    late night edition, 

    sunset blvd

    i know, dont be alarmed. and technically it’s sunday so i should be resting but i just got back from a long night of drinking and eating and being with super cool people and i never made it over to the wesssside to celebrate my work pal’s birthday, and even if i had a car, i dont think i woulda gone over there cuz i had been drinking and sometimes im a lightweight and sometimes i can do okay, but theres something about very good conversations and booze that fucks my shit up.

    first party was at my attorney’s house. shes got a sprawling ranch style casa up in the hills that people gawk at when they enter. she keeps it real cool though, super comfortable. it has this nice open kitchen and i leaned up against the stove a lot of the night and ate little breads and cheeses and meats and i mixed a half dozen cape cods for myself. not only is she a beautiful young woman, but she has the musical taste of a collegiate boy, so it was very easy to turn off the Ryan Adams and dig into “Pleased To Meet Me” then the Stones, then the Velvets with Nico, etc., which is always a plus.

    pleased the replacements

    so many girls have James Taylor’s greatest hits, Fleetwood Mac, Aretha, Cocteau Twins, the Cure – if youre lucky, Cat Stevens, Eagles and a few soundtracks of a play they went to or a movie that made them cry and that’s it. when i sold stereos i would get these women who would ask for a cd player and i’d show them the 100 disc-changer and they’d say, “but i dont even own 100 cds.” and i’d say, “but eventually you will.” and they’d look at the changer and they’d be thinking to themselves, “no, never will i own 100 cds.” which is why boys collect twice as many as we need, i guess.

    anna lost her match on friday against some chick, who knows, who cares. anna probably would have beaten her unranked opponent but she strained her neck and only managed to win one set. and if you wanna talk about bad cd collections, you need to look no further than our former-soviet sweetie. i dont even want to get into it, but throw out the hip hop and all thats left is pop pop pop euro-pop and more pop, and her friends are all older and super into techno so shes starting to ask me if ive heard this or that and im all, tweakers suck, beeyatch, drink some more vodka and wisen up. and i threaten them all with a classic rock photo essay but these young girls just smile and stick their tongues out and make you feel old as they walk away whistling the tune of a song youve never heard. so lets change the subject.

    this girl is 22. lives in canada and has some very nice things to say about yours truly:

    Tony is…well…I don’t really know how to explain this site. It just is. Take my word for it..this site provides hours of amusement and is updated on a daily basis (except for on the weekends when he gets lazy)

    and normally i wouldnt talk about such things (canadians), but she has a great list of movies that she likes and i say “great” because i like most of those movies too. so thanks, paganblue. gorgeous design, i must add.

    justin has had my name on his left hand links list for a little while and said that i turned him onto Internet Gossip. IG is a site i look at about once a week to see what the perves have dug up and what nonsense the cam girls are up to. anyhow, thanks slotman.

    bob owen has added me to his links list, firmly nuzzled between the worthilly-linked Max Power and the undisputed champion InstaPundit, so i feel in good company. i like the lowercase spelling of my name, but i dont mind if it is Traditionally Capitalized either. it wouldnt be the first time that i’ve been called easy. thankyoubob.

    Max Power, himself, put a link to this site in his quotes area on the left hand side, to which I need to say thank you.

    But before we go on any further, let me report to you, and let it be a lesson to you all, but JC flowed a buck to the Snoop Fund yesterday (saturday) and today (sunday), making it a total of $7 my man has stoked me with over 7 days. classic. thank you JC, youre too cool.

    Your site makes me smile or laugh out loud each day. So instead of spending my money on four or five magazines each month I paypal the internet sites I read and enjoy. Of course anna tells me that you are worth much more than the paypal pop I am able to give at this time. Yet when she whispered that to me early this morning I got the impression her thoughts were on the physical concerning you and far removed from the financial. Your connection with anna lingers in her soul, an ethereal reminder of your presence. That is one reason I will continue to return to try and learn from da man!

    Sincerely,

    JC

    how can i be the man when you’re the man?
