It is what it is

When I debate or otherwise argue I like to employ the strategy of the "so" and "well, it is what it is". Go ahead and try, the argument ends when your come back is...so.
Your welcome.

FOcuS

I dont know what it is lately but the more I try to focus on certain things the more difficult and obscure those things become.
Is that because they are no longer worth focusing on? Is that God's way of telling me I am going down the wrong path? Am I just being lazy?
Verdict: Lazy.

P&J Shoot


Making movies is fun. We took a crew of five to Carson City Nevada this last weekend to shoot a short that we will submit to the LA Short Film Festival this year. Oh yeah...for those of you that don't know I own a video production / story telling company with my buddy Bryan Stewart, the other guy in the hat sitting on the dolly (that I pushed all day).

We do corporate video and commercials but are pushing towards feature land. Our company site is http://www.thevmgroup.net/ and you can see some of our work and a few demo reels we have cut.

The kid (Luke) is one of the actors...and yes that is an aquaman shirt and superman lunch box. We had Luke running away from a dog for around 2 hours...he was great.

What I really want to draw your attention to is the hair growing out from underneath my hat...in August I decide to do a little experiment....and it worked...the hair grows...think on top but its there man :)

He built most of it...I swear!

So it was Tonys 1st pinewood derby...he cut the car, helped shape the wheels and polished the axles...AND HE WON IT ALL!!!!

After one of the dads came over to give his congrats...then asked to see the car...he immediately inspected the car for illegal what have you's...I told him we are really good cheaters then invited him to smoke pot with us in the parking lot...what a jackass :)

I am proud of my boy not because he won but by the way he won. He built it Elvis style...his way.

+1

I picked up Vilayphone, belly button to belly button bear hug style, and went to the bed and fell into the comfy matress...I made a move for a little action and sure to form Sammy and Ella bound into the room joining us on the bed.

We all start to wrestle around and then I ask Sammy "How much do I love your Mom?" Sammy replies "uuummmm 1000." We all laugh and then Vilayphone asks, "is that all?" "Well, 1001 then" he replied.

How much is a lot? 1,000,000 is a lot of dollars but not pesos, unless of course you have no pesos...then 1 is a lot. 100 is a small number unless of course you are talking about elephants, then that is lot, unless you are from Laos (the land of 1,000,000 elephants) in which case you would have only a few.

I'm confused. But then again I am an old man with old man ways of thinking...maybe we should take a page from the kiddies: add 1 to any number and that is a lot.

Using that logic: I have a lot of kids (2+1= a lot), a lot of friends named Richard (4+1= a lot), a lot of hair (50+1= a lot), a lot of friends (you +1= a lot), a lot of everything + 1= a lot.

Getting to a lot is easy...just add 1.

Fantastic...+1 = a lot.

Bug-eyed!

If her eyes got any bigger they would implode on themselves causing the whole family to disappear :) Ella likes dress up.
