No I was not really even that drunk. I had stopped drinking after someone thought it would be funny to put a three wisemen in front of me. I drank it, then promptly ran to the bathroom to puke. After that I quit drinking. I had sat outside talking to Nick and then went to go get in my sisters car and caught my ankle wrong, went completely down and broke my ankle and leg in the process. Yes, as Marc has said, I apparently killed babies, puppies and kittens in a past life and now karma is back to get me.

Sure glad I live in a third story apartment now.

The bright side though is a nice guy fixed my computer so even though I can't really leave my house I still get to "interact" with my friends, while on pain meds.

See...Dazed & Confused can be enjoyed on either level...it's just a fantastic fricking movie. What I hate is a movie or album or whatever that stinks, and then someone tells you you have to be high to get it. Weed should enhance something that is already good, but what it usually does is make you settle for something less...like Sublime or generic CocoPuffs.

Mark (Headstruck) founded it in '08 in response to my "Shut Up, We Want To Sleep" camp group. This year, he said he wasn't going to be involved in organizing, but apparently he has been poaching all the best members for his own splinter group.

The best part is Randy keeps chastising them for being irresponsible and sating that the '08 version was made up of "fine, respectable people". (Which it was...they were our neighbors and we got along fine.

re: Dazed & Confused -- pot movie. I don't smoke pot. I don't really get the movie. I haven't tried watching it in a while though.

Well, as I was saying, neither do I for the most part, and I was offering it as an example of a movie that didn't REQUIRE pot to enjoy.

However, it probably helps if you grew up in a small town...every detail about small town high school life is perfect in that movie. Also, even though you are only a couple of years younger than me, I have very vivid childhood memories of 1976, and the movie is so spot on.

And finally, I have been told 1000x that the Adam Goldberg character must have been based on me in my youth. (although I looked just like his buddy.)

I can't count the number of times I've seen it, and I've never seen it stoned. It's nearly perfect to me.

grandma's boy is DEFINITELY a stoner movie. any movie that has central characters as pot dealers and where old ladies "accidentally" get high can probably be classified as a stoner movie.

i loved dazed and confused, but i saw it in the theatres when i was 12. i wonder if i'd enjoy it AS much now. plus it was THE only movie my mom EVERY had a problem with me watching (and my parents took me to fucking disclosure people), so there's that whole rebellion thing as well. it's also one of the few movies where i actually enjoy a performance from ben affleck. that kid who grabs his nose the entire movie really brings the movie down a peg or two though, god, WHO CAST THAT IDIOT.

I must not be black enough to appreciate Friday. Or the rest of you have some serious white guilt issues. All I know is, Jen talked it up as though it were the second coming of Cheech & Chong and quoted the dad at least once a week for a year, then we actually watched the movie (which she bought on DVD for $5), pouring ourselves some drinks and being in the mood to laugh, and... crickets. There were some chuckles maybe, more like polite smirks, but it was so mind-numbingly inane that I couldn't believe it actually launched F Gary Gray's career.

I found the Hangover to be really funny. I didn't hear many reviews before I saw it though. I had a lot of laugh out loud moments and what impressed me the most was the fact they were able to give a refreshing new spin on the whole bachelor party in Vegas idea. I could have easily dismissed this movie as a rehash of movies like Go or Very Bad Things or a number of others but I thought this movie was full of funny. Probably the funniest movie I saw last year. I can't think of anything else that good and it certainly wasn't any of the 756 Seth Rogan movies that came out.

it'll get more organized a few weeks from the actual fest...

a good question for all the newbs for this year is:

"What time will you be arriving in Indio?"

If you want to be a part of the main group, we'll be meeting up in Indio to caravan in together. Probably around noon or 1pm...the place/time will be decided a few weeks before.

if you can't make the main group, we encourage you to set up your own meetup locations/times to come in together in smaller groups. we'll figure out a way to mark the "main" location, where we'll all be set up, so everyone that doesn't come in at same time can find us and the party. :D


No one listen to Jason, he's destroyed what the camp all alone club is really about. Picking and choosing who's in the main group. Trying to tell everyone to meet at noon or 1. Which is it, Jason? Which is it? He'll probably ask for donations next. Everyone should splinter off and camp all alone.

Our group was pretty damn large, 80 + people or so but god damn that weekend was a blast. We are the oldest and largest group and we are too lazy to organize far in advance like we did in years past.

i'm not stating that we split anyone up or that anyone is "chosen" for the main group...

since we can't save spots anymore, we have to all go in together. so we were going to have a meeting location with a time that we would be leaving for the campgrounds. if anyone can't be there by that time, they'll have to form their own "groups" and then meet up with the main group inside to party.

no one is deciding who gets in the main group...just whoever can get there by a predetermined time.

It really did start out as a joke to make fun of my group. The original post has been edited too many times, but it was directly making fun of me.

Agreed. And you can't dare start ANOTHER movie thread. I tried to start one once specifically about shitty movies, out of respect to the Schoolio thread, and everyone was a dick about it. ("Everyone" being mostly Erik.) Meanwhile, 95% of what is posted in Schoolio gets ignored. There's very little actual discussion. It's pretty much just a list of mini movie reviews.

