Fahrenheit 9/11

I saw it!
I saw Fahrenheit today and I was happy and sad.
I was happy because I got a chance to see marvelous film that really shows America at its best and worst.  America at its worst because of all the questionable things that went on for many years, and at its best because there are many places in the world where a film as slanted against the existing government would not see the light of day.
I have a real problem with a film that id modeled after the documentary format that spoon feeds you emotion, but I appreciate the fact that this movie is definitely going to see a much larger and more diverse audience than would have ever seen this type of film in the past.  There are going to be quite a few people that will look at the entire 9.11 experience in a whole new way.
After the movie I kissed someone.
I guess all the death is a turn on for some chicks.*
*This was a joke.

Bowl to the beat yo!

I just went bowling! 
I love to bowl, especially since I just got a few free lessons when I was working on a film that is based around me bowling.  Yeah, I will post it later, but the real treat is that I have learned to bowl better than I have ever bowled in my life!
I went bowling with a friend and it was an experience unlike any other time I have ever been out bowling.  The alley that we went to blared loud hip hop music while we were bowling.  Not only did it energize us while we were bowling, it allowed us to bowl and then dance for a bit while we were waiting for our ball to come back in the return.
Of all the songs that I heard while we were bowling, the best song to dance to while the ball was on its way back was "Sex Machine" by James Brown.
Try it, unless you are lame.

Bonnie McFarlane

I think she's funny.  There were other funny people on Last Comic Standing, but not other people that everyone calls a bitch.
I'm just throwing support her way, not that it helps.

Last Comic Standing

Yeah, I saw last comic standing last night and I felt good and bad.
A lot of the comics who had made it to the final round were friends of mine.  There were quite a few comics who did well and then didn't get to be in the house and apparently there was a bit of an upset because of that.  Truth is, the people that did get into the house were not necessarily the comics that I would have chosen, but ultimately, that doesn't matter at all because I am not in charge.  From the show it kind of looks like Dan Natterman really got the short end of the stick.  That guy is funny!  By the way, if you ever want to insult a comic to their face then tell them that they are funny, but when you say funny make funny sound like "phony" as if you were saying it ebonically.
I declined to even audition for Last Comic Standing this year because I thought that it would be silly to wait in a long line. 
Now I wish I had.

The good and bad

I hopt the blog thing doesn't bunch all of this up. I have been trying a
new thing where I can send my posts to an email address and then they are
all posted on my blog automatically. Unfortunately, it seems to either put
line breaks where I don't want them or to make the entire post one
paragraph. What the?

One of my friends just brought the girl of his dreams back home. Me next

I had one of the best shows that I think that I have ever had in a while

Where are you?

I had a good day

You may or may not know that I feel kind of lax in my ability to make new
friends in LA since I have been here. I have tried, but for the most part I
have been constantly bombarded with people who are not quite complete. When
I say complete, I mean that they don't seem to have full command of their
faculties. For me, that is a deal breaker.

I hung out today with a friend of mine whose company I enjoy a whole lot.
If it were up to me that would be my job.

How can I make that happen?

It's a different world.


I am working very hard right now on my writing in a way that I never have.
I actually feel exhilarated when I am at the keyboard of my computer.

I am about to do something pretty cool to my blog, I think I will invite my
entire family to post.

Just in case

You thought that I was not going to share the goods with you, I am going to
the premiere of CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK tonight and I hope to have a great
time as I love sci-fi movies.
