I was only a few fans behind the 1st person in line when the line started to move. The 1st person was Melisa. I handed her the jacket and told her thank you so much for the great show the month before. She was so gentle and friendly and signed my superman and wrote a large “A” on the top of his head. Next would be James, I handed him the Alf doll he looked at it confessed and said ‘you want me to sign this?” I told him, that it was for him he gave me an awkward thanks and went to sign the Superman. Jimmy gave me an enthusiastic hello, as I gave him the cat in the hat, hat he put it right on. It was the most uplifting thing after the little bit of awkwardness with James. I will never forget that moment with Jimmy. When it came to Billy, he was having an interview with the local radio station, my first thought was ‘how rude that the radio station would butt in when they were there for fans’. But I almost immediately understood that there time was limited and this is still a job. I didn’t want to interrupt the interview so I handed Billy the Superman Bust expecting him to sign his name on the S as there wasn’t much room left, but he turned it around and signed the back of his neck. I then placed the tape down in front of him and quickly said, that my friend and I made this video. He smiled politely and then I followed the line down the stairs and out the door. I left the store kind of unsure of what just happen.

I believe it was a contest held when the Super Bowl was in SF and you had to try and dive and make a sensational catch on the inflatable thing and they took pitchers of each contestants attempt. Monte clearly botched it and didn't even have his eyes on the ball when he tried to catch it.

was that Monty personal IT support website link that's been bouncing around here really THAT Monty? That joint is pretty funny, ain't gonna lie. What professional would go to that website and come away thinking "I'd like to retain this person's IT services"?

Monte carries cash. Monte looks out for those around him — woman, friend, stranger. Monte can cook eggs. Monte can always find something good to watch on television. Monte makes things — a rock wall, a table, the tuition money. Monte rebuilds — engines, watches, fortunes. He passes along expertise, one man to the next. Know-how survives him. This is immortality. Monte can speak to dogs. Monte fantasizes that kung fu lives deep inside him somewhere. Monte knows how to sneak a look at a nice package and doesn't care if he gets busted once in a while. Monte is mediocre at his job. It doesn't matter what his job is, because if Monte doesn't like his job, he gets a new one.

Monte can look you up and down and figure some things out. Before you say a word, he makes you. From your suitcase, from your watch, from your posture. Monte infers.

Monte owns up. Monte grasps his mistakes. He lays claim to who he is, and what he was.

Some mistakes, though, he lets pass if no one notices. Like stealing SP bootlegs.

Monte doesn't point out that he did the dishes.

Monte knows how to bust balls.

Monte welcomes the coming of age. It frees him. It allows him to assume the upper hand and teaches him when to step aside.

Monte does not rely on rationalizations or explanations.

Monte gets the door. Without thinking.

Monte stops traffic when he must.

Monte resists formulations, questions belief, embraces ambiguity without making a fetish out of it.

Monte knows his tools and how to use them — just the ones he needs. Knows which monitor is for what, how to find the stud, when to use galvanized nails.

Monte knows how to lose an afternoon. Dancing on camera, driving his Miata aimlessly, planning dates.

Monte knows how to lose a month, also.

Monte is comfortable being alone. Loves being alone, actually.

Monte understands the basic mechanics of the planet. Or he can close one eye, look up at the sun, and tell you what time of day it is. Or where north is. He can tell you where you might find something to eat or where the fish run. He understands electricity or the internal-combustion engine, the mechanics of flight or how to figure a pitcher's ERA. He is confused about population statistics.

Monte does not know everything. He doesn't try. He likes what other men know.

Monte can tell you he was wrong. That he did wrong. That he planned to. He can tell you when he is lost. He can apologize, even if sometimes it's just to put an end to the bickering.

Monte does not wither at the thought of dancing. But it is generally to be avoided.

Monte watches. Sometimes he goes and sits at an auction knowing he won't spend a dime, witnessing the temptation and the maneuvering of others. Sometimes he stands on the street corner watching the children. This is not about quietude so much as collection. It is not about meditation so much as considering. Monte refracts his vision and gains acuity. This serves him in every way. No one taught him this — to be quiet, to cipher, to watch. In this way, in these moments, Monte is like a zoo animal: both captive and free. You cannot take your eyes off Monte when he is like that. You shouldn't. The hell if you know what he is thinking, who he is, or what he will do next.

I first met Monte at The Edge in Palo Alto just before the RTP tour. I was first in line for tix, he showed up 2nd. Dressed in the Zero outfit, he introduced himself and asked if I would like a bootleg copy of Machina. Things got caught up so much that day he and Candy Potter ended up spending the night at my place the evening before the show.

What was amazing was that towards the end of that show, the whole crowd started chanting "Jonathon!!! Jonathon!!! Jonathon!!!" in an attempt to get him on stage with the band. lol. Billy had no idea what the fuck was going. It was hilarious.

Its like 55 here
MonteLDS says (9:35 AM):
which is who knows in C
Andrew says (9:36 AM):
yea i dont know what 55 is
MonteLDS says (9:36 AM):
It Would be very very hot to u if in C
this is actually the scariest part for me
12 C or 55F is not a very hot temperature.. it's not even warm
which means he thought that 55C would be like, 200C or something, and since 200 is a big number ----> very very hot..
