February 12

Media: Zero films.

Music: Galactic, live at The Variety Playhouse in Little Five Points. Opening act was Orgone. Corey Glover of Living Colour did vocals for the band and did it well. Was fun to hear them do LC’s ‘Love Rears its Ugly Head’ (a pic I snapped during).

Comedy: Nada.

Food/Drink: A nice Italian sandwich at the deli with Steve. Tapas as Prohibition with John before the concert. I had a delightful modified bourbon sour from my favorite bartender in the world (Bob Ruede) and a Newcastle at the concert.

Family: We all blurred past each other all day. Mom was really helpful in keeping the kids thrilled while I darted around in preparation for the trip.

Friends: Steve came by for a while to work on tunes and hang out. John stopped by before the concert. We played darts until my electronic dart board went home to Jesus. Looks like a trip to Dick’s is in order.

Work: Started screen grabs for Unstoppable. Sci-Fi and Blog. Of course!

Art: If you consider working on Wizard’s Keys album cover art… then THAT.

Goodies: Nein.

Screenwriting: Nope.

Projects: Didn’t work on dick.

Minutia: My best wishes go out to Steve Alten’s family as they deal with health concerns for a loved one. We get spam emails from someone named Marc Adler. I hope he dies.

Activity: Running around.

Shrink’s Chair: It’s getting harder and harder not to get violently physical with someone who’s asking for it. The guy at the concert was so close to just making me lose my shit. Then I remembered that my wife wouldn’t even hear the call from the jail until morning.

Asshole(s) of the Day: The drunk dude behind me who kept whistling louder than loud and bumping into me constantly during his incoherent “dancing”. The other drunk guy in sunglasses who was dancing like an idiot for two straight hours, the whitest of the white. The bouncer with the giant roll of fat coming out from the bottom of his shirt.

True Trivia: I once responded to a money-making ad in the paper when I was in my early twenties. I sat in on a seminar on Dunwoody, GA. for an hour before I realize I was being recruited for Scientology.

Link of the Day: I guess it’s better than folks not mentioning me at all. I don’t know this guy, but he’s one of the web guys out there in LA and I am most definitely not of that circle and most likely a common target of their scorn for some time now. It’s in reference to this article, which I totally stand by.

Looking ahead to tomorrow: Tidying up my stuff before the trip!
