Hey people,

I apologize for not writing as much as I used to but I have been swamped with work and by the time I get home I am usually worn out.

For those who used to read Bean's blog I thought I would pass along some information to you. Bean sent me an email about a week and a half ago with pictures of his house. You see there was a storm that went through Seattle with 90mph winds and heavy rain. His guest house where his KROQ studio is, and two to possibly three of his cars were damaged by falling trees. He and his Donna are ok but he didn't mention anything about his animals. I hope they are all ok as well.

At my house today we are expecting 80mph winds. There are a lot of trees by our house which kind of worries me so I am hoping all will be ok.

New Years Eve in Las Vegas isn't happening for the Wife and I as originally planned. She has been sick with the flu for nearly two weeks and is on medication which means no drinking.

My Computer Forensics course is coming along well. I am on break from the course until mid January and I am looking for possible internship at places in So Cal.

I am also working on a re-buttal song to KROQ's Dave "The King of Mexico"s - The Clipper Nations back. I have written it, I just have to do some voice sound match up and it should be gold.

I hope you all have a good New Years. I will try and post my top 5 albums of this year before the new year is out. If not take care!

I'm Baaaaaack

I have not posted in a long time. The last time I think I posted was way back before Halloween and I apologize but I have been very busy.

A while back I wrote into a sports radio show here in LA (AM570 KLAC). The afternoon show there hosted by Joe Grande, Matt Money Smith and Wayne Cook has a segment called Good Times Gauntlet where on Thursdays they allow listeners to write a trivia for them. I submitted mine back in late October / early November and it was read on the air. My prize, a hockey jersey, and hat. Awesome...I've always wanted a hockey jersey...for those who do not know, I used to play rollerblade hockey back in the days...I wish the sport got the respect it deserved. Well I was contacted yesterday and since I have waited a while for the prize to arrive, they are sending it within two days and I am also getting Kings Hockey tickets!!! My first hockey game...I can't wait.

Gnarls Barkley - Wasn't expecting yet not a surprise

She Wants Revenge - Wasn't expecting but a nice surprise

Angels and Airwaves - Got it

The Raconteurs- Got It

Snow Patrol - Got It

Evanescence- WTF?!?!?! Freakin KIIS FM reject band who no showed at the 2004 KROQ Weenie Roast...or was it 03? This band blows and is all hype...I hope they no show again and there is an awesome surprise in place of them.

KAAC update

I am 7 for 10 (nice combo) so far with the following acts confirmed for night 1 of the KROQ Acoustic Christmas:

Saosin (Pronounced SAY-OCEAN)

30 Seconds to Mars



Papa Roach

Fall Out Boy- This band fell out of no where to be playing this gig. They were booed out of Last Years Acoustic Christmas but brought back for this years? I don't get it. Hopefully Evanescence won't be the surprise guest

My Chemical Romance



Foo Fighters- I called for this band to headline night number 2. While I was still correct that they will be playing it throws me off for night number 2. It could mean that they are playing both nights one Acoustic (Night 2) and Non-Acoustic (Night 1)

Acoustic XMAS

Its that time of year again...the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. This concert is by far my favorite of the year and one of the hardest concerts to get into, yet I have been to the past 5. Some bands that have played in the past years are Korn, Nine Inch Nails, Janes Addiction, Coldplay, Fiona Apple, Velvet Revolver, Brand New and many many more...Who will play this year? The announcement has not been made yet so as I do every year I am going to make predictions....

Night 1: (Not Acoustic)

Audioslave or Tool
My Chemical Romance - Possible headliner..for sure Co-Headliner
30 Seconds to Mars - Opening band
Papa Roach

Night 2: (More Acoustic)

Foo Fighters (Acoustic Set)
Snow Patrol
OK Go!

This is just a partial guess. I have a lot of things running through my mind right now so I will post later as I cannot currently think straight

Death of a Blog

Today is the last day that Bean will write on his infamous Bean's Blog. It reminds me of the last day that KNAC was on the air here in Los Angeles. The station went off the air in 1995 and on its final day, was DJ'd by Lars and James from Metallica with the final song being Fade to Black. I clearly remember this because my cousin and I stayed home from school and taped the entire show. The ending of Bean's blog, I think will remain with its readers as the final KNAC show has stayed with me. As with the Fade to Black being the appropriate finish to KNAC, Tater-Tot walking away from the camera was the perfect way to end the blog. Kudos to a guy who didn't have to bring his personal life to us; to someone who wrote on a daily basis and if he couldn't would provide pictures in place of words. Kudos bean as we fade to black

FADE TO BLACK- Metallica

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further everyday
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost this can't be real
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

A secret crush

There was a very funny segment on the Kevin and Bean show today. What cartoon character would you bang? When I heard about that I had to call in and reveal a secret crush I have had for a long time.

My secret cartoon crush has been April O' Neil from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She was the freaky news reporter in a hot one piece yellow jumpsuit with the zipper zipped just enough down...oooooooh.....She was way hot. Hotter than any freakin news reporter out there right now...except for Lisa Joyner. And with Halloween coming up, I'm thinking about buying the wifey a yellow jumpsuit and a camera.

if you make a comment, please make a comment on those Cartoon characters you had a crush on...It will be a funny topic to look back on.

Ed Gein

Wow...245 people have viewed my profile..I think a month ago it was 37.

I promised you a story of Ed Gein and well here it is..I typed it up this morning just for you..enjoy..

Ed Gein (1906-1984) was a lonely Wisconsin farmer who lived alone and was very fond of his Mother. Ed had a sick perverted mind and at the age of ten, and an orgasmic experience when he witnessed his Mom and Dad slaughtering one of their farm animals. He was later caught masturbating in his bathtub to which his Mother decided throwing scalding hot water on him would stop him. She then proceeded to grab his junk and call them the curse of men.

His Mom, Dad, and Brother all died within a 5 year span. Soon after this, women in neighboring cities started disappearing. When Bernice Worden, a store clerk disappeared, police started an investigation which led them to Gein's farm. There the police found Worden's body hanging upside down in a shed. Her head decapitated and her body split from vagina to the neck.
Upon searching Gein's house, the police came across severed heads on bedposts, a necklace made of human lips, a woman's body outfit made out of a skinned female which included her breasts and vajay-jay. Human skulls were cut in half to make soup bowls, a human hear in a saucepan on the stove, and a human face made out of another humans skin.

