Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.

Servicey!

You are better off than you were four years ago
Apparently the pundits are spending today on the question of whether you are better off than you are four years ago. Above is a graph of the United States seasonally adjusted employment for the past five years. The first plane is placed where Obama took over as pilot. The second plan is where we are now now. You will notice two things:
The planes are at about the same level.
The first plane is in the process of crashing.
You would rather be on plane #2 than plane #1. This is not a difficult question.
I chose seasonally adjusted employment—but you’re welcome to try this yourself with any metric you want. May I suggest United States Exports, the DJIA, and GDP. Some have a bit more turbulence than others—but the overall arch remains consistent. Obama took office in the middle of a crisis. Things turned around relatively quickly. Now the trend is pretty good.

So much Point #3.

We used to have quite the reputation here for neon back in the day… comparatively little survives, but you can find some of it, including the famous Smiling Buddha in a permanent exhibit at the Vancouver Museum.

This last episode of Misfits was a turning point for me, moving my crush slightly away from the marvelously gobby dickhead Nathan (Robert Sheehan) and activating a major case of the screaming sweaty thighs for the hot piece that plays Simon, award-winning Welsh actor Iwan Rheon (who won raves as Moritz in the original London production of Spring Awakening and is also a talented singer/songwriter). In the interest of keeping things spoiler-free for those yet to discover this radness, I’ve cropped out the person he shares this scene with, but I’ve watched it about 4 times already. Who needs the sparkly vampire dude… this guy’s skin is fucking luminous.
If you haven’t, you need to watch the first season (links to all 6 S1 eps here). It’s often described it as “Skins meets Heroes" (I’d throw some Breakfast Club in there, too) and in its first year it won the BAFTA for best drama. Season 2 is getting better all the time (S2 Ep 1 here, Ep 2 here and this week’s amazeballs Ep 3 is here), especially this bit screengrabbed above.

How to Tour in a Band or Whateverby Thor Harris
1-Don’t Complain. Bitching, moaning, whining is tour cancer. If something is wrong fix it or shut the fuck up you fucking dick. goddamn.
2-If you fart, claim it.
3-Don’t Lose shit. Everybody loses shit. Don’t fucking do it. Asshole.
4-Don’t fuck anyone in the band. There are tons of people to fuck who are not in this band. Dumbass.
5-If you feel like shit all the time, drink less beer at the gig. You will play better & feel better. What are you… a child? Some have the endurance for self abuse. Most don’t.
6-Remember the soundman’s name. He will do a better job.
7- Eat oranges. Cures constipation & prevents colds.
8-Masturbate. Duh… Where & when? Be creative. You’re an artist right?
9-If YOU can’t carry your suitcase 3 blocks, it’s too goddamn big.
10-Respect public space in the van. Don’t clutter, you Fuck.
11-If you borrow something, return it. Not Fucked Up.
12-Do not let the promoter dick you or talk you out of the guarantee. If there were not enuf people there, it’s their fault.
13- Driver picks the music.
14-One navigator only (usually sitting shotgun). Everyone else shut the fuck up.
15-Soundcheck is for checking sounds. Shut the fuck up while everyone else is checking.
16-Don’t wander off. Let someone know where you are.
17-Clean up after yourself. What are you… a goddamn toddler?
18-Touring makes everyone bi-polar. Ride the waves as best you can and remember, moods pass. So don’t make any snap decisions or declarations when you are drunk or insane.
19-Fast food is Poison.
20-The guestlist is for friends, family & people you might want to fuck. Everyone else can pay. They have day jobs.
21- Don’t evaluate your whole life while you’re sitting in a janitor closet waiting to go on. You think you’re above having shitty days at work? Shut up & do your goddamn job.
This list was written under the influence of lots of esspresso & anti-depressants while on tour w/ such greats as Shearwater, Swans, Smog, Lisa Germano, Angels of Light, Bill Callahan & many more. I hope this list will help you get along w/ your co-workers whatever your job is. Contributions to the list by Jordan Geiger, Kimberly Burke, Brian Orloff, Brian Phillips Celebrity Gang Bang, Kevin Schneider, Jonathan Meiburg, Michael Gira and some other folks.
Thanks for not being an asshole, Thor Harris

Damn. I thought it was this Thor, because my friends Ani and Mike who played with him have some great tour stories, like going with him to the scrapyard where he buys the metal bars that he bends with his teeth on stage every night. Oh well. Servicey anyway.
