Bento Box Bits of everything


June and July 2014


  • World Cup USA fever (short lived)
  • Saw Robyn and Royskopp perform at Marymoor Park (Fifi was in town too)
  • Jerry came to visit
    • We hiked a short hike at Mt. Rainier; it was quite misty/foggy - thankfully didn't rain
  • Saw John Legend perform at Chateau Ste Michelle
  • Stopped by Pridefest


  • Went to Orcas Island with Tu/Tram/May/Calvin/Mazzie. Mostly just hung out at the rented house, did some walks along the water front and lake, drove up to Mt. Constitution
  • Went to West Seattle Street Fair...
  • The following weekend SM and I went to Vegas for EVO. Unfortunately I didn't budget time well and we only got to see the Grand Finals on the last day at EVO. Next time I'll be sure to spend an extra day there for merch and casual play!
    • Mostly just walked around, gambled, spent time at the pool and had dinner with my coworker Tiffany and her husband at L'Atelier
    • Us at Bellagio
    • Our view at EVO
  • Dimsum with Tu and Tram's moms
    • Me and Mazzie. Our first picture together
  • Sail boat ride for Navy's birthday. Despite the cold and wet experience, it was nice to be there to see Danny propose.

Workout Music Redux

These past few years my music taste has been through a couple of different phases thanks to new friends. Indie pop/dance, then EDM, and now currently mostly hip hop. I've been through these phases in the past before (minus the indie dance music, that's relatively new all around) so maybe it'll be a cyclical theme in my life - although I don't see myself getting back into j-pop...

Since I've been working out again lately, music selection has had a bigger importance since it keeps me hyped while working out. Specifically for lifting, I am reminded of when I compiled a list of my favorite workout tunes back in 2007.

I should create some new genre-specific workout playlists since most of those songs were metal/rock. This past year I've been listening to:

  • Rick Ross - No Games "ft. Future"
  • Lil Wayne - Right Above It
  • 2 Chainz - We Own It (Feat. Wiz Khalifa)
  • 2 Chainz - Feds Watchin
  • Ace Hood - Trials and Tribulations
  • Ace Hood - Hustle Hard
  • Rick Ross - Pirates
  • Trinidad James - Ea$tside
  • 2 Chainz & Future - Same Damn Time
  • 2 Chainz & Future - Got Dammit Remix
  • 2 Chainz - Riot
  • Lil Wayne - Fireman

Coheed and Cambria

I got into Coheed after Rock Band 1 came out; finally got to see them perform. Went with Calvin who is also a big fan- they played many of their hits and a lot off their new double album. One of the best rock shows I've ever seen.


  • Awesome performance, sound mix and set list
  • Friendly crowd, not much pushing/shoving
  • Huge dude next to us didn't move at all the whole concert
  • Not many camera/video takers in the crowd


  • Someone laid a few stinky farts in the crowd during the show
  • Tinnitus
