First human to journey into outer space.

Fifty years ago cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s Vostok spacecraft blasted off from the steppes of Soviet Kazakhstan and into the history books. 

Gagarin became an international celebrity, and was awarded many medals and honours, including Hero of the Soviet Union, the nation’s highest honour. Vostok 1 marked his only spaceflight, but he served as backup crew to the Soyuz 1 mission (which ended in a fatal crash). Gagarin later became deputy training director of the Cosmonaut Training Centre outside Moscow, which was later named after him. Gagarin died in 1968 when a MiG 15 training jet he was piloting crashed.

I don’t see a problem here at all. He’s gonna have to start drinking sooner or later.

Applebee’s Accident of the Day: A 15-month-old boy from Metro Detroit was accidentally served alcoholic margarita mix in lieu of apple juice.

Noticing that her son was behaving oddly, the toddler’s mother Taylor Dill-Reese took baby Dominic to the hospital, where doctors recorded a blood alcohol level of .10.

The branch’s manager apologized the mix-up, and Applebee’s called the incident “unacceptable” in a statement. Police are investigating the matter, but formal charges seem unlikely.

“Oh, hi! I’m Troy McClure. You might remember me from such self-help
videos as “Smoke Yourself Thin” and “Get Confident, Stupid”.

My musical rant of the day.

Nothing more soulless, bloody repetitive, incredibly fucking boring, completely devoid of any musical depth than Tech House. The dubstep producers keep repeating the same sample in ALL of their tracks hoping their cracked out fans won’t notice. The formulaic, forgettable, disposable electro is still being pumped out at 400 tracks per hour on Beatport like poop-sludge. It’s 2011, this is your electronic ‘music’.

Party last night.

Well, I had a great time hanging out and playing music, the party was on the 5th floor of the Juliet, just an elevator ride away.  It was supposed to have been a dress up party but only a small percentage folk actually did.  Worst of all was that most of the people were still ‘partying’ from the night before and things were a tad…how you say it..sketchy.  

Needless to say we got bored, I put on a mixed CD, left my gear behind and we were back home in bed just after midnight.  Woke up at 7AM and went for a mega-Victoria-walk around town, way more fun.
