Last night's ZZ Top - Hank Williams Jr. concert

  • ZZ Top - for putting on an awesome conclusion.
  • All the people who came out despite the weather and behaving fairly well for the most part.
  • All the employees like myself who did a kick-@$$ job.
  • The weather. Four inches of rain in less than an hour can really create problems. Thankfully, it cleared up and the sun came out by the time the show started.
  • Hank Williams Jr. for being a total ass, cussing the whole time, spitting in the crowd, and putting on an overall piss-poor performance
  • The few drunk people that caused problems

The Beltran Trade

I'm not sure yet if it was the greatest move. Giving up Buck might have been a mistake, but I hope it works out. BTW - Gerry the Hun is a frickin' genius!!! This deal was dead earlier today.

I didn't know movies could be so bad

I think I've just seen two of the worst movies in the history of movie making. Following are brief comments on each.

I Accuse My Parents(1944) IMDb listing
In the movie, Jimmy Wilson (Robert Lowell), who is neglected by his alcoholic parents, enters into a life of crime in order to impress his girlfriend, a singer at an area nightclub. The cast in the movie was forgettable for the most part. The only one who really sticks in my mind was Mary Beth Hughes, who played Jimmy's girlfriend Kitty Reed. She had an awesome singing voice. If you wanna know more about the plot, read the summary that can be found by following the IMDb link. The movie was one of the last filmed in an era where movies always taught morals, and soon after, the focus in Hollywood switched over to real life. Thank goodness that era ended. I'll give it a 2/10 simply because I didn't ever roll my eyes while watching the movie (maybe because I was too tired).
Eegah (1962) IMDb listing
Ranked 5th on the IMDb Bottom 100 I thought that the modern horror movies like Scream (II, III), and I Know What You Did Last Summer were the worst of horror movies. Boy was I in for a surprise. Eegah (Richard Kiel), a giant caveman, basically falls in love with this teenage chick and all hell breaks loose. Kiel (who also was in the movies Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me as Jaws, and Happy Gilmore as Mr. Larson) was the only redeeming quality the movie had, as I like him. The movie gets a 1/10 because of Kiel, and only because of Kiel.
What was I thinking when I sat down to watch these???
That's easy. My dad got these two movies from Netflix as part of the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" series, which basically makes really bad movies tolerable by cracking jokes throughout. It's the only way possible to watch some movies. Too bad the series was cancelled in 1999, after 197 episodes, as Gigli would have been a perfect candidate for the show. I'll give the series an 8/10 because although there are some stupid parts, it makes really bad movies bearable.

not much to say

well... i got the tire on right. Thankfully I aint got too much to do this week, so I can take it easy before I'm working a ZZ Top - Hank Williams Jr. concert on Saturday. That should be interesting, 15,000+ people, many of 'em wasted. *rolls eyes* But it pays AND I'm getting to hear them free, so it's all good :).

mass frustration

Well... I finally did it. I finally put a new rear tire on my motorcycle. But I had a problem. It looks like there's a hole in the inner tube, so it's leaking really bad. Tomorrow I'm gonna have to take it back off my bike, take the tire back off the rim, and see if i can patch the tube. I swear that Ruby (my bike) is more trouble than she's worth, but what do you expect from a sixteen year old (she's an '88)? ARGH!!!

I swear I'm not hitting on you

For some reason, it always seems like people get the impression that I'm hitting on gals on message boards. I don't get it. Not at all. I'm really not... I swear.
