The inevitable progression: 1. I am going to make a snowman! 2. This is not working, I am going to make a snow something else. 3. This is not working, I am going to make a snow penis. 4. This is not working, I am just going to pick up this snow penis and hurl it at someone to amuse myself.

Sunday I ate delicious food, had good conversation, went to a casino, played slots while the people around me got progressively more drunk and gambled, and slept in a 4 star hotel . Monday I ate delicious food, had good conversation, painted a wall dried blood red, watched Venture Brothers and played with bunnies while the folks around me did hits of nitrous oxide, and then slept in a pile of clothing in the basement. Both of these evenings were entirely awesome.

I met a superhero recently! To the untrained eye, she appears to be a disheveled and possibly homeless woman. But in truth, she is "The Proprietor!". You see, she walks into a store, grabs something off the shelf, and walks out without paying. When confronted, she shouts "I'm the proprietor! I own this place!" She can do this anywhere, because her superpower is owning any establishment she walks into. Just ask her.

Public Image Ltd. was awesome, and Lydon still has charisma to spare. "Warriors" became a left-wing rallying cry, "Death Disco" was all howling catharsis; shards of noise and weird structures with bass pummeling through everything - That's what dance music should sound like!

-----------------

People keep mentioning ICP on my friends list, which I assume is inspired by their new "miracles" video, since there is literally no other reason anyone has thought about ICP since 1996. So I've decided to share the awesome SNL parody, in case you missed it last week: http://soupsoup.tumblr.com/post/530879770/snl-thrilla-killa-clowns-magical-mystery

Dear kids these days: I am disappointed in your musical choices.

I just want everyone who celebrated St. Patricks day to think about my poor snakes, whom every year watch the St. Patricks day coverage, and weep tiny little snake tears over the injustices done to them. Have you ever had to comfort a mournful florida kingsnake? Stared into the accusing eyes of a ball python? I thought not!

COMMENTARY: of course, there were never any snakes in Ireland, as folks pointed out (and I totally already knew!). Oddly, no one mentioned that snakes do not cry tiny tears.

--------------

Depeche Mode's "Violator" came out twenty years ago, today. Just another friendly dispatch from the universal hourglass!

------------

Conversations you don't want to hear, in brief: "This arm didn't work, I'll try another... oh, that didn't work either! Doctor, I can't find a vein." "I'm sure you can if you try." "Okay... oops, that wasn't a vein - could you do it?" "Here is a vein nurse, now try here." "could you do it?" "Just try it again." "okay...... here goes..."

three needle punctures and one false start! Pretty good deal, all for the price of just one needle puncture!

-------------

According to "BeenVerified.com" I am a known alias of Lucille Young - a 98 year old woman who happens to be my grandmother. This makes me the best alias ever - NO ONE suspected

COMMENTARY: hi-larious!!

-----------------

Yesterday I took an hour to rework the stats and gifts for were-hyena in an out of print role playing game which I have not even thought about playing in probably a decade. I have no idea why I did this thing. I suspect OCD was pretty heavily involved, though.

COMMENTARY: nerrrrrrrrrrrrd!

Go to urbandictionary.com & look up your first name. Post your definitions in the comments below: "Devin" (all in all, I found these surprisingly accurate)

*to have vigorous passion; an endless sexual appetite:
He was so devin! He went all niiight looong!
*a person of such class and wisdom that it is unpresidented. A man so veril and powerful to all who dare to cross his path that they have no choice but to fall to their knees and worship the ground he walks on.
*An extremly hot boy that tells cheesy jokes, a total cutie, the boy that everyone at school knows i have completly fallen for, amazing smile, very funny, totaly makes the worst the day the best, the name given to the reason I'm happy 24/7 and am always smiling/laughing but also makes me fairly shy...
the name given to perfection. The one that ... See Moreevery guy is jealous of for obvious reason. Thinks he has a great body, and he is so right. Hes so amazing, that your speechless when you see or talk to him.
*He is the man, he is a god amongst men. Every guy wants to be like him, and all the ladies want to be with him. Everyone tries to be like him, but none can compare to his sheer awesomeness. If you look up the word perfect in the dictionary, you see his face and his phone number so all the fine ladies to see.

