This might be worth invading Iran. Bring our bottled brothers home!

Dear Marketing Geniuses,

Recently, I have been wanting to try the new 64 calorie Miller Genuine Draft Light. The beer company has succeeded in persuading me in their numerous TV spots shown mostly during sporting events. The SNAFU is that I can not find this item in the store! What's up with that?!? I'm ready to purchase. Do I need to live in a larger market than Lost Angeles? I keep going to major grocery stores and other chains that sell beer, but alas none such luck finding said product. Note to marketing geniuses: if you're going to advertise, please make sure the shelves are stocked in the your marketing area, so we minions can suckle from the corporate tit (pronounced teed) that is your delicious low calorie beverage.

The Golf Hustler: Moore Park Country Club

Had a swingin' good time at an industry tournament at Moore Park Country Club. It's 27 holes of scenic beauty, although currently only 18 are open. The course boasts great practice facilities, a luxurious clubhouse, topnotch staff and banquette services, the perfect place for an organized event or an outing with clients and friends. Come join Moore Park's elite, if you don't mind driving an hour north from metro Lost Angeles. Also, if you're a fan of the show Weeds, the surrounding neighborhoods will remind you of Agrestic.

Mean Streets

In his sophomore effort, Mean Streets, Martin Scorsese constructs what could be considered a prequel to Goodfellas (Casino being the sequel). In Mean Streets we see a young Robert De Niro and Harvey Kitel honing their acting chops to perfect the ultimate unstable streetwise gangster-in-training. The movie is complete with signature Scorsese visuals and soundtrack. It’s definitely worth seeing if you are a fan of Marty’s and Co’s work.

Leisure Woman recently took me to see Chaz Palminteri's one man show, A Bronx Tale. It was really great. We were whisked away to a world just north of Manhattan over 40 years ago and introduced to the characters that shaped the young man's life then named, Calogero Lorenzo Palminteri. Sadly, the run ended Sept 21, so if you wanted to see it... fuhgetaboutit! Maybe rent the movie, directed by and starring Robert Di Nero.

Leisure thy name is Duffy

There is a new word in my vocabulary. That word is Duffy. Question: How teed can one get on a Duffy? Answer: Very. Invite 2-12 of your closest friends for a leisurely cruise, depending on how big your Duffy is. One can rent this electrical nautical wonder in Newport Bay, Newport Beach, CA from $75 hour. It is so choice. Leisure Girl and I rented one this weekend.


We could sell this at Bar Mitzvah. They currently sell He'Brew Beer by The Shmaltz Brewing Co at Whole Foods.


Certain things have come to light recently in regards to a certain upcoming proposition vote. Call it the "Not Get Unteed Bill", which will outlaw drinking in public parks and beaches in beautiful San Diego County. This pic is evidence for those for not getting not unteed in said picture perfect Southern California havens.
We as a society have certain duty as to not get so unreasonably teed as so to harm the environment or fellow tees around us. Whether it's taking a cab when your too teed to drive or recycling your beverage receptacles, please please be responsibiliteed.

The Teed Blog, Episode 3: The Margarator

Bought 2 at JC Penny today on sale for 99.99 each (business expense). The Margarator holds 1 gallon of frozen margarita or other slushy beverage of your choice. It's recently been put to the test at a work gathering (yes, Leisureman has a job). Here's what I like about it: it provides 1 gallon of frozen libation on tap. Here's what I don't like about it: it's noisy and it takes a while to get slushy. Bottom line, save your money and plan on using the blender a lot.

The Dowd Abides

A real treat, today's KCRW's guest DJ is none other than the real life character known as "The Dude" from the Cohen Brothers cult classic movie entitled, The Big Lebowski. Jeff Dowd was podcasted today on, a killer radio station too. Guess which one is The Dowd or His Royal Dowdness, if you're not into the whole brevity thing. Word around town is that my main man Pony worked with him recently (Pony not pictured). Apparently, Jeff's very Dude-like.

The Teed Blog, Episode 2: The Mission (Cantina)

Stumbly, bumbly, I walked into The Mission Catina. What? It was Tuesday. Designed to resemble an historic Spanish Chapel, this sacred bar has about 100 different tequilas. My goodness! I got the house Margarita (rocks, salt) and attitude from the bar tenders when I slurred to them my idea for Bar Mitzvah. "It's already been done," one of them said. Has it?

The Teed Blog, Episode 1: The Well

This is the beginning of a series of teed entries, places where you can get teed, places that are teed, and just being teed in general. It starts at the The Well in Hollywood. Equidistant from the gig and the crib. The perfect place to stumble home from after a long happy hour (5-9pm thank you very much).
Here's what I love about The Well: said Happy Hour where well drinks are $3 (Jim Beam is in the well) and knowing the bar tenders by first name and they know mine (rare for HelLA). They have great bar food too. Here's what I don't love about The Well: Nothing.

Deep Water

Screened Deep Water last night. A documentary about an ordinary Englishman's (Donald Crowhurst) race through the ocean and against time. He struggles to make his family proud, honor his commitments and survive for months at sea. It is the late sixties. The media and technology are new and exciting things that also play a part in the journey. I can think of a few friends that would like this movie instantly (A-Dub, CB). Also there's actual self made audio and video footage of Crowhurst and other racers on their boats.
