Ya know, normally on a Thursday evening, I’d prefer to relax after coming home from a long day at work. Sit down to a hardy and healthy fast food burger. Vegetate on the couch in a greasy food-induced coma. Maybe fire up the old SNES system for some old school gaming. But on the night of April 19th, 2018, I made a conscious decision to get off my arse and get out to an event. An event like none other, like nothing I personally have ever attended in my life. Yes ladies and gentlemen, one could call this a bucket list worthy event. I’m talking about some mirco violence. Minuscule mayhem. Midget on midget chaos. All taking place under the roof of Muncheez Bar and Grill in Beckley West Virginia, one of my favorite venues in the area. This place is always hosting great and unique events and shows (thank you Brian Reznor) and I’ll admit I have been slacking on the “support local stuff” quests as of late. So, as I stated, I decided it was high time to roll to Beckley. And throw my car out of alignment on the terrible interstate going there…and pay the ridiculous tolls, both to and from, which are supposed to fix said sh!t tier roads…But that’s not the point here. Could be the subject of a future rant though…stay tuned folks. Continue reading “Micro-Violence In Beckley, West Virginia!”
Hello gang. As many of you know, on Friday, March 23rd, Mother Nature went berserk and we in the Blue Ridge region got to experience all of Winter in a single 24 hour span. What a crock of $#!* that was…No electricity for days, trapped at your house, food going bad, no fan to sleep by…well, that was my story at least…some of you lucky @sses had generators, but it was still an ordeal, the likes of which many of us had not experienced in quite some time. I knew things were going to crap around 11 AM that day. The plan was to take my Mom out for her birthday dinner, but 10 minutes into our delicious Denny’s cuisine, I noticed through the window, that the sky appeared to be dumping ALL of its contents on everything outside. We choked down our food and high tailed it home…and that’s where we stayed for the rest of the weekend. Yay. Happy Birthday Ma… Continue reading “Exploring The Great Outdoors Of Southwest Virginia In Early Spring: 15 Inches of Snow Edition”
It’s 2018. Science is moving with leaps and bounds. We’ve seen advances in genetics and medicines, modern miracles, and amazing technology. Our children learn more now in the 3rd grade than many of us did in Junior High. Welcome to the glorious future! Why then, do I turn on the TV and hear that people are eating Tide pods. Eating detergent. WTF.

Fake News Nate here, bringing you my first official post. I felt that the subject matter of such an important event should be about something dear to my heart. Foodstuffs.
Hungry Man meals..we’ve all eaten them. Even if we weren’t that hungry, or that manly. Just the name alone evokes a feeling of satiated satisfaction. Alternatively, names like “Famished Fella” or “Peckish Chap” just don’t seem to convey the same satisfying, fill your belly, “Oh my God, i just wanna lay down” power of the Hungry Man meal.
