FedEx Employee Throwing Boxes

Posted on Saturday, September 14, 2013 in Music, News, Personal

It really sucks to see this FedEx Employee Throwing Boxes.

I know it’s more than likely a regular occurrence, but the thing that really bothers me about it is that so many employees that we trust to handle our stuff do this shit. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to see this. We were at Southwest Airlines last weekend getting on the plane for our NY Triton Festival show, and we asked the Airport Employees to put FRAGILE stickers on our equipment. I even politely asked them to handle my custom bass guitar with care because the coffin case I had it in was beginning to fall apart from years of abuse on the road while touring with Deadstar Assembly. Right when I turned around to walk away, I looked back for a second and watched them literally throwing our equipment cases onto the belt. They could have nicely set it down, but they chose to throw them instead. Before boarding the flight, we watched from the window as they loaded our gear onto the plane and the guy dropped Mubo’s keyboard on the ground and proceeded to throw the rest of our equipment onto the plane. It’s a shame, What’s the point of asking for Fragile stickers anymore? It seems like they see that and decide to throw it JUST BECAUSE it says FRAGILE on it. Pretty fucked up. What do you think about employees handling your belongings in this manner? Should they be fired immediately?

And here are more videos of eomployees throwing around someone’s belongings. You can find many more all over the internet too with a quick Google search:

Why Kittens Can Kill You

Posted on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 in News, Pets & Animals

kittens Why Kittens Can Kill You

OMFG! These kittens are so adorable you just want to squeeze them until they explode with kitty guts all over your face, right? Well guess what, You just might have to after reading this post. These cute cuddly fur-balls can kill you!

What? Kittens? I bet you’re thinking picturing all those horrible mean cats that attack unsuspecting victims. Maybe you’re picturing the awesomely deadly cat from the old 1989 horror movie Pet Cemetery?

Nope!

I’m still referring to These little fuzz-balls who end up stealing hundreds of hours (sometimes thousands) from you while you’re on the internet wasting time watching cat videos and funny I can Haz Cheeseburger photos that make you screech in the most girlie way possible. Yup, that’s right! Well, maybe not just adorable little kittens, full grown adult cats too. It’s actually in a parasite they carry: Toxiplasmosis.

For any of you who don’t know anything about it, it’s a parasitic disease that lives in many cats. It can also get passed from the mother cat to its kittens, and, that’s right, you guessed it, straight to you! You’ll get it from having contact with cats and their feces, which is inevitable as you’re cleaning out their litter box. Wanna know if you have Toxiplasmosis? Most likely, you’ll begin having flu-like symptoms and then you’ll feel better after a week. However, if you have issues with your immune system, It can get a lot worse. Say you’re pregnant, have HIV+, going through chemo therapy or just had an organ transplant… All of a sudden you’ll notice your brain has major inflammation, your eyes are scarring, and then you look down and notice you’ve got these horrible skin lesions. Scientists are even beginning to realize that Toxiplasmosis plays a part in schizophrenia, so you may even begin to go crazy. Have you been hearing voices or talking to walls lately? Is there a cat sitting across the room from you giving you the old evil eye? Maybe this article will help things make a bit more sense as to why this is happening. But hey, Look at the bright side… At least you wont have to illegally download music anymore in order to hear it.

And yes, Your car most certainly has it.

Have a great day, my fellow cat owners. icon smile Why Kittens Can Kill You

Steve Jobs has announced his Resignation as CEO of Apple

steve jobs appe 400x291 Steve Jobs has announced his Resignation as CEO of Apple

Steve Jobs Steps Down as CEO of Macintosh/Apple

As most of you have already heard, A major development has occured out of Cupertino, California: Apple CEO Steve Jobs has decided to step down from his position. The board has chosen to name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple. They said “Steve’s extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company.”

Steve himself published the following letter on one of Macintosh’s Sites:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.
As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.
I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.
I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
-Steve

Apple has confirmed that Jobs will stay on as Chairman of the board.

I disagree with all of these people who are claiming that this is the best time to sell your apple stocks. In my opinion this would actually be a great time to BUY apple stock because they’re going to drop a bunch in price from all of the investors who fear apple’s downfall and sell their stocks. However, I guarantee it will skyrocket again pretty soon. There’s no way Apple is going to be hurting even though most of you know how I hate apple products with a passion. I think they’ve paved the way for a long time to come though. Steve Jobs is still on the board and will have say in a lot of what goes on at Apple Headquarters. He’s definitely got the drive and conviction that most people could only wish to have a small percentage of. He has changed consumer products for the whole world and how high the bar is set for competitors creating similar products. Apple will do just fine as long as they follow his philosophy, values, & ethos.

