Sometimes, you wonder how people are even smart enough to get dressed in the morning…

If you’d have asked me what I wanted for my birthday when I was ten, there’s a chance I could have replied with a new New Kids On The Block album.

Happy birthday to me twenty years too late…

I am smart sometimes. Sometimes not.

When I was 18 years old, I sat in the waiting room of a tattoo parlor during walk-in day, ready to get a nose with feet from the cover of the Phish album; Junta. I walked out.

I wonder what would have happened if I had got that. I wonder if, in 10 years, I’ll think my Lucero tattoo is stupid…

As I was crossing the street today, I came across what appeared to be a homeless man pushing a cart full of garbage and rare recyclable metals. He was, as many homeless, talking out loud about something crazy. But as I heard him talking and watched him pass me, I took pause…

…was he wearing a bluetooth headset under that huge mess of greyed dirty hair? Was he really having a perfectly lucid conversation with his granddaughter in Boise?

The recent explosion of headsets, especially here in CA with our new laws, has led me to ask these two questions;

Are regular people roaming the streets, talking on their phones about Sally Jesse Rafael and peaches and that one time that happened to them, looking more like crazy homeless people?

Or are homeless people roaming the streets, yelling wildly about parrots and jello and David Arquette, looking more like normal people on their phones?

I love it. Mass Move/Delete of email. Screenshots. Contacts icon.

But the best part; finally decent Apps. My two favorites so far are Scrabble and Labyrinth.

The Scrabble features a Pass N’ Play game, which makes my wife kicking my ass much smoother and quicker.

And Labyrinth is just plain cool, using the gyro in the phone to control the ball. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

San Francisco; v2.0

Last weekend, we took my second trip to SF. We left at 4:30am on Thursday, after getting home at 1am from an excellent Lucero show that included $3 scotch drinks. Needless to say, 4:30am found me still a little tipsy and riding shotgun.

We worked the Festival of Sail, and stayed at a neat little Motel 6 downtown. We did all the normal stuff; the Wharf, the Piers, rode a cable car (hanging off the side even!), saw Lombard Street, ate Escape From New York pizza, and just plained bummed around. San Francisco is just amazing.

This is just fun…

Self cleaning public toilets! And if you need to buy crack, there’s a nice little playground there to do so…

I read a post on BMXBoard about moving to SF, and kept seeing people talk about this awful neghborhood, The Tenderloin. So, I decided to find out where it was. As I sat in my hotel, searching on my iPhone, I found Tenderloin was also known as Exactly Where I was Sitting. That explains why a pimp complimented my choice in a wife, a guy was on the street screaming to his old lady a few stories up, and the abundance of liquor stores. I honestly didn’t find the neighborhood that bad. Sketchy, yes. Dangerous, eh. My favorite part is the neighborhood between there and Nob Hill is called The Tendernob. Heh.
