Finally Wrapped the Movie & Other news

Posted in art on June 29, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

Last Thursday I finally wrapped the shooting of that movie I’ve been working on; unfortunately I managed to trip and fall during my last shot and managed to break my left toe, as well as sprain my right wrist, left wrist, elbow and shoulder (my left arm is still close to useless) and of course the next day managed to break 2 toes on my right foot rather grotesquely on a scooter left by my children in the hallway.

On the up side I am finally over that bout of pneumonia despite a lingering, nagging cough and my home computer is still dead and I am still unemployed unfortunately.

Further bullitins as events warrant.

Is it August 23rd yet? How about now?

Posted in kids on June 11, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

my children are home for summer vacation.

they have already been so abysmally horrible that I have already began the countdown to school resuming.

here is a bit of advice, reproducing is the worst fucking idea you could ever have & I’ll tell you why…

1. your genes aren’t that fucking special, get over yourself jackass

2. your children will certainly become hideous ungrateful monsters

3. overpopulation fuckface

4. the world we are leaving them is a ruined mess with only minutes left on the clock

5. children are sticky and covered in bacteria

8. you will never know a moment’s peace of happiness once they draw their first breath

9. the stupid little shits will probably reproduce (well before you feel like being a grandparemt shitsmear) as well

10. shitsmears

that was my puiblic service message of the day, now go out & get snipped before it’s too late.

Kingbiscuitpant’s Imperial Decree: Give “Van Halen III” a Second Chance!

Posted in music on June 9, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

Gregg and I were bemoning the fact that the world desperately needs a new Van Halen album & how the “guitar world” needs to be reminded exactly how amazing Eddie Van Halen’s playing is.

Fashion and band politics aside, I had been hungering for a new Van Halen album and remembered “Van Halen III” which I had lost several years ago and recently was reacquainted with.

People and critics panned the album but Gregg and I both really dug it.  They weren’t trying to be exactly the same as they were with Sammy Hagar, they (like they did when Sammy manned the helm) used the new singer to lead the way to a new sound and a new sensibility allowing Eddie to do some of the most sophisticated and mature playing of his career.

I also had recieved Jeff Beck’s latest release at the same time as VHIII and could not help but to notice the similarities in tone and phrasing betwween the two. 

In any case it is an album worth listening to without predudice and with fresh ears.

I swear I drew this in a notebook in 8th grade!

The visage of this delightfully wonky bass I stumbled across online and I just love it.

It has that great 70’s tacky-retro-futuristic thing going on that reminds me of my aunt Lucille’s kitchen in her old house in the early 80’s. 

Eventually I will get around to a real post I’ve just been really busy with my job hunt.

Ferret interlude.

I have to admit the silly little amalgam of kitten and tube sock has a way of growing on you.

So much for my tough guy image.

However, I defy you to not be entertained by the sight of a ferret eating crunchy peanut butter.

I need a job.
