If you need me from now until Sunday afternoon, I will be in Stephenville at the LJT Texas Music Festival trying my very best reenact every part of this performance. Keep it sleazy, Dallas.

So, here’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. As I posted before, I’m going to be working the LJT Texas Music Festival this year for the 5th or 6th time. This is a Texas country music festival. Or red dirt country fest. Whichever term you prefer. I make this distinction, because it’s about as far away from that pretty boy Nashvegas bullshit playing on CMT that you can get. Real, blue collar music. And probably some of the most progressive and liberal songs that exist across the genres. Here are some of my favorite performers that I playing this year and my favorite songs that they do. Give them a click or two.

This week, from Tuesday night through Sunday, I will be working the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival for my Dad in exchange for backstage passes and unlimited free beer. This is my 5th or 6th year working the gigantic Texas country festival in Stephenville with 40k-50k of my closest friends, but the first where I’m working the entire length of the 5 day festival.
Yesterday, instead of kicking back and watching the Mavs and discussing how Jesus rose on the third day while wearing pastels, I was doing backbreaking labor in the pouring rain setting up 20+ RVs on uneven ground, hooking up water/electricity, and other music festival things that you don’t care about.
The reason why I’m posting about this, is because in order to go there yesterday, I had to go through vendor check in where my credentials were given out, including my wrist band that I have to wear for the entire festival.
The one problem is that I have to work my fancy office job Monday and Tuesday with a flashy as hell wristband that makes it look like I spent the weekend in the world’s only all drag hospital.
So, I guess it’s long sleeves for tomorrow as well.

I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a great thing, but the hotel that Shannon and I are staying at for illustratedexample and hangover's wedding was featured on, and discussed for a few minutes, on the Today Show's segment on the “Best Hotels for Families.” I really hope that it gains a lot of traction with families, because I'm going to stumble into this place brown out drunk with a gigantic orange beard in a couple weeks.

I said “how much?” and he said “fo free” and I said “sure.”
No, for real, I was just given all of this beer for free from a craft friend. Highlights include Founders All Day IPA, Brooklyn Local 2, a legit Belgian Dubbel, Real Ale Sisyphus, North Coast Rasputin, and many, many more.
I may stroke out by the time I finish posting this.
Finally did an inventory on all of the beer that was gifted to me. Here’s the list of the shit that I got FO FREE:
Seriously. FO FREE.

This is in front of the clinic off of Greenville Avenue in Dallas. I had to find another way back to my office after lunch because there are around 150-200 people outside of the clinic protesting it. The church across the street’s parking lot is completely full and even has a bus in it, so I’m led to believe that people are literally being bused in to protest the clinic during their business hours.
Normally, it’s just 2 old people that I give the finger to every morning. They even started writing my full name on signs, since I’ve been giving them the finger almost every day for over half a decade.
Today, however, there are cops there shutting down lanes of the road. Traffic is snaked for at least half a mile one direction. Both sides of the road are packed with people, including a lot of adolescents and teens like the one who’s public twitter I found this on.
Imagine if this happened when you showed up for your appointment. Fuck, imagine if it was a wellness checkup at your primary care doctor.
People are strange.

Can someone please make some Law and Order SVU, Ingrid Michaelson, and Taylor Swift fan fiction and then tattoo it on my chest? Thanks.

About 6 years ago, I went to a concert for my roommate’s band at the old Hard Rock in Dallas. There, I grabbed a table with a friend I knew casually from a local sports bar and his then girlfriend, Lauren. Nearly 6 years later, that friend was one of the groomsmen in my wedding and Lauren was among the center ring of our group of friends still living in the city. We went to each parties together, baseball games together, and of course, graded trivia together at that same local sports bar that brought us all together. Seldom a week went by in the last 6 years when I didn’t spend time with Lauren.
This past weekend, we lost Lauren to cancer at 28 years old. It still doesn’t seem real that our friend from Nebraska who designed cheerleading outfits for colleges is gone. I try to find a way to tell everyone how angry, sad, and confused I am about this, but the only thing I can say over and over again is that this just fucking sucks.
“[Cancer] is a petty, ugly illness and we’ll not dignify it by speaking of it unless absolutely necessary." - Dr. Cox, Scrubs S1E23
I’ll miss you forever, Lauren.
It still shocks me just how young Lauren was when we lost her. I am now 28, the same age that Lauren was when she finally died after getting cancer for the 3rd or 4th time.
Today is Lauren’s 30th birthday. I can’t believe that she didn’t see her 30th birthday.
Happy 30th, girl. I hope shit is cool wherever you are.
Guys, I think House is having a stroke.
