Like "Cloverfield," only really lame



Ben, Michael and I had a gig in Ohio this weekend. It went really great. On the way to the airport in Houston, Ben mentioned that he thought he might have a toll tag somewhere in his car. I decided to document the search for said toll tag, using my handy Flip video camera.

Most of the video is just me making bad jokes and Ben and Michael pretending like I'm funny. The camera work is extremely poor and very shaky. The sound is inconsistent and bad. Oh, and the video isn't very interesting or funny. But there is the drama and tension of wondering what horrors and mysteries we might find in the atrociously unkempt bowels of Ben's SUV.

So, enjoy. But only if you're really bored.

Maybe he was doing a highly classified Discman comparison research project. The sock was to gag anyone daring enough to get in his way, the pencils were to dictate his findings in the journals unless things took a wrong turn and then he would just play the Clarckson CD while stabbing himself in the throat as you mentioned with the scissors.

But not after brushing his teeth first.

Half expected a fourth Discman...slightly let down. The "skoker breath" comment about the 58 was pretty funny, man - don't sell yourself short on that.

In the RK (aka Monte Hall) Road Trip Extravaganza Pool I had my money on "2 umbrellas & Papa Roach." I did pretty well.

robert--
wow. quite a conspiracy theory you've got there. impressive. unfortunately the truth is much simpler: Ben is a slob.

romack--
you expected a FOURTH discman? wow, i thought three was kind of a big deal, but obviously i'm just one of those dopes who has only one, no wait, zero discmans in my car.

lauri--
there is a Ross King Road Trip Extravaganza Pool, but it's an actual swimming pool, and it's located in the rear section of my limo. Ironically, Papa Roach installed it. That's his dayjob.

Ross-
How could you? The truth of the matter is, most of that stuff isn't mine! It's from people who use me because my car can fit people AND stuff. They normally do a good job getting the people out (except for that one time, and I'm not ready to talk about that yet) but their stuff just stays back there. The discmans, scissors, cups, pencils, forks, spoons, knives, mugs, mics, medicine, socks, CDs, flyers, umbrellas, tupperware, paper, journals (except the mead one), toothpaste, DVDs, were mine. I'll take credit for those, but everything else... crap. I need help.

the funny thing is, i lived with ben for four years, and i could have told you 95% of the stuff in that car, and where it would have been located, three years ago. that 4runner is like a time capsule, we need to bury it and come back in 50 years.
