5/25/2018 Stopped In Des Moines To Buy One Of Stone Sour Guitarist’s Guitars

Through a series of events I’m not going to reveal just yet, I stopped in Des Moines to buy one of Josh Rand’s personal collection, limited run, Ibanez J Custom guitars.  This was his guitar. I’ll be using it to record the solo on my coming single.

12/30/2017 ‘Broken Bit’ In Quartz Hill, California

Last week I was staying at a hotel where Matthew McConaughey was staying and he came back raving about ‘Broken Bit.’  I figured I’d go check it out.


I got a 24 ounce Cowboy Ribeye, with my choice of cut. Bill was $131, with tip.


My three word review: Alright Alright Alright!

04/02/2011 Interviewing Mad Magazine’s Sergio Aragones in San Francisco

This story is the stuff of legends, how this interview happened. The interview was for my TV show I was making, which was later solicited by Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.


As the story goes, I picked up a real movie camera for the first time in February of 2011, and eight months later, I got my first major cable network solicitation.

12/03/2014 The Wall Of Gold Records At Scott Weiland’s Recording Studio In Burbank

This one is sad, because Scott – vocalist for Stone Pilots and Velvet Revolver – died a year later.  This is Scott’s wall of gold records and I was surprised to learn that Scott had written songs for everyone from Limp Bizkit to Puddle of Mudd.  He must have had fifty gold records.  Now that Scott has passed on, his studio, which was located in Burbank, is now closed.  I’m glad I got to experience this little piece of rock n roll history before it ended.

RIP Scott

02/08/2017 “Never Doubt A Duvall When They Give You A Dinner Recommendation.”

My friend, John Duvall, is actors Robert and Shelley Duvall’s cousin. John recommended the Ashby Inn, in Paris, Virginia, an amazing five course, or one of the best meals I’ve ever had.


While we were there, the waiter asked,  “Might I ask who recommended our restaurant to you?”  I said, “John Duvall.”  Suddenly, we had three waiters.  Each course, from the opening potato soup, to a spoon of something I’m apparently not refined enough to know what it was, was unbelievable.


The closing course was a piece of the most amazing 60 day dry aged cuts of meat I ever ate in my life.  It might not seem like much food, but by the end of this little journey, you end up stuffed with food.


The next day, I texted John and said, “Holy shit dude, that was the best thing I ever ate,” and he responded, “Never doubt a Duvall when they give you a dinner recommendation.”
