Last week I went to Chicago for a plastics show. I know, bitchin'. Anyway, I've been to Chicago for work before and it involves fancy steak houses and what not. This time, I decided to take the advice of Dan Mac from We Have to Chill Now. and search out Kuma's Corner. I was able to get a partner in crime in on this mission and a $20 cab ride later, we found ourselves out side of a Heavy Metal Burger Bar with an 1.5 hour wait on a Tuesday night. No doubt the wait was worth it. I'd rather book you a ticket to Chicago than explain this place. It's unbelievable. Everyone needs to experience it.
Tanya and I joined the Director Chris Zam and his family and friends to the nationwide premier of Street Dreams Friday night. I even had the opportunity to quietly fan out on Ed Templeton who came out to see the film. The Film is totally entertaining and if you have any love for skateboarding, you should go see it.
If memory serves me well (I sure fucking hope so), then today is Duane Peters' birthday. If I'm wrong, fuck it. I don't need any of the 3 people that read this thing to tell me otherwise. A couple of years ago, The U.S. Bombs played a show on Duane's birthday out and Fullerton and it was great. I don't think there is show tonight. Duane rules and I wish him a happy birthday and many more. Do yourself a favor and see this movie. It's one of the best for sure.
I once heard my friend say, "Nothing says unemployment like a well updated blog." Like Homer Simpson, I found it funny because it was true. I suppose the contrary can be said as well. My blog has been neglected, because thankfully I am no longer unemployed. I now work for the best company on the plant. At least that's what the first sentence says in the employee handbook. I appreciate that sort of outlook. Anyway, I'm back to the day in, day out routine. A great author David Foster Wallace once had the opportunity to give a commencement speech and my recent employment got me thinking about his speech. It is well worth your time to read it.
