DONATIONS FOR BRIAN REDMAN'S FAMILY

On the evening of September 26th 2009, we lost Brian Redman in a scooter accident. Brian Redman was not only an amazing and enlightening asset to the music community as well as an amazing asset to everyone at Crown, but beyond words as a friend. He never felt the need to explain himself and his quick witted sarcasm. He wanted nothing more than to put a smile on everyone's faces. He has been a staple in the music community from the late 90’s with Left With Nothing, Trial, 3 Inches of blood., and his last band Dirty Knockers. Many memories are left, and he is missed beyond words. Crown is working with his Mother directly whom he loved more than life itself. Donations can be made via Paypal to: rosie.mcpherson@gmail.com Donations can also be left with your driver when you ride with Crown. Please make checks payable to Roseann Mcpherson.
Checks can also be mailed to:

Ύπνος μακροχρόνιος, ύπνος καλά

We're given gifts, were revoked of gifts. We can't control some of the most inflicting events upon our hearts. I'm so thankful, and for not 1 second do I take for granted what I have in my life and my friends. Most of my friends I have known for over 20 years now. We've been there for each other, and have grown, but at the same time have never hidden behind any of our dysfunction, or some whirlwind of drama we have created upon ourselves. We've had the balls to confront and recognize some of the shit that life has thrown us, but never to sit complacent and just accept it as most of us have witnessed with most of the world. I'm proud to call my friends "friends". I'm glad to have created the music I have created with them. I'm proud that it has all stood the test of time because it was created out of passion. Not some trend. I'm proud of my life. I'm proud of my Brother, my Mother, my amazing girlfriend, what my Father always taught me. My Father and l butted heads hard as I was growing up, but it's better to think and recognize the intention they had and always had pushed across, then to point fingers and act a victim. I'm an adult and I can only blame myself, correct and move along in the path I choose. However, there are some things we cannot choose. People, close people get taken out of our lives in a split second. The people that you are proud to call "friend" the night you went to sleep, are no longer alive the next morning when you wake. It can happen this quickly. Brian Redman was one of those people. I bonded with him in a very rare way for me. He's on of "us". He never had the need to explain himself, just wants the good for any and everyone, did what he wanted to do, and never hurt anyone. I lost a close friend, and was so proud to call him friend, and was beyond honored to have him driving for Crown. I can still hear him talking, I still have his last email from just 2 days ago. I still have the Hardcore Superstar playlist I made him in my iTunes. I still have his text inviting Nikki and I out to his Fathers place. It's devastating. I haven't lost anyone in awhile, and I've definitely become more methodical with dealing with these things after losing over a dozen friends and family over my life. This one hit me hard. He didn't deserve it. Brian, I love you and miss you, my heart goes out to his Mother who he talked about so much, his Father, his fellow bandmates, his co-workers, and the rest of my drivers. Brian, we all miss you here terribly.

Definitely realized I haven't been "me". As in "hungry", so it's time to reap the benefits of being a CEO. Kill it. New ideas, new plans, new motivation. I've gotten soft and fat. Watch out, here comes the money hungry Greek again. You're next. Also, I've been reminded why I'm with Nikki. When a girl has to repeat that she is "Hot", that's Greek for "I'm nuttier than a squirrel turd." I just heard 2 gun shots. Night you retarded world.

Validation is a crazy thing. I've always been fairly optimistic, but still when something/someone amazing comes to you unexpectedly, it puts you into a shock. Especially if it's someone you have known for a long while. You always have had the thoughts of what it would be like, you were always attracted, you always knew it would be good, but for whatever reason you just never felt ready to pursue. Then somehow, everything aligns.... You always knew, but still caught off guard. They come along and validate everything you knew existed in people, but have never found. My perspective on everything feels so different right now. Completely right. Like I've known it's suppose to feel this way. The whole reason I haven't settled before. I knew what I was waiting for.

