New Armadillo tires, new break pads, new Cinelli handlebar wraps, maintenence/service thanks to Incycle in Pasadena.

Rode around Cabrillo and Westmont, which was a bad idea cuz of that damn hill, then to Pyrness which was another damn hill, then took it easy around Norwood. Winded after 1.5 miles. -_-*

Otherwise the bike runs nice and smooth. I have to get myself out of the habit of leaning to harsh when I pedal cuz it throws me off balance (of course this all happens when I get tired after 10 minutes).

Didn't come across too many cars, but I made sure to smile and wave to the ones I did see. First goal? To make it to one of the guy's houses relatively sound (and not out of breath).

Currently getting new tires, and a tune up/look-see at Incycle in Pasadena. There's lots of surface rust, though, so an afternoon with some steel wool is in my future. Need to get new handlebar tape, and a rear rack for groceries.

My parents made zong today. Roast pork, chinese sausage (lapchang), salt egg, mushrooms and peanuts. I already ate 2.


And the big pot it was cooked in. I can probably boil 20 chickens in this thing!

Despite the judgmental jabs of wiifit, here's how the last week of fooding looked like:

Sunday: Taste of Alhambra
Monday: Souplantation
Tuesday: Double cheeseburger and zucchini sticks from Tops
Wednesday: Sushi at kabuki, vanilla with reeses and heathbar something at baskin robbins, osso bucco (homemade, baby) beers at lucky baldwins
Thursday: Hot dogs and carne asada from a makeshift grill outside the ceramics studio, roast beef sandwich and double chocolate cookie from panera
Friday: Ikea Meatballs, Drinking at dnb, tripas tacos and buche mulita
Saturday: Leftover osso bucco and zong
Tomorrow - Claypot chicken rice

Howabout we start cooking dinners for each other? It'll ease wallets (especially mine), and might turn into something pretty fun.

10:36 am - What I've learned in the past few days
Apparently crows are natural predators of squirrels. Or at least in North El Monte.

There will always be ugly furniture.

Most people are don't really care when you take a picture of their unwanted's. Other people do tend to stare.

There hasn't been a specific area where the unwanted's were necessarily cooler than others. But El Monte seems to have had the most ugly sofas, and Monrovia had more soiled mattresses. Alhambra has technically had more toilets, though (the 2 on 6th, south of Mission).

The math class I'm currently taking (the only class I need to finally graduate), does not fulfill my GE requirement. Of course I find this out 5 weeks into the course. *sigh

The Broad Contemporary at LACMA is awesome. Go now.

Saw The Hammer with Adam Carolla at laemmle's Playhouse 7 on Colorado (next to Vroman's). Good movie, I was actually really impressed with it. You've probably heard the majority of rants/commentary in the movie from loveline/his own show, but my biggest joy was to hear other people in the theater laugh at it. I know he mentions how he used to be a Golden Gloves boxer, but actually seeing him hit focus pads and skipping rope was pretty awesome. Highly recommended!

Another review over at http://letsallgotothelobbypartsix.blogspot.com/

We've come to the conclusion that all dive bars essentially look the same. I've been to Jadee's, Al's, Shady Brady's, and Belly's West, and the back entrances have all looked the same, there's almost always wood paneling of some sort, there's weird random stuff all over the wall, and there's at least 1 loud, bright annoying thing going on (darts, jukebox or karaoke). But you really can't beat the prices and especially the ambience.

Best way to celebrate Good Friday? Steaks and alcohol! Easter? Prime rib and wine! Tomorrow? Oatmeal and flax. Yippee?

Spring Break! Cleaning room! Finishing website! Drawing illustrations! Working out! And so much more! Call me!

Ok, why is it that every ad I've seen for 10000 BC (A Love Story), they always use the "sabretooth tiger backs up guy against a rock" image to sell the movie? From the majority of the images I've seen online, the tiger doesn't even look like he's in front of the guy. The eyes are looking somewhere else, the lightsource looks different on both figures. I'm nitpicking because this whole movie is supposed to be some epic CGI adventure, and the scenes they're using to sell it aren't impressive. But of course, it's the number 1 movie of the weekend. *sigh

There should be a review of it somewhere, like http://letsallgotothelobbypartsix.blogspot.com/. Or not, I'd rather no one pay to see this crap. But the blog is free, and 10000 times more epic.

Went to Nucleus' new location (across the street from Prober's Shoes where that chinese tutoring place used to be) yesterday, very slick. Larger and more open, with super big windows and bright lights everywhere. The gallery space is larger too, hope I can sneak my way in.

