Lords of Dogtown

dog town coverI was really skeptical when I started seeing Lords of Dogtown tv-spots. Is a fictionalization really necessary if there is already an excellent documentary. I looked into it and found out that the script for this movie was apparently written by the writer/director of the documentary, so I’m going to hold off judgment. They also got the production designer from Tank Girl to direct. That’s good right? I mean Naomi Watts survived that and it only took six more years for people to appreciate her.


Avian Friend

apartment birdLittle guy was sitting on my door step when I came home monday evening. I live on the third floor, so I knew it was going to take some effort to get the bird outside. I approached the bird slowly with my arms outstretched attempting to shoo it towards the stairwell. Like the cows of my childhood… he went straight for the closed window (maybe it wasn’t like a cow). I wasn’t having any of this, so I just grabbed a trash bag and caught him pretty easily. Within moments he was outside with only minimal stress. The return linkage on the door had been broken. Well, I’m all shored up for good deeds for the rest of the year. expect the worst ;O)