Left standing alone. I can give out all the advice I can give, but I'm left alone..... Why or how am I here? I question my own integrity, my own decisions, my own fucking ridiculousness. So fucking confusing! I knew what was going to happen. I was called presumptuous, but also said to have great intuition. So why the fuck am I here? I'm literally made fun of for having girls everywhere, I'd rather chew my left arm off than sleep with someone that doesn't make me happy, or lead them on. But I can't get what I want. Therapy no longer helps. late night thoughts, while avoiding late night booty calls, can't stand myself, can't stand you.... Can't stand bullshit. Fuck....

διαχωριστική γραμμή

About to head home... Dead city tonight. Not feeling too well. Coming down with a cold, spirits are down, lonely, horny, but if I act on any of it, broken hearts. What I want isn't ready, nor available right now, and what wants me are all too fragile and young. The term and notion of "love" is being passed around more than the collection plate on a sabbath.... Except no one is cashing in.

This was the only positive thing tonight.... 3am 13 Coins bucket of clams.

Δολοφονία για την επιχείρηση

I couldn't stop myself
I knew I'd do it again
But I could heal myself,
If I could feel your skin
And if I comprehend this moment
I know we'll live again
And if I heal your wound
We will make love again
And now we're slipping through this millenium
We should feel sorry for the people
Can I kiss your skin?
And there's hunger in the desert.
And missiles in the sky
And every soul is interwoven
Before the wrong or right
I know we'll live again
Though it's just a feeling
I know we'll never end
I'll keep you company


KILLING FOR COMPANY....


How long will I last like this? How long?

Προχωρημένες ώρες

Late long hours as I sit here in China Town and type. Hanoi Rocks "Don't You Ever Leave Me" up loud on the stereo.... One of the slowest nights for me in a very long time. I guess everyone is over it after Memorial Day Weekend huh?

Thoughts crossed my mind of wanting kids tonight. Strong thoughts. Almost an instinctual feeling came across me. The thought has never scared me. I just find beauty in freedom. Freedom to take your time, to be selfish, even freedom to procrastinate. Thats the beauty of my lifestyle right now. But I think I would have a lot to offer. It's a lot to ponder.

As of right now, I'm just starting to feel like I'm actually growing up in so many ways. I spent a great, great deal alone when I was young. Especially the time when all my Father, Mother and Brother were cab driving at the same time at night. It was completely normal to find myself home alone @ 12 years old til 2am or later. I figured an awful lot about living, and keeping myself busy. I grew up independent, street smart, and logical for the most part. But, i also lacked a lot of guidance. Guidance that transforms into becoming an adult. Managing money, simple things... I lacked these skills. I'm finally mastering these things. It feels good.

One more hour to go....

Τρόπος να είναι παχύς

BBQ, drinks, Melvins courtesy of Ben Shepard, food. However right as I was getting to sleep, I get a call @ 5am about one of my cars not starting. No big deal, its just a bad battery. Won't charge. Cool, I'll just swap it out. 2 hours later, and a fight with a ridiculously stubborn battery clamp rod bolt, I got it changed. Yee haw! Off to bed...

Interesting night tonight. Just got home from a sloppy wet downpour of a night. Slammed then dead... slammed then dead, repeat. However I was given this amazing bottle as a gift of Beams Choice Bourbon Whisky bottled in 1969 from a regular of mine who's a bartender. Extremely sweet of her. 86 proof and was bottled over 8 years old, which brings its age to 49 years old... I'm doing research on this bottle which has serial numbers.

Monday, May 18, 2009

Just got home from working all night. Good night especially for a Sunday. A lot of fun, and The $$$ was good. You know it's a good night when you find this in the backseat of your car.

κυνηγός

You are not inspiration... Maybe let me step back just enough to say, you inspire me to realize you are nothing original. Believe me when I say I am not here to self loathe... I pass as you decide whether I'm the next cool thing to talk to, or too last year to talk to... Your own decisions are hard to make when you're not paying attention to the ones who are hunting you, breathing down your neck.... Right there, so close. Blurry visioned, field of vision is far from focused... Keep processing, keep deliberating. Final days will arrive, and you may have just caught the one. The one your hunter told you was evil......

θυμός

Un-dealt demons.... You never see... Deaf ears will pay. Logic stares you in the face, but bleeds out the same way it goes in. I tremble to hold back my anger, but I will not be who I am proving to not be. I barely have the strength to do so, but I sit here proud but still frustrated.

Στη θανάτωση

At work. Driving all night on what I'm sure will be a slow going Monday night. They almost always are. Sitting in Farva (All Crown Cars are named after a Super Troopers Reference) waiting for my next call. Just dropped a local bartender off @ the convenience store 1 block from his bar so he could buy smokes. Got a lot done in reference to the new cars being put on the road. Almost done with the Wa. State aspect of it all. Just city and DOL and they'll be ready to roll.

Day one of The Master Cleanse. I went and fucked it all up with a tostada and a cran vodka. Haha. 3 days in too. I was doing it all wrong anyway. I wasn't nearly adding enough Maple syrup to the mix let alone even drinking enough of the mix in general. I was only drinking 5 servings, and it should have been upwards of 11. Needless to say, I feel a lot better. Not hungry at all. It's a lot better ice cold as opposed to hot as well. Stay hungry!

Έναρξη

So I get to start this whole Cleansing thing all over. Just weighed myself. 201.6 lbs Going for at least 10 days, and no more than 14. I was doing it wrong the first 3 days anyway. So, I start tomorrow officially with the salt water flush... Uh oh. So scary. Wish me luck....again.

Κενό

I need to hit the road... 100+ MPH. I need clarity. I feel like I always lose sometimes. Not claiming to be a victim, but I just feel I've been dealt the bad luck hand... I feel empty, blank, hollow....

Just wanna hit the fuckin' gas...

Πειθαρχία

I'm doing the Master Cleanse Fast right now. Day 3. Consists of hot purified water, real lemon juice, 100% pure maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. So far so good. Not thinking too much about food, except how I want my food choices to be when I'm done. Planning on a min. of 10 days, so we shall see how far past I get. It's already done quite a bit. Down 3lbs., my complexion is clearing up quite a bit, and I really feel the weight difference. I do miss my gyros. Damn... Don't worry little gyro... I just need some space... I'll be back for you. I promise...

Ευτυχία

We wonder what holds us back at times... Sometimes we just cannot put a finger on it. Sometimes we never really give it the thought it deserves... Often we give the trivial more thought than what's important to us to be truly happy... Sometimes we don't give it hard effort on purpose. Sometimes we don't want to hear the truth. So in fear of feeling badly hurt for a short moment, we'd rather suffer a greater part of our lives. We enable others to hold our happiness. It doesn't end there. Our life's path is ultimately tainted by another individual. We sacrifice our liberation for that thread of "hope". For what? For someone or something that has completely shipwrecked our lives.... People and dreams that deserve that hope do not hold you back. They encourage, motivate, inspire. Never let someone hold your happiness.
uhhh.... Seriously. Couldn't say it better than Mr.Ronnie Van Zant himself.... Right here!

Πόλη της σμαράγδου

Good night... I feel I'm in a place where I feel bold, confident, in place. No one can shake me, no more lookin' over my shoulder... My foundation is strong and defiant. I have everything strategically placed. This city is amazing.. This city is mine.

έξι έτη

Six years Pops. Six years since I've seen you.... You're up in heaven, and I'm sure it looks like this. Gyro Delight Chicago style Greek fast food. Ate here tonight in your honor. Love you.

Πρόοδος

Sitting behind the wheel all night til' 6am. Driving all night... Dealing with all sorts of shit on every level and every aspect of life right now. Trying to remember my agenda. Extremely moody lately... Almost like I can't remember who I am right now. One day I might be the shyest boy you have ever met, one day, you're in my way of getting things done, one day, I'm playful and outgoing, one day I just want to stay in and not see a living being. Things are progressing however. Lots of music at night to keep me sane. Another step another day.

Αβεβαιότητα

Crazies, empty hearts, drunks, desolation.... Those are the words that come to mind tonight as I sit here waiting for a fare @ 3:28am in the middle of Westlake Center. The crazies are making me crazy, love and romance are making me crazy, the economy is making me crazy, work is making me crazy, this lonliness.... is making me crazy.

