Went to Calgary last week to visit my cousin Mark and see some friends.
Had us a blast. Hung out with the Russell's and had some killer Calgary prime rib.
Also got to hang out and drink giant beer globes with my pals Dave and Charley from Fubar

Another youtube vid shot at the pacific pinball expo.
It's pretty shaky but it runs threw the game and shows the detail pretty good.

When I was in Ottawa I dug threw some of my old junk stored at the folks house.
I found these jems, tapes that I bought back in the day that survived all this time.
The AC$DC Powerage I listened to every day on my walkman. All threw one hellish winter when I was 16 working at the Dirty Bird. (KFC) I guess the real cool thing about these is that they are the actual tapes I bought back then and not a nostalgic e bay score or thrift store find. In a way, to me they are priceless. I still listen to this stuff, I never stopped. It's just cool to see it in this format again.

Picked up the Satellite the other day.
I'm pretty darn stoked with the gears Eric Jonson put in my car.
It's street violence.

An essential album.

It's a cold night for alligators
It's a cold night for dogs
The dogs choke on their barking
When they see alligator persons in the bog and fog

8 years

Just realized today this is my 8th year in San Francisco.
When I first came here is was to do murals and paint the hell out of Metallica's studio.
I was here for 6 moths and pretty much never left. Soon after I met a girl in a little boutique on Haight st. She told me she was from NY and tried to sell me pants. Her name was Oriana, we got married.
It's been a good decade.

j and e grosery

I have some friends From Rochester NY and it just so happens I grew up in Ottawa Canada where we got Rochester TV. The best being the commercials. House of guitars, Wegmans and J&E groceries.
We used to recite the J&E Grocery commercials "and the weekly specials are…"
When researching J&E the first thing I found was this blog and it made me laugh.
He basically did the most kick ass J&E grocery blog so I figured I would just link it with a quot.

cricketbread blog
"My brother and I would make fun of the commercials all the time, and it was impossible to say J&E Grocery without saying the full address. It was something about the guy’s voice in the commercial that made it impossible to separate it. There are many, many people that I know who grew up with these commercials as well as a handful of bloggers who have had the same observation. This was, in my opinion, a genius piece of marketing. This corner store with a limited advertising budget puts out these crappy ads with crappy pictures and with a guy you could barely understand, and here I am writing about it a million years later. Most businesses only dream about having that kind of marketing meme in place. When you said the name you had to say the address…"

a decade of dirty bee

I did this in 2000. I know because I signed it '2000. Otherwise I don't think I would have remembered when the hell I did it.
In the 90's you could not get a Dodge Super Bee T shirt anywhere so I sat down and drew my own rendition. Motor brands now carries the super bee and other mopar T's.
I guess this is my new year post. Happy 10 years of Dirty Bee.
