2008 Wrap-Up (Photos From the Past Year)

2008 was a crazy year for me. The “divorce” was finally over and no more mortgage. I was set free in a lot of ways. Here’s some pics from the last year that never made the blog..

LA Gas Prices
Gas GaugeGas prices got out of control (I had to spend $5.15 a gallon once in Hollywood), leading me to drive less and steal more (gas). Which made LA suck even more.

Another Week in Las Vegas

Recap of last week in Las Vegas…

First off, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again.. A week in Vegas is too long!

The Plaza Hotel. Yeah, it’s a “smoking room”.

How to sneak a dog into your hotel room:

Get a good size box. Pup is gonna want to sit instead of lay down so put the box vertical. After goin past security, try to keep him still all the way to your room. One kick and all the people in the elevater will wonder if you are smuggling a midget into your room. 

Let him out and enjoy your stay.

When you go out on the ledge of your hotel, bring your clothes! Especially if anyone might lock you out there. (Unless you are like Skimpy here, and you like letting Brian hang out.)

Also spent some time in the streets, gettin some ups and hangin with the riff-raff and alleycats while discovering downtown LV. Old casinos, 99¢ deep fried Twinkees (yuck.) or deep fried Oreos (Yum.), $1 margaritas and $2 Shrimp Cocktails (what!).

Oh and almost forgot.. it was fashion tradeshow week. I hit up Pool, Magic and Project. Didn’t care for much of the new fashion and I wasn’t showing anything, but it was cool to see some people that I haven’t seen in a minute. And all the shows lead to some crazy nights and plenty of new aquaintances and connections.

This shirt wasn’t at the trade shows but was was one of my faves. It’s sound activated. Scream and the levels on your shirt go up. DOPE!

Thanks to David and David for hookin us up with a ride outta Vegas.

I’ve left out ALOT, but it was a long week and I am over it. “I’m going, going, back, back to Cali”.
