Matt, Kim, D'Joun, Jacquiski & lots of Shaqs
Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,
Friday night Izzy & I bottled our SMaSH Ale… it’s pretty fantastic & smooth… and beautifully clear too…
Saturday, we hung out with Izzy’s friends with Tim & Kate… and we spent some time in Japantown, including a stop by a place called Pika Pika which was a bunch of Japanese photo booth… with highly customizable features… and it’s ALL in Japanese. Crazy… fun… check ‘em out… but since I don't have copied yet... here are a birthday card that I got from Filly & some sushi that we had for lunch...
Saturday night, we headed over to a concert at the Warfield (beautiful venue by the way) featuring a warmup band called Waters… and they were pretty good… but the feature was a band called Matt & Kim. As the name would imply, they’re two people… Matt who sings & plays keyboards like he’s Gene from Bob’s Burgers with lots of sound effects including hip-hop horns & bomb drops… and then there’s the drummer Kim… who is an absolutely solid ball of f**king energy who slams away at the drums for hours, gets up, stands up on the drum during the interludes to get the crowd into it, and even goes out and dances ON THE CROWD!!! I had never heard of this band… but they’re just f**king amazing… here are some pictures…
Sunday, we met up with Brandi & Cody to see “Big Trouble in Little China” on the big screen in Daly City… and as you may remember, this is probably Izzy’s favorite movie… and Cody had never seen it before. I’ve reviewed the movie before… but it’s one of those movie where… as an adult… if you’re seeing it for the first time… f**king mind-blowing with just how crazy everything is… and Cody did not disappoint with his reactions, very in line with Kurt Russell’s character (Jack Burton) in the movie… classic… go check it out…
Saturday night, we had our annual dinner at Pinole Creek… and here are some pictures of the creek & the great food…
Also over the weekend, the NFL Draft finished up… and now I’m going to completely skip the picks by the teams (except that UofU cornerback Eric Rowe is now an EAGLE!!! YEAAAAH!!!) and instead… I’m going to review their names… that are often hilarious to me… and judge their parents. There were a few interesting first names in the first round like #1 pick Jameis, #9 pick Ereck (not Eric or Erick) Flowers, #17 pick Arik (again, not Eric or Erick) Armstead, #32 Malcom (not Malcolm) Brown, but there are some others:
25. Shaq Thompson – He is the first of FOUR Shaqs drafted this weekend… Thompson, Mason, Riddick & and if you look back 22 years, Shaquille O’Neal BLASTED into the scene… and so this all makes sense… and I’m actually okay with it… let the Shaqs REIGN!!!
Jacquiski Tartt – WTF? Really?
Denzel Perryman – Not the only Denzel drafted either… ’93 was a good time for Denzel Washington too…
Maxx Williams – A receiver with two x’s for a double dose of this targeting?
D’Joun Smith – Yes… like the delicious mustard
Jaelen Strong – Can’t believe he lasted to the 3rd round… steal of the draft for Texans, I think
Jamon Brown – “Jamon!” like Michael Jackson…
Tevin Coleman (and Mitchell in later rounds)
Kwon Alexander – I had to look… “Jerry Maguire” didn’t come out until ’96… but NOT the only KWON this draft either…
MyCole Pruitt – As opposed to YourCole…
Mykkele Thompson – As opposed to Mychal Thompson, former #1 NBA draft pick
Kyshoen Jarrett – Yes, Keyshawn Johnson was a thing 22 years ago…
Kaelin Clay – U OF U!!!
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu – SHOCKED that the Eagles didn’t pick up this Oregon alum…
Xzavier Dickson – Xzzzzzz…
Denzell Goode – Told you there was more than one… and this guy has two L’s
Anyway, that was our weekend… Spurs lost Game 7 on some pure bullsh*t in LA so… their season is done… so I guess, go Warriors! Wednesday night, Izzy & I are going to see a special screening of probably my most highly anticipated movie of the summer: “Mad Max: Fury Road” starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron & a sh*t ton of badassery!!! Have a great day everybody!!!
