"A Scary Smurf Strangling a Baby."

Yesterday was a lot of fun. My roommate Curtis and his friend John and I went out to eat at Mo's in Taluca Lake. Our waitress was a funny girl, who during the course of our evening made the loudest and most authentic velociraptor noise I have heard from a person.

After that we went to a theater in North Hollywood to see the premiere of some film called Harlequin which was about 45 minutes long, along with two other short films. These were done much like Twelve Page Paper, and the premiere seemed to be all people who knew each other, except us. We went because John had done some work on the credits so he got tickets. The movie was actually pretty good, a little creepy. At one point in the night, Curtis asked, "Hey, I don't know if you guys caught this, but does it seem like there are a lot of asians here?" Sarcasm, as a good 95% of the people at the screening and everyone in the film was asian.

On the way home we decided to stop at a bar. The three of us happened to sit next to three single cute girls at the bar. We hung out and talked to them all night, which was going well until a few other guys decided to butt in on us and try to take over, and then Curtis knocked over the bartenders rubber mat and simultaneuosly spilled about eight drinks. We had a lot of fun though.

On the way home we stopped at a Jack In The Box. Mistake. Then we watched Futurama and Sealab 2021.

It was all a lot of fun.

And I've noticed something. People look at each other here. They smile. Not like in Michigan where we go out of our way to avoid eye contact. It's pretty nice.

Peace hombres.
Oh, the rather macabre title is something Curtis said about his parents trying to scare him into going to church. They used to tell him demons could possess his toys and stuffed animals unless he prayed.


  • Hola Cali man. :) It sounds like you're having a blast. Rock. I loved the videos! My roommates thought I was insane because I was laughing so hard, but that would've happened anyway, so it's best to get it out of the way up front, don't you think?

    Also, I saw this little gem on View Askew and I thought of you right away. ;) Go get 'em, tiger.
