Believe In Me

Wouldn't it be a great world if you could believe in people. Was there ever a time when you could believe in people emotions as being truthful. And if so, what happen. These days I am so tired and stressed that I have developed amazing powers of paranoia. I can see right through people. Yes. I can see bull shit as if it was a turd flowing right out of one's mouth trying to disguise itself as honesty with pretty colors.

All things start out with the best intentions. "Believe In Me", is the battle cry. Too bad it's the one war that doesn't have a positive out come.

Damn, I've gone abstract!

Oxford Comma

I don't know, maybe it is stress that's working it's way through my mind at the moment or it could be I am just getting sick of hearing people say I am not sure if am going.

What am I talking about. Los Angeles of course. I thought by now people would have dropped the silly answer when asked whether or not they are going to L.A. Only a limited number of people were lucky enough to be ask to go, and that alone should be a good reason to say with pride they are going. Not to mention the fact that jobs aren't exactly falling out of trees at the moment.

But lets not forget what they will be a part of. It's the Tonight Show. Aside from SNL, it's a television staple. The chance to work on such a show doesn't come often and may likely be a once in your life time event.

Why would this be a topic worth writing about. Well it's starting to drive me crazy each time people ask me do I know if such and such made up their mind to go yet.

Trust me, if they are walking around right now telling you they are not sure, they're not being truthful. Everyone knew way back in April of '08 if they wanted to to go or not. At this point the only way you wouldn't want to go is if you weren't ask to go. Period.

O'k, maybe that's a comma, since I know of a couple of people who were asked recently but knew well in advance, again since last year, that they didn't want to or couldn't go.

This is an adventure. A scary ass, what the fuck am I doing adventure. Get off the drama train and be happy that you're about to take part in television history.

Wow, I don't believe I just wrote that. So what's really bothering me?...

Last night I ate at a vegetarian restaurant which turned out to be a nice surprise since I've never been there before. The place is called "Home On 8th". It's on 8th avenue near Penn station, a neighborhood peppered with bars and sexy lingerie/dvd stores.

It amazing how you can live in New York and still discover new and interesting places. Last Sunday was another perfect example. I was walking along 2nd avenue going towards St. Marks Place and came across this incredible Japanese toy store, Toy Tokyo. I thought I had died and went to Japanese anime toy heaven.

The store owner claimed they've been in business for over 10 years. How could I have not known about this place in all that time. There were many things worth buying in there but I had to show self control. Since anything I buy now would have to be included in my move. As it stands I will be paying a fortune to move and store the bulk of my toy collection since I will have to rent a small apartment in L.A. to start.

Only a month and a half left before change begin. In a couple of weeks I will head out to L.A. to lock down an apartment, then return to New York, start packing and move out hopefully by the end of March.

I can't help but wonder what the toys and comic shop will be like out there. When I was in San Francisco a couple of years ago with Late Night, after tapings, a friend of mine, Lizzy, took me to some amazing stores in that area. I ended up shipping a hugh box back to New York. Funny, now it's all heading back, out west.

I think this weekend I'll take some finally pictures of my place as it is for memory sake and then start boxing stuff.

As much as I want to do this move I can't help but wonder if this is the right move to make. Will I be happy out there. Will living out there be a positive experience. What new friends will come into my life. What old ones will move on.

One thing for sure, good or bad experiences, there will be new toys and comics stores to discover. least I hope there will be.
