  • july has been a long month. filled with birthdays, broken cars, lack of money, then surpluses of money, then again a lack of money, painting, and re-painting.
  • it's really hot here which sucks fairly large sized balls. in fact it's almost 11pm and still 86 inside the house.
  • i want ever other day to be a day off. we got a good amount of work done today which is nice. tomorrow we re-paint the interior of the same house we did last week. it's always fun to redo work you've already done.
  • no movie today which isn't good news.
  • tomorrow is food at the mexican restaurant where we will seen mary and onita. should be great fun.
  • tired.

  • 7-30-00 (22:44)

  • updated movies list.
  • there's a program called gnutella which i finally got around to getting. it's like napster only it allows you to search for more than just mp3s. it has a feature where you can see what people are searching for...a new search comes up litterally several times a second because there are so many people online. it ranges from music to operating systems or games. one problem with it is that it kills your bandwidth very quickly.
  • one of the cds i bought yesterday was a hip-hop crew which i met in kdvs one time...the cd is actually pretty good, it was only 2 bucks at rasputin.
  • woke up at 2pm today, didn't do much today. i did look at the sending unit on my car, it seems to work, it might be that the cable is sticky. i know how to change brake and shifting cables on bikes, maybe it's the same routine with the gas tank on my car.
  • cleaned my room yesterday, but it's messy again. i just have too much stuff. i think i might start trying to simplify like johnny.
  • my new phone battery is working well. i also have three backup phones in case this new battery decides to suck it up.

  • 7-30-00 (02:40)

  • parties are definitely not for me. the party we were supposed to go to was canceled so we went to some stupid one in davis which featured a keg, lots of stupid guys, and few decent girls. vern walked home. i drove kim (jon's sister) and jon to jack in the crack. while we were there we saw two girls who couldn't get inside because only the drive thru is open after 1am. i told them they could get in the car and order something with us. then we drove them home. meanwhile we all talked about the weather or something.
  • after we dropped them off jon and i decided that we should turn around and knock on their door in order to acquire their phone numbers. we are dorks. so we went back to the apartment where we dropped them off and rang the doorbell three times. no answer. then we went to another apartment they said they were going to rent starting in september. jon rang the doorbell, again no answer. we saw a jack in the box bag in front of the door so we knew we were close. then kim saw them walking up ahead. we drove up to them and asked for their numbers. they didn't really seem too taken aback by it even though we had dropped them off 5 minutes ago and were now almost aimlessly wandering through arlington apartments trying to find them. it was borderline stalking, but it worked. they don't have phones yet since they're just moving into these apartments so they gave us the apartment numbers were they would be staying and asked for our numbers.
  • all in all it was an interesting ride, but i highly doubt anything will come of it. this is what i call the game. the game is retarded. i don't think i'll ever meet a person like me at a party. being different is sometimes a liability. such is life.
  • i wonder how much of that story made sense. i'm so drunk right now i can barely write coherently.
  • if you believe that i'm drunk then you don't know me.
  • johnny gave me the quick cam, a mini-telescope, a flannel, a couple tools, and more. i'm going to go to santa cruz more often.
  • we went to the flea market again and i got a great deal on some metric wrenches (not socket)...craftsman too. i also got a couple bungee cords. it was a smaller showing today than it was last sunday, but it was still decent. i wish they had flea markets in davis.
  • it only took 3 hrs 10 mins to get home...taking the long way and with some traffic.
  • i will have a respectable tool set in no time.
  • tired.

  • 7-29-00 (19:49)

  • santa cruz was good while it lasted.
  • got the car back fine, old volks home is a good shop...they installed a license plate holder for free too (after i asked for it).
  • updated the poll.
  • updated movies list.
  • updated cd list.
  • i guess i'm going to that party tonight. if i don't like parties there must be something wrong with me.

  • 7-28-00 (00:00)

  • job went well today. going to santa cruz to pick up malcolm tomorrow.
  • prodigy is supposed to come out with something in august, but i doubt it will happen...run dmc was supposed to come out with something last november. such is the music industry.
  • napster is gone. i'll just wait for the next one.
  • really tired. tomorrow will be long.
  • updated movies list.

