I’m not gonna sugarcoat this.  I’ve had a really bad week.  From many different fronts.

Frankly, I’m pissed off at the world and just about everyone in it.  And I’m not in the mood to talk about it.

So at the very least, you’re not gonna have to read my ramblings this week.  You folks can count yourselves lucky there.

But a few very good men, whose names totally don’t rhyme with, BallsofSteelandFury, Low Commander of the Super Soldiers, and Rikki-Tikki-Deadly ….  Well, I guess the best way to say it is that they talked me down and/or called me out on my bullshit, respectively.

Life has kinda stunk more often than not for me lately.  There are reasons for that, but again I’m not in the mood to talk about it.  Admittedly, some days, I don’t handle it as well as I might wish.

But when you have friends who care?  Good people who genuinely care and who will expend their time because they’re concerned about you?  Friends who are willing to tell you what you NEED to hear, instead of just what you WANT to hear?  Even if it’s just by being honest with you and telling you you’re being an asshole when you’re being an asshole?  You see where I’m going here?

That’s a pretty good deal.  That’s tough to beat.  I count myself lucky there.  I’ll take it.

(thank you, gentlemen….sincerely)


Drippy Drippy

Anywhoooooo….

FWIW, this week’s theme was Low Commander’s suggestion as well.  And it was a good one.  I think he must have seen this girl and… welllllll…..yeah….

Sexy Ice Cream is this week’s theme.

More on that in just a bit.  For now, you’ll have to wait.

At Least One Thing Went Well This Week

(aka your tWBS weed growing update for the week)

Would you lookit that little bastard right there?  I’m quite proud of myself here.  Those little squiggly white things at the top is a developing bud.

I can’t believe this plant recovered.  It literally got too top heavy and fell over on its side.  I thought the main stem was broken and that it was a goner.  I then stole some of my mother’s knitting needles (please don’t tell her) and staked them down and used them to prop it up.  And then it went batshit crazy the last coupla weeks as far as growth and flowering.

There are eight more buds (most out of frame) which are also flowering.  For now, they’re all very small and nothing to brag about.  But I might be able to harvest some and smoke it by Christmas.

Come on down that chimney, Santa.  I got you covered up in here.

DUDE?????????

OK, well please don’t call the cops and report me or I’ll have to kill his jolly fat ass.

And yes, I’m still waiting on that Colecovision system I asked for from 1982, you damned lying prick.

(I could have saved sooooooo many quarters if Santa hadn’t screwed me over)

This Week in DFO

I’m lazy this week so I’m not gonna do a full rundown.  And besides, it’s no contest this week.  Everyone did great work this week, don’t get me wrong.  We have about the best team of writers I could ever imagine having.

(although sometimes our judgement is questionable….maybe)

However….

As usual, BeerGuyRob  anchored many of the week’s open threads.  But he also did this, and this, and this, and this, and this.

BeerCanBobby  is Employee of the Week this week, far and away.

Plus, perhaps coincidentally, or perhaps not, he’s also now the newest co-owner of DFO, too!!!

And that’s a good thing.  A really good thing.

Le’Veon Bell could not be reached for comment.

Fuck. I forgot to get ice cream.

Where is rundmc today?

yeah right

You don’t a fucking cheeseburger!

You want a steak!

Doktor Zymm

Correct

yeah right

Last Betting tip.

Bournemouth covers.

blaxabbath

Did the haunted corn maze thing for “date night” tonight. Wife’s really into Halloween so I get stoned and go along. Otherwise, forget anything scary bro.

Question though: what’s with the assholes who go and like specifically have a bad time with everything? The dude’s who go through this stuff so slow that groups catch up to his and it ruins the scares? Like, just don’t go.

We know it’s amateur actors. It’s overpriced. Those aren’t real serial killers. Like, what’s the fun I’m being hard and showing you’re not scared? So the other guys at the plant hear about this and now you’re the badass because you stared down the chainsaw-welding psycho actor who was never going to actually cut you because it’s all a show?

