Looks like I may be making this fucking trip this weekend. Fuck me man…
Looks like I have to drive 6000+ CDs to our distributors hub in Memphis. Maybe I’ll go to Graceland.

This is one of the three releases I will be driving…
I’m pretty excited about how it turned out. The colors here aren’t accurate and the back and front match…
OUTBREAK are amazing. Check them out….

My body is rejecting me this week.
Myabe I shouldn’t drink from the fucking buckect of ice coffee that Kenn24 for made, the strongest thing I have ever tasted, I didn’t dare combine it with the ice coffee ice cubes that he made…

A trip to Target last night yielded a glue gun and some fabric glue. Finally fixed the fucking huge ass whole in my jeans…

Music: Under Sad Stars – Crooked Fingers

Apple released new displays yesterday. this one is 30″, I don’t even have a TV that big. Fucking insane…
but at $3,299.00 I will never ever own one.

They also annouced the new operating system, TIGER
awesome, but we have to wait a fucking year…

“Under sad stars in dingy bars
We turn away we tear apart
One drop of grace distant and safe
They cannot touch you where you are
Cold shafts of rain falling dark gray
Falling so far they can’t be saved
They cannot hurt you anymore
Here underneath these sad sad stars”
- Under Sad Stars, Crooked Fingers

Music: People Like Frank – Amon Tobin

So tonight Kenn24, Ezra and I went to Home Depot and I bought some O rings. For some reason I think it’s still 1996 and think piercings are cool (actually I don’t I just don’t mind my ears). I was playing with on of the O rings in Ezra’s car and lost it…so I had to go buy some more. Kenn24 bought some wood with which he planes to have a door for his room in a couple of days. With the scraps of said wood I am going to build a nice display for Kubericks, Dunny’s, Bearbrick’s, and assorted other things that I should of gotten over when I was 13.

From there we went to Cara’s to get here. We tried to fix her car window which conviently was stuck on the down position. Not a good thing in her neighborhood…

we went and got Burritos (when we walked in the where playing Neutral Milk Hotel, which made me a little sad)
and then walked around Newbury Street…
On the way home we where listening to FNX and they played Kenn and Ezra’s band (THE POWER & THE GLORY). We laughed for a good while…

Super Stop & Shop has some new cookies…
Chocolate Chip with icing in the middle
fucking yumm.

The Scariest Thing I Have Read In A Long Time…

Here is a scary news item as reported from the GUARDIAN UNLIMITED in Britain.

Moonie leader ‘crowned’ in Senate

Republicans and Democrats attend cult blessing ceremony

Julian Borger in Washington
Thursday June 24, 2004
The Guardian

The US Senate was used for a bizarre ritual in which the Rev Sun Myung Moon, the head of the Unification church, was “crowned” and declared himself the messiah in the presence of more than a dozen Republican and Democratic members of Congress, it was reported yesterday.

“Emperors, kings and presidents … have declared to all heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is none other than humanity’s saviour, messiah, returning Lord and true parent,” the 85-year-old Korean “Moonie” cult leader told several hundred guests at the meeting in one of the Senate’s office buildings on March 23, according to the Washington Post.

He also claimed endorsement from Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Hitler, who had all been reformed and reborn through his church’s teachings – an idiosyncratic version of Christianity which rejects the use of the cross as a symbol and denounces homosexuals as “dirty dung-eating dogs”.

An account of the ceremony was first published by a Washington investigative journalist, John Gorenfeld.

According to a transcript of the event, Mr Moon declared: “I am God’s ambassador, sent to Earth with his full authority. I am sent to accomplish his command to save the world’s six billion people, restoring them to Heaven with the original goodness in which they were created.”

The glittering event in the Senate’s Dirksen building reflected Mr Moon’s extraordinary influence in US politics. He owns the conservative newspaper the Washington Times and the US news agency United Press International.

His fiercely conservative attitudes towards homosexuality and pre-marital sex have won him the endorsement of leading Republicans, including the president’s father, George Bush, and John Ashcroft, the attorney general, who participated in one of Mr Moon’s “prayer luncheons” days before the president’s inauguration in January 2001.

Leading black Democrats also played a prominent role in the March ceremony.

An Illinois congressman, Danny Davis, wore white gloves and carried a purple cushion bearing a medieval-style “international crown of peace”, which was placed on Mr Moon’s head, at an event at which 100 Americans from 50 states were also given lesser “national” and “state” peace awards.

The event was an “innocent ceremony,” Mr Davis told the Guardian. “It was a banquet to give out awards. I didn’t have any way of knowing Reverend Moon would say he was the messiah, or whatever he said.”

Mr Davis acknowledged that “three or four individuals directly related to Rev Moon” took part in a fund-raiser for his primary campaign in Illinois earlier this year, but said small sums of money were involved.

Other members of Congress who attended the event said they had been fooled into going by being told only that people from their constituencies would be honoured at the ceremony.

A spokeswoman for a Democratic senator from Minnesota, Mark Dayton, said: “We fell victim to it. We were duped.”

It was unclear who gave permission for the Senate office building to be used.

During the ceremony Mr Moon invoked the blessing of all America’s past presidents. He also claimed to have communed with other big names in history.

He told his audience: “The five great saints and other leaders in the spirit world, including communist leaders such as Marx and Lenin, who committed all manner of barbarity, and dictators such as Hitler and Stalin, have found strength in my teachings, mended their ways and been reborn as new persons.”

It is not the first time he has claimed posthumous backing. His followers recently took out a two-page advertisement in the Washington Times to run a testimonial to him, quoting 36 former presidents “from the vantage point of heaven”.

FUCK.

On a birghter note I learned what onomatopoeia means from an amazing teacher…

MIA: Don’t you hate that?

VINCENT: What?

MIA: Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it’s necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?

VINCENT: I don’t know.

MIA: That’s when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shit the fuck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Pulp Fiction was on IFC tonight…
