8 things bout me/thinking bloggers Award

Thanks to andydoodler for tagging me.
Eight things about me. I'll leave wether they are interesting up to the reader.
1. I split my head open when I was 1-1/2 yrs old thus ending my chance of going to Harvard or Yale as the best part got soaked in
to the carpet leaving me with lil less then a full deck to play with.
2. i like sake with my sashimi and asahi with my yakitori.
3. i use to be a carpenter.
4. celebrated my 25th birthday complements of my Uncle Sam at one of his many fine resorts.
5. lived in and got married in Nippon
6. lived in a tent near Pusan during the winter
7. drank ice cold san miguel on the beach while watching the sun set in the PI
8. saw the sun rise from the summit of Fujisama
added bounus
9.and its been said that i jumped out of a perfectly good airplane 2800ft above the desert floor
(see what a lack of brains will make you do)

I know the rules state that i'm suppose to tag 8 others but my geekyness only extends soo far, and i'll admit, i don't have the aptitude to
do what it takes to tag that many. (It took me a year just to figure out how to post copy on this blog.)
so ill just list em and if u see them around u can tell em they have been tagged

1. Roz Foster 2. Sweat Pea 3. Jennie Ho (chicken girl design) 4. Chocolat

5. Flossy P 6. lil Kim 7. emila yusof 8. Astrid Mueller (Potato Mamma Design)

Just wanna thank Twisselman for his bestowing on me the Thinking Bloggers Award
My list for the Thinking Bloggers Award

IF: paradise ll (footnote)
If i changed the name, Bright Morning Star to Jesus, and paradise to heaven, then said that the description of this residential community and what it would be like to live there could be found in the Bible, in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 21, how many of you would still be interested.

IF: signs

In the 40's Kilroy Was Here. In the late 60's and early 70's there was CORNBREAD. Phillies grand daddy of modern day graffiti. Thats right NY, he's the guy who started the writing on the wall. Darryl A. McCray " Cornbread" to me, started spraying his name as a way to get attention of a certain girl. (go figure). By the time he was done he had tagged every subway, trolly and bus route in Philly , not to mention a few police cars and wagons, just for fun. His biggest feats though were tagging the side of the elephant in the Philly Zoo, the top floor of a skyscraper being constructed right near City Hall, and the Jackson 5's jet (thats right he did lil michael jackson's and his brothers plane) when it landed in the "city of brotherly love" for a concert. It was still there when they returned to California.
....... but in the end he had to scrub clean every wall in Philly with his name on it. Today he's 52, still lives in Philly and works keeping youngsters from doing as he did in his prime. ....... but i gotta tell ya it was something to see, everywhere u went, he was there. I know cause i was there. HAHAHAHA !!! .....or was I?
Also, wanna thank everyone who gave me ideas as to how to finish the bottonm pic, in last weeks post. I did 2 both are posted now on my other blog, if anyone cares to look at some bad art.

IF: neighbor

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Neighbors, neighbors, neighbors
Have I got neighbors?
Have I got neighbors?
All day and all night

Have I got neighbors?
Ringing my doorbells
All day and all night

Ladies, have I got crazies?
Screaming young babies
No piece and no quiet
I got T.V.'s, saxophone playing
Groaning and straining
With the trouble and strife

Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
That we fuss and fight

Neighbors, do unto strangers
Do unto neighbors
What you do to yourself, yourself, yourself

Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
That we fuss and fight

Neighbors do unto strangers
Do onto neighbors what you do to yourself
Yourself, yourself, yourself
Neighbors, neighbors, neighbors

Neighbors, neighbors, neighbors
Do yourself a favour
Don't you mess with my baby
When I'm working all night
You know that neighbors
Steal off my table
Steal off my table
And doing alright, alright, alright

Neighbors do unto strangers
Do unto strangers
What you do to yourself

Sakura weeping
petals floating to the ground

In Japan it is now Hanami Season. Time to view the cherry blossoms, eat, drink, sing and compose haiku.
You ain't lived till you've done a hanami party right, so they say. I had mine last night.

In the 60's there were 3 guitarist that every one agreed on where the best, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck.
Now its over 40 years later and I just read an article this past weekend that said Clapton sold out and Page burned out.
It also so said when asking any famous guitarist who the best is ... one name rises to the top....
The last man standing.
This is my tribute to him, his music and the Lp he made in the 70's with the same name as this weeks word... WIRED