Bam Margera First Inteview After Ryan Dunn Tragedy

Posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 in Entertainment, News

For those of you who live under a rock and haven’t heard yet, Jackass star Ryan Dunn has passed away. Apparently he was speeding after a night of hanging out with some friends and crashed on his way home. This video below is the first one that really shows Bam Margera speaking about the incident.

I’ve had close friends pass away and I can only imagine what Bam is going through right now. Ryan Dunn was like a brother to him and they’ve been together pretty much all of their lives. I was really hoping that this wasn’t true, but as I’ve grown to understand as the years go on, the older you get, the more you get to see stuff like this happen. It definitely wakes you up and reminds you that life is short and can be taken away at any moment.

I had the privilege of meeting Ryan Dunn a few times and hanging out with him for a bit as many others have. He was down to earth and appreciated every last one of his fans. I really couldn’t believe he took the time to shoot some video with friends and I for Hardcore Mayhem and it just goes to show how cool he can be. Such a shame to lose someone who has been able to make so many people laugh and forget about the bad things going on in their lives while they watched Dunn make a fool out of himself. Things will definitely be different in the Jackass Camp.

This video is super hard to watch…

SEARS AUTO CENTER IN BOCA RATON TOWN CENTER IS FULL OF SCAMMERS!

Posted on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 in Information, News, Personal

BEWARE WHEN BRINGING YOUR VEHICLE TO SEARS AUTO CENTER IN BOCA RATON TOWN CENTER!
Big and fucking bold so when someone searches for this place full of assholes, I hope my page is the first one that comes up so that people are warned!

My mom decided to bring her car into Sears Automotive at Boca Raton Town Center Mall. Normally, she brings her car over to Sil’s Transmission in West Palm Beach since they have done a great job in repairing her car but lately she’s been having a problem with her turning signals flashing and she didn’t want to be patient and wait for Sil’s shop to find the replacement switch for her turning signals. They were trying to avoid grabbing the parts from the dealership since they could possibly be found a lot cheaper from someone else. My mom figured since she used to bring her car to sears for normal maintenance, that she would try leaving it with them to repair the issue with her turning signal switch. Once she dropped off her car with them, they immediately ask her to come inside to view some damage in her car. They show her that two hoses are busted and tell her she needs them replaced. (These are hoses that were just replaced a couple weeks before hand, but regardless she decided to let them put new ones in.)

They also tell her she needs an alignment, and that her thermostat was bad (which she also just had replaced two weeks prior). She decides to go ahead and fix whatever they say she needs just as long as she gets her car back in working order. Once she’s ready to pick up her car, I called her and decided I would go with her to make sure they did everything properly on her car. They ended up charging her around $600 for the work they did and she asked if her car was completely finished, to which they agreed yes, the car was ready. She just handed them her card and paid without complaining about the price and we went on our way. She let me drive in case I’d notice anything that she wouldn’t normally and the first thing I notice is that the car is pulling to the right. This obviously meant the alignment wasn’t done properly. She tells me to immediately turn around because they charged her $75 for the alignment. I put my turning signal on to turn and that’s when we notice the signals weren’t fixed either. I knew everything was downhill from here.

We headed back to Sears Automotive in Boca Raton and they ask us what the problem is. We explained to them that the turning signals still weren’t working and that the alignment needed to be checked once again. A technician entered the car with me to take it for a ride and immediately started feeding me excuses on why the alignment wasn’t done properly. He first stated that her tires were bald so the alignment wouldn’t be perfect. Then after driving the car for a bit he kept trying to tell me that it was pulling because we weren’t on even road, then he found a flat piece of road and same thing. Then he stated the ball joints on the XTERRA were bad and needed to be replaced. Regardless, he took it back in to re-align the car. I asked him how come he didn’t tell my mom that the alignment wouldn’t be perfect because of those issues? She would have never agreed to pay for an alignment if they told her they wouldn’t be able to get it 100% because of her tires being bald, her ball joints being bad, and the road not always being flat. Then I asked why the turning signals weren’t working and he began to fiddle with the switch. They then told us it was an electrical issue and that they would have to contact the dealership in order to have them fix the issue. This is complete bullshit because if they would have told my mom that in the first place, she would have never left the car with them. I then began looking over all the paper work and noticed they charged my mom for 5 hours of Labor when they only really worked at most, 2 hrs on her car. After they finished fixing the alignment for the second time and went for another test drive, it was still a bit off. They said we’d have to speak with a manager but he was gone for the day and we’d have to come back tomorrow.

