    I'll be in Berkeley from Thursday through Sunday, scoring essays. I'm one of the readers for the University of California's Writing Placement Exam, so it's eight hours of essay reading for three days straight. Not fun, but A) it's Berkeley, and B) I'm getting paid.

    As you all are throwing back cold ones and enjoying the long weekend, just take a hot second and remember the reason for the day off. And with that, I am going to tell a story:

    While stationed at Ft. Eustis, VA I happened to be on funeral detail with a guy from a different unit that asked me if I wanted to go to D.C. and see the wall on Memorial Day. Having never been to D.C. (this was in 1992 for those who enjoy a timeline) and wanting to check out The Wall, I agreed to go.

    Once we got to there I found out the reason that he wanted to go. His father, which he never knew, was killed in Vietnam and in fact had died before he was born. So, we eventually found his father's name....and we stood there. For a very long time. He didn't cry and he didn't curse, but neither one of us said a word for maybe 20 minutes. And without a word, he walked away. Every year around Memorial Day I think of this guy and that day.

    Why do I share this? Well, I am not trying to be Doogie Downer or anything like that, but we all just get caught up in all the things we "get" to do, but we never give thanks to the people who gave their lives (or their minds, sadly) so that we can do our thing without worries. For many of the vets that I know, being a soldier was the "high point" in their lives, the touchstone if you will, and many vets just feel forgotten or discarded.

    So...........if you know a vet this weekend, no matter how corny you may feel saying it, just thank them for their service, and if you know someone who has lost a loved one, call them. It's not nearly as fun as going to a show, but it may mean a lot to someone.

    Vietnam wasn't a threat to us. Where do you get your "facts" from - History of the U.S. as told by Bill O'Reilly? Furthermore, if anyone tries to thank me for my service this memorial day weekend, I'll tell them to fuck themselves. Stop thanking me and get your lawmakers to get my brethren out of that modern-day Vietnam-esque quagmire that we're in.

    Fuck you.

    Yeah, I was kind of expecting that......hmmm.

    You are 100% correct. Vietnam was not a threat to us at all. And this is the first time in my life that I have ever been termed as conservative.

    That being said, dumbfucks like myself (Somalia, Iraq), my father (Vietnam) and my mom's father (World War II) were all drinking the Kool-Aid, believing that somehow, someway, we were making a difference. And you're right---we did not make a difference at all, just rich, white men having a dick-measuring contest.

    So, if you see at veteran this weekend, ignore them. At all costs.

    If anyone's gonna be in the PHX this MemDay weekend, Devlin & Darko (Spank Rock) will be spinning at Glam on Friday night. Caught most of their set at Coachella and they are gonna kiiilll.

    Juan MacLean and Steve Aoki* are gonna be at Burn on Saturday night. Anyone caught a Juan MacLean DJ set before? I'm getting dance-happy as I type this.

    *Ok, is SA really as horrible as everyone says? I wandered into the Sahara towards the end of his set but nothing stands out one way or another.


    P.S. Veterans make for fascinating discussions.

    yeah i don't get why disapproval of Iraq = not observing memorial day.
    My f.i.l. served in Korea (purple heart + bronze star) and also Vietnam. he is adamantly opposed to the iraq war and marches in protests and stuff. but he observes memorial day and veteran's day. they are separate issues.
