yikes… haven’t posted to the site in a LOONG time… work’s been keepin’ me busy… makes¬† me not wanna look at code when i get home

anyways… i’m 1-0 in both fantasy football leagues (2nd place in points in both also!)… thank you, mark for reggie wayne and baby sproles — i HIGHLY doubt that i can keep this up (esp with mcnabb getting broken)

oh and wtf is up with the padres? as mugatu would say, “those padres, they’re so hot right now”

they’re actually winning series against wild card contenders (but then drop 2 of 3 to the lowly d’bags)

crazy game tho today — gotta love that one dood named adrian gonzalez

2010 — padres return to greatness… or at least get a winning record (i’d be okay with that)

a couple of things about last weekend… it should be noted that it almost didn’t happen for me — i was on the verge (and as i write this, i think i still am) of getting full-blown sick (not aids, at least)

had to take a half day at work and even got “wellness formula” from jimbo’s (per chaunce) — the pills taste nasty, but i think it might’ve helped (more on this later)

so i meet up with mark, dwight, tim, and mitch at the stone brewery 13th anniversary over at the csu san marcos campus…

this was my first time going to one of these things, and boy… i’ve been missing out. it was such a slick time — my only gripe was that it was effington hot… “mike’s beer cheese” was amazing


i still think coconut+porter is a great mix!


we all got sloshed for 3 hours and decide to walk across the street to have some stir fresh mongolian bbq

we get a few feet from the place and mark and dwight suddenly want to chase me down and beat me up… wtf? so i immediately channel adrian petersen and i fuckin’ run… i run and i juke… i almost get hit by cars in the parking lot and on my last juke… i hear a loud THUD behind me… i turn around and i see a mangled mess of limbs and whiteness — it’s mark

he friggin curbstomped himself

he gets up and blood everywhere — dripping from his chin onto his shirt

quickly we get him to a mr. taco bathroom where he washes a little bit — to the disgust of the patrons… as we’re leaving, everyone’s eyes are on the tall white bald bastard and his entourage… i whisper to them, “yea… i kicked his ass”

so then — even tho we were hungry, we decide it’s in mark’s best interest to go to a hospital — i see a “pph” sign (palomar pomerado health — the only reason i know this is because tomlinson does a commercial for them) and we start walking

frick — it’s closed… mark starts whining, “waah… my chest hurts…¬† waah… i’m losing a lot of blood”

so i have to do a quarter mile windsprint back to my car (drunk no more — adrenaline and i sweat it all out) and drive back to the closed clinic and take us to a kaiser permanente

never knew about "intermediate care"
never knew about "intermediate care"

once inside, we are loud and belligerent… so much so that we get kicked out of the waiting room… (actually, tim and i — the quietest of the bunch… the ones who were half asleep — us)

his shirt was white before the fall..

so we ended up going to the lobby and tim actually does something i never knew he could do — sleep… and i try to take a nap… meanwhile, dwight commandeers a wheelchair (three of them actually) and does a tour de france all around the hospital and around the perimeter

mark finally gets out with 8 stitches in his chin, some scrapes and bruises, but nothing else serious

overall… best stone anniversary ever! (it was kinda like the hangover… but not as funny)

oh so if you wanna see the gash (pre-stitches), click here — very graphic tho — looks like a vagina in mark’s chin… it’s breathing too! PIC (if you don’t wanna click on it, it reminded me of kuato in total recall)

“wtf, joe?”

yea i know… the site’s been collecting a bit of dust, which normally means that i’ve been busy with projects or i’m lazy (or both)

so what’s been up?

