I have decided that it is time for me to return to school to become an elementary school teacher. It's been a long time coming. Being around teachers all my life, it was bound to rub off on me! All joking aside, I'm taking this seriously and want to make a difference in this world. It all starts with the children. Good teachers are a necessity! The fact that you all can read this means your teachers did their job!!

SWORN VENGEANCE live at Gilman 4/14/2000

Here's another show I shot from 2000. After I left Downshift, they changed the name to Sworn Vengeance. A bunch of member changes later they played this show in Berkeley, CA.

Here's a blast from the past. I don't think many (if any) people have this show. It's live at the Grange Hall in Danville, CA where a lot of the hardcore shows happened in the late 90's East Bay. (I had this shot in black and white on purpose. Just trying out different things with the video camera.) Another place that we played was The Bombshelter in Oakland, CA. Enjoy!

PHANTASM...30th Anniversary 2009

PHANTASM is one of my all time favorite horror films. I've seen it many, many times over the last 30 years. Great story, effects (for the time) GREAT music and an overall eerie vibe that movies costing 100x more fail to achieve. The Tall Man fully creeped me out then and now. I never get tired of watching it. Don Coscarelli and team created a classic that stands the test of time. Right up there with the original Halloween, Friday The 13th and Nightmare On Elm Street films.

I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary to Phantasm!
