Parking Neighbors

Everytime I come home and try to park in front of our house, our new Mexican neighbors are parked there. They're usually hanging around leaning on the cars so they instantly move, but its just funny that its every time.

Big F-ing TV

Its here. Spud and I were able to be home for its delivery. Oh my dear lord is this a big tv. Its a 16:9 screen so we spent all evening figuring out how to watch regular 3:4 television on it. First thing we settle down to watch was Lord of the Rings. Its a very complicated matter but it looks great.

Tommy - The Who (the whole album, actually)

I got a bed!

In addition to a big f-ing tv, Juston got a rather large bed. So I got his old bed frame. For the first time in quite a while I'm sleeping with my bedframe off the floor. Its rather nice.

Dark Cold Day

Its the hottest day this year. So we countered it at work by turning down the lights and turning up the AC. The only reason we can do this is because Dacia is gone. For some unknown reason she hates dark and cold.


I ran out of room here on the news page so I started puting up an archive to free up some of this space.

No More...

Gibsoncrash and I went to the Mall for lunch. While there I checked Players one last time. Again she wasn't there. This is one week. I think its time to close the case. She's all yours Jez.

Big F-ing TV

Greg, Spud and I got rid of the entertainment center tonight to make room for the big f-ing tv that comes tomorrow! Throwing away that mother was easier and alot more fun that I imagined it would be.

Cowboy Bebop OST2
Got it in the mail today. Yoko Kanno is an amazing musician- becoming one of my favorites. The music is what makes this show so cool.
Where is Clea?!?!
Tomorrow is one week since we were served by her at Players. I haven't seen her since then. We ate there tonight (Spud, Greg, and I) with the hopes of asking her for Saturday.

I spent 8 and a half hours today in the hellish hot weather. I was not happy about it. Gregory, Curtis, GibsonCrash and I were shooting Bloomington Athletic Association Baseball which is tons of little boys playing in a pretty well organized baseball tournament. Its a feeling of panic - every instinct in my body is screaming "GET OUT OF THE SUN" but I can't. I have to stand behind that camera, directly under the sun, inning after inning. Thank God the last series of games were cancelled because the storms I had prayed for finnally arrived.
When I got home I was spent. I went to bed at 9pm. Altering my sleeping pattern horribly. Thats ok.
Song of the Day
Keep them Separated - can't remember what that band is called, but the song came up because I suggested we keep the 4 cameras and their gear separate from each other. D'oh, I just remembered - Offspring

I don't think she works at Players anymore. I'll try again on Tuesday (one week from the first encounter) and if she isn't there- case closed.
It was one of those times where you formulate the plan, proceed and execute all without a hitch.
a. formulate: find Gorky Park cd used.
b. proceed: convince Greg to drive to Disc World
c. execute: it just so happened to be there for $5.99!

Juston, Spud and I went on an adventure. First we went to the library to find some things. We almost didn't make it in, because of some old dude wondering around the entrance. This guy smelled so bad you almost had to push the oder aside to get by him. We finally broke through and did our things. Later I saw him on the 'non-fiction' level sleeping away. The only reason I noticed him was I could smell he was near.
Big F-ing TV
Then we went to Best Buy to buy a big TV. Juston's looking at a huge mama. We found out it may be some time before we walk out of there with one.
Austin Powers
What a great movie. I almost couldn't handle the first 10 minutes. Laughed my ass off.

Today I edited with a guy who is doing a show about travel. He was editing a bunch of footage he took from Russia. It was pretty cool to see Russia from a laymans point of view. He said that country has the most beautiful women in the world.

Clea DuVall
I told LordBobo and Spud that I was thinking about goint back to Players today to ask her for her number. So I did. The only thing I found out is that she didn't work tonight. At least she doesn't work at Players tonight.
Song of the Day
Arms Wide Open - Creed (I think LordBobo has this song in his car on about 4 different tapes)

LordBobo and I went Players at the Mall of America (there it is again) for a meal suggested by Spud (as he sat on the couch, healing). We were served by someone who looked like Clea DuVall (but I'm the only one who knows who that is). She said I looked like Oliver Platt and I do. After a very satisfying meal we went to my house to watch...
Bottle Rocket
Before Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore, there was Bottle Rocket. This was the first movie directed by Wes Anderson. If you haven't seen it and you enjoyed the other two, watch it.

Perfect Day
The weather was perfect today. Clear with some clouds. highs in the 70s low in the 60s. breezy. You seriously cannot ask for better weather than that.

It was raining on my way home from Rent. I love my new tires.
Saw Rent at the Ordway Theatre with the Aniimae art girls. What a great show. The music alone is something I could listen to like a regular album, I know Amy has a copy, lets see if she burns me one. The plot itself is a bit of a tragedy with themes focusing on living in the moment. Rent made me want to see theatre more often. I recommend it.
Rogue Video Production
I rode around in the back of a pickup truck video taping all around the Mall of America this morning at around 6am. What a way to start the day, eh!?

New Tires
It is amazing how much smoother my Jeep rides with new tires.

Nice Little Con-Lady
I was told by a little old lady that if I handed her a bill larger than $1.oo and made a wish, I would have good luck and God would bless me. I asked her how that was possible. A wish, good luck, and a blessing from God all seem to contradict each other. She just said that God would bless me and she took off (without my money ^_^).
Secret Project
Today I met with Jiminy T Peters and his associate to discuss a giant (and right now- secret) project that involves the Mall of America. We had lunch just across the street at Thank God Its Fridays. It felt like scoping out a bank robbery. More on that secret project when it becomes public. ^_^ Have you noticed that half of these news articles somehow involve the Mall!?!?

Brake Light Reversed
As a result of Spud's accident, his car was left at the Mall parking lot last night and all today. Greg and I embarked on a mission to recover his car for him so it wouldn't get towed for being there too long or something. We took my jeep so Greg would drive Spud's car home and park in the garage waiting for his recovery. So after we found it, I followed Greg home. This is when I noticed the impossible. The tail-lights came on as soon as Greg turned on the head-lights, nothing strange there. But as soon as Greg stepped on the brakes... the small tail-light furthest to the right went out. When Greg let off the break, it came back on! How the heck does that happen?!?!? Not a very exciting day if this is the news item i post, huh.

Spud Broke
Last night (the 16th) I watched my roommate, Spud, walk up the stairs as he said goodnight. This happens almost every night. I get home tonight and he is sprawled out all over the love seat in an awful shape. His right foot is all bandaged up. His right wrist is in a cast, his chest has been patched together, he's mumbling on powerful pain killers- what the hell happened today!?!?! From what I gather, he was moving some stuff around a storage area at his work, J-Crew at the Mall of America, and the platform he was on broke to a 15 to 20 foot fall. Shut down 25% of the mall. Thank God he's alive.

Fight Club Author
The variety show, Plugged with James Touchi-Peters, featured author Chuck Palahniuk. He is on a book tour promoting his latest paperback called Choke. Chuck is as cool as you would think. It was a great interview.
New Leatherman
Over the last 4 years I have had a total of three Leatherman tools. The first one went missing at work during a production of a Magician Show sometime in 2000. hmmm... that guy was good at making things disappear. The second one was lost while video taping a Bloomington Athletic Association basketball tournament last year. Kids everywhere. Today I bought myself a new Leatherman Wave. Lets see how long this one will survive.

Cowboy Bebop Session 4
Splurged and picked up the next Cowboy Bebop DVD. Bebop is one of the coolest anime to come out in the last 10 years in America.
