    Hey Everybody,
    It is that time of the month again.
    July is always a busy one for me – lots of festivals and shows and holy cow life is a fun ride!

    But because it has been so busy – I haven’t really had a chance to flush out some of these thoughts. So I just decided to list them.
    Ya know how on facebook – your little tag line always starts with your name?

    So I put them all in that format. Here we go…

    Chris Chandler…

    ... is violating the terms of his Facebook contract.

    …has made it official - this is the official site of the 20112 Olympic Games in London.

    … looks at his watch (which is his cell phone) and shouts "Danged rollover minutes… now time is not on my side it's on my back."

    ... pictures an old movie style poster with a picture of three swordsmen as "The Free Marketeers and a caption reading "All for one and none for all."

    ... looks out his window and sees closed factories and a homeless guy by the interstate, with a sign that reads: "American Idle."

    ... envisions a new television reality show called "F*%king With The Porn-Stars" in which porn industry producers and directors will hold up score cards judging the prowess of forgotten minor celebrities as we watch them give real porn stars their best shot.

    …insists it be called "Obsessive Compulsive Order!"

    ... believes billboards form in first light shadows, inviting us all to focus on something other than the beauty that is already there.

    …thinks hard work is like bathing. Ya gotta do it everyday - or very soon it's like you never did it all.

    …is pretty sure everyone else on the planet is a tourist visiting his home

    …is trying to figure out the difference between flexibility and indecisiveness.

    … is pretty successful at meeting expenses… in a singles bar.

    …thinks just because you are right doesn’t mean I have to agree with you.

    …is trying to imagine a hypothetical situation.

    ,,, corrected Jen after she said that we would be home after dark. By saying, "No, we'll be home after light."

    ...is singing Ruby Tuesday is Gone With The Wind Cries Mary Had a little Baby Please Don't Go Speed Racer X - es Live in Texas T for Tennessee Stud

    …is singing, "Well, they say it's your Earth Day Well, It's my Earth Day too, yea."

    ... is working as a stagehand striking the stage for Earth Day in the rain. Should I complain?

    ... sees oncoming head lights parade by like sad clowns or full moons looking down on an awkward girl with a nervous laugh and a British accent in a distant city.

    ... is wondering if his car is cluttered or this is his own quirky aestheticism

    …was afraid of facing his fears so he turned his back on them and saw all of the hope and inspiration that trailed behind.

    ... is reading Aleksandr Pushkin while listening to Southern Culture on the Skids.

    ….sometimes gets lost in thought - but he also gets lost in the supermarket.

    ...shouts, "ENOUGH really is ENOUGH!"

    ... figures, if life were easy everybody would be having one.

    …is very thankful for the life he has.
