this is a GOLD, LIQUID.

since sxsw i have been sick as hell.
i thought i was dying the first couple of days, then i thought i was getting better, then i thought i was dying again.
i tried healing myself with natural remedies, but this was one fight my body couldn't handle alone.
today, after coughing up something i am not going to describe, i decided it was time to visit the doctor.

so of course, i was prescribed some strong antibiotics. as the doc began to exit the room, i mentioned that i hadn't slept in 4 days because i can't breathe/ stop coughing at night.
"do you know of a cough syrup that would help with that?" i asked.
the doctor closed the door and looked at me super seriously.
"i do. it is a...narcotic. is that ok?"
i got scared and said.... "y-y-yeah i guess"

when i picked up my prescription, the pharmacist took one look at the bottle of cough syrup and said "oh, this will make you feel a LOT better. yeah, you're gonna feel reaaalll good" i laughed a little, but mostly felt weird and got out of there as fast as i could.

on the way home i started thinking that maybe i had some......."sizzurp"

this suspicion was confirmed when i got home and noticed "this is a GOLD, LIQUID." on the bottle.
"ohhhh. ok. that's what all the fuss was about", i thought. "this is a GOLD, LIQUID."
this is a gold, liquid
i guess that explains why it was 60 bucks, too.

the origin of "i like waterslide"

after writing that little true hollywood story about sparkley sweater, it made me start thinking about the origin of other songs.
and that brought me to "i like waterslide."
i am an artist for whole foods and one summer afternoon i went to the meat department to redo their big "specials" chalkboards.
there i found arthur, a big lovable teddy bear of a dude who liked to talk a lot, though i could rarely understand what he was saying...
on this day he was going on and on about how he took his kids to the waterpark the previous day.
he said that he packed a big cooler full of beer and snacks because drinks and food were too expensive at the waterpark.
but do you know that they charged him ONE DOLLAR to bring that cooler in?
they CHARGED him to bring his own stuff in, which in his mind (and mine) was completely ridiculous. (splishing splashing in the water, come back here man give me my dollar.)
anyway he just kept going on about what a fun time they had and he told me how they got there right when it opened and they didn't leave until it closed, saying repetitively "we opened da park and we closed da park!"
soon after, arthur decided to be a stay at home dad.
check these girls out...

pretty much everywhere

it's gonna be hot
