Now Playing: howard on sirius
I thought I would be a funny guy and post this photo of the Etnies DVD casually tossed into Noah's toy box. The joke was almost on me (and everyone attending the premier tomorrow) when, a few minutes after I'd put my camera away and sat down, my toddler son came walking up to me with a shiney object in his hands to give me. My dumb ass left the DVD in the toybox after I took the pic. Good thing Noah is responsible. I can't wait to watch this video....
Two years ago, I went to New York for the Subdivision tradeshow and into NYC while I was there for the premier of Joe Kid on a Stingray. Kelly Baker and a few other dudes made the trip, including Ralph and Shane from Animal and Catfish. It was a crazy trip into the city, finding a place to park and then literally running through the streets to get to the theatre with minutes to spare. I was still out of breath when Joe Kid started playing. It was awesome. Afterward, we went to eat at this Hare Krishna restaurant. Our small group was sitting at a table, chowing down on blessed food. Out of nowhere, Catfish started laughing. "Kelly's fingers are like little people!". He couldn't stop laughing. Kelly has man hands in every way. That dinner and that day were just amazing. Unforgettable. That was two years ago this week and I still crack up thinking about Kelly's man hands and his brutally honest response to the waiter's inquiry about why none of us had eaten our soup "It pretty much sucked". Kelly is the best.
The point of all this is that when Dylan was born a week ago (today!), one of the first things we noticed were how long his fingers were.
Dylan has little man hands! I hope they stay that way because I have little stubby fingers and I think it has made things like playing basketball and/or guitar more difficult for me. Or, I just suck at both activities. Baby man-hands.
Otto is a true inspiration in my life. He is a unique and genuine individual. THis clip of him riding the big pool at Modern the other day is testimony to how much of a bad ass he is...
Modern is closing on May 27 and tomorrow's video premier is one of the last events at the park. I'm going to miss that place.
