I spent some time with the dear boy in NY a while back, and I still wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. (in a good way) Simon is awesome! :D

Between the victory lap around the pool with the finger in the air over the crew making the news for being launched in the air by the 3000 lb dome cover flapping in the wind during installation or Friday morning calisthenics in the kitchen, I'm torn.

I fucking love the guy and I'm very proud to call him a friend.

I you spent a weekend with Simon I suggest a good lengthy double strength flea dip and a trip to the clinic because some shots are in your near future anyhow whether you know it or not.

That is all I'm sayin' bout' that.

I actually AM crane...i am 6'5 and 155lbs.

Not a tiger...i can only be a crane.


My beak and my long legs will fuck you up, but in close quarters it doesnt fly, pun intended.


Fight me out in the open however, and although i may not win, i will not lose either.
