  1. You’re in Penix. Again. And let me take a guess as to what you did yesterday “on site” at your client’s office:

    1) Researched AZ and CA dmv and rental car internet sites about speeding tickets, traffic school and points.
    2) Asked everyone who would answer you about speeding tickets, traffic school and points.
    3) Listened to the recordings from Slim’s. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
    4) Posted an ad on morrissey-solo and then monitored it like a proud papa ready to pound on trolls.

    Modest Mouse is one of the musical horrors in performance history. Second only to Zila, the offshoot of String Cheese Incident that Jem duped me and Heather into seeing last year. “Float On” was actually a song I enjoyed until I saw Modest Mouse at Download Festival 2005 and wanted to find hot pokers to sear through my ear drums. I have memories of texting back and forth w/Joel and Heather from across Shoreline Ampitheater over the bad music misery of it all. Taking pictures of ice cubes that glowed in the dark w/Shel. And actually ending up w/quite a show as we got to watch a horny lesbian couple make out in front of us. Kinda like when we left Blackthorn Tavern the other night. I cannot help it. The lesbian couples do like to make out in front of me. I digress. Johnny Marr needs a mousetrap. Maybe some Mouse Ears for earplugs. He will need a More Than A Modest Miracle to pull off making this band sound better. I don’t doubt that he can do this.

    This Charming Ben, er Glenn: 2006 Poster Model for Speeding
    You know you’re hoping they’ll really just contact you to be their perfect hair model.

    I loved hearing “Girl Afraid”. This Girl Likey. Things I don’t like? FRED. I do not heart FRED. Or drunks ass girls walking across pedal boards and taking band water bottles. I also loved “Boxers”. Is that drunk guy still peeing in his pants after shouting that request over and over? There’s nothing like making a fan’s musical request a reality.

    I’ll try and say ‘hi’ to you this weekend. Hope you recognize me.

    • Aww, a return to form… a gigantor comment like the old days! As far as what I did yesterday while “on site,” well you know me far too well. It’s like you were there in the room with me! Honestly. Kinda spooky.

      Guess who the “friend of mine” who “generally has great taste in music, but I hear she hates Modest Mouse” is? I’m sure they’re sorry about the Download Festival. If MM were here, they’d say, “Baby, we know we hurt you in the past, but we’re different now. Give us another chance. We have Johnny now. We’re changed men. Come back to us.” Apparently, they sound like Barry White when they’re sorry? Come on, BFF. Give them another chance.

      Those lesbians by Blackthorn reminded me of the scene in “Monster” where they have their first kiss with Journey playing in the background. I stand by my statement that it was one of the most romantic moments in recent cinema.

      I don’t know about being on a poster, but Glenn does have great hair.

      Yeah, what was that? Of all the songs, he requested “Boxers” on the night Ozzolini just happened to be ready to play it? I think he was hired by our esteemed singer.

      Of course I’ll recognize you! You’ll be the Filipina in earth tones, right?

      • Dear Modest Mouse,

        I give you one last chance due to your recent acquisition of Johnny Marr. Don’t disappoint. Actually, don’t f**k up.

        Yours truly,


  2. From the expert…

    1) Will the fact that I was in a rental change anything? Yes, they may charge you as well.
    2) Will the fact I live out of state change anything? no.
    3) Will the fact that this was “business travel” change anything? no.
    4) Will nature make a man of me yet? no.
    5) A fine is fine… I just don’t want DMV points. Do I get any for this? If so, are they transferred to my home state’s DMV or is it left in AZ? And if so, can I take local or online traffic school and have it apply in AZ? Yes. CA. Yes.

    Actually, I don’t know if those answers are right… but I feel like I have enough experience and I SHOULD know! ;o)