COMMENTARY: As I commented "it just goes on like this, I shit you not." Truly, my verility is without president (as craig commented at the time)

--------------------

My superbowl comment: What possible use would an aboreal anteater be to the "Green Police"?

--------------------

I love half-asleep me. It's adorable how confidently he feels he is communicating with awake-me when he writes down something like "Orkin, gassed while robbing; magic? 50 dolla! Palm leaf, pulled up polo. Chased off. David Bowie!" before going back to sleep.

-------------------

link title: How Does Homeopathy Work Link page: It Doesn't

COMMENTARY: notable primarily for the following exchange, which sums up my feelings nicely

comment: Why such a campaign against it? This is, like, the fifth such thing I've seen in a few months. Who cares if some people wanna' pop sugar pills? What's the big deal?
Devin: Pez takes advantage of people who want to pop sugar pills. These folks are taking advantage of people who are sick, and want to get better.

----------------

I resent the people of future. They are going to know so many things we can only guess at! Things we can't even guess.

----------------

My experience with LOST thus far has taught me this: LOST is not written by humans. I think the tale of how LOST was created is the real, hidden story here. Is it a dolphins perspective on what life on land is like? Is it the translated code left behind by the dying AI of an automated silkworm nursery? Is the creation of LOST the actual purpose of the human appendix? Millions of appendixes, working together?

I am willing to grant that the show has meaningful symbolism, character evolution, and coherent narrative. It just has nothing to do with any of these things as humans understand them.

COMMENTARY: I must say I do love Lost, but of all the anti-Lost arguments I've heard this is by far the most hilarious. -Stephanie

"Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura" is the most amazing show I have ever seen. It's as if "America's Most Wanted" stopped doing bad reenactments of crimes and started doing bad reenactments of whatever the guy on the bus wearing a diaper as a hat believes to be true. All narrated by Jesse Ventura, who is VERY concer...ned to hear our baby food is being systematically poisoned by the Bilderberg group.

For fans of old video game cheats: On facebook press up,up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Enter key, then right click then press up and down - you'll get magic circles and suchlike. Passed on from Ryan.

------------------------------

I am going to kick the supreme court right in their pants. What the hell are they thinking! That giant corporations just didn't have enough political influence?

----------------------------

There's a certain kind of book I am no good at reading - wild, vivid books so much about the language and the moment that the plot is almost completely immersed by the words. Gravity's Rainbow, Tropic of Cancer, The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test - Wonderful books, but the whole slides through my fingers; I'm left with just moments, more like looking at a series of paintings than reading a novel.



COMMENTARY: The commentary on each of these posts is basically "I agree with this statement!"
Ryan psoted a ton of adorable exotic animals on my page this month, which was awesome. Also awesome is that I knew every one of them.

My icon during "doppleganger week" was an image of god parting the clouds with a beam of light. Which was awesome.

Just so everyone is clear on this - A snuggie is a broken robe. Or an overpriced hospital gown. Take your pick.

-------------------

I just got a $40 book on spotted hyena in the mail, and I regret not a cent! Look here, there's a chart on interspecific competition! Oh Hans Kruuk, you rascal.


COMMENTARY: The snuggie post was, without a doubt, the single most controversial statement I have ever made on facebook. There was much anger to be seen. That book on hyena was awesome.

-----------------

It's my birthday! Or as I like to call it, "The Christmas in December". I have tomorrow off, so feel free to send me all those giant packages and crates by one-day delivery, UPS.

----------------

My roomates cat poops in a box! Inside the house! Who trains a cat to do such a thing? I've never seen any evidence that my cat poops. My cat meows, I let him outside for 2-4 minutes, and he comes back in. This is respectable cat behavior. Now my roomate has this fustilarian, low-born beast befouling my home with her hideous biological functions.

----------------

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-HmDE0Plj0
Is this awesome? Y/N

COMMENTARY: The correct answer is both.

