Zuma's New Blogspot: MAYOR SAM Leaving L.A.? ZD Beat You To It, Y'all...Hooooody Hooooooooo!



Aw HELL YEAH! It's temporary, but I hope to extend it as long as possible. Which will probably be exactly until it gets freezing cold. But some folks could get lucky and I could stay here a year. (Well see. I REALLY have NO idea!)

Someone was shockingly correct, and has some mighty good sources, themselves. However, I do have a new phone line, and that one may not be tapped, yet. [Some of it is jibber-jabber...but this was a message to ZD, fo sho. And they were right with the premise.]

Anonymous said...I'm a Third Cousin, Thrice Removed, from the said Gentleeman, my Beloved Cousin David, of the Shannons of Nordern IREland. I say IREland on purpose now, because everyone has some IRE, don't we, lads? Or else we'd not have come to this God FORSAKEN country, just because we didn't have enough tators. What kinder nonsense is that? But now, our BELOVED COUSIN David, thinks he's BLACK IRISH IN A LITERAL SENSE, which is NOT TRUE. He do'nt have a SPOT of black blood in'em, and so, DAVID, come home to us, your family. Never mind these Rodericks, I always told yer that clan was NO GOOD 'tal. September 15, 2007 3:31 AM

I was on a plane the day after that, I think. And although I kinda have to be here, for now, whether I want to, or not (cause of mi familia) -- how long I decide to stay here truly remains to be seen. As some of you may know, from this past week's worth of blogging, the geographic relocation has not diminished my disdain for what is happening in that biohazard-karma filled building on Spring Street. (Viagraosa and LA Shitty Council.)

But here is what might keep me here in Cleveland, my hometown: ZD's NEW blog spot...




FREE WI-FI, Y'ALL!!! I'm living like a king. It's the GOOD LIFE, I could have had, if I wasn't who I am, but the way everyone else I ever met WISHES I could be.

But, Cleveland was never exciting enough for me. I always kinda need to be in a City the size of NYC or LA to be comfortable.

But today, I saw some deer running down my street. (Too much development, even here, obviously.) I saw a lady riding a horse, in the distance. And five minutes the other direction are all the new malls, shopping centers and fantastic restaurants. (Cleveland, for some reason has tons of fine dining?) And everyone is so happy I am here, for however long...everyone wants to TAKE me to those fine restaurants. (Yeah, yeah!) And Genesis is here tomorrow. And everything is so close and easy for the most part.

Trees, parks, grass...the weather is great, and trust me -- that makes ALL the difference to ZD...so talk to me when the temperature drops below 30 degrees.

So now that the cat is out of the bag, maybe I'll do some filming at the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame. (ZD was kicked out exactly six years ago this month. Time to return to the scene of the crime for Mayor Sam readers.)

I used to HATE coming back to Cleveland. I would get miserably depressed being here. (Visiting from NYC, LA, Houston, DC.) And I know, I wouldn't be able to be happy here now, if it wasn't for the past year and a half I just spent in Los Angeles, immersed in the community -- meeting all the new people I have met in that time (and the emails and cell phone conversations remain the same).

And I like the three hour time difference, cause when I'm up at 11pm/12m/1a, I can still talk to everyone in LA! And I can blog until 12noon, and it's only 9am in LA!

So Sam, all I can say, is I hope the weather stays nice for a while. YEAH, it's killin' me that Garshady & Company, and Villaraigosa & Cahootans, and all those crybaby political operatives will be poppin' champagne corks -- and sliding all the shady stuff on the agenda...but I think this balance I have finally achieved will help me come back to LA -- WAY BETTER. In a month? A year? Who knows...maybe never?

But don't get to happy. You think I'm walking away from the ZD "fame zone"? Hell Naw! I DO miss LA and DO wanna return soon. Just not as soon as I thought.

P.S. I really do miss everyone inside those council chambers. Just kidding! The only person I wanna give a shout-out to is Officer Morris -- and maaaaaaaaaaaybe Dion O'Connell. The rest of you: Huh...huh...huh..I don't know WHO would be happier if we were lucky enough to never see each other again. But unfortunatley, I think we were put in each other's lives to torture each other. But if we're both good -- and try to change our karma like Bill Murray in Groundhog's Day...maybe the dream can come true for both of us! (But knowing you shady f*cks, you'll probably end up pissing me off and sending me back on plane, waaaaaaay too soon.)

