So, there is a tea brand called Yogi™ and they make soem pretty damn good ish. This batch of wisd(homage) comes from Lemon Ginger. With every tea bag's kite string tail there is a little bit of wisdom, an ego booster or just arrogance.
Today's wisdom: You Are Unlimited.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "I've got a Gun" by Channel 3 from the compilation "The Entire History of Punk Vol.12"

So, there's this dude named Lee Bender and he was diagnosed with MS, soem pretty heavy ish if you ask me. I never met the dewd, but I have a number of friends and acquaintances that are good friends with him in Chicago, Indiana & Arizona.
Mai friend's Mom & friend's GF have it, mai friend Kelly has it. Total bummer seeing how it affect them when they go blind in one eye for a day or can't stand because their leg is paralyzed, ish just falling from their hands 'cuz they can't grip. They're all pretty strong willed and are not charity cases by any means and don't want to be treated as such and don't use it a crutch to gain anything, well maybe that really kewl parking tag to hang from the rear view to get killer parking. I know when I've been driving and we use it I almost feel like I'm breaking the law when we park and walk in to wherever we're going.
If you are in the area, being Indianapolis, Indiana, you should czech out the scene. Support Lee & Rise Skateshop. The 3rd annual benefit & Halloween Jam will be off the hook, or is it chain? At any rate it'll just be going off in general. If you have a motorcycle there will prolly be soem antics to watch, maybe a burnout on a hot dog or soemthing. Here is soem footy from the 2007 fun and games. The park is pretty fun and there is a kewl fixey track in the same parking lot. If any of this info is wrong, I'm sorry, I'm not encyclopedia brown.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Move Along" by Beats The Hell Out Of Me from the album "Revising History" released in 2004. BTHOOM are a band from Chandler, Arizona. I got this CD last year at the OMA BBQ.
So, I have been putting Twitter boxes on all of my Social pages to keep up on Social graces. Well, todei I went to put one on my Myspace music page and there was this email (pictured above), I guess I blew it, because I could have prolly blown up had I kept up with the times, technology, and my playing in general. Damn skateboard.
I might have taken up the offer if I hadn't been out of the scene for 5 years, and kept at it religiously.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Accumulate" by Secret Society from the compilation "The World of Rave (Disc 2)" released in 1996. I could not find a video for this song, but he does have another track on Disc 2 of the compilation "Welcome to the Technodrome Vol.4" called "Hypnotize"

So, if you like early Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, Subadoo, Subaydu (three moar reasons to do it yourself) then you might wanna go Czech out LOOTUBE, it's Mr. Barlow's section on the Merge Records website for fun stuff and things. Really it's just videos for his songs. While you're there, go czech out the rest of the Merge catalogue like, early Superchunk.
No song, no TV, I'm just sitting here quietly ready to go to the bank after this post.
So, here at SRC we decided to not have you leave to search for new ish. Why not keep you here? A new box is located on the Left-Hand side bar of the page, after you type your search in the box and press the search button, you results will appear at the bottom of the page.
Go ahead search Skateboards, Pleasure Swings, Goa Trance, Vans Shoes, Baby Names, Dry Bones Nation, etc. Wahtevs you want. I'm just here to keep you here, until you leave to go look for soemthing else, moar ish on soem other site.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "This Is Not A Daydream" by Alien Factory from the compilation "Welcome To The Technodrome Vol. 4 (Disc 2)" released in 1995. I remember buying this at Camelot Music in 1995 in the Charlestowne Mall in St.Charles, IL 60174. I used to hang out there for hours and had made friends with the employees there. Sweet deals and special orders, like Helios Creeds - Kiss to the Brain.

So, If you read this, you're prolly denying that you're NOT a hipster. The thing with hipsters is, that they purposefully don't do a certain popular trend to prove to you that they aren't a hipster.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Reunion" by Quietman from the album "Shhhh disc 2" released in 1998. This track is off of the Free Ambient CD that was released as a limited edition. They say it's CD only, but I've seen the CD sold without it. IDK, WTFrick is up with that ish.

So, Crisp Autumn breeze, Mind freeze, Colors falling around me as Trees shed these, morning Dew turns to mist to Walk through as I sift through my Mental morning Fog like a dog with Rabies. Save me, my theme to Negate thee. Flagellate he as I defend we, my feelings too Delicate to Delegate due to my need to Masturbate your Mind, a true Crime that is mine to shine and Frustrate.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Shapeshifter" by Gong from the album of the same name "Shapeshifter" released in 1992.

