i would just like to wish everyone and their families a merry christmas and a happy new year. i think this is the longest i’ve gone between postings. and it’s not that i’ve just become a lazy bum on the couch, it just signifies my shift in focus from one hobby (pleasure) to another (business). a part of me has always wanted to turn jonuts.com into something more than a random hobby blog… but a part of me didn’t have time, another part of me didn’t have the resources, a small part of me didn’t have enough passion to do it the way i wanted, and part of it was the domain name in general (hey, i started this as a personal site and it turned into a personality). i guess you could just say all the parts weren’t there. but that’s completely fine. i have lost nothing, and gained everything.
can you believe that next year will be 10 years since jonuts.com first started? and if we’re gonna go out, why not go out with a bang? so unfortunately, you will have to deal with me for another year… but i hope to make 2012 a year to remember and invite you all to join in on our shenanigans. that is, of course, if the end of the world is pushed back. – jonuts x com
saw this kid, astro, a few weeks ago and been hooked since. this hid is amazing compared to what’s out today. here’s his latest performance on the x factor along with some of his previous performances.
by now, most of you have probably heard the buzz around town about katsu burger in georgetown. well the buzz is much deserved. they’ve been open for a little over a month now and i have already been there a couple times.
this particular time i had the samurai select burger – beef patty, bacon, pineapples, tonkatsu sauce, kristen kreuk’s saliva, and everything else delicious that you could imagine.
you’ll also have a selection of fries. i’m addicted to the nori fries… which are packaged wittingly in chinese/japanese to-go boxes.
during my last trip to portland, i found this hidden gem. it’s an unworn, goods x stussy 3 year anniversary new era. this came out in 2006 and i found it untouched last month at compound in portland.
it’s my size too… sort of. i wear 7 1/4 and 7 3/8 new eras depending on the hat. this one fits on the small side so if anyone out there has a 7 3/8… trade me! or just give it to me and i’ll think you’re cool.
the morning after his passing, steve jobs’ coming biography skyrocketed to #1 on amazon’s best sellers list. yeah, i bought one.
As a writer, I was used to being detached, but I was hit by a wave of sadness as I tried to say goodbye. In order to mask my emotion, I asked the one question that was still puzzling me: Why had he been so eager, during close to 50 interviews and conversations over the course of two years, to open up so much for a book when he was usually so private? “I wanted my kids to know me,” he said. “I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”
obviously you have heard the news by now of steve jobs passing. i just wanted to show my respect to someone who has infinitely affected my life and will continue to do so with the blueprint he laid out. we should all strive to have a fraction of his attributes and character. in the back of my mind, when i’m working on one thing or another, i will think of what steve jobs did to make his one thing or another great.
“your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. they somehow already know what you truly want to become. everything else is secondary.”
“stay hungry, stay foolish.” steve jobs 1955-2011
almost settled in to the new spot… so i decided to take a day off. this is how how roel, bryce, lerrick, nicole, and i spent our sunday.
keith traded in two monteros for his new whip. and when i say new, i mean old as shit. i mean classy as shit. ladies, grab a second pair of panties. fellas, sorry for the blue balls. everybody, meet the white knight.
proud new owner pondering how much wiener he’s going to pull with this thing.
after acquiring the white knight, keith washed her (or him) up, turned on some tunes, and only then did he realize the white knight had some junk in the trunk. ladies and gentlemen, this thing is show-and-go yes-homo.
