Okay so I've been using FCPX for a bit now, using it to edit the TAP films my kids shoot. I understand all the pro gripes about OMF exporting and working with external systems. But that having been said, the basic functionality of the program is fantastic. I can do everything in FCP X that I could in FCP before, only this time it's slightly easier to do it. So far I'm impressed. I'm also thankful I don't need to export an OMF or do anything with external devices or film sync or other pro things. This is definitely for all-in-one situations.

First day of classes was today and it was simply awesome. A really great first day, especially compared to last year. And last year turned out so well, hopefully the good day is a harbinger of things to come.

Last night I had a dream that I was on La Brea Blvd (or maybe it was Highland) at the foot of the Hollywood Hills, looking south. I could see all the way down to the center of Los Angeles. It was sunny, slightly hazy, the kind of dreamlike look LA always seems to have, especially in your dreams. I woke up missing my old city, and in a way missing the version of me that lived there.

Best. Hotel. Ever. Impeccable service, great clean rooms, free wine happy hour at 5, great dining options (I especially liked the bakery on the side in the morning). and free bikes to explore the city! What more could you want? This is a hotel for people who aren't just looking for a place to crash. It's fancypants. It's good stuff. It feels great to go there and just relax and know that it's all taken care of. It's a beautiful hotel, in a perfect spot next to Pearl St, next to the water, next to Pioneer Square, convenient to public transportation, all of it. And the Kimpton touch means that you get a free wine happy hour from 5 to 6 featuring some lovely local and regional wines, and you can sit with your fellow guests and enjoy some time. They also bring out pizza from their excellent italian restaurant to munch on. They don't have to do this, you know. But they care.

Herbivore is cute, fun, engaging, and vegan! I am not vegan. My wife is. But I'm supportive, and I generally try to accommodate when I can. So I went into Herbivore looking for a vegan belt for guys, and also a vegan wallet to replace my old wallet. I found both of those at Herbivore. Their totebags are super high quality, last a long time. The one we've had for almost a year still looks brand new and we use it all the time. The one thing I wish they had was vegan men's shoes. Also clothing that was vegan but without so much threadlessy design logo on it. I guess that's not their thing, it's more stuff you would wear to be vegan and proud. I dig that. The cookbook section was also really cool to look at, because they had vegan cookbooks beyond the basics you see everywhere else. Stuff I've never seen before. And the people behind the counter were super nice. If you're in Portland, go visit Herbivore and get a cruelty-free belt or a shirt or something. You'll feel better and your clothes will look snappy.

Sweetpea Baking Co. is nestled in the same grouping as Herbivore and Food Fight, a little vegan enclave in Portland. It's surprisingly spacious and pretty inside, quiet and nice. Great for going and sitting down for a while. The clientele doesn't look especially "hippie vegan" or anything. That's not a bad thing if they do, but sometimes people want a different vibe. The food is fabulous. I had a bagel toasted like I like it with some sencha tea. My wife had Stumptown coffee and some coffee cake. All of these things were delicious. We took a cookie or two to go and some bagged coffee. I love that they have teeny cookies available for a buck. There are a ton of options. I wish they had more savory options, it was all very sweet. I would've had a croissant if they had it. A bagel is a fine substitute though. The only other reservation I have is that the lady behind the counter seemed a bit impatient with us. It was our first time and we were visiting Portland and had heard so much about this place, it was sad that she wasn't willing to wait 30 seconds for us to decide if we wanted a cookie or a brownie. It wasn't a big deal, she was probably having a day or something, and in the end it didn't detract from our experience. If we lived in PDX I would definitely come back again. I already miss the cookies.

Sit down. Let me tell you about my cell phone nightmare. I switched to prepaid years ago. It no longer made sense to pay 80 dollars a month for my iPhone 3G. I hated being tied down. I hated wasting gobs of money on tech. I wanted something cheaper. I went to Virgin Mobile, plunked down some bucks for a cheap Android phone, and 35 dollars a month for a few minutes of talk time. At first it was lovely. I had a great little phone, I enjoyed the freedom of no contract. But then the horror hit me, the same horror that hits many prepaid users. The horror is this: nearly all of the prepaid services use the Sprint network for their coverage (this is how Sprint makes most of its money). And Sprint's network service is TERRIBLE. So you're only paying 35 dollars a month, but you can barely use your phone. I couldn't get any bars in my apartment. I wanted to switch to a non-Sprint prepaid service, but Verizon and AT&T's offerings were not so hot in the phone department. Why couldn't I find a prepaid service with great coverage and decent phones? Oh hello, aio wireless! I saw the billboards all around Austin and did my research. aio belongs to AT&T, so the network coverage will be much better. It's no contract, and the plans are reasonable - 55 dollars a month for unlimited talk and text and 2GB of LTE data (after that you get throttled to 4G, but there are no overcharge caps). I walked in the store on Riverside and the two workers there were friendly and amazing. The phones were actually on and working, which was really nice. A lot of times the phones are off and there's a sticker of the screen on it, so you have no idea how fast it is. I bought my Samsung Galaxy Express and signed up and ported my number. I've ported numbers before. It's ALWAYS been a hassle, talking to people on the phone, getting authorization codes, all of it. But this time? FLAWLESS. The only hitch was I had to call Virgin and get some info, but that speaks more to the crappiness of Virgin than anything else. I was out of there with a new phone that was working and making calls in less than an hour. I paid for the phone, a 20 dollar activation (which is small compared) and the first month's service. They signed me up for autopay, which gave me the 3rd month of service free! So now I get a free month on top of a great phone with great service, no data overcharges, and AT&T's LTE network at 55 a month? Um, awesome?!!! And it is awesome. My Galaxy Express is like a Galaxy S3, only slightly less so. It's still crazy zippy fast and has a dual processor, LTE, front-facing camera, huge-ass screen, all of it. It's the most expensive non iPhone they have, and they have great mid-range options that you would be remiss to look at. Even their 50 dollar ZTE smartphone ran decently in the store. They also have Windows Phones if that's your thing, and if you already sprang for your HTC One Google Play Edition or whatever you can bring it in and just pay 10 bucks for a new SIM. That's UNREAL. I am so happy with the service I'm getting. I just made a call in my apartment for the first time in three years. I get reception everywhere. People around me ask about my phone and they consider switching once their contracts run out. This is absolutely the way to go. I hope this continues, because aio is going to get some MAD customer share with the system they have going. I'm so happy with my phone, with the aio service, with the people in the store, all of it. If you're on a prepaid situation and you're in the market for a new phone, run - do not walk, dammit - to aio and set yourself up right. Normally technology purchases are like shiny toys. Great for a day, but then the excitement wears off and in the end you have a phone and you're poor because you spent all your money. Not here. I can say that this phone (and more importantly the switch to aio) has demonstrably made my life better. I generally stick my reviews to restaurants because that's my thing. But I had such a great experience here I had to share. I hope aio moves to other cities soon.

Cheap, excellent cuts, fun people, very little wait. A gem. They know what the hell they're doing and it's no fuss.

Fantastic food. Simply fantastic. Their wines are also top notch and well-priced. They made a custom vegan dish for my wife which was better than anything anyone else ordered, and it wasn't even on the menu! We didn't even need to call ahead, they just accomodated us! I went back for a company dinner a few months later and the place didn't disappoint. It's just a phenomenal place and the wine list can't be beat anywhere else.
