Last night’s Paul McCartney Farewell to Candlestick Park concert was beautiful

Back when this concert was confirmed, I immediately bought tickets. I didn’t even know if I was going to go, but I knew I would find a way. At the time I was unemployed, so there was an uncertainty to this. But nevertheless, despite all the busyness of life, I flew back to the Bay the morning of the concert, ready to go to the last event ever at Candlestick Park and to see Paul McCartney one last time.

My dad and I took the secret way to Candlestick. We parked and walked our one mile to the stadium. This was the route that I took to the 49ers games when I was a writer. I would turn on Jamestown because I had a parking pass. But as a fan, this second route is the way to go. Now that the stadium is being blown up, now it’s cool to use this route one last time.

PHOTOS I TOOK FROM THE DAY

When we got there I marveled at the idea that this would be the last time I would be here. I had already bid my farewell at the last 49ers game here. Little did I know I would be back one last time.

I’m finally going to see Tom Petty in concert!!!

Last night I got wind of Tom Petty doing a show with the Heartbreakers and Steve Winwood in San Jose. I got an email telling me that I can do a pre-sale with a code. I can’t make it back to San Jose but I love Tom Petty.

I decided that maybe I can buy tickets, sell them online and maybe use that profit to buy a ticket to a show he’s doing in LA. So this morning I did that. I bought two of the cheapest tickets. They were $66.50 each. I then threw them on StubHub at almost double the value. I might drop the prices later on as these tickets are just going on sale. But for now, let’s see how much this will cost me.

Watched ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ in theaters for the first time ever

I’ve seen this at home numerous times as a kid. From the VHS to the DVD and now I own the Blu-Ray. But there is something special about watching a movie in a theater.

Today I went to Playhouse 7 in Pasadena to see it. There were so many jokes as a kid I missed that I caught this time around. The sound was great. The picture was great. The entire movie was a blast.

The crowd was loving it and it was real fun to watch. I love this movie and am so glad I got to see it in a theater.

My afternoon with MC Jin was a huge blessing from God

It all started with a simple question. And any other Sunday, I would have missed the question.

This past weekend was very busy for me. I was running around from my new job, to V3con’s opening awards ceremony, to an all day adventure with more V3con and the Back to the Future screening. Physically I was drained. So the very next morning, I wasn’t feeling all too energetic. I decided to just take it easy in the morning, not rush out of the house for the men’s Sunday School at 9:30am. I knew I would just show up a little later, but I needed to just rest a little bit more in the morning.

As I was looking through Facebook, I saw the above post. Had I left my house at 9:30 like I normally do, I would have not seen it. But I did see this post and I dropped MC Jin an email.

“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.

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

Samuel:

YES!!!!!

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…