So, it's that time of year again Fellows where I pack my bags and must go to Arizona for the 4th annual OMA BBQ weekend, Mesa to be exact. That's where my friends Frog & Joy live in their house with my niece and nephew Malibu & Compton. Malibu is the tall one.
Gotta stop by Yeah! boardshop to stock up on soem new ish, like a new 8.25, soem new STF's and soem new chukka lows. Still have to buy mai plane ticket, hope I can still find a cheapo price out there on a good airline, I love Southwest, but I hat the trek down to Midway on the CTA, crybaby.
I can't wait to skate you again and you and you and you. Maybe run into some of the Dry Bones Nation Arizona chapter.
Maybe I'll hit up Marfa over at Wellborn Clothing to see if I could do some product plugging while I'm out there, you know, get the brand noticed in the southwestern public eye, which might be KNDA good since it'll still be KNDA fresh in their minds after seeing their rider Shawn Turner get 6th in Chicago's King of DC contest thingy, whatevs.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Lonely Riders" by D.S. Yancey from the album of the same name "Lonely Riders".
All Songs were recorded in the Spring of 2006 in the sleeper cab of D.S. Yancey's old Freightliner semi, from San Diego to Denver. I met him, 2007, through a friend I used to work with Mark Scearce, who's friends were having a house party in KNDA a reunion of sorts of old friends, they all had bands and Yancey one one of the acts, all solo, he played the Tambourine with his foot. Mark recorded that night on his MD player. I'd like to hear it.

So, today in Chicago, otherwise known as the Chi, (that's pronounced "Shy" not "Chee" or "Chai" which is pronounced "Ch-Eye" not "Kai") there will be held the DC - King Of Chicago contest thing or something. Prolly just a bunch of kids balancing on two wheels wearing Nike's anyway, but you should czech it out, I will be stopping by there, maybe sell a button or two, hand out some Whip It Good stickers. I wish I had a batch of these to hand out.
Uprise Skateshop will be there in full effect with their guys reppin' Wellborn Clothing will also be there with their guys Shawn Turner & Joey Adamczyk, Character Skateboards will most likely be there as will riders from Yeah! Boardshop.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "The Mix" by Astral Projection from the album "The Mix" released in Japan in 1997. password: yuforum.net
So, while rummaging through the closet I found this paper printed out that I totally forgot about, or just plain don't remember printing out, but I must've because I hold it in my hands.
The contents printed thereon is a story that a guy by the name of Oliver Badali had come up with by using the track titles of an album by Space Buddha called "Eternity Project" that was released in 2001 on the Israeli label Agitato Records.
Without further blabbering I give you:
Slow... subtle... the mysterious rhythm of the "REAL WORLD" coils upward twisting and writhing itself into an epic majestic harmony. It drops and shift and changes around repeatedly, never lingering too long. The album continues along this path, through the "END OF JOURNEY" and it never stirs far from a bountiful blend of drops followed by hypnotic build, with layers of ripping soundscapes winding throughout one another as seen in "ETERNITY PROJECT". The ever sly creeping electric-guitar riffs and spacey blips decorate the "SOLAR TEMPLE" all around. "IN MY DREAMS", this song is good. And in reality... "THE FUTURE ON EARTH" shows us its rhythmic flow and ultrasonic thumping. So along comes the "SAND DRUMS" and drops the bomb of delicious psychedelic spice gas. Then the clean transitions and ominus flowing of wriggling melodia deal the final stomping slam as the "SILENCE FOREVER" takes hold. - By: Oliver Badali
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "She Sells Sactuary" by The Cult from the album "Live @ Wembley Arena" recorded in 1989 during the tour to support the "Sonic Temple" album.

