10,000 Thanks!

17 09 2007

This morning, I saw that the counter on the blog had finally hit the 10,000 mark! It may be a small number, compared to a ton of other blogs out there, but it’s quite an accomplishment for me. I was never much of a writer, or a blogger. But since I found WordPress, it’s been getting easier and easier.

Well, enough with the sappy thank you speech. In honor of the blog hitting the 10,000 reader mark, I give you 2 Moments of Zen that could very well be worth the 10,000 readers! Enjoy!

Here Comes Peter’s Farts!

Youth of a Nation: Pageant Style

26 08 2007

I know I haven’t written here in a while (and that’s going to change), but can somebody tell me why girls like this are allowed to graduate from High School? In case you need a little “briefing”, Miss *Teen* South Carolina was told that 1/5 of Americans can’t locate the United States on a world map (based on a poll). She was then asked to explain why she thought that could be. Below, is her amazing answer.

Was he… laughing!?

 

Good lord… no wonder the rest of the world laughs at the United States! I live in the states and I’m laughing! Well.. what I’m really laughing at is today’s Zen.

Don’t you walk out on me!





FameCast – Part 4 – Bringing It Home

3 08 2007

I have returned from Austin, TX a new man with a new life. Why? Here’s why…

I’ve moved into a new apartment with my girlfriend and am finally living on my own. I played the show I’ve been wanting to play in a long time in Austin, TX with Matt. And I’ve got a renewed sense of hope in my life. But that’s for a future post. This post is all about Austin, the show that was, and the prize I hope to claim with Matt.

July 30th

I flew from Long Island’s MacArthur Airport to Chicago’s Midway Airport. In Chicago, I met up with Matt and we flew to Austin together, finally getting to our hotel at around midnight (Central Time). Exhausted, we wasted no time in getting some sleep.

July 31st

Matt and I tracked around Austin looking for some eats, and we found a Whole Foods about 15 blocks away from the hotel. It was NOT fun, but the walk with Matt was definitely fun. I had never experienced Texas heat before, and I might not want to experience that again for a long while. Lets just say, I had to change my shirt the second we got back to our hotel room! At 3:30pm, we left for the East Side Stages with fellow competing artists Eli Poulin, Natalie Gelman, and Billy Redfield. We met the final artist, Colin Orthmann, when we arrived at the studio. At the studio, we were fed, had a short soundcheck, and hung out with the other artists until around 7:45pm, when we had to get on stage to open the show!

We opened the show at 8:00pm, and played 3 songs; Alone, Flightless Wings, and a cover of Al Green’s ‘Lets Stay Together’. After we were done, we had a nice interview with the hostess of the event, and went back into the crowd to watch the other artists perform. Afterwards, we went back to the hotel with everyone and hung out until about 2am before we got some sleep for the long day of travel ahead of us.

August 1st

This was a day of travel… a LOT of travel… Eli, Natalie, Matt, and myself all flew to Baltimore together, and split up. From Baltimore, I flew back to Long Island and headed home from there.

The FameCast experience was amazing. The Staff was extremely helpful and receptive to us. We couldn’t be more grateful to all of our fans for voting and sending us to Austin! But now, we need the support one last time. Votes will decide the overall winner by Tuesday, August 7th at 12pm Eastern. It’s up to you, the reader or fan, to vote for us and spread the word to all of your friends and family.

Here’s how you can help:

1) Register for a free FameCast Fan Account by clicking here or log on to your account by clicking here.
2) Once logged in, scroll your mouse over “Stages” at the top of the any FameCast page and click on the “Singer/Songwriter” stage
3) On the next page, click on “Soundscape Soul” on the right-hand list of artists to watch our webcast.
4) As our video is playing, click on the “Vote for this Artist” icon below the video to cast your vote.

With your help, I believe we have a good chance to win the grand prize of $10,000 and National Exposure! Be well, everyone, and vote your hearts out!

Enjoy some Zen while you vote!





Photo Time: Fiesty Fruit

12 07 2007

Photo Time is a new column here on the blog, highlighting interesting photos from across the internet. Since this is the first installment of many to come, I thought I would explain how it works. First, I’ll post a photo that was either sent to me or found while browsing the web. Finally, I open up the discussion of the photo to you, leaving comments and your thoughts on the photo. So, without any further interruptions, I give you… Photo Time!

Divine LOL WUT

Discuss!

While you’re discussing, take another look at the photo for a second. Doesn’t it make you wanna do this?

Come on… you know you wanna…





Thirsty?

9 07 2007

This past Saturday, I went to see the Brooklyn Cyclones take on the Jamestown Jammers, an affiliate of the Florida Marlins. The Cyclones won 8-6, thanks to a big rally in the 5th inning! Our seats were in the last section down the 3rd base line, right next to the Cyclones bullpen. When I looked up, I found this:

Big Beer

Now that’s I call a BIG beer! Speaking of beer, are you thirsty? For beer? Good, because today’s “Zen” is full of beer. Take it away Pawtucket Pat!

Feel that pure inebriation…

90s Chart

That is all…

Oh wait, no it’s not. It’s time for my Daily Moment of Zen. 80’s Flashback! (I know.. this is a 90’s post.. but I couldn’t help myself)

I love that song!
