So today I was walking from work (The Speakeasy) towards the Bart train through Chinatown and saw a dude about my age walking towards me. An Asian guy…with a little pep in his step. As we got closer I noticed he was staring at me, so I kind of glanced at him. As he got..

Since moving to Oakland, I’ve found a new form of commuting that is completely free and reliable: http://sfcasualcarpool.com/ Basically, all I do is go to a predetermined spot (about a 5 minute walk) and I open the door to a car and sit in and and say ‘Good morning’ and I get driven across the bay..
It looks like the wife and I will be making our way on over the bridge to Oakland within the next couple of weeks. I’m really hoping that this is the kind of place we’re into (because I am TIRED of moving and having to pick up and start over again). We got a nice..
A guy named Oscar Romero just bought this hat from me. If you don’t know who the OG Oscar Romero is, google it…
Strolled on over to Union Square today to participate in the Batkid flashmob. Like most things in San Francisco, it was incredibly packed and almost impossible to ascertain what was really going on… Great idea, though, and a great execution. It makes me want to work for the Make-a-Wish foundation. Every time I think about..
A 45 second test that tells you whether or not you’re more right- or left- brained…not sure what it means but I’d agree with the results 😉 http://en.sommer-sommer.com/braintest/
I hate to get all preachy and righteous, but I find these articles and stories about the ‘Great Pacific garbage patch’ fascinating. It seems altogether inconceivable, yet upon further consideration, completely possible. This flashed across my newsfeed the other day and it reminded me of the garbage patch. I remember seeing similar articles (although geared..
Saturday was a good day. I got up early, took a bunch of eBay pics, had a nice omelette for breakfast…watched ‘After Earth.’ Toni and I then went for a bike ride through the park and then the wiggle…then we took a nap. We had be debating whether or not we were going to go..
That’s me in the alley next to my office building, with my friends bike. My friend took this trying to show me how I should take a picture of him with his bike. Dope pic.
I must confess…I have a fascination with North Korea. My fascination started with a Nat Geo documentary, then this Vice Guide to Travel, then a book called ‘Long Road Home’ and another book called ‘Escape from Camp 14’. I’ve got one more in the queue called ‘Nothing to Envy’. This stuff really screws with my..
I made a couple of rookie mistakes in the last couple of days…I changed domain hosting without backing up my info. I lost about 10-20 posts…damn.
I’m not big on keeping up with latest version of expensive things. I bought an iPhone 4 three and a half years ago and it’s pretty much held up for me during that time. As with most things being used for hours upon hours over the course of more than a thousand days, it’s started..
Back when I moved to New York in 2003, the day after the blackout, I literally got off the plane after a redeye and took a cab to my Great Aunts house in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Even the cabbie had trouble finding Mackay Place. I had met my Great Aunt, once, back in the late..
Picked up the other day at NTSF. Didn’t even realize it until Toni pointed it out…gettin kinda sick of Nike. I don’t know if the quality has really gone downhill recently or it’s just something I began noticing when I started picking up other brands.
I’m pretty religious about keeping my teeth clean. I want one. Bad. http://www.blizzident.com/index.html
Came across this article the other day on Google News, basically summarizing the issue we’re having with Silicon Valley startup culture are pricing out historical San Francisco culture. Although I’m struggling too, I am also part of the problem. A problem that I feel has no real solution. There are ways that the city government..
My first Warriors game in Oakland cost close to $300 and left me hurting for a few days. They didn’t play particularly well and lost to the Spurs in Game 6…best part? Hanging with the bleacher crew and drinking $13 beers.
My beloved College ID. I’ve taken this thing with me through hell and back. Slug 4 life.
I posted this: I got this:
Halloween 2002…Chico. Evan and I were the hottest chicks on the block.
I was in San Francisco with my Grandpa Platt and I asked him to bring me to ‘The Wherehouse’ on Scott street…I know what was releasing and I saved up enough cash to pick it up…there I picked up another one of my all time favorites: Along with the CD came a bumper sticker and..
