this summer has been really radical.

After a week long stint in michigan where i did amazing things from 10-2am everyday I came back to chicago only to attend the great pitchfork music festival last weekend. I ate surprisingly really good food there including lots of fuze juice drink for a dollar, soy ice creams, blackened catfish po boys, coconut curry, black bean patties, blah blah.
De LA Soul was the best show of the weekend. I saw yoko ono and she was incredibly weird. I will remember that performance forever. Also, of montreal put on a great show while stephan malkamus had no band and played boringly. I liked mastadon and Battles too.

Monday i spent the whole day on the computer looking up shit to do in europe and then i skated infront of the house for hour or so. Yesturday was a my last day at work until september and it was a shitty one for sure. It rained in the morning so i didnt ride my bike which i hate and then there a dozen machines with problems, some of which i couldnt even figure out. By the time 5 oclock came around i wanted to die and had to take the fucking busy blue line home and stand in a crowded car like a schmuck when i could have been flying by cars on my fuji.

I made some spagetti and then rode my bike downtown to the same location i had just came from and met mike out front to watch TOTO. Earlier during my shitty day at work my friend/manager Danial gave me 4 free tickets to the show.

The show was mostly spent buying really expensive booze and waiting for the band to get to their hits. They play really well but their other songs werent as rocking as a 10 minute Rosanna, and then Hold the Line after an extended jam, and finally closing with a perfect version of Africa. It was ridiculous. There were lots of good people watching opportunities i took advantage of . I tried to mimic the guy dancing next to me with 2 drinks in his hands. he had a sleeveless shirt and shorts so i rolled up my pants and sleeves and practiced some of his moves. It felt really good, he must be mystical.

Today im ready to jam. I gotta go downtown to return some equipment and pick up a copy of my film and go to the gym and then we are having a bbq tonight! whoo

I took a stress test in my personal wellness class on monday. If you were at like 150 you were okay but watch out. If you had up to 300 stress was making your body function incorrectly and you should see a doctor. I had a score of 450. Tuesday night I got angry for no reason and told everyone to fuck off like a little kid. Today im going to quit or take an absense at one of my jobs so i can regain my focus on school.

But in good news I got the annimation department excited about my mustache flick and i got a super cool editor and today im going to pick up lots of costumes. My bosses at the doc center like me and are giving me extra hours and I picked out my final 18 credits for my last semester.

My house is freeeeezing right now and my nose woke up stuffy heh. This weekend im going to spend almost entirely with my editor working on the film. Monday night im going to skip class with karli and go out on a date. Tuesday im taking the day off work to play guitar heros 2 all afternoon before class. It will be joyous.

fuckin p - diddy came to work today and i stole his bagels and mini boxed cereals.

A secret service agent aprehended a friend of mine for trying to film Bush by our school thursday.

I learned i have 8 percent body fat now- which is considered athletic. I just like riding my 10 speed and listening to the doobies.

HAve been filming a lot for the mustache film. HAving a party saturday here in chicago to buy me a harddrive to edit it on.

I went over in my bank account- i dont know how, i have money, they charged me 75 bucks stink fisters.

Mike krause has been living with us for a few weeks now. ITs good peoples. Happy birthday today mike.

I saw the departed and like it alot.

I cant fucking wait any longer for this tenacious D movie. radical

yacht rock screening on sunday was a blast- got to hang out with a lot of good peoples from the michigan area.

I met this guy named Ronn Pitts whose 70 years old and has been filming for over 51 years. He used to hang out with muhammed ali and martin luthor king and film all their shit - like the marches and the rumble in the jungle. He used to hang out with william freidken the director of the exocist. He thinks Im creative! He was in the house the moments before they killed those black panthers in chicago- living legend this guy. First black camera operator.

So its been a few weeks. Im making a film about mustaches. I interviewed people at the anti bush rally on thursday about whether he would be a better leader with one. Also i went to mustache party where no one had a mustache. Last weekend i went on a 4 day bender ending on bbq on the back porch. Saw priestess for the 4th time and recorded some awesome video of them. My bike crank fell off downtown this week and then i got stormed on and froze for 4-8 hours. trying to make a professional looking film might give me an ulcer. Im usually having 12 hour days every weekday and getting trashed on the weekends to forget about them. Its hard on the body. They are redoing the main road that takes me downtown so now ill be able to get downtown minutes faster and way smoother... on my bicycle. I saw the departed last night. Its awesome. Sunday is a yacht rock screening. Im excited fer that business.

I had an interview to be an intern on the show Cold Case Files with bill kurtis on A&E. If i get the job ill be scheduling flights, getting coffee, editing and transcribing footage and bunch of other shit i dont want to do but will have to say okay. I kind of secretly hope they dont call me back because im too busy. but i guess its not a secret anymore
