I miss you, George Harrison

Today is the 11th anniversary of the death of George Harrison. This really blows me away as I can still remember the news of his death as a teenager.

I grew up a huge Beatles fan and immediately after his death, I bought his debut solo album “All Things Must Pass”. I must say that out of all the Beatles, he was my favorite because he had an intelligence and perspective of life that the others had yet to see. He was a great lyricist and his guitar skills is so underrated.

I am going to listen to a bunch of his music right now. I miss him.

I hate cops. But every now and then, you encounter a really good one. This is one of those stories.

Let’s go have an adventure in Palm Springs

Into the mouth of a T-Rex like Pee Wee Herman!

With a day off from work, I went to go see my friend Ryan who lives two hours away in Palm Springs. It’s a mini Hollywood with a huge old people and gay community. It’s nice but not a place I would like to live in. But there were some pretty cool things that we did.

I got there at noon and we ate at Tyler’s Burgers. SOLID burger with lots of meat. Very delicious and I am glad that we ate there.

Following, we took some pictures with status like Sonny Bono, Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe.

CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS HERE

And what made this so exciting was that it was just a small little place in the middle of nowhere that had a lot of little shops going around. I liked it.

SJSU football’s 10 wins, an awesome swan song and all the goodies of going bowling

Samuel:

So cool for SJSU football!!!

Isn’t this awesome?

San Jose State football finished with a 10-2 record after their win over Louisiana Tech. It was the program’s first 10-win season since 1987. LA Tech had defeated SJSU in their past five meetings and Tech was actually ranked in the Top 25 this year.

But SJSU now can go dummy. They finish in second place in the WAC’s final season. It’s a bittersweet farewell to the conference as SJSU goes to the Mountain West, but this season was fantastic for the conference’s swan song. A thrilling football game between two of college football’s rising programs.

It’s pretty crazy that the last time SJSU was in a bowl game was in 2006. They barely were a good team that year, but they won enough games and went to the New Mexico Bowl. I don’t know what’s in store for SJSU, but I really hope I can go and watch…

Thinking of Thanksgiving, we got it good

LOL turkey

This will be the first ever Thanksgiving for me where I won’t be with family. I have work today. But I think the fact that I am not with my family today is a good reminder of the things I am thankful for. I am not at home because of my job. This job is something that I should not have. So very few people in my line of work would be in this position.

But thank God that I got my 49ers gig out of college and three years of working my ass off got me here. Now I am doing something I am really good at and I am enjoying it.

It’s a tough thing too moving to LA not knowing anyone, but I have found a decent place to live and the surrounding is pretty nice. More importantly, a good church community. Things aren’t easy now, but I can’t complain. I got it good.

Can you read my mind?

Do you know what I’m thinking of? There’s so much going on in my mind right now. I’m not sure how all of this is possible. Only yesterday did you come into my life and swoop me from the sky. This can’t be real. How can a man catch me in mid-air with one arm and catch a helicopter in another? Am I dreaming all of this? This is probably when I should wake up from this wild fantasy.

But I can’t. You’re all I’ve been thinking of since I met you. I don’t know if you’ll ever tell me the answers to all the questions I have.

Do you know what it is that you do to me?

Feeling pretty gangster right now

So yesterday I saw the new “Lincoln” movie and the portrayal of Honest Abe was so good. The movie really made him look like a true OG and I think it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in some time.

And while I was thinking about the movie, the above song came up into my head and then it made me think about my own life and could I honestly say that I am a gangsta?

I think about it and I have to say the answer is yes.

Bob Melvin wins Manager of the Year Award and East Coast bias dies a little

Samuel:

My thoughts on the awesomeness.

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

There was real no debate in this in my opinion.

CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, C’MON! BOB MELVIN IS THE AMERICAN LEAGUE MANAGER OF THE YEAR!!

Let’s get the facts out on the table first on Bob Melvin’s 2012 season:

  • His first full season with the A’s.
  • The A’s were predicted to lose 100 games. They instead won 94.
  • Division champions.
  • Traded away three All-Star pitchers in offseason.
  • Two key veteran pitchers were lost for the season and team still won with all-rookie rotation.
  • Inept offense with platoons continued to get big hits.
  • Oh and by the way, the AL West was the toughest division out there.

With that said, Bob Melvin had to be the clear winner of the Manager of the Year voting. Not saying that Buck Showalter or Robin Ventura did bad jobs, but Melvin did more with less. And more importantly, he really made the Oakland A’s the…

“Wreck-It Ralph” made me smile and cry like a little kid

I finally saw the movie and I will make this brief because I am still digesting it. As a kid who grew up with arcades and video games, this movie was right up my alley. All the little references in the movie were so good, I had to laugh. The cops in the movies were donuts!

But what really got me was the fact that I was shedding a tear. I haven’t shed a tear in an animated film since Toy Story 3. But this one got me too. It was done so well and it was funny. And the story itself was really sweet and very true.

One thing that did irk me was that the voice actors looked just like their on screen characters. Or it’s the other way around, the characters looked like the voice actors. That’s fine and all but I keep seeing the voice actors throughout the whole movie. Tough for some scenes, but hey, whatever. Great movie. Go see now!
