How paint became my bitch.

Paint did not just become my bitch over night. Ok maybe it was over night. It was back in 1999 on my Compaq computer when I came home a little overserved from the bartender. I turned on the microsoft paint program and went to work. Somewhere in a closet are the originals but after much prodding by my roommate I decided to put them to canvas, and the rest as they say is History. So if you wish to peruse all my old paintings by searching for PAINT. But the reason for this post is with my new phone there is a program where I get to paint on photos! So it's sort of like paint is my bitch 2.0. SO here are some of those photos from my recent trip. Enjoy

Los Angeles California Days 1-4

So much has happened in the last 4 days it has been a fantastic whirlwind of fun and excitement! 
Let's look back and see what I have been doing starting with Thursday! 
Thursday we got into town and went out for drinks with some friends... not too exciting but i did get to ride in the back of a truck. Unlike the south this is frowne
d upon so I had to hide

On Friday we went to go see THE DARK KNIGHT and it was really everything I had dreamed it would be. Such a good time. Then we had a BBQ and played a game called Celebrity 
and i really think everyone should play. 
here is how it works
2 teams best with more people but lets say teams of 3 ... i think it could work with teams of 2. 
Get a big bowl and a bunch of paper cut into pieces big enough to write a few words on. 
everyone spends time thinking of "celebrities" and writes them on the papers, folds them in half and places them in the bowl. 

Examples: can be as straight forward as Ted Danson or as strange as "the turtle boy from the internet" However whatever is written down is the Clue you have to get your team to say.

Once all names have been filled out one person on the team gets one minute to go through as many names as possible.  For the first round anything goes. You can say anything except what is written on the paper. The first round goes on until all the papers are gone. After each minute the teams take turns going and alternating between people on the team. 

After all the names are gone you tally the scores and put all the papers back in the bowl. Then you start round 2 but this time you can only say one word.  You go through all the names the same way and then tally the scores.

Then in round 3 you can only say the word penis. Seriously it is a blast and a half.  Let me know if you have any questions.

On Saturday we went to a Wine event up in Santa Barbara. 90 wine vendors and free food. There was so much good wine, thank goodness it only went on for 4 hours or i have no idea how we would have gotten home. After the event we drove down to Newport and went out on a boat, played some skee ball and of course did some Kareoke. 

On Sunday we got to go see the Sox play the Angels to round out the perfect start to the trip. 
I am here until Friday so let me know if you want a Postcard!  Talk to you soon!

Well its been a few weeks since I last reported to you and well things have been great. Last Sunday was my birthday and that was great up to the part where I got food poisoning so that put a damper on things for the past week. But now I am up and running full speed ahead! This past week I got to see the Hot Water Music reunion show! Went to see Tim Fite and the Watson twins. Tim was nice enough to grace us with a Pizza party and also a Clay Monster building contest. Sunday was spent at the McCarren park pool for the Breeders and they put on a great show... all and all it was a pretty great weekend!

This week I am heading off to LA for 10 days and then off to Atlanta for a week and then to TN for a few days.. Be back in new york in about a month!



I am excited to announce all future blogs will appear on the relaunched Medium Rotation.  Find that and more! T...
