Saturday Night House Party Situations... Purt Duex...

Josh report. Today, dude got out of bed and vaporized and then started playing mp3s. DJ Punk Rock Episode.

Damn Canadians! No one understands what they're saying! They screw everything they say up and most of them are French! Can you get any worse? Sorry, I'm just a little angry today because this kid I know has a certain wrestling hotline, I think I've mentioned before, and he kept making me update it! So I just updated it with me bashing the crap out of him! If you want to hear it, call Area Code (215) 219-7723. Not only will you hear me talking, but you'll hear me rip apart this kid for about a minute! Peace I'm out!

The Long Road Ahead...

They let Josh out of the hospital today. He's still really groggy and can't get around much without getting dizzy. You'd be dizzy too if you fell 8 feet and landed on your skull.

By the way, this is the 100th post of "Livin' the Dream." Thanks for caring.

So here's the deal, Josh is going to be okay, (insert collective sigh here). He does have a fractured skull and doesn't really know what's going on. I went to see him in the I.C.U. today and he didn't even know I was there. He did however have enough energy to yell at the nurse when she tried to fix his blanket... And the doctor felt it was an appropiate time to give me a lecture on the imoprtance of wearing a helmet while skateboarding. He even used a "Jackass" reference to prove he was "down." What a kook.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our homie Josh Vasquez, who is currently in the I.C.U. at Highland Hospital in Oakland after an unfortunate skateboarding incident at the 510 demo in Berkeley today. We've all got our fingers crossed here at headquarters and will keep you posted as to what the fuck is going on. Hang in there bro, you'll be home soon.

Nick Valencia at Red Devil... and nobody knows why it's called Red Devil. Hmm.

Did you ever have one of those days where everything seems like a dream and no matter how hard you try you can't wake up? Yeah me either.

Daily Quote:
"No, there were alot of good ideas, though. I thought it was very practical to have police officers to stand for election in the districts they patrolled, keeping in mind how violent police officers are in America - you've seen the video of Rodney King - the Los Angeles police did that to fans of my band as well, on more than one occasion, and that wouldn't happen if people got to vote on who their cops were, I thought that was very practical. And even the clown suits was in actually in reply to Diane Feinstein, who was the encumbant mayor who was re-elected and who is now in the United States senate as a lobyist for Indonesia, for all practical pursoses. Anyway, she said she wanted to clean up San Fransisco, and she mean't the other end of Market Street. I thought `no, the stuff where the dirty stuff goes on is Chevron headquarters, Bank of America headquarters' and thats where I thought they should wear the clown suits."

Situation of the Week:
Students Heading to Prom Call Cops on Drunk Driver . . . of the Limo They Were Riding In!
- It's supposed to be a night you never forget, but for several high school students from Winter Springs, Florida it was even more special: the driver of their limo was drunk. After dinner the kids realized their driver was having trouble with basic traffic rules and decided to call 911. They managed to keep the 49-year-old driver, Christina Tomacelli, from getting onto the highway (that would not have been cool) by telling her the needed to check directions to the promo location. Instead, they called police. Here's their discussion with the 911 dispatcher:
9-1-1 Caller:
"I rented a limo for my kids to go to prom."
9-1-1 Dispatcher:
"Uh huh?"
"The driver is drunk."
"Oh, you're kidding."
For her part, Tomacelli claims she wasn't drunk on prom night and claimed the source of her erratic driving was an injured knee. The kids and officers disagree, saying that Tomacelli admitted to drinking and had a half-empty bottle of vodka in the car. History is also against her, having been arrested in the past 15 years for DUI three times, as well as multiple citations for open container violations, operating an unsafe vehicle, passing in the wrong lane, and not wearing a seatbelt.

Saturday Night House Party Situations.

The usual suspects, were rocking out... kitchen-wise.


The Exposure played an epic set in the living room as thier friends danced and sang along.

Skateboard art du jour.

Extreme escape route situation. This is not a drill. Kids were jumping off of the roof when the cops came. It was only a little sketchy.

A good time was had by all, I think.

Thank you to hostess Dj Cookie Monster who delt with the police with such grace. And she can blend Ipods and slipmats like nobody's business.
