    Oh man, we did this on my ship in Hawaii. It was cookin' on the North Shore, and we were at sea all weekend. Our captain had us drive by a few miles offshore and called me personally up to the bridge so that I wouldn't "miss the chance" to look at it. He meant well and was an amazing wonderful man, but the whole time I was thinking, "dude W.T.F.!!!! you're killin' me!!!"

    ;) She's a Pisces, so that's a start.

    Also, I'm surprised that its been pretty flat this week. With my luck, I thought it'd be going off while I'm at home doing Daddy duty.

    Vedder is pals with Laird Hamilton. Sundance has a program, Iconoclast. Vedder wrote a song about Laird.

    Yeah it was a better era before zero tolerance. The usher was talking to a cop when we approached. she had the fatty behind her back. It was either because she was hot or because the place was already full of smoke, but the piggy didn't notice.

    Congrats, McLovin' and live aloha....Chicharronne, that is epic! Would have loved to see him/them then, but i wasn't here until the end of '76. I saw The Wailers a couple months ago up in Philly, Aston Barrett was the only original member...it was amazing with just the family man kickin' it, i can't even begin to imagine how awesome it must have been to see Bob in flesh and bone.

    Yeah, he's even talked about Slater taking him to crazy waves that have jeopardized the future of the band.

    My buddy just sent me a picture of an old spot we use to surf that is breaking again. It is firing, nice long barrels and light winds. Luckily, I am sitting at work. So I guess I would give up a day of surfing for work, but not by choice. And to those out there that are new Dads, congrats. Nothing better than surfing with your kids and seeing their improvement and overall stoke.

    defiantly not give up surfing for sex.. . you can have sex anytime. how often do you get good waves? for me not very often on the east coast. I'd only give up surfing for a good day for money
