She Will Fun You Up

She Will Fun You Up

After watching baby beanie limp out of another buckeye game I headed up Mason to the Flying Kick Dojo to watch Cindy teach a kettlebell class. After the class we went to eat at Hot Wok with Master Derajani and his family.

radiohead live

I don’t know if anybody will catch this in time – but radiohead is webcasting their concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl here. This is about as close as I’ll ever get to seeing them live I guess – since the LA tickets sell out before my browser can even “search” ticketmaster for tickets when they go on sale and scalped tickets go for thousands.

This whole T-Bone thing just got interesting. side note: his ads have run a lot in SoCal – but I have no idea if the rest of the country has seen them….

what is important

yawwwn, can we talk about how great Michael Phelps is some more, please? ps- I’m being sarcastic. You’d think it would be pretty big news that the last two elections were carried out with machines that are now being admitted by the manufacturer to have eliminated votes. No biggie though – the bigwigs (who are also donors to the last Bush campaign) at the company aren’t concerned with it being an issue in the next election. Look the other way…

Downtown on a Saturday night

Downtown on a Saturday night

Saturday morning after leaving the gym I passed the Canoga Park camera supply store on my way to the bank.

So, I dipped into the store and picked one up. I didn’t really have plans for the night (although I would later turn down invitations to go to a…

that circle on the far left is the new Santa Monica Pier ferris wheel. I went to the beach at night last August and it was very cold and windy. Last night it was actually much more pleasant.

This photo is funny for two reasons. #1 it looks like Paul Gosol is actually helping the Celtics win #2 Gosol is losing a championship again (playing for Spain) in the olympics… and I won’t even touch his involvement in this mess because we all know that the Lakers have zero asian fans.

My high school classmates will decide the election

My high school classmates will decide the election

oh dear… Yesterday on a CNN election special the host brought up a map of the US and zoomed in on “small towns in SouthEast Ohio.” He drew a 50 mile circumference circle around what was basically the area I was raised in and said “this area, made up of predominantly middle-class to lower class working people, – mostly white – will determine the next election.” It was obvious to center in on a “heartland of America” type of place,…

metro killer

metro killer

by the way, Aaron, this was the metro crash I was describing for you guys as we drove down the 5 freeway a week ago. I originally blogged about it that day here. I would later date a girl whose sister worked at the Costco right there set up as an emergency triage station when it happened. A little while after that I dated a girl who was actually a member of Alvarez’s court appointed defense team and gave me…
