There are times when one must step up to the plate. This can be one of those times… I think(?) haha =)
First of all excuse the noob video editing skillz—this is the first time I played around iMovie ’09 (iMovie in general). The clear water below do tricks to the mind, at least it did to me as you can tell.
As you’ll see (and maybe hear) on the First “Jump”, I totally wasn’t expecting to be off course lol. As for the Second “Jump”—I just wanted to go down quick and get it over with… though I did it “normally” and not too loud this time =)
Good times! Thanks to Keno and Lou for jumping off with me. And to those at the Beach filming and watching, I hope you guys had a good laugh haha. Till next time, I need to practice =p
So, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I was conversing with Juan about what gear to pack for my Big Island trip next week. Coming up with at least these:
20D + SD400
batteries + chargers
He then suggested to bring the 70–200 as well. Now, for those non-shutterbug geeks, this lens is huge and heavy but it packs a wallop.
Anyways, here’s how it ended:
juan: (-) additional weight w/ the above pack
juan: what good is working out if you can’t carry an extra 10 pounds?!
juan: I’ll fight you

Oh man, that cracks me up HA! This guy keeps it real =p
Wow! That was one fast month. The day seems to be getting shorter and shorter, and the weather changes more frequently than ever (at least in SF).
Since the start of the year, I created a new project for myself just to use my new toys more and get more experience as well with photography. It’s pretty much a‑photo-a-day. It’s hard to pick one photo that describes and sums up my day as I tend to take a bunch. But what can I tell you, so far so good. You may take a look at the Flickrset over here.
Amongst other things in the world of muah, I’ve been active as ever doing beta-testing for different Web 2.0 companies. It’s fun seeing and experience people’s accomplishments and creativity. Not to mention, it gives you ideas when the bulb is dim.
Besides the wait for my Yahoo! Mail Beta invite (still), I just signed up for a beta-test with OmniDrive. Hopefully, I can grab one and see what the fuss is all about. Techcrunch’s Michael Arrington seems to like it versus other companies currently in the online storage market.
Meanwhile, boarding season is fun so far. I went up with a couple of friends to North Tahoe for MLK Holiday Weekend. I can’t wait to go up again. Hopefully, some time soon but most likely for Biggy’s BDay first weekend of March around the South Tahoe area.
Anyways, three big trips for me this year: Hawaii, Japan and P.I. Other than the major saving-up for cash, I also need to save PTO days from MA. Going to go to Hawaii for Farida & Brad’s wedding on the first weekend of August. I think it’s in the north-west part of the Big Island. Should be good times as the old roomies from 916 are coming. That’ll be cool too as I have never been to the Big Island but have been to Oahu back in the early 90’s with my family.
Then, during the first week of November, Japan with some UCI buds. Belle seems to be the ring-leader of this trip. It’s just hard to get everyone on board this one as it is likely to span 10 days (a day or two more for relaxation after we get back from the flight). Hope it goes through, and we get a good group size to go. I can’t wait to take photos over there.
Last but not least, ever since my bro and I got here in 88–89, we haven’t spent Christmas nor New Year’s in the P.I. So, my grandma blurted out the idea that we should all go for the Holidays this year. What can I say, it’s all gravy with my grandma’s idea. Damn, that should be fun.
