i wonder if that’s how astronauts do it

britney is hot (13k image)This morning I heard George Harrison died. Yes, it was expected, it’s just dreadful and at such a young age. I remember when I was 3 sitting on my parents bed listening to the radio with the pops. And hearing the news about John Lennon dying. It was a very sad time for my Father, as he was a huge Beatles/Lennon fan. Funny, how I cant remember something that happened 30 seconds ago, yet I remember that. The thing that really gets me were all the people that contacted me saying “Did u hear George Harrison died?” – Do they think I live in a box? I sure hope not. But #1, I work at a radio station, so news comes here before the public gets it (for the most part); #2 I use the internet, and news travels fast there; & #3 I am a Beatles fan, so needless to say, I am on it. Oh well, just a pet peeve. I must be in a bad mood. Emo Mat. It all just reminds me of when I got in to the Beatles pretty heavily. I guess it was Freshman year of High School. But it all really started in 7th grade when our class started studying the 60s and the music of that time. We actually had a unit specifically based on the music of the Beatles. Pretty awesome for a typical day in 7th grade. Anyways…it was 9th grade and my friend Sara Marcus started telling me all about Paul being Dead. This fascinated me. I forgot where I was going with this…so that’s it.

Yes I am frustrated. I think I have too much shit on my plate, I am just not sure if it’s a bad thing. I must be bad at that time management deal. I just don’t get people that work from 9-5 and then do nothing after work. You people blow my mind away. How boring. Stuff to do and get done:

01 Finish OMR003
02 Finish 4 bobgreene. cuts
03 Work on record/distribution contracts for label
04 Start stop-animation project with Emily
05 Redesign site
06 Work out details/contract for new house with Laura
07 Plan December Vacation
08 Be nicer to those less fortunate

Have you heard those Durex Condom commercials on the radio? They are funny as fuck. Highlights include: “I don’t know where I end and she begins” / “I felt like he was going to crush my ribs” / “She felt like warm marshmallows” – Yes, these lines were all spoken in the commercials. It’s not that bad, it’s just really odd to hear on a radio commercial. Gotta love it. Go get laid. And put on a Beatles record too.

no wonder your short stubby hairy ass doesn’t get any

Lilfeetnik: powdered pussy goodness

If I am ever that lucky to get married, I will not drive my parents nor anyone involved nuts. It will be simple. And effortless and not a fiasco. I will not burden anyone with anything. However, I do expect copious amounts of gifts and stuff from Ikea. But my vacation time got approved. And I just remembered I get 5 sick days as well, and I have yet to use one of them! So I may have to use some of them soon. Woooo!

There�s been a new Anthrax threat in Jersey, Sig�s been working overtime covering this The Anthrax cases have spread to Scotch Plains, everyone�s on red alert.

So listen:

This is from an email from my college roommate from my freshman year sent me. That girl, I love a lot and she is living a very cute little domestic married life. Cute cute cute. Cute Jules.

�So, I made a chocolate cake from the box (homemade by Pillsbury). I added an egg and I mixed it, I swear. When I took it out of the oven, I cut a slice and there was actually an entire hard-boiled egg inside. Hmmm… Tune in next time: Julie does laundry…Does it go with darks? Does it go with whites? I know, I know…you can’t take the suspense…�

So that�s kind of funny, admit it. But then I�m talking with my mother who relates this story:

My father has step-brothers and sisters, like 8 of them or something, who are renowned throughout the heartland for their stupidity. They are a tribe of very pretty, very vacant, very trashy people. They are beauty queens and baseball stars, their head consist of Swiss cheese. I mean the REALLY holey kind. Anyways, one of them one time made a pie (for the sake of the story, we�ll call it pumpkin) and read the directions that said �When the knife comes out clean, you know the pie is ready.� So she made the crust, gently laid a knife down in the crust, and then poured the filling on top. So, there was a knife baked into the middle of the pie.

Dude! No wonder my relatives think I�m a rocket scientist, just for holding down a job that doesn�t involve a gas station! You can maybe see now why family holidays, weddings, and get-togethers are so fun/painful.

My Overhand Serve Was Shit Anyway

I. Hurt. My. Back. This is the topic for today, I am in pain.

I‘d like to think I am cute and popular and stalk-worthy enough that someone pulled a Monica Seles move on me, because it certainly feels as if I have a knife sticking in the back of my neck. In actually, I sat up in bed this morning and heard a loud pop. I’m pretty sure this can’t be good, I feel like my head isn’t really attached anymore, and my whole body hurts.

Tonight, Tonight, Tonight. Whoa-Ho. Gonna Make It Right

Tonight is my office Holiday party. Anyone who wants to crash, it�s at the Marriot in Chantilly.

Suckas! Saturday! Vegetables! I am THERE!

PS

George, you know… you were my favorite.

regret (5k image)I‘ve been trying to produce THEBOBGREENE. for a few weeks now. I am working on 4 cuts off his CD. It is coming along, but it’s becoming more and more of a struggle cos the only time frames I typically get are blocks of 2-3 hours. I wish I could have blocks of 8-12 hours. I just don’t have THAT kind of time. Production is coming along. The patch bay is full and that is a good sign. I pulled out the BLUE BOX as well. Those MXR pedals do wonders. I get in to this flow and then it’s time to go to bed or I need to go out or I need to finish up other work. It’s an ongoing process that’s becoming more and more frustrating. I don’t like this. Cos it is what I enjoy the most. Why is that, that I prioritize this way. What a fucked up world. It’s cos of the anthrax. Everything is cos of the anthrax. Joey Belladonna is god. At least what I have done is something I like. I am not sure what he’ll think. Most of what I’ve done so far is quite minimal. And one track I’ve already over produced the hell out of it. It’s like “This Must Be the Place-THEBOBGREENE_MELODY.” Or something like that. I’ll still make a rough mix CD for Daniel tonight or tomorrow. I just don’t feel it’s there. And Allison needs something to work with for the artwork. Hmmm. Arg. It will happen. Yes. I am sure of it.

I did at least put in my time for my vacation in late December! Turns out the way Christmas works that my 5 day vacation will end up being almost 10 days with all the weekends and other holiday’s work gives us. Nice timing bucko. And the Christmas (or Holiday, for those PC fuckheads) Party is next Thursday. I even have a date. The apocalypse is near when Mat has a date. What the fuck.
