Blood Brothers tour dates…
October 4, 2014: Modern Sky Festival – NYC.
Modern Sky Festival? Never heard of it.
What's with all the Chinese acts?
Modern Sky Festival is an outdoor rock music festival in Beijing, China.
In August 2014, Modern Sky announced its first festival in the United States, to be held in Central Park's Rumsey Playfield October 4–5.
The Blood Brothers, in Central Park, sandwiched between sets by two Chinese acts, leading into Jamie Lidell and Dead Prez celebrating the music of Nigerian synth-funk pioneer William Onyeabor.
During a nap today, I dreamt about catching WWE superstar Daniel Bryan, buck naked and corpse pale, with a crew cut and three kitchen knives stuck in the right side of his face, passing through a commercial kitchen on his way to confront Triple H and Stephanie McMahon on stage at a performing arts centre.
I recently began logging my dreams, or what I can remember happened in them.
Previously in Jon's dreams:
I am trapped in a time loop, and a cloaked figure busts down the door of my hotel room and shoots me in the sole of my left foot with an arrow, which tunnels through skate shoe, flesh, and bone to create a glory hole.
I am at a school for invisible people, dabbing paint on my head so that it can be seen. I then pick up Chinese take-out from celebrity chef Susur Lee.

John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats fame wrote a novel, Wolf in White Van.
When you search for it on Google Play, the second result is what appears to be a romance novel titled Vegetarian Mate.
[Erotic Paranormal Menage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, werewolves, HEA]
Rochelle Murphy is looking for adventure and takes to the road. In desperate need of a bathroom, she stops at a large estate and asks to use the facilities. After an unconventional and humorous meeting, Jarrod, Malcolm, and Braxton Friess know that the feisty, klutzy Rochelle is their mate—and a vegetarian.
"This klutzy vegetarian is The One."
Time and again Rochelle injures herself, and whilst she is recuperating, the three Friess brothers try to woo her into their hearts as well as their beds. Finally Rochelle accepts the three brothers, but they have unintentionally left out a significant fact, which sends Rochelle looking for some time out.
Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.
No incest. Just good clean wholesome fraternal lycanthropic polyamory.
I'm at a Wetzel's Pretzels, and a sign on its cash register notes that this Wetzel's Pretzels no longer accepts $50 and $100 bills because "too many counterfeits."
Who are these people buying pretzels with counterfeit $50 and $100 bills? And are they just paying with $50 and $100 bills, or are they buying, like, $85 worth of pretzels?
And the best television show title of 2014 is…
Scrotal Recall !
Folk-rock singer Johnny Flynn plays Dylan Witter, a man diagnosed with chlamydia who must contact a different former sexual partner in each episode to inform them of the possible souvenir of him that they possess.
Lost in the all the talk about True Detective season two is that Tom Hardy is playing an adversary of Cillian Murphy's gangster boss in series two of Peaky Blinders. Bane vs. Scarecrow in 1920s England!
I have never seen it, but Training Day seems like an odd film for marketers to keep referencing.
over a decade of training day references
I like how End of Watch is deemed worthy enough to be referenced, but not so much that it can't just say "from the writer and director of End of Watch."
"Bang Bang! is an upcoming Bollywood adaptation of Knight and Day produced by Fox Star Studios."
Knight and Day? That's an odd choice for a film to adapt.
[googles "fox star studios productions"]
"Mr. X is an upcoming Bollywood adaptation of Hollow Man."
[googles "bollywood adaptation training day"]
"Shagird is a Bollywood film loosely inspired by Training Day."
So ostensible American cultural classic Training Day doesn't merit a full Bollywood adaptation, but Knight and Day and Hollow Man do?
The director of Shagird should pen a loose adaptation of End of Watch.

[sigh] Alright. Here we go…
INT. CHIPOTLE – NIGHT
Jon: Hey, what's the passcode for the men's washroom?
Jon: 1-2-3-4-5? That's amazing. I've got the same combination on my luggage!
Jon: Spaceballs? No…?
Tumblelog Idea: Chipotle Stories. I have a few. Surely others do too.
I saw a dude at Chipotle order a burrito to go, throw some napkins and a whole bottle of hot sauce in his bag, and walk out.
Next in line for [Taco Bell's] Freeze line of drinks is the Strawberry Starburst Freeze. [source]
How will it compare to Jamba Juice's "secret" Pink Star[burst] smoothie?
INT. BJ'S BREWHOUSE – NIGHT
The dude sitting beside me at the bar orders a grilled chicken sandwich and chicken pot stickers.
His sandwich arrives, followed shortly by his pot stickers.
"Oof. It's all arriving at once!" he remarks to the server. "Can you bring the pot stickers back in, like, 10 minutes?"
10 minutes later, the server returns with his pot stickers, not re-heated or anything.

How was I unaware of the Christian parody band ApologetiX until today?
Parody of "Wild Thing" by Tone Lōc

On October 15, 2011, Lōc was hospitalized after collapsing on stage during a concert in Atlanta.
On March 16, 2013, Lōc collapsed on stage at a performance in Des Moines.
