Subject:You think I'll bust back to feed they dirty ass kids. Who the fuck they think I am, Britney Spears?
Time:10:25 am.
yesterday -

I read Russell Freedman's The Wright Brothers: How They Invented the Airplane . It was OK. A little technical at times.

I read Susan Campbell Bartoletti's Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler's Shadow . It was amazing. Really interesting.

I started reading Beverly Cleary's Ramona and Her Father

I listened to Patti Rothberg's CD "Between the 1 and the 9" It was clearly a pop-folk singer tuning into the alternative rock trend of the time. Not noteworthy, but some songs were nice. Inside, Looking for a Girl, and the heavy "Up Against the Wall" are all strong tracks. I give this CD a 6/10. A lot of really bad tracks on this CD.

today -

I finished reading Beverly Cleary's Ramona and Her Father . It was OK.

I read Paul O. Zelinsky's re-telling of Rapunzel I really liked it and his artwork was great.

I also finished my annotated bibliography for Dr. Smith's class. I still have to edit it but I did my 10 annotations already.

july 5 -

I finished my Topic Paper for Prof. Tice's class. It's on video games in libraries.

july 6 -

I read Susan Campbell Bartoletti's book Black Potatoes: The Story of the Great Irish Famine, 1845-1850 It was interesting. I didn't know the Irish Famine was so harsh.

I started to talk to some new people in my classes.

I received Zena Sutherland's Children & Books in the mail. 9 dollars on a book that went for 155. Wow.

july 7 -

I read Peter Sis' The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain I thought it was OK but disorganized in presentation.

I listened to a whole lot of German songs to try to put me in the mood for Germany - Spain in the World Cup. My playlist:

klaus nomi - simple man
kraftwerk - neon lights
DAF - der mussolini
Can - Don't Turn on the Light, Leave me Alone
Nina Hagen - African Reggae
Nena - 99 Luftballons
Afrob & Ferris MC - Reimemonster
FLER - Deutscha Bad Boy
FLER - Neue Deutsche Welle

Unfortunately, it was all for naught....as Germany lost 1-0 to Spain.

I also read An American Plague: The True and Terrifying Story of the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793 by Jim Murphy. I really enjoyed this book. I found it interesting.

yesterday -

I started talking to this dude named Mike in Prof. Smith's class. He lived in Philly. We talked a lot about Philly. He seems like a pretty chill guy.

june 8 -

I finished listening to Bob Dylan's "Blonde on Blonde" . I give it a 9/10. The best tracks are Rainy Day Women #12 and 35, One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later), Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again, Just Like a Woman, Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine). This is a great album by a great musician. Very consistent. Not one song is unsatisfying.

I listened to Metallica's "Ride the Lightning" . Surprisingly, this was an amazing CD. I give it a 9/10. The best songs are Ride the Lightning, Fade to Black, and Escape. Again, like the Dylan album, not a bad song on this. I like this even better than And Justice for All or Master of Puppets. Metallica may be tools as people, but as musicians, they are tight.

I started listening to Tom Waits' CD "Franks Wild Years"

Lena came over around 2. We hung around a while and then went over to Chinatown to pick up the bus tickets to Philly. Apparently, it was 12 dollars each way, more than the website advertised it as ($10).

We then came back home and watched my cousin Darren's movie. It was really interesting and depressing. I was in a headfuck the whole night afterwards. Seeing Darren on screen made the point sink in that he is really gone...it was tough. We didn't have sex because I couldn't get hard...I just wasn't focused on anything that night.

We drank a Miller Lite....just hung around the rest of the nite. Nothing really interesting happened. We went to bed early.

yesterday -

We woke up and played some basketball at the park. I did really good after I warmed up. I think I impressed Lena. I taught her how to shoot. She started out airballing shit. She was getting better. She was a natural on defense though. I had her try to guard me once...she stayed right on me until I gave a crossover and totally busted her ankles (not literally). It was funny. I also playfully guarded her and blocked her shot once. :) It was a lot of fun. Lena wants to play bball some more with me.

We then went to Dunkin Donuts to get lunch and in my case, a huge iced coffee. Some old man spilled a coffee on the floor. I always say, old man and coffee = disaster.

We headed up to hang out with John. He seemed like an OK guy. He was very laid back...almost comatose. We hung out at his place for a while. He poured out some German beer for me and Lena that was solid. Lena told me afterwards that there was a riding whip that looked well worn in their bathroom. John's cat Lola was adorable. She played with a toy mouse a lot and ate some plants. We hung out at Outpost, this coffee shop, for awhile. Jane came by and she was a lot like John...laid back to the point of being comatose. Me and Lena ate some Sabra hummus with carrots which tasted really good. Never tried the combo before.

We headed back home and played some NES games. Mickey Mousecapade, Little Nemo: The Dream Master, and Adventure Island 2. Lena was as good as me in most of the games. That was unexpected.

We then ate dinner...watched some Jeopardy. Lena joked while she was eating ice cream and I was eating celery..how's that celery? Heh...There was also this guy on Jeopardy from Brooklyn who looked goofy. Lena told me earlier in the day about this guy from Bushwick who always shouts out Bushwick whenever people ask is anyone from Brooklyn? We made jokes about this guy saying Bushwick to every question on the show. LOL.

We then put on the MGMT album "Oracular Spectacular" and I fingered Lena.. then we put it on a second time and she gave me a blowjob. Then she had to leave so I walked her in the rain to the train station.

today -

I started reading Born to Rock by Gordon Korman. I read the first 105 pages today. It's really good.

I watched game 3 of the NBA Finals. I hope the Celtics and come back from 2-1 down.

