Tune In This Thursday ...

Tune in to blogtv for the very first episode of NOT The Steve Gee Show, an online chat show where you'll meet me and my kids and my pets and maybe even my wife if she doesn't kill me. It's free, it's audio, video, and it's a one time peek into my life and my head.

It's a one time thing now, an extension of my 840+ posts blog here, and if its a success then maybe it might become a regular thing.

So be sure to see NOT the Steve Gee Show this thursday at 10pm eastern, 7pm my time.

Please come see. It should be fun. If you need any more convincing to see my show, here's some free mp3s for your punk ass ...

The Beatles: The Things We Said Today

Frank Sibatra: The Way You Look Tonight

Ween: I'll Miss You

Nina Simone: I Think It's Gonna Rain Today

John Lennon: You Are Here

The Raconteurs: Five On The Five

Soundgarden: Black Hole Sun

Eels: To Lick Your Boots

Top 5 Artists With The Most Songs On My iPod ...

5) Ween (26)

4) Green Day/Foxboro Hot Tubs (27)

3) The Beatles (29)

2) Frank Sinatra (30)

1) Eels (58)

And there's the standings in Steve's ever-changing iPod. Frank Sinatra comes out of nowhere to stop the rising Beatles. Ween drops a few spots and Eels loses a few songs but still keep their commanding lead. Does Frank have what it takes to finally overtake the music of Eels?

I'm happy about Sinatra's sudden presence in my top five. I'm all about old blue eyes right now. I think its because I've been wearing ties and hats to work. There's something about putting on nice pants and shiny black shoes and wearing expensive cologne and dressing all smart and professional that just brings out the Rat Pack in me. Fuck, I'd start drinking martinis if I wasn't sober.

I'm taking a new pill. I don't remember the name of it but it's usually used to calm down seizure victims when they feel like they're having an attack. I'm taking it on top of my generic Paxil to calm me down so I can stop my panic attacks and dizzy spells and moody super daddy freak outs. On any given day, I take about five different pills, not at the same time though because I don't want to Heath Ledger myself.

I've been sober from beer and alcohol for 55 days now. But now I have pill hangovers.

I'm going though a lot of shit but I'm pretty sure you don't have to worry about me.

I'm thinking of starting my own online tv show, maybe sometime this week.

But would anyone watch?

Comment if you're interested in watching my show.

Pokemon or Perscription Medication?

It's a very simple game. I thought it up for the kids at storytime. All you have to do is guess if the words listed below are either a Pokemon character (randomly taken from ALL the Pokemon games, including the new Shinnoh region) or a prescription medication randomly taken from The Pill Book.

This game is surprisingly challenging and was designed for ONE REASON, to show twentysomething and thirtysomething hipsters who ONCE thought they knew Pokemon that they NOW know JACK.

The answers are posted on the comments. Good luck, people!

1) Abilify

2) Ledian

3) Corsola

4) Porygon-Z

5) Orlistat

6) Kineret

7) Illumise

8) Diovan

9) Minirin

10) Espeon

11) Deoxys

12) Lunatone

13) Cacnea

14) Dyazide

15) Altabax

16) Munchlax

17) Gliscor

18) Meridan

19) Dustox

20) Stimate

21) Impetigo

22) Sopranox

23) Cellcept

24) Pikachu

25) Viagra

A Steve Alone, Update ...

Natasha was going to leave with the kids tomorrow night for a number of days, five to be exact. But our van is having screaming shit fits, so we have to shell out a pretty penny to fix it. So that means my wife can't afford to go to the wedding in Arizona, which means I don't have to be home alone.

I'm excited about this. That means I don't have to be home alone. I've been going though a lot and I'm starting new medication, so being alone for a long stretch of time probably isn't good. Plus that means that my kids can campaign for Ms. Know-It-All during this Saturdays big Captain Book-less storytime.

The negative part is that my five day plan to lounge around the house naked while eating ice cream, dancing nude to party songs on my iPod, playing my PS2 and porning it up is now totally ruined by my wonderful and yet easily scarred children.

Oh well. Give and take, you know?

A Steve Alone ...

I just learned that my wife and two daughters are going to be leaving for a wedding out of state in five days. They're leaving on the 25th and coming back on the 30th. And since I'm working, and since i have a very important Captain Book-less Captain Book storytime to do, I will be home alone for five days. No wife, no kids, just me, alone.

I don't know if I can do it. I don't know what I'm gonna do. I probably don't look it, but I'm a bit fragile right now. Being alone worries me.

Oh, and PS, I finished my alpha yesterday morning before i had to go to work. So yay me.

Steve's Alpha by Song Vacation, Update ...

Day Eight, Last Day, 9:59 pm.

Currently on song 967 of 995: You Don't Love Me by The Kooks.

I stay up a little bit later than usual tonight, wake up a little bit earlier than usual tomorrow morning, I SHOULD be able to do this thing before I have to overwork tomorrow. When we went to Dimple and Walmart and I had the earbuds in my ears with my wife and kids, well I must have looked like the worst husband and father in the world. But I said that I was going to do it and do it I shall.

On an unrelated note, this is my 836th post on this blog. 836 damn posts. How crazy is that? My blog is as old as my oldest daughter and SHE just graduated first grade. My blog is going into second grade. That's incredible.

