not a whole lot going on with me, for those of you who don't keep in touch through facebook.

i'm sort of helping my friend john to promote a film that'll be coming to the theater he works at later this month. it's called dead snow, and it's chock-full of nazi zombie madness. don't worry, though, jews - i still love you.

i've already seen the film, but it's still exciting to help him get people in the theater, because if the theater owners notice a larger attendance than usual, they'll probably start screening some more crazy shit like this. i for one would LOVE to get them to screen lars von trier's antichrist, for example. there's even a slight suggestion that we could convince them to screen older cult films if they're cheap enough to secure the rights to! oh, dear. what to choose?

this reminds me a lot of the days, years ago now,  when i was doing my little part to street team alongside jesse and co. when the lucha libre shows were starting up at the congress theater in chicago. now? that location is hosting dragon gate USA events.

but, besides all of that, not much is new.

oh, i'll be 30 in 23 days.

i was just watching freestyle: the art of rhyme, and it's amazing how a city like chicago can stay with you years after you leave it. in one scene, mc juice was walking down the street and pontificating on the nature of freestyles, and i was like "OH, SNAPS! he's right across from penny's noodle shop!"

i just bought inner city hoodlum, by donald goines saturday night. i can't believe this guy only wrote for 4 years. this book was actually published after he was killed. there's something about a book where a kid gets half his skull shot off on the first page that makes me want to keep reading it. something tells me this won't take as long as pimp did.

so, i was hanging out with hardcori since late tuesday night, and i had my phone turned off the whole time. this meant that i missed a call from devin, asking if i wanted to check out this sleepytime gorilla museum show in late april. seems like one of the people who was originally scheduled to join him at the show might not be able to come, so this might mean that i get to go in their stead. i've never heard sgm, but i'm going to take some time to make myself familiar with their three studio albums. i'll be sure to let you all know my thoughts whether i end up going to the concert or not.

speaking of corinne, she was making a felt pin for someone today. it was hella tight. she cut out all these cute little chunks of felt and made a groovy izod-inspired gator. it got me in mind of having her make one for me, as well. i'll have to sketch it out for her, but i'm thinking of a leather-clad punk zombie in an open casket, with a ratty mohawk, and various other touches. we'll have to see how that pans out, too. she's only in town until sometime in may, so i'm having fun spending what available time she has together.

so, should i buy a generic-type halloween mask and cut the face out to make a sweet, cheap undermask for my jason hock, or should i keep the money and use it to buy food for a second date with cute little artist chick?

yeah, sorry mr. voorhees. you'll have to wait. sucka'.

also, this would make a really sweet jason undermask, but i wouldn't have the heart to cut it up, especially because of the price and the craftmanship.

strapping young lad - oh my fucking god [Mar. 17th, 2009|06:52 pm]
ToyMan
[Current Music |syl-omfg]

there is no insanity, rather a super sanity
more suited for life at the end of the 20th century
where everything is art,
and everything is trying to express it,
where everything is art,
and everything is trying to communicate it...

all intelligent beings sleep the dreaming of dreams
and they've all come up to meet me tonight
although while in the morning, all their wonder and their
glory was turned ugly and quite simple
like a venue when you're loading in gear

sexuality, eroticism in asexual persuasions
man or woman, makes no difference in the outcome
no fashion, no tolerance for stupidity or ignorance
..."adidas" or "the arch deluxe"...
and time is now an object

oh my fucking god...
oh my fucking god...
and i'll dream all this into becoming real

and until such time that you can prove me otherwise
i will continue with my agnostic travels
until i've found a place that dreams with me...
...a place that feeds on my routine

all i want is my mommy...
all i want is my mommy...
all i want is my mommy...
all i want is my mommy...

this is the night that it all changes

okay, i'm making too many posts featuring jason voorhees masks. i think this is just about out of my system, though. i'm really happy with the quality of this mask. i messaged the dude to see if he sells directly to people, because i'd really like the "jason x" mask, too. it's more sculptural, and has sort of a stylized, comic book look to it.

