VIDEO: Jon Taught Me To Feel

Today is Jon’s birthday.

In the internet world, we constantly edit what we want everyone to see of our lives. It is a blessing and a curse. I edit even this very sentence I’m typing because I know you – whoever you are – will read it and make a judgment of it.

I just want to be fair to all of you fine folks that follow me and share that life is just as tough as it is beautiful. Jon taught me so much about all these things. I thanked him a good deal when he was alive and I’ll be thanking him for the rest of the time I’m alive for what he gave me.

If you want to honor Jon today :

– Listen to a record and read all the credits and really think about the album art.
– Eat something good and if possible, a good old-fashioned hamburger.
– Find your nearest skuzzy dive bar and patronize the hell out of it. Play pool if available. Play jukebox, no questions asked.
– Inspire another person to believe in themselves.

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting a blog about Jon & grief & living. Come back and see me.

Volunteers : Drinkable Cannabis?

Capture

 

Oh – the difference a step into the light and the whip of your hair can make.

In other news, I received an interesting pitch today from a company that makes drinkable cannabis.

So! Would any of you fine folks be interested in (or horrified by) joining a small panel to try out some drinkable cannabis?

You’ll have to be photographed, filmed, and fed (I would assume I’d have to at least provide you with snacks and a fairly worn-in couch) all in the name of very curious reporting for Young Mary’s Record.

If you’re the bad kind of weirdo or if you have ever used the word “bro-sef”, just ignore this post.

PS. I won’t be drinking it. I only drink 2 liters of Mello Yello and sweet tea out of mason jars.

 

LOOK: Mall Walker

Hi from the …mall?

I just narrowly avoided an impulse purchase of white skinny jean overalls.

What I didn’t narrowly avoid is my #ruling vintage Mickey Gilley’s shirt from Vintage Banana Clothing!

What are your favorite non-mall vintage or boutique stores? Looking for fresh blood!

Rest in Peace, Piper

mary and piperIn a world where no person *has* to be nice to anyone else – especially a very famous, legendary person – Rowdy Roddy Piper was a true gem to Jon and me at Wrestlemania last year.

It’s at times like these when I wonder why God or Fate or whatever is responsible seems to be taking every single good one we have.

I will miss Piper’s tweeting of “Sunday Morning Coming Down” every Sunday and so so so much more than that

May you wear your cleanest dirty shirt on to the next plane of existence, Rowdy.

spa hotel heartburn

You may think this is what the good life looks like — it is — but it is also what horrific English breakfast sausage-induced heartburn looks like.    Good morning from the Spa Hotel in Kent, UK.

sj at crown jewelsWe visited the Crown Jewels in London.  Our maturity level was at an all-time high.

ramblin manHi from one-armed me at the Ramblin’ Man Fair.  Two thumbs up for the festivities and line-up including Shooter Jennings, Bob Wayne, & Jason and the Scorchers.

packing to go homeAnother morning. Another adventure.  Hello from Manchester and my vintage Samsonite bag that has done me oh-so-good over the years.

We didn’t expect this delicious miso soup to be in Leeds, England!

Really.  Might be the best I’ve ever, ever had.  Get your ‘nom on if you’re in the area — highly recommended.  Thanks, Fuji Hiro!

VIDEO: COKE AIN’T CUTTIN IT

 

the coke over here just ain’t cutting it.

Just in case you were wondering, they go real cheap (and by cheap I mean non-existant) on the high-fructose corn syrup over here.  They don’t – however – go cheap on the fresh fruits and veggies.  Give and take.
