im back from LA and SF

27 03 2008

it was fun. it was awesome. im working on some cool stuff. I got to hang out with tammy and Cassidy who live in the awesome part of haigh-ashbury. Highly suggest going to SF for golden gate park alone. Ill try to add some pictures soon. Have to drag them off my phone first. I have been giving some thought that  I think I might have to go through with the Eliot Spitzer thing to get things really going though. Im giving it heavy consideration.  thats it for now. back to the grind. 

Seedy hotels in San Fran. Yikes. good hiding spots for stuff in hotels?

19 03 2008

So don’t beleive everything you read about on the internet. I chose the bay bridge inn because it had 5 positive reviews, but as I write this theres a fight going on between a homeless man and his imaginary friend.  For those traveling to San Fran, I would suggest avoiding 5th and 6th street (@ folsom). Just make a mental note if it. Im sure it will come in handy at some point.  The good news is that I worked on 3 songs today with the super talented David Earle. That guy can play a keyboard drumset better than most drummers I know  playing actual drums. You might have to read that sentence a few times au revoir. golden gate park tomorrow. dion  By the way – I was watching TV in my seedy hotel room and it looks like obama has his goose cooked. some serious back pedaling is necessary.  I defintely left m passport int his hotel accidentally in my hiding spot. they found it and sent it back to me. guess im lucky my hisding spot sucked.  is there actually a good hiding spot in a hotel room? Im open to suggestions.

Canada is looking better and better every day. At least for the next few years – I just got my health insurance premium increased 20% and the rent has skyrocketed 40%. All this during a meltdown of the US financial markets.  What gives? Can someone please explain to me who in this economy can have their expenses rise in this way, along with the ridiculous amount of inflation.
Something is terribly off, especially since I am actually writing about Finances. I will try not to do it ever again but honestly something is very wrong with how things are progressing these days, and I dont think its on its way to getting better anytime soon.<br< Funny Dog Pictures
see more loldogs are funny dog pictures!
Maple Syrup and rice in bulk looks like it may be in my near future.

Hello Hulu

As much as I love Apple and my macbook pro. I have to say Im glad there are other products giving them a run for their money.  I all for a less restrictive DRM please. should prove to be a formidable foe for Itunes that should keep the flow of progress chuggin along!  Oh and is pretty awesome too. Those chinese really have a lock down on american television these days. 

Myspace? Do you have Facebook Envy?

14 03 2008

It would seem as the minutes turn myspace is turning into a mega version of facebook. While this may not be such a bad thing, the inevtiable is happening, people are switching to  far stabler platforms for their friendstering.
Its time myspace and News Corp put some effort into the abyssmal Myspace interface. Now if only they could shut down those stupid “Bud-Joint and Stalker software” ads Id be really happy.
Now if Facebook could just learn a thing or two from myspace for musicians Id be really happy.
