tonight tonight

I got stuck on the causeway coming home for two and half hours yesterday. Luckily I had a New Yorker in the car so I just turned off the engine and read it and it wasn't so bad. I knew it must have been caused by someone driving like an idiot and indeed it was. Hopefully this jerk learned his lesson. He's lucky he didn't kill someone. Out of the 100 cars or so within my sight line during the whole thing, less than ten people were assy enough to turn around on the freeway and drive off the on ramp (and they all had large trucks or suvs not surprisingly). That was a crazy sight. Another funny thing was this minivan who thought they had the bright idea of using wire cutters to cut the fence between the freeway and the frontage road and drive through. Problem was, they got stuck in the mud trying to do it. Ha ha!

Tonight is an exciting show at Fools Foundation. Is this the first time the Bananas and the Rege have shared a bill? And then tomorrow the 'nanas play at Balazo 18 in SF. Too bad thunderstorms are forecast again, but I guess that's just a given in this area now in these days of global warming.

Sunday the Kabinet is screening Two Lane Blacktop, starring James Taylor and Dennis Miller (psyche, Dennis Wilson. I think I may be able to make it to this after I finish my intense celebration of Jesus' miracle of turning chicken eggs into chocolate eggs. The next two sundays the Kab is playing a Peckinpah movie and then a Buster Keaton movie.

The scuttlebutt I've heard so far is that the Archbishop is doing a bang-up job as GM of the Tower. He has not yet been beaten down by the corporate bureaucracy and is trying to get some shit done around there. I have contacted him today for an interview about his new job and other junk.

re: Tower - they still need lids for the coffee cups! Or is that some sort of cost-cutting measure?

I want to go see Two Lane Blacktop but it's the same time as the Lesley Gore show...Suddenly there are multiple things to do on an Easter Sunday evening in the Sac region..go figure...

i have faith that the archbishop is struggling to fix little details like that.

also, i've heard that he's trying to get coffeeworks coffee instead of the cheap crap they have now which will make theirs the best cup of coffee you can get in that area (and i'm including starbucks in that of course)

The Archbishop fixed the friggin soda machine. That alone means he should grant himself an indulgence. I say, give him an Easter boner and some paid leave!

Oh, but which Peckinpah movie? I've been left hanging. And only I'm allowed to do that to myself.

bring me the head of alfredo garcia. don't pretend you are going to come to sac to see it.

Stephen Glass said...

Actually, I'll be in Sacramento in three days. So, uh, they'll have to move up that showing because I won't be there long.

And that's a fine film. Warren Oates has been kind of irreplaceable.
You keep The New Yorker in your car?