just got done watching dario argento's inferno. honestly, i think it's the worst argento film i've seen yet. it seems really odd, sitting between suspiria and tenebre in his filmography. both of those films are full of character, and this one was just flat all over.

furthermore, this got me looking at argento's body of work, and it made me realize that out of 22 films, i've only seen 6, and i only really recommend tenebre, suspiria, profondo rosso, and l'ucello dalle piume di cristallo. i can't really speak about them, but i've heard nothing but bad things about his last eight films, most disappointing of those apparently being mother of tears, the conclusion to the 25 year spanning three mothers trilogy, of which inferno was the second installment, after suspiria.

had an odd dream last night wherein a young man and young woman were in my store, and quite clearly drunk off their asses. a co-worker and i walked them out to the curb and asked them to stay out of our store until such a time as they could comport reasonably. unlike it would be if this were to happen in the real world, the two actually thanked us.

the following night, just a few hours ago in fact, my co-workers and i had to deal with some tomfoolery. the barista came back to his register and noticed that a $5 was missing from his tip jar. he knew it had just been there moments ago, so the manager hustled back to the security camera and ran the footage back. we got a clear look at the young man who'd done it, and i located him in the rest room. the law is very odd and skewed about what we can and cannot do in these sorts of situations, so all we could do is just sort of smother him, by having as many associates as possible stand around him, being as obvious as possible without verbalizing our concern, or physically restraining him and the young lady that was with him.

the two of them actually managed a good poker face. the way all of it went down, i don't know whether the female party was actually aware of what was going on, but they both exited, and went to the pharmacy next door to our store. it wasn't more than 5 minutes later that a cop, on foot, apprehended the culprit, and detained him while one of our associates, the manager i think, made a positite identification on him. given that the amount of money that was taken was relatively small, and that the actions required by us to have him arrested would have been absurd, we just had him treated as a trespasser.

-

riding home from work, i decided to stop at 7 eleven and take advantage of the sale they have on one of my favorite coffee beverages. the store is right across the street from 3 apartment complexes, and it seems like every month, around the 1st, i witness some sort of eviction-related drama going down. this night, i'm not sure if that was the case, but there was certainly some drama going on. dude was just standing there getting slapped in the face, and jabbed in the ribs by this little hornet of a chick, while she just swarmed around him, screaming. even after i came out of the store, she was all curled up on the sidewalk while her friend tried to comfort her. a few blocks down the street i noticed the dude was having some sort of run-in with a scraggly, bearded guy, which resulted in him throwing a bicycle.

-

it's incidences like this that make me think a lot. does this sort of thing happen all the time? it wasn't a full moon tonight, i don't think. the temperature might have been between 81-85 degrees, so perhaps that's a valid axiom. also, maybe this is a sign that the psyche of the working class, or near-poverty population is really starting to crack, given the state of our economy and other related factors.

oh, so remember how i said that the attendant at the police station said she'd forward my info along and that i'd get a call from the officer's supervisor? yeah, no call. what i did get, however, was a police vehicle parked outside my house when i got home. what's odd is, i never gave the officers my home address, so it's entirely likely that this isn't related to last night's events, but it would certainly be a little coincidental, wouldn't you say? i'm half-tempted to go back outside and see if i can tell whether the officer from last night is in the vehicle, or see if i can get an i.d. on the license plate, for whatever reason. chances are, if they're here to keep an eye on me (am i starting to sound paranoid yet?) that would probably make things worse.

*EDIT*

alright- went out of the house to get drinks around 2:30, and the vehicle was gone. stopped and talked to the guys at the gas station, figuring that they probably have lots of contact with law enforcement, and wondered if they've met the officer i ran into in particular. they said they hadn't, but mentioned that in their experience, the county cops are really cool, and the city cops are incredible assholes.

i'm still scratching my head, wondering if maybe the cruiser being parked near my place was just a coincidence. i don't know how they would have obtained my current address, seeing as the i.d. i provided to them was old. here's to hoping that if they were trying to intimidate me, that they didn't make any notes on the friends who dropped me off in front of my place or whatever.
