Glass Screener

Passes

The sequel to the sequel

I receved passes and have watched several times Split. Unbreakable had some memories but I only remember certian scenes.

The horror movie screeners usually have an apperance by The Austin Horror Society. Since their last management change attendance in the facebook group has declined in both attendance and enthusiasm. While in line getting our wristbands we were asked if we reserved passes through AHS. We declined and got our own passes through Slyfox.

While we are waiting for the screener to start some of the bigger production movies have extra swag bags when they showed it earlier today at the Alamo Draft house. I’m sure you have to actually be someone to get invited to a screener then. One day at a time. One day at a time. I posted the above on Instagram as a best hope in getting selected for a grab bag. They usually have a tshirt and some other goodies the are worth the post. Only a small handful of times I have over heard someone mentioning something about a movie shirt. In Austin, movies get filmed so conversation went “maybe he’s apart of the crew” does get mistaken. I would never claim credit for work I didn’t help create, however it is cool to be guilty by association on the occasion.

Ok so the contest happened and i didnt win. Whaa. But, my lovely wife did get picked, and got not 1 t-shirt in her size and in the design she wanted, but a 2nd tshirt as well, in the same perfect size. Yaaaaay!

Anyways, the movie was really good. I may need to watch a second time to fully understand the nuainces and nods that m. Night is capable with his ‘twiiists!’. I personally enjoyed seeing Bruce Willis again in his role as a hero. I always saw him as a bit of a father figure. And now seeing him very grey reminds me of time does not escape us. Ececept Bruce Willis will never stop being a bad ass. Like seriously though, every movie, he is the sterotype hero action, bad guy gunna lose that keeps surprizing you. Has anyone thought of him as a batman role?

There isnt a stinger, and may be a fourth eventhough everyone dies, but not their stories.. opps spoiler!

Friendsgiving break

So I didn’t do any of the writing I was expecting to get done. Big shocker, I know.

I did spend the time re-energizing. I realized how much sleep I had missed. Usually after staying up late, and back up early the next morning drains on me. I’ll crave those extra sleeping hours, eventually getting them back over the next few days.

We stayed up late on Thursday night watching the Joe Bob Briggs last drive in Turkey edition. I made it to see what the last movie was and had to call it quits.

I love hibernating during the colder months.

Winter is coming

The

The weather in Texas is under-ratedily talked about I feel. The fall and spring is about as bipolar as it gets. Where it can be a common autonomous desicison to use your vehicles air conditioning and heater in the same day.

Hoodies are common uniform, during winter, the outside temperatures determine how many said hoodies are worn in layers for that given day. Its a crap shoot if you guessed correctly and will spend the day suffering carrying extra jackets around because the sun came out and helped you with a weird Tanline. Or guessed too few, and are forced to painfully shiver from vehicle to building.

I usually like to play it safe. The comfy t-shirt base layer, the hoodie, and if its in the 40s. My jacket comes out. Ive always had big coats. Im not exactly a small guy, but big coats just make more since. Im protected from all most of the elements that I would encounter.

Cold? I’m warm.

Freezing cold? Extra hoodie, I’m still good.

Raining? water resistant.

Wind? Makes me wore thicker pants. Heat? It comes off.

But why does someone feel the need to judge how big my coat is by how cold it currently is.

“It’s not THAT cold!” Bitch, I’m warm and comfy, you can fuck the hell right off!

Middle of December

It’s almost the middle of december. This is usually the height of hibernation time. Day in and day out of jammies, comfort food, and random naps at all hours of the day or night. I’m not getting to do alot of that. Some is responsibilities. Employment obligations, family dependents, life in general. But this time is a little different. I have side hustle business that I am trying to get off the ground and make it a real thing. Getting bit by this entrepreneur bug, gives me a little hope that life can get better and provides a purpose for creating something with my time, instead of wasting in standing in a corner with my phone in my face.

