The closest eater was still like 10 behind him. The secret is - 2 dogs, then 2 buns, all of course dipped in water to lubricate the food. I watched all 12 glorious minutes and was nearly sick twice. All from watching this one GIGANTIC 400lb dude almost throw up twice. He was dripping wet bun from his mouth and gagging and his huge fat was jiggling.
The other crazy thing is - the total combined body weight of the first and second place finisher was less than this 250lbs. It furthered the Japanese rule over American fat heads in this sport.
This guy did lose to a bear though.
Woke up at 6:20. Ran Peachtree.
Ate Whole Foods sushi for lunch.
Had an awesome cookout to thank the fathers.
