    That isn't a white elephant gift exchange. That's a different kind, I don't remember what it is, though. A white elephant one is just where everybody draws a name out of a hat and everybody exchanges all at once, that's it.

    I got 50 cases of pop.

    Now that I have them stacked in my living room I feel like adding to it every month until it forms a staircase you can take to the ceiling.

    we always did white elephants as a gift exchange where you gave the most embarrassing gift possible. Like that three foot long double ended dildo for your redneck uncle frank and such

    what no

    you unwrap it when you pick it so you know if its worth stealing or not

    it totally screws over the person who picked it if they get something good, because everyone knows about it

    to be honest I haven't heard a lot of hank III

    I heard some stuff he did with the Melvins that was pretty rad

    and everything I've heard about him is pretty cool

    Al Jourgensen is a pretty cool guy

    I liked a lot of Lard, and he did a great job producing that song horror of yig for Gwar

    I head the name and sort of assumed that they were like the Crucifucks or something

    which would have been rad, too

    but now I'm all excited and curious to hear this Buck Satan

    I will make an effort to do so

    although this means I will probably not listen to him, due to my sheer laziness

    and then two years from now someone will mention him

    I'd say he's as country as they come.
    Hank 3 is more akin to Merle Haggard than Tobey Keith though.
    Like, I fucking love country music, but I hate this pop shit. In my eyes, Hank 3 is to country what bands like like Radiohead are to rock music. It's just someone experimenting again.


    In other news, my family did x-mas this morning, because we're doing it with the fiancee's family tomorrow.
    My lady bought me some seven jeans, a wicked new coat, my uncle got me a glicee print of the original submarine voyage poster from disneyland and framed it up for me, I got one of those 20Q balls (which was able to guess that I was thinking of both my cock, and snot), a copy of The New Frontier, some new boot socks, some candy, and a copy of this which I've been trying to find for four years (amazon always says they have them, but it's bullshit and no one can ever get it to you). He's my favorite photographer, and it was worth getting just to see the look on my dad's face when he saw what he and my mother had been hunting for.

    I can seriously dig some merle haggard

    especially since he signed onto anti records, he's put out some good stuff and it is awesome to see him able to get back to his roots

    but he's just an old-timey honkeytonk motherfucker that don't take no shit

    I like that in my music