  • 7-26-00 (21:26)

  • scott is never home.
  • everytime i listen to the crystal method i like them more. today we listened to it while working. having a boombox at work is really nice, i'm glad i bought it.
  • called the bug place and the car is fixed...valves were tight and some screw in the carb was blown out. i told them to work on the gas gauge while it was there. i like them more than the sacramento bug place. jon has offered to take me to santa cruz on friday since he's going half way anyway so i can pick it up and not have to ask johnny to take care of it for me. that's cool.
  • johnny will always tell you what he's thinking, this is a good quality.
  • updated movies list. 145 movies watched (155 to go) and 158 days left.
  • "Beastie Boy Mike D has unfortunately made good a little early on his promise in the new Rolling Stone that his band would be "severing (their) body parts and putting them back together" for the Rhyme & Reason 2000 tour. Complete details are still forthcoming, but Mike D was injured this Saturday in New York while riding his bicycle home from rehearsal, damaging his clavicle as well as several muscles, tendons and ligaments. The full extent of his injuries has not yet been determined. However, a specialist has recommended that he refrain from all physical activity for the duration of a two to three-month rehabilitation regimen—or risk permanently losing the use of the injured shoulder. More information on Mike D’s condition will be available following further surgery and treatment later this week. Announcement of re-scheduled dates, refund and exchange information, etc. will follow soon thereafter."
  • that sucks in a big big way.
  • got a letter from my sister today (she's at camp). that was cool. it seems as though people have been asking about me at camp...i've got to go next year.
  • i'm renewing the quest to have a duplicate to every cd i own...i'm behind by quite a bit, but i've gotten a good start, and now i have 80 minute cds to work with. i have about 85 cds to copy. joy.
  • sleep now.

  • 7-25-00 (21:22)

