I ain’t no god damn son of a bitch

Here is the wine-fueled week in review.

I was sick!

Wednesday I went to see “I’m Not There” which is the movie that is about Bob Dylan, but isn’t really about Bob Dylan. I’m glad I saw it, but I don’t really want to ever watch it again. The highlight was hanging out with my friend Avi. We got some drinks afterward, and reminisced, and talked about how ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends should stop existing. I gave a mural artist my phone number and he called me 4 times and left 4 text messages, until I called him and told him to stop calling me.

I called in sick the next day, because I was. I defeated Street Fighter II. I drank some drinks. Did you really think that you were the only one?

It was raining today. I got wet on the way to work, but it felt nice. I went to work and got a promotion. I came home and drank wine. I watched the rest of “Apocalype Now Redux” and realized that it is not only a film but an insane masterpiece. I called Jim. I called Charley. Jaxon got home. We talked.

I called (secret).

I’m calling Dave right now. I hope I don’t get his voicemail. We need to discuss the Bourne films.

He wasn’t there! I left a message.

I’m putting on a record, and thinking of you dear reader.

Top/Bottom 5 Movies of 2007

I know it is only November, but I’m pretty sure this list won’t change in the next 30 days. In fact, the amount of quality movies I saw in the theatre this year was so low, a top 5 was no problem. The bottom five was the toughest list!

Living in Los Angeles presents a catch-22 situation: we get a lot more movies but they cost a lot more. In fact, all five movies on this list were either a limited run in only New York or Los Angeles, or I saw them during their limited opening a few weeks before they went wide. I’m sure there is something to be said about that. But I’m not gonna!

So, the list is after the jump:

Westside Scooter Club on the Internets

Watch this 5 minute spot on my scooter club, along with some great shots of Club Soulside. And, if you have the eagle eye, you can catch me at 3:34 riding up on my Primavera.

Here is the link, because the embedding doesn’t work.

Tomorrow I ride out for the “Classic Not Plastic” vintage ride in the Southbay.

In other news, my Honda is fixed and tip top. And FAST. And slick as snails. Basically, I made it better than ever. I love my garage!

I’m no tough guy.. this is pretty touching. 

I used to play Animal Crossing with my last girlfriend. It was fun.

Where’s the paper bag that holds the liquor?

I came to my desk this morning, and there was a little bottle of Vodka on it!

Turns out, my place of employment’s holiday bash is going to take place at Santa Monica Airport, a mere 5 minutes from my apartment!

Tonight, grease tonight.

First things first. Focus all your positive thoughts, or prayers, or meditate, or do whatever you do and think about my friend Jenny’s Dad, who has a brain tumor and is in surgery as we speak. It can’t hurt.

Dad’s are amazing. I talked to my Dad this evening for about 45 minutes. He told me stories about how he used to work in Edison and during slow nights he and his buddies would tear apart guy’s dirt bike engines in the control room and fix them up. Then they would fire them up and ride around the power plant, leaving blue smoke and loud noise everywhere. I get a lot of motorcycle advice from my Dad, because he is a genius when it comes to that stuff. If I ever become half the person my Dad is, I’ll have succeeded in life.

So, leading into that. I’ve been working on my bike this past two nights – pretty much nonstop. Hold on, I need to put on some music.

It was time for some “Devils and Dust.”

Photo essay after the jump!

Now Showing!

You may enjoy the new header above. Well, let me show you the entire thing:

I don’t even know what to say. This was in the parking lot at In N’ Out. The car was the most busted-ass Mazda van I’ve ever seen. I saw this on the back window and couldn’t leave until I took a picture. The kicker is that in my haste.. I didn’t notice the misspelling until I got home.

The “O” in “BORD” is totally a zero. You can tell, Billy Corgan.

Depressing? Here is one to cheer you up:

It’s free cheese. Just push.