ιδεοληψία

I'm obsessing....

μια αναζήτηση μου ήταν μια αναζήτηση σας

Still Thinking a lot about those lyrics from the last post. It makes me realize I put up with so much bullshit in my past relationships. Not just relationships, but in my general lifestyle. I've realized all of this for awhile now, but its all just becoming so much more transparent. Its all much more easier for me to see where I want to go and where I want to be. Late night ramblings...

Here's to Lux

Είναι καλό, αλλά δεν είναι ακριβώς δεξιά

i wanted the women
to go round the world
got the boat down to helsinki city
with boys who act like little girls
it ain't quite what i pictured
ain't quite what i had in mind
i realized that the closer i got
that close has the taste of real cheap wine
clearly - nearly
i open my eyes but only see things barely
i can smell it but i don't get high
i know it's good but it just ain't right
ended up with a donkey
when my mind was set on a horse
bargained and begged for a pony and i rode it
with a fake smile on only wanting more
i've had it with just about right now
moderate won't get me no far
been through almosts, okays, in betweens, nighs and decents
but close just ain't no cigar
clearly - nearly
in the corner of my eye only works in theory
i can see it even shines a light
i know it's good but it just ain't right
clearly - nearly
i open my eyes but only see things barely
i can smell it but i don't get high
i know it's good but it just ain't right

..... Fuck. More precise words don't exist to perfectly describe how I've always felt. Despite what people say... these lyrics remind me why being older is better. The realizations. Amazing.

Πρόοδος

Working tonight... Things are moving forward nicely, and I've been in a good mood. Work most this week except Saturday. Can't wait to get all the cars legal and on the road! This NEVER gets old.

Εάν ο κόσμος πήγε μακριά

Every day that I wake up there is always something I learn about myself or about other people. I feel like I'm starting to embrace much more like I did when I felt full of angst and passion when I was younger. It was more positive, more charming to myself. It may have much to do with the newer people that have come across in my life that have renewed a lot of my outlook. I always get excited to meet people that can teach me and motivate me. Life isn't too bad lately... Business is rolling forward at a much quicker pace, its the eve of our new presidents welcome to the White House, my Mother, my Brother are in good health (minus my little flu that I perceived/stubbornly as allergies). I've cut out all recreational drugs that I had been using minus a sleeping aid far and few between, as well as my alcohol intake. Been focusing on less meat, and hoping to get motivated by spring to really start in with the gym again. Went and saw Lemmy's other band Head Cat play the other day at El Corazon. It was great to see him in that venue so close and laid back. I guess he just hung-out afterward and just played pinball. A few crazy strange people, but other than that, it was killer.

σκοτεινό όνειρο

Why do our heroes all vanish?
Why are our heroes all dead?
In the dark of night I hear the vultures scream
And I just can't seem to wake up from the dream.....

σαγανάκι


This more or less made up my mood for most of the day. Giorgias' Greek restaurant on N. 85th. Saganaki is so good. Was craving it all week. I also bought a pack of their pita bread as well. Things are FINALLY starting to really get rolling with Crown. I'm extremely excited about this. Have so much to do. Looking for new cars etc.

υποκρισία

He will call out the card
You can't call it out when its face up
hypocrisy is focus
Focusing on hypocrisy takes your eyes off the prize

Κρύος ιδρώτας

This is where my Mother and Father met... Pink Elephant car wash Denny and Aurora in the 60's. They were both washing their taxis they each leased from Farwest Taxi. Tonight, I went to a friends going away party @ Juju Lounge, then went over to one of my drivers Birthday parties @ El Corazon. Un-fortunately I only caught the last band which had him singing, doing Jawbreaker songs. Good times. I walked home down Denny Way passing the Pink Elephant @2:20am. I love what that elephant sign means to me. This is my town. I love it here.


Today marks the 23rd anniversary of Phil Lynott's passing. Fuckin' charisma, great man. Here's to his honour...