I asked why they charged $85 coolant when the most expensive coolant you can possibly find on store shelves are about $17 at most. They said, “Sorry sir, that’s sears prices, not my fault, we don’t make the prices.” They also charged $125 per hose they changed out on top of the cost of the hose itself which one was about $35 and another was around $55. I asked about the thermostat and they told me it was all rusty from someone possibly putting water in the radiator. The thermostat was changed out two weeks prior, even with the filthiest water in the world, a thermostat would not rust and break within two weeks. I asked to see it and they told me they would get it for me but it had been disposed of and they never went and got it.
After all of this mess, we decided to leave and just contact corporate and then try to do a charge back. It was not fair and I feel they took advantage of my mom. There’s no way she would have gotten any other work done to her car had they notified her that they would not be able to fix her turning signals. Also, had they warned her about the ball joints and her tires being bald, she may have even agreed to have them fix that as well so that her alignment was done properly. They also mentioned her tire balancing was free of charge, but they never balanced the tires.

The next day, My mom spoke with the manager at the Sears Automotive in Boca Raton and he was completely rude to her. Even after explaining this whole mess to him, he said all he could do was give her the money back for her alignment which they agreed they couldn’t do properly. I can’t grasp how changing two hoses, a thermostat and an alignment would come out to over $600. It’s a complete rip off and they definitely took advantage of her being a woman and not knowing anything about cars. I mean c’mon, $85 for coolant? WTF?
I spoke with corporate and they called me back the next day. They mentioned that no one was responding to them at the Sears Automotive Center in Boca Raton and that it usually takes up to 48hrs for these cases. It’s been a week now and I’ve already called Corporate again 3 more times to find out what they’re going to do for us and even left them voice mails with my number, case number, and name and they have yet to get back to me. I hope everyone can take something from this and realize to be super careful when dealing with places like this. I know everyone has heard many horror stories about auto technicians taking advantage of their customers. I’ve seen it first-hand many times and have even seen guys who will purposefully ruin something in your vehicle so you have to come back. Just be careful and always try to have someone a bit more knowledgeable with you so you don’t have this happen to you. Also, if possible, always keep an eye on your car when they’re looking it over.

You dun goofed

Posted on Sunday, July 18, 2010 in News

I woke up this morning and saw this video below and couldn’t help but start cracking up laughing. Blogs across the internet have been posting articles titled, ” Jessi Slaughter given PCP by her father? ” and of course it became an instant trending topic on Google Trends.

Jessi Slaughter posted a video in response to all of the people leaving her horrible comments online and the result was the next viral video which you’ll probably begin seeing on the news as well as Where are they now shows down the line.

The best part about this video below is of course, her father. If anything is amazing, this is:


I’ll pop a glock in your mouth and make a brain slushie. ‘Cause you dun Goofed!

Deadstar Assembly Get’s Ready for Another Tour!

Posted on Thursday, July 15, 2010 in Music, News

Germany, Here we come!

After about 8 Years of playing shows in the US, Deadstar Assembly finally gets ready to embark on their next level of touring. We’re currently gearing up for the second leg of the Coat of Arms tour which will begin at Germany’s Summer Breeze Open Air Festival. You can find out more information about the tour on the Summer Breeze website. Some of the bands we will be performing with at this festival include: Sepultura, Napalm Death, GWAR, Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, Agnostic Front, Behemoth, Dark Funeral, Dying Fetus, Gorgoroth, Ill Nino, Macabre, My Dying Bride, Sick of it All, Suffocation, The 69 Eyes, and many more! You can check out the full list on their Bands Page.

We got word that this 3-day festival is already sold out. There will be about 90 Bands and 30,000 people for each day of the festival! I’m mostly excited about the fact that I can finally leave the country again and especially for a show this big. For those of you who didn’t know, my Brazilian passport had expired and it was a bit of a bitch for me to get it renewed. I’m not an American Citizen, just a legal resident, and it was a lot harder than it should have been for me to renew the passport. Anyone who’s had to deal with the debacle will tell you, dealing with consulates are less than appealing. Their web sites are missing a ton of important information and just trying to find out what I needed to do was bad enough, let alone trying to call them. They’re the most unhelpful people you’ll ever deal with. You call them, and they tell you to email the site for more information, then they reply to the email and tell you to call them. It’s like a never ending FOR loop in a poorly written piece of software.

