… and there’s reason to believe… Maybe this year will be better… than the last.

Yep, that’s right, folks, 2007 is coming to an end. Has it been a good year or a bad year? Meh. There’s been a lot of ups and downs and a lot of unexpected announcements and movements going on here and there. I’ll probably say something to this in the coming days.

In return for your patience as to the above, I give you first this bit of disappointing news: Danny Haren has been traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks, along with Connor Robertson (Minor League reliever), for 6 players. The crowd that will be shuffling to the Bay Area shall include 3 left-handed pitchers (Brett Anderson, Dana Eveland, Greg Smith) along with infielder Chris Carter and outfielders Aaron Cunningham and Carlos Gonzalez. While this is a bit disheartening to lose an ace/the American League starting pitcher to the 2007 All-Star Game/bedrock to your starting roto, ya gotta respect the man they call Billy Beane and his ability to rebuild/recreate each new year’s team. Don’t you worry, they’ll be OK.

Something cool, you say? The new Batman movie “The Dark Knight” that they’ve been shooting in Chicago all summer long now has a new trailer that came out at 10:30-11 p.m.-ish tonight:

Awesome? Hellz yeah! Tons of shots from spots less than 4 blocks from our apartment. The new Joker (Heath Ledger) looks NOTHING like him in real life due to all the makeup. Pretty bad-ass, too:

Check out the other pages for the upcoming film, also:

If you saw it earlier, here’s a pic I got of filming along the Chicago River:

In other news, I’ve secured a movable object with wheels to whisk me away to the cornfield state over the weekend before xmas into the 25th, on which date I need to have said whip back to the O’Hare impound by 4 p.m. That means work on the morning of the 26th. WHEEEEEEEEEE! It will be good to see some W’loo peeps, however.

THEN, to top all toppers, we’re hittin’ Hogs N’ Honeys for NYE. No joke. Really. Not. Kidding.

Hogs and Honeys NYE

Someone send help. Seriously.

Artistic Ability, I Do Not Possess…

… yet, my friend Julie highly possesses and has perfected to produce amazing and vivid pieces. This past weekend I was endowed with an amazing piece of work:

I’ll Become the Sea

She named it “I’ll Become The Sea”, after some of my favorite (translated) lyrics from La Mer by Nine Inch Nails. This painting is so much more in terms of talent and vibrant output than anyone I’ve ever known was possible of providing. I gotta say that I’m so honored to have this on my wall. So cool! Love ya, Jules! Thanks so much!

Julie’s working on getting this work up on her website currently, but you can see her other art over here:
