I just have been busy. I went back to Crossville, TN for a week and then to Plano, TX. Nothing too exciting. I got to see some friends in Plano and Crossville was just all about surviving another week.

But until then:
House Republicans roll out alternative budget
I love this video. Adam Sandberg has proven to be pretty funny and that's something unusual for the newer age of Saturday Night Live.
I recently rented and watched the movie Synecdoche, New York. It is an incredible movie but very disturbing; classic Charlie Kaufman. After receiving the MacArthur grant a director finds himself trying to create a play about his life and throughout the process of creating this play it becomes his life.
"The use of synecdoche is a common way to emphasize an important aspect of a fictional character; for example, a character might be consistently described by a single body part, such as the eyes, which come to represent the character. This is often used when the main character does not know or care about the names of the characters that he/she is referring to."

This guy is incredible... Ronald Jenkees...make sure you have a hat on or else he may just make you lose yo' mind.
Whats does shamwow, mugshots, bloody tongues and 3 easy payment of $19.95 all have in common?
I don't have cable and instead of watching TV I listen to talk radio and podcasts while I'm at home. Unfortunately, very little of it is educational and a vast majority of it probably doesn't benefit me at all; it may even make me dumber. Regardless its all fun and entertaining
Jim Rome - His Web site has better information but you have to pay a membership fee to stream the show...here its free.
Adam Corolla -I'm new to his show although a buddy has been telling me to get hooked for a long time. One listen was all it took before I was addicted. Corolla and all his immaturity, racism, feminism, homophobia and strangely brilliant ability to listen and council the sick comedians and hollywood b, and sometimes C, listers is uncanny and hilarious.

a favorite poem read by a favorite poet
Go see this guy in concert. It could be his last tour. I bought my tickets for Long Center in Austin on April 2nd. I'm really excited...now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that work doesn't randomly send me somewhere.

The people were really nice and the weather was horrible but the mountains were beautiful and the meth busts were plentiful and everywhere. Fortunately we had to drive to Knoxville twice in two days and I was able to stare out of the window and observe the beautiful mountains. It was fascinating how in the rain the fog rolling across the mountain side resembled smoke billowing from the mountains.
It was a good week and I'm looking forward to next.

While in the museum there was a huge St. Patrick's Day Parade going on outside for a moment I felt like I should go outside and take place but because I was just in New Orleans for Mardi Gras I decided I could do without another parade. After I left the museum though the parade was still going on and so I was able to sit and watch the end of it. It was nice. The weather was still horrible, even colder and wetter than the day before. It was impossible not to smile at the young little river dancers Celtic hopping down the wet street and for some reason there were these Bolivian dancers that were absolutely amazing, and I have no idea how they weren't freezing in there barely there skirts. They looked more like something that would be at the Fiesta Celebration in San Antonio that is taking place in a couple of weeks, which I will also be at. I'm a pretty lucky guy right now. I am able to see and experience a lot of the amazing culture this country has to offer. Unfortunately I am missing SXSW and the Kerrville Folk Music Festival but between Hawaii, DC, Mardi Gras and Fiesta in the last month and the month coming up; I think I can handle it.
