The previous entry was our 500th. Not that you care.

Tonight was Jicks night. Sherowski, Sierra and I cruised downtown to catch those Jicks stumble, flop and squirm through some songs. Unfortunately, the opening bands got a little frisky in the spotlight and played forever. Fuck. We made it through four or five musical portraits, and we called it a night. The beer gets warm in their fast, or maybe I just have hot hands.

Today was Jury Duty day, and hey, I’m not supposed to discuss that with you. Like you care.

Happiness is a cool Portland summer night.

Still busy. Chipping away nightly at all the projects. Like any of you give a fuck.

HOMEOWNIN’: Listen up you escrow mothefuckers, the appraisal has been ordered! Finger are crossed for good numbers. Enough of this limbo shit, this slackjaw is ready to move in and make that house a home, or, DDC factory floor. Big plans in the works.

01. First, we move in.
02. Second, we unpack.
03. Third, we decorate all with doilies, Precious Moments™ figurines and shit.
04. Fourth, we plug the amps in and introduce ourselves to the neighbors.
05. Fifth, we stay up late.
06. Sixth, we sleep in real late.
07. Seventh, we hike out onto Sandy for some sort of breakfast snack.
08. Eighth, we hike back.
09. Ninth, we get sad in a big, lonely house.
10. Tenth, we start preparing for the next big move.

Listen to some old Pavement this week. Really.

There Are 8 Comments

I sometimes feel that I am the kiss of death here whenever I post anything, but I agree……

“….like you care…..”

Where the hell is everybody? How can they not comment on that picture of you and your dad? Or that list of musical choices? Whatever happened to putting shit on Ryno? Even your housing situation and multitudes of work projects deserve some kind of response!

Yours truly,


Some of us really care, but don’t want to put any hex on your site; then your friends/fans/foes won’t be honestly posting……

So, come on, you motherfuckers, come back to draplin; torture him with your comments, make him mad; do whatever you have to do to inspire him to keep this particular freedom of speech up and running….

Hang in there!

Congrats on the house boss! Real good to know the DDC is getting some roots. Big moves for a big man.

I give a fuck. Not a big one, but a fuck none the less. J/K. Now get this jury shit behind you, and get your lazy ass back in the office to help us pass the time. Like you care.

Flip the coins and watch me light up”

Fuckin’ Pavement.

Congratulations on homeownership. Did you buy a lawnmower yet? Maybe go electric.

I just had the elder Oswald son at our house for a week. We did a wedding last weekend and a little playtime this week including some F911, lots of dining veg-style, and a little carousing. He’s headed to TC today to help Joan celebrate her 60th on Monday.

Rock on. If I make it up for PolkaFest, I’ll give you the lowdown.
