Old guys are fun to talk to

Having a bottle of wine with a bunch of older guys rocks.

The conversation is varied, damn interesting and fun. Had no idea that a documentary I watched a day ago would lead to a really good conversation.

"The Lost city of Z" in the Amazon was some random thing I watched a day ago and now I'm going to get a book on it from a dude who is just as fascinated by it as I am. It was amazing to watch this British guy who mapped out the Amazon looking for a spiritual world that he felt existed. I believe he found it and disappeared into it. The dude I chatted up thinks he was killed by a Amazonian tribe. We'll see...

It's not too many days you can make an older man turn beet red, but those days are pure awesome. One of the guys was having back problems and I told him to get a massage. He asked about getting a happy ending with a smirk. When I told him he could probably get one in new town but not in old town, he turned beet red and couldn't believe I knew what that was.

Saw the best documentary yesterday about the NY Times called Page One. Highly recommend.

David Carr is a total bad-ass. Journalism written through an objective lens is so lacking these days. It's all spin and crap. The NY Times is the best source in this country for real news. It's worth paying for just to support these amazing writers and investigative minds.
