Apparently, Bill Pullman (not Paxton) made a movie in 2003 called “Rick.” Its supposed to be a modern adaptation of that famous opera “Rigoletto.” Having never seen that opera, I can only assume that it sticks to the story. Probably not though.

Like I say, there isn’t really a movie I can watch that I cant predict what will happen. This movie was no exception. It had some amusing moments, mostly from Pullmans character. Can you guess his name? The character in question is supposed to be a rich, assholeish Wall Street type. He pulls it off well, and I was laughing at his assholeishness. Thats two new words that involve “asshole” in the same paragraph. Good for me.

I’m not going to bother to explain the plot. Overall, its not worth seeing unless its free. In my case, it was. So if you want to see it, go ahead, but you better not pay money for it.

I need a vacation.

Here I am, back from a week off work, back from a week of sitting around the house or sitting around somebody else’s house or sitting around a bar, and I need some time off. I’ll get it Sunday. Maybe I’m just behind on my video games, and that is creating a sense of urgency to have time off. Yeah, thats it. Cant wait until I work 3 days a week and make $100,000 a year. I’ll be able to spend lotsa time playing video games with my son. And if I have a boy, we can play 2 player games. Especially Contra on NES.


Dumb! Or a genius, perhaps.

I was making myself my usual semi-weekly drink of Everclear and cranberry juice (I call it a “Cape Blaahhhad”), when I came to the end of the Everclear. Well, not really the end, but not enough to justify putting the bottle back into the fridge. So, I poured the remains into the shaker. I had already put in 3/4 a shot of the concentrated drunkenness. I guess whatever else I put in was the equivalent of a whole shot (Or more, I do recall saying “Fuck it, its Friday.”). For some reason, it looked like less when it was in the bottom of the bottle all by it self.

To make a long story short, I have imbibed to much Everclear within 20 minutes. With only a soy-corn dog to soak it up, I’m afraid I won’t be of much use for the rest of the night.

So if you needed to make use of me, sorry. I will be available sometime tomorrow.
