Dream Theater—Black Clouds & Silver Linings
Movie review: These three young Australians who like bicycles find some
walkie talkies in a lake and sell them around town to make money buy
bikes so they can race 'em and do tricks and stuff.
Of course those walkie talkies belong to some criminals who want them
back and they chase after the youngsters (including a young Nicole
Kidman) and wear masks and stuff but of course our heroes come out on
top and Nicole wins some races at the movie. Yay!
**I think I chuckled once. Check out Nicole's hair. And the stunts she
does on the bike. So damn talented!
Sometimes I like doing things just because. And just because, I decided
to not eat any meat starting two weeks ago.
The woman laughed at me and said I couldn't so it, but that laughter
turned to silence and, quite possibly, awe when I came home from the
grocery store one day with a bag of Boca meatless crumbles.
I thought it would taste just like meat, but was in for a grand surprise
when I burnt those meatless crumbles in the skillet. I went ahead and
made some tacos and ate them, but it tasted like burnt….well, I don't
know. Burnt SOMETHING.
But that didn't deter me. I went ahead and ate salads, toasted peanut
butter and butter sandwiches and oatmeal mostly since the Boca
experiment and I must say I feel pretty good. I don't have a craving for
meat, but I did buy some chicken today for some chicken tacos since I'm
also o a taco kick right now.
Don't get me wrong, I am not a vegetarian or anything like that. I'm
just curious how Long I can go without eating red meat. It's probably
because I really have nothing else better to do.
Now onto the upcoming roadtrip (it's next week kiddies!): I asked the
woman to do something simple and find some comfy shoes that I can wear
while driving. I usually wear sneakers but don't tie the laces because I
feel that's cool.
This trip I wanted something different, some shoes that could just slip
on and off. Something with no laces. Something simple.
So she goes shopping and comes back with a pair of dress loafers.
Shockingly, they're going to be returned. I sat her down after looking
at her purchase and explained what I really, really needed and I think
she's finally got it. Basically I'll end up wearing sneakers again, but
for a couple hours she'll ge gone looking for shoes so that's a good
Packing is about 50% done for those keeping notes.
Car had an oil change.
Sirrus has been renewed.
Watch out hometown (and all those rest stops along the way) for here I
Will be welcomed back to my hometown or will someone remember what I
did, turn my ass in for the reward and then watch while I'm shot,
electrocuted and then drugged just for the hel of it?
Will I sign autographs at rest stops in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and
New Jersey from my tens of adoring fans?
Will the woman start an argument about the stupid thing while I'm
Will I drive the whole way?
Will it really be as exciting as looking at a pile of dead leaves?
Do I care? Does anyone?
What's that hanging out of the cats butt?
COMING NEXT: Either more incoherent shit pre-trip or the post-trip
roundup. So, basically nothing.