Anyways, wish me luck. This should be a piece of cake.

Steve's Alpha by Song Vacation, Update ...

Day Eight, Last Day, 10:53 am.

Currently on song 756 of 995: Social by Squirtgun.

I'm no math expert but I believe that leaves 239 songs for me to hear before I go back to work tomorrow. I'm fairly confident I can do it, just as long as I staple the iPod to my damn ears.

This is also day 45 of my sobriety, by the way. Tough for me not to drink. I'm making up for it though by drinking enough coffee to kill a small hyrax.

Might go to Dimple and buy some used cds. Might go see The Hulk today. Might go skating with the fam tonight. We'll see.

Top 5 Artists With The Most Songs on My iPod ...

5) The Raconteurs (19)

4) The Beatles (25)

3) Green Day/Foxboro Hot Tubs (29)

2) Ween (35)

1) Eels (63)

There's the standings in Steve's iPod. Green Day jumps up to the top 5, thanks to their secret band The Foxboro Hot Tubs and Ween shortens the distance between themselves and Eels. Can Ween's musical madness take over the musical beauty of Eels?

I've been trying to listen to my iPod in alphabetical order during my vacation. I started at 8:00pm last wednesday as I walked out from work and I've been listening on and off since then. I have 995 songs packed in there that add up to about two full days worth of music. I started with Abarájame by Illya Kuryaki & The Valderramas and I'm currently on song 571, No One Knows by Queens of the Stone Age. I have to go back to work friday morning, which means that I'll be hard pressed to finish this off before then so I plan on having my iPod strapped to my head nonstop from now until then.

Wish me luck.

Our New Cat ...

We got a new cat. Cute tiny little baby cat, about two months old. Sweetest thing in the whole damn world.

I didn't particularly want ANOTHER animal in here, but it IS cute as hell.

And since the rule is that I get to name any animal that comes into this family, I would like to introduce our new cat, Legendary TV Anchorman Ron Burgundy!

He joins our ferret Brak and our dogs Peanut Butter Jelly Time and Johanna (because at the time Emerald couldn't pronounce Sweeney Todd).

I've got a shitload of pictures from our all day trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, but maybe later. Until then, here's some free music for your punk ass. I'm feeling very sad and lonely and melancholy, so here's some sad mellow music ...

Vince Guaraldi: Great Pumpkin Waltz

Frank Sinatra: Mood Indigo

Frank Sinatra: In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning

Elliott Smith: Pictures of Me

Bedouin Soundclash: One Way

Ween: I'll Miss You

Various Random Whatnots ...

It's summer. That means that Emerald and Deinna (my wife's brother's daughter next door and my unofficial third daughter) are now out of school. My wife has been spending the last few weeks at home with the kids, ALL the kids, and she's been going a little bit stir crazy being home alone with three screaming kids. So we've been scratching our brains trying to think of things to do with our kids.

We went to the gym the other day. It was probably the first time I've worked out since before the holidays. But apparently i overdid it because the next morning my whole body hurt in screaming pain. Serious pain. It's been a week and I'm still in pain. I'm taking painkillers just to numb the pain in my arms and chest and legs. For a while there it would hurt just to hold up a cup of coffee, let alone pick up the kids or anything like that.

The kids are currently watching Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It's the first time that I've seen this one. But it's the fourth time in three days that the kids have seen it. That's crazy. I think they have a new favorite movie. I'm just proud that it's a Burton film. PLUS last night they watched Jackie Chan's Rumble in the Bronx and they fucking loved it! My kids are totally awesome.

Also, Kung Fu Panda was funny as hell.

After today I'm on vacation for eight days. I wanted to go somewhere and do something, maybe a fun vacation or a road trip somewhere. But Natasha's leaving today, coming back on saturday night, staying for a few days, and then leaving AGAIN until I go back to work. So it will be be. Computerless. With the kids. Plus Natasha didn't really clean while she was gone, so it will be me alone and lonely with the kids cleaning up our hideous house. I'm not looking forward to it.

I've been sober for 37 days. My wife being gone for my vacation is going to be rough as fuck. I'm a bit scared. but I hope I'll be okay.

My wife's birthday is this monday.

For my wife's birthday, I made a 9 minute movie version of her life story with our kids and the laptop.

It's one of the greatest things I have ever done in my life.

Check it out. It's pretty damn amazing ...

Well, that's it. Wind clan out, y'all!

Various Galindo Family Pictures ...

This is how Elmo dolls are packaged and sent to us, with its legs bound and its eyes blindfolded. I can't help but see it as some sort of bondage thing. It's pretty creepy.

This was my view during my intensive dental work of the past few months. It's been digitally altered to better match my actual view while they drilled the crap out of my mouth.

Isabela with Wall-E.

On my last day off my wife and I recycled the incredible amount of beer bottles and cans that has been piling up in our kitchen for the past, oh, I would say year. I always want to simply throw them out but my wife makes me save them so that we can "recycle" them despite the fact that she never would. So back when I was at my hard drinking apex I would just put them on the pile with the others. But I have been clean and sober for a whole month now, so the time felt right.

We had 408 bottles and cans and got a whopping $20.15 for our drinking days. Wow. In California that's enought for maybe a half a gallon of gas.


Emerald VS Isabela

in a Target swordfight two the death!


And the WINNER is ...