There is a movie thread, we don't need another movie thread....we have a NFL thread, so I don't start Miami Dolphin threads. That's just how it is. I didn't make those rules.

try hitting up central phoenix for art galleries/venues to see some bands. get online and see if theres any shows going on. lots of good bars all over too- youre closest to scottsdale i guess, you can find something.

Ooh if you are going to be near Scottsdale Rd. and Shea I highly recommend a place called Wok Star. One side is a bar and the other is chinese food take out called Chop n' Wok it's all owned by the same people and in the middle is an outdoor patio where you can eat and drink. They have a pool table and it's a very laid back NON scottsdale snobish place. I miss that place.

So i moved into a new place with a friend of mine a little over a month ago. about a week after moving in I started getting sick. Scratchy throat, itchy eyes and super congested. Seemed like it wasnt going away. I started to think i was allergic to something at the house. Maybe the cat, i didnt know though. Went to the doctor and they said i had bronchitis. Gave me some z-pak and sent me on my way. I was up in flagg for a few days snowboarding and taking my meds and i seemed to be alllllllll better. Until i got back home. about 3 more days at home and my sickness came back. Sunday night started coughing and couldnt stop. couldnt even lay down my chest was so tight and i was having a really tough time even breathing. I went to the ER and they said i was having an asthma attack. Very strange because i dont have asthma or any other health problems i know of. They gave me a breathing treatment and prednisone and i cleared right up..... So im pretty sure through my research online and talking to people there is mold in the house. All the syptoms seem to point to that. Its an older house. Im almost positive its mold. So now im searching for a new place. Nothing on craigslist. Im so tired of looking. So tired of crashing at my friends places but i cant sleep in that house anymore i get sick everytime i go there. THIS BLOWS

Interesting. I would make sure first. I never had any allergy problems or asthma for 25 years in Chicago. Once I arrived in Phoenix I started to get allergies every single change of season for about 4 years or so.

I'm assuming my immune system has won the battle because I haven't had any issues for the past 5 years. It seems you should be able to verify something like this before you start internet diagnosing and moving and then finding out it had nothing to do with mold.

Just a thought, i'm not saying it isn't, just that you should be able to verify it first.

NachoCat I used to work for a nonprofit that did home repair for low-income families. 90% of the mold you find in homes in AZ isn't harmful to homeowners. Of course the place you are living may fall into that 10% that is harmful but you want to get it checked out before you move.

What area are you living in? I find that in the spring I have a really hard time with certain areas if it is when the orange blossoms are blooming. I get migraines and my asthma kicks in. But the only places I have problems are the northern gilbert/mesa area and then central phoenix where they had all the orange groves before putting all the houses in.

Ok so im going to be heading out to Pheonix in a few weeks. Its been forever since ive been there, and have no real recolection as to what things there are to do for recreation and the like.

So...what the fuck is there to do in Pheonix?

I hear Phoenix is great for learning to properly spell the name of the city.

of course, roo!!!



i'll take a stab at this...

i love the blunt club, which is not an actual club, but a weekly that is thrown at different clubs. they are on myspace & facebook i believe, but it's mainly hip-hop, dnb & dubstep.

i had fun the one time i went to cherry pit lounge on mill for UK thursdays. i knew people who were djing though and i can't speak to what it's like on other nights.

i have had fun at myst, though it's not for the people that's for sure. it's also expensive, but of all the scottsdale bullshit clubs, i have had the most fun here & at the pussycat lounge as well. axis/radius is douche central so only go if you REALLY want to see someone.

bar smith is a neat venue downtown & on saturdays they usually do "solstice", which is a house music weekly.

aura is a good psytrance monthly, add them on facebook. they usually do their events at hookah type lounges or places with middle-eastern food and tend to have things like belly dancers and the more "hippie" edm crowd.

if you are REALLY into the hipster scene you would probably have a blast at the rogue in south scottsdale. it's a tiny place, but lots of people swear by it. i just find a lot of the people obnoxious and the one time i went NO ONE was dancing and they were looking at us snobby like because we were dancing.

as far as concerts... the marquee theatre in tempe is the best place in MY opinion to see your average touring band. they won't house the HUGE arena type shows, but they tend to have a good mix of indie, edm and other types of bands. i personally HATE the dodge theatre as it sounds like there's a giant mute on the stage and it looks smaller than it is, but some people like it. the jobing.com & US airways arenas are both good for larger shows. avoid the clubhouse if you can, place is SHITTY. i've heard good things about the rhythm room, but i've unfortunately never been.

there are lots of dive type bars that will host weeklies or one-off events, so you have to make sure to keep an eye out for events on facebook or something.

*EDITED*

if you're into freak dancing like it ain't no thing and if you're a girl getting felt up all night, head out to the buzz nightclub at scottsdale & shea. i only went there once with some girls from work and i could tell multiple stories about that night for days. wall to wall bitches n' hoes!

devil's martini in north scottsdale is definitely the place to go if you like an older crowd who's interested in status from what i've gathered. i've never been, i just know a lot of people who have gone there or invited me there. it's kinda far for me too.

kazimierz in the old town area is fucking awesome if you can afford it. it's a wine bar, but they do have decent priced appetizers and nibbles. it's not a place to go for a full meal in my opinion. i've had a different experience there every time i went too which is rare. i've seen some serious flamenco dancers and various old jazz singers with completely different bands. i really like this place and whenever anyone asks me where they should take a date, i always suggest this place.




