Mark It Zero

I feel pretty tired this morning for some reason, I did my weight lifting first thing, and I'm drinking my coffee, but I still feel unenergized, and exhausted. I don't know... it's strange.

One of my all-time favorite movies in the world is "The Big Lebowski". It is hilarious and I just can't say enough about it... There is an infamous scene within the movie, however, where John Goodman's character (a Vietnam Vet) goes off his rocker in the bowling alley, and forces one of the other players to mark his score a zero, pulls out a gun and tells him "You're entering a world of pain." I'll share that video with you, but I also found this t-shirt that I would love to have!! It's great. (You can click the photo and it will take you to the site), and they have a lot more interesting t-shirts on there!!!

Sometimes I wish I could give people the "Mark It Zero" treatment! Anyways, here's the video and if you haven't seen the movie, you must do it asap!

On to a few photos...

One day I snapped another "self-portrait" with my cellphone, and got this very strange "ghostly" looking image... Creeeepy huh??

Oh yes, as I said, we did some recording over the weekend (Sat), and I promised photos of my "recording booth", so here they are (the latest in recording technology lol):

Bet Jimi Hendrix never had to record in the bathroom... But, I guess I'm sort of following along in the footsteps of "The Fonz" having a bathroom for an office!!!

Also, I can't leave out a very special "Foot" photo that I have to dedicate to Barnze, Four Dinners, and Cappy, my "Punks"... (well actually, Cappy is more of a Mod, but he still Rocks!) Barnze is the biggest reason for the "Foot shots" because he does em, and got me hooked.

They don't appear to mean much maybe to the ordinary viewer, but you have to appreciate the art of the "Foot Forward". Cheers Barnze!!! And All of you guys have a great week!

hahaha ... that would have been really hilarious if that mic was lower and right in front of the toilet. That would be some serious multitasking there. ;-)

Can you believe I've never seen "The Big Lebowski?" Seriously! I don't really know why not either.

Aunt Jackie said...

HAHAHA Why didn't I do that Jay?? Why?!?! Maybe because then my singing would have to be 'worth a shit' lol!! Wow... Geez.

I swear YOU HAVE to see THE BIG Lebowski... do it now!

"I did my weight lifting first thing, " Um, you have a heavy coffee cup? :-)

I find lifting weights boring and prefer to work and get things done as my way of exercise. Like splitting Helen's firewood and working on things.

BTW, my coffee cups says "I'm surrounded by fuckin' idiots"

I've never seen The Big Lebowski. If I remember to I will rent it based on your recommendation. I don't watch a lot of TV, I've only watched about 15 minutes of the sex DVD I bought a month ago.

But then I had to go whack off. LOL

Cool recording studio.

Nothingman said...

"No THE Dude ... All I want is my carpet replaced"

Funny movie. Funny pictures. Excellent post.

I guess your bathroom has good acoustics.. mine does not. Still, if you ever needed a duck sound, just eat some chili and squeeze those cheeks tight! At least you're in the right place just in case of a shart.

That's actually a big toilet.

I think it's possibly actually bigger than the stage at the old Tam O'Shanter pub on Chatham Hill that was a great live music venue when I was a teenager. If so I can get a double bass drum kit, a Marshall Stack some form of bass amp two large PA stacks and a singer in there.... :-) Or at least I used to be able to. However that might also explain why I'm slightly deaf now as well.

Nothingman said...

Aunt Jackie said...

Nothingman! Sorry about the comment, I don't know why it threw you under moderation?? I didn't even know it was there. My blog isn't set that way, but occasionally I'll see a comment that needs moderation.

Nothingman NEVER needs moderation. :)

Thanks N!!

Yeah Rockin. :)
