An Asian man can blush too.


Last night I was sitting on a couch watching Eddie paint. I love watching this guy create. It is so easy to get hypnotized observing his process. In a couple of hours we are flying to Vegas for the day. There is this new hotel that is going to be built on the strip and Eddie might get commissioned to do the art for the hotel. Eddie is indifferent about the whole deal because he feels that accepting the offer would make him a sell out. Artists are freakin ridiculous! Money is money, and if you earn it now you have more time to do whatever you want later!

While Eddie was working, I picked up my laptop so I could make reservations for a car to pick us up at the airport, and look for a hotel to stay the night in. That is when I noticed that I had a couple of emails from my blog. They were both about how I was featured on, Debriefing the Boys. At first I was completely mortified that I was mentioned on Matt's blog, because people actually read his blog! Then I realized that wasn't it, because I already have readers. It was because he actually took the time to make an entire post about me, and how much he enjoyed my blog. Last night I was embarrassed to take a look at what he wrote, so I looked this morning. He really knows how to make a boy feel special.

This is a picture of myself and my CIT. He had a lot of energy, and we were crazy whenever we were together! The kids always got a kick out of us. I often wondered what it would feel like to be flipped like this, and now I know, because Matt totally just flipped me! Eddie and I are headed for the airport now, and I am feeling good. I just have this awful feeling that I am going to need to start proof reading my posts before I publish them now that Matt has made me famous, and I am way to lazy to do that!

You must be a strong guy to throw that boy like that! That poor kid! I wonder what it feels like to be thrown in the air that way also. Great pick! I hope that you have fun in Vegas.

Do you remember a show on Nickelodeon called, "Salute your Shorts"? That is how I imagine the whole summer camp experience. You seem to have found the rated R version of this show in real life. Sounds like a party!

Kewl pic! Do not worry about proof reading, you seldom make noticable mistakes in your posts. It's part of your charm! Do your best to get your boy to accept this huge deal so you can have a sugar daddy! KIDDING! Its really nice to hear about somebody with so much integrity that they would rather pass up on a huge pay check than compromise their own values. Have fun in Las Vegas.

You are way to cute! I love your blog! I think that I just spent an hour going through this. Your art is amazing and your writing style is very unique. You seem like a very sincere and caring soul. Keep up the good work.

Marc said...

Wow you are going to Las Vegas!? I am very jealous! You are not even old enough to gamble. I am the one that could be having all the fun in Vegas! hahaha! I love this picture, that looks like a good time. I think that I want to try that one of these days. Do your best into talking your little artist boy into accepting that deal. It will do him more harm than good in the long run. Just tell him that the more he sells out the easier it gets! Yeah I am evil and I know it! LOL!

Matt said...

I'm sorry if I embarrassed you!!! I noticed that you have a lot of comments, so I figured you were a pretty popular dude. I hope I didn't make you uncomfortable! And don't worry about proofreading. People love you the way you are. That's why I posted about you! I can't wait to meet you. I'm sorry you can't join me on Friday at the premiere.

Another action pic... Man, that's your life! Whether it's sports, camp, or just hanging with your buds... there's action! Awesome! Matt does have a great blog... that's how I found your blog (after you left a comment there). Have fun with Eddie in Vegas - I wish him luck with the possible commission!

I am tired from just looking over your blog! You have a lot of energy and it seems like you are always doing something! My life consists of my couch, the gym and occasionally I go out to a bar and let guys by me beers! I have no idea how a person can do so much. I love your blog and you are an incerdibly high energy person. Keep up the positivity and creativity. You are beyond awesome.

You are 12 kinds of cool! I love your blog soo much! I need to thanks Matt for his post the other day, or I would have never found it. You are the antithesis of the typical gay LA guy. It is so refreshing to read a blog like this and realize that you are just a guy trying to live his life as such! To many of us get caught up in things that the straight community would consider, "gay", but you keep on living your life, your way. You are a talented athlete, a great artist, and a caring and nurturing person! I think that I am in love... hahaha. Keep up the good work. You made my day!

You are an amazing person. I read your blog from beginning to end today and I was completely blown away with it. I am very impressed with the way that you live your life, and I think that you should be very happy with yourself also. This past month has put you through a lot of changes and it seems like you are coming out the other side of this in pretty good shape.

Your blog is filled with so muh raw emotion and hope. I look at your art and I see where you channel your anger and frusturation and that is a good thing that you have a place for that. It really seems like not having your surfboard around has forced you to deal with a lot of issues that you have been hiding from for a very long time.

Maybe this was God telling you that it was time to he who you really are. I think that you are a good and kind hearted person and I am going to look forward to reading your blog from now on. I wish you the best of luck with all the things that you have going on in your life, and I can't wait to see what you have planned for yourself next!
