Well now that's strange...a
problem resolving itself that quickly. Not completely
resolved, I guess...but at least there's a plan
We found an apartment that didn't
care about my trailer. Unfortunately that's the only
spot we can have. Now of course when the city comes
down on them as they did Riata (our current apartment
complex), I'll be in the same predicament. But there's
a good solution to that at least: Found a place in
Chatsworth....a bit north of where we are now that
lets you park stuff for like $50 a month. That will be
my last resort...Not quitting 4tvs is worth $50 a
So all is good...right? Well...the
apartment is a bit steep...and it's one bedroom....for
$875 a month. You know you've lived in LA for too long
when you're excited about your new 1 bedroom for
nearly $900. It accepts cats, it's got a nice pool and
the biggie: LOCATION. I guess only you living in LA
would know the importance of being close to the 405 or
Well we're next to
both and we're in Sherman Oaks. Very nice
part of town, in the middle of everything.
In fact I have made a nice
showing where we are moving to. Now
I must admit....this is a bit cheap.
Two entries and one video. All I can say
is: Cut me some slack here. I did 53
straight videos per entry. I feel like
I did back at WTVN when I had to
come up with Top 9 lists every week. That
got rough. I made it to 81 and then I
just lost my mind. Oh well, the video's
worth it. It's pretty funny.
I got a parking ticket while
signing off on everything at the apartment. Bastard.
I came out at 12:07 to get in my car...and he was
printing the ticket out as I was trying to zoom out.
He won. Street cleaning every tuesdays at 12:00 - 2:00
PM. $40 is such a smack in the face...but oh well. The
credit check for Jess and I was $60, and they're
usually much higher. So whew.
The other absolute butt-head thing
about all of this is we have to be out on July 31st,
and the apartment isn't ready until August 3rd, so
they can paint and stuff. Riata won't let us stay 2
more days. I can't believe they can't pro-rate
us. They already freakin' ADDED a month. That's
shitty enough...We're gonna be putting up some serious
dough to hang out in a hotel for 2 days, and rent the
big U-HAUL for 3 days. Which we wouldn't even need if
they let us stay!!!! My trailer and Jess's
pick-up could get it all done in about 3 or 4
trips...for FREE. Bastards at Riata. Hopefully
something comes up. The lady at the new apartment
building was really nice. She may kick the tenant out
a few days early...lol.
CD101 is KING! Congrats to all
from CD101. When I heard that Channel Z went
down, I had such a great feeling of pride. That party
must've been the SHIT (from what I hear, it certainly
was Vern). What a great 10 Year Anniversary Present!
That along with The Blue Jackets...the future is as
bright as ever for CD101. No station is more deserving
of some great, hard-earned, breaks.
In Hollywood Screentest news,
Movie Minded has been completely overhauled...for the
better. We're shooting Episode 4 tomorrow and the
changes are great. We're doing the Patriot, and now
instead of the trailers, Live Adam will be spoofing
the movies themselves as the TVs talk about the movie.
If you'd like to see the first 3 episodes...well gimme
some time...I'm looking for a little more server
space, and I just may have it. When I do, I'll
throw 'em up here for ya. They've turned out really
On the personal front, so many of
you have asked me about the REAL story behind my first
entry of June, and what the result has been. It's a
tough one to really explain. In recent weeks, many
wounds have been healed, and the Columbus wedding is
on again. All I can say is I'm overjoyed that the
miscommunications could be worked through and our
wedding can be a day of happiness, and no other
emotion. A lot of stress of course...but that's what
weddings are for really. A life lesson on stress
management. After planning a wedding, and living
through the day...childbirth seems a bit easier to
So the next 2 months are gonna be
insane. Hopefully on September 1st, Jess and
I can sit back and relax for the first
time...wow. Ever since November of 1998 Jess and
I have been stressing. Wow. Damn 4tvs.
I can't wait for football....oooh and Dennis
Miller. Sorry about my previous Jim Rome take. I
could've sworn he said he had the gig...and he
would've rocked....though his left ear is just too
funny. I'd laugh at him on Monday Night Football. It
just DARTS out. ANYWAY. I love Dennis
Miller...it should be an interesting football season.
Go Bears. Man that's laughable in itself. At least I
know they'll be better than the Steelers this year.
:-) Take that Marty. Man moose...I miss playing
Blitz. You gotta get back to LA soon.
Well, goodbye June. I guess now it
gets really hot in LA. Great. I thought 105 was
