a friend told me that livejournal is disabling certain accounts that have remained inactive, so I am here to post to make sure that that does not happen.
ironically, while I started this livejournal almost 10 years ago, I'm actually now about to go back to the same library where I wrote my first ever journal entry. only instead of using their computers because at the time I did not have one of my own, I'm going to borrow CD's to add to my awesome, now over 12,000 songs, collection.
Pliny the Elder is on tap! at the Grey Lodge Pub in the Northeast section of Philadelphia. it was tapped around 10 PM this Saturday night. it was a half keg that was tapped but don't expect this beer to last long. they tapped a half keg of it at Capones last Thursday. tap time at 11:30 AM and it didnt last longer than 6 PM that evening. not sure how busy Grey Lodge was this Saturday night for the 4 hours of remaining business but word of the Elder has already been spread and combined with the Grey Lodge's already successful Sunday brunch starting at 11 AM......but honestly, I don't expect this keg of one of the finest beers IN THE WORLD to last long into the afternoon. so get it while it's pouring!
PLINY THE ELDER!!!!!!
it was two years ago today that my dad passed away.
How I feel:
the new George A. Romero?
seriously, guy is fucking phenomenal! stop producing movies and stick to directing! please! he hasn't directed a movie since Scrapbook in 2000 and Deadwood Park (2007) was just incredible! his horror vision and the way he depicts it in his cinematography can't be topped!
I finally cancelled the premium channels with my cable service and am using the money saved for a Netflix account (finally, I know, really!) I'll be saving $30 a month on the cable bill and the Netflix will only cost me $14 a month, why I didn't do this before I don't know! it's not like I ever watch TV cuz there is nothing ever on it that I'd want to watch, and I can still watch comedy central and stuff on-demand as well as FearNET.
anyway, so I got one of those 1 month free trials and plan on using it as much as possible.
so far I've put 6 movies in my queue.
I'm always looking for more suggestions. anyone who has read this journal knows what I like
so far I have
Savage Harvest 2
I Spit on Your Corpse
Severed Head Network 2
Meat Market 2
All Night Long Vol 1 (the only movie of the 6 that I've already seen but I own 2 and would like to watch all 3 in order again)

Daisy freaked out pretty bad last night. she was chewing her rawhide bone in bed whilst I was watching Creepshow 2. I reached over to pet her head and I guess she got "food/toy aggressive" and growled and bit my hand. nothing serious just a little slice on my index finger. as soon as she did it she knew she fucked up. she put down her bone and just sat in bed quivering and shaking, her head down and her ears back. she seriously looked like she wanted to kill herself like "omg I'm so sorry I can't believe I bit you why the fuck did I do that I'm so sorry". |
right now I'm about to take her out to Wissahickon Park for a nice hiking adventure.

|» two catastrophic blade injuries|
the end results of the game sucked for me, but man this whole series of events where Downies skate accidentally slices the linesmans throat open (60 stitches and a broken jaw) and then all hell breaks loose. and as there is blood gushing (I mean gushing, literally a trail of blood everywhere he went) from the linesmans throat, he's still trying to break up the fights while the other refs are trying to stop him from getting involved which meant there was nobody there to stop the fights!|
another crazy event. Zednik's throat gets sliced by his own teammate, Jokinen. you might not all be able to watch this. well actually the cameras cut away it was so gruesome. he severed (almost completely severed!) an artery. they said that when he was not covering his throat with his glove blood was spurting a whopping 15 feet! what's most amazing is that the guy obviously knew his life was in danger (if he was anywhere but a professional sporting event he'd probably be dead) and had the peace of mind to rush himself over to the bench and get immediate medical attention. they were able to put the artery back together and he'll be fine, but wow. and to think that that after the surgery was over, his first question was "when can I play again". amazing.

was walking Daisy in the park late at night. a stray dog comes up to us and I let Daisy play with him. Daisy hasn't really had the opportunity to play with many other dogs one-on-one like that because most other dog owners get scared cuz she's a pitbull and all. Daisy actually played really nice with him though. I was proud. she even let him sniff her.....well you know what. |
anyway, it was finally time to go and the dog followed us all the way home. I didn't know what else to do so I took it in my backyard and took some pictures of it and posted it on a few sites hoping that someone would recognize it. then I went back inside to get it some food and when I went back outside, I saw him in the neighbors yard! soon it was hopping their fence into their adjoining neighbors yard, and from there, it continued on down the line.
I even took Daisy for another walk hoping to see it, but no such luck.
now I just feel so bad. I was just hoping it would hang around until 8 AM. then I don't know what I'd do. take it to the shelter, hope that it's family had enough sense to contact them and see if anyone had dropped their dog off?
anyway, it's all pointless cuz the dog is gone now. and I feel bad for both it and it's family. fuck shit fuck!
here's a picture of the poor guy
( Read more...Collapse )
a Pita. a fairly expensive breed of dog if I understand correctly. there's no way this dog was just abandoned.
what an awesome day. I could die a happy man today.|
