This is the other design which surpasses time. Look at the surfacing and shape. Whoever pinned has total different DNA than rest of the human. Out of this world....

This was the design which got me excited and perhaps reason why I am designer today. There were many other exciting ones out there at this time but somehow this one and a few others struck out the most. I could be wrong but this one either became Lamborghini Espada or this was based on Espada... I know they are having a hard time but Forza Bertone!!

Braun Fan. I think it was somewhere from 70's... I just love this form. Never used it or touched but there is something about this that tickles ID's mind. Around $70 on Ebay.

Surfwise 2007 I thought this was going to be nice educational film about not following system but turn out to be kind opposite. Kids starting to complain how they were raised. Doing it while kids were listening is strange concept I do not understand. Funny kids turned out to be good singer. Surfs down, $5.

wow. oil money can get them to do that. But is it practical and sandy UAE?

Cannondale RAW bike. It said it was collaboration between G-star RAW and Cannondale. Nice design. I never seen the real thing but I just like it. The promo video had Daft Punk BGM with very nice detail video.

Sweet Beams, a litle Taiyaki shop in San Mateo. Nice interior and chief. Hope this one last a bit longer. The protion is too small and need more funky touch to menu. $5 for dozen tiny Taiyaki.

Arata Pumpkin patch near Half Moon Bay.
185 Verde Drive
Half Moon Bay, CA 94019
(650) 726-7548

The maze is fun and big. Nice selection of Pumpkin and starting to wonder how they make money...

Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. Nice Reggae band playing but other than that, it is just like any other festival in bay area with similar un-needed tent stores.

3D software called Pro-E. I have been fan of Solidworks for intuitive interface but too many of my partners uses Pro-E so I decided to learn a bit. Attended 3 day course and of course still not sure if this one is for me or not. To me all the 3D software has good and bad but Pro-E is in a way slowest to evolve to new phase. But at the same time if they evolve too much then die-hard old user might get lost and omplain. This experience tells me how important is to come up with brilliant method in the beginning. Filing system which saves new one everytime is kind a lame concept to me.

Camper Peu. Love this shoes. It is nice fit - not too rugged but not too skinny to hurt my feet. I had one with red lace but I need another one after 4 years of wear. Looks like red one is discontinued or turned into different style, so I bought new black with black lace. Wish they still had red one. It had interesting concept called Earth Contact which they claim to let static build up by cloth dissipate onto ground=earth via shoes, but it did not explain in detail how. How Latin of them. I think it is wonderful idea in dry area in winter but need to know if it works or not.
$145 from Shoemall.

I truely hate Hummer and people who drives it. People who drive them are true mother fucking low IQ idiots. But if I see this one, I will give them a break.

You Don't Mess With Zohan. Low IQ comedy with decent political theme to it. $6.

Galactica Season 3. Start it out a bit slow. New Caprica episodes are boring. Also it became more of space soap opera than escape-from-cylon-find-the-earth drama. In the end it kind self corrected it. The layer who represented Gaius was really good. Also XO is pretty good for old man as well. Wonder producers declared how many season to go like Lost.

Del Valle, Camp ground. Only one hour from South Bay but beautiful golden landscape with water. Must be crowded in Summer but it was sublime in fall. I would go there again.
Livermore CA 94550

Renwood Winery, Lodi 2005 Zinfandel. $9.99 at BevMo. Now it is under $10, this is better than Revenswood.

Hancock 2008. Starting Will Smith. Did not expect to pair up like that but why did it had to waste beautiful old BMW like that? Just for that $9.

Young @ Heart 2007. Soon or later we will be facing similar age as them and having something likeing to do is important. Nice documentary. $12.

Hermes did Citroen 2CV. Nice. They just did Bugatti too but this is more to my taste.
