Time fly’s!

So this last week has been extremely hectic for me. In the midst of everything I’ve had going on I left my loyal readers without any new reading materiel to balk at. I know all of you are so heartbroken that you’ve moped around in your PJ’s for the last week as acting as if your goldfish died. So without another moment wasted let me update you on what has transpired in the last six days of my life.



FRIDAY: I began my piece on Tu Tienda Azteca which I should have finished by the end of the week. Thanks Again Oscar!

SATURDAY: The p.m. hours saw me covering Bay Brawler Chapter 2:Revenge. Check out the coverage here!

SUNDAY: “Memory Missing”

MONDAY: Got the word to start a piece for Front Row Fights about the twitter beef between Jose Canseco and Shaquille O’Neal.

TUESDAY: Made a mad rush to finish the article due to Shaq speaking on the matter earlier in the day. Check it out here! Along with another MMA piece which should be seeing the light of day as your reading this.

WEDNESDAY: Updated all of you about the on goings of my so called life!

All of that on top of all the other various projects I’ve been constantly working on proved to be exhausting. Now if you don’t mind i’m going to go jump out a my second story now!

For the love of…

So after only 4 days of existing my piece that basically just tells you to put hot sauce on a cheeseburger is only 15 views away from being my most viewed post of all time! You people are so fat!

But on a serious note thanks to everyone who reads the blog. I’m on the verge of a real accomplishment thanks to all the support I get. Without every single last one of my readers I wouldn’t be motivated to push forward. It’s been 8 months of solid straight through writing and the only compensation I’ve seen is $3.03 that I have no way of receiving and a PDF file of the book I was published in so nobody can say I don’t love what I do. Keep reading and I’ll keep writing!

Tu Tienda Azteca

I want to thank Oscar over @Tu Tienda Azteca in Hayward for the interview today and my son would like to thank him for the Lucha score! If you love traditional Mexican art you really need to check them out! None of that made in china look a like crap, they only carry authentic items purchased directly from the source in Mexico. Click the link and enjoy!

These are the BREAKS

Hip hop music has always had a way of getting into my head. Now what I’m talking about is the entire spectrum of hip hop itself. From gangster rap to the back packers and from those conscious rappers to the guys that speak strictly on money and bitches. Even the aspiring under grounders that always felt it necessary to roam Telegraph Avenue pedaling their bedroom produced four track masterpieces. I’ve always appreciated every aspect that the music had to offer whether it was the lyrics, the beats, the cuts over the breaks creating the perfect hook. Continue reading

Obsessed: A look at our obsession with redemption style arcade games

Everyone has been there at some point in their life. It becomes an obsession that you can’t seem to get a handle on. You do it over and over knowing the payoff is never going to be anywhere near what you’ve put into it. At times you feel as if you have some sort of out of control addiction and you ask yourself “Why do I keep putting myself through this?” with every cent you spend. I’m talking about redemption games at your local arcade. Whether you’re at the local mall, a family fun center or some big time amusement park the outcome is always the same. Continue reading

Bacon Heat Burger! Continue reading