---------------

When you are walking along, and suddenly you begin to vomit onto someone's lawn, and they are watching you vomit on their lawn, you enter into a special kind of relationship. It is a bad relationship, which neither of you feel good about in the morning, but it is there. Years from now, I will probably remember that man better than some people I have kissed.

COMMENTARY: More people "liked" this post than nearly any other post I have done. Also, I still remember that dude.

---------------

I wonder what percentage of the Venture Brothers audience get's references to Stiv Bators, Art of Noise, Klaus Nomi and Lydia Lunch? It can't be that many...

---------------

During a christmas scuffle, I pounced onto my brother, who in return lashed out and clawed my forehead open, causing me to bleed all over - we all had a giggling fit. Then we had pie! The pie was delicious. Everybody liked their presents. Grandmother had one red eye (completely), which contrasted eerily with her green iris.

COMMENTARY: she had a burst blood vessel, and it was RED. Like her eye was a pool of blood, with an island of green floating in it. Blood was apparently a theme that christmas.

--------------

Notable Loot list: movies -Notorious (Hitchcock), 4 film pack by Igmar Bergman, Watership Down. Books - sociobiology (EO Wilson), the Unbearable Lightness of Being(Kundera), Edgeworks 2 & 4 (Harlan Ellision), The Odyssey (Homer), Short History of Nearly Everything (Bryson). Music- Chameleons UK, Script of the bridge. Socks - socks

--------------

Yo, I be seeking roomates again - the upper floor of my house is clearing out, due to certain folks bouncing a check on me. Rooms run about 450, as low as 360 if we get enough people in. Or you and any number of associates can have the whole upstairs for about $1,000 (3 bedrooms, ~1,000 square feet, kitchen, access to ...washer/dryer). Right by Crossroads, Microsoft, BCC. Great views (of me).

COMMENTARY: I have roomates now.

---------------

Worst case of food poisoning EVER. I feel like Ive been beaten with sticks, drained by a vampire and cursed by dark gods. The only thing that seems to interrupt the stream of liquid coming out one orifice is when the other one wants in on that action, and I have to spin around and let it purge. Being this sick is hard work.

COMMENTARY: turns out, this wasn't food poisoning at all, and I got to share with all my friends and coworkers! Sorry about that, folks.

--------------

Within the last 44 hours or so I have input 1/2 package of saltine crackers (dipped in broth), 1 bowl of soup, 1 half sandwich, a lot of water. Output - all that and more. I am running at a net loss! Given sufficient time, death is certain. Though I suppose that's always true.

COMMENTARY: I was sick several days after this too.

--------------

COMMENTARY: I went to Alligator Soul to eat, via facebook inviation from kathleen, and it was delicious. Mostly noted to remember Alligator Soul resteraunt.

------------

The history of life on this planet is fucking amazing.

COMMENTARY: FUCKING AMAZING

RIP my beautiful mustache - it was in grave danger of going from ironic mustache to actual mustache, and had to be destroyed. Plus, I just made a killing selling individual hairs as an aphrodisiac on the Chinese black market.

----------

Bellevue, I am very disappointed in you. Why did you vote in a wall to wall lineup of people who oppose bringing light rail into Bellevue, and thus the entire east side? You voted FOR light rail! Did you just not read anything about the candidates? Do you just not know how to vote unless the race is mentioned in The Stranger?

----------

Happy thanksgiving folks! Enjoy bountiful foods! (and remember not to feed any alien people's from far off lands or other worlds today - or they will take your lands and decimate your people!)

----------

For the record - if you have left a message on my phone machine anytime recently, I did not get it. My phone machine is broken somehow, and banging various objects against it and making menacing sounds has not fixed it thus far.


COMMENTARY: An unbelievably large number of people were mad at me for shaving off that mustache.

Is it wrong to refer to women and men as "Innies" and "outies"? (Facebook asked me what was on my mind! What am I supposed to do, lie?)

---

Awesome things I saw this week: A coyote running about Bellevue. Awesome things I missed seeing this week: The Pogues, Richard Dawkins, sleep before 5am. On the whole, I feel this week is a fail for Devin.

