Fundraiser for American Diabetes Association update

22 08 2014

The Hit Me In the Nuts With Things to Fight Diabetes  fundraiser is up and running.

  • Clarifications to the organizer’s website(s)
  • Built a Facebook portal and an event page
  • Clarified and improved the rules for sponsorship and what each level of involvement entails.
  • Included use of a waiver for legal purposes
  • Contacted a representative of a company that sells state-of-the art athletic cups to check force loading parameters
  • Allowed for improvised items to be thrown. For example, a frozen carp is permitted. The only foreseeable limit is the disqualification of jagged, or jagged and dense, or exceedingly dense objects, such as, but not limited to: hatchets, cannonballs, chunks of concrete, bricks.
  • The four default missiles remain as follows: a banana, a baguette, a frozen bag of green peas, or an old man’s shoe will be provided for entrants, sponsors, or passersby.
  • If you cannot make it, your throws can be given away free of charge to strangers walking by at the park, under the condition that they throw the items you have specified, in the order you have indicated. For example, SILVER MEMBER sponsor Ryan Davis has four throws coming to him, but won’t make it, and will opt to have a passersby throw an old man’s shoe at my most prized possessions four times in a row.*
  • Company sponsorship, T-shirts, stickers and medals (hand-etched, custom swag!) are the official gimmicks.If you can’t make it, your swag will be mailed to you, free shipping.

So, thanks for your input, everyone. This is going to be an awesome way to raise awareness of the struggle one endures with Type 1 Diabetes. Again, all proceeds go to the American Diabetes Association.

My brother has had Type 1 diabetes for over thirty years. That’s the bad kind, the one that journalists don’t use to generate bullshit “possible-cure-around-the-corner” articles you see in the news every week. It’s the kind you can’t manage without insulin, and that shit is expensive. And it’s bad.

All proceeds go to the American Diabetes Association.

Monday Funk – Herbie Mann w/ “Push Push”

11 08 2014


Featuring Duane Allman on guitar, some flute funk to set it off.

If you want more than a taste, check out his album Memphis Underground, considered to be Hunter S. Thompson’s favorite LP of the 1960s. (The photo is from the album Memphis Two-Step, not Memphis Underground, but it’s super bad-ass, admit it.)



Fun With Google Image Search

8 08 2014

Google has an image-based search engine. I decided to match  images to see what would happen, you know, to see what Google thought was the closest thing to the images I picked. I have before you some of the results. The images to the left are original submissions, and the images to the right are Google’s closest derivatives. These images are the first choice.

So I give: (play this and meditate)

I remember the time I saved a bird that was snagged by a hook on a fishing line tangled in some bushes. The bird was frightened of me until I held it gently and explained to it what I would do to back the hook out of its flesh. It completely relaxed and let me. It flew away. For the rest of the day I felt like I had fulfilled my reason for existing on Earth. If nothing else, I was given something impossible. this. We have to give. We have to give.
