Still Waiting to Exhale

OK. I'm not sure what that movie really has to do with anything at this point in my life.

HOWEVER...I promised you a thrift post this weekend. And I'm here to say....the weekend ain't over yet. ..but it's not looking good.

I spent most of yesterday finishing the edits on the current movie project (and it's done, thankyouverymuch). I also got my hair cut (and it looks rather dashing imustsay).

Today was spent watching it snow this morning. In between burning DVD copies of the movie for my dad to send to our family in KY, I got to FINALLY (in bigboy letters) use my snow blower today!!! Yay!

It rules. I did my driveway, and 3 of my neighbors driveways in the time it used to take me to shovel my drive. Definitely money well spent (esp. since it was about $50).

After that I chilled, watching the Studio 60... marathon on Bravo. And then we went to my mom and dad's for a bit (dropped off the DVDs, watched the movies, cried a bit), then came home. After a quick trip to the neighbors to install their roadrunner, here i sit.

Oh jeesh. I promised myself that I wouldn't let this blog turn in to one of those 'here's every detail of my life' kinds of things.

damdamdamdamdam. Oh well. Can't be helped.

I'm off to go update the TwistedZen site and the TwistedZen Projects blog with details of the movie and subsequent newspaper article that it may (or may not) generate in the coming weeks.

Have a good rest of your weekend (And I'm still going to try to get the thrift blog up in time for your Monday wake-me-up cup'a joe).

peace out,

Todd

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. So..um. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis. So...no, I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen

So...you may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
