I am a Los Angeles-based twentysomething. I have a profession, and I have a secret life in music, and this blog isn't about any of that. I like Blogger because I can't read what you're thinking.

CAN I SIGH NOW?
I don't know what to write about today. It's just one of those days. Perhaps I could tell you that I think due to my month+ of bowling is destroying my right shoulder. That's okay by me as long as I destroy my shoulder ...having FUN.
Or I could tell you about one of my students who just discovered Criss Angel. Pedro is 9-years-old.
PEDRO: TEACHER, HAVE YOU SEEN CRISS ANGEL...Fuck Criss Angel.
HUGO: Not in real life, but I've seen his show before [thinking, "I'd also like to add he is a paramount tool of our generation," but that'd only ruin the moment]
PEDRO: WELL I SEEN HIS SHOW AND IT WAS CRAZZYYYYY... he floated man...he floated...
HUGO: [cracks knuckles] Pedro, have you ever heard of David Copperfied?
HUGO: Okay. David Copperfield is a famous magician who walked through the Great Wall of China.
PEDRO: What's that.
HUGO: [explains what the Great Wall is]
HUGO: Yeah, and when I was just about your age, I saw him live. He flew all across the theatre, and then into a glass box! There was no wire!
HUGO: And, ONE TIME--JUST THIS ONE TIME--David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty ...disappear.
PEDRO: [wide eyed, completely stunned]
We need more Copperfield CBS specials. Those were glorious. Have them all on a series of VHS tapes. *lightbulb* YOUTUBE SEARCH!
Just watch the first minute of this one -- it's hard to tell whether you're watching a magic trick or a thoroughly produced softcore porno:
I CANNOT believe I found this trick -- I was going to mention it earlier, but now I can simply just fuckin' SHOW IT, man. It is the definition of cheesy:
Lastly, said Statue of Liberty trick. The music is so incredibly epic.
I can't believe it's taken me this long to YouTube Copperfield clips.
