    these are the top ten upvoted from that thread

    Blind people smile like everyone else, even though they’ve never seen anyone else smile. It’s just a natural human expression.

    That every person who comments on your post is thinking of you.

    For a brief moment in time, you were a moment in someone’s life. A mere extra, passing through their thoughts in milliseconds, but milliseconds of their story nonetheless. For every person you’ve exchanged eye contact with, you have made a contribution to their existence, be it significant or not.

  3. the bears lost which pretty much ruined my day 

    bears lions

    in real life im the most normal nice polite person youd ever wanna meet.

    but when the bears are on… and i think they should win… and if their season looks promising

    i will yell at the top of my lungs at the tv

    the only time my neighbors know i exist is during football season

    bbq, screaming, cursing

    and occasionally great laughing.

    its very easy to be a football fan. theres only like 16 games a year for your team.

    the games only last 3 hours tops cuz everyones fat.

    and you only need to know the names of like three of the guys on each team.

    theres even a piss break in the middle of the game so people can ignore the band.

    tickets in chicago start at $250 for the worst seat imaginable.

    youre basically in indiana.

    we paid half that to see the raiders and the bears in the club section on the 0 yard line in oakland

    that was the only game i ever went to where i didnt care who won, they were both my teams

    my real team

    and my california adopted team.

    who both drive me crazy

    especially today. all day.

    Miley Cyrus on living in LA compared to NY 

    Miley Cyrus on living in LA compared to NY

    The thing about L.A. is it’s pretty much always nice out here.

    Even when it was 100 the other day, I loved it.

    It felt good.

    I worked on my album in Philly, and I would take the train to New York on the weekends,

    and I’d get off the train

    and immediately want to die.

    I would just hate my life.

    And I’m from Nashville, which is kind of similar – when it’s hot, it’s fucking miserable.

    But Nashville, at least it kind of rains in the summer.

    I don’t even remember the last time it rained out here.

    I always wondered how those big-ass fires start in L.A.,

    and then I’ll throw my cigarette out the window or something,

    and I’m like

    “There it is.”

  5. my mother has known me a fairly long time. several decades at least 

    mom text

    she lives in chicago.

    pretty close to Oprah.

    Da Bears going into this game are undefeated.

    when I was out there I watched the first two games with her.

    Everyone in Chicago is super pumped for this season.

    I can’t imagine she didn’t know that on

    SUNDAY

    in the AFTERNOON,

    the odds are pretty good

    that the Bears are on TV

    playing football.

    and that i would be watching it.

    but she loves me and i love her

    so she just thinks im waiting to find out what my sister won

    at the church auction.

    well now the whole world knows.

    great job angie.

    as soon as i get a job im buying my mom

    a bigger tv

    that automagically turns on on Sundays

    when the Bears are playing

    even though they’re losing big time today

    because Jay Cutlers mom didnt tell him to get his head in the game today

    in fact Jay should pay for my moms new TV

    because this is ridiculous

    and i cant even believe this is happening

    all last year the Lions only won 4 games

    and here they are in the end of the 3rd creaming the bears 37-16

    no wonder my mom cares more about the St. Viator’s freaking gala more than the Monsters of the Midway

    on the Lord’s Day

    on a beautiful fall day in America. Damn you Jay Cutler. Damn you to h-e double hockey sticks.

  8. Ian MacKaye on what he respected about The Grateful Dead 

    ian mackaye

    I think they’re interesting structurally, in retrospect, for instance their business and the way they flexed their muscles in a good way. In the late 80s or early 90s, before Jerry died, they did these stadium shows, and they had their own ticketing system. They sold tickets directly, and at some point during this stadium tour, Ticketmaster didn’t want them selling directly. They told The Dead that wasn’t happening anymore, so the band told them, “Okay, you’re fired.” And then so Ticketmaster tried to backtrack. At least that’s what I heard, I’m not sure if that’s necessarily true. But anyways, they operated well, they weren’t bullied by the machine. You get that sort of power by saying “No.”

  9. found out some bad news today, and yesterday, and last night 

    dicisions tattoo

    but at least i didnt get a terrible tattoo which was also misspelt.

    this blog has always been staying positive despite whatever goes down.

    a long time ago i got a fortune cookie that said

    its not what happens, its how you handle it

    and ive always tried to live my life from advice delivered by mass produced desserts.

    some of the bad news was my buddy Dave from the KPCC Patt Morrison Show was being shown the door

    so we took him out drinking last night

    and all agreed that the radio station probably didnt need any more forward thinking creative funny

    radio veterans

    who’d produced people like Pete Rose, Dennis Miller, and Bob Forrest.

    some times people just want challenges, i guess.
