one last post tonight

What I want for Christmas. I don’t want anything for Christmas, actually. Mom.. do you read my blog?

I’ve been trying, but I can’t. The only band that matters to me right now (and this last half of 2006) has been Guided By Voices. They are #1. Sure, I’ve been listening to the new Scissor Sisters a lot, and Wire of course, but I can’t get away from Guided By Voices. They are the best. They are the only band I would get a tattoo of. They are the only band that matters to me right now. Robert Pollard is the best song writer I have ever heard. Yes.. up there with my favorite song writer Michael Stipe. Above Morrissey. Behold:

confirmations through the wire
spitting gas into the fire
am i also worthy of a drink?

to dine, alone
to build a private zone
or trigger a synapse
and free us from our traps

thrilling for you, thrilling for me

Tomorrow: Thursday Tea Ritual
Friday: Up in the Air
Saturday: Pleaseeasaur! I honestly think he’ll remember us. How can you not?
Sunday: None of your business, why are you asking me? Ok.. shopping perhaps.. for: PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT HOLIDAY PARTY! Cocktail attire requested, cocktail attire ye shall receive!

I feel like I have a lot of stuff when I look around, and I want to get rid of stuff, but then I realize I really don’t have that much stuff. I’m pretty sure I could live with less stuff though.

While designing my camera mount for my Vespa, I realized where I want to put it will be a little low. Plus, there are a lot of great things I see driving around that you need to be a little higher for, like the two giant 747’s taxiing across the tunnel I go through in the morning. It looked amazing. I am still fascinated with giant machines and modes of transportation.

Put your life on hold. Nothing! And Everything!

boo to the business world

bloggin’

Sometimes I forget to close my AIM at work, so I am logged on all night. If you ever get on AIM and see eltonjohnpre1975 logged in at 3 AM, first off, ask yourself why you are logging onto AIM at 3 AM. Second, know that I am sound asleep, and I just left my AIM on at work.

can i have it?

I had a dream that I was playing all these awesome records at a record store I owned, and people kept coming up and saying “can I get a copy of that.. oooh I want that… give me a copy!” And I was writing down all these names to make CDR’s of albums for people. That’s not very good business sense, don’t you think? I’d like to think that if I were awake, I would have better business sense than that.

It has been a cold couple of rides this week. I’ve been mega-bundling up. I used to ride dirtbikes in colder weather than this.. in the snow once even. I guess I was never going 60 on wide open roads, though. I miss riding dirtbikes. If everyone who rode to work in their cars by themselves rode a scooter, L.A.’s pollution problem would be dramatically reduced. Luckily, living by the ocean, I don’t have to worry too much about the dirty air, like on the EAST SIDE (I am flashing a WEST SIDE hand signal right now.. uh oh.. fight!!!!).

I don’t have anything else to say this morning. I slept like crap!

crush everything! i mean smash…..

I was exhausted last night, and I’m not even sure why. It was pretty cold here last night, and I even went out to look for a cheap robotic heater friend, but I couldn’t find any. When I got home, I was going to go through my daily workout routine, but I was too lazy. I tried to do some reading, but got drowsy. I finally fell asleep watching “Being John Malkovich” at about 10:30!!

I woke up this morning and the sun was shining, which is nice. It will be semi-warm today, enough of that silly rain. Today I’m going to try and fix-up a camera harness for that video camera.. depending on how far I get I’ll take a few videos. Unfortunately, I haven’t made that cable yet, so you won’t be able to see them, viewer.

When you call/email/text someone, and you don’t get a reply, they are basically saying that you aren’t worthy of their communication. That’s depressing!

Christmas is in less than four weeks. I’ll end on that.

first rainy ride


I woke up at 6 a.m. to the sound of rain.. I had checked the weather Sunday night and it said there was only a 30% chance. By the time I got up at 8, the rain had stopped and I see the hints of sunshine as I look south toward El Segundo. I’m still taking precautions, such as wearing my rain jacket, closing all the vents on my helmet, and not being super aggressive with my driving. It hasn’t rained here in 6 months or so, and I expect the streets to be super slick. I already went outside and wiped down my Vespa, but I guess this means it is time to buy a cover.
