I hate AVC

In the town I grew up in there is a community college called Antelope Valley College. When I was young and attending this school, it was a great experience. The teachers were good, the students were decent, I had a blast and learned a bit.

Returning to this school to take some fun classes after earning a Bachelor's degree from a major university, I am shocked by how this place of "higher education" has turned into a cesspool of stupidity and senseless bureaucracy.

I now hate AVC. I know many people who attend the college currently or have in the fairly recent past feel the same. After dealing with some more senseless bureaucracy today I thought that maybe I should start a blog for people to come together on the subject.

In my mind this blog would be a place to indulge in some outright bitching and complaining, but to go one step further... building an army of students, staff, and faculty from different disciplines and backgrounds who want to enact change.

The domain is available, and I am seriously considering starting the site this week. I'm looking for COMMITTED contributors. If you or someone you know would be interested, please email me.

Portland trip, Day 7, part ONE

Beginning the drive home we hit some bad weather and traffic out of Portland, but there was a lot of funny footage! Check out the first part of day 7, the drive from Portland to Medford.

Here is a tour of the house Tim and I were staying in, our favorite taco truck, a weird Denny's, Tim pooping, and my commentary on female gas station attendants in Oregon.

Also, the song in the beginning of the video is called "I'll Wait" by The Prids, off the forthcoming album Chronosynclastic , available June 11th on Velvet Blue Music. Tim and I had the pleasure of staying in the house of two of the members and their significant others (Tim's brother is dating the lovely bass player, Mistina.)

Entire Ohm's Law set!

I played with my good buddy Tim's musical endeavor Ohm's Law while on our road trip. On the Friday we were in Portland we drove across the river to play at a old time soda shop called Pop Culture.

Someone caught the entire set and you can watch it here!(link)
