I just found a couple boxes of Me

Set up the music room in the house. All of my amps, flyers, lyrics, CD's, records, cassettes are all in one burnable location.

I thought I was out or lost several things that I was surprised to find. A 100 Self Destruckt/Yates Kids splits, Bitchslap 7 " and my most proud release, The URBN DK/Bitchslap split. I might redo the cover art just because I did such a cheesy job on the original.

Retail Therapy

Sometimes shopping can cure everything. It provides a great distraction while also offering inspiration to an upcoming project for which your vision may not have reached completion. Two stores that often have a few surprises for me are Restoration Hardware and Z Gallerie. After a recent trip, I found the following pieces of goodness.

This Apothecary beverage dispenser would look amazing on the bar filled with Blood Orange Margaritas

My affinity for skulls places this one in high regard. Imagine looking into a reaper's robe to have this guy smiling back at you

I see this crystal Octopus as part of a sea fairing fortune teller display on top of a column covered in silk. Lit from beneath with a color changing LED awash in green, purple and red.   

My mind began to spin at all the Steampunk ideas that I could do with all of the different gears they had on display. A collection of these 34" babies need to be on my wall all hooked up to motors.  

Upon working my way over to Restoration Hardware, my skull desires were once again intrigued. I have been trying to figure the best way to incorporate a forest of  Wailing Trees with my own flavor. Branches remind me of antlers and horns so why not incorporate these into that concept. 

My Steampunk gears continued to spin at RH with their pieces as well 

I long for the day my loot can fill a treasure chest as large as this 62" beast. 

What are some of your favorite places for retail inspiration?

The Call of The Tide

While relaxing in the shade of my beautiful Blood Orange tree this morning, a random thought entered my mind. Now either of those occurrences probably do not shock any of you but I had to start this blog post somewhere.

I had an urge to take my little girl on an exploration of tide pools. So as any overly cyber connected father would do, I grabbed my phone and searched out my options. The fine folks over at Double The Adventure, a site that points many great activities for some California family fun, just so happened to identify Little Corona Del Mar Beach as the best bet.

So off I went to determine the tide schedule and loaded up the wife and kid in the Ontario Speedwagon for our days activities.


I now present to you a moment with me while lost in a lens...

We all knew that free food will bring in the drunks but who knew that Taco Nite came from a mine? (No Place like home p1 4)

Continuing my adventures that were started HERE, this news story comes from the lovely portion of my homeland known as Antigo


June 3, 2011

The proposed Gogebic Taconite iron ore mine will generate approximately $1.4 billion in total state and local tax revenue over the expected 35-year life of the first phase of the mine, according to the Preliminary Tax Impact study recently completed by NorthStar Economics, Inc. — an consulting and research firm specializing in analysis of the Wisconsin economy.

The report, funded by Gogebic Taconite, said construction and operation of the proposed mine would create long-term direct and indirect tax revenues for local communities and the state.

If plans and permits are approved, the mine would be located about six miles west of Mellen in Ashland County. It would be situated on the south side of Highway 72, which runs between Hurley and Mellen.

"This Preliminary Tax Impact study clearly shows the extremely positive long-term economic benefit of the proposed mine," Bill Williams, president of Gogebic Taconite, said.

"The $1.4 billion in taxes generated by the mine will be an economic boost to both the Gogebic region and the state of Wisconsin for generations."

Top 10 Halloween Sex Positions according to

As stated in the title, originally appeared on I had to copy it just because...

This article is intended for entertainment purposes only; its content should not be taken as practical advice.

The time has come to breathe new life into Halloween -- to replace the confectionary-fueled fun you enjoyed as a kid with the pheromone-laced action you want as an adult. After all, you probably won’t be spending All Hallows' Eve donning masks and egging cars outside the house, so shouldn't you at least be releasing your inner demons inside the bedroom? This is something that is easily done with the help from some evil Halloween sex positions. So, while we’ll happily leave the Kama Sutra to hippies, yoga nerds and people who treat scented candles as a lifestyle, those of us more partial to dancing with devils in the pale moonlight will be generating shrieks and moans this year courtesy of the following Halloween sex positions.

No.10 Ghost Rider
Before you start writing us letters about this one, we want to make it clear that we’re not suggesting you set your partner’s head on fire while she’s faced the other way in doggy style -- that would fall under a "Mike Tyson Sex Positions." No, the Ghost Rider is much more humane, though slightly tougher on the eyes. The way it works is that when the female is riding the male, the man puts a white sheet over her head -- all while resisting the overwhelming urge to cue up the Ghostbusters theme on his stereo.

No.9 Grave Robber
The key to this Halloween sex position is finding a successful mix between the sexual thrill of robbery and the somewhat unappealing odor of putrid human innards. The way it works is that you wait for your girlfriend to fall asleep, then you ransack your laundry hamper and surround her with dirty, dank clothes to mimic the atmosphere of a grave. Once you’ve buried your corpse -- er, partner -- you give her the unexpected thrill of luring her back into consciousness with oral sex.

