What an amazing weekend, hell it's been a good week. Started off with Roundeye at the Double Door on Monday. The Crew at Mullen's and the Red Line on Wednesday, Local H at the Double Door Friday night, and last night I hit the Gin Mill, Buffalo Wild Wings, the Double Door, and Liar's Club. Awesome.

So anyway, the quote's what Kevin from Suffrajett said to me last night after I told him that Jack Daniels and I were well acquainted. He was tending bar at Liar's and I demolished my third/fifth(?) Jack and Coke and he gave me this look like wtf? He's like you good? I'm like yeah, he replies I bet. That's when I told him Jack and I were good friends.
As much fun as I had this week, going back to work in that hell hole is going to suck. I am so depressed about it I don't even want to think about it, it's not happening, tomorrow's not coming. Where is my damn sugar mama? Tell me dammnit! Oh and the Bears, fuck, what can I say, at least the season's over. When's Cubs Spring Training start?
Hmmm...I have to shake that. Okay. So yeah, what else? I feel like I got a decent amount of things done during the break. Went to shows, hung out, relaxed, watched a lot of flicks, beat Ghost Recon, read a little, and thought about shit, a whole lot. Maybe too much. I still have to fix up basement, work on a few things here, and start fuckin' writing. As Shaun of the Dead would say, I have to sort out my life.
I'm going to chill out for the next month or so, can't make any promises beyond that, but I've got shit to work through. Tiff mentioned to a couple of us last night that she's always gone out with the "same guy". Appearance wise, that they were all pretty much the same. I have friends like that too, always going for the same "type". For some reason the same type of conversation/topic kept coming up and it got me thinking, my last X amount of psuedo-relationships have also been with the same girl. Long story short, she's always been the embodiment of trouble. She's unavailable, wild, reckless, a pain in the ass, always a looker, but always in some sort of "situation" as well. Once again I'm finding myself drawn to the SAME type of girl, a hellcat, it really boggles the mind. This time's going to be different, I'm going to quit before it even gets there. (assuming it would) I'm done...with a lot of things.
I believe I saw Local H 15 times in 2004, one of my better years, I have to check but I probably went over the 100 mark this year. Sickening, I know. Saw Suffrajett four times and Localjett once. Heh. Cypress Hill once, For All I Care..., and Roundeye a few times each. Dozens of other local bands and performers as well. My favorite shows of the year were Local H on New Year's, the Fritz's Corner Show, the Localjett show, Scott Lucas acoustic, and Suffrajett at the Bottom Lounge. Cypress always kicks ass as well.
The crew, we've went through some shit, always some sort of drama, but whatever happens in 2005, we had some great times in '04.
The H'ers, fucking great times, we're sure to have some more.
Grace, what can I say, we've had some good times and thanks for being there. You know I've got your back. Luv ya. Jon, you guys are awesome together, but try not to talk so much ok? Dewey, I think we're better friends than either of us realize. Bibby, it's always fun chatting with you, we don't do it enough, and I'm sorry I missed your ONE call. Heh. Corrine, glad I'm getting to know you better this year, our conversations are always interesting to say the least. You still owe me a song. Jeannie, I hope you guys have a blast. We don't talk enough these days, but it's all good, we'll be in touch. Kris, you're always fun, and one of my newly found antagonists. It's never a dull moment. I didn't realize how much I missed Liar's until last night. Swanie, I know you had a rough year, hang in there. Things will get better. Some of you, I'm looking forward to getting to know better. The rest of you, what the hell happened, where are you?
As usual, I probably haven't seen the best movies of the year yet, but my favorites in no particular order: Spider-Man 2, Touching the Void, Collateral, hmmm there has to be more movies right? 9/11 was good but not really a fave per se. Saw was good, haven't seen a horror flick startle me in a while. Shaun of the Dead was lots of fun.
TV: The Shield, 24, Arrested Development, Law and Order, The Simpsons. Can't wait for new Family Guys.
Game of the Year. Hmmm? Probably have to give it up to Halo 2. Story, graphics, gameplay, it's friggin' Halo. Followed by Ghost Recon, GTA:San Andreas, Full Spectrum Warrior, Ninja Gaiden, Hitman Contracts and Def Jam:Fight for New York.