  • pretty damned long day.
  • reminder from yesterday: updated movieslist.
  • today we had a one day interior which was interesting....went pretty well for the most part, but jon thought we would be able to do the job with 3 gallons instead of 4 (his original estimate). so we had the 3 gallons custom mixed and went to work. he was gone most of the day and when he came back we informed him that we'd need more paint so he made the trip and got more, same formula and all. after going through about half a gallon we noticed that the new paint seemed a little bit lighter...we tried our best to make it look less obvious, and really did a decent job considering the situation. interior isn't as warm, but has more shit to watch out for that you can't fix...like the stairway carpet which gets paint on the side of it. hopefully we won't have to do that crap anymore.
  • we hope to find a few under the table jobs that we can do. because 50% or so of everything we book goes to student works we usually end up coming overbudget. if we charged less, but didn't kick back any to student works then we could make money and give the customers a better deal. if we do it that way we won't have worker's comp and they won't have the 3 year guarantee. it's a trade off, but the quality will be the same. we shall see.
  • after work we did a test patch for the most annoying woman ever. finally we got away from her and went to the mexican food restaurant. mary and susie part II were there and just about to close, but they let us in. we were the only customers in there for a while which was cool. they gave us guacamole without us asking and gave jon his milk just like he likes it without him asking as well. after three visits it seems we are regulars already. mary invited us to the party again (this weekend) and gave us directions, so that's pretty sweet. they were cleaning up most of the time, but mary sat down with us and talked a bit. i told her i wanted her to have my children and she slapped me. just kidding, just kidding. mary says "just kidding" a lot. finally we were all done with our food and the check came...last week we ordered the exact same thing and it came to 20 bucks (which is actually about 10 bucks less than it should have been for what we ordered), this week the total bill was only 15 bucks. so we gave her a 10 buck tip. they're pretty damn cool to say the least.
  • santa cruz: i was cruising along with about an hour left in the trip when i feel a lack of power and then look down and see the engine is dead. i pull off to the side and look at the engine, nothing out of the ordinary. i look at the oil and it looks like it's completely gone (it's dark so i can't really tell, even with the flashlight). i add more oil and discover it still looks empty, this is because the oil is so new it's not black yet and i just added more oil than i will need for a long time. i start the car and get back on the freeway, but there is a big time lack of power. i get off on the next exit and pull into a gas station, look at my vw book for some advice. it seems like a problem with the generator because the red light is coming on, but that doesn't make sense. for a while i try and fiddle with that. i buy a cresent wrench in the hope that i can fix the problem. really i wasn't doing much of anything because i don't have an extra fan belt or any shims to make the belt tighter. in fact the lights aren't dim so it's probably not an electrical problem. AAA can tow me 5 miles which is really useful in the middle of nowhere at 11pm.
  • vern and i make another run for it. we encounter traffic...now the car is running, but it's not liking the fact that it is. it's lacking lots of power and if i take my foot off the pedal it tries to die so i have to keep going fairly fast. there is no way i'm getting over highway 17 into santa cruz because it's a fucking cliff that can't be climbed in this condition. we stop in los gatos and call johnny for a ride the rest of the way.
  • while we are waiting for johnny this drunk old lady talks to us about god, being true to yourself and other such pearls of wisdom. the thing that stuck out was that she said "always be true to yourself"...or as mike d says it: "be true to yourself and you will never fall"
  • the next day we go on a bitchin' 15 mile mountain biking ride on some really good trails, plenty of good downhills, which meant the intial 3 miles sucked because they were straight uphill the whole time. it was worth it. i want a mountian bike again. vern bit it big time and i got close a couple times.
  • i can't remember what else we did that first day, but i know we did a lot. i hung out with marc for a little while, he's pretty damned cool.
  • the next day we got the bug towed to santa cruz...luckily johnny's girlfriend (christy) had a AAA plus card which allows you to tow up to 100 miles without charge. thanks. we also went to fry's. we played some football and we won.
  • that night that we played football vern wasn't around. i met a bunch of luke's friends which was cool because now i actually know who ryan, dorfman, and gabe are. we ate pizza and then played trivial pursuit. once again the team of chris, johnny, christy and anyone else won.
  • luke's friends are cool. marc is an amazing specimen, but very cool.
  • johnny gave me about a million items including my first craftsman tool ever...a single 5/8 wrench. very cool.
  • i went to the flea market which was extremely cool. i got burned. it was cool to see how much shit i could have picked up for so damn cheap. i must go there again some time.
  • we went to a drive-in theater and watched two movies, this time with vern.
  • monday i went to the bug place and showed them where my car was parked. at the flea market i bought one item - a vw manual by haynes. i looked around in it and concluded that the problem was probably having to do with the valves, the bug mechanic - who was pretty cool - concluded the same thing and quoted me at 60 bucks. it might be more because they might need replacing, who knows. it's only money so i don't care too much.
  • santa cruz weather is lame, but they have shitload of bugs (probably because they are trapped in the valley) and thus many bug shops.
  • christy is pretty damned dope as well.
  • we went to a bike store because johnny is thinking about getting a new mountain bike. it looked like the big sur (gary fisher) was really nice and within his price range...so was the rockhopper fs-a1 comp. something like that. i rode steve's which is basically the same bike and it was really good.
  • i've been updating for 35 minutes.
  • beastie boys and rage tickets are on sale on thursday at 10am for the SF show...hell yes. don't know the opening acts yet, but i don't care too much. i think they will come to sacramento as well. i'll be there and here.
  • doors rock your left nutsack. so does johnny.
  • johnny drove us to the train station in san jose...it took us about 4 hours to get from there to the house...the train stopped and changed cabooses and overall went too slow.
  • having a 20 gig hard drive is pretty damned plush.
  • wake up do it again tomorrow.

  • 7-25-00 (01:42)

  • much to say, much sleep to be had, will update more tomorrow.
  • updated movies list.
  • i think just about everything in life is common sense.
  • i think common sense is learned and not all that common.

  • 7-19-00 (23:03)

  • didn't go to work today because of the unhappy customer.
  • there is more swelling on my ankle than i had thought, but it was okay enough to play on yesterday.
  • updated movies list.
  • while we were in the movie theater parking lot three guys in a lexus gave us a stare down, so i looked back. they backed up and followed us. the guy in the passenger seat started mouthing off about this and that. i kept looking at him. finally they gave up, called me gay, called jon's sister an ugly bitch and then drove off. it would have been fun to finally get into a fight. oh well.
  • have to give jon and sister a ride to airport early tomorrow morning, i've known about this for about 15 minutes.
  • malcolm started up on the first crank today. oh, i hereby dub the bug malcolm.
  • i should sleep now.

