MT Goes Orange(s)

Dolores (painful) park in SF. Danny stacked four actual oranges (that he bought just for the occasion and successfully staked 'em good on MT's head.

MT Chokes out El Travel Burro

Paul Green's School of Rock in SF

So... I've gotta say a few quick words on this one. A dear old college friend of mine (nome du guerre the Red Ape's) son Cyrus was playing in Paul Green's School of Rock Pink Floyd tribute band a few weeks ago at the Make Out Room in San Francisco and invited me along. It was just about the coolest thing I've seen - you know, for kids.

Rock Band is cool but this is way cooler. Paul's philosophy of learning to play rock and roll by actually playing real instruments in real venues is awesome, so is he and so are the kids that play in his bands. ROCK ON CYRUS! (seen here playing rhythm guitar second from the left)

The video was shot on medium resolution my tine SD-1000 PowerShot and although the quality is poor, you can hear the music and even feel the atmosphere.

Liberals vs. Conservatives

"If you're not a liberal by age 20, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by age 40, you have no head." Winston Churchill

Funny - the first time I heard that quote that now rings oh-too-true was in the freshmen dorms in San Diego from Holly Page. Recently another friend of mine updated me with the American version - "... if you're not a conservative by age 40, you have no MONEY!" D'OH!
