Apparently the gathering of the juggalos is coming to Denver in 2017.

Fuck you, Monday.

Duuuuuude I want to go to that so bad!


You've a couch or air mattress in boulder if you want it. You might go alone into the breach.

Kept seeing people tweeting about BLM protests. My naive Coloradan self thought at a glance they were crazy rednecks in texas protesting the federal government & bureau of land management (what BLM is). Coupled with a guy in camo being the first suspect because he was OPEN CARRYING A FREAKING AR-15 AT THE EVENT, and it made sense.

Nope. Turns out it stands for black lives matter, too, apparently. Now anyways.

Makes "I went to a BLM Area to shoot some rounds today" have a much, much darker meaning now. Especially considering 75% of shots I've fired in my lifetime have been in BLM areas/land. Snowmobile/ATV usage, too.

T minus 2 hours until I drive out of my hated birthstate to once again move to Colorado.

22 hour drive. Doing a straight shot.

No. sleep. til. Boulder.

I came to peedee after it, but I have close family in Orlando. Specifically, my dad's cousin but more like an uncle figure. He's not in the closet, but no one in my closed minded tennessee family are aware of his lifestyle.

I lived with him for 2 summers from 16 - 17. He got me a job at disney, working in concessions at blizzard beach (mini donut stand across from beach haus for those of you that have been.) This was in 2002 & 2003. Prior to the first summer, he came out to me. I'm apparently the only one he's ever come out to. His method is "if anyone asks ill tell them the truth", but being a southern family, no one has the gall to ask him directly and it's don't ask don't tell. I endearingly refer to him as my guncle, or gay uncle. He's awesome.

Over those summers he was a member of a gay bowling league. Took me to said league every tuesday. Made some lifelong friends through that, all older than me. Still text a few of them a few times a year.

Guncle's type are latinos. Specifically, barely legal latino boys. He likes em young and bronze. I'm not one that ever has anxiety about anything, but the morning of I was freaking out when I found out the details of it. Luckily, my old curmudgeon guncle was home in bed & was shocked the next morning.

One of my friends from the bowling league had a close friend that didn't make it out. One of guncle's friends & his partner were there. The partner didn't make it out. His friend was hit, but had no idea until about 40 minutes afterwards - he was bleeding profusely and thought it was all someone else's blood.

Guncle lives a few blocks over from orange avenue. Have another friend there whom I met in college via WoW - he was a guildie. Have drank and hung out with him multiple times in the 407. He heard the shots from his house.

I was pretty shaken by this. I was a hour+ away from the aurora theater when it happened, at a different midnight showing. Even then, it didn't really hit me deeply. This one fucked me up for a while. I know some business owners of a casket company in Orlando. NYT, AP, and others were on site and taking pics and interviewing the owners in the aftermath. Had pics of their inventory up on the "this week in pictures" sections, too.

Just writing this out now all because I can. Shits fucked. There's so much more I could say and discuss, especially on the times. My first pride parade/events were in orlando. o-town was my first gay life exposure. hell, summers with guncle and the culture shock from it really shaped me into the person I am today.

I thought abotu throwing something up in or kill me, decided against it. So there's my very miniature discussion/perspective.

We're fucked as a species.

Moving back to Boulder. All that's left to do is decide the day. Tentatively next weekend, but work may change that for a trip up to Richmond before i go.

Looking forward to winter again. Especially the mountains - will be doing the Epic Local pass this year, mostly for Beaver Creek.


Edit: They misspelled it. Bugs me.

Driving out to CO on Friday for 2 weeks to gauge if I could stand moving back or not. Very heavily leaning towards yes, but the 2 weeks + the drive in that span will determine it for me.

It's a shitty schrodinger-esque situation unfortunately. If his cancer worsens & he's gone in 2 years, i'll hate myself if i move but i'd be happy if i stayed. If he's still around in 5 years, I'd hate myself if i stayed but be happy if I moved.

Having the new car which can do the drive helps my thoughts that i'll be able to drive back more often than i did the first 5 years i was in CO. Sigh. We'll see how it goes.

Bought my first new car on Monday. Brought her home yesterday. 2016 Subaru Forrester. Was expecting the process to take all month. It only took about 3 hours.

Had finished paying one loan off. Now the car loan is for the same amount. In debt again, but eh, this car ideally will last me 10 - 15 years. Hell, the honda accord that was at the end of it's life before i gave it up for the navy made it 9 years & 140k miles with me, so I'm optimistic.

Dad's treatments are done. Now he's on pills until next Sept. I'm driving to CO over memorial day weekend for 2 weeks. While there, I'm going to decide if I can live with myself by being 22 hours away again & mainly driving back to TN 2 times a year for a few weeks so I see the parents more, & potentially moving back when/if his health deteriorates. Was planning to stay close, but then allergy season broke me. If I opt to move back to paradise, I'll make my exodus sometime in July. Ideally it would've been 4th of july, but I now have Garbage tickets in Knoxville July 18th, and since I've a shirley manson obsession anyways, that may warrant another few weeks.

2017 is going to be a helluva year. I turn 30, 2 weddings (one which will be AWESOME in london), mardi gras, & climbing trolltunga.


I was naively hoping Kasich could pull an 11th hour miracle. Glad Cruz is out, but this shit show is just starting. I'm starting to believe enough people might vehemently hate hilldog to allow this to happen.

Somehow my 2 day training I'm conducting in Chicago in two weeks is now a 6 day training in both Chicago & Texas.

I would say I'm stressed, but I feel that would require more time than I currently have.

Anyone know of any fun bars or great food in Dallas?


Also, he's an admitted Socialist, and socialism is BAD.

Mind you, this is coming from a bunch of guys who are getting financial aid from the government to go to school.

The surprise will be coming when they hit the trades for real.  Most tradesmen are liberal as hell.

I hope that's how it is here in TN.

:cry:  I will remember youuuuuu  :cry:

They're not too hard to deal with. If I don't make Jesus Jokes, and compliment their tractor, I should be fine.

Don't forget to bash Muslims, gays, atheists, intellectuals, liberals, and/or Obama to close out your conversations.
