Got my stitches out today. All 13. I was also able to get a good look at the leg. All I have to say is, it's not a pretty sight so I'll spare all y'all from having to look at nasty pictures. But here is the new x-ray with all the plates in my leg! It's actually pretty amazing at what they can do now. Most of that stuff will be removed later but that long plate down the fibula is staying for good. I guess I have to stay away from high-power magnets from now on.
Life on crutches sucks. The next two months is gonna be a big pain in the ass, I predict. The other day I went to Kmart to get some supplies. I was confronted by a mentally disabled guy who suggested I get one of those electric carts to cruise around the store with. While I was waiting for the cart, the guy started to tell me how he became the way he was. Turns out when he was 16 he got jumped by 20 guys. He said the only thing he remembers is a baseball bat coming down on his head, arms and legs. The beating put him in a coma f...Read more
I'm not quite sure where this term originated and I really don't understand why you would tell someone that before going out to do a show. Does anyone know the history?
OK here is some serious news that I have been holding back on until everything was under control. Remember my blog entry on June 22nd about my skateboard crash? I should have taken that as a sign and stopped right there but it really was so relaxing and fun pushing through the streets. Well on Tueday June 12th I was skateboarding to school early in t...Read more
I was walking down the street the other night and spotted this beauty. For those of you old enough to know, this is a Dodge Charger like the General E. Lee in the Dukes of Hazzard. I used to watch that show all the time growing up. My Mom didn't want me to watch it because she thought it would make me crazy. Sorry Mom, that's genetics. I watched it because I liked to see the car go fast and jump things.
It finally happened. After a month of carefree skateboarding around New York, I slammed in the most unattractive way this morning on the way to school.
I should've seen it coming. Last week I hit a pot hole which sent me flying into an intersection but luckily I was able to catch myself and landed on my feet. Then yesterday, I was trying to squeeze between a car and the sidewalk and was met with the se...Read more
Went to the Mos Def show last night. You might recognize him from movies like Hitchhikers Guide and 16 Blocks. Decent actor with a real cool laid back vibe and he's one of the very few that are doing anything interesting in hip-hop today.
I didn't think I would get in because tickets were sold out but on a whim, I walked all the way across town to the Highli...Read more
I can't hold my tounge any longer. Ladies, ladies, ladies, please stop the insanity! The sun is out and so are those stupid oversized 60's style sunglasses. Look at the picture below. That's reason enough not to wear these damn things. They should tack an extra 60 days on Paris' sentence just for wearing those silly glasses. Most guys do not find them cute and unless you are Lenny Kravitiz's drummer or Jackie O, you most likely can't pull them off, so just say no. If you are wearing them inside or...Read more
My director friend Aaron in New York showed me this. Has anyone seen this movie? This redited clip makes it seem absolutely insane! It's pretty damn funny.
紐約的導演朋友 Aaron給我看這個片段。有人看過這部電影嗎？這個剪輯看起來真是瘋狂！太搞笑了。Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6i2WRreARo| 纽约的导演朋友 Aaron给我看这个片段。有人看过这部电影吗？这个剪辑看起来真是疯狂！太搞笑了。...Read more
My friend from South Africa sent me this with the following text attached. Read it before you watch the video. Damn, 606 takes! The things you can do with time, patience and lots of money. These things are called Rube Goldbergs, by the way
Video: Honda commercialAnd you Thought those people that set up roomfuls of dominos to knock over were amazing? There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it.
The film took 606 takes. On the first...Read more
So sad! I have been forced to give up one of my favorite morning drinks cuppacino because I'm lactose intolerant. It started a few years ago and has gotten progressively worse with age. When you are lactose intolerant it means that you do not have enough enzymes in your stomach to break down and digest milk. Cuppacino has quite a bit of milk in it. I had one this morning before school and my stomach was cramping all day. That's not good when I'm trying to pay attention in class. I don'...Read more
