    problem with these gray skies is its hard to fly around 

    speaking of which, if you plan on using the subway without paying i havent seen any cops checking tickets in months.

    which might explain the increase of people taking their bikes onto the subway during rush hours which is strictly against the policies.

    found out today that jules asner is leaving my favorite channel, e! – it made me sad. jules was my favorite e! personality next to howard stern.

    she seemed smart. i liked that.

    america, im bored. you dont want your helicopter pilots bored. not xbi ones. people start doing stupid things.

    wanna hear a secret?

    bet you do.

    wanna hear my deepest darkest secrets?

    doubt it.

    ok heres a secret. yes i live in hollywood. yes i live in california. yes i live in america. these things dont always add up to sunny and beautiful and wonderful and magical.

    many times they add up to the same old bullshit going on in your town.

    ive traveled the world and many nights ive ended up at mcdonalds or kfc even though the lady next door might have been making chicken for 800 years, still i go to the colonel.

    here in hollywood people still buy their cds from Borders, their clothes at Ross, and their shoes at Sears. we dont take advantage of Melrose Blvd. the way we should, we dont bang gongs the way we ought to, and worse of all we dont jump into the ocean – or even in some cases – look at the fucking sea the way we thought we would.

    we just fly around and work and hustle and go home and light up and flip on the same crap that you do whether you are living in des moines or detroit or debuque. it’s disgusting. i dont want to be a pinhead no more.

    i want to fully take advantage of this advantage that i have and i want to report to you what its all about.

    some guy speculated in the office today that if horry’s shot had gone down that thered be a riot in the streets of la. the fellow was immediately dismissed cuz nobody riots in the streets of la unless some white cop is bashing the brains out of a brotha in an import.

    only other time that people get up in arms is when it rains here. and they only get nutty in that case if they are a tv newsman at the top of the hour.

    paul, im standing here at the corner of crenshaw and slauson and it’s raining. fred can you pan down a little. see im in an actual puddle.

    last minute laker shots do not create much of anything other than a high five from a bored blogger to an nba cheerleader, but only because we like game sevens.

    floor pie + the girl of my dreams + jeff coop + brett lamb
