The last ten days of my summer so far.
This weather is ridiculous. Grey overcast clouds, rain, sun, clouds,
wind, more clouds, sun, rain and so forth. I'm stuck in limbo
clothing wise. The other day I went out for a walk in a winter jacket
because of the cloudy-rainy-ness. Then after I started walking, it
became sunny any warm, and people must have thought I was
a nut-bar for wearing and furry wool jacket in the midst of summer.
The weather channel is going to be obsolete soon.
It's impossible to predict the weather system here.

This is my dad and the awesome new stairs he built with the same hammer and drill I use to confuse him.

My younger sister (15 yo) used my name/email to enter one of your FREE bikini-give-away contests on cosmopolitan.com, because I am of the age of majority and she is not. Apparently, this contest indicated that there was 'NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.' However, when she completed the contest form it indicated that I was now subscribed to Cosmopolitan Magazine, and would subsequently be billed $26.00. I have canceled this subscription, yet I am unsure if I will still be sent an issue/be billed for said issue. I do not want any issues of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and thus, do not wish to be charged any monetary amount.
If I am billed after contacting you at this email address, I will take matters further. This is due to the fact that you stated on your contest form that 'NO PURCHASE (was) NECESSARY.' Hence, you flagrantly lied, and your policy is incongruent and misleading, which is unlawful for a company such as yourself.
Please do NOT send me Cosmopolitan, and do NOT bill me.
Thank you kindly,

I just uncovered literature of an unfortunately hip dream I had on April 1st, 2008. I realize this is one of the most hipster dream you could probably have. All that's missing are some records, PBR and a fixed-gear bike. My mind might have collapsed under such irony.
"I had a dream last night about Allen GInsberg. I just finished doing a History essay, so I guess he's been on my mind lately. So I am at an outdoor market, it's late in the afternoon in Spring. There's a lot of people, and as I meander around, I find this one tent that looks like an Indian market stand. There's a man inside who I recognize, and identify him as Allen Ginsberg.
He doesn't look like the young, short haired Ginsberg, nor the older, balding, bearded, mountain-man Ginsberg with glasses. He looks more like actor David Cross, just as himself, but with a beard. I call over to him, we talk briefly about something and he whips out this weird bong from under a strange cloth with patterns, like burlap, only, with a silky texture? A large crowd gathers as he goes to light it. He sets his beard on fire.
We go inside a building, and end up in a reddish-colored salon-type drawing room. His beard is not on fire anymore. There are old photographs everywhere on the walls and bookshelves full of books. I sit down on the corner of a chair. It looks like an old black one my family owned (it was from Ikea. Go figure). A guy about my age, wearing a black & white checkered shirt, plops in the chair casually, as if he owned it. He introduces himself. His name was something like Himberg, or Ghilbert, Hilmborg, Hamgirb. Something odd, and similar to Ginsberg. Had the letters H and G for sure.
Anyway, turns out Allen Ginsberg was my teacher. I was in some kind of classroom, apparently. Then my younger cousin Lucy came into the room, and we started eating Cheez-It crackers. Too many, in fact. When we were leaving and walking home, we both mentioned that we felt really sick from the Cheez-Its."
Then I woke up and ate breakfast as if this had never happened.

Bad Habits was finally completed April 23rd. Here's a screen shot from the classroom scene. I'm in the process now of sending it out to a number of festivals in North America. There were a lot of moments during the production of this film where I really did not want to continue, but I am so glad I came through and completed it. The audience reaction of laughs and "ews" is exactly what I wanted.
