So Cal Brahhhhh

So a random chance at a so*cal drive popped up today and I jumped on it. Kid asked if I was up for a road trip and I said sure. Gonna let work know tomorrow and then its a quick 8hr drive south and then his folks paying for me to fly back. Win Win he gets his car done down south and I get a one day vacation. May stay down south for an evening but likely just fly right back and not miss a beat. YG- Who do ya love is the jam right now fa reals. Oooooo maybe see if the Dodgers are playing down south and stay for a baseball game before flying home hmmmmm options! Thats all for now just wanted to toss that on the interwebs. Found an old blog post about a summar of trips from 2009 where I drove/rode in the car for 34,000 miles. Haha wild shit miss those days for sure.

Tax Tuesday!

Well if you didnt get your taxes taken care of its likely that you are hiding out from uncle sam, but in all honesty like they are really gonna try and deny your return cuz its late... I call BULLSHIT on that. Someone let me know if they really have ever hit you with a late filing fee or whatever, I could see it happening but mehhhhhh dont know if I believe it outright. Anyway. Headed down to Livermore for the 3rd/4th time this last week and finally got the evo moved out of d&m. Dude just bit off more than he could chew at the end of the day. Sucks because Im pretty loyal and was sticking by his word but just watched him basically give the fuck up and it was useless toward the end. In the last week things just got loopy and it was a joke. I had no choice but to make it happen elsewhere which I did. So hopefully pending some parts stuff Evo should be getting back into shape here. None the less its at least getting worked on and thats a complete 180. Thats about all that is new got some green scrubs for work now? I kinda like the baby blue ones though go figure. Thats about it for now kinda annoyed and dont feel like blogging anymore, over and out suckas!

Just a normal Friday.

Headed out to Quickly's last night to meet up and touch base with the evo fam. Good times and talked alot of shit and had too much fun. Snapped this photo because I knew it would be comical to say something corny like "what doesnt FIT in" bwa ha ha. The ol honda hold its own in a lineup of some heavy hitter car shows winning beast builds cant nobody boast about 30+mpg doe. Haha towing my bitch back home very soon nd cant wait to parking lot pimp it with the rest of these knuckleheads.

"say what you mean and mean what you say" I live and die by that statement for sure and it's applicable to 90% of life IMO. For example you shouldn't be rude when going by that term, well you can be rude just don't go out of your way to be rude LOL. Anyway todays pointless rant is yet again tied into the saga of my fucking car. Last week Wednesday I called dude and basically told him to tell me how long it was going to take until I could come pick it up. Mind you it has been at the shop for 2 months and 1 week at this point. We exchange conversation blah blah blah about the situation I tell him the communication has been shitty on his end and his follow through sucks but Im determined to get the project done so I ask him to tell me how long it will take and to even give himself a few days extra just in case he runs into any snags he will have given himself extra days. He says 1 week. So fast forward a week and a day. Of course I don't hear from him all day Thursday, I text him get the read receipt because iphone stalker mode helps you with that. He doesn't respond at all and all call attempts to him go to voicemail after a few rings. I try the shop line and no answer. Friday morning Im figuring I will drive down yet again and waste a couple hours just to update myself because I love wasting gas and time right? Anyway i try and call his cell again no answer shoot a text no reply and call the shop line. Low and behold he answers! He says what's up like he doesn't know exactly wtf is up? Im cordial and like yo man its nick checkin on the car, you said thursday it'd be ready and its friday whats up? He says its not ready and I need to understand that the ECU stuff takes time, to which I immediately step in and say you dont have to get deep into that at all simply get it to fire and James will handle all tuning and as a matter of fact James can handle it all after the mechanical stuff being finished, so forget that excuse mechanically whats going on. He switches his angle to the fact that "we" have 3 big unknowns The engine is used, the transfer case is used, and the transmission is used. Really thats your angle? The fact that parts are used are the reason that you cant seem to stick to the schedule that YOU created? By all means if the parts were installed and then you started it and the tranny was shit then yeah its a mechanical issue that I would have to take care of, but the fact is you haven't fixed your end to even see if the parts are an issue! The fuck? Don't mention ECU anything because you aren't there yet, he mentions that Im converting to speed density as well. Like wtf? Thats finishing touch stuff man and we both know you are not there yet! Me converting to SD isn't slowing down the project at all! I tell him forget any ecu stuff and ask him are you working on the car this weekend? He says yes. Ok. Would it be a stretch to say Monday mechanically things should be done otherwise you call me earlier? He says Monday should be plenty of time. Im going to call my homie today and line up a tow for monday afternoon because this shit aint never getting done. Im just putting off the inevitable and I know it and dude been knowing it. Lesson learned on my part uhhhhhhhh not sure what lesson I learned because Im not sure what I could have done different? Went with a shop that clearly either bit off more than it could chew, or couldn't deliver on or even remotely near its own deadlines. Annoyed as fuck and at least Im working this weekend and the time will go quickly. See ya monday for the drama update LOL

Throwback to when my car was at a credible shop.

