Burritos this morning for Breakfast! Whoo! Its been a wile since I have had a proper update. The new job is going really well, The people are great and I have been really busy. Its funny but I never thought I would think 11 hours being a early night at work.. I have been in the Vault getting things adjusted as well as setting up the shipping since that all goes through me now... I have helped on a couple small jobs as so I hope it should be a very short time until I can be a full time Asst. Libby started her new job and has been in New York since last Sunday, tonight I will get her from the airport.. I finally got my 2002! I found one on craigslist and went to take a look. The seller took what I offered and it drove really well! Its off the road today getting a new starter but should be back by tonight or possibly monday.. This weekend is the Mods May Day Ride, and I will be spinning records at Posers on melrose for part of the ride... Im excited for Tom Waits new tour, Its funny that hes playing two Shows in Phoenix. Tickes are pretty steep at 100 bucks but I beats flying to Louisville again. I really hope libby will get to go this time... I really want her to see him live its kinda a rare chance to see him play and I hope she can get out of work. I hope to finish up my Glass Heroes Documentary this weekend, Its been too long.. But with work and all its hard to find the time for alot of things...

Very Sad News

I got this news yesterday, on monday morning from Ragens Friend Matt. Its very sad and I really dont know how to feel quite yet..

Hi Everyone...

For those of you that havn't gotten the news yet... my sister passed away yesterday November 25th... at age 27
November 9th 1980 - November 25th 2007
She died of Brain Cancer in Sherman Hospice House
Myself, my parents and Clint were with her at the time of her death (just after 4am)

Clint I am sure would appreciate any of your help on passing the invite and info on to their mutual friends, or any of his.. as he is of course taking this very hard and might not be in the best place to get this out on his own...or at the very least...verbally. (as is the case with me)

We have been able to establish somethings today and I want to get the word out to all of her Friends.. some of which I only have MySpace information....please PASS THIS ON to anyone that it should get to as I cannot get to everyone fast enough. It is less than 2 weeks notice and during the holiday season...so it is imporatant that everyone get this asap to make arrangments.

Date: Sunday December 9th 2007

Dress: "Cute" whatever you want...not too casual ...but not funerally...but whatever you feel is appropraite for Ragen's Memorial.

Info on Speaking: If you would like to say ANYTHING...anything at all... a simple memory or just a thought.. up to an oranized speech...I would love that, just if you can, let me know.. so I kinda sorta know the timeing I have to layout. I will do organized speakers for those who tell me ahead of time, and I will also open it up to ANYONE who desides they'd like to say something...but letting me know ahead would really help ME.

Info on sending anything...what to do: I would encourage anyone to spend any money they might on flowers and instead donate to LIVESTRONG - Ragen's favorite Charity... but you are welcome to do what you would like.
If you are flying or driving in.. I know this is an expense and for you to be there would be the ideal choice rather than anything else or additional monetarily. Or if you smoke...please stop!

Info on who to invite: Please help me pass this on to Ragen's friends and anyone who would appreciate being there to celebrate her life. It is open...although I would LOVE RSVP's so I have an IDEA of how many to make sure I have enough seating...tables...food. Your Family or Friends who would also be there...please count them. If you add people too short of notice or the day of..that is FINE.. please do so. JUST GIVE ME WHAT YOU THINK... UP TILL I'd SAY..... THE FRIDAY BEFORE....in case its more than I've estimated and given to the hotel.

RSVP: Brandi - Info@DolceCo.com
any ?'s ....same.....



The past weekend has been a huge pain in the ass, Everything seems to cost more then what I have. My car was towed, our pets got sick, suprise bills, you name it. Just feels like this is not working out... I have been out of college almost 9 years and I make $12 an hour. Its not even a living wage in Los Angeles. Feels like a huge insult in a way. Its not that I want to be rich but after 10 months im really sinking into debt. Libby is in the same state of affairs.We both would like to put money away for a wedding, and I have no available money for my 401k. We cant afford to leave the house for any type of vacation we were planning on going to SF but we only get paid for a 8 hour day for vacation time not the 50+ week we work so we loose almost $200 per person when we take off. I kinda feel like taking this job was a big mistake, Granted I knew things were going to be like this when I came out here but there is only so much you can take. Just feels like I work non-stop just so I can live, with no reward for my efforts.

A bit of a Question for the soulies

I have been doing most of my blog postings on myspace latley, Just been a bit lazy i guess... I went back east for a week and became a godfather, and im italian. Ha! Wile I was back east my aunt told me she had something for me. She had 2 large boxes in her apt. and told me they were for me. They Looked pretty old and were heavy. Turns out her ex husband died a year ago. I never met him and they were divorced in 1975. Turns out he was a drummer and collected records, and he knew that I was into music and left them to me. I opened up the boxes to find some Stones and Beatles 45s. After 10 records I begin to pull out Volt, Motown, Stax, and a ton of others. I was in heaven. There are alot of records I dident know too much about... This record by Othello Robertson is one that i love. I dont know too much on it perhaps someone my have a manship guide?

Just a thought

Why is it that after the september 11th attacks there was a call for action. The world on the 12th would be changed forever because of one horrible event. And as President Bush spoke at the shooting massacre there was a call for a time to heal, No call to action. This has happened in the past and will happen again. I'm very interested to see if anything comes of this. I know that the two events were very different but why is it that I need to have my luggage subject to search, my liquids restricted and shoes removed, we can not travel with nail clippers almost 6 years after that date. And yet a boy who was known to have mental illness is allowed to get a gun. When will this country realize that gun ownership is a privilege not a right. And when will we treat it as that and enforce restriction on ownership.

In other News

We all went out for a work dinner last night with Pat the C.e.o from london.
Reasons why I like pat.

1. Loves to talk about Motorcycles.
2. Wears Chuck Taylors and A triumph shirt with a suit.
3. Took everyone out to dinner.
4. Talked about Odd British comedy untill 12:30 am

We all are feeling the lack of sleep today. I want nothing more to crawl back into bed. Only another 10 or so hours. Ahhhhhhh

I read today that Bush is planning a visit to the college shooting and flags are to be flown at half staff. Wow only one day. Too bad The 1,836 who died and the hundreds of thousands of people left homeless by Katrina had to wait 4 days to get a responce from Bush. Thats after he, Has Birthday Cake with McCain in Arizona, Promotes Medicare Drug Benifits in Arizona And California, Speaks on Iraq, Plays Guitar with Mark Willis, Heads back to Crawford for his final night of Vacation. Looks Like the this is going to be a gun issue! But im sure deep down inside he cares.

New Home

I am happy to say I now have a new home. The 20th of this month Libby and I will be moving into out 1br place!
