The club can't even handle me right now, well that's what I heard anyway. How did it go today Thursday? it's gonna get better, so much better. I already feel it. It was cold for a couple of days and now, we're used to it. Let's get on with it, right? I'm wearing so much clothes it looks like I've gained weight, not to worry, it's not something I fear or think about. I just keep on keeping on, and put on different pants. Don't forget to smile and laugh, it really does help.

What is up, people??? Well hope everything turned out just fine this weekend for everyone and if it didn't you can always turn things around this week. We're gonna try something a little different today.We'll try to focus on good things that we'd like to happen this week. No Bad. Just good. Great things. Promotions. Friendships, alliances and well-being. Especially if  you are feeling tired. We're gonna need some quiet for this quick exercise. Not dead quiet, just keep radios t.v.s, and any other distraction at a minimum. We're going to Imagine, picture if you would, visualize. Imagination is a hell of a thing. We've all got one. We can use it to our advantage, as a tool for any thing we'd like to see happen in our lives. Used regularly, it can assist with attaining what we need. Which is sometimes not the obvious thing, and different for different people.We're gonna do that by sending oxygen to your brain and all over your body which should energize your brain without the jittery nervous energy that comes with chemical assistance of beverages and the like,  no coming down more tired afterwards. We're just harvesting natural energy at our disposal, if we just slow down and respect the body. We should see an increase in our good moods.Seriously. I know it sounds stupid, trust. Try it one time. Ready?
1. You're gonna close your eyes for just a bit.
2. Take a couple (10) deep breaths, in through your nose, out through the mouth.
3. What your looking for is calm, a calm should come over you, with each breath you take. Little by little.
    Okay? when you're done open your eyes.
                                                                         Ready? let's try it. slowly

How did it go? Was it easy? If you didn't fall asleep, your good. If you followed the directions, and you feel it did you good, well great, you just did some meditation. There's many different forms of it, one may just work wonders for you. If nothing else, being able to quiet down the quickening of life these days may get rid of a headache or two.
    Next we're gonna need you to picture, or visualize what happiness means to you. Is it true love? Is it a great job with awesome benefits. Can you picture it? Is happiness in reverse for you? Is it not being fearful, or  not being in fear of something? Well picture the positive of that don't give energy to something negative. Picture yourself and what you look like doing things without a fear, being outgoing and brave. Can you picture this? We'll stop there, okay?
                                            Happiness, what is it?; That is homework...

'nuff about you guys . Let's not get too serious. What is this vampire trend I'm being assaulted by every time I turn on the t.v.? Since when do vampires rule the daytime? That's supposed to be left to Reggis and Kelly and the women at The View (is that still a thing?). Vampires cannot walk in daylight!! Everyone knows that. And did a vampire impregnate someone? Is that what what I'm supposed to pay for? I thought vampires had no blood or sperm of their own and that is why the were always sucking to get at these precious fluids. Smile it's just a movie, but the sun is coming up so...dude, where's my clothes... I gotta get to work...
Do you know NINA?
PS. I truly believe Every single body is such a wonderful miracle and the natural occurrences that go on daily would astound us if we really thought about it. The chemicals our body produces would put a pharmacy to shame. If we just listened to our bodies(sounds hippie-ish I know) and formed some kind of allegiance, instead of always being at war with it (low body image sufferers, myself included). I cannot imagine what people would do with all that energy. Let's try it and see. Until next time.

Saturday Nov. 26

    No more about Dubstep, I've been getting too much feedback about this one. Many people think it all sounds the same, not true, some times there's a noodle and sometimes there's a screech. so no more...for now.

Happy Freakin' Saturday all. Hope you survived Friday, or as it shall be known from now on TGI-black-F. Hope you didn't get into a fight on a toy aisle. Hope you didn't have to get your child a toy that is in limited supply and very expensive. Hope your child doesn't find it vital to have a toy that is in limited supply and very expensive (it helps if you keep 'em away from kids that do find that to be true, peer pressure folks, just say no).
Hope you didn't get pepper-sprayed while reaching for a sweet bargain at an ungodly hour. Hope you got some sleep. All in all: Hope your happy. But take a breather if your not, think about why not, we won't judge you. We're alive let's rejoice.
    Now, are you ready for December? It's coming, but don't fret none. We'll get through it together. Unless we don't in which case there's no use worrying about it okay? We'll be fine. Trust.
    If you live in Los Angeles and even if you don't thanks to the inteweb, you may have seen Thursdays LA Weekly. It's got a cover story of the big one. For my roomate that only means one thing and it's dirty! For the rest of us Angelenos it means The big impending earthquake.
Experts have been talking about it for years because we are located near the ring of fire and on San Andreas Fault line  (no,Not the bar). We're supposed to get it good. And according to the article the first fifteen minutes after the quake will be crucial, because everyone will be left to their own devices for that period. I don't believe in scaring people for no reason. I'm a big subscriber of people not living in fear and all that. But this is LA and we do have quakes so: PLEASE TELL ME YOU HAVE WATER SET ASIDE. Or please make sure you do this weekend and stash it for the future. Your future. You never know even if we never have a big earthquake again, you still may need water for some other emergency. You never know

Here's some haha for you. Louis CK. damn good next to any current comedian.

12:00 AM Black Friday Sucks

    Shopping has officially been ruined. It's a pretty hard task to to do, but it's been done. Done did as some would say. To ruin such a time honored human experience, for shame. The window shopping experience. I remember it like it was just yesterday like I had my nose pressed to a toy store window like a child out of The Little Rascals. The anticipation of unnecessary purchases during the holidays, without the required time to sleep and process is just inhuman. You can no longer close your heavy lidded eyeballs, tired from shoveling fistfuls of meats and breads (oooooh yea), and dream of candy colored plastic objects and devices that are faster and deliver more pixels and bytes than before. How do we adapt to this type of corporate bullying? I'll never know. I don't know what to fucking do!!! I guess I'll occupy all whorish stores that have no respect for their workers, who have no choice in being there at midnite or not (Unemployment is not a choice). I do know that I'm just not going any-fucking-where  at MIDNITE after a day full of roman style gorging. Kiss my...
    That's just bad news (Target and all else involved or planning to...). Be prepared for some real human drama to drop, and possible smelly clean-ups in aisles 1-24.
    Dude, where's my clothes? let me get out of this one.

REAL STEEL, the movie. No Dubstep, REELY?

Happy Tuesday all! We're getting close to Thanksgiving everybody. What's up?? anybody scared more that on Halloween? All that family mixing and polite conversation seem like too much to bare? I hear ya. And worse, in some families, the terror is reasonable, to say the least. Some of us, the worst it will get is some relative will ask us with a smirk if we're still not married and roll the eyes (my aunt always had it in for me, sorry I beat up your kid, he had a filthy mouth... like his parents!!!). Anyway...
    Saw REAL STEEL ( I have a weakness for robots, always have, dinosaurs too. Sue me!). Anyhoots. Is there a reason the music to the movie was soooo crappy circa 1997? If this was Rocky with Robots, there was no step climbing theme song, no eye of the tiger. I mean seriously, and having so much music to choose from. With what I imagine a field of knob twiddling up and coming computer virtuosos still living with mom, and just waiting for a chance to come along. Was it really vital to make the soundtrack to the movie set in the future sound awful? Does music that sucks hard, still exist in the Future? Or did it like all musical styles, did bad music make a comeback? Say it ain't so. Were all black eyed peas soundalikes too busy? Did Skrillex or his tribe not have a jittery track just laying about? Nothing was memorable. Was it too much to ask, that the near future have better music?
     I'm no gigantic fan of mechanical noise. I'm not saying that dubstep is a new sound. At it's best it's an element that unites people of a certain age and leaning. But it is so appropriate for this one movie. Some electronic theme song to suggest the future. Oh well, it's just a movie you should see it if you have the time and extra money. If you love robots or Hugh, it's good. Don't forget to not eat too much, you'll feel terrible afterwards. I hope we're all making it happen, to finish this year with a bang, whatever 'it' is. Drop me a line sometime.
But really, no one said "hey guys, maybe we should get one good song for this here movie"? -I'm letting it go.
I'm out of here, dude where's my clothes?

