Orange Street Festival!

Today we went to the City of Orange for their street festival. There was a ton of food! They had all kinds of food stands from different countries around the world. It was pretty amazing. We ate some Gyro's, Funnel cakes, BBQ sandwiches, Teriyaki beef skewers, Egg rolls, and God knows what else. It was a good time!

Went to Old Mans' Beach today surfing. It was great! I got up on a few waves but didn't ride too long. It's been a while since I've been out and I wasn't working out the month I was in MN. As you all know though there is only one way to do things and that is to get the hell out there and get it done! This picture is actually taken from on Camp Pendleton. I went with Shawn who is a Marine so we got to park easier on the base. We were surfing out there where the two palm trees are in the picture. Right in front of the Nuclear Plant. It was a cool spot. People chill out there and camp. I think that would be so much fun to just go there for a weekend and just surf!

The end of today couldn't come fast enough... I feel like I need one of these bottles of JD to ease my mind tonight. I don't have one... but if I did it would help! It was a hell of a day at the studio. It was just a cluster fuck. Between the client and the agency it was so frustrating. I'm glad we get monday off but we still have to shoot more models next week....

Getting a Place!

I think I found a place! Right in San Clemente with a view of the ocean from the roof! Its a pretty sweet place! I don't have any pictures yet but I will soon! I'm staying with my buddy Shawn until the room is available. It is a really nice gesture! --- Revised--- I just added this picture! It's from Shawns roof towards the ocean. It's out there! Its too bright to show up out there but its there! This is the same view I will have from next door when I get into the new place!

And the Search Begins....

So it's finally back to work on Monday morning! It was great to get back! I got right back into the groove of things. I just need to find a place to live now! My friend Shawn who lives in San Clemente is trying to hook me up with a place next door to him. That would be great! Can't wait to get out of hotels!

California Here I Come!

So I fly out the afternoon after the wedding! It was a little short! I wish I could've stayed longer but it is off to work monday morning! I don't even have a place to stay! Gotta figure that out quick!

This is Alex and Amber after the wedding! It was a good ceremony! Pretty funny since Alex tried to put the ring on backwards and Amber tried to put it on the wrong hand! I hope my wedding (if I ever get married!) is just as funny! I was honored and privileged to stand for my buddy. We had a ton of fun!

MN State Fair!

This was a busy day! So here is a video of the big slide at the State Fair! My niece is going down in front of me on the left! Then the picture of Cheese Curds because they rule and people in the OC have no clue what real ones look like! The photo strip was of Jack and I. This was his first trip into the photo booth! I stole him from Michelle and made it in there before she could.. Haha! 
Then after the fair I met up with some old friends from High School Abby, Annie, and Kelly. Then after that! I was with Sarah and we went over to Netty's house for her pond party! She built this totally elaborate turtle pond in her back yard. It was great to see everyone before I had to leave! Too bad she lost a turtle a couple days later!!! Oh No!

After the rehearsal we headed over to Alex's parents house for some Famous Dave's BBQ and drinking! Obviously Amber and Alex were having a good time after a few drinks!

Twins Game at Home!

My travel buddy Jeff and I went to a Twins game vs. Oakland. Yeah we didn't win. But that is the second Twins game I have been to this season. I want to hit up the game when we play the Angels out in Anaheim. I'll be back in Cali next week so I have a good chance of making it!

To buy alcohol in this area on a sunday you have to drive all the way out to Wisconsin! Sarah and I went and visited my buddy Andy and met his new girlfriend Wendy. She's a nice girl! I hope he finds what he is looking for.

Tokio Hotel at Myth

iEnt Inc
This is a German band that came to Myth today. My buddy Jeff works for a promotional company, O Productions, and asked me to shoot the show while I am in town. It was fun to get back to shooting a concert and seeing all my friends at Myth! Not that I miss doing that on a daily basis but there is this energy at a concert that just surrounds you and can totally engulf you. It is an experience that I have found to be a commonality between genres and a link to humanity. When something so different as these are; Pat Benetar, Dj Skribbles, Korn, and Coldplay, you just have to think that this energy is almost a lifeforce of its own. It is incredible to watch people pour out their heart and soul out on stage for everyone to enjoy. It can be so vulnerable and so strong at the same time. The contradiction reminds me of my everyday life.

Lost Pictures...

This is a picture I lost in my catastrophic encounter with an older memory card reader. So I was out and going to try out the new restaurant Flame Grill in Rosedale mall and figured I would shoot this picture again. It was going to end up on my blog at an earlier date but later is better than never!

800 Miles!

So I woke up today in Arkansas. It was an extremely long drive! It took us around 14 hours to make it but we did! I can tell you that there isn't much to do in the car for 14 hours. So I made this video. I thought you might all enjoy it!

All I have to say is absolutely AMAZING!!! This meal here was a Half rack of Ribs and Beef Brisket, Fried Corn on the Cobb, and Baked Beans.... Mmmmmmm..... This is what BBQ is all about! I can't wait to get another plate tomorrow! We also stopped by the Jim Beam distillery today and tomorrow we are going to Jack Daniels! Sweet!

She better hold on for the ride, welcome to the family!

I made it out alive...

So in Ohio there is an Shawnee Indian Reservation that has a cave underneath it. This place reminded me of the Devil's Rejects. The first guy we saw had long hair and a beard to match that looked like he hadn't combed it or cut it in 10 years. They had a little community of trailers that most of them lived in and they made a living touring the caves below and throwing rock concerts on their back lawn. They also had a ceremony grounds in back that I didn't want to see. It was definitely a bunch of eccentric people. But all in all the cave was interesting and we made it out alive! Lets see what the rest of the day has to offer!

Mickey's Diner!

I finaly ate at the Diner! I tried to make it out there the last time I was in town but I couldn't make it. So I went out there last night! It was pretty good food! I had a toasted cheese with bacon and a bowl of chili! It was a little much to be eating so late but I couldn't stop! Now I leave for my road trip to Ohio tomorrow with my parents to go to my cousins wedding! Should be a good time! It may be hard for me to post though! I'll try my best!

Found it!

I met another Playmate on Friday, Kayla Collins, at a party thrown by my fiends Taylortainment at Envy nightclub downtown Minneapolis. 

Saturday, August 2, 2008


Today I went and hung out with the fam! We had a great dinner and played some games. It was really good to see them. It has been a while. My cousin made me this really awesome Root Beer Float! Later on that night my buddy Aaron has a band called Hate Beast. They had a show at the Rock, a nightclub by my house, and this picture of him is as he was playing the last song jumped out into the crowd and finished the guitar solo! It was a great day altogether!

Terrible loss of images!

It was only one night of my life that I had lost but there were some pictures that go down in the record books. Well at least from what I am imagining in my head they could've been. I know there were two images that were blog material! No good! So on that down note. I am going to post this video of the bike tricks I watched in Huntington Beach last weekend because I am watching the X Games and I should be there!
