I really enjoyed Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime performance

So here’s the thing. Before Sunday, I could only name two of Katy Perry’s songs. I never paid much attention to her but I always knew that she was very popular and had a lot of great hits. After beefing with her father, I was optimistic about her performance being a good show.

Call me a fan now. Well, let’s be specific. I am not a fan of Katy Perry’s music still. I think they are catchy, but this performance I am a fan of. Check it out. It started with a big gold lion. Wow! I actually know the song “Roar” and the final roar was phenomenal. What a spectacular way to start the show. It had all the visuals that really captured the audience.

When they transitioned to “California Gurls,” I was really excited. Check out how much she was enjoying herself. I think that is what made me like the performance so much. She was having fun. Other Super Bowl shows I see artists trying too hard. But for Katy, she was so into it that I liked it. Plus, did you see those sharks? Left shark was all out of sorts but I don’t care. The baked beach balls also were funny.

‘Chinese expert’ Darren Rovell gets his facts about the Chinese language wrong in ESPN article

This was posted by Darren Rovell of ESPN. On the surface level, it looks fine. But upon reading the article, I noticed something. I highlighted it.

It’s a common mistake. Mandarin is a dialect that is spoken but when written, it’s Chinese. It’s the same way of saying that the word “Warriors” is written in American. No, it’s in English. It’s just that it’s pronounced differently in America than it is in England.

And also, you can’t spell words that aren’t constructed by letters.

Knowing my bobbleheads are inspirational

The photo and the comments that came with it.

Hella humbled right now as a guy found my work on IG, then tells me that because of my custom bobblehead painting that he found online some time ago, he was inspired to do the same. And looking at his work, his stuff is super polished, way better than mine.

Earlier this week, I read a comment on one of my YouTube videos of customizing bobbleheads and did an email exchange with someone who also wanted to know how I did my work and what were the best tools and strategies to customize a bobblehead.

Truly humbled.

To all the people who are creative and have ideas, never give up. You never know how your imagination can inspire lives and change the world. Never stop thinking outside the box.

I drove all the way up to Bakersfield to see the Condors on Seinfeld night

Samuel:

This is how I spent my Saturday.

Last night I drove up to Bakersfield. I had never been there before and it was a two-hour drive I thought I would dread. Luckily I was going there because the ECHL Bakersfield Condors were hosting a Seinfeld night. I just had to go. My old college buddy Mark lives out there so it was good to catch up and enjoy some good Seinfeld fun.

Before that, we stopped by Red House BBQ in Tehachapi. Delicious!!!

Brisket with mac & cheese, fried pickles and a piece of the Indian taco bread.

After that, we chilled for a bit before heading out to the game. I didn’t know what to expect. They had a rickshaw race and a costume competition that never actually happened. It was a bummer that not a lot of people showed up. Do they not like Seinfeld?

A’s disappoint in postseason again but I’m OK

The game of baseball is fun. You have highs and lows when cheering for a team. But that’s why I love the game. There are no guarantees and there is so much unpredictability. I just witnessed one of the greatest baseball postseason games of all time. Bummed that the A’s lost. But I still love this game.

There are hopes and expectations to this team and the game. But I don’t expect them to owe anything back to me. It’s just a game. There are things out of my control and things I can’t predict.

That’s why I watch. Because you never know what can happen. It’s a result I didn’t like but I knew these things can happen as a fan. We’ll see how next year goes for this team.

I may have unintentionally deceived the Internet with my #RE2PECT tweet

Samuel:

OK, I am pretty proud of my unintentional viral photo.

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

This didn’t happen. I photoshopped it. It was an idea that popped into my head during Derek Jeter’s last home game. There were discussions of how Jeter had a double that helped start the rally to tie the game at 2-2 in the first inning.

The constant talking about his number and the hashtag #RE2PECT gave me an idea. So I awaited the top of the second inning and looked at the pitch count. Then I awaited for the actual possibility of the influx of 2s to appear. It never happened. But I wanted it to happen. With all this talk of 2s and how everyone is praising Jeter for all the wrong reasons, I opened up my Photoshop, grabbed some screenshots from the game, then just made it myself.

I didn’t think much…
