Punk Rock Life

Dallas Buyers Club


Watching this today versus 2013 is mind boggling. Fuck fuck fuck pancreatic cancer.

  • Sorry lady, I prefer to die with my boots on.
  • Fuck you!
  • You don’t give AZT to a person with a broken immune system. It’s toxic.

You don’t give chemotherapy to a man with a broken immune system and tell him he’s going to die anyway. You poisoned him. Fucking doctors. Fuck fuck fuck chemotherapy.

Day 2557. Life is strange.

Fuck fuck fuck cigarettes and cocaine.

The Box Trilogy


The Box Trilogy

Posted in in spite of Johnny Rotten, in the punk ass garden, in the punk rock house, in the punk rock shed, this punk rock life, with music to boot on September 23rd, 2009

I love making these cheesy Rock and Roll boxes. I have all three lined up in the shed now. Here are some shots of them together. I forgot that I had not finished the bottom of the first toolbox (far right) but I did finish the bottom of the little box. Also I cant find the little little box that goes inside the first box. Its around here somewhere. I will finish the bottom of the box this weekend.
The Box Trilogy

All boxes are together at last. I have 2 things to do to make them complete. Finish bottom of first box and get new knobs for coffin box.

The Boxes /

Middle Box / The Coffin Box

Right Box / The Rock and Roll Box

Left Box / The Skull Box

The Coffin Box is finished with skulls, anarchy symbols and a white vinyl Sex Pistols decal on top then. The finish began with 2 cans each of dollar store gloss black and yellow spray paint that was blotched on the close up bursts over and over and over with planned drips. Then templates for the Anarchy and Skull symbols were cut and sprayed on randomly using black/yellow and yellow black layers of at least 3 layers per skull and anarchy symbol. Then the inside was painted with foam brushes with candy apple red paint. I poured 1/4 of a quart into the bottom and smeared it around. A few ashes found its way into the tint. Once dry I poured a glob of poly into the bottom and smeared it on thick. Running thick. Once run remains on one inside panel. Then I used some oak strips of moldings to create a drawer shelf that would allow a lid to sit within the box making it lay flush with the edges. I put two handles on the top to pull the lid off and out of the box. One single sex pistols pretty vacant decal in the middle of the inside bottom.

The Skull Box was built from scratch. The finish is a shit load of paint and poly layered over the other many times. The Skulls came from Skull a Day. The handle is steering wheel knob. See and read more here.

The Rock and Roll Box was the first box. I had made this box some time ago for the utility purpose of storing some of my fave tools. I began painting it one day and couldnt stop. It has a little bit of everything, old Taxi top sign, some of our best saved up stickers from bands, tons of poly and two boxes that sit within the box.

Read blog posts I made as I made each box: Toolbox blog posts, Punk Rock Life, more of the same plus some xtras on PRL, MF Tumblr search for box and toolbox, and I know i posted all over the place and will try to link up the rest later. Or just surf to one of the many sites we try to keep up with and search box or similar. Maybe you will find a blog post gem.

See the gallery of all three boxes together here.

is the greatest life of all.

The Toolbox Project

I made this toolbox about a year ago cause I wanted to make something. I got started by planning to paint the lid candy apple red cause I found a can of  it at the old punk rock house the other day and wanted to paint something with it. So it started there and progressed into a obsessive but fun as hell project. I made two levels inside with a sliding shelf above the second level. I attached MusicFilter.com buttons, used a guitar sticker as a tempate over the lid, did a fuax graffiti finish on the underside of the lid and the side handles, put thick coats of poly on all panels, reinforced the box with countersunk wood screws, put putty over screw holes and sanded down, did a blend job with the red over the ends where the screws went, embedded a Unknown Hinson sticker on the front panel and then put more polyurethane on the exterior heavily. Now it is drying to put back together later today.

Update 5/15/09 / The finishes were put on so thick the box is not 100% dry even at 11 pm tonight. But it was dry enough for me to put most of the finishing touches on it. I embedded some guitar picks, put a hammered finish on the locking mechanism and the hinges. As I assembled it all back I was ready to take some photos. I took the first ones of the outside of the box and when I began to open the lid I knew right away I had forgotten to consider how the lid would stay open without swinging back and breaking off. First I just put some hooks back in the place I had them before only then to realized they would block the 2nd shelf taking it out and putting it back in. So I screwed a hook under the support brace for the 2nd shelf and tested it. It worked but I then gleaned a pocket watch hanging on the wall with a fairly long chain. The chain was about 1/4 of an inch too short so I began a hunt for a link of some sort and of course looked for what seemed like an hour with no luck. I finally came across a key ring which was perfect. But then the key ring caused interference with the second shelf. Fuck it for now. I’ll come up with a better idea later. The box is done and for all the damn time I spent on it I’m glad I like it. Not bad for scrap pine I found at Home Depot for $1 a board.

If I can get the video to post you can also see my other toolboxes. The pretty one on the left is one MC gave me. It is the caddy of the boxes. The one on the right is one I found on clearance at Home Depot that was once  promo for some tool company. Lots of cool storage compartments and very portable. It is the traveler. And of course the one in the middle is the workhorse. The one where things get tossed or more likely thrown in.
