Johnny LaRue's Crane Shot
Monday, April 24, 2006
Just Stuff
I woke up at 4:12 this morning to the sound of the asshole across the street blowing his car horn. There is some dipshit family who lives over there, and they are always doing dipshit things. Their kids play in the street, and I am hoping one or more will get run over.

I'm sound asleep when I hear a very loud car horn. And another burst. And another. It blows about nine times. I crawl out of bed and out to the window where I see the neighbors carrying something out of the house and putting it in the trunk. They drove away, but the car was back when I got up three hours later. Who knows what those idiots were doing.

Today I went home for lunch. I no sooner got in the house than I heard a car alarm going off. I was pissed off, thinking it was probably those dumbass neighbors again. It kept going and going, so I started looking out the window. Hmmm, didn't sound like it was coming from the street. More like my parking lot. So I went to the back door, thinking my neighbors in my house had better get off their asses and turn that alarm off. Oops. It wasn't them. It was me. I don't have an alarm, but I have some kind of panic button on my key fob that I can press if I'm attacked by rapists or muggers by my car. I guess I must have pushed it accidentally after I put my keys in my pocket.

I got an email last week from someone who asked me to judge a local film contest. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for a few details, namely "when," "where," and "how." Just some minor details. It sounds as though it's painfully disorganized. The deadline to submit films has been extended, and now someone with an existing film wants to enter it, even though that would violate the very point of the contest, which involves entrants making their short within the same (more or less) 25-hour period. At least I should get some amusing stories out of it.

While you're at it Tolemite, I'll also show up with The Courtesy Golf Club (patent pending). I'm thinking of a certain scene in THE BIG LEBOWSKI...

First of all, hello crazy gangsters or mafia men or something. Hiding things in car trunks. That's crazy. Secondly, you left me hanging. Did you turn off the panic button? Were you raped or mugged as you were turning it off- like a diversionary tactic. They lured you out with the noise knowing it would tick you off and then BAM. You are lying on the floor. Nice transition to film contest judging. Anyway, hope you tell me the stories from the contest. Be careful out there.

Dipshit is a great word, and doesn't quite get the usage that it is due.

I was not raped or mugged, even though there are some cute girls living in this house who I wish would. Nope, I pulled the keys out of my pocket and turned off the alarm, feeling like a complete putz.

Still don't know what's happening with the judging. I think I know who the other two judges are, at least.
