went to see ozzy this weekend. he played on the street.

hung out with these people

he rocked harder than all of the previous bands on that stage combined

when he raised his hands, the crowd raised their hands. it was an evil, wonderful ballet

even satan himself was there. er, santa. someone.

there were fights. there was slamdancing. there were panicked people. there was love.

there was also a firehose filled with foam. and one ozzy.

the results were hilarious

only bad thing about the fest was if you werent drinking in a club,
you had to drink in one of the beer gardens.
although it would be nice to drink on the street,
this randomly selected woman didnt seem to mind

neither did this fascinating woman
who had stars autograph her arms,
which she then turned into tattoos

speaking of tattoos. if you’re a nice lady with a tattoo like this, i will talk to you.

speaking of the law talking to the miller lite girls, hi.

speaking of learning one thing every day.
who knew that elmer valentine cofounded so many killer places?
most days im lucky to find my car keys.

wanna know something crazy? i really liked the kottonmouth kings

yes theyre just a group of white rappers trying to be hard while yapping about weed

but they’re reeeeeeallly into weed. they got this one guy who walks around with a backpack of it

and they got this guy who’s literally smoking the entire set

he was also in charge of the signs

cute, but after a while youd wonder, why’d they let the guy smoking the weed be in sign guy?

i mean this guy was really inhaling

and exhaling

one minute youd see backpack o dope guy bustin on the megaphone

next minute youd see crazy sign guy smoking another jay

after a while everyone looked high so i bailed.

and ran into my favorite american idol

who told me to say hi to you guys

so, like, hi!

today we threw a little going away party for my favorite boss

because of the climate of the economy, often these parties were sad for other reasons, but this one was sad because Meredith was so smart and nice and perfect for her job.

they laid out a nice spread and there was a small bar for wine and beer and Meredith choked up a little as she reminisced about her time here. And just as is her style she said things like “it was great taking credit for things that I had nothing to do with”, but the truth of the matter is, even if she didnt assign us to do it, or order us to pull it off, we were able to do it because she created an environment where everyone Wanted to kick so much butt.

people provided little gag gifts, and one of our former bloggers (see even EX employees love her!) arranged for an autographed pair of suspenders and an autographed 8×10 glossy would make their way to the party.

of course, CNN security was called when they found out that they were the pair that Larry was wearing at the time, but hey, what can we do, we love her and we’re sad that shes going to our biggest online competitor. its almost like Babe Ruth going to the Yankees. except worse.
