An old man during spring break.

This year on spring break I bought a filing cabinet, saw Frost/Nixon and bought a large tea ball to make iced tea.

I thought Frost/Nixon was a little more interesting than I imagined. Frank Langella really brought Nixon to life. On one hand, it was a bit of a no brainer in that Langella is a great actor, but I didn’t think I would really care as Nixon has been impersonated by so many people I didn’t think it would be interesting. However, Langella was great. Even greater still was the crowd at Frost/Nixon at 3:00 on a Thursday. Lot’s of elderly people leaning over to each other yelling “What did he say?” with their cell phones endlessly ringing and laughing at Nixon-isms that I am pretty sure were not included to be funny. It was a far cry from what I was hoping would be playing over the break at the $3 theater this week. I was hoping for the new Friday the Thirteenth chapter. But alas, I had to trade one scary guy for another. 

Buying a file cabinet is a depressing thing. I believe it is the last nail in the “I’m old” coffin until I go on medicare. I am approaching 39, so I guess I should be glad that I have a spring break. I don’t really like partying that much anyway. The truth is, I am more sad about being excited about the file cabinet more than the actual buying it. All the papers in the office are in one place. My quality of life is really up because of that. Seriously.  

Something else that is making me feel pretty old is moving closer to relating to later, post-Berlin Lou Reed albums (that I got from the library, no less). He was pretty good after he was good. 

Anyway, I am going to round out spring break by stopping by the post office to pay the rent, then the record store to fill a hole in my Saxon collection. I know the vacuum cleaner need to go to the shop, but I am going to save that for another day. I might just blow up from excitement. 

I have been submitting reviews to Razorcake Magazine. I am really excited to have some record reviews coming up in issue #49, so take a look if you get a chance. Razorcake is one of my favorite music mags and I am psyched to be contributing.

 Crackpot: The Obsessions of John Waters

I have not had much to write about this week, but I did come across this book having its price lowered on Amazon. Not to promote Amazon, but this thing is on clearance for $4.00 and it is one of my favorite books of essays. I have read this book again and again. So I thought I would pass that information along for no reason.

Waters is as compelling as a writer as he is as a filmmaker. There is an article about the Baltimore teen dance television show that inspired Hairspray. There is also a memoir about his work with prisoners, an interview with Pia Zadora, and loads of movie references. It is highly recommended for fans of the man, or just movies in general.

 Cramhole #3

I finally got #3 off to the printers today. Both Dorothy Gambrell and Mr. Chen have returned with drawings for #3. Also, Danny Martin who draws Publick Occurances has contributed to this issue. I feel like this is the best one yet. I am hoping to put together a sort of “release party” in April. I am working on getting Vinyl Scrapyard around for a few more screenings and have been submitting record reviews to Razorcake and going to school full time and doing an internship. I am hoping to work on a novel I have outlined over the summer, so I am staying busy myself. With Mr. Chen leaving Tucson, I am moving slower as he was my technical adviser on most production issues. I am still pretty computer illiterate, but the actual comic is at the printer, so keep an eye out and I’ll write in with any updates.

INtoxica Radio With Howie Pyro 

I have just recently had all the ducks line up so I can listen to podcasts. I have been somewhat lax in keeping up with modern times, but all the crap information congealing in dark places due to the internet is made up for by this awesome podcast. Intoxica Radio is the coolest thing I have heard in a long time. This podcast is so good, it makes me embarrassed to be doing a radio show. Not that it needs my endorsement, but you should check it out. Obscure rock n’ roll interjected with weird records. The host is funny and knowledgeable. Intoxica Radio reminds me of that famous sentiment relating to Ed Wood movies. Whatever time you put it on, it feels like three in the morning. For fans of Rock n’ Roll, it is essential listening.