Yard birds

During the last conversations with my neighbor/landlord. We had asked about if he needed a chicken sitter for his backyard coop that he is. He seemed happy to talk about them and gave us permission to keep a small flock of our own.

I have never kept chickens before, I could count how many times ive been close enough to touch a chicken on one hand.

But here we are. Among the chickening. Shopping for a decent coop will be a pain in the ass im sure, but picking out the pullets will be fun to see Danger boy excited to have pets. Even if they are just yard birds.

Chickens seem to act like content people on auto-pilot i feel. Getting into other peoples affairs. Gossiping in matters to stir up problems. Establishing a crude pecking order to determine who gets the favored spot. This should be very familar to anyone becoming complacent with their surroundings. Trying to make their life just a little more joyful. Hunting and pecking through through the grass to try to find something tasty to stuff in their gullet. Not unlike finding a place that sells cakes pops and a starbucks for the basic whitegirl. And not sharing with the others, because it is expected that the other hens would not share with them. Dog eat dog, chicken will feed itself, ive heard they may eat other pretty things that are found in the yard. But not collecting

Rick Springfield Day

I never imagined I’d ever be at a concert like this. I didnt think these bands still toured, much less still produced new albums. Rick Springfield wished that he had Jessie’s girl, and my wife had childhood dreams of being said Jessie’s girl. So, there is no guess to what brought me to this event. I wouldn’t say that Rick Springfield and the other bands that are on the tour were one hit wonders, they were artists of their time.

And it was just before my time, and not my era I guess. I remember seeing a loverboy album cover on cassette tape or a poster in my cousin/maybe young uncles room when I was a kid about ’86. I thought the band name had silly and I guess inappropriate name to be repeated without humor from my step-grandmother Eileen. I still dont think I’ve ever heard a single song from them. Which beyond Jenny from Tommy Tutone and the forementioned Jessie’s girl, I’m going to be hearing these songs for the first time. I’m not fully excited for myself, much more like being able to provide a bucket list item being checked off for her.

I’ll get to be at my show next week for Days N Daze and Bridge City Sinners. Which I’ve been told is BCS’s first time in Austin. Which is historical to say the least. I cant wait for that. Everyone I’ve introduced them to, just loves Libby and her awesome acoustic Band.

The new house

I’m getting my own place again. I really despise moving day. The day lasts forever, rarely people that I expect to show up do. Hoping it doesn’t rain. Something breaks, something given away that shouldn’t have been.

A big anxiety is not being able to shower for lack or towels, cant make food because the kitchen is a wreck. Cant sleep because sheets are hidden somewhere.

I guess if a few of those things were taken care of it would be more tolerable. I always end up doing most of the lifting though.

My housing situation

Imagine buying a cheap whore for the evening. You bought her about $120 worth of drinks, and paid her $1000 to let her know you are interested. It rains as you are taking her by your place, she gets all wet and shows you what it’s like. And she is soaking wet. Like ‘FLOODED’ you park the car and go down to take a look at this hot wet mess. And you notice the herpies from the backwash of all her clients down the line. You claim issue that this is gross and you can’t put my things in that. Then she shows you her ass, well how about some of this Anal. It smells like a litterbox and is disgusting. You decline that offer as well. She says well I just spit out my last customer. So how about a makeout session and a handjob. Her knuckles looked like she punched holes in the walls, her hands were splintered with wood. Her mouth was like she smoked more than an entire VFW hall. Just seeing what she had to offer makes you want a hot shower with lava soap. You decline all of her offers and ask for your $1000 back so you can go get something beautiful and cared for so you can get some loving that you saw 4 blocks over. Even though you know full well she is prolly going to try and keep that $1000 and you are just hoping she doesn’t call her pimp for not giving the rest of the money you agreed upon. She even says she will take her valtrax for the herpies. It’s not going to work fast enough to repair that damage. You just want you money back so you can that pretty thing with that nice bro pimp.
