A Quilt Made With Love

March 6th, 2013 | Posted by pmpax in Cool Items - (Comments Off on A Quilt Made With Love)

My dear dear dear friend Pooma from WoW crafted me a quilt that is pure WIN! Some months back I inquired if she was up to the challenge of making a quilt that incorporated my Bloodhoof Brigands guild crest, which is of a Tauren with thunder bolts behind him.

Well, let me tell you, when I laid it out on the table after taking it out of the box it arrived in, I was thunderstruck. Just beautiful and lovely and full on awesome. Handcrafted and made with love! Now I get to snuggle up in my one of a kind, totally WoW-tastic, limited edition, ultra Pooma crafted quilt.

Feels the Love!!!!!

Awesome Burrito

March 6th, 2013 | Posted by pmpax in Food - (Comments Off on Awesome Burrito)

So the other day I went and met up with my buddy Sim for burritos. We went to Freebirds in the Marina. Let me tell you the place rocked! The dude who served us and put our burritos together was a total pro how he flipped, wrapped and worked all of the various elements into one massive burrito. It was a burrito work of art! I was like dude, that rocks! I told him he was the Kobe Bryant of burrito flipping, the Burrito Momba! He was all luaghing. It was refreshing to see someone in L.A. actually work with a smile and have a cool attitude.

I went over to pay and where the manager greeted me with a big, warm smile. I noticed Erin was her name and she was one who you just automatically like and felt right at home with. I told her how impressed I was with everything and that I was going to write about it on my blog, as well as mention it on the Matt and Pat Show. So if your in the mood for a burrito, go to Freebirds and nom nom nom. If Erin is there say hello too! I am so going back!!!!








Iron Man 3 Trailer

March 6th, 2013 | Posted by pmpax in Movies - (Comments Off on Iron Man 3 Trailer)

Tony Stark is back! I have been looking forward to this since I read that Shane Black was involved as the writer and director! It goes without saying that Robert Downey Jr. will be fun and engaging to watch and excited to see Don Cheadle back as Rhodes. It wasn’t until the very last scene in Iron Man 2 where Stark and Rhodes interact with one another that I felt they indeed life long buddies, that I bought into Cheadle as Rhodes. Cheadle is a great actor, so totally pumped to see how he and Downey further their relationship. Lastly, Sir Ben Kingsley is playing Mandarin!!!!! He certainly is not playing Gandhi in this role!

Kobe Has That Look!

Kobe is dare I say it, the greatest basketball player of all time! We can argue this Ad nauseam, but there is no doubt how his determination, focus, drive and “Eye of the Tiger-ness” is unparalleled both on and off the court.

Old School Dunk!

Winning Shot!

The Black Mamba baby!

Missing My Trees and The Owls

March 3rd, 2013 | Posted by pmpax in Reflections - (Comments Off on Missing My Trees and The Owls)

Yesterday evening, I went over to my friends Vincent’s place to watch a movie on Padre Pio. He was a Capuchin monk (an offshoot of the Franciscans), who was a mystic and one who had the stigmata of Christ. One of the enigmatic aspects of Padre Pio was the gift bestowed by God to “read’ the sins of those who he came into contact with. He would hear confessions for hours on end, oftentimes ten hours at a time. There are many miracles of healing and other such wondrous occurrences that are arbitrated to him as well. He truly lived a life devoted to Christ, which was filled with suffering in the midsts of his service to others. What I find so intriguing is that he is very much a contemporary of our times, since he lived between 1887 to 1968. I need to read more of his life.

It was refreshing to watch a movie that was “faith” based, for as much as I enjoy my action films, sitting down with a buddy and partaking a film that deals with the lifelong struggles of a man who is trying to follow as faithfully as he can the life of Christ. The life of a Christian is one lived within the shadow of the Cross, where there is the reality of suffering, ones own, as well as those around us. Yet, it is also coalesced with inner joy of doing our own little part within the much grander and mystery of this wondrous quilt that God is crafting throughout our life. Hope admixed with long-suffering, along with forgiveness and love in light of hurts and sorrows are the cornerstones of the Christian life.

While the film was four hours long, it totally held my interest as to what going to happen to Padre Pio as he tells these stories of his life to a visiting Vatican priest who is there to get to the truth of just who is sitting before him. I called how the film would end once the main antagonist confronted Padre Pio. Vincent remarked, “Oh, your good!”

Afterwards, I came home and went to bed, only to be awoken from a dream where I heard my mom call out my name. Towards the later part of her life, she would call out to me at night if she needed something, knowing that I would always awake at the sound of her voice. Oftentimes, it was just to sit there with her to help keep the loneliness and fear away for a bit.

After some time laying awake, just listening to the silence of the night, all was interrupted by the unmistakable drunk laughter of my new neighbor. It was at 2:30 am, when she, her husband and a friend of theirs must of come home from a night out on the town, for they cranked up some horrid music and let the alcohol flow.

I couldn’t help think of how I missed the beautiful and venerable old Eucalyptus trees that once stood proudly where now sits their “lovely, contemporary” home. I just laid in bed longing for the nights where I would hear the leaves rustling as the wind moved through the trees. I missed too hearing the family of owls that made their home within the strong, study branches, where they would call out at night for any who might hear their sonorous hoot…hoot…hoot.

Eventually, the little soiree ended. All was quiet and still once again. I wondered what Padre Pio would have thought. I wondered where my beloved owls have moved to and if they managed to find a good home for themselves. I wondered how mom was in the afterlife. I got up and sat with Jake our Golden Retriever. Dogs always are reassuring, just ask Charlie Brown.

I miss my beloved tress and the owls.
