Aaron Spelling once hired Van Halen to play Tori's birthday party. True fact.

Alrightythen ....
Back to music ....
Van Halen was pretty good, straight up fun, DLR was full on (good to see), bunch of new songs (good to hear), and a heavy emphasis on VH 2 (an underrated classic). Overall, a good show. The setlist lacked a couple of Tuesday night's rockers like Romeo's Delight, but no complaints.

My friend and I paid $20 each for van halen last night. We missed Kool and rhe Gang. Our seats were in sec 102 row G. We left before the encore. It wasnt a great exciting show.

^ nice try. so full of shit your going to float away.

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 8:01 AM

^I think you would sink if you are full of shit

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 8:21 AM

the buoyancy of your shit actually depends on your diet. if you eat a lot of meat and dairy, it's likely to sink. if you eat a more fibrous and vegetal diet, it's likely to float. it all stinks, though.

true story.

Speaking of shit, I just found out that Todd P has constipation problem. His shit is weak, and he screams a lot while attempting bowel movements. He typically employs Ryan Schreiber's dick to remove his doody bubbles. I wrote a informational pamphlet on this if anyone is interested.
