    Some say the end is near.
    Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
    I certainly hope we will.
    I sure could use a vacation from this
    Bull**** three ring circus sideshow of
    Freaks
    Here in this hopeless ****ing hole we call LA
    The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
    Any ****ing time. Any ****ing day.
    Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

    Watch you flush it all away.

    Time to bring it down again.
    Don't just call me pessimist.

    Suck it down.
    Flush it down.

    I'll let you know after the tsunami recedes and we dry out and take stock of everything. At least the power is back on after nearly a week. Apparently the quake took out the main grid network and the whole shootin match failed when the hydro power dams all fell down. Once the bridges, highways and roads are rebuilt next spring, I'm sure that FEMA rescue will arrive with their little trailers for us all to live in. Then the insurance companies will write checks for all the damages so that the State can recover from this economic disaster without having to raise our taxes to pay for fresh cuppacino every day.

    Meanwhile I gotta get back to fishing for a grey whale so I haz enough food to last the rest of the winter. Blubber anyone?

    Apparently, the earthquake was a 6.5 and the epicenter was near in the ocean off Humbolt County, 33 mi from Eureka.

    Didn't feel it in Rancho Cordova, CA

    The Dead and Floyd represent real substance.. Some listen to music for content and lyrics...
    .... - I know that involves a lot of work..
    At least those lyrics are audible - unlike much of modern day music..

    I lived in dormitories for most of the 1980s.
    I heard enough Dead for this lifetime.
    I'm sure Phish and Widespread are good too. Just not my taste.

    My uncle lives out there and he says the exact same thing. At least with hurricanes you can see them coming. It's not like a hurricane is going to sneak up on anyone. If you failed to prepare then you have no one to blame but yourself. Tornadoes on the other hand...not so much. Especially when they hit in the middle of the night.(and I swear 90% of them seem to) If I have one true fear from mother nature it's a tornadoe. I've seen a live one once and dodged too many to count. Some by less than a mile. I guess I'm livin' right. Hope everyone out there is OK.
