I wanted to post something so I didn't have to look at my face anymore on my blog.

So... Merry Christmas to all who stop here, even if it's by accident. Dave loves you!

So now that I work full time, life has really become...different. I get up early, work all day and end up staying late because I'm so swamped that I can't stand it. Since I started, my going to bed routine has changed from what it used to be. Please see below:

A sunset and no shoulder

Earlier tonight I went to Carlsbad beach to take some pictures of whatever I found there. I just so happened to stumble upon a lovely sunset and I thought what a shame it was that I did not have a shoulder to lean on. So as the sun descended, I pressed my ear against my own shoulder and that did the trick just fine. Suddenly I didn't feel so alone in such a big crowded state...I just felt dumb, but that's better than feeling alone.

The rest of the sunset pics are posted in my web album. Give it a gander if you feel so inclined.

When work doesn't go my way

I have a new work strategy to help me sell the best I can while I'm here in Cali. On days that I go out and don't sell anything, I force myself to go to the local gas station and get the biggest drink available and drink all of it on the drive home. It's sort of my punishment for not performing well. In most cases, the cup size is ridiculously huge (64 oz.) and ends up weighing about 5 pounds when full. I know one day I'll go in to a gas station and the biggest cup is going to be some kind of bucket thing...and I'll have to get it, and I'll have to drink ALL of it too. Hopefully I don't have any more "no sale" days.

A curious photograph

Can anyone identify the large man lurking in the shadows at the pottery shop? All I got was this profile of his shadow.

Redeeming the French

There are a few things, as far as I'm concerned, that are active forces working toward a redemption of the French. They are as follows:

1. The film "Paris, je'taime."
2. A fond memory of sitting on a rock in southern France. Those who were there know.
3. A fond memory of being in a small market in southern France and having my brain turned to mush.
4. Keren Ann's album "Nolita". Just have a'll feel better about our arrogant friends across the ocean in no time.

First day of work technical foul

Hi. My name is Dave, and I'm a boss. It's a title that is rather new to me...and it's a mantle that fits on my shoulders about as comfortably as a shoulder ride for Robert Hufford. Robert Hufford is fat in case you didn't know. And he smells bad.

Over the weekend, I saw an opportunity to expand our vast workforce of 3 sales reps to an even 4. He was a nice kid of 23 years and he was looking for a job. I told him he could start Monday.

Today was Monday, his first day and also his last day. After showing up to work with thug-like shorts and black socks pulled up to mid calf, he thought that wearing his cool sunglasses would be a good idea while trying talk to people about Pest Control at their doors. "Fine", I thought..."honest mistakes. The kinks will smooth themselves out." We headed out of the car and to the first door. A "snap" sound caught my attention and I looked back at him just in time to see him hit his chew box one more time to pack it well. He opened the box, pulled out a pinch of chew and stuffed it under his lip and said, "ok, I'm ready now."

I must say that as his boss, I was thoroughly impressed. I mean, on your first day of work, if you are looking to impress the person who hired you, be sure to bring your chewing tobacco and be ABSOLUTELY SURE that you pack it put it under you lip right in front of him. If you want to know the biggest sales secret known to man, there it is, try to talk to people and make a good impression on potential clients with some snuff making your lip fat.

Now I have to be a real boss and fire poor kid tomorrow. I guess now I know how Donald Trump feels all the time on his show. Dang! That's rough Don. All I know is that I want Robert Hufford off of my shoulders as soon as possible. Robert is fat, just in case you didn't know. And he's a liar.

Garred you're right

Dear Garred

You're right. That probably is the gayest post I've done yet. You've always had a keen eye for when I'm being gay and need to be corrected - kind of like that one time on the cruise when I was wearing tuxedo shorts and the indonesian janitor asked me if I had "any gay DVD". Not even just "a gay DVD", he wanted "any gay DVD". That was one desperate gay indonesian janitor.

I'll do my best in the future to not dissapoint. If I have to post something gay again, I'll be sure to include a picture of a girl I'm really attracted to at the bottom just so everyone knows that they are in a hetero cyberspace...there is, however, no smoking in this space and absolutely no running by the pool under any circumstances. Those are the only rules. I don't know what this post is even about anymore. Over and out.

Love Dave.

