The First Four

Hey Team, Ready for some whys? I’ll start explaining why some of the items made the list and just cut it off when I hit about a page so I can continue tomorrow. This will probably be a fairly long process. As I mentioned before, I don’t have a lot of good answers for why…

Stories Behind Stories

Hey Team, I’ve been working on a narrative that ties together this whole wacky adventure for a couple weeks now. (Some might call it a book…I don’t want to get that excited.) As a result I’ve had to put a lot more thought into the whys and hows of Amtrekker than I’ve ever had to…

(The burden of being broke, unemployed and in a strange city without friends.) Naturally it didn’t take long before I started getting REALLY depressed. You…

The Daily Buzz

The Daily Buzz

Hey Team, I was on a morning show called The Daily Buzz this morning! They gave me a call a couple days ago from a San Diego number but I didn’t have my phone on me. When they called again yesterday I couldn’t answer because I was in an attraction at EPCOT. Eventually I called…

Dirty Minds

Dirty Minds

Hey Team, Here’s a little something I ran across yesterday that kind of (read: REALLY) bothered me. Granted, I was waiting at the airport ticketing desk in Los Angeles at four in the morning on no sleep so I probably wasn’t exactly in a happy-go-lucky mindset to begin with… Behind me I hear something fall.…
