Japan, Planning the trip.


We’re planning the trip of all trips to Japan, flying into Tokyo in mid-November, leaving two weeks later, and I’ve never been so stoked in my life. If you have any ‘must visit’ spots in Japan, post a comment and let me know. I don’t really want to plan a day-by-day itinerary or anything, but I want to get a list of awesome places/shops/restaurants/galleries/etc so that we can make the most out of our trip.

Planning a “What would you do if you lived there” trip mixed with tourist attractions is effing great. So much research and awesomeness you never knew existed.

say it again, say it again


I know you love to hear yourself speak
Words that you think
I can’t follow
Maybe that’s the way you and i will always relate

You always had the quickest wit
The quickest quips and I can’t keep up
It’s clear that you have a real gift of gab
And I’m just jealous
Maybe that’s the way you and I will always relate

But I won’t let how I sincerely feel here stand in my way
‘Cause there’s no love lost that i can’t find again, my dear friend

Uou always said that we’re friends
But that must depend which way the wind blows
It’s clear that you have your own set of plans
Maybe that’s the way you and I will always relate

So I won’t let how I sincerely feel here stand in my way
‘Cause there’s no love lost that I can’t find again, my dear friend

I will be very upset if this actually happens.

Thanks Google.


I just recently put this blog back up, but look at my amazing top queries. :( Number 5 is the best.

It’s back.


I’ve decided to bring this back, rather than do a misc post and random memories blog; I’ve since opened a tumblog at read.icantfly.com for that.

I’ll start posting actual things that matter on here as soon as tomorrow. I’ve got a lot on my mind, and would like to share it.

a-ha! Things that i do.


Everyone posts about how long it’s been since the last time they post, so I’m going to stray away from it and get right into what’s been going on (even though I really just put it out there to check how long it’s been, therefore negating the purpose of typing the previous sentence).

I’ve launched two small and relatively personal projects.
The Things I Remember and The Conversations I have; both updated on a daily basis since I’ve launched. Please bookmark them, and share with people that would find them as entertaining as you.

Other than that, I just got back from my trip to Portland and Seattle not too long ago. Most of the photos worth while are here. Enjoy.

Things I’d like to do before I…


Jeff posted “Things I’d like to do before I turn 30″, and for some reason it made something go off in my head. I haven’t thought about goals/aspirations in a while, for whatever reason. The future used to be the only thing on my mind up until… Continue Reading

But I digress. Back to my lists. I turned 22 in March, and have 3 more years until I turn 25 and start heading into my late twenties. So I have some time to step it up and get motivated again… and this post is going to help (especially if I’m not doing any of these things in a year and can look back on my failure, ha).

Things I’d like to do before I turn 25:
Pay off my car.
Move to, and make a decent living in, Portland, OR.
Visit Japan for an extended period of time.
Write a screenplay.
Buy a house with a massive porch, to do lots of ‘nothing’ on.
Speak at conferences and schools, if not teach.

Things I’d like to do before I turn 30:
Get married.
Direct/Produce a feature length film.
Learn to play the piano (well).
Write for a publication (and a comic, shh).

Best Conversation, Ever.

Spring Mixtape.


Ahh, Spring time. Time for a tastily awesome mixtape. You ready? You might be, but since I can’t see how prepared you are… I’ll just take your word. It’s a bunch of music I’ve found since 06 mixed with some relics. Don’t you like how people ‘find’ music? It’s like you have to explore the caverns of awesomeness to find quality music. Links after the jump… Continue Reading

I Heart The Crazies.


I was about a three blocks away from the Horton Plaza parking garage this morning, downtown off G and Second, and missed my turn. So I go through this round-about and come to a stop sign, look both ways and start to go when this crazy dude crossed in front of me and said, “He’s more of a motha fuckin man, than a mother with a fucking dick. BWAHAHAHA”

I love downtown…
