My B-day Gift to y’all :Chocolate Mousse Tart #yourewelcome

Hello world,

I know its been a lil over a week…if I was to post on the EXACT day yesterday, it wouldve been on my B-day.

Yeah, yesterday I, Ole-Bill got older. Gotta say, 27…dont get it.

Sure I’m inched up to next year where I can say I’m “DAMN NEAR 30″…but eh, the whole gettin older thingy, not sure I get it at all.

So I pretty much ate BBQ w/my folks and then in the evening gathered w/a small group of friends and ate cake and FROYO (thats Frozen Yogurt).

Sometimes if you in the mood for it, I say FROLO!!! (FROYO and that 4 letter acronym I refuse to say by itself…)

It was nice, I aint really fond of HUGE parties where I gotta plan it, and then invite a crap ton of folks where I gotta bounce around every convo and fake LOL-ing cuz I have no idea whats going on in the convo.

I called my b-day party “MY SUPER GERIATRIC 27th”, its a spoof  of that MTV show waay back in the day where obnoxious 16 years olds got rando celebs at their party and unnecessary luxury cars on their b-day.

All while MTV filmed them actin like goofy brats…I wonder what happened to a lot of those kids?

Think they survived high school? Think those vehicles survived?

When I hit 16, When I had to go to skool ,I took a walk (PASSION PIT)…. not down a dirt road, it was a few blocks from mi padres house.

I just imagine their 17th b-day prolly sucked.

Anywhos MOUSSE TART:

Chocolate Mousse Tart

Chocolate Mousse Tart…Every week in my class, it’s literally a surprise on what were making.

And what I don’t have, equipment wise…I’m SOO under prepared most of the time.

#DONTJUDGEME… also don’t tell my teacher….SHHH!!!!

That week, I learned, the fancier the Chocolate, the better the Flavor.

The sweetness, the chocolate-ness.(Not sure thats a word) hinges on the quality of your chocolate.

That’s my tip..so that cheapmilk chocolate…prolly not a good idea. Just eat it, not bake w/it.

Another tip: When you use Whipped up Heavy Cream (not COOL WHIP) make sure its whip to a state of where it’s Pour-able but yet got some peaks.

Then you fold.

Chocolate Mousse Tart

As you can see heeyahh!! I’m sorta gettin better w/my piping SKILLZ.  sorta.

SO… my word of advice as you get old.

Set Goals. Not Expectations. Expectations = False Hope. Goals= Progress.

Also 26 was an odd year any way, after 25, what else is there to look toward? 30?

Ehh

So, I’ll just stop there, before I go further OFF the rails….Til next week:

Subscribe/Like and/or Comment. I do read these ya know…really.

Also, is it “FALL” where y’all are? its still 90 degrees and humid down south… #wompwomp

Ben Rector

Ben Rector came into town at the House Of Blues and I figured I’d go see him live. I’ve become a fan of his through hearing his name constantly from friends as well as my roommate playing his music a whole bunch. When I got there, didn’t recognize who the first act was.As I noticed I was one of the few people in the room over the age of 21. Those kind of moments make me sad about me being an old fart. But photography note: these were shot in Manual. They look dark and with some editing I got ’em to look decent. So if you think they suck, I worked with VERY low lighting. Take that with a grain of salt people. If you have some tips, let me know too. But nevertheless, Enjoy:

Dave Barnes @ the House of Blues

This past Saturday night, I went and saw one of my favorite singers Dave Barnes @ the House of Blues. I figured I treat myself to a late b-day gift, last saturday I had to work. (Note: Don’t ever do it.) Anyway, I saw in once at a show in Kansas with Matt Wertz, them two together was a good show. Dave’s great live. Sounds like his records. But I forgot how much of a comedian he is as well. He told a couple of random but funny stories. The main one being of his TV debut on a soap opera. In all a good night. Oh and btw photo note, it was hard to shoot. There was very little lighting in the room and on top of that they moved around a lot. So these were the best I got going through my film. But enjoy.

Downtown Wondering

Yesterday I had to work, and i figured since I was gonna have to be downtown most of the day, why not do some random shooting. Photography that is. I was looking for the House of Blues, but I couldn’t find it. Eh, I figured it must’ve been farther down from where I was walking. But nevertheless, here’s what I found in one-part of downtown. Enjoy. Oh btw, if you like what you see, feel free to comment, subscribe or whatnot. No big commitment or nothing, just like to know what y’all think of this. But Enjoy.

It’s Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! I always remembered loving Labor Day just because of the fact that I aint have to go to school. 3 day weekends, loved ’em. Well I also remember that it was the beginning of one of my favs: Football. I love football, college or pro, it’s always entertaining to watch during the Fall. So I decided to post some photos of  my time @ the Texans pre-season against the Cowboys. We smoked them bad, but I got some shots of stuff going down during the blowout. During half-time there were theses 2 guitarists playing. Of course I gotta do it all artsy and put ’em in black and white. But enjoy and Happy Labor Day.

Fiesta!! Fiesta!!

Last weekend there was a Mexican Fiesta where I used to live and naturally I had my camera w/me. Took some shots. No big deal. I enjoyed the dancing and the party atmosphere of it. Good Times people.  Enjoy.

Mass St. Musicians

While on my way to a meet up w/some friends, there was these 2 guys playing out on Mass St. downtown. Just jamming around, trying to make a few dollars in the process. They were both versatile because the pic above had them one way and then 10 minutes later they swapped instruments.  This is one of the reasons I’m digging this town during the summertime.
