Honeymoon for 10?

All I'm going to say is this place makes me wanna make babies.

There’s a new planet in the solar system and it’s called Luxury. Actually, it is here on earth, on a little-known island called Nurai, located northeast of Abu Dhabi city.
The sheer scale of the project is awe-inspiring. The incredible multi-storey water villas alone will span 515 square meters each, and comprise three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a private rooftop garden with spa pool, private infinity pool, multiple decks, outdoor barbeque area, gourmet kitchen and concealed service quarters.
Yes a perfect honeymoon spot for future reference... but the price tag may be too much to handle alone... Honeymoon for 10?

The resort is due to open in 2010 and the prices for the residences start at €20 million
Thanks coolhunter.net

The Tijuana Panthers performed inside after the surf movie premier was finished playing outside.
A perfect ending to a wild saturday!
Shelter is a surf shop on long beach's hippest street: 4th.
Although Jo-Dilly and I (while trying to find parking) had run ins with people that should be locked up for a very long time. (Called eff words by one lady and then threatened to be shot by some dudes in their ugly car...Josiah just told them to try to keep up with us... not the smartest thing to mention...but they couldn't keep up, so good news all around.
Here, reap the benefits of our hard labor.

Thanks Shelter, thanks Tijuana Panthers and thanks Jesus we didn't get our heads blown off... welcome to Long Beach Josiah.

Paul Newman Dies at 83

Paul Newman died today at age 83. What an amazing career this man had.
I can't wait to tell my kids that I had the chance to meet him and took it.
When I was mater 'D at "Bigg's" Paul and a group of people came in. I sat them, talked to the group for a minute or so, talke3d to Paul about "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and then ask him what he would liek to drink... I brought him a lager beer. When he was leaving, he made sure to come over and shake my hand and tell me to "Keep up the good work kid" Those are the last words he ever spoke to me.

Anyways, go rent his movies. Cool Hand Luke is my next film to see.

We'll miss you Butch Cassidy AKA Paul Newman.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is one of my favorite films ever!

Keep making films in Heaven Paul.

Today! We LOVE LB Picnic!

You should come... I'll be there, so be like me and BE THERE.
Anyways, if its possible, come to this event at 1pm. More info, click HERE. Sample of things to come at the event from ETrine, click HERE

"The Great Wall"

Home to 49 of some of the best images in our studio.

Good evening my fellow blog readers and internet scavengers.
Checkout what I did today with the help (of course) of some amazing assistants.

The Wall is here. It is now being used as fuel in debates that the lippke brothers are better photographers and that production crew of theirs own the competition. Since the wall has been up, it has been the topic of every conversation throughout town the greater Belmont shore area. This Wall has become a backdrop for celebrity photos (See Douglas Jamison's visit) The wall is here and it will only get better!

Here are a few samples of the sexy new art piece.
Good work men!

Entering the production room.

Close up to the goodness.

Josiah was a big factor in getting the materials for the wall. Home Depot was like his candy store.

Jon Phelps collaborator,designer and best board holder around.

Me, Visionary,designer,Collaborator, master image mounter.

Luke Payne, Overview and spray adhesive master

Douglas Jamison...didn't help at all, he's just here for free monster beverages.