In the end, Gein was convicted of killing two women but had admitted to digging up many women who resembled his mother. He was sent to a mental institution where he died in 1984 from cancer.

Some movies inspired by Gein include, Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Deranged,Silence of the Lambs, and House of 1000 corpses.

Here it is...Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

A little background...I love horror movies that deal and or have events that can happen in real life...

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (TCM from here on out): The Beginning was a gore fest from beginning to end. I kid you not in the first 5 minutes of the film, the owner of the meat packing company gets a hammer to his face....Did I mention it was a close up shot?

This movie is the prequal to the TCM that came out around 3-4 years ago. It shows about a family who lives in a small Texas town where the meat packing company, the last revenue generating facility in the city has closed down due to health reasons. Their town is also starting to be overrun by hippie kids and bikers which also pisses them off.


Sheriff Hoyt: You remember him as the sheriff from TCM from 3-4 years ago. Was made a star by his dark sadistic humor which people absolutely loved. Well...he wasn't actually a sheriff...He was just a hungry old korean war veteran who killed the last sheriff in the city stole his clothes, drank his blood, and presumed his identity.

Momma: I'm not sure if she was Sheriff Hoyt's Mom but that's what he called her. They looked the same age...She was pretty much against what Leatherface and the Sheriff were doing but soon started going along with it. She even cooks them soup out of human remains.

The Uncle: He was the old man with no legs in the first TCM. Well he was also against the Sheriff's and Leatherface actions but he did not want to go against them either. This movie showed how he lost his legs. Starting out as a tow truck driver for the Sheriff, he was just an old man doing what he was told. A biker shots the Uncle in his leg. Having no medicine, the Uncle is suffering for part of the movie...Good ol' Sheriff took care of that and had Leatherface chop his leg off with a chainsaw. I started laughing at this part as the Sheriff said, "Look at did a messy job...his legs are all uneven now...Chop off his other leg", which Leatherface did...There was nothing wrong with his other leg!!! It was just uneven.

Leatherface: Turns out this guy was abandonded as a child because he was really ugly. Momma found him while she was digging in the trash and took him home with her. While growing up he used to mutilate animals and soon became a worker at the meat packing company. When that closed down he still had the urge to kill and with the Sheriff's help, started killing off hippies and bikers. Leatherface didn't use a chainsaw for most of the movie. The first time he used it was when he threw a biker on top of it and turned the chainsaw on while the sheriff held the biker on top of the chainsaw! Awesome and gruesome....From here on out, the chainsaw was his weapon of choice.

In the movie 4 late teens of legal age (2 guys, 2 girls) were traveling because the two guys were brothers and were to be shipped off to Vietnam together. The younger of the two was going to run off into Mexico as he was scared to go to war. He started burning his report to duty card but his older brother saw and was like WTF? A biker girl started chasing the teens and the teens, not paying attention hit a cow in the road which caused them to flip. The biker was going to rob them when the Sheriff came and blew the bikers brains away and took 3 of the 4 teens, as well as the dead biker back to the hell house where he had his way with them...especially the girls..There were beatings, mutilations, torture, and killing that pursuded. Finger nails were pulled off, faces removed, human soup, blood name it and it was in this Horror Flick of the Year...I won't give out the ending or in between parts but I give it two severed thumbs up.

As i mentioned this movie was really graphic. From close ups of Leatherface peeling the skin off of arms and a face to the beatings him and the Sheriff dished out. My wife was sickened by the sights and had to excuse herself for a few minutes. I loved the ending which I will not spoil for you but it is pretty eerie and leaves you can someone do that...

They say this is based off a true story which it is...Notice the words..based off...not every detail is word for word, action for action what happened. Either tonight or tomorrow I will give you the story of Ed Gein who if it wasn't for him we wouldn't of had movies such as TCM or Psycho...

Raul on the Kevin and Bean Show?

I was on the Kevin and Bean show today speaking about Bean's blog. I made a petition to keep Bean's Blog Alive about 2 months ago or so and it finally reached its goal of 100 signatures. To my surprise when I got home last night I saw an email from Bean asking if I can be on the air tommorrow which I quickly replied to with a yes. Around 6:15 I get a call from Lightning who is the producer of the show. He gets some info from me and I'm on hold waiting to be brought on the air. The queue arrives and I start speaking about the petition and I totally get chastised for creating it. Ralph and Kevin ask me a few questions pretty much asking why the hell did I do it for and finally ending the interview with an, "I'm going to kill you comment". It was a lot of fun but seriously sign the petition. It's a great blog with tons of information, awesome pictures, and Tater Tot Friday.

Nose Hair Watch 2006

As of 7:00pm yesterday...the nose hair has been yanked...However..this morning I was feeling another tickle so I may have to do some more digging err reasearch to determine which hair is causing the tickle.

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

A tickle

I've had a nose hair tickling my nostril all day. Birdman and The Duke said to pull it but that hurts too much...I can't wait until I'm home to pull it or cut it.

The Wedding, Forensics, and a Tool

Well I haven't posted in a

The wedding and honeymoon went very well and I hope to be posting some pictures up soon. Keep in mind that they are clean pictures and nothing from the honeymoon slides will show up on here nor anywhere else on the net. Special Thanks to The Wrider, The Duke of Fullerton, and The Man O' War from Portugal Mario for attending the festivites. The Duke and Dukess had a dance off with the Man O' War!!

I started my Computer / Digital Forensics classes at Cal State Fullerton and i've got to tell you that they are awesome and so far I am really into them. There is so much that I have learned in such a little time. For those that don't know what Computer / Digital Forensics is, it is the study of Computer Crime and once complete I will be a certified Digital Forensics Examiner. It encompasses Law and Computers which are two of my favorite subjects. I'll keep you posted to how its going.

FYI...I love talk radio because you can listening to interesting conversations and never have to say anything back.

Two days before my wedding I went to go see what is probably the best concert I have been to this year...the band....TOOL. The stage set up was all white and very simple. Two songs from their set were Wings for Marie part I. and 10,000 Days (Wings part II). During this set Maynard, the lead singer for the band walked off stage. I didn't know why at first but then I did some reading (once I got home). Tool changed their setlist for this show alone and included Wings parts 1 & 2 which is something they have never played live. Both of the songs refer to his Mother Marie (or Judith Marie). 10,000 days refers to how long she survived with the sickness she had. The reason Maynard walked off stage was because he broke down in tears while singing the songs. Those songs have much more meaning to me now than they did before. The rest of the set was AWESOME! Laser mixing..everything flawless. Tool is a must see band.

