Dude,

Turn in that M-16 for a cane, baby! Time for an orthopedic tutu.

It's too late to die young.......

Happy Birthday!

OH Man!


Yes 30 years old today. I am shooting a film in the Bahamas. I could not bring my m-16 so no shots fired after beers :angry: Thanks Jim for telling me I am too old to die young now ouch!!!! Yes Geoff, next beers are on you and we can shoot at my neighbors with the bb guns. I hope to see you guys at the next steadicam guild meeting or local bar. Hey Ron, that H1 would be a killer 30th B day gift, hook a brutha up!

Attempting to ameliorate the sting of my previous words I present here the entire song lyric I quoted from, specifically for its wisdom in how to deal:

"We used to say I don't care if I never grow old
I'm gonna flame, gonna burn, take one quick turn and be gone like James Dean
Now we don't say that. It's too late to die young
So we sit at the table long after supper with a good wine
Here's what we sing, we go, hey hey, hey hey, who woulda thunk it
Hey hey, hey hey, who woulda thunk it"

Indeed.

Wine's on me next time. bro'. Enjoy the Bahamas!

BJ!
dude, happy b-day -- I thought you were much younger! If I had known you were old like the rest of us I may have treated you with a bit more respect. And sorry, no hummer for you (my teeth don't come out).

Damn!!


I have to say that is a pretty funny reply Ron. It made my gnarly day of shooting a bit lighter. This show is brutal! Rain, wind, boats, crazy chics, and crabs in the street. I guess it is better than crabs in the pants. I will see you homies when I get back to LA. Can't wait to get home.