Regardless, after all of that was taken care of, I got more great news that we’re also going back out west for this second leg of the tour. We’ll be performing in states such as Colorado, Utah, Washington, Nevada, and one of my favorites, California. We get to perform at The Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood, CA for the second time and I can’t wait! This part of the tour will be with The Dreaming. The Dreaming includes Christopher Hall (Singer of Stabbing Westward) and Carlton Bost (Guitarist of Deadsy).

I’m looking forward to the upcoming tour and hope everything works out the way it’s supposed to.

Trooper VS Ambulance Driver

Posted on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 in News

I become more and more disappointed every day with America’s state troopers and police departments. I’ve got way too many stories of incidences where they were incredibly wrong and no one has done anything about it.

People didn’t just begin hating cops for the hell of it. There’s obviously many reasons why the police departments are not only feared, but abhorred.

Today I read an article in the news about a state trooper in Oklahoma City, Daniel Martin, who decided to pull over an ambulance. He was Bothered when the ambulance driver failed to yield to him as he raced to provide backup on a call and thought the driver flipped him an obscene gesture.

The troopers’ lawyer claimed he didn’t realize there was a patient in the back of the ambulance. The patient in the back of the ambulance was being taken to the hospital and his son rode with them. The son proceeded to take out his cell phone and video tape the incident from the back of the ambulance and captured the whole thing.

Apparently, once the trooper pulled them over, a Paramedic jumped out from the back and demanded that Martin speak with him instead of the driver.

“You get back into the ambulance, I’m talking to the driver,” the trooper yelled.

The paramedic replied, “I’m in charge of this unit, sir.”

Martin tells the driver he’s going to get a ticket for failure to yield. “I ain’t going to be putting up with that shit,” Martin said. “You understand Me!?”

Then the paramedic said, “And I won’t be putting up with you talking to my driver like that.”

The situation kept getting worse and escalating while the paramedic repeatedly told Martin he had a patient he needed to take to the hospital and Martin just kept yelling for him to get back into the ambulance.

The trooper later claimed he didn’t know there was a patient in the back and that he either didn’t hear it or it didn’t register.

I personally believe he didn’t give a shit. His pride was hurt and all of a sudden he must have felt that he was right, as most cops do in a situation like that. This was way out of control and got to a point where the trooper grabbed the paramedic by the neck and proceeded to try arresting him.

These type of stories are becoming all too common these days. Troopers are filled with control issues and feel that their badge gives them the right to act so ridiculous that even stopping an ambulance seems like it’s an okay thing to do. What I don’t get is, if he was in a rush to provide backup to another officer, what the hell gave him enough time to do a traffic stop? It makes no sense to me and never will. No need to cry like a little bitch with a skinned knee and shit just because he was not “yielded” to.

What kind of society has this become where we have bullies with badges running around full of ego and letting it get in the way of their job. Someone needs to do some deflating around here…

Want to make Easy Money? Here’s one way that works!

Posted on Saturday, March 21, 2009 in News

Ok, you have to check this out:
http://www.chattotext.com/amember/go.php?r=6393&i=l0

It’s a 5-minute video about a brand new tool you can add to your social network page (works now with Facebook and Bebo, and soon MySpace). You just add it to your profile page and your friends can send you a private text message to your cell phone, and you can reply with your cell phone and they’ll get it while they’re still on your profile page!

It’s called Chat To Text.

It’s all explained in this video:
http://www.chattotext.com/amember/go.php?r=6393&i=l0

I’ve installed it on my Facebook Page, and it works great!

Let me know what you think!

I’ve already got some people to sign up and if you do the same you can make just as much as they show in the video. I’m going to be posting a screen shot soon of all the people I have who already signed up and show everyone that it’s real and that you actually do make money. If for some reason you can’t get anyone to sign up, the only thing you lose is about $6 and $6 is a great amount to chance making a few hundred to over a thousand. The other good thing is, you can always cancel you’re account if you’re not making enough from it.

I wouldn’t have ever posted this if it wasn’t a real opportunity. Since I’ve already made more than it costs to run monthly, all the extra money is just pocketed. I didn’t think this was real at first since I’m weary about get rich quick schemes, but this has proven itself to me already and I hope you take the same steps and find out for yourself. If you can get at least 3 people to sign up, the program will already pay for itself. Then if your 3 friends each get 3 friends to sign up, you’re on your way to making easy money by just sitting back and watching the numbers increase!

Thanks in advance if you do choose to sign up and good luck!
