    the only thing i love more than rock n roll 

    are good stories about rock n roll.

    currently im reading nick tosches’ “unsung heroes of rock n roll”

    which is about the pioneers of the genre. country, blues, and rockabilly people.

    but i have no attention span at all so i flipped on netflix and see a doc called

    Last Days Here about a band called Pentagram who ive never heard of.

    and its about their singer who looks not only like hes about to die

    but has already died and is rotting on the bone.

    he sits around doing heroin and crack in his parents house and lets down this young guy

    who is trying to help him get the band back together.

    its all the things you want out of a movie: ups, downs, surprises, setbacks, and more surprises.

    i turned it off 3 times because parts of it reminded me of tough times ive had with friends who were self destructive

    but i kept putting it back on because i wanted to see what was gonna happen.

    this is the reason al gore invented netflix streaming.

    im so happy i kept with it.

  2. just finished freaks and geeks 

    Freaks and Geeks

    never saw it before.

    loved how it mixed the stoners and disco peeps and hippies all together

    cant believe how many good songs they got on the show

    loved all the characters

    cant believe no one has tried to do a reboot of this.

    “the difference between men and women” 

    the difference between men and women
    but seriously, women dont want men who cry

    lets be real.

    they may want us to be in tune with our emotions

    and capable of being more than orgasmic, pissed, or hurt

    but do you really want us tearing up

    misting up

    choking up

    and downright crying with the frequency of a woman?

    something tells me the answer is

    hell to the no.

    we’re here to be strong,

    we’re here to provide and protect

    and to look sexy in a speedo.

    got it.

  5. was thinking about trimming the palm fronds of my soul 

    runyun

    but i left work a tad early because i was illin

    screwed up and ate two dayquils at 6am this morning because i didnt sleep well.

    dayquils + xbi poison = the madness of king tony

    youre better off just experiencing the experience when you feel like you have the flu

    especially if its not the flu but instead something minuscule and simply irritating.

    bad girl didnt think i would be home so early so i caught her trying to sneak into the crib by loosening the screws to the screen behind the french door windows.

    can i help you? i said as she jumped to attention, startled.

    i have the key, i can just let you in, i said.

    she acted like she had no idea what i was talking about.

    i assure you, i said, theres very little of actual value in my apartment

    baseball cards, tape recordings, magazines, unread books,

    decades old rock t shirts with the glitter of the dates i escorted probably still tucked away in the seams.

    i dont want the stuff she said, gold tooth shining in the sun.

    well, i promise you theres zero value beneath this flanel shirt, i said

    keeping my distance

    wondering where my neighbors were

    snot sealing in my nose.

    life is priceless, agent, she said

    and climbed up my palm tree like a squirrel.

    and could still be up there for all i know

    for all i care.

    awwww this is sweet 

    i have no probs with Lebron.

    i left my hometown, the place where i had a great childhood.

    i woulda told everyone to kiss my ass if they said oh you have to stay here.

    did he handle it in a dumb way? yes.

    could he have been the hero to cleveland and the most beloved man in all the midwest

    sure.

    but not all of us give a crap about approval.

    we just wanna drive the lane and

    bring it home.
