The 2011 Christmas List! (Part One)

December is upon us, friends! And you know what that means!!!

Unabashed materialism and gift-giving! America!

I’ve already got the gift for my Mah, Brah, and a few choice others picked out, but i’m sure they’re having a hard time figuring out what to buy me.

Let me make it easy for you.

Without further ado, The 2011 Christmas List!!!

1. The Nokona WF-1200C 12 Inch Walnut Softball Glove

The 12-inch. Not the Buckaroo. Not the Kangaroo. The Walnut. From Nokona. What’s more American than that?

2. The Toshiba Canvio 3.0 500GB External Hard Drive

Because 8MB images from the Nikon are rapidly eating my MacBook’s drive.

3. This Rotation

Wilson, Garza, Darvish, Feliz, Harrison, Holland.

Pick your Favorite Five.

4. Portal 2

Because I am both intelligent and intrigued by puzzles.

5. The Nikon 50mm f/1.8D Nikkor Lens

Ready for your close-up?

That’s all I have for right now.

Song of the Day – 11/23/11 – Sam & Dave

I have been on a MAD soul music kick lately, and my Sam Cooke station on Pandora is feeding my fire.

The Dynamic Duo, A.K.A. Sam & Dave, were known for their sweaty, energetic onstage performances and their earth-shatteringly incredible soul swag. They had most of their hits in the late 60’s, and used to open for Otis Redding and other superstars of the genre. Legends say that when Sam & Dave were onstage, Otis Redding would be backstage shitting his pants, worrying that he wouldn’t be able to top Sam & Dave. They were that good.

Their 1967 hit “Soul Man” was famously covered by The Blues Brothers, but perhaps less famous is the fact that the entire existence of The Blues Brothers is a direct homage to Sam & Dave, especially their onstage act.

In summation: Sam & Dave go hard.

Also: This is a timely SotD, because today i’ll be heading into the Corpus Christi area to see my peeps. Hold on! I’m comin’!

Sam & Dave – Hold On! I’m Comin’



Sedona & The Grand Canyon!

A special lady-friend of mine came to visit me in Arizona this weekend, and we went to Sedona, Arizona on Saturday, November 19, and then to the Grand Canyon on Sunday, November 20.

Wow.

And people claim that God created this.

He wouldn’t have had time.

Absolutely breathtaking.

You may notice that it’s a lil blurry in this embed, but if you click on the “HD” button in the embedded player, you can watch it in full-fledged HD crispness on Vimeo. It’s rather gorgeous at times.

Shot on a Nikon D3100 in NYC, October 28th, 29th, and 30th of 2011. We stayed at the DoubleTree Times Square on the 28th and the Millennium Hilton on the 29th. Thanks to Nevin, Clay, Frank, Alicia, and Jay (Sean).


It Has Returned…

Last year, I participated in No-Shave November, and made an epic film about my quest.



At the end of the video, it is stated that the beard will be back, and by God, it’s true.

I’d like to announce that, as of tomorrow morning, I will be participating in

No-Shave November 2011!!!

Join me in my quest! See yourself transform into all that is man! And of course, I’ll be documenting the whole thing!!!
