My nuts smell like pee.

I self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to help treat my extreme social anxiety.

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

glad to see everything here is still on the up and up. Carry on, bros.

I have lost my voice, so I'm giving everyone the silent (kit) treatment.

I heard - he came to my 40th birthday party in december!

Some crazy things happened at my work and I got a promotion out of it and between that, regular life, and podcasting for Chunky Glasses, I just haven't had any free time to kick it on the board. But then I saw that the Jicks are touring again and my heart longed for my favorite corner of the internet, right here.

I would sometimes think about this board going away and it, like, hurt to imagine an internet without you all. Thanks for still being here. Everything may be shit, but we've still got this thing here.

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

I've got the shits this morning, if anyone can sympathize.

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

May each and every one of you be blessed with joy and contentment howsoever.

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

My hair is turning silver, or maybe it's just white but I like to pretend it's silver, my knees are paying the price of a lifetime of dancing without bothering to warm up or cool down, my kids are grown and out of the house (but, seemingly, not out of my pocketbook any chance they get), and so I'm doing midlife stuff like redecorating my house and oohing and ahhing over little babies when I see them.

I'm bringing Chloë (who will be a recent college grad then) to the Jicks show in DC — anyone else going? 

Last night I dreamt I was in DC at a solar conference and it dawned on me in my lucidity that I smelled pot _because_ I was in DC. And then I was like, "I'm in DC, I can get pot!" And then someone gave me some pot as a gift but I had to hold these two big buds in my hand with no place to put them and I was searching all around for an appropriate container for my stash. I woke up and immediately thought, "Hmmm...what are the rules on actually getting pot in DC?" because to outsiders, it's very confusing. Can you just get it somewhere, legit, and not funkified? It's just plain cruel that pot is illegal, at least where I live. I'd love some pot! Tips?

Pot possession is being legalized in Canada as of July 1st. It will be sold at government run liquor stores in my province. Come for a visit:).

I love Canada. I'll never forget the sensation of crossing from ZMaine to Nova Scotia, getting off the ferry and instantaneously feeling as if the world was less tense, less militaristic, less commercial. Plus I love getting out of Dodge for just about any reason. now I have one more reason to go north!

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

Hey, folks.  I haven't checked in for a bit.  I saw Animal Collective perform twice this weekend in New Orleans at a super cool venue called The Music Box Village.  It was all new "site-specific" music, and it was absolutely incredible.

I don’t think DC has legal distribution figured out yet but my friends there use an app called LeafedIn that seems to be huge there. You can probably have it discreetly delivered to your hotel to be honest.

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

kate h, there are definitely delivery services and plenty of creative ways to skirt the restrictions. The gentleman toker blog has some advice there, and LeafedIn is a good resource. I'll message you some other thoughts before the show (which I'm going to!) This is also a place with some helpful tips and links (Caroline is a friend-of-a-friend) - https://brightestyoungthings.com/articl … e-phillips

Zen - glad you are doing well.

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

i'm good.  we seem to keep moving farther and farther from DC since that's what my wife likes (we're actually outside of Montgomery County now), which is sort of sad, but i don't mind it too much.  my son is 2 and is a handful, of course, but all is well on that front.  i'm still stuck in a bit of a shitty position job wise, but fingers crossed that will change soon

Re: hey, what's new with everybody?

i truly want to see malkmus in DC in June, but, for the first time in my life, I'm thinking about passing. The thought of driving down there (From northern baltimore) on a sunday night just doesn't excite me like it used to.   #gettingold

do you know the guy in Blankus Larry?

I did a podcast ep with him a few weeks back and he's up in Frederick now after living in Columbia Heights for a bunch of years. Said they even kidnapped one of the alley cats and gave him a nice home up in the country.