Good afternoon Zuma lad (tips hat):

Godspeed lad. Give the pirates in Solon a shout out from Captain Jack Sparrow. (Whispers) Because there is more to life than Juicy Juice, savvy?

Ever see the movie Stranger Than Paradise, the Jim Jarmusch black and white classic? His three characters go from New York to Cleveland to Miami and discover that -- it all looks the same, even Miami can look like Cleveland in winter if that's the mindset you bring to it. Or Cleveland can be like anywhere else. It's what in a person's head that counts. I'd stay where my head is on straight.

SOLON: Possible EMERGENCY KARAOKE there TONIGHT at the "glow in the dark" bowling/sports bar plaza.

They have the discs and equipt, but no one to run it...so they may have ZD come by to run the gig.

If that doesn't go down, Winking Lizard on Saturday, if they still have it.

Solon pirate?!?! Very intruiging. That's ZD territory. Try the Mustard Seed.

By the way, if ANYTHING put me in the best of spirits, besides this morning's waterfall wi-fi, it was seeing Springsteen this morning on the Today Show. Cleveland was his first big market outside his tri-state hometown area. He's coming here in November, so I'll probably stay here till then just for that.

Lil' ZD had FRONT, F-ING ROW TICKETS (directly under Bruce) in High School. And everyone else who is a fan must be feeling a little better today, if they caught it.

But for me, especially cause Badlands was always my favorite song, since '78, but I never really knew what it meant until my stumbling into City Hall, recently.

So to hear him say he writes his songs with a personal AND political message...IT REALLY CONFIRMED WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT BADLANDS. So check those lyrics out online...but if you missed it...here's one he did from his new album coming out tuesday. And it's political as hell. And it's his classic sound. And I've been listening to this song all day...:
check it out here

1:50pm,

You may be my biggest hater, or not...but you are sooooo right. Eventually, it'll run out...and then I MUST return. But I've never wanted to EXTEND my stay before. So that's a good sign.

Get back here pronto. When the dirty snow gets black and all the people are cranky and mean because it's freezing, it's no longer rutting season and the deer aren't running around, you see the political shadiness there where Jan Perry is from, you'll want to come running back home.

Big drop in homicides in L.A.

Watch the gang banging cholo mayor try to take credit for this. His little butt had NOTHING to do with homicides going down but rumor is HE'S DESPERATE for anything that might shed positive light and he's asking everyone inside city hall to tell him of projects they're doing and any press conf.

SOMEONE NEEDS TO KICK HIS BUTT AND MAKE A MAN OUT OF HIM.

L A Times Opinion points to the fifty million donated to Antonio's schools as proof he'd have gotten this and more earlier if the old Board hadn't been more intent on fighting him, and using Janivs' court to help them. I gotta agree, though you can't give him credit for anything.

But as for Cleveland: Denis Kucinich started his career there as Mayor in the 70's and bankrupted it over some dispute with the utilities companies. You don't have to be in L A to have that battle. What do people remember about him there -- pride or shame?

Capt. Jack,

I know you(s) are no dummy(ies). So why would you tip me off? Only thing I can think of is that you are observing the observers?

How long did it take Zuma to hitchhike his way to Clevland? How long will it take him to hithhike is way back? Or maybe the hollering hobo will hitch a ride of a train?

Yes, the front page story in today's California section of the times is that Jeff has been fired. About time!!!!

At transportation committee meetings you could hear her arrogance when she talked. Why did the Mayor insist on using affirmative action to fill positions instead of qualifications? She was a disaster in Michigan she was a disaster here.

The Mayor's staff needs to look at people beyond their racial and gender classification.

Today's LAntonios times gave us a head count of African Americans the Mayor has hired. We don't need to know this he should hire the best person for the job.

Everyone thought that the Mayor was going to hire an all latino staff, but he has been busy trying to prove Hahn wrong on his supposed treatment of African Americans.

I hope the new GM does a better job. Well at least she doesn't have to be told were the Valley is located.
