I met my friend jana710 at a bar in Keego Harbor MI.  She and a bunch of other South African friends were hanging out and I offered to take a photo of them all.

Jana and I were immediate pals.  We played pool together and had great conversation.  I had never met anyone from South Africa at this point.  And I liked when they talked in Afrikaans.

jana710 loves her bars in Keego, so much that they even kicked her out once they found that she had a fake ID.

Her and I have a random friendship because we always would seem to bump into each other at random bars like J.D.'s Key Club
and other places in Waterford.

One time we were down watching the fireworks in Detroit.  There was approximately one million people there and Jana and I bumped into each other.  We call each other every once and a while too to keep in touch.

She is such a sweet girl and such a fun party animal.  I hope she posts some random memories from her Childhood in South . . . Read More..

I worked at three different places in three different cities that summer-- One of them was a tanning place.

I closed up one night and went to browse the magazines at the neighboring Farmer Jack. As I was reading, a guy in the same isle grabbed my attention by addressing me, and directing me to look in the general direction of the bakery. It appeared that the fryalator was engulfed in flames. I had noticed it before, but I guess I must've just mistaken it for an oven left on.

Well, I confirmed for him that it definitely wasn't supposed to be like that. I immediately ran into the bakery and tried to locate the Anselon system, in an attempt to quickly extinguish the fire (Anselon is a fire-suppression system using dry chemicals, rather than wet ones, so a unit like that which was on fire, wouldn't spill grease all over whomever was near). I was unsuccessful in finding any switches are levers to activate it.

I next ran to find the manager-on-duty, to alert him of the situation, and . . . Read More..

Frank Mantooth was a genius of the 20th century that most people never even knew of. People remember a Miles Davis, or a John Coltrane, or a Charlie Parker... but "people" don't remember a Frank Mantooth; and that, I assure you, is a very sad thing.

I was very fortunate, my time spent in the MTU Jazz band (despite it being a tech university) allowed me to meet/play with some amazing heroes of mine in Jazz. Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten, Wynton and Branford Marsalis. However, in february of 2003 I played with a name I had never heard before.

The Frank Mantooth quartet with guest Byron Stripling (one of the jazz masters of michigan) rolled in to town; and unlike some of the other performers we'd host, they immediately wanted to go out and hit the bar and hang with the band. We raided The Library (one of our favorite local pubs) and took it over for a good 4 hours. I feel bad for not remembering the drummers name, but Frank and Kim Park (the saxophone player) were a . . . Read More..

The Super Bowl is always a blast. The Stalker's and Renne's always get together and drink, eat, gamble, and celebrate Shemp's birthday. We were never sure the exact date of his b-day but we figured Super Bowl Sunday was a good day. On this particular day our front lawn was a sheet of ice(I totally don't even know what that looks like anymore). We had this trick where we threw a treat down the lawn for Shemp to get. Our front lawn is a slight hill, mind you. So Shemp would run after it only to slide down the lawn, it was funny. My dad decided to show the trick off to everyone who was over for the party. This time Shemp slide all the way down to the street as a car was coming. This car had to of been going about 40 mph and missed Shemp by inches. The dude was probally drunk and didn't even see Shemp since he's a black dog and it was dark outside. Needless to say we never did that trick again and Shemp survived another b-day.

After my parents divorce, they got back together after about a year and were basically a little bit of a cute joke within the extended family cause they would always say "Oh yeah and bring the boyfriend."  So eventually my parents plan this huge trip out to Vegas to get remarried on what would have been their 25th anniversary had they stayed together.  We brought a ton of our family from both my Dad's side and my Mom's side and everyone who wanted to go was invited.  This is the one trip that I can honestly say that my parents went all out in.  I love family trips and hope to have a big one overseas someday.

I remember waking up butt early because my mom had to get to the airport 3 hours early before our flight.  I remember Dan and I playing a couple of classic old school games on his laptop in the airport.

Once we arrived in Vegas we checked in and wandered around for a few hours.  We had lunch at a . . . Read More..
