someone’s got a case of the mondays


If you have never seen Office Space then you wouldn’t know this quote and you are missing out. I have already referenced the movie twice in previous posts and there are more to come so watch Mike Judge at his finest.

I am not really feeling today at all. The weather is cool but overcast and a little rainy. Maybe I can get outside to skate today if the weather holds out but only after I finish my homework and take my final for Finance. Thank the Lord this class is over on Thursday. Hopefully I can bring up the 69% I have in the class right now with my powerhouse open book test taking skills. I’ll most likely finish with a “B” which will hurt my 3.6 GPA for now, but “C’s” get degrees right? Then on to Business Law and another Management class. Finally back to doubling up classes and knock out this Bachelors. Marketing degree by January 2011? I hope so, lets push through. Even though I don’t have a ton in the way of work, I hate Mondays and I don’t even have a real reason to right now. Im feeling all you out there on the grind and I’m sending up prayers that “humpday” and weekend play time come swiftly for us all.

This weekend was more fun than I had originally anticipated. Dont take that wrong. I was drained from being on busses for over 28 hours in one week, changing time zones twice in that period, touched 10 states (NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, PA, DE, MD, VA, AZ) and partied pretty hard in every area code along the way. The wedding was very creative and unlike any that I had ever been to. I would expect nothing less from Rori and Ryan since they are both artistic souls. It was set in a wooded lodge in the Appalachian mountains of MD just outside our hometown. They were married outside at a pine chapel, there was a bagpipe player, and a ton of people who I havent been around since before joining the military. Ryan sang to Rori as she came down the aisle then busted out the harmonica and rocked it! I could only shake my head as he wailed on it. The reception was held at the log cabin-styled lodge and the food was outstanding. Live music from a backwoods hillbilly band had the party jumping mixed in with a DJ on the ground floor. All in all, the entire event was a very unique way of joining two people who had been in love since elementary school. Read more…

seis de mayo


It kinda looks like a mexican tapeworm right?

Yup its the day after cinco de mayo and I figured I would keep the theme. It probably runs its course with this post though so dont worry about any more espanol in this blog.

I woke with a slight headache this morn, but fully understood where it came from…tequila. I do not like tequila and it does not like me. Its not really a hatred kind of thing, we just arent that cordial. He comes over, I get a little antsy, maybe start knocking things over and that’s how it all starts. I kept it cool last night with it being our first meeting in many months, but still this morning I awoke with a reminder that tequila had been in town. Read more…

exit through the gift shop

April 27, 2010 1 comment

Last night a gang of us met in the city to watch a recently released street art film called “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” It’s the story of a man who films every aspect of his life for fear of missing a key moment. While on filming on vacation, he learns that his cousin is “Space Invader“, a street artist notorious for creating space invaders from rubics cube pieces. From there the movie turns into a ten-year documentation of the emerging street scene throughout the world. He meets and films all the big names in the scene with one exception, the mysterious Bansky. This cat is cool as a cucumber and intelligent to boot. A thinker who’s medium wasn’t in the lecture hall but rather outside on the walls of the lecture hall. His thoughts on society and politics are actually very profound and he plays into the subversive theme of graf all while doing it beautifully and with a provocative touch. Read more…

Back in Hobo and rocking new duds! SKate duds that is. This board is so fresh it smells like springtime or babies. This board was inspired from the Strike I was rocking all summer long in 2009. I painted it with a teal base, white, yellow, pink and orange “Bustins”. This one is a little different since its mass produced, but it feels good to have inspired a board that hundreds will ride.

Next, those wheels. Jef “walkStar” came up with the “tightwall” name and I played into the blacked out inner design. Originally they were supposed to be black on the backside of the hub as well so that it looks like you are riding with no inner. Hope that makes sense.

Ate at Taco Chulo on Grand in Williamsburg and killed a massive Puerco burrito. It was insanely good. A little pricey, but one of the best burros I have had since leaving Tucson. I would liken it to Chipotle on steroids. Packed with well seasoned, fall apart pork, potatoes instead of the usual rice and freshly made guacamole. If you are in the area of the Bustin Boards shop or anywhere near Grand and Havemeyer, you should stop through and check out these delectables.

Im now back at Chris’s writing this and hanging on the couch. Thinking a nap is in order but since I am running out of daylight, that might not be a good idea. PLEASE let me sleep tonight!

Whats for dinn? Lost is on tonight, sawheat! Happy 4twenty all you clowns out there.