---

Today my roommate found a dog toy - the sort of toy that, if lightly jostled, makes noises. Growls, children's laughter, shouts of "don't do that!". He found it taped to his bedframe, after two days of trying to work out where said sounds were coming from. He also seems to feel that *I* may have had something to do with this. Preposterous, I know.

---

I hope that the only action scenes in 2012 are in the preview, and the rest of the movie is spent with the main characters trapped together in a small bunker. Ultimately, the final act will reveal the film as a homage to Jean-Paul Sartre's existential stage play "No Exit".

---

Right now I am eating a slice of meat cake. That's right, it's cake made of meat. Frosted with mashed potato. My world is a world of wonders beyond your ken.

Fun fact: a single hair from this mustache will cure impotence.

They are canceling Reading Rainbow! I do not approve.

Fiction: Fiction is a direct feed into another *lifetime* of experience. Beyond the characters and plot, there's a voice telling us something of what they have learned about being human, hard won through decades of experiences I can never have. That's knowledge! Folks who talk about fiction being just escapism or wasted time are off their rocker.

---

I spent several hours the other night reading about spiders, which, yes, is a fun way to spend one's evening. I finished, got up, and took one step - right onto a huge spider I had failed to notice. :(

---

You know, every spider that is killed mystically infuses it's hundreds of eggbound young with it's own vengeful spirit, and commands them as a single malicious hive mind. It's science!

---

When I am spinning 40 feet in the air on machinery built by carnies, the last thing I want to hear playing is "I Will Survive". It's just asking for some kind of ironic "Final Destination" style doom to descend.

---

Other fair news: there was a knife fight between two Mexican gangs there, I ate a lot of fried food, rode some fun rides, spent a million years in traffic. It was pretty awesome.

---

I have decided to change my name to "White Chocolate Snow" and cut a rap album. I shall wear a sideways ball cap at all times. Should I think twice about this decision? No.


COMMENTARY: The spider post brought on the largest response yet recorded on my facebook - dozens of spider haters and defenders fighting a running war over the next week regarding the most suitable fate for spiders.

I also watched a hilariously bad Weird Al video at the fair, which taught me absoloutely nothing about the topic (the brain) it purported to be about, but did show Tim & Eric stretching a brain between them across a road. I ate deep friend cookie dough, pickle, and alligator. I saw the parents of the mexican gangs, shuffling about and look embarassed as their children were processed by the police inside the police-fair-station. Heh.

That literature thing is totally true.

One of those lightup construction roadsigns I passed by earlier in the evening had this stern warning to commuters: "FOR GAY SEX CALL (phone number forgotten)"

---

So, any of you mugs interested in lodgings in Bellevue with the wonderous and scintillating me? The house I'm sitting in is half emptying out and space is freed up for rent.

---

My mother, while IMing me, accidentally switched on the "underline" feature. Upon realizing this, she sent me the following message: "UH OH _ I have unerline again!", all underlined of course. Followed by a stream of underlined demands for help defeating this terrible menace. I pretty much died laughing.

---

This line alone justifies the existence of Dungeons & Dragons: "The cows remain docile until they are approached by anyone other than Mr. Tronkley, in which case they begin spraying acid from their teats and uttering their maddening moo."

---

I never got around to getting the cable upgrade that'd let me watch most channels on my tv, so I'm stuck with just the weird local college stations. In the last few days I've seen a a documentary on the physics of the katana, an international indie rock video show, a political debate on the impact of PAC's, a BCC created spoof of 50's sci-fi serials, and a history of our lumber industry. I love these channels!

---

Also, I highly recommend the non-squeamish watch "Inside Nature's Giants", which is the 4 part animal dissection an anatomy series I mentioned watching earlier on here. You can find it on Youtube, and it is brilliant stuff for the science inclined. They do an elephant, whale, crocodile and giraffe. I thought the Giraffe was the best.

---

About a month before he died, my grandmother greased my grandfathers back. He went downhill very quickly after that.

---

Today I missed my bus because I was too busy watching an ant haul a very large crumb down the sidewalk. I had followed it roughly 25 feet from my stop when the bus roared by. Totally worth it.


