the september 27th update turned out to be a pipe bomb in a guys car parked under rout 90 at the martin luther king blvd exit. so the bomb squad had to defuse it before they let traffic roll on top of there.

the godzilla show at the DHG is fast approaching, here’s a godzilla video of his roars from 1954 to 2014.

my health…well, over all i’m fine, exterior and interior…just my memory has become big enough issue that doctors are involved. …you know how you’ll forget a name or face once in a while, well for me it’s practically every day. i worked with these two guys for a few hours and now there is no way i could pick them out of a line up. things like that all the time….i got the cat scan and that showed everything is fine. now i get the spinal tap in about a week…..remember in the exorcist the girl got a spinal tap? well the promised me it’s nothing like that anymore.

me and rommel got stuck in a hell of a traffic jam yesterday. apparently about two miles ahead of us was a bomb threat so no one was moving an inch for two hours. we were at the eddy road exit on rout 90, the bomb was at the martin luther king blvd exit, one up. everyone got out of there cars and started to talk with each other, walked there dogs around the six lanes of dead in the water cars and trucks. little kids peeing on the lane divider. it became a big parking lot block party. pictured below is rommel enjoying the mass of cars.

DHG

Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Oh no, they say he’s got to go go go Godzilla
Oh no, there goes Tokyo go go Godzilla

History shows again and again
How nature points up the folly of men

a car without a transmission is like a car you can’t drive…just like one, i’ve noticed since i’m on day two, going on day three with no transmission. my car is a 2004 with over 160,000, (probably a lot more i can’t see the odometer because it’s at the shop), so these things are to be expected. like the blower for my AC and heat went kaput. my guy had a chance to fix that at least while waiting for the parts to show up. who knew it would take three days to get parts for a transmission. i miss my 1975 LTD, i drove that baby into the ground in the 1990’s. the real problem with that was it was getting harder and harder to get parts for it…at least i know mine are three days away…..actually one now, fingers crossed

you ever notice when you’re in speedway gas station standing in line to get your tornadons…(my personal favorite is the ranchero beef steak and cheese one),and your arms are full of other things like pop, candy and other things you don’t actually needs…ever notice there’s someone playing a ton of numbers on the lottery in front of you and then want cigarettes the clerk can’t find and they get mad at the clerk? i see it a lot, maybe because i go to speedway too much, but i’d like to know how many of those high rollers hit and how their lung cancer is coming along.
