So roughly 5 bucks a gallon. Ouch.

Even during the worst fuel spike we've seen (just after Katrina), the highest it ever got here was around $4.19. It's been pretty consistent the last year or so, anywhere between $3.30 and $3.50 a gallon.

And I remember when I started driving, a mere 8 years ago, and it was flirting with the $2 per gallon mark. What I wouldn't give to get that back for good.

  1. Minivans are awesome. I love mine. It hauls damn near anything (except a boat, which is why I also have a Suburban), and I can treat it like shit and not care because it's not my "good" car.
  2. There are 3.78 liters in a U.S. gallon (and no, I didn't Google that - I know it because it's part of my job to know stupid facts like those).
  3. Maddox is the fucking man.
  4. Everything in Canada is expensive as shit. Everyone knows that.
Carry on.

8. Suffocation – Pinnacle of Bedlam


Suffocation are a band who I love, but it's more for their first run stuff and their live shows. Their stuff since their reunion isn’t that great, save the self-titled album. It all comes down to the vocals. I love Frank's gruff, muffled delivery on Effigy of the Forgotten and even though he changed it on Pierced from Within it was such a great album it didn't matter. I know he's still capable of the gruffer delivery since he still does it live . But the vocals on their albums always let me down. Musically the album is top notch but the vocals turn me off instantly because I know he's capable of better. I always buy their albums and they always disappoint me. I bought Breeding the Spawn shortly after this and thought it was way better. Most people will tell you that album was a huge career misstep, so what does that tell you about this? I think I just buy the albums to support the band and insure that they have a bit of income and the willingness to tour. I saw them live twice this year.

Review of the first time.

Review of the second time.

7. My fridge broke


I don't really remember this one too much since it happened earlier in the year and so much has pissed me off since then that it’s all just a huge blur of shit. But I know me and I know I was probably furious that day. Just because why the fuck does shit just stop working? It's not like I drove a fork truck into my fridge or lifted it over my head in a drunken stupor. I just opened it one day and "oh, the milk is warm...and everything’s melted". Nine hundred dollars later I have a fridge that my wife picked out then didn't like once it showed up...shoot me.

Some albums that were good but didn’t fry my nuts as much as they should have:
Aluk Todolo - Occult Rock
Carcass – Surgical Steel
Deicide – In the Minds of Evil
The Dillinger Escape Plan – One of Us is the Killer
KEN Mode - Entrench

6. I live in Keswick


I know there's another guy who posts here who lives in Keswick but I'm sorry, the people here are fucking stupid. They just walk around with this look on their faces like they don't have a fucking clue how they got there, what they're doing or what the hell they're doing next. I think they're all drywallers. And they all stink like cigarette smoke. I was raised in Oshawa and that city deserves to be taken off the map, incinerated and forgotten. But there's something else about this city that makes me look at my feet and shake my head. And I moved here, on my own will.

Merry Christmas

Here's a link to a scene from one of my favorite Christmas movies. It really gets me in the spirit.