Had lunch at Bistro 39, really good food. I got the braised lamb shank ($17), nel got the croque monsieur ($7). Mine came with a serving of noodles, her's came with a side of salad and fries. Servings were decent size, not big but not small, just the right amount for 1 person. Plus I loaded up on their rolls. Next time, frog legs and escargot!

1:36 pm - Cats?
I'm trying to figure out if I'm allergic to them. I used to get allergic reactions when going to my relative's house, but not sure if it's entirely from the cats (didn't help they had multiple cats, as well as a grandpa that smoked copius amounts of tobacco pipes). I've been around cats before (mittens/thumbsy RIP) and have been perfectly fine. I may someday want to get a cat, but don't want to find out too late. Anybody want to rub their (insert lude pun) in my face?

I noticed that the Pasadena Humane Society currently has an "Adopt 1 cat get the 2nd for $10!" thing going on. I find that somewhat disturbing.

6lbs of beef chuck roast (in this case, 2 packs 3lbs each), 1 cup red wine, 1 cup Guinness, 1 small can crushed tomatoes, 6 peeled garlic cloves, 1 onion quartered, 4 carrots halved, 1 can drained olives, rosemary, bay leaf, crushed peppercorns and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle salt on beef on all sides, rub it into all the crevices. I'm using a large cast iron/enamel pot that I got on sale from Ikea. Sear beef on all sides on high heat, making sure it develops that tasty steakhouse crust all over. Make sure to give the pot enough time to come back to temperature before flipping/adding the other beef. Remove beef, add all the veggies, making sure to move them around so they don't burn. Add oil if necessary. You just want some of the moisture from the veggies to deglaze the pan a bit, and also to caramelize so delicious bits that will dissolve in the wine/Guinness. Take veggies out, add beef back. I had to stack the roasts on top of each other as there just wasn't any space. Put veggies all around the beef, add tomatoes then the wine and Guinness. Toss in everything else (except for seasoning. Do that later). I also splashed some balsamic vinegar, as I didn't have any Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil then drop the temp down to low. Simmer for 4 hours. Yes, 4 hours. Low and slow, gotta let the connective tissue and fats break down gradually, otherwise the meat will tighten up and dry out. About 2 hours in flip the meat. About 3:30, check the meat. If it's falling apart from it's own weight, you're good. Turn up the heat to medium and let the sauce reduce. I had a lot of liquid, so I let it reduce by half. Now season to your taste. During that time I cut and boiled some potatoes, get them fork tender and drain them well. Either serve separately or toss in with the beef. Serve over rice, steamed peas, and a glass of wine or Guinness.

Went snowboarding for the first time. It showed.

My "experience" with skateboards did help a little bit, as I already knew what going too fast and eating it would feel like. Luckily the snow and ice was more forgiving than the concrete.
Obligatory explanation... plus pics!Collapse )

I didn't wear sunscreen, and I'm starting to feel it in my face. No sunglasses, so my eyes are aching as well. Also, when I kept falling down my shirt eventually untucked itself from my thermal pants layer. Whenever I fell on my back the snow would rub on my lower back, giving me what looks like a sunburn. Guess I was too numb to feel that one.

I've got break til Jan 7. I feel like a fatty. Lets fix that.

I've noticed I'm really horrible with snacks. I'll try to eat healthy; some raw almonds and plain yogurt for breakfast, or cereal with ground flax meal. If I eat a monster sandwich from Pasadena Sandwich Company full of dark meat and Mayo, I'll overcompensate with stir-fried Kale and Hummus for dinner. But I come across a bag of Cheez-It's or Rolo's and I'm dumping handfuls into my face. The worst part is I don't really notice it, especially here at work where I spend a lot of time waiting for things to happen. At home I can keep myself occupied with my ink drawings, but when I'm stuck monitoring the phones, reading Sartre and listening to podcasts, my hands and mouth wander. Some leftover donuts and cookies from who knows when? Half a baguette and 1/4 bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil? Fast food Onion Rings, Fries and Soup (yes, SOUP) from agents that actually come in on the weekend? It's all fair game. I'm staring at a 2 lb box of Cheddar Whole Grain Goldfish leftover from finals week. Oh how I want to set them ablaze.

Bought some tasty Peppermint Chocolate Soy Milk from Whole Foods. Don't remember if it's from Silk or Soy Delicious, but I'm going to reverse engineer this and add it to my Egg Nog recipe.

My room is a mess. Maybe publicly posting my flaws and follies will motivate me to change my ways. Pics to follow.

