broken dreams

I had a really good convo last night with Snowone about getting old, being broken down, warm water vacations, chicks, and shredding. Seems he's having a similar mid-life inspection as myself, but he's only 35. Give it 5 years brotha, it only gets worse. I'm turning 40 in the fall. Already? Shouldn't I be something more? I'm still waiting to figure out what I'm going to do with my life while every asshole my age has a family and owns their home. Oh well, I've got some kick ass surfboards, a road bike, and a Lazy Boy. Mentally I feel like I'm still a drunken 18 year old, but my whole body is breaking down at an alarming rate. I may not even be walking by the time I'm 50. My fake hip will probably need a revision in about 5 years and who knows what will happen with that recovery. So I'm going to start my mid life crisis today. Today is the start of The Decade of Mid Life Crisis Hefe. And I will continue throughout my roaring 40's, unless I'm confined to a wheelchair, colostomy bag, or adult diaper. Every penny and spare moment will be spent pursuing surf and shred....or slothing in front of TV. I'm gonna surf and shred everywhere I've always wanted. Kinda like a bucket list for future gimps. Pavones, Bali, Peru, and Indo to name just a few. This morning I called to get a price for a flight to Bali October 8-25. It's ON!


  1. I thought I was going through mid-life crisis @ so I did a month long trip to Bali (Oct 08). When I got back things were not better, actually more complicated. You'll understand what I'm talking about. I'm pretty much in the same place as you and Snowone, but at least you own a Lazyboy. My vote is with Peru. Northern Peru where it's sunny.

  2. You got one walk thru this life, so you might as well enjoy every step of the way. Some of them will hurt, while others will allow you to blow gallons of jizz.
    The point being, who gives two fucks what others are doing. YOU need to enjoy the journey more than the destination.
    At least that's what I keep telling the boys while I'm paying for a house, cars, wife, kids, etc...fuckers.

  4. it's contagious as AIDS. you're fucked.

    Word Yo. The journey's rad. A future is rad, too. The way your rats are shooshing, I see a bright future of Target, Nike 6.0, Red Bull, and the X-Gaymes. And a nice retirement for their old man.


    KOS...Peru is a 3 month journey. Scheduled for my 2013 sabbatical if the world doesn't end in 2012.

  5. I was saying the teen angst bloggtheme--did you get it from me? Don't flatter youselv: I invent all this shit!

  6. Be aware that your creative energies could really be at their peak right now. So if there’s anything you do to express yourself that’s at all artistic, now’s a good time to focus your attention on it. Just don’t forget to take a little time to get out and enjoy yourself a bit.

  7. Hey, just make sure that whatever happens, the good, the bad, and most especially the UGLY...that you please chronicle that shit on here for the rest of us to enjoy.
    I want to be interviewed about how and when you started your descent.
