So I'm up late, mixing music in my headphones, watching tv, and bein a nerd on my laptop. I'm watching "The Bodyguard" with Whitney Houston and Kevin Bacon... uh I mean Costner and I pull up the digital cable tv guide just because sometimes its fun to read the program description and browse around other channels while you watch. Guess what the description said?
1:45am - 4:45am
**1/2 '92. He falls for actress singer someone wants dead.
WOW, what a chillingly magnificent work of art. It must have been the writers first day on the job. Thats all I have to say about that. Sidenote: Did anyone else fall for Whitney Houston in that movie? And for those of you who did, are you now in the year 2007 totally humiliated for it? Just a thought. [...]
Today I realized that I like older movies way more than new ones. Sure, some new movies are super duper kick ass dot com, like Terminator 2&3, Xmen, Lord of the Rings, and ones like those.... but overall movies made in the 70's and 80's are just more "real". Not so much in their stories or acting, but just the way the film comes off. Back then special effects weren't as good, cameras were more wobbly, sound was more realistic. When I watch a new movie, its like watching a comic or my imagination, where every scene is perfect, ever move each actor makes is flawless, the film is too clear, the sound is all dubbed in a sound studio. Older movies are much closer to the kind of film I could make on my own home video camera. [...]
So here I am at 5 o'clock, watching the last few minutes of Dr Phil, minutes ago escaping a 3 hour long addiction to Law and Order. My head is freshly shaved, I just did some pull-ups for the first time in over a month (god I miss being buff!). I'm feeling pretty good.
Last night I had practice #2 in hopefully a long string of rehearsals and gigs with a drummer named Kevin. We got together through a mutual friend and so far it seems like we're going to be starting my next project together. Since it seems like Project PS is no more (at least for the time being), I'm going to start up my own solo project. Of course it'll be pretty much exactly the same thing as project ps was - all my own original songs, spiced up a little for/by the other band members, but I have a really good feeling about it. Kevin is one of the best drummers I've ever worked with, and really has his shit together. He also seems really into the project and has a mind for success. As soon as I can find a bassist to fill in the empty bottom end of our act, we plan on gigging again. That'll be so much fun. [...]
Being drunk is great because it becomes very easy to convince myself that I'm super cool. Last night at about 12:30 am, my buddy and I had a few drinks drinks together. After a couple coronas and a shot of patron I thought I was ok. A few minutes later I got totally consumed with the feeling of intoxication. I miss being drunk. I should do it more often haha. Within minutes, I had that stupid silly stretched-face smile look going on, and I literally started thinking to myself, "wow check me out... i'm so cool. I'm like, coooooool and stuff". [...]
I've been practicing Beck's "Lost cause"... can't wait to get good enough at it that I can record it on my webcam and show all of you. My voice is still kinda weak from being sick a few weeks ago, and of course totally trying to yell through it and jacking my throat up big time. Lame. Did anyone else out there think that beck was saying, "MAYBE i'm a lost cause" ? ... because thats what I thought. Apparently its "BABY i'm a lost cause". I've been humming it the wrong way for years. Weak! [...]
Whenever someone in my family is about to go to bed, I am always compelled to say, "Alright, have fun farting yourself to sleep". Especially my mom. My sister hates it, which I love, and my gramma usually just calls me a knucklehead or something. I haven't said it much to my extended family or even close friends, but I plan to.
Alright dammit I'll come clean. I'm the one who made this website. I think sometimes I'm just afraid to admit how huge of a nerd I am, and how much I love to just create things. Yeah music is my main passion, but when I'm not doing that, I always have to be making something or figuring something out. Well, that or xbox. I used to think to be a musician you had to pretend to be all about music and nothing else. Now that everything is all "reality tv" i think its alot better to show more sides of you. Well, this is my nerdy side. I have alot of those (sides), especially my lazy one.