Doktor Zymm

Under like, 20, I guess I get it. If they ain’t kids, fuck em that dumb

blaxabbath

Had a group of young-20’s (like three chicks and a guy who doesn’t talk)behind us in line. The characters who kind of mingle with the crowd are doing their deal and this one chick is so annoying about how she isn’t scared.

I was hoping she’d be the first of a mystery killer who was hidden amongst the corn maze. I love a good mystery and her getting killed would have been a worthwhile one.

It’s real if you kick him in the back into the welcoming teeth of that chainsaw.

yeah right

Are y’all as high as I am?

Wakezilla

tWBS, you did the Lord’s work tonight, amigo. Good hustle.

yeah right

Is it OK if I get the juke box?

Doktor Zymm

Good choice, I love Spanish Bombs myself

Doktor Zymm

I caught some decent stuff, but I’m by the wrong spacetime for most. Like all of first wave ska

Doktor Zymm

I would short term time travel to Prince Buster

Wakezilla

Here is your Wakezilla is on the trip from hell update: The Port I’m staying at has now entered its “Winter” season. Currently, it’s midnight and 89 outside. Also, I’m covered in mosquito bites. Based on how this trip has gone, one of them is probably Zika.

This has been your Wakezilla is on a trip from Hell update.

Doktor Zymm

At least you aren’t pregnant!

Beerguyrob

Is that what we’re calling ringworm infection?

yeah right

It’s official name is

“Ass Herpes.”

Doktor Zymm

I’m reasonably certainly that’s only infectious if you sit in cowboy piss

Wakezilla

Who am I to question how Rancheros prep their carne ensalad?

Wakezilla

Ring worm infection? I’d be down for a quick loss of 25 lbs

/Someone whispers into Wakezilla ear

That’s not what Ring Worm does? Ahhhh!

Doktor Zymm

Wrong worm, but love the spirit!

Wakezilla

If only it was the same worm that goes in Tequila bottles

Doktor Zymm

Right?? And also, do they still do that?

Wakezilla

That would be quite the feat!

Doktor Zymm

I miss nonsense. Wtf is beefcake pantyhose?

Doktor Zymm

Plus Beck got to guest on Futurama. Rick and Morty haven’t gotten there yet

Doktor Zymm

My favorite record as a kid (and yes, actual record). Nektar. Spelled that way cause I’m reasonably certain they were a 70s band.

So, I’ve noted three of the four teams’ slogans during the NLCS and ALCS

Brewers: Our Crew Our October
Astros: Never Settle
Sox: Do Damage
Dodgers: Couldn’t see one in the dugout or find one online. Guess having no slogan fits in with some kind of West Coast coolness/ennui? Given the other three teams’ choices, I guess I’m down with that.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

That Dodger slogan is kind of odd.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Certainly is a mouthful.

Wakezilla

That’s what she said

Wakezilla

The Dodgers: “You know, like Whatever”

yeah right

I’m going to steal from the High School reunion thing.

Next year is 40 years.

Wrap your heads around that.

I guess this was our class song.

I didn’t have a vote or it would have probably been not Bob Segar.

My class song.

Never heard of that guy, but was pleased to see the Beto O’Rourke ad at the beginning.

All us stoners wanted “Working Man” by Rush. The society bitches and jocks got “Long Time” by Boston selected. Not that either of them would have been singable at the commencement. But I’ve had a pathological hatred for the band Boston for over 40 years.

yeah right

You graduated in 1977 or 78 if I had a guess.

Viva La Tabula Raza

77 it was.

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m out of the loop as far as everything new, but what’s music like nowadays? I hear teens are more depressed than ever, hope that’s got some upside, artistic or otherwise

Doktor Zymm

I mean, wtf is the point of having an opiod epidemic if you don’t get a Nirvana or a Velvet Undeground or a Trainspotting out of it?

Doktor Zymm

Hell, Basketball Diaries. What is today’s heroin addict doing for history and art?

yeah right

There’s some stuff if you look for it.

I like these guys.

They want to be Led Zeppelin so bad.

And they’re fucking kids.

Wakezilla

Most of the new generation of rappers have Lil as a first name and have face tattoos. It even sounds depressing

Check out Lil Xan (short for Xanax) to see what I’m talking about.
