Last night, my friends Henry and Max, went down to San Jose to see Fleetwood Mac. This was something I had planned for sometime and the basis of my trip to the Bay was to come up and see this band. I had know about Mac for the longest time but never really got full appreciation for them until maybe a couple years ago.
CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS TO THE SHOW HERE
The crowd was mostly older people but it was nice to see younger cats at the arena. And with Fleetwood Mac as the only act of the evening, I knew it would be a good show. But I didn’t expect them to do three hours with two encores. But they did because for Lindsey and Stevie, they were back in San Jose and that was something special to me.
The evening started with a very upbeat rendition of “Second Hand News” which got everyone excited. You could clearly see the excitement in the band. Even though they are doing a live, grueling international tour, I just felt that being back home energized them.
There’s always money in the banana stand.
They’re touring props from “Arrested Development” around LA and today they had the banana stand near work. I got there at around 5:30 and waited in line for about an hour. There was a good buzz of people, some wearing the banana stand shirt getting excited. The entire thing was free, with everyone getting a Mr. Manager name tag and free chocolate frozen bananas.
Earlier in the day, the secretary (played by Judy Greer) was there. I don’t wanna say goodbye to those. Too bad I missed her. She’s kinda pretty. Anyway, I got there and it was cool seeing all the excitement. The stand was there. They had two workers in the stand (posing with the fist to chin look) and a guy in a banana suit.
Really cool and some people got posters. Overall, I am happy the show is returning. Glad I got a chance to do this.
PHOTOS FROM MY ADVENTURES RIGHT HERE
The New Era Store in LA had this promotion where the first 50 people in line will get to meet Big Boi and get his CD for free, and autographed. It began at 4PM, so I showed up at 2PM. Only three people ahead of me. By the time 4PM rolled along, barely 50 people were there. I only knew about this via the store’s Twitter. Not so good promotion.
Big Boi was nice, signing his CD and my copy of Stankonia. He loved that I brought Stankonia. I couldn’t take a picture with him because I’d hold the line but he took a photo with me after the entire thing.
He arrived in a big bus with his image on it. Killer Mike was there but I didn’t recognize him. But anyway, good stuff it was cool to meet Big Boi. PHOTOS HERE.
Reflections on an amazing season.

That’s it. I’m done with it. I’m sick and tired of telling people that what they’re doing is a sin. It means nothing.
(Actually, that’s not really true. But you’ll get my point as you continue to read.)
But as the world keeps changing and my fascination with human behavior continues to grow, I start to notice how the Christian faith somehow connects with the world. But actually in many, how it fails to communicate with the world.
I never liked Abercrombie & Fitch. I had no reason to.
Their clothes don’t fit me. Their models don’t look like me. They can’t afford light bulbs. Pre-ripped jeans are stupid. Oh, and they made a shirt with the above image.
I never knew about this company’s existence until college. Then in the malls I would see the store and felt that these people were the scums of the fashion world. Then this comes out about how the company specifically targets a small demographic.
That prompted this viral video.
So it’s set. I finally have my flights booked. It sucks that I waited this long to find the best deal on my return flight. It’s expensive!!!
May 21-24 are the dates I am back home. Good stuff, I hope to be able to get back and catch up. I’ll be in SJ mainly since I got a Fleetwood Mac concert on the 22nd.
I’ll see friends, do some dinnering with the SJ people. Then on the 24th, my mom’s graduation before I have to fly back to LA. This is tough, but I gotta do that with the fact I have to work the following day at 3am. It is what it is, I suppose. Let’s go!
