  1. Hi Eternal Light and Sugar Plum :)

    Thanks for being so sweet. I went to visit my uncle late last night, and he was still quite upset by the whole thing. He kinda referenced what Del was saying, that this was not much of a major quake and since he's lived here in California pretty much all of his life, he's seen worse. Nonetheless, he had never been cutting sheet metal when an earthquake had occurred. He won't gain complete mobility in his thumb, but it's better than having lost it completely.

    Oddly, I learned of another injury that occurred during the earthquake.... a friend of mine has parents who live in the city of Chino. Her father, who is in his early 70's, was on a ladder in the living room trying to change the battery on their smoke detector. They have vaulted ceilings and it was a pretty high ladder. Well, he was rattled off the ladder, fell and broke his arm. :(

    All the news channels this morning where going on incessantly about being prepared for the "big one." My co-workers are all paranoid today in the office. Man, the truth is, we'll never know when it may strike. It could be tomorrow, it could be in 100 years.

    In the meantime, I'll continue to live each day like it's my last, crack open a beer in the evenings and groove to Zeppelin!!!! :D


  2. Thank you, Memphis and everyone for your good wishes. Everyone who I talked to today felt the earthquake shake. It blew everyone's minds. My phone service stopped as soon as the quake hit. I inspected for gas leaks and did not notice any.

    So far there have been no major aftershocks that I have experienced or heard about; crossing my fingers.

    Ditto on the best wishes. I was in the city of Orange, in Orange County and I was on the 10th floor of a building. It did NOT feel good at all, as we swayed sideways and rattled.

    All's okay around me, except for my uncle who's a machinist and cut off his entire left thumb. He was sawing some metal, got distracted with the rattling and he sawed through his left thumb. I was told that they have reattached it.... damn shame. :(


  3. :thumbsup: Great photos Zoso4Vida!! Must have been an amazing moment. So glad you had the experience and thanks for sharing.

    Thanks sweetie! Yes, it was an amazing moment. He was very nice and very polite. I remember looking at my right hand moments after I touched his face and remembered how warm his face was. I know that sounds cheezy as hell, but I was just awestruck over having kissed his cheek. :D


  4. Here's Lori's (Zoso4Vida's) pics:

    Hey Ev!!! You're the bomb, brother!!! Thank you so much for teaching me how to do this. How does that saying go.... if you give a person a fish, they can eat only one, but if you teach a person how to fish.... then they can eat fish forever or some shit.

    Anyways, thanks for helping me with those pictures. I'm still trying to get used to seeing myself with braces; I feel like such a dumbass and I was so damn excited in that first photo, I just couldn't keep from smiling. But good looking out, sweetie!!! Let's go to NAMM together next year!

    Cheers yo, --Z4V! (we need that beer clashing siggy thing back up in here.)


  5. Wow!! Great story. Though you didn't get to Slash's photograph and picture, I imagine meeting Jason more than made up for it. :D

    Thanks for sharing!

    Oh hells yeah! Meeting Jason more than makes up for the failure to immortalize my moment with Slash.

    All I can do now is just stare at my pictures with Jason (and lament the fact that I didn't have time to choose a better outfit and throw on make-up!) LMAO!!!

    Send me a PM with your e-mail so that I can send you the photos or if you'd like, there's a thread on PZ with my photos on there.

    Peace, -- Zoso4Vida :D


  6. What did he smell like?

    He smelled good! I got close enough to smell him, lol. :D

    Hi ANGI!!! :P (waving hello) Did you get all of the other pics I shared with you? Hey Angi, since I'm stupid with all this uploading crap, would you be able to upload my pics with Jason? I can't figure out how to do it here. I uploaded them on PZ, but I just can't find how to do that here. :(


  7. Hey everyone, Pat's Delight, dude, I'm glad you got to meet him too!!!!

    So I'm at the NAMM show in Anaheim, California on Friday and I'm in line to meet, photograph and get a picture of Slash, who I had been dying to meet for years, when a friend of mine runs up to me and says "Jason Bonham is right over there!" I jump out of line sure enough, we caught up to Jason as he was walking towards the Zildjian exhibit area. He looked at my friends and I (because no one seemed to know who he was but he could tell that we were trailing him.) So his security people tell us he'd be doing his own meet and greet in a few minutes.

    We got in line and sure enough, others slowly started to converge. I told him that he did an excellent job at the O2 arena, showed him my 4 symbols tattoo on my back and just chatted for a bit. I was so damn excited, but now the enormity of the situation is starting to hit me. I'm so damn happy!!!

    By the time I got back to Slash's line, he was done and I only got to shake his hand as he walked past me. And to top it off, one of my friends had borrowed my camera at that moment. Oh well, but at least I got to meet Jason! I also got to meet a few other people over the weekend, Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers,) Dave Navarro, Mick Marrs, Stevie Wonder, Bootsie Collins, Kerry King, Paul Stanley and dang, just a bunch of people.

    How do I upload photos on here?

    Archmagician glad you were able to make it in!!! Hope to see you soon. :)


  8. Details please....or as much as you want to share! :)

    I don't think I can upload pictures here.... how would I do that?
