really, its the pilot fish that is the king of the ocean. the pilot fish eats the parasites off the shark. follows the shark around for its entire life, and never gets eaten.

they are like the personal assistants.
the working class heroes.

the pilot fish.


today i am super obsessed with the stuart sketch on madtv. michael mcdonald XI is hilarious. and so is the mom.

bindi is annoying.

so are people that write songs barefoot in the rainforest.


gosh. i just felt a tinge of satisfaction at the thought that maybe lindsay going gay will promote all young women to gay.
so all the women will go gay, and then all that will be left will be the straight men. all alone. like the dumbasses they are.


lindsay is making gay the new straight.
i am making beard the new shave.
lets make bike the new car
and sober the new drunk.

pie the new cake
dog the new cat.

hi the new bye
smile the new frown.


i like the new term "beard rock" as quoted in this month's vanity fair. we all know i am a fan of the beard, and i am a groupie of minor sorts. and we all know i have crushes on people like jim james, etc.

so i just love saying 'beard rock'. yesterday in bolinas with mia on the beach, she kept saying "yo" and i kept saying "oh look at that beautiful beard-rock boy". so it was fun for all.

beard rock. oh they are such beautiful boys.

also, whats great is that my girlfriends here think guys with beards are gross. so i kind of have them all to myself. yummy.


its been hot here. we swam in the pacific yesterday.

gettin' it

post brought to you by too $hort. uh. feel it niggas. i feel it in every cell.

Now let me holler at ya partner, spit this game
in you ear for a minute, quit complaining
Bout how you can't spend it cause you ain't got it
You got what it takes but not enough to get started
I hope you get the message, no it's not a test it's
Just me ridin legit, they can't arrest me or bust me
I'm still hungry, I want some more stuff
Get fat and watch my whole crew blow up
So get yours, and buy my new album
Peep the game and don't be like Calvin
Get everything you want, get real, get you mail
Get your girl to make bail and get your ass out of jail
You should be gettin it, everything you want
Everything you dreamed of, never have to front
you shoulf be gettin it, gettin money
I'm talking bout you black, don't laugh it aint funny
You should get a good lawyer, like Johnny Cochran
Swear to tell the truth, hell no I didn't pop him
Get your kids in school, so they can get an education
Get a degree, and take a vacation
You see I got all my game from the streets of California
Young millionaire with no high school diploma
Livin real good, taking care of my folks
roll up a fat one for the players to smoke
Short Dawg in the house, I know you aint trippin
Cause Life is Too $hort you gotta Get In Where You Fit In
Stop looking for what you never seem to find
It ain't what you think you got to read between the lines
Cause life ain't long, for a young black man
Tryin to make money doing all he can
Sellin dope don't ya hope he would go to classB
But the boy makes money and he makes it fast
with the twenties on top and the fifties on the bottom
I fuck the top notches oh yes we got em
It's been a long time since I first got down
But I still keep makin these funky sounds
Get your money man
Get yours

Chorus: P-Funk

You should be gettin it
Get it while the gettin is good, get it while you can
you should be gettin it
Get it while the gettin is good (repeat as necessary)

Verse Two: Too $hort

I know you tired of being broke just hanging out
You gotta lot a dreams but you can't get out
The first thing you need to do is set your self some goals
Think positive, everything else is old
and work hard, never stop hustlin
Cause they just love to see the black man strugglin
(So what are you saying Todd?)
It's time to come up, put your dollar bills in the air
He said meet me at the White House and I was there
Cause I'm one in a million, black man rising
They wanna keep me down but I always surprise em
Spend my money in the hood, I know it's all good
and you should do the same I told you peep the game
Too $hort, you know I'm the man
I lend my brother a hand cause I know I can
I keep going and goin but I'm not the pink bunny
I'm not beatin on a drum I never stop thinkin money
I'm gettin all I can if you don't ya slip
I can't wait to get to heaven just to have a grip
When I was broke, I couldn't afford a meal
But now I'm now rich I can't be fake I gots to keep it real
It's been a long time baby since I first got down
But it still keep making these funky sounds
i got caught sailing.
when i was five........

tonight i went sailing drop-of-the-hat last-of-the-minute seat-of-the-pants at 5pm after getting a "lets go sailing" message from a stranger on so i drove to the sausa and sailed.

i was UNDER the golden gate. i've been waiting for my chance. to be under it. and i finally got it. 2 years later. well, actually 3! i've been here for 3 years.

the company was nice. the weather nice. the breeze choppy.

i hope he asks me again. its one of those things though, where you meet cool people, and its kind of all in their court. they have teh boat. they are in charge. alls you can do is smile and say you had a nice time.

wells i hopes they likes me.


you know whats happening (and this is great.) whats happening is that loans are tired of calling for collections - tired of no one being able to pay their minimum rates. and discounting payments, lowering interest rates, just to get a freakin' payment in.

they finally believe us when we as a collective say: "i can't pay that right now." so many of us have said that- whether we like to admit it or not, and now they are finally having to bend, because small payment, is better than no payment.

i know this has been happening for some time now, with housing, etc. but its finally trickled down into small 1000 dollar loans. smalltime things.

and i couldn't be happier.
