That's the business!

The funniest video i've seen in a while. Beats the witchdoctor promo from adult swim which is just below it...

the best wedding ever...

On September 13th, 2008 we attended the best wedding ever... ever... no really, ever.

Every single detail was well thought out.

Here's what made it special...

First off, the venue was amazing - village estate in yountville.

At wedding rehearsal the bridal party each got an iPod Shuffle with our initials on the back and the wedding date! Plus... One of my favorite beers: Tsingtao.

The place was huge. My team was hired to film so we had to create a tight gameplan and a nicely wrapped gift. Okay, we were the ones who planned that part... I just wanted a reason to put our notes/map on here.

The bridal suite used to be a spa. It was SO nice. I should've taken pictures of the upscale pedicure/sink seating area. However, this was one of my highlights... We watched SOUL TRAIN on the big screen while getting ready!

Dinner was on point! Gourmet everything, the photos tell it all...



The taco truck came at 12 midnight and stayed til 1am. THAT was the knock! Unlimited free tacos!

Ya know... Dancing and drinking can make your stomach growl! They know us all to well...

Roger and Elaine, you are my heroes.

boomin on bart...

i was at the macarthur train station a few months back and something very unique. first off, i heard loud ass music with lots of bass. i looked around and saw a man on a bike with a bookshelf radio system attached to his handle bars!

we went through the same entrance onto the train. i took a picture for your enjoyment...

its cool to be different, but follow your gut.

this was gross.

this made up for the meal.

tommy your moded!

we had an extra desktop pc laying around (i sold it to tommy). 

i pulled up to the parking area of his street and called to let him know i was there. he says, "cool! i'll be right out, i guess i should bring a bag." i hung up the phone and thought to myself... "wait. he's gonna carry this desktop tower and flat screen monitor in a bag? maybe he meant a roller bag!"

tommy walked out with a smile on his face proudly showing off his snoopy bag (which was approximately 12 x 12 inches big)... i opened the trunk and he goes, "oh! for some reason i didn't think it would be that big!" we both burst out laughing! he called a friend to come out and help carry it. however, the mouse and keyboard did fit inside. (just not everything else!)

grab the muni stub or pay.

it was my second time in the station, how was i supposed to know? actually i kept really calm and collected, for some reason i wanted to laugh. we got stopped to show our ticket at the church & market station. i stated my case and the woman was nice about it, she apologized for giving the ticket and explained how to protest it. $50 penalty!! i think not... sent in my protest today... you'll notice that i chose to white out my address, birthday and driver's license info for obvious reasons.

Denver, August '08

I was invited to appraise a collection of 3,000+ records that was everything from classical to rock to soundtracks and jazz.  I wasn't sure of what to expect but I took a chance since I'd always wanted to travel to that city. I was there for 3 days. I wish that I could have stayed longer. 
The outcome:
*The records were okay. I'd rate the collection a 7 out of 10 considering condition and selection
*I have 70+ great records (from 60s/70s rock. Moog music. nostalgic soundtracks) to consign
*I met Ben Summer at Twist & Shout, an easy going, european buyer with mad record knowledge
*I came back with more $ in my pocket than when I left the San Francisco Bay Area

aka... It was a good trip!

Trip Highlight...
On the last day of my trip I took about 200 records to sell at Independent Records East Colfax. I was there solo carrying records back and forth from the car into the record store. I'm parked out front and Randy (see pic below) walks up with a cigarette hanging out of the side of his mouth and says, "You selling those"...I say, "Yes, you interested in taking a look?" He offers to carry the records into the records into the store, places the records onto the buy counter and proceeds to pick out things of interest. Meanwhile, I'm thinking to myself how amazing this is that I'm slanging records out the car, then in the record store, right next to the buyer... Finally, Randy has 30 records in his hand and the buyer is ready for me. The way it works is they view the records overnight and call the next day or so for an offer. I left 150 records behind. The record store buyer points to Randy's picks and says, "Are you selling those to us too?"... I say, "No not anymore... Thanks! (with a grin on my face)." Randy paid me out in cash for his stack.