Bachelor Party...and The Mother Fn Man himself..

The Recovery efforts are on their that I mean the Aspirin.

Good Evening folks; it is I the post Bachelor-Party guy without the hang over I thought I was going to have.

I will start off by saying Saturday was one of the best times I've had in a long time. Lots of laughs, drinks, fight watching outside on top of a 51 story lounge in Las Vegas...

Now to the part of the weekend that pissed me off and opened my eyes to a lot of things...yeah I don't have many close friends, but the ones I invited to Friday nights festivities I expected would show up for this special occasion..Out of the 20 or so that I invited umm 2 showed up....Luckily my cousin has a lot of drunk friends that he invited who showed up that enjoy having a good time no matter who its for. Unfortunatly, I'm not too crazy for his friends as they get really really out of control. After 2 1/2 hours of being there, I took off as I soon felt the party turned more for them than me. Had it not been for the drunk friends, most of whom I didn't know, there would have been 4 people there...sad isn't it? Happy on outside, horrible on inside..Did I mention there were no chairs inside this empty house? Thanks to the Duke of Fullerton, he managed to swing a blow up mattress for me.

Saturday really made up for the Friday night shit fest. Went to Vegas, stayed at Hooters, and had lots of fun. Festivities started around 9pm at the VooDoo Lounge at the Rio. I was introduced to a drink called "Witch Doctor" and became really familiar with it by the end of the night. That as well as his pal good ol Jack Daniels. Yes I drank and it was sickness, just a nice buzz going on. Smoked on a cigar..enjoyed the Las Vegas skyline.

What was cool about the VooDoo Lounge this night was it not only my Bachelor Party, it was the official Ultimate Fighting Championship After Party and guess who showed up? The man himself, Mr. Kick your ass any day, the Motherfuckin man himself Chuck Liddell. He just finished kicking Sobral's ass in the 1st round of their UFC match that took place that night at Mandalay Bay. I can now say Chuck Liddell was at my Bachelor Party and I won't be lying about it.

Something else happened at that party that made me leave early without some of the people I went with. Don't think bad, I didn't do anything wrong. I actually prevented something from occuring and I feel really good about it. No I didn't fight Chuck Liddell, he's scared of me. The Truth of the matter is...I can't say here..I'll tell those like the Duke, The Wrider, and Birdman of what happened. Sorry to the others who read this blog and want to know, just can't have too much info out there.

Didelphic Uterus

The Duke of Fullerton and I had an interesting conversation over lunch and dealt with Didelphic Uterus. It all started with the, who would you rather date, a lady with one leg bigger than the other, or one who is so crosseyed that her eyes are pointing at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. We went on, or I went on as he was getting grossed out and finally stumbled onto Didelphic Uterus. Didelphic Uterus is a rare condition that occurs in women. This so called defect occurs when a woman has TWO vajayjay's. TWO!?!?!? How lucky must a guy be to date a woman with Didelphic Uterus.

In case you were wondering, the question was, Would you rather date a girl with Didelphic Uterus or one with three whoowhoo's

Birdmans Request

The Birdman requested it and here it is. The reciepe for paste.

Flour and Water Paste
This paste can be used for papier-mâché projects. This paste is nontoxic, which is good for young children, and it will last for months if you keep it in the refrigerator.

1/2 cup flour
3 cups boiling water
3/4 cup cold water

Slowly pour cold water into flour and stir to make a paste. Pour paste into the boiling water, stirring constantly. Cook for 5 minutes or until the paste is thick and smooth. When cool, pour into a plastic squeeze-top container; label.

Notice something different this year than last?

Brief history about myself. I have been a big weather buff since I was 7 years old or so. I listened to weather forcasts on my police scanner, watched Dallas Raines give the afternoon weather report. I even wanted to become a meteorologist.

Current- One thing has boggled my mind and I've been wanting to post on this for a few days. Have you noticed one thing about this year that is different than last year? Here is a hint:

Arlene,Bret,Cindy,Dennis,Emily,Franklin,Gert,Harvey,Irene,Jose,Katrina,Lee,Maria, Nate,Ophelia,Philippe,Rita,Stan,Tammy,Vince,Wilma,Alpha,Beta,Gamma,Delta,Epsilon,

Well, if you don't have it by now, those are Hurricane names. 27 of them to be exact; in fact, so many hurricanes happened last year that the NWS had to issue Greek names.

Hurricane Katrina, one of the most devistating hurricanes of all time swept across Florida as a Category 1 and gained intensity to what i believe was the strongest hurricane in history. The storm lost some of its strength as it devestated Louisiana.

There were a total of 4 CAT 5 storms last year which is the first time ever in a year that there have been more than 2.

Onto this year...With half the hurricane season over, we have a total of 0 Hurricanes and 2 tropical storms. NO HURRICANES!?!?!

Last year we were hearing that Global warming was the cause for the outbreak. If that was the case, then wouldn't we see that this year?

I read an interesting article a few years which talked about how the Government was working on a scientific experiement to control weather. Weather Manipluation was the title and it was pretty scary. Imagine using the weather in warfare? What could the affects be from that.

In 2005,was the Atlantic Ocean, and the Golf Coast the testing ground for this?

Just this year in Loma Linda, a freak incident occured called "megacryometeors". This my friends are chunks of ice that fall from a cloudless sky. In fact, megacryometeors have fallen in such places as Africa where its freakin 110 degrees in the shade. How can a chunk of ICE fall out of the sky??? Have you heard about this on the news? No? Could it cause a panic if reported? Possibly. Weather Manipulation? Possibly

Please take a second to read the below article. You may find it interesting.

Damn those Terrorists

Hey all,

Still here in San Francisco. Looks like I will not be flying home tomorrow after all because with the transportation I have going to the Airport, I would not get there in time since this Terror Alert messed things up.

If you haven't heard by now, the US is under an Orange Terror Alert level cause of some jackholes in London who were planning on making explosives to resemble drinks. Early word was that the terrorists were planning on blowing up the planes over New York, Boston, and Los Angeles. The Govenator Arrrrnold placed the National Guards at the airports up here along with bomb sniffing dogs and police men with rifles. The BART which I talked about on my last post has police men with bomb sniffing dogs searching random people as well. What a first time flying experience.

