Bay Adventure!

Metric was playing in Oakland on the 24th, so Love, Austin, Kirby, Jello, Kacey, and I decided to venture down to the bay to witness this fine event. On the 24th, Kacey and I woke up early to drive down to Reno to fix my car a little bit. We then met up with Jello and some of his friends to snowboard at Boreal. After that we hit the road and hit traffic a few times on the way down BOOOOO. We got to our hotel which was a very classy maze of a tiny hotel. Kirby and Jellos room had a window that look across the hall into another rooms window - CREEPY.

We all went out to the show at the Fox theatre and got our drunk on! Metric played and was absolutely incredible! talk about hot babes! wooo emily is a hot babe! They played more of their new stuff off fantasies than anything , but they did play Empty, and Dead Disco, and encored with Monster Hospital! YAY. Even though the band was flawless, the crowd sucked. We all felt like we were the only ones in the crowd that had known about Metric prior to the show.

After the show we wanted two things... Beer and Food. So we started asking locals where to go, many told us to go to Radio to get our drunk on even further. So we started walking the streets of Oakland, sketchy ass Oakland. After wandering for a while we decided to stop at a Classy Marriot Hotel and ask for advice. A black security guard told us that we should go to a Chicken and waffles restraunt, how awesomely stereotypical is that?

We continued wandering the streets, saw many many hipsters on their bikes, and soon we almost were ran over by a chollo on his bike, as he almost ran us into the concrete he yells " Get out of the way Faggots!! " so all of us start calling him a fag! Great comeback, I know.

We finally ventured back to the fox, where we found a bar across the street, so decided to grab a beer, soon after the bar closed, so we were back on the streets, we decided to run back to the hotel and call it a night. As we turned on our street where the hotel was we saw RADIO... ironic.... We did not go in...

The next morning woke up bright and early again to move our cars so they would not get towed, found an amazing hole in the wall coffee joint, and drove into San Fran.

This is an awesome car we saw on our way to the bay.

This is a average car that Kacey accidentally took a picture of instead... goob


After the show good and Drunk

Austin and I drunkenly searching for a place to go and get our party on with phone's

This place was acrost the street from the Fox and we all got a kick out of that!

Love and Austin


Then we decided to wander the city of Oakland till we found a party

Oakland is a religious place, surprising

Oaksterdam University... Turns out this place is all about teaching kids how to grow and sell weed - sooo funny that this was right next to a Christian Book store.

We then found this sweet bar that just so happened to be right acrost from the Fox. So bummed.

Drunkenly decided to party in the hallway of our hotel

Kacey was not tall enough to join the party.

The next day we decided to go into San Fran and go to Ashbury and Haight

Ashbury and Haight

Went Thirft store shopping all day.. great findings such as a Giant Velvet Vagina..

Austin getting Classy

Found a 10 legged spider, Thank you to whoever Killed you!

Kacey did not approve

Then we went to the beach WOOO

Kacey had never seen Sand Dollars that were not imported to the East Coast.

Jello throwing stinking sandy sox before the long drive back

Metal (Degrading Religion)

What is more metal than Jordan lighting the Mormom Bible on fire in the middle of a party?

Jordan lighting the Mormom Bible on fire while listening to Iron Maiden thats what.

A good quote by the Dalai Llama, out of his book "Ethics for the New Millennium."

"The only clear thing is that we humans are the one species with the power to destroy the earth as we know it. The birds have no such power, nor do the insects, nor does any mammal. Yet if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, so too do we have the capacity to protect it."

This is how I feel about man-kind

Finger update!

Today I was able to pull off my bandage after getting 8 stitches... needless to say I was excited to see the carnage! Here is what it looks like after 2 days.

Also I have been listening to straight metal before and after the finger incident, and not once but twice has the most metal number of all appeared in my life, so I had to snap a shot of both times :

This one was at Garwoods during a raffle - Awesome

Anatomy Lesson

Today was a day off and I went shredding at the star with Kacey for a few runs before she had work. After that I was riding with basically everyone. Keith, Fancy, Danyale, Brenden, Colton, Durrell, Blake, Xander, Jen, Spence! everyone was out.

After a very long day of snowboarding and having fun, I decided to go pack up all of my belongings and throw them into my car (my new house). In doing so I decided to put my back seats down before Andy even knew I was at the house.

I accidentally slammed my fold down back seats on my right ring finger. I kept it pressed down for a while then realized how much pain I was in, and looked at my finger... I could see my bone... I immediately freaked out and ran into the house screaming. Asked Andy what he thought, and he told me I needed stiches... so I went to the E.R.

