I know I hadn't posted on LJ in quite a while, I just never realized how long it was.
Anyone still use this thing? I may actually start to use it again. I need an outlet. Let's see...
Last night, Jamie, Nash, and myself had to go pick up Jamie's wife from downtown. I had to frive Jamie's truck. Yeah, fog, at 3am, is an awesome driving experience. That's sarcasm, by the way. Throw in the fact that downtown is so close to the Mississippi River, and it makes it even better. There were a alot of goths and vampires out by the edge of the quarter. It looked like a page out of an Anne Rice book.
D and Julie's wedding is coming up. Should be fun. The hall they rented is nice. It's somewhere in the Bywater I think. I've been elected to snap photos. Kind of nervous, but Julie bought some real nice film I suggested. Chris George, I may need help with a technical issue before it takes place.
For the most part 2006 sucked balls. Well, not totally. I'll say 55% suckage, 45% cool. Maybe even 60/40%. In no particular order of sucks/cool---there was Vegas, twice. Hollywood and Santa Monica (on the first Vegas trip), which I really liked. Multiple friends got married. I went broke for a while. Almost lost it a few times. Finally became a junior. Lost my dog. Met some really cool people. Lost touch with some really cool people. Saw the evil of heroin ( not me.) Joined the gym. Finished fixing up the house, from the storm, almost took a year. Maybe i'll add more...I'm sort of fuzzy on all of it.
I've become a fan of wine. Don't really know how or when, but I really like it. Pinot Grigio is probably my favorite, followed by Pinot Noir. Whatever it is I drank on Camp St was good, but maybe that was beacause it took so much effort to get the cork out, it just seemed really, really tasty.
The Saints....I'm at a loss for words. I'm also really anxious. I don't think the rest of America know what this would mean, if we were to go to the Big Game...ok, enough, I can't jump to far ahead on that one.
I've also become quite a fan of Asian cinema. This was kind of 2005, but I did see a lot more films in 2006. If you've never seen Oldboy , I highly reccomend it. Some other good ones I have seen is Ichi the killer, Audition, Battle Royal, and Ong Bak. Ong Bak features Tony Jaa. This kid is the next Bruce Lee. I got to see a lot of the Wu Tang flicks. It's funny to see the characters the musical group gets their names from.
Confused? I'm always confused. I analyze to much. Work, school, love, death. It's too much to think about sometimes.
Ok. Off to bed.
Blast from the past....
I found these, they made me laugh. Green Machine!