I went to Fisherman's Wharf last night and ate dinner with some people that i'm taking my class with. We had fun but the food really sucked. We ended up bagging it and giving it to a homeless guy.

The weather is really nice over here..around 70 degrees and overcast.

Since there is no longer a flight for me I will be driving into So Cal tonight.

I'm in Frisco

Hey everyone,

I am currently in San Francisco. I got to Oakland around 4:30pm and took the BART (Train) to Frisco. Let me tell you...the plane ride was awesome. It felt like I was on a really high bus. There was very little turbulence and the views were that I mean the lady across from me in a tank top had massive whoo whoo's. I took the guy sitting next to me preztels because he was asleep.

The BART was scarier than the plane ride. It went through some of the slummiest parts of Oakland which by coincidence is right behind Oakland Coliseum, home of the Raiders. I get in one of the train cars and it had about 3 people in it, one of whom was sleeping. The car was very hot so i leaned back to rest and try to keep cool. Next thing I know, im sweating and i'm by myself in the car, everyone switched to an airconditioned car. Well the train slowed to a stop so I decide to switch cars and wouldn't you know it. As I move from one car to another, the train takes off at high speed and i lose my balance. There is a sign that says don't stand between cars, guess where I was. I couldn't open the door to the other car because the train was moving too fast. Finally with my mighty mighty muscles I pryed it open.

My exit finally comes so I get out and its a really nice part of Frisco but I had no idea which direction to go. I head up Powell street and according to Google Maps my hotel is 1000 feet from the train. BS on that. I walked probably half a mile up the steep San Francisco hills avoiding bums and strollers.

My hotel room is really nice, small but nice. I even have a robe! The bathroom is emmaculate and I have surround sound in my room. Uncle Vitos is a kick ass restaurant if you want some real italian taste in a greasy see through bag.

The White Album

Intro: First of all I'm going to try and do this off the top of my head so if I get the facts wrong or confused I apologize.

A little history about myself. I didn't really start getting into rock n roll until 1998 while taking a Bach to Rock class in high school. I was a fan of Nirvana and 311 but I didn't have any interest in knowing anything else about the bands and just wanted to hear the music. Bach to Rock class changed that as I was introduced to a band that changed rock music history as we know it; This band...The Beatles.

The Beatles "White Album" is up there as one of my favorite albums of all time as it features many genres including folk, country, rock, psychodelic/goa, hiphop, funk, and blues all mixed in together which is to this date the only album I know that is like this. The album itself was given its name the "White Album" simply because the album sleeve was white with the words The Beatles embossed in an off center fashion on the cover. There is nothing on the sleeve or vinyl itself that gives it that name "White Album". The album was produced in 1968 by George Martin and Chris Thomas during one of The Beatles most frustrated times that they have ever had together. At this time The Beatles were heavily involved with Maharishi Yogi in India as well as experimenting with new types of hallucinogen drugs not to mention the involvement of Yoko Ono was at its highest level.

After returning from India to record this album, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were very frustrated with each other so much that they recorded the album in two separate studios with two separate producers (names mentioned above). Paul wanted the Beatles to go in one direction with their musical style and wanted to separate John from Yoko. John wanted to do his style harder/darker rock and was very much in love with Yoko and was tired of hearing all the crap the rest of the Beatles were dishing out about their relationship. On top of that, the Beatles mentor/idol/teacher the Maharishi of India was accused of trying to rape Mia Farrow which led to the departure of the Beatles from India.

According to George Martin, Paul wanted to record this album with a softer melodic style as John wanted a psychedelic, harder, darker style thus leading to Paul and John having lead sing their style and their own songs throughout the album.

Some McCartney Songs:

Helter Skelter: Paul actually wanted to spice things up with Helter Skelter making it the hardest rocking song he's ever written. The reason he wrote it this heavy was his response to The Who's "I can see For Miles" track which was pretty heavy. The heavy guitar rifts, and lyrics influenced many people including none other than Charles Manson. Manson heard these lyrics and believed that it was a warning of a race war. He thought of the Beatles as the Four Angels of the Apocalypse and dubbed the race war Helter Skelter. Helter Skelter is also a ride in Great Britian.

Some other songs credited to McCartney are Blackbird, Ob-la-di Ob-la-da, Rocky Racoon, Honey Pie.

Funny story about "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da". The opening piano part to the song was recorded many many times by a very drug induced Paul McCartney. Finally after twenty or so tries, John Lennon came into the studio and yelled, "I am higher right now than I have ever been, Higher than you've ever been, Higher than you'll ever be, and the opening should go like this..." and he played the opening piano line which was recorded and put on the album

Some Lennon Songs:

Yer Blues: This song was recorded due to the rising popularity of Blues music and the decline in psychedelic. John pretty much said you want your blues music well here are yer blues. The lyrics refer to him missing Yoko back when they were in India.

Dear Prudence: This was written to Mia Farrow's sister who was in India with them at the time. She was very shy and didn't want to come out of her room she was staying in.

Revolution 9: The most psychedelic record on this album and the first goa type of song that I know of. This had really early electronica in there as there are different sound bites from television shows some played backwards; creepy screams and noises in a surround sound format. Awesome!

Some other notable tracks are As My Guitar Gently Weeps which Eric Clapton was brought onto record.
"Goodnight" is an awesome lullaby which the music was written by Ringo Starr while lyrics were provided by John Lennon. Very soft, melodic, McCartney style song that Lennon would sing to his son at night time. Personally my favorite song on the disc as it seemed to bring a perfect close to this album.

I ended up watching 40 year old virgin last night again. The first time I saw it I fell asleep half way through it. Good news this time around as I fell asleep in the other half that I didn't fall asleep on before. I don't see what all the big fuss is on it.

One of the hardest words for me to say is Rural. What's one of yours?

I was on my way home from my Fiance's today and the police had the road blocked off. Either a really bad accident or another deer got hit. Damn Commericaliztion Revolution!

All the poor animals and critters are being ran out of their natural habitat with no where to go except to where Humans are. Then we end up killing them and they are "Invading our Neighborhoods" B.S. on all that as we invaded them.

An alaskan oil pipe line was shut down today due to corrosion. That line supplies the US with 8 percent of its oil so expect gas prices to go up about....ready? 45 cents a gallon. I remember I used to say when gas prices started passing 2 dollars a gallon that we are never seeing 1.99 or less for gas again. Well so far I'm right and the oil industry keeps uping the ante so when gas prices are 2.99 a gallon we can be all happy.

