Ok. I am going to do this post as quickly as I can with absolutely no research. There should be a way I could reason this post into a message about recovery. Let’s just say I know from memory that Shia LaBeouf has been in the news a couple of times over the last few years for odd behavior, most likely brought on by too much alcohol. I think he sought out professional help of some sort, but I am not going to find out for sure right now. I also think he might be doing ok, because he is co-starring next to Brad Pitt in a movie that sits in the poll position at the box office; number 1 this last weekend. I’ll let you educate yourself on his journey of recovery or lack thereof.
You must watch this video to the end. It may be the strangest I have ever posted. It takes great effort to make something so… I do not even know how to describe it. Is Shia LeBeouf just crazy, or crazy like a fox. This will probably not answer that question, but it will make you think about it. Regardless, if the video makes the talk shows or entertainment news; mention of his issues with abuse will probably come up. I hope he is getting better, if indeed that was his problem. I root for Shia LeBeouf, and you should too. He’s probably just one of us.
We have all seen riots related to sporting events, and they are usually fueled by a big win, or loss; and of course alcohol. Take away the emotions of the win or loss and you would think it would nullify the added ingredient of alcohol; but you would be wrong. All it really takes is alcohol. Copious amounts alcohol can and did turn what would ordinarily be an innocent family oriented pumpkin festival into a town wide emergency; complete with overturned cars, burning dumpsters, police in large numbers wearing SWAT gear, tear gas, and bros fighting bros. This all went down over the weekend. Here it’s still daylight and the mayhem is just ramping up:
Then it got dark, and things got worst. The more hours the partying went on, the more the alcohol flowed, and the more the normally mild-mannered campus of quaint Keene College started to look like a scene from The Purge 2, and the students, escapees from Arkham Asylum.
In the aftermath of the next day, hundreds of shamed Keene students helped clean up the carnage, while the campus authorities promise a thorough investigation and the possible expulsion of any students deemed unworthy of the school. But; and it’s a mighty big but, will they address the real problem.

It’s not even close to Christmas, but that doesn’t keep drunk zombie Santa from making the rounds. As expected this one involves college students and bars, many many bars.
An intoxicated stranger dressed as a zombie Santa Claus terrified two teenagers when he entered their St. Paul home over the weekend.
A 14-year-old boy fled from the Macalester-Groveland house to get help and his 16-year-old sister locked herself in a bathroom, said a neighbor, Margaret Marrinan, who is also a Ramsey County judge. “This guy ought to be examining his conscience … for what he did to those kids,” she said. The children were scared but are fine now, Tom Sullivan, their father, said Monday. “The police did a nice job of calming them down and explaining the individual meant no harm,” he said. “Fortunately, it had a happy ending, and no one will ever think of Santa the same way. If you’re going to have a break-in, this is the best kind — someone who means no harm and was looking for a place to sleep.”
Police cited a man who is a University of St. Thomas senior for trespassing. The university is about six blocks from the site of Saturday’s incident. A police report didn’t say where the man was coming from. A Zombie Pub Crawl started in Minneapolis at 4 p.m. that day. Saturday was also homecoming at St. Thomas, though there was no zombie theme, a university spokesman said. Officers were called to a home in the area of Sargent and Cretin avenues at 9:45 p.m. Saturday. They were told that a man had entered the residence wearing a Santa suit and looking like a zombie, said Sgt. Paul Paulos, a St. Paul police spokesman.
The man had vomited and didn’t know where he was when police woke him up, Paulos said. Police cited Brock Quinn Johnson of Roseville for trespassing and took him to the detoxification center, Paulos said. Johnson declined to comment Monday.
