some people fantasize about big houses or cars or pretty girls

i dream about food vans. and how many i could make and how many could i make as soon as possible.

and how many i could put on little boats and send to the world, because the world would enjoy good texas chili.

the world deserves delicious soul food.

and the world would totally pay up for a slice of real chicago deep dish.

problem is the world doesnt just let you get a van and start shoving slop out there, but here in LA you can.

you can start up a medical marijuana store and you can sell food out of vans here. its amazing.

its what we traded for instead of having the raiders.

somehow we got pinkberries too.

id have all sorts of vans, but the one id drive would be the mystery van.

it would be a black primer, ugly, beaten up, rusty job with a huge question mark on the side.

“whaddya want?” a man looking faintly like me would say from beneath a top hat.

some days the whiteboard ducttaped to the smokey window would say “chicken, pepperoni and avacado” or “chocolate, vanilla, and doritos” or three other ingrediants, and youd pay the man $9 and you’d get like a chicken dinner, or a 16″ pepperoni hero sub, or a hot fudge sundae molded to look like one of the us presidents.

$9 because everyone should tip at least a buck.

students, seniors, nurses and cubfans get a $5 discount.

all sales final.

the tshirts will say: eat at yr own risk.

the food would come in black boxes with crazy faces on them. you get a bottle of water for free.


friend of the busblog Killola has a new video out

and its pretty good

back in the day Killola was in on the Tsar + Silver Lake + Safari Sam’s scene and im glad that they are slowly making their way up to the top.

this tune “Cracks in the Armor” is their “oFISHial Music Video” from their forthcoming cd.

what i like about it is it shows that you can have excellent production and even tell a little (fish) story in a video and you dont have to spend a gazillion dollars.

there are lots of things that make me sad about the music industry but one of the things that makes me the saddest is the demise of the music video industry. for some reason labels seem to think that they dont need videos to help advertise the new tunes, when everyone knows that videos is the Best way to do it.

i dont think youre ready for this belly

tony pierce belly cubs hatgonna try to blog without saying omg everythign was so awesome omg my life is so great.

going on the ninth year of writing the busblog and the question today is what new ways can i talk about my days, which are all awesome, duh. even the sad parts are interesting.

funny thing happened the other day. truest was over so i wanted to impress her with my PS3-playing skillz.

i was all, “ok i can only play this game for 10 minutes because i get super nauseous”. it was an off road racing game, and i was kicking major bootay and i swear to you i was sick in the head and the stomach for a good two hours.

maybe a bad two hours is how i should say it.

yesterday karisa took me on a bday hike. we hadnt hiked for half a year. im not the best person for an experienced hiker to hike with because a) i dont like to share my 40’s, b) i like to flash my big belly at the paps (pictured, right) c) im in no damn rush and like to enjoy the views d) i have LOTS of toxins, and when they get sweated out, even the flies are all what the heck!

anyways we went up temscula canyon which is in between brentwood (where OJ used to live) and pacific palisades (where he used to golf). it was a beautiful day. 80 degrees maybe? not a cloud in the sky. and apparently because ive been running twice a week i didnt suck so bad on this hike. in fact it was a pleasure from top to bottom.

afterward we ate monkfish at the Reel Inn. karisa says that monkfish is “the poor mans lobstah” and i gotta say it does have that sort of texture. quite good.

then i went home, read the bible, got in a very short cleaning groove, and read more of the bible.

somewhere in there i started watching this black real world thing called “College Hill” on BET. very funny. no Tool Academy, but really good. people are crazy, yo.

speaking of crazy, this week is gonna be nuts.

this week i have tickets to Regina Spektor, a discussion with R. Crumb, and a Halloween costume party with Danielle K. with musical guests Sea Wolf. then somewhere in there will be a birthday party for a good man.

and somewhere in there will be me considering putting my PS3 and half dozen games up for auction because theres enough things in real life that make my stomach turn for the worse, i really dont need that in my friendly confines.

bababooey to you all
