7977 – a meme before breakfast.

1. What’s your name?
Most folks call me Scotto or Scott or Big Guy or Dude! or Hun.

2. Favorite fright:
Probably the most effective were the jump-scenes in Poltergeist or Alien when I was a kid. I rather like Hitchcock’s stuff now.

3. Got any weird phobias/hangups?
I’d think that we all do! I get a little vertigo when I look straight *up* at something rather than down at a depth. I also stay close to the wall rather than a banister near a ledge or deep fall. My greatest personal fear is suffering at the hands of an incompetent.. whether it’s a doctor after an accident, or a fry cook dropping hairs into my onion rings. I don’t like the idea of someone “helping” me while being unqualified for the task. People mishandling guns near me. People who cheat on their partners physically disgust me.

4. Who’s the best James Bond? Come on, now. It’s obviously…
Sean Connery – though Roger Moore was the best Saint.

5. Pick a happy childhood memory.
Here’s one! – dad packs lunch & tonka trucks

6. Who was your first ever crush?
My babysitter’s friend Patty, I think. Or Diana Horton, my first “girlfriend” in first grade. Not sure which I had a big hug-fondness for. I wonder where either of them are now?

7. Favorite bands/singers:
Talking Heads, They Might be Giants, Soul Coughing, Cake, Concrete Blonde, Beach Boys, Grateful Dead, many, many more.

8. If you could have one material thing besides money… and just for kicks (in other words, nothing you desperately need), what would it be?
A personal masseuse/maid would be nice. Someone to work my shoulders, back and feet and then clean up the apartment.

9. Current celebrity crush(es)?
Hm… lots of attractive people out there, but no celeb girls that I’m currently “crushing” on.

10. Wisest thing anyone’s ever said to you:
“Pick your battles” (not that I always follow that advice.)

7976 –

GeotargetChris Yerina, from Gloversville, NY, who some may know from Respectables, O’Sheas, Culture Room, Fetish Factory parties, Club Exit, etc, or maybe as the guitarist for the bands Monkeypaw, No End, 30 Odd Sicks and Kimsagro, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday night.

They are holding a benefit in his honor tomorrow night at Respectables.

They are trying to gather up a few bands to play between 9pm and Midnight.

If you know of a band that’d like to join in honoring Chris, please have them call 754/235-5206.

There is no cover at the door, but donations will be greatly appreciated. All donations will go directly to his family to help cover the unexpected costs of his funeral services.

Starmark had their Holiday party last night. I wonder who the entertainment was? Three years ago it was Jimmy Buffett.

Happy Birthday, Becky, wherever you are!

I’ve lost a lot of interest in Lost at the moment. Maybe when season 2 comes out on dvd, I’ll peek at it again, but it just hasn’t held my interest the last three episodes or so. I suspect it’s suffering from “Twin Peaks” syndrome. What I once considered a 9 of 10, I’m now putting at about a 6. I never cared about Shannon’s character, and really don’t much care about the new group, especially the cliche of the “tiny twerp actress (that’s not a great actress) who is supposed to be a tough badass”. Boring. Alias, Buffy, Rain. Enough already. Rodreguez in Aliens… she’s believable. The island scenery is more lovely in HD, though. I hope that it turns around soon.

Revised plans for today, no gaming – Danny prefers not to go, but I’m unsure why. I guess I’ll find out once he gets here, about 11:30am. Maybe a dip in the pool? He’s bringing a swimsuit and towel in case things are good for it. Maybe a trip to Crabby Jack’s for lunch. I’m not sure that I can make it to respectables late night, or Dave’s early night yet.
