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…

Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill that will make driverless cars legal in California. I feel it is appropriate that the bill was signed at Google headquarters with the governor arriving in one of those said cars… Wait, does that mean he broke the law on the way there?
2012.05.03-Stupid As Charged
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.
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
1717 Lincoln Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291
Corner of Lincoln Blvd. & Superba
Jeff ‘Chuck’ Norris met with Adam from The Expendables in Salt Lake City Utah. Part of the Van’s Warped Tour 2011.
Adam is from Santa Cruz California, the drummer from The Expendables and a pretty cool guy. He is pretty tall, wide and a bad ass too. We even got him to smile and look like a thug at the same time.
We love Indie artists! The Expendables is no exception to the list of great bands.

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.
