Ramblings From Spring Jam

Spring Jam wasn't all it was cracked up to be, but still a hell of a lot of fun. Unfortunately the weather was not prime, thus grilling outside and beer pong on the street were not to be had. However, caps was played aplenty indoors, and Danny and I discovered once again that one vs. one caps is a horrible idea.

Other things learned: Everclear apparently sucks as a live band now that they don't do drugs. Random dudes coming into your house at three in the morning is always a bad idea, and often lead to the cops being called. A full keg plus not inviting anyone to your house equals waaaaaaaaay too much beer to consume. Slarks can't make it a weekend, much less five weeks, without drinking, even if there is over a thousand dollars riding on it. And finally, I learned that Blarney's can no longer make a decent White Russian, but they still charge over five bucks for each attempt.

Finally, probably the best part of the weekend came on Sunday. I recommend that everyone go out and see this movie. In a hazy state of mind is recommended, but certainly not necessary.

Mos Def, John Malkovich, and dozens of others put up absolutely amazing performances in this movie, which is probably as true to the absurd book as it can be. Definitely worthy of the six bucks I spent on it, and I'll probably be going again. You should all definitely check it out.

On one final note, the house is thinking about having a three man keg race over the weekend. That means, three people to a team, full keg, whoever gets done first is all that is man (or woman, since I think Mal is getting a team together). This is still tentative, but drop a comment if you think you can put together a team that has a prayer of a chance against Old House Ballas (me, Tim, and Wubbs). Also, let us know when a good weekend would be when most people are free. Later all.
