Chicago & SoCal trip Coming Together

leave a comment »

Hey everyone! I’m heading to Chicago later this month and San Diego/LA early August. I’ll be visiting some friends and doing some work. There’s also a good chance I may be in Vegas to visit an old High School buddy who just started his business there. Email me if you’ll be in the area(s)!

Frog & Centipede

leave a comment »

I was introducing a friend to Osho when I found this video I hadn’t seen yet. I totally loved it- for some reason it made me think of my parents and I’m positive they’ve seen me as both the frog and the centipede at different times. Enjoy!

Last night Kayla and I went to the Tony Shafrazi gallery for a special event. It was a great mix of everyone. Keith’s work was being shown throughout the space. Along with a wayward art dealer trying to sell me a Rothko, Michael Klug, Waris Ahluwalia, Alex Charriol, and many others were also there. Overall it was a great event (now I’m scouring the interwebs for shots while looking for the next event).

First Impressions

leave a comment »

People get too freaky about first impressions because they want their first to be the best. That’s stupid. Do you REALLY remember your first impression? It was your mom peeing on a stick – her reaction was probably “Ah shit! I’m pregnant! Now my life is ruined! Bah!”

Another first impression: your first physical appearance. Remember how that went? You kicked your mom from inside the womb and she got excited! She started showing everyone “Hey- this little asshat is kicking me! Awesome, right?!” Screw handshakes… I’m going to start kicking people in the nuts and punching them in the tit.

And finally: your first appearance to the outside world: it was childbirth. I don’t even have to go to THAT incident. You’re creating a huge mess, you’re screaming and crying, and you’re trying to tear out your mom’s guts with a rope you attached to your belly while you were eating all her food for the past 9 months. Yep- you definitely made a great first impression there! Imagine an adult walking in to a restaurant with that kind of stage presence…

Needless to say- the world opened its doors to you despite having some terrible ways of presenting yourself. So if you are worried about making a bad first impression: you’re clearly an idiot. Just get your stuff done and stop worrying what others think.

Rex Roland: The Loser Teacher

His email: rex.roland@bcsemail.org
The Principals email: pam.fourtenbary@bcsemail.org

This is why people avoid public schools. The most awful part: notice the words are outlined in green marker. I have a feeling the student did that which suggests she spent extra time focusing her energy on those words. Child abuse, anyone?!

No, you certainly can’t.

Last words spoken by John F. Kennedy in reply to Nellie Connally, wife of Governor John Connelly, commenting “You certainly can’t say that the people of Dallas haven’t given you a nice welcome, Mr. President.