Happy Thursday all, hope you're as good as good gets, 'cause I wouldn't have it any other way. I hear there's some people that went to the NOHO fest and couldn't find a drink. Maybe they just weren't looking hard enough. Because I seemed to have no problem getting a couple of drinks...from the coffee cup filled with vodka I took with me. Just kidding, I don't drink from coffee cups filled with booze...anymore. Things were a little hard to find and spread out but bearable, I thought.
    Oh yea, remodeling has begun on JO’s bedroom. Today we cleared his room of all furniture.  I am fucking tired.  I could really use a massage …on my penis. Oh what… (actually I don’t’ think that’s technically called a massage and anyway I prefer the way the British pronounce it ma-ssage as opposed to massage not the other word :p ). We’ve (he has) decided to go with a Robins egg hint of blue and deep chocolate accents because I haven’t seen that in every girls magazine in the last couple of years. I’m sure it will look nice in the end. I’ll love it. I like those colors together fine and all it’s just annoying to hear people think they invented those colors today. Joe I love you but I'm gonna hug you 'till you poop, damn it. Tomorrow advertisers will decide on another color and we’ll be surrounded with those, whatever. I was sold on his original theme: Dowtown-Los Angeles -tropical-garden-leather-bar. It would of been different. I like painting and helping a friend out, but I don’t know if I can continue this for long. Working after working all day isn’t working that great. I may have to quit my day job.
    The music video is an odd one all right, for those who remember this and for those hearing it for the first time. Yes it's the same MINISTRY, and the song is work for love, gotta do what you gotta do.
    Hit me. dude...where's my clothes???

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

What is up everybody? Hope all is good with everyone and if it isn't yet, it can be if you can picture what that looks like. Many just don't like where their station in life is at, but don't know what they really want. You gotta see what happy looks and feels like to you. To know what it is when you step in it. It's different for all.
tis the season to ...oh it's not Dec.?
    Every year it's the same thing: Christmas comes too early. Especially in Californi's where there really is no obvious visual environmental cue, as in the falling of the maple leaves or silimar, to signal the coming of fall, or even winter some years. Some years I've been to the beach near thanksgiving and even Christmas one time. Some of us would appreciate the appearance of a fall season. I still haven't put away the disguise I didn't use for Halloween (I was too sick to go out). Instead we are rushed to the mall to the beat of a different drum and season. Proof was in the Burbank mall this past week when I came face to fir as I stumbled out of the merry go round they call a parking structure , and stumbled across this(pictured above). C'mon!! I am pretty sick of it it's no longer funny. Well, a little funny as in I'm not buying useless tokens on some retail schedule. fuck that.
    On a positive note: I've got pics from the NOHO Fest stay tuned.

Are you ready for the weekend? It's gonna be a good weekend or so they say all over the internet and news. I overheard some little old lady telling her dog this, and a dude wearing a lot a cologne say it really loud on his cellphone while dramatically waving his arms making sure everyone saw that he was very serious, soooo... you might wanna psyche yourself up, you know what I'm saying?It's gonna be good. Ima make some brownies. (And I mean some little fudge cake squares you make from a box, you filthy pirates. arrg).
    I also hear it might rain out here in CALI's (or sprinkle real hard in the case of LA) but don't let that stop your fun. Put on some manly galoshes and get ready to PARTY ( or some color coordinated bathrobe/pajamas and do some furious reading). You can do whatever you like...
    Isn't Carly Simon due for a comeback? What with the emergence of the AM Gold sound with all these new bands." And Nobody does it better...". I know I still have my BREAD and AMERICA records ready to go on my turntable "and OZ never did give nothing to the Tin-man, that he didn't...didn't (c'mon, everybody...woot). Dan Fogelber would be a Jedi.
    Sleepy Joe's been busy, he's remodeling his room. I'm supposed to help him paint, we'll see about that...I want to go see that new stupid movie with that stupid actor so maybe there's a trade in there somewhere. I like a lot of butter on my popcorn too, sleepy time! Love ya tons, guy.
    Fellas don't forget to sign up for google (which you can do from this page), so you can post comments and suggestions on here. We want to hear from you. I understand people from as far as Canada are reading this. Shout out to Canada!!Keep it up. Sorry in the delays but I'll try to make up for it in fun ;-)
  come on you didn't think I wouldn't did you? AM- RADIO GOLD I said.

North Hollywood Arts Fest This Saturday. Don't forget fellas.

