Cheese Friday: Wisconsin needs more problems.

Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle. Shown here waving to Brett Favre.

Wisconsin governor vows to keep Wisconsin no. 1 for cheese

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -
California cheese is becoming a campaign issue in Wisconsin.
The governor of that state says he'll do everything in his power if he wins re-election to keep Wisconsin number one in cheese production. Governor Jim Doyle says he'll increase state incentives to help cheese plants upgrade and train their workers.

He's also vowing that Wisconsin won't take a backseat to California as long as he's governor.
The campaign promise from the Wisconsin governor comes as California officials expect to eventually pass Wisconsin in cheese production. Wisconsin produced 2.4 billion pounds of cheese last year, which is more than a quarter of the national total. California was slightly behind.

Maybe I should move to Wisconsin. If Cheese production is a campaign issue then they must not have many problems.

I don't know why he's fighting it though. The great state of California will take over eventually. We always do. If you struggle, it only hurts more. (This phrase works great on the ladies.)

WWJD?: What Would Joo Do, bro?

So, I'm going to the bathroom (I mean going TO the bathroom, not you
know... poopin' as I type) and as I open the door I can tell that there
is a dude in the stall (it's a one-staller). He comes out of the stall
and leaves (no handy washy) when I enter the stall it looks like i
caught him in his office. There is an Arrowhead water bottle (cap off,
half full) a copy of Skateborder magazine on the floor and the old
throne has NOT been floosh'd. Awesome.

I guess the trip to the potty was this guy's first 'break' all day.

So I ask you dear reader, should I have chased the guy down and said
something? Or do we agree that other people's bathroom protocols
(however weird) are their own business?

Have ever eaten or drank a beverage while in the can? Wait a sec, mebbe
I don't want to know.

Needless to say, I ain't shaking hands with any new people I meet

Ok, so I don't usually tell people to stay home and watch TV but this is different.

First off, the dudes from American Movie...
Second, my buddy Colby is working on the show.

Few people are really up on the supernatural history of the greater Milwaukee area, I myself had to refer to my copy of Tobin's Spirit Guide for details and they were few and far betwixt. If you don't have a copy then that's all the more reason to join Mark and Mike on G4 Halloween night at 8E (which is 5 Pacific).

Besides, when was the last time anyone ever said, "Live From Wisconsin"? Set the Tivo kids.

Happy Birthday Mike Judge

Andy: Birthday

Happy Birthday Andy...

Hi Andy this is TV personality David "The Hoff" Hasslehoff with a special birthday wish for you.
Andy, I wish I weren't so darn busy right now. If had some free time then we'd go play some Gauntlet™ down at Nickels O'Fun the new video arcade down at the mall. I like to play as the Valkyrie because I like to feel pretty and pretend to have breastesses. But enough about me, what about you? Oh yeah, this isn't a chat room and you can't answer me, (stupid Hoff stupid stupid).
As you may have guessed, I'm back in the 'special hospital' again, it's time for my semi-annual pain killer addiction to flare up for a week or so.

Hey do you remember that time on Miami Vice where Sonny lost his memory and was a bad guy for like half a season? Man, was that weird or what? I wish they'd done stuff like that on my show, I never got to be the evil lifeguard... ah well, regrets are ten a penny at the drive-thru, as the old song goes.

Well, I'd better go now. Merry Xmas in case I forget, or Quonset if'n you're of a Hebrew persuasion.

And just like that... you're home.

Orange Alerts notwithstanding, I am back in Orange County.
The flight was rough and the movies were rougher.
I paid five bucks for cheese crackers and vacuum sealed salami - what
has happened to flying?
Anyway, back to work tomorrow and pretend none of this ever happened.

CIRSF: Epilogue

All over now except the crying.

Since Sunday Nels and I have been performing the most unglamorous part of the film fest process. Returning tables, packing up equipment, and answering e-mails from filmmakers who just don't get it.

Some of the prints got picked up by their owners.
Mute, by Melissa Joan Hart (yes, Sabrina the Teenage Witch) is playing at a fest in Fort Lauderdale next week, so we dropped it off at the Post Office personally.

The sun is going down and the forecast is for heavy rain (last night it was a cloudburst I couldn't believe it) and we are rolling west towards the expressway that will take us to O'Hare, and take me home to California.
