Peep the cup and then peep the coffee pot. Don't be fooled because that pot holds no more than maybe 3 cups total. I learned the hard way the other night at my local IHOP.

On my way to a holiday party put on by good friends over at The Fringe Movement I noticed while at the bus stop that some individual had taken the time to scratch up the word "Free" on all the newpaper bins to now read "I Pee". Although this act is incredibily childish I still can't help but laugh! It certainly took quite some time, effort, and attention to detail on behalf of whoever did this. Art is everywhere you simply have to look for it some times.
So the other day a friend rolled through to the spot and pulled out this bottle of whiskey that his dad had purchased in the 70's. Look closely in the pic at the top of the bottle and you can see it was bottled in 1972. It was made by this company Schenley who clearly none of us had ever heard of before. Mind you its now 2009 so this bad boy has been aged another 30 years on top of the original 8! Had a quick sip and it was super smooth, and I ain't no whiskey drinker so believe me when I say it's smooth.

So the other week some good friends of mine took me out for a bite at this spot called Highland Kitchen, which I had never heard of before. They were seriously hyping up the food, so knowing I'm a serious eater and my palette is not one to pass up an opportunity we hit it up. Turns out this place was literally just a few blocks from my old spot in Somerville. How did I miss it? Anyways the food was excellent. So much so that I brought back some other friends earlier this week. If you have a chance to hit Highland DO IT! I recommend the gnocchi (below), sage ravioli, half chicken, and the banana bread pudding (below).

Tonight I hit up Myers + Chang in Boston's historical South End for some serious food action with a few good friends. I had my first taste of baby octopus and I have to say it was truly magnificent. If you are ever in the Bean and have the opportunity to eat here don't sleep!

I picked up this pair of Imperial Shearer's in nyc back in September over at the Self Edge store and man they have really broken in nicely. Check out the creases and wear that have begun to take shape.

Well I hate to do this but its time to retire the built-in camera on my blackberry. This evening I was very lucky to come across a Canon Powershot G10. I have been considering buying one of these bad boys for quite some time and here it is. I can't wait to see what images I capture on this beast of a point & shoot!
Recently I had the luxury, pleasure, and amazing experience of working with the very talented Michael Connors. I was introduced to Michael through my friend Jamie Crowley. Jamie runs La Folia Recordings, and is releasing a tune I made earlier this year. However, she needed some high res pics and a bio. I didn't have either and never really thought about them too much. So she called upon her good friend Michael to do a few shots. We kept it simple. Michael rolled over to my pad and set up his camera with all the bells and whistles. I was truly amazed at the end result and I wanted to share some of these great pics with you, check them out. If you like what you see you can reach Michael through the following links:

I also made two very important stops while in Los Angeles, the first was at Amoeba Records on Sunset. After cutting down my record pile three or four times I finally approached the register. And let me tell you my wallet was not impressed.
Then of course after a long day of driving and sightseeing I needed to eat so I hit the one and only In N Out Burger for a quick pick me up. My friend ordered me a burger "animal style" what that means I have no idea. I wasn't a huge fan of the sauce (I think there was mayo in it and I hate mayo), but next time I'm there I'm trying it straight up.

My last day in LA was well spent driving around and seeing some beautiful places like the Santa Monica Pier. Man I could definitely get used to waking up to this place every day. The one thing I didn't get a shot of was the sign that had fallen over which said "no swimming due to high levels of bacteria." And of course I see it right after I put my hands in the water, oh the irony!

So my last day in Los Angeles was quite a busy one. I rented a car and linked up with my homie Inanna. She runs La Folia Recordings and has been a wonderful friend since I first met her. So after picking her up we shot over to the Getty for a very abridged tour. It was truly amazing, beautiful, and spectacular. I highly recommend you stop by and check it out if you have the chance.

So I arrived in LA on Weds afternoon and the weather was beautiful. After meeting up with my friends we decided to hit LIttle Tokyo for dinner and on our way we saw these ridiculous cellphone holders.
Then we hit this little spot called Daikokuya where I had this massive ramen with rice and chicken. Shit was no joke.
And to end on a classy note this was posted up in the bathroom.

While traveling through the wilderness of the skyline just outside of SF I came across a few genrel stores. This one in Lo Mar was only place with a gas pump for miles.
However, if you venture into the town of Pescadero you have to pick up a loaf of this artichoke garlic bread. Its the best bread on the west coast hands down.
