    So like 17 years ago or so i got some smashing pumpkins cd's from my buddy, random singles and such. Anyhow, i was looking in one of the few boxes of stuff i have left and found an old sleeve of 8 of them today. He was fairly surprised to see them to say the least.

    I gave up drinking completely and have also changed my diet drastically after I recently had a blood test done. Everything was essentially perfect apart from the blood sugar being a bit high again, so I've cut all crap from my diet, replacing it with fruit (vegetables were never a problem for me but I always tended to neglect fruit), and drinking only water and tea/coffee without sugar. My mind, body and personal life are all bettering from the changes and I feel great in myself now, too. I feel guilty eating a single M&M even!

    I am seeing Elton John in less than a week!

    He's the last of my favorite artists that I still haven't seen live. I can't even begin to explain how excited I am or how much this means to me. I cannot freaking wait.

    Anyone else get this email from Plex today?
    Hi allegate, you’ve done an great job getting your Plex Media Server up and running and adding your media. Nice job.

    We noticed you haven't been playing a lot of media lately. No worries, we just wanted to remind you how easy it is to enjoy your content on a ton of devices, anywhere.
    So wait, they can see what I'm watching?
    Earlier today we sent an email to a small percentage of Plex users who (we thought) hadn't used Plex in a while, urging them to give it another shot. Seemed harmless enough, except it turns out we messed it up and ended up including a completely random mix of users (among them, some of our most active and beloved users).

    To make matters worse, the wording in the email seemed to imply that it was being sent based on what folks are watching in Plex, which was most definitely not the case. We do not know or track what is in anyone’s library, and we do not know or track what people are playing. In order to make Plex work, we do keep track of things like user login times and when Plex devices were last seen. And we do occasionally use this data to send targeted emails (e.g. to let specific people know about issues impacting certain devices or operating systems).
    Oh, ok then. :lol

    i haven't bought an instrument in 10 years. since my main collaborator and i are planning on playing some shows soon, and i'll be playing guitar, i thought it was about time to have a new guitar to play on stage. it's also the least i've ever paid for a new guitar, but (once i added a buzz stop and replaced the 9's with 10's) it sounds fantastic. really excited to get back on stage.

    The new Old 97s album cracked the top 10 on the billboard rock chart.
    And i just now realized this, but their last album got up to 30 on the 200.
    So this is crazy, but they are more popular now, 25 years in, than they ever have been.

    Love the concept, and that cover art is definitely very well done. Congrats, man.

    We just passed a state budget that includes a biking / walking path that will pretty much span the whole damn state (was rumored to be one of the first things to be cut from the budget).

    Oh, and just some other little thing...free tuition to state colleges for kids of parents earning under $100k a year.

    Yeah, taxes are kind of shit in NY, but I like where they're going.

    This guy has made it to the final 6 candidates of the Québec version of The Voice, called La Voix (duh).

    You'll have to click the link to listen to how AWESOME he is (and I don't want to spoil the surprise). I have never been so happy about a show like that. I hope he'll win!

    And so many people are pissed that it's even more awesome. I'm going to vote for him.

    my roommate in providence had it. mainly torso twitches (for lack of a better term -- he hurt his neck and back because of them) and slamming whatever he had in his hands on tables or counters.

    hope you get what you need.

    Oh, mine isn't as bad as it used to be. I'm just wanting to help any way I can because kids are fucking little pricks and middle school/high school fucking sucked and I'd like there to be a real treatment that actually works for people who have it super bad.

    actually, it'd just be great if people weren't sexual predators, but i guess that's aiming too high above the cesspool of humanity :/

    I'm cheered up by the fact that I didn't just wind up in the hospital (or worse)...

    I was driving down the highway, when some giant chunk of metal seemed to fall out of the car in front of me. It happened so fast there was nothing I could possibly do to avoid it, and it bounced under my car and slammed up into the undercarriage so hard that my feet went numb. If I had been driving a few feet back it could have ricocheted through my windshield and ripped my head off.

    Instead, I watched my life flash before my eyes, and just said "woah" while thinking of the myriad of ways that could have gone south.

    The wife and I have finally found a tenacious advocate that is willing to fight for my daughter and her education.

    I'll be damned if she gets shoved to the side and placed in an all-disability school.

    (I realize I've never talked about my daughter's disability before and doing so now may cause questions; not sensitive in the area).
