I'm Ok

The earthquake in Chino Hills was a 5.8! I felt it. I'm safe and ok!

Been busy!

A few friends and I went out to check out the OC Fair! We all had a great time! The shock for me was there is only one stand that has Cheese curds! I had to ask information. What is that about! After all the craziness at the fair we didn't get enough so we headed over to the US Open in Surfing on Huntington Beach! This party was ragin! Just check the shots I put up here. There was a ton of skin, sports, and fun to be indulged in! Now Kevin and I are off to go see Dark Knight! The last time we tried to go see it there was a line around the block! Hopefully better luck today!

Moving day!

This is my little storage unit with almost all of my stuff. I have a few boxes I have to add. We had to get the truck back so we took everything that I had and that wouldn't fit in the car. It doesn't look like much. I like being a minimalist. There is no reason to own much more than essentials. Live free.

Made the Headlines.

Front page. 60,000 lbs of roasted meat and cheese... Gross. I'm just glad I only got caught in 7 miles vs the 20 it ended up to be!

Longest traffic jam I have been in...

I went 7 miles in 4 hours today. This Truck had an accident with another car that is torched behind it on the hill. It stopped traffic headed south through Camp Pendleton. It was brutal. I was calling everyone I knew, texting people, and I even put my car in park and walked around it once just to stretch. So much for being on time to work... I showed up and they sent me to go get lunch. Back in the car I went....

Pizza Uno!

I got to eat Pizza Uno today!!! I ran an errand down to Escondido and picked this up for lunch! If you have never heard of it, this is a chain out of Chicago where they claim (like 10 other restaurants in Chicago) they invented Deep Dish Pizza in 1943. I don't care who invented it really but this is great pizza! If you are ever in Chicago the original spot is on Ohio and Wabash! Go!!!!

Had to.

This is a disk that a guy we were playing frisbee golf along side us found. The inscription is hilarious. I didn't do too bad today. We had to skip a few holes and leave to go pick my buddy Kevin up from the airport though!

Model Party!

What 'chu talkin 'bout Willis? My buddy Will was hanging up in San Jose and took the train down for the weekend. We hit up a party in Anaheim, hosted by a photographer I know Isaac Madera. It was a pretty good time! We played some pool on the Jaguar print felt. Then Will decided to jump in the studio and was doing acrobatics with this model. It was a pretty crazy party! Always a raging time with Will!

This is my Crunch Roll! I wasn't the biggest fan of sushi but my buddy Ben is. He brought me to this place in Costa Mesa that makes some sweet food. We tried a ton of stuff! From the Yellowtail and Ahi Tuna to the Crunch roll, the Shrimp Sushi to the seared Albacore belly with smelt eggs on the top, the Spicy Scallop roll to the Mango and Green Tea Ice Cream wrapped in Boba. Oh and I can't forget the California roll. Haha we had a feast of Sushi! Some of it I still don't have the taste for but I do like all of the cooked stuff I ate. My sister would be proud.

Going the other direction?

I hope not. You wouldn't be going very fast on this 8 lane freeway almost in gridlock. Haha. We were moving at a decent pace for a friday after work heading in the direction of the county fair. Which reminds me I should go there this weekend...

LV 2H8 U

Thats what this car's license plate said on my way home. They also have a Dave Matthews Band sticker, the fire dancer, on the back of the car so it's a little contradictory unless they have a good story. Which you better if you have a plate like this. Could you imagine going to the counter at the DMV and asking for this plate? Do you think they are going to be extra nice to you? Haha They aren't very nice in the first place! Oh how the DMV workers love their job!

"Fake Head"

So today I shot drinks. Here is a picture of Fidel blowing bubbles giving the beer head! So many of the shoots I have been on have "opened up my eyes" to inside tricks. It totally takes the fun out of it tell you the truth. Knowing and being a part of when you go to a restaurant and see the pics of the food that its un-edible. This is not good. Sometimes it can spoil the must hungry appetite. I try to not let it though. I'm skinny enough the way it is!! Sometimes though, like this glass of Stella, a shot can still make my mouth water. I'm not even a fan of Stella.... Way to go Fidel!

New Belgium Brewery.

Goal: Visit Fort Collins, Co and take a tour of this fine brewery! I was packing up some stuff today and I ran across this box. You all might know the New Belgium Brewery for its most famous beer, Fat Tire. This is an amazing seasonal that I first had on my last trip to Chicago. Anyways, my cousin lives in Fort Collins and I need to get out there and visit! Anyone want to meet me out there???

Write me a quick note.

This is a rough idea I put together. It has reference to a bigger project I'm working on. I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback. Thanks!

Lol! I can't say much for the girl that took this picture but I had to have my picture taken with the weinermobile! This is the second time I've seen it in real life. The first time we got to go inside of it. It has clouds painted on the ceiling! This time I couldn't find whoever was driving it but I got this pic!

Drunk Driving is Bad.

This is one of the car ports at my apartment complex. A drunk driver over the weekend had turned onto the on ramp of the freeway next to the complex and careened his car through the back of the building at six in the morning. It was far away from me but I saw this the next day and was completely shocked! I just can't believe how fast he must've been going or he had to have a big truck! This is a big hole!! Damn!

Interesting fact.

This is a map of all the dry counties and partially dry counties in the US. The most ironic thing, the idea that inspired me to research this, is the fact that the Jack Daniels distillery is in a dry county. There is a special addendum to the law though that lets tourists buy little souvenir bottles of the liquor. At least you can buy some then right? But you can't drink it! At least there you can't. I wonder how they deal with the people that taste the booze and make sure they have a good product.... Is that legal?

Hooters girls....

It's fun living by a Hooters and making it there on occasion. One girl was even wearing a Bloomington, MN shirt today... Anyways, we started having all the girls stop by the table to sign our napkins. There was also a 21st Birthday at the bar today so I bought her a shot of Grand Marnier. She was getting wasted. Her friends were carting her around the bar having people buy her shots. Wow. Glad I survived my 21st Birthday, barely right Mom? Well, I hope she makes it through hers ok. There are a lot more experiences to be had after you turn 21!

Independence Day

Finale at Huntington Beach! There was about 50k people at this beach! I've never seen so many people hanging out at a beach in my life! I have more pictures too of course and maybe I'll post some later but it was great. The people were awesome and it was a great time. Watch and enjoy! I wish you could've all been there with me!

Karma II

I guess when you recognize something you see it more prominently in your life. Today was the second day in a row in which I had worked the longest day at that studio. Damn. I know tomorrow will be better. I'm working at the same studio!

All I can do is laugh when I think of how easy I had it yesterday. Today I pulled a hard 12+ hour day. I just want to go to bed. Karma is a bitch.
