Saturday night...guys poker night in C-Town. Had fun hanging with the fellas and talking crap and slinging cards.
Come around 230AM it is time to make a taco run. Why does greasy nasty food always taste sooo damn good after hours? I dont know man...but it sure does work. These bad boys below were deeelish! 2 carnitas and 2 carne asada...no onions with green chile. MAN! Were they good.
Again, maybe its because it is 230AM and you are kinda hungry and really tired they taste so great. Great night...thanks to the homies for a lot of fun!

My friends at PCARS has a little GTG today and yeah I guess I would say I had some fun. I wasn't worried about the cars so much as the girls. They hired a few models to come and let us shoot them with the cars. The girls were VERY nice and cool. Usually, when you go to a car show and chat with the models, they are usually..kinda bitchy. So it was very refreshing to meet these gals that were very very nice and just laid back. They did not mind freezing and letting us pose them etc. Very cool. I guess it just made them more appealing since they were so nice. Anyways...I did not bother with the cars...I just took pics of the girls...so here are some shots.
This is Michelle and Mandy
This is Jenny...
And of course a shot with FAST DER and Michelle.... =)

I saw this on my homies blog and I had to post this up....I mean...MY GOSH this dude is bad ass. And yes...dont you love Grandma "Pou Pou" just sitting on the couch? HI FRICKIN LARIOUS!
Here is snap shot of my pals. Joy and EV from Bazan PR. They made the 3 days working on this project so much fun. It was so great to work with them. I really had a fun time.
Here I am cheesing it up on the red carpet/step & repeat banner. That is what us bored publicist do at the end of an event. When everyone is gone and done and before they knock it down you sneak in a pic...ala a celebrity. It is cheesy fun at its best. So yeah here I am totally hamming it up on the red carpet.

Easter definitely loses its charm as you get older. When you are older, there are no eggs to look for and no baskets full of goodies. But it is a time to get together with family I guess so that is good.
Let's start with GOOD FRIDAY. I guess it was really GREAT! I met with a recruiter that looked a lot like Gabrielle Union. She is very pretty. We chatted and she thinks she can find me some work. So fingers crossed on that. I figure it is always better to have another person working for you right? After my meeting I drove down to C TOWN and met with the AT Fam. We had lunch at RED ROBIN at the Cerritos Mall and had another great surprise. My friend Jeff announced that he and his wife were expecting! We got to see pics and video of the heartbeat etc. Very exciting times for the crew.
Saturday was quiet....slept in and I picked up mom and took her to dim sum where we met her cousin David. She basically has not seen this guy for like 20 years. So it was cool to hang and eat and chit chat. After that I came home and headed to my friend Matt and June's for some stickering. Yup...you read right, I stickered all evening. But Matt was kind enough to bill back for my manual labor...and I made some spending money on Sat. THANK YOU MATT! It was definitely needed and wanted!
Today, Sunday, I went to my friend Alex's home to spend Easter with his son Lucas and all of his inlaws. We had all kinds of food, played some poker and just hung out. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
Tomorrow, Monday I begin my 3 days with Bazan Entertainment. It is that time of the year again, for the Chrysler, BEHIND THE LENS awards. This time it is honoring Spike Lee. So I am freelancing for the next 3 days until the show. I guess it is good, will keep me busy and maybe earn a little cash while I am at it.

So here they are...LA TIMES, USA TODAY and LA WEEKLY. 3 Good little slices of LIFE as of today...my 35th. Wow...crazy to type it. I can only say it has been a ok bday. I guess I should be very happy for my health and my family and friends. Everyone is good...and some friends of mine celebrated their 3rd anniversary, I have a wedding on Sunday and other friends are doing well in their worlds. I am very lucky that people in my world are all well. Then there is the crappy side of unemployment. Not so happy for this birthday....not at all. Going on 8 months now...yippeee!

Good times...good times indeed.

Later that afternoon, I had to head over to my buddy Jeff's Bachelor GTG. No strippers or too much debauchery. We met up, played some rockband, and headed over to the Commerce Casino to play the HOME GAME they have there. Very very fun and I would love to go again. It was so nice to have our own dealer and they can keep track of the rules and bets etc. Very cool. After some poker we headed to Steven's steakhouse nearby. Boy what a meal. Tons of meat and a live salsa band! Yeah...cool stuff. Here is a pic of the group outside the restaurant.
Sunday AM. I wake up a little later than usual. The time change got me buggin! So I wake up and I decided I need to clean my mess of a room. I got down and dirty. Cleaned, changed the sheets, and vacuumed and finally organized my shoe collection and put them in an orderly fashion. So there you have it. My tiny little shoe collection...of course I have some other random pairs under my bed and in my downstairs closet. These just represent the "heart" of my collection...the JORDANS.
I am hoping with the cleansing of the room...I can invite positive energy and fresh energy into my life and world. There is an old saying..if you keep all your old junk and your pack rat ways..how can new and wonderful things come into your life if you are holding on to old things? With that in mind, I also cleaned out my t shirts...and will be donating a bag tomorrow morning too. Now my space is uncluttered and open so maybe it will welcome some good energy. Keeping those fingers crossed!

Air Jordan XX3
Originally uploaded by AsianImage
Here is a shot of my collection of XX3s. I have 1 pair of the Playoffs which were limited to "lifestyle" accounts and 2 pair of the Stealths. I also included my special edition of SOLE Collector magazine which celebrates the XX3. The twenty third edition of the Air Jordan Shoe. This magazine came in 2 covers. The one I have is the one ONLY subscribers got. The other cover features Michael and Tinker Hatfield teh original designer of Jordans. That issue is only at FootLockers and newsstands.
What other good news is there? Oh yeah..unemployment. A friend recently told me...that if the US unemployment rate hist 5% we will OFFICIALLY be in a RECESSION. YAY! That is just great news. Sigh...
When are things going to look up? Someone tell me...ugh. Getting tired of just getting by peeps. OK time to sleep...

WHY THE #%$&^ DO HR PEOPLE NEVER CALL YOU BACK???
I have had interviews and after 2 weeks of NOTHING, I drop a VM or a friendly email following up on status. Why is it so hard to reply to me:
"Dear Sir, we are sorry, we have decided to go with another candidate, thank you for applying with us and good luck."
or something similar? I have NEVER received an update so far. Please bare in mind, there are manager and up positions I am going for. So it is not assistant or coordinator stuff. I even interviewed for a VP position..and the HR person still hasn't replied to me. I emailed her 2xs and left 1 voicemail. I figured I no longer was being considered...but where is the professionalism? Just let me know!! I am a big boy I can take rejection...shit. I dont get it....most recently I applied to a manager position, and I had a feeling I was not what they wanted...I knew it. So I sent in my thank you cards, waiting for 1.5 weeks after...and emailed the HR person that set up the meeting...and now a week later. STILL NO REPLY or UPDATE. WTF?
I just think a simple courtesy reply...letting me off the hook is just professional. Am I over reacting to expect an update?
