Barcelona Graffiti

While I was on tour with the Blue Man Group’s North American Tour, I got to see a lot of the states, and I realized how much I like graffiti.  But not just any graffiti-  not some kid with his first can of spray paint writing something lewd on a wall, but the really amazing,Continue reading “Barcelona Graffiti”

An EPIC Summer- 4 Months in the Mediterranean – Port 1: Barcelona

This is the first post of a bunch about my adventures in Europe. I had the privilege to be the drummer for the Blue Man Group aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s EPIC ship, where we cruised through the Mediterranean for four months.  The EPIC is basically a huge floating city, complete with enough cabins for 5,000Continue reading “An EPIC Summer- 4 Months in the Mediterranean – Port 1: Barcelona”

Icy Erie

Made a cold trip down to icy Lake Erie while in Cleveland. I enjoyed seeing the Geese walking on the ice, and was really surprised by the beauty of the ice formations out on the lake. After losing my gloves in Buffalo, my hands were frozen numb, but I was there at just the rightContinue reading “Icy Erie”

Graceland–

This blog is a little late… When we were in Memphis, we took a trip to Graceland- I really didn’t know what to expect. Of course I know of Elvis, and have heard some of his music, but never really got into his music that deep. But I have to say that I was moreContinue reading “Graceland–”

Easy hotel room salad

Here’s an easy meal I threw together in my hotel room while staying at the Double Tree in Memphis. There are no fridges in the rooms, and our busses (which have fridges that conveintly stay on) went away, because we won’t be using them again until after the new year. So it was time toContinue reading “Easy hotel room salad”

Sun Studios, Memphis TN!

Today, a few of us from Blue Man went to Sun Studios. Famous for being the first studio to ever record Elvis. It’s a small place, kept very much in the original state it was in when those famous recordings were made. Same flooring, same ceiling, same control room. Pretty cool to see some RockContinue reading “Sun Studios, Memphis TN!”

My beautiful family!

My beautiful wife, Yuki, and son, Taiyo. (I can’t believe how BIG Taiyo looks!!) On the airplane to Boise, ID, where they’ll be for the next month and a half visiting my parents. I get almost 2 weeks off right at Christmas time, so I can’t wait to see them all up there! It’ll beContinue reading “My beautiful family!”

Missing Athens…

Sometimes you get a good vibe the moment you set foot in a place. Athens was one of those places. Everyone fell in love with Athens, GA from the moment we showed up. What a cool town. It’s rather small, and the downtown is actually only a couple of blocks long, but its cram packedContinue reading “Missing Athens…”

Great food, wine and Salsa dancing!

Had a great time at Tapas 177 last night! I was so happy when we walked downstairs to find a live salsa band, and they were killin it! I’ve actually played in salsa bands before, and have listened to the music for years, so I know when it’s good, and these guys were the realContinue reading “Great food, wine and Salsa dancing!”
