where the day takes me
Monday. Im going to just write little bits as the day goes. As the crow flies. As the life-force drains.
Howard Stern and his wife are getting separated and its really bumming me out. Hes talking about it all morning. There is obviously pain. Wow, women keep calling up the show, crying. They are really upset. And part of me is really sad and wonders if a seemingly iron-strong marriage can break apart, what about the others? What about mine (someday)? And the other part of me is really looking forward to seeing who he screws first
Todd and I finished correcting the first draft of our action screenplay on Friday night. Drinking and correcting. We got tons done, working past midnight. Next we actually open the sucker up and see whats wrong
I hate radio commercials
I got up early this morning, after feeling vaguely shitty all weekend, and took a power walk in the Hollywood hills above my place. God, I love doing that. It was so beautiful and the view... Wish I could be back there right now. Shit. Well, at least I have my chair. Then I worked out for another half-hour. I had been really good for about 6 months until a few weeks ago when I was doing all the travelling and I just stopped. Today I start again. And while doing a play. Yeah, lets see how long I can keep this up
Why do I crave ham right now? I havent eaten pork in over 10 years. Hmm
Im reading a book I fell for 9 years ago, the author of which has for some reason not put out another book since. Trust me, I look each time I enter a book store. Its called Stone Junction by Jim Dodge. I dont much like sci-fi but it is marginally in that category. Check it out, and tell that dude to write another fucking book already
Dr. Pepper is really a fine soda. It really is
Woah, trippy. I just read that pamie started exercising again this morning after taking a few weeks off too. Damn, now the pressures on
Our screening of the short Saturday night went fairly well. Tons of people showed and everyone laughed a lot. Just afterwards, people sort of dispersed and didnt say much. Frank and I wanted like a big discussion or simply heaps of very specific praise. We talked today and realized our friends our simply not very well-mannered or effusive people. That, coupled with the fact that most of them were in it and were probably just saying, "Damn, I should have been in it more."
Yesterday M. and I went to Frys to price laptops for her, and I was struck in a big way with the spend jones. So I bought me a 25-disc CD player. I did need a new one as the other was an old single disc CD player and had long ago lost its power to display so I never knew what track was on. The new one was pretty cheap and just looks so damn cool. And 25 CDs on random provides endless possible musical combinations. Just wish I was ever home to use it
Golfer Payne Stewart just died. That sucks
Hot Chocolate: I recommend it
Wow I almost just fell asleep. I once watched a heroin dude with the nods in the subway in NYC. For 45 minutes he kept almost falling of his bench, but would wake up just in time and right himself. Eventually I left, disappointed...
Ooooh shit. Really almost fell asleep. Tea time
OK. If I spilled this hot tea on my arm, would I get workers comp?
Krime Korner: Hey, Happy Days hussy Pinky Tuscadero (Roz Kelly) was just sentenced for shooting at her neighbors pad. In a related incident, this weekend I was accosted at the 7-11 by a beat-looking woman who asked if I was an actor. She went on to tell me she played Holly on Land of the Lost. Im not sure if I believe her, but it is LA. Oh, and ha ha, Matthew McConaughey was busted for pot in Austin.
Hey! I just woke up a bit. I got a message from an agent at William Morris who read my script during the Nichol judging and liked it. Shit. OK. Ill call him tomorrow. Cant summon good phone skills today.
I really need to leave now.
The Larry King Happy
Tony sailed across the bar.And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two. There was blood and a single gun shot. But just who shot who? speaking of which. I never did learn to program my friggin VCR and gosh darnit wouldnt you know I missed the big Dallas episode, "Who Shot J.R.?". So if any of you kids caught it, please, for crissakes, tell me. Who?
