Six Flags is a magical Magical MAGICAL place...




David<~~~~~~~~Big PIMPIN'!

I got a box in the mail today

It was a Coldwater Creek box that my Mom shipped me. I figured it was either something from Coldwater or Mom reused a box from something she ordered from Coldwater Creek. So I open it and discovered that Mom reused the box to ship me all of my Dad's ties. One of them was still tied, he had just lossened it and put it back on the tie rack that was also in the box. I also received a nice pair of suspenders. I will wear these ties and think of my Father...

I miss my Dad

Weird...



OK, you all knew that about me already. I'm a huge fan of Erin Bode, she's a local girl that sings beautifully. She and her band performed at my Store's opening night. Tif and I saw them perform again about a month ago in Festus. Really good. So I get her email newsletter that lets me know where she's playing and she mentions that she's on Facebook. I'M ON FACEBOOK TOO! So of course I look for her and not only find her official "Fan" entry but her personal entry as well. Cool. I joined her Face book fanbase and I also sent a 'friend' request (::crosses fingers and toes::) to her personally. Who knows. Maybe if I'm lucky. So now I'm flipping through her Friends list so see if we have anyone in common and I come across Morgan Freeman. Yes that Morgan Freeman, remember Erin is a really good singer and Morgan is obviousily a fan. So...I fire off another 'friend' request to Mr. Freeman. What a weird day ::wink::

I want those who get to know me...



FRIEND OR FOE

(Adam Ant/Marco Pirroni)

Take it up or leave it
Im not gonna change a bit
If it means heartache
Then leave it out for your sake

I tried and I try tried
To take care of my insides
Nobodys perfect
so leave me if you object

I want those who get to know me
To become admirers or my enemies....

When you're a pirouetting, highkicking, thighslapping cruiser
When youre a hipgrinding, spellbinding, clean cut seducer
You have to be careful
so
people take note
I take it serious,
but I still like a joke

I want those who get to know me
To become admirers or my enemies

Keep your philosophy
It doesnt apply to me

If it means heartache
Then leave it out for your sake
I tried and I try tried
But still you say that I lied
Nobodys perfect
so leave me if you object

I have a bad habit...

I bite my fingernails and sometimes I tear the skin around my nails. I just ripped off a loose piece of the cuticle on my left pointer finger. To Snooky I guess it smells like an injury. She is VERY concerned. She keeps trying to smell my finger and stares at it cross-eyed. The only time I have refrained from biting my nails was when I had my fingernails professionally done for the "Wedding Rings" photo when I was married. ::shrugs:: I guess I need to have my nails done...

Sooooo I'm still alive...



ARTIE IS SHORTER IN PERSON THAN YOU'D THINK...

Today was the Artie Lange signing at my Store. We moved 650 Howard Stern fans thru the Book Signing line in one hour and thirty minutes. Only three regretable incidents: 1) a fan tricked a Bookseller into paging someone's name over the Store's intercom that was really a joke. 2) a fan screamed something about "Robin's Boobs" as he left the Store (he used a different word though) and 3) a fan screamed that he loved Artie Lange as he left the Store (what is up with these people who are only brave enough to be rude just as they walk out of the Store?). Lots of girls in 'Catch the eye of the Rock Star' tee shirts. Lots of pick-up trucks in my Parking Lot. Went over very well, my Booksellers ROCK!
Sooooo home relaxin' chillin' on the couch watching live coverage of Comic-Con 09...
WHY AREN'T I ASLEEP???????????????????

THE WATCHMEN!



Rorschach's Journal: Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save Us!"...



...and I'll look down, and whisper, "No".

