My life in February.

T.V. Ready

In Korea, I get approached. Seoul buzzes with over 10 million people and about 10% of that bundle are different looking foreigners. You would think the fascination would fade.

Not so.

At times I have been zeroed-in-on by an old man, simply because he likes my beard. Other times, middle school students will put an iPhone in my face and start asking questions for an English class project. They ask me question like what sports do you like? Do you watch Korean dramas? Or, the worst so far: What is your favorite band, Metallica? To which I reply, "No. God no. America does not like them anymore. Please tell all of your friends what I just said."

At times it is very entertaining. At other times, quite inconvenient. But, in some rare circumstances, it can also be profitable.

My friend Michael called me on a Thursday and told me that one of the national T.V. news networks wanted some Americans in a news clip. The show's producer approached him at a random coffee shop and just simply started talking. He mentioned that they just wanted to interview us about Korea and film us walking around.  "And, oh yeah, they will pay us 50 bucks," he slips out over the phone.


So, on a slightly chilly Saturday, my good friend and I joined a crew of four Koreans, two other interviewees from Japan and had us a nice little day on camera.

Valentine's Day-The Right Way

Gentlemen, feast your eyes on the best Valentine's Day possible.

 In Korea, they have this wonderful tradition where the women treat the men on Valentine's Day.

So, when my lovely fiance Liz asked me, "Where do you want to go for Valentine's day?"

I promptly grunted, "All you can eat BBQ." I'm telling you, fella's, life is good in Korea. The pictures below are of my Valentine's Night. I couldn't have dreamed it up any better.

I apologize to my vegetarian friends for the explicit images below, but I had to share the goodness that was February 14th, 2012.


And the little lady even made this cake, from scratch no less! She is truly remarkable. But then again, it was Korean Valentine's Day.

Photo Club

Today played out as such. I, and six other wildly creative people, waddled into a cafe around 11:30 a.m. and simply took it over. We set up shop in a separated room in the corner of the two story cafe, drenched a chair with our jackets and littered a table with our photo gear.

The beauty of photo club is that it's not really a club at all. It's just a bundle of my friends sitting, talking, laughing, sharing and simply enjoying the moment. Sure, we eventually take pictures. But it's not about that. It's doing instead of simply saying.

One day, one of us said, "let's start a photo club."

We did.

Last week, another person said, "let's make a stop motion video with a piece of paper being the main character."

So, today, we did.

I really like it.

Here are some pics I took after we finished our video (which
I will post next week).
