Freddie W. and Brandon L.

So a few nights ago the very awesome and very talented Freddie Wong announced that he and his equally Awesome and equally talented partner Brandon were going to be waiters for the day at a restaurant near Los Angeles.
Being FreddieW fans the crew and I decided it’d be cool to go, grab a bite to eat and maybe even get to hang out with the guys.
Seeing that it was short notice, and it was on a Tuesday night; we thought there would be a lot less people, but it was pretty packed. We were fortunate enough to go inside early. There was still a line when we left the restaurant over an hour later.

But I fell that both Brandon and Freddie did awesome jobs, taking orders, serving drinks, and delivering meals all while being followed by cameras and having an eatery full of people cheering for you, and trying to get your attention for pictures, autographs, hugs, and even some conversation.

I kept my cool during most of the havoc, only asking for pictures when Freddie and Brandon were close, I got several high fives while I was there and it was an awesome experience.

The food took a little longer than it normally would at any other given time, but given the situation we let it slide. The food was actually pretty good and the regular staff did an awesome job ensuring that everything went as smoothly as it possibly could.

So with that being said I leave you with some pictures that I managed to take with Freddie and Brandon, 

Freddie and I
Brandon and I
 for some reason it looks like I'm giving Brandon the 'WTF are you doing" face, I'm not in reality Grrsom took the picture late and I thought the pic was taken when it wasn't I was actually turning around to thank him.

A Blue October in September…

Over the weekend (Sunday September 11, 2011) I got the opportunity to go see the Band Blue October with one of my best friends Erik at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California.
It was an awesome experience; everyone who performed was awesome.
The Openings were awesome.
Ashleigh Stone had such an awesome voice and was very “Lovely”, and the band IAmDynamite was very entertaining; the two-man team definitely did a good job hyping the crowd up for the main event.

Now lets mover on to the main event and the reason everyone was there…
Blue October.
Now I’m going to be honest here this was my first time really listening to Blue October, I mean I had known about them, but I never really gotten the chance to sit down and listen to their music, and I was amazed by the showman ship of the entire band.

Justin Furstenfeld - the band’s front-man did a great job, his awesome voice kept the crowd entertained and having a great time.

Ryan Delahoussaye - otherwise known as “the violin guy” by a fan who was standing behind me was my favorite of the band, he was moving around having a great time, my favorite part was when he played the star spangled banner on the electric violin.

Julian Mandrake – The band’s guitarist, very quiet but his present was definitely felt, he was an awesome guitarist and he kinda reminded me of my Buddy Grrsom.

Matt Noveskey – The Bass player, he did a great job, he was in the background but he kept the rhythm, one of the best bass players I’ve seen in a while.

Jeremy Furstenfeld – last but not least we got the drummer, he…was…awesome, he kept the show going and did an awesome job, he was in the back but you knew he was there.

Overall I had a very enjoyable experience (apart from all of that standing).
And since it was in Downtown Disney the experience felt a little bit magical,

Wake me up…. when September ends…

Yes I just quoted Green Day,
So I woke up this morning from a Tiring three-day weekend (No Rest son!) and my alarm plays one random song from my iPod and that was it. “Wake me up when September Ends” by Green Day which coincidentally is how I feel right now.

I want a month’s worth of sleep…
But I don’t want this month to end right away.

I have some pretty awesome things planned for this month and I honesty can’t wait.

But other than my Groggyness I’m doing well.

This past weekend was Labor Day weekend and I was out of town at my Family Reunion. It was a good time as it usually is, it was a little boring at times but the positives outweigh the negatives on this one.

My family all pitched it to rent one of those huge inflatable water slides, which added to the fun; and it was a great way to cool down from the heat

Overall I wanna thank all of the family that I got the chance to enjoy this labor day weekend with,
We laughed, we played, we argued, and we pigged out.

Let’s do it again next year, yeah?
