This was on washingtonpost.com:
"Imagine our surprise Wednesday to read in the Israeli paper Haaretz (online), that Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Abu Mazen, meeting recently with militants to enlist their support for a truce with Israel, said that, when they met in Aqaba, President Bush had told him this: " God told me to strike at al Qaeda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam [ Hussein], which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them." "
More about my Bret Michaels adventure to come later.
NOTHIN' BUT A GOOD TIME
Hola amigos--I know it's been a while since I rapped at ya (Thank you Jim Anchower). Anyway, I went down to Miami for a few days last week--good fun. Had some sushi, had some sake, got some sun and I bought some pants. I got to go see The Cure in West Palm Beach--man, Boy George has really let himself go. To be honest, I never really listened to The Cure other than the popular songs that everyone knows so I really only recognized a couple of songs. It was still a good show, and a perfect warm-up to what I would experience just a couple of days later, although unbeknownst to me what my future would be.
Before I left, a friend of mine was contracted to shoot a music video. Now, I didn't know who the video was for but I was graciously offered the opportunity to work as a production assistant (fancy name for peon) on the video. All that I was told was that it was for a country music artist. This brief description did not prepare for the news of whom it would be, though. Upon my return, I learned that we would be shooting a video for Bret Michaels from Poison. That's right...you can open up and say ahhh! Apparently, Bret is crossing-over into country. So, the next day, we were on our way to shoot a music video for Bret Michaels..........................................
Tune in tomorrow for Part 2: The Shoot
Hey folks--I'm back from Florida and, believe it or not, I'm on my way to help shoot a Bret Michaels video. Come back soon--there'll be plenty of new tales to tell.
Hello friends--I'm afraid that today has been rather uneventful, so there's not much news to report. Also, I regret to report that I will be absent from work next week, so I will not be updating until the following week. Hopefully, Mac will keep us entertained by posting here as well as on Tomfool
. I will be back, though, I will be back...
reminds me of that internet company that Homer
started--Hyperglobomega-something or other.
There really haven't been any good quotes or anything in the office today--it might be because Barry has been out of the office all fucking day. Even the assembling of the AV cart was rather unexciting. One thing from yesterday that was kind of funny though, I'll set it up first. Barry will be going on vacation in a week. In years past, when Barry vacates, I take the opportunity to straighten things up around the office--organize things, throw useless shit out, etc. Barry is always very troubled about this upon his return. Yesterday, he asked me not to do anything like that. Now, the only real reason that I do it anyway is just to kill some fucking time--I literally have nothing else to do but surf the net--all day long. I'm not exaggerating, either. It was just funny to me that the one time that I actually take it upon myself to do some work while I'm at work, I'm discouraged from doing it. Barry also said that he, himself, would do it when he got back, if he "has time". Now, Barry doesn't have any more to do than I do so I can't figure out why he wouldn't have time...and that's the end of that.
