The Green Book

The Green Book
Twiztid (2003)
This album was released on my birthday and it's quickly become my favorite Twiztid album.  I prefer the version of The World Is Hell from the sampler, but this version with Esham is also pretty awesome.  My favorite song is Afraid Of Me.  Jamie Madrox's lines are especially meaningful to me.

Camping At The Gathering

Gathering Of The Juggalos
Nelson Ledges Quarry Park - Garrettsville, OH
Ameridan just sent me his photos from the 2003 Gathering Of The Juggalos.  This one was taken at his campsite, which became the unofficial gathering point for everyone on the message board.  I'm the big nerd in the sunglasses on the left.

Most of these are from Dan, but a few of them were uploaded to the board.  When I get the film developed, I'll share my pics.

2003 Gathering Of The Juggalos

Gathering Of The Juggalos
Nelson Ledges Quarry Park - Garrettsville, OH
We made it home from the fourth annual Gathering Of The Juggalos.  It's been a hell of a week of food, friends, pro wrestling and music, and I'm absolutely exhausted.  I'll write more and share some pics and video soon, but for right now, here is the ticket medallion.  You have to love the fact that they spelled the name of the city wrong (it's Garrettsville, with two t's).

I'm hoping to get a list of wrestling matches and a setlist for all of the concerts, but until then, here is a list of the artists who performed.  V-Sinizter (the winner of the 2002 Gathering Of The Juggalos MC contest) performed on Thursday night.  Jumpsteady, Dope, Esham The Unholy and Dark Lotus performed on Friday night.  Zug Izland, Vanilla Ice, Blaze Ya Dead Homie and Twiztid performed on Saturday night.  Finally, Kottonmouth Kings, Killah Priest, Bushwick Bill, Anybody Killa and the Insane Clown Posse performed on Sunday night.

Anger Is More Useful Than Despair

Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines
Destinta Theatres - Clarion, PA
We stopped at the Clarion Mall on the way to The Gathering Of The Juggalos to break up the drive a bit and get something to eat.  There was a movie theater in the mall, so we all went to see Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines.  It's nowhere near as good as The Terminator or Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but those are pretty high bars to clear, especially without the involvement of James Cameron.  It's a good movie in its own right, but I'd hesitate to call it a "must see" for fans of the first two films.

Macho Row

The 1993 Phillies National League All-Stars
Terry Mulholland, Darren Daulton, John Kruk and Dave Hollins
It's hard to believe that this was only ten years ago.  Feels like a lifetime.

The Colors Of The City

Times Square
New York City, NY
I bought this off of a guy on the streets in Times Square, mostly because it has a Matrix Reloaded billboard.
