From the Past

For some odd reason, I'm obsessed with checking my high school reunion web site. I think it must be a morbid curiosity about what my peers from yesteryear are up to. I was surprised to see what's become of one of my high school friends...

After high school my parent gave me everything, like a business and house. Well, I blew it by getting high on crack and robbing a bank in Kansas. I got caught and went to Federal prison for about 5 years. When I got out of prison, I change a few things (switching to meth) and entered a life of drugs, burglary, theft, and most recently - shooting at the police. The last event (April 2007) was a misunderstanding in Lee's Summit. I did not shoot anyone, but they thought I was trying to shoot them? My gun went off accidentally six times. The real bitch of it, is the State of Missouri is charging me with assault on a law enforcement officer, while the Feds (ATF) are going to charge me with a felon in possession of a firearm? Oh...I also have a few outstanding Burglary warrants (another misunderstanding) to take care of as well.
Long story short, I will probably miss the reunion...unless you can help me with bail? I am good for me, I 've learned my lesson. Please write me or put money on my book (prison account) so I can buy shampoo and cigarettes. Take care and go Patriots!

Sadly, it's not a joke. It's sort of funny and sad all at once. I was home from college one weekend and my mom had an article about a bank robbery gone awry and asked, "Isn't that one of your friends?" I googled my friends name after I read his post, and several news stories about the more recent incident popped up. I think it shocks me more than anything else. And, makes me think my life and problems really aren't so bad.

Thursday, December 27, 2007 is UP and RUNNING!

The images are tiny, but I've got 30-some images up on now. Hopefully I'll figure our some more of the functionality over the weekend. If you've got internet on one of your mobile devices, give it a test run and let me know what you think...

New Savage Monsters Site Coming Soon!

As always, I've got too many things going on. After watching my niece and nephew navigate Savage Monsters, I saw a bunch of stuff that I'd like to revamp, redo or redesign. And, I got the itch to expand Savage Monsters to mobile devices. Hopefully I'll get up and running soon.

Join The Goonhead Patrol!

One day soon, you'll be able to become a card carrying member of the Goonhead Patrol. Although I'm not sure anyone actually wants to BE a member.

The Wreck That I Call Home

Still without cable and internet. Nothing on the walls. Strange rules like "TVs and stereos may only be played between 8 am and 8 pm." How can this possibly be my home?

Stirring Up the Clutter

Sifting through all my crap, I found a few things...

Me (on the far right) in front of CBGB shortly after Joey Ramone died.

And a drawing I did for George Lowrey back in the Funny Garbage days. The last time I saw George he asked about that drawing. I had just run across it the week before and then couldn't find it again (after numerous attempts) until recently (when I wasn't looking for it.)

New Office

My new office space seems to be coming together pretty well. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I can't fit it all into my apartment.

iMac Photo Booth

I'm not sure what to think of Photo Booth on my new iMac at work. The normal pictures are creepy enough, the effects just make it all the more creepy.

Among the Giants

I had my first LA celebrity sighting today...Gene Simmons. It must be an omen of good things to come.
