Happy Birthday James!

James Marshall Hendrix that is.. If you don't know, his birthday is November 27, 1942. In recognition of his awesomeness [yes, I said awesomeness and no its not a word, but yes I can say what I want, it's my blog], watch this video of two arts coming together with the help of David Garibaldi. A beautiful piece I say.

More painting fun, minus the music and bald guy. It gets a bit creepy towards the middle, but don't worry, nothing to fear.

What cup? .. Oh yeah, Apple Cup. Zzzzz...

It's that time of the year again, when Washington's two rival schools go at it. Winner gets... .. ..Second-to-Last Place trophy? Wow, we suck bad. Washington State goes into the cup with a miraculous record of 1-10, while Washington somehow comes up with a killer 0-10 record. Oh, wait, thats Loss-Games played. silly me. Again, We suck, and by we I mean the state of Washington. Lucky for everyone else, the game will be Televised for EVERYONES viewing pleasure on FOX @ 3pm Eastern this coming Saturday.

What genius thought "Oh haaiiii, instead of replaying House or Family Guy episodes, let's make history and televise the Apple Cup NAAAAATIONALLY!!!! that way everyone knows how much of a joke our station is!"

Yeah I should be more considerate for my two home teams, especially my Cougs. But 1-10?! and 0-10?! C'mon guys, give us something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Oh well, one good thing has come out of this sour apple..

Cheerleaders :)

Late night craving..

Step your game up AT&T and bring the Blackberry Storm to my hands! So far I've heard there are a few glitches, but that's like anything new to us, like Windows Vista, Apple iPhone, cloning animals, Dane Cook and/or Carlos Mencia [Carlos has WAY MORE than a few glitches], muffin tops, asian gangsters, japanese tattoos on white people, and THE ECONOMY [rawr!].

more good news you say?
mmm, how about a new trailer for J.J. Abram's Star Trek. I was never a fan of Star Trek, but for some reason this one is kinda exciting for me. Maybe because Sylar of Heroes is in it [I enjoy Heroes], or maybe Harold [John Cho] is in it also, and I am expecting some sort of silly antics of him and Kumar smoking marijuana, and a cheetah comes into scene with Neil Patrick Harris riding on a unicorn. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

this SHOULD be the new trailer

Good Morning Losers.

Im trying here.. still trying

Recently I went to the Rockband Live Tour at the Everett Event Center. I was fortunate enough to have a "date" with me so I wouldn't enjoy the music just by myself. Overall, it was pretty good but then again I don't have very much to compare it to since I rarely go to concerts and/or shows because of the lack of money. The tour featured Panic at the Disco, Plain White T's, The Cab, and the one and only DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL who was friggin awesome.
the opening..

I feel like I've fallin back into a slumber again, like I did during the beggining of the year. I think it's because of not using my time efficiently and slacking off here and there. Also it seems like there are a lot of problems around me, but the problems don't directly affect me, but just bring down my momentum. I don't have much of a routine going on since work is very flex, so I need to push myself to get things back on track. One way is getting back into shape. I used to use make time to workout at least 4-5 times a week, and now its like 2 times a week if that. The great thing about my the type of workouts that I do is that I can literally do them just about anywhere, just as long as I have some equipment. Other than access to the mini-gym located here in the apartment courtyard, my access to a gym does not neccessarily work with my schedule.So I think I'll either somehow make use of the mini-gym or else workout in the courtyard (maybe that'll get some spectators to wonder what im doing, and get them to check out the gym I TRY and go to). ALSO, I seriously need to get my cardio back up to par so hopefully make some time to go running.

On a more happier note, its SNOWBOARDING SEASON! And so far I see myself going to Whistler, B.C. at least twice this season hopefully. I just bought some new boots and a new board, so along with my one-season-old bindings I shall be pushing the envelope even more now. Hopefully I can start this November. Join Me!

Halloween just past. That was pretty fun. Kinda waited till the last moment to put my costume together. Pictures to come soon, once I upload from my camera. There was a costume contest going on and I think it was set up. First of all, the “theme” was “dead celebrities,” but the only contest I saw that was held.. guess which “dead celebrities” won? .. .. . no idea? .. .. .. how about MONKEY AND BANANA! Don’t know which celebrity they are? Yeaaahh me either. Me and 3 (maybe 4 if Joe could have fit a onesie) friends dressed up like babies and I felt like we had a good shot at this. We also (no pun intended) rolled up with a sushi! A home made sushi! She at least got some of the crowds cheers. All good tho, the monkey and banana are our friends, and I got a free t-shirt and a $40 tab :)
