I’ve posted this song on my Facebook, but not on here. I heard somebody blasting this song at the Raiders game on Sunday and I was just laughing. I’ve heard this song before, but it was weird hearing it at a tailgate.
I introduce to you, Tim Wilson.
Skip the first ten seconds.
On a serious note, “Phase Two” for Marvel has begun. The Iron Man 3 trailer was released early this morning. I watched it three times and I still have no idea what to expect.
May 2013 is so far away, I can’t wait!!
It’s Tuesday and I’m already tired. I have to keep it moving though.

Do you know what today is? October 19, 2012. When some networks say 10/19 they don’t mean 10/19. Abed say’s it best, “…where to put 10/19?”
“It’s a feeling within us all” – Abed”
Today was supposed to be the greatest day ever. Not anymore, NBC decided against showing Community today, further postponing it. No love for one of the best shows since Arrested Development. When it comes back, I’ll be waiting. Until then I’ll re-watch the DVD’s.
I have a
tiring long weekend in store. It should be fun and I’m pretty stoked.
I shall take my talents to Berkeley to watch Stanford and Cal for The 115th Big Game. It’s weird to watch a rivalry game so early in the season. With the creation of the Pac-12 Network and scheduling issues, this game got the short end of the stick. Not only is the game early in the season, it’s also start early – Noon. I always felt that rivalry games should be played at night. The issues with TV contracts led this game to start at Noon.
Oakland will be the place to be for about ten hours. The Jags and the Raiders will do battle. This game is winnable for the Raiders, along with the next two. If they handle business, they can be at 4-4 at the midway point. That is asking for a lot, so I have my hopes on very low.
Congratulations to the Cardinals for being one win away from the World Series! The Giants lose this series because they left about twenty men on base in Game 3.
The past two nights have been nothing but throwback music at the second job.
Here’s something for your ears…and eyes.

That’s how I feel today. It’s unfortunate because it is a very nice day. We all have these type of days, regardless of what the weather is like.
I want to share something. A nice, chill Sunday morning spot.
This place is located in San Francisco and it is DELICIOUS. It’s a restaurant with a cafe feel. It’s a bit pricey but it’s worth it. I can’t wait to eat Toast in a couple of weeks. If you go, YOU WANT the Church Street Omelet. I’ll leave it at that.
Speaking of SF, still in the planning stages for the adventure in two weeks.
Since it’s on my mind…
Happy Tuesday Folks.

FINALLY, one of my favorite teams won a game. Granted, USC did not start the game well last night. They gave up 14 points in a span of three minutes against Utah. Utah was one of three teams I was scared to face this year. The trip to the Pacific Northwest is always a problem for USC. This year they are headed to the University of Washington. The last team?The home game against Oregon.
What a week it has been. Since SUNDAY, my Raiders lost, the Angels didn’t make the playoffs and the icing on the cake? BOTH division rivals(Rangers and A’s) made the playoffs. I work with Giants and A’s fans. I can’t wait for this postseason to be over. Like I mentioned before, the quicker the A’s and Giants get eliminated, I’ll be happy again.
This weekend should be a good one. Bay Area trip and just relaxing. I’m also taking a breaking a break from drinking. That’s how messed up this week has been.
I’m keeping this post short and sweet. It’s Friday. I’ll be back better than ever next week.
After reading my guest post, Josh said I have many female friends. Yes, it’s true.
My only respectable response?
Yeah, I’m that awesome.
Have a good weekend!

Amazing, we all celebrate once Friday/the weekend arrives and before you know it – BAM! – it’s over. I’m happy, regardless of how quick the weekend always goes.
The second job has killed me this week, chaotic. A small part of me wants to play the sick card tonight. I won’t because they would not appreciate that one bit..
As happy as I am for the weekend, I still have to do more manual labor. This weekend will be known as, “Moving Weekend”.
Saturday, I shall take my muscle to the Jackson area.
Sunday, I shall take my muscle to the Bay Area.
The only TWO bright spots for the weekend will be the Raiders game on Sunday
This show is AMAZING.
It’s stories that we read, when we were young, on the tube.
Keeping it mild today.
I wish I had some of this right now…
Soon enough, hopefully.
No rest for the weary. Don’t let my negativity bring down your day.
Remember, it’s the weekend so….

So the Endeavour made its trip over Sacramento today. Apparently it was the talk of the town, because pictures of the shuttle dominated my Facebook and Twitter page. I didn’t know it was a big deal. If I knew, I would’ve made time to see it. Of course, history repeated itself. I thought of Coachella. You know, Coachella, the return of Tupac. No?
Tupac made an appearance this past summer during the first weekend at Coachella.
When people first heard about it , they were going nuts!!!
Then the second weekend of Coachella happened, people were like “Eh”.
Safe to say that I feel the same way about this situation. Ever since the journey began, it has been in the media. For me, this was MY second weekend of Coachella.
Enough hating, my television shows are back! The Office and Parks and Recreation. I missed Parks and Rec., but I was able to watch The Office. I know The Office has been a downer since the great Michael Scott left, but the show keeps me laughing so I can’t complain.
I wish Kevin’s bit was available on YouTube because his efforts saving a turtle was awesome.
Here are three words to live by, courtesy of Parks & Rec, for the weekend.
I told the blog world what I will be doing on Sunday in my last past. If you missed the post, I’ll be doing some Tailgating at the Raiders Game.
I just got word that Raider legend Marcus Allen will be lighting the Al Davis flame also. He should get a nice crowd reaction.
Yeah, he signed it for me.
Saturday? I have no clue. I will just be going with the flow. For now, I’m just counting down the time when my shift comes to a close.
My Friday Favorite Video?
The joy of one-hit wonders.
Enjoy the weekend!

