Thanks to Farcebook, these two articles about Finnish band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät came on to my radar:
Besides being awesome new (to me) enjoyable punk rock, I feel like it served as some sort of cosmic reminder, warning, or inspiration. Not only to me, but to everyone who happens to read this.
Not feeling a bunch of paragraphs today, so I will hit you with a bulleted list.
- Don’t ever let anyone tell you “no.” Don’t let anyone else set your limits. You can do whatever you set your mind to, and tell them to shove it.
- Don’t let anyone put you in a category. If you feel like you’re different because of your gender, race, orientation, religion, or a disability… own it, don’t let it own you.
- A little railing against convention, society, or any set standard is good for everybody. Punk rock can be all about a healthy expression of primal aggression.
- Learning about the lives of others who have things differently than you is incredibly enlightening.
- Someone with special needs like Down Syndrome or Autism with different abilities ought not be an object of derision. They have thoughts, feelings, and aspirations just like you. They get pissed off just like you. They rock just like yo
- Shattering expectations is the most badass thing you can do.
I’m sure there’s more, but you get my point. Notice little things like this in life. Be thankful for your insight. Be thankful that there are others out there reminding you to put forth your best effort. Learn something or learn about something often. Make some noise that gets heard.
Check out these videos.
I need to get my hands on some music & get a peep at this documentary. Anyone already have these cats on their radar? Tell me more!

OK, so TLC never got back to me about Missionaries Impossible (where Mormons & Jehovah’s Witnesses try to convert each other), but I will not let complete and total failure or lack of any interest in actually following up on these sorts of things keep me from writing a blog about my newest idea.
It’s called: You Drive Like an Ass!
(Hey, Shit My Dad Says made it to TV.)
All I’d need would be a car with cameras all over it. I could drive it around for a week and have enough footage for an entire season of shows. All I would have to do is drive the speed limit, and obey all traffic laws… then watch everyone around be driven completely insane by that type of apparently abnormal behavior.
I see things several times a day where people are breaking traffic laws that we all read in the book from driver’s ed, things that are unsafe, or just plain aggravating; Like flags on cars, or even worse… eyelashes-on-healights aggravating. Don’t even get me started on bicycles.
Get some people to edit it, you have a super low-cost hit. You wouldn’t even need a narrator. Just get some clips of Samuel L. Jackson swearing & we can edit them all in.
If we were in the movie Idiocracy (and don’t think we aren’t …really.), this would rival Ow My Balls!
Someone get on this, and send me the car and a royalty check.

My Batman logo guitar made it to #1 on a list of geeky guitars at Nerdist. Not even the guys at the Guitarz blog could really dig up any info about these cheap-ass prize guitars, but all Batman fans know the power of such a sweet axe.
All the work was done by the humble Aaron Hutzel at Lawerence Music. He works on all of my crap guitars and makes them sexy playable rock weapons.
It’s kind of cool, and I’m getting some hits to this old blog post.