  • 7-19-00 (00:14)

  • dennis miller is going to be announcing monday night football games next season, that should be cool.
  • went to play some basketball with the kdvs types, that was fun.
  • when i got back jon informed me that the idiot customer called us up and cancelled our job because even after coming back we were not up to par. that guy needs to get the stick out of his ass.
  • going to santa cruz this weekend should be fun.
  • beastie boys tics are on sale through sept. 5th now...they'll be in texas by then. it looks like they're going to end somewhere in california. shit yea.
  • updated movies list.
  • e-mail works again.

  • 7-18-00 (20:19)

  • so everything that we did yesterday was deemed unacceptable by the customer. today we "fixed" it and he will tell us if it is acceptable or not...if you ever get your house painted don't complain to the painters about their prep work, it's just stupid.
  • after work we went out to eat at the same mexican place as last thursday and said hi to mary. she invited us to a party next weekend which is pretty nice so we'll be going to that i'm sure.
  • bought a boombox for the job site today.
  • updated cd list.
  • i can't get email for some reason.
  • there have been many problems this summer and i haven't melted down yet; odd.
  • the job we are at right now has two dogs and four horses, the dogs hate us, but the horses are cool. we've been taking breaks to hang out with them, that's decent.

  • 7-16-00 (22:38)

  • updated movies list.
  • i wonder if anyone reads my comments on the movies i see, or check to see which movies i see. it's really only for me anyway.
  • i think i will buy something for my computer.
  • johnny updates his page a lot more often than i had thought, that is cool.
  • phil formatted his computer for the 50th time in his life. that's actually probably and underestimation...underestimation sounds like the last few painting jobs we've done.
  • speaking of which...jon is leaving on thursday so i hope we finish this job by then. we get paid friday which will be nice and jon picked up two more jobs this weekend so we'll have work at least through july and part of august.
  • september will be hot.
  • i discovered that there are 168 days left in the year and i have 164 more movies to see...
  • perfect dark is a good N64 game, probably the best of its kind in fact.
  • i'm going to miss not having a N64 next year. vern and i are going to build a lot of furniture.
  • all of a sudden i have a lot of money, but that's how it is with me...either i'm broke or rich.
  • johnny and vern's friend (marc) was cool when i met him, i forgot to mention that earlier.
  • i have two phones and both are sucking in a major way these days.
  • i'm running out of hard drive space and my video card is slow. i'm going to get new ones of both, this way i can return the 4gb hard drive to phil and finally run quake or other such video intensive games more smoothly. i'm not much of a gamer, but it'll be nice. i've had the same computer for 4 years now...in that time i've added one free hard drive, given one away, gotten a new cd writer, a new tower (the old one was over 6 years old), and one new 24x cd-rom. all in all i've spent about 300 bucks on the thing in about 3 years. that's pretty good considering a) how much other people spend on theirs b) how much i use it.
  • intel has the 1.5 gigahertz cpu out now, that's stupid. mine is .2 gigahertz. i'll stop being such a dork.
  • dj shadow is pretty damned cool.
  • sometimes i look at my cd collection and can't find anything to listen to, lately i haven't had time to listen to all the things i want to...i want to listen to about 10 cds at once right now.
  • vern has me wanting to build things now.
  • i opened the frig today and a bottle fell and broke, then i was filling the washer because no one else does and a glass broke, then i was making some chicken and it fell on the ground, then i was getting some ice cream and it fell on the ground. i ate both, naturally, but it was a drag. my blood sugar level is low.
  • there are a bunch of shoutcast servers i want to listen to right now, but dj shadow is better, sqaub teen calls, so does pearl jam, tool, fugees, source material comp., apollo four-forty, and more....
  • funny how the old nintendo owns all other game systems, same with super nintendo and gameboy, but n64 gets smashed by its competition. however, when n64 does it right, they do it really right.
  • well it appears as though i will have to own a dvd player soon - the beastie boys will be coming out with a massive collection of video and audio in october on dvd, it must be done.
  • not much more to say, i think i should sleep anyway.

  • 7-16-00 (01:39)

  • updated movies list.
  • didn't do much today.
  • jesus took a long time to start up today, but finally did.
  • shot around on the basketball court today, it sucked. my ankle isn't recovered yet.
  • i think dogs are better humans than humans are.

