That chocolate donuts and orange Gatorade don't taste good when consumed together. What have you figured out recently?

I love Arizona Green Tea, but not while eating any sweets.

I noticed, if you eat something sweet when drinking Arizona Green Tea, it spoils the taste of the drink...

Sweet treats take away the sweet taste of the drink and that sucks big time. heh

The donut shop near my studio closes at 5pm....

That should be outlawed. Donut shops must stay open 24 hrs.

I have one of those super wallmarts near my house that has EVERYTHING in it...supermarket, hair cutter, bank, mcdonalds, etc.

It is the most amazing place to send a band when you want to get rid of them for a little while.

Oh, it's open 24 hours. (i've made a few 4am cd-r runs )

Today I learned that if you buy a cheap (under $10) two handled kite from Woolworths, described as a 'stunt kite' you can centralise the attachment at the front of it to use just ONE cord and get on with a dopy, leasurley kite flying session without the risk of divebombing other folks enjoing the park!

Stunt kite?

F**k that!

How about an old fashioned - "it stays up" - kite?

Waz wrong wid dat?



heh

Next week we try the old "doubling the cord length" with the unused cord / handle. Followed by the "f**k it, it only cost $10 we can get another one" routene when the wind drops and the cord is too long to wind it back in time to save it from kite eating trees...

Recording smart, attractive girls doing vocals is WAY more fun a room full of guys recording heavy rock.

And so is going out with the girl after youre done for the night, especially when things go well.......

That is pretty cool, but that could turn into a disaster. Be careful man. Oh, and good luck with it.

I also discovered the hard way to ask a cover band what songs they play before they go on. I've blown quite a few set lists by not asking them and I end up playing CD's during set breaks that contain quite a few songs from the list.

Someone once said that you learn something new everyday... what did I discover yesterday? It's a really really really small world. A girl that I just started dating used to date a guy that my best friend (who is a girl) dated.

I've discovered that, contrary to popular opinion, peanut butter is not a reliable cure for cotton mouth.

The only real cure for cotton mouth I've found is green tea. I prefer the Arizona and I get it by the case whenever I can, which isn't too often.

Celery is good for cotton mouth too. I learned this from my Catholic High school physics teacher who used to start each class chomping on a stalk of celery. He was a dead head who also happened to get a 1600 on his SATs, graduate at the top of his class from RIT and smke from a six foot long bong daily.

My personal fav for curing cotton mouth was beer... good beer... lots of it! .... dfegad....

For me it went like this:

Cotton mouth = too stoned
Too stoned = sheer panic (no fun)
Panic (was) = I can't breath, I need to get to an emergency room or die
Cure (was) = 2 x double wiskies + a pint drunk in oh, under 2 mins

Too much pot always felt good as it was 'wareing off' but never 'during'.



Glad I gave drugs & booze up

Better to give up drugs altogether than to keep doing bad ones with too much paranoia factor. Best solution is to just give up on the cheapo dime bags.tut

Not recently, but I discovered once that even I can dance like a posessed monkey to the Grateful Dead. I don't like their music, I don't care for the 'deadhead' culture that once plagued them, and the only way it happened was that I had never been so stoned in all my life. I had done 25 of the biggest possible bong hits I could manage, and the weed was something special. According to a witness, I danced for 3 hours without stopping.

Same party, same episode of stoned-ness, in the hands of a capable puppeteer, a paper frog with rotating joints doing acrobatics between two sticks was the funniest thing I ever saw for a good solid hour of maniacal laughter.

I realized yeah, it is possible to get far too stoned.

I don't know, telling this story in person usually gets a person laughing. Here, I'm probably just making an ass of myself. But what the hey.

That placeing a beer in front of my rack gear is a no no , i grabed some patch cabels and it fell foward releasing a splash on my bbe sonic crapulizer. Ahh .....
I allso noiticed its better to get stoned after all your mics are set up and cabels laid out and levels to. Because i realized that if i get to stoned it takes like 15 min to set up one mic.(lol)

I really try to avoid putting drinks on top of racks for that very reason. I always leave them on the floor and if there's a top it stays on because spills can and will happen.

I learned when to leave a situation.

This Friday night just passed, at 8pm I had finished a session and was due to meet some friends for a birthday drink in central London. So I took a shower and went to the local Turkish barbers to get a quick haircut. In the barber chair by the front window / door was a familiar figure, a bull necked 'gangster' looking Turkish guy. I had seen him in there several times; he commanded a lot of attention when in there… With him was another 'heavy' who took a great deal of time macho preening his hair in the mirror while his gangster friend was being given a lengthy haircut / bull neck shave whatever it takes to give him his 'drill sergeant' tough guy haircut.

Anyhow.

I am two chairs away from him and half way through my number 2 buzz cut (I do have hair despite the odd avatar photo) when I realise the gangster is being attacked in his chair… Suddenly there is a LOT of shouting. I stand up (with half a haircut and wearing the apron given to protect my clothes from hair) to witness 8 guys pile in through the door at high speed, screaming, at least 3 with baseball bats to attack the tough guy. In seconds he is on the floor of the barbers, screaming in a foetal position as he is ceaselessly and speedily beaten by the very aggressive and angry mob.

At this time a message to my brain started to get through saying 'door is blocked by ongoing attempted murder, look for alternate exit from situation'.

I ran to the back of the shop. I found a bolted door - IT BECAME UNBOLTED AND OPEN VERY QUICKLY! I found myself in a yard; my way out of it blocked by an 8-foot chain fence. NO PROBLEM! I ripped off my haircut bib and I SAILED over that fence in no time WHAT-SO-EVER! (I wasn’t alone in the idea, so did two other customers) I was then in the alleyway my studio is located. So making sure first that I hadn't been followed by any of the attackers, I locked myself in! I didn’t emerge until I heard sirens.

Then, I walked down the street and found another open barbers to get the other half of my haircut!

Hair-raising!

I have yet to discover the condition of the gangster, walking back from my second attempt at a haircut; I did see his friend sitting up in the ambulance with a bandaged head. He must have taken a whack as well. But the fact that the ambulance wasn't speeding off seemed rather…. Ominous.

I had a pleasant birthday celebration evening with friends afterwards.
