Bow your heads!    2004-09-27 11:31:16 ET
Heh, just thought I would place a tagline up there that would get your attentions, all should bow at the altar of Ministry! It has been a rather eventful few days. First off, on Wednesday, I went to the Ministry show, it was packed, there were more people than I would have expected since they were playing two more shows up in West Hollywood at the end of the week. I had to go alone, sigh, since my friend Jeff cancelled on me, I do believe I mentioned this in a former entry, but at least I wound up meeting up with some friends so that softened my annoyance at that unfortunate situation, shows are better watched when you are accompanied by someone you know. Hanzel und Gretyl opened and let me just say this, they were awesome! They blew everyone away with how good they were, fabulous live, great stage show, plus, Loopy, the guitarist, was wearing combat boots, lederhosen, and a WW1 German Spike Helmet, it is like my dreams, except better! Their set however, was way too short, I would love to have the oppurtunity to see them headline their own show, that would be quite the treat.
Than the second act was My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. I was expecting a show at least near the level of Hanzel und Gretyl since TKK had a longer set to work with but I was disappointed. I am not quite sure why, some of it had to do with the fact that on that particular night, they seemed a bit lackluster, and the rest was simply based on the fact that while I like TKK, I own a couple of their cds, I do not love them, certainly not to the extent that I admire HUG and Ministry. I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt for the time being, perhaps when I see them again, they will be better. Heh, I might have just been comparing them to Hanzel und Gretyl though, who were just so great.
Last but certainly not least, came Ministry. I was expecting them to be great and of course, they were. They had a great stage show, I was very excited, this being the first time seeing my favorite band live, and I was not let down in the least bit. The first half of their show was made up of playing songs from their newest album, which was cool, especially the first song of the set, "No W." But, the second half was even better, playing their classics, some of my favorite songs, "NWO", "Just One Fix", and "Thieves." I was a tad disappointed that they did not play my two favorite songs, "Stigmata" and "So What?" but perhaps next time I see them, they will, so that does not dampen my enthusiasm. Their set did not seem particularly long, only about an hour and a half, less I think but they had great energy the entire show. The only truly annoying part was the fact that we were at stage level and the pit was right in front of us so thusly, people in the pit would bump into the guy in front of me who in turn, would bump into me, after that happened a few times, I was rather aggravated which resulted in me pushing back everytime someone pushed into me, heh, but that is what I get for being in that area eh? I left right after the show, I would have milled about but my friends were already leaving and besides, I was tired from standing up the entire time, my back was like, "Oh no, I don't think so!" So all in all, a great time was had by all.
So, on Friday night, I hung out with my friends Jeff, Duncan, and his friend Rose, and we all went to see Shaun of the Dead. Let's just say, I have not laughed like that in a long while, this was one of the most hilarious movies I have ever seen. The movie was fab, taking a rather basic horror movie formula and giving it an edge with the lovely wit the British are known for, I would like to see it again and that is rare for me. I suggest everyone who likes dark comedies or horror with humor to definitely check this movie out, you will not be disappointed. Unfortunately, the weekend took a nosedive from there since that very night after I returned home, I had a horrendus sore throat and spent all day Saturday in bed, drinking nothing but Propel Fitness Water, being miserable and wishing death upon all. I was supposed to work that day but had to call in, I felt so awful about that, it sounds silly, I know, I am chalking most of that up to being ill though. I did go to work the next day, though I was rather drained and tired, but I had said the prior day that I would come in, so I managed to keep my promise. Sigh, and I have to work today, so, yeah, I do not get a break, retail, she is a harsh mistress indeed!
And lastly, I just spent $337 on two items, hmm, does a pair of shoes count as one item or two, I am going with one for now. I finally purchased my first pair of New Rocks, I am quite excited at the prospect of receiving them, I am sure they will be spiffy! I also purchased a dress from , one of their lovely Cyber_Tek dresses, that cost me $95.00, plus shipping, which came out to $103. Yes, yes, I know, I am a bit obsessed with clothing and shoes but I am not the only one cursed with this affliction! Plus, I still have plenty of money leftover, I made almost $180 off six items I posted on Ebay so that certainly helped. So, yea Ebay, yea spending money! ^_^

 The Wisdom of the Magic Cactus!    2004-09-24 23:51:24 ET
I asked the magic cactus,
What is the mind, is it just a system of impulses or is it something more spiritual?
You should spend less time with philosophical introspection and more time with a moose and a jar of marmalade.

