The Other Cheek

Sometimes I lose track of time. It often escapes me.

The opening day of Trout season (Fly Only) is this Saturday. Its going to be 50 degrees and partly sunny. Thats about 40 degrees warmer than when Justin and I went two years ago. The sun still comes up at the same time though. The question you have to ask yourself is: Do I want to stay in bed or do I want to wet my pole. Uh...

Finally earned my GOLD Card at Dave and Buster's last night. It only took me ten years to do so. Thats about nine years longer than it took Hal and Okie to earn their Gold Card. Of course they also earned enough tickets to buy the night vision goggles. Is Okie still mad at us? Does he still know why? Maybe he needs to start reading the Hippo's Ass.

Years ago I remember countless arguments in homeroom about who was the best rock guitarist. Most thoght it was one man: Eddie Van Halen was a Rock God. May still be, but gods usually don't age this badly. Now I know why Valerie Bertinelli left him.

Speaking of Rock legends....If you were accused of shooting your girlfriend/bedpartner with a shot gun, the last thing you want to look like in court is an ad for the Science Center Static Ball of Energy. Phil...its over man.

Every year I plop down my money and fillout my brackets during March Madness. Every year I know next to nothing about the teams that are playing. Every year I get my hopes up and make a run for the pot of money. Every year I lose. Stupid UCONN. Stupid TEXAS. Stupid MEMPHIS.

Because it was featured on LOST, I read, Watership Down, A Wrinkle in Time, The Third Policeman, and Lancelot. I draw the line at Judy Blume. Hello God? Its me Scott. Please make the LOST producers follow the 24 model of how to successfully run a show in primetime. Three weeks seems like a long time between new episodes.

I remember Tom Cruise in TAPS. Crazy guy in the end screaming, "Its Fucking beautiful, Man!" Back then I never liked him in the movies. Never liked his acting. As the years went by I warmed to his cockyness on the screen but never to the point of accepting him as talented. Now, what has it been, 20 years? 23 years? I still don't like him. Now more than ever. He's still a guy screaming. It IS fun watching him implode though.

Went looking at an iPod today. It holds 7,500 songs. That's more than 650 albums. Approximately 30,000 minutes of music. If you played every song without repeating, 24 hours a day, it would take you 20 days to hear every song.

I pulled out an old Springsteen album the other day. Yes I said album. The Wild, the Innocent and the E-Street Shuffle. I haven't played this record in about 15 years.

Battlestar Galactica rocks. Just finished watching the first season. Trying to find am inexpensive used copy of Season 2.0 on eBay. Years ago I remember watching the original series. I remember building the models of the Cylon fighters; collecting the bubblegum trading cards; reading the comic book; wishing for the toys at Christmas. It seemed like that show was on for years.

The Original series was only on for one year.

This year will mark ten years of the Fall Fishing Trip. Joe M.'s fishing pole is still sitting on the bottom of Clear Lake. Time escapes me.

Thank You
