I would like to ask David Lynch to stop making the movie of my life

eamajyn sings like an angel. That was the good thing about tonight. Wow. I would go back to hear her again, only.

Aside from that. Well, I would like to tell everyone now that Totally Coffee in Costa Mesa, CA was built on an Indian Burial Ground. I was still just pulling into the parking lot when I was threatened by some insane woman who deliberately walked behind my car and yelled DON’T RUN INTO ME I’LL FUCKING KICK YOUR ASS! And that was the whole feeling of the place.

The crowd there scares me. It’s a mix of Gamer Geek (plus-size ladies with long straight hair and scifi t-shirts, men in inappropriate fedoras with black jackets) and Drugged-Out Loser types. The nice people I saw there tonight I already knew. Good to see lyn23 and miss_geek whom I don’t often see. But wow, the other people there just oozed depression, failure, brokenness, and spite. It felt like the saddest of the high school geeks growing old together and hating each other.

eamajyn really sang beautifully. Like all musicians she hated her performance. Shush, you.

As for the other crap that went down tonight: vegemitelover and bruisedhips are my friends for life, and I know that more than ever tonight. There’s nothing like shared trauma to make you know who you love, and who loves you. When someone threatens and abuses the ones I love, it reminds me again how much I treasure them. Be happy, friends, whatever that happiness is.

And, to the other party involved: when a party of drug-addled loser teenagers, subculture stereotypes, and dorky band camp kids says to me after you leave “What. A. Lo. Ser.” it means you’re not on the right path in life. Think about it, rageboy.

  1. Which one was Totally Coffee, again? I think Java Jungle was the one on PCH where I saw the HB skinheads throwing chairs at one another, so that’s out. Is it on main, just off of PCH? Or is it the one waaay up on Beach? Or is it the on on Warner at Beach in the otherwise office-y complex? Or am I completely mistaken? It has been a great many years since I was seen hanging out in HB coffee joints.
    Wait…re-reading…you said Costa Mesa? I must be completely spin ’round. Well, anyway, all I know is that I am going to try to get down to Java Juice this weekend–combination coffee shop, juice bar. It could be interesting. It could be scary.

    1. Funny Thing but Enigma knows the guy behind the Bar at Totally Coffee… Tis Booga…
      I have spent more then a few mispent nights at the center many many years ago.

  2. thank you so much. that means a lot to me.
    also you should hang out inside while the open mic is going. I don’t hang out on the patio for a very good reason.

      1. Hey maybe we did learn something! I think it’s plausible that all our etiquette derives from successful hooting and displaying solutions. In all honesty, I think that humanity won one here. Congratulations!
