There are pics to the SSD bath salts episode on flickr, via the sevenseconddelay.blogspot.com blog perhaps? But there are no pictures of the voluntary encopresis in the stairwell. I tried, and it broke my camera.

That's a spooky photo, with Ken lurking behind those two dudes, kinda looking as though his hand is coming from the wall to rest on the guy's shoulder. Wrong skin tone though.

  Wed. 8/15/12 9:59am Cecile:

This is why I love my friend Kurt.
We were at a Zakk Wylde Black Label Whatever concert, and Zakk is spouting anti-day shit from the stage. Then he starts talking about Dimebag Daryl and how much he loved him and he didn't care what people thought or how gay it sounded. And then you heard my friend's deep voice cutting through the crowd: "GET A ROOM!"

Some people laughed. I don't know if Zakk heard, but I like to think he did.

Not a favorite at all, BSI. I am against shit on the walls.In my opinion, that's disgusting. People should go in a toilet bowl. You wouldnt believe how many people dont seem to realize this.
