Seth Godin says to own your brand.  Meaning, to make up a word to describe what you do, so that way it costs you far less to dominate search and generally be the top of the mind name for what you do.

Since I am my own brand… I guess, like any band or creative force, I own my own brand.  When I goggle me, I am first on the list! huzzah!

Sadly, its my MySpace that comes up before this blog, but the blog is number two.

On my old MySpace blog back in the halcyon days when people actually used their MySpace accounts, I did a feature called “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.”  I think part of me wants to resurrect that feature so I can talk about news articles I come across like this gem: Teen with No Licence, High on Drugs, Crashes Car

This kid packs the bongs, takes a puff then decides its a good idea to take Mommy and Daddy’s car for a spin.  He pulls an illegal U-turn and causes a man riding a Harley to t-bone the car.  The rider flies over the hood and is injured.  Then the hilarity ensues:
The teen was given a ticket for driving without a valid licence and unsafe U-turn and was also issued a 24-hour suspension for driving under the influence of marijuana.

A 24-hour suspension?  The kid doesn’t even have a licence… how about a forever suspention till he figures out life and takes the test like everyone else.

What makes this story even more tragic is that a Harley driver was injured… and after my broadcast from Steve Drane Harley Davidson, I have a new goal.

01) Learn Graphic Design and Create a Media Press Kit for Myself
02) get Married
03) achieve a University Degree
04) Own a Harley!

as you can imagine, I have a kinship with my fallen rider.

and in case you’re wondering what sorta bike I’ll want to upgrade the scooter too: Harley Davidson Nightster

nightster

I’m not married to THIS bike by any means, but something small and classic looking like it.  There was a ton of bikes at Steve Drane that I instantly fell in love with.

OK, put the dreams down, back to the brass tax of life.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day yesterday crushed.  It was almost a Father’s day too… such a perfect day off with my girls.  Mads spoiled Mom with lots of presents and then she helped me whip up some eggs benny for the future Mrs. Baker.

We watched Zathura! Nice… and a commercial I voiced came on the TV which made me feel like a rock star.

In the afternoon, we took a walk along Dallas Road and drive through Oak Bay looking at all the houses we hope to one day be able to afford.

Then Alix came over to craft some brilliant ribs and Coral’s family came over for dinner and a spirited game of World Monopoly… which I won!

Alright, I gotta get ready to hop on the radio for a radio show.

Go with yourself.
