It is my aim today to put that piece of sh...garbage that I called a blog post yesterday behind me. On this day in 2007 we had the Virginia Tech massacre. Seung Hui Cho killed 27 students and five faculty on the campus before taking his own life. Two days later NBC news received his taped manifesto explaining his actions. I remember getting a phone call telling me that there was a shooting in Virginia and couldn't believe the amount of casualties. I thought that it was a mistake. A truly sad day for America.
In 1942 the hallucinogenic effects of LSD were discovered by Dr. Albert Hoffman. The music of the many of my favorite bands were influenced by this drug, amongst them the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Tool, and the Doors. So in honor of this event I'm going to drop acid for the first time. Let's hope it's not a bad trip. I'll keep you informed.
In 1965 the Rolling Stones debuted with their self titled first album. Mick, you ignorant slut! Overall I like these guys and I truly believe they're going places. I could do without a few of their songs, but overall the Street Fighting Man and the Gimme Shelter will keep me firmly behind this band.
Also, in 1917 V.I. Lenin returned to Russia and became a dictator to the worlds first marxist state. If you look at his history, Lenin was a trouble maker his entire life, he was forced into exile numerous times and was all about starting revolutions everywhere he went. So it's surprising that a country famous for killing their own, that they let this most dangerous of men live to fight another day.