Speaking of follies, I really needed a shave the other day. I gave up on trying to grow some winter warmth but ran late in the morning. I didn't have a disposable on me and my new Paul Frank Dopp kit is still a virgin. My only choice was to weather a full day looking like a bum or use the razor blade I keep in my wallet. Not a shaving blade or box cutter, but one of those cheapo tiny ones that come 5 in a $0.75 box. I figured I built up enough experience with my straight razor that I can hack away with little facial disfigurement. The blade was sharp enough, but I forgot I had been using it during finals for trimming, scraping and other razory needs. I lit a match to burn off whatever bacteria may be on the surface. I tried my best to develop a viscous lather with the handsoap we have in the bathrooms. Proper primping practices dictate that one would have a better shave after a hot shower, as this gives the beard time to soften, as well as causes the follicles to stand. I splashed hot water on my face for a good minute. The lather was thin and dried quickly. The blade struggled to cleanly cut through the hair, and I had to use quite a bit of force as it caught on the longer whiskers. It got more comfortable as I developed a good rhythm and technique (also helped that my skin probably became numb from the constant scraping). I got my growth down to a 1/2 day stubble, which was perfectly fine with me. Aftershave? Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer with Aloe & Vitamin E. Surprisingly, I don't have any razor bumps or irritation at all, save for a 1 inch vertical scratch due to the edges of the blade(Straight Razors have rounded/tapered edges because of this).

I really hate Main St. on a Saturday night. Specifically the 1st street parking structure. Got angry enough to get out of my car, and long enough to make myself into a total ass. For the record, she was old, ugly, and couldn't park. I'm not bitter, I swear. Fuck droopy tits.

Awkward social situations aside, the Grafuck show at Nucleus is amazing. Tons of provocative works, though a few were rather insipid but that's to be expected from a large group show. Bought the trio of Grafuck books, got annoyed/scared by the girl in front of the line as she kept dancing, despite being in the middle of a transaction, and am considering to show my portfolio to see where that gets me.

I'm not sure how extensive the writer's strike is, but has anyone noticed the quality of online news dropping considerably? I've come across a few articles recently that just irked me. I mean, it is possible that there's just SO many news outlets out there that I've never really noticed how grating some of them can be. One "reporter" from Daily News was covering the suicide note from the latest mall shooter, and just had to toss in their own superfluous (and rather trite) commentary. Looks like someone was hitting the "lazy writer's guide to stirring audience emotion" dictionary/thesaurus (3rd edition) a little too hard.
-edit- found it: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/us_world/2007/12/08/2007-12-08_camera_catches_omaha_mall_shooter_-1.html


Here's an unpalatable question: Do you experience "Stress shits?" Not talking about the ones that make you strain (shoulda had more fiber!), but the ones that occur after very stressful situations. For instance, since I procrastinated and improperly managed my time this quarter, I really worked my ass off for finals. A 20" charcoal drawing, 8 prints from 2 plates, and putting together 12 works for my portfolio. Friday night/ Saturday morning, I experienced the foulest of all feces. Overshare, I know, but I'm really trying to figure this out. I'm assuming it's a combination of factors (more likely stress leads to crappy eating habits), but I'm noticing a pattern.

Speaking of unpalatable, those videos of people reacting to "The Video" are worse than the actual video itself. Not on the level of grossness, but just pure annoyance. Though the kermit one was pretty funny.

2:00 am - Consumption post...

Tops in Pasadena on Colorado (between Rosemead and Michillinda). Kobe Beef Burger, Kobe beef Dip, Fries.


Kobe beef, Smoked Mozzarella, caramelized onions, Herb Mayo on Toasted Ciabbata. Of course, it's "American Style" Kobe beef, as most Japanese can't even enjoy their own stuff. It has a very beefy flavor, mostly cuz it's a decent slab of grilled meat. How it compares to say ground sirloin or other styles of beef, i can't say. But it's a damn good burger. $6.45, if I remember correctly.



Apparently all the Tops around here are different, and this was the only one that has this burger. The only disappointing thing about the burger is the veggies, as it looked like the prewashed/precut salad from the bags at the grocery store. The herb mayo goes really well with the smoked mozzarella, and all that savoriness is offset by the sweet, caramelized onions.


Lawry's Prime Rib. English cut, medium rare, with the creamed corn and mashed potatoes.


Diamond Cut, Rare, with mashed potatoes.


I don't think this is the famous Piaggio Mp3, but it looks pretty badass anyway. But you're still gonna be stuck in traffic, sadly. It's too wide to pass cars on the freeway.

1:21 am - The Hives live
...blows any band out of the atmosphere.

Avalon is a really nice venue. We preordered the cd, and got to meet the band afterwards. They signed the clear vinyl ep that I bought earlier. They were really cool, even when I was sarcastic with them.

