Diabolical Fun far

Well as I sit here in Lincoln, Nebraska waiting for tonight's show. I figured I might as well give some insight as to how shit's been going. Touring first off is very humbling. You learn fast that no one is undefeated. Athens, and Traverse City were good shows, the energy from the crowd was great. Bloomington, and Lawrence werent too great at all. But, regardless we have been selling merch so its all good. Illogic and Manwell are professionals to the highest degree. Regardless of the size of the crowd they rock like its sold out. Which I also try and do myself. So, thats that.
Last night I saw a girl dancing on a wooden floor that was dirty as hell at this bar, with no shoes on. I dont know what the hell would possess someone to do that, but she did. But, thats really about all I got at the moment. I'll keep filling in as it goes.

Diabolical Fun (rmx) Illogic, Slug, Zerostar, and Aesop Rock

Columbus, OH — Upon the official release of his Diabolical Fun album on March 24, Illogic set his sights on lining up a tour that would reach the fans who have supported him on the journey of creating his fifth full-length project. The Diabolical Fun Tour will kick off on April 16 in Athens, Ohio, and will commence through May 17 as Illogic hits cities throughout Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona.Graciously received by critics, Diabolical Fun is Illogic’s first full body of work in nearly five years. The songs showcase his range of songwriting, from harder lyrical tracks like “Let’s Go” to more sentimental poetry like “I Know You.” To celebrate the tour, Illogic went back into the studio to record the remix for the title track “Diabolical Fun” with Slug of Atmosphere, Aesop Rock of Definitive Jux and Zerostar of Weightless Recordings.

Zerostar and DJ Manwell will perform alongside Illogic throughout The Diabolical Fun Tour. Meanwhile, producer/emcee Ill Poetic, who also produced the entire Diabolical Fun album, will be off on his own Re:Definition Tour with Zone and DJ Rare Groove. The Diabolical Fun Tour and Re:Definition Tour will meet up for one dynamic night on May 1 at Red’s Bar in Sioux City, Iowa.

As the Diabolical Fun Tour progresses, more dates in new cities may be added. For now, Illogic is preparing for the exciting weeks ahead. “I’ve never been more excited to go on tour then I am for this one,” he says. “I look forward to getting face to face with the fans once again. It’s been way too long! The making of Diabolical Fun as an album was an amazing experience, and I excited to bring the music to life on stage.”

Adults are liars

I've come to the realization that adults are full of shit. I mean remember being a kid all on your "I cant wait to be an adult," shit? What did adults say? You shouldn't be in a rush to grow up years go by fast. Yeah, all that's true, but they didn't' bother to tell you how EVERYTHING costs money! All that fucking fun they were having wasn't free! But, you didn't know that shit, you just thought damn I cant wait to wyle out and do adult shit like...fucking. I mean let's face it even at 18-22 range you're still basically on some kid shit.
I imagine it has to be even worse for a woman, cause once you start hitting them late 20's, the clock is ticking. I know women are having kids later and later, but who the hell wants to be like 70 with a 10 yr old? So, then as a woman maybe you start approaching relationships much differently than you did in the earlier years. (all of this is assuming that you would want kids in the first place of course) If you really think about it the only thing adults can do that kids cant are the following. You can stay up as long as you fucking want. Whatever that's worth. Hell, anyone with a 9-5 will tell you that's not even really true. You can drink. Well, most of us as kids just drank dumb amounts of soda anyway so we were hopped up on caffeine. Adults drink alcohol and red bulls. Advantage kids, at least no hangover involved in coca cola. You can fuck without fear of getting in trouble. And well I think we all know as adults THAT SHIT AIN'T TRUE. Think about it like this. Would you rather be caught having sex with your 15 yr old g/f by your parents, OR get caught cheating on your wife or g/f? I rest my case.
In short being an adult is over rated..
