 She rides motorcycles and horses too.

Our first day/night consisted of drinking, eating, mingling and watching some rad bands.
The next day we spent the whole day at Lake Manzanita.  It was killer since it was just down the road, a mile from Bandit Town.  Woo Hoo!

When we got back all the vendors were set up and I scored some awesome stuff.  More bands played at the saloon and there was a Wet TShirt contest!
To nighcap the evening Whitey Morgan and Nikki Lane sang campfire songs and some of the Bandit Babes passed out free shots of apple pie moonshine.
YUMMY!!

It was sad to leave.  But I will return.  Bandit Town has a few more events already on the roster.  Till next time!
Thanks Jen, you rule!!!

Late nite drivez

When I first bought this album, this was my least favorite song.  Funny, because now its my 2nd favorite.  Driving one night alone, Silver Line came on and it consumed me.  This song and I have a connection.  We are meant to be. haaa!
Save you every time

Gettin the Fuck outta Dodge

I've always said if I won the Lottery, I would buy a giant piece of land, bring in some renovated vintage airstreams and let all my friends move in. 
Growing up in Downtown San Jose, I became amused with San Francisco and the busy city life.  By the time I was 18, I just wanted to get the fuck outta town and move someplace where I could do art all year round and sell my creations at various festivals and fleas.
Well today I am still in San Jose, living downtown and bartending (I love my job tho).  After watching this video of MEGA BAD ASS Leslie Crow of Heyoka Leather, I've come to realize, it might be time for a change.  It's time for me to face "My Fears" and move outta my comfort zone.

Life is wonderful

I just love IIona Royce Smithkin.
Her positive energy is intoxicating.
She is adorable, I wanna hug her forever

Day Off

After working a crazy Monday, World Cup Soccer game (Whoo! Hoo! GO USA!).  I was in desperate need of a little get-a-way.  My friend Sandra and I jumped on the Caltrain and heading our asses to San Francisco.  Its nice to ride the Baby Bullet, it gets you into the heart of SF in 55mins.  We started at Mad Dog In The Fog for couple of brewski's and the Mexico vs Brazil Game
Next Tacolicious, for Nopal Cocktails and tacos.
Yum to the max
Cruised over to the Shooting Gallery to grace our eyes on Charmaine Olivia's latest work, BLOOM.  If only I had lots of money, I would purchase this whole collection.  Her work is so dam good.
Good Times, Man!!
