All Star by Smash Mouth but it's my newsletter

January 2020

A little late cause life happens. I almost didn’t send this, but I (un)ashamedly spent a lot of time throughout 2020 collecting these videos. (there are many many more) You can scroll all the way down to the bottom for a quick bulleted update. February’s newsletter will be coming out in a few days.


Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me

I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead

Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running

Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never shine if you don't glow

Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid

And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

It's a cool place and they say it gets colder
You're bundled up now, wait 'til you get older

But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
The water's getting warm so you might as well swim

My world's on fire, how about yours?
That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored

Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
All that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show, on get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas?
I need to get myself away from this place
I said, "Yup" what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change

Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go (go!)
You'll never shine if you don't glow

Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold


PHEW…..

Congrats, you made it. Just a few updates

  1. I finished my retail job at Macy’s in mid-January. I now work at a natural wine and provisions store in Atwater Village called Wine and Eggs. Come visit for excellent and reasonably priced natural wine, me, a $26 can of clams, a $50 bag of chocolate candy, or $13 eggs, or celebrity sightings.

  2. I planted my first garden! I am trying my hand at some herbs, arugula, kale, and carnations in my backyard right now. This is a totally improvised effort. I only followed the planting instructions on the back of the seed packets and using a small plot in my backyard as well as a few planters.

  3. My January mix for Internet Public Radio can be found and listened to here! :) The next newsletter will include my mix made in collaboration with CLUB DIEGO. <3

  4. My hair is getting long and I’m stoked. As proof, please enjoy this google meetup screenshot since I cannot take photos with my garbaggio flip phone.


~be well, stay curious, stay in touch!

Talk soon,
