|Sitting around the house
I'm sitting around the house listening to music. I have so much music I've downloaded that I haven't even listened to, hours and hours of it. I feel like I have to "slog through" it all. I don't know why. Nothing ill will come from my failure to listen to the entire Jefferson Starship catalog.
I hung out with my brother the last two nights, now he's moving to England. Thursday night, it was at a party with all his co-workers. I started talking to these two women, both of whom ended up having to go out to speak to their mothers, then came in and complained about how annoying it was that they had to talk to their moms every day. I suggested that they just NOT talk to the moms every day and they reacted like I had suggested taking a trip to Jupiter on a magic carpet! They were both grown women, I don't get it. Is this a common thing? I told them it wasn't "emotionally healthy" and that it was "time to cut the umbilical cord." Probably could have chosen my words better but maybe they needed to hear this, and who better to hear it from than some random dude they have absolutely no reason to trust?
I had a terrible hangover all day friday, but I managed to make it out again to another party way out in queens. Everyone was playing "beer pong." I don't get drinking games. Just have a drink! Anyway, the hangover just got worse after that and didn't go away until noon today, I need to find some social activities to do that don't give me a hangover!

|Back in New York
Feel like I'm in a weird time warp. I'm basically exactly where I was personally when I moved here in 1998, except living by myself, and not with 3 roommates and 2 cats in a "3 Bedroom" (size of 1 bedroom) apartment. I have a short beard and couple more pounds. That's about it. Where did the last 12 years go? Still have all my hair, if I shave the beard I can just tell people I'm 21.

|News from other blogs
Got this message on facebook from someone I didn't remember who I apparently went to Junior High with for 1 year:
"I was in your spanish class! Were you part of the crew who changed the clock in Ms. Page's class so we could stay longer? I was wondering if you know anyone else from our school too? I have found Kristina Young, Putri Izwah, Geetha, and had spoken to Hee-Sun Cho a few years back and she was in Virginia going to Law school. But that is all I know of right now.Did you know Andrew, Erin, Ted, or Martha? Do you know where any of them are now?
Also I am a fan of Mafia wars and farmville...do you play? Do you want to join my mafia?
I don't remember a single one of these other people either. Andrew, Erin, Ted, Martha? Putri Izwah? Geetha? There were a lot of Indian people in my school but those names aren't ringing a bell. Is this the kind of memory you have when you abstain from drinking and recreational drugs? I remember the clock thing, so I know this isn't a spam (except we changed it so we could leave EARLIER. Why would we want to stay longer?).

|World's most annoying gay guy
On my flight last night I was seated a few rows away from the world's most annoying gay guy. I think he had been drinking during the entire flight, because I didn't notice him until near the end, when they said we would be landing in about an hour and a half, and he yelled out, "Hour and a half, bitches!" He then spent the entire rest of the flight yelling at the top of his lungs such gay witicisms as the following, all of which are actual quotes...
"I am wasted bitches!"
"I need a cigarette, bitches! Who else needs a cigarette!"
"I live in the East Village, bitches!"
"I am a homosexual bitches!"
"Dick dick dick I love dick!" (he actually said that!)

|Funny joke on full house
Hey, here's a funny joke I just saw on the show full house. Ok, let me set it up. Uncle Joey, Uncle Danny and Uncle Jesse are playing a 3 on 3 basketball game against a team coached by Kimmy Gibbler. DJ is their coach. Before the game, everyone jokes about how Uncle Jesse is bad at basketball. DJ tells Jesse not to shoot, but he can be their "defensive specialist."
DJ: "That means you'll be gaurding their teams highest scorer."
Uncle Jesse: "Who's that?"
DJ: "Whoever you'll be guarding."
That's a pretty good one for Full House right?

