The Bad Years – Common Mistake

What follows is a video of Common Mistake  from the band, The Bad Years.  Quoting their introduction email:

“The Bad Years members are Sami Akbari (aka Sami The Great) and Aaron Mort (formerly The Stone Foxes) and are based in the Thai Town neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The Video was directed by Jacob Arden McClure.

Sami Akbari on the meaning of ‘Common Mistake’:

‘For us it’s about being hopelessly in love but going through a period of frustration and doubt. You crave change but you’re just not feeling satisfied with the time it’s taking to get there, feelings of anxiousness, fear, and love combining…the eternal relationship struggle.'”

I am always leery of presenting only one track by an artist.  It can fall short of showing exactly who the artist is.  That said, in the unlikely chance you don’t like this track, please continue to read on after the video…

Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of four stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird, or in some other way are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; stupidity even after conviction, sorry officer I am in hurry I need to sell my weed, when mailing weed check the address and if your dope is hacked dial 911.

Venice Beach and Boardwalk

I am busy digging out my always over-stuffed inbox.  As a station manager, I reckon that is a nice problem to have…  I know that more than a few of you dig every time we play Amber Ojeda.  She has a gig tomorrow and I thought a quick post was in order. I am just going to quote the email:

On 11.11.11 I will be performing an ALL AGES SHOW along side some of my favorite musician’s Mic Holden & Bryce Wilson. This is my first time at The Witz End so come out and show this new venue some love with me!!

Also performing is the vibrant Adam Stern who is releasing his sophomore album “Cosmicology”. I can’t say enough about this performer. Not only is he a good friend, but a brilliant musician and songwriter whom I respect very much.

I have a feeling this is going to be a very special evening. I hope you can make it out to share it with us.

The doors open at 7 PM and Amber goes on at 9 PM.  Admission is 10 dollars.  Again it is at

Witz End
1717 Lincoln Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291
Corner of Lincoln Blvd. & Superba

Engineer No More – Now I Play with Legos for Pay

So you have a degree in aerospace, you have been looking for work for about a year and you just decided to pass on attending the job fair this weekend?

For most that may not be the best career choice but, in the case of  Cal Walsh, a 24 year old University of Texas graduate, it makes perfect sense.  Cal is going to pass on engineering and, instead, play with Legos for a living.  Cal is the winner of the a competition which awarded him the title of master Lego model builder at Lego Land in California.   Had I known about this contest and the 37.5 K per year salary, I think I might have stolen my nephews Lego sets and entered.

Cal stated that he took creative input from the crowd and used it to tweak his models as he built them.  All in all, just kewl and what an awesome job to have.
