are you amplified to rock?

yup, it's lith...yup it's a bull, yup it's a square....lithbull (10k image)Last night was a nice one. A little bumpy in that me and the Pops had to finish up my taxes. The problem was with my Schedule C form. We werent sure if i had to spread the business expenses over three years as they were not disposable items. Turns out, after talking with the soon to be brother-in-law, that we didnt need to and i will get the full refund at one time. Fuck yeah. Scott rules. Maybe I will have the extra money to buy the DVD-Home Theatre bit. I like that small Sony one. Fuck Bose. And it wasnt too expensive either. Eh. Who knows…so while I was doing taxes Emily was doing her crossword puzzle (me and her started earlier that day) with my Mother while she watched TV. When me and the Pops were done Emily and myself watched that new John Cusack movie, “Serendipity.” It was pretty decent, but only Cusack decent. He is the king of romantic comedies. If only his character in the movie said his favorite movie was “Say Anything.” After the movie my mother had suggested that Emily and myself go dumpster diving down the street. There was this cool lamp she thought i’d like. And I did. It was babyblue and glass. It was a hanging lamp. I really like it…I just need to solder a plug to the end. No biggie. I havent been dumpster diving since me and Gabe furnished our apartment in Tennessee that way.

Today after dropping off my first roll of 6×6 film (Yeah!), I drove to the post office with my father to drop off my taxes. Funny how many people were late like me. I am so e-filing next year. Fuck wasting paper. Fuck waiting around for ages for the return. At least I get my return is directly deposited. And after we got back i talked to Allison for half an hour about my trip to Louisville. Me and Emily are gonna fly down to Derby in two weeks. Southwest has a deal where you pay on round trip and your friend (Emily) flies free. That’s 118 bucks. It’s 116 bucks if you dont have a friend. So if you dont have a friend, you really just save 2 bucks. In other words, your nonexistant friend is worth 2 dollar. 2 DOLLARS! Why is the theme today John Cusack? I wonder if he would require his friend to lend him his video camera to get some help moving out of an apartment. Who knows. I am just excited to see Jackie and Allison. Hopefully this time, i’ll remember which day I come back on. And Daniel better come or he smells bad.

I got the new Jon Spencer Blues Explosion record. It’s could quite possibly be my most favorite JSBX record yet. Perfect melodies. Perfect mix of blues and rock and subtle hints of funk. The way rock was meant to be. At least in the equation i like. Do yourself a favour.

scott thompson is god - and he's a canadian - (10k image)Last night I saw KIDS IN THE HALL at the Constitution Hall. It was my first time there and i was quite impressed. I only knew that Tori Amos used to play there. So anyways. Before we went there we went to this Mexican restaurant. It was really good and we got Payaya or something like that. But it sucked cos we got double charged for it or something or the menu was all wacked. So that kinda sucked. And reinforced the idea that i decided a week ago about not going out to eat much at all for this quarter. I think I am just gonna leave my credit card at home now. Money is the root of all evil. And it smells bad. So yeah, the show was great. I was waxing nostalgia all night. Vivid memories of Gabe and his worship of Gay Canadian humor is the best. I’ve never seen someone who wanted to be so gay and so Canadian at the same time. I miss my Gabe. And his love for Scott Tompson. And the Kids in the Hall made fun of American’s with their damn excessive use of the flag. I am almost ready to put an Afghanistan flag on my car. Almost. Damn was that skit funny.

So tonight i am gonna finish up my taxes with the Pops. I was supposed to get dinner with Laura. But i had to bail cos of the tax deal. It’s weird, since she’s left Lara has seen her twice and I havent seen her at all. Pooh. I think we’re gonna see each other on Sunday or Monday. Or maybe Tuesday to watch the Osbournes, too. But I gotta make sure my writeoffs for my label are done correctly. And i talked to my sister’s soon-to-be husband, cos he’s a tax dude accountant and he said all my writeoffs were legit. So if it all works out i’ll get back over $1,000. Plus the $700 for my Federal junx. Woooo! Extra cash. I think i am not gonna buy a new camera or car, but save it this time. Speaking of saving, i am excited that the ROTH IRA fund that i’ve been doing for two years now is going to extend their limit to $3,000 for next year. And $4,000 the year after. I am gonna live it up in my retirement. Like Mark said, i think i am just gonna sit on my porch and do a lot of drugs. Or something. And next year I am gonna file my taxes online. I was just excited i am going to get my return done direct deposit. That rules. And we’re doing a Jimmy Eat World show at 930 Club. Fucking ay. Speaking of shows, mad props to Elle for accepting my invitation to Willie Nelson @ WMZQ Fest. It’s gonna be a great show. At least for Willie. No clue who else is playing. It really doesnt even matter. Maybe we’ll get backstage and get to smoke a joint with him. It’s no Ben Folds Five. But it’s still Willie.

Oh and the new guy started. “Yes!” is all i can say!

elliot was like, no one from z100 would ever write that guy a good recomendation

skylab (18k image)I am almost done with my taxes. I just finished my Federal and State, but am contemplating filling out a Schedule C for my small business that has still yet to come about in the traditional sense. Turns out i get a pretty nice return. Lucky me. All i can say is that TaxCut is the bomb ass. I just wish it did my Mutual Funds and IRA’s more efficiently. As sucky a thing they are to do, it’s a sigh of relief for me. It reminds me of what a shitty job I dont have is like. And how fun my job is.

In job related news, we had a prospective hire interview with us. She seemed cool, but any art institute graduate is a pretty good red flag. Actually, no she didnt seem cool. She was awful. We asked her if she was in to pop culture. We had to explain to her for 5 minutes what it was. What the fuck?! Also she considered Kinko’s a Print House. Hmmm. And she considered File Maker Pro a scripting language. Ooops. Maybe if she got off her fat ass at the Mac store she works at now and learned something about anything, she’d get a job. Not my problem, but it was worth 30 seconds of my time to write about it.

Hey Scott!

I am just about finished with my taxes and thought about putting in my LLC Business expences. I am wondering if I should even bother putting this in as a Schedule C this year.

Do you think you’d have some time to talk about this later in the week, if you think it would even be worth it?

Enclosed is my expsense worksheet.

Are all of these expenses valid? Are there any other expenses you’d think I could include, off hand? The LLC was processed July 6th 2001, but I had expenses in anticipation prior to registration.
