Jeremy finally posted his "Naked Driving" movie from four years ago onto Youtube (it was basically made for that site way before its time).It’s hard to imagine something like that being a blast from the past, since it just feels like yesterday. My cosuin Dave put it on his Facebook, too. I always repsected his filmmaking knowhow since I was a wee lad, so the fact that he liked it that much is quite the honour. In fact, Jeremy always did remind me of my cousin Dave in some charismatic way.
Though I haven’t watched much Coranation Street in my years, I could not help but be horrified Jason Grimshaw jumping out the window at his wedding with Sarah Louise Platt. Get your head together, man! Jo and I have undertaken wee marathons of the 60's mystery series "The Prisoner", there's a show that really holds up after all these years.
I went to a birthday party on Sat night for Jo’s friend Jake that involved dressing like the Dude of Honour. I loved themed parties. He seemed impressed that everyone looked like he did. Swoopy bangs, funky t-shirts, tight jeans, I’m all about that, but my beard was not up to snuff, so a friend of his, who also looked like Jake, painted some mascara on my face from her makeup brush. The party house was pretty awesome, definatlely worthy of party-house standards, records on the walls, Super Nintendo, BBQ, Autobot Blaster (NOT A WORKING RADIO), it was a lot like Jeremy's old party house. Totally awesome, as is Jo, smitten city? I think so.
Tonight is the last night we’ll ever see Dead Mike again. Until July. I’d like to think that even though he’ll have the time of his life in Chinazbekurkstan, partying with us Canuckleheads is impossible to beat. Especially when "speed game" is involved. Luckily for him, he’ll be back in time for the Canada Cup of Beer / peak Grousse Grind season / dry humps.
Tomorrow I start my career as an extra on the set of the TV show "Pain-Killer Jane". I watched it the other day for research purposes, and it seems pretty cool, very dystopian, very "Dark Angel", based on a comic book, I like the sound of that. I still can’t get the charred burrito stain of my shoe, though. Ah well, I’ll have time to work on it while on the sky train to somewhere in Maple Ridge.
Also, if anyone from Nanaimo is reading this, Andrea needs a room mate! She’s good people, probably better than the lame-ass room mate you have now. Or if you don't have a room mate, then what are you waiting for?!
