  1. My buddy is good friends with the guys of Flatfoot 56. They're really cool guys. I've only ever seen them at a show where myself and two other people were the only ones slamming. I'll probably see them live again in Chicago. Hopefully it will be a better show.


    I lovvvveeeeeeee old school punk rock, still listen to it a bunch, and even the newer stuff i listen to sounds a lot like the old stuff. Chronic Seizure is my favorite local punk band from Chicago. There's also a few other bands, Intifada, I Attack, The Catburgulars, who i've seen live over the years in houses or basements in Chicago. I never had anybody to go to shows with in High School and it's nice to have college aged kids to go to shows with. My buddy and I are gonna live together when he graduates and will probably be hitting the Chicago punk scene hard.


    I also love Swedish punk and hardcore. Regulations are my favvvvvv.

  2. I baught a Klean Kanteen but it makes my water taste metalic. It is a stainless steal container. I saw that whole foods carries the aluminum canteens but does not look like I want to purchase aluminum. Some claim the inside liners are not so great. Anyone one have a water container that does not make me drink liquid metal.... ????


    The metal containers are the best honestly. I use the whole food one and love it. They'll seriously last 15 years. I don't taste anything metallic in mine either.

  3. Hello,


    I'm going to be visiting my girlfriend and staying for Christmas and the new year and I would like to get some suggestions for good places to eat and shop for food in various cities.


    I'll be flying into San Francisco and spending two nights there with my girlfriend, then heading to her home in Ohio. She lives in Athens, but some of the cities we'll be spending time in at some point will probably include Columbus, Cleveland, Sandusky & Norwalk. It's time to meet the extended family! ..


    We're also going Chicago for NYE and apart from that we haven't made any other plans at this stage.


    I'll do some searching, but I'd like to hear about experiences from people here too. So if anyone can suggest some restaurants, cafes, shops etc for me to check out in those areas I'd really appreciate it.




    When you're in Chicago you gotta try and go to The Chicago Diner, The Blind Faith Cafe, and Soul Vegetarian East. Not sure where I'll be NYE, but if I'm free I could try and meet up with youze guyze.


    No clue about Ohio. It's personally my least favorite state ever but everyone else seems to like it.

  4. Porn wars is such a terrible title. Surely:


    Pornstar Wars: The Phantom Penis

    Pornstar Wars: The Clone Penis

    Pornstar Wars: Revenge of the Penis

    Pornstar Wars: A New Penis

    Pornstar Wars: The Penis Stikes Back

    Pornstar Wars: Return of the Penis


    Unfortunately they weren't that creative. They just had Ep 1-3 at the Family Video we got it at.

  5. I watched Run Lola Run and The Edukators this weekend. Both were fucking fantastic. I also watched Porn Wars (terrible but hilarious star wars themed porno that is really fun to watch while drinking Fat Tire amber ale with your friends) and part of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    I'm gonna pass out from the yummyness.

  8. I think i should be getting a raise. I'm back together with my girlfriend. I'm going down to my old school that I'm not going back to this semester (thank god) to party with friends this weekend AND visit my girlfriend and her parents! roxxors!

  9. What is the difference, is it primarily that it is bigger chunks?



    Yeah and you can definitely taste the spinach or whatever greens you put in it no matter how much fruit you add to it. With a vitamix or blendtec there are no chunks at all and it's totally smooth and delicious. Plain spinach is great, but when you blend it up it can be a little funky. I still do it cause I honestly kind of like the taste even if it's not perfectly blended. I still might get a vitamix or blendtec in a couple of months.

  10. God damn. I cannot afford this. Looking at your prices, I was assuming it'd be like £200. But it's £400 for me in this country. That's $800. There is a blendtec blender going for £800. That's $1,600. What's going on!? I want to try a green smoothie, but I don't want to spend this much to experiment with something that I may dislike


    It is possible to make them with cheaper blenders, they're just nowhere near as good as when you have professional equipment. You can sort of get the idea though with a cheaper blender.
