5 THINGS I WAS SUPER PUMPED ABOUT IN 2015, AND WILL PROBABLY STILL BE SUPER PUMPED ABOUT FOR A LONG TIME, EVEN THOUGH 2015 IS OVER (in no particular order):
– The amazing music coming out of Germany right now, especially the albums Faded Love by George FitzGerald, Powers of Ten by Stephan Bodzin, and pretty much everything Boys Noize is doing.
– All of the books in “The Asian Saga” by James Clavell
– Watching a herd of American Bison at a watering hole just before sunset in Yellowstone over the summer.  I can’t stop thinking about that.
– How good these polka dot Nikes feel on me, because years of skateboarding, being an idiot, and wearing boots or vans has totally destroyed my feet:image1.PNG
– The first time I road a motorcycle on a frozen lake.
