The Rainy Season
Apparently we are in monsoon season here in early June. i've never seen it like this. Pouring all day long. If i see locusts or frogs start falling from the sky i am pulling up stakes and getting the hell out of here. You don't have to be Yul Brynner to know plagues when they arrive.
What have i been teaching lately? Well, about Ford and GM finally building fuel-efficient small cars (GM was told it needed to recover their competitive advantage by the Obama Admin. when they were bailed out by the Taxpayers). Tomorrow i'll start an article about how there is ACTUALLY such a phenomenon as raining frogs. What else; Marketing and the early Republican candidates for President (I threw the Gary Hart / Donna rice scandal in there, as well as the Iran-Contra affair; supposedly a CIA guy said he was tasked with neutralizing Hart because of his promises to investigate the relationship between the Government and organized crime. And Bush was the VP, Ex-head of the CIA. If they'll fund an illegal war in Nicaragua, sell weapons to the Iranians and allow drug dealers to bring cocaine into Miami as long as they dropped off the weapons to the Contras, can you put it past him to dig up dirt on Hart? The students seemed to dig it. They were shocked about the Iran-Contra affair but it's all documented. I studied it in social science with John Orman (Ethics in Government.) How the fuck did our country ever elect George Bush after that? And a heap of people took the fall for George. The paper trail led right to his feet. But they took the fall so that Bush could still run in 1988.
Sometimes i swear i've seen it all. The things that people do on this planet are unbelievable. And what's going on in the US now.... well it doesn't make a goddamned bit of sense.
New class manana, up north. I'll take as many classes as i can get. Anything to keep from doing the soundtrack for pornos again. Although i did win a PORNY award for Best Soundtrack for The Wind Beneath My Wang (1998). And Amy PoonTang also won another award for WBMW for Best Actress in a Foursome. 2 PORNYS, that's kind of impressive.
But i've turned the page. I left that life behind a long ago time ago. Possibly in a galaxy far far away.
Today i feel old. That just happens sometimes.
Will the Canucks take a commanding 3-0 lead in the Stanley Cup or will Boston still stake a claim to make it a series. I think Boston did well just to get as far as they did (and beat a tough Tampa team.) I just think it's Vancouver's year after 4 decades of waiting.
Like the way the Caps are still waiting. They tear it up in the regular season and then fizzle and fry in the playoffs.
My mobile phone just rang. I was offered a job scoring a new movie, Seymour Butts. I passed. I'm going to bed.
Bender Tuesday was a blast. I didn't get there til 10:30 and everybody was psyched to see me. It's an organic celebration of friends getting together during the middle of the week. I quite like it.
I work at 4, 6, and 8. I teach therefore i am.