All I have to say is, bravo magic cactus, bravo. To ask the Magic Cactus your own question, go here:
A real update is coming soon, I swear! ^_^

 Urge to kill...rising!    2004-09-17 23:20:19 ET
Sigh, I am annoyed today. For one, the last few days, my Hotmail decided that it was no longer going to cooperate with me, folded it's arms, and said no more! Needless to say, I was doing my best to be patient and understanding with it. ::Flashes back to a few days ago with Divine Decay hurling various colorful metaphors at the computer:: Um, okay, so I did not exactly hold my composure, I usually am the very picture of calm indifference but not lately. Plus, for reasons unbeknowst to me at the time, one of my auctions was taken down on Ebay. Only when we called and complained to MSN did our Hotmail finally decided that it would stop being a bastard and allow us to check it. I than was finally able to check my email and got a few rather incensing messages. For one, I found out my auction was taken down simply because I had used "Hot Topic" in it's description, and there was some rule/regulation on Ebay forbidding the use of a company name in your item's description, I was not even aware of this rule! And than, more happiness to follow, the New Rocks I ordered, well, it took them a bloody week almost to get back to me just to tell me that they did not have that particular boot in my size! ::Eyebrow twitches:: I suppose I can find one positive in that now I have money again when before I did not, I still plan to buy a pair, perhaps when I get paid next week, after the Ministry show. Speaking of which, the friend that I was supposed to go with is now probably not going to be able to attend with me, because of school of all things, school, Ministry is more important than school, I am sure everyone here will agree with me! Besides, it is only one damn night, it is not going to kill him, well, unless it does, and I am sure someone would make that out to be my fault somehow! ~_^ So, yeah, lots of irrtating situations abounds with Divine Decay as of late. I do have a final question to end this entry of unpleasantness, does anyone know of an American online store that sells a wide variety of New Rocks besides Vixens and Angels, as much as I want a pair, I do not want to pay the ridiculous overseas shipping prices for which amount to rather heavy boots. Thank you all. I hope reading about my problems has provided you with some entertainment.::Bows::

 Hey look, stuff!    2004-09-15 23:52:56 ET
So, a few days ago, I posted some more auctions on ebay, any case any of you folks are interested,here is a page of all the items I am selling right now:
I have come to the conclusion that I simply have too much stuff and need to rid myself of it at throughly discounted prices. Hopefully, the money I make from these auctions will be enough to cover the cost of the dress I want, from the Lip Service "At Your Service" Line of a few years ago, the military fetish themed line than I am consumed with collecting, if I get that dress, I will only need two more, highly difficult to find pieces from that set! Also, last week, I ordered my first pair of New Rocks, I am hoping that perhaps they will arrive in time for the Ministry, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and Hanzel und Gretyl show, falling on the 22 of September, but I do not know how likely that is. I am simply foolishly excited over the prospect of receiving them, I spent almost my entire paycheck on the boots, at least I have heard from friends and associates that they last forever....forever in shoe years being several years in people years, heh.
Another little tidbit that might be amusing to all of you, on Tuesday night, my mother and I decided that we would dye my hair, which seemed like a great idea, in theory. You see, I have never dyed my own hair before, I love my hair, I generally only entrust it to experts who work with hair for a living but being poor and my natural roots driving me mad influenced me to buy the dye and give it the old college try. Well, it seemed to go well enough at first and actually, the job itself was decent, not perfect but than it was my mother helping me, she is not learned in such things. After the process of waiting for the dye to set in, I realized, a tad too late, that it had stained the back of my neck and a bit on the left side of my face! Oh fiddlesticks, I knew I had forgotten something, to use some cold cream or vasoline on my hairline before using the dye, um, opps. So now, I have pleasant dark dye marks on the back of my neck and one slight one near my left eye, so much for that experiment eh? I have tried several different things to try to rid myself of the objectional marks but alas, nothing has worked of yet, does anyone have any advice for poor me? >_<
