    so the guy on intervention that i sort of knew who said he couldn't go to rehab because it interfered with coachella killed himself. he posted a cryptic goodbye on facebook and no one responded until after his death, so sad.

    Yeah, I was gonna say that its too bad even music, especially the prospect of attending a music festival couldn't make the person wait it out. That may come out douchey, but I mean well.

    There've certainly been times in my life that the only thing that kept me from seriously considering killing myself was the prospect of missing an awesome concert I was looking forward to, with Coachella being that concert for a good stretch in the mid-2000s.

    I remember that Intervention. From what I remember he just did whatever drugs were handed to him. His mom paid his rent and all of his bills, and he spent his nights at clubs trying to DJ. I remember that he thought he was hot shit but no one ever gave him a job as a DJ. Then he was like "I can't go to rehab because of Coachella and it's a once in a lifetime experience". I think he was also implying that he would be playing there or something...which turned out to not be true.

    he once tried to push a dnb headliner off the decks so he could play. the best part of that episode is when it's like 4am and his neighbors are calmly and rationally complaining about the volume of his music. they argue for like ten minutes. when he walks away, he says "just let me know if the volume becomes a problem". i think the girl looked like she was going to explode.

    I remember you saying he was kind of creepy to you and your girlfriends. Mostly because he was so much older.

    Arizona Strong Beer Festival

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Event Information

    Arizona Beer Week kicks off with the 13th Annual Arizona Strong Beer Festival, held at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix on February 16th, 2013. Although strong beers (those with high alcohol content) are the focus at the festival, a huge variety of craft beers — as well as specialty styles and unique, just-for-this-event brews — are made available to festival-goers, who will receive a commemorative four-ounce tasting glass and 15 tasting tickets for the price of admission. And because food and beer just naturally go together, there will be plenty of top-notch food vendors on hand, serving up tasty eats that wash down well with frosty suds. Live music will keep the atmosphere rockin’. Presented by The Arizona Craft Brewers Guild.


    GA $35.00

    VIP $45.00

    Designated driver ticket $10.00

    If anyone got a pass only in the presale and is now thinking of adding a camping pass, I have one I'm not using. We would need to swap wristbands when they are shipped, so I'd probably only do it for someone in Phoenix so it's all settled before we get there. You can buy me lunch or toss me some gas money for coming to meet up, other than that it's free.

    I remember we had an extra one last year and Dylan said he might want it if it was free, but we wound up using it to expand our campsite. I'm not camping this year

    I might be interested in it. My roommate and I were discussing getting an additional camping pass and car for extra space. I will let you know for sure once I talk to them more about it.

    Attention sane people: Arizona Democrats need your help.

    http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendl...e-high-school/

    A group of Arizona politicians — all Republicans, of course — have proposed a law (House Bill 2467) requiring public high school students to recite the following oath in order to graduate:

    I, _______, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge these duties; So help me God.

    To quote Comedy Central’s Ilya Gerner: “Nothing says ‘I take this obligation freely’ quite like a state law that withholds your diploma unless you swear an oath.”


    Kevin Bondelli adds:

    … graduating high school is not the same thing as voluntarily accepting the responsibility of a public office or admission to the legal bar. A high school diploma is, with extremely few exceptions, required to have a chance to live above the poverty level. It is the culmination of an education that up until that point was compulsory.

    It’s bad enough the Republicans are demanding loyalty of the kind normally reserved for members of Congress and beyond — but there’s also no way I would say those last four words, and the current text of the legislation does not allow for any alternatives.

    In other words, if this bill were to become a law, atheists would either not be allowed to graduate… or they would be forced to lie so they could graduate. Neither option is acceptable.

    Mike Sunnucks of the Phoenix Business Journal points out another problem:

    The Arizona bill could also face legal challenges if it is approved.

    Jehovah’s witnesses, some Muslims and pacifist Quakers have in the past challenged loyalty oaths imposed by the federal government and other agencies, saying they conflict with their beliefs and religious professions. Similarly, some Arizona students could challenge the proposed high school oath as a violation of their religious liberties and freedom of expression.

    This bill is the work of Representatives Bob Thorpe, Sonny Borrelli, Carl Seel, T.J. Shope, Jeff Dial, David Livingston, Chester Crandell, and Steve Smith.

    Smith and Shope have also introduced legislation demanding that all students in grades 1-12 recite the Pledge of Allegiance (with “Under God”) every day. At least in that bill, students can get out of saying it with their parents’ permission.

    No such exemption exists in the Loyalty Oath.

    Keep in mind that in both cases, the bills do not help children get a better education. That’s the saddest thing about all this. The people who are in charge of fixing the education crisis are proposing solutions that would only waste more classroom time and exclude many students from graduating despite fulfilling their current requirements.

    =====================================

    Steve Smith has taken over Russell Pearce's role as the biggest asshat at the Capitol. May he choke on a bag o' dicks and die.

    Not the least bit fascist. And certainly a prudent use of taxpayer dollars.

    Of course you're invited. We're going to games all 3 days. We're seeing the Padres/Indians game for sure on Saturday, as Carrie is a Padres fan and I'm an Indians fan. Joe isn't making the trip, he has work obligations he can't miss.
