    When it gets warmer get up here. Fun stuff to do on the lake and around town in the summer.

  2. phoammhead Says:

    let it out, kp, especially the part about “techie-wankery” – lolz!

  3. garretc Says:


    I’ve found the key is that as long as I can recognize when I’m falling into that rut of repetition, I’ll be ok cause there’s always at least one small way you can mix up your day to day. And you’re on the right track, because if all I do is think “damn, I’ve been stuck lately” instead of “hey, that’s something new I can throw in the mix”, then I get nowhere…

  4. kenny powers Says:

    nice Jtran, sounds like a worthy road trip.

  5. gratefulcub Says:

    I might have to skip Phish at Churchill, just because I don’t know if my body could take it. It’s almost too much of the good stuff all at once.

    In my best Chris Rock: “You know I’m just bullshittin’ ”

    Maybe my wife could run a shuttle for us.

  6. Robear Says:


    really risky to make such an overt, far reaching attack on the middle class. especially when they have a centralized place to march against.

  7. SillyWilly Says:


    I go for about a month like you do, dl’ing every phish and dead show, but then I burn out and take a month off

    sucks when a hobby becomes stressful.

    but, yeah, sometimes I find my best stress-relievers when simply nothing interests me and I just try something random out of the blue.

    Case in point: I just started taking massive walks around Madison. Load up a Phish show, pick a route and just walk for four or five hours.

    Maybe it’ll get old in a month or two, but for now I’m still exploring the various neighborhoods in Madison. It’s kind of interesting to notice the different real estate projects and the way you can sense the socio-economics back ground of neighborhoods.

    @ garretc

    exactly, and that seems to be my problem (right there) all too often – the fact that i realize i’m in a rut but can’t seem to break the routine. i’m a creature of habit. but my conscience won’t leave me the fuck alone.

  9. garretc Says:


    Yup, walks are the shit, definitely a habit I’m glad I picked up in college, haven’t been out lately though… I’ll have to head back out soon enough I guess!

    Gosh, inspiration day on the board this morning, isn’t it?

  10. SillyWilly Says:


    the thought that comes to my mind when hearing the Kershaw stuff is

    This is what rock and roll can do.

    Great Simple > Bowie > Take me to the river > Bowie

    were the highlights

    “Case in point: I just started taking massive walks around Madison. Load up a Phish show, pick a route and just walk for four or five hours.

    “now THAT sounds good!” i used to do that when i was in Boston proper. used to also take long drives through scenic neighborhoods. i think in the spring i’ll try to start off the nicer sunny days by waking up like 2 hours earlier than necessary, taking a walk around this nice reservoir down the street, then sit on the porch and read the paper, drink some coffee. add bane on weekends.

  13. ChefBradford Says:

    Drive-by and then I’m out

    Thanks for the kind thoughts from all of you, didn’t mean to kill the board last night

    you’re good people
    thanks again

  14. Robear Says:

    the elimination of the main manufacturing sectors in the mid-west took place gradually, over-time. The unions were complicit. This time around, the unions are actually standing up for their workers.

  15. SillyWilly Says:


    and kids in Madison just sincerely enjoy rallying.

    haha. Madison was one of the most radical campuses during Vietnam. They had the riots and the curfew and then of course, those three kids bombed the Science building that was making the Napalm.

    But, yeah some college students like drinking, some like their frats, some love their football team

    in Madison rallying is like a party in itself. Everyone wears their UW gear like its a football game, and they drink and do the football cheers

    kinda surreal now that I think about it

  16. garretc Says:


    That’s why I throw in easy short stuff, cause I can always build it up from there. For example, I took a meditation class last semester and I wanted to continue practicing, so this semester I was like, “ok, I get out of class at the exact same time every day, that gives me a perfect time to just meditate for 15 minutes every day.” 15 minutes out of your day is nothing! And now I’m up to 20 and will probably be moving to 25 soon, once I again reach the point of thinking “20 minutes just doesn’t seem like enough”…

    And take reading! I had a book I’d been working through for ages and ages and I’d gotten stalled on and so I decided, hell, if I can just sit down and read 10 minutes a day, that’s better then nothing, and I finished a week later after a couple several hour periods of reading. I’ve read a book and a half since then.

    So, clearly I’m an awesome person, but the point I was really trying to make is that habits are easier to form than it can seem sometimes…

  17. gratefulcub Says:

    Politcally, who in the hell decided it was a good electoral plan to go to war with the teachers? Who hates teachers?

  18. garretc Says:


    Well, it IS a long time until football season comes back… Gotta fill the void!


    I do! Have you heard that they can make up to $78,000 a year including benefits?!?!? God damn fat cats… They probably roll blunts in 100 dollar bills and then throw them away, just because they can afford it…

  19. gratefulcub Says:

    ^That’s why I always wanted to go to school in Madison. Or hell, just live there. It seems to be the one place outside of San Francisco that still stands up and fights after everyone else quit. San Fran has it’s own reasons to be a bit out of the ordinary.

    Madison just seems to do because they drink tiger blood. It’s just who they are.

    So thank you Madison.

  20. Jtran Says:

    Clearly garret is just awesome, yes

  21. Robear Says:

    g-cub, the billionaire club that picked this Walker cat thinks they’re invincible.

  22. kenny powers Says:

    @ cub

    jeff spicoli

    @ garretc – thanks for the tips. and i’ve been meaning to get a few books too! gotta gitter’done. “clearly i’m an awesome person” lol

  23. garretc Says:


    That’s really what I wanted people to take away from that post, but I didn’t want to come off as too conceited, so I tacked on an inspirational message for good measure…

  24. SillyWilly Says:

    I must be growing up or something, KP

    but I get such a kick out of simple things like that. Wake up, hippie speedball, spin some BB suggestions, then head out on a walk

    i find myself smiling to myself. there’s something so pure to me in the idea of walking or moving with no goal in mind. Just movement.

    Pitt Uconn got pretty good at the end of the half.