I took a break from the blog. It has been a busy two weeks and I had to sacrifice something. I’m back though, better than ever. I must warn you that I won’t be back until Wednesday. When I come back I shall break down what has been going on. It will include: drinking in SF, football in Berkeley and hanging out in Sacramento. Each one was pretty amazing.
After I post, I will be GONE. I will be out-of-town, it’s been a while since I was able to just get away. I thought to myself, what would be perfect for this. This legend came to mind.
Had to keep it clean for the kids.

The best thing about working from 9pm-5am? The co-workers. Times are hard right now for everybody. The States are at a stage in which you have to take whatever job you can get. You have to have some major discipline to work a graveyard shift. Not just regular discipline, mental discipline. You have to be committed, dedicated to the job. You also need to have a open-mind. It’s one thing to go to your “normal” 9-5 and just go with the motions if somebody is having a bad day. In the graveyard world? You have no idea what you are getting yourself into. People have already had problems during the day AND they still haven’t got to work yet. Dealing with surprises EVERY NIGHT has helped me have a open-mind about people.
Normally, my first paragraph sets up the rest of my entry, not this time. Honestly, I just wanted to show love to my graveyard counterparts. It’s really hard to do that. It’s really, REALLY difficult when you have two jobs. You are working around the clock, averaging about four hours of sleep per day. As I think about it, if I only had one job, I probably would average four hours of sleep anyway.
My blog, my rules. My friend told me that I post a lot of alcohol pictures. Forgive me if I enjoy a tasty beverage. Want to know something? I got home a bit early this morning from work and I had a small glass of…
If you really want to get creative, try this with Apple Juice. I tried it before and I couldn’t feel my limbs after a while.
(I may enjoy alcohol a bit too much.)
For the record, that was about 2:30am. It’s called “bar just closed I have booze at my place”on the weekend.
I’m going back a bit, with TWO VIDEOS. Rock The Bells is this weekend and I can’t go unfortunately. My friend is going and I’m jelly (Short for jealous, like it?). The lineup is literally a blast from the past. Should be awesome. Three people I really wanted to see.
Numero one, he (and the special guest) is still going strong….
Nas performing should be pretty good.
The main person I really wanted to see???
DMX is very talented and it’s unfortunate that he is always getting in trouble. Now that I think about it, I hope he makes it this weekend.
Can’t wait to go home and take a nap. I’m more of a nap person.

Time to switch things up. Yesterday I went emotional (I’m sorry) and I promise it won’t happen again (or will it?).
Let’s begin shall we? Has a random question ever popped in your head? Literally, the first thing in the morning? If you said no, you’re lying.
This was the question that popped in my head this morning…
*40 Sec mark is your goal, but watch the whole thing*
Weird, I know. It’s true though, I haven’t heard from Ja Rule in a long time.
!*!* IT’S THE WEEKEND *!*!*
Who is doing what this weekend? I haven’t checked the weather, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be nice here in the 916. A trip to the Bay Area might be in the works. If you have been reading my posts, you are probably assuming Berkeley or San Francisco. HA!, WRONG, fooled you. Santa Cruz might be in order if everything goes according to plan.
Plans, PLANS and PLANS! Everything in life needs a Plan and a “Plan B’. In this case, I really hope my “Plan B” gets action. I don’t mind trips to the Ocean, but I DO mind paying for gas. Gas is becoming a hassle again. I swear it was $2.50 yesterday…Yeah, I wish we were back in the good ol’ days for that reason alone.
OK, sorry, mind was wandering – PLAN B!
Is the suspense killing you? Ok, it’s nothing major (except for fans). Wait for it…. And it is….
Yup, a Community marathon. Season Three came out earlier this week! I still find it sad that people don’t have love for Community. Unfortunately, smart shows rarely get love.
Changing subjects before I rant, yet again.
Breakdown so far:
Clip of the week: Dave Chappelle
Show of the week: Community
Food of the week: Old-School, Oreo’s
Song of the day………
Andre 3000, always doing his thing. Very talented person, he is going to playing Jimi Hendrix in a biopic. I still don’t know all the details in regards of the movie. I didn’t forget about B.o.B, he is still doing his thing – under the radar.

Enjoy the weekend my fellow humans!

Can you believe it? It is only Thursday. This week is going by
slow, nope, “at a snail’s pace” sounds better. It didn’t help that I had yesterday AND Monday off. Monday was already scheduled, it’s my usual thing to do (I work crazy hours).
Yesterday, I went to Oakland (notice the Bay Area theme as of late?) to watch my Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (still hate the name) take on the Oakland A’s. I don’t know why, but, my Angels just can’t win (lost 9-8) in Oakland. It’s the House of Horrors for them. For the record, I
hate… DISLIKE A’s fans!!!. They are so horrible, but these are the same people I hang out with on Sunday’s during the Fall to watch the Raiders play. I don’t know what to think anymore.
I’m going to mix it up a bit, take it WWWWAAAAYYYYYY BACK!!!
Want a throwback drink?
When was the last time you had this? I never had it, way before my time. I do know people who have had it before. I expect them to text me, telling me about the good ol’ days!
And now, the video. This post has a Bay Area feel (I’m sorry, I’ll try to cut it down), so how about some Bay Area natives?
Stay thirsty my friends, it’s Thursday.
