A Little Photo Tribute To My Best Buddy

Josh Bouzard (6/26/79-12/29/03)

In the early hours of December 29th, 2003, my best friend Josh Bouzard passed away. He fell asleep with a cigarette in hand, which subsequently started our apartment on fire and he never made it out. Unfortunately you never really realize how much someone means to you until they are gone. I realize that now, and all the positive memories of days past keep a smile on my face. Not only was Josh a fantastic guitar player and artist, he was the truest of friends, more of a brother than a friend actually. I'll never meet anyone like him again in my lifetime. So here's to you pal!

...and the last photo ever taken of Josh.

...and a video tribute produced by Jourdain LaFrombois and David White, "Full Purchase"

+/- for December 27th

+ Green Bay clinches a playoff berth.
+ The berth of these 2 munchkins.

+ Themselves "Live Trap" (one of the few hip hop groups I love)

+ Converge "Last Light" (Corny video, but I like that it has the lyrics because that's the reason this is one of my favorite songs ever. Quite inspiring.)

+ Pills that give worms to ex-girlfriends.

+ Watching "The Bird People In China" again soon.

- No showering capability once again, due to this flooded basement. The good news is that my landlord agrees that this is getting very old, it's time to permanently fix the problem. I usually shower 2 or 3 times per day, so having my last shower be on Christmas is super duper rough for me.

- Leaving the "I Support President Obama" group. I truly give him 2 thumbs down. It's sad.

...and so it begins.

I was recently described as a wild card. It was in reference to a Halloween costume idea my buddy came up with. If you've seen "It's Always Sunny In Phildelphia" you probably will understand this reference. My buddies and I are going as "The Birds Of War" from the wrestling episode. Jay is the muscle(Mac), Brian is the brains(Dennis), and I'm evidently the wild card(Charlie). The costume should be pretty fun to put together: huge eagle wings with an eagle hat, cut off camouflage cargo pants, and painted-on 6 pack abs. I initially took offense to being the wild card, I see myself as the brains. My intelligence is underrated, but due to my tremendous brain power, I realize the wild card can be the brains covertly. So, I'm going with it.

Not much to say tonight, so I'll just leave you with a video.
