The Strawberry Scented Fantasy Football League

Oh boy, oh boy…Ladies and gentlemen the talking of proverbial “smack” has begun!

From all corners of the world and from all realms of existence people are coming out of the woodwork to tell me about how they would destroy me in some Fantasy Football.

From emails, texts, DM’s, Snaps, even by assault with deadly Facebook-account I am being attacked in preparation for this seasons antics. Well all I can say my good friends is that I hope you are prepared in the most proper way possible. I am coming out in the most tip top Shane Falco form of competition and there is no Coach McGinty to hold me back from my quest to reign supreme. I welcome all sorts of competition, Sports Guru’s, Auto Drafters, Former FF Champions, Waiver Wire Surfers, I don’t care!

I’ll be starting my very own Strawberry Scented Fantasy Football League In the next day or so with plans of bringing the respective internet friends and family along with a live draft. Friendships will be broken, tortilla chips will be consumed, wide screen high definition broadcasts will be watched, and an epic live draft will take place.

Old Man Diary

-DISCLAIMER: NO PICTURE BLOG. YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO READ THIS ONE-

Someday in the not so far away future my daughter is going to laugh and shake her head at the concept of a “blog” or a “taxi,” or “Twittering.” Think about how drastically our world has changed just from three decades ago when the internet was a novelty. Than consider how far we could be only five decades from now into the future, a time in which you and I will still be alive but the picture and reality of our world could be completely shifted.

Every morning I wake up and consume a massive bowl of granola cereal and then wake my daughter up so she could get ready for school. Every time I see my daughter, I realize how fast she’s growing and how old i’m getting. I seriously cringe at the sound of my age and find myself thinking of my life (so far) more and more often.

Like most people taking a stroll down memory lane there is always something you wish you could take back and re-do. I, being a perfectionist for most things, have a huge amount of things I wish I could have re-done, but the point is that you do what you have to do, and don’t look back with regret. I’ve changed a great deal since my “Hypebeast” days and way more since my dragonball hair days. Things ALWAYS change and as long as you carry that same youthful energy that you’ve had since you were a kid, and make it shine through everything you do, you can’t go wrong. which is why I can’t be anything but happy with the outcome of my life.

Just know without a doubt that every season incites more growth. who really knew what they wanted growing up anyway? When I was younger I wanted to be a Weather Man by day and a Cop by night. Fast forward 20 something years and I’m a elemantary school teacher…and then a leasing agent..and then a teacher again.

Life is a trip.

Get Up!

It’s morning and the mattress and pillows seem to literally be exerting a physical force on your body. There is an unexplainable pull reaching out from the soft surface of your bed and forcing you to stay in bed and ignore the issues of the day. This morning featured an especially strong pull, I’m still struggling to get myself ready for work, so I’ve decided to throw the above track on here not only for all of you but for myself also. J Cole makes quite the funky head nodding assortment of good music and I find this track to be of the perfect variety to make me hop out of bed and start head nodding around the room like I was too cool to actually dance at a club. Time to make moves folks.

Anthony Green & The Trolley

So I was recently blessed by the awesome people at A Red Trolley Show with the opportunity of seeing one of my favorite artists of all time, Anthony Green in person. When I say in person, I was literally right in front of the dude.

By this point you should already be largely familiar with Anthony Green…you know, from Circa Survive… No? What about Saosin? alright I get it, sometimes I forget that I don’t know my audience. Most of you didn’t care about music as much as I did while in school. If you were, I bet it was music from Dance Dance Revolution but, I digress.
Emerging out of just about no where in a large way with a sound so absolutely refreshing it’s a wonder he hasn’t already exploded into the general mainstream. To listen to his crooning voice come over his effortless guitar strums (Hand claps for alliteration there) was amazing.
Catch me in the background in the video below and enjoy the music.

Study Breaks.

It’s
that time of the year again. Number 2 pencils sharpened. A thin film of Eraser dust covers the work space. A never ending, and ever changing itunes playlist carries through the background. Twitter and Instagram are more or less being left to the wayside. The same t-shirt starts to see more than a few days of wear in a row…Sounds like another All Nighter

SSB offers our blessings and the ability to stay awake all night and study! For all those at school who will need the well wishes for the approaching exams, Good Luck. Handle all those academic responsibilities and prepare to celebrate the completion of those exams and papers with a RAGER.

Eye Spy: Panties

If you’re from San Diego, I’m sure you’ve probably heard this weekend we will have extremely warm temperatures. Glad to feel summer’s slap early on! I’m done with the cold weather, and am ready for warmer weather, even if it means I’ll have a sweatlodge at my place. =)

So I stumbled on a 10News article regarding the hot weather, and couldn’t help but notice a weird sentence. Please tell me I’m not the only one that thinks it’s a little strange. Haha. The article alludes to the fact that because more people will be at the beach this weekend, there will be a higher rate of trash being left on the beach. Read below for the snippet (full article located here).

“George Lusk of Chula Vista knows the local beaches well. Many like Lusk said they’re concerned of the belongings and trash being left behind at beaches.

On Friday, Lusk scanned Pacific Beach with a metal detector. He scooped up a pair of women’s underwear and tucked them in his pouch.

‘[It’s] litter on the beach,’ said Lusk.”

Hahahahah. Really? So the author of the article watched this man with a metal detector pick up women’s fabric underwear … and then tuck it into his “pouch”. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking what’s the big deal. He could’ve put it in his trash bag of other items picked up at the beach, BUT wouldn’t the author use a different choice of words? Using the word “pouch” leaves much to the imagination … more specific, much to MY imagination. Haha. And why would George Lusk keep it? Why not throw it in the trash? Why even mention that George Lusk picked up women’s underwear? So many questions! Unless he considers it a treasure, much like the many other coins and pieces of jewelry he might find along the beach? (No offense Mr. George Lusk. 10News just made you sound creepy. I’m sure you’re a nice man.)

Speaking of treasures. I found this geeky treasure on the Geekologie site today (full article located here). It’s Zelda Map underwear you can apparently buy for $18.99 on Etsy.com. Seems just as newsworthy as finding underwear on the beach.

Stay cool San Diego! Walk around with just your underwear on, you know you want to! Oh and if you happen to purchase this Zelda underwear and accidentally leave it on a San Diego beach, there is a likely chance that someone like George Lusk will find it and tuck it into his “pouch” … because he is obviously a geek like us! Duh! =P

SSB vs. Asian Cultural Festival 2013!

First off, a big shoutout to my team at Kkonnect.net.  Back in the game, baby!

Today was the Asian Cultural Festival, the brainchild of one very awesome Dennis-Michael Broussard.  And like so many of his events, this event was poppin’, creative, and eye-opening.  Don’t believe me?  A few of our team members all split up and covered the event in their own way, either by bringing in musical guests, taking pictures, or doing JoJo poses.

Take a look at these pictures below:

Twitchy and Supergirl. I’ve really gotta come up with a cooler nickname for her.

You’re a grand old flag…

And for those of you that can’t handle the silliness I bring, then I say to you, good day.

SSB vs. @RondaRousey’s Couch

Ronda Rousey, if you don’t know her already, is the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.  Her finishes?  All via armbar.  And they hurt.  But, she’s a human being like you and me, and she buys stuff off Craigslist.

SSB vs. Ronda Rousey's Craigslist Couch

No, she did not buy the couch off Charlie Murphy.

Good luck in all your future fights, Ronda!   We of Strawberry Scented Burnout wish you the best!