I wanted to center this blog around one of my favorite if not my favorite album, The Beatles White Album. I've read awesome stories and listened to interviews regarding this album and they are simply awesome. I will share them with you tomorrow..

I sounded like freakin Mr. Rogers there.

Yesterday I drove by the site of the dead deer and in fact, it is still there. I noticed some of its leg bone is popping out...poor thing

Well..another boring weekend at home...I wish I had some friends that hit me up and say hey lets do something. Oh well, I did get my TV fixed from CC. Did an exchange so hopefully this one doesn't break.

I really enjoy talk radio wanna know why? Well it's because I feel like I am in a conversation with someone yet I don't have to say anything back.

My blog has been really boring lately..I guess there is still a lot on my mind and being stuck here with no where really to go just sucks ass. Maybe I will go to the Casino tonight and play the penny slots.

Details on the Duke of Fullerton, Freeway problems.

I saw a dead deer on the way to work today. I felt bad as its eyes were still open and I can only hope that its bambinos are safe.

I had good topics to talk about but I have completly blanked out and don't have a clue on what I was going to say.

I have a HUGE problem with those pesky carpool drivers who think they have the right to drive in the carpool lane because they are driving their kid somewhere. I think that is totally misuse of the highways since they aren't really carpooling. Seriously, how can that be carpool? Their kids can't drive. They aren't keeping the air any cleaner. Total BS. Any highway patrol readers should pull over and ticket these drivers.

I also have a problem with those Amber Alert signs that you see while driving the freeway. They are good to have in case someone is kidnapped, but seriously, do I have to know that it is going to take 30 minutes to drive to Los Angeles? If no one is kidnapped, leave the signs off!

On that subject I saw an Amber Alert sign recently saying so and so got kidnapped by a male (always seems to be the case) and they are driving a gray sentra. Every gray car I see while driving I think is the kidnapper. Not so happy ending in this story as the kidnapper and his victims were all found dead behind a Supermarket.

I saw a television show on the Travel Channel last night called Extreme Foods: Asia or something similar to that. I work with a few yellow men myself and have witnessed eating of chicken leg/feet with the little goose bumps still on the leg! GROSS....not as gross as this television show. Rooster Testicles (which I laughed at because they are cock balls), ant larvae, Frogs on a stick ala hotdog on a stick, catepillars, etc. You get my drift, F'N sick shit. Someone needs to buy charlie some pepto.

I'm alone this weekend as my fiance is going out of town with her mom for a Mother / Daughter get away before the wedding. Look we all know shes going to get drunk with mom. I hope they catch a donkey show while in San Diego. Watch for your cousins as they run across the freeway babe.

Crap another story just left my head.

5 days and counting folks until I take my first flight to San Francisco. My Mom always told me always wear clean underwear in case something happens. Sorry Mom, but I will probably crap my pants on the way to the airport anyways so the clean underwear won't help any.

Oh ok I remember. Blog reader The Hero asked about the Duke of Fullerton. The Duke of Fullerton aka Mr. Duncan...ah too obvious...Robert D is an alumni of Cal State Fullerton. If we were doing a test on Robert D., the question would be Al Bundy is to Polk High as Robert D. is to..A) DeVry, B) MIG, C) Women's Lib, or D) Cal State Fullerton. There is an ongoing joke with the Duke as we all assume he is rich thus we (The Wrider, Myself, Birdman, and That Guy) go way over the top on his wealth. For instance, his new house that he purchased in have to cross a draw bridge to get into the compound seriously...I mean, how many 28 year olds can say hey, I have a helicopter landing pad in the back of my house...

Ahh I miss the blog

The Bliddidy Blog

It's 1 am and I just took a shot of tequila..

Before I get started I would like to thank The Wrider and the Duke of Fullerton for taking me to lunch for my birthday this past week. I had lots of fun as I always do hanging out with you goons.

Let's I almost sideswiped an old man.

Speaking of old men, whats the deal with Nirvana and Metallica using them in their music videos?

And speaking of music videos, why doesn't MTV hardly show them anymore?

Cool thing happened on friday as I spoke to Chris Cornell from the band Audioslave...Well I spoke through him via an email...that somebody read...him but he answered back damnit. I asked if he or Audioslave have ever considered doing an acoustic tour. He said yes that they have been thinking of it but some songs of the harder songs are difficult to do acoustic style. Thanks Bean!

I went to a really boring party today where a bunch of ex high school jocks were reminicing like they always do..maybe i should have put a polk high jersey on and talked about scoring 4 touchdowns in 1 game that way I could have been included in one of the coversations. Oh well..I was out of there within 1/2 hour.

I feel a tingly in my body from the tequila

i hate when my foot itches when I'm driving.

Best Time in a Long Time...includes Golfing with Playboy Playmates

What's up peeople.

I'm in one hell of a good mood right now. I just returned home from a Christmas Party. Yes a Christmas in July party. Why did they call it that? I have no idea but I will tell you about it.

I got these passes about a month ago and have been waiting eagerly for this day. The party was for AM 570 Sports Radio which is host to the Loose Cannons (Vic the Brick, Michael Thompson, and someone else) and Goodtimes featuring Matt "Money" Smith (formerly of KROQ), Joe Grande (formerly of Power 106), and Wayne Cook (former college football player). Party started around Noon time and ended around 7pm. My cousin and I got there around 1pm. Walking in we were greeted by a red carpet, given our badges and directed to a private area at Dave and Buster's-Ontario Mills Mall.

There we were treated to all the free soft drinks including water, and food that we wanted. After being there about 3 minutes my name is picked from a raffle and I win this "Bight University" shirt which is a television show coming out on the Discovery Channel. We soon made friends with the promotions / production assistants there for the radio show. They kept coming up to inviting us to join in on the Daytona 500 racing game as well as virtual golf to win some prizes. We were given game cards ( i still have 6) to play with and I came in 7th or 8th each time I played. My cousin did a lot better than I did mainly chalking up 2nd place finishes

Onto virtual golf where I kicked his ass. Up first was Wayne Cook from the good times show and he smacked the ball 287 yards. Guess who's next? I get up there and hit the first ball ehh 90 yards...My second shot...200 yards. Not enough to beat Wayne but good enough to put me in 4th place overall.

