Penn Jillette... Dude's like 6'8" and 280 at the least. He almost ran me over coming out of a record shop on Melrose... His girlfriend was this tiny Asian Gothic Chick who could fit in his pocket.

I saw Sylvester Stallone on Rodeo Drive one time, he was tiny. I was a kid at the time and towered over him.

I'm 6'7" so just about every "star" I've seen in my life is shorter..... with the exception of the time I very briefly met Kareem at a national AAU function in DC. Also, James Donaldson was there.

I've also seen Stallone in person.... it's a wonder what they can do with camera angles. He's big compared to Seth Green who I saw while staying at the Hard Rock casino a few years ago. He was shooting a scene for a movie at the time. That dude is really small.

It's a Megan Thee Stallion reference. I'd say more but I'm already ashamed that I know the source.

Dude I met Sly the night I met Kareem and Magic at the forum and became a hardcore Laker fan. I remember how it changed my view of movies and heroes especially right after getting quick high fives from two of the biggest people I had ever met.

people always reserve the seats i want ahead of time (i never do, get them when i get there), but i'm always there early so i beat them there most of the time

so i could get the seats i like more often if it wasn't assigned seats, now there isn't any reason for me to be early anymore other than that is what i prefer. plus seems like more people come in late now, knowing they have a seat they want

Been working my way through Ulysses by Joyce. Lot to unpack there.
Also working on The Glass Bead Game by Hesse

Listening to Native Son, by Wright and Seize the Day by Saul Bellow on tape.

I jump around a lot.

I actually love Kerouac. His narration doesn't feel forced.
