Sweet corn for all

Sweet corn for all at the Lodi Sweet Corn Festival. This is one of the three things Lodi happens to make its name on the map for other than Amish and the Outlet mall, because if you passed through and blinked, you would miss it. It's a 26year(s) running, 3 day festival (July 19-21) held down at Letha Field that starts out with a parade and includes fair food, games, rides, and other activities. The other big thing that goes on around here is the Medina County Fair which by far exceeds that of the Festival. You can view pictures I have taken of the parade and festival on my flickr account!

Pot Terrorist

You are a terrorist if you grow pot. Well; according to Drug Czar, John P. Walters, growers have been known to have weapons, including assault rifles. "These people are armed; they're dangerous," he said. He called them "violent criminal terrorists."

The cost of war

Found a page on the cost of war. I don't know how accurate it is, but it's probably close and thats a lot of money. And since we are talking about cost, have a look at the office of the president's spending.

The Recipe Split

Left to right: Jason Hastings, John Welton, Joe Prichard, Andy Shepherd

So I just read yesterday that one of my favorite jambands, The Recipe, is now splitting up. Total bummer! It's really weird considering that they just released a CD (called Jubilee) last year. Their tunes are mostly rock, and have a very positive message for the most part. Basically their music makes you want to move your feet, dancing and singing along. Suffice it to say that they will be greatly missed.

On a happier note, this 80's and 90's pop culture site that I read regularly is being updated daily with great articles over the summer (an event called the Summer Megaparty)--just click the 'Blog' link at the top, or browse the huge amount of older articles the site's creator Matt has written.

No arrests on Sundays or July 4th in Ohio

Did you know that if you live in Ohio, like I do; you can't get arrested on July 4th or Sundays or traveling to a place of worship, if you do; you get $100 back. Read more here. Now their are some restrictions, but still, its an interesting law none the less.

Stay out of prison w/the help from a Bush

President Bush has cleared the 2 1/2 year prison sentence of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby for the CIA leak case. Read this article for a brief explanation on what's going on. Or, you can read this article for a very in depth explanation to find out how INSANE it is for a President to be able to stop a court sentence of someone that was fairly tried under the Supreme Court. Simplified explanation!

That's a huge...

Came across quite a truck of an audio system (if that makes sense). I couldn't find much other info on this thing except from what I can see in the pictures. It looks like its running nine(9) 10inch MOFO-10 subwoofers with eleven(11) amps. Hard telling what kind of amps from the pictures but they would have to be enough to put 1500watts rms to each sub. I would like to see the size of that things alternator to give it all that power.

Freedom of Speech

I came across an interesting blog post today about the freedom of speech. To make a long story short read the article because I don't want to explain. More info here.
***UPDATE*** (6/28) The case has been decided and apparently according to wikipedia's site, Because schools may take steps to safeguard those entrusted to their care from speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use, the school officials in this case did not violate the First Amendment by confiscating the pro-drug banner and suspending Frederick.
So really, the sign should have looked like this...

The star bomb

There is a really big star (100-150 times the size of our sun) that is going to explode soon, also known as a supernova. The name of the star is Eta Carinae. Their is a small chance it could shoot matter towards earth and kill everything on our planet. Just thought I would pass that along in case their was something important you had to do soon.

Geauga Lake

Went to Geagua Lake for Fathers Day this past weekend with Miranda. Surprisingly, it was not at all crowded. Every ride had only a 5 minute wait or less. Also swam for a little while in the wave pool at wild water kingdom which is the water park portion of Geagua Lake. All in all it was a really, really great time. You can get discount tickets from Drug Mart for $23 which is a pretty good deal if your interested in ever going.

Taxodermy, or is it

Instructables has a page on the taxodermy of mice. Although, Is this even right?

If you look at me, you'll pop.
Can you guess the riddle?

Pan's Labyrinth and Pink Floyd Goodness

OK, so I finally saw Pan's Labyrinth yesterday night with Jesse J and Miranda, and holy crap! Definitely an awesome movie! It had this totally surreal feel going on the whole time, and I was diggin' it! I think leaving it in Spanish and adding the English subtitles made it better than if they had tried to dub it into English. Definitely not a kid's movie though--the violence in that movie was kinda extreme! Definitely worth a look though, for all who haven't seen it yet. On another note, yesterday I spoke with Eroc, the lead singer/bass player for Wish You Were Here (the best Pink Floyd tribute band around today) and he wants me to help with more promo stuff for their upcoming shows. So if anyone is interested, I will be getting some posters, flyers, and handbills soon--just let me know if you want some, or know anyone I should hook up with some stuff. Trust me, these guys rock- just ask Kris or Jesse J--they've both been to a few shows and can attest to WYWH's rocking-ness (that's right, I created a new word.)

So I've started learning how to glowstring recently, and it's definitely a lot of fun. It's pretty simple to start doing--you just tie a shoestring to a glowstick in a loop, tie another one for our other hand, and just start swinging. But without practice you'll end up hitting yourself and tangling the strings up more often than doing anything remotely cool looking. Below are some links to glowstringing-related sites, as well as an awesome poi (fire spinning) site. Enjoy.
