a brief update

We took a trip to Brussels and Bruge (in Belgium) Wednesday and Thursday. It was a good time, although it was hot and crowded wherever we went. It was still a good thing to do, though. We went to the Belgian coast as well, it was good to see the ocean and walk out on the pier.

Other than this little trip I haven’t really done anything. Tomorrow night there is this family reunion with the Wiltziuses, I haven’t met almost any of these people before (and if I have, I don’t remember since I was too young) but it still might be interesting. Or not, I don’t know. There won’t be anyone my age there, so far as I know. But its only one night, how bad can it be?

This Saturday there’s a huge Jazz festival here. That should be a good time. It goes (apparently) from 5 in the afternoon until 5 in the morning, with the bands changing every hour at a bunch of different places around town. So you see what you want to see, and do what you want to do. Sounds great, hopefully it’ll be fun.

My dad and I leave for England Tuesday. I don’t think I’ll post again before then, and won’t be able to afterwards either. So I won’t be writing anything for a couple weeks, about. Maybe a little less. But, that’s just how it goes. Until then,

    Leaving on a mutherfucking jetplane.

    time for me to move on. I might come back, I might not. this ‘identity’ has been a useful tool in learning more about some of my friends, and more about myself.

    the inspiration for theBABYsnatcher came from a post tom did along, long time ago. It said something about starting an alternate blog, one where the person was ficticous, just for fun. So, I was inspired, the baby snatcher was born. Almost everything that pretained to his life was fiction. I did not, for instance, go to texas. I did however, incounter those interesting signs in the church bathroom, and I did rub my balls in bengay.
    theBABYsnatcher let me tell my feelings, thoughts and ideas to an audience unbiased by preconcieved notions about me. The ability to voice your opinion in that way is wonderful. I then could recieve feedback and comments on my ideas. I enjoyed it. however, it’s time has come to a close. It has become to wrapped up in itself. the parasite blog is now and henceforth dead.

    so long, it’s been fun, farewell. Maybe I’ll return. more likely I’ll move to a different blog, and let the parasite continue.

    ‘The show must go on, yeah
    Inside my heart is breaking
    My make-up may be flaking
    But my smile still stays on’

    Could be worse. You could have actually put bengay all over your crotch. Or did you really do that? Please say no…

  18. theBABYsnatcher Says:

    oh, I did that alright.

    don’t ever, ever, ever, do that. it was worse then when Iput tigerbalm all over my balls.

  19. MARK Says:

    ok i wont

  20. MARK Says:

    actually, all this talk is making me want to.

  21. theBABYsnatcher Says:

    hehehe. you’ll regret it.

    I have found the world’s stupidist man. after reading his review for Van Halen II, I decided that he was an idiot. but there are plenty of those around. but then I clicked the ‘learn more about me’ link. and about 150 other reviews popped up.

    Here are some of the highlights:

    Spiceworld. (5 stars)
    ‘My only question is, how could you not luv the Girls of Spice??
    In fact, this record is even fresher than their debut, and that’s saying quit a lot!!!’

    Skeletons From the Closet; best of the grateful dead (1 star):

    ‘In my expert view, these stoners simply got lucky. I mean, how else do you explain their legion of fanatic fans, or the fact that they even got signed to a major label at all? Truth be told, these guys are a bunch of Bob Dylan wannabees with long hair.’

    people like that make me want to hit them. but it gets better. and by that I mean he gets to be more and more of an idiot.

    Meteora by Linkin Park (5 stars):
    ‘This is one of the hottest young bands on the planet, and “Meteora” may just be one of the greatest records ever created. The reason I believe this is because “Meteora” is going absolutely ballistic on the charts. That’s how you know if a band is good, if they are doing well on the charts. Charts don’t lie, dudes.’ …. ‘Another reason I like this band is because they don’t take themselves too seriously, they just sort of “go with the flow”

    hehehe. stupid idiot. look what he says about Britney Spears:
    ‘In these times of strife, I seek Britney for consolation and wisdom - her music resonates like the mountain scent of a warm candle, within the confines of dusky garage apartment. Her voice soothes, like the tone of heartfelt poem, read by your very own mother, or another such close relation.’

    If I were him, I’d saysomething like ‘in these times of strife, Britneys mountianious boobs are like mountians to cling to.’

    and this makes me laugh: it’s about Nirvana:
    How many other bands can claim they started a little known movement known as “punk rock”? Not only that, but they also began the underground grunge movement, which has been carried on even today by the likes of better bands like Creed, Nickelback, and Limp Bizkit.’

    This man is a sad example of society today, driven only by what the major radio owners deam good enough to play, driving record sales and people’s ‘opinoins’.

    He gives Jimmy Eat World 5 stars. calling it ‘Tru Punk gone Awry”; he compares them to the sex pistols. if I were the sex pistols, (or nirvana, which he somehow works into the review), I’d shoot him for comparing me to jimmy eat world.
    ‘Like the Sex Pistols before them, rockers Jimmy Eat World (or JEW as they’re known in their inner circle) signify anarchy, rebellion, and overall mass chaos. Their sound is, in fact, reminiscent of vintage Pistols’ songs, and it’s no wonder the youngsters are clamoring for this new record. ‘

    He gives Appetite for destruction, the best of the guns and roses line, 2 stars, telling us to go buy Use your illiusion, a later, and very shittay GnR cd. Farther down he gives the soundtrack to ’saved by the Bell 4 stars’.

    I love this guy. whemever i feel stupid, I can come read something here, and feel like einstien. This guys shows to me that most people buy their music depending on how many cd it’s sold. this guy thinks that how good something is depends on everyone else’s opionions. I want to email him. email him a brick.

    and I’ve talked to much.


  22. theBABYsnatcher Says:

    hehehe… as his reviews progress his spelling of ‘thriller’ (of michael jackson fame) gradually gets shorter and shorter. first it was thriller, then thrilah, than thril. now it’s triler.

  23. MARK Says:

    i wonder if he realizes that the spice girls, britney spears, and all those other cuntgroups don’t even write their music…

    If britney were so wise she wouldnt have gotten eaten up and spit out by the Justinator like a thousand other girls.

  24. MARK Says:

    you should really update your briefs every day, Tom.

    snicker heeheee