Subject:What's yr take on Cassavetes?
Time:6:04 pm.
yesterday -

I talked to Paul. He's coming over Sunday night. We're probably going to buy a six pack and watch Ghostbusters.

today -

I finished my season (beat the game) in Kobe Bryant in NBA Courtside I was the Trailblazers and I went 82-0 and won all 15 playoff games.

I finished reading Crime and Punishment: A Graphic Novel by Korkos/Mairowitz/Dostoyevsky. I liked the adaptation. I also thought the illustrations were phenomenal and captured the spirit of the new Russia very well.

I watched two movies - Chinatown - which was OK, and The Killing of a Chinese Bookie which was really interesting and minimalistic and well shot.

Subject:"Where's New England in my life it's only cold when you sleep alone...."
Time:12:16 pm.
dec 3 -

I watched the movie Kiss Me Guido

I got a wink from a girl on OKCupid whose settings restrict anyone less than a 70% match. That sucks. She liked comics too and was attractive.

I got an e-mail from Gwen from Champion saying that we should call the parents to confirm schedules. I didn't do that yet.

dec 4 -

I watched Dazed and Confused

I finished reading Look At Me by Jennifer Egan

yesterday -

I watched the Wanda Sykes comedy special - I'ma Be Me - it was OK. It wasn't that great.

I talked to Paul. He told me that the first band at ABC No Rio kinda sucked but the last three were good. He said people were very welcoming. Almost too welcoming in that he was being hit on by jailbait.

I talked to Boesen about football and wrestling. He told me he has this sports package at his place with the NFL Red Zone channel which just airs for 7 hours a week and shows when teams are in the red zone. It's a better's paradise. We also talked about how in WWE only Americans and Canadians have held the world title.

My cousin Darren and Uncle Bob came over. I talked with them for a while and showed Darren snippets of my script.

today -

I started watching season 3 of Arrested Development

Lauren said she wanted to go out and get drinks with me sometime. Right now she's upstate for the weekend. So it should be soon, hopefully.

yesterday -

I was supposed to meet Paul at ABC No Rio and we were going to see the matinee of punk bands but he was 40 minutes late. I waited a half hour for him but then I left. When I left and was on the shuttle bus I heard that I had a voicemail from him. Bad timing. He's going to come by on Monday night.

today -

I finished watching season 2 of Arrested Development - that show is great!

I watched the final episode of season 1 of Hung - that's a great show.

I bought Mary a GG Allin and the Jabbers shirt at Trash and Vaudeville on St. Marks. It's the "Don't Talk to Me" shirt. There was a better shirt but it was 27, and this one was 22, and I'm jobless. I also thought about getting her a Sid Vicious t-shirt that looked really nice but she already has a Sid shirt.

I returned my GameShark to Videogamesnewyork for a different model...but it still doesn't support most of my games that I need help with. Boo.

I sorta watched Mickey Blue Eyes. I didn't really pay attention but I thought it was pretty funny.

I also won a playoffs with the Jazz in Kobe Bryant's NBA Courtside. I beat the Bulls 48-28 in the Finals game.

Time:1:21 pm.
sept 10 -

This was the first night of the warm weather season I slept without the air conditioner. I haven't slept it with it since.

sept 12 -

I watched the replay of Derek Jeter's 2722nd hit as a Yankee.

I watched Wrestlemania V. I'd say it was a pretty weak Wrestlemania. The best match was the main event - Hulk Hogan v. the Macho Man. The Twin Towers v. The Rockers was pretty good too.

I finished reading Mao II by Don DeLillo. All I can say is it's a perfect depiction of the post-modern novel.

I started watching The Best of Raw 15th Anniversary DVD's Disc One (1993-1997).

I finished watching season 8 of Seinfeld . My favorite episodes were The Bizarro Jerry, The Package, The Chicken Roaster, The Abstinence, The Yada Yada, The Muffin Tops. It was a pretty good season. I still think season 4 was the best so far.

I gave Annalisa a call....she was talking about how Willie was going to drive up to Mary's party and wanted her to come along, but she couldn't, it's too long a ride. But she said I should come down to Tennessee to see her. I think I might just do that if I don't get the job at the tutoring agency. If I do, I'm going to go in the winter, maybe spend Christmas with her.

I started watching the first Wrestlemania
today -

I finished watching the first Wrestlemania - it was pretty good. King Kong Bundy really impressed me at how agile he was for a 450+ pound guy. The best match was probably David Sammartino vs. Brutus Beefcake. The wrestling was top notch and the production wasn't quite up to par with later Wrestlemanias, but it was still a beacon of light in a mid-80s wrestling world.

I watched episode 9 of Hung - I really think that's a great show.

I listened to the Stilllife CD "Minutes" - the best tracks were Claptrap and 4 Trax. I'd give the album an 8.5/10. It's really good underground hip-hop from my friend Matt V.

I sent out a volunteer application to the BPL for clerical, book shelving, or computer coach opportunities.

I talked with Risa on Facebook chat....it's been ages since I heard from her. I think it's been since she graduated.

I watched Milk - what an inspiring movie - Harvey Milk is a true American hero and original. What a great film. I recommend everyone to watch this film. Sean Penn was amazing as Harvey Milk.

Listened to the UT album - "In Gut's House" - kinda abrasive noisy no wave music. Starts off with the anthemic "Evangelist" and then kind of tapers off until the end, where the strong tracks "Mosquito Botticelli" and "Landscape" are found. Overall: 6/10

Talked with Boesen for a couple of hours.

Smoked a cigarette (Marb Medium 100)
