    What to do in 55 hours

    Thanks to jonathan for holding down the fort while i took a little vacation/birthday trip to New York with my sister. Its still for me one of the funnest places for me to go to for any occasion, but i do realize that living there would be a whole other story. With six cameras between both of us, we arrived in New York at midnight for the first trip i ever took with my sister, and i knew it was going to be great because i don’t have to be responsible when she’s around, i get to be stupid little brother. Amazingly in those two short days i have just…

    Know where you’re from

    Another year passes but some things never change. Every time i hang out with my old neighborhood it always reminds me how lucky i was to grow up with them. They never fail to not dissappoint, and Brian’s 35th birthday was one to remember. One word says it all, midget, not only a midget, an elvis impersonating, fire juggling midget. My sense of decency kept roaring through my head, but i thought forget it, lets have some fun.

    I need a vacation

    This week was literally one long day that never ended.  I think i’ve slept a total of 20 hours since Sunday, and gone to sleep twice when people in the eastcoast were just waking up.  This coming month doesn’t look like its going to ease up either.  I have to say that i’ve learned more about flash in the past six days than i’ve learned for the past five years.  It feels really good when you start to really break down a program and really understand how it works from the ground up. Its amazing to think how incredibly small our company is, we’re still able to get some very…

    Thats how we do it

    If you haven’t heard there is a coup happening in Thailand right now.  So what do you do when you see a tank driving down the the capital of the city?  Thats right you decorate it with flowers and ribbons.  Amazing how things still had to come to this these days but people in power, never want to give it up. I’m going to call this the most peaceful and celebrated coup in history.  Watch out Bush, i’m gassing up my tank now!

    Rise Above, or Tuned Out?

    So the question came up at the Rise Above show does Shepard Fairey actually care about what’s happening in the world or is he creating his art purely for self gain?  Personally i haven’t kept up with world events for the past month or so.  I just can’t seem to get into it, and i personally haven’t really cared.  I’ve been just too wrapped up with The business, the art show, and just trying to enjoy life at the same time.  Worrying about something happening outside of West LA is just something i’ve put on the back burner, and my brain just seems to tune out anything that has to…

    I’ll take it as a complement, … i guess

    We decided that gay guys night out to watch Last Kiss together was a bad idea, so we went to McCabe’s Bar over on Santa Monica/25th street for some beer and pool instead.  We stroll to the bar and order a couple beers, to where the bartender asks for our IDs.  Looks at jonathan, then mine, and she goes, “Wow, i would not have guessed it, i thought you were coming here for you 21st birthday.”  Great, for some reasons i know everyone else in this world would take it as a compement, but for me its like the peanut joke, it just gets old.

    Repent or Rejoice, its your own life

    If you write down your goals, you’re more likely to accomplish them. Even though some of my goals are very far out of my reach, its good to make some hard to get to so that you always have to challenge yourself. This is just the start of my list, and hopefully i’ll reach 100. You just can’t forget that these are just privileges, and you and I don’t deserve to do any of these things. Don’t forget to enjoy what you have or else nothing in this world is going to make you happy. If you always think that there will be something better around the corner, be careful…

    Work Artgallery Presents Bi-Polar

    Thanks to all that showed up, and especially to those of you that submitted work to the show. This show was incredible, and so much more impressive than the first show. Some very impressive pieces were made by Shane, Luke, and Janelle. Shane’s Alpha and the Omega constructed with wood and the always impressive plexy glass. Luke’s X2 painting trully showed off his ability to work within the them of love and hate, and Janelle’s Bunny Suicide even made death seem cute. The music was being DJ’d by DJ Beezer, and the alcohol flowed all night long. Good times were had by all. I hope that more people will show…
