Late on a Friday night, the Timberwolves snuck in an email telling me my price to remain season ticket holder of the seat I've had for the past three seasons was increasing by - get this - 40%!, and I had until the end of the month to opt out before they started billing me at that rate. Maybe SOMEBODY is interested in paying that price, but even if I could afford it, there's no way I would. I'm pretty disgusted. I've been at the Target Center for what will have been nine seasons...most of them pretty dreadful as far as their record went...but I'm cancelling after this season. So they better win the championship this year, I guess? I'm out.

So apparently there was a shooting in the Hex parking lot? I had pretty good ear plugs in and MURF were really loud, so I totally missed it, but the cops were finishing up with the crime scene tape and evidence gathering as people started to leave at closing. (Naturally, I suspect Simon)

Found these at Target last night....and today, I forgot to credit Christopher Hare for first letting me know about them
Mon 23:30 
Bought another Jesus today...put him (sorry, Him) on top of the first one for now
13.1 15:54 Anybody wanna pay eighteen bucks to watch me watch The Last Jedi for the first time on the IMAX 3D screen at the zoo? Showtime is 9.30 but it's also a long ass drive from my house but I gotta see this movie sooner or later or I will miss it (the Blade Runner 2049 Blu-ray coming out Tuesday has taught me this)
13.1 12:44 I am not immune
(Also, this really doesn't look much like me)

12.1 17:14 Video - IT'S THE WEEKEND
11.1 23:28 
Guys look it's Lindsay
11.1 19:02 ...and time to share THIS again. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS since RAW #1...

11.1 19:00 Video - Time to share this again <3
10.1 16:14 We just rack up the milestones here on the old Social Network
9.1 23:58 
One more time
9.1 23:45 
That WAS fast
9.1 17:34 My Dry January is over!
Also, took my first work nap!
There are no coincidences
9.1 10:39 The joy of home ownership: I just paid a professional $129 to ever so slightly adjust a screw on my garage door opener
8.1 16:50 It's like the soundtrack to some Golan/Globus shit (which you know I mean as a compliment)
8.1 15:21 
The Xmas 2017 version of this photo will probably never make it out of Mom's camera, but someday I'll get a copy and share it with you (if my brother doesn't)
8.1 15:11 This is my first caffeine in... five days?! I went five days without caffeine?! What the heck
8.1 01:34 I've done the math - my last minute excursion down to the living room on Sunday meant my time spent in bed during this first week of 2018 has dropped from 80% to 78%! That's already way more time than I've felt like sacrificing to this crud, though, so I hope I start seeing your faces again in all the usual places, starting THIS week.
7.1 05:27 In 1987, USA Network thought it'd be a good idea to produce a fourth season of "Airwolf" with none of the original cast, half of the budget, no new helicopter SFX shots, filmed in Canada. It was not successful.

In 2018, instead of sleeping, I'm watching the El Rey network airing of episode 4x01, "Blackjack," where a helicopter containing a very unconvincing Ernest Borgnine double just "blew up" in an incident which also happened to place Very Special Guest Star Jan-Michael Vincent into a coma. Currently I am also feeling not successful.
5.1 16:13 2018: the year I never got out of bed
(I did make it to work today)
4.1 04:25 Being sick is the worst. All I want is to be hugged until I'm well
3.1 03:56 
Will attempt a signal boost for my friends in the Bay Area - consider showing Interest, please?
1.1 08:21 I'm home safe. James I am ready to support your nomination for sainthood. Dayna I'm sorry because it was probably my fault. Please everybody let's make sure I stick to beer for the rest of my life; now let us never speak of this again. 2018 can't help but kick ass :D
1.1 01:24 
Again, just trying to catch up with Adri
1.1 01:21 
He's so far ahead of me on selfies I'll never catch up

FACEBOOK NO
31.12 18:39 OK, here we go. Inspired by Danny's yearly concert attendance list (which, if you think mine is long, you GOTTA go see his as it's WAY more impressive), here's the list of most all the nights I spent out of the house in 2017. Thanks to everybody who shared them with me!

31.12 14:58 I forgot to talk about new music this year because almost all my "new" music was by old fogeys making triumphant returns with 2017 releases - Black Grape, Sparks, OMD, Depeche Mode, friggin' Blancmange get outta here - locally, I really liked The Awful Truth's release but they had an album release concert in January and then WE NEVER HEARD FROM THEM AGAIN. There was more Nightosaur. Allison got me into Austra and not as much into Xiu Xiu. Kat got me into The Contortionist and White Moth Black Butterfly. Kris introduced me into St. Vincent...alas, not literally. I've forgotten so much already, I'm sure - want to compile my list of concerts a la Danny but that may take longer than I would care to take. Anyway, new music didn't go anywhere, I'm happy to report. Still haven't really listened to Kraftwerk "in 3D" and don't know what I'm saving it for. Oh, yeah... that UNKLE album.

A good December bumped more photos of MEEEEEEEEEE into my best nine so here's an updated collage - thanks again for the validation ;-) (2017 Best Nine)

If you play "Burn the Bastards" precisely at 11:55:15, promise to also kill whoever came up with this meme and start the new year off right - HOLY CRAP THIS SONG IS THREE DECADES OLD I'M OLD YOU'RE OLD EVERYTHING IS OLD

"...and a very Happy New Year from BBC1."

Geez, it's like they're not even trying any more (and actually they're not, how long's it been since I posted one of these?) - I'm not even sure what kind of a name is "Pais Carl"
28.12 23:48 
I don't understand it; I've seen Adri do this countless times and he always looks so much better than me
27.12 18:38 
YAHOO
27.12 07:05 
Damn, it's cold, yo. It definitely wasn't this cold when I left. Dead mouse #3 greeted me when I stepped into the kitchen, so we're back to normal fairly quickly around these parts. Toilet hasn't frozen yet, hooray! Moving the space heater down there so hopefully it won't freeze at all. Need to sleep for 12 hours, at which time the next Wolves home game should be tipping off. See you at Transmission, probably!
