Financial Panther, eh?

Post Thanksgiving in Portland we had dry weather and even sunshine. So I tried to take fullest advantage with the days off work. Got a lot of time on the skateboard. Might be a while until that happens again. The usual evening exploits occurred as well.

We went to Koerner's birthday party and this is the only photo I shot.

Friday likes to lay on things but has been especially crazy about these shopping bags.

Got a trip to Newburg in. So much fun but where did all these little kids come from? This was probably the most people I've seen there even compared to the nicest summer days.

Cosmic Bowling... The problem with bowling shots is that they are always of the person's back.

Fuck it dude, let's go bowling.

Happy Birthday Danny!

Despite what it looks like here, we were having a good time.

The many faces of Lovejoy.

Amy and I all serious...

Alyson & Amy.

Nice spread.

Danny is hyped.

At this point in the night, Andrew and I should have been Karaoke-ing. We were singing The Outfield's "Your Love" and getting everyone to join in. This is also when I thought, "I should have a Karaoke machine at my house."

Drinking a beer like this looks good.

But gets a little messy.


Gearing up to get down.

Verg putting 'em on the glass at the Bye and Bye.

This is not necessarily the best photo of me and Amy but Andrew's background props makes it rad.

We keep it classy around these parts.

Apparently Andrew got knocked up.

Gearing up to shotgun beers.

Stoop dwellers.

We were treated to a little of the Mean Jeans unplugged.

Foosball is awesome.

On Thanksgiving Eve we went out the closest bar to the house. The Kickenbaque Lounge. The owner was a Phillipino TV star and is also a very nice guy. We rocked out some Karaoke. Good thing I used the bathroom or I would have forgotten where I was.

Thanks to Kristen and Colin for having us over for Thanksgiving.

These 2 are brothers from different mothers.

Yeah Thanksgiving!


Total Creeps.

I feel like I've been having a good time a lot lately. Portland is fun! Last Thursday after watching the premiere of the Habitat video at Department, Amy, Alyson, and I headed to Ground Kontrol to watch The Mean Jeans play a show. The band is made up of Andrew and Christian (our next door neighbors). It is without fail, always a good show. They switched up a little bit this time and Andrew played bass instead of drums. Which meant using a drum machine. Not feeling that as much but the show was still good.

Then on to the weekend. When there's nothing to do on a Saturday? Invite a bunch of dudes over for beers. Of course the old thumb-through-the-can shotgunning technique was used.

We had an impromptu jam session in the Mean Jeans' practice space AKA the basement next door. Kyle was testing his drumming skills.

Not sure what Christian is singing but it was pretty funny judging by Jonah's expression.

Seriously, check out the combo of the Pabst banner and the Rod Stewart shirt.

Jonny doesn't fit in houses with small doorways.

I believe this is when Dragonforce was cranked and epic air guitaring started happening.

Dual air guitars? Yeah we've got that.

Andrew is pure entertainment. He just kept doing jump kicks.

Foosball got so intense that shirts came off. And speaking of shirts, it should be noted the awesomeness of the combined shirts of Andrew, Alyson, and Christian. Way to come through as a house.

Then to cap off the weekend Micah was in town staying with the guy who loves Bacon. Micah, sucks that we didn't get to skate together at all. Next time.