Some things in this day and age when attention is such a fleeting passing moment I truly believe that some things get over shadowed by things that done hold a candle to them. Between tweets, posts, status updates, shares, likes, tumblers, uploads, downloads, etc etc etc. Information is a gift and a curse because you only get a brief glance at it to determine thumbs up or down. Very rarely does anyone slow down and really divulge into something past the initial surface content and its crazy to think what you miss out on. Take for example Red Bull Stratos- by far one of the few mind blowing accomplishments of our generation and a display of effort and execution that is second to none. While NASA is shutting down these types of exploits private companies are just getting into playing around up there. Im not a fan of wasting resources for stuff but if you earned the money you earned the right to burn it as well so cheers to you. Anyway this dude I dont care how prepared you want to be and are but  at the end of the day you can only trust the work and prep you put into something and this man is a BOSS. Take a few minutes and forget about the cute little 45 sec clip you likely have already seen and look into the level of beast mode that this deserves. Savage.

Therapeutic Blogging=BEST.

Sometimes shit can be spinning around you a million miles a minute and appear overwhelming but as long as you stay grounded you will be aight. I have 32 different things spiraling out of control right now but the facts of life and my reasoning are out of the 32 zero are under my control. Sure I have influence and how I approach each thing is in my control to a point but whatever. Never one to put out a teaser and a subliminal I'll disclose my crybaby ass drama bwa ha ha.

So the Evo is still not done. Its been at the shop for 2 months and IMO should have been there a month tops. I spoke with dude and he said a few parts were missing which I know beyond a shadow of a doubt were there, so I sourced them and took the hit. Then I call today and he tells me again the same thing. Bullshit. I called bullshit and now tomorrow I have to go down there and right the ship before it gets any worse. We agreed that it would be finished completed within a weeks time and that is where it currently stands. The parts I need to look for will definitely be there tomorrow I just have to locate them and then all should be well. If they for some reason are not there? Well the whole situation will be headed south in a hurry. Fingers crossed it doesnt go that way.

Work- HR has seem to fuck up my paychecks 3 times in a row each time docking me 2hrs of OT pay. Its a drop in the bucket honestly but more the principle  that I am after. So now yet again I have to go to HR and sit and explain this bullshit again about how the hell am I getting fucked for OT hours. Lord.

Work part 2- Had to file my first ever union grievance this week, because an extra shift was offered to someone besides me and all shifts come to me first via the contract wording. That shit is lame and I wish my manager would just keep that shit in check because it sucks to have to do paperwork and deal with it when I would much rather be working you know? Annoying. But none the less it does work out to free money for me in the end but not my style.

Thats all my drama pretty much and not anything I cant handle just a bit annoying at times. #fuckitdoe

Life is definitely a full circle experience...

Caught some shitty saddening news out of AZ this evening. Blackmore family of my Psykopath days took a major hit. Shellie passed away and her daughter Dani as well along with 3 other small children in the car. Way sad. I always have kept in touch with alot if not all of my AZ people in the BMX community out there from Tucson and Chandler where I basically grew up and this was devastating news to swallow and came sooooo out of left field. When I met Dani she was a little rough around the edges but just a preteen being a preteen, Shellie was always happy to see her hanging out with a few of us guys who were doing positive things and I recall her coming on a few road trips to Nellis for NBL events and stuff like that. She would travel with the Anderson's outta AZ so I would see her pretty often as well as Shellie. Just crazy to think in the blink of an eye they are now gone. The other weird twist in the story? They passed away on a stretch of I-10 coming back from a Tucson day trip in none other than Picacho Az. If you dont know of it it's because their is no reason to know of that area except for the fact that I lived there for a few years aint nothing too epic going on there and of all the places that accident happens I trip that it's there in Picacho. A blown tire is the fault of the accident and one thing I recall while living in AZ is that tires would blow out all the friggin time. I dont know if its the road heat or what but seems it's always an issue out there. So sad and that family just got dealt a shitty hand losing 5 members 3 under 12 years old and the dad is still in ICU so he isn't exactly in great shape either. Soooo bummed about it all and nothing you can do. Kids I say it everytime this shows its ugly face- enjoy every fuckin day and dont wait for anything get it while you can and live life as much as you can with a respect for the future but not a regard for the future because it isnt guaranteed by any means. I donated a few bucks to the family and if you are bout that life I wont link you but find it online and show your love. To Shellie and Dani- Love ya guys. You are definitely the kind of people I talk about when I say BMX has some legit people and Im glad to have met ya and created memories with. Until we meet again, until we meet again ladies. XOXO
