So the Summer Solstice is less than a week away. And also less than a week away is my 4 week (paid) vacation. I plan on hitting up our pool a lot, and taking some pictures, and spending time with my family.

Today is the day of a very special wedding. My neighbor, who I have known since she was in diapers, is getting married. She is a one of a kind human being, and I am so happy for her to start her new life as a married woman. She is a few years younger than me, which causes me to reflect on my life and why I haven't found my wife yet. I know it's a silly thought though, and I won't elaborate on it.

Summer is the season of long days. I love long days. I'm a night person, but will milk the sunlight for all it is worth, then be active until late at night. There is so much to do and see in life that I don't want to miss any of it. Please take advantage of your time here as much as possible.

It's late and I'm not making sense anymore. I will have some exciting news to post here sometime this coming week. It's a new venture in my life that could be very exciting. Please come back, ok?

Well, I've been back from Japan for a couple weeks now and haven't updated you all on my trip. In one word ... Amazing.

Japan is the greatest country I have been in so far. France has the beauty and the romance, Switzerland has the spotless atmosphere, Germany has good beer and beautiful ladies, Japan has most of the above. It is such a comfortable place to be. Every person I met was friendly and kind and willing to help if I needed it...or helped even before I needed it. The food was fantastic. The experiences were great. I loved it, and would go back in a heart beat.

Let's see, a few bullet points from our trip:

-Met a sumo wrestler (see photo attached)
-My Chemical Romance mentioned that they saw the big line outside the venue before our show (no we didn't play with them, they were just in town)
-Fabtone (our label) is run by the greatest people on earth.
-Played a show with more production than a House Of Blues show
-Karaoke (I'll never tell...)
-Bands we played with ruled
-Being a rockstar on the other side of the world
-Hitting my head on every doorway

Those are just a few highlights. I won't share them all, they're only exciting to me and those of us on the trip. But it was sweet. Just know that this trip will never leave my mind.

Hasta La Vista,

ps. new clothing line coming soon...just wait!
