Januart 1st, 2017:
- The choice of
colors for an upcoming Journey year are labored over.
I'm stuck with 'em all year. Year 18 is no different.
However each color I chose made it more and more
clear that there shouldn't be any. 2017 is an unknown
of epic proportions.
This will absolutely
be the first time in my life I've ever looked ahead at
the coming year with legitimate fear for this planet.
Not because my political party lost but because we
absolutely elected one of the scariest prospects of
all-time as the President of the United States. And
the only people that don't believe that believe
absolute FAIRY TALES about Hillary Clinton.
They believe she ran a pedophile sex ring out of a
pizza shop. That's where we are as a
- ...but if you're a
historian of ANY type, you have no choice but to
just sit back and soak it in for a minute: this is a
pretty stark indication as to where we are as a
collective group of people in this country.
I cannot overstate it enough: this has nothing
(and I do mean nothing) with political party.
That would presume Donald Trump is a Repubican, which
he most certainly isn't. He's a Carnival Barker and we
don't care. Fake news brought down a very serious
figure like Obama and turned him into a straw man
where facts didn't matter. Of course it was a perfect
storm with the DNC email leaks and the
interference from the FBI but make no mistake: 20
years ago, it never could've gotten to this point. A
generation of entertaining news got us here. Donald
Trump may not kill us all, but we all deserve to die.
Make no mistake. This experiment called humanity has
reached the point of false pride and proud ignorance
that won't easily be defeated. This is the start of it
- Trump however?
I do believe he will wear out his welcome with
the GOP in record time as the second he is
sworn in there are so many avenues in which he could
be impeached it will become overwhelming to their
ability to pass legislation. They will inevitably
start it all up. That being said? There will be
another demogogue. And another. And another. His
laissez-faire attitude about nuclear weapons is one I
don't see going away when he does. Listen, we all
kinda knew humans would do ourselves in eventually. We
just never thought we'd see the beginning of the
descent so clearly. Hell it's what I said in my "Back
in Time" documentary clip nearly two years ago:
I was guessing
500 years in the future, not 22 months later. Funny,
the director is a Trump voter! LOL. Not because he's
some massive asshole, he just really doesn't give a
fuck and doesn't think it matters. I guess we'll
find out, right? Fuck.
- As far ME? The
Journey? GolfKon? All that? My contract is up in May
with Collins Avenue. If I feel particularly
pro-active I will try to find some funding for doing
the interview show on my own. I see no real way
to convince networks this works. I find it crazy
I can convince celebrities to come to my backyard
for FREE with NO VIEWS because they believe
in the concept, yet no one will put it on TV? I still
think it's timing and the right guest, etc. As
I keep saying and believe
wholeheartedly: there is digestable, lucrative
media in some form in my backyard. Just takes the
right people to figure it out. Now that this fucking
paragraph is over? Ya wanna know what I literally
CANNOT stop thinking about??!?!
- The Delorean
modification. Ho, ly, shit. This is really happening.
The deposit on the shipping truck is down, we've
picked the motor and transmission (2013 LS3 Corvette
V8 and Porsche Trans) and tomorrow a good $6k is
thrown into this whole thing. This is happening. In
fact, in mid-to late Februaray I'm flying the entire
family back to Columbus to finish up work on the car
and then do a few gigs and show my friends and family
the new 600 hp beast. We're making the fastest
Delorean on the planet and I'm excited to
FINALLY HAVE A CAR that I'm not
embarrassed to drive. My old line was always "I feel
like I'm bringing a light saber to a gun show" and
I WAS. I hated that everyone crowded around my
car when it was an absolute piece of shit. Now? It
will blow people away. Hardly a stock car around that
could beat it and it's a time machine to boot? We're
gonna get Kenny a BUNCH of press as well as
RentTheDelorean.com. Throw in the finished virtual
reality ride? Wow. The future 5-10 years is bright for
the business. It all but died in July of last year
($10k booked after July) and this will bump it up for
a loooooong time to come. And of course, we're
replacing everything with parts that are easily found
and can keep the car running in top condition for
- OH AND I GET TO
GO BACK TO OHIO WITH MY CAR!!!
Man that's gonna be awesome. Just, wow. Oh and far
down on the list? I finally actually get a mid-life
crisis car. LOL. Everyone used to call the time
machine that and, well, how could I argue when it's a
fricken time machine but it was business. This is
still a business decision but for the first time ever?
It will be fun to drive. It has NEVER been fun to
drive. It has been scary, stressful - just awful. Why?
BECAUSE it's SO SLOW you're at the MERCY of every
idiot around you. Not getting in an accident has
nothing to do with you and everything to do with
whether the FUCKTARD next to you can videotape
you and drive without hitting someone. Now? I can get
out of the way. I can pull out of danger.
I can, well, fucking drive. Yes I will take
advantage of the speed a little and have fun,
but in the end this is still a MUSEUM and speeding is
simply dangerous. But far too often my roughly 100hp
car was a death trap. Never, ever, ever again. Cannot
tell you how thrilled I am about
- And to work with
Kenny! And to help Kenny! Man - it's like I've added
an entirely new person to my life that I never had
anything in common with before. How killer is that?
Wow. Just... too excited.
- So, provided we
don't blow up - 2017 should be awesome. Hey
politicians or military or whothefuckever?! Why don't
you grow some nuts and ovum and take care of this guy?
Give us at least one more generation of status quo
before we start a nuclear world war, mmmmmmmk? If he
gives the orders? HANDLE THE TRUTH and
do the right thing, ok? Fuck man. Why does this even
have to be typed.
