That Dead Guy Just Looked at Me

0
Thought I would take the time to reveal and review. So lets start with the most recent and work backwards.

Sunday – Me and the SoThisIsRock.com guys have been working on Podcast after Podcast and have so many in the works that it’s pretty cool. They are 15-20 min shows and we focus mainly on the bands and it’s really awesome stuff. We are testing a new system so if you could call into (206) 973-7886 and say “You Are Listening to So This Is Rock (dot) com” We will love you for it and send you virtual cookies. We have plenty of males that have called in but need to mix it up. So Ladies Don’t be shy. Hit up the Voicemail!

Saturday– Ummm Well took a lazy day. Got my haircut (wait that was Sunday) So I got a haircut because well I went from Tristan to Hippie and was told I was looking like a Lion in the back. I gave up on shaving for a while and was looking rather pathetic. It was kinda nice. I wasn’t getting carded for anything and people would avoid sitting next to me on the Bus. Shaved and got a haircut I am people friendly again. Curses. =p.

I Picked up the DVD Thank You For Smoking. This was probably one of the golden gems that flew under most people’s radar. I love this film. It’s funny and speaks a great message. I enjoyed laughing and getting a tour through the underworld. The characters are great. I love the Merchants of Death. Maria Bello what a beautiful woman. She was also in World Trade Center didn’t look as attractive in that film. But I don’t know I guess there is something to the older woman. I would recommend.

After having some pizza with the KGB went to Nick’s Band Practice where they were recording a video. It was an experience hearing them redo the covers they do over and over but doing it in front of a camera and doing it 2-3 times. So I wouldn’t get to hear their cover just once. But up to 3 times. After that we went to go sing some tunes at the Sian Palace. Good Times.

Friday-

Friday was the 13th and I think the world took some crazy pills and I was rather stressed all day long and I came home and went to bed. Or Did I? hmmmmm. Should I reveal the dealings of the afternoon. Nah Move Along. So rewind.

Previous Sunday – This was really interesting went to go check out the Bodies Exhibit. I went with a fairly large group and there was a huge line to get into this event. They were charging $24.99 a head.
So lets take a look at the guest list.

Nick– Nick is one of my good friends. He is a great guy. Plays Guitar in a band and dwells in the Real Estate Realm.
Audrey– Audrey is beautiful and amazing. She is dating the Nick. She works in a flower shop making the world feel better and smell beautiful.
Garrett– Garrett is a drummer from the source of drumming. Great guy. Band Practice is always at his parents house who are kind enough to deal with the noise. Although they play in a barn away from the house they rock. He works in a Music shop and teaches drums for a living.
Gerene– Is the beautiful woman that is always with the other G Man. She is beautiful and works for a company that does something with money.
Justin– Is Nick’s Brother. He does construction and he is funny and always a delight to be around. Though he did try to steal a girl I was interested in. But that is old news.
Abby– Abby is Garrett’s Brother and Justins Girlfriend. She cleans houses for a living and is going to school. She is cool in my book.
So anyways we arrive in Seattle and check out Pike Place Market. I spend 5 days a week in Seattle at work already and take the ferry everyday so it was odd coming over here on my day off. I want to move over to this side of the water but still not live in Seattle. So on this adventure I was feeling a bit like a 7th wheel so I called the only female I thought would be into this kinda thing. The wonder well I believe she goes by the alias of “R” on here. Went to voice mail. I got an e-mail a few days later.
I tend to view e-mail on this sorta thing that goes along the lines. “I don’t really want to hear your end of the conversation. I just want you to read what I have to say” I know I will get some feedback saying how this is not true and I am interested to read it. =) I guess I am just a vocal phone guy. E-mail is something I do all day long anyways rather just speak to a human being. But I like that kind of connection since it’s a lot easier then drafting an e-mail till the end of time.
So onto the bodies. There has been a great deal of banter about how they use only Asians. I am not going to make that an issue. They are dead, They are hear for science, It was very interesting to see and enjoy this museum. Seeing all the parts of the body and learning how they work and what they do. Like I think my favorite part of the whole thing was seeing the veins of the body. This was a mind fuck of how did they get those out of the body. But the reading on the wall shows that they used. Some sort of hardening substance and filled the veins with. Then they used Acid to melt away the rest of the body for an amazing result. I was totally overwhelmed by the entire experience and walked out feeling like that we are all human beings. We are all the same in some way. Personality and character makes us different.
The only part that seemed to bother people was the fetus exhibit. It was interesting to see human growth. Now being a person who is pro choice. Abortion is a subject that I feel well it’s a good thing. If someone wants to do that awesome. If they don’t for religious reasons well don’t get me started on religion. Being your resident atheist I personally think it’s all bullshit. But if that’s your thing not me to tell you otherwise. Just don’t force your thoughts on me and I will respect you and do the same.
So afterwards we had to run for the ferry and we missed it by maybe 3 minutes so we went to Ivars and had some Clam Chowder which is like the best in the world from Ivars. So go check out the Bodies Exhibit. When it gets to your town.

Saturday –

Saturday well nothing really happened. Well nothing that I can recall sitting here at 5pm Monday at the Ferry Terminal. Err Wait! So I went to go see The Departed. Starring Mr Jack and Leonardo DiCaprio. Overall the movie was amazing. It was a remake of the 2002 film Hong Kong Crime drama infernal affairs. I think overall it was a great remake of the original film. But brilliant movie I totally recommend. So far it has my vote for best movie of 2006. May not win any awards but go check it out. Pay the full price. So if you only see one film this year. Go see The Departed. Other then That I would suggest that is all for this post.
Cheers,
Tristan

    OK, you totally had like 704 sentence fragments in that post. Just thought I’d mention it. 🙂

    As for the bodies exhibit, that sounds really interesting. They have a fetus exhibit at OMSI that was fascinating. They had the developmental cycle from month 1 to month 9. I would imagine that the month 9 baby was a stillborn or something. It was hard to imagine the mother that gave her full-term child up like that for display (I’m not saying shame on her–I think it’s heroic).

    And I plan on seeing the Departed soon. I think Leo DiCaprio is a great actor and doesn’t get the credit he deserves most of the time.
