To Think... It's Already Been a Year...

Black's Beach Tapes

One year ago this weekend, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes flew out to San Diego to visit with Sean Lockhart and Grant Roy (they stayed at the Marriott, visited the Zoo, etc...). Little did Harlow and Joe know that their every word was being recorded while visiting Black's Beach. (and possibly elsewhere as well).

As an handjtrial anniversary special, I offer you my own personal top ten favorite quotes from the BBT's... (think David Letterman):

#10: DEA AGENT ANDREW PAPPAS: "Well last time we did it, we didn't get the recording. It doesn't hurt to hit the red one twice, right?"

#9: SEAN LOCKHART: "My stomach hurts."

#8: JOSEPH KEREKES: "Baby, remember, if you build up any speed, you're not gonna be able to stop, and you don't wanna get dirty or scratched, alright?"

#7: HARLOW CUADRA: "Well if you guys wanna take care of Cobra once and for all, I mean, I don't think there's a real hurry on it, unless he had a copy of all that paperwork at his lawyer's office, it's all gone."

#6: HARLOW CUADRA: "Umm, and ah, I said well, I saw all I needed to see, I was gonna keep one of them and give it to you as a gift. I was like, nah, it's too hot right now, let me just get rid of it, and ah, he also gave me a couple of items that are disintegrated now also. Ah, he had a Rolex, ah BCK and, and well it's gone."

#5: JOSEPH KEREKES: "Oh tell him about the brand new, he just got it in two days ago, sixty-five inch plasma TV..."

#4: HARLOW CUADRA: "Oh yea, yes, he knew who I was alright, I didn't, check this out... check this out, (inaudible) his fuckin phone rang, he goes ya know what, you remind me of something, of someone and he smiled and I was like ahhh, I don't know, I put my head down, like fuck, and then he smiled at me like ya know, I know who you fucking are, ya know what I mean, and ya know he had his hand on my dick, and ah he answers the phone and then right then ya know my dude comes around, ah hold on, and ah, he knew who the fuck I was, it was crazy, so I mean that whole thing about the escort thing, I think if the guy was (inaudible)".

#3: HARLOW CUADRA: "Yea, yea, I don't think that, honestly like thinking now, I don't think that if we all would have just sat back and you would have done it the legal way, I don't think it would have turned out the way you wanted, honestly. It sounded like they had everything lined up".

#2: JOSEPH KEREKES: "Very respectful, I mean very, I mean Barry never had to shut anybody up, and the interview went on for almost three hours, Harlow did really good, made it very entertaining, ya know, and Barry never shut him up. You know Barry's a client right?"

and Number One...

#1: HARLOW CUADRA: "Oh, no problem. Umm, actually seeing that fucker going down actually it's sick but it made me feel better inside. It almost felt like I got revenge and I know that sounds fucked up, really fucked up but I still couldn't sleep for a week, I had dark circles under my eyes, Xanax, Ambien, you name it, I was taking that shit but umm, he ya know... Like I told ya, it's all over with man, you done climbed that mountain. I know..."

So what are yours?
