Barred for Life in SLC (and Farmington)

Here are some of the pictures from the photoshoot for Ebersole's Barred for Life book. There was a pretty puny showing at Nobrow- if the press had picked it up better there may have been more people sporting bars....but hey, we contacted all sorts of people and the City Weakly since the beginning of this year, asked some friends who might know some people....blah blah blah. Stewart and Stefan are totally cool and they were totally mellow about the whole thing. They stayed at our pad in Farmington and made killer fish tacos, which were delicious!! They got to take nice relaxing showers, and then in the morning we went back to Nobrow, and they got another girl, Echo, who's way cool, photographed and interviewed. Then they were off!! I hope the rest of the trip treats them well and we run into them somewhere down the line!! Best wishes to you guys--JiMi GeRm and Shelley Sidle-Owens

All the photos by Stewart Dean Ebersole

Do you feel the need for a little structure in your day? Or maybe you need this for a bad-ass costume for Halloween? Either way, Threadbanger AND Instructables are both great websites to hit for DIY crafts- Click here for the tutorial.

Passive Aggressive Laughter

Passive Aggressive Notes is "painfully polite and hilariously hostile writings from shared spaces the world over" AND a must-visit if you are ever in need of a mood-boost. The comments are also quite amusing!

My personal favorite is the anonymous rant against anonymity however, they are all very funny, and it isn't as if I have read every one.... yet :)

Just Say No/ Smack

A collage by Shelley Sidle/Staysik....


rant platform :)

I put this on Facebook, but its pretty amusing and the FB wall gets read and changes so quickly. This doesn't as much. Anyway :

I waited patiently for about a month for my paycheck, after STILL not receiving it, I email my ex-boss & ask what's taking so long after I had filled out all the paper work (twice!)..... I later get a call from her boss saying she's withholding my check until she gets the Barbizon Instructor Outline & model handbook. I think the key to holding something "hostage" is to TELL THE PERSON!! Yay Barbizon. :|

Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful, UT should be SHUT DOWN

Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful, UT is the most incompetent places EVER !! After their appallingly terrible medical "care" in the ER, they are now trying to bill me over $600 even though the insurance should cover the bulk of that!! What a joke. I'm lucky the infection on my burn didn't spread since they gave no antibiotics. Know any good malpractice lawyers?? This would be a SURE win. What a pathetic hospital.

Adopt a Punk Rocker today!

Have you seen the adopt-a-coral reef, adopt-a-forest, adopta-this, adopta-that?
What about adopt a punk rocker:
Countless punk-rockers are unable to find work due to permanently altered appearances, inability to conform, criminal records or all of the above. Please give a ten-twenty- or thirty dollar tax-deductible donation and I assure you your modest pledge will be used to .... help a starving out-of-work hardcore punk rocker.

Making some money during recession times

There's a lot of scams out there, and I'm trying to find the ones that aren't scams! One way to make money online is by writing content articles and some will print creative writing too:

1- try going to , and sign up for the writer's compensation program. Write articles, make friends in the network, and comment and rate other people's articles, who will usually return the favor. Some people claim to make hundreds to even a grand a month off their writing, but I (Germ and Staysik) haven't seen this happen yet.

2- try writing on a site similar to eHow, is Bukisa: some people say that they've made more money doing this, we haven't really seen this happen, but maybe it'll work for you!

3- another website, similar to the other two mentioned is Triond.
Also there's Suite 101- same deal: write online...

4- Try earning points by shopping, clicking on adds, and participating in surveys-- contact me through comments or send a message through the blog and I'll give you the information for it to get you signed up. There's also another company called Freeride that we haven't tried, but it may be worth the effort, who knows?

5- Think up ideas for domain names, and if yours is picked, you get paid $25!

6- The other writing websites that, depending on who you talk to, are good ways to make money, but we've not yet tried.

7- is always hiring for various guides and they seem to pay you well! Check with them frequently!

If you know of others, please tell us how you are doing, and what seems to work. It's hard times and we can all use the extra cash!! Good luck.

BBH Attack....

The 80's revival is getting just scary. Flipping through the channels today, we encountered a few frightening people- all of them had frightening Big Blonde Hairdo's. The first lady was a Tammy Faye Baker look-and-act-alike, Jan Crouch (sp?) on a religious channel. It was very very very disturbing. I think she could have hidden many people in her wig, and her make-up and acting was right out of the Tammy Faye Baker playbook! Then we switched the channel and a guy who was talking about some self-help thing had really big blonde hair, and was also scary. Two channels away was a Spanish channel, and a lady with a huge blonde wig was chasing these guys. The acting was almost as atrocious as the acting by Jan Crouch. We have decided that this was just taking the 80's nostalgia all too far, with the wrong things being brought into the focus. The attack of the Big Blonde Hairdo's is upon us...........................