My cousin...his furthest shot...74 yards...Keep in mind he is 23 6'2 or so, and about 250 pounds..Jerk

We go back and watch some more of the broadcast and the promotions team comes back half hour later and asks wanna play more virtual golf. My cousin was in the bathroom so I went without him...Here's where it gets good. I get there and there are 4 Playboy Playmates sitting down talking to me while I wait my turn. I could have hit that ball 300 yards without a club if you know what I mean. I ended up in 3rd place in this round. After I shot, a 6 foot tall blonde playmate gets up and is like I'm going to swing. So she starts playing golf too!

See cousin, sometimes you just have to squeeze those turtle heads in and you wouldn't have missed this....jerk

My cousin ended up playing a game on the air called the goodtimes gauntlet and won a basketball jersey..hat..and some other crap...Joe Grande clicked with my cousin because they both wax their eyebrows...Money and Wayne called both of them homos on the air and in front of around 250 people...haha jerk

See now I got screwed out of a kick ass prize 3 times. There was a trivia game and I knew the answer. The radio show would pick 3 people to guess the trivia each hour. First hour I was 5th in line and they only got the first 3. Second hour I was 3rd in line but I didn't know someone was holding a spot so I ended up 4th. Third hour I'm 3rd again and the jerk that was first guessed the correct answer. He won a digital camera, a Gas card, and a surprise trip to Las Vegas..ARGH!!!

I ended up being on the air at the end of the Good Times show complaining how I got screwed out of that prize. Joe Grande said..hey you just go screwed again Cut his Mic...oooooooooh went the crowd and so did I. Money said ahh for your troubles we are going to give you a Ray Charles CD...hmmm Ray Charles CD or Vegas/Digital Camera/Gas Card...yeah..give me the CD...jerk...

All in all this was a good time.

A Plumber..A spider..and A not a bar joke

Jack Stephonowski, Jack Jack Stephen. I saw the Jack Stephen Plumbing and Heating van on the freeway today and it gave me a flashback to when I was a kid and watch the Jack Stephanito...Jack Stepehen commercials..ahhh the times. If you know of a Jack Stephen website please let me know.

I heard a form of the Camel Spider is now in America. If I remember correctly the story came from Arizona where this girl found it inside her home. Scary as those things have been known to get pretty big especially in Iraq. Check out this pic. Iraqi Camel Spider.

Do you ever wonder how many people drive to the same area you do everyday? Normally I see the same few cars at the same time on the same freeway everyday on my way to the OC, but there is one car that gets on a few exits after I do, and gets off at the same exit i do. Truman Show anyone?

Keep it coming people

Hey Everyone

Good turn out so far for the Keep Bean's Blog Alive petition which has raised 30 signatures. 24 of them coming from just Today.
Keep spreading the word and don't be afraid to put your name on the list.

Ok so I'm on my usual hour drive into the hell of the OC and there is a car in front of me with interesting license plates. Well the frame anyways. It looked like the writing was in arabic so I kept looking to try and figure it out. Then I thought hey...I don't know any arabic languages but for some odd reason I kept looking. I finally guessed what it said. Try and figure it out

derewop yb eht
retspmah ylimaf

Here is a hint. The car was a 96 Kia which original sale price was somewhere around $6,000 which is what most of us spend in a year on gas.

The Return of a Pal, Blah on Superbowl halftime shows

I was really excited today; not only was it my birthday but I had a return of a Pal. That's right PAL bubblegum. I found it at a local store here in Riverside which I will keep a secret because I don't want anyone else whoring in on my stash. PAL was a favorite treat of mine and I couldn't wait each year until Halloween because that was the only time I would see PAL bubblegum. The flavor doesn't last long so its always wise to pop two in at once. After reading some about PAL online, I don't know whether or not to be excited. According to this site, PAL bubblegum has been discontinued. Either I found a store that still carries them, or I need to visit a doctor pronto.

Prince will be the 2007 halftime entertainment for this years Superbowl.

::Ring Ring::
Hi, 2007? This is 1986, we want Prince back.

Jeez, Well at least last year they had Paul McCartney. Who's with me on some Metallica performing?

How crappy is this? Monopoly a favorite game board for many generations is getting rid of the Monopoly Money and bringing in.....wait for it.....a Debit Card. Complete B.S.! Better go out and buy an original before it's too late. And pay with cash.

Today's funny Florida story comes from the town of Cantonment. A teen was playing poker online when
he was struck by lightning that went through his computer. Yeah buddy, poker online?

Parents not home? Check
High Speed Internet? Check
Lightning Storm? Check
Right Hand? Check

Sorry PAL (see how I referenced the PAL bubblegum) but it sounds like the only poker you were playing was Pocket Poker. The reason the lightning ran through your right hand is because you had a flush that left your hand a little moist....Ya Pussy

Could it be?

ahh..So I'm laying down in my room and I have two windows near my cieling facing west. A black object floating across the sky captured my eye. At first it looked like a helipcopter flying super low so I ran to my living room thinking it was going to crash land. I look out my window and don't see anything so I become a bit nervous. All of a sudden out of the sky falls a Happy Birthday balloon. Usually you see them flying in the sky and say hey...someone let a balloon go. How often is it that one actually lands in front of you?

The funny thing about it is, tomorrow (the 24th) is my birthday. Something inside me says that the happy birthday balloon dropped in front of my house was a little happy birthday from my aunt that passed away a year and a half ago from cancer. Last year on my birthday we had a freak thunderstorm that happened and the weather folks hadn't predicted any storms for our area and she knew I like thunderstorms.

Who says you can't believe?

Feeling Bloggy

I knew from the get go today was going to be a bad day when I saw two things on the freeway. First while driving on the 60 freeway, I saw a hearse. Now, this was no ordinary was fixed up. The top of the car where they usually carry the body was chopped and rails were put around it. It looked like one of those double decker buses you see in london.

Secondly and by far the asian driving school car...those of you folks that know what I'm talking about can agree with me, the only thing worse than an asian driver is an asian driving school.

It is finally Friday and I can't wait for this weekend. My fiance and I have an appointment tomorrow to do something for our wedding. I can't remember what it is though...I will probably do yard work around the house and hopefully buy a lawnmower. My backyard is starting to look like swampland.And finally on Monday, it is my 25th birthday and I will celebrate by going to the beach with my girl.

Here is some food for thought; Did you know that Pork Butt Steak does not actually come from a pigs behind? It actually comes from the meaty part of the pigs shoulder.

