I am horrible at wrapping gifts currently. It's my nephew's 9th birthday today and my wrapping of this funky ball for the pool is like a 3D Picasso. Something to work on to be sure.
:D

My son's friend's mom runs a daycare. The other day she was going on about how women should stay home. I had to roll my eyes. Those moms that don't stay home are the ones providing you with a paycheck.

An idea for Dyson's next invention. A dryer that doesn't need a lint trap.

I mean I think it's worth it's own thread but after ten years of making one I've been proved otherwise. Maybe if I phlogged it people would care?

This happened yesterday. I was unable to attend. But, by all accounts, it was incredible. The sheer volume of people in the water is amazing.

Sometimes I have wine remorse. I'll pick what I think I feel like having, open it, and then be annoyed while drinking it that I didn't choose another making for a not enjoyable experience.
I'm having that now with this Rose. Should've stuck with chianti.

Thanks for listening. :)

Also, sometimes I click on the little wheel next to new logins thinking they would be a recently banned phooker just to see they've been here for 15 or more years with 100-400 posts. I wonder if they've been coming every single day for the last 15 years, skimming all the threads and only having 100 or so things to say....like, is today the day a topic you are interested in appeared after 12 years and is the topic that got you to post really nutter butters?
(Just used butter butters because I have cookies on the mind)

I know wine remorse as well as any - EASY SOLUTION: Second Bottle! I will sometimes open the second bottle and put the first aside hoping it will either a) hit the spot better after enjoying the first or b) i am now buzzed so any wine is better.

Doctors find 27 contact lenses in woman's eye

Quote:
(CNN) — A 67-year-old woman scheduled for routine cataract surgery in November thought it was just dry eye and old age causing her discomfort, she told her surgeons.

But what doctors at Solihull Hospital in the UK found to be the real cause of her discomfort was much more concerning: 27 contact lenses, stuck in the woman's right eye in a "blue mass."

* * *

Richard Crombie, a consultant anesthetist at the hospital, was beginning to numb her eye for surgery when he found the first cluster of contacts.

"He put a speculum into the eye to hold the eye open as he put the anesthetic in, and he noticed a blue mass under the top eyelid," Morjaria told CNN.

That mass was a clump of 17 lenses. The other 10 were discovered in an additional examination.

* * *

The woman had been wearing monthly disposable contact lenses for 35 years, but it's unclear how long they had been gathering in her eye. Sometimes, she told the surgeons, when she would try to remove a contact from that eye, she couldn't find it.

The patient had just figured she'd dropped it somewhere, Morjaria explained, but it was actually getting stuck in her eye with the others.

How? How do you go straight to the operating table without an eye doctor noticing this?
Fuck. Gross.

Lefsetz Letter...not really about Bieber and Scooter good read

The road kills.

Used to be you went on the road to promote the record.

Now you go on the road to make bucks.

Now let's not make this about Napster, or Spotify either. The truth is if you're winning on the road, you're making more dough in adjusted dollars than you were in the heyday of CDs. Sure, you've got expenses, but have you looked at ticket prices? And sponsorship?

But the road is a slog. It's like entering a tunnel. Ask me to go on the road and do the same thing 150 times in a row and there's no way. What's worse, even if you're flying private, staying at the best hotels, it's a grueling lifestyle. You get off stage and you can't calm down. Oftentimes you're with the same people you've hung with for years, and you're not a star in their eyes, it's all locker room all the time, and most musicians got into music to get out of the locker room. Then again, most people plying the boards today are not musicians.

This is not the Allman Brothers changing it up every night.

There are lighting cues and backups on hard drives, it's more akin to a Broadway show, but at least on the Great White Way you get to stay in one place and the people come to you.

Which is why Vegas is burgeoning. With tons of infrastructure, it's a good place for the people to come to you. Instead of moving on to a new city every day.

The road killed Kurt Cobain.

And it killed Chris Cornell too.

Cobain was in pain, his team should have said no go. But never mess with the power of money.

And do you really think that Cornell wanted to go on the road and play theatres? After playing arenas? No, he was doing it for the bucks.

I'm not saying there isn't a high, just that the other 22 hours of the day are long and tiring and you never get enough sleep and...

My most creative time is around midnight. Do you think I can fall asleep after writing? Absolutely not, I'm trashed today. But I run on inspiration and you've got to follow it. Which is why music is not a 9 to 5 job, why the musicians work late at night and wake up at noon. They live in an alternative universe, different from the hoi polloi, I love when it gets dark and the e-mail stops, when the traffic is gone and the world is my own. You've got to throw off convention to upset the apple cart. What I mean is art, when done right, not only reflects society, it questions and changes it. Which is why people want to go to the show anyway. To experience that high, to get close to the other, to get away from their mundane, humdrum lives.

A working stiff gives it their all and comes home at 6 or maybe even 7 or 8. And sure, in this connected world they might get disturbed thereafter via electronic communications. But an artist? They're firing all the time, from peak to peak, weekends are no different from weekdays, and when they show up to perform, they've got to be in top form. There are no off days when you're a performer, string them together and your career is trashed.

So, artists cope with dope.

There's all this talk about substances and inspiration. More it's a way to cope, to fall asleep, to calm down after the adrenaline rush. Performing a show is like skydiving. You're never completely calm, you're always gonna get that rush.

So Bieber goes around the world satisfying fans and feeding the machine, making money. But it's work. It's not some investor sitting at home watching the market, counting their money. You've got to get up and do it again. And you can't be a pretender. You've got to give it your all.

And it becomes too much.

A friend of mine toured with U2 and it took a year to recover. Truly.

It's great that these people can make so much money, but if you don't think there's a cost...

How much money do you need?

Well, in a world where titans fly private and own islands, everyone is envious, especially those on the fringe of that number, like entertainers. They're exposed to it, they want it. As do the percentage players, the managers and the agents.

Sometimes you've got to say no, to save yourself.

History is littered with acts that gave it all and then ended it all, whether directly or through misadventure.

Now if you want to go on the road, improvise, get drunk, get laid, see it as an experience, go ahead. Used to be by going to every town you reached people and spread the word, built your career. Most acts today build their careers online, the road is just a cleanup effort.

So kudos to Scooter and Justin for calling it quits.

The public be damned.

There's never enough to satisfy the public. They want all of you, until there's nothing left.
