    my ipod is stuck on Lock mode 

    as in i went running last night down the streets of sunset blvd because im training for something the xbi may or may not be involved in and i put that bad boy in Lock mode and when i was done i pulled my headphones out while it was still in lock mode and as you know if you pull out your headphones it Pauses

    and also as you know, once its in Lock mode youre screwed you cant do anything if it refuses to accept the slide as an Unlock. i slide it to the left, i slide it to the right, it remains locked.

    but i have this iHome ipod alarm clock radio port thing. you put your ipod on it and it will play the music. so i put it on there and it will let me go to Songs. so now its playing all of the songs in my ipod which will suck when we get to the H’s for Howard Sterns as those are 3-5 hour commercial free shows.

    so it has been decided that i go to the apple store to get it fixed.

    last night i took clipper girl to the rock show. but the rock show didnt have my name on the list.

    quelle embarrassing lemme tell you. especially when you have on a goofy hat and shorts. and a snoopy wearing a cubs shirt shirt. thinking youre the man. after a few very nice emails things with the rock show have been resolved and i wrote to the young cheerleader to invite her to tonights performance and she has yet to write back.

    at that point i realized that there needs to be an all access pass that goes for all access to any show in LA and make those puppies go for something reasonable like $200k and see how many people scoop those fuckers up.

    and i’ll tell you what. then i might be motivated to make some serious money in this lifetime.

    but it wont be from writing books. check this shit out from Buzzmachine

    One-third of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives. …
    58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school.
    42% of college graduates never read another book.
    80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year.
    70% of US adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years.
    57% of new books are not read to completion.
    Most readers do not get past page 18 in a book they have purchased.
    Customers 55 and older account for more than one-third of all books bought.

    shocking, but i’ll admit, i dont read many books nowadays.

    LAist was on fire today – just sayin
