On the way to work this morning we saw a Krispy Kreme delivery truck parked in the lot at Shoney’s near our office. I told my wife that if I was a criminal I would be like Robin Hood, steal the truck, and give out free donuts to everybody. I think that would be a lot of fun. And I wouldn’t stop at donuts either. I’d steal delivery trucks of all kinds of things – flowers, beer, soda, whatever. And then I’d just go pass it out for free. You know you want to do it.
The weather today was unbelievable. Very nice. I even got a little sunburned on my head which is pretty funny. Hard to believe that tomorrow we’re supposed to have strong wind, rain and storms.
We’re watching Superman II right now. It’s pretty great, but oh man, those special effects are not very special. It makes me laugh because everything looks so phony. But, what do you expect from 1980? It’s weird that Christopher Reeve is dead now. Ronee wants to see Superman III because that’s the one that has bizarro Superman in it. She’s into it. She thinks he has a super “package” – whatever that means.
A couple of days ago the new CD from my pals, Movies With Heroes, was released. It’s called “Nothing Here Is Perfect” and it’s really good. Ronee and I saw them play here in a Nashville a few weeks ago and they were better than ever. You can get it on iTunes, Amazon, Interpunk and wherever else music is sold. Get it!
Am I the only person who thinks Shakira can’t sing? Sure, she can dance. But her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. And her lyrics are even worse. Not a good combination. She’s everywhere right now and I wish she would just go away.
I just spent way too much time re-doing my template. I think it’s easier to read now. Still trying to fix some things. Ronee and I are watching Monty Python. It’s always good for a laugh. More tomorrow, I promise.
Here’s a preview of the first show from the show’s production company. Episode 201, premieres Saturday, April 1st at 10pm EST/PST: “The Henry Rollins Show” kicked off with a bang as Henry separated himself from those other talk show hosts with his unique take on the monologue “Teeing Off.” Henry outlined his mission statement for his new series, promising to address the important issues at hand while delivering interesting guests and killer musical performances. Oliver Stone joined Henry for a powerful conversation centered around film and politics. Referencing the film “Nixon,” Mr. Stone drew compelling parallels between the impeached president and our current administration. Oliver also commented on the Iraq war, examining the lessons we clearly ignored in Vietnam. In the first installment of “Letters from Henry”, Henry sent a heartfelt letter to Laura Bush pleading for her help in stopping her husband and with this week’s “Rollins Reconsiders,” Henry changed his mind on the Blackberry craze. The musical guest this week was Sleater-Kinney, who delivered a powerful performance of the song “Entertain” off their critically acclaimed album “The Woods.” They also performed the song “Jumpers” exclusively for IFC.com.
25 years old! No matter how old you get, you’ll still be younger than me! Happy Birthday. I love you.
Adios chicken little. I’m happy that Kevin Corvais finally got voted off of American Idol. It’s a SINGING competition. I don’t care if 12 year old girls think he’s cute. He has a lisp and he can’t sing. Also, everybody else should lay off of Simon Cowell. He’s the reason they even have the dang show. If he wasn’t there to have a different opinion that would be the most boring show on TV. Seriously. Why is everybody so afraid of a different opinion? We’ve turning into a nation of oversensitive babies. Boo hoo.
Did any of you see that new reality show after American Idol where they have to unanimously vote who to give the prize money to and it can only be one person. That was crazy right there.
Monday is Ronee’s 25th birthday. I better get it together. I love my wife. She is such a great person and we have some fun times and laughs together. I’m lucky and blessed to have her.
Did I mention that we saw V For Vendetta last weekend? It was awesome. We saw it at the IMAX theatre which made it extra great. And against all odds – especially for St. Patricks Day – everybody was very quiet.
Work is going pretty well. I have to do postage the next couple days because we’re sending out so many packages. That’s a good news bad news type situation. It’s awesome that we’re doing great. I just wish that didn’t mean I’d be leaning over the postage machine for a couple hours each day. Oh well. I’m a team player, right? Damn right I am.
I’ve been working out 5 days a week now. I’m really trying to lose weight again. I hate it. Why can’t I just eat what I want?
I guess that’s it for today kids. Sorry it’s not very exciting. Thanks for tuning in. I’ll try to do better next time.
Check out my 2 seconds of fame! Well, not really. They blurred my face out. But it’s me, nevertheless. If you watch the first thirty seconds of video you can see me. I’m wearing all black. Check out the video from the WKRN website. Here’s a picture with a few frames in case the video doesn’t work for you.
Here’s what I’ve been up to the last few days. Ronee and I went to Opry Mills. We went out for dinner at The Rainforest Cafe. We had a great dinner and a great time. The service and food were surprisingly good. That was a relief. Then we caught the late show of V For Vendetta at the IMAX theater. That was awesome. The movie was really good and it was the perfect theater to watch it in. That was how we celebrated St. Patrick’s. I had a Guiness with dinner. Ha. Today I went downtown for the peace march. There was a hundred or so people. I was impressed that there was a lot of moms and kids and older people. A very diverse group of folks. That was really encouraging to me because I sometimes feel like I’m the only person upset enough about the way things are going to actually DO something. It’s easy to be critical from the couch. But I think from time to time it’s good to let your voice be heard. Later I saw the protest was covering on the local news. I said a prayer for peace and I felt better about things. At least for a little bit.
