Happy Birthday to Us

Monday, October 16th, 2006

We’re one year old just about now (although our first shows were at the beginning of this year), and it’s been a great time with hopefully plenty more to come (knock on wood).

We celebrated on Friday the 13th with a rad t-shirt exchange party — look what a good time Uncle Rob was having!

And legal guardian Enriquez sent this out to sum it all up:

Dear Family & Friends,

Can you believe it is already “Living La Vida Logo” Day?  I swear, where does the time go?  I can’t believe it has already been another year.  Well, in true Revolver Family fashion, I am once again sending our the annual Revolver Family Newsletter.  I think it is important for us to remember the spirit of “Living La Vida Logo” Day and not get all caught up in the commercialism.

Well, let me say that the Revolver Family has been busy this year.  As you all know being a single father these days is not easy, especially with the rowdy bunch I have (just kidding :) .  Where to start?  Well we are pleased as punch to announce that Farrell has made first string of his Rugby team in school.  Can you believe he is going into his senior year of high school?  It just seems like last year, he was taking his first step.  Well, not to be out down by her older brother, Leah has taken up the cello.  She practices everyday just like a pro.  Her teacher says she has the talent of a female Yo Yo Mah.  I am not sure who that is, but is sounds impressive (just kidding :) .

Oh my gosh, before I forget, I am happy to announce that the twins, Len and Jorin, have started their own ska band.  After a very long argument over the name, they finally settled on the name, Hold the Mayo.  I know the name sounds silly, but it is a giant leap forward from their original name,  The Skas the Limit.  They are scheduled to play at the Bartlesville Street Fair this weekend.  Please stop by if you have a chance.  They are playing from 3:47 PM to 3:56 PM.  Bring your ear plugs (just kidding :)

Well, it hasn’t just been a year of ups, the Revolver family has had their share of downs :(    It appears Vanessa found her court ordered rehab a lot tougher than she thought.  She last only 29 minutes before she walked out.  I know some day she will get her life together, but what can a parent do.  Also, Rob appears to be a proud father . . . again.  He claims this one is legitimate, unlike the other three, who he still claims are just three crazy women trying to get a portion of his Lotto winnings.  It is good to finally see Rob stepping up a taking some responsibility.

But let’s get back to the good news.  Our own little Mike Carr has gotten hired by Disney World.  The details are still a little vague, but it appears he might have a walk on part for the upcoming Disney Flick, Herbie Fully Loaded II.  I hope he remembers to thanks us during his Oscar speech (just kidding:).

We have had two new additions this year.  As you know I can’t stand to sit idle for even a second.  So what did this crazy guy go and do?  Yes, that is right, I am now a foster parent.  Right now we have added to our family, a couple of trouble youths.  The first one is Ryan.  Ryan comes to us from the inner city.  He is a little rough around the edges.  It is impressive how he is able to use the “F” word as a noun, verb and adjective all in the same sentence.  The other trouble teen is named George.  To be perfectly honest, George scares the bejeezus out of all of us.  He doesn’t seem to say much, but he definitely has a stare that will go right through you.  His only hobby to date is setting small fires in Church.

Okay, I better get back to the “Living La Vida Logo” festivities.  The whole clan will be home today celebrating this glorious holiday.  I just hope it doesn’t get out of control and the cops aren’t called (just kidding :) .

So Family and Friends, please have a great “Logo” day and remember to keep in touch.

New Feature

I just added a new page under The Hot Ifomaction on the side there — pictures taken from my Treo 600. I’ll hopefully update it every couple of days with stuff I run across and can poorly photograph with the static aperture on the back of my phone …

check it out!

Gun Play

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

After a rehearsal for the Movie at iO this weekend, in which I wound up playing a Bonnie & Clyde/Natural Born Killers-style rampaging psychopath-in-love character, I was thinking about the old trope in improv about how drawing a gun in a scene is a bad idea. And whereas I generally agree, I think it’s one of those things where it’s how you handle it … but it does make you have to be sharp, for sure. Let’s talk about it?