  • 7-15-00 (00:26)

  • updated movies list.
  • day started off at around 8am. got to the site where jon's car had broken down. the gas station was literally ready to tow it, but we showed up barely on time...the owner said she might bill him because the tow truck had been deployed...so we get AAA out there and a really nice tow truck driver takes us to two different places until we drop the jeep off at a place which will look at it and be able to fix it no matter how complex the problem is (something a jiffy lube type place wouldn't be able to do).
  • finally we got back on the road towards work. we picked up some trash from an old job site and dumped that in a dumpster. then made our way to our last job site and took a ladder from there to our very first job. mind you, we did all of this in a honda civic hatchback. we did some touch ups there and left by 2:15. from there we just went to walnut creek (an hour drive) to drop off our checks so that we can make payroll for next friday. we went home after that. in total there was about 3 hours of work and a shit load of driving done.
  • we still need to do the semi-gloss trim on our last job, other than that we have one huge job booked for next week. hopefully we make some bank from this next job.
  • after work i went to work on the bug...took out the choke and made sure that was installed and setup correctly. reassembled the choke, started it up and it ran relatively well. from there i adjusted the mixture screw a little, then the idle. did all this when the weather was warm. after all the adjustments it seemed to run rather well and, more importantly, actually started without much trouble. i just tried it again, in much cooler climate, to ensure that it was running well...it started on the first crank. i'm not sure why the people who work at bugformance didn't do the same thing i did...bastards.
  • in more news...while we were in dixon (small town outside of davis...also where we met mary while waiting for the car to cool down) we ran into about 4 people and 3 of them were extremely nice. eugene, who worked at the auto shop where the car is now, wished us a good weekend, said he'd call us when the car was done, etc. i think dixon should be renamed to "the home of courteous people"
  • here is a mockumentary by chris miller which is currently in the works...skinny white jesus (your savior) standing in front of the camera outside, squinting in the sunlight, the cameraman asks "what does carpentry mean to you?" jesus, in all sincerity, replies "carpentry is an art, a skill, it's a way of life..." he goes on to describe how difficult carpentry is and all the tricks of the trade he has picked up...he's not bragging, but there is a definite air of pride in his work. as he continues to talk about his pride the voice is laid over images of him working in the shop pounding nails into boards while constructing barns or what not...all of the action within this montage, though, is of jesus completely screwing up...jesus hammers his thumb and jumps up and down in pain...jesus tries to saw a board and the saw won't budge, etc. it would be really funny i think.
  • i'm going to hell.
  • i want to tape our painting experiences...there would be some classic footage.
  • sleep.

  • 7-14-00 (01:53)

  • must leave in about 6 hours.
  • today was epic. it took 6 hours to get home from 20 miles away...the car (jon's) overheated about 80 times, i changed the oil for him, we replaced coolant, flushed the cooling system, nothing worked. then it wouldn't even turn over...the battery seemed dead. it was a joke. stopped off at a mexican place and had chips for dinner. met mary. finally scott gave us a ride home.
  • my car hasn't been worked on yet, maybe i'll have time on saturday.
  • we have 5 more jobs booked, after that there won't be anymore painting, unless we start marketing. yay.
  • we are overbudget on every job we do which is sucky. jon picked up the wrong paint (flat instead of semi-gloss) so we have to redo much of the job we did today, tomorrow.
  • this whole venture is a nightmare for everyone. vern and i are getting paid less than 8 bucks an hour because we are overbudget. jon isn't making any money because we are overbudget. one reason we are so overbudget is because his estimates were a little too wishful. some of it is because of stupid mistakes. some of it is because of amateur technique. i think that our next big job will be under budget because we've made just about every possible mistake.
  • it was in the low 90s today. vern turned black. he'll have skin cancer very soon.
  • associates credit card wants me to pay them 285 bucks...they smoke too much crack...i owe them nothing. when i have a spare moment i will tell them just that.
  • updated movies list. from a couple days ago
  • need to sleep.

  • 7-11-00 (22:22)

  • ran errands, shot around on the basketball court, and nothing more.

