Prince at the Forum

Posted on April 24, 2011 at 3:06pm 0 Comments

Great things: 

Prince and his gigantic catalog of hits. I'm sure your aware of it. How many artists and even sub genres have come and gone since he came on the scene?


Prince's sense of showmanship. The stage was shaped like that symbol, there were dancers, hella costume changes, lights, video screens, etc. The guy's a pretty good dancer too. 


Happy people act happy. Everyone in the massive crowd was in a good mood and very polite. It is such a contrast…

I started writing down a list of daily achievements in a journal. There are multiple sources for the idea that all talked about something similar in different contexts. I'm reading a book called Market Wizards right now and several of the people featured mentioned keeping a trading journal, as did Stan Weinstein in… Continue

#21 Cooked by Chef Jeff Henderson

Posted on June 19, 2010 at 1:30pm 1 Comment

Cooked is about Chef Jeff Henderson, a brother who went from baller status in the San Diego drug underworld to federal incarceration to running kitchens at Vegas hot spots like the Bellagio and Ceasar's Palace and having a show on the food network. It was obviously an interesting story and a quick read. Henderson goes into graphic detail about his days of selling marijuana and crack as well as his decade in custody. He also goes into that same sort of detail when he writes about kitchens and… Continue

Found this on the flash drive. It was taken from the best of Craigslist, author unknown. I recognize some of the ideas and terminology from Dr. Phil, but who knows where he got it from. Maybe someone else can gain some insight from it...


Life Law #1: You either get it or you don't.

Strategy: Become one of those who gets it.

It's easy to tell these people apart. Those who "get it" understand how things work and have a strategy to create… Continue

site tech problems

Posted on December 30, 2009 at 2:40am 2 Comments

using a mac with firefox and tonight safari


sporadic rejection of posts. Sometimes posts show up, other times the spinning icon slows to a speed reminiscent of dialup. I usually give up after about 2 minutes. Tried sending an email related to this, but the same thing happened.

Sometimes when I go to reply to a post, no text box appears and the icons on the page stretch out.

Is it just me?

Yes!!  I was just telling Omar about your friend at the post office.  Send the letter, maine.  I keep missing your calls.  I hate that.  You're the coolest.  Hurry up with that woman at the post office.  Give her a BIG package!  Peace, CE!  Love, love, love, my friend.

Hey I hear ya dude but its kool... I'll just work with the folks who come through and want to do stuff though... There's enough work to do already and plenty of people who come through and actually want to do stuff that I can focus on building with them... If "my folk" decide to fall in then its a bonus

Good morning.  It was so nice talking to you last week.  Every time I hear, "What's goin on?" my spirits are lifted.  Have a good week at that job, man.  Peace.

Right on, I'm always down to check a doc that gives the thorough view, I'll add that.  Good-looking out.

Bro, the radio stations are pumping the upcoming Philly Motorhead show crazy.  I'm tempted to go just because of their status and even with my limited metal knowledge, I dig the songs I know.  and I'm checking some of the names you mentioned.
