Hello  and welcome to my(Joseph C. Griffin) blog.  Today our topic of discussion will be the presidential candidates and their favourite sex toys....

meh forget about that who wants to talk about george and his bush buddies.  Lets talk business here.  I just recently got my Driver's license and to me that grants much freedom.  Today I drove over to an old friends and watched him play guitar and then made a bee-line ------ to the downtown Oswego area where I did whatever the hell I wanted to do because I drove there.  I went to antique stores, acted suspicious hid behind things and made sure the owner was looking and then with my hand in my jacket booked out the door and down the street to my car.  No I never stole anything but I sure as hell looked like it. 

I have also made myself a promise to pay back anyone and everyone who has bussed me around in the worries I'm really good.  I passed my test with flying colours.

And now I would like to address everyone who is a current DAS member to give me a call regarding the plans for our especiale group of preformers.  Plan to attend a meeting soon because we have a gorgeous place to act at now.  If you need my number then email me and send me a picture of your favourite pair of shoes and I'll give you my number.

Till next we meet.

P.S.-Brian, how do i get pictures up in my blog I'm getting a bit peeved!

Greetings Lads and Lasses!

Estoy aqui

I'm back from camp and returning to a somewhat normal life.  Camp was long and pointless.  My boyscout troop  set off for Camp Freeland Leslie a week ago.  To start the whole trip off we went to Noahs ark and rampaged all over the park for the whole first day of our excursion.  When we finally got to our camp later that same day we were psyched and ready for a week of classes and sailing and just bullshittin' around.  About halfway through the week I was really itchy from my semi beard that had grown in and I felt like filth despite the two showers I took a day.  At the end of the week my hair was greasy my face looked that of a 30  year old who had just lost his job and accidentally wandered off into a local bar and had two too many drinks.  I was in a confused daze and for me packing up the site and folding up the tents was abuse like I'd never received.  The fact that I was the oldest kid there and my best company was Jimmy Marter I was about to strangle the younger kids...Oh I'm sorry I mean the younger mistakes! 

The day I got back Alison and I rented some movies and watched them at her place.  I felt all sanity return to me.   Je t'aime Alison!

Amalie is a great movie.  I hadn't seen it but had heard much talk of how wonderful the movie was and I have to admit...I liked it...  So for any of you lazy asses out there who have not yet seen it go now and rent it...If you don't have a blockbuster card steal...I mean borrow your parent's card and go rent Amelie!

I decided to rent a movie I had wanted to see for quite some time...The Triplets of Belleville!  If you are the type who likes twisted French cartoon movies this is a movie I would come up to you and say,"Hey, you need to rent this."  You of course the sick twisted person you are would say ," Hah!  You are Silly!"  and then you would go rent it and find that even though there isn't even one complete sentence uttered during the whole movie you would say something like,"  Cool."

Well hey!  I've been gone for a whole week so I expect to get updates from everyone.

Live long and prosper!
Longs de phase et prospèrent!

Hey peeps! another dull boring day. I cleaned my room today...yeah that's bad for me. I usually make a mess of it on a daily basis, cleaning it is totally out of character.

summer camp is coming soon. I gotta start packing...meh i'll get to it eventually.

I called Alison tonight and we talked for an hour. I can't believe how bad I miss her now that things for us just started off. I hope i'm not acting childish. I have just had a great time with her and i'm soooo anxious to continue. well patience is a virtue.

My grandpa's made!

Yep! The rumors are true my grandpa is a made man!!!!...Well he's made in a sense that he's a made monk. Yep my grandpa, after 5 years of rookieism has now been fully inducted into the monastery of Peru Illinois. Pretty cool but pretty boring. I can't stand too much of my extended family so staying over night was only for the worse.

Well Alison is gone for two weeks and I'm gonna be gone in a week so I'm hoping by the time she's back I'm back.

Other than that I'm pretty set for the next week or so to just blow by...yep that would work out great...but no that would be too good to ask for...

I'm bored somebody call me and tickle my fancy! - 272-7840

Just got back from a wonderful date and decided I can't sleep...So I blog.

Sushi Is soo good I need to make a note to get out and eat at the Sushi House more often. I would advise any couples out there to go there. It's perfect for a date. I think tonight was the best first date ever it went really well. Ugh I can't sum up in words how good I feel tonight!

being that it is now 1 o'clock I will announce that TODAY I will be purchasing a CANE later tonight. Yes that's right a cane and I'm gonna be damn proud to own it too. While all you none cane types walk around falling all over the place I'm gonna be traipsing around like a dandy! So haha.

Today I will leave with my first dandy comment to you all...quick get ready this is a moment.

"I'd buy that for a dollar!"

(inside joke sorry folks)

My life has finally come to a pause.
I can actually relax and not worry about homework or putting on a show.
Showchoir is there for me now but we're still early in the process of that and we only meet on Mondays...Today is a Monday!

today I went to commotion and was still half asleep and definitely not mentally or physically prepared for it. We ran three laps around the track after stretching and that woke me up. To tell you the truth that is one of the main reasons I joined Commotion. It gives me a reason to run and that's what I need otherwise I'm in the bad habit of not staying healthy. Hopefully I can lose some weight here in the process and tone up my muscles. YAY!
When It came time for us to sing he brought us up in quartets and I was picked in the third quartet and it was very apparent that I didn't look at the music at all...
Needless to say I was quite embarrassed. We did get two new songs and I was quite pleased with them. One is from the musical Pippen which I have yet to see but have heard a lot from and one was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and performed by Earth Wind and Fire.

