phoenix – open air theatre

phoenix put on a pretty bomb show at sdsu’s open air theatre… i swear they had a different lighting setup for each song

neon indian opened for them — a lot of random sounds layered on top of each other… they output a TON of bass in some of their songs… i swear they hit the brown note a few times. anyway, i wasn’t much of a fan…

here are a few vids and pics i took with my phone. i didn’t realize til the last song that the camcorder feature had a CONCERT setting, which prevents microphone distortion and capturing loud music videos.

more things to try out

again, thanks to sam the cooking guy

london broil open-face sandwich

ingredients

  • 1-two pound london broil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 sourdough baguette
  • 2/3 cup horseradish sauce
  • 4 oz arugula leaves (or spring mix lettuce)
  • olive oil

steps

  1. heat grill to high
  2. season steak with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper
  3. cook until medium rare (roughly 5 minutes a side)
    when done, DON’T cut into steak immediately (juices will flow out and dry out the meat) — place under foil for about 15-20 minutes
  4. slice into very thin strips against the grain
  5. slice baguette lengthwise, drizzle lightly with olive oil and put under broiler until lightly browned (you could also place the bread on the grill for roughly the same effect)
  6. spread horseradish on bread and add a nice layer of lettuce on top, then top with sliced steak
  7. drizzle olive oil on top of that
  8. cut each baguette into nice bite-sized pieces
  9. boomski

pics — instead of london broil, i went with tri tip and spring mix salad lettuce (instead of arugula)… and yea, it was bomb

halloween is right around the corner

this might be the best idea for halloween this year… i’d need two other friends to wear “B” and “C” tho… the hilarious part is i want to pull this off at work!

don’t know what i’m referring to? i don’t suggest googling it — especially while at work… so here’s daniel tosh’s dissertation…

Dear Chase,
I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so much alike. I would love to meet you someday. It would be great to have a catch. I know I can’t throw as fast as you, but I think you would be impressed by my speed. I love you hair. You run fast. Did you have a good relationship with your father? Me neither. These are all things we can talk about. And more. I know you have not been getting my letters because I know you would write back if you did. And I hope you write back this time and we get to be good friends. I’m sure our relationship would be a real home run.
