I woke up at 8:55 AM and my neighbor, sweet little Rachael, all 98 lbs of her was outside my door, and ready to take me to a wonderful Mexican breakfast. Then she hoped me to do my laundry, which was weird cause it's been ages, and ages since a female helped me wit my laundry. I had a 1 PM appointment with my CPA to pick up my tax stuff, and to go see Spiderman 2 again, he hadn't seen it yet. And Rachael offered to finish my wash for me in my absence. And that was awesome.
On the way into the theatre I dropped off a copy of the new MK to the owner of Laurie's Planet Of Sound, and this guy who used to advertise in MK ULTRA was a little taken back by the change in the look. As I was talking a woman came in with her newborn and said " Mr. you dropped this on the sidewalk." It was a $20 bill! I had accidentally dropped it when I was feeing the meter. And that was another good sign it was going to be a good if not great day.
Tom, my CPS (account) and I bonded a few years ago over our mutual admiration of comic books. He's in his mid to late 50's and travels the world to exotic locations, and me, well, I'm no spring chicken, and you all know what I do. Pretty much. So being I already have documented that S2 is likely the greatest movie I'd ever seen, and I mean that, I was amazed by the effect it had on me the second time around.
We men live in the "man box". There are tings were never ALLOWED to do and not supposed to express. But in the middle of the flick to look to my right and see an man some 15 years my senior wiping his tears with a hankcheif, makes me feel a lot better about trying to smear my tears with a single digit thinking nobody sees. The most impressive thing about the entire and I mean entire detail of this film is that it had the exact impact on me in every way that it did before I knew what was going to happen. It's a grave injustice than a film of this magnitude and massive proportions would never be nominated for an Academy Award.
So afterwards, I came home to my new pad and Chris from Invisible Records/ Underground Inc. showed up with a new shipment of MK T's for the new models etc and porn stars for the next 2 covers and centerfolds. And after I went through them Paige called to meet me for dinna and to look over photos which you are about to see. And Paul called to drop off my camera and things from the DVD we're doing for aforementioned Invisible Records/ Underground Inc.
I arrived at Ranalli's and Paige rolled up on her bike wearing a black skirt, and as she chained it up, Paul pulled up to drop off my video camera. NOW THAT IS PERFECT TIMING!
So we went in and had dinna and her is a peek for all of you of Day 1 at the FLASHBACK WEEKEND 2004 in Chicago with AZ and Paige.
