Okay, it's time to buy a new computer. Any recommendations for a company reliable enough to make solid machines yet stupid enough to give me credit?

Alex Pardee just tweeted Frank Iero. It's a stretch, but it's still some Bert/Gerard!
Pot Luck Magazine call for submissions (repost)

Join the conversation around the table! Let's build community in defiance of impersonal commercialism. Modern magazines are glossy and full of focused little blurbs, but to get to any fun reading you first have to wade through pages of ads. In many magazines the articles are just thinly disguised advertisements themselves! Most magazines also present an unrealistic picture of our lives. "Working Moms: You CAN do it all!," "Dream Vacations for under $10,000!" and "25 ways to please your man in bed" don't reflect the conversations we have around the table, between the pews, or at the market. How do you find a magazine that encompasses the political discussions, the book recommendations, the nostalgic reminiscing about childhood, and the funny stories we share when we're seated around a communal dinner table? You create one!

Pot Luck Magazine is a new, quarterly print community to help meet the need for reality in publication. We want YOU to come share our table!

Please consider submitting poetry, stories, articles, art, photographs, recipes, columns, tips for living well, product reviews, and classifieds-- and anything else that reflects the kind of community YOU want to have. Issues will come out quarterly. May 30th is the last submission date for the first issue, to be published June 15th.

Classifieds $5 each. If you have a skill, craft, or service, we want you to share it with us!

Electronic submissions preferred. Send to with "Pot Luck Submission" in the subject line.

First issue is free for all contributors. Subscription is $15 for 4 issues. (This helps alleviate printing and mailing costs.) Spread the word!

Packing up the computer. I feel less naked when I'm naked. Offline for a day or two. Text me if you need me.

I would like to share a song in honor of the gentleman who pulled me over tonight, got bitchy when I corrected him, gave me a ticket anyway, and then condescended to me despite me being older, more educated, and not employed in a field often chosen by men who would have been drug dealers except they were confused by all the math.

by Operation Ivy

Do you have to force yourself with power and control
Do feel a need to live your life playing up a role
Intimidating people with your wall of sight and sound
You and your kind destroy our underground
All the happiness that you have destroyed
All the brutal tactics that you always employ
All the fucking bullshit when will it ever stop
The comparison is obvious: you're just a fucking cop
Officer - you act like an animal, you're out of control
Officer - what the hell is wrong with you
Wear a tie if you want to wear a uniform
Join the army if you want to conform
Tough guy big man do what you can
Whatever you destroy we'll create it again
All the happiness that you have destroyed
All the brutal tactics that you always employ
All the fucking bullshit when will it ever stop
The comparison is obvious: you're just a fucking cop
Officer - you act like an animal, you're out of control
Officer - what the hell is wrong with you


Whole album

The Used, Albany, April 21st. I've seen them more this year than I've seen most of my immediate family, but maybe I'll go.

Dan Savage: Here’s hoping that all straight folks everywhere one day realize that anti-gay ravers come in just two flavors: assholes who are externalizing their own internal struggles against homosexual desires (Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, Charlie Crist, Joseph Ratzinger, et al.) and assholes who are attempting to compensate for and/or draw attention away from their own moral shortcomings (David Vitter, Mark Sanford, John Ensign, Vic Toews, et al.).

I'm trying not to be such a stalker that he blocks me, but JSYK here are our demands for Travis Barker on this, the morning before they are recording:

1- Remind Tim Armstrong to update his Twitter.

2- Take a picture of Tim Armstrong playing the piano.

3- Tour this summer (with The Transplants, no one likes your other bands, no offense).

Last night I had a dream that Mike and I were cleaning the living room, throwing out everything that reminded us of us as a couple. I was playing a Rancid CD where, at one point, in between songs, Lars yells, "This is unforgivable!" I went into the kitchen to get some spray cleaner, and when I came back, Mike was changing the CD. I got mad, but he said, "I just want to play the Rancid CD that includes John Mayer."

The Used hanging heart is pretty cool. And never have I thought, Damn. That should have a bug in it.

Quick question - If Bert McCracken had a child, what would be name it? Male or female, it doesn't matter. I used David Bowie in another fic, so I don't want to use that again.

Can anyone recommend a poem to me with a theme about poverty? Not an emergency. Just trying to balance out the Rancid lyrics so I don't look completely unprofessional.

I know this is asking a lot, but my old computer can't run Premiere or similar programs anymore. If anyone has time to kill and is not easily offended, I would absolutely love an MP3 of the dialogue of this video from 21:05 to 21:17. It says, "Now listen you fucking cunt. I'm trying to be nice, you hear me? I should fucking kill you for how you betrayed me. [something] your fucking twat I will hang you by your tampon string. Now listen, and listen well."

Thank you.
