    Tags: diet,   

    I started to exercise and eat less. My goal is to drop from 275lbs to 235lbs.
    So far, everything hurts and I’m starving.

    But why is it the fat people are telling me what I’m doing wrong? –Not joking

      Weird Microphone Called a Reactor 

      I bought a new microphone on eBay…. again. This time it was an accident. I made a seriously low-ball offer; and he took it. I can’t help but wonder if he knows something I don’t know. ???

      This one is called a Reactor, by Blue Microphones. It now holds the record for the weirdest mic I have ever owned. –Just take a look.

      The head, a Blue B6 capsule, rotates so you can put it close to things like guitar amps. –Shame, I don’t want to mic a guitar amp.

      I’m curious about it because it uses the same capsule as one of their better vocal mics and maybe it’ll help me with my voice-overs.

      Yeah, I’m looking for the easy way. It never works, but, hope springs eternal and all that.

        Why You Can’t Smoke Weed 

        Have you ever wondered why a bunch of hard drinking assholes banned weed. Well, I found this explanation for why marijuana is prohibited:

        In 1929, the feds put a man by the name of Harry Anslinger in charge of the Department of Prohibition. But alcohol prohibition had been an abysmal failure, that made alcohol more popular, made gangsters rich and drove up the crime rate.

        So, admitting failure, the government ended prohibition, which left Harry Anslinger in charge of a huge government department with nothing to justify it’s continued existence.

        Fearing he would lose his nice comfy job, with it’s pay and power, Mr Anslinger, who, up until this point, had not only not considered cannabis problem but had gone on record as saying that “there is no more absurd fallacy” than the idea it makes people violent, suddenly reversed his stance and began telling anybody who would listen that cannabis was evil.

        This is what he said would happen if you smoked cannabis. First, you will fall into “a delirious rage.” Then you will be gripped by “dreams of an erotic character.” Then you will “lose the power of connected thought.” Finally, you will reach the inevitable end-point: “Insanity.”

        This change of heart was accompanied by a massive government financed propaganda blitz, which included the release of the ever popular “Reefer Madness.” (Which will always be remembered as one of the worst movies ever produced.)

        So, at the end of the day, Harry Anslinger’s power grew, contractors and politicians profited and a whole bunch of knuckle draggers got to keep their badges.

        This is the way our government works. Fuck right or wrong; it’s always all about the Benjamins.

          I’m running on empty this morning. I couldn’t sleep last night. Assorted pain and a mind that wouldn’t slow down kept me awake until 1:30 or 2am, so I doped myself up and just lay there.

          I don’t sleep when I do that, I just zone out, so I’m still tired when I get out of bed. But at least I get a little rest.

          So here I am pretending to work, too tired to concentrate, with a head that won’t do me the favor of exploding and a pair of eyes that hurt like a motherfucker. –And its my own damn fault.

          I did a friend a favor and wound up involved in something that was really none of my business. But, me being me, I chewed out her boss, threatened some security guard and got my cute little butt 86’d from the property.

          –Now I get to talk to the labor commission, because she’s filing against her supervisor and I get to “testify” or whatever they call it.

          In the mean time the guy we hired to do a new website and promote it, is relying solely on pretty pictures with no words and no alt tags, all the while telling the boss he knows SEO. –But until he gets his promotion going we won’t know if he’s good enough to make us any money. –So I sit and wait.

            marriage 

            Marriage is like a deck of cards:
            In the beginning, all you need is two hearts and a diamond.
            But by the end, you’ll wish you had a fucking club and a spade.
