Long Overdue


“If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph: The only proof he needed for the existence of God was music." —Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a County

This post is long overdue, especially for blog whose title and essence is inspired by the man, and my favorite work oh his: Cat's Cradle. I was first introduced to Vonnegut by my West Coast Portland, Oregon cousin, Tova. She handed me what seemed to be a pamphlet of a book. For what the book lacks in length it is endless in depth, intelligence and sarcasm. I have bought countless copies of Cat's Cradle each time reading the book again, finding more than I did the last time, only to give it away to someone I feel needs it, never to see that particular copy again. I have devoured many of his work but still come back to Bokonon and his musical ridonkulousness. Vonnegut has always been an inspiration in my writing and how I view the world. I don't think I could say much more without losing some sort of poignancy. I think Kurt knows how he has touched people with his work, I am just one of many.

When Leo chooses to do good movies and show off his acting chops he's hard to beat. When I first saw him in What's Eating Gilbert Grape I actually thought he was mentally handicapped. I didn't know then he was the kid from Growing Pains. I cite Romeo and Juliet, first off Baz Luhrman's vision of The Bard's tale is bad-ass, but I give Leo props for a great delivery of verbatim Shakespeare. Of course The Departed was phenomenal, but Leo with a wicked good South African accent is worth many kudos. Djimon Honsu's performance is way up there too, another one of my favorite actors.

Opening Day was a blast! Some exciting stuff happened at the game (def not the Nats performance) TD got engaged, Theodore Roosevelt zip lined in from RFK's roof, and it was just plain awesome to be at Opening Day instead of work.

I've been trying to take my camera with me where ever I go, trying to spur/re-new a hobby. In other news there has been no sign of Baby Lucas yet, TD and AZ got engaged, Mazel Tov! JD turned 30 today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JD! The big 3-0. Yikes!

What does it say about me that I have to try harder not to have a crush then I tend to develop them? Hmmmmm...

Here is a taste of the new hobby plus a kick-ass movie I made of the F-18 flyover @ RFK for Nats Opening Day!

Ohhhhh Say Can You See?