  • i’m still drinking beer… i’ve broken the goal of 50… and of course i’m behind on writing about them… talk about fanfare, eh? i think i want to blame wordpress for that… first for releasing 2.8, which had tons of issues (or maybe my site design had the issues… nahhhh). but then i just recently upgraded to 2.8.1, which is a lot better, i don’t get as many errors (they’re still there, but i can write posts at least)
    i found out it’s mostly to do with old plugins that aren’t compatible with the new versions… which is lame-o!
  • on the topic of web development, things have been movin’ along well at work and gorirra… i think i’m running myself ragged tho — after these projects on the table, i think i’m gonna take a break somehow… doubt it tho — oh well…
  • hung out with the fpsa kids over the fourth, where our motto was “24 hours to live” — fun times…
  • padres stink, as they are wont to do… effin’ a… football’s right around the corner i guess
  • i twitter a bunch, so you can pretty much follow my going’s-ons there… (left column of my site — booyah)

is that it? i think so… everything’s been pretty much status quo…

ahh… so here’s something — chaunce, andy, and i were talking about clever ways to hide particular files on one’s computer… i’m sure you all have clever ideas, so post it out… you can be “anonymous” if you want (tho i’ll know who you are, you dirty bastard)

i know mark has a folder on his desktop that says, “mark’s 2008 tax stuff” — very clever, mark… very clever.

the lonely island – like a boss


store: stone brewery
type: baltic porter
abv: 8.50%

first of all, if you haven’t been to stone brewery in escondido, you must… even if you don’t drink beer (yea, there are some people out there… *cough* chaunce) — it’s an all-around chill place to eat and meet with friends.

this time i was here for white mark’s birthday

i REALLY enjoy their smoked porter so i wanna try some other type of porter… this is from another local brewery to san diego: lightning. i’ve been to this particular one last year with geoff and greg — we did a three brewery crawl (ballast point and alesmith), but it wasn’t my favorite of all the places… ballast point was (tho that’s some hoppy-ass beer)

anyway… this beer didn’t really hit me as a porter — it had more alcohol taste than anything else… much like a mild tatonka (bj’s — the restaurant, not the… well whatever)

i was a thick beer — worth a shot for a first try, but wouldn’t get it the next time around

beeradvocate: B+
me: B-

first was lolcatz and now there’s keyboard cat (thanks to mark for finding this gem). here are a couple good ones

haley joel and walker hang out!


i was definitely not expecting this to happen to that kid!


is that song stuck in your head yet? cuz i REALLY want that as my ringtone… stat

then on last weekend’s snl, timberlake and sandberg reprised their characters to make an interesting mother’s day song:


not as hoppy as i thought it'd be
not as hoppy as i thought it'd be

store: ?
type: american pale ale
abv: 5.60%

white mark will be happy that i rate this an A

surprises me tho — i thought i wouldn’t like this beer since it’s a pale ale and all… but it’s actually the IPA (dot, not feather) that i’m not really a fan of cuz of the hoppage

it’s really smooth going down and i’d definitely need to keep this one in mind for the future

is it sierra nevada that has a bum rap? for some reason, i keep thinking that they aren’t looked at too highly. is it a douchebag beer? kinda makes sense since mark likes it…. oooooh

beeradvocate: A-
me: A

this new movie looks pretty sick: moon

vertigo-inducing movie poster
vertigo-inducing movie poster

from the trailer, i’d say it’s like 2001, minus the boring parts — it even has a HAL type character that uses various smiley faces to show emotion


i forget how mark described sam rockwell — like a poor man’s dax shepard [imdb] maybe?

how can you NOT watch a movie where the phrase “tour de force” is used?

i’m sure mark’s told everyone, but he actually snared jd drew’s homerun ball the other day at angels stadium

“when i caught the ball.. all these boston bitches were giving me high fives. then some dude runs down and takes my picture for the angels website… then i threw it back”

hasselbeck takes in a ballgame

“so yeah.. boston fans gave me high fives… then I threw it back, then angel fans gave me high fives”

there’s video of it here

strange… if you look closely, you see a huuuge glare where mark was sitting — check it out (damn mark… your whiteness is ridiculous)

mark: i want everything that guy sells

yep… and mark even searched for his wikipedia page (i wouldn’t be surprised if he wrote it as an homage… hah)

i’d have to agree — the guy really knows his sh*t… you’ve ALL seen the commercial:


but have you seen this version?


yes… he’s speaking spanish… at first, i thought it was a terrible dub, but he’s actually speaking spanish… that is just awesome

his next product isn’t as good tho — this slap chop looks like it’d break in 10 slaps or something


btw… i just added this plugin called ‘smart youtube‘ — if you wanna comment a youtbe video, just grab the URL code and append a “v” to the http:// part, like so: httpv://…
