Life of Pi by Yann Martel

What a story, what a book, what insight? This book deserves all the praise. I haven't seen the movie yet but I'm pretty damned sure it could not have encapsulated what was fully portrayed in the book.
It's a story of life in all its meanings. Read it.

The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien

So this is what really kicked it all off. The whole mess about elves, orcs, hobbits, etc. Well actually "The Hobbit" by the same author started it all but The Lord of the Rings pushed it into the stratosphere.
Three volumes of two books each, all weaved into a perfect story. It delivers... friendship, love, power, rage, good, evil, youth, old age and everything inbetween. If you've even got a bit of imagination, you'll find something in this work to love.

A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin.

He's not even done writing this series and I still know it's one of the greatest stories ever put to paper. Though I've read all the currently published books I'm already reading them again in preparation for what's to come... whenever that will be. The series drags you into the world of fantasy literature kicking and screaming if you've never indulged, and if you're a longtime lover of that genre there's probably nothing you won't like about it. I was the former, and now I think I might be hooked. This is one of those works of literature that is helping to, like it or not, define our entertainment age. Must read.

DO NOT expect the current or even next HBO show to be anything like the books. My best advice is take the books for what they worth and take the show for what it's worth. Don't compare the two.

Peet's Coffee Big Bang

Pretty deep espresso flavor, however on the finish I have to say that I do pick up a little sweetness and fruit. It's especially there if you sip a bit of water with it. The initial notes however are just a deep earth and cocoa, so you have to wait for the sweeter changes if that's what you like.
Not bad. I can appreciate this.

Yea, I'm drinking a blend right now, the Stereo blend, 50% Ethiopian Idido and 50% Colombian Pitalito, it really has those bright fruity notes but they are more of a Citrus fruitiness...Although I pick it up on first sip and the finish is more coco/chocolate with some nuttiness in the background. Heart roasts their coffee light but the Stereo is on the lighter end of medium. As for Pete's, when their coffee is roasted medium and is very fresh (within a week on the roast date) it can be very good, its when they burn their coffee that turns me off.

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

This is one of the most eye opening books I've ever read. After reading this book my entire outlook on pretty much everything changed. If you've ever felt like you should be capable of earning more ... sit down and read this book. It's not gonna make you a millionaire, but I'm betting the reasoning presented in the book will help you achieve a certain level of financial freedom you didn't have before.
You'll have a paradigm shift.

Starbucks Pike Place

The first sip was very interesting because I got a burst of sweetness. Concurrent sips mellowed into a nice cocoa, earth, roasted nuts and chocolate. Have it with some water... that seems to bring out the hint of sweetness. It's pretty damned good. Well balanced.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

One of the greatest books... ever. Reads like a poetic short story, and hits you like an ancient, self-help scroll. One of those that I come back to when I wanna wax philosophic on the most basic of human traits and emotions.

Towards the end of his life, Benjamin Franklin thought about a few things regarding how to responsibly free the slaves. The following committees were what he had in mind:

A Committee of Inspection, who shall superintend the morals, general conduct, and ordinary situation of the free Negroes, and afford them advice and instruction…

A Committee of Guardians, who shall place out children and young people with suitable persons, that they may (during a moderate time of apprenticeship or servitude) learn some trade or other business…

A Committee of Education, who shall superintend the school instruction of the children and youth of the free blacks. They may either influence them to attend regularly the schools already established in this city, or form others with this view…

A Committee of Employ, who shall endeavor to procure constant employment for those free Negroes who are able to work; as the want of this would occasion poverty, idleness, and many vicious habits.

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

Walter Isaacson writes some great biographies and this one is no exception. The guy takes Steve Jobs out of the realm of tech legend and folklore into our reality filled with mistakes, accomplishments, pain and exhilaration. Not to mention you truly get some insight into what an asshole Jobs truly was... and what the essence of his actual genius encapsulated, which more than likely wasn't tech.

Rocky Patel The Edge Habano in Torpedo

Pre-Light - Oops, forgot that part this time. My bad.

