What a great World Series! Two hours into game 6 and I thought I was watching the worst game in history, and two hours later I thought it might be the greatest game ever. Tony La Russa is one of the best baseball minds ever and it would not suck to be David Freese.

Attended a benefit concert at East End on Friday, a beery, claustrophobic, sweaty dive of a place = perfect for live music. The band I went to see, Mean Jeans was a no show but enjoyed the three other bands. Of note is the worst bathroom in all of rock and roll. I have been in some bad ones over the years (Satyricon, EJs come to mind) but this one is unreal! I will have one less bev next time so I can avoid using it.
- Frog Island Tikis
- I started carving tikis in 2000 after a trip to Maui. I love and appreciate Polynesian culture, but rather than follow traditional ways, I put my own rather twisted view on the matter. I build each tiki with a protective edge to watch over the owner's well being. Most of them are of redwood or cedar, but my brother-in-law Jimbo brings me excellent palm from California. I start with a chainsaw and then really get into them with chisels, files, and knives. I have read that the ONLY way to breath life into an idol is through use of hand tools, but if primitive man had access to a chainsaw I know he would have used it. Tikis are for fun. Mahalo- CY