David gets Political


OK, just in case you haven't figured it out. Republican Politicians are pushing the special interests of the Big Business Health Insurance Industry. If the Big Business Health Insurance Industry thought that our President's Health System Reforms would save them money they would support our President. Since they believe that our President's Health System Reforms will reduce their profits they are pushing their Republican Politicians out into the Media to shepard their special interests and to try and derail our President's Health System Reforms. This is AMERICA, and profits are OK with me. This is AMERICA, and I'm going to speak out and voice my opinion. When the Greed of the Big Business Health Insurance Industry is counter productive to the well being of the vast majority of the AMERICAN People I have a problem with the special interests and their Republican Politicians. I remember what my Grandmother Mama Smith once said (and I paraphrase), "The Republicans take care of The Rich and the Democrats take care of The People." Never a truer word was said...

downstream

sing a song of sixpence a pocketful of rye ashes ashes we all fall down when i'm tired i play 'eyegames' i use an imaginary line drawn from my eyes to trace the geometric shapes that occur nearby a door frame a window the outline where the walls meet the ceiling tiles on the bathroom floor it calms me but if someone sees me doing it i tend to look a little bit crazy i don't move my head just my eyes yea i know it does look crazy when i was a kid i was convinced that our pomeranian dog prince could talk when i would talk to him he would tilt his head and look at me i would say to prince it's ok i won't tell anyone you can talk to me when i was a kid i thought that my aunt mary was lucille ball and my uncle darrell was jethro from the beverly hillbillies in college i once concentrated at my tv set and the picture got fuzzy and jumped back and forth a bit so i kept trying it and got the same results over and over again i called mary my fiance at the time to watch the tv screen and tell me if anything happened so i concentrated and mary told me that the tv screen changed i was ecstatic i could mentally affect the material world so i did it over and over again reveling in my mutant abilities when i thought of something i tried my ability on a bookcase and it got fuzzy and jumped back and forth damn when i was concentrating i was making my eyes go unfocused i was not a mutant i called mary back into the room and asked her why she said that the tv screen changed and she told me that it was obvious that it was important to me so she just went along with my delusion i'm watching penn and tellers bullshit they are shooting holes in the twenty twelve apocalypse theories i love these two guys they cut me up i need a diagram of the universe with an arrow pointing to my location with the caption you are here so if i lose my keys after my alien abduction i can find my way home i remember watching a tv show back in the seventies about ufo's and their theory was that if someone saw something in the sky and you didn't know what it was that meant that it had to be an alien at work we sell a magazine called skeptic and in the last issue they faked ufo's and documented their efforts and then counted how many people then assumed that they saw aliens and what media outlets picked up the story that is funny makes me laugh know what else makes me laugh watching videos of kids skateboarding and breaking their bones trying difficult tricks i also like watching cops makes me feel superior no matter how my day went or how i feel my day is going better than the white trash being chewed on by the police dog when someone says come out or i'll send in the dog i advise you to come out don't drink don't smoke what do you do laugh kookaburras laugh how gay your life must be i would like i would like i would like to keep some finches but i have no desire to clean another enclosure so no birds for me it's time to go to sleep because i'm done typing now stream of conscious gets boring after a while sorry that you read this all the way to the end...

The Sheryl Crow/Elvis Costello Concert was a lot of fun...

One of the best things about the Concert was that it was free. One of the worst things about the Concert was that it was free. OK, this next part is not designed to make me look like a reasonable person, or a nice non-judgemental guy. The two Losers that sat next to Tif & I drove me nuts. Loser #1 sat directly next to me. Skinny Diabetic Drunk Chain Smoking guy that kept begging cookies off of the lady behind us because his sugar was low. He took off his flip flops and used them as an ashtray (because that is where I'd keep my burning ciggerette and it is the most logical place to put out your butts). Loser #2 sat on the other side of Loser #1. Fat Balding With A Long Ponytail Drunk Chain Smoking Brother to Loser #1. When he left to get something for his brother to eat he stumbled right past his brother, someone had to catch him to let him know that he missed his seating spot.
Other than that, it was a fun Concert. The heat toned down later on in the evening. I need a lens for my camera so I can take better pictures. I couldn't zoom in close enough to see Sheryl's or Elvis' face while they were on stage. Sherly did a great job, she is a very good performer. So I bought The Very Best Of Sheryl Crow CD at work yesterday to listen to before the Concert. Did I mention that I buy a lot of Music. Once I got home and was looking through my CD's for my Elvis Costello Greatest Hits I found the first copy of The Very Best Of Sheryl Crow CD that I had purchased and then forgot. So Tif got a new CD. Elvis only sang two of his songs (Pump It Up and Peace, Love & Understanding). That sucked, I was really looking forward to listening to Elvis more...
