Guess what didn't come out
yesterday? See I act as if you remember, care, and
mark it on your calendar. LOL - let me remind you that
the Ultimate Boyles MP3 disc was to come out
yesterday, Robert's 50th birthday. Well that just
didn't happen. It was a combination of things really,
but the biggest thing is I will lose money on this
disc, and putting a tremendous amount of work on the
project is hard to justify. I've also come in on a
bunch of web/video work that has taken up the majority
of my time. So everything kind of froze.
Then Stephen Barnes,
the creator of The Boyles Trivia Game,
started working on a shockwave game that
would be part of the mp3 disc. It's
AWESOME. I've sat for an hour playing it.
It's an incredibly good addition to the
disc, and is worthy of pushing back the
release date. To when? No clue. For
reminiscence sake here's the original
pretty damn cool.
The good news in all of this is
really rather unrelated. In fact, hmmm...how did I
come to this? Oh yeah, so I'm playing Ready 2 Rumble 2
(you can play as Bill & Hillary, it's funny as
HELL), and it just HITS me. A voice in my head
"BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME"
- So I am. I'm making the Parody CD, and will release
it at my show in 3 days. Yeah, I realize that doesn't
leave too much time, but deadlines make me work. I was
listening to those songs a few months ago, and damnit
- they're funny. They'll get me some exposure. I hope.
The title is "Star Wars Blew ...and other
touching parodies". If you remember I was always
concerned about making this CD because of the
legalities of it. At this point...SUE ME. I'll
give 'em away. Don't care about the money. But until
the lawsuit, I'm chargin' $10. :-) When the disc is
completed, I'll tell you all what's on it.
Hmmm, oh yeah, I said I'd
give my two cents worth on the election. (sigh) - I
just don't give a shit. I did at first. I wanted
the votes counted according to the law. But soon the
partisan sides were so ugly I couldn't speak to
anyone. I mean people won't even admit there's a
contradiction in the law. The law states you can have
a manual recount, but then doesn't allow you the time.
That's screwed up. That's why you go to the court and
have them determine what to do. Yet everyone
I talk to only states the part of the law that
helps their side. And they state it as fact, it's
their big point of contention - it's bullshit. Of
course the secretary of state stalled the counties
long enough that it didn't matter. If I cared, that
would really piss me off. But it doesn't. Everyone was
trying to find a way to get their man in, and the
republicans are gonna win. They have played the public
relations game perfectly. If you haven't paid
attention to ANYTHING, I guarantee you think Bush won,
and Gore's a sore loser. And that's what they wanted.
As someone with no party affiliation, it just makes me
laugh. Politicians are exactly the same, and just as
blind as the other. Anyone who really thinks there's a
difference between Democrats and Republicans aren't
watching very closely. The worst part, is that if the
counties were given the time to complete their hand
recount, Gore would probably win. It was at 570 votes
without Palm Beach or Miami Dade's hand
counts. Whew. That's what has scared me all along.
Bush winning on a technicality. What kills me is that
Bush is OK WITH THAT! That's sickening. That's
politics. Bush makes it sound like he's won about 6
times. Acts like it's so obvious. It's disgusting, and
if given the choice, I wanted him in! LOL - Gore
is still the slimiest person I've ever seen. I think
we're all gonna miss Clinton in about a year. I was
watching the debates in '92, goddamn he was fun to
watch. He was so intelligent, and gives you such a
good feeling. Again, I voted for Harry Brown - so
don't call me some crazy liberal. The fact of the
matter is, this country thrived in the past 8 years.
We all FELT good. It wasn't the programs or bills that
were passed, we felt good. We thought the blow-job
scandal was a joke. It was. We laughed. We wouldn't be
doing that if Gore got in. We'll laugh at Bush. That
guy is just plain goofy. Ever watch him try to make
jokes with the pres, and NOBODY laughs? Well
George, I am. I'm laughing my ASS off when that
happens. You are not funny. You are so unfunny you
make me laugh. Why couldn't Dan Quayle be your running
mate!? Anyway, all I can tell you is watch Saturday
Night Live for the next 4 years, and enjoy the ongoing
joke that is DUBYA.
Well, MOOSE is all settled in.
He's gonna have his own website pretty soon, get this:
www.shakymoose.com - It's not up yet, but that's his
domain name. His roomate Gary has epilepsy, and it's
gonna be THEIR site. Shaky Moose....heh...Gary
obviously has a great sense of humor about it. You're
scared to laugh at first, but he always does. By the
way, I've beaten Marty 40 straight times at foosball,
with Marty averaging 3.5 goals per 10 point game. I've
been WHOOPIN' HIS ASS.
He's comin' over
tonight to get pummeled by Bill Clinton -
OH! Speakin' of which! You gotta see this
of Bill and Hill
boxing. It's so
funny. Jess thought it was only for the
Playstation 2, and was bummed 'cause she
wanted it. Found it online for the
Dreamcast for $34!! Gotta love that. I was
finally able to buy Jess something. And
yes, she actually wanted a videogame -
she's cool like that.
Anyway, I have a
SACK worth of work to do, so I best be gettin' to
it. I really think Star Wars Blew is gonna be big.
There's some really funny songs on it.
