Here are four videos that have made somewhat of an impact in these past few days. Their message is rather similar, various perspectives. It could be quick to forget to be in touch within ourselves.
Not a fan of the Foo Fighters much, but man Dave Grohl, your speech is quite something.
And he is a coffee junkie, I knew it. As I get older, I’ve truly begun to understand the meaning of the parallel between men and good wine.
Anyways, hope you enjoy the following as much as I did:
Get to the serious, by focusing on the silly

Anchor California Lager
Im such a proud Californian, but that is known. Anchor Steam Lager’s label is just so beautiful, I want a patch, a shirt, I don’t know I really really want something with that label on!
Also, I recently had the pleasure to learn tons about beer in great company with Kristin y la CTX, more on that later.
I was writing about starting over
“Back then I wrote about my dog, my bike +my dad. 20 yrs later I was at it again; drums, the guitar, to the coffee maker. I was writing about starting over”
Dealing with a tragic loss leaves the deepest of scars no one can possibly describe, I wish it to no one yet there is an immediate bond when a mutual human condition is exposed, and so vulnerable.
This speech hit hard and perhaps some unspoken feelings that are quite impossible to describe.
Here is the link to the video, also available in audio form:
Dave Grohl’s SXSW 2013 Keynote Speech (46minutes)
And if you’ve read this far I wanted to thank you; and I’m glad I have this creative outlet and that in very small bits, I am able to somehow express myself and share some things, Etc. My life has changed, and everything changes. And I don’t know what else to say.
Have a good week, I’ll go get me some coffee now.
And another bike stolen from the Inner Richmond(!!)
Same garage from the blue trek1000, now a foldable cute blue tricycle.
“this bike was also stolen out of the same garage as the blue bike in the top picture. was going to be used in a wedding this year. please help!”

I have heard on +off about the possibility of Adobe Books closing. I found out today on twitter, I think, that a group of people fundraised 60K+ for Adobe books to be saved; that is impressive!
My exexexex-roommate, the fabulous Evan, worked there and he was super. I spent plenty of time in between school/home there, hanging out, talking, reading, or waiting for Evan. Or years later coming in to check if he was in that day. Or if he was back from NYC. Our rent was about 400$ea. near Atlas café. Oh I miss him! If anyone knows if he still is in the city, let me know as he is super anti- technology/cell phones.
Anyways, here is a picture of me waiting for him. This was taken by mi amiga Yvonne at Adobe about a decade ago.