"Ok Los Angeles, I want you to all clap your hands. This is the last time I'm going to ask, as you should all know better by now."

I swear there's always going to be a big fat guy to help when you want to crowd surf.

-update-


Saw the Hives at the Avalon last Thursday with Steve, Mike and Jeff. Headline show, not the Maroon 5 concerts. We tried to get wasted before the show, but any alcohol we had in us got burned off within the first 15 minutes. Super electric show, furious guitar work, thunderous drums, loud Loud LOUD vocals. THAT's a fucking show. There was an offer for the preorder cd, where the first 100 or so people would get to meet the band after the show. They didn't let us take pics, and we were limited to only one item. I think I chose wisely.

The Murakami exhibit at Geffen Contemporary is awesome! Free on Thursdays after 5pm.

The great thing about the exhibit is the location. It's perfectly placed in Little Tokyo, so right after you see all this work that deals with the westernization/commercialization of post ww2 japan, you just walk across the street and experience it for real.

My ibook's battery is pretty much dead. Xmas is just around the corner...
While I'm at it, I'd like some ram (pc2700, preferably 1gb but 512 will do), a new wireless router, a new haircut, cotton dress socks...I'll add more later.

I needed some chicken bones for a project, and since Anthony or Jeff weren't around I rushed over to Zankou's and took home a whole chicken and plenty of garlic sauce. I figured I would carefully shred the meat off the bones, and boil them later to get a decent stock. Once I opened that bag, I had this weird visceral reaction to the undeniable scent of roasted animal MEAT. I ripped off a good hunk of skin, dumped it in the sauce and stuffed it in my face. My hand dripped with fat and juice, and I wanted MORE. I ripped the drumsticks and wings off, scraping the meat into my mouth with my teeth. I grunted as my fingers violated the piping hot carcass, tearing apart the giblets and connective tissue. The foil bag it came in had a large pool of juice, so I dumped the meat back in to soak it all up. I had ravaged every last ounce of malleable protein, but was not satisfied. I drained the bones of its essence for hours, drawing out every last bit of its being. I fed my dog the giblets, skin and one of the drumsticks, while saving the oysters for myself. I sat there for a while, hands still sticky from the savory meat gelatin. This is when I promised myself to never purchase a fake meat product ever again. It's against our nature.

I may be repeating myself, but I'm compiling a list of what I consider THE basic Male necessities (clothes-wise). These vary, of course, in regards to your particular body shape, but I would really like some input. A few examplesCollapse )
This is basically a way to prevent myself from overspending on clothes. I used to just shop for everything and anything that was on sale, not realizing how much money I really was wasting.

I just donated 2 garbage bags full of clothes, most of which I haven't worn in 3 years. Stuff that was supposed to be my "skinny clothes" are now too BIG. I'm finally getting over the fact that I am no longer fat. Of course that chicken story would say otherwise.

Target has a Bowie inspired line of clothes. I've already bought jeans and the hoodie. I'm a sucker.

Fosselman's continues the awesome with their Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. So good I bought some for home. Additionally their licorice sorbet has such a cool shade of black.

Saw Darjeeling Limited. Hotel Chevalier looks better on a big screen (ie Natalie Portman's ass.) Visually stimulating, enjoyable characters, heartwarming but not too cheesy. Some situations got a bit predictable, but there was enough of the unexpected to get me into it. Brody made a great addition (as well as an entrance, literally trouncing Murray's.) Sweet lime indeed.

I've got a hankering for curry now. Anthony Bourdain's in India. It's like Darjeeling all over again. But better cuz it's all about the food.

Had my first color session a few weeks ago. Took 5 hours, was really sore afterward. Next session is this Saturday. Pics to follow.

Stayed up all night printing 300 press kits for our Art Student Alliance for the Faculty show last Thursday. Here's a rough breakdown: 300 press kits with 3 cards each, double sided on 100lb linen paper. Fit 4 cards to a sheet, so that's about 75 sheets total for each card. So 225 sheets of paper total, printed double sided, so my $100 Epson All-in-One had to print 450 times in one night. Took 8 hours nonstop just to print them; had to set a timer ever 15 minutes to wake up and reload my printer. Then another 4 hours to trim and put them together. Luckily it was duotone, and my Epson uses separate CMYK cartridges. Probably cost about $60 or $70 total, which is good cuz our club is super low on money, and I like to punish myself like that.

This was a sequel to the press kits that I put together for our faculty, which was 36 sets containing 12 double sided cards. That totals only 216, so not enough to whine about, I guess.

I haven't had breakfast yet, and probably won't be having lunch either. If I was still at Monrovia, I could just walk over to Mediterranean Grill and grab some Hummus topped with lamb.
