- The next time the NCAA does the right thing will be the second.
We all know a lot about this country is wrong, I haven’t shifted my stance on a lot about this country being right, just letting you know I think a lot of things are wrong as well. I focus more on systems, rather than people, and a lot of the systems we have in place [...]
- Q: Who are you guys shooting for?
A: The Times. All of them. Ice Cube’s new film “First Sunday” is shooting on my street. Incidentally, according to IMDB, I moved to Baltimore, MD. Baltimore is a gorgeous city on the shore of the Pacific… oh wait, that’s Long Beach. Anyway, Ice Cube rolled into town and is making some comedy about a [...]
- JT/JFK Day (AKA Memorial Day).
As we have another 3 day weekend full of sunshine and barbecues to celebrate the persons who have died fighting for the country we call home, some people want to talk about politics and what is wrong with this country. I simply present the stories of 2 men whose lives have had an impact on [...]
- Brady Quinn Fans Are Violent.
Tonight Kyle and I ventured to the center of Los Angeles, a place some call downtown, for Kat’s birthday party. It was a lovely time, and I offended people by playing Kelly Clarkson and Dashboard Confessional. I was the designated driver, because Kyle was the designated drinker of Newcastle Brown Ale, so I took the [...]
- The Perfect Girl.
Blog Groupies take note… the perfect girl has been summed up in video form. The key moments to focus on are the shrug at the end, the boots, and the lower lip bite. Okay it’s mostly the lower lip bite.
- Drunk Drivers don’t want to be drunk.
It’s true, they just want to have one beer and be on their way. That damn peer pressure and all that cool ambiance in the bar though, it’s like they want you to stay and keep drinking. These kind of lawsuits must come from that group of archaic minded individuals that still think; it’s a [...]
- The President does better stand up than Dane Cook.
As we close in on the birthday of the finest Presidential orator ever, another Presidential “orator” makes it so obvious how much times are changing. “W” is in tune with the blogosphere… George W. Bush “Information is moving — you know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it’s also moving through the blogosphere [...]
- Not My Governor?
This weekend when I was over at Hollywood Park my Father made a comment about our Governor. I believe his words did not include “terrible” or “worthless”, and I don’t have the exact quote but I believe he said “terrific” at some point. My Grandmother and I just looked at each other in disbelief. My [...]
A few weeks back I found the perfect bike. It’s gorgeous, it’s designed, it has front disc brakes (no idea why I would need that), it has no chain, it’s $1200.00. Now that’s a lot for a bike, but this bike HAS NO CHAIN!!! I got over the $1200.00 bike when I realised I would [...]
- I was happy with not knowing.
Kyle has just informed me… … Scrubs is back for Season 7.
- The Running Of The Ponies.
Hollywood Park opened for it’s spring meet a few weeks back, and Saturday I supported the just-outside-of-Hollywood-community Inglewood. I have no idea why it’s “Hollywood” Park, all of Hollywood waits for Del Mar. There were a few wardrobe delays getting to the track, but once all was overcome an absolutely wonderful time was had on [...]
- This Is What Living Like This Does.
Jordan Percy decided to grace the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area with his presence last evening. We decided on t-shirts and suit jackets, already had reservations for 4 (where was our 4th the whole night anyway?) at Rambutan, had finally convinced Kyle that this Target listed in LA nightlife on multiple internet locations, is this [...]
- Automobile Invasion.
Last night at what I will presume was 3:27AM (because that’s when the alarm on somebody else’s car was going off out on the street, which both woke me up and annoyed me when it wouldn’t stop) my vehicle was broken into. When I walked up to the car and saw all kinds of things [...]
- The Downtown Experience.
If you have ever wondered what it’s like where I work, this picture pretty much sums it all up… … that’s just a block over from my building. Optimus stops by the neighborhood at least once a week to eat at this killer Chinese place called New Moon just across from my building.
- The Evolution Of The Internets.
So many of my friends and enemies who follow my weblog may, like me, appreciate good design. I like the world well designed, I like architecture, I like form and function, I like thought before action. It is with that in mind that I’m giving you a little taste of why I have that link [...]
- I’m Voting For AC.
Albert Clifford Slater was simply legendary; from his star rise on “The Bell,” to his showing up at my HS’s prom, and don’t you dare say “SBTB, The College Years” or “Dancing With The Stars” can tarnish his status. If anything, it makes this all the more fabulous. SBTB was an absolute crutch to my [...]
- AiPsId (Is What My Dock Now Says).
Today marked the acquisition of Adobe’s Creative Suite 3 after several weeks of waiting. This is the part in the blog where most people lose interest in me geeking out on design applications. This is however, not their blog.
- Mountains of Green and Burnt (Childhood Dreams)
This Sunday I drove down to San Diego to thank my Mother for doing the following things in my life; birthing me, stopping my sister from feeding me scrambled eggs when I was only a few days old, killing the rooster that tried to make me blind, turning off “The Wizard of Oz” (on audio [...]
- Urban Hiking
So not many of you know about the elite sport of urban hiking. Last night (with no Sherpa to guide us mind you) Kyle, Danielle and myself conquered Mt. Biscuit Co. Lofts. It was a hard climb, but the infamous V2 vodka found on its first peak (read: balcony 1 of 4) made it a [...]
- California’s Burning, Burning (Again)
Few may know the “City of Angels” has the largest “urban” park in the United States, but that honour is due to Griffith Park. Full of golf courses, the zoo, the observatory, greek theatre and plenty of open trails, Griffith Park really is a shocking accent on this city. For now the park (and hopefully [...]
- Shutting down the city.
So as all my fellow Angels know, the Downtown area I work in was taken over by protesting persons. These people were utilising their free speech by making it so I couldn’t go to the office. The protesters want rights for immigrants; those here already, and those to come in the future. These same people [...]