  • 7-11-00 (00:01)

  • we finally finished the job from hell today. what a fucking day. out of the house for almost 15 hours
  • hopefully i get a lot of shit done tomorrow
  • there isn't much to talk about because i've been too busy to think. the man has a very smart plan - keep the worker to busy and tired to think or rebel...throw in two weeks worth of vacation to prevent uprisings.
  • i might be too tired to do anything tomorrow. days off are good. we have two interior jobs this week, that sucks, but they should be high yield, assuming we do them right.
  • the doors are dope.
  • wether by choice or not i've somehow kept myself as clean as a christian (in actions) through 21 years of life. that's pretty sad.
  • if the world was created in a matter of days and science has proved that those "days" really mean billions of years then sinning for just a second would probably be as bad as sinning for years. i wonder what the rules are on that. god? hook me up with the 411.
  • i could buy some beer if i wanted, that's an additional freedom i never had, but it really doesn't mean shit to me. funny how to some it means a lot.
  • no movie watched today. maybe tomorrow. if i woke up tomorrow i could get a shitload done...i probably won't though.

  • 7-10-00 (00:23)

  • updated movies list.
  • time to sleep.
  • might get tuesday off, that would be nice.

  • 7-9-00 (21:00)

  • going to be watching high sierra tonight, that should be good. rented 5 movies for under 5 bucks which is a good deal.
  • i'm happy with my cd purchases because i got a good balance of stuff. 5 hip-hop albums, 2 by groups i already own albums by. two jazz cds which i know will be good. two black sabbath albums which finishes up my black sabbath collection. one doors album which rounds my collection of their stuff a bit more. same with velvet underground, beach boys, and bob dylan. then there's the one dick dale cd which was a sure gamble.
  • i'm really out of the loop when it comes to anything having to do with music or computers because i haven't tooled around on the internet finding out about either.
  • the doors are pretty damned cool.
  • i tried to figure something out regarding math today and it took me forever. point: my math skills are non-existent.
  • jesus has a 49 cc engine i discovered.

  • 7-9-00 (16:36)

  • updated the trip page because vern got me those scanned pics of his and i finally got around to having some spare time. all the pictures are in black and white, some are grainy and some have little developing errors on them. there is one action photo of me taking pictures of the overturned cars which looks pretty cool. it's nice because vern seemed to take pictures when i was not so the trip is more filled in now...includes pictures near susanville, in dunsmuir, and in mt. shasta
  • woke up at 10am today then, after eating, i went to sleep for another 5 hours because i was bored.
  • nothing much to say. haven't spent much time in front of the tv or computer today so that's good.

  • 7-9-00 (00:06)

  • updated movies list.
  • tired, it feels like it's 3am.
  • up to 130 movies.
  • the guy at our job site offered us beer after we were done working. then he thought we might be too young. do i look young?
  • got to delete 7 more mp3s.
  • sleep time

  • 7-8-00 (19:53)

  • got 15 cds today in the mail for 35 bucks. oh yea. updated cd list.
  • work today wasn't too bad, we have one side to go and will do that on monday.
  • ankle is even better.
  • i really need to take my car in because there is something definitely wrong with it. morons. it could be the thermostat, the volume control, or the choke...other than that i have no idea, but i'm banking on it being one of those (all attached to the carb). if it's either of the last two then they should fix it for free. bastard morons.
  • i shaved this morning.
  • arla, safeway checker, remembered my name and birthday. too bad she's like 30 and married.
  • need to go to dentist, car shop, dmv, car paint place, damn i'm a busy guy these days.

  • 7-7-00 (23:19)

  • i'm officially a working man. it's 11 and i'm ready to sleep.
  • updated movies list.
  • we probably won't finish our job tomorrow unless we make it a long day.
  • my ankle is actually better today than i thought, but twisting makes it suck big time. walking, though, isn't bad.
  • love is knowing tupac.
  • rode jesus over to marina's with vern on the back. we watched blues brothers and smoked pot. it was crazy fun. i wonder if anyone actually thinks i smoke pot.
  • i haven't shaved or showered for a few days, such is life.
  • i think i could stand having the right girlfriend, the wrong girlfriend will most definitely turn me asexual.
  • bill withers was born on july fourth
