The Continuing Saga of Chocodiles
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll remember me lamenting the unavailability of my favorite snack cake, Chocodiles. I contacted Hostess and this is the response they sent: March 30, 2011 Dear Mr. Chris Fullerton , Thank you for contacting us concerning our Hostess Chocodiles. Unfortunately our Hostess Chocodiles are only distributed in the state of California. We have forwarded...
Let’s face it, the Chocodile is the perfect snack food. If I believed in the whole “Garden of Eden” scenario, it would be contingent on the forbidden fruit actually being a chocolate covered Twinkie. The problem is I can no longer buy them. There was a Hostess outlet store in Fayetteville when I was in college that sold them, but I honestly haven’t seen them in a store in...

Follow the link and listen to some songs, then give’em 5 stars. Great live band. And Luke is cool as shit, even though he did try to tell me Whiskeytown was doing a reunion show. Actually, that rumor was pretty fun, so I hold no grudge.
It's not a reoccurring dream
because it’s not the same dream happening again, but the last couple of days, I’ve been having what I guess I’ll call a “serial dream.” The same people are in it, same themes. There’s a gang, who I believe are Mexican, and I think this is because I’ve been watching Weeds every day since I’ve been home, and I’m at war with them. The last two...

You know how you know when you've made it?
It’s that moment when you realize you could shit gold coins and give them to the homeless and someone would still find a reason to hate you. You know what you should do at that moment? Ask the waitress for some fresh bottles of Grey Goose and make a toast to the petty fuckers who wish they were where you are so badly they can taste it.
All the little creepers come creepin' around.
I feel like I should give a legit recap of yesterday cause it was the best day, so far. I started out at 512 to see Mean Creek with Adam. You really have to spend a day with him to fully appreciate A. what he goes through out in public and B. that his the most gracious person you will ever meet. Anyway, first set of the day and Mean Creek kicked our asses. I am not exagerrating when I say that at...
SXSW Day...I don't even fucking know.
I can’t put it into words. It feels like 3 days in one. Friends. Food. Booze. Music. I have a million stories. I’ll have to tell them over time. Right now it’s 5am and I need to crash. Because we’re doing it again tomorrow. Today. Whatever.

SXSW Day 3
Called it an early night. Home by 11pm. But it’s been a long day. I got downtown just before noon for the American Songwriters party. Some great bands there including The Roman Rye and Jessica Lee Mayfield. Also, there was free Sweet Tea Bourbon and such. I was there for an hour or so when Ryan, Frank, Shawn (or Sean), Adam, his parents, and manager, (I think) Jessica, showed up. It was...
SXSW Day 2
I went down to Esther’s Follies and caught the taping of Marc Maron’s podcast “WTF” and let me tell you, that dude is fucking hilarious. He had a great assortment of comics on as guests, too. When that was over, I met up with Kasey Anderson and we just chilled at Logan’s and talked and his friend Kristen (I think) came by and she’s cool as fuck. We just swapped...
Who deserves to have a sandwich named after them?
I think I do. Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.
do you have a twitter account?
Um, yes. @electricpencils Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.
SXSW: Day One
It’s a seven hour drive for me to get to Austin. Google Maps says it takes almost 8 1/2 hours. I WIN! I rolled into town just as Eric was about to head out to see WIN WIN down at the Paramount. He invited me along to try and get a ticket (he’s got a film pass) to see with him. Luckily, it was a Monday, so no problem getting in. The film was fantastic. I love Paul Giamatti...
SXSW: The Night Before
I went to Walmart tonight to pick up a few last minute things for my trip, including some bathroom stuff and duffle bag. It’s a college town and it’s Spring break, so the cashier said, “Where are you heading for Spring break?” I politely replied that I’m much too old for Spring break, but it is my vacation and I’m heading to Austin for SXSW. (Please note I said...

fyeahcountingcrows: I guess this is what Adam does in his free time. I laughed. Not intended for our younger followers, but I’m sure that won’t stop you. The Adventures of Broccoli Man! Episode 1: The Fucking Menace. My pal Adam put this together. If you don’t giggle like a 14 year-old boy watching this, I’m not sure why you’re following me.
Anything fun happening Monday night at SXSW?
Or should I just relax for the evening? I don’t have a good gameplan. Anyone know of something fun, that doesn’t require a badge, for Monday evening or Tuesday?
Who is Electric Pencils?
Someone just found my blog by Googling that question. Sorry, kids. Google don’t know.

Something in the air today
I have a habit of not opening my mail, unless it’s from Netflix, so today before work I realized I had an envelope on my bedside table from Worker’s Comp. I assumed it was more crap, but I opened it to find a check for $108. I left work early because my restrictions limit what I can do and after almost 4 hours, there was just nothing to keep me busy with. So, I took $20 to the casino...
