los angeles countdown

Got the van reinsured...on the payment plan so when it explodes I don't lose all my money. Maybe the state will lift the suspension on the thing next week. I'm not sure it will be a bad thing if it vanishes one night. As long as I can have my guitars.
But it turns out the east coast has some nice CB 750s too. Has anyone looked at the road to Newfoundland? It's more remote than the road to Cabo San Lucas. I mean, it is a long way from a spring break destination. No joke. That's a road made for a cb750. no trucks. no towns. no people. But the winter starts in about three weeks so there is no time to sign autographs for my admiring fans.

I'm off to sleep now so I can get up and do some work in the morning. trying to round up two people to go east is harder than just doing the work myself and paying all the gas. There are people going east but they all want to "be safe" and "get there on time" and "Not be killed." insane things like that. I say, my friend, Los Angeles is an unsafe place. America is falling apart. If you want to be safe then hide in your room. I have about a 50/50 chance of making it to Indiana. The van absolutely screams Hippie. And texans don't dig on that at all. Sasha Baron Cohen thinks he has the market cornered on spoofs but I am the real deal. A true dissident in his own country...and the only people who don't care are either tweaked on crystal meth or stoned and living on the beach. Even homeless vets hate me. No one likes a free individual...especially on the street sleeping next to their house.
I'm an American and a survivor and I'm not going nowhere.

Cabot Trail, Marco!

Trying to plan a trip with my Dad. He's always wanted to make the run.

The Cabot trail is in Nova Scotia, I believe. Newfoundland has like 600,000 people in an area as large as NEw England.
hopefully there will be arcitc wolves as part of this expedition is to raise fund for the protection and raise awareness of their plight. I believe iphones and arctic wolves are mutually exclusive. one must hit the road. and my job is to make sure the iphone is decomissioned by 2010. Yes, that's a tall order. But pictures of the arctic wolf in its natural habitat will help.
Laundry, you are invited along with your dad. I'll drop you off at the cabot trail.

scary, but i think if put to a vote, most would doom the wolf.

i'm on the fence. this thing is rad.

Thank you for staying on topic. I choose to target the iphone because every cause must have a poster child. In my case I want to raise awareness about the holiness of the arctic wolf and expose the iphone as a weapon of mass destruction. That's my challenge. We are all making these choices between what is holy and priceless and what a fucking cunt asshole in China dreamed up because he thought people would buy it and thus help him pay for his hookers.
that is the choice we make and I'm telling you these choices are not easy. In fact, since a meteor will eventually wipe out all life on earth this is pretty much a philosophical discussion. Ought our lives be in support of our planet (though it is doomed) or ought our lives be in support of fast downloads of frivolous all costs? It seems to be one or the other. This is the discussion I want to have with the American gas stations and brothels across the land. Lets get serious.

p.s. I need to mention that Hannah Montana is also a weapon of mass destruction.