You have so much to be thankful for on any given day, why don’t you smile more little lady ( yes that includes you). Hey everyone hope you are all okay and in the best of spirits and moods. And if that is not the case why not? think about it and see if you can fix it. A friend of mine told me the other day that he thought I drank when I write this. I do not; must be the writing, cause usually I write and vent sometimes when I should just get a drink. I don't like hangovers, tho. I have recently had a lot going on. This tends to put me in a weird space mentally. Gotta let the cabeza (head) breathe, you know. And having recently emerged from a two week cold didn't help. A nose congestion that made me sound like some one to stay away from for sure. I hope nobody gets that cause it's going around. Apparently there is some pretty good over the counter medicines. Wish I'd heard sooner.You hear so much everywhere that you tend to tune it out until someone comes along and you realize maybe if it worked for dear old sleepy time gobbles over there, I might try it. Live and learn.
 I've had the opportunity to let go of bad things this week. That is what it is; an opportunity. A golden opportunity that I'll gladly take and be thankful for.
       I started this post days ago but I've barely begun to feel like myself again. This post lead to other splinter posts that went nowhere. I had so much to say, but it's just as well 'cause it was probably some feverish babble. I do feel bad for not posting this particular one earlier because it's about something really good. Sorry. The North Hollywood street fest is coming! I have to tell you that if you happen to be lost or somebody drove off leaving you in North Hollywood Caleefornia. You’re in luck. Hey even if you wake up everyday and call this city your home, while you sip your frapp-a-chino, you’re in luck. That is if you happen to be in the city on the 12th of November. This Saturday. There's free theater at the many small theaters located very close together.Food, ah, grilled corn, good pizza, drinks. Music.
        As a school field trip once we went to a place called: Bob Baker Marionette Theatre. (www.bobbakermarionettes.com) I remember it as a dream, funny since It's kinda of dreamlike even in person. I was a great place to visit in Los Angeles and odd. It always stays with you, though. Then a few years back I went to my first NoHo Arts district fest. It was a street fair of sorts with all sorts of really cool crafts being sold. I had some corn and soda it was pretty nice. As I walked around in the amazing california sun, I stumbled upon what turned up to be the Bob Baker Marionettes themselves performing. Well someone helped them of course. I took some pictures and enjoyed it like I was an 8 year old. You just never know what will happen at these things. I'm not sure what the set up is this year but I'm sure it will be good. There is actual free theater offered by many of the local groups (schedule available at website http://nohoartsdistrict.com/experience-noho/). Don't be a downer, and show up, take your girl, your man, your friend that your not sure what's going on with, but don't stay in just watching the game or tv boring us all. Get out. Let the sun warm you for a bit. There's gonna be booze and free music and food. If you still don't cheer up, there's just no cheering you up at all today, see ya there Saturday.
    If your near a Metro or bus station, and you don't want to drive, well check out my previous post Ride this gettin around on the red line metro. It drops you off right at the center of it all.

November November

What the hell happened? I was getting ready for Halloween when all of a sudden BAM (Big Chef Emeril Lagasse style) I came down with some sinus thingy that seemed like allergies until it culminated  This weekend with me in bed ,achy and in a feverish marathon of Healthy cops solving murders and tons of fluids and flu medicine. You see it turns out all cable chanels had at some time over the weekend a marathon of their cop shows. And that was all I had the strength to focus on. It was manly awesome and weird. It was an endless parade of late nite sweats (not the good kind) and one bloody corpse after another (from the cop shows). I woke up and it was November, damn it! Oh well there's always next year to dress up or any given day I feel like dressing up  and having a drink right? why cry over spilled milk...So lets give thanks to all the healthy cops keeping us safe on the television sets around the  world, Okay?
First and foremost lets give it up (and why not, right?) to Chris Meloni on  SVU. For years he's been bringing us manly justice and due punishment. You might also know him from HBOs OZ a few years back he's pretty good awright...

Next up is Tony Dinozzo, on NCIS He's played by Michael Weatherly, he plays goofy smart guy to Mark Harmons' Jethro Gibbs, on this team. He can play anything he wants, I guess, who's gonna say no?

Finally it's CSI's turn and the men that solved so much in such a short amount of time.Gil Grissom Older distinguished gentleman season 1-9 was played by no nonsense manly actor William Pettersen, seen here doing the rock on sign, and playing the role of young hunk cop is George Ead playing Nick Stokes. So much got solved over this Halloween weekend with all the cop show marathons I just might start watching regularly, right?
Stay healthy San Diego
