That was it

Well, after two years, it’s done. It sucks, but I have left. On to the next thing. I don’t know what that is. But I get some time to rest.

Uncertainty again!

I think one of the craziest things about my career is that it’s ever changing. Whether or not it’s my position or the assignments I do, it’s always changing. Most times these things are unpredictable but that’s what I love about my job. It’s not your M-F, 9-5 kind of deal. Every day is different. The hours are different. It’s fun.

So I sit here wondering what is my next step. I’ve gotten real far and I know I got the skills. But where do I go from here? I think that maybe I’ll figure it out soon. But until then, I know where I stand and where I’ll go.

To be continued and onward and upward. Life’s good because God is good.

BTW, I can’t wait to head back to the Bay this weekend. Oh yeah!!!

“Hello Kitty” by Avril Lavigne is racist? I am not sure about that

I heard about it but I didn’t even see the video until today. I knew there was a controversy to this video but I didn’t know what it was. Halfway through the video I read the comments and found out that people thought it was racist. While watching the video, I didn’t even realize it was racist. Therefore, was it really racist or people finding an excuse to be mad at something?

Avril Lavigne has been one of my favorite artists since her debut. I actually have the entire debut album memorized. Lately, her style and music hasn’t been to my digging but that’s OK. This new album, which I have listened to already, is not bad. This song I was already familiar with before the music video came out. So I knew what was possible if this song had a video.

SportsCenter doesn’t consider Derrick Thomas an NFL legend

Derrick Thomas is a Hall of Famer. He was drafted No. 4 overall in 1989. He was one of the greatest pass rushers in the history of the game. He is a football legend.

SportsCenter, however, doesn’t think he is a legend. They completely ignored him in the above tweet.

Shame on you.

Warriors didn’t play well, but Clippers fans remain swagless

I went to Game 2. Warriors got owned. But even for a playoff game, the crowd was not as loud as I thought.

Maybe I am spoiled since the Warriors have the best playoff crowd in all of basketball, but there just wasn’t enough loud cheers and super excitement. Staples Center was kinda filled with swagless Clippers fans. That is, if they really are Clippers fans.

But anyway, what a shame the Warriors lost. But they did take one of the Clips’ home games, which is all I could ask for. Now back to Oracle.

Let’s go!

Happy Easter!

He is Risen!

The people need the resurrected Jesus. A Jesus who walks around and does miracles but lives on a normal life afterward is not the Jesus the people need.

The people need a Messiah. They need a Savior. The people need a Jesus to break the chains of sin that was holding all from God.

The people need a Jesus who had to conquer sin. The people need a Jesus who lived among us, suffered among us and died for all of us.

Without the death and resurrection, there would be no eternal salvation. We would still be lost and have no connection with God.

Jesus brought that. He fulfilled that promise with His resurrection. That is what we needed. We have it. We celebrate it.

Happy Easter! It’s a celebration of our eternal salvation in God. Thank you Jesus for dying for us.

Good Friday: Jesus wants you no matter how much you’ve screwed up


Today is Good Friday and we remember the death of Jesus Christ. But also, it’s a celebration because it is Jesus fulfilling His promise to give us eternal life. It’s a good day. That’s why we call it Good Friday.

One of my favorite parts of the Good Friday story actually is Jesus’ conversation with two criminals that hung with Him on the cross. It’s a simple story, but a powerful one that still sticks with me to this day.

While onlookers hurled insults at Jesus, mocking Him for proclaiming to be the Messiah, one of the criminals spoke to Jesus.

‘Batman-Superman’ Movie to Be Scored By Hans Zimmer



Originally posted on Variety:

A lot is still under wraps for Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Batman-Superman” movie, but it looks like Hans Zimmer will return to score the upcoming sequel.

Zimmer told Digital Spy that he will begin working on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” follow-up once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (Nolan evidently kept the sci-fi film’s plot a secret from his longtime composer).

“We’ve already had a couple of chats and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about, I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” Zimmer, who most recently scored Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” said.

Zimmer is no stranger to the Batman universe, having penned the music to Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. However, he said the experience only…

Last night’s awesome experience at the A’s-Angels game

One of the great things about going to Anaheim to watch the Angels and A’s play is that A’s fans show up and they are so loud.

Seeing my good buddy Jeff there was something I was glad to do. Last time the A’s were in town we sat next to each other, got some TV time, and really had a ball. I went with two other friends but I made sure I found him. And look at us, we ended up wearing the same shirt.

The game was a fun one and it had its ups and downs. Angels fans aren’t very loud per usual but when the home run from Jaso cleared the wall, the place went dead silent and then the A’s fans erupted. The dejection was so sweet.

Coco Crisp


It’s humbling to see someone say that my work is their inspiration.

Covelli “Coco” Crisp. A’s leadoff hitter, center fielder, and fan favorite. He has one bobblehead made by the A’s, but it is a “Bernie Leaning” bobblehead. He also has a gnome coming out on June 22 as well. But i prefer to have a bobblehead of him in a gametime pose. so, here it is.

Coco (before)





the only SGA (stadium giveaway) bobblehead i found of Coco Crisp was a 2005 release of him as a Cleveland Indian. it took me some time to buy one off of eBay because these were fairly rare to find for the right price. but once i found one, it was off to the races to transform him into the Green and Gold.

Game Plan:

1. Sand off Indians logos

2. Sand off jersey sleeve lines (the vest jersey lines showed)

3. Sand off base logos

4. Paint batting helmet, jersey, and base

5. Apply…
