It has been almost 3 months since my last confession blog post, forgive me for I have sinned been distracted by life’s unpredictability. These past few months have been a difficult and trying time for everybody, in such the depressed and turbulent global economic environment that we find ourselves in. I’ve spent the better part of this time stopping the bleeding of my own finances, and making the decision that it is finally time for me to leave Arizona.
I discovered something today, and without wanting to sound new agey or anything like that, I’m just going to come out and say it. I found Flow. OK, so not my “One Thing” in life to pursue in order to reach complete happiness ala City Slickers LOL… no, but profound non the less.
It’s really a rediscovery that in one small moment you can go from being just ok, just emotionally normal or average, to being transported instantaneously to a place where you are at complete peace, completely content, and experiencing true blissful happiness. Hyper-focused in the moment. To go one step further I feel this should be an intrinsic experience where you are doing something, not where the outcome or good emotions are Read more
People love party tricks. Perhaps you’ve been to a party where someone’s party trick is so much fun that it contagiously spreads until everyone is doing it.. kind of like my ex-girlfriend Lisa.. haha just kidding.. no but seriously if you get the chance you should totally do Lisa!
At some point in your life you must have been at a party where no one could find a bottle opener, which sucks. Nah.. it’s an opportunity! You get the chance to show the girls just how ingenious you can be. Counter tops and table edges are always an option. Give onlooking women a spike of bad boy danger-attraction when you butt the edge of the bottle cap against a table, and proceed to slam your hand down on top of it. WHAM!
Though sometimes you get wood chips in your beer, or worse still mark the table. You are so money doing this though, and women love it so who cares. You’ll drink those splinters and not complain. I always preferred to use a key to prise the top off, which curiously makes me look nerdier than I already am.
So gentlemen, I present to you the ultimate.. the best.. the coolest way to open those beer bottles in front of your doe-eyed prey. For want of a better term.. drum roll please.. I present to you, “The Read moretelecommuting, which is a widespread modern phenomenon since proliferation of the internet. Some of the advantages include; avoiding rush hour traffic, more flexible use of your work and leisure time, and working from home.
The biggest disadvantage is.. working from home! I teach interpersonal communication skills, and anyone who has telecommuted for a prolonged period of time will agree that the lack of social interaction can actually become depressing. While I don’t miss working in a cubicle I do miss the social office environment.
A few days ago I was posting on some technology message board when I stumbled upon a post from a guy who said he was so lonely working from his home office. He said that although he makes really good money, he spends on average 9 hours a day in a little room, with nobody to talk to, and the loneliness was really getting to him. Read more
HOW COOL IS THIS..
Here’s an interesting factoid “JDOG appears in a music video!”: JDOG was grabbing some late night food in LA one night with Spoon from the VH1 show, when 2 fans of the show started talking to them… one of which was a very beautiful model, who had just been hanging out at the Playboy mansion.. so of course they had JDOG’s interest! They were sitting with a chap called Shaneal, an amazing musician from Australia, who had just played a gig at the Playboy Mansion that night.
You never now who you will meet and become good friends with when you go out.. Shaneal is just an amazing individual and an incredible artist, who you should definitely checkout at www.shaneal.com. During his trip to LA Shaneal was looking to shoot the music video for the launch of his new single “Fancy Cars & Superstars.” JDOG invited Shaneal to the finale party for The Pickup Artist, and introduced him to several people involved in video production, and the next thing you know they were shooting on the famous Sunset strip in West Hollywood. You can checkout the video below:
I get into the limo at [1:50] and then you see clips of me dancing & partying with everyone
UPDATE: Here’s another clip that Shaneal sent me:
