Smells Like...Nevermind →
Great little article about how Nirvana isn’t the groundbreaking band you think they were.
Anonymous asked: So Mr. Gus. Assumingly the same Gus that I buy pizza from. First, your pizza is fantastic but please deliver faster. Second, i really dug your article about friendship. Its almost always been a failed endevour more me, and I have found it hard to find people that are like minded to me. It seems to me that my interests are far to varried and specialized that I cannot find people who I can make...
Wets Be Fwiends!
Making and keeping friends has always been a weird thing for me. I’m not sure if its like this for anyone else, but I’ll tell you how it is for me. Making new friends is a bit of a bitch. Think for a second: where did you make the most friends? Chances are, you said “at school”. Making friends at school was always a breeze. It was easy to do because of how structured...
ARTIST: The John Butler Trio ALBUM: Sunrise Over Sea GENRE: Acoustic Rock WHY YOU’D LIKE IT: An Australian guitarist and songwriter, John Butler is an absolute genius. His mastery of the guitar is phenomenal, especially on this album. His songs are very folksy with an old-timey feel, and his lyrics are very poetic. Sunrise Over Sea was The John Butler Trios third studio album. Girls...
With all the hype re: the 20th Anniversary of “Nevermind,” lemmy...– Paul Marshall
For The Ladies...
OMG, Shoes! One thing that we can all agree on is that women love shoes. They love buying them, wearing them, shopping for them, looking at them online and in magazines, admiring them on their friends, etc. Its a rather disturbing fascination, but its one we’ve all come to openly accept. Women love shoes, the same way that men love guns and cars and boobs. That’s just the way it...
See that blue button on the top that says “Ask Gus!!”? Guess what? You can click it, and ask me a question! Isn’t that fabulous? You can ask me anything, like “Whats that song that goes ‘da da, da-da da-da-da, da da-da-da-da’?”, or “Look at my toe nail; do you think its ringworm or lead poisoning?”. Really, ask me anything. ...
ARTIST: T. Rex ALBUM: The Slider GENRE: Glam Rock WHY YOU’D LIKE IT: Well, T. Rex has a sort of personal significance for me, which I’ll probably write about some other time. But, yeah, T. Rex…. Rarely does an artist or band touch me in such an unexpected way that I feel frightened and euphoric just by listening to them. If all you know about T. Rex is “Bang A...
Is Anybody Reading This?
If there’s one huge obstacle that I must learn to overcome, its my fear of self-promotion. Ever since I was a child, I would always draw pictures and write poems and win awards at school for my talents. However, I never showed my folks any of these things because I was modest. My sister, on the other hand, would always show mom and dad everything she did in school with great pride. Her...
I don’t have that much time to really sit down and write right now. I promise I’ll do some writing soon. Because its either you wait and I write some good stuff, or i could post something every 5 minutes and it’ll all be crap. I don’t wanna do that; that’s what Facebook is for. ~G.

Just A Thought
I was thinking today…. When the hell did being a “pimp” become a good thing? Last I checked, the only place where pimps are rich, stylin’, suave and charming is on television. Have you ever seen an actual pimp? Where I come from, pimps are homeless crackhead assholes who hang out in the parking lot of McDonald’s at 3 a.m. wearing sweat pants and ratty sneakers. ...

For The Ladies...
For The Ladies… will also be a recurring theme here. Its aimed towards female readers, but males can read them too, assuming they can read. Faking It I’ve always laughed at the idea of women faking orgasms during sex. I know that most, if not all, women have at one point or another faked it. But there are women who fake it more often than others, which makes me think: YOU’RE...
Anonymous asked: so like what kind of stuf can people ask you? like about relationships and things like that?
Who The Fuck Is Gus?
Well, that’s a rather strange question to ask of anybody, but I think I should make some sort of proper introduction so that you know a little more about exactly what you are reading. Gus, of course, is not my real name, but that shouldn’t really matter. I don’t want to believe that you’d trust me any more or any less if my name was John, Jimbo, or Jebediah. I am a male...
CDs Nutz will be a recurring thing on here. Its where I recommend new and old music to you. ARTIST: Arcturus ALBUM: Sideshow Symphonies. GENRE: Hmmm… Operatic metal? Sure. WHY YOU’D LIKE IT: Well, its a bit over-the-top. Arcturus was a side project of Simen Hestnæs (a.k.a ICS Vortex from Dimmu Borgir) which allowed him to showcase his opera style vocals. Plus, Sideshow...
Welcome, stranger! My name is, uh, well, you can call me Gus. This blog has been created, after much hesitation, with the purpose of enriching your lives through heavy handed advice and preachy soliloquies. I will be discussing many topics, such as blunt perspectives on basic day-to-day dilemmas, tackling problems that on the surface seem overwhelming but are in fact petty and childish, and...