I then found out that my finger was FUCKED UP and need 8 stiches...

the doctor scared me twice... by when he cleaned out the wound and started freaking out and yelling for help. So I looked at my finger and saw a pool of blood on the bed and all over the place.

Then he scared me by saying "I hope you know you will probably lose your finger.... nail" What a jerk for pausing that long!

here are some pics

Eviction Notice : currently Homeless

If your Dad ever buys you a house in the Tahoe area, and you gain a few friends/roommates in your Fathers house that you consider your very own and claim that at 24 you bought it by yourself... then this is what you should right to your roommates when you cannot grow enough balls to talk to them about how you feel, instead of being a mature adult and trying to talk it out... WRITE THIS and ruin all your friendships :

Dear David,

When I bought my house I knew that I would be in a position to provide rooms to some of my friends for the snowboard season. I also knew that i would be able to do a huge favor for them by asking for minimal rent in return. I also knew that i would be able to provide everything for them, as in a bed, laundry machines, pots and pans, plates, glasses, and silverware, etc. What i was unprepared for was how trying it would be on my psyche. What you may not know is that i have lived alone my entire adult life and have not had a roommate since i was 18. That being said, I have developed many habits and have gotten very used to things being done in a very particular manner. When the opportunity presented itself for me to have rommates this winter i jumped on it, not because i was lonely or couldn't afford to live alone anymore, but rahter because i wanted to have that experience as an adult. I have learned a lot about myself over the months that you have been living here. I have been tried and tested and put into a situation that i have found completely un-enjoyable and one that i do not find comfortable at all. It is a situation where i have to balance being your friend, being a disciplinarian and where i have to to make choices that i know could cause permanent damage to friendships that i would rather not have harmed. It seems to me, from my perspectice at least, that i have to walk very delicately in my own house; that in many cases to keep the peace i have to tread very lightly on many topics and it makes mefeel like a guest in my own house. It is an awkward feeling to walk through the front door of a house that you own and feel like you are a guest. I miss the feeling of permanence that my house gave me before yo moved in, a feeling that i thought no one could ever take away from me. Over the summer, and in the fall before you moved in, my house was my sanctuary: a place I could come to relax to feel completely stress free no matter what was going on outside; it was an incredible feeling and i have lost that.
It is with great regret that i would please ask you to find new residences before this month is over. If you find new places to live before the 12th and all of your stuff is out, you will not have to pay me anything for march. I will only ask you to pay half month if you are out by the 20th and a full months rent if you are here a full month. I am asking you to do this because i fear what will happen to our friendships if i do not. You both are rather important people in my life and I would likefor it to stay that way, and unfortunately those feelings will not stay if you continue to live here. I feel very privileged that i can refer to both of you as great friends and would never want that to change. I have learned a lot about both of you, and mostly myself from this experience and I am very glad that it happened but it cannot continue. Ultimately i want my sanctuary back and the feeling that comes with it. I need to atleast spend some time alone in my house before i can consider having roommates again. I sincerely hope that you do not think less of me after reading this, and that our friendships will remain intact.
I feel terrible about this being a necessity, but unfortunately that is the truth. Let me know how i can help with anything you need.

all the best,

In this world, we as human beings desire to find meaning in everything we do. Whether it is for pride, religion, or for someone else, we struggle to find hope in things, and to find comfort in other things. There are many words that we have created to not only express our feelings, but to define our daily lives.

Home... what do you think of when you hear this word? Usually a comfy bed, family, a place you grew up, or a place you reside currently. However "Home" is just a word.

I have always been happy to have a "home" in the house I grew up in, in the city I grew up in. When I moved up here I moved around A LOT! I've been in crappy living situations, and in the past year and a half have done a whole lot.

It is recently that I have realized I no longer want a home... I do not have a place to sleep or store my belongings. I have many chances of finding a place to do this... and I will eventually, but right now nothing sounds better than throwing my stuff into my car and floating from floor to floor. My reason for doing this is because I have had some horrible roommates, lived in some horrible house's (as in falling a part). My last house especially was not good for me. I feel that I was forced into that house to maintain a friendship which is no longer... Since day one I did not want to be in my last house, I have actually been looking for a new house since I moved in, but none compared to the cheap cost of living.

I will continue to look for a new place to live... but I am not worried about if I find one or not. I will more than likely float until summer time.

Home is just a word, you can find comfort on the streets if needed... which I might.

Thank you to all my friends who have helped me during these past few days and who have offered their floors... I LOVE YOU VERY VERY MUCH!