COMMENTARY ON AUGUST 2009:

Feeling good here! This was, without a doubt, the finest period of television watching I have ever experienced in my life. It would also be, thus far, the last period of time i actually watched television apart from a few tivo'd shows with Warren. Normal television just can't compete with the brilliant madness of those stations!

I needed the escape during that time, because all my roomates moving out was about to make my head explode.

And those documentaries are still awesome, must see tv for the biology inclined.

When you are at a Mexican restaurant, I think it is fun to throw the salsa on the person sitting across from you, and say "You've been a-salsa'd!"

---

The daystar was taking unacceptable liberties with me today! Caressing my back, touching my bare skin... even when I went inside my own home I could *feel* it's gaze burning into me. If this keeps up, I'm gonna pop the sun right in the kisser. Hmmph!

You know how they say infinite monkeys with infinite typewriters could write shakespeare? Well, 4 monkeys with a bottle of cheap wine could write the website of my dental plan, and probably do a better job of it.

A woman today came into my work, fixed me with a challenging stare, and said "Do you know Molly is a slavic name?" After saying no, she stared a few seconds longer and said "Do you know why I ask?" And no, I did not - an explanation was EXACTLY what I needed at that moment. She leaned into me and whispered, with a conspirational savagery, "Russian roomates are very HIP these days."

---

Generally, my "if you buy it, I will drink it" approach ultimately results in a limited amount of alcohol consumed on any given outing. However, I have rarely been presented with so driven a source as my latest accompaniment, for whom money was apparently no object in their quest to...

There are krispy kremes here! In my room! Thank you, mysterious benefactor!


COMMENTARY ON JULY 2009-

Did you know that facebook does not save anything under the cutoff for long posts? I recreated what I could recall of the end of the "Molly" conversation, but I have left the story of my drunken rampage unfinished - it is up to you to decide how I got from a bar, being plied with drinks, to having free, unknown krispy kremes on the same evening.

Clearly, July is better than the prior months. Look at the good spirit I was in! The sly wit, the clever turns! My irritable amusement with the worlds rubbish! I found free donuts in my room! Everyone who saw my evening of drunkeness was greatly amused, and I, by drinking copious amounts of water, avoided a hangover. I remember Heather grabbing some random girl off the floor, shoving her at me, and essentially demanding we begin dating on the spot. We did not do this thing. I knocked a full glass of something over, and examined it quizzically. I was flashed. A girl vomited in my toilet, and then began shouting for help.

These are the things I remember in July.

Did you folks know Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is friggin' 10 YEARS OLD this weekend?

---

On the plus side, I did not throw up in a courtroom today. on the minus side, I did throw up on a cat. Whatever happened to the one flu a year rule? I think I shall have to call in sick for jury duty. Do they shoot out your kneecaps for that? Anyone?

---

The worst thing about being sick is how sleep ceases to be a natural outgrowth of yourself. It's like I am in a failing relationship with sleep. "You seem a little distant, sleep. Would it help if I lay like this?" Sleep remains unimpressed by my attempts to rekindle our old flame.

COMMENTARY ON MAY -

May was clearly a useless month in my life, punctuated only by illness and reminders of my own mortality and increasing irrelevance to the youth demographic I have associated myself with the majority of my life.

On the plus side, I can still rock being awesome!

1:30 am - Things I have written in facebook (because I am lazy)
Occasionally I go through netflix and move all the "long wait" movies to the top of my que, lest the last few copies get lost before I can view them. Then I get these movies, and have it ground into my poor head that yes, I did add "Redneck Zombies", "Nude For Satan" and "I Was a Teenage Zombie" to my que, and I apparently thought this was an entirely reasonable act at the time.

***

The title "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" makes the opposite of sense.

***

I accompanied my brother to the hospital today, and while laying on the floor he, as brother are wont to do, began to piston his cane between my legs and towards my "swimsuit area" in a furious manner. A passing nurse walked by, paused to look us over, and gave an appreciative "mmmm-hmmm!" before continuing on her way.

**

Today I ate at Buca di Beppo for lunch, fixed a lawn mower, bought new boots, identified a wallaby skull, helped move a cripple, and made myself a fine dish of pop tarts, with hardened sugar on top and a steamy fruitesque filling inside. Toast lightly for 60 seconds and serve warm.

