my band, animalshow, played a benefit for Transitional Living Process, at the playboy mansion, on june 6. john carey, chris "bubba" harrington, and nicholas "marty" schmidt, and i played our first gig as Animalshow. we were miked throughout the whole building, after management "released" the other two bands to "enjoy the evening".hef was not there, but i like women, so that was not a real problem.
my ex-girlfriend's mom came up to my wife, looked at her, and exclaimed,"my god, you're beautiful!" I never wanted so much to thank her for her heart. her daughter, however, chose to boycott the nuptuals, for her own reasons.
this girl named laurelcame up, and introduced herself to me. "so," she said, with this incredible boldness, "i hear you're a teenage mutant ninja turtle!" I said, " you're f**king with me, right? get the f**k away from me." I felt bad about my sullen mood, and apologized, by buying her a drink. i have paid for that drink, in oh so many ways, over, and over. i would do it again, in a heartbeat!

my daughter, diana was born on march 9. i have never seen a baby do push ups, and seemingly focus on people that early, in life. she did both within minutes of birth. i am so going to enjoy being her father. she scares me daily!
i met my father, when i was 25 years old. after years of life in foster care, and various state homes, i finally knew my father was the "good guy." i knew my life meant something to someone, and , so it should, for me, as well. my dad told me, that day, "you're never too old to have a happy childhood." i have never wasted a day, since, without trying to do just that.
