DIY Cut Off Jean Lace Shorts. Another easy and pretty tutorial from Clones & Clowns here.

Seeing someone wear these would blow my mind. Classy and sexy, draws attention to the cutoffs without being overwhelming, I’m jealous that lace doesn’t gel well with male fashion.

It is still visited on occasion by fishermen, French Navy patrols, scientific researchers, film crews, and shipwreck survivors.

hahaha okay, one of those groups isn’t visiting per se

Because on April 20th this year I was reading books by the charming fellows quoted below, so I didn’t really have time to type up those quotes.

I like these cause they’re both pointing out institutional hypocrisy from a non-self-motivated position. It isn’t “man, weed is great man” (even though Hicks does do a bit of that at times,) it’s “hey this is indicative of the many ways that your lives are fucked on a daily basis. It’s a small piece of the overlying puzzle, and when your grandma finishes assembling its 1000 pieces, she’s going to be shocked by the picture of you taking a reaming.”

The fact that these two are dead is one of the few things that can make me feel sad.

I quit doing drugs. I used to take drugs and I quit. But I’ll tell you something honestly about drugs, and I don’t think this is said enough anymore- I mean, it’s the truth: I had a great time doing drugs. Hahahahaha! Sorry. Never murdered anybody, never robbed anybody, never raped anybody, never beat anybody, never lost a job, a car, a house, a wife, or kids, laughed my ass off, and went about my day. Sorry.

I have never heard one reason that rang true why marijuana is against the law. Never heard one reason that rang true why marijuana is against the law. Marijuana grows all over the world, serves a thousand different functions, ALL of them positive. To make marijuana against the law is like saying God made a mistake. You know what I mean? It’s like God on the seventh day looked down on his creation, and he said, ‘There it is, my creation. Perfect and holy in all ways. Now I can rest… Oh my Me! I left fucking pot everywhere. I should never have smoked that joint on the third day, shit. Boy, if I leave pot everywhere, it’s gonna give people the impression they’re supposed to use it. Shit! Now I have to create Republicans.’

I am not promoting the use of drugs, I’m just saying if you’re gonna have a war against drugs, have ‘em against all drugs including alcohol, the number one offender, or shut the fuck up. And oh, by the way, my simple pleasurable advice would be: shut the fuck up. Ha ha ha ha ha. Just shut up. Your ways are tired, your point of view is meaningless, and you live hollow fucking lives.

Bill Hicks, “Recorded Live at Funny Bone, Pittsburgh, PA,” Love All The People, 1991.

I don’t smoke pot, and I’m glad because then I can champion it without special pleading. The reason I don’t smoke it is because it facilitates ideas and heightens sensations—and I’ve got enough shit flying through my head without smoking pot.
At this time, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the State will present its closing argument in the case against marijuana: It leads to the use of heroin and other dangerous, addictive drugs.
If this syllogism holds true, the bust-out junkie will say to his cellmate: ‘I am a heroin addict. I started smoking marijuana and then naturally I graduated to heroin. By the way, my cellmate, what happened to you? How did you come to murder three guys in a crap game? You’ve got blood on your hands. How did you first get obsessed with this terrible disease of gambling? Where did it all start?’
‘Oh, I started gambling with Bingo in the Catholic Church.’

Lenny Bruce, How To Talk Dirty and Influence People, 1965.

Do you think this just presents itself in his mind or he constructs it based on its components as he goes? And that’s really all I have to offer here

In the wake of the killing Trayvon Martin … the company Koch which manufactures paper products is paying for Zimmerman’s legal fees because they feel he had legal right to bare arms and shoot Trayvon. We are asking that people everywhere ban together with us and pass…

I can’t find any proof of this. I mean, boycott the Koch brothers for being evil, but if this is true it’s way under the radar.

My heart goes out to the Helm extended family, especially Larry and Teresa. I know he loved you all as much as you loved him

The last passage here really bummed me out. But re-reading the opening was an effective counterweight.
