I have no clue why I waited so long to get Netflix. Worst mistake of my life—waiting so long. I’ve already watched movies about extraterrestrial ghettos, Japanese schoolchildren killing competitions, and tiger thefts…and I’m still on my free trial membership. Life changing.
When I told the worker at Blockbuster that I just got Netflix he admitted to me that he got Netflix too.
This is a photo of the lobby of Aria on opening night, right after they let the public in. Before they did, they had a private opening gala. You can read my notes from the Aria opening gala by clicking HERE.
I haven't been kicked out of a club...yet. But I've seen it happen a lot of times. Sometimes I agree with the kick out, other times I don't. I wrote a story about the 'real' reason people get kicked out of clubs, and you can read it by clicking HERE.
PS, thanks to my fantastic friend Sheena for posing for the picture!
I went Hanukkah shopping at CRYSTALS MALL in CITYCENTER last week. Didn't find much within my price range, but I did find a $440 paperclip. I mean, technically it was a paperclip shaped money clip...but doesn't that just make it a paperclip? The mall was very pretty, though, and the space was unlike anything I've ever seen. Kinda reminded me of an MC Escher picture. Anyway, you can read my REVIEW OF CRYSTALS MALL by clicking RIGHT HERE.
Alright, kids, the time is here. Aria opens tonight. My roommate is working the opening gala as a model/hostess, and I'll be covering the event for Las Vegas Weekly.
In other news, I'm finishing up the third draft of my deception book, and working on a bunch more stories for LVW, and I've got a lot of friends and family visiting in Dec/Jan, and also I'm putting the finishing touches on this perpetual motion machine...so...yeah...this'll be a busy couple weeks.
PS, just did a google image search of ARIA and the first ten images to come up were of some porn star named ARIA. I have a feeling the page rankings will change in the next few days...
I just don't get it. Why do some companies purposely misspell their own names? Will somebody with Kraft or Tastee Freez please explain to me how the misspelling increases business?
Last week I saw the live Glenn Beck movie. Cost me twenty freakin' dollars! Anyway, here's my review:
Cut to a shot of a theater stage on which a choir of children sang Christmas songs. Maybe two of the 20 kids were white. Contrast that with the people at Regal Village Square; everybody sitting in the theater was white.

I just found this letter I wrote to my Senator when I was ten years old. The first sentence is pretty dull, but things pick up from there. Easily the most persuasive letter I’ve ever written. I present to you the letter in full:
October 5, 1992
Dear Congressman Levin:
Right now my class is studying some of the hazards of our state, country, continent, and even our world. For example. Population density, deforestation and POLLUTION!! Now let’s pretend there was some kind of fish in our Great Lakes that had the main ingredient for a cure for AIDS and it gets caught in some pollution, for example pop bottle rings or plastic bags, and became extinct. Then imagine if your son or daughter got AIDS. You would be not very happy. So I’m asking if you could make some kind of law saying you can’t dump any more trash in the Great Lakes.