The heat and humidity is back on in the lovely smog filled city of Riverside. I really need to try and stay home to enjoy our house. Since having it, I've been on the run and haven't had the chance to soak in the homeowner experience.

You know, my Fiance bought a 26" flat screen television from a Circuit City. Within a month it broke and I've been waiting two damn months for it to get fixed. It took 1 month for the service tech to come out, 1 month for the part to be delivered. Well the part isn't here yet and I called Circuit City customer support. I got transferred to 5 different people who probably have a junior high school education, and after the 5th transfer, I got disconnected. Don't buy anything from CC jerks!

Last I would like to thank fellow Blog reader and co-worker Birdman for the tip on getting my guitar pick out of my acoustic. I finally got it out last night! Birdman also hooked me up with some killer graphics for this site which I will be posting up very soon.

Interesting fact Robert Franklin Stroud the original Birdman of Alcatraz. He never kept birds while at Alcatraz. He used to raise and sell birds prior to being transferred there which is how he got his nickname. There was a "birdman" character that was the focus of an episode of Gilligan's Island where Gilligan found a homing pigeon. He wrote a rescue note and ended up going to this "Birdman" who was in jail that raised birds. The "birdman" thought it was his friend who he communicated with on a regular basis sending rescue jokes and never took one of the notes seriously.

A break up and a beat down

I'm not sure what she was talking about but the lady that sits behind me just said, "I want something ooie and gooie". I wouldn't have mind if she was younger but shes pushing 70 years old. Gross.

What's going on jerks?

Funny story of the day comes from Florida. I swear Florida has some of the most odd ball stories i've ever heard. This guy allegedly tries to rob a man returning home from work at 10pm. The man being robbed runs into his house, his clothes being ripped by the attacker. The attacker runs after him who in turn is attacked by the homeowners family. The man's wife jumped on the attackers back while their 13 year old daughter knocks him in the head with a plastic chair and ties him with jump rope until the cops arrive. How weak must this attacker been? Getting choked out by a wife along with being beaten and tied by a 5 foot tall 13 year old girl? Come on! Vince McMahon, hire these broads to wrestle for ya.

I am a bit disappointed right now. Two of my favorite bands are apparently going on a "break" of sorts. The two bands; Audioslave and System of a Down.

From what I have been able to gather, Audioslave's lead singer Chris Cornell has left the rest of his band behind after making their third album together. For those who are unfamiliar with who Audioslave is, they are 3 of the 4 members of the band formerly known as Rage Against the Machine. Kevin of the Los Angeles' 106.7 KROQ's Kevin and Bean show allegedly broke up the band telling Tom Morello (lead guitarist), you are so good you can make your own band, or something really similar to that. A few days later, the band breaks up. The other side of Audioslave is former Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell. He recently got re-married and had a new baby which is more than likely why he is leaving the band; this will give him more time to spend with his family.

System of a Down on the other hand is taking a break from each other. Lead guitarist Daron has said that he wants to pursue other side projects he is working on. Serj (vocalist) has his own side project as well with Audioslave's guitarist Tom Morello called Axis of Justice. Bassist Shavo has been known for djing at underground parties spinning up his flavor of Drum n Bass and the drummer John, I don't know what he's going to do.

Milk, The Signs of living in Riverside

I bought soy milk for the first time two days ago. It is organic and has a slight vanilla taste to it. I thought it was pretty cool that it has a label on the carton that says this will last 7-10 days before expiring.

I was excited getting my first house. It is located just inside Riverside county which puts us somewhat far enough away from my fiance and I parents but close enough to visit them still. Well after living here two months or so, I started noticing signs going up along the freeway. One of them says, "I BUY UGLY HOUSES, CASH". Great, that is a sign I want visitors to see as they come to my house. The newest sign that has been placed is this one. They say the girl in the picture is getting breathing treatments for asthma. I think shes sucking on a gasoline pump.

I dropped my guitar pick inside my acoustic guitar. Any ideas how to get it out?

7 more weeks until my wedding and I just noticed something. All the groomsmen are 6'1" plus in height. I'm slightly less standing at around 5'8".

Everyday is exactly the same

Well fellow bloggers i'm back. Not that many of you knew I was probably even gone nor cared but I am anyways.

Nothing really exciting lately...Two months away from my wedding date and im totally stressed out with work and planning this wedding. Its fun though but I can't wait until its over and my fiance and I are basking in the sun in Hawaii.

This past Friday I went to see Nine Inch Nails in concert.It was a good show and was pretty impressed with the opening band Bahaus (I spelled it wrong). NIN always a good band to see but I think I may of had more fun when I saw them at the KROQ acoustic Christmas. I think it could have been because I was literally 5 feet from the stage. I did hear some of my favorite tunes by them including: Something I can Never Have, Hurt, Burn, Wish. They played closer as well but that song is really really mainstream and its kinda played out in a way. I wanted to hear Reptile but they didn't play it to my disappointment. That will probably be my last concert for sometime unless I win some tickets from KROQ due to the impending marriage.

I decided on going back to school. I will be attending Cal State Fullerton and will be taking Computer Forensics. They say there are 3 jobs for every person out there who has knowledge in this. I like my current job but still, forensics is just awesome.

I've been so exhausted lately and don't know why. I'm always tired, and just feel like the energy is sucked out of me. It could be caused by the little bit of sleep I get, poor eating habits, or just pushing myself to the brink of collapse. What do you think it is?

I am a huge Pro Wrestling fan and yes I know its fake but I was super excited that ECW was coming back. What a total disappointment it has been thus far. ECW was the best damn wrestling promotion from 1994-1999 until they hit financial difficulties forcing them to close down. WWE (formerly WWF) bought them out and brought back the brand this past year. What a let down. It's watered down, not extreme, no fan involvement, too corporate. F Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Thanks for ruining something that meant a lot to many individuals.

NIN, Art, My buddy

My buddy Laura gets married later on today. Congrats to her.

Ya know I was on a radio show contest on the Kevin and Bean Show 106.7 KROQ trying to win tickets to a Nine Inch Nails show. Well I had a brainfart and they hung up on me cause they thought I was its all good though..i laughed it off.

I did however get tickets but I purchased them. NIN are my favorite band. Did I tell you I got hit by their drummers drum stick right smack in the middle of my head? It was awesome..If I didn't talk about it, I will another time.

