Peruvian Hold Up Mask

Not really, but it is called a “pasa montañas” or ‘mountain passer’ but to me it is a funny one of a kind tourist item for sale at this alpaca store in Arequipa Peru.  That is me wearing it and I regret not buying it since it was relatively cheap.  I still don’t really know why it makes me laugh.  If you are considering holding up your local cornerstore or yoga studio, I advise you do it in style and wear this mask. That white thin handlebar mustache pattern and …

[6 Apr 2009 | Comments Off on Peruvians drink Hornimans Tea | ]

 During my visit to Peru, I could not help a quick chuckle when my grandmother offered me some tea and slapped a box of Hornimans on the table.  She kept asking why it was funny to me which is something you don’t want to explain to your cute little Peruvian grandmother.
Could this be one source of Peru’s obsession with sex and machismo?  Besides those little Guacos de Mochica which  are very revealing that is.

Have you ever heard of a band that plays for cats?  If not, then you must check out “The Wiggles,” the newest band in town that has found their niche playing only for cats.  Jeff Brown, the producer, a very talented actor featured in various TV episodes as well as a Blue Man Group member, and also one of my oldest friends came up with this idea.  this is what Tilzy.tv had to say about it:
“Like any well-executed satire, The Tender Morsels captures a niche genre of rock, one where …

[13 Oct 2008 | Comments Off on Whisky Fest San Francisco 08 Redux | ]

Thanks to my “homie” Kieran, a local recognized mixologist in San Francisco, I was invited to attend this years Whisky Fest at the Marriot.
As the escalator lowered me down to two levels underneath the Marriot  where the fest was hosted, I was welcomed by the calm waft of fine malt whiskey and scotch scents – appropriate.  I received my tasting glass and my smile multiplied when I entered the largest whisky congregation in the entire planet, at that very moment at least.  After taking my first shot, the server prompted …

Much respect to Jelly Donut’s lastest reprise antics as the gansta rappin dude dressed in a giant jelly donut costume.  He is hilarious.  If you are not familiar with Jelly Donut’s work, first check out this humorous video on Jelly Donut for Current TV here.  This will set the stage for the following clip better. Or maybe you think a rapping donut is funny as is.  His latest video called “McCain Be Old” deserves your attention now.

This is nothing but shameless promotion. I have not been writing for a while. My excuse? bad women and hard work. Nuff said, right?
My least favorite holiday of all time is coming up. Valentines Day! Boo. I am one of those Valentine day haters, along with a few others. I was offered to dj an Anti-Valentines Drink the pain away party at the Argus Lounge, located at 3187 Mission St at Valencia in the lovely city of San Francisco of course. My Dj Buddies:Tau G …

I recently wrote about the movie Idiocracy with Luke Wilson and urged some of you to get it. Well if you ever actually saw it you will recognize the fictional Brawndo softdrink from the future. Well, 20th Century F0x and Redux Beverages LLC teamed up to make the real life Brawndo which is available as of December 15th. It is a peculiar move by the studio to allow its production, considering they pretty much slipped this instant classic movie straight to DVD under the noses of …

[12 Dec 2007 | Comments Off on Glow In The Dark Meow Meows From South Korea | ]

Professor Il-Keun Kong from Gyeongsang National University in South Korea thinks it’s a good idea to clone glow in the dark cats. Is anyone concerned with losing their cat in the dark? This is what he said:
“We have proved our world-class ability in cloning animals that have modified characteristics,” said Kong. “We found that the red fluorescent protein in all the organs of the dead kitten, which means we have established an efficient way of cloning gene-modified cats.’‘

[6 Dec 2007 | Comments Off on Ka-shing!!! The Richest Man In Asia is worth $23 Billion | ]

“Li Ka-shing is the richest man in Asia and the ninth richest person in the world, and owner of an appropriate rich guy last name. His wealth is valued at $23 billion” and he recently decided to drop 60 million for a piece of Facebook. What a cheap ass! I also read that he dresses “modestly”. When you run out of money next time, just say his name three times. Watch the money pour in.  Can anyone get this guy to introduce China …

This is a ridiculous sleeping bag made by Kelty that my friend Tau bought this afternoon. It was packed in a box, which made no sense, but it added to its impressive proportion. It was so big I got inside to see what it was all about. Could this sleeping bag be used as a good pick up line excuse somehow?
Eventually owning this sleeping bag should should pay off big in someway or another. Give shelter to a homeless person, assist in an emergency child birth, …
