Insight

So, if you've seen Inside The Actor's Studio, you'll recognize these questions. They originated on a French talk show hosted by Bernard Pivot. It might be kind of a cop out, but I figure it's a bit of insight in to me. Perhaps I will expand each answer in to a separate post. Because, you know, I know you really want to see how fucked up my brainbucket really is.

Without further ado...

  1. What is your favorite word? Creativity
  1. What is your least favorite word? Nigger
  1. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? To know my work has inspired others to be creative.
  1. What turns you off? Mediocrity
  1. What is your favorite curse word? Fuck
  1. What sound or noise do you love? A child's laughter
  1. What sound or noise do you hate? The dentist's drill
  1. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Game show host
  1. What profession would you not like to do? Police Officer
  1. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "No, I get it. About that whole Old Testament thing...I fucked up. Total dick move on my part."

There's probably a few tales here and there that would take me deeper in to each answer. The beauty of the show is that the guests don't really get to provide that much context to their answers either, unless James gives them the latitude to do so. Maybe I will just leave these here without context or backstory. It might be kind of fun. But knowing me, I'll dive in to each of them in turn at some point or another.

I'd love to go deeper now, but I have to be honest--I walked more today than I have in months. So my ass is dragging. I'm going to take it to bed now.

Peace out!

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 …