Do you like live hip hop and actual turntablists? Go to the Insects show at the Hidden House on 7th avenue & Osborn.

Do you like house music and cheap pints? Go to Skyline at District inside the Sheraton on 3rd street & Van Buren.

Do you like pseudo-hipsters, decent dance music and shitty bartenders? Try Fuse at Barsmith between 1st and 2nd streets and Washington.

Do you like hipsters, cocaine and decent dance music in a gothy environment? Try faux Show at Sanctum on 7th avenue just north of Indian School.

How about hipsters, cocaine, semi-decent dance music and cheap booze in a rednecky poolhall? There's Ransom at Philthy Phil's on 16th street and Thomas.

Do you like mexican trannies? El Zarape on 17th street and McDowell.

Are you afraid of the ghetto? Avoid the Bikini.

Will your drunk ass crave awesome carne asada after hours? The taco truck at Charlie's on 7th avenue and Camelback.

Have fun!

you could also come to symphonic star wars with micah and i :p

Went to Carly's friday night. Pita Pizza = 10/10. Delicious.

Glad to hear Little Dragon was a good show. Will have to check them out at Coachella. I was watching the Pacquaio/Clottey fight at my family's. Not quite as much fun but less expensive. And my sister appreciated my presence, what with it being her birthday and all.

NachoCat: glad you liked the pita pizza. Which one did you get? I always do the white pita pizza. I want to expand my menu options there but that thing is just so damn good, I can't resist.
Also, whenever I see your name as the last poster in this thread, I get a little song in my head, sung to the tune of the Village People's "Macho Man": "Nacho, NachoCat, I want to be a NachoCat." (In truth, it's more inspired by Homer Simpson's parody lyrics, with "hat" in place of "cat," in that episode of the Simpsons in which he becomes Ned Flanders's #1 fan.)

I was also wondering how they would sound live compared to the cd, and I can say now that they sounded great at the Club Congress. They're only a four piece band and everything sounded clear and crisp. I'm really looking forward to seeing them again at Coachella with a bigger crowd. I'm also excited to see them perform with Gorillaz Sunday night. That is going to be loco!

This is why I tend to vote in Republican primaries, so that I can vote against whackjobs like Hayworth. In Arizona, a right-wing whackjob actually has a chance of getting elected, while a left-wing whackjob does not.

McCain is getting worried. He's got Palin to help him drum up support. I thought these two were at odds with a war of words over the past several months including her writing things in her book about the campaign. He's riding this Palin thing as far into the ground as he can I guess.

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2010/03/15/20100315palin-mccain-campaign-rally.html#comments

I guess he thinks if Palin can get the nut jobs then and this is the state with one of the biggest nutjob populations it couldn't hurt. I think it's gonna make it an even tighter race.

I used to have to deal with Hayworth all the time when I worked in TV. He used to bug me so much, even though he was perfectly nice. Since he had worked in TV too, he would always try to be helpful, like holding up something to white balance and wiring up his own mic. But, I always felt like it was kind of a "Hey, I know you have a lot of power to make me look bad, so I'm going to pretend to be helpful and get on your good side."

Also, shaking his hand is like grabbing a canned ham.

i fucking hate hayworth. i wrote him several times when i was in the 6th district.

has anyone bought alcohol at a store lately? last week, i went to fry's. i just wanted a cheapo bottle of wine, i was in a hurry, the cashier can't ring me up because she doesn't "know who i am" and she needs me to sign something, but can't find the paper. i just left.

i go to safeway yesterday, buy beer and now they want me to sign something too. she said it was a new state law. but on saturday, my girlfriend and i bought wine at a different frys without signing shit.

has anyone had this happen recently?

I remember having to sign for alcohol at a Fry's in Tucson a few years back, so it's definitely not something new. I've never had to do it here, and I usually don't even get carded anymore at the store by our house. Should probably be a worrisome sign.

locachica73
03-16-2010, 08:58 AM

it was just a pad of several papers that asked for the date, license number, name and signature. nothing to read. they said it was because my ID wouldn't scan, maybe that's why none of you have had to sign recently. i remember having to do that years ago too, but not recently. just seems fucking odd, what possible purpose could this serve? will the alcohol police be rolling by soon?

i got this ID like 6 months ago when i moved. it's pristine.

it's retarded like tom said. one time i was bitching about the carding culture at a taco bell with a coworker and this guy joined our conversation. he was a former restaraunt owner who was sick of dealing with all the bullshit related to selling alcohol so he sold his restaurant.

i just don't get what needs to be done beyond asking for my ID. can we just say "if you drink this toxic shit, you're responsible for what happens" and be done with it???

and i hear census workers make pretty good money. i would have done it in 2000 if i wasn't having so much fun doing drugs lol.
