What you’re looking at is a candid photo of your humble editor taken as the sun rose this morning over my current location. I fell in with a bad crowd last night. They made me stay up really late and forced all manner of intoxicants into me. I told them nothing.
Rather than seek hospital care after I escaped my captors, I had to be at a secret location early this morning where I was expected to engage in the work for which I’m paid. I am now doing things that resemble work, but actually consist of me writing this brief note to you.
The one thing I’ve been unable to do, either last night or this morning, is write a post for NCS. Later in the day, I plan to do that. For now, I must return to the task of appearing to work and moaning softly. Adios.
three words; five hour energy 🙂
What happens when you’re head is hammering so hard and you’re so sleep deprived that you can’t unscrew the bottle cap?
sounds serious, find a trusted colleague and have them prepare my personal morning-after-a-show breakfast; one bottle of 5 Hour Energy, one can of Monster Energy Drink, one 16 ounce cup of coffee. after consuming all three you’ll either be better or dead.
I’m getting nauseous just thinking about that. Correction: more nauseous.
ok, plan B: sleep. you’ve earned it 🙂
I wish I could, but I have more work-related “socializing” planned for tonight. I’ll be having the hair of the dog instead of sleep.
By the looks of that pic, it couldn’t have been THAT bad. You still managed some morning wood at least.
I don’t know how old you are, Islander, but let me tell you this: Once you hit 40 (like yours truly), pretty much every morning looks like that.
I left 40 in the rearview mirror a while back, and yeah, I do find that a shitload of mornings seem to begin this way.
Cool, I always thought you were in the 35- 40 range. Glad to know I wasn’t that far off.
That’s awesome, it gives me a lot of hope for the future.
Metal has no age (48 myself).
I am 31 and a fairly new “serious” metal fan. Long time kinda fan if that makes any sense.
So you DO have a head.
That’s not my head. Must have been a rough night for at least one other person besides me. Nice to wake up to some company though.
Yeah, wakin up to some head is a good way to wake up.
Waking up with a head is a good way to wake up. But you wouldn’t know anything about that, would ya’ punk? Hunh? Would’ja?
It’s cool man, given the amount of time and energy you and the other staffers give to this site a day or two without posts is fine.
Bless you for saying that. It still bugs me on days like this when I fall down on the job (so to speak).
