knew I moved for a reason. What the hell is wrong with
Columbus? Why is it 75 when I get there, but when I'm
at the Crew game it's fuckin 37, with a wind chill of
25? That's 50 degrees people. If that happened in LA
it would be Armageddon. The next time I whine about
the lack of "seasons" out here - feel free to slap me.
'Cause I NEVER wanna live in that shit again. Yeah, it
may not rain again out here until November, but
it's wait, what am I saying!!!???! It won't RAIN
here until November. That's AWESOME. Want rain? Take a
shower. Rain is fun for about 2 minutes, then it's
and while I'm ranting about Columbus This whole
tie thing in sports is just irritating as shit. Saw a
Blue Jackets game and it ended 5-5, the next day the
Crew game ended 1-1. Now I do understand the point
system, and it didn't make the games any less exciting
- both games were awesome but whew. What's wrong
with sudden death until someone scores? It's like they
don't even give it a chance. Hockey has ONE 5 minute
overtime. Soccer has two. You can't do shit in that
amount of time. Oh well, the games were still quite
exciting. Nothin' like testin' my dad's heart by
taking him to sports games. LOL.
on that subject - he's alright. Although it's still
all a bit of a mystery what's gonna happen next. The
problem won't go away, and it can't get better without
surgery. So it just kinda hangs there. That's gotta be
aggravating as hell for him. But physically he's fine.
Cleared to do whatever he wants. Had a blast too. Just
screwed around. Watched movies, went to the games -
talked at Tee Jayes for way to fuggin' long. All the
rituals I've come to associate with my father and
Columbus. Also got to spend time with my mom which was
nice while my dad was at work. It was all incredibly
relaxing and entirely worth it. I wish I could do it
more often. There's something about visits that aren't
surrounded by big events that just feel better. And
also the lack of running all over the city was very,
very nice. Melllllll-o.
on the homefront, the big DVD giveaway is coming up. I
made 50 covers back in Ohio, and will be putting
together demo packages for every damn Manager in this
city. I have to have one by year's end. That would
just be the perfect year. From the job, to the house,
to the Trinitrons Sequel to a manager. Wow. Am I
really one person away from having the most kick-ass
year of my life? That sure as hell sneaks up on you
doesn't it? It's funny, you think of yourself as being
in a failing mode for so long - that when you start to
get out of it you don't even realize it. And now, I'm
completely one person away from rivaling 2001. Word.
of uhm, shit can't thing of a good segue - so
this person Jess knows just moved to LA with her
boyfriend. They work on Star Search. They were in town
back in December and had I had anything put together -
I could've tried out for Star Search under a comedy
category. Of course I'd have to have short Trinitron
bits prepared. Well now that they're back here for
good - I'll at least be able to know when new try-outs
are and have a semi-inside track to the goings on. And
as well, it's good to know shit like that. And talk
about being able to make a positive out of the
Trinitrons delay now I can write the short bits
and tape them alongside the sequel. I'll have to know
exactly how many times I could "possibly" come back if
I won each round - and all the minute requirements of
each, and then produce them all in advance. It's a
total pain in the ass - but it will also be great if I
ever well did TV again. Back in 2001, we thought
about having a bank of mini-shows to be able to use in
different situations, and now the opportunity is just
way too big to pass up. I really think in a 3-4 minute
setting, you could really pull off some
funny/impressive shit. All with TV in mind. Pretty
exciting stuff. I still think if given the opportunity
to audition, there's just no way they're not putting
it on TV. Impossible. So yet another thing to be
really fuggin' excited about. And without the delay,
there's just no way I could've pulled it off.
Sometimes things just work out.
you sense the change? Can you feel how different
things seem now? Just crazy. It's why you have to stay
out here if you believe in what you do. Just stay.
Keep scheming. I mean, can you imagine how much
performing the Trinitrons on National TV would DWARF
the Comedy Store? A moment in my life I thought would
never be equaled, could be replaced in an instant.
Talk about highs and lows. But I can't really think
about that - just need to create the best show
possible. I need to continue to create, the rest will
fall into place.
for the first time in 18 months, I actually BELIEVE
and allow me to introduce the world's most
boring 3-video set in the history of The
Journey. My defense? I like it. The next 3
entries will include footage of our house,
and the disrepair that it is in. The only
way anyone will ever click on these links
are out of sheer boredom, or if it's 2012
right now and I'm famous or some shit.
Either way - here's Part
Check out that fuckin' hole in the garage.
What the HELL?