|My Review of the 1955, 1970, 1977, 1988, 1989 and 1990 Emmy Awards
I am making a commercial for the emmy awards at my job, so I have been going back and watching a bunch of old Emmy award shows. I have to say, the Emmy awards are a lot better than I would have thought. Normally I would never watch them because like most award shows, it seems really boring. The only one I ever really enjoy watching is the grammies, because they have a lot of musical performances, even though they always give the awards to shitty music. But it seems like with the emmys, they actually make an effort to make the show a little bit funny, unlike the oscars. Also, nobody takes themselves as seriously, and when they do, it's really funny, because it's just for being on LA Law (man, they won a lot of emmys).
The 1955 emmys were actually pretty fun. Steve Allen was the host. He was best host of all 6 of the shows I watched. Second best was 1970, co-hosted by Dick Cavett and Bill Cosby. The WORST was 1990, hosted by Jay Leno. He kept making the shittiest jokes about the Persian Gulf war. Here is one:
"Where do these people over there get all the flags to burn? I bet there's some american businessman over there who's like, if you burn one crate of flags this week, I'll get you another one for half off!"
The weirdest host was Robert Blake, for 1977. He makes TWO gay jokes. I didn't realize they had gay jokes in 1977. He makes one about Liberace, then a little while later apologizes for it, saying "Liberace is a classy gentleman and sometimes I get loose and say things that are out of line."
Another weird thing is that certain people kept popping up, even with the 11-year gap in tapes of shows that I had. Bea Arthur makes an "I'm so shocked" face and gets up and wins in 1977, then makes the exact same face when she gets up and wins in one of the the later 3 (they've all run together in my mind.) The muppets are in almost every one of these things. In 1970, Big Bird presents an award, (There had been a KFC ad in almost every commercial break, so Dick Cavett ad libs, "I'd hurry up with that, I think I see Colonel Sanders in the audience".) Kermit and Fozzy present in '77. Then, in '88, instead of the muppets in the "puppet spot," we get Alf, who makes a bunch of terrible jokes that nobody laughs at. I guess they learned their lesson from that one, because Miss Piggy and Kermit are back the next year. Then the year after that, there's a tribute to dead Jim Henson.
Highlights that I can remember:
1955: Everyone is smoking in the audience. EVERYONE. Also, Danny Thomas is making his presentation and says, "There is a terrible joke on the teleprompter that I'm not going to read." Host Steve Allen jokingly complains that he isn't winning any awards.
1970: Every commercial is either for Kentucky Fried Chicken or Marlboro Cigarettes. Jay Leno joke: "What, they couldn't sell any ad time to 'eating the bloody shit of an AIDS patient?'" Dick Cavett makes a joke, "Racquel Welch and John Wayne starred together in a TV movie this year. What a great idea, to combine two things america loves. Sexual frustration and hatred of Indians." Co-host Bill Cosby jokingly complains that he isn't winning any awards. Mary Tyler Moore looks great.
1977: Nominated for best variety special: Doug Henning. I had seen pictures of this guy but holy fuck! What the fuck was he all about? Jesus Christ. Barry Manilow wins one and says "I'm freaking out!" Presenter Don Rickles makes a million black jokes. He keeps calling LeVar Burton 'Kunta Kinte" and says "If you get mad, don't throw a spear at me." Mary Tyler Moore is getting kind of wrinkly.
1988-1990 Tracey Ullman wins like 15 emmys. During every acceptance speech, she does an impression. First, she does one about how people in New York talk back stage versus people in LA. Then she imitates Julie "Marge Simpson / Rhoda's Friend" Kavner while Julie is standing next to her, looking annoyed. Then she does an impression of all the writers on her show telling her that the skits "aren't funny enough." Mary Tyler Moore's wrinkles are gone, and her mouth has become enormous.

|a good school
I have been looking up info on public schools in LA. There is a website where parents and students can "review" their schools. Here is a review from one of the schools, Virgil MIddle School on Vermont:
Posted November 19, 2007 - Virgil is a great school alot of people say we are bad kids and we don't know nothing. Thats all lies!!! We learn and yeah we are not the richest school but we rewspect our territory! we aren't ashamed we represent virgil. And we do have after school activities like cheer,drill, soccer, basketball, football, softball,hip-hop,and many other things. So before people people talk they need to go to our and see that we are not bad. We have respect for our school and others need to have respect for us!

|review of the new rambo movie
I saw the new Rambo movie tonight. Well, I saw the first half of it. A bunch of mean guys are killing people. Then rambo and a bunch of soldiers start shooting at them. Then, if you can believe this shit, I fell asleep. I woke up and rambo was walking through a cornfield, and the credits started to roll. For some weird reason, the rhythm of all the shooting put me to sleep. When I walked out, everyone was saying how awesome the movie was, so I guess it's pretty good.

|new horrible thing my body is doing
I smell like a skunk. What the hell? This morning when i woke up, i was like, man a skunk must have sprayed outside - but then when i got outside... NO SKUNK SMELL - it was only in my bedroom. Then, later I was in this woman's office today, and she was like, do you smell something, like a skunk so i was like, i'll check the hall. i walked out into the hall and she was like, oh, now the smell's gone. I had to have a conversation standing five feet outside the door because she asked me not to go back in.
