Wow,  just wow. 

Mostly I want to thank all the sloths that made this possible…

Not the scary Goonies kind but the cute furry ones from the Amazon that I’m sure wont rape the hell out of Chunk the moment the cameras stop rolling.

Holy Poop Over 6000 Views!!!

Wow, for a blog that’s erratically updated, has a schitzophrenic core subject matter, almost no pictures, almost no punctuation, rare capitalization, little capitulation, written by an intermittently unemployed, unattracctive, overweight, oft depressed burnout former musician prone to run on sentances… this little puppy hasn’t done to bad for himself.

Thanks as always everybody for checking out the blog; I’ll get back into the swing of regular posting as soon as things settle down a bit.

At the moment my day has unfortunately  focused around bodily fluids between 2 children with stomach virus, 4 cats with questionable litterbox aim and the ubiquitus ferret.

Sigh…

At least random people on the internet care…

Chimpanze on a Segway… Because in the worst of times we need to be reminded at exactly how awsome the world can be sometimes.

Bite me Bill, I’m a Linux guy now.

Posted in rants on August 31, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

Hello all,

After many years of threatening I’ve broken down and switched to Linux (Ubuntu) as the operating system in my home.

Not to be some nutty M$ bashing “true believer” in Linux, but…

On the very modest “hand me down” PC that my drummer gave me, and without hardware upgrades, the machine is easily running twice as fast as before.

As for ease of use, I didn’t even mention in particular the differences in interface & my kids were up an on as soon as I gave them their logins.

I just couldn’t be happier with my machine right now and much thanks to my good friend Noel for taking care of it for me.

It’s His Majesty’s Birth Day, Celebrate Accordingly

Another year I’ve mysteriously outsmarted the reaper and get to sit here with a nice cup of tea and the determination to do little but play my new bass and hopefully see some friends.

Obviously you all know what’s been going on the past few weeks and your compassion and friendship in my time of need is the best gift i could have gotten…

Though I could use a new amp and a more relible computer…lol…

Thank you all so much my Lummoxcateers,

Celebrate yourselves accordingly and with abandon!

I wish to thank all of you for your words of condolences and well wishes; they have helped me so very much as I’ve been dealing with my Mother’s demise.
I hope I never seemed needy , but again you all have helped so much so far.
I know it will take time to deal with all this but I am eternally grateful to have been bless…ed with so many wonderful friends.
I very truely love you all.

I’ve started going through my mom’s things with my Aunt & grandma. It’s so hard, we can only survive a couple of hours at a time before something hits us and the waterworks start.

I found a long letter my mom wrote to me when I was 17… I couldn’t get through a paragraph though I kept it.

In a few hours we go back to f…inish, wish me luck in keeping it together.

as always thanks so much to you all.

i feel dumb saying this but… It has only now sunk in that my mother has died.
Hell I was right next to her when it happened, I saw it.
I guess all the running around with funerary bullshit was a distraction but the more that gets done the more real it gets, and the harder everything else gets.
I don’t know I’m just t…rying to fuck up as little as possible as I get things done.
wish me luck guys & as always thanks

As of today I’m officially overwhelmed & more than a bit nuts, the funeral bullshit is finally taken care of (barring a breif interlude where I was convinced they lost my mother’s body at the crematorium but that is a story I’m not ready to write) the kids go back to school monday and we havent finished the back to school stuff, the funeral home is still taking forever to handle things so when teh urn is finally ready I’m picking it up myself because I dont trust that load of royal fuckwits that run the cemetary.
Oddly enough the final straw for me to totally lose it was my kids breaking a brand new guitar cable that I just spent $25 bucks on yesterday afeter I warned them not to….
I’m so angry I’m shaking —the fact that I went yet another night without sleeping doesn’t help either.
as always wish me luck I really need it

My Mom Just entered Hospice

Posted in rants on August 6, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

Much like my father did a year ago. my mom fell ill and within 24 hours her hospitilisation went from ulcers to stomach cancer spread to her liver, to having breast cancer added to it as well as kidney and the majorityof her chest cavity.

She gets moved to the Hospice ward tomorrow and I’d by lying if I said I was reay for any of it.
