2 Weeks to Labor Day?!

Here, again, is the usual post on how I say "Holy Shit, this year is flying by."

Updates on:

Work- Going good, but feeling a bit stale. Not that I'm not leasing a lot this month. I just feel stale about the job in general.

Facebook Mix Exchange- Last week went well. This week I'm hoping more mixes show up in the mail. If you received a mix, let me know how your experience has gone so far. Did you like it? Did you receive one that was effed up? Would you like this to be a continuing thing?

Birthday Events- I can't wait for Wednesday. All the good people of my life seem to be showing up. Danno is coming down, Lazor, Fleck and Deal, Stev, Noringo Boys, Carly, the list is never ending.

Noringo- Stay tuned....

Sexy Results- More awesome beats have been made, but nothing will advance for at least another month.

Love Life- Hung up on a dream. And as Warren Zevon says in "Poor Poor Pitiful Me"... "I don't wanna talk about it."

That is all.

Birthday Wish List

I actually didn't ask for anything for my birthday this year. Maybe it's because 1) I don't have a significant O or 2)Live alone or 3) Don't need any extra crap that I can't buy for myself.
But if I did have a wishlist of stuff... it would probably look like this.
1. Cap'n Danger Stunt Monkey

2. Cat-A-Pult

3. Cold War Unicorns (These hang me up to dry.)

4. Last Supper Long Box

6. What Would Bacon Do? Spin Folder (Clearly the goon owning this folder was too busy playing with it to get any better grades than a D+.)

7. Spanish Conversation Hearts (Corazones Dulces)

These... are truly exciting times

Yes. Movie Season is not too far away. The goods are coming finally! The end of the summer blockbuster reign is extremely fuckign nigh.

In no particular order of mass excitement:

1. Be Kind, Rewind (d. Michel Gondry- starring: Jack Black, Mos Def, Danny Glover)

2. The Darjeeling Limited (d. Wes Anderson- starring: Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman)

3. 3:10 to Yuma (d. James Mangold...meh- starring: Christian Bale, Russel Crowe, Peter Fonda)

4. Trick'r'treat (yes I'm serious... this looks kind of cool and maybe half decent. Not too many good horror movies anymore.) (d. Michael Dougerty- starring: Brian Cox, Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin)

5. No Country for Old Men (d. Coen Bros.- starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Woody Harleson)

6. There Will Be Blood (d. PT Anderson- starring: Daniel Day Lewis, Paul F. Tompkins?!?)

And I'm sure more will be sneaking up on me.

Liev Schrieber Rules!

First off, see The Ten. Not for nuthin, but one of the finer film moments of the year. I won't go into detials but all I'm gonna say is that 'Thou Shalt Not Covet They Neighbors Wife' and 'Thou Shalt Not Cover Thy Neighbors Goods' are far and away the stand-out moments of the movie. The rest are good, but the conceptual genius behind these two are genius. Great comedy. Liev Schrieber and Justin Theroux add an excellent spice to the already seasoned vets of The State and Wet Hot American Summer that are already as always on top of their A-Game.

Second, I started Catch-22 and am definitely ready for the goods it will bring me. Forcing myself to read at the very least one chapter a day to et me back in the swing of things.

Next, I'm looking into the idea of rocking Philly Car Share for several reasons. My car is falling apart. It may be cheaper than a car payment, it's Eco-friendly, and who knows what else it might offer me (I put my resume in there so maybe I can work there... it's seriously around the block from me.)
Finally, I found a good bar in West Kiladelph. And there is another rumored awesome Saucery nearby. BRING-IT-ON!
