Alys Beach

WOW! This place is going to be bliss.

About 5-6 years ago my band was gigging around Panama City, and some of us jetted over to Seaside, and as we were driving we saw this CRAZY WHACK FUNKY (you look like mc hammer on crack humpty) house like thing that was being constructed. Since then we have checked back when we were around..... AND this year it looks to be close to being finished.

This has got to be George Lucus' other beach home.

Across the street is the new community of Alys. Here are some pics we snapped....

FILM: Shooter & Reign Over Me

We saw 2 new movies this past week. Shooter & Reign Over Me are 2 great films in my opinion.

Shooter (R) had a good story, and a great cast, except for that one guy. While the film was pretty good over all, there were a few moments that were fairly predictable by hollywood standards. By the time the payoff / climax happens you forget about anything and everything that you don't like about the movie. Guys will really dig this one. DISCLAIMER: this was one of the most violent films that I have seen in a long while. Violent by the nature of the story, not for gross hollywood eye candy (hence the R rating). It helped bring the story to life.
We really enjoyed Reign Over Me (PG 13) as well. Great casting. Adam Sandler was almost perfect. You could tell that he was completely at home filming in New York. The story development stalled a bit towards the back side, but one can use their imagination to make up for it... or maybe I missed a key part of a scene. Reign Over Me, what a heart felt story. I hurt for this guy through the film. DING DANG IT!

Seaside, FL: Day 2 / More Food And Vibe

Great Southern Café (New Fashioned Southern Cuisine)
WOW. I had Grits A Ya Ya and homemade keylime pie. This dish would rival anything from any of my favorite Franklin spots.

Modica Market is always one of our favorites as always.

Café Spiazzia is one of our favorite spots. Their Balsamic Chicken Panino is off the chart!

Seaside (& area) pictures coming soon....

Seaside, FL: Day 1 / Café Rendez-vous

Ah yes. We are here and loving living....

A few years ago I met a frenchman in Seaside named Jean-Noel. He had this cool little wine-bar hang in Seaside. The decor was artsy with a Moroccan vibe. Last year while in Seaside, we were disappointed at their renovating timing.

Well, one of the first things we noticed while going to our cottage was the new addition to the Seaside's Central Square. As we walked by all the new tenets we saw the new Cafe Rendez-vous. Our old friend Jean-Noel had reopened his new location. It is the coolest hang in Seaside! What a vibe. Wifi, sushi, crepes, and a great wine list. Very classy, and chill.

If you are in Seaside go check out Cafe Rendez-vous.

Hopefully this will be the last post I do for a few days. 70 + degrees (F) and sunny tomorrow. Word.

Off To Seaside...

We are going to one of our favorite places in the states today, Seaside, FL.

Seaside has been the site of several movies. The Truman Show (w/ Jim Carrey) was probably the most popular.

I'll find some wireless at one of my hang outs while I'm there. Until then...

4 Years Ago....

... I married an amazing young lady. She is still young, and still quite amazing. She has to be extremely special to put up with me (hence the picture).

She is one of the smartest, funniest, and hottest women that I have ever known.

I am blessed.

(She kissed the lead singer)

*The Blogstar Readers Are A Bunch Of Cool People.... far as music preferences goes, you all love you some rock n roll. According to the poll from last FRIDAY, Rock has 77% of the vote. I knew I loved you all for a reason. :)

Most of you all obviously didn't vote. That makes me sad. I take it you don't like polls or don't like music. That too makes me sad. :(