I am a big fan of art work; mainly that of music. But occasionally I stumble across a blog that catches my interest and I think it will catch yours. Art

Ever click the next button on the top right hand corner of a blog. It is amazing what you find. A lot of foreign languages blog. I try to read them but can't get past most titles so I just keep clicking next. Let me know if you find one that is interesting.

Treehouse Guy, Rock n Roll

I read today that a man in India has lived in a tree for nearly 50 years following an argument with his wife. 50 YEARS!!! I hate climbing up a tree to tie a pinata for a birthday party and that lasts all but 3 minutes (like most of your love lives) but to stay in there for 50 years that is ridiculous. He was living in a mango tree in this "shed" he built but had to move because the tree fell down during a storm. Oh well, when I get married which is in 4 months, I know I have 4 trees in my backyard just in case.

Speaking of which, my house finally closed escrow and I began the move in process last Saturday. It's weird owning a house but I will soon get used to it.

My predictions of who would be playing at the 2006 KROQ Weenie Roast was pretty much dead on. I guessed RHCP, AFI, Pearl Jam, H.I.M., and Angels and Airwaves. All but Pearl Jam will be attending. I had also mentioned but not on here that Wolfmother would be there and they are. Listening to KROQ for so long I can always tell who will be playing their events except their annual Inland Invasion. That concert is harder to guess because mostly bands from the 80's and early 90's play that gig.

Wolfmother tickets will be going on sale soon at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. Never been to that venue but I am looking forward to going. I am also looking forward to seeing Nine Inch Nails play Irvine Meadows in July. Yeah I still call it Irvine Meadows and I refuse to call it anything else.

My Blog sucks, Radio, and Roast to a Weenie

My first post in nearly 3 months and why? I have 73 freakin views on my blog and 2 comments...whats up with that?

If my blog is boring please visit Bean Baxter's site. His is always full of interesting items..or at least I think they are interesting Bean

Anything new? Yeah bought a house and have a crappy agent...process is taking too long and i need to be in there by the first of the month because i have stuff in storage that i need to get out by the 30th...F the 951 realtors..

My goal in life is still to either A. Own my own business. or B. Get into Radio. More than likely it will be A because in order to get into radio you need major connections. Plus it is also a big risk not knowing if i would get a drop in pay. Not many people understand why I want to be in Radio. Well, I like to entertain people. I somehow say funny things without knowing it and always get the you should be in radio line. I've DJ'd at underground rave parties and that was fun. I also am very creative and beleive I can contribute a lot to a station with varies segment ideas...oh well...I'll keep trying and let's see where I end up..

This entry kind of sucks doesn't it?

KROQ's Weenie Roast 2006 is coming up May 13th in Irvine...should be a kick ass line up..H.I.M is confirmed so other guesses are Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and AFI taking over the main stage with Angels and Airwaves on the side stage...12 hours of hot sweaty rock n roll..couldn't ask for more..

VD and RIP

No not venerial disease, but Valentines Day..I felt really gay at work today because I work a red shirt. Now, I didn't mean to wear the shirt, I ironed it the night before like I always iron my clothes, and at probably 10am I noticed my shirt was red and connected it with Valentines Day...not a few moments go by and I hear hey at least someone is in the Valentine's spirit..well I wasn't in the spirit..I just accidently forgot that it was VD thats all...I didn't purposely wear a red shirt...

RIP to Matilda the world's oldest Chicken who passed away this past weekend. She was 16 years old..

The Weekend..

My weekend started on Friday..I was supposed to go co-host a radio show but fell asleep. My work has been draaaaaaaaaaaining me of energy lately. Lots of late nights, early mornings, and lots of conference calls..oh well..It's actually funny cause I'm in this conference room with Upper Management that has 20 some odd years of experience above what I do, yet my decisions and words matter.

Anyways that was my Friday night sleeping.

Saturday, I took my girl out to dinner because I probably wouldn't see her on Valentines Day; not a choice by either of us as she has school..I took her to the restaurant we went to after we got engaged..well not the same one..different city..hell different state..but it was good still..
Afterwards we went walking around the Spectrum in Irvine and something happened to me there that made me feel pretty lame..i saw a dollar bill on the floor and was like ooooh a I went to pick up the dollar I noticed a string attached to it and was like NO its a trick and before i could stand up right, the kid pulled the string and the dollar along with it. That little punk! I gave him props..stood up clapped gave him the finger..well the thumbs up..laughed and walked away...lil bastard...

Sunday I went to a Birthday party of a little kid..I once against busted out my thumb and did the old tear apart your thumb trick and they were all amazed..

Blah Blah the Blog

Where was this when I was in High School

Ok so we all know all the scandals lately of HOT teachers sleeping with their students. I mean
look at them. Seriously did ANY of your teachers look like this?

I graduated in 1999 from High School and all throughout those years I never had a hot teacher. In fact one of my teachers name was Karkus and she looked like one.

Today's story comes from Brooklyn New York where Freshmen at Brooklyn High School were given the best homework assignment in the world. They were told to do research about porn.

Once students started telling their parents about the assignment, Parents started calling the school, complaining to the supervisor who in turn pulled the homework.

The other day I ended up behind a tar truck..I was so happy..I love the smell of hot fresh tar...I have for years and don't know why..sometimes I wonder why I went into Information Technology I should have went into laying tar..but I can smell it all day..and today, across the street from my work they were tarring the roof of some business..once again..another happy day

My First Post

Wow..I forgot I had this account till I saw Bean's from KROQ Los Angeles blogspot. Welp my first posting I guess I'll introduce myself...Name is Raul and live in Southern California..the 909 area code yeaaaah buddy...Im 24 and will be getting married this year.

I am really into the whole Rock Music the concerts..I may have to cut back this year because as I said I am getting married which means saving money. The last concert I went to was the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas which headlined Nine Inch Nails, System of a Down, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Thrice, Fall out Boy, and Rise Against. Concert was awesome. I had won Pit Tickets from KROQ and seriously this was the best concert I have ever been to.

A crowd surfing midget landed on my head and my friend and I grabbed her and tossed her to security. She just ran back and started pitting and surfing again. After the Nine Inch Nails set, I got hit in the head by a flying object. The object was in fact the drumstick of NIN's drummer Josh Freese. The stick is in my room waiting to be framed.

I am also into comedy and have a pretty creative mind.

I keep getting errors trying to load pictures but as soon as I do I will post them.