No.8 Tail In The Crypt
Let’s face it: The first thing that comes to mind when you project sexual deviancy on a high-pitched decomposing corpse is Michael Jackson; but don’t worry, our carnal take on the famous Tales from the Crypt TV series is much more legal. In this Halloween sex position, you and your partner make your way under your bed (the “crypt”) and engage in anal sex (the “tail”) -- we leave it up to you (the “crypt keeper”) to decided whether or not you’d like to annoyingly stimulate your partner with scratches to her back.

No.7 The Scarecrow
Aside from Michael Hutchence, a little bondage never (seriously) hurt anyone, and this sex position is no different. One partner is strapped to a cross-brace and must act as if they have no skeletal system; the other partner gets to enjoy the benefits of having someone strapped to a cross-brace in front of them. That involves groping, teasing, prodding, and just about anything else you want, just as soon as you get those cumbersome overalls unhooked. Best of all, when you are done, there’s all that straw to help clean up.

No.6 Bobbing For Boobies
This sex position is pretty self-explanatory: Fill up a bathtub with two or more breasts, stick your hands behind your back, and bob your head in until you catch yourself an endorphin rush.

No.5 Sleepy Bat
Courtesy of the public education system and some unpleasant personal experiences, we are extremely aware that it is unwise to put unprotected genitals anywhere near a sleeping bat -- that is, unless, your partner has assumed the role of a blind, flying carnivore for the evening. In this Halloween sex position, your partner will require a stable pull-up bar or shower pole on which to hang upside down. Once she is comfortably locked in, position your mouths at each others' genitals and engage in 69-ing until the sunlight comes up (or the blood rushing to her head causes your partner to pass out).

No.4 Night Of The F*Cking Dead
Squirming, convulsing and moaning isn’t something that only happens at Jack in the Box -- case in point: “Night of the F*cking Dead.” In this ingenious brain-dead Halloween sex position, partners start off in a standard missionary position, but once the male has comfortably entered the female, that’s when things really get dumb -- er, fun. Specifically, neither partner is allowed to use their arms or legs to support themselves during intercourse, leaving both sex-starved individuals to be grunting, struggling and shaking in order to get off.

No.3 Monster Mash
Only a blindfolded eunuch could watch Godzilla movies and not get riled up by the overwhelming sexual tension between Mothra and the radioactive lizard. That’s why we’re suggesting you and your partner try out the “Monster Mash” this Halloween. The premise is simple, but potentially expensive, depending on the cost of the outfit you’re willing to invest in. Go down the costume shop, pick out costumes for you and your partner, then cut out sections around the genitals in each costume; unless you’re Paris Hilton, we assume you possess the mental powers to deduce the nasty act that should follow.

No.2 Pumpkin Head
Jack-o’-lanterns are supposed to act as guides for lost spirits in the night. But in our twisted minds, they act as beacons for downright nasty things. While your girl is painting her face with orange and black makeup, you’ll cut a hole in a box to act as the table. Your girl will kneel down with her pumpkin-looking head poking out of the hole. You’ll stand in front of her, aim for the gaping black grin and put a candle of a different kind into the mouth of this jack-o’-lantern.

No.1 Witch's Brew
Wart of mute child, eye of albino newt… unless you’re Prince or Charlie Sheen, this stuff probably doesn’t turn you on. But here for Halloween is the first-ever sexy witch's brew. Though swingers would probably have an easier time accomplishing this one, a drunk girlfriend and the girl she kissed in college should suffice. The key to this position is all in the setup (and the alcohol): Fill a hot tub with brown food coloring, novelty eyeballs, Gothic candles, and two revved-up bisexual females. The bonus in this one is the post-witch's brew shower, in which you’ll either get to clean your partners or sit back and watch evil take its course.

2011 Theme

Every year we hear people say there is no way we can one up the decor we put together for our annual Halloween extravaganza yet we have yet to let anyone down. All I know is that I see so many amazing home haunts put together by the fellow posters at Halloween Forum that I have to only laugh and say just wait and see. Just as I learned when I was just a wee pirate, there will always be someone bigger (which is no small statement since I am of a rather large stature myself) and that will motivate me to strive harder to silence the naysayers.

Luckily for me, I have an amazing partner who somehow caught the BooBug as well. As she increases her tool dexterity, so does our display. If only I could find a better way to balance the BooBug so it does not take 6 months of hating my guts as we (mainly she) builds and destroys a corner lot filled with all things spooky.

So what do we have in store for you this year?

Well, the amazing Miss Julie has requested an enchanted forest so on this mission I must go. My challenge was how do I incorporate all my pirate wares into a forest? We determined that New Orleans has water, forests and pirates that could all be included in a "Boo Bayou".

Bring on the voodoo, Spanish Moss and Zydeco because we are spreading the contagion of a ragin' Cajun and won't be stoppin' til it's Fat Boosday.

I had a frenema

It took me some time but I finally deactivated my FB account.

If you were on my friends list, don't take it personal

The reason I started this whole blog thing awhile back was to break myself away from the addiction to the evil known as Facebook and attempt entertaining myself (and any not so innocent bystanders) through my own venue. I will once again share with the world everything you didn't need to know about me as well as the little gems of irrelevance I discover on my path to find the ends of the internet.
