Goonies Never Say Die

USA 2 Comments »

We waited around two hours for the free shuttle service to take us into town. The chalet I’m staying at is right on the slopes, about a 10 minute drive from all the films and parties. It’s freaking cold here so to not be walking outside for any longer than we had to, we ran into the first place to eat we found. They’d run out of half the stuff on the menu. I guess Sundance is getting too big for the twon and they’re considering moving it. When a bar and grill is out of french fries and hamburgers, it must be pretty damn busy.

After we ate, my goood friend Dominic sacficed his spot at the premier of the Beastie Boy’s new film “Awesome, I Fuckin Shot That!”, so I could go. The film was scheduled to start at Midnight. Adam Horovitz (Ad Rock) came down to the front of the theatre to introduce the film. He was pretty chill, a bit nervous actually, which kind of blew my mind considering he’s been performing in front of tens of thousands since the early 1980’s, when I bought my first tape ever, Beastie Boys – Licensed to Ill.

Staying HERE for the next few days…

Breath, Eat and Shit

USA No Comments »

I’ve been in Vegas for half a week and have yet to see a casino. Instead I’ve spent my days in silent thought, shifting focus from my feet to laptop screen. I’ve spent my evenings in conversations of life and love with my friend Harry. We talked about perception as the culprit for misunderstanding, about the power and weakness of language and about the bliss¬ís found in faith and faithlessness.

Tonight I’m headed for Sin City Hostel, to spend one night and day alone on the strip before boarding an overnight Greyhound to Salt Lake City, where I’ll join my very hip friend Dominic for a week of music, film, parties and famous folk at the Sundance Film Festival. I’m looking forward to being star struck by names and faces who breath, eat and shit just like me.

Current Location – Austin, TX

As you can see from Mike’s map, the drive from New Mexico to Austin was super long. It took us at least ten hours with a break in between. We slept for free in the car at a campground about 1/3 the way here. The drive was pretty uneventful. Most of western Texas is a baren wasteland.

Oh yea…we spent a few hours in the UFO Research Center and Museum while we were in Roswell. We are both definitely UFO believers now! The government cover up is some serious business. From Roswell we went to see the VLA Radio Telescopes. There’s like 100 HUGE radio telescopes that look like satelite dishes. I did a project including this place when I was in college, so it was cool to see it.

From there we went to the White Sands Missle Testing Range, which is this massive bassin filled with salt deposits where the air force tests their missles. It looks like mounds of snow. When when they aren’t shooting missles, you can drive out there and walk around. So we went and watched the sunset.

Last night we hung out in Austin. We got some shushi and then went and checked out this club Emo’s. Yea the name is cheasey, but supposedly it’s been called that for over 10 years. Coincidentaly the only local Austin band I know (Crusierweight) was playing. After the set we played some good songs on the juke box and I bought mike enough shots to turn him into PuKey McPukerton later that night. After we left Emo’s we walked into a local hip hop bar and watched some local MC’s flow until last call. Austin has an amazing music scene. They have a whole street (6th Street) filled with clubs and bars and it has a lane just for musicians to unload their gear.

Today we’re heading to San Antonio to hang out with Allison and see here town. Hopefully she’ll take us to get some good Texas barbecue and maybe to check out a dude ranch.

Tah tah for now.