Initial light up - Deep roasted nuts, touch of bitterness, lots of earth and some sweetness.. Like powdered chocolate.

First third - Pretty deep earthiness, cocoa and red pepper come to the forefront. Actually pretty nice. Other note is a sweetness, but not much at all.. faded.

Second third - Red pepper takes over. Powdery cocoa is still there but the pepper is so strong it starts to feel like your lips are burnin’ a bit. Definitely still has that earthiness as well.

Last third - Pepper dies down quite a bit. Earthiness moves to the forefront. Not as much to think about here, but a good end to the stick taking you down from the flavors.

Body - Full

Strength - Medium/full

Construction - Great construction. You do need to watch where you clip it at because as with any torpedo it’s hard to gauge when the draw is gonna get too tight because of the tar build-up. Good burn except for the first third, which needed a touch-up.

Overall - A good stick even though it’s one of my least favorite brands. This must be one of those “pepper bombs” people talk about liking. Not my thing however. I’d recommend it for those who enjoy that kind’a thing though.

Probably the best restaurant in the entire area. The food is usually prepared very well and the ambiance is well thought out. One star is subtracted because for some reason they haven't quite gotten the spacing between courses down yet. You can basically count on appetizers, main courses and desserts being about 4 minutes apart or less. I've literally had to send main courses back so they could wait until we had sufficient time to enjoy the appetizer.

This is an excellent hotel. The restaurant is a touch on the pricey side but can be considered worth it. So why didn't I give it all "excellents"? - the tap water smells a bit funky. Is that all throughout the city or just in this hotel? I have no idea... but it left a lasting impression.

Great view of the Jet d'Eau and about a 5 minute walk out to where it is so you can get up close and personal with it. You'll catch a lot of nice pics of swans and ducks in the lake if you're there at the right time.

Just did a home purchase through RoundPoint. The good: They are definitely capable of getting your loan done under 30 days. They give great rates.. and I mean really great. So far, they still seem like a legitimate company and I haven't seen anything that would seem like they're trying to pull a fast one. During the initial phases the loan officer is extremely reachable and personable..asks all the right questions and gives detailed answers. The bad: Once you get past the pre-qual with your loan officer, everything seems to be on a conveyor belt system. There seems to be very little true communication between their own departments and things not falling into the cookie cutter aspect of their loan process might get missed. You'll find yourself waiting for days on something which seems to be sitting on someone's desk (laptop). Nothing will get done until you call. Once you call.. it seems they act very quickly. But why should you have to call? Overall: Keeping in the back of your mind that a home is something most people pay on for 30 years, you'll find the stress of dealing with RoundPoint not so high after realizing you just got a great rate. So from a financial perspective.. it's a winner. If you can't live without the comfort of the loan company being extremely hands-on and communicative at every single step of the way, then head elsewhere until RoundPoint gets better at this. I would like to make mention however of the loan processor Laura Stauffer on the RoundPoint team who seemed to work amazingly quick, was responsive and understood that she should actually care. She made up for the seemingly cold inner workings of this mortgage company by quite a bit. So four stars because I'm more focused on the money saving aspects of the company and I did get my closing in less than 30 days.

This is a pretty good experience. Seeing the busy nature of the facade of this cathedral makes for a lot of wonder. The inside of this thing is not mind-blowing but it is still pretty nice. If you don't have much time then just order your tickets online so that when you get there you have the convenience of using a special gate at a designated time which allows you access immediately. The line without a pre-ordered ticket is pretty long starting very early. Even though the construction takes away from the experience, you still wont be sorry. All that said.. from what I've seen of other written reviews, this cathedral is overrated but if you're in Barcelona anyways.. you should take a look.

Great views of the city and the sea. A bit difficult getting up there to park, but unlike what most people say - the walk from the lowest parking lot is not bad at all. No problem and well worth the views. Inside, I actually got a chance to see a service in action and tourists were funneled through just to have a glimpse and take pics of the inside.. which ain't bad. If you're in Marseille.. go there. No question.
