well if you seen a documentary on it.. it must be true.  :lol: jk! yes, and for the record, evolution is a theory.. but gravity is still a theory as well...

i havent seen a disclaimer in any of my books, i will check. thats interesting.. but there is a lot of contraversy in american public schools abouy  teaching creationism from what i understand they must also teach evolutionism..

The Doc was really cool. Had teachers from both sides of the fence defending their own beleifs. It said neither was right or wrong and pretty much said that both should be offered and let the kids decide

Also the fact that creationism got dismissed, people tried to push the "intelligent design" theory.


there's not a thing intelligent about you.. fuck that theory.

I think this guy was on it. His school attacked him hard for saying that we came from single cells etc.

Is he bald on top (I know that a dumb question, but if it is I want to get the book...I fell in love with this guy)

I loved it. He's egotistical as fuck and he's a bit of a dick against women, but he's lead a amazing life and gives a massive amount of insight into Flea and John Fruscante.

There are some classic moments. Flea and Anthony had a tandam bike that they rode around LA and one day they where smashed, riding around smoking a joint and Anthony noticed the bike starting to swerve, looked behind him and Flea had passed out.

He does have a weird writing style...but he is very honest about everything.

Nah I have't read Dylans. I want to read Motley Crues Dirt though...looks dirty

really.. wow, it sounds good. I did a painting of John, well it was actually an oil pastel.. im not really into the band, or no much about him.. but i saw and image of him in a magazine, and he looked just like my dad, and my dad wasnt around, so i used that picture of fustacante to model from...and it turned out really cool, because i added like, stars around in his hair, and this peice was apart of my art portfolio so it helped me land a scholarship in my art school... hmm. i think i will read the book after all.. but i only seen the band once..and they played with the mars volta!!  it was so fun! and of course great music...

man, don't start me on the Volta...I love them. Made me rethink my whole approach to guitar

Im going to see them in 4 days at Big Day Out.

There was a rumor going round that Jon Fruscante was showing up and dueling with Omar...but I can't really see them traveling down here for that.

i love John Fruscante! He has a really unique style...his art is fucked up too, really abstract.

reading has nothing to do with the evolutionary processes.


Of course it does...Not as in growing flippers/hair on toes etc etc.

But how are you supposed to evolve if you don't stretch the brain?



stimulate your brain with cannabinoids.
