That thing I do

Posted by Mick under Mastodon Dethklok, Personal, Scripts (No Respond)

It’s been a good day.  It’s been a real good day.
I slept late.  When I finally roused myself from bed, I was greeted by a pot of coffee and a bowl of “piggies”, Tara’s term for little smoked sausages wrapped in pieces of crescent roll, which is then baked to golden brown perfection.  They are [...]

In which Cop Out is discussed

Posted by Mick under Film, Personal (No Respond)

The previous time I walked through the living room, the Olympics were on.  I just went to refill my tea (an Earl Grey, because I’m a pimp like that), and I noticed that Jeopardy is on.  I recall this from last week as well.  It seems that nothing can stop the onslaught of the Olympics [...]

It’s a “laser”

I’m going to get a subscription to Time magazine.
It’s not as expensive as you think.  56 issues a year, at a cover price around $4.50, that’s like $252.  But now, for a limited time only (a limited time to get Time) I could have it delivered to my mailbox for $20.  They’ll even throw in [...]

Why does the devil have all the good music?

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

There are so many things I could talk about today.  Stuff that happened today, like the controversy over red-band trailers online (I’m for red-band trailers online, I’m against concerned parents who bitch).  Stuff that happened earlier in the week that I didn’t get a chance to talk about (and won’t mention here because then I’ll [...]

When the levee breaks

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

Some of you may remember this.  A few days ago, a week, I don’t know, I mentioned that my movie watching had been decreasing.  I’m not watching much at home, and I’m missing my trips to the Alamo Draft House.  Well, that’s about to change.  I spent 20 minutes buying tickets tonight.  The next two [...]

Ice Dancing

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

This was one of those nights when I didn’t feel like doing anything.  And I didn’t.  Until just now.
It was a decent enough day at work, the usual frustrations, nothing more.  A few issues where I actually had to stop and think about the feelings I was having and how I should act on them.  [...]

Won’t get fooled again

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

Right now, I’m supposed to be working on my script.  And I am, I really am.  In a weird sort of way.
I’m having a hard time getting started, but I’m almost there.  I couldn’t figure out what to do, nothing was working, so I took a field trip to the living room and watched some [...]

From Prine to Schneider

But your flag decal won’t get you
Into Heaven any more.
They’re already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don’t like killin’
No matter what the reason’s for,
And your flag decal won’t get you
Into Heaven any more.
I’m not necessarily making another political statement there.  I like John Prine, the song came on, it struck a chord, I put [...]

On my way to where the air is sweet

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

This has been a great day.
It wasn’t an earth-shattering day.  And yet, it was a great day.  Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  Some of the parts were rather awesome.
The immediate relief came from the fact that this was the last day of “the class”.  The class of which we [...]

Konnichiwa, bitches!

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!
There was a plane crash in Austin today.  Early reports indicate that a deeply troubled man set fire to his house and then flew a small plane into a building that houses, among other things, an IRS office.  It’s a tragedy.  I think we can all agree that [...]
