>The Empty Audience II

>So what happens if you play a concert and nobody you know comes?
Beteen each song I scan the audience with my eyes. Not one familar face. Just a bunch of cardboard cutouts. Am I doing this for myself? Is there any value in doing something if nobody cares?



>Ever feel trapped in time? My life seems to be a neverending parade of little white numbered squares. Within each square is a circle with more numbers and pointers that spin wildly.

Every day the same thing. Every week more of the same. I’m trapped because I can’t come up with anything that might break the chain of time.

Wake up, Go to work, eat lunch, work more, come home, watch tv, go to bed. Repeat until Saturday. Wake up, watch tv, go to sleep. Sunday: Wake up, go to Mom’s, come home, watch tv, go to sleep.

It’s not that that’s all I can do. It’s all I can think of doing. I want to go somewhere, but where? Where could I go that would be worth the trip. Wherver I go, There I am. I don’t really enjoy going places alone, but to go with someone else who doen’t appreciate it is even worse. When I go somewhere with someone I feel rushed and gloss over all the details so they won’t be bored. If I go alone, I feel… alone. What’s a guy supposed to do? Why bother. Stay home and watch TV. It’s better and cheaper than travel anyway.

>A surefire headache cure

>If you come home from work feeling tired and have a headache I have a surefire cure for you.
Take some aspirin and a relaxing shower. About 15 minutes should do and the headache is noticeably lessened or gone completely. Maybe it’s just the standing. Maybe it’s the warm water. I don’t know but It almost always works for me.

>The Ultimate Lost Father Film

>I just finished watching “Frequency” with Dennis Quaid and James Caviezel. I’ve seen it before but it has been many years. It’s about a cop who due to hightened aurora activity is able to talk through time to his dead father 30 years ago on his dad’s old ham radio. They are able to solve a cold case. I don’t want to give too much away here but I will tell you that if you’re father is dead, you should see this movie. Make it number one on your “to see” list. Every man who lost his father wishes he could talk to him again.

>Quick Review : Taco Bell Volcano – Hot? NOT!

>It has been a while since I’ve been to Taco Bell. I thought I would give it a try since it was near a movie theater where I was going. I got the Volcano Box which included a Volcano Taco, Volcano Burrito, regular taco, cinnimon crispy things and a drink.

You might expect from their commercials with red-faced people acting like they ate a spicy hot meal that the taco might actually be spicy. Well, on a hottness scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 0.5. I added some Fire Hot Sauce to make up for the disapponitment. The burrito, being of a nice large size rated about 0.25 on the hottness scale.
I had the same experiences eating Wendy’s spicy chicken sandwitch, Popeye’s spicy chicken, Churches Spicy chicken and Las Palapas Hot sauce. Totally disappointing.
I wonder where restaurants get the idea that their food is spicy? This false advertising has to stop! It used to be illegal to engage in false advertising. Somebody should do something about it.


>The coming of the weekend is a bittersweet event.
It’s good to not have to go to work. It’s bad to be alone with my thoughts.
I seem to be slipping down the hole. I must go back to my buddhism studies.
