This Post Has No Point . . .

. . . but whatever.

I went to the Bulls game tonight with some good buddies.  On my way home I had to stop at the grocery store to get some socks because I have been too lazy to do my laundry and need some for tomorrow.  I wanted to stop off and get something to eat too, but because I didn't want to make another stop, I got some jalapeno chips and a gatorade.  Socks, chips, gatorade, and this worthless update . . .

I decided I needed to research a few things I was thinking about tonight . . .

1. A guy named Malcolm Thomas checked in for the Bulls and did pretty well for the Bulls tonight, and despite all of us being Chicago sports fans, none of us had heard of him.  It turns out he played for the Bulls' summer league team but ended up playing in Israel before being signed.  Hard guy to figure out a nickname for . . .

2. I was telling my buddy James Douglas Morrison that I have been reading the Keith Richards biography, and he asked if he mentioned the rivalry between the Stones and the Doors.  No, was there one?  I'll look that up too . . . I could find nothing about that on the internet, but if there was one, based on what I have read, I would say it would be about Mick hating on Jim because he was a better-looking front man using his sexuality the way Mick did.  Keith is pretty open about how nutty Mick was about a lot of stuff, but I will say that at least Mick was never nearly as big a junkie as Keith, so there's that . . .

3. This has nothing to do with looking anything up, but I was thinking about it.  Yesterday I get a text from my father that read: "I was saddened to hear of the passing of Annette Funicello.  As a boy watching her in those sweaters on the "Mickey Mouse Club," she made me love boobs.

Keith Richards was interviewed by the BBC about his book and he came across as a surprisingly thoughtful man, even though his brain was obviously the worse for wear from years of substance abuse.

Gorilla: I think he is just hard to understand and mumbles like an idiot, but once you're catching his drift, he is absolutely a smart dude.

Yeah, it was more of a Mick vs Jim thing I suppose. I guess all of The Doors met Mick Jagger at Jim's hotel room before the famous Hollywood Bowl show. They took him out to dinner and were nice to him. After the concert Mick gave them a bad review despite how great of a show it was. He was apparently jealous of Jim's performance. Also, it was reported that Mick kept putting Jim's girlfriend Pamela Courson on his lap during the show to get to Jim and try to ruin the performance. After that Jim wasn't a big fan for some reason.

She did have some nice boobies!

Jim: From what I have read, this is very believable. There are many accounts of Mick trying to get on girls to piss people off, and he didn't like the band to get close to anyone else, like Gram Parsons - he hit on that guy's girlfriend until he wouldn't come around anymore - didn't like that he hit it off so much with Keith musically.

Zibbs: The man knows his knockers.

I read his autobiography. I don't think there's any celeb who has come close to living the life that he has or the things he's experienced. He's one of a kind.