Tribute to the song

This is a song of songs. Nothing new about it, I've been listening to it for a couple years now. When you listen to it, see if it doesn't match your mood. I listen to it when I'm fits. I listen to it when I'm fits. When I'm somewhere in between, it fits. It has a bit of a Mona Lisa smile to it I guess. I listen to it after selling all day long and getting my butt kicked out fits. This is Loro by Pinback.

Dave, Spence and the Amazon

I'm just learning how to use imovie so I put together this clip of Spence and me in Brazil last November. It's all worth it for the video at the end.

Ssshhhowtime, Ssshhowtime...

just some of the highlights of the recent "dude's cruise + Amanda" (one of the only girls in the world who is cool enough to hang all week on a boat with us).

The first thing I noticed about the ship was this amazing "TRON" backdrop. We were totally in the future there.

There is no softer place than Jentry's stomach...I think all of us can attest to that.

Words cannot describe this...

No, Garred is not drunk. Although I don't expect anyone to believe that could he not be drunk?

Getting ready for the night at the club was a very important time. I'm glad I was able to catch the energy of the moment in this.

Docked at Cozumel. That is one big floating symbol of great American trash.

Cool sunburn freakin loser.

Carson and me. We really get a kick out of each other.

Chichen Itza. No one seems to notice the big Ancient temple right behind them.

Jentry show's on? Sorry Mayan temple, you're cool - but not that cool. On with the show!


un huh.


oh my. Happy Ending.

Garred was being called home by some inaudible language. We almost lost him for good.

Wow. No wonder we almost lost him.


Ancient Columns...

Are meant to be climbed on.

You can imagine why most of us eventually got kicked out of the park.

More columns.

Bought a Coke from this kid's mom. Instead of School, he's selling Coke at Chichen Itza. I wished he was selling fried chicken though...that would have hit the spot.

We came back to our room and our room steward had made a towel sculpture for us. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure that's male genitalia and NOT a cute little animal of some sort.

My most photogenic night ever!!

Today I was looking at some old photos when I noticed that there was a certain group of them that were simply...phenomenal. I just can't explain it. "I have never looked so good in my life", I thought to myself as I felt a sudden rush of butterflies permeate my chest - some of them getting caught in the dense forest of chest hair. What was this feeling? Was I so good looking in these pictures that I myself was brought to blush at the sight of such exquisite beauty? Simply Phenomenal. I wonder what other people must think? I sincerely hope I don't end up breaking up any marriages or turning too many strait men gay. Being this good looking is's the biggest burden I have been called to bear in my short life. I think it was Uncle Ben in "Spiderman" that said, "Remember Peter, with great power comes great responsiblity". I'll remember that Uncle Ben, I'll never forget you. I love you.

All of these pictures were taken on the same night if you can believe that.

Where da Party at??

I live in California now. Hence the cool shades. I have no life here outside of work. That is why I am posting to my blog on a Saturday night at 7 pm. That is how cool I am. This place instantly makes people cool. CALIFORN-I-A!!

Vonder Boy

This is the latest from the hit German Band Vonder Boy (Wonder Boy in English). They are really huge in Europe right now. The lead singer (pictured below) apparently is a musical genius and I also read that he's currently dating one of the Spice girls. I got these rare pics from a fan website. Click below to hear their new song.

Feel the beat of the rhythm of the night

One day, while singing at the rest home, I thought I'd try something new and throw a little Mason Jennings in the usual mix of "You Are My Sunshine" and "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean". That was the last day of my career.

The Matrix

So about three months ago I started dating a lovely girl named Emily Allen and everything was going great. We'd laugh all the time, talk about nothing, stay up know, the usual enfatuation routine. One day recently, she approached me with a proposition. She told me that the world as I knew it was nothing more than a computer simulated program injected into my brain telling me that I was having life experience, all while my real body was sitting in a pod of goo about a thousand feet up on a steel pole in the "real world". "Back in 1998", she said, "the machines took over and the destroyed the human race except for a few hundred of us who live deep under the ground."
I believed her instantly. She gave me a red pill and my life has never been the same...
Last weekend, we went on a road trip down to Moab (in the Matrix) where this photo was taken of her. It's pretty cool, I guess, because now she can move in what looks like slow motion on camera, but is actually lightning fast. Ha, it sure is neat. I'm currently working on trying to dunk it still and it's going ok. I guess it's just all in my mind or some crap like that.