I have a new, old Latin saying I want to base my life on It's Carpe Diem. Carpe Diem is a Latin expression meaning "seize the day". The saying is attributed to the Roman poet Horace (65 B.C. to 8 A.D.). Carpe Diem is probably the shortest and best known formulation of the idea of viewing life as a gift and making one's own fate. It is the challenge to recognize the prospects of the now, make the best out of every day and consciously enjoy the moment.

So to all of you out there I say Carpe Diem and good night!

Well I just got back from guitar practice where I learned more arpeggios and now I will update you all on the bonfire.

Last night opening night went fantastic. I think only one technical problem occured with a microphone and our beloved krillian the cd Villain but that should be fixed for the next two nights.

Other than that everything went smooth. I'm still waiting for a certain someone to come to the performance and find a certain something umm selfpleasing? i think Mr. Fauth will connect with me on this gratifying point. ::moo::

OOO I'd like to give some props out to Mr. Bennet(please let that spelling be right!) who at the last second...and i mean last second decided to help us out and play the part of Steve. He came on the stage the opening night we ran the scenes before the crowd came and he went on the same night and he performed the part...Mr B (not barnes) You are THE man! Your daughter should be proud of you...that is if she already isn't but i'm sure she is.

tonight i'm expecting the crowd to be a little more responsive...yeah that's right. last nights crowd was good....just a little slow at times...that's alright you can make it up to me by seeing the show again!

well other than that ...oh hey announcement!! I've got a new brother! yep my surrogate parents have birthed me a new one and i'm proud to announce that Eric Swanson is my surrogate brother!

yeah other than all that stuff I'm just anxious to get it on tonight




eww if you take the first letters of those three words you get GWC which boy did i have quite the experience there.(ask me later about that story it's something i can't post)

see ya bye!

Well I'm back and writing all thanks to my rave reviews...Brian...Diana.

Well I've kinda slacked off lately and know The Bonfire is here. Yes that's right I'm typing this a couple of hours before the show. For any latecomers it's at Bednarcik(I think that's spelled right) at 7:00 and the admission fee is $5. I have to admit this is gonna be a great show. I can only hope that our gnarly posters and incessant chants will reach out to all the small people and bring them in to label themselves as our audience. Brian our Director has really done a great job Directing this show and he's helped me out immensely throughout my acting career. I'd have to say he is a big influence in my day to day whenever I work for him. Then there are the two "surrogate" parents of mine Brems and Wacky. I can't sum up in words the ...adventures...experiences...and knowledge I've taken from those two asside from all the grab ass that does on a daily basis go on between them. The whole cast is greatly bonded to each other. If for some odd chance you don't like the show then at least note how the cast is so dedicated to each other. The way i've always viewed a show is like it were a large puzzle. We start off day one with all the pieces that is the actors the script and a busket full of ideas. We have no idea where they are all going to go but we start in and try a piece there and if it doesn't fit we try something else. When we are at the end and all the pieces are together all the hard work is at it's end we stand back and look at the art we've made. and hopefully a message or an inspiration is conveyed to the people who view our masterpiece. brb

Today Was Phucking Great!

I didn't get to sleep for long last night only five hours but I woke up to the most gorgeous day ever. I got out of bed and new exactly what to i took a quick shower got dressed brushed my teeth and ran for the television and watched three hours straight of sopranos season 3...yay.

Really today sucked ass.

I woke up at like 11 because i went to bed at around five in the morning. And all day long I was so fricking bored. Oh but the night before i wrote a pretty kick ass song. It was inspired by the show that we're doing right now as you all know to be The Bonfire. It's about the main character Tom and the choices he has to make. It's not as much a song about the play as it is just a song about a guy named tom. wanna hear it well pull me over next time you see me on the road and hold a gun to my head and sing me mary had a little lamb and i'd be glad to questions just do it.

So yeah yesterday Sarah watts threw this kickin ass movie party and everyone shot down my Flan. Yeah that's right you fucking assholes I spend two whole phucking hours over the hot stove making a GREAT dish for everyone and then they all shove it back in my face. well you guys are sad. learn to expand your phucking whore-I-zons.

The movie was good... the godfather.

I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse!...

Can't Buy a Thrill
By Steely Dan

Well erebody here I am and to conclude my last weeks experience of working at prairiefest lets just say people in parking lots are total assholes too much sun hurts and money is never worth actually working.

One experience in particular during prariefest perturbed me the most. I was on parking lot duty directing traffic and this one guy starts driving towards me and i point him right telling him that that is the exit( which was very clearly marked "exit") He ignored my signals and drove up straight in front of me. I moved my arm in a motion meaning please sir roll down your window i need to tell your dense ass what you're doing wrong apparently. I told him sir this is the entrance and i can't let you through here you'll have to back up and go out the exit like the rest of the traffic. He flipped me his fav finger and told me i was going to move for him and after a certain car entered i'd stop traffic for him and let him exit out the entrance. I said in response with much sarcasm oh really? then he nodded his heavy weight head and i said no and shook my head and pointed to the exit again and told him to back up. He reluctantly gave in and reversed his car and went out the right way. as he drove by me on the main road he showed me his favorite finger again and yelled out to me "i almost ran you over." at first i didn't believe my ears but dave the mexican quiroz confirmed the mans comment. and i under my breath said and i would have had your ass in court fucka! and then i took my break and listened to pretzel logic ...steely dan.

which reminds me last night me brems and drinkall all went out and i bought another steely dan cd - Can't Buy A Thrill . which i recomend to everyone.

yo this is Joe i g2g but only fo a mo...ment I'll conclude the last few days later.
