God it was so amazing… I got to the beach bright and early and suprisingly the beach was empty. Any direction I looked the horizon line layed clear with no people. For some reason I brought a surf board; I don’t remember buying one though. None the less I was quiet happy to have the open waters to myself.
The last time I surfed was 2 summers ago. I was a little bit afraid of how I would fair. Would the muscles in my body remember what to do and how to balance? As the whitewash slapped against my thighs I smiled and pushed the board out in front of me, slid my body on top and began paddling. I pushed myself past the waves that were reaching for the shore and found a spot where I was satisfied to take off from. I straddled my board in the open water and enjoyed that moment of solitude before eyeing the swell that was going to break into the perfect wave. Quickly and aggressively I stroked the water hoping I would gain the speed I needed. I felt the momentum of the water behind me taking me and my board forward. The time was now. I rose up on my board in perfect position… the water beneath me felt smooth….
… then I woke up in a dank and dark room… curled in a bawl… with the blankets pulled around my head… shivering from the cold. I wanted to cry.

A Night in With Boy George: A Chillout Mix
Let’s back up to August 2002, out from Moonshine records comes a mixed compilation by Boy George titled “A Night Out with Boy George”. Overall the best way I could describe it as is techno house; loud with lots of heavy beats, and in my opinion a fairly obnoxious mix of sounds. Fast-forward to October …
if you do something good, will something good happen to you in a physical sense, as opposed to merely feeling good about yourself?

Gas prices are stupidly expensive these days, and with the high insurance rates, taking the bus can seem like a good alternative. Heck, its getting to the point where paying a cab fare is probably more worth while than driving your own car..
The stomach is grumbling and you can’t ignore the call. You need to refuel with something that’s not going to go right through you like some kid on a waterslide. The answer is simple… sammiches.
Gameboy Advance SP
Two years ago I bought a Game Boy Advance just before my trip to Vegas. I figured it would provide some good entertainment while performing the ritualistic boring wait in the airport. Sure enough it did a job well done. My only complaint was that it was always hard to see the game. I always …

Summer Party Naval Styles at Seven RestoLounge
Oysters, like wine are affected by terroir and these Miyagi’s flavor profiles ranged with one showing a cleaner, almost tropical profile and the other being more salty, marine driven. As I was devouring the seemingly endless plates put in front of us, I sipped on a glass of fine sauvignon blanc.

Predictions 2010.. and beyond!
So 2010 eh? Almost but not quite (no year zero they say) another decade? It seems like just yesterday that the world was waiting for Y2K. R4NT started publishing in March 2001, so we’re not quite 10 years old yet, but in internet years we are already a senior citizen.
No matter what, the reality of Nelson Mandela is something that deserves screen time. Should this film even remotely intrigue the masses to take interest in this figure, the world would likely benefit greatly from it.
