Ok so I told you I would be back with more info. Sorry it took so long.
So sit back put your feet up it is going to be a long post.
I guess I can just run through the list of bands I saw first and then tell more about the ones I liked
Big Boi, Kinda Major, Papa Roach, The Knux, Bush, House of Pain, DMX, KISS and EMINEM
Sunday (after church):
Against Me, New Politics, Bad Religion, 30 Seconds To Mars, Suicidal Tendencies, Rise Against and Blink 182.

Ok now with that out lets get into the review. Im going to start with sunday since I already gave you a bit on the last post. I have seen all these bands before and since none of then really have a new album it was like the old days. Blink was still the same as when I saw then gee 12 years ago. Rise Against was cool and so was Bad Religion. But now Saturday that was amazing.

Saturday was HOT 113 degrees. But that didnt keep the fans away. Lucky for me I had VIP so it was shaded viewing areas and free drinks, lots of water for me. The day started out with some Big Boi, I love his new album I think because it is a true hip hop album that wont make it to the radio cause it really doesnt have any mainstream sound. After Big Boi I kinda just hung out in the VIP area until BUSH. Now this was funny I saw Bush back in 1995 and they played the same show then as they did now. But it was still cool kind of like a take you back in time feel.
After Bush came HOUSE OF PAIN.
Now as a long time fan of Hip Hop I was really excited to see them. The whole crew was there as well as a 3 person horn section. Making all the beats, they didnt use one prerecorded track. The crew came onto the stage with a B-boy rhythm and went right into a cover of Dr Dre's Next Episode. I was ready for this but I did get another in witch they had a shoot out to Guru from Gangstar who died this year check it out.

After House of Pain came EMINEM:
Holly Crap! is all I can really say. EM did more then kill it. He did all his old hits and all his new hits. Even did his part from Airplanes. Also had D12 come out and do a few song and you know they had to do MY BAND! This song was great live. Now I have been to a few other Hip Hop shows but EM really killed it he spit ever word live not recording here also. Had a live band and DJ pumping out the beats. Now you ask how do I know it was live. Well only because his mic would almost go out if he went to one side of the stage. EM finished the show with Not Afraid but did he the stage went black and people started to leave. But wait whats that from the dark came a stead beat that was getting louder. EM had one more in him and it was Lose Yourself the theme song from 8 Mile. People all over were losing their shit. It was amazing I might have to go to his tour.
After EM came KISS:
Yes the Knights In Satins Service them selfs. In full makeup and all the glory. I have seen KISS before back in '98. And this show was just as good now as it was then. With fire breathing, Kiss of death and all the piro and fireworks. They finished the whole day off with the best song they could I Wanta Rock and Roll All Night and Party Everyday.

Sooooooo I guess you can say I lucked out and had a great weekend filled with a

Yeah as if that could happen to me. OK before I get into this let me start by saying I am blessed. I have had the most jam packed week ever I think. As you saw it started with glass seats at the Ducks game. Next was the field level seats at the Angels game. Then something happen that I had no clue of.
The next night I got free tickets to see MUSE and even better PASSION PIT. Was stoked to see Muse but more to see Passion Pit.With everything going to the beat they both killed it.
Then came Friday night and RATATAT!
Need I say more. The show was out in Pomona at the glass house and thats like a private show venue holding only 800 people.
The show was epic the finished off the set with an encore of Seventeen. Was a great show I had a great seat in the sound booth so needless to say didn't have to deal with the other 799 people.

Then comes Saturday and the MUSIC OVERLOAD.
Now I was going to go to oceanside to surf and do some jet skiing with my friends. But with staying out all night at the concerts I didnt wake up and it turned out to be good. One the surf was REALLY small. But my brother call and asked if I wanted to go to
Um did he have to asks twice not with me. He had two day VIP tickets and a hotel at the Hilton down the street. So Here I sit in the KROQ sweat waiting for Blink-182 to go on. SUICIDAL TENDENCIES just went on and next is RISE AGAINST. So I am going to cut this short more to come next post. Stay tuned....

Haven't You Heard

Being a Dickheads cool. I've been saying it for about 3 maybe 4 years now. But this video says it best. My favorite part is the polaroid app on my iphone so everyone can see I'm having new age fun with a vintage feel. I think if wee all take a good look at ourself we are all dickheads in someway...

Remember how I said the other day that the surf was EPIC. Well this just hit the web if you didnt believe me.

Angels In The Outfield

Or more like up the first base line. Last night me and a few of my "Angel" friends headed to the Angels game. I scored some tickets field level. Now I knew they were close but this is was crazy. It has been almost 10 years since I had sat this close. Back when I was dating Megan her dad use to give us his company seats right above the dugout. This was just as good two foul balls came with in catching distance. Lucky for me they didnt come to me cause I did not have a mitt, and it was have hurt to catch a fly ball without one. Well all in all it was good time. We had a ball park food did the 7th inning stretch and headed home before the crowd. Next on the list is Ratatat tomorrow night and Jet Skiing on sat.

QUACK ATTACK and Then Some

Tonight was opening night for the Ducks and lets just say it didn't go so well.
The got beat and got beat bad. Not only did the lose but they got in two fights and they lost those also. So the game sucked.......BUT the seats didnt few rows the glass.
As if I would settle for less. This is only the first of many games this season. And I almost missed it cause I was sick all weekend and monday but thats what you get when you surf all day. This last weekend it didn't matter where you were the ocean was alive. The east coast got great waves from hurricane danielle. Fiji got giant waves from a giant storm off the coast of Tasmania. Hawaii got an early season session from this storm also. And then we got perfect 7ft plus surf here on the west coast. If you were not in the water this weekend you are not a surfer, and I only say this because this swell showed its self early in the week and was yelling look at me look how perfect I am going to be.

Other then that I got better just in time for this weeks activities. Ducks tonight, Angels tomorrow and Ratatat on friday. Check back for updates.

Yep my Bro tied the knot this weekend. It was a beautiful wedding at the Long Beach Yacht Club. The night started with the service out by the pool and the back bay. Followed by some yummy Tri Tip or Chicken. After dinner it was time to cut loose on the dance floor into the night. It was good fun to party it up with my new family.

Holiday Surf Trip

So for the long weekend I decided not to hang around town but to try my hand at another
Solo Surf Mission.
This time I was off to the cold waters of Santa Barbara.
I started looking at the charts on wed. for the weekend and things were looking good. A solid 10 foot swell coming in from Alaska. So I left early midday Sunday after church and headed north on to 101 to PCH. I got some insider info on some places to look from a friend at work. After about 250 miles from home I turned down an unmarked road that took me through farms and ranches. It was really cool to see signs that said for good home cooking come to the Smith Family Farm. Real families opening there houses for travelers to get some food.
So from there the road turned into this curvy road though some hills that let out on a bluff that over looked the ocean it was beautiful.
From that point I had to find my way down to the beach.
Not a easy task.
I had to climb over some stuff
And cross some stuff
And hike through stuff.
but well worth it. I hung out the rest of the day and surfed then on my way home I stopped and surfed another place right off the highway called Little Rincon, it was head high and fun.
But that was not until after I stopped off at this little place that I saw on Drive In's, Dinners and Dines on the food network. It was very yummy.
I would have to say that this will be the first of many trips up north even more once winter gets here and the really big swells start to roll in. Let me know if you want to come. Hope everyone else had a great long weekend also.
