Today, Gizmo and i spent most of the day sprawled out on the living room floor in front of the fan. too dehydrated to do much of anything. around 5 or so, i decided that we were hungry and i would have to face the heat.
i got off the floor and went to the kitchen sink, filled high with dishes i've been rinsing, but not washing. the all sit in the sink, and every couple days, i run the water over them soo that no gross mold grows.
of course , every time i turn on the sink, water goes all over my kichen until i am stading in a puddle asking myself why i don't get a new metal thingy for the faucet.
i opened the fridge and stared into it, dissapointed. wishing the perfect food would just be there, glowing in my eyes.
but no perfect food. beginning to rot zuccini, shredded mozzerela cheese that i wont eat at this point, but i'm just keeping in there because i'm curious when it will finally go blue. i believe its been in there for months. what is taking it so long?
i reached for an opened can of diet coke and took a sip. dissapointed again, because it was flat.
i splashed water on my face and threw on a shirt.
i grabbed my keys and cell phone and walked out the door.

mellow-dramatic entry. that was fun.

so i bought us food, stopped at my parents to make the m & m thing and enjoy the a/c. then i got a phone call from my friend and i ended up taking off soon after i got to my parents. they had left anyway, and i forgot to bring my camera, cuz i wanted to put some stuff on youtube.

i came back home, played video games for a while cuz i hadnt used my ps2 in ages since it was broken. i probably should have eaten something healthy today, but i didnt.

i need to go to bed soon, but i wanted to say i just saw the movie/documentary "When Stand Up Stood Out". I really enjoyed it. i am a big fan of Steven Wright, Dennis Leary, Paula Poundstone and Janine Garofalo who were interviewed in the movie. It also had Lenny Clarke, Colin Quinn, DJ Hazard, Bobcat Goldthwait, Jimmy Tingles, Don Gavin, Kevin Meany and Barry Crimmons.

I really enjoyed it. the summery from is:

A documentary covering what came to be known as "The Boston Gold Rush" of the late 1970s and early 1980s, when Boston stand-up comedians like Dennis Leary, Steven Wright and Colin Quinn burst upon the national scene, giving audiences a taste of the hard-edged social and political commentary that came out of that city.

it is also cool to me because i know 2 guys who worked as psych hospital councelers after being part of that whole scene, going down hard into addiction, then got clean and got jobs helping others, using their comforting boston blue collar humor.
one of the guys i havent seen in years, but last i saw him, he wanted to do a stand up act about bipolar disorder, and the other guy i see all the time because he is my sort of social worker. actually, i believe he's a psychologyst technically, but he is not my therapist or med doc. but i really like him and he'll be one of the people i will probably always remember.

anyway, that was a tangent, but yeah, it was a good movie. I got it from Showtime On Demand, but i'm sure its downloadable or available somewhere. if you like stand up or any of those commedians, or history or boston, you should check it out. a lot of the comedians remind me of my dad. possibly lenny clarke the most.

oh, and i forget if i mentioned that i watched the Leonard Cohen tribute documentary the other day. I really enjoyed it. If you don't know who Leonard Cohen is, he is a musician. i cant really explain him, but he is great and has been a giant influence on many of probly your favorite musicians... maybe... i guess it depends. anyway. look him up. I suggest "Everybody Knows" as a starter song...but i'm a huge fan of the 1990 movie Pump Up the Volume, in which the pirate radio DJ, Hard Harry, opens his shows with that Leonard Cohen song. Concrete Blonde covered it nicely on the soundtrack but i was always disappointed that the original wasnt on the soundtrack as well. Both versions were in the movie, but the official soundtrack is lacking a lot of the best songs in the movie.. so whatvah.

i'm going to bed. i have a pimple on my elbow? why?
