so it's true?!Well the past day was pretty nuts. Yesterday after work we all went to the Hippodrome at GW. We went bowling there with the station. We had set up Weezer to be there to go bowling with us. Then they would rock for us and sign some autographs for the listeners. It was pretty swell. I am not a big Weezer fan. Well, I am. I really, really like their music. But as people, I could care less about what they had for dinner, etc. To me it’s pretty funny watching all the girls and some boys, for that matter, swoon over these dudes in the band. It’s really no different than swooning over the backstreet boys. But if they didnt have the band, they’d be that same old slack loser at the record store who couldn’t find a date, just like me. (only i dont work at the record store, nor do I want a date) So anyways…It was cool. The most great part about last night was seeing GUS BRANDT. He was Soul Coughing’s old (Tour) Manager. He is working with Weezer while Foo Fighters are on their hiatus. He is truely one of the nicest rock guys behind the scenes I have ever met. Granted I only met him a few times, he still remembered my name. I was impressed. GUS!

So after the show I went back to work, on my own freewill. (I think the boss really liked that one) I decided to stick up some Weezer photos on the web site. OK, first of all the new system we have hosting our station’s website is pretty quirky. In fact I would never endorce such a product ever. Their imagining system is pretty shoddy as well. In fact each time I use it, it fails on me. I hate shit that breaks. I totally understand why Trent Reznor breaks shit like that. If it broke, make it pay. So after I gave up on our imaging server I decided to use my back up of Hot995’s webserver. Of course after adding 200k worth of images, I crashes. That is ludicrous. That is like a 1/10th of a floppy. And it’s crashing a server. What a piece of dog shit. Maybe I dont know the full story, but something doesnt work. So in the end, I put all that shit on my personal server here. At least I know that shit works.

But at least when I got home at 4am last nite (morning), I had a package waiting for me. I got a mix CD from SUMMER O NINA. Wooo! Always pulls through for me. “Oh yeah you’re pretty good looking, for a girl” There is something about girls that like good & interesting music. Perhaps they get more attractive by the caliber of music they like. Like they get hotter as the music gets better. And it’s exponential when they introduce you to new and exciting music, you’ve never heard. That shit will do wonders on a boy like me. “I don’t wanna be a boy, but you’re still pretty good looking” So I even brought it in to work. Typically the two people in our room will tell me to turn it off. Today, miraculously, they said nothing. Even to SUPERCHUNK. “I’ve never really been to your new house, & I bet I know exactly what it’s like…and when we go to sleep I kiss you ON THE MOUTH – lay out on the couch, I spend the night. Yeah!” Mysterium Stupendum
