The endangered species carousel

Went to Zoolights on Tuesday night at the Phoenix Zoo. When we walked in, immediately somebody(a zoo employee) took our picture, and they were like “you can pick up the photo on the way out,” but we were so surprised that there was no way either one of us was going to want to see what leprositic looks of terror on our faces that were captured on digifilm. Something of a poor man’s paparazzi, it was a schlock and awe tactic to say the least. We did not retrieve the picture upon exit.

The dancing trees light show is amazing. We watched it 3 times. There was an energetic older man who video-recorded the entire thing on his camera and showed it to us…which mostly just made me think how I need to get married so that I don’t end up like one of those lonely wandering old men who spend their time people watching in public places and chatting it up with young strangers. But alas, I know it is to be my destiny.

They have a Komodo dragon exhibit now. As I’ve mentioned before, the Phoenix Zoo keeps getting better all the time.

While I was recovering from surgery a while ago, I read a copy of “Peter Pan” which had been given to me as a gift for xmas 2007 with the inscription “to the boy who will always be my Peter Pan.” Well as we all know…Wendys come and go, but Peter Pan remains in neverland…so long as children are gay and innocent and heartless.

I will be going to Las Vegas again in January for the annual Consumer Electronics Show and staying at The Flamingo. Last time I was in Vegas I won some money…would like to win some more. Just need to find myself a nice “White Ice” slot machine.

diary of a wandering recluse

Saturday night I drank a bottle of wine, wrote some lyrics and watched “Diamonds Are Forever” with Sean Connery. Rudd wanted me to go with him to the casino, but I’m not going to the stupid Indian casino, nobody is going to win anything there. And I realize that they just want to go for fun, but the ambiance at an Indian casino isn’t all that rewarding itself. It’s mostly just white trash and riff raff…which leads you to self reflect while you’re there… “am i white trash and riff raff since I’m here too?” which pretty much ruins any enjoyable feeling you get from the experience. That reminds me, there’s this new Indian casino I saw a billboard for and it’s called “Sol Casino.” And I looked at it and thought “a casino called S.O.L.? what kind of idiot would gamble there?” Anyway, I want to try to take a trip to Vegas and do some serious gambling, so I’m saving for that.

Went to the Phoenix Zoo today with Shannon. Man, that place keeps getting better all the time. There was a new elephant exhibit that wasn’t there when we went last year. All in all, the Phoenix Zoo has come a long way in the last few years, and its something we should be very proud of.

I keep trying to finish this album, but I’m constantly getting sidetracked. I’m too busy to hold everything together that I’m trying to do. I need to just lock myself in my room and work work work. Plus my first three albums were mdeiocre rushed efforts that were done extremely on the cheap, and I’m trying to take my time and see if I can capture the kind of sound I want to create.