***

Devin thinks they should release a special edition of "Bad Girls Club" narrated by Frans de Waal.

(Edit: No one got this! He is a famed primatologist, and exactly the sort of person who could best explain the behavior of these people. Have you seen this show? They just hoot and throw things and leap at one another shouting and showing their teeth, while the outnumbered girls try to avoid making eye contact and make submissive gestures.)

***

Devin Jarboe is engaged in an activity of no importance, and wishes it to be noted down for posterity!

(Edit: This was my very first (and very apt) Facebook entry.)


Thus is the chronicle of my shame. Compared to livejournal, facebook is such rubbish not even Frank the goat would eat it.

current mood: shamed

1:33 pm - What Fresh Snow Is This?
So we're in the midst of the snowpocalypse up here, which normally I would enjoy immensely - except that every day this week most my co-workers were unable to get to work, leaving me to trudge each day at 6am through alternating scenery of blizzards and mornings so cold and clear and silent you would think you were stomping across some distant planet nearly free of atmosphere, improbably tethered to the ground by the sheer bulk of ice weighing down your boots.

Not that I was supposed to work at 6am, or even work, on all these days. Now, today is my day off, and I must trudge down there again to drop off keys.

Don't get me wrong though, it looks fantastic out there, and in the moments between shards of ice driving themselves into my cornea, I am glad to be alive and experiencing such things. But still, I can see why our ancient, nomadic ancestors may have been slightly put out by the coming of winter. My cat, on the other hand, shares none of my mixed feelings. I open the door for my cat to go outside, and he gives me the sort of look I assume Ayn Rand saved for people handing her Marxist pamphlets.

Other update news: My foot is not fine, but it is good enough to walk through the snow on. I no longer use a cane. Happy days!

Well, I'm off to push my way through the blizzard again.

So recently some folks called up my work and talked to my boss, who passed on to me this: "Hey, would you be willing to be arrested for charity?" And I thought about it for a moment, and then he said "They'll pay for dinner!"

And I was pretty much sold on that. Being arrested, helping charity, and getting free food? Triple threat. I get arrested, thrown into a Black Angus to eat; and my "bail money" to get me out goes towards charity.

So now it turns out among the things I was not immediately told include that I am to raise this bail/charity thing by hitting up people I know for money.

So, if anyone feels like giving up a fiver or such for kids with MS, feel free. If you do not feel like doing such a thing do not, and I have no problem with either course of action.

So - if you DO feel the need, here is the website https://www.joinmda.org/08crossroadslockup/daftcorvid

For those who are interested, a few notes.

1. There is a big red button you click to donate. You will notice after clicking that it gives options for donating $85, $100, etc. and a write in amount. This is dangerous nonsense! Go to the write in bit, and write in a number that makes sense. I do not expect anyone I know and associate with to be in a place where $85 makes sense.

2. Do not feel bad for putting a reasonable amount. (My boss, who put me on this gig, gave ten dollars)

3. From what I understand, tomorrow is the main day for giving funds. It may or may not go on past tomorrow, and feel free to try, but I don't know if it does.

4. Know this base pandering makes me feel more or less like a hooker. But a hooker with a heart of gold! For charity!

I will do a real post later.

I just walked a couple blocks to the local QFC to pick up a sandwich and anana for eating purposes, and back again. And it was probably the hardest hike I have been on in my LIFE. I've used crutches for brief periods before, but actually walking on the things for any distance (in the rain no less, I slipped twice) is like swinging from the monkey bars while someone sandpapers your armpits and bangs on your ankle with a frying pan.

So that gives me a pretty good idea of the next week or so, I guess.

Random thought: How are the children of today supposed to find quality cinema anymore? USA Up All Night, Monstervision, 100% weird, Movie Macabre, even MST3K... these were important cinematic experiences! I don't think anything has filled this important void in our pop-culture. I mean, good movies have their place, but so do really, really bad movies.

Also, the show Dexter is awesome. Also, pain pills make me groggy.
