Before I get into all the good positive stuff, I would like to take a second and share a very brief bit on how I feel about the current talk of the web would would be SOPA and PIPA! Firstly, fuck that. Excuse my French. But this is the hugest violation upon American Freedom Of Speech in EVER! If this passes who knows what else will happen, but getting away with this will open the door for some many unconstitutional laws to be passed with little opinion from the public. It’s times like these when it is really obvious how important the internet is. I don’t watch television, so this may be wrong, but I would have not heard about these bills when they were birthed originally a few years ago if it had no been for the internet. The people are not being informed of this through any media outlet other than the internet, and up until recently no one really knew about it, and even now, after today the Internet Protest Black Out, I still encountered people who had no clue what was going on. My parents, who actively keep up on current events had only heard about this, and when I expressed my feelings towards this they did not understand why I am so upset and passionate about this. They don’t see it as that much of a big deal, because they aren’t seeing the bigger picture because they don’t’ know enough to see it! And that’s exactly what the government wants I’m assuming. So, if you haven’t already, please head on over to Google and Sign there Petition HERE.
Enough of that now and onto the good stuff! I’m just gonna get right into it. I did my first suspension this weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada! It was a total blast, 4pt Knee. The pictures will be at the bottom. Andrew S. of the Swing Shift Sideshow in Vegas and Shane von Ranniger facilitated this suspension for me and did a great job. It was in the back yard of a Townhouse, but it was actually perfect. It felt very personal, and andrew was very comforting and welcoming. The pain was no where near as bad as I was anticipating. I was up for about 20 minutes, and then laid down on a bed of nails as well which I feel was more painful than hanging! I could talk for hours though. And I wanna make this quick as usual, lol
Along with my suspension in Vegas I got to see my sister, nephews, and brother-in-law for the first time in a little over five years! Was so nice to see them all again, the boys have grown quite a bit. mason didn’t seem to remember me though, Justin did though. :) It was a great visit and I stayed with them the entire time. I also got to meet up with my friend Alex who I met in Munich this summer so that was pretty sweet.
That’s all, going to go and do some studying for Python, trying to learn the language.