So, Chicago will be celebrating Jesse Neuahus's 25 years of Skateboarding and the fact that he has soul by the pound.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "We're The Same" by Matthew Sweet from the album "100% Fun" released in 1995.
So, My parents both went to catholic school. They believe in god and the like, but never really pushed it onto me aside from the fact that I had my communion, went to CCD as a kid every wednesday after school for about two years 3rd-4th grade. My brother didn't do the CCD thing. I think they did a pretty good job of raising me and instilling a good set of ideals in me. They showed me what they knew yet gave me the freedom to decide for myself once I was old enough.
Around 6th grade I started reading in the school library and found out about all these other religions, I started to question that maybe Jesus & Christianity isn't the ONE answer, but maybe rather certain peoples interpretation of some events that may have really happened, they all talk about a flood. So it really made me open myself up to other sides of the story, since even people in the same religions have disputes about the story and its meaning and what he/they were trying to say.
I just took with me the good things, the basic good rules to live by from my learnings in my time with the church up until 6th grade, I kept reading to try and get a better understanding of people and their cultural beliefs in general and why not, I don't bother anybody, I listen without prejudice to what they have to say about what it is they believe and understand what is right to them. It is only when I get approached and feel like I'm being cornered, bullied or basically told that I am wrong that I get defensive.
Pagan, Wicca, Druid and let's not forget that you can't have Satan without God, it's like day & night, Whatever, etc. they all have a similar root base, it is just that every tree is different, to me anyway.
What is so wrong with worshipping the Earth our Mother? We are all here, for a reason or not. What is a Fern's purpose, Why do Centipedes exist, what are Fruits & Vegetables? They are all here and we (all creatures) eat or use them and they are good or bad for us, just thinking about that kind of stuff gets you twisted and starts to make your head hurt like when you try to figure out the time travel in Back to the Future or Terminator.
I'm not saying you are wrong, but you could be, sometimes it comes off as maybe a little pushy to some people. Hell, maybe I'm wrong, I could be. We all need to maybe just hold that little 1% in the back of our minds that we could be.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "FM Terror" by XMF from the compilation "Mururoa Test 1" released in 1995. A great Hardcore/Gabber compilation.

So, Czech this out, if something happened, it cannot come from nothing. Something had to have happened in order for there to be a "bang" of something. It cannot be a "bang" of nothing from something nor a "bang" of something from nothing. A can of gas doesn't just explode out of nowhere, you have to have an ignition of some kind.
Man created god(s) to give them answers to the questions and events that they had no answer for, rain gods, sun gods, feces god, sea god, overworld god, otherworld god, underworld god, and also goddess' for any number of those. Anybody that did not beLIEve in the notion of the one and only GOD was slaughtered, raped, tortured, enslaved throughout time if they did not comply.
Maybe there was/is somebody that dropped a match into a bucket of gas for what seems like a long time ago for us, but only an instance for them, maybe we're just a 4th of July firework that got a little moist and created mold spores and we just lived on those spores until the moment of said "bang" at some extra-galactic BBQ.
I have no clue, Simon has no clue, Seth has no clue, Joseph really doesn't have a clue, Toby may be on to something, who knows? We all just beLIEve something that helps us get through the day/month/year/life. Should that turn us into enemies just like it has for centuries B4 us?
Should I belittle you just for the fact that you're Vegan or you prefer Oreos over Safeway Tuxedos? Let it go man, it's like beating a dead horse or that dragon with the chest plate missing, it's what is inside your head and heart. Should I argue with my friend Lou about how he's obbsessed with asian chix and how he's wrong and that skinny white goth chix are the way to go?
Go to your church, do your spell, count to 7 before everything, whatever. Just live by some basic good ideals and you'll do just fine.
Don't rape, don't murder, don't lie to you're mom, hold the door if you're there first, say please & thank you, and accept that somebody has a different beLIEf system than you. Wait a sec... this isn't the open mic at the coffee shop. - iSapien 1956672

So, Forest of night for the music that takes you home and tucks you in tight.
Autumn feels fun with cartwheels in the sun, eating apples in a row, side by side with baked potatoes. A bag of corn chips with seeds of flax or red fingers from raspberry snacks? It is harder to hide your smile with no chance of gloom or guile while trying to decide on your next oral sensory trial.
Most things don't seem to be as seemingly easily obtained as they make it sound, red tape, yellow tape, duct tape, you get the idea. Anther fiscal setback leads into another gain only to be set back again in financial strain. To this do you believe that most times most things are mostly bogus findings by bogus windbags who like to hear themselves talk and only get louder when you try to voice your opinion in a body language technique that just means "sit there, shut the fuck up and listen to me and my voice, but try not to fall asleep."
Formula for fun may take time to come around while you sit there sipping your tea contemplating how to go about achieving such ridiculous amounts of time to complete what you only want to be a good time.
As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Tribute" by Etnica from the Compilation "Destination Goa 1" released in 1996 on Why Not Records.
