bam! 112 projected inches of Ms Felicia Day! I don't like to brag but after a hard day's grind there's nothing quite like throwing a redhead against the wall, if you're picking up what I'm putting down. And it (she?) looks a lot better when the early morning sunlight isn't blasting through the shutters....

so there we were, Saturday night at Joe's Underground... the topic turned to kimchi and then things got a little heated. Which is when Facial Hair here stoped playing, stepped off stage, walked up to our table and agreed with me. Luckily, I had my camera. Then he walked back, picked up the guitar, and strummed a little cowboy tune. And that's a whiskey sour, just a regular whiskey sour. I don't know why they threw it at me in a pseudo-femme glass.

they wouldn't let you take pictures inside, but it was AWESOME. You're gropued into little bands of five, and two high schoolers wearing fatigues pretend to be soldiers as they escort you throw this Apocalypsed-up old motel - they hit all the cliches, the overworked doctor explaining the problem before getting eaten by his patient, zombie arms grabbing your legs as you pass by, you run into a scared-shitless group of lost soldiers whose leader gets infected so he pulls out his pistol and starches himself, there's a few Mad Max maniacs running around... it's just incredible. And if for an extra ten-spot, they'll give you a twenty-round paintball gun and tell you to aim for the head. AMAZING.

This huge bit of exposed granite is called Stone Mountain, and it supplied the minerals for about half of the munitions used against Lincoln's Boys in the War Between Brothers. So naturally, this is where the Klan's 1915 revival kicked off and that's why there's massive pictures of Jeff Davis, Robby Lee, and Stonewall Jackson carved into it. Goddamn Confederates.

let me rephrase that: goddamn confederate leadership - the guys that always seem to start the wars but never seem to fight in them, goes for both sides
