I had a discussion (friendly but with subtle undertone) about heat with the landlord. He's yappin' away about the price of heat and so on and so forth. He tells me it costs him x amount of money per month, blah blah blah. He also says if I waste heat that I'd pay the difference. Shyeah, right. You advertised HEAT AND HOT WATER INCLUDED BUCKO. Whatever. His heating costs are not my concern. If he decides to pull "I need extra rent to cover heat costs", we're gonna have a problem - and their better not be.
When I went out to get some foodstuffs earlier today I noticed that every bird in Bangor decided to take a dump on the hood of my truck. Had to stop by a gas station and rake the windshield over with the squeegee a few times. Got most of the poop off the windshield. As far as the hood is concerned I'll have to take it to the wash. Curses!

I've acquired two things concerning the work situation: Jack and S--t. And Jack left town. You know, it's not like I'm being overly picky when it comes to work. I have applied for more or less any type of job I think I could do and no one calls. Depressing.
Pop has encountered a hurdle. The closing will not occur today, but, it will occur next week so it's a small hurdle. I also have to get a key to the house from the realtor because I'm in charge of getting Pop's stuff in the house and supervise when the movers show up, et cetera.
I wrote what is possibly one of the best rock songs I've ever written last night. Damn, does it sound good. Unfortunately it's too "light" for the band I'm currently in, but I will definitely use it on a side project - no doubt about it.
No one, I repeat, no one should not know who "Weird Al" Yankovic is. I visit his site periodically. I get a good chuckle out of some of the things he puts there.
On his news page, he's got AL on iTunes! that starts off with "Do you hate owning CD's? Are they just too round and three-dimensional for you?" I like that because how can something be "too" round.
At the bottom of the news page is the poster Read along with Al. Why is this funny? Well, the American Library Association thought that a long-haired guy with a crazy look on his mug would get kids to read - that's why. I seriously may buy it just for the comic factor. And if in fact it does get kids (or anyone else for that matter) to read, all the better.
I once read an interview on the 'net some college kid did with Al. He thought that Al would be some crazy kook that was a few sandwiches short of a picnic. He wasn't. Al is probably one of the most unfunny guys in real life because all of his parody material is manufactured to be funny. I'm not insulting Al here - far from it. Personally I think the guy is a genius and one of the best musicians I've ever heard. The point is that just because someone acts crazy on television (and in the movies) doesn't mean they are. After all, the guy is a Cal PolyTech grad - he definitely isn't stupid by any stretch of the imagination (although he would dare you to be stupid.. heh)
Go check out Weird Al. He is a genius of our time.
Yes, I think this pedal sucks...

This is not that big of a deal once you know how to do it.

Oh, no... not another Norlin era Gibson.
It's real-deal Fender vintage, it's available, and there's one other rather nice advantage to owning one of these.
When you want a Bigsby vibrato on a genuinely well-built guitar for not a lot of money, you go Gretsch.
There is a whole lot of wow to this Les Paul.
Is this a classic, or is it tacky? Let's talk about that.
